ARCHIVE OF PUBLISHED ARTICLES OF YET ANOTHER OF MASSIVELY SUPPRESSED STORY INVOLVING THE FAMILY WHO IS ABOVE ALL LAWS - THE BUSHES
In the high stakes world of global politics, it is common practice to procure sexual favors in the hopes to gain leverage or to gain power through blackmail. It's done all the time. The Soviets did it. The Americans do it, and many other countries as well. This following is the bizarre and very real child sexual prostitution ring involving the Republican elite of Washington. And the trail leads right up to George H. W. Bush. Read the chilling story.

SEX AND THE CAPITAL
KARLYN BARKER, WASHINGTON POST, JULY 24, 1990: The alleged leader of what authorities have called the largest male prostitution operation in the Washington area surrendered to federal agents yesterday and pleaded not guilty to racketeering charges that have been filed against him and three alleged accomplices. Henry W. Vinson, 29, of Williamson, W.Va., a coal miner's son accused of setting up the homosexual escort service, was arraigned in U.S. District Court here yesterday afternoon after turning himself in to Secret Service agents . . . At a news conference after the arraignment, [U.S. Attorney Jay] Stephens said the investigation into the alleged prostitution ring "is concluded" and that the indictment, which was unsealed yesterday, focused on those who allegedly set up the ring rather than on clients who reportedly patronized it. Asked about earlier reports that some of those clients included high-level officials in the Reagan and Bush administrations, Stephens said the investigation had not revealed "additional conduct which suggests criminal conduct on behalf of other people." . . . The Vinson case provoked additional notice after The Washington Times published reports last summer suggesting that the alleged prostitution ring had been patronized by government officials. The Times named as clients several low-level government employees and Craig J. Spence, a Washington lobbyist and party-giver who, the paper said, took friends and prostitutes on late-night tours of the White House. Spence was found dead in a Boston hotel room last fall, and authorities ruled his death a suicide . . . To date, however, investigators have disclosed no evidence linking any high-level government official to the escort service.

In which we hear of the appointment of a coroner who had been convicted of bribery and who supposedly had been married to a Henry Vinson, a mortician who had operated a "call boy" service utilized by White House officials
This is the hook into a long story.
We now turn to some news stories that appeared in the Washington Times more than a decade ago, but apart from a few having to do with Barney Frank, these stories have never generated much attention. We then recover as full a story as can be constructed from accounts in the press, in chronological order.

Gobie claimed that Mr. Spence said to him, "Do you know what kind of power you can have over people if you've got something on them? . . . I need boys and girls for people in government and high-level businessmen for my parties, for individuals, for whatever comes up."

MINGO HIRES CONTROVERSIAL DOCTOR,

Maryclaire Dale, The Charleston Gazette; News, July 01, 1997.
Returning full circle to the Mingo case, we find the newly appointed medical examiner of Mingo County arguing that the fact that she is a physician argues in favor of her having the position over the previous nominee, a funeral home owner. Shafer argues: "A physician has nothing to gain from a suicide. A mortician does. He would probably process the body for burial," she said. "I don't think it's [the funeral industry] a charity business." Ironically, Shafer's "husband" is Henry Vinson, a former mortician and coroner who is linked, as we saw above, to the child sex ring scandals. We also learn that his lawyer is the legal commentator Greta van Susteren.

MINGO MESS BAFFLING TANGLE
The Charleston Gazette Editorial;

Pg. P4A July 03, 1997, Thursday
PERHAPS world chess champion Garry Kasparov (or his nemesis, the Deep Blue computer) would have the mental capacity to keep track of the amazing complexities involving Mingo County public officials.
--------------------------------------------------------------------------------
Vinson vowed that he'd never be convicted, because he said his "call boy" service had been utilized by officials of the Moore administration in Charleston and by officials of the Reagan-Bush White House in Washington.
--------------------------------------------------------------------------------
Consider:
State Sen. Truman Chafin, D-Mingo, was indicted on federal wiretap charges in his messy divorce, but was found innocent.
Former Mingo Sheriff Gerald Chafin - no relation to Truman, and part of a rival Democratic faction - likewise was indicted on federal wiretap charges, supposedly stemming from an attempt to blackmail a "whistleblower" deputy, but likewise was found innocent.
Ex-Sheriff Chafin, a mortuary owner, was appointed coroner by Mingo County's commissioners - but state rules require that coroners be physicians, so he couldn't take the post.

Next the commissioners gave the job to Dr. Diane Shafer of Mingo County, who previously was convicted of bribery in nearby Kentucky. (She had been under investigation in Kentucky for suspected overbilling, but she married the overbilling investigator and gave him $ 42,500. They both were convicted of bribery, and he of bigamy, but the convictions were set aside. West Virginia's Board of Medicine has set August hearings on whether to revoke her license.)

Meanwhile, Dr. Shafer may - or may not - have married a former Mingo coroner, Henry Vinson, who was convicted of running a male prostitution ring in Washington, D.C.

Vinson, also a mortician, had been ousted as Mingo coroner after he was convicted of making harassing phone calls to a rival funeral home director. Then he was accused in a paternity suit. Next he moved to Washington, where he was charged with operating "Dream Boy," a male escort service.
While the Washington investigation was in progress, Vinson "died" and his obituary was printed by newspapers around West Virginia - but his sister in Mingo County said the obit had been phoned to papers as a hoax.
In 1990, Vinson vowed that he'd never be convicted, because he said his "call boy" service had been utilized by officials of the Moore administration in Charleston and by officials of the Reagan-Bush White House in Washington. But the next year, he pleaded guilty and got a five-year prison term.
Now Vinson's sister says she thinks he's married to Dr. Shafer. Reporter Maryclaire Dale (who is white) called Dr. Shafer's office Monday and talked to a man who called himself "Henry Shafer." When she asked if his name is Henry Vinson, he screamed: "Would you like to come and have sex with me, you [racial obscenity]?" Is this another count of phone harassment?
Well, that's just this week's developments in murky Mingo, where public officials have always been bizarre.
Matewan Police Chief Sid Hatfield led strikers in a historic shootout with Baldwin-Felts detectives; Sheriff Johnie Owens "sold" his elected office to another politician for $ 100,000; Kermit Fire Chief "Wig" Preece and his relatives sold drugs from the firehouse - that's public life in the Deep South coal county.
Mingo residents must wonder if they're living in a zoo.

'CALL-BOY' SERVICE PROSPERS USING HIGH FINANCE, HIGH TECH

Paul M. Rodriguez and George Archibald The Washington Times; Final Section: NATION Page: A7 Thursday, June 29, 1989
Elaborate telephone switching equipment and out-of-town check cashing and credit card processing centers make it possible for Washington's homosexual escort services to launder hundreds of thousands of dollars annually from clients.
Professional Services Inc., the dry name that appears on customers' American Express, Visa and MasterCard bills when they charge their sexual liaisons with male prostitutes, is a cover for half a dozen different call services linked in a gigantic regional sex-for-hire network, according to an investigation by The Washington Times.
The upscale Northwest Washington residence that served as a switchboard center for dispatching male prostitutes to local hotels, clients' homes and other meeting places was raided Feb. 28 by federal and local police authorities investigating interstate prostitution and credit card fraud.
The escort firm has relocated and - using a 50-line Merlin computerized call-forwarding system - is still in operation while local authorities try to track down individual call boys with information gathered from seized documents.
In want ads placed in local tabloid newspapers and Yellow Pages telephone directories, Professional Services hawks its wares under such names as Man-to-Man, Dream Boys, Ultimate First Class, Metrodate and Jovan.
In its own investigation of the male escort service raided in February and again May 18, The Times has obtained extensive financial records that reveal how the homosexual network handled its credit card and check cashing needs by using legitimate umbrella organizations in the Washington area, Florida, Kentucky and West Virginia.
Members of the law enforcement team investigating Professional Services, which includes the Secret Service and the Metropolitan Police, said a special federal grand jury is expected to hand up indictments based on violations of federal credit card statutes, mail fraud laws and banking regulations that bar illegal activities, such as prostitution.

Operators of the male escort service under investigation denied in dozens of interviews that they have broken any federal laws.
But credit card vouchers obtained by The Times reveal many instances of apparent double billing and what appear to be forged signatures.
As one law enforcement official explained, customers of such services are highly unlikely to call up credit card companies to complain that they had only one $150 session - not two - with one of Professional Services' prostitutes.
Call boys interviewed by The Times admitted that in the course of their work as "escorts" they regularly engaged in sex for hire with male clients.

After paying "membership" fees in the $150 range, clients paid additional amounts for so-called "referrals" billed on an hourly basis. The vouchers reflected fees ranging from $60 to $1,100 for individual referrals. Most charges were in the $150 to $225 range.
Clients and prostitutes said the amounts charged depend on the number of escorts procured ( some clients hire several for big parties), the length of time prostitute services are used and the type of sexual service provided.

Robert Chambers, who handled Professional Services' credit card processing, is a 35-year-old funeral director whose family owns and operates the Chambers Funeral Homes throughout the Washington area.
Mr. Chambers used his family's funeral business to set up Professional Services' "sub-merchant" account with a Sovran Bank branch in Silver Spring. Credit card charges and checks were deposited in the Sovran account, while cash paid for escort services usually was deposited at other area banks, including Riggs, National Bank of Washington and First American.

These accounts were usually in the names of the escort operators - principally Henry W. Vinson, a 28-year-old owner-dispatcher for the services, and Jimmy Mako, 27, who pleaded guilty to a misdemeanor drug charge stemming from the February police raid on the switchboard headquarters, 6004 34th Place NW.
Sovran canceled Professional Services' account after the comptroller of Chambers Funeral Home discovered the secret sex-for-hire card processing scheme. Mr. Chambers now funnels charge slips through another licensed credit card processing company, Executive Services, in Suitland.

Part of the regional escort network is directly linked to employees at dozens of hotels in the area, those interviewed said. Besides helping to arrange "special" rooms for clients, these hotel employees also help to expedite guest requests for male and female sex.
There also are special phone banks located in each of the hotels - some public pay phones and other private lines - reserved for the homosexual network. Telephone pagers are used extensively to send call boys from one liaison to another.
Operators of the homosexual escort ring confirmed that female prostitutes were occasionally provided if clients requested such services.

Among hundreds of charge vouchers obtained by The Times were those of about a half-dozen women who availed themselves of the male escorts.
Gay clubs throughout the Washington area are used by call boys to pick up clients. Many call boys also work at these clubs - some of them "strip" joints - and typically are recruited there by the escort services.
Bars and clubs catering to a homosexual clientele include The Chesapeake House, Brass Rail, Knob Hill, The Follies, Lost and Found, Tracks, and La Cage Aux Follies.

POWER BROKER SERVED DRUGS, SEX AT PARTIES BUGGED FOR BLACKMAIL
Michael Hedges and Jerry Seper The Washington Times; Final Section: A Page: A1 Friday, June 30, 1989
Craig J. Spence, an enigmatic figure who threw glittery parties for key officials of the Reagan and Bush administrations, media stars and top military officers, bugged the gatherings to compromise guests, provided cocaine, blackmailed some associates and spent up to $20,000 a month on male prostitutes, according to friends, acquaintances and records.
--------------------------------------------------------------------------------
How a man whom even his closest friends describe as a flawed, malevolent personality managed to court Washington's biggest names is a quintessential Washington story.
--------------------------------------------------------------------------------
The 48-year-old D.C. power broker has been linked to a homosexual prostitution ring currently under investigation by the U.S. Attorney's Office. Its clients included several top government and business officials from Washington and abroad.
Among the clients identified in hundreds of credit-card vouchers obtained by The Washington Times - and identified by male prostitutes and escort operators - are government officials, locally based U.S. military officers, businessmen, lawyers, bankers, congressional aides, media representatives and other professionals.
Mr. Spence's influence appeared unlimited, aptly demonstrated by his ability to arrange midnight tours of the White House, according to three persons who said they took part in those tours.
"It was a show-the-flag time for Craig Spence," said one person who went on a July 3, 1988, tour that included two male prostitutes. "He just wanted everyone to know just how damned powerful he was," said the person. "And when we were strolling through the White House at 1 o'clock in the morning, we were believers."
One man who was on the tour but asked not to be named for fear it would damage his business said it was cleared by a uniformed Secret Service guard whom the man had seen attending Mr. Spence's parties as a bodyguard.

"For once in his life, Craig was doing something nice. We just thought, neat, we get a free midnight tour of the White House," the man said. Another person on the tour said the group walked through all the public areas of the White House and "even took pictures of ourselves in the barber's chair."

After arriving in Washington in the late 1970s, Mr. Spence was hosting parties during the early Reagan years attended by, among others, journalists Eric Sevareid, Ted Koppel and William Safire; former CIA Director William Casey; the late John Mitchell, attorney general in the Nixon administration; conservative activist Phyllis Schlafly; Ambassador James Lilley; and Gen. Alfred M. Gray, the commandant of the Marine Corps.

Arnaud de Borchgrave, editor-in-chief of The Times, went to dinner once at Mr. Spence's home to honor Mr. Lilley.
Efforts to reach Mr. Spence in the past week were unsuccessful.

He contacted The Washington Times yesterday in response to a telefaxed message but hung up when queried about his activities.
According to many current and former friends,

Mr. Spence was a dangerous friend to cultivate. Several former associates said his house on Wyoming Avenue was bugged and had a secret two-way mirror, and that he attempted to ensnare visitors into compromising sexual encounters that he could then use as leverage.

One man described having a limousine sent to his home by Mr. Spence and being brought to a gathering at which several young men tried to become friendly with him. "I didn't bite; it's not my inclination," the man said. "But he used his homosexual network for all it was worth."

The man, a business associate of Mr. Spence who was on the White House tour, said: "He was blackmailing people. He was taping people and blackmailing them."
One former friend said he saw an 8-foot-long, two-way mirror overlooking the library of Mr. Spence's home which, he said, he was later told was used for "spying on guests."
Georgetown University law professor Richard Gordon said he was a close friend of Mr. Spence's until his "behavior began deteriorating quite markedly."

Mr. Gordon recalled being at a gathering at Mr. Spence's home and having a conversation with veteran NBC and CBS correspondent Liz Trotta.
"We were sitting in a corner, talking about our mutual concern about Craig's physical condition. He came down later and said he had been listening to us and didn't appreciate it at all," Mr. Gordon said.

Ms. Trotta, contacted in New York City, yesterday confirmed Mr. Gordon's comments and said it was "one in a series of incidents" in which she began to question Mr. Spence's emotional and physical stability.
"He was fragmenting right before our eyes," she said. "I was very concerned about him."

One former Reagan administration official who worked at the U.S. Information Agency and is an open homosexual said he went to private parties at Mr. Spence's home and saw a great deal of recording and taping equipment.
"It was my clear impression that the house was bugged," he said. Another man, an Air Force sergeant who worked for Mr. Spence as a bodyguard, said: "The house was definitely bugged. I can't say what he was doing with the information. I don't know that. But he was recording what occurred there."

Several others confirmed that Mr. Spence had bragged on several occasions that he had his house bugged and that conversations between guests often had been overheard. They said Mr. Spence often would come down late to parties he hosted and told close associates that he had been listening to what was being said about him.

Several people also said Mr. Spence boasted about getting control of the million-dollar home on Wyoming Avenue by blackmailing clients in Japan.

William Harbin, a former U.S. Foreign Service official who worked for Mr. Spence in the mid-1980s, said: "He pretty much blackmailed a Japanese client. He had represented this firm in Washington, the Policy Study Group.
"The Japanese put up the money for Spence to buy a big house on Wyoming Avenue," Mr. Harbin said. "I heard he later had a quarrel with this Japanese because he was really using this house to advance his own purposes, not for the Japanese. But he threatened to expose that they had transferred the money illegally, so it made the Japanese back down."
Another longtime friend confirmed that Mr. Spence bragged about the Wyoming Avenue deal, saying he had beaten "a very rich, old-line Japanese family."

Secret Service spokesman Bob Snow, when asked yesterday for records about Mr. Spence's visits to the White House, said only the White House counsel could authorize release of the material.

C. Boyden Gray, the White House counsel, said he did not know why Mr. Snow referred The Times to him, adding that he was unaware that his office was required to release such information. "I just don't know anything about that," Mr. Gray said. "But maybe there's something I don't know about." Federal law enforcement authorities, including the Secret Service, involved in the probe of the homosexual prostitution ring have told prostitutes and their clients that a grand jury will deliberate over evidence gathered in the ongoing investigation throughout the summer.
Hundreds of credit-card vouchers, drawn on both corporate and personal accounts and made payable to the Washington-based escort service operated by the homosexual ring, have been examined by The Washington Times.
Mr. Spence, a former ABC-TV correspondent who covered the war in Vietnam, was one of the biggest spending clients of the homosexual prostitution network, according to credit-card vouchers obtained by The Times. For example, on Oct. 5, 1988, he made four separate payments totaling $1,525 with his American Express card for male escorts from Professional Services Inc.

On. Oct. 8, he paid $600 for male escorts, and another $600 payment Oct. 20, the documents show. There were some months when Mr. Spence spent as much as $20,000 for male escorts hired to provide him sexual services, according to documents and interviews with prostitutes who served him.

Many of Mr. Spence's guests soured on his hospitality when his darker behavior emerged. A case in point is his relationship with former U.S. Attorney Joseph diGenova.

According to Mr. diGenova, he attended a few of Mr. Spence's parties both as U.S. attorney and after he left the government to enter private practice. He eventually traveled to Japan last December on a business trip with Mr. Spence and Wayne Bishop, chairman of the Washington law firm of Bishop, Cook, Purcell & Reynolds, where Mr. diGenova works.
"When I got back from Japan, some anonymous person suggested that he (Mr. Spence) might be using cocaine. Well, of course my antennae went up right away and I checked those rumors out . . . and found much to my surprise that people suspected the worst," Mr. diGenova said.
At that point, Mr. diGenova said, he severed his relationship with Mr. Spence. "When you compared it to his other eccentric behavior, it made sense. But I had no evidence whatsoever," he said.

Mr. diGenova said he never took his concern that Mr. Spence might be using drugs to authorities.
Others interviewed said they witnessed drug use and other crimes at parties thrown by Mr. Spence but also never shared their observations with law enforcement officials.

The saga of Mr. Spence, described by one friend as "Washington's Jay Gatsby," began unraveling when federal and D.C. police raided a male prostitution ring in Northwest Washington and discovered credit-card vouchers signed by Mr. Spence and others.
But for several years - even as publications such as The New York Times were describing Mr. Spence as Washington's ultimate power broker -acquaintences noticed bizarre behavior.
Mr. Spence was generous with cocaine at his parties, according to several people who said they witnessed drug use at the exclusive Kalorama house.
"I know he was a coke freak," said the business associate who was on the White House tour. "A lot of people saw it. His behavior spoke for itself."


Several friends said Mr. Spence bragged that U.S. military personnel, for whom he had built a gymnasium in El Salvador, had smuggled cocaine back to him when they returned to the United States.

"I heard he was selling drugs, or smuggling drugs into the country from El Salvador," said a friend who worked closely with Mr. Spence. "He went down there two or three times or maybe more. He was trying to interest a Japanese firm with buying a fishery in El Salvador.
"I found out the United Nations had rejected a similar scheme; they found if you put more boats in there the fish would just get smaller. So I told him that it was no good," the former associate said.
U.S. Drug Enforcement Administration officials said this week they had no evidence of any such operation.
Others said the drugs came from a more mundane source - midlevel dealers in Northwest Washington.
How a man whom even his closest friends describe as a flawed, malevolent personality managed to court Washington's biggest names is a quintessential Washington story.

Mr. Spence arrived in Washington in the late 1970s. Even intimate friends said his depiction of his background was as shifting as his guest list. What can be confirmed is that he attended Syracuse University and worked as a journalist with ABC in Southeast Asia during the Vietnam War.

One former friend, who became acquainted with Mr. Spence in Tokyo, said that the latter had a "falling out" with ABC News because of his political views. The former friend said Mr. Spence was a hard-line conservative and was opposed to what he described as "the liberal treatment of the news by the network."

Mr. Spence made good contacts in Japan and among Chinese expatriates, often bragging of his close association with former Japanese Prime Minister Yasuhiro Nakasone and appearing in public with a Chinese businessman who once served as an unofficial representative of Communist China in Washington, sources said.
The businessman said this week that he did not know exactly what work Mr. Spence did, but that he often bragged about his contacts with Japanese businessmen and political leaders, particularly Mr. Nakasone.
He described Mr. Spence as "strange," saying that he often boasted that he was working for the CIA and on one occasion said he was going to disappear for awhile "because he had an important CIA assignment."

According to the businessman, Mr. Spence told him that the CIA might "doublecross him," however, and kill him instead "and then to make it look like a suicide."
The businessman also said he attended a birthday bash for Roy Cohn at Mr. Spence's house. He said Mr. Casey was at the party. "One time he stormed into another party with a big, white hat and an entourage of security guards," the businessman said. "It was all rather bizarre."

Mr. Spence's trump card in courting the rich and famous apparently was his access to high-ranking orientals at a moment when Japan was flowering as an economic giant and relations with China were thawing.

"Craig had an interest in the Japanese economy," said Mr. Gordon. "He was very interested in breaking through the bureaucratic level and getting people to come to seminars.
"He developed a kind of genuine and effective influence among important doers and thinkers in Washington and from New York," Mr. Gordon said. "I met some interesting senators and representatives at his parties."

He was doing extensive business with Japan in the early 1980s, some of which former Reagan administration officials said appeared to violate trade laws.
Mr. Gordon said he warned Mr. Spence of the need to be registered as a lobbyist, and documents show that in January 1985 he became a registered agent lobbying for Japanese businesses.

A January 1982 New York Times profile of Mr. Spence was headlined "Have Names, Will Open Right Doors." The article quoted a Washington Post columnist in 1980 saying of Mr. Spence: "Not since Ethel(D-) Kennedy used to give her famous Hickory Hill seminars for great minds of our times during the days of Camelot has anyone staged seminars successfully on a continuing social basis in Washington. That's what Craig Spence has been doing."
Mr. Spence was described in the New York Times as "something of a mystery man who dresses in Edwardian dandy style, a former television correspondent who now wears many hats, including international business consultant, party host, registered foreign agent and something called 'research journalist.' "
Those who knew Mr. Spence best were astonished by his ability to court the rich and powerful.
"He conned people into going to parties - big people, Cabinet members and personalities and so forth," said Mr. Harbin, who wrote research papers that Mr. Spence peddled to Japanese clients.
"Everybody likes to go to a free party around here. He'd have a photographer there, get his photo taken with a great man, and use that," he said.
"He was quite secretive, but from what I could see these things had little or no substance," Mr. Harbin said. "Usually a grain of truth, but he'd build a pile of lies on top of it. Usually he'd start with a photograph of himself with some guy and build a lie around it that he was his top adviser. Nakasone was one."
Mr. Spence also bragged about social companions, telling friends that he had hosted Mr. Cohn, Rock Hudson and others at his Wyoming Avenue home.

The former Reagan administration aide said he decided to sever a friendship with Mr. Spence when he witnessed him trying to force his off-duty military bodyguards into homosexual acts.
"I'm openly gay myself," he said. "Most gays find that type of behavior reprehensible."

Several people who attended Mr. Spence's parties remarked at what one guest called "his personal honor guard." "I don't know where he got them, but he liked to surround himself with tall, handsome, stalwart young men. He liked to surround himself with decorations," one frequent guest said.
Mr. Spence has been living on Massachusetts Avenue in recent months, friends said. His legitimate business contacts have "one by one dropped away," said one close friend.
He has told a number of his friends that he plans to leave the country by Aug. 15. Mr. Spence also has said his health is failing.
"I can unhappily confirm that. He has been in ill health. I am not truly aware of what it is that is wrong with him," said Mr. Gordon.

RNC CALLS SCANDAL A 'TRAGIC SITUATION'
George Archibald and Paul M. Rodriguez The Washington Times; Final Section: A Page: A1 Friday, June 30, 1989
Republican and conservative political leaders reacted cautiously yesterday to a report in The Washington Times that key Reagan and Bush administration officials are ensnared in a federal probe of homosexual prostitution.
--------------------------------------------------------------------------------
Rep. Barney Frank, Massachusetts Democrat and a self-proclaimed homosexual who several weeks ago threatened to reveal a list of Republican homosexuals in Congress, said he was "not surprised" by the revelations.
--------------------------------------------------------------------------------
"There's no reason for cleaning anybody out (of office because they used homosexual prostitutes)," said Leslie Goodman, a spokeswoman for Republican National Committee Chairman Lee Atwater.
"It's a personal situation. It's a tragic situation if people have to resort to prostitutes," the GOP spokeswoman said. "But there's no standard for people in the federal government that's different than for the average Joe on the street."

However, a top Labor Department adviser to Secretary Elizabeth Dole resigned yesterday after acknowledging to The Times that he had procured male prostitutes and was subjected to blackmail threats by one of the call boys.
In a letter announcing his resignation as Mrs. Dole's political personnel liaison to the White House, Paul R. Balach wrote: "I hereby resign my position this date due to the public disclosure of activities concerning my personal life."
Mr. Balach said in an interview late yesterday he was told by the department's solicitor, Robert Davis, he must either resign or be fired. He said he was not allowed to talk to Mrs. Dole about the matter.
"They said they reached this decision with a great deal of pain because I was a valued employee. But they thought that the cloud surrounding me would not allow me to continue to hold a political job in the administration," he said.
"I think they are protecting Elizabeth, and frankly I would do the same thing," Mr. Balach said. "I live paycheck to paycheck. They promised me that they would try and find me another position somewhere in the government, but I just don't know. . . . Somebody else is going to clean out my office. They didn't want me to come back into the office."
According to documents obtained by The Times, the homosexual prostitution ring includes not only Reagan and Bush administration officials but military officers, congressional aides and U.S. and foreign businessmen with close social ties to Washington's political elite.

U.S. Attorney Jay B. Stephens confirmed in a statement yesterday that his office "has been investigating allegations involving credit card fraud" following a Feb. 28 raid on the call boy ring's Northwest Washington headquarters. But Mr. Stephens refused to discuss the matter further.
A Justice Department spokesman said the investigation was being led by the Secret Service.
But the spokesman denied that the government was investigating the possibility that homosexuals who held senior posts during the Reagan administration were compromised by blackmail or by Soviet agents who may have used young male prostitutes for espionage purposes.
The White House distanced itself yesterday from reports that top-level Republican officeholders and Pentagon brass were involved in the homosexual prostitution ring.
"I don't know anything about it," said White House spokesman Marlin Fitzwater. "Nothing at all."
At the Pentagon, spokesman Pete Williams, commenting on The Times' article, said he was unaware of any Defense Department investigation into credit card fraud or homosexual conduct by members of the military.

Democratic National Committee officials declined to comment on GOP involvement with the call boy ring.
But Rep. Barney Frank, Massachusetts Democrat and a self-proclaimed homosexual who several weeks ago threatened to reveal a list of Republican homosexuals in Congress, said he was "not surprised" by the revelations.
Because almost all Republican homosexuals are "in the closet," Mr. Frank said, "there's an impression that there aren't any Republicans. . . . This is the proof of the prejudice in our community."
Bias that forces homosexuals to maintain secrecy about their sexual orientation is an "obvious waste of human talent," he said. "People ought to be judged by their work, not whether they are gay. The whole blackmail issue wouldn't exist if we didn't have this fear of homosexuals."

The National Gay & Lesbian Task Force and the Human Rights Campaign Fund, a gay and lesbian civil rights group, echoed Mr. Frank's remarks.

"The Washington Times story is a rank attempt to sensationalize a fact that should come as no surprise to anybody: that there are gay people in the Republican Party and in this Republican administration," the National Gay & Lesbian Task Force said in a statement. "The story The Times does not tell is the story of the repression and fear that still mars the lives of gay individuals in politics."
The group also challenged the possibility raised in The Times' story of threats to national security from the blackmail of homosexuals in sensitive government positions, saying there has never been "even one single documented case of gay-related espionage" in the past 40 years.
In Republican political circles, there is a clear division between those who want to clean out homosexuals from government and "more pragmatic types" who are tolerant of their private behavior but hate any kind of scandal that will hurt the party, said one close adviser to Mr. Atwater.

"The pragmatists want it (disclosures of the homosexual prostitution ring) to go away. They hope there's no more to come," the adviser said.
"I had no idea such stuff was going on," said Morton Blackwell, president of The Leadership Institute, which gives political training to young Republicans.
"I think it is time to sit down and write a paper for young conservatives who are washed over by all of this propaganda saying some people are naturally, genetically irresistably inclined to this kind of (homosexual) behavior," Mr. Blackwell said.
"We Republicans stand for traditional values and cannot continue to stand if we fall significantly away from them," he said.

"If this (The Times' disclosures) proves to be true, then it would explain a certain resistance to pro-family policies on the part of the Reagan administration which were popular and in the interests of the administration," said Paul Weyrich, president of Coalitions for America.
"You can understand an administration's reluctance to get involved in something if they're going to have to pay dearly to be on the unpopular side of an issue," he said.
"But it is hard to understand why they would resist certain policy decisions which were popular with the public and which were in the national interest: for example, treating AIDS as a public health issue and requiring testing, which was vehemently opposed at the policy level of the administration,."

White House mute on 'call boy' probe
Frank J. Murray The Washington Times; Part A; Pg. A1
July 7, 1989, Friday, Final Edition

Administration officials continued yesterday to stonewall reporters on the growing federal "call boy" investigation, apparently hoping the scandal will fade before President Bush is asked his view of a late-night White House tour that reportedly included two male prostitutes.
--------------------------------------------------------------------------------
"Mr. Bush knows about the story. Yes he does. He's aware of the story," said one White House source who, like virtually all the others, insisted on anonymity.
--------------------------------------------------------------------------------
Treasury Secretary Nicholas Brady, who heads the Secret Service, reluctantly conceded yesterday at the White House that the agency is looking into the July 3, 1988, tour - one of several arranged by a Secret Service officer for lobbyist Craig J. Spence.

Meanwhile, White House sources confirmed that President Bush has followed the stories of the late-night visit and Mr. Spence's links to a homosexual prostitution ring under investigation by federal authorities since they were disclosed June 29 in The Washington Times. But top officials won't discuss the stories' substance, reportedly even among themselves.
"Mr. Bush knows about the story. Yes he does. He's aware of the story," said one White House source who, like virtually all the others, insisted on anonymity.

Press officers have rebuffed repeated requests to obtain Mr. Bush's reaction and decline to discuss investigations or fallout from the disclosures.
"I don't have anything on that," said Deputy Press Secretary B. Jay Cooper, the latest member of the press office to respond.
"There's no gain in talking about it," explained an official who declined to be quoted by name. "It only makes the story grow and helps keep it alive."
The president has not had "serious discussion" about the reports even with his most senior aides, including Chief of Staff John Sununu, according to another source.
Reports on the matter have been included in the Daily Press Summary, a comprehensive half-inch-thick digest of print and broadcast media stories and editorials prepared by a division of the White House press office for the president and aides throughout the complex.

Because the summary is an internal document, officials would not disclose its reports on the news stories. One official said, "I'm sure that the story was summarized, but the president also reads The Washington Times and The Washington Post."

Mr. Brady, the ranking administration official to speak publicly about the episode, appeared nonplussed when asked yesterday about Reginald A. deGueldre, a uniformed White House officer who moonlighted as Mr. Spence's bodyguard and arranged the late-night White House tours.
"Sir, were any Secret Service policies violated by Officer deGueldre's moonlighting relationship with Craig Spence, and, if so, what actions have you taken to correct that?" he was asked.
"Would you repeat that again?" Mr. Brady requested.
"Yes, sir, I'm talking about the UD [Uniformed Division] officer, Reginald deGueldre, who was working moonlighting for Craig Spence and who arranged the tours for him. I'm wondering if any Secret Service policies are violated by such moonlighting, and whether these visits to the White House are . . ."

Mr. Brady interrupted at that point and said, "I can't give you a precise answer on that now. We'll certainly look into it."
"You don't know if your own Secret Service is conducting an investigation into something that's been this prominent?" the secretary was then asked.
"I am sure they're looking into it," he said. "The nature of that investigation I cannot report to you at this time."

A Treasury Department spokeswoman said later, "The director of the Secret Service is looking into whether or not any policies have been violated" by the moonlighting or admission of outsiders to the White House compound.
She said neither Mr. Brady nor the Secret Service would comment on additional matters involved in a criminal investigation by the U.S. Attorney's Office of the homosexual prostitution ring that Mr. Spence patronized.

White House spokesman Marlin Fitzwater and several of his deputies have said repeatedly that they do not know if Mr. Bush considered it appropriate for male prostitutes to be touring the White House at 1 a.m.
Yesterday, while talking informally to several reporters at the White House, Mr. Fitzwater parried one question this way: "What are they saying, that you should have sexual-preference checks on people that come into the White House?"
He also said, "We don't have any involvement that I know of."

Although he has talked repeatedly to individual reporters, including those for The Washington Times, Mr. Fitzwater has not held a general briefing since before the prostitution ring stories broke, largely because of the holiday weekend and because administration experts gave briefings on Mr. Bush's European trip, which begins Sunday.
The last of those briefings was scheduled for today, but Mr. Fitzwater reportedly was considering holding a general briefing as well, his first in nine days.

Mr. Fitzwater and his staff have declined consistently to say if they would take the question to Mr. Bush, a practice done only rarely and generally only on matters they expect the president might be willing to discuss.
One senior official, who insisted on anonymity, said it was unlikely any staff member would ask Mr. Bush such a question, discounting any threats to security and portraying it as a sordid sex matter beneath presidential dignity.

Spence was target before raid on ring
Jerry Seper, and Michael Hedges The Washington Times; Part A; Pg. A1 July 10, 1989, Monday, Final Edition; Correction Appended
Craig J. Spence, the Washington lobbyist and power broker, was the subject of a Secret Service investigation even before a February raid on a homosexual prostitution ring to which he has been linked, The Washington Times has learned.
--------------------------------------------------------------------------------
Mr. Spence arranged at least four midnight tours of the White House, including one June 29, 1988, on which he took with him a 15-year-old boy whom he falsely identified as his son.
--------------------------------------------------------------------------------
The Secret Service last week expanded its investigation with inquiries about friends and associates of Mr. Spence.
Two of those friends are former U.S. Attorney Joseph diGenova and his wife, Victoria Toensing, a former deputy assistant attorney general for the Justice Department's criminal division.
During interviews last week with friends and associates of Mr. Spence, the Secret Service made copies of photographs from a July 4, 1988, party showing him mugging for the camera with Mr. diGenova and Miss Toensing, who in one photo is draped in an American flag.
It was on that same weekend that Mr. Spence arranged a 1 a.m. tour of the White House, which one participant said included two male prostitutes.

The Secret Service also wants to talk to Mr. Spence, but has been unable to locate him, according to persons the agents have interviewed.
Mr. diGenova couldn't be reached yesterday for comment. He has been interviewed twice by The Times over the past two weeks. In the first conversation, he described a fleeting contact with Mr. Spence which, he said, was based solely on mutual business interests.
In a second conversation, he said he attended a few of Mr. Spence's parties, as U.S. attorney and later after he left the government to enter private law practice. He eventually traveled to Japan last December on a business trip with Mr. Spence and Wayne Bishop, chairman of the Washington law firm of Bishop, Cook, Purcell & Reynolds, where Mr. diGenova works. Business contacts made on the trip proved fruitful and are still being pursued, he said.
"When I got back from Japan, some anonymous person suggested that he [Mr. Spence] might be using cocaine. Well, of course my antennae went up right away, and I checked those rumors out . . . and found much to my surprise that people suspected the worst," Mr. diGenova said.

At that point, Mr. diGenova said, he severed his relationship with Mr. Spence. He said he didn't report his findings or concerns to authorities.

Although the Secret Service hasn't said what sparked its interest in Mr. Spence, one of the persons questioned by the Secret Service said investigators appeared to be "interested" in the connections the lobbyist had made.
The Secret Service was the lead agency in a Feb. 28 raid on a house on 34th Place NW used by a homosexual prostitution ring, a ring with which Mr. Spence spent up to $20,000 a month, according to call boys, his friends and documents obtained by The Times.

The federal investigation, headed by the office of U.S. Attorney Jay Stephens and conducted by Secret Service agents, appears to be aimed at determining whether Reagan and Bush administration officials and others were compromised by Mr. Spence, through the use of female and male prostitutes and with electronic audio and video eavesdropping at parties at his house in the fashionable Kalorama neighborhood in Northwest Washington.
Another focus of the probe, persons interviewed by the Secret Service have told this newspaper, is whether White House security was compromised by the late-night tours arranged by Mr. Spence.
Mr. Stephens has said only that his office is investigating "possible credit-card fraud" in connection with arrests made in the 34th Place raid. But numerous sources have told The Times that the Secret Service is asking about Mr. Spence's activities.
Secret Service agents on Friday also asked a former Spence colleague detailed questions about attempts by the lobbyist to obtain information about the Delta Force, an elite U.S. commando team involved in top-secret military operations.
The former friend said Mr. Spence had given a gold Rolex watch to a highly decorated Vietnam veteran who is now associated with Army anti-terrorist units. Later, according to the former friend, Mr. Spence alluded to the gift of the watch and asked the veteran detailed questions about the Delta Force operations.
The Vietnam veteran was one of six persons on the July 3 White House tour, arranged by Mr. Spence. A uniformed Secret Service guard, who admitted the group to the White House and served as an unofficial host, also told The Times that he had received a gold Rolex watch worth about $8,000 from Mr. Spence but said Mr. Spence had asked for nothing in return.

Mr. Spence collected key officials of the Reagan and Bush administrations, media celebrities and high-ranking military officers, among others, for his glittery dinner parties at his Kalorama home. According to friends, visitors to Mr. Spence's Wyoming Avenue NW house and records, the host eavesdropped on some gatherings to compromise guests and blackmailed some associates with threats to disclose their indiscretions.

Efforts to reach Mr. Spence during the past three weeks have been unsuccesful. He telephoned The Times on June 29 in response to a telefaxed message but hung up when asked about his activities. His fax machine number has since been disconnected.
Mr. diGenova was nominated by President Reagan to be U.S. attorney in 1983. Prior to that, he was an assistant U.S. attorney in the Washington office, chief counsel and staff director of the Senate Rules Committee and chief minority counsel for the Senate Judiciary Committee.

In 1981, as chief counsel for the Senate Rules Committee, Mr. diGenova was responsible for overseeing the Reagan transition after Republicans gained control of the Senate in the 1980 elections. From June 1975 to April 1976, Mr. diGenova was counsel to the Senate Select Committee on Intelligence, the so-called Church Committee that investigated allegations of CIA and FBI wrongdoing.
Mr. diGenova announced his resignation as U.S. attorney in January 1988, and he left office to begin his private practice on March 1.
Miss Toensing, who also is in private practice, was chief counsel for the Senate Select Committee on Intelligence from 1981 to 1984 when she resigned to join the Justice Department as a deputy assistant attorney general.

At Justice, she headed the criminal division's procurement fraud unit and was instrumental in a number of high-profile indictments, including several involving General Dynamics. She also was responsible for the investigation and prosecution of terrorists.

A number of photographs, including more than a dozen from the 1 a.m. White House tour, were taken over the July Fourth weekend in 1988 by a participant in Mr. Spence's revelries. The photos, copies of which were obtained last week by The Times, have been reviewed by the Secret Service.
Of the several snapshots of the July 4, 1988, tour reviewed by the Secret Service, only two - both of which included Mr. diGenova and his wife - were copied.

Craig Spence was a registered lobbyist for several Japanese firms through 1987 and established close friendships with a number of leading Japanese politicians, including Motoo Shiina, considered by Tokyo analysts to be an inside favorite to replace scandal-plagued Sousuke Uno as prime minister.
Mr. Spence and Mr. Shiina were embroiled in a real estate deal involving the house in Kalorama, a two-story Victorian showpiece valued last year by real estate agents at $1.15 million.
By the time a lawsuit filed by Mr. Shiina over the property was settled, the Japanese official had admitted in court papers to giving Mr. Spence $345,000 in cash.
Mr. Spence has told several current and former friends that he obtained the money to buy the house by blackmailing Mr. Shiina. Mr. Shiina has denied he was blackmailed by Mr. Spence.
The lobbyist moved in November 1988 from the Kalorama house, on Wyoming Avenue, to an apartment on Massachusetts Avenue NW, but apparently his operations remained unchanged.

A female prostitute who worked for the escort service that supplied Mr. Spence with call boys, said he hired her to have sex with young military men in his part-time employ.
The prostitute, describing herself as retired, said Mr. Spence ordered her to engage in those assignations in certain specific locations in his Massachusetts Avenue apartment, enabling him to eavesdrop on the encounters. One of her clients, an enlisted man stationed at a local Army base, confirmed that he worked for Mr. Spence, and the prostitute's account.
"Some of the men were married," she said. "They told me he was using what I did with them against them."

Once, Mr. Spence's influence with the Washington power elite appeared almost limitless, demonstrated by his ability to arrange midnight tours of the White House. The Times has confirmed that Mr. Spence arranged at least four midnight tours of the White House, including one June 29, 1988, on which he took with him a 15-year-old boy whom he falsely identified as his son.

One man Mr. Spence apparently cultivated was a uniformed Secret Service officer assigned to the midnight shift at the White House. The officer, Reginald A. deGueldre, was interrogated for more than 10 hours last week about his association with Mr. Spence. Five Secret Service agents, armed with search warrants, searched his house for nearly two hours Friday night, although they wouldn't say what they were looking for. The agents seized several photographs from Mr. deGueldre's home.
Mr. deGueldre said he has been told he will be called to testify before a federal grand jury. According to one law enforcement official, Mr. deGueldre failed the portion of a polygraph test involving favors he may have done for Mr. Spence.

CORRECTION-DATE: July 14, 1989, Friday, Final Edition
CORRECTION:

Due to an editing error, a story Monday in The Washington Times incorrectly said that photographs of former U.S. Attorney Joseph diGenova and his wife, Victoria Toensing, an ex-deputy assistant attorney general, were taken during a July 3, 1988, tour of the White House arranged by former Washington lobbyist Craig J. Spence.
Mr. diGenova and Ms. Toensing did not go on the July 3 tour, which, according to one participant included two male prositutes. However, the couple did attend a party at Mr. Spence's house on the same weekend, during which the photographs were taken

Spence ma[y] be Shiina's downfall
Edward Neilan The Washington Times, Part A; Pg. A1 July 18, 1989, Tuesday, Final Edition
TOKYO
apanese nuclear-physicist-turned-politician Motoo Shiina has been described here as "a good friend of the United States" - and as a shrewd businessman who may have passed U.S. aerospace secrets to the Soviet Union.
--------------------------------------------------------------------------------
The magazine "Shukan Shincho," a popular weekly, raised past allegations that Mr. Shiina leaked sensitive U.S. information to the Soviet Union - allegations the magazine said have never been explained.
--------------------------------------------------------------------------------
Mr. Shiina, 54, a member of Japan's lower House of Representatives, has been keeping an extremely low profile lately amid a swirling scandal involving his relationship with Craig J. Spence, a onetime U.S. lobbyist for Japan and business associate of Mr. Shiina's.
Mr. Shiina has declined to answer telephone inquiries on his dealings with Mr. Spence, but has responded cautiously to direct questions through a lawyer, Chikahiko Soda. The questions have dealt mainly with a loan by Mr. Shiina to Mr. Spence to purchase the Wyoming Avenue NW house where homosexual parties took place.
"If his [Mr. Shiina's] involvement in any of this is true, then it would create a serious political problem for Shiina and his political life will probably be damaged considerably," said Hisao Imai, a well-known Japanese political commentator.
Mr. Imai, head of the Japan Commentators Association and a former political editor of Sankei Shimbun newspaper, said yesterday that there is hope among younger ruling Liberal Democratic Party members that Mr. Shiina will be a future party leader or even prime minister.
"If we lose him, this is a great loss not only for the LDP [the ruling Liberal Democratic Party] but for the nation," Mr. Imai said.
"The reason that Mr. Shiina is touted as a rising star is that he has been previously untainted by any scandal and he is an internationalist," said another political commentator, Kan Ito.

With his own independent style of diplomacy he has established himself as a leading expert on U.S.-Japan relations, analysts said.
Although several Diet members speaking anonymously yesterday described Mr. Shiina as a "true internationalist" and "good friend of the United States," one Japanese magazine came close to calling him a spy for the Soviet Union.
The magazine "Shukan Shincho," a popular weekly, raised past allegations that Mr. Shiina leaked sensitive U.S. information to the Soviet Union - allegations the magazine said have never been explained.

The magazine quoted a newsman covering the Japan Defense Agency as saying that General Dynamics Corp. in 1979 allowed Mr. Shiina to photograph on microfilm specifications of the new F-16 fighter.
In exchange, the newsman was quoted as saying, Mr. Shiina agreed to lobby for the company's involvement in the joint U.S.-Japan production of the FSX jet fighter.
The magazine noted that stories surfaced in Japan that the technical data of the F-16 was leaked to the Soviet Union by "the son of an influential Japanese politician." No name was given, but the magazine followed with a description of Mr. Shiina's father, the late Etsusaburo Shiina, who was a former LDP kingmaker and holder of several key Cabinet posts.

But Mr. Ito said yesterday, "Any charges that he is soft on the Soviet Union doesn't add up in my opinion. He's always speaking out about the Soviet buildup in Northeast Asia."
Mr. Ito also said, "Mr. Shiina is regarded as well-informed on foreign affairs and defense matters and has been known to criticize both ruling and opposition members for talking nonsense on those subjects in the Diet."
Mr. Imai said political circles around Nagatacho - the Tokyo area akin to Washington's Capitol Hill - are talking more and more these days about stories in The Washington Times about Mr. Spence and Mr. Shiina.
He said some rumors hold that the Central Intelligence Agency cooked up the whole thing to discredit Mr. Shiina.
"I hope Mr. Shiina is not such a bad guy as was described in recent Japanese periodicals' reports," said Mr. Imai. "It has been believed that he will sooner or later become foreign minister. But because of this scandalous news, he may have some difficulties in reaching a Cabinet post or beyond.
"The news that Mr. Shiina was closely associated with Mr. Spence was quite a shock to LDP members and those in the Diet. But a possible examination into the matter will not come before the July 23 Upper House elections for which they are waging an unprecedentedly defensive campaign," he said.

An article profiling Mr. Shiina published 10 years ago in The Daily Yomiuri English-language newspaper began:
" 'What should I say about myself?' he asks smilingly, taking a slow, deep drag at his cigarette between sips of hot, steaming coffee which Hideko, his charming wife, had served. Meanwhile, outside, the gently falling snow had blanketed Shiina's quite ample garden, giving up an impression of serene quiet.

"In his well-modulated voice, Motoo talked of what he calls his 'humble' existence.
"Not so, for this diminutive (5 feet, 5 inches) man has been his father's active and devoted campaigner for a number of years. His father is Etsusaburo Shiina, former vice-president of the ruling Liberal-Democratic Party, Diet member, ex-Minister of Foreign Affairs, ex-Minister of International Trade and Industry (MITI) and ex-Minister of Finance."

The article said Mr. Shiina spent his campus days at Nagoya University, graduating in 1954 with a major in nuclear physics, a field in which he was awarded a scholarship by the U.S. State Department for one-year's study of nuclear reactors at the Argonne National Laboratory in Chicago.
Leaving his infant daughter behind with his mother, a friend was found to sponsor Hideko's stay in the United States. "It was quite tough for both of us, but somehow we managed," he told The Daily Yomiuri, crediting his success to his wife's devotion and care.

On his return to Japan in 1954, the younger Shiina set up his own company which manufactures precision instruments. He founded two other companies, one a joint venture with an American firm, according to newspaper reports that provided no additional details.
Mr. Shiina's lawyer said yesterday of his client's business affairs, only that he resigned as an officer of the Tokyo-registered company Samutaku Co. Ltd. on becoming a Diet member in 1979 but still holds a large number of shares in the company and remains an adviser.
In addition, Mr. Shiina in 1979 was a board member of two non-profit organizations - the World Economic Information Service and the Asian Club, the latter funded by MITI.
Mr. Shiina told a reporter at the time that World Economic Information Service collates and studies economic information from all over the world for the guidance of the Japanese government and business world."

The Asian Club, established in 1975, aimed at "promoting economic goals." Mr. Shiina told an interviewer prior to his first election that he devoted much time to a private organization called Participation which sent out Japanese artists and musicians to various Southeast Asian countries.

On July 5, The Washington Times published a story describing a business deal between Mr. Shiina and Mr. Spence in which the latter made more than $700,000 in four years working for Mr. Shiina's Policy Study Group.
Mr. Spence also bought a Kalorama house using cash loaned to him by Mr. Shiina. When he refused to pay back the loan, Mr. Shiina sued.

First lady not worried about hookers' tour of White House
Paul Bedard The Washington Times; Part A; WORLD; Pg. A10 July 10, 1989, Monday, Final Edition
WARSAW, POLAND

First lady Barbara Bush said yesterday that the Secret Service investigation of a late-night White House tour that reportedly included two male prostitutes has not raised security questions the first family is worried about.
--------------------------------------------------------------------------------
Mrs. Bush added that "I'm not into all of this" and said it was "good" that The Washington Post wasn't following The Times' story.
--------------------------------------------------------------------------------
Speaking publicly for the first time about the July 3, 1988, tour arranged by former Washington lobbyist Craig J. Spence, Mrs. Bush said she and her husband have no fears of a security breach.
"Not at all," she told reporters on Air Force One shortly after it took off from Andrews Air Force Base en route here for the first leg of a 10-day European trip by President Bush.
Mrs. Bush, noting that she reads all of the stories printed in the Daily Press Summary, a half-inch thick digest of stories in the print and electronic media, said the reports about the scandal uncovered by The Washington Times haven't alarmed her.
"There haven't been a lot of stories in our house about it," she said.
Mrs. Bush added that "I'm not into all of this" and said it was "good" that The Washington Post wasn't following The Times' story.
Ever since The Times first reported the tour on June 29, the White House has avoided comment. Last week, Treasury Secretary Nicholas Brady, who heads the Secret Service, reluctantly confirmed reports of a Secret Service investigation.

Presidential spokesman Marlin Fitzwater said the service hasn't raised security concerns for the White House as a result of the probe.

White House officials have said that the midnight tours such as those arranged for Mr. Spence do not threaten the First Family's security because they are allowed only in office areas and not the residence.

The tours for Mr. Spence, who has been linked to a federal investigation of a Washington homosexual prostitution ring that catered to government, media and business officials, were set up by Reginald A. deGueldre, a uniformed White House officer who moonlighted as the lobbyist's bodyguard.

Mr. Fitzwater said the Secret Service is "looking into the action" of the officer.

White House officials have said any staff member with the proper credentials such as those held by Mr. deGueldre can give private tours, and after-hours tours are encouraged because they don't disturb those working during the day. The tours commonly include a view of the Oval Office.
"I think they've [The Times] overblown the White House angle. No one knows who these guys are," said one administration official, referring to the associates of Mr. Spence named so far in The Times.
But, he added, the White House continues to closely follow the story

Secret Service furloughs third White House guard
Jerry Seper, and Michael Hedges The Washington Times; Part A; NATION; Pg. A3 July 26, 1989, Wednesday, Final Edition
The Secret Service, looking into possible security breaches at the White House during late-night tours arranged by former Washington lobbyist Craig J. Spence, has placed a third White House guard on administrative leave.
--------------------------------------------------------------------------------
The June 29 tour, according to several of Mr. Spence's friends, occurred after the Washington lobbyist visited the ABC television studios of Nightline and introduced a 15-year-old boy, identified as his son, Will, to anchorman Ted Koppel.
--------------------------------------------------------------------------------
Secret Service officials also interviewed a captain on the White House security detail for more than seven hours over the weekend, although he remains on the job, according to law enforcement officials.
The reason for the lengthy questioning of Capt. Joseph Shober - four hours Saturday and three hours Sunday - was not immediately known, and Capt. Shober was not available yesterday for comment.
He was the supervisor of Officer Reginald A. deGueldre and the other suspended officers during the period when the late-night White House tours, including one July 3, 1988, that reportedly included two male prostitutes, occurred, officials said.

The uniformed Secret Service officer who was placed on administrative leave Monday night, whom Secret Service spokesman Rich Adams refused to identify, worked some of the same midnight shifts as Officer deGueldre and another uniformed guard placed on administrative leave last week.
Mr. Adams also declined to comment on why the third officer was relieved of his duties or why Capt. Shober was questioned. "This is an internal matter and beyond that I just can't comment," he said. "It is an ongoing investigation, and we are talking to a number of people. Just because we're talking to someone does not make them a subject of the investigation."
The Secret Service investigation, authorities said, is aimed at determining if White House security was breached during late-night tours arranged by Mr. Spence and attended by several of his friends.
One law enforcement official said that, while many Secret Service officers and others have taken relatives and friends through the White House on special tours, they usually occur between 7 p.m. and 9 p.m., and that 1 a.m. tours - as arranged by Mr. Spence - are "totally out of the ordinary."
Officer deGueldre has acknowledged knowing Mr. Spence and attending parties the Washington lobbyist held at his Wyoming Avenue mansion. The officer also admitted during interrogation by the Secret Service, according to an affidavit filed in U.S. District Court, that he removed valuable china and other items from the White House, some of which ended up in Mr. Spence's house.

Officer deGueldre also told The Washington Times he had accepted an $8,000 gold Rolex watch from Mr. Spence. It is not clear what Mr. deGueldre did for Mr. Spence, if anything, or what favors might have been expected.
The officer has denied any wrongdoing.
Mr. Spence's name surfaced following a Feb. 28 raid by the Secret Service, Metropolitan Police and U.S. marshals on a house at 6004 34th Place NW, where a homosexual prostitution ring was operating. Credit card vouchers showed that the lobbyist, who has worked as a registered foreign agent for various Japanese organizations, spent as much as $20,000 a month on call boy services.
Mr. Spence has not been available for comment.

Alleged credit card fraud involving a number of escort services that sent male prostitutes to the 34th Place house is currently under investigation by the office of U.S. Attorney Jay Stephens. Mr. Stephens has declined to discuss the matter.
The Secret Service has jurisdiction over credit card crimes.
According to several people who were on the White House tours arranged by Mr. Spence, the Washington lobbyist put together at least four tours of the presidential mansion last year, two of which - June 29 and Nov. 22 - he attended personally.
The June 29 tour, according to several of Mr. Spence's friends, occurred after the Washington lobbyist visited the ABC television studios of Nightline and introduced a 15-year-old boy, identified as his son, Will, to anchorman Ted Koppel.
Several of the persons who went on the White House tours have been interviewed by the Secret Service about Mr. deGueldre and Mr. Spence. Those interviewed said investigators were concerned about possible security breaches and about Mr. Spence's connections to well-placed military and government officials, but that the agents did not elaborate.

One tour participant said some of the items allegedly taken out of the White House by Mr. deGueldre might have been smuggled out during at least one of the Spence-arranged tours. The participant said Mr. deGueldre handed over a sealed box containing "somethign that rolled around" and asked that it be hand-delivered to Mr. Spence.
------------------------------------------------------------
A portion of the editorial said: ''One child, who has been under psychiatric care, is said to believe that she saw George Bush at one of King's parties. This is the same person whose story of a severed head was looked into. Neither tale could be verified.''
That sounds familiar, Satanism, child abuse, and grave desecration is not new.... We hear about it in the news and we see some kid dressed in black with suicidal lyrics.. but where did they learn this behaviour?

SEX PARTY HELD AT AUSSIE EMBASSY 'WE'RE NOT TALKING CROCODILE DUNDEE HERE'
Michael Hedges and Jerry Seper Washington Times; Final Section: A Page: A1 Friday, July 28, 1989
Three female prostitutes took part in a sex party at the Australian Embassy in November that included several members of the embassy staff, according to one of the women involved who worked for an escort service now under federal investigation.
--------------------------------------------------------------------------------
She said she had been to Mr. Spence's house on at least four occasions and that during each visit she had sex with young soldiers whom Mr. Spence bragged he was blackmailing
--------------------------------------------------------------------------------
The prostitutes had sex with at least three men each during the party that lasted a little longer than three hours, said the woman. She said she was paid $800 in "crisp, new $100 bills" after the job.
The young blonde former prostitute, who asked that she not be identified, described the men she had sex with as middle-aged, adding, "We're not talking Crocodile Dundee here."
The escort service which employed the woman is one of several tied to a Washington area homosexual prostitution ring that serviced officials of the Reagan and Bush administrations, military officers, media representatives, lawyers, businessmen and others.
The former prostitute also said she had sexual encounters with U.S. military personnel at the behest of former Washington lobbyist Craig J. Spence, a major client of the male call-boy ring, and with a high-ranking Canadian diplomat at his waterfront Georgetown home.
She provided details about her jobs, including the names of some clients, which have been confirmed by The Washington Times.

Both the diplomat and one of Mr. Spence's soldier-bodyguards have admitted they had sex with the woman under the exact circumstances she described.
The U.S. Attorney's Office is probing alleged credit card fraud involving the escort services, and the Secret Service is looking into possible security breaches that may have occurred during late-night tours of the White House arranged by Mr. Spence for his friends. Two male prostitutes went on one of the tours, according to a person who participated in the 1 a.m. White House walk-through.

The former prostitute, who was interviewed on several occasions by The Times, described in detail paid sexual meetings with foreign diplomats, both in their homes and in Massachusetts Avenue embassies, scheduled through Jet Set, the escort service which the woman said supplied the Australian Embassy party.
The woman said that during the late afternoon November embassy party, the group, which included the two other women she came with, a few other women she believed were prostitutes and a dozen or more men, met in one large office-type room.
"The men I had sex with took me one at a time into a smaller room nearby which was like an office, it had office-type furniture," the woman said.
The men never identified themselves beyond first names, she said. "There wasn't a lot of small talk. We were there for one thing."

The woman also described the interior of the embassy, correctly gave its address and location on Massachusetts Avenue, and depicted the furnishings of the room where she said the sex occurred.
Australian Embassy officials, when told on July 6 of the woman's allegations concerning the party, originally said they would turn the information over to U.S. Attorney Jay Stephens for a full investigation.
However, John McCarthy, minister of congressional liaison for the embassy, said during a second interview with The Times that he and his staff had conducted an extensive internal investigation - coordinated by Australian Federal Police stationed at the embassy - and, while not ruling out the possibility that the November affair had occurred, had concluded that the woman's story was "improbable."

A report of that investigation concluded, "We cannot completely exclude that a clandestine function did occur, but our investigations have made clear that it would have required a great deal of planning beforehand to gain entry surreptitiously."
The report said, "The embassy's investigations produced no corroboration of the allegations."

An Australian television station, informed of the woman's charges by The Times, met with the former prostitute and determined that her story was valid. A story concerning the allegations ran yesterday on an Australian network news program.
"I saw no good reason to disbelieve her story," said Tony Coghlan, the Network Ten bureau chief in New York City who interviewed the former prostitute. "She came to us in good faith and didn't ask to be paid.
"I talked with her at great length and grilled her about the incident and the embassy. It was my feeling she was telling the truth," he said.
Mr. Coghlan said the factors which led to the embassy staff concluding the episode probably did not occur did not impress him, and that he found the woman's depiction of the event consistent with his knowledge of the embassy and Australian customs.
Neale Prior, a reporter for the Sydney Morning Herald, said his newspaper published a story yesterday recounting the television report. He said the paper planned a follow-up account in today's editions.

"This story has only broken in Australia four hours ago," Mr. Prior said yesterday. "If more comes out on it, there will be a big reaction here."

Yesterday, Brett Bayly, press officer at the embassy, said, "Frankly, we're just puzzled. We haven't been able to take it any further."

Kunjurit "Dennis" Singh, the man who operates the Jet Set escort service, admitted that the three women worked for the service during 1988, but he declined to name specific jobs on which they were dispatched.
"This is confidential, like a dating service," Mr. Singh said. "I can't tell you who was dating whom."
He said the men and women working for him were paid only to spend time with clients, adding that he was unaware of any illegal sexual activities which occurred on these dates.

One of the prostitutes employed by Mr. Singh said she was given a W-2 form at the end of the year listing her job as "escort."
The former prostitute provided names of some of her embassy clients, including a key official at the Canadian Embassy for whom she said she was hired for sex at his Georgetown house.
The Canadian official originally denied the encounter. But after he was provided with detailed information about himself, his habits and his Georgetown home - all described by the former prostitute - he said his personal life was "none of the newspaper's business" and asked that his name not be used to spare him embarrassment.
Wesley Pruden, managing editor of The Times, said when the newspaper first broke the sex ring story that names of participants would not be made public unless their involvement appeared to compromise U.S. or friendly nation security.

The former prostitute, who has taken a legitimate job and said she has put her past behind her, also in a relatively brief period had sexual liaisons with a number of wealthy businessmen while working for an escort service at 34th Place NW, which federal authorities raided in February, according to her recollections and diaries she kept at the time.
The service was one of several that, according to federal authorities and others, accepted cash, checks and credit cards to pay for prostitution activities - from both men and women.

The former prostitute said she had worked on numerous occasions for Mr. Spence, the once powerful Washington lobbyist whose name has surfaced in the probe of the homosexual prostitution ring. She said she had been to Mr. Spence's house on at least four occasions and that during each visit she had sex with young soldiers whom Mr. Spence bragged he was blackmailing.
One of the soldiers, now working on a prestigious detail at Fort Myer, admitted he worked for Mr. Spence, and also that he spent time with a female prostitute while at Mr.Spence's Massachusetts Avenue apartment. He said he was paid several hundred dollars to provide security at various parties Mr. Spence hosted.

The former prostitute said on one occasion Mr. Spence forced her to take a bath with two men and him, which degenerated into "an unhappy outing."
The woman said that one of the soldiers contacted her a few months after the bathtub incident and told her Mr. Spence had shown pictures of them having sex to the soldier's wife and that it led to a separation.
The soldier told her that Mr. Spence initially blackmailed him into "beating up a couple guys" to keep his wife from finding out, she said. But Mr. Spence "burned him anyway" because the soldier refused to have sex with him, the woman said.

SPENCE ELUSIVE, SAID TO BE EVERYWHERE BUT ISN'T
Jerry Seper and Michael Hedges Washington Times, Final Section: A Page: A1
Thursday, August 3, 1989

Where in the world is Craig Spence?
A lot of people say they know, but the sightings of Mr. Spence, the mysterious Washington lobbyist who wined and dined the city's power elite while patronizing a call-boy ring now under U.S. investigation, so far are as reliable as the sightings of Elvis
--------------------------------------------------------------------------------
Some friends of Mr. Spence cling to the fanciful story - told often by the shadowy lobbyist - that he is on "one last desperate mission" for the CIA. He often predicted his own demise, cautioning friends not to take any account of his death at face value.
--------------------------------------------------------------------------------
He (Mr. Spence, not Elvis) was seen on a bus at 28th and P streets last week.
Or the flamboyant Washington influence peddler recently made several appearances at a Georgetown disco - sans cape.
Or the man the U.S. Secret Service has sought - apparently unsuccessfully - to answer questions about midnight tours of the White House, is hiding out in a friend's New York City apartment.

Or he's curled up along a canal in Italy with his favorite book, "Death in Venice."
Or he's in Tokyo, sipping martinis with his favorite bartender, Hirosumi Toyama, at the Tokyo Hilton.
Or he's at his boyhood hometown, Boston - or was that in New Hampshire?
Or he's in the green room on the "Nightline" set at the ABC-TV studios in Northwest, waiting to be interviewed by his longtime friend, Ted Koppel.
One member of Washington's netherworld, a procurer of prostitutes who claimed to have subcontracted lots of work for Mr. Spence, says he knows for a fact that Mr. Spence has been staying in Clearwater, Fla., with a Washington lawyer.

Reporters investigating that particular late-night tip lost enthusiasm when they found out the lawyer had died in January.

Some friends of Mr. Spence cling to the fanciful story - told often by the shadowy lobbyist - that he is on "one last desperate mission" for the CIA. He often predicted his own demise, cautioning friends not to take any account of his death at face value.

A former college classmate of Mr. Spence's, who doesn't profess to know where he is, is nevertheless willing to speculate about what disguise he might be wearing.
The woman said she attended Boston University with Mr. Spence in the 1960s and that for two years he faked an Australian accent, that only through recent press accounts did certain old friends learn that he had not been the Australian exchange student he said he was.
Recently, Secret Service agents investigating how Mr. Spence might have breached White House security with late-night tours searched with a warrant his Massachusetts Avenue apartment. The building manager said federal authorities had searched the apartment at least twice.

One tenant of the building reported agents were staking out the place and "looking very obvious." Nevertheless, the agency was said to have been consistently thwarted in its efforts to interview Mr. Spence.
Mr. Spence had led some of his friends to believe that he was seriously - perhaps even terminally - ill. To others, he fostered the image of a man pursuing one last main chance in the Far East or in Europe.
His recent activity was quite a departure from a man who once created the illusion of great influence.

When Mr. Spence resurfaces, he must deal with a federal investigation headed by the office of U.S. Attorney Jay Stephens. Mr. Stephens' office insists for the record it's an investigation of credit-card fraud.
But other law enforcement authorities, among others, say the Secret Service was interested in Mr. Spence even before the February raid on a homosexual-prostitution ring headquarters that led to the capital's summer scandal.
One person the Secret Service questioned for more than three hours said investigators were "interested" in Mr. Spence's connections to well-placed government and military officials.

This person, one of six who took a July 1988 White House tour arranged by Mr. Spence, said Secret Service investigators indicated that their concern about the former lobbyist "did not result as an outgrowth of the February raid."
Questions asked by Secret Service investigators about Mr. Spence's activities were "not specifically and singularly tied to credit-card fraud," as suggested by Mr. Stephens. The service still won't talk about what it's doing.
While Mr. Spence has been a scarce commodity in the flesh, his spirit lingers among many of his friends.
Several say they have experienced a rash of hang-up calls at odd hours.
"It's what Craig used to do when he was upset with someone," said one friend. "It's classic behavior for him."

SPENCE ARRESTED IN N.Y., RELEASED BIZARRE INTERVIEW IS NO NIGHT ON THE TOWN
Jerry Seper and Michael Hedges Washington Times; Final Section: A Page: A1 Wednesday, August 9, 1989
NEW YORK -
He must have thought he was still wearing his red-lined black cape, his wide-brimmed black felt hat and his trademark silk handkerchief dangling at a precise angle from his tailored Edwardian-cut suit
--------------------------------------------------------------------------------
"How do you think a little faggot like me moved in the circles I did?" Mr. Spence asked, his hand fondling the razor blade like the flesh of a lover. "It's because I had contacts at the highest levels of this government.
--------------------------------------------------------------------------------
His plain white knit shirt was wrinkled and soiled, with smudge marks on the back and shoulders from a night on a bench in Central Park. His high-top white Reebok athletic shoes were scuffed, his pants rumpled and loose.
With his belt missing, an unshaven Craig J. Spence - the onetime Washington lobbyist of the rich and powerful who is a focus of a federal investigation - kept tugging at his pleated khaki pants to keep them from falling down.
"Do you know who you are talking to?" he demanded in a loud voice as he moved his back along a wall of a friend's fashionable East Side apartment, his right hand tightly clutching a razor-blade dispenser from which he slid a double-edged blade. "Do you have any idea who I am?"

So began a rambling, eight-hour interview of Craig Spence, the object of a monthlong search by print and television reporters and agents of the the Secret Service. The interview ran from midafternoon Monday until shortly before midnight.
Federal authorities have been pursuing him as part of an investigation into allegations of credit-card fraud involving a Washington-based homosexual prostitution ring he frequented and possible security breaches during late-night tours of the White House that he arranged.
After an initial and volatile discussion about suicide and a tense moment in a narrow hallway during which he menaced two reporters with the razor, Mr. Spence decided to hold court to "impart a few words of wisdom" and to "educate the unwashed" about journalism, politics, government operations, life and death.
"Death, you know, is only painful to the ones you leave behind," he said, congratulating himself on what he suggested was an excellent quote and encouraging the reporters to write it down. "As a matter of fact, I'm looking forward to it.
"At 48, I'll still look good in hell."
What followed was bizarre, highlighted by moments of brilliance and wit, outrageous and obnoxious behavior, unbridled and spontaneous humor, and profound and unrelenting bragging.
"How do you think a little faggot like me moved in the circles I did?" Mr. Spence asked, his hand fondling the razor blade like the flesh of a lover. "It's because I had contacts at the highest levels of this government.
"They'll deny it," he said, his voice rising with anger. "But how do they make me go away, when so many of them have been at my house, at my parties and at my side?"

Mr. Spence's recollections of times past are filled with the names of many of Washington's powerful and those of influential men and women from other countries. Most of the claims are documented in dozens of filings at the Department of Justice, which are required of lobbyists who work for foreign governments.
What they all had in common, Mr. Spence said, was that they used him for their personal gain, and when things went bad, they forgot his name.
"I can't think of one person who hasn't benefited personally from knowing me," he said. "I had the world at my house, and now they don't know who I am."


During the interview, Mr. Spence picked continually at his nose and rubbed his finger across the outline of his shabby mustache. He snorted and coughed up mucus. He constantly rubbed his left eye until it was red, and he said his vision was blurred.
He walked from chair to chair in the apartment, staying only briefly in each spot. He pointed, grabbed, poked and pushed at the reporters to make a point or to avoid a question. He intermittently leaned forward to strike out at his questioners and then leaned back in a defensive mode, lowering his body into whatever chair was at hand.
He refused to answer inquiries he deemed "stupid" and said several times he was going to "terminate" the interview, jumping out of a chair to run to the door. He nearly left on one occasion but couldn't figure out how the locks on the sturdy wooden door worked.

Mr. Spence threatened on four occasions to kill himself. He had planned to do so last week, he said, but New York City police had taken away his loaded 9mm handgun. "That's the great terminator," Mr. Spence said. "Just open your mouth and point to the rear."
The only suicide weapon he had left was the white plastic dispenser of cheap double-edged razor blades, which he displayed threateningly. He fingered the dispenser constantly throughout the interview, pushing one of the blades halfway out to create a knifelike effect.
"The man who cuts himself across the veins is looking for help," Mr. Spence said, his right hand moving the razor slowly along his outstretched left arm. "The man who cuts down the vein is looking to die."
He pulled the razor along his arm lengthwise and smiled, then suddenly moved the thin blade to the chest of one of the two reporters and then to the other. There was silence for a few seconds, then he spoke.
"I am not a person to fool with. You should know that by now," Mr. Spence said.

His threat soon ended, however, when he remembered he hadn't eaten dinner. A mugger in Central Park, he said, had taken his last $100, borrowed the day before from a friend, who also had paid off the last $400 of a $5,000 bill for three days in the penthouse at the Parker Meridien. His credit charges had exceeded the card's limit, and he had had no cash to make up the difference.

"I felt sorry for him," said the friend, who asked not to be identified.
The friend, in whose apartment the interview took place, later discovered that $300 stashed in a jewelry box was missing.

Once he arrived at a nearby restaurant, Ronasi Ristoranti Italiano, Mr. Spence's mood changed again. He became loud and demanding, ordering the waiters around with the snap of his fingers and shouting various vulgarities obviously aimed at shocking both the restaurant's employees and its patrons.
He issued cooking instructions to the chef and chastised the busboys for almost everything.
Mr. Spence, a frequent visitor to Italy, found nothing on the menu to his liking. He ordered a special pasta dish with red, white and green noodles - "just like the Italian flag, but you probably didn't know that," he shouted at the waiter. He demanded minestrone soup, but only after being assured that the vegetables in it were fresh.
He complimented one of the reporters for his choice of wines, selected only because it happened to be the least expensive on the menu, and then proceeded to order three bottles of it.

While lecturing those at his table on proper etiquette, Mr. Spence spilled his wine, knocked over his water glass (which flooded his appetizer of baked clams) and blew his nose on the white linen tablecloth.

After ordering chocolate cake for dessert, he berated the waiter because the piece was too small. "I want to see something brown on this white plate," Mr. Spence shouted. "I see nothing here now." The waiter, quite unhappy at this point, cut another piece and returned it to the table. His waiter's benediction, "enjoy," seemed forced.
At the dinner's end, Mr. Spence borrowed $10 for cab fare to the Plaza Hotel on Central Park South, where he said he had left his luggage. He said he'd be available to continue the interview in an hour.
He disappeared into the night, not to be seen again.

Spence arrested in N.Y., released; Once-host to powerful reduced to begging, sleeping in park
Michael Hedges, and Jerry Seper THE WASHINGTON TIMES; Part A; Pg. A1 August 9, 1989, Wednesday, Final Edition
NEW YORK

Craig J. Spence, the once-powerful Washington lobbyist under scrutiny by the Secret Service for late-night White House tours and theft from the presidential mansion, was arrested here last week for carrying a loaded gun and crack cocaine.
--------------------------------------------------------------------------------
Mr. Spence hinted the tours were arranged by "top-level" officials, including Donald Gregg, national security adviser to Vice President Bush and now ambassador-designate to South Korea.
"Who was it who got Felix Rodriguez [the CIA's former Costa Rica station chief, who became embroiled in the Iran-Contra affair] in to see Bush?"
--------------------------------------------------------------------------------
Mr. Spence, who has spent recent weeks prowling this city's finest hotels, cutting deals with inmates to protect himself in jail and eventually sleeping on a bench in Central Park, faces up to eight years in prison.
Monday, in a tense eight-hour interview with The Washington Times at a friend's apartment where reporters had tracked him, Mr. Spence said the discovery in 1986 that he had AIDS triggered his descent into using call boys and crack.

In a conversation that plumbed the depths of morbidity and self-pity, Mr. Spence caressed a shiny, double-edged razor blade he said he would ultimately use to kill himself and alluded frequently to his impending suicide, a move he said he would take before AIDS debilitates him.
Asked how he thought he would be remembered in Washington, he quoted Carl Sandburg: "Does it matter in the dust and the cool tombs . . ."
Mr. Spence said he left Washington early in July after becoming aware - through news accounts - of the Secret Service investigation. He spent several nights in expensive hotels in New York, rapidly spending his diminishing funds, according to hotel records and his account.
He was arrested July 31 at the Barbizon Hotel on East 63rd Street in Manhattan. According to police records, police took Mr. Spence into custody after a disturbance there. A loaded 9mm pistol was seized, along with a small amount of crack.
He spent parts of the next three days in jail before being released on personal recognizance Aug. 2. He faces another hearing Aug. 28. Maximum sentences for the charges against him total eight years in prison.
Mr. Spence's account of the episode considerably colored the drab prose of police reports. He said he had set up a meeting with a call boy who arrived with drugs.
When the male escort attempted to steal $10,000 in cash and traveler's checks from his room, according to Mr. Spence and police reports, Mr. Spence started the ruckus that led to the arrest.
"They put me in the Tombs [slang for the New York jail] for three days without a phone call," Mr. Spence said. "I survived by offering to be the valet to the biggest thug there, a man appropriately named Heavy, and giving him half my bologna sandwich. I had to teach him not to pronounce it 'val-ay' like some parking attendant."
Mr. Spence, who is central to an investigation into the theft of Truman administration china from the White House and a male call-boy ring raided in February by D.C. police and federal agents, has eluded Secret Service agents and reporters since his dealings were first reported by The Times on June 29.
Mr. Spence, 48, who is being sought by the Secret Service to testify early next week before a grand jury empaneled by U.S. Attorney Jay Stephens, said the late-night tours could not have been set up by uniformed Secret Service Officer Reginald deGueldre. Officer deGueldre and another officer were suspended without pay last week as a result of the ongoing White House investigation.
"Reggie couldn't have arranged anything," Mr. Spence said. "Poor Reggie is a nice guy. I gave him a Rolex watch unsolicited, and he later gave me this little 'dish,' as Rosalyn Carter would say, out of the Truman china. I didn't ask for it.
"Reggie's like an elevator operator pushing the buttons. But he is not the guy who can clear it for you to get in the elevator."
Mr. Spence hinted the tours were arranged by "top-level" officials, including Donald Gregg, national security adviser to Vice President Bush and now ambassador-designate to South Korea.
"Who was it who got Felix Rodriguez [the CIA's former Costa Rica station chief, who became embroiled in the Iran-Contra affair] in to see Bush?" Mr. Spence asked when pressed to say who got him inside the White House. He agreed that he was alluding to Mr. Gregg.

Mr. Gregg yesterday dismissed the allegation as "absolute bull." Vacationing in Delaware, Mr. Gregg said the only time he met Mr. Spence - at an April party the lobbyist arranged for former South Korean Prime Minister Nam Duc Woo - he found him to be "a thoroughly unpleasant character."
"It disturbs me that he can reach a slimy hand out of the sewer to grab me by the ankle like this," Mr. Gregg said. "The allegations are totally false."
Mr. Spence said all of the parties he held at his Kalorama home were bugged by "friendly" intelligence agents.
He described in detail how he rigged his apartment with listening devices in electrical outlets in the walls after he was approached by an intelligence agency that he refused to identify.
"They basically just wanted to be sure that nothing was being said that shouldn't be said," he said.
He boasted that he had "created" important Japanese politicians, conducted covert operations for Central American governments and traveled in a circle of high-ranking closet homosexuals in Washington. He said he would not identify homosexuals in the Bush administration.
"I'm not going to smear the Republican Party," he said.
Mr. Spence described other midnight White House tours, including one he said he arranged for a group of powerful Japanese businessmen who, he said, photographed themselves in the Oval Office.
He alluded frequently to even deeper mysteries. "All this stuff you've uncovered, to be honest with you, is insignificant compared to other things I've done. But I am not going to tell you those things, and somehow the world will carry on without knowing," he said.

After he became aware of Secret Service interest in his activities, Mr. Spence said he destroyed audio tapes and hundreds of photographs, many obtained surreptitiously during his parties. By the time the Secret Service raided his apartment in July, he said all that was left behind was his AZT anti-AIDS medicine.
A Secret Service source confirmed that the agency served a search warrant at the Massachusetts Avenue apartment and that agents did in fact find vials of AZT.
Careening from the wit that had won him powerful friends to glum resignation that "my life is over," Mr. Spence reserved his deepest bitterness for former acquaintences who he said have now forsaken him. "I've had the world at my house and now they don't know who I am," he said. "But they did come, didn't they?"

Mr. Spence said that he frequently used call-boy services and that he liked "handsome young blond, 19-year-old boys," but he said he had not spent $20,000 a month for them, as reflected in credit card documents obtained by The Times. These charges were inflated illegally by one escort service manager, he said. He declined to elaborate but said he fired his accountant over the matter - although it was never turned over to authorities.
During his hour as a Washington host, Mr. Spence dressed in Edwardian finery and lived extravagantly, affecting touches such as scarlet-lined capes and stretch limousines.

Among those who frequented his parties were journalists Eric Sevareid, Ted Koppel and William Safire; former CIA Director William Casey; the late John Mitchell, attorney general in the Nixon administration; conservative activist Phyllis Schlafly; then-Ambassador to Korea (now to China) James Lilley; and Gen. Alfred M. Gray, commandant of the Marine Corps.
Arnaud de Borchgrave, editor-in-chief of The Times, said he went to dinner once at Mr. Spence's home, to honor Mr. Lilley.

Even in recent months, Mr. Spence insisted, he retained enough cachet to set up large business negotiations such as one between the Washington law firm of Bishop, Cook, Purcell and Reynolds - represented by former U.S. Attorney Joseph diGenova - and a major computer manufacturer, Compaq.

He said influential persons such as Mr. diGenova, although aware of his increasing use of drugs, courted him for his network of business connections.

Mr. diGenova was in Hawaii yesterday and could not be reached for comment. A secretary, told of the nature of the inquiry, said she could not divulge Mr. diGenova's vacation telephone number. In earlier interviews, the former federal prosecutor said he went to Japan with Mr. Spence and Mr. Bishop in 1988 on business.

"When I got back from Japan, some anonymous person suggested that [Mr. Spence] might be using cocaine. Well, of course, my antennae went up right away and I checked those rumors out . . . and found much to my surprise that people suspected the worst," Mr. diGenova said.

At that point, Mr. diGenova said, he severed his relationship with Mr. Spence. "When you compared it to his other eccentric behavior, it made sense. But I had no evidence whatsoever," he said.
Mr. diGenova said he never took his concern that Mr. Spence might be using drugs to authorities and said he had never witnessed cocaine use by Mr. Spence or others at the parties.
A spokeswoman for Compaq, which is based in Houston, said yesterday that the firm had no record of any contact with Mr. Spence. She said, however, that there had been dealings with Mr. Bishop's law firm, but she declined to say what they were.

By Monday, Mr. Spence's flash had been replaced by the grim residue of his recent three-day stay in a New York City jail and a fitful night on a Central Park bench during which, he said, muggers had lifted the last few dollars he'd borrowed from a friend.
Located by reporters at the stylish apartment of a friend near Central Park, Mr. Spence first resisted, then relished describing his career.

After initial jobs in Massachusetts politics and as a correspondent for ABC News in Vietnam, Mr. Spence began focusing on Far Eastern affairs, he said.
Mr. Spence said his "genius" was in recognizing before other U.S. observers that Japan was headed for economic greatness and in being able to identify and help Japanese Diet members on the way up.
"I became a very significant intellectual force in Japan," he said with typical braggadocio. "I created three members of the Japanese Diet. It's called perspicuity. I saw a future prime minister in an obscure little man named [Yasuhiro] Nakasone when all our spastics here didn't see that."

Mr. Spence claimed he coached Mr. Nakasone on dealing with the United States, advising him to buy President Reagan a saddle for a present rather than golf clubs and always to mention the former president's movies just before the press was admitted for photo opportunities to ensure the two would be engaged in animated conversation.
Among his achievements, Mr. Spence said, was producing a "brilliant" position paper that persuaded the Japanese to allow the Palestine Liberation Organization to open an office in Tokyo.

He also said he greatly enhanced the reputation of Motoo Shiina, a powerful member of the Diet, Japan's parliament, who is considered Japan's top expert on defense issues and a likely future prime minister.

"Motoo's father, Etsusburo, who was a great man, asked me to help his son, who he saw as playboy," Mr. Spence said. "I made Motoo Shiina in the United States, then he sued me."

The lawsuit over a house on Wyoming Avenue NW, in a fashionable neighborhood of homes of senior diplomats, began when Mr. Shiina sought the return of $345,000 he had lent Mr. Spence to purchase the property. Eventually, the suit would be dropped on the day Mr. Shiina was to give a sworn deposition.

The settlement terms led to Mr. Spence's company's getting $68,000 from the Policy Studies Group headed by Mr. Shiina. Mr. Spence agreed to repay Mr. Shiina $379,000 at 5 percent interest.

The money was repaid when Mr. Spence sold the house for $900,000, and he kept the approximately $500,000 profit.

Mr. Spence said yesterday that he had forced Mr. Shiina's attorneys to drop the suit by threatening to reveal that the money was "hot."
"The money came into the country illegally from Hong Kong, and I knew it," he said. "That's why I could be so sarcastic in my deposition. I knew they wouldn't push it."
Mr. Shiina has denied any wrongdoing in the case. He has specifically denied any violations of currency exchange laws.

Mr. Spence said he later turned his lobbying talents to China, with the intention of establishing high-level influence there. "They have no money. What were they going to pay me with - rice?" he asked. "I did it to make contacts."
Throughout this period, Mr. Spence admitted to leading a dual-level existence, with separate but strong excitements.

On the surface, he threw dazzling parties and weighty seminars, ensnaring Washington celebrities.
A profile of Mr. Spence in The New York Times in January 1982 was headlined "Have Names, Will Open Right Doors." The article quoted a Washington Post columnist saying of Mr. Spence in 1980: "Not since Ethel Kennedy used to give her famous Hickory Hill seminars for great minds of our times during the days of Camelot has anyone staged seminars successfully on a continuing social basis in Washington. That's what Craig Spence has been doing."

Mr. Spence was described in The New York Times as "something of a mystery man who dresses in Edwardian dandy style, a former television correspondent who now wears many hats, including international business consultant, party host, registered foreign agent and something called 'research journalist.' "
One former friend, William Harben, said of those days: "He conned people into going to parties - big people, Cabinet members, and personalities and so forth. Everybody likes to go to a free party around here."
That description eerily paralleled Mr. Spence's depiction of the guests at his soirees. "The town [Washington] is full of phonies," he said Monday. "All of these people I helped have turned on me."

The business was lucrative. Mr. Spence earns $200,000 a year as a consultant for Becton, Dickinson & Co., a New Jersey-based firm that makes health care products for physicians, laboratories, pharmacies and the general public. He has worked for the firm since the fall of 1981 and, according to a Becton, Dickinson spokesman, is under contract until March 1990.

In documents filed with the Justice Department, Mr. Spence said he made $666,774 working for the Policy Study Group, a company of which Mr. Shiina was president between 1979 and 1983.

He made many thousands more for other foreign and domestic companies but said Monday that he had no access to money. He said his accounts had been "frozen" but refused to elaborate.
Mr. Spence admitted Monday to a second lifestyle he kept hidden from most, in which he pursued young "military-looking" men. He bragged of many sexual conquests of otherwise straight men, including several servicemen stationed in the Washington area.
Mr. Spence said he discovered he had AIDS "about three years ago" after going to Johns Hopkins Medical Center on the advice of his doctor.

Sex sold from congressman's apartment; Frank's lover was 'call boy'
Paul M. Rodriguez and George Archibald The Washington Times; Part A; Pg. A1 August 25, 1989, Friday, Final Edition
A male escort ran and provided homosexual and bisexual prostitution services from a U.S. congressman's house on Capitol Hill on a periodic basis from late 1985 through mid-1987, The Washington Times has learned.
--------------------------------------------------------------------------------
"I had instructed him [Davis] not to use my apartment for his illegitimate purposes ... It just never occurred to me that he'd bring people over. I guess I was lied to."
--------------------------------------------------------------------------------
"I had reason to believe that he might be trying to do that," said Rep. Barney Frank, Massachusetts Democrat, who confirmed in an interview with The Times on Wednesday that the escort had access to his house in the 200 block of 8th Street SE.

"And when I found out about it, I kicked him out [in August 1987]," Mr. Frank said.
Mr. Frank said he knew that the call boy - who asked to be identified by his professional name Greg Davis - was a practicing prostitute. But he denied knowing that his former lover was involved in a prostitution ring.
"I thought I could get him to stop," Mr. Frank said of Davis, whom he employed with personal funds as a housekeeper and chauffeur.
A senior-level Senate staffer, whom The Times has interviewed and chosen not to identify, confirmed this week that he called Davis' "massage" advertisement in City Paper, a District weekly newspaper, "about two years ago" and went as instructed to meet the male escort at a Capitol Hill house.

Davis told him the house was Mr. Frank's, and from the aide's description and documents obtained by The Times, the place they met has been identified as the congressman's home.
Davis said that when he used Mr. Frank's residence to operate the escort services, he or an accomplice would transfer the escort services' telephone calls from his residence to the congressman's number via call-forwarding.
The prostitute, who was living with a fiancee at the time, said he used the ploy because she was unaware of his activities.
Davis also said that he serviced customers at the congressman's house.

A former call girl who worked with Davis and often spoke to Mr. Frank on the phone confirmed this telephone switching operation. She said that she helped run the escort services, and also had sexual relations with clients in Mr. Frank's basement home.

Mr. Frank confirmed that he sometimes spoke to the female escort but assumed she was just a friend of Davis', not a prostitute. He also said that on at least one occasion he remembered a "strange phone call" from somebody asking for Davis and his service.
"The guy said a woman's name that he was supposed to meet," Mr. Frank said. "I was suspicious, but could not prove anything at the time."
The congressman also said that he was told by his landlords several months before asking Davis to leave that there were "strange things going on" in the apartment with lots of people "coming and going."
Mr. Frank said, too, that "one time, somebody came to the door and I told him to get out."

When asked why he did not inform the police about Davis' activities, Mr. Frank replied: "I had reason to believe that he was doing that [running an escort service], but I didn't have anything to take to a judge or to the cops."
Mr. Frank initially denied either knowing of or condoning Davis' profession. But during questioning, he acknowledged that he was aware that his lover was a working prostitute.
"I had no idea that he was doing anything other than personal [prostitution]," Mr. Frank said.
"I knew that he personally did some [sex-for-hire] stuff, but had no idea" about a larger operation that advertised in local newspapers, including City Paper and The Washington Blade, a weekly gay newspaper, the congressman said.

Mr. Frank, one of two openly homosexual members of Congress, said he met Davis by responding to Davis' "escort/model" advertisement in The Washington Blade.
"I met him sexually and had a personal relationship with him," Mr. Frank said.
He said he subsequently allowed the male escort to use his house and car for almost 18 months after first having paid sex with him in April 1985.

Mr. Frank also said that Davis accompanied him on several politically oriented functions and also helped to arrange a speaking engagement at a conference put on by the American Association of School Administrators.

Davis said he accompanied Mr. Frank to the White House in 1986 to witness President Reagan's signing of immigration and naturalization legislation.
"He said he was on probation and I tried to help him out. I got him a lawyer and I hired him [Davis] to work for me - no governmental money," Mr. Frank said. "He was my driver, my housekeeper . . . who took care of the car and took it to get it inspected."
The congressman said he wrote a letter to the U.S. Capitol Police authorizing Davis, who also has been linked to the homosexual prostitution ring now under investigation by federal authorities, to have access to the House garage as his driver. Mr. Frank also said Davis played on his congressional softball team.
"That was the only official thing I did," Davis said.
Mr. Frank said he did not withhold federal income taxes or Social Security from Davis's salary. "I considered him to be a consultant," he said.
Davis did not receive regular paychecks because "I tended to pay for some of his expenses. He had use of the car, I bought him a lot of meals, I bought him food to use here, and I paid for his lawyer," Mr. Frank said.
Describing his four years with Davis as "a sexual relationship that turned into a friendship," Mr. Frank said he also paid for the prostitute's court-ordered psychological counseling stemming from four felony convictions in 1982: possession of obscene material, production of obscene items involving a juvenile, oral sodomy and possession of cocaine. Davis also was convicted in 1975 of cocaine distribution.
Mr. Frank said he wrote at least four letters to Alexandria probation officials on behalf of Davis. The letters had been obtained by The Times from Alexandria criminal records with a signed privacy waiver from Davis.
In one of the letters, dated March 10, 1986, Mr. Frank told the Alexandria probation officer: "Mr. [Davis] works for me on personal and political matters which should not be paid out of my congressional allowance."
Each of the letters signed by Mr. Frank has the letterhead, "Congress of the United States, House of Representatives, Washington, D.C.," lists the committees the congressman serves on and the addresses of his Washington and home-district offices.

Two of the letters include the disclaimer "Not Printed At Government Expense." Mr. Frank said it is his personal stationery.
"I needed those letters to continue to operate my escort services in Washington," Davis said. "As a condition of my probation, I was not supposed to live outside of Virginia and I had to have a reason why I was still in D.C.," he said.
On two occasions the probation officer visited Davis at Mr. Frank's Capitol Hill residence.

Chevy Chase Elementary School principal Gabriel A. Massaro - another Davis client who met Mr. Frank through the call boy - went to the congressman's house for one of the meetings with probation officials, both Davis and Mr. Massaro told The Times.
Mr. Frank said he was aware of the meeting with the probation officials but did not attend them.
Mr. Massaro said Davis lived during this period in an apartment in the 1000 block of 25th Street NW.
"I never lived at Barney's house," Davis said.
"It was a favor for me," he said, referring to Mr. Frank's decision to write letters to the probation department.=
But Davis said Mr. Frank was constantly worried about the escort activities being discovered by the probation department, police and the news media.
"He was concerned about security and he was concerned about the publicity if this were to come out," the prostitute said. "He was concerned about the things that a person would be concerned about.

"Yet the excitement, the thrill, so to speak, with being connected to that type of world, which he found to be titillating in various ways, obtaining vicarious thrills being around this type of world, he [Mr. Frank] didn't discourage it, and he was fully aware of the situation as it occurred," Davis said.
Interviews with resident managers and an owner of one of the apartments at the 25th Street location confirmed that Davis had a rented apartment there and was running his male and female prostitution services from the dwelling.

One of those prostitution services called Saxons eventually was disbanded and Davis then opened his own services providing heterosexual, homosexual and bisexual sex-for-hire. The services were called Touch of Class, Male Ad and Bi-Couples, according to Davis.
When Mr. Frank first responded to Davis's prostitution ad in The Washington Blade, he paid for one hour's worth of sex, Davis said.
"The first time the cost was $80," the prostitute said. "He [Mr. Frank] called and asked for Greg and he asked me if I was versatile [willing to assume either a male or female sex role]".
The two had sex at Mr. Frank's basement townhouse apartment in the early evening of April 1, 1985, Davis said.


"He said he would like to see me again . . . and at the door he asked me if I had recognized him," the prostitute said. Mr. Frank, according to Davis, "said his picture had appeared in The Washington Blade . . . It was very, very abnormal to be told who he really was."
Davis said he "wasn't blown over or anything . . . I've been with priests and others in public office . . . It was just kinda strange."
Davis said Mr. Frank continued to purchase sex from him for several weeks and was provided discounted or free sex as their relationship grew.
Davis also said that he later arranged discounted and free sex for Mr. Frank from other male prostitutes in return for use of the lawmaker's house to run the escort services.
"That's an absolute lie," Mr. Frank said in an initial interview on Wednesday. But yesterday the Massachusetts Democrat said he did remember discussing with Davis procurement of male prostitutes for himself.
"He did offer that [call boys] to me. . . . We talked about it . . . and I put him off and finally told him no," Mr. Frank said.
The congressman said he never knew such sexual services were being provided to others at his house while he was at his congressional office or out of town.
"I had instructed him [Davis] not to use my apartment for his illegitimate purposes," Mr. Frank said Thursday. "It just never occurred to me that he'd bring people over. I guess I was lied to."
When asked how he could not have known that his admitted prostitute friend was having sexual liaisons with paying clients in his own bed, Mr. Frank said, "I was emotionally vulnerable at that time. I guess I was still coming to terms with being gay . . . It was a difficult period."
Concerning Davis' actions, the congressman said, "He suckered me."

Sex sold from congressman's apartment; School used as base for sex ring
George Archibald and Paul M. Rodriguez The Washington Times; Part A; Pg. A1 August 25, 1989, Friday, Final Edition
A male prostitute convicted of drug trafficking and sex offenses against a minor used the Chevy Chase Elementary School in late 1987 to run his prostitution operation after the school's principal began buying sex from him, an investigation by The Washington Times has revealed.
--------------------------------------------------------------------------------
The call boy was allowed to sleep and use phones in the school even after the principal left at 5 p.m., while teachers and the children were still involved in after-school activities such as chorus, Mr. Massaro said.
--------------------------------------------------------------------------------
The principal, Gabriel A. Massaro, conceded in a two-hour interview with The Times Wednesday that he had a four-year relationship with the prostitute and provided him with a guidance counselor's office and telephone at the model "magnet school" even while children were in classes elsewhere in the building.
The 48-year-old principal also confirmed that he told the school's custodian to give the prostitute - who told The Times that he has also worked for a homosexual prostitution service now under investigation by federal authorities and the subject of earlier articles - unlimited access to the building.
Their relationship ultimately soured, Mr. Massaro said, in part because the prostitute used his credit card number without his permission to pay for a personal ad in The Washington Blade, a weekly newspaper of the homosexual community.
"I knew he was an escort, but I didn't know he was running an escort service," Mr. Massaro said. "I couldn't condone it from going out of here . . . He may have done that, but I did not know that."

The escort, who asked to be identified as Greg Davis, the alias he uses in personal ads, told The Times he was at the school at Mr. Massaro's invitation "on a fairly regular basis" during October and November 1987 and that he regularly used drugs in the building during that time.
Davis said Mr. Massaro "was very aware of what I was doing and what was going on" when he was at the upscale Montgomery County school, which enrols about 350 children, aged 9 through 12, in the third through sixth grades.
"I would be allowed to use the telephones to check my [computerized answering] service and to set up appointments [with homosexual and heterosexual clients], as long as they weren't set up at the school - that was the arrangement," the prostitute said in one of several interviews.
Davis said Mr. Massaro also explained to him how to turn off the school's audio security system so his calls would not be overheard.
Mr. Massaro confirmed that such listening devices were installed in the school ceilings but denied telling Davis how to have the security system turned off.
"How would I know that these devices were in operation at the school unless he had warned me about them?" Davis asked.
"I normally used the time between 5 p.m. and 10 p.m. to set up the appointments for that evening with any of the ladies or myself. And then after 10 o'clock I would have a person who was used as the driver for the [escort] services pick me up at the school. He would pick me up about 10 p.m.," Davis said.

On at least one occasion, Davis claimed to have performed homosexual sex with a client in the guidance counselor's office.
The 45-year-old man who came to the school to have sex with Davis "was a regular client that I knew," the prostitute said. "When I told him that he was going to come to a school, at first he sounded concerned on the telephone. In a joking sort of manner, he asked me if he was being set up.
". . . The client, after thinking about it for a couple of minutes, said, 'Well, it might be a kick.' That was his response. In other words, it was a turn-on for him," Davis said.
The Times has been unable to locate the customer to confirm Davis' story.
The prostitute said that Mr. Massaro did not know "that I had met a client at the school."
"He knew me well enough to know that that was possible and told me that that was not supposed to be done," Davis said. "For the most part, I agreed. I went along with it because it was a threat to the security of the [prostitution] service to have anybody come to the school."
Davis also said Mr. Massaro never knew that his driver went into the school or about the drug use in the building. "I would be there maybe three out of the five nights a week," the prostitute said.
Mr. Massaro said Davis came to the school several times a week during the two-month period in question.
The principal's secretary, Peggy Monday, confirmed Davis's access to the school, but said she saw him no more than once a week. Mrs. Monday said that Mr. Massaro explained Davis' presence at the school by saying the man was a friend of his.
"I would either use his [principal's] office or I would use a guidance counselor's office upstairs" on the school's second floor where 6th grade classrooms and a science lab are located, Davis said.
Told that Davis had given The Times a detailed accounting of his call boy activities and criminal convictions, the principal conceded that he was aware of Davis' work as a prostitute.
Mr. Massaro said he knew the prostitute was still on probation for felony drug and sex offenses and undergoing court-ordered psycho-sexual therapy when he allowed him to use the school's facilities.
A former school counselor, Mr. Massaro said he talked to Davis's sex therapist about his court-ordered treatment after the call boy's felony conviction in 1982 on four charges: possession of obscene material, production of obscene items involving a juvenile, oral sodomy and possession of cocaine. Davis was convicted in 1975 of cocaine distribution.
"There were some afternoons when he just had nowhere to go, so I would just let him come here to the school and just use the bathroom and stuff like that," Mr. Massaro said.
"[The prostitute] used that [counselor's] office," the principal said.
Asked if he authorized the escort free use of school phones, Mr. Massaro responded, "Oh, yes."
Pressed whether Davis might have molested or tried to molest any children at the Chevy Chase school, the principal said, "Oh God, no. He couldn't have. I don't think so. No."
Davis said he had no dealings with any of the children who attended the elementary school.
The call boy was allowed to sleep and use phones in the school even after the principal left at 5 p.m., while teachers and the children were still involved in after-school activities such as chorus, Mr. Massaro said.
"I introduced him to one of the custodians and the custodian just let him use the facility," he said. "I told him [the custodian] that he was my friend."
"I would leave at five and I thought he [the prostitute] would leave shortly thereafter, but before the custodian would close the building," Mr. Massaro said.
Davis said he advertised his services as an "escort/model" in the classified section of The Washington Blade. He also advertised homosexual escort services under the name "Male Ad" and services for bisexual threesomes under the name "Bi-Couples.
Davis said he and a woman partner in the "Bi-Couples" business also ran a female prostitution operation called "Touch of Class," which advertised in City Paper, a District weekly newspaper.
In his interview with The Times, Mr. Massaro, who is married, at first denied procuring sex from the male prostitute.
But as the interview continued, and a photograph of himself with Davis in the audience of a 1986 telecast of the Phil Donahue show, the principal said he had had a longtime, secret sexual liaison with Davis.
"That's not true [previous denials of having homosexual sex with Davis]," Mr. Massaro said about 30 minutes into the interview. "I did. Yes, I did. But it was nothing, though. I mean it was. . . ." His voice trailed off as he fought back tears.
"My son died very suddenly [in 1984] and I met [Greg] through a friend" - another education professional, he said. The friend, whom he declined to identify, gave Mr. Massaro the prostitute's telephone number listed in his escort advertisement in The Washington Blade.

"I began to know [Greg] and I got to know him very well," Mr. Massaro said. "He became also a surrogate son to me . . . I don't want you to think I behaved this way with my son. I had a normal father-son relationship with my own son, John."
Mr. Massaro's son died at age 19 in August 1984 of a viral infection resulting from drug abuse, the principal said.
Mr. Massaro acknowledged frequent payments in cash and by check to Davis ranging from $20 to $100. He also gave the call boy gifts of clothing and restaurant outings, and the loan of his car when the principal went to the beach with his wife and daughter.
After Davis lost his bank account, Mr. Massaro paid for his trysts with checks made out to Davis's roommate, also the call boy's homosexual client and a social friend of the elementary principal, he said. The roommate has confirmed the arrangements.
Both Davis and Mr. Massaro said the call boy was not only a sex partner to the principal but also a family friend. However, Mr. Massaro said neither his wife nor daughter knew about his secret homosexual sex life.
Mr. Massaro acknowledged that he attended a meeting between Davis and his Alexandria probation officer at the Capitol Hill home of Rep. Barney Frank, Massachusetts Democrat, another client whose home the call boy used to perform sexual services.
"We [Mr. Massaro and Mr. Frank] tried to help him through it [the probation]," the principal said. "[Davis] invited me over [to Mr. Frank's house] one day and said, 'Hey, I'd like you to meet with this person,' and he was trying to get off [probation]. I don't even remember all the details . . . I went as a friend of [Davis's] who could vouch for him as being the person who was trying to pull his life together."

On some days, Davis said he would arrive at the Chevy Chase school as early as noon, when classes were still in session.

"There were times when the guidance counselor's office was not available to me," the prostitute said. "I would actually use the principal's office itself, and he would move to another location and I would sit at his desk using his telephones on his desk."
The phone numbers listed in his escort advertisements were call-forwarded to a Maryland-based answering service called Compu-Voice, he said.

"It's all done by computer. When a client calls the answering service, they hear my voice, recorded by remote from a telephone using a series of code numbers. I would call my own phone number and, through punching in a series of code buttons [on the telephone dial] I was able to obtain access to my own system, and I was able to obtain the messages from the system, and then erase them after I had recorded them into the appointment book," Davis said.
"I let them know on the tape that I usually returned calls within one hour. And at the time that I was at the school, I would check in every 15 minutes," he said. "And I would go ahead and set up the appointments for the evening until Bobby [the man who would drive him to his sexual liasons and supply him with illegal drugs] would arrive."

Davis said he used cocaine in the school with Bobby and that the two men often raided the school's cafeteria for their dinner.
"Bobby and I would make something to eat, we'd play a little basketball [in the school gym], we'd do some coke, and then we'd go out to meet the appointments and to meet the ladies and obtain the commissions from their appointments."

On several occasions Davis said he and Bobby "did use cocaine in the guidance counselor's office," Davis said.
Davis said Mr. Massaro "instructed me on how to have the [school's audio] security system turned off so that the conversations would not be overheard [when he was conducting his prostitution business]. They [security listening devices] were in operation after 5 p.m. when all the administration leaves," he said.
"I would call the security of the school system, report in . . . I would call in and tell them that I would be there until 10 p.m. doing work for Dr. Massaro," Davis said.
The prostitute said he "never stayed overnight [at the school] or anything like that. I would take a nap there maybe - there was a couch there - because I was running around a lot from place to place at the time."

Mr. Massaro said he helped Mr. Davis move from one apartment to another on several occasions during their relationship, and allowed the male escort to store his personal effects and furniture in the school's basement machine room in 1987 while he was looking for a new place to live.
His landlord found out that he was running a prostitution operation and kicked him out of the apartment, Davis said.
Mr. Massaro said the relationship ultimately soured just over a year ago when Davis started stealing from him.
"I loaned [Greg] my car, and he literally stole it. He never returned it. He finally did return it. I sent him money and he did return it," the principal said.

Also, Davis used the principal's credit card number without permission to pay for his escort ads in The Washington Blade, Mr. Massaro said.

A spokesman for the newspaper's publisher confirmed "a problem" that caused The Blade to cancel Davis's ads but would not elaborate.

"I just used very poor judgment, what can I tell you?" Mr. Massaro said. "It was just stupid. I just never thought it through. I just thought I was helping somebody."

After the car and credit card incidents, Mr. Massaro said he told Davis, " 'Hey, you've got real problems and I can't help you.' So that was it and he just left. And I guess it was then that I really realized that he was a drug abuser."
Asked if Davis had ever used drugs in his presence, Mr. Massaro said he "may have" smoked marijuana. "I don't remember that. He may have. He never used anything else, though, other than pot. I don't think I ever knew that, until very recently. . . .
"I've never used the stuff. I don't know what it's like. And we talked about that in trying to get off it and trying to help him get off it . . . Our lives just became very intertwined and I guess I felt as though I could save him."
Davis, for his part, said that the relationship with Mr. Massaro soured because of a lack of "sensitivity" and "a lack of interest" on his part sexually towards the principal.

Mr. Massaro characterized Davis's action in going public as "an effort to get back at me."
He said Davis "was always going to sell his story and I was going to write a book for him and make him famous . . . He said he had a very interesting life, and one day we were going to sit down and write a book, and I guess that's what he's doing."

THE GOBIE STORY; Frank's 'call boy' tells all

George Archibald, and Paul M. Rodriguez The Washington Times; Part A; Pg. A1 September 1, 1989, Friday, Final Edition
Stephen L. Gobie wanted a sugar daddy, but Barney Frank turned out to be "Sweet'n Low" instead - "a sweet guy, low on cash."
-------------------------------------------------------------------------------
Gobie insisted again as he has in previous interviews that he used the congressman's apartment as a base for a prostitution service - with Mr. Frank's knowledge.

That's what he called his congressional sex partner, Gobie said in exclusive interviews with The Washington Times.
"In this business, the term 'sugar daddy' is popular for a person that supports you and sponsors you financially as well as otherwise," the prostitute said. "In this case, I had a nickname for Barney - it was 'Sweet'n Low' - sweet guy, low on cash, that's what the moniker stood for . . . And I told him that . . . And he said, 'Hey, I'm only a congressman, I don't make a million dollars a year.' "
Gobie called "preposterous" the Massachusetts Democrat's claim that he was the male hustler's Henry Higgins, intent on helping him straighten out his life while paying him about $20,000 a year to be Mr. Frank's housekeeper and driver.
"The true story is there were no such compensations anywhere near that level of money . . . I would say the total dollar value that came to me from the beginning of the relationship [was] maybe less than $2,500," Gobie said.
Gobie insisted again as he has in previous interviews that he used the congressman's apartment as a base for a prostitution service - with Mr. Frank's knowledge.

One of his clients was Washington power broker and former Japanese lobbyist Craig J. Spence, who has been linked to the homosexual prostitution ring being investigated by federal authorities.
Gobie also said he would willingly appear before the House ethics committee which is expected to investigate Mr. Frank's relationship with the prostitute, "if my lawyer told me that it was in my best interest."
Mr. Frank has acknowledged purchasing sexual services from Gobie after contacting him through an advertisement in The Washington Blade, a newspaper catering to the homosexual community.
The congressman also has admitted knowing of Gobie's continued work as a prostitute while on Mr. Frank's personal payroll from mid-1985 to early 1987 and while Gobie continued to have unlimited access to his house in the 200 block of Eighth Street SE.
But Mr. Frank has denied knowledge of Gobie's operating a prostitution service from his house and has requested the ethics probe in part out of fear that Gobie will embellish his story to improve the chances of selling it as a book.
The differing accounts in this unfolding story of a troubled 18-month liaison between one of the House's leading liberals and the man Mr. Frank says pushed him into publicly acknowledging his homosexuality seem to capture the inherent contradictions in both of their lives.

Mr. Frank, a portly middle-aged Boston career politician when he met Gobie, led the fight in the state legislature in the 1970s for urban "combat zones" for prostitutes. Calling the world's oldest profession "a victimless crime," Mr. Frank now says he was victimized by Gobie.
The prostitute, in turn, a 28-year-old hooker when Mr. Frank answered his ad for "hot bottom and large endowment," rejects being labeled homosexual or bisexual. Instead, he said he's a heterosexual who isn't good at deviant sex.
"My proclivities, my heterosexuality, precluded me from being a successful escort for men because sex was almost non-existent, and the strength of my relationships with men was strictly on my character, personality and my sense of humor," Gobie said.
"But being able to to have people call you and respond [to ads], and continue to be successful and have repeats - people calling you again - is difficult. And then I realized that I was not going to make it as an escort, either for women or for men . . . So I thought if I was going to make it at all, I would make it actually running escort services as a madam because I have a good sense for business."

Coloring Gobie's accusations, however, are a series of criminal convictions dating to 1975. He was convicted at 17 for the felony sale and possession of cocaine in Fairfax County.
Gobie was convicted on four felony counts in 1982: possession of obscene material, productions of obscene items involving a juvenile (taking photos of a 15-year-old girl with whom he was having sex), oral sodomy and possession of cocaine.
Gobie, whose professional name in the underground prostitute trade is "Greg Davis," grew up the son of a Marine Corps master sergeant who was a budget analyst at the Pentagon.
"He was a very strict conservative person from the military, . . . your traditional gung-ho Marine . . . He wanted to lock me in my room for the rest of my life until I agreed to get a haircut," Gobie said.

It was an unhappy boyhood marked by rebellion all the way, Gobie said. He defied all his parents' moral values and teachings.
"At six, I performed oral sex on my first female. She reciprocated. She was five," Gobie said. "I was having orgasms from age nine on . . . My father came to me at the age of 14, I believe, the first time in the basement of my house to discuss sex with me, and I cut him off right away and I said, 'Dad, I probably know more than you do at this point.' "
By age 14, Gobie had been labeled "incorrigible" by Fairfax County juvenile authorities for skipping 9th grade classes at West Springfield High School and refusing to return home on Friday afternoons.
"Me and my friends at 15 were watching X-rated movies on the family projector down in the basement when my family was watching TV upstairs," he said. "A friend of mine worked at a medical building as a janitor at night and he got them out of the psychiatrist's office who used them for sexual marriage counseling."

A year away from home during his sophomore year at a southwest Virginia boarding school failed to mend Gobie's ways, despite his claims of a promising record.
"I was a standout basketball player [at the private school]. I played for the school team. And I also brought my grades back up to an acceptable level," he said. "I wasn't real concerned with making straight As. That wasn't a goal of mine. If it had been, I would have."

Instead, Gobie turned to marijuana and other drugs after his return to Fairfax County and expulsion from West Springfield High for truancy during his senior year in 1974. He never received his diploma, although he subsequently passed the General Educational Development test, the equivalent of high school completion.
"I didn't start using drugs until after the trouble started in Springfield, smoking marijuana and experimenting with every drug you could think of - everything," Gobie said.

The serious run-ins with the law then began, court records show. In 1975, Gobie was convicted of a misdemeanor marijuana possession charge in the District. Later that year, he received a five-year suspended sentence in Fairfax County for distribution of cocaine and served three years probation.

In 1977-78, Gobie said he attended Chowan College in Murfreesboro, N.C., a fundamentalist Southern Baptist school and one of few colleges that would accept him "to get a school record that would enable me to transfer" to the University of South Carolina, where he hoped to join a girlfriend.
But it didn't work out. At Chowan, "I raised the roof off the place," he said. "I threw extensive parties and I was responsible at that time for the entertainment at parties, whether it be females or whether it be party favors - drugs and things like that."

Gobie said his parents were divorced in 1979 and left the area. The prostitute said he hasn't seen his family, including two younger brothers and an older sister, since. By then, at age 21, he had decided to reject the family name and start a new life as a male escort.
"I met a woman one day in Hecht's clothing store," he said. "I was trying on a suit and she asked me if I had ever done any modeling work. She was just a customer, a very elegant looking woman, a very attractive older woman. And she approached me and asked me if I wanted to have lunch with her. She picked me up."
Gobie says of the 47-year-old woman, whom he refuses to name: "I owe everything to her. I'll never do anything to hurt her in any way."
"Our first discussion centered around modeling and advertising, things like that," he said. Then I went to her apartment . . . She took me under her wing . . . I worked for her. She was a madam. She operated an underground escort operation of mostly females, but she had a few select males also. She had extensive women clientele that she had a hard time finding suitable escorts for. It was very hard to find gentle young men.

"It's easier to find women than men [escorts], apparently - men who have the inclination and the capabilities, who have what it takes to be successful with women as an escort."

Women clients - middle-aged and older women, both married and widows - place more emphasis on obtaining male escorts who are charming, entertaining, good conversationalists and socially attentive, Gobie said, while male homosexual clients are more interested in obtaining "animalistic" sex.
"Male clients are more sexually oriented. They very seldom care about character, personality, sense of humor, things like that," he said.
Since becoming an escort, Gobie said he has personally serviced "more than 500" women clients and "hundreds" of male clients, but would not be more specific.

"There was never an occasion, even before the AIDS crisis, I was [ever] involved in any unsafe sex practices," the prostitute said. "I always took precautions . . . using condoms."
Asked if clients always want him to use condoms, Gobie responded, "No. Sometimes clients are willing to pay thousands of dollars for you not to use condoms. In that case, alarm bells would go off in my head, and those are the people that I wouldn't think of having sex without a condom no matter what the dollar figure was.

"Those are people that are potentially dangerous to you," he said. "Their motivations might be sinister, in that they might have contracted a disease from some escort in the past and now, through some sort of revenge motive, try . . . to infect other people in that business as a way of getting back."
However, in dozens of interviews over the last two months, Gobie has given details of sexual acts including an explicit tape-recorded description of his first sexual encounter with Mr. Frank in April 1985, and it was clear that neither Gobie nor his sex partners were wearing condoms.
This week, Gobie said he had recently been tested for AIDS and the results were negative.
Gobie entered the male escort world through a prominent free-lance photographer for leading Washington-area homosexual publications whom he was introduced to by his female madam friend. The photographer "eventually got me involved in the modeling and escort work through the male scene" - including work for some of Washington's homosexual businesses and nightclubs, Gobie said.

"I did advertisements, endorsements for the [homosexual] bars in town and things like that . . . I was the first 'Mr. Rascals,' ' he said, referring to the prominent Dupont Circle homosexual bar Rascals.
Gobie said he also worked at some of the area's posh hotels as a concierge and front office manager as a legitimate "front" for his escort activities from 1978 to 1984. "Hotels are very valuable places to make contacts," he said.
Gobie said he worked at such hotels as The River Inn in Georgetown, Guest Quarters in Foggy Bottom, the Bristol Hotel, Quality-Inn at Pentagon City and the Regency Raquet Club condominium complex in McLean.

But the roof on his legitimate fronts caved in when he was convicted on the four felony charges in Alexandria in 1982.
All but four months of his five-year prison sentence was suspended, and Gobie was placed on probation for three years, during which he was ordered to undergo psycho-sexual therapy at the Washington-based Human Sexuality Institute.
"I was forced into the underworld by my probation and by the nature of the charges and the fact that my probation officer was breathing down my neck to try to try to let everybody in the world know what was going on," Gobie said. "I felt as though I couldn't go through legitimate avenues for work anymore, and the logical thing for me to do was to establish my own escort service.

"I knew that there was a ton of money to be made," he said. "And I knew that I could get away with it if I could provide myself with some sort of official cover to deceive and mislead the probation department, which I did."
That "official cover" was employment by Mr. Frank, who allowed the prostitute to use his house and wrote to the Virginia probation department saying he had hired Gobie as a personal employee, Gobie claimed.
Mr. Frank acknowledged writing the letters but denied they were intended to mislead or deceive probation officials.

IN DEATH, SPENCE STAYED TRUE TO FORM
Michael Hedges, and Jerry Seper The Washington Times; Final Section: A, Page: A1 Monday, November 13, 1989
BOSTON -

Craig J. Spence, the once-powerful lobbyist who entertained and influenced Washington's elite, died Friday much as he had lived: dressed in a tuxedo in Boston's most expensive hotel, listening to Mozart with three dollars in his pocket.
--------------------------------------------------------------------------------
Mr. Spence told several friends that the call-boy operation was being investigated by the U.S. Attorney's Office and other federal authorities as a possible CIA front. He told the friends that the CIA used the service to compromise other federal intelligence officials and foreign diplomats.
--------------------------------------------------------------------------------
Now, many questions may never be answered about the man who was a focus of a federal grand jury investigation for spending $20,000 a month on male prostitutes, orchestrating unauthorized late-night tours of the White House and possibly bribing a Secret Service officer and a member of the Army's Delta Force.
On a mirror in Room 429 of the Ritz Carlton Hotel, Mr. Spence on Friday left his final enigma in the form of a suicide note.
With a black felt-tip marker he had written, "Chief, consider this my resignation, effective immediately. As you always said, you can't ask others to make a sacrifice if you are not ready to do the same. Life is duty. God bless America."
As a postscript, he wrote, "To the Ritz, please forgive this inconvenience."
Mr. Spence was found by hotel employees Friday afternoon lying on his bed, fully clothed, with a telephone cradled in his ear and a Walkman headset containing a cassette tape of Mozart's "A Little Night Music" around his neck, police detectives and other sources said.

Boston's medical examiner had made no official finding on the cause of death yesterday. "That may take as long a couple weeks," said a spokesman for the office. Mr. Spence's body was being held by the medical examiner, who had performed an autopsy, while police tried to contact his survivors.
Found hidden in a false ceiling in the bathroom were seven small packets of Xanex, a prescription anti-depressant, with one pill removed, Detective Sgt. James McDonald said. Also found were Mr. Spence's will and birth certificate.

Mr. Spence was attired in the style he affected at his lavish dinner parties, according to the police report: "black Tux with white shirt, bow tie, white suspenders, black socks and shoes."
"There was no sign of foul play whatsoever, no marks on the body," said Boston Police Detective Robert Harrington. "It was as if he had fallen asleep talking on the telephone."
The door of the hotel had been barricaded with the room's other double bed and a chair, according to a police report. Hotel maintenance workers had to saw through the door to enter the room. The only other way into the room was through a fourth-floor window facing a busy street.

Mr. Spence may have attempted to save himself after taking an intentional overdose, according to police investigators.
"Someone from Washington called the hotel that day and said a Craig Spence had called the caller and may be sick," said a police detective. "But the hotel couldn't find a Mr. Spence registered. It turned out he had checked in under an alias, C.S. Kane." Friends theorized the alias was an ironic takeoff on Orson Welles' fictional hero Citizen Kane, whom Mr. Spence often said he admired.

In an interview with The Washington Times in August, Mr. Spence made frequent allusions to his work with the Central Intelligence Agency, a connection CIA sources deny.
But on the bed near him when he died, according to two Boston detectives who handled the investigation, was a newspaper clipping detailing efforts by CIA Director William Webster to initiate legislation giving protection to CIA agents called upon to testify before government bodies.
Mr. Spence had been subpoenaed to appear before a federal grand jury in Washington probing his connections to a call-boy network suspected of committing credit-card violations, to late-night White House tours he arranged and the gift of a Rolex watch to a Secret Service officer who allegedly gave Mr. Spence pieces of the Truman china collection in return.
--------------------------------------------------------------------------------
"All this stuff you've uncovered (involving call boys, bribery and the White House tours), to be honest with you, is insignificant compared to other things I've done. But I'm not going to tell you those things, and somehow the world will carry on."
--------------------------------------------------------------------------------
He had boasted to reporters for The Times that - if he testified - he would provide a wealth of damaging information into the workings of the call-boy ring, bribery of Japanese and U.S. officials and other sordid matters.
But, despite the subpoena, Mr. Spence apparently never appeared before a grand jury.
During the past few weeks, Mr. Spence told several friends that the call-boy operation was being investigated by the U.S. Attorney's Office and other federal authorities as a possible CIA front. He told the friends that the CIA used the service to compromise other federal intelligence officials and foreign diplomats.
One friend quoted him as saying, "Casey's boys are out to get me," an apparent reference to former CIA Director William Casey, now deceased. Mr. Casey and Mr. Spence were friends, and the former CIA director attended parties hosted by the former lobbyist.
Mr. Spence had come to Boston several days before his death with frequent companion former Air Force Sgt. Ron Paganelli and his dog, Winston, according to police investigators.
During his stay at the elegant Ritz Carlton, just off the Boston Common, he entertained as many as six or seven guests in his $285-a-night room, according to hotel employees.
He had arrived at the hotel Nov. 4. Mr. Spence told a hotel worker with whom he had become friendly that he was in town to meet with a former boss, one-time Massachusetts Speaker of the House John Davoren, police said. But that meeting never occurred, they said.
Hotel employees said he was an eccentric guest, making frequent demands of the staff for chocolate truffles, fresh flowers and other appointments but then somewhat arbitrarily tipping $200 or $300 at a time. He spent much of his stay traveling in limousines to meet friends, police said.

During a lengthy interview at a Manhattan apartment in August, Mr. Spence frequently alluded to deep mysteries. "All this stuff you've uncovered (involving call boys, bribery and the White House tours), to be honest with you, is insignificant compared to other things I've done. But I'm not going to tell you those things, and somehow the world will carry on."

He also talked frequently of suicide, saying repeatedly, "My life is over." He reserved deep bitterness for high-powered friends he said had forsaken him. "I've had the world at my house, and now they don't know who I am," he said. "But they did come, didn't they?"

SPENCE AS MUCH AN ENIGMA IN DEATH AS HE WAS IN LIFE
Jerry Seper, and Michael Hedges The Washington Times; Final Section: WORLD Page: A11 Monday, November 13, 1989
"The rumors of my death are greatly exaggerated."
- Craig J. Spence, two weeks ago at a Washington dinner party
--------------------------------------------------------------------------------
The room where Craig J. Spence died was awash in the small mysteries and ironies that had followed him - and that he had perpetuated - since he came to Washington in the late 1970s, already an enigmatic figure with strange Asian connections and friends in high places.
--------------------------------------------------------------------------------
The sergeant, who also participated in the July 3 White House tour, allegedly was asked by Mr. Spence for information on Delta Force, a special forces counterterrorism unit based in Fort Bragg, N.C.
--------------------------------------------------------------------------------
On the bed was a newspaper clipping referring to CIA undercover agents. Scrawled on the mirror was a note written to some unnamed "chief," which also contained an obscure phrase in Japanese, "Nisei Bei," which means second-generation American.
But hidden from view, in the room's false ceiling, were personal papers, including a birth certificate describing his arrival as a small-town, middle-class boy - a heritage he spent his life trying to restyle.
"Death, you know, is only painful to the ones you leave behind," Mr. Spence told The Washington Times during an interview in August. "As a matter of fact, I'm looking forward to it. At 48, I'll still look good in hell."
The focus of a summer sex scandal, Mr. Spence was found dead Friday in his room at the Ritz Carlton Hotel in Boston. He had celebrated his 49th birthday just three weeks ago at a lavish Washington party.

The Ritz was among Mr. Spence's favorite hostelries, one of several posh accommodations he demanded in his frequent travels throughout the United States, Europe, South and Central America and the Orient.
"I've always been a first-class person in a second-class world, but I've learned to adjust," he said in the interview. "But there are places I've found where a civilized man can exist with some style and dignity."
Mr. Spence's name surfaced this summer after The Times identified the former lobbyist and prominent social host - who could arrange unauthorized late-night tours of the White House for his friends with a single telephone call - as a major client of a homosexual prostitution service being investigated by the Secret Service, Metropolitan Police, the U.S. Attorney's Office and a federal grand jury.

That investigation centered on a homosexual call-boy service that operated out of a house on 34th Place NW. The ring's clients, according to hundreds of credit-card vouchers obtained by The Times, included government officials, military officers, foreign and U.S. businessmen, lawyers, bankers, congressional aides, media representatives and other professionals.
The vouchers showed that Mr. Spence spent as much as $20,000 a month for call boys from various escort services run by the ring, including Man-to-Man, Dream Boys, Ultimate First Class and Jovan. He admitted in the interview with The Times that he had used credit cards to purchase sexual services, but strongly hinted of having "firsthand information" about people "high in government" who also were involved.
During the past few weeks, Mr. Spence told several friends that he knew "for a fact" that the call-boy operation was being investigated by the U.S. Attorney's Office and other federal authorities as a CIA front. He told the friends the CIA used the service to compromise other federal intelligence officials and foreign diplomats.

Mr. Spence claimed in the interview that he had worked for the CIA on numerous occasions and had been instrumental in a number of covert actions in Vietnam, Japan, Central America and the Middle East - a claim denied by the agency.
"How do you think a little faggot like me moved in the circles I did?" he said. "It's because I had contacts at the highest levels of this government.
"They'll deny it. But how do they make me go away, when so many of them have been at my house, at my parties and at my side?"

The grand jury investigation begun in June by U.S. Attorney Jay Stephens was described as a "credit card" probe. It is not clear, however, how vigorous federal prosecutors have been nor where the case may be headed.
The Times, in contacting a number of principal witnesses and active participants in the case, discovered that few of them had been interviewed and only a handful asked to testify before the grand jury. Several key figures had not been contacted at all. Those who were questioned were being asked mainly about national security concerns and possible security breaches at the White House.
Among those not contacted by law enforcement officials or the grand jury were:

* Officials of the Reagan and Bush administrations who were identified in The Times as having used the call-boy service and paid with credit cards.
* Those running the prostitution ring raided in February, and persons who kept the credit-card records of visits with prostitutes by people who worked in the Reagan and Bush White Houses.
* Any of several high-profile friends of Mr. Spence's who attended parties at his Kalorama home or spoke for pay at numerous seminars he sponsored as a registered foreign agent.
* Prostitutes who said they serviced Mr. Spence and military personnel whom the former lobbyist hired as bodyguards.
"I haven't heard one word from the U.S. attorney, the FBI or anyone else," said one of the men whom Mr. Spence got into the White House for a 1 a.m. visit on July 3, 1988. "The Secret Service talked to me back in the summer, after the stories were out, but nothing since then."

Mr. Spence was one key figure who was handed a subpoena more than two months ago but had yet to testify. What arrangements had been made with the former lobbyist are not known. Mr. Spence vowed during the August interview, however, that he would "never be brought back alive before any damned hearing."
Mr. Stephens has declined to comment on the case. Assistant U.S. Attorney Alan Strasser, who is handling the matter before the grand jury, also has refused comment. A spokeswoman, Judy Smith, said yesterday that the U.S. Attorney's Office would have no comment on Mr. Spence'sdeath or its potential impact on the investigation.

A participant in one of the late-night White House tours testified before the grand jury two weeks ago and was asked about the tours, missing china out of the presidential mansion and Mr. Spence's interest in the U.S. military's top-secret Delta Force. The witness, a longtime acquaintance of Mr. Spence's who had spent considerable time as a guest in his home, was not asked any questions about credit cards, Mr. Spence's alleged involvement with the homosexual call-boy ring or about the ring itself.
The witness - who was among those taking the July 3 White House tour - also described a lengthy interview with Mr. Strasser, Secret Service agents and then a brief questioning period before the federal panel.

"They pulled out a picture book containing the White House china collection and asked me about the Truman china," said the witness, who asked not to be identified. "They wanted to know if I had seen anything like that. They strongly intimated that more things were missing."
Mr. Strasser, according to the witness, also asked during the private discussion and before the grand jury about the gift by Mr. Spence of an expensive Rolex watch to a U.S. Army sergeant. The sergeant, who also participated in the July 3 White House tour, allegedly was asked by Mr. Spence for information on Delta Force, a special forces counterterrorism unit based in Fort Bragg, N.C.
"They asked me what I thought Spence wanted to know about the Delta project," the witness said. "I said it could mean he was just interested in the young guys there or something else."

The questioning by federal authorities became most detailed when it turned to the subject of the late-night tours. "They asked if we went in any offices, if I had seen any documents or if any documents had left the White House," the witness said.

Secret Service officials have publicly stated there was no breach of security during the tours and that they had no concern that entry was made by the late-night visitors into unauthorized areas of the White House.

Mr. Spence also gave an $8,000 Rolex watch to Secret Service uniformed officer Reginald A. deGueldre, who was assigned to the White House security detail. Mr. deGueldre has admitted in an affidavit that he gave Mr. Spence a piece of Truman china from the White House collection.
In August, Mr. deGueldre and another Secret Service officer, who has not been identified, were suspended indefinitely without pay and a third was placed on administrative leave with pay. Secret Service officials said at the time that the suspensions were the first step to possible criminal prosecution of the two men, although none has yet taken place.

Mr. deGueldre said recently he had not been approached by any federal authorities for an interview or asked to testify before the grand jury. "I have no idea what is going on," he said. "I have not heard from anyone at all."
The grand jury witness said federal authorities also inquired about Mr. Spence's alleged drug use. In his interview with The Times, Mr. Spence admitted to being a heavy cocaine user. He was arrested for possession of cocaine in New York last summer.
The witness also was shown a collection of photographs of male youths between "14 and 17 or 18 years old" and asked if any were a youth Mr. Spence lived with and introduced as his son. "They were a rough bunch of customers," the witness said. "The photographs looked like things that might have been found in the house they raided. I was asked if Craig had a son, and I said I didn't believe he did."

In the August interview, Mr. Spence admitted to using the 34th Place call-boy service, but said the amounts of the charges had been inflated by someone connected with the operation. As a result, he said, he fired his accountant over charges he said he had not authorized.

The accountant, Peter Chase, denied he had been fired and said all the credit-card charges had been verified and each contained Mr. Spence's signature. He steadfastly has declined to comment specifically about his former client, but did confirm that records involving Mr. Spence had been subpoenaed by the Secret Service, that no one from the U.S. Attorney's Office had talked with him and that he was not scheduled to appear before the grand jury.

Mr. Spence, who said in August that he had AIDS and who threatened to commit suicide rather than die of the disease, was scheduled for a hearing Feb. 2 in New York City on weapons and drug charges. He was arrested July 31 at the Barbizon Hotel on East 63rd Street with a 22-year-old Brooklyn man identified by police as Casey Regan, an alleged male prostitute. Two other hearings, one in September and the other last week, had been postponed.

Police seized a loaded .32-caliber pistol and confiscated a small quantity of a white powder believed to be cocaine after a report of a disturbance at the hotel.
During his days as one of Washington's premier hosts, Mr. Spence dressed in finery and lived extravagantly, affecting touches like scarlet-lined capes and stretch limousines.

Among those who attended his parties and were featured at seminars he sponsored were journalists Eric Sevareid, Ted Koppel, William Safire and Liz Trotta; former Ambassadors Robert Neumann, Elliott Richardson and James Lilly; the late John Mitchell, attorney general in the Nixon administration; Mr. Casey and other CIA officials, including Ray Cline, former deputy director of intelligence for the agency; former Lt. Gen. Daniel O. Graham, an expert on the Strategic Defense Initiative who now heads High Frontier Inc.; Sen. John Glenn, Ohio Democrat, and Sen. Frank Murkowski, Alaska Republican; and Joseph diGenova, former U.S. attorney in Washington, and his wife, Victoria Toensing, a former deputy assistant attorney general.
Arnaud de Borchgrave, editor-in-chief of The Times, attended a party for Mr. Lilly hosted by Mr. Spence at the former lobbyist's Kalorama home.

Following the August interview in New York, Mr. Spence returned to Washington and reportedly stayed with friends. He maintained a high profile on the bar and restaurant circuit, and was spotted at several places during the past two months.
Meanwhile, several members of Congress, federal officials, military officers and others have told The Times that they are concerned that the lavish parties and Japanese-sponsored seminars thrown by Mr. Spence, at which the elite of Washington and officials from Japan, China and elsewhere mingled, might have compromised U.S. security.

Rep. Helen Delich Bentley, Maryland Republican, for one, recently questioned the former lobbyist's ties to the Japanese government in a speech on the floor of the House. Citing news articles in the United States and Japan, Mrs. Bentley asked whether plans for the F-16 jet had been transferred by Mr. Spence to a Japanese government official, Motoo Shiina, and later turned over to the Soviet Union.
"I bring this to the floor today, Mr. Speaker, because I am frankly puzzled that these stories are out - in print both in Japan and in America -and there seems to be no official investigation into what to me are very grave charges," she said.

Prostitutes corroborate Frank stories
Paul M. Rodriguez The Washington Times; Part A; Pg. A1 February 2, 1990, Friday, Final Edition
Penthouse magazine's anxiously awaited account of sexual adventuring by congressmen quotes a female prostitute as corroborating Steven L. Gobie's earlier story that Rep. Barney Frank knew Gobie was operating a bordello in the congressman's Capitol Hill apartment.
--------------------------------------------------------------------------------
According to Gobie, Mr. Spence told him, "Do you know what kind of power you can have over people if you've got something on them? . . . I need boys and girls for people in government and high-level businessmen for my parties, for individuals, for whatever comes up."
--------------------------------------------------------------------------------
The woman, identified only as Lyn, said Mr. Frank called the apartment from his office before coming home to see whether she had finished with her "trick."
She called Mr. Frank's claim that he didn't know what was going on in his Eighth Street SE apartment in his absence "baloney."
The explicit magazine article about Gobie and the sex-for-hire world in which he said he procured prostitutes for famous clients - "Washington's Mayflower Madam" - was written by Art Harris of The Washington Post and Rudy Maxa of Washingtonian magazine.
"Barney would call and ask, 'Are you entertaining company?' " the female prostitute told the authors. "And I'd say, 'Yeah, but they're about to leave.' And he'd say, 'I'll give you 20 or 25 minutes.' "

Many of the details of Gobie's Penthouse story had been reported earlier by The Washington Times, but the article nevertheless cast new light on the underground world to which Gobie says he introduced Mr. Frank.

Mr. Frank's office did not return telephone calls from The Times seeking comment on the Penthouse article. The congressman also would not be interviewed by the authors of the magazine piece.

Mr. Frank, 49, whose actions are under investigation by the House ethics committee, has acknowledged purchasing sexual services from Gobie, 33, and other male prostitutes. He also has admitted employing Gobie as a personal assistant while knowing that Gobie continued to work as a call boy, but has insisted that he did not know that the services of prostitutes were being sold from his apartment.

The congressman has said he threw Gobie out in the summer of 1987, ending their two-year relationship, after he discovered the call boy was running a prostitution business from the apartment.
"Barney was hot," Gobie told the magazine. "He said, 'The landlord found out what's going on. One of your girls asked if this was the place to come for escort interviews. . . . Do you realize what could happen if The Washington Post got a hold of this?' "

But Mr. Frank has conceded that he remained in touch with Gobie through New Year's Day 1988, even allowing the prostitute continued use of his car with its congressional license plate.
In the Penthouse article, Gobie said Mr. Frank even offered him $10,000 to $12,000 to help him relocate to Florida. Gobie, who once said he thought about opening up an escort business along Florida's "gold coast," said he rejected the offer.
Gobie has said Mr. Frank, whom he dubbed Sweet 'n' Low for "sweet guy, low on cash," was aware of the larger prostitution operation and delighted in being told about the call boy's sexual encounters.
Mr. Frank also has admitted to using congressional stationery to write several letters to Virginia probation officials to persuade them to shorten Gobie's probation stemming from felony convictions for drug offenses and for sex offenses involving a minor girl.

Moreover, Mr. Frank has admitted fixing parking tickets that Gobie had obtained while servicing clients using the congressman's Chevrolet Chevette. Although Mr. Frank told The Times he could not remember how many tickets he fixed using his congressional immunity, Gobie estimated the number at between 50 and 60.
Gobie told Penthouse that "those letters kept me in operation. . . . The letters and Barney's [congressional] perks were worth far more to me than any fees I could have charged him. I wasn't a gold digger, but I'm not a dumb escort, either."
In fact, Gobie told the magazine that it was Mr. Frank who came up with the idea of hiring the call boy as a driver and providing a cover for the prostitution business, which catered to men as well as women.
"He said, 'You can use me as a reference to the probation people,' " according to Gobie, who said he listed Mr. Frank's house with Virginia law enforcement authorities as his address.
Mr. Frank said in an Aug. 23 interview with The Times that he allowed Gobie to use the apartment as "his house," but admitted that the call boy never lived there - even though the congressman told probation officials and at least one court-appointed social worker that the apartment was Gobie's home address.

Another prostitute, whom Penthouse identified as Ricky, also backed Gobie's claims that Mr. Frank benefited from the prostitution operation with reduced rates for sexual acts.
Ricky, described as an "especially . . . trim, six-foot blond," told the magazine that Mr. Frank paid him a discounted $100 fee on one occasion for a sexual tryst arranged by Gobie and that he agreed to waive his usual referral fee as a favor to the congressman.
Gobie said he made about six prostitutes in all available to Mr. Frank at reduced rates.

Mr. Frank acknowledged in a Sept. 25 Newsweek magazine interview that he purchased sexual services from several male prostitutes but did not elaborate other than to say: "I knew it was wrong, but I just couldn't sit home."

Gobie, according to Penthouse, said Mr. Frank also daydreamed about living a secret life as a paid escort. "He said, 'If I'd been 20 years younger, I would have liked to have tried hustling. . . . I think it would be a thrill to get paid for sex," Gobie quoted the congressman as saying.

The Penthouse article also expanded on the relationship between Gobie and Craig J. Spence, the former lobbyist who was under investigation by the U.S. Attorney's Office in connection with alleged bribery of Secret Service officers, unauthorized White House tours and credit card abuse connected to a male prostitution ring he frequented.

The magazine said Mr. Spence had agreed to "provide lurid details of Washington's bisexual wonderland." But before the interview could occur, Mr. Spence committed suicide in Boston on Nov. 10.

In the magazine, Gobie - who was not a source of The Times on the Spence story - also confirmed many of the things others had said about the lobbyist with ties to the upper echelons of the Reagan administration.
He said Mr. Spence tried to recruit him to help "in a sordid scheme to blackmail the powerful politicians invited to his lavish parties."
Gobie also said he "sexually serviced" Mr. Spence for money three times and, according to the magazine, "watched [the lobbyist] snort cocaine and then do sit-ups as he hung upside down, half-naked, in gravity boots."
According to Gobie, Mr. Spence told him, "Do you know what kind of power you can have over people if you've got something on them? . . . I need boys and girls for people in government and high-level businessmen for my parties, for individuals, for whatever comes up."
The magazine quoted Gobie as saying Mr. Spence was "the most dangerous man I'd ever met. If he hadn't turned into such a crackhead, he could have blackmailed half this town. He used to say, 'Hey, foreign intelligence agencies are doing it.' "

MINGO HIRES CONTROVERSIAL DOCTOR

Maryclaire Dale The Charleston Gazette; News; Pg. P1A July 01, 1997, Tuesday
A Williamson doctor facing an August medical licensure hearing and a possible criminal retrial in Kentucky was recently named Mingo County's medical examiner.
--------------------------------------------------------------------------------
"A physician has nothing to gain from a suicide. A mortician does."
-------------------------------------------------------------------------------
Diane Shafer, who was charged with bribing a Kentucky hearing examiner she later married, will replace former sheriff and funeral home owner Gerald Chafin, who had been named county coroner earlier in the month. Shafer is apparently now married to or involved with Henry Vinson, the former Mingo County coroner who served time in prison for running a Washington, D.C., male prostitution ring which reached the White House.
Since 1975, all West Virginia counties have been required to have a physician serve as a county medical examiner, responding to homicides, suicides, accidents and questionable deaths. The examiner's role is to survey the body, talk to police on the scene, and gather information for the state medical examiner offices in Charleston, Morgantown and Wheeling.

The Mingo County post had been vacant for about a year, forcing police to wait up to two or three hours for a medical examiner to come from Charleston.
In early June, Mingo County commissioners appointed Chafin county coroner. He has had his own legal troubles in recent years, having been twice indicted on federal wiretap charges that were later dismissed.
"I told them he really doesn't fit the guidelines. Do you have a physician down there? Then she [Shafer] called," State Medical Examiner Irwin Sopher said.

Sopher knew of Shafer's controversial history, which included a bribery conviction in Kentucky that was later overturned, the current loss of her Kentucky medical license and a prior suspension of her West Virginia medical license.
"Well, she has a license to practice medicine, and I discussed some of these things with her, and I think she'll be able to handle some of this," Sopher said. "The job is mainly a reporting position.
"They don't do examinations, or actual autopsies."

He said the job pays $50 per case, making it difficult sometimes to attract physicians. At times, nurses, dentists, funeral directors or other people have served as interim coroners, as is currently the case in about six counties, Sopher said.
Sopher said the Mingo County medical examiner would typically handle about 60 cases a year.
Shafer's criminal conviction on bribery charges in Kentucky was overturned in 1995 by the state's Supreme Court.

The retrial had been set for earlier this year but was apparently postponed. Shafer said she thinks the charges will be dropped. She was convicted in Kentucky state court of bribing Gregory Holmes, a Kentucky hearing examiner who was reviewing charges she overbilled insurers for her work. Holmes, a blind and already married 39-year-old lawyer, cleared her of wrongdoing 10 days after they were allegedly married and after Shafer allegedly gave him $ 42,500. Holmes, who denied marrying Shafer, was convicted of bigamy and bribery. A medical board panel in West Virginia found probable cause to take

Shafer to a hearing, now set for Aug. 20, 21 and 22, on charges she fraudulently signed four disability papers during a period when her West Virginia license was suspended.
Shafer said Monday someone approached her to apply. "Well, people ask me to do house calls. This is certainly less work than that," she joked, when asked why she wanted the post.
She said the job should be held by physicians as opposed to funeral directors. "A physician has nothing to gain from a suicide. A mortician does. He would probably process the body for burial," she said. "I don't think it's [the funeral industry] a charity business."

She could not be reached for comment later in the evening about her relationship with Vinson.
Shafer, who ran unsuccessfully for the House of Delegates in 1996, gave her age Monday as 42.

According to a story published under her byline in a Temple University alumnae magazine, she graduated from Temple's medical school in 1976.
The story described her long days working in an impoverished Appalachian community.
Shafer collected more than $ 500,000 in a six-year period from the West Virginia Workers' Compensation Fund alone.

During the time of her licensure troubles, when she had an office in Kentucky but no license and a license in West Virginia but no office, she was photographed handing pieces of paper presumed to be prescriptions to patients out of her car at a small airfield in Mingo County.
Chafin said Monday he was not upset Shafer replaced him. "If we have an M.D. that is agreeable, then it is to be an M.D.," he said. Sopher, told later that Shafer appears to be involved with Vinson, said he wanted time to think about the situation before commenting on her fitness for the job.

Vinson's sister, Brenda Copley of Fort Gay, said Monday that as far as she knew, Vinson married Shafer after his late 1995 release from federal prison.
A man who answered the phone at Shafer's medical office Monday initially identified himself as Shafer's husband, Henry Shafer, and said he could answer questions about her medical examiner appointment.

"We were married years ago, and then we tried it again recently," he said.

Later in the day, the same man denied saying he was her husband and made a series of sexually explicit and racist remarks when asked if his name was actually Henry Vinson.
"Would you like to come and have sex with me, you f-- n--- b--. What the hell is your problem?" he shouted loudly into the office telephone line.

Several longtime Williamson residents said Monday Shafer has been seen around town with Vinson.
Vinson served as Mingo County coroner from 1985 to 1986 before resigning after a widow complained he left her husband's body in a funeral home for 42 days because of her inability to pay him. In 1990, he was charged with running prostitution rings which advertised in Washington newspapers under the names "Man to Man" and "Dream Boys."

Prosecutors said the business made $ 500,000 to $ 1 million between 1987 and 1989, and clients included low-level staffers in the Reagan and Bush White House.
Vinson, who was represented by lawyer-turned-legal commentator Greta Van Susteren, eventually pleaded guilty to racketeering and credit card fraud charges in the 43-count indictment.

[From 'Connecting the Dots: Nathan Landow']:
Then, there is this AP credited bookreview and summation:
During a 1982 investigation into the use of "drugs and sexual activity to lobby congressmen," Shoffler did indeed advise congressional investigators to look into a male prostitution ring that serviced Capitol Hill. The veteran police detective believed that the sex ring might be linked to high-flying Washington lobbyist, Robert Keith Gray, who had more than a few connections to CIA folk. According to Peter Dale Scott, some Washington investigators also suspected that the gay sex ring was connected to DC crime boss Joe "the Possum" Nesline.
Most interestingly, the Watergate madam, Heidi Rikan, was a girlfriend of mobster Joe "the Possum" Nesline, whose alleged connection to the Capitol Hill gay sex scandal a decade later aroused the suspicion of Washington detectives.

Assorted boyfriends and former husbands of both Rikan and her sometimes roommate, Maurine "Mo" Biner (who married key Watergate figure John Dean, which makes Mo a pivotal character, according to scandal revisionists) were associated with the Quorum, an early 1960s "swingles' club run by Bobby Baker, a former aide to Lyndon Johnson. Scott surmises that all roads led to Baker's club for a reason: the Quorum functioned a lot like the mob-and-intelligence-infested sex traps of the 1970s.

It was Bobby Baker who introduced President Kennedy to an East German bombshell named Ellen Rometsch, whom JFK, true to form, promptly bedded. Scott speculates that J. Edgar Hoover leaked word of this international indiscretion to the press. Whether or not Hoover was behind the leaks, they nearly ignited a global scandal.

'Call boy' leader gets 5 years
Paul M. Rodriguez The Washington Times, Part A; NATION; Pg. A3 June 13, 1991, Thursday, Final Edition
The head of the District's largest male prostitution ring was sentenced to 63 months in jail yesterday after an unusual tirade by U.S. District Court Judge Harold Greene directed at the U.S. Attorney's Office.
--------------------------------------------------------------------------------
"I can't recall a single case in which the government has asked for departure before just because somebody pleaded guilty and got others to plead. . . . I don't think it's warranted . . . because there are sentences being handed out [more severe] for crimes below this."
--------------------------------------------------------------------------------
The judge specifically criticized U.S. Attorney Jay Stephens' office for seeking a departure from mandatory sentencing guidelines for Henry W. Vinson, operator of the callboy ring.
"Why propose this departure?" Judge Greene asked. "I can't recall a single case in which the government has asked for departure before just because somebody pleaded guilty and got others to plead. . . . I don't think it's warranted . . . because there are sentences being handed out [more severe] for crimes below this."
Judge Greene's rebuke followed a panel discussion Friday in which Mr. Stephens suggested that federal judges in Washington stop complaining about being overworked and having no room to tailor sentences to specific crimes.
Mr. Stephens, in an eight-page statement, said that federal judges in the District spend an average of only 13 hours a week in the courtroom and only five or six hours of them on criminal cases.
Federal judges, including Judge Greene, bristled at Mr. Stephens' comments and said they have been swamped with an influx of small-time criminal drug cases.
Yesterday's sentencing of Vinson, 29, of Williamson, W.Va., culminated a two-year investigation of the prostitution ring by the U.S. Secret Service, the Internal Revenue Service and District police.

The ring included a small number of female prostitutes. Over a two-year period, according to the U.S. Attorney's Office, the ring generated between $500,000 and $1 million in revenues.
At his sentencing, Vinson told the judge that "my behavior has certainly not been very complimentary. I'm sorry if I did hurt society."
He had pleaded guilty to one count each of credit card fraud and conspiracy to violate the Racketeering, Influence and Corrupt Organizations Act.
Ten days ago, Robert Chambers, 39, of Upper Marlboro, son of the owner of The Chambers Funeral Home, was sentenced to 41 months for helping to operate the prostitution ring, which went under various names in the District area, such as "Man-to-Man," "Jovan" and "Dreamboys."

Two other manager-prostitutes of the ring - James A. Macko, 29, of Michigan, and James T. Smith, 23, of Florida - were sentenced to federal prison earlier this year.

The investigation of the ring was triggered when police raided a house in the 6000 block of 34th Place in Upper Northwest in February 1989.
In his remarks yesterday, Judge Greene excoriated Assistant U.S. Attorney Alan Strasser for seeking a waiver from the mandatory sentencing guidelines that became effective in November 1987. Judge Greene said Mr. Strasser's request was "one of the worst" made "by the faceless departure committee."

The committee is an internal group in the U.S. Attorney's Office that determines whether a defendant's cooperation merits a sentencing waiver.
"I don't think that's warranted" because Vinson was the leader of a "sophisticated scheme," Judge Greene said, noting that others in the case had received stiff sentences.

Vinson's lawyer, Greta Van Susterne, said the judge's decision would dampen efforts by prosecutors to gain cooperation from defendants. "You'd have to be crazy to cooperate when the whole point of such cooperation is to get something in return."

In an apparent contradiction, Mr. Strasser sought a waiver from federal guidelines but in a separate sentencing memorandum called for a harsh sentence because the prostitution ring was cavalier about the spread of the AIDS virus.

U.S. EXPANDS PROBE OF 'CALL BOY' RING
Paul M. Rodriguez and George Archibald The Washington Times; Final Section: A Page: A1 Thursday, July 6, 1989
A Secret Service officer assigned to the midnight shift at the White House was interrogated for more than 10 hours Monday about his association with Craig J. Spence - Washington lobbyist; host to the capital's political, business and media elite; and patron of homosexual call-boy services - and the officer was said to have failed a lie-detector test.
The officer, Reginald A. deGueldre, accepted a gold Rolex wristwatch valued at $8,000 in return for "unspecified favors" from Mr. Spence, for whom he arranged at least four middle-of-the-night private tours of the White House for high-ranking military officers, well-known figures in the news media and male prostitutes.
--------------------------------------------------------------------------------
Mr. Spence, said one law enforcement official close to the case, also asked Officer deGueldre to intervene on his behalf to help clear Secret Service records of a 1987 arrest at a White House gate for disorderly conduct, described by one source as a lewd sex act.
--------------------------------------------------------------------------------
Officer deGueldre has been told he will be called to testify before a federal grand jury.
President Reagan was in the White House residential quarters during one of the Spence visits, which was restricted to the West Wing, site of the Oval Office.
U.S. Attorney Jay Stephens, meanwhile, widened his investigation of the homosexual prostitution ring, which has ensnared Mr. Spence and several key Reagan and Bush administration officials.
Mr. Stephens' office is now looking closely at the White House tours and the activities of Mr. Spence, 48, a consultant to Japanese government officials and others.
John Pyles, the Secret Service special agent assigned to direct the investigation of allegations of breaches of White House security, said only, "We're not in a position to talk about this."

Mr. Pyles and Secret Service spokesman Allan Cramer said they were ordered to refer inquiries about the investigation to Assistant U.S. Attorney Alan Strasser, who is preparing evidence for presentation to the federal grand jury.
"You'd have to ask them why they referred you to me," Mr. Strasser said yesterday. "There is nothing I care to say to you about this at this time."

The Secret Service, after accounts were published in The Washington Times, has talked to people who took the July 3, 1988, White House tour set up by Mr. Spence, several of those interviewed say.
The agents are investigating possible security breaches by those who entered the White House compound as well as by Officer deGueldre, The Times was told.
One of those reached yesterday by the Secret Service said questioning focused on Mr. Spence and his associates. Questions were also asked about Mr. Spence and the use of cocaine.

Officer deGueldre failed the portion of a polygraph test involving favors he may have done for Mr. Spence, the law enforcement official said. The Secret Service officer visited on several social occasions with Mr. Spence, who was said to have held out the offer of a high-paying security industry job in Florida to him.

Officer deGueldre, who said he immediately reported himself to his superiors when the story of the late-night Spence visit appeared in the June 29 editions of The Washington Times, said he had done nothing wrong.
"To this day, I still believe that Craig is still an American hero," the Secret Service officer said. "The guy never hit on me. . . . My relationship to him was officer to citizen. . . . That's how I met him - when I was walking the street (as a patrolman in the embassy area of the fashionable Kalorama neighborhood where Mr. Spence lived).
"The first time he called me was maybe five years later," Officer deGueldre said. "He said he wanted to be my friend and invited me to a party. . . . I was shocked.
"I was introduced on a one-to-one basis with some very important people. . . . I met top brass, politicals . . . I was invited to a lot of functions at Craig's house. There was all kinds of heavy types there."
But, the officer added: "I had no idea about sex, drugs, nothing like that. . . . A lot of stuff now makes sense though. . . . I always suspected he worked for the CIA."

Officer deGueldre said he understands, given his free access to the White House and the president's living quarters, why the Secret Service is concerned about the Spence tours.
Mr. Spence, said one law enforcement official close to the case, also asked Officer deGueldre to intervene on his behalf to help clear Secret Service records of a 1987 arrest at a White House gate for disorderly conduct, described by one source as a lewd sex act.

Three persons who went along on the post-midnight tour of the White House arranged by Mr. Spence July 3, 1988, recalled being admitted by a uniformed Secret Service officer named "Reggie."
"Reggie met us at the gate, and he was the one who let us in," one man said in an interview. "There was another guard who was obviously upset by this."

The three persons also remembered seeing "Reggie" at various parties given by Mr. Spence at which "Reggie" appeared to be serving as a bodyguard or security man for the host.
Others said Mr. Spence used "Reggie" to arrange other White House tours, including one that Mr. Spence took with a 15-year-old boy, whom he identified as his son Will.

That tour, according to former friends and associates of Mr. Spence, occurred June 29, 1988. The "son" had a Southern accent and was actually a male prostitute who provided sexual services for Mr. Spence and several male friends.
Mr. Cramer, the Secret Service spokesman, declined to answer questions about these tours, too. All inquiries about Mr. Spence's past White House dealings and visits were covered by the gag order imposed by the U.S. Attorney's Office, he said.
Evidence concerning Mr. Spence - even information about his past White House connections - is being tightly held by the Secret Service "because it's tied into a criminal fraud case we are investigating."

"We're under orders from the U.S. attorney. . . . The U.S. attorney has restricted us from commenting on that case at all, or anything peripheral to it, because of the judicial tie-in," Mr. Cramer said.
Mr. Stephens' office, which first agreed to discuss the call-boy ring investigation with reporters for The Times last week but later in the day declined to do so, did not respond to inquiries yesterday.
The U.S. Attorney's Office to date has said only that it is investigating "possible credit-card fraud" in connection with arrests made in raids on a house on 34th Place NW, described as the headquarters of a homosexual prostitution ring operating as an escort service.
The Times learned that the FBI is eager to investigate illegal interstate prostitution activities and other possible federal violations incurred by operators of the homosexual prostitution ring, but evidence confiscated by the Secret Service during raids on the house on 34th Place in February and in May is not being shared with the bureau.
This evidence includes information involving high-level government officials and political celebrities who were clients of the ring.

Several law enforcement authorities said relations between local and federal law enforcement agencies have been strained by the Secret Service's behavior in the call-boy case.
The Secret Service - an agency within the Treasury Department whose 1,900 special agents and 960 uniformed personnel are charged with investigating currency counterfeiting and credit-card fraud as well as protecting the president and vice president - is largely dependent on the Metropolitan Police Department, U.S. Capitol Police, National Park Police, the FBI and other law enforcement agencies, Mr. Cramer acknowledged in an interview yesterday.
For example, when the Secret Service arrests anyone on the White House grounds, the person is turned over to D.C. police for "processing, transportation and lock-up," Mr. Cramer said. He declined to discuss allegations that the Secret Service had "frozen out" the FBI in the call-boy investigation.
Craig Spence was linked this week to a Japanese politician, Motoo Shiina, a leading member of the ruling Liberal Democratic Party who is considered an inside favorite to succeed Prime Minister Sousuke Uno.
Federal court records in Washington revealed that Mr. Spence and Mr. Shiina engaged in a bitter lawsuit in 1984 over the ownership of a house on Wyoming Avenue NW, valued last year at $1.15 million. The two-story Victorian house in which Mr. Spence later lived, was planted with electronic bugs and video recording equipment that, according to homosexual call boys and others who routinely visited the house, was used to make incriminating tapes to blackmail guests.

Mr. Spence has told several current and former friends that, after obtaining the money, he blackmailed Mr. Shiina by threatening to reveal that the cash to buy the house had been brought into the country in violation of currency regulations. Mr. Shiina settled the lawsuit out of court after he was ordered to answer questions about the money's origins.

A little outrage for the children?
Wesley Pruden The Washington Times; Part A; NATION; PRUDEN ON POLITICS; Pg. A4 August 25, 1989, Friday, Final Edition

O.K., you guys over there on 15th Street, if you sleep through this one, too, you ought to go back to Dubuque to sell shoes.
---------------------------------------------------------------------------
That's the energy and curiosity level of a lot of Washington reporters. They get a press flack's lie and that satisfies them.
--------------------------------------------------------------------------------
When last we left those wonderful folks at The Post, they were explaining that the way to cover the Great Summer Sex Scandal, starring Craig Spence and a cast of frightened dozens, was to tell their readers that actually there's no story there.
"The Bombshell That Didn't Explode" is the way Eleanor Randolph, the O.P. media critic, described on Aug. 1 the story that everybody in town has been talking about since the story broke here June 29. The Wall Street Journal even did a story about how The Times had got the best of The Post.

"Journalists have been left debating whether The Times published a blockbuster or a 'blockbluster,'" she wrote. The second 'l' in "blockbluster" was supposed to be the equivalent of a nudge and a wink from the classy Miss Randolph.
Leonard Downie Jr., the managing editor at The Post, stroked his chin whiskers, put on his wise-old-owl look, and told her: " . . . we [had] already reported about this raid and we wondered what more there was in this story that we would want to publish." What he didn't say, but what his readers could only conclude, was that he couldn't get anybody to find out. So he just wondered.

The usual suspects were brought in to help. Jack Nelson of the Los Angeles Times conceded that his newspaper defers to The Post and The New York Times to decide what's news in Washington, and said he sent reporters out to see whether there was a story and they couldn't find anything.

Howell Raines of The New York Times seemed, as usual, a bit dazed by it all. He agreed there was "obviously some kind of investigation going on," but danged if he could figure out what it was about. He said
he would wait, as befits a proper New York Timesman, to see whether there was anything in the story about "public policy." (He ought to thinka little faster, since he's keeping Mr. Nelson's California readers waiting.)
"Other reporters around Washington said they were interested in pursuing the story but decided against it when they checked with the Secret Service and other investigative agencies and were told the raid was relatively routine."
Alas, she's probably right. That's the energy and curiosity level of a lot of Washington reporters. They get a press flack's lie and that satisfies them.

Fortunately for the community, that doesn't satisfy The Times, and in particular it doesn't satisfy Paul Rodriguez and George Archibald, the two reporters whose work is arrayed across the top of Page One this morning.
Despite the lady-like grunting and straining by Miss Randolph, seeking to explain why The Post never considered this a story, her editors have in fact tried to keep the story in sight. They ran not once but twice a story on the White House guard's accepting a gold watch from Craig Spence. Despite The Post's disdainful insistence that the story is merely about a commonplace local prostitution ring, its editors devoted 60 inches of newsprint to profile Henry Vinson, the "madame" of the ring. Despite scoffing at the importance of mid-level White House figures, as named in The Times' coverage, they ran a fanciful front-page story, citing unnamed sources (one of whom is said to be John Belushi, interviewed by Bob Woodward at Forest Lawn) about Fawn Hall, a mere secretary at the White House, who was supposed to be snorting coke.

But not to be too hard on Miss Randolph, who was only doing what she was told, and whose heart may not be in the debunking, anyway. Her husband, Peter Pringle, a reporter for the London Independent, has written several stories about the call boy scandal, with none of The Post's pouting skepticism.
Now, with this morning's disclosures, a little domestic harmony can descend on the Pringle/Randolph breakfast table. "The bombshell" has exploded at the seat of Ben Bradlee's pants.
This morning's accounts show the male prostitution ring to have reached into Congress, the White House and a public elementary school. The disclosures about Barney Frank won't surprise many of us. But unless this city, the Congress, the journalists who live here, and the U.S. attorney's office have lost the last vestige of public and private decency, we can expect a little outrage in behalf of our children.

Jesus and Simon Magus
In this extract from my book Barbelo, the Story of Jesus Christ, I discuss the relationship between Jesus Christ (JC) and Simon Magus (SM), the Egyptian magician who parroted Christ in almost every respect. Simon Magus is an enigmatic character who appears mostly in apocryphal works, but is also mentioned in the Acts of the Apostles. In the words of Clement,
And sometimes imitating that he is Christ, he styles himself the Standing One.…Instead of our Christ, he proclaims himself.
By comparing their statements and claims, their deeds and their personalities, my conclusion is that these two individuals must have been one and the same person. In fact, Hippolytus felt obliged to refute direct accusations that Christ and Simon Magus were the same person,
In this way we must think concerning Simon the Magician…let us endeavor to teach anew the parrots of Simon, that Christ, who stood, stands, and will stand, (that is, was, is, and is to come,) was not Simon.
Simon Magus was supposed to have appeared on the scene directly after the crucifixion and ascension of Christ. Curiously, though, the Pistis Sophia relates that Christ continued to teach his disciples for 11 years after his resurrection. This is also the premise of Barbelo, that Christ had survived his crucifixion and continued to instruct his disciples afterwards. Could Christ and Simon Magus have existed in parallel, both conversing with Christ’s disciples? Of course not.
1.      Their sayings …
JC: I am the Alpha and the Omega … who is, and who was, and who is to come
SM: I am the Standing One … who stands, has stood, and will stand


JC: was born of a virgin
SM: ‘for before my mother Rachel and he came together, she, still a virgin, conceived
         me’

SM: the universe had been originated by his angels
JC: instructed his disciples to baptise in his name
SM: ‘none could possibly have salvation without being baptised in his name

   as they please; for men are saved through his grace’
JC: told the parable of the lost sheep

SM: command my head to be smitten off and I shall arise again the third day

2.      The return from Egypt
 According to the Bible, the Holy Family fled to Egypt and returned from there to Israel following the death of Herod. Simon Magus likewise returned from Egypt, where he had learned the practise of magic, to Israel. The Talmud records that Ben Stada (Christ) brought his magic from Egypt, exactly as Simon Magus did.
 3.      The Talmud records the name of Christ’s mother as Stada, most likely derived from the Latin sto stare steti statum, meaning ‘to stand’ or status, meaning ‘a standing’ or ‘standing position’. If true, she would have been known as the mother of the Standing One (Simon Magus).
4.      Statues of Christ and Simon Magus
Both Christ and Simon Magus had the dubious honour of statues of them having been put on display by the authorities.
5.      Confrontation with Simon Peter
In the Clementine texts, Simon Magus is depicted as being involved with Peter in lengthy arguments on a variety of religious topics. From the Gospels it is clear that Christ and Simon Peter often discussed or even argued about religion (Christ even referred to him as ‘Satan’), and Peter objected to Christ about Mary Magdalene’s domination of their discussions.

Bystanders would have remembered these presumably public discussions as having occurred between Simon Magus and Peter, while the disciples recorded them as between Christ and Peter.

6.      Preaching on the slopes of the Mount of Olives
Both Christ and Simon Magus (Josephus’ Egyptian) preached to ‘common people’ on the slopes of the Mount of Olives.

7.      Accused of being magicians
Christ and his followers were often accused of being magicians. Simon Magus’ name means Simon, the Magician. In Barbelo I show that Christ’s so-called miracles were nothing but carefully orchestrated illusions. Peter’s ‘miracle’ of the coin in the fish is the first trick any aspiring illusionist has to master.

8.      Flew into the air
Simon Magus attempted to prove his divinity by flying up above the Forum, but the prayers of Peter and Paul caused him to fall down to the earth. Yeshu (Christ) and Judas Iscariot flew up towards the heavens, but both fell down after Judas had defiled Christ in mid-air.

 9.      Theft of the shem hamphoras
According to the Talmud, Yeshu stole the shem (the letters of God’s Ineffable Name) from the Holy of Holies. Yeshu knew that the barking of the bronze dogs at the entrance would make him forget these letters, so he hid a parchment with the sacred letters written upon it inside a cut he had made into his hip. Once he had passed the dogs and their barking had wiped the letters from his memory, he reopened the cut, retrieved the parchment, and so remembered the letters, which he used to perform miracles. Simon Magus likewise ‘lost the words with which he was deceiving those who stood by’ when a dog with a human voice confronted him. Christ had indeed stormed the Temple with 310 of his men, looted all its holy objects, defiled the Holy of Holies and tore the temple curtain in half.
10.  Rejected Jerusalem
Simon Magus rejected Jerusalem, as did Christ.
11.  Heresies and sexual conduct
Simon Magus and his followers were accused of excessive baseness and lewdness. Various Christian sects were known for their sexual depravity and the Gnostics claimed that Christ himself had revealed those obscenities to them.
12.  Brought magic from Egypt, knowledge of Greek (remote) culture
JC: Accusation brought against Christ: “Jesus was a Magician. He effected all these things by secret arts. From the shrines of the Egyptians He stole the names of the angels of might, and the religious system of a remote country.” Ben Stada (Christ) brought his magic from Egypt.
SM: During a stay in Egypt, he acquired a large measure of Greek culture and attained to an extensive knowledge of magic and ability in it.
13.  Eloquence
Simon Magus was a ‘most vehement orator, trained in the dialectic art,’ matching Christ’s ability to entertain crowds.
14.  A subtle clue in his name
Why was Simon Peter renamed to Cephas? Most likely because Simon Magus had become irritated by the constant confusion as to which one of him or Simon Peter was being addressed.
 15.  Simon Magus, Christ and Paul
In Chapter 7 of Barbelo I discuss the likelihood that Christ had adopted the alias Paul of Tarsus following his staged crucifixion. Some scholars have already identified Simon Magus with Paul, who was, in fact, Jesus Christ. Possibly the most unambiguous proof that these three names belonged to the same person is presented by the accusations brought against the Templar Knights (Chapter 8), that they had worshipped an idol in the form of a severed head with three faces. Christian legend relates that Paul was beheaded, and for what other conceivable reason would anyone have claimed that the head had three faces?
 
To conclude, it is an absurd notion that two different persons could have been present in Judea in the same time frame and physical location, and be involved with the same group of people, one of whom practically repeated word for word what the other was saying or had said earlier, and to top it all, claiming to be the other. How could Simon Magus have possessed such intimate knowledge of what Christ had taught his disciples? The only logical conclusion that can be made is that they had to be one and the same person. Outsiders knew him as Simon Magus, while his followers and inner circle referred to him as Jesus Christ, the anointed one, or the Messiah

The Amazing Story of the Russian Defector Who Changed his Mind
https://www.washingtonian.com/2018/02/18/the-amazing-story-of-the-russian-defector-who-changed-his-mind-vitaly-yurchenko/ 
 The home phone of FBI special agent Michael Rochford rang in the middle of the night on August 2, 1985. He grabbed it and heard the voice of his FBI supervisor. “There’s a plane coming in, a high-level defector.” The day before, a Soviet man had walked into the US consulate in Rome. He had told American officials he was a colonel in the KGB and wanted to defect to the United States. The man promised to reveal Soviet secrets in exchange for a new life in the West. Now his plane was scheduled to land at Andrews Air Force Base. Rochford’s supervisor instructed him to go to the air base, meet a CIA analyst named Aldrich Ames, and find out what this defector knew.
Rochford was a young agent, 30 years old, with a working knowledge of Russian. After arriving at Andrews, he discovered that the defector’s plane had already landed and that Ames had whisked him away to a CIA safe house in Oakton. When Rochford arrived there, he found Ames, a thin man with oversize glasses and a bushy mustache who worked on the CIA’s Soviet desk. Ames was chatting with another man who looked to be in his late forties or early fifties. He had blond hair, a handlebar mustache, and an athletic build, though he wasn’t overly tall. A scar was visible on his right hand.
The man’s name was Colonel Vitaly Yurchenko, of the KGB. American intelligence officers had already started debriefing him using a tape recorder. He didn’t need much prompting. In a gush of Russian-accented English, the KGB colonel began to blurt out a number of astonishing Soviet secrets. The only problem for the Americans was slowing him down. After two or three hours of listening to Yurchenko, they decided to take a break. They went down to the basement and huddled together, heads buzzing.
For months, the Americans had suspected there might be a KGB mole inside one of their intelligence agencies. That would have explained several baffling events, particularly the sudden arrest two months earlier of the CIA’s most valuable spy in the Soviet Union, an aviation specialist named Adolf Tolkachev. In those first two or three hours in the Virginia safe house, Yurchenko revealed the existence of not one but two traitors, American intelligence officers who were stealing US secrets for the KGB. He said he didn’t know their names, but he gave the debriefers enough information to start hunting. One mole, he said, was a CIA analyst—a man the KGB called “Mr. Robert.” The other was an employee with the National Security Agency, the organization that intercepts and reads foreign communications.
With these revelations, Yurchenko sparked a chain of events around the world. Traitors were exposed, propaganda campaigns devised and launched, secrets whispered to the press, careers altered and destroyed. Moles, leaks, dirty tricks, “active measures”—it was a moment that exposed America’s vulnerability to Russian espionage. The year 1985 came to be known as the Year of the Spy. It also taught a painful and timeless set of lessons—ones that transformed the careers of intelligence professionals like Michael Rochford, whose eyes were forever opened to the penetrations of Russia and the KGB.
But as proven by Russia’s brazen and successful attack on our 2016 election, the lessons of the Year of the Spy were ones most Americans forgot.
CIA analyst Colin Thompson arrived at the Oakton safe house on the second day of the Yurchenko debriefing, joining Aldrich Ames and Michael Rochford. When Ames took on a new assignment, Thompson became Yurchenko’s primary CIA handler. Having served in Vietnam for the CIA, Thompson examined the KGB colonel with a practiced eye. “He plans well, he’s careful, he’s clever,” Thompson told me recently. “You see the same sort of things, oddly enough, reflected in Putin these days.”
Unsure at first if Yurchenko was telling the truth or lying, the Americans engaged him in hours of intense conversation, mostly in English, with some swatches in Russian, day after day. At times, the FBI interviewed him alone, without the CIA guys there; at times it was the other way around; and at times they all interviewed him together. The debriefers often asked Yurchenko questions to which they already knew the answers, as a test of his knowledge and accuracy.
They asked him to prove his KGB bona fides, to describe his career path in detail. In his youth, Yurchenko had served in the Soviet navy, where he’d gotten the scar on his right hand, in a winch accident. Then in the mid-1970s, he’d joined the KGB as a security officer at its Washington headquarters, known as the Rezidentura, located on the upper floor of the Soviet Embassy on 16th Street, a building that housed about 100 Soviet officials and staffers, 40 of whom were KGB spies and staffers. He worked there several years until he was transferred home to Moscow in 1983. Though he never reached the KGB’s highest levels, his connections gave him access to cables, gossip, and deep secrets.
The debriefing sessions were audiotaped. Rochford took the tapes home each night, transcribed them, and circulated the transcripts within the FBI, where agents checked Yurchenko’s claims against available information. The defector passed these tests. “Everything that he gave us was verifiable from other sources,” Rochford recalls. “And the new stuff was startling.”
All in all, Yurchenko revealed important details about 55 to 60 KGB assets in America. The FBI knew about some of these assets already—Yurchenko added new information to the case files—and some were completely new. The biggest involved a KGB mole inside the CIA, the man called “Mr. Robert” in KGB cables. Based on Yurchenko’s description of him, Americans suspected that Mr. Robert was Edward Lee Howard, a CIA officer who worked on the Agency’s Soviet desk between 1982 and 1983. A drunk and a gun enthusiast, he had failed four CIA lie-detector tests and was ultimately fired.
Following up on Yurchenko’s tip, the FBI dispatched agents to confront Howard in Texas. He denied he had ever worked for the KGB—then fled. (To the embarrassment of the FBI, Howard managed to slip away from the agents who were monitoring him, made it to an airport, and escaped to Moscow, where he lived under asylum until his death in 2002.)
The second mole identified by Yurchenko was an NSA analyst who had warned the KGB in the past about a US program to intercept Soviet communications, an elaborate and costly effort code-named Ivy Bells. Starting in the early 1970s, US agencies had installed a series of wiretaps on undersea communications cables used by the Soviets, an effort that involved sending US submarines and deep-sea divers into frigid Soviet waters. Around 1980, the Soviets discovered and destroyed the Ivy Bells wiretaps. Now the Americans knew why: An NSA mole had betrayed the program.
Yurchenko’s energy flowed for weeks in the safe-house debriefings. He kept a yellow pad beside his bed and would jump up in the night and write down something he wanted to tell the Americans in the morning. Between debriefing sessions, he dropped hints about why he’d taken the drastic step of defecting. He said the things the Americans expected to hear—he no longer believed in Communism, he thought the KGB was corrupt—but his main motivation seemed more personal.
There was nothing keeping him in the Soviet Union, he said. He had a wife he didn’t love and a troubled 16-year-old son. His mother had recently died of stomach cancer. He had cancer, too, the same kind that had killed his mother, he told them. It was terminal—he didn’t have long to live. One day, chatting with Yurchenko in the kitchen, Rochford noticed he hadn’t brought a change of shoes to America, suggesting that the colonel had left abruptly, without a plan, perhaps on impulse.
In exchange for his cooperation, Yur­chenko made two key demands: money and anonymity. He asked the Americans to keep his defection secret, explaining that as long as the Soviet legal system couldn’t prove he was a traitor, the KGB wouldn’t retaliate against the wife and son he’d left behind. The Americans agreed and also promised him a steady income and free health care for life if he stayed. It seemed like a reasonable deal.
“I really liked Yurchenko,” Rochford says. “My sense is that he was a very open, opinionated, experienced person who really wanted to get the details correct. . . . I didn’t look at his selfish motives or anything else. I didn’t care. I said, this is a source; he was friendly. And in a strange sort of way, he liked to kind of teach. He was trying to teach us about the KGB.”
For instance, Yurchenko explained to the Americans how the KGB engineered campaigns of blackmail and propaganda—“active measures”—to influence elections and public opinion in many countries. It had agents of influence all over, people who could dig up smut on politicians and plant false news stories, always with the goal of weakening the Glaviny Vrag, the Main Enemy, which in the KGB mindset equaled the United States.
“It was an eye-opener for me,” Rochford says. “It was ‘Oh, wow. These guys, they have a big plan. They’re patient.’ ”
Yurchenko even told the Americans how the KGB dealt with defectors to the West. According to Yurchenko, the KGB often tried to get defectors to change their minds—to re-defect. A re-defection was valuable to the KGB because it cast doubt on the integrity of any future defectors: A defector should never be trusted, because he may be a false one.

Defection is one of the hugest gambles a person can make. It’s a blind leap across a border that closes forever behind you. Some defectors never adjust to living in the custody of a foreign government. The stress and loneliness are too much. “A lot of them came expecting something that never happened,” Thompson says. “By defecting, they would solve the problems that they left behind. Well, it doesn’t work that way, either. You don’t leave your problems on the other side of the border. They come with you.”
After a month of divulging secrets to his American handlers, Yurchenko soured. The initial high was gone. He was no longer waking up in the middle of the night eager to jot notes on the yellow pad. He was picky about his food, refusing to eat anything with the slightest bit of spice, on account of his stomach cancer. He boiled plain chicken breasts in a pot in the safe house’s kitchen. At Yurchenko’s request, the FBI sent someone to a Russian pharmacy in Brooklyn to buy a certain kind of herbal stomach remedy—little black seeds that Yurchenko carried around with him in a pouch and ate with his meals. But then he complained he was lonely.
Colin Thompson and Milton Bearden, a 20-year veteran of the CIA’s clandestine services and deputy chief of the Soviet division at the time, reasoned that Yurchenko might be missing female companionship, but Yurchenko wasn’t interested in meeting women. Instead, he seemed hung up on one particular woman, his mistress from the late 1970s, when he was stationed in Washington—a Soviet pediatrician named Valentina Yereskovsky. She was now living in Montreal with her husband, a Soviet diplomat. Yurchenko said he wanted to go to Canada and bring Yereskovsky back to America. His dream was “to live in some relatively remote area of the United States with a Russian-speaking woman who could take care of him,” says Thompson. “Live out his days, not in splendor but in comfortable isolation, as a Russian as opposed to a Soviet.”
The Americans went out of their way to cheer up Yurchenko, an effort that involved two of the more surreal episodes of the Cold War. First, they tried to reunite Yurchenko with his former mistress. In late September, the CIA brought Yurchenko to Montreal and worked with Canadian intelligence to bring Yurchenko to his lover’s front door. The CIA was prepared to offer asylum to Yereskovsky—everything had been arranged to whisk her back to the United States on the spot and process her as a defector. But instead of embracing Yurchenko when he came knocking, she called him a traitor and shut the door in his face.
Rochford recalls: “She looked at him and said, ‘Hey, loser, you’re a defector now. It was fun at the time, but I’m not going to leave my husband and my kids.’ Typical man, right? We’re all f—in’ wrong. It was the saddest part of the debriefing.”
Things got even worse for Yurchenko. One day in Montreal, the KGB colonel picked up a newspaper and noticed a story about how the CIA had just bagged a big Soviet defector. Someone had leaked the details of Yurchenko’s case (though not his exact name) to the press. The agents suspected that the leak may have come directly from CIA director William Casey. Yurchenko was livid. “You’ve betrayed me and my family,” he told Colin Thompson.
Desperate to keep Yurchenko cooperative, the Americans conceived an even more outlandish plan: a two-week dude road trip through the Southwest. They flew from Washington to Phoenix, six men in all—Thompson of the CIA, Rochford and a fellow FBI agent, two security guards, and Yurchenko. The idea was to get Yurchenko out of the usual safe-house routine, into space, moving through the country, and, if necessary, to find him a woman. Bearden told one of the guards, “If there’s a need to get this guy laid, for goodness’ sakes, get him laid.”

A RUSSIAN MOLE AT THE CIA WAS KNOWN AS “MR. ROBERT.”
Early on, the men developed a genuine camaraderie. In Phoenix, they rented two cars and drove north, wearing civilian clothes, Yurchenko in a pair of chinos and a checked shirt. With his elegant handlebar mustache, he didn’t exactly look like a corn-fed American, but he blended in well enough, at least until he had to order food and his Russian accent emerged. He asked for oatmeal one morning at a diner. The waitress didn’t follow. Huut-meal, he repeated in frustration. Huut-meal.
The Americans took him to see the spectacular Hopi ruins east of Flagstaff, 1,000-year-old caves chiseled into the hills, and introduced him to the game of golf near Scottsdale, where they played a round at a desert resort, the sun setting behind the red hills as the group walked up the final fairway. They drove to the Grand Canyon, which impressed Yurchenko (“He kept saying, ‘We have lovely places, too, but they’ve been defaced with graffiti and stuff,’ ” Thompson recalls), and north through the red-rock formations of Utah (Yurchenko picked up a handful of rocks and gave one to each of the Americans as a gift, saying it meant they were all on the same team).
They took him, briefly, to Las Vegas and offered to procure a prostitute from Mabel’s Whorehouse, a legal brothel. Yurchenko declined. He was more interested in exploring Mormonism—he had heard about the religion somewhere, its customs and temples. So the Americans drove him to a Mormon temple in St. George, Utah. “I think he was looking for something to hang onto,” Thompson says. “He didn’t really know what he wanted to do. He was trying to figure it out.”
Toward the end of the trip, the Americans got word from Washington that some intel guys were flying out to Lake Powell, near Hoover Dam. They needed to talk with Yurchenko about the NSA mole. The men took Yurchenko to Lake Powell, where they showed him a photo array of suspects. Yurchenko pointed to the picture of a 44-year-old former NSA computer analyst named Ronald Pelton. The following month, Pelton was arrested. (He was later sentenced to life in prison but released in 2015.)
Rooting out Pelton was a moment of elation for the Americans: The long weeks of debriefings had paid off, and a second KGB mole had been identified and neutralized. But it marked a point of no return for Yurchenko. The Americans told him he might be required to testify in court, thereby exposing himself as a KGB traitor. The group flew back to Virginia, where Bearden gave Yurchenko another piece of news: The CIA’s physicians had determined that Yurchenko’s stomach pains were caused not by cancer but by a minor bowel disorder. It was treatable. To Bearden’s confusion, though, the spy seemed crushed.
“He had this fatalist Russian attitude: Oh, I’m going to die, so I’ll make the world right,” Rochford says. “And [when] he realized he wasn’t going to die, he just went: Oh, shit.”
One of the Soviet Union’s most effective spymasters during the Cold War was Oleg Kalugin, a KGB major general, the youngest man ever to attain that rank. At the peak of his career, Kalugin commanded all Soviet counterintelligence operations around the world and was in charge of propaganda efforts against the United States. Among the hundreds of his underlings in the early 1980s was an inexperienced officer named Vladimir Putin. “Totally inconspicuous,” Kalugin says of young Putin. “He was totally unremarkable and uninteresting.”
Now in his eighties, Oleg Kalugin is a US citizen and an adviser to the International Spy Museum in Washington. He was granted asylum here in 1995 and later called Putin a war criminal; a Russian court tried him in absentia for treason. I called him on a recent weekday morning and said I was working on a story about Yurchenko.
“Well, that was so many years ago,” the former KGB spy chief said in a quiet voice. After a minute or two, he warmed to the conversation, laughing occasionally. “For some reason,” he said of Yurchenko, “I didn’t like him.”
Kalugin was in St. Petersburg when he got news of Yurchenko’s August 1985 defection. It hit the KGB like a bomb. High-level KGB staff officers, the most trusted people in Soviet society, simply didn’t defect—it was a potential propaganda disaster if the news became public. “That was just unbearable,” says Kalugin. “A major trouble. Some people would really lose their careers.” Then there was the problem of the secrets themselves, the secrets Yurchenko was spilling to the enemy.
The KGB didn’t need to guess about what Yurchenko was telling the Americans. The Soviets knew something the Americans didn’t. In addition to the two traitors Yurchenko had revealed to his debriefers—Edward Lee Howard and Ronald Pelton, whose betrayals were in the past—the KGB had recruited two other moles inside US intelligence agencies, and these men were still active. One was Aldrich Ames, the CIA officer who had originally picked up Yurchenko at Andrews Air Force Base. The other mole was an FBI special agent named Robert Hanssen. Both were now providing the KGB with secret reports on the Yurchenko case. In other words, the KGB had ears inside the Virginia safe house. The safe house, unbeknownst to the Americans, was compromised.
This didn’t mean there was an obvious way for the Soviets to get Yurchenko back. There weren’t any good options. The colonel was being held under 24-7 guard, and besides, he apparently wanted to be there. Abducting him would be impossible. If he were ever to return to the Soviet fold, Yurchenko would need to meet them halfway.
On October 31, 1985, three months after arriving in the United States, Yurchenko went to see the Halloween parade in Georgetown with his CIA psychologist, who neglected to inform his colleagues. Two days later, on November 2, Yurchenko talked his young, inexperienced CIA guard into taking him shopping at a department store in Manassas. He was carrying a few thousand dollars in cash that the CIA had given him for spending money. At the department store, he bought a new hat and a razor to shave his handlebar mustache. After making a call on a pay phone, he suggested that he and the guard go into Georgetown for food at a French restaurant called Au Pied de Cochon, on Wisconsin Avenue.
It was a cold, rainy Saturday afternoon. The guard ordered soup and lobster. Yurchenko asked him what America did to defectors who try to escape. Do they get shot? The guard said no, America didn’t treat defectors that way. Yurchenko rose. “I’m leaving now,” he said, “I’ll see you—goodbye. If I don’t come back, it’s not your fault.”

“THESE GUYS HAVE A BIG PLAN.”
Yurchenko left the restaurant. The CIA guard did not follow.
Yurchenko walked up Wisconsin Avenue for 20 minutes to the new Soviet Embassy. The call he’d placed from the pay phone a few hours earlier had been to a contact at the embassy. Greeting him there was Victor Cherkashin, the KGB’s masterful counterintelligence chief, the man who had recruited Ames and Hanssen.
“Molodets [good man]!” Cherkashin said, as he later recounted in his book, Spy Handler. Yurchenko claimed not to know how he had ended up in the US. He said “the bastards” had kidnapped him in Rome and drugged him.
Cherkashin knew Yurchenko was lying, because his mole inside the American intelligence community had given him the Americans’ own debriefing reports. The counterintelligence chief knew Yurchenko had betrayed the USSR. But Cherkashin decided to go along with Yurchenko’s story.
“He was back now, but we didn’t know how he’d behave,” he wrote. “Maybe he’d want to return to his American friends after a couple of days. Our priority was making sure he didn’t defect again before we got him to Moscow as quickly as possible. That meant pretending to be overjoyed to see the prodigal son back on our side while posting security guards to make sure he didn’t sneak out.”
On the afternoon that Yurchenko walked out of Au Pied de Cochon, the CIA’s Colin Thompson was about to leave his house for a date when the phone rang. It was Yurchenko’s guard saying he didn’t know where the defector was. Thompson immediately called the FBI. Then Bearden and Rochford got calls, and pretty soon a bunch of guys met in Georgetown and spent the next six to eight hours prowling around outdoors in the rain, looking for their KGB friend, finally giving up around 3 am.
The next time they saw Yurchenko, he was on live television.
On November 4, Soviet diplomats called a surprise press conference at the Soviet Embassy in Washington and invited the DC press corps. Reporters arrived to find Vitaly Yurchenko in a suit and tie, sitting at a dais, flanked by several Soviet officials.
Yurchenko opened with a few words in wobbly English. “I’d like to tell you, during these three horrible months for you I didn’t have any chance to speak Russian,” he said. Then, speaking Russian through a translator, he began to tell the press what he said was the true story of his ordeal.
According to Yurchenko, on August 1 he had been sitting in St. Peter’s Square in Rome, drinking a bottle of boiled water to soothe his stomach, when “I felt something like liquid splashed on me” and “everything went dark.” When he regained consciousness, he found himself in a house in Virginia, where CIA men forced him to take “some special drugs” and interrogated him, keeping him there against his will for months. As a result of the drugs, he couldn’t recall what he had told the CIA, but he was sure he had never willingly revealed any Soviet secrets.
“Please, ask CIA officials what kind [of] secret information I gave them,” Yurchenko asked the reporters. “It would be very interesting for me to know, too, because I don’t know.” He also complained that the Americans “made me play golf” and “let me get a suntan to change the greenish color of my face.”
Although American journalists were skeptical of Yurchenko’s story—he looked healthy, tanned, not like a person who had been drugged or abused—the event “went swimmingly” from the KGB point of view, Cherkashin later wrote. “I don’t know how many Americans believed Yurchenko’s kidnap story, but his return hurt the CIA’s image regardless. The agency had either been completely taken in by a brilliant Soviet intelligence officer, or allowed one of its top Soviet defectors to slip out of its hands.”
Soon after, the KGB trundled Yurchenko into an Aeroflot plane and flew him back to Moscow, where he was welcomed as a hero. This, too, was part of the propaganda ruse: If the KGB punished Yurchenko, it would tip its hand to the Americans, revealing that it knew Yurchenko was a genuine defector, at which point the Americans might wonder how the KGB knew that and might go looking for moles again—for Ames and Hanssen, the active moles the Americans didn’t know about yet. So as hard as it was for some KGB officers to stomach, they had to give the traitor a medal instead of shooting him. “Either Yurchenko is as smart as the devil himself,” one KGB officer concluded, “or he is the luckiest bastard alive.”
US officials scrambled to explain what had just happened. Was Yurchenko a real defector who simply changed his mind? Or had he been a fraud from the start, a KGB plant who gave false information to his American handlers, leading them into a hall of mirrors?
It was a John le Carré novel come to life, the whole world chewing over the mystery. A reporter asked President Reagan at a White House press conference, “So were we had by Yurchenko?” Reagan replied, “There’s no way that you can prove that isn’t so. On the other hand, there’s no way that you can prove that it is.” The President confessed to feeling “perplexed” that anyone who could live in the United States “would prefer to live in Russia.”
An advisory panel convened by Reagan decided that the CIA and FBI had made serious mistakes. Intelligence officials were hauled in front of Congress to answer hostile questions about the episode, including the CIA’s brief attempt to find Yurchenko a prostitute. Looking back, Bearden drawls: “Maybe they think we should have gotten him someone who looked like the Rose Bowl queen. But what the f— do they know?”
The embarrassment of losing Yurchenko did light a fire under the US’s counterespionage efforts. “One of the things Yurchenko told us is that they had a program in place to recruit CIA officers, and they were willing to pay $1 million apiece for the recruitment of a CIA officer,” Rochford says. “We thought: Holy shit, that’s what we should be doing for the KGB.” Rochford started traveling around the world trying to convince KGB officers to turn. “I probably pitched anywhere between 38 and 40 KGB officers. The reason we did that is because we figured the more people we asked, the more chance you have to get it.” His effort ultimately bore fruit in 2000, when one of Rochford’s Soviet sources revealed that FBI agent Robert Hanssen was a KGB mole.
At that point, the KGB’s other mole, Aldrich Ames of the CIA, had also been caught and imprisoned. A minor conspiracy theory gained currency in US intelligence circles that appeared to make sense of the Yurchenko mess almost ten years earlier: Maybe he had been sent here by the KGB with explicit orders to reveal two of its past moles, Edward Lee Howard and Ronald Pelton, to throw America off the scent of the KGB’s active moles, Ames and Hanssen.
“Anytime you’re expending resources chasing your tail,” says Vince Houghton, the curator of the Spy Museum, “you’re less likely to expend resources to find somebody who’s already there.” But after the fall of the Berlin Wall and the breakup of the Soviet Union, former KGB officers rejected that theory in interviews, published memoirs, and personal conversations with their former American adversaries, although some US intelligence officers continued to believe that Yurchenko was a false defector from the start. The Soviet spies admitted that Yurchenko was the genuine article, an actual turncoat. “They said, look, he’s nuts. He’s a crazy guy. He was conflicted. He had a lot of personal problems. They said he’s a legitimate defector who came to you with legitimate information.”
By the time Rochford and his colleagues learned the truth about Yurchenko, the battle of wits between the American agencies and the KGB appeared to be over. When Robert Mueller took over as FBI director in 2001, he continued a downsizing of the counterintelligence department that his predecessors had started. “I was in the meeting when he told us: Stop wasting your time on something like the Russian intelligence,” recalls David Major, at the time an FBI counterintelligence leader and a former National Security Council staffer under Reagan. Major argued that it was only a matter of time before the lack of attention was “going to bite us on the ass. And it has, hasn’t it?”
Today, of course, Mueller is on the Russia beat full-time. The KGB, it appears, never really went away—it changed its name to the FSB and kept marching. When I called Yurchenko’s former CIA and FBI handlers to discuss the events of 30 years ago, each drew a line from that case to Russia’s interference in the 2016 election, as if it were all part of the same basic story. Michael Rochford said he hopes US agencies will get more aggressive about recruiting Russians to spy for America, so we can know Russia’s intentions.
“What Putin’s done in the long run is he’s woken us up,” Rochford says, “and hopefully, the leadership of the FBI and CIA are woken up, too.”
As for Vitaly Yurchenko himself, all American traces of the man have receded into time and mystery. The French restaurant where he ate his last American supper became a Five Guys. The day he escaped, he left behind his golf putter at the Virginia safe house. Rochford called it the “Yurchenko putter” and kept the club for years.
The Soviets who knew the real story of Yurchenko never forgave him for defecting. Oleg Kalugin and his KGB colleagues saw Yurchenko as “a traitor who just failed in his treason and had to come back,” he told me. “People despised him.”
I asked Kalugin if he still viewed Yurchenko as a traitor 32 years later. “Oh, yes!” he said. “Why should I have changed?” Yurchenko had betrayed his profession and punctured the myth of KGB officers as invincible chess masters, cold-eyed men who never sleep and never lose.
“Russia, the country, is run by the KGB guys,” Kalugin said. “That’s what people do not understand. Not the military—by the KGB. Either professional, like Putin, or former KGB assets. That’s what the whole country is about.”
Yurchenko may still be alive in Russia. He would be 81 now, his handlebar mustache faded to white. In the early 2000s, Milton Bearden went to Russia to research a book about the CIA’s battle against the KGB, The Main Enemy, cowritten with national-security reporter James Risen. In Moscow, Bearden sat down with several of his former KGB adversaries and interviewed them about various Cold War episodes, including Yurchenko’s defection and re-defection. The Russians were candid. Yurchenko, they said, was living in Moscow. He worked as a security officer at a Moscow bank. And one day, they said, if there was any justice, his body would be found “somewhere along the Moscow River.” Sooner or later, Vitaly Yurchenko was going to pay.

“...In other words, his whole point of focus is to come here and to teach you to be extraordinary…” JZ Knight

My name is JZ Knight and I am the rightful owner of the body, Ramtha and I are two different people, two different beings. We have a common reality point and that is usually my body. Though we sort of look the same, we really don’t look the same.
All of my life, ever since I was a little person, I have heard voices in my head and I have seen wonderful things that to me in my life were normal. I was fortunate enough to have a mother who was a very psychic human being and never condemned what it was that I was seeing. I had wonderful experiences all my life but the most important experience was that I had this deep and profound love of God and there was a part of me that understood what that was. Later in my life I went to Church and I tried to understand God from the view point of religious doctrine and had a lot of difficulty with that because it was sort of in conflict with what I felt and what I knew.

Ramtha has been teaching about the days to come -- the days that are already here -- since his first appearance in the late 1970s. Last Waltz of the Tyrants, the Prophecy REVISITED, captures Ramtha s teachings and predictions over twenty years ago that describe the drastic changes that are coming from natural upheaval to economic and political turmoil. Ramtha explains the forces behind these changes and the many events throughout history -- including our near future -- which have been carefully planned out by a few.
Many things Ramtha predicted three decades ago can clearly be confirmed in many of today s news headlines, yet there is more to come, according to Ramtha. Although the future may seem daunting and grim, Ramtha forecasts a greater destiny in the making with the help of advanced civilizations who love humanity: the dawning of superconsciousness -- a new age -- and a more evolved human race.
This destiny -- those changes I talked about so long ago in your time -- is coming into full manifestation. Go and look at them. What sounds common to you now was uncommon then.

Review
I really find Ramtha, Last Waltz of the Tyrants, the Prophecy REVISITED, more that just a new edition. It is so relevant that you almost forget when this teaching was originally delivered. Amazing! I find the headline news cited in the first pages of the book very effective. The footnotes are very explanatory and give dimension and perspective to the text. Good job!
JZ s introduction gives, as always, that human touch and point of view that makes the message more understandable and brings it closer to the reader. The text itself flows very well, while maintaining the unique characteristics of Ramtha s language.
Congratulations to all of you who worked on this splendid book.

Western State Sponsored Terrorism:
False Flags Spreading Islamophobia, Race and Religious Wars and New World Disorder

“The easiest way to gain control of a population is to carry out acts of terror. [The public] will clamor for such laws if their personal security is threatened”.  – Josef Stalin
Western national governments using their intelligence communities to collectively manufacture, orchestrate and stage violent world events promoting their endless war on terror and then employing their bought and paid for MSM propagandists to subsequently shape public opinion and perception has increasingly been the twenty-first century’s go-to menu utilized by the powers-that-shouldn’t-be. This presentation will provide a dot connecting overview that examines this unfolding process in detail showing how the US government and its Western vassals have deployed the Hegelian Dialectic to systematically create crises, and then implement a so called solution in order to gain maximum control over the global population to divide and rule the planet. Ultimately the globalists’ objective behind all these disturbing events and developments is leading humanity towards their New World Order tyranny of a one world government.

The biggest pivotal game changer since the JFK assassination has been 9/11, when a handful of powerful Zionist neocons in Washington deploying CIA, FBI and Pentagon collaborators worked directly with Israel and its Mossad along with Saudi intelligence to cold-bloodedly murder 3000 Americans in their much needed “new Pearl Harbor” event in order to pull off the manufactured launch of their war on terror. With the deep Bush-bin Laden family connection going way back as both business and terrorist crime partners, globalist George Bush senior then acting as CIA director and Jimmy Carter’s foreign security advisor-fellow globalist Zbigniew Brzezinski employed a rag-tag group of Saudi Wahhabis called the mujahedeen to fight as US proxy terrorists against an overextended Soviet Army in the notorious empire graveyard Afghanistan in the late 1970’s. Brzezinski went on public record bragging that he had enticed President Carter to “sign the first directive for secret aid to the opponents of the pro-Soviet regime in Kabul” a full half year ahead of the Soviet invasion of Afghanistan in December 1979. That’s how callous the psychopathic architects of war are to think nothing of starting a proxy war that lasts a decade and kills a million Afghans. Thus the bloody origins of this unholy marriage between US Empire of Chaos and its proxy war ally the Islamic jihadists still going stronger than ever today can be traced as far back as June 1979.

Playing the same demonic mastermind role that Dick Cheney later commanded during George W’s reign of terror as the real power behind the executive throne, throughout Reagan’s 1980’s then Vice President George Bush was busily funding, arming and training Islamic extremists led by up and coming Osama bin Laden to ultimately defeat and help destroy the crumbling Soviet Empire. Bush was also the central figure behind the Iran Contra scandal coordinating the enormous CIA cocaine smuggling operation that financed arms supplied to Central American death squads that the actor in the White House affectionately called his “freedom fighters.”
Next came redeployment of Osama’s al Qaeda brand of terrorism again acting as US proxy mercenaries throughout the Bush-Clinton years of the 1990’s to help balkanize Yugoslavia into a half dozen broken pieces. Enter the neocons think tank Project for a New American Century (PNAC) formed in 1997 and its treatise “Rebuilding America’s Defense” that became their “Mein Kampf” playbook on how to conquer and control the world. Thus the stage could be set to create the fabricated storyline of Osama bin Laden “directing” from his Afghan cave his “vast” al Qaeda network of terrorists to act once again as CIA hired guns posing as the 9/11 box cutting patsies. For decades al Qaeda as a US terrorist creation has served the exact same purpose that Islamic State’s been providing Empire the last three plus years in Syria as America’s number one anti-Assad proxy war ally.

Thus by the time the manufactured attacks on the Pentagon and Twin Towers went down in September 2001, Washington had already been maintaining an enduring, cozily active partnership with Islamic terrorists for more than two decades, nearly twice as long as the DC cabal’s secret partners-in-crime relationship with al Qaeda/Islamic State since 9/11. And now at this very late hour with 2016 knocking on our door, Americans need to urgently realize and ultimately accept that key policymakers in our own treasonous crime syndicate government have been in bed with terrorists since they created their Frankenstein monster nearly four decades ago. To this very day the criminals in Washington and the West have misused Islam as their scapegoat to turn ignorant, dumbed down Westerners against Muslims worldwide in order to promote a war that never ends for the benefit of the ruling elite, its central banking cabal, the military industrial complex, the security-prison industrial complex and the pathway towards a one world government. Manufactured wars manufacture failed state wastelands in the Middle East and North Africa that in turn manufacture mass migration crises in the West while manufacturing cold war 2 hostilities against Russia and China manufactures the pretext for WWIII – all by globalist design to implement New World Order tyranny.

Every false flag event of the twenty-first century involves state sponsored terrorism, including all the most deadly mass shootings and bombings carried out in both North America and Europe. 20-year Marine Corps military intelligence and CIA officer David Steelehad this to say in a TV interview earlier this year:

Most terrorists are false flag terrorists, or are created by our own security services. In the United States, every single terrorist incident we have had has been a false flag, or has been an informant pushed on by the FBI. In fact, we now have citizens taking out restraining orders against FBI informants that are trying to incite terrorism. We’ve become a lunatic asylum.

The CIA and FBI operate as rogue forces unto themselves regularly engineering false flag shootings like the one earlier this month in San Bernardino. The US used the international intelligence community to pull off last month’s false flag in Paris. The elite’s public servant puppets are traitors betraying the trust of their own citizenry by using national security and counterterrorism as their standardized excuse to enslave the Western population enforcing draconian laws obliterating our freedom, civil liberties and rights to privacy. Though most Westerners might agree that their freedoms have been compromised, they still resist dealing with the fact that their own governments are using them as pawns by murdering their own people in ruthless pursuit of deep state’s obsession for absolute control.

The tumultuous events of 2015 have brought the ruling elite’s endgame scenario into operation as the perfect storm of co-occurring disasters that are creating dire enough conditions necessary to ignite another manufactured world war – but this time against nuclear powered Russia and China – while the elite’s manufactured house of cards, debt-based economy is totally collapsing and the divisive effects of the elite’s manufactured mass migration crisis triggers widespread civil, religious and racial unrest and violence to simultaneously usher in martial law conditions throughout Europe and North America. According to the globalists’ diabolical design, out of the ashes of death and destruction will emerge a “sustainable,” drastically reduced global population of a half to one billion human inhabitants living out the rest of their days on earth in total bondage serving a genocidal power elite ruling over what’s left alive on the planet with its fully operationalized one world government.

Recently I’ve presented how this endgame scenario is manifesting through an analysis of the destabilizing and polarizing geopolitical eventsunfolding in the last couple years resurrecting cold war 2 hostilities between the East and West, also how the ruling elite’s been utilizing its divide and conquer strategy to achieve its wicked ends. But this current examination will unveil the common systematically applied patterns of how Western oligarchs have been exploiting Islam through relentless major false flag operations intended to create religious and race wars by fomenting Islamophobia and xenophobia. The common elements blaming Muslims in numerous false flag operations will be examined linking the February 1993 first World Trade Center bombing, the 9/11 attacks, the 3/11 Madrid train attacks, the London 7/7 subway attacks, the 1/6/15 Paris Charlie Hebdo shootings and last month’s Friday the 13th attacks. These state sponsored terrorist attacks that became Spain, UK, and France’s 9/11 false flag massacres have been designed to spread panic throughout the Western world in order to enflame an artificially created war on terror at the expense of Muslims worldwide, us and our freedom. The so called terrorists are mere extensions of the Western crime cabal murdering its own people for the sake of New World Order tyranny and control.

A number of smaller scale attacks that likewise smack of false flag operation serve the same function to keep terror alive, move toward domestic gun confiscation and convince Americans to willingly sacrifice their freedom and civil liberties for increased deep state surveillance and control under the false pretense of national security. The domestic mass shootings allegedly committed by Muslims in the last half dozen years will not be covered here. However, in another installment common patterns of smaller scaled state sponsored terrorism perpetrated on US soil using Muslim patsies could be further linked. Among them would be the first Fort Hood shooting in 2009, the April 2013 Boston Marathon bombings, the May 2015 Garland, Texas aborted attack, the July 2015 Chattanooga shootings and the recent December 2nd San Bernardino killing spree. The increasing frequency of these alarming attacks only conditions the populace toward accepting deep state tyranny as a necessary sacrifice in exchange for a false sense of security that only equates to a deeper state of insecurity, fear and terror.

1993 First World Trade Center Bombing

The earliest major terrorist event on US soil blaming Muslims with often overlooked false flag implications was the February 26, 1993 World Trade Center bombing a full eight years ahead of 9/11. An October 28th, 1993 New York Times article reported that the FBI well in advance of the World Trade Center bombing was aware of plans that Muslim extremists were making bombs that would be used to blow up a number of targeted sites in New York City. Former Egyptian army officer turned FBI informant Emad Salemapparently was able to secretly infiltrate the bomb making group and a plan was in place for him to substitute a non-explosive powder. According to Salem a supervisor from the New York FBI office called it off and the mammoth Trade Center truck bomb explosion proceeded unhindered, killing six people, injuring over a thousand and causing over a half billion dollars’ worth of structural damage.

Throughout his couple years of undercover work for the FBI, Salem had secretly taped hundreds of hours of meetings with FBI personnel and eventually some of the tapes were turned over to the NYT. The article makes reference to Salem’s anguish, guilt and upset over not being allowed to thwart the Trade Center bombing. An FBI agent identified as Susan Floyd attempted to console him, “Hey, I mean it wasn’t like you didn’t try and I didn’t try… you can’t force people to do the right thing.” At one point Salem wanted to take the matter to the highest level, registering his formal grievance against the New York FBI to the higher ups in Washington but was dissuaded by FBI supervisor John Anticev who told Salem that the New York office wouldn’t want “things… to go to Washington DC.”

Once the WTC bombing took place, the FBI swooped in to arrest four Muslims charged with the crime, all tried and convicted within a year. After interviewing a fifth man accused in the bombing, Abdul Rahman Yasin was strangely released by the FBI and allowed to fly back to Iraq in 1993. According to a May 31, 2002 CBS article entitled “The Man Who Got Away,” the FBI let Yasin go because he “was so helpful and cooperative, giving the FBI names and addresses, that they released him.” Unless Yasin was on the FBI payroll like Emad Salem holding potentially damaging evidence that could become a major liability for the FBI in its role in the bombing, a terrorist would never be allowed to leave the country. 

While the FBI was touted for its quick work in bringing to justice the “guilty parties,” in fact the FBI was complicit in aiding and abetting what amounts to state sponsored terrorism that killed a half dozen Americans and injured 1042 more that it could have and should have easily prevented but chose not to. Not surprisingly, despite the New York Timesarticle, the FBI’s gross criminal misconduct was never pursued by either the mainstream press or the Department of Justice. Had they, 3000 American lives at that same World Trade Center could have been spared from the biggest mass murder on US soil a few years later, along with over 13000 Americans who’ve died fighting the Iraq and Afghanistan Wars and the millions who perished in the Middle East and North Africa that should all be alive today. The sinister truth was never followed up because the crime cabal government led by President George HW Bush just one month out of office at the time was already executing US state sponsored terrorism for his New World Order takeover on the exact same 9/11 spot using Muslim stooges much the same way eight years later his son used 19 more. It’s no accident that Bush made his New World Order speech to Congress on 9/11/91, exactly one decade to the day in advance of 9/11/01. Author of Fifty Years of the Deep State Mark Gorton concluded George senior was the mastermind behind both the 1993 forerunner as well as the big 9/11 killer:

The purpose of the 1993 WTC bombing was to create a rationale for a “security upgrade” of the WTC complex.

At a cost of a half billion the Port Authority director of New York and New Jersey brought in Kroll Associates led by Rand counterterrorism expert Brian Michael Jenkins to perform a “complete security analysis.”

Another 9/11 inner circle player was the future Secretary of Homeland Security (2005-2009). In 1993 Michael Chertoff was the United States Attorney for the district of New Jersey. His neocon affiliations resulted in a meteoric rise in his legal career into a national security tsar. Another Zionist holder of dual Israeli-US citizenship, Chertoff wrote a substantial part of the unconstitutional Patriot Act, Bush-Cheney’s illegal torture practice and draconian laws that permitted detainment of hundreds of Muslims in the US. For one month in 2000 our future Homeland Security director was both defending an accused terrorist financier linked to supplying arms to Osama bin Laden while appointed by Bush to head Operation Green Quest, a multiagency initiative investigating terrorist funding sources. By corrupt design, an unbelievable conflict of interest that of course attracted no press.

Just like Dick Cheney who went from Secretary of Defense under Bush senior to CEO of Halliburton and then onto VP with Bush junior awarding enormous no bid contracts to his old company bilking billions off the Iraq/Afghanistan Wars, their forever war on terror and Homeland Security… or the Bush family’s deep state connections to the bin Ladens and the Carlyle Group. Our shadowy international crime syndicate government is trademarked by high level cronyism constantly floating shady players in and out of public life, revolving doors between government, think tanks, Fortune 500 corporations, and special interest lobbyism. As a typical example, Michael Chertoff is now teamed up as a partner with former NSA director General Michael Hayden in a private security consulting firm for the government, just like Hayden’s NSA successor General Keith Alexander.

In a post-9/11 interview former station chief of the Dallas and Los Angeles FBI offices Ted Gunderson stated that he believed the CIA and FBI are ultimately responsible for most acts of terrorism. He quoted a statement made by a Department of Justice attorney back in the 1980’s who had just authored the antiterrorism legislation that eventually would become the Patriot Act, “People will have to be killed for this to pass.” Then came the first Trade Center Bombing in 1993 where only six people died and it failed to pass muster with Congress. So the ante was upped big time with the next inside job – the 1995 Oklahoma City bombing that killed 168 Americans including many women and children to put homegrown terrorism on the USA map to stay but also ensured that Clinton’s Antiterrorism Act of 1996 passed. However, the end product signed into law was a watered down version from the original legislation. So leave it to the neocons to come along a couple years later with their PNAC to pen their infamous plot calling for a “new Pearl Harbor” event to jump start their twenty-first century’s hegemonic conquest and war on terror, and as they say the rest is history, unfortunately still being scripted and staged today by either those same neocon traitors or their protégés.

The 1993 twin towers attack paved the way for the 2001 monster attack to finish the job, more than likely vaporizing the towers with a Tesla scalar weapon in combo with prepositioned demolition explosives inside the three buildings. In the same way the Boston Marathon bombing provided the dry run for a major US city lockdown, likewise, this year’s Paris attacks served the same purpose for France and the Jade Helm Operation as the beta test for US military massively deployed over nine states amongst the civilian population, all incremental steps tightening the NWO security noose moving the West toward full blown martial law tyranny coming soon to your neighborhood with perhaps the next false flag or two. 

9/11

So much has already been written on 9/11 exposing the dozens of in-our-face gaping holes in the deep state’s false narrative. Again the US had created Osama and al Qaeda and had already been effectively deploying them as allies on two separate proxy warfronts (Afghanistan and the Balkans) in back-to-back decades by the time fake planes flew into the towers and Pentagon. The CIA was busted handing out free passports in Jeddah, Saudi Arabia so that 15 Saudis amongst the 19 box cutting 9/11 stooges could freely travel back and forth from their native homeland to America. Former Consular General Michael Springmann maintains he was “repeatedly ordered to issue more than 100 visas to unqualified applicants.” Despite the boldface lies coming from Bush and his national security advisor Condoleezza Rice, “I don’t think anybody could have predicted that they would try to use an airplane as a missile, a hijacked airplane as a missile,” the facts speak for themselves. As far back as the mid-90’s it was known that Islamic extremists were taking flight lessons in America to strategically blow up key buildings on US soil.
Like every major terrorist act this century, the CIA and international intelligence community have a long history of already knowing the whereabouts of closely monitored terrorists. The lead 9/11 hijacker said to have flown the flight out of Boston into the North Tower, 33-year old Saudi Mohamed Atta, turns out was not an Islamic fundamentalist at all but a hard drinking, coke snorting, bar hopping, party hardy animal. Evidence shows he was a protected multi-lingual intelligence asset that met and knew CIA and German security personnel. Additionally, two years prior to 9/11, it was reported that a Pentagon employee was ordered to remove all documents indicating Atta was a terrorist. While living in Naples, Florida Atta was connected to a notorious CIA run Venice Municipal Airport making frequent trips to South America for cocaine. Three of the four alleged hijacking pilots on 9/11 were graduates of that same Venice airport aviation school. The CIA facilitated flying lessons for Arabs entering the US in 1999 in a number of states including California, Arizona, Oklahoma and Florida. Concerted efforts were made by FBI headquarters to sit on reports coming in from field offices at the time alerting that Muslim foreign nationals were suspiciously taking flying lessons. So we absolutely know federal authorities allowed several alleged 9/11 terrorists into the country through unauthorized obtained passports and set them up in aviation schools across the nation including a CIA drug connected one in Florida despite awareness since the mid 90’s of terrorist plans to fly planes into US buildings. The “new Pearl Harbor” in the making.
Ample anomalies further cast doubt on the official story. Airline manifest lists providing complete passenger names and seat numbers onboard the four 9/11 planes were obtained from the trial of the alleged 20th hijacker Zacarias Moussaoui arrested just weeks prior to 9/11. These lists indicate that none of the identified 9/11 terrorists were even onboard those ill-fated flights. The question then becomes how did they get onboard the planes or they never were on those flights to begin with. Backing up the latter conclusion, confirmations have surfaced that a handful of the false flag Muslim patsies are still alive. As many as ten have been reported in various locations after 9/11 with several threatening to sue the US government for personal damages.

Then there’s that deep layered fine ash and rubble strewn for blocks around what used to be the two tallest buildings in the world and lo and behold within a couple days after the attack suddenly an intact, unblemished passport belonging to a suspected 9/11 terrorist was miraculously found a block away from ground zero. Recovering instant ID’s so that the mainstream media hype can spin to pin instant blame on those violent Muslim terrorists is a common theme running in nearly all false flag operations where the demonic Western crime cabal quickly points the finger at practitioners of Islam religion as the world’s twenty-first century bogeyman.

Bush-Cheney’s overt delays and sabotage of an investigation getting started finally yielded to their initial first choice heading the commission none other than fellow globalist war criminal Henry Kissinger. But since that was met with a brick wall of resistance, they settled on cherry-picking implanted shills to stack the 9/11 commission to ensure another whitewashed cover-up just like the JFK Warren commission was secured. Contrast that with the blinding speed at the crime scene to rapidly dispose of all non-powdered rubble of steel fragments shipping it all off to China prior to any forensics analysis. Willful destruction of evidence where thousands died in itself is a crime of the highest magnitude but it too was swept under the filthy carpet. Yet the criminal Bush-Cheney regime stole two electionsand started two illegal costly wars killing millions with complete impunity and they’re still walking around free. Slowly their tons of blood soaked karma are catching up to them. A three judge panel earlier this year ruled that foreigners can sue members of the Bushadministration for racial profiling and other charges after the feds swept up visa violators who were Arab or South Asian and detained them for months after 9/11. Though it’s not for war crimes or treason, it’s at least a start.

On 9/11 Cheney made sure that all the air defense systems on the East Coast of the United States were ordered to stand down, and that the US military defending our shores happened to be participating in live action drills far enough south in North Carolina to not be available to defend the capitol until after 10:45AM. Meanwhile a major military exercise Global Guardian normally scheduled every year in October mysteriously got moved up a month, no doubt to not interfere with the neocons’ false flag agenda. The Chairman of the Joint Chiefs of Staff General Henry Shelton who was not among the conspiratorial insiders was conveniently sent away flying over the Atlantic to a meeting in Hungary when the towers were struck, allowing his vice chairman General Richard Myers who was an insider to within days replace him as Chairman.

Another key 9/11 architect was Paul Bremer who two years later would disastrously lead the grand theft looting of Iraq during the first US occupation phase. It was Bremer’s shortsighted decision to disband Saddam’s 400,000 man security force that became the single biggest catalyst for creating a new formidable enemy insurgent that would cost thousands of American soldiers’ lives. But on the morning of 9/11, instead of attending a scheduled meeting at his workplace in the South Tower, he was among the first talking heads on TV pointing the finger at Osama while 200 colleagues in his company were being slaughtered. But then that’s the kind of heartless psychopath with blood on his hands that gets to rule the world.

And how can we ever forget that premature announcement by the infamous BBC reporter while Building 7 was still standing 47 stories tall right behind her a full 20 minutes before it fell. Its less than seven second freefall cannot be explained away by one little smoldering fire observed in a small section after the demolition order “pull it” was heard by Larry Silverstein the World Trade Center lease owner who’d just bought an insurance policy against airplanes flying into his buildings  for an $4.6 billion payout. 

Then there were the hundreds of witnesses who distinctly heard countless loud explosions like a controlled demolition caught on tape prior to the sudden collapse of the tall buildings defying all laws of physics. The thermite debate of conventional demolition explosives versus what likely was a strike by a scalar pulse weapon delivering directed free energy technology unfortunately has bitterly splintered the Truther movement into two camps – the free energy Dr. Judy Wood proponents and the Architect and Engineer crowd. Dr. Wood maintains that the sheer volume of a million tons of steel from 110 story buildings would produce far more bulk volume rubble than the fine powder lack of volume dust. She also cites the lack of seismic activity that buildings with that much mass would produce. Her latest book “Where Did the Towers Go” attempts to answer how so much massive steel and concrete could be instantly vaporized by the controversial Tesla free energy technology. Those more conventional scientifically minded challenge her theoretical hypothesis accepting that all that steel and debris simply was propelled by the controlled demotion into falling over a wide area. What all doubters of the 9/11 Commission’s fake rendition know is that fires on the uppermost tower levels could never have produced sufficient enough heat to melt into molten steel much less bring down the tallest buildings in the world. And it doesn’t take hundreds of architects and scientists telling us it’s impossible even though they did.

Then there’s the Mossad connection to 9/11 whose fingerprints invariably are left on virtually every false flag operation. It was no accident that the Washington Times ran an article on 9/10/01 reporting that a group of 60 US Army officers had just released their Fort Leavenworth study calling Israel’s intelligence agency a “Wildcard. Ruthless and cunning. Has capability to target U.S. forces and make it look like a Palestinian/Arab act.” Less than 24 hours later the Mossad made good on that prophetic warning playing a key role in murdering 3000 Americans. Evidence includes the van full of Israeli Mossad agents posing as movers caught attempting to blow up the George Washington Bridge. They were detained but then mysteriously released even after police dogs detected traces of explosives in their van. A few weeks after 9/11 another moving van of Israeli agents were stopped in Pennsylvania possessing a video of Chicago with zoomed up shots of the Sears Tower. The local police contacted the FBI and soon enough they too were let go. Then there were the Israeli “Mossad art students” who had rented out an entire floor in one of the towers for months leading up to the attack all the while stockpiling prepackaged explosives. And of course we can’t forget those dancing Israelis whooping it up in the New Jersey park celebrating their victory watching the fruits of their labor come crashing to ground zero.

The fact that no body parts or actual authentic crash site in Pennsylvania of Flight 93 was ever found indicates yet more cover-up. It was a small area that appeared staged with very little debris, nothing like any other plane crash. Evidence that at least one of the four “hijacked” airliners flew to Westover Air Base in Chicopee, Massachusetts and the strong plausibility that those so called cell phone conversations were actually recorded from the ground inside a Westover hanger and not from the air is highly probable.

The little bombshell announcement the day before 9/11 that went unnoticed uttered by Defense Secretary Rumsfeld that his Pentagon could not track $2.3 trillion in its spending. Since 1996 that squandered unaccounted for pile of taxpayer dollars has soared to an incredible $8.5 trillion dollars. The Pentagon is the only government organization that hasn’t even been audited in this century. Rumsfeld of course was off the hot seat the very next day purposely timed since he was one of the original PNAC “new Pearl Harbor” planners. And then Building 7 housed all the accounting records for the IRS, the Defense Department and the CIA. How convenient to rip America off and then destroy all the evidence. The criminal malfeasance was off the charts. But with 3000 Americans dead, who bothered to notice? Speaking of financial criminality, how about all those millions made on the stock market just prior to 9/11 by inside traders who just stole unaccounted for taxpayers’ money – a double rip-off. Then like the JFK coup de taut, “mysterious” deaths started surfacing of witnesses who began talking truth exposing deep state lies. The precedent of falsely blaming Muslim terrorists for an inside job was already established eight years earlier using the exact same crime scene after a half billion dollar “security upgrade.” The inside job was finally done.

Then there’s that missile sized hole left in the Pentagon where an airliner would be impossible to fit through. Interestingly, in late October 2000 less than a year prior to 9/11, there was a simulation exercise of an airliner crashing into the Pentagon. Meanwhile on the morning of 9/11 just when the US fired one of its own missiles into the Pentagon building, a few miles away sat NWO ringleader George HW meeting at theRitz Carlton with his favorite Saudi family the bin Ladens. A little later while not one plane was seen in the sky over America, only the bin Ladens were free to safely fly US airspace home. Bush even authorized a special plane to pick up two dozen bin Laden relatives in ten different US cities while America it remained a no fly zone for the rest of us. Aside from excessively close ties with the Saudi family, such preferential treatment for relatives of an accused murderer of 3000 Americans strongly suggests that Osama had nothing to do with the attacks.

Then there was George junior looking as confused and feeble-minded as ever playing classroom Patti-cakes in his brother Jeb’s state of Florida when informed that America was under attack. Our commander-in-chief sat there frozen for an additional “eight or nine minutes” nervously twitching as though he’d seen that movie before… because in fact he had, the government had been practicing simulations of planes flying into the World Trade Center for months prior to 9/11.

As a matter of fact, as standard operating procedure in every false flag operation including the big one on that 9/11 morning, within minutes that the US government was sending mock passenger airliners crashing into the twin towers and a missile later photoshopped into an airplane piercing the Pentagon building, a live simulation exercise involving planes flying into buildings was actually being conducted at the CIA Reconnaissance Office in Chantilly, Virginia. Though the drill was not reported until it leaked out at a Homeland Security conference nearly a year after 9/11, AP picked the story up describing the drill as “a pre-planned simulation to explore the emergency response issues that would be created if a plane were to strike a building.” George W merely shirked off the suspicious timing with his characteristically smug smile calling it “a bizarre coincidence.” One would have to be as moronic as George himself to not accept the fact that every single false flag terrorist event is accompanied by a government exercise that invariably goes live with every state sponsored terrorist attack on record.

After just scratching the surface here, the list of sloppy 9/11 anomalies is seemingly endless. Finally with any act of terrorism, the first question to ask is who stands to gain the most with both the motivation and means to pull off a false flag operation on such a large scale? Definitely not some bushwhacking Bush friend in an Afghan cave dying of kidney disease. Nor any Muslims in the Middle East, North Africa or anywhere else on the planet maliciously used by Zionist conspirators as convenient scapegoated targets. Only longtime US Empire partners-in-crime Israel, Saudi Arabia and the PNAC power pinheads were “gifted” by 9/11’s readymade villain for their endless war on terror. Only those three governments comprising the real axis of evil in this world stood could gain so much by the preplanned events orchestrated on 9/11 and really no one else. Noted intelligence analyst George Friedman writing for a known CIA website stratfor.com on the very same day as 9/11 made it explicitly clear:

The big winner today, intended or not, is the state of Israel. There is no question that the Israeli leadership is feeling relief.
Friedman already knew that this “new Pearl Harbor” would result in US Empire fighting Israeli proxy wars in the Middle East to eliminate any potential Arab opposition while elevating Israel’s regional hegemony to unprecedented heights.


3/3 Madrid Train Bombings

Then exactly 911 days after 9/11 came Spain’s turn for its 9/11 when ten Madrid train bombs ripped apart four fully occupied passenger cars in moving in different locations transporting morning commuters comprised mostly of a lower class immigrant population killing 191 people and injuring 2050 more in the worst terrorist attack in Spanish history. One million Spaniards had protested vehemently against the Iraq invasion the year before despite the right wing prime minister’s support for the war architects meeting with George W. Bush and Tony Blair just three days prior to their Iraq invasion a year earlier. Moreover, with the attacks occurring just three days prior to Spain’s national election, its timing was intended to instantly enflame the wrath of the Spanish citizenry to turn from being against the war to seeking revenge against al Qaeda Islamic terrorists. But instead the public astutely interpreted the attacks as blowback for the incumbent prime minister’s pro-war involvement that had defied the will of the people. After 3/11 nearly 30% of Madrid’s population of 11.4 million residents took to the streets, and the socialist challenger Luis Zapatero won a landslide victory two days later and within the week declared a Spanish troop pullout of Iraq.
This heinous operation had all the earmarks of a highly professional hit job on the Spanish people by Mossad. But its intended purpose completely backfired. The press was persuaded by early arrests of North Africans to rule out initial perception that it was the work of Basque separatists that Spain’s rightwing prime minister adamantly accused as perpetrators of the ghastly crime. As the investigation dragged on with so many botched, changing and conflicting errors and revisions, the press gradually grew divided, split over who the real culprits were though it eventually became clear that no real link to al Qaeda was ever established despite all the planted false flag evidence Mossad had purposely left behind.

From the very start to the verdict finish the police and prosecution engaged in criminal misconduct resulting in growing public suspicion of planted police evidence, witness and evidence tampering, record falsification and extreme incompetence. Similar to 9/11, a top down decision to immediately remove critical crime scene evidence ensured that all four train cars were destroyed within two days after the 3/11 blasts. This marks a historic pattern of deep state willfully committing the blatant crime of destroying crucial evidence and thereby circumventing the possibility of the full truth from ever being uncovered. Recall the 9/11 rubble quickly shipped off to China preventing forensic investigation. That those in the highest echelons of governing power in Western nations would so flagrantly and repeatedly conceal the darker truth of their own criminality speaks volumes.

Another virtual constant in false flag operations is ensuring suspects cannot talk by simply killing them. Conflicting and altered police accounts of how a gang of seven prime suspects were tracked down to an apartment in a Madrid suburb (similar to the recent Paris attacks) three weeks later where all were purported to have blown themselves up along with one policeman in a dramatic suicide act only further muddled the case. The police claimed the group made calls to family just prior to the explosion yet no evidence other than a supposed brother to one of the dead suspects was called as a witness and he maintained he did not believe it was his brother he spoke to.

Moreover, the bomb squad handled the initial chemical explosives analysis instead of the normally better trained and equipped forensics experts to further obscure the actual contents of the bombs that killed so many train victims. Years went by before the chemical analyst even divulged a list of chemicals and her explanation of as to why that critical information was withheld so long – because no one explicitly had asked her for it. Because the investigation was so mishandled clearly by design to intentionally hide the truth, the trial was delayed by three years and in the end only one conviction resulted despite lack of any real solid evidence pinning him to the deadly blasts. What seems most apparent is more Muslims were used as patsies in a failed attempt to link the terrorism directly to al Qaeda. Those fingered were amateurs purposely utilized as fall guy decoys to facilitate the real terrorist professionals – the Mossad – to easily get away with mass murder [again just like 9/11].

7/7/05 London Bombings

As part of a PSYOPS operation, on May 16, 2004 the government-controlled BBC aired on its BBC ONE Panorama broadcast “a what if” script imagining a terrorist attack striking three underground tube subway stations and an above ground bus simultaneously. The panelists were discussing the need for the government to be able to control how the media would present this “hypothetical” terrorist attack. Little more than a year later on 7/7/05 three tube subway bombs exploded underground followed less than an hour later by a blast on a two decker bus in London killing a total of 52 people and wounding hundreds. Immediately afterwards on the same day UK Foreign Secretary Jack Strawmimicked past false flag terror events connecting 7/7 to Muslim extremists, “the attacks bear all the hallmarks of al Qaeda.”

As if the BBC broadcast a year earlier outlining in detail the future terror come true isn’t enough to arouse suspicion that 7/7 was another preplanned false flag operation, just like 9/11 and 3/11 before it, another scheduled crisis drill was taking place at the exact same time and places as the real terrorist events. Former senior Scotland Yard counterterrorism expert Peter Power acting as managing director of Visor Consultants, the private security firm contracted with London Metropolitan Police happened to be conducting a live terror exercise in the same subway stations where the bombs exploded and was soon providing a live BBC interview.

Many parallels unfolded between the London bombings and 9/11. Whereas all the air defense systems on the East Coast were shut down on 9/11, hundreds of surveillance cameras within the subway stations were strangely turned off or out of order on 7/7. An Israeli security company called Verint Systems happened to be in charge of all those nonfunctioning surveillance cameras inside London’s underground subway system. Also based on both witness testimony and physical evidence, at least some of the bombs were not carried in backpacks by alleged suicide bombers but planted underneath the train. The metal flooring where the bombs went off ripped holes pushing adjoining metal upwards to indicate the blast came from below.

It’s been determined that the four suspected suicide bombers the authorities maintain were responsible for 7/7 were hired as role players testing subway security and had no idea that their MI5 handler was setting them up to be sacrificed victims in a state sponsored terrorist plot. Moreover, according to Charles Shoebridge a London Metro Police detective and terror expert, the supposed 7/7 ringleader of the group was a paid informant working for MI5 at the time. The four young men aged 18 to 30 were apparently duped by British intelligence into becoming UK’s 9/11 Muslim patsies.  Another terrorist expert and former Justice Department prosecutor John Loftus told Fox News that the 7/7 mastermind Haroon Rashid Aswat was an MI6 asset protected by British security prior to the bombings. Other evidence points to a convicted US terrorist who as an informant was let out of prison after only four and a half years of a possible 70-year sentence to train the lead London bomber. A New York judge described the terrorist Mohammed Junaid Babar’s service as “exceptional cooperation.” Babar’s probable role as a US informant while training the 7/7 fall guy and his extreme lenient treatment by the US only adds more weight that the London bombings were entirely staged state sponsored terrorism. And just like in both WTC bombings as well as the 3/3 Madrid bombs, accomplices of the crimes were set free.

It turns out that Visor Consultants were also part of a larger US Homeland Security sponsored Atlantic Blue joint security exercises in the same London underground subway system in April 2005. The US Homeland Security Secretary at the time Michael Chertoff, previously involved in both the 1993 and 2001 WTC incidents as well as defending a known arms peddler linked to supplying weapons to al Qaeda, contracted with Britain’s counterpart to run the mock terror drill that went live.

Adding further indication that 7/7 was a preplanned event, the Scotland Yard contacted the Israeli Embassy in London warning of an impending bomb attack prior to the explosions. Israel’s Finance Minister at the time Benjamin Netanyahu was advised not to attend an economic conference organized by the Embassy, Tel Aviv Stock Exchange and Deutsche Bank. The conference was scheduled at the Great Eastern Hotel located very near the Liverpool Street subway station as one of three targeted tube stations. Former New York City MayorRudolf Giuliani of 9/11 fame happened to be staying at that same Great Eastern Hotel at the time the 7/7 bombs went off. After his politician run, Giuliani started his own security corporation and was a colleague of Peter Power. Coincidence? You be the judge.

Along with confirmed evidence of pre-knowledge of the false flag terrorism, numerous links between Netanyahu, Giuliani and Peter Power within the Western intelligence community have fueled speculation of both 9/11 and 7/7 involvement. Additionally their striking parallels reinforce the case for another inside job. Just as Bush resisted a 9/11 investigation, so did his British war crime partner Tony Blair. And the usual anomalies of changing false narratives, deep state secrecy enshrouded by withheld and/or omitted key evidence prohibiting full investigative disclosure, obstruction of justice, known intelligence involvement, immediate linkage by both government and media to al Qaeda as perpetrators and the same means and motive were present for both 9/11 and 7/7.

Three weeks prior to 7/7 the Telegraph announced a UK plan that by the end of 2005, battalions of British soldiers would begin coming home from Iraq. With a majority of Britons favoring pullout, support for the Iraq War was already sagging. So the criminal cabal represented by the US-Israel-UK realized to give its war on terror a shocking jolt, a “new 9/11” British-style would need to be injected. And since preparations had long been in the works that entire year preceding 7/7, the diabolical elite ordered the greenlight for the already scheduled training exercise to suddenly go live. Thus the US, Spain and Britain each had to endure its own “new Pearl Harbor” to ensure the ruling elite’s endless war on terror would stay endless.

January 7th, 2015 Charlie Hebdo Paris Attack

In early December 2014 France made its bold move to formally recognize the Palestinian state. At the same time it also sought lifting Russian sanctions led by the US. When you piss off the big boys of the world, the heart of the ruling beast the international crime cabal led by US Empire of Chaos and its Zionist masters, use of either false flag attacks or scalar technology producing unnatural “natural” disasters are a usual form of punishment. The biggest global bullies have been increasingly using those covertly sinister weapons to intimidate, pressure and threaten other less powerful nations for a quarter century now. And no sooner did the French government take the moral high ground, it was promptly hit with its turn to suffer the French version of 9/11, of course falsely blaming the 21stcentury villain – Muslim terrorists.
The three Charlie Hebdo patsies – all French citizens – who allegedly attacked the satirizing cartoonist office killing seven and then went on a three day shooting spree killing ten more people before dying in police shootouts were all very much known to French intelligencefor an entire decade. The Kouachi brothers had arrived back in France fresh off the battlefields in Syria fighting against Assad forces that of course are completely backed by the US and its NATO allies. Thus they had been armed and trained as the West’s proxy war terrorists. And France is a NATO member and active player in the bombing and terrorism that took down Gaddafi in Libya as well as a strong supporter of terrorist groups fighting in Syria that the Hebdo participants belonged to. Thus France’s aiding and abetting the Hebdo terrorists automatically makes them culpable for killing its own citizens. French intelligence and security forces apparently had been tracking the Hebdo terrorists for many years with one of the jihadists actually arrested twice for terrorist activities in 2005 and again in 2010 and another one for an attempted jail breakout of a fellow terrorist. French authorities were all too aware of both brothers’ extremist leanings, the appeal that joining al Qaeda to fight and die for their violent cause and their professed desire to fight against what they observed were American injustices occurring daily in Iraq.

Both of the Kouachi brothers were reported by US and French officials to have spent time in Yemen receiving arms training in 2011. The older brother is reported to have even briefly lived across the hall from the Nigerian “Underwear Bomber” years earlier in Yemen prior to his Christmas day 2009 arrest at the Detroit airport. That the Hebdo terrorist is directly connected to the Nigerian terrorist is significant in that US intelligence was caught planting the Underwear Bomber with a fake bomb and was allowed to board the plane without a passport for false flag purposes to create another scare in the air in order to panic America. Just more PR lies reinforcing fear of Muslim terrorists lurking behind every corner was busted in another staged incident to promote US state sponsored terrorism and its war on terror. It provides preexisting context for government deception that preys on vulnerable young Muslims as war on terror assets in a long history using false flag terrorism. As an aside, the false flag underwear bomb was used to sell invasive body scanning equipment to TSA aggressively being peddled by none other than Homeland Security head Michael Chertoff who happened to own large shares in the body scanning business. More conflict of interest by a morally corrupt, treasonous, high powered public official getting richer off more false flags promoting his fake war on terror that inflicts so much death and suffering on others.

The older Hebdo brother Said was also alleged to have received his terrorist marching orders in Yemen from the US born, radical Islamic preacher Anwar al-Awlaki, who before Obama’s drone strike assassinated him in 2011 and then his innocent Colorado born 16-year old non-terrorist son two weeks later. Awlaki was a who’s who celebrity amongst the terrorist world as he apparently was invited to dine at the Pentagon shortly after 9/11. He was questioned about his connections to three of the alleged 9/11 terrorists, and been confirmed to have met with the Underwear Bomber and shared known links to the Islamic psychiatrist Army Major Nidal Malik Hasan responsible for the 2009 Fort Hood shootings. Insightful US historian Webster Tarpley has even gone so far as to classify Awlaki as “an obvious US double agent who has been used to give the al Qaeda seal of approval to dozens of terrorists.” That would explain why Obama chose to kill an American citizen without arrest or trial. The Hebdo terrorists never operated as lone wolves but were part of a much larger cell of terrorist networks connected to al Qaeda and/or ISIS, although the affiliated al Qaeda branch was not known to team up with ISIS. In any event, the underlying connecting hub is undeniably the creator – US Empire and its NATO allies along with Israel, Saudi Arabia and Gulf State monarchies.

So with such a long terrorist rap sheet as veterans of US foreign supported wars, for the world to simply accept the Paris authorities’ bogus claim that there are just too many potential terrorists in France to keep close tabs on is not to be believed. French security forces are tasked with daily monitoring over a thousand identified jihadists that are known to have fought in Syria, Iraq or Yemen and returned home to France. Yet the official line that such high profile seasoned terrorists that embarked on the killing spree last January in Paris somehow as of late spring 2014 just simply vanished off France’s radar screen is preposterous. If we’re expected to swallow that line, we’re also supposed to buy that 9/11, 3/11 and 7/7 weren’t really false flags at all. Or that the Western crime cabal never supports nor uses known terrorists to commit terrorist acts in the Middle East, Africa, North America, Europe or wherever. And Western governments never lie, cheat or steal, nor commit criminal offenses engaging in state sponsored terrorism to strip away civil liberties for more invasive surveillance and control over the global population. You can pull the wool over the eyes of some of the dumbed down masses for only so long before a growing segment finally starts to wake up to deep state’s dark sinister truth. And we’re waking up now.

A question of a third possible Hebdo suspect remains unanswered. This is another common occurrence, confusion over identifying the patsies from their handlers. Some eyewitnesses claimed that a third terrorist drove the getaway car after the Hebdo office attack. An 18-year old brother-in-law of one of the Kouachi brothers who did not participate in the attack turned himself in when he saw his name flashed all over the news as the third gunman due to his identification papers suspiciously found in the terrorists’ getaway car as a standard false flag calling card. Strange considering he was not part of the attack at all and was subsequently released from police custody two days later. Recall the miracle find right after 9/11 of the passport belonging to one of the terrorists. This immediate linkage following a false flag terrorist event with instant identification and association of more guilty Muslim terrorists has become cliché in false flag-ology and it’s another malicious weapon in deep state’s arsenal against Islam.

As with virtually all the so called terrorist acts allegedly committed by “Muslim extremists,” Western governments represented by their intelligence agencies actively plan, recruit, coordinate and execute state sponsored terrorism that receives further spin by mainstream propaganda controlling the official false narrative to manipulate and shape public perception and opinion, in effect brainwashing the North American and European populations into associating Muslims with terrorism even more than associated with it being a religion. Tony Blair, Bush, Cheney, Obama all have carried the torch advancing elite’s divisive agenda convincing citizens to fear Islamic extremism as violent, bloodthirsty terrorists desiring to kill every last one of us infidels in this world. False flag terrorism leads the way to promote fear and hate. The bottom line reality is that over 90% of terrorist acts in America have been committed by non-Muslims.

Another noted peculiarity without closure occurred at the kosher Jewish deli where the self-proclaimed ISIS terrorist was killed in a shootout with police after he murdered a policewomen and five deli patrons held hostage. It was initially reported that he had an accomplice inside the deli grocer believed to be his common law wife but then it was later confirmed that she had already fled the country and seamlessly slipped through the Turkish border into Syria. So what happened with that other phantom player? Was he or she a handler or just a prop as part of the larger false flag backdrop? In any event, the deli outcome left none of the known terrorists alive, which of course is extremely common in false flag operations since dead men can’t reveal the truth. It also turns out that back in 2009 the deli terrorist met in person then French President Nicolas Sarkozy after obtaining employment in a local factory. By itself this could well be pure coincidence but when taken into account with all the numerous circumstantial anomalies as part of another false flag, it becomes one more factor to weigh in and consider.

Then just a few days later one of the lead Hebdo investigators shows up suddenly dead in his office with the official storyline that he committed suicide. This very strange twist of sudden mysterious deaths cropping up after a false flag however is extremely common and almost always points to silencing those who knew too much and were unwilling to support the false flag narrative covering up the truth. That this odd development was treated with near media blackout only casts more doubt and suspicion that his death was caused by foul play and not suicide.

Yet another coincidence or anomaly – the day before the Hebdo attack the French aircraft carrier quietly set sail to the Middle East to fight ISIS. Deep state has a long history of using false flags to whip up anger, revenge and war lust amongst populations that may be reluctant or opposed to war. But terrorism never fails to entice an instant majority that otherwise might be hesitant and wavering to fervently get behind any military intervention. Recall that this was the signature calling card in Mossad’s filthy fingerprints left all over the 3/11 Spain tragedy that fortunately backfired.

The first reaction to such an egregious assault as terrorism is to most often automatically produce a public surge to seek immediate emotional revenge through retaliation. As a recent precedent, when French citizens objected to getting involved again in more fighting in Iraq, suddenly ISIS released on YouTube their beheading of the week featuring a Frenchman and that eliminated any reservation. And some of those graphically violent videos have already been proven and admitted to being staged events for shock and awe theater. Of course since Hebdo has all the trappings of a false flag, leaving the day before a staged terrorist attack actually occurs on French soil might be just another indicator of inside pre-knowledge. French President Hollande was planning to make what would have likely been a controversial announcement to send the naval fleet on January 14th, but sending the weapon of mass destruction complete with fighter planes and a submarine off to combat and vanquish those evil Middle Eastern terrorists became a done deal.

As a follow-up to Hebdo, noted Islamologist Kevin Barrett who maintains close ties with Muslims on the ground in France and North Africa writes of the brutal totalitarian oppression currently underway in NATO ally France. He calls these two false flag attacks on both Parisians and Muslims more Gladio operations engineered by the international Anglo-Zionist crime cabal. Keven both translated as well as recently posted the original account written by Algerian-French citizen Mohamed Boutiche. As a Hebdo witness holding damning evidence that it was another inside job, Boutiche has revealed that the Kouachi brothers were French intelligence assets used as Muslim patsies on 1/7. Mr. Boutiche’s disturbing plight as a persecuted witness details the criminal transgressions the French thug overlords posing as the French government have been resorting to in their determined efforts to silence him one way or the other. The national government’s security apparatus has been cracking down with ironclad fist to squelch freedom of speech, dissent and all efforts exposing the criminal truth regarding deep state-sponsored terrorism. Sadly, what’s happening to Mohamed Boutiche is happening to honest hardworking citizens throughout the Western world who see grossly criminal injustice being customarily swept under the rug. That perfect storm of world war the ruling elite’s been brewing includes not just fighting other global powers that oppose the senseless violence and destruction perpetrated by US Empire-led West, but war against both Islam as well as all humanity. Every citizen of the world who dares to stand up to the evil and speak the truth is now being targeted as enemies of deep state. Mohamed Boutiche’s battle is our battle.

November 13th, 2015 Friday the Thirteenth Paris Attacks

Again timing is everything when it comes to false flags. October saw Putin shocking and rocking the boat making an enormous dent indestroying ISIS infrastructure and with the Syrian army cutting off Islamic State’s vital supply line from Turkey into northern Syria, an ISIS longtime stronghold. The US policy of protecting the terrorists in its pretend war was abruptly turned upside down. Obama’s status as a world leader was badly upstaged and humiliated at the September 28th UN meeting when Putin outed him as a fraud and liar and again weeks later when he exposed the fact that the US and the West including France were the chief ISIS financiers and the only reason why the terrorists have been steadily winning, growing stronger and spreading their violent plague far beyond just the Middle East and North Africa. Putin was radically changing the geopolitics chessboard, threatening to destroy the West’s no longer secret terrorist ally and Assad was successfully averting US Empire’s regime change operation.

Moreover, the political tide was dramatically turning. European nations like Germany and France were recognizing Putin’s strengths as a dynamic, take charge kind of world leader that stood in total contrast to Obama’s feeble lack of leadership and his subversive deceit and destruction. The US led wars created the massive refugee crisis Europe is and will be reeling from for years to come. The US led sanctions against Russia were and are hurting Europe more than Russia. Italy is now pushing back against EU sanctions. The phony US led allied air coalition against ISIS was in total shambles. Saudi Arabia announced it was pulling out. With the nuke deal over Iran, the US-Israeli juggernaut controlling the West was crumbling. France, Germany and Italy have been experiencing serious misgivings over the increasingly volatile mess the US had created in both Syria and Ukraine. Europe does not want to be dragged into World War III against nuclear-powered Russia and China. Yet with reckless abandon the US-NATO appear hell bent on igniting a global war fought in Euro’s backyard. France and Germany were increasingly weary over further involvement with their Empire puppet role. Status quo as set and controlled by US Empire of Chaos and Destruction was fast falling apart. France was ready to jump ship just as the damn was about to break.

Since the temporary war mongering effects from last January’s Hebdo attack had long been evaporated and with Putin’s unanticipated monumentally decisive sea change shaking the balance of world power, Empire of Chaos and Destruction desperately knew it had to reassert itself if its unipolar world hegemony was to be salvaged. The war in Syria and ISIS were both being rapidly lost, once again outsmarted and defeated by grandmaster Putin. Desperate times call for desperate measures.

Enter CIA Director John Brennan who goes fast to work to come up with a plan to hatch a far more potent, “new 9/11” inside France. On October 29th Brennan hosts a conference meeting with his French counterpart along with a former Mossad director and an MI6 consultant and came up with Friday the 13th‘s Paris II false flag attacks. On the second day of their conference a Russian airliner flying over the Sinai was suddenly blown up killing all 224 Russians onboard. At the time the US and Israel happened to be engaging in a nearby joint military exercisewhile their Islamic State terrorist ally most likely snuck the crude bomb onboard the Russian plane while parked at the Egyptian airport. Take that Putin! The Empire strikes back!

Two weeks later 130 people in Paris were suddenly dead and hundreds more fighting for their lives in nearby hospitals in the worst attack on French soil since WWII. A large scale, highly coordinated and well-organized Friday night massacre was simultaneously launched at multiple locations. The Friday night massacre was totally preplanned. If you don’t believe me, just ask Brennan himself who was already playing Monday morning quarterback the following Monday when he readily admitted to the press that the international intelligence community had long seen this attack coming. Like Hebdo, 9/11 and all the rest, the Muslim fall guys on the 13th had been monitored for months and years in advance as well. Former antiterrorist Judge Marc Trevidic interviewing French jihadists back in August alerted the French security forces that ISIS was planning a hit on a Paris concert venue.

In an assault and siege at the Bataclan Theater where the Eagles of Death Metal band was performing a live concert, three alleged gunmen opened up firing off hundreds of rounds with their assault weapons into a defenseless, unsuspecting audience of 1000 killing 89 concertgoers. The one theater photo of the deadly crime scene released to the public showed bloodstained carpet streaks clearly indicating the bodies had been dragged and carefully laid into place just for this single photo with the conspicuous absence of any first responders and EMT’s tending to the bodies or crime scene. That alone makes it highly suspect. With 1000 concertgoers carrying hundreds of iPhones, not one other photo or video of the actual crisis in process, except one very poor quality, darkly lit footage lasting all of several seconds leading up to the alleged first gunshots. The video shows nothing and proves nothing except that authorities have chosen to withhold from the public massive amounts of evidence which of course only generate more reason for suspicion that the staged attacks were anything less than just more of the same old, same old – state sponsored terrorism willfully slaughtering its own people and then amateurishly engaging in yet another half-assed cover-up.

Also similar to 9/11, two months prior to the November attacks, the Jewish family that had owned the Bataclan for the last forty years decided to unload it, reminiscent of Larry Silverstein’s WTC lease and insurance policy. Mainstream press have recently made claims that the terrorists had targeted that particular venue because the owners were Jewish. As of 9/11/15 the current owner is the monarch from Qatar, the wealthiest of all Arab nations per capita and among Islamic State’s biggest Gulf State financiers. In the inside world of international terrorism comes Obama bud-Chicago mayor Rahm Emmanuel’s brother who booked the Eagles of Death Metal band to play at the Bataclan on last month’s fateful Friday the 13th.

Not far from the theater, from the first drive-by shooting to the third drive-by shooting for 11 straight minutes a black car with spoke rimmed wheels leisurely drove around the city rapid firing bullets into three different cafes and restaurants in touristy upscale District 11 killing dozens more. Strangely enough during this 11 minute killing rampage, the entire time the police were nowhere to be found as the car was allowed to freely navigate the Paris streets unobstructed to complete its deadly drive-by route without any law enforcement interference or presence. Already aware that a terrorist attack was eminent, it appears the authorities made a decision to simply let this savagely mounted second false flag assault on Paris this year just happen.

Meanwhile, other bizarre, red flag anomalies went down not far away from that concert hall. Three suicide bombers were busily blowing themselves up outside the Stade de France where France was playing Germany in a soccer match. Oddly only one pedestrian who happened to be passing by one of the bombers was killed, suggesting that these alleged suicide bombers could have actually been victims, either that or they foolishly failed to purchase tickets in advance. One was reported to have been prevented from entering the stadium by a Muslim guard. The whole purpose of a terrorist putting on a suicide bomber vest is to take out as many nearby victims as possible which would have obviously placed them all inside the crowded stadium where even French President François Hollande was a spectator. A true terrorist who hates the West and all our “freedoms” would have at least made better attempts to get closer to the French president before blowing himself up.

Immediately after the attacks the media announced that a Syrian passport was found on one of the three dead suicide bombers. Now all that fearmongering warning us of terrorists covertly posing as refugees coming to kill Westerners has now been predictably played out. We knew this was coming and of course expect more. Have you noticed how terrorists’ passports are incredibly durable? Recall the 9/11 passport that survived a vaporized WTC hit, and now this one showing up after a bomb goes off. Then the ID papers of an 18-year old brother-in-law who had nothing to do with the Hebdo attack mysteriously left in the gunmen’s getaway car.

From the beginning the agenda is for mainstream media to spread the news that another terrorist attack has been perpetrated by more Muslim terrorists. This dirty trick of “planting false evidence” is to instantly register in people’s minds the world over that the guilty murderers behind every heinous act of terrorism are Muslim terrorists. It’s become another standard false flag fixture. Even before any investigation has the chance to start, MSM ensures that it shapes worldwide public opinion and reality as judge, jury and executioner.

Speaking of which, no accident that President Hollande became a crowd witness to the explosions near the stadium, just as no accident that before the crime was even completed the French leader was declaring to the world that France was at war, and then kept repeating his “France-at-war” mantra over and over again. Thanks to the false flag formula before the smokescreen even cleared, the world was already convinced that more Muslim terrorists were murdering over a hundred innocent people who look just like you or me, that we [the West] are now really at war against those barbaric MENA monsters. No more Obama fake job war, this time the West really means it when they say we’re at war with those bad guy terrorists. And within an hour or so angry citizens in Calais began setting fires to a Syrian refugee camp as “righteous” retaliation against the twenty-first century enemy of all decency and white bread.

You can’t have a false flag without a co-occurring government exercise training or drill that goes live. This is the one constant that’s present in every false flag. And it’s always a bottom line giveaway that whatever event or crisis, however tragic, in actuality it’s preplanned. Patrick Pelloux is supposedly an emergency medical services specialist and a first responder in last month’s Paris attack as well as January’s Hebdo attack. What are the odds of that? But for all his “valuable experience,” he’s most likely a crisis actor, not an EMT. In any event, he was sure quick to book a radio spot interview confirming that a live drill had been conducted that very same morning on the 13th.

There was even a BBC-Building 7 prophetic touch or two during and even before that Friday the 13th evening when a Twitter account posted a description of the attacks two days in advance of the event. And then Wikipedia two hours into the attacks already had a completed and detailed summary of the night’s happenings including footnotes specifying “this is for Syria” mentioned by a witness, “5 or 6 terrorists” and “3 suicide bombers.” But the clincher was when Wikipedia specified that Hollande would make a televised statement declaring a state of emergency nearly a whole hour before he actually did! Can’t get any more preplanned than that folks. Our governments are killing us for their war on terror and to keep their secret ally ISIS going.

Let’s talk about motive and means that capitalize from such horrific events at our expense. Definitely not the Muslim refugees in Calais whose home got burned down. Nor any of the migrants in Europe or North America, or for that matter no ethnic Middle Easterner or North African regardless of how long they’ve been European or North American citizens. The whole lot of them undoubtedly are only being resented, distrusted and hated even more so by many who feel their native countries have been invaded by unwelcomed outsiders that are destroying their native cultural identities.

The ISIS terrorists would stand little to gain if in fact Hollande’s war and bombs are really dropping on them and not Syria’s infrastructure, ormilitary or civilians like so many US and Israeli bombs seem to target. Again, the only true winners in all these diabolical bloodbaths are the murderers themselves, and I don’t mean all the dead Muslims patsies posing as deep state KIA actors who can’t talk about their CIA or Mossad handlers. I’m talking about the ruling elite and their Western governments.

What did the Paris attacks do? The first thing Hollande did was shut down the French border, locking down Paris into martial law conditions and declaring a national emergencythat’s since been extended another three months. Like clockwork, it’s unleashing yet another round of draconian antiterrorism laws and raids intended to enslave the population even more. It also ensured that the one world government conference, I mean that UN Global Climate Change Conference, didn’t attract any unwanted visitors who would have protested that global warming is one big NWO hoax. So no one could show up in Paris to demonstrate or call attention to the truth and the ruling elite got their way once again, bringing their one world government one giant step closer for psychopaths. After all, to them, what’s 130 people dead if they’re not inconvenienced by a bunch of raggedy malcontent protesters?

Friday the 13th massacre was the crime cabal’s attempt to steal Putin’s thunder with a bloodthirsty renewed vengeance to expand the war in Syria in order to wrest control away from that wily Putin and re-secure Empire of Chaos’ full spectrum dominance and global hegemony. And the winner is…the war on terror, fully reignited and recharged. Within 24-hours France was once again dropping bombs over Syria, but now bombing like they never bombed before. Obama and his neocon cronies also are winners. Just when they were losing their war to Putin and Assad, now they enlisted on board the war zealot from France followed one by one with the UK, Germany and Italy. Whatever ground was being lost before in waning allied interest for war was instantly regained in spades by the Paris slaughter.

NATO was so gleeful and emboldened by the 130 dead that with Obama’s greenlight, a mere week and a half later they authorized fellow NATO member Turkey to commit an act of war against Russia by shooting down its fighter jet killing the pilot for simply flying inside Syria’s sovereign airspace at the request of its sovereign leader. And then lest we forget Israel and its Mossad, the undisputed masters of False Flags-R-US. Allied proxy wars against Muslims in the Middle East never fail to bring a big shit-eating grin to genocidal war criminal Netanyahu and his fellow Zionazis. The real reason terrorism struck Paris last month was to jump start US Empire’s failing regime change war against Assad and Putin in Syria. The same global fixation to maintain its unipolar prowess and hegemonic control at all cost is the same reason the US refuses to share a global balance of power with Eastern nations Russia and China. Bottom line, the globalists want war and terror and Empire dadgummit better deliver.

Conclusions


Though with each passing terrorist attack comes more anti-terror laws giving deep state unlimited power to track citizens’ every move on this planet, have you noticed it doesn’t seem to be making any difference?

After each deadly attack we learn the identified terrorists had been known to the authorities for months and even years in advance.


Clearly despite all their sophisticated technological means and usurped legal authority to track and monitor, both the frequency and magnitude of terrorist incidents just seems to be skyrocketing, and the disturbing facts presented below confirm this public consensus.


This suggests that neither the hi-tech tracking mechanism nor the increasing legal authority for invasively unlawful surveillance is working for us at all, or much more sinister and probable, deep state intentionally authorizes and manufactures terrorism at will.


And since governing Western powers have been proven beyond any doubt to finance, control and have long been in bed with the terrorists all along, the naked truth is that our own crime cabal government is killing us in more Gladio-type operations every year.

Another grim reality, we citizens are perceived by our totalitarian government as mere expendables, as longtime globalist guru Henry Kissinger has not-so-fondly referred to us as “useless eaters.” 

Moreover, this kind of increasing contempt and animosity has also been reflected in how our own Israeli trained law enforcement officers operating in police state USA have come to both view and treat us average everyday Americans.


And then for years such high profile globalists as Bill Gates and Ted Turner’s bogus misadventures have been casually calling forthinning the human herd down by 90%. With this all too sobering, bigger picture perspective, state sponsored terrorism is indeed very real… just another hard kill method in their unlimited WMD arsenal.

A few factoids:

The most recent global terrorism index (GTI) released a month ago reports that last year in 2014 the number of human lives lost to terrorism around the world rose by an astounding 80%, the highest it’s ever been.


The neocons who actually invented their war on terror out of thin air back in 2000 when they devised their nightmarish vision for this century, there was little terrorism to speak of, at least compared to today’s global terrorism that their diabolical policies have currently led us to in 2015.


Since 2000 and the Cheney-Bush-Rumsfeld PNAC, the number of people dying from terrorism has soared to nine times what it was. Deaths from terrorism in the Middle East from 2002 to 2014 have spiked 4500%.


Prior to the 2003 US invasion of Iraq, there were zero suicide attacks in Saddam’s WMD-free zone. Since then there have been 1892.


In the 14 years prior to 9/11 only one suicide attack was recorded in Pakistan. But since 9/11 where the US has been fighting its undeclared drone war for the past 14 years now, Pakistan has suffered 486 suicide attacks. Last year alone saw more civilians killed in Afghanistan at 2643 than ever before since the US 2001 invasion despite our military occupation and war lasting over a decade still raging on with no end in sight.


So much for America’s war on terror when all it has produced in this world is more war and more terror. But then that’s never really been the Bush-Obama objective. All along the real US Empire agenda has only been to increase terror around the planet. After all, terrorism-R-US. More terror, more fear, more control.

Globalists have long known that keeping humans afraid in the dark living daily in fear is the easiest way to control them.


Despite more 9/11-like terrorist attacks impacting the West, 78% of 2014’s terrorist attacks occurred in just five countries, the very ones that have been most destroyed by US wars – Iraq, Afghanistan, Syria, Pakistan and Nigeria. That fact only reinforces the earlier point, that wherever America fights its global war on terror always produces the most terrorism. As the world’s worst violator of state sponsored terrorism, it only makes sense that nations the Empire of Chaos and Destruction chooses to fight are where terrorism most flourishes. So much for our boys [and girls] in uniform being the good guys of the world.


This reality check also proves that the US military is not the global force for good as the propaganda commercials have always claimed.

It’s finally time we stop with the phony pious platitudes “supporting our troops” when we need to face the dark truth that the fruits of their labor have only made us less safe in a far more dangerous world. If you love our servicemen and women in uniform, remind them to honor their sworn constitutional oaths by protecting our nation and citizens from enemies both foreign and domestic.


Tell them not to fight in any more foreign wars but protect us from a criminal government that increasingly shows signs it plans use our own military to harm us.


Though volumes could be written on how our government is on course to do us grave harm, one simple question can suffice to illustrate that point. Why else would US Postal Service and the Social Security Administration be buying up billions of rounds of hollow point bullets? Perhaps one day they’ll deliver a bullet with our name on it instead of our mail. Or when we retire we automatically report to the SSI office where they line us up before a firing squad.

When it’s the governments engineering the state sponsored terrorism killing their own people that’s then used to justify more antiterrorism laws and more surveillance, the more is better syndrome is a trap, a deceptive excuse to imprison humans in tyrannical deep state misery. Plus even the experts who worked years at NSA emphatically unequivocally warn that more tracking simply doesn’t work to keep us any safer. Former NSA head of global intelligence operations Bill Binney believes the more is better syndrome actually interferes with trying to stop terrorists:

I am calling all these attacks a result of “Data bulk failure.” Too much data and too many people for the 10-20 thousand analysts to follow. Simple as that.

In conclusion,

first the US Empire created the al Qaeda/ISIS Frankenstein to promote its perpetual state of global terror, and then took turns replicating its “new Pearl Harbor” over and over and over again,

first on 9/11 in the US, then on

3/3 in Spain and then on

7/7 in the UK. Tragically with

last month’s bloodbath, two more this year have been added in France.

Then just three weeks after Paris, another false flag hit us much closer to home in San Bernardino killing 14, the biggest mass killing on US soil since the Sandy Hook false flag.


As a result,Americans’ fear of terrorism has never been this high since right after 9/11, dreading that only more terrorist violence is on the way since it’s clear the government cannot, or will not protect us, especially since own our government is the perpetrator. By design all this false flag terrorism is guaranteed to brainwash people into fearing Muslim terrorists when the actual murderers terrorizing all us citizens on this planet are our own treasonous governments, not their Muslim patsies.
The world needs to wake up and hold accountable the demonic, guilty architects inflicting so much blood, sorrow and terror on all of us. We can no longer afford to stick our heads in the sand hoping the problem will go away on its own. It won’t. Nor can we allow the ruling elite and its government errand boys and girls to continue killing us with impunity while deceitfully blaming the Muslims that only foments increasing hostilities, ignorance and hatred. Spreading the seeds of distrust and hate only assists the globalists’ agenda to divide and conquer the human domain handing them absolute power and control over the entire global population. The only sane and moral choice is to stand up for humanity and the truth in the face of the real enemy out to destroy us.

Trump: IG report reveals government overthrow attempt

Thoughts on the Horowitz Report, Part I: An Introduction
By Benjamin Wittes
 Thursday, December 26, 2019, 
https://www.lawfareblog.com/thoughts-horowitz-report-part-i-introduction
One of the striking features of the public reaction to Inspector General Michael Horowitz’s report on the FBI’s Crossfire Hurricane investigation is just how many people of just how divergent points of view are claiming vindication for whatever positions they held prior to the document’s release.
President Trump and many of his defenders took the report as validating their claims that the FBI leadership had been engaged in a politically motivated, treasonous coup attempt against the president—though the report concludes quite explicitly that nothing of the kind occurred. Many skeptics of the president’s conspiracy theories, by contrast, have focused instead on Horowitz’s rejection of the president’s “Witch Hunt” narrative—thus downplaying the report’s deeply upsetting findings with respect to the Carter Page Foreign International Surveillance Act (FISA) applications.
The two situations are, of course, not parallel. One side is actively misrepresenting what Horowitz found, while the other is merely emphasizing some of the report’s findings at the expense of others. But the result is that, once again, our two broad political movements are reading the same document and seeing in it entirely different texts.
The real Horowitz report has inconvenient sections for just about everyone—including for me. I am not thrilled, to cite one example, that then-House Intelligence Committee Chairman Devin Nunes correctly noticed in real-time what turned out to be genuine deficiencies in the FISA process, deficiencies of which I was in retrospect too dismissive. And, unlike Nunes, who is busy pretending in the report’s wake that those deficiencies somehow vindicate his larger claims of politicization and malfeasance at the FBI, I think it’s worth taking the whole document seriously.
I have now had time to read the report carefully and formulate my thoughts on it. This took some time, because it is actually a deeply complicated document. Many of my thoughts dovetail closely with themes David Kris has already laid out in his excellent piece on the report, so the series of posts that follows will cover some ground he has already walked.
The broad point I want to emphasize here is that the Horowitz report does, in fact, pose a deep challenge to those of us who have broadly defended expansive surveillance authorities over the past several years and regarded the FISA process as embedding adequate safeguards against abuse of those authorities. That challenge, however, is emphatically not the one that Trump and his supporters have lodged against the FBI and its integrity over the past three years. There is no criticism in this report of senior leadership at the bureau for acting politically or out of animus for Trump or sympathy for his opponent. Indeed, the identified errors are confined largely to line agents and a line lawyer. What’s more, Horowitz is unable to find evidence even that any of the errors or misconduct he identifies at this level were politically driven, though he does not rule out the possibility in certain cases. The question the Horowitz report raises is thus not—no matter what Attorney General William Barr may have said in his statement characterizing the document—whether the FBI was weaponized against a political campaign.
Rather, the challenge the inspector general’s report presents is a less exotic and much older one—the same challenge that mainstream civil libertarians have been putting forth since the passage of the Foreign Intelligence Surveillance Act in 1978. Indeed, even if the report offers no support for the idea of a coup, it still poses the question of whether the bureau’s day-to-day rigor and candor with the Foreign Intelligence Surveillance Court is adequate for the trust we have placed in it. And, in this sense, the challenge it poses is both deep and alarming. The errors Horowitz documents are numerous. Some of them, at least, are quite substantial. One may even have been intentional. Particularly cumulatively, they grossly undermine the integrity of several surveillance applications submitted to the court. Nobody who has defended the FISA process should be able to read this report without a great deal of anxiety about whether those of us who did so were being naively overconfident about its average performance.
It will not do to note that Trump’s allegations are wrong and to conclude from that fact that the problems Horowitz noted are minor—any more than it will do to note that Horowitz discovered significant problems and to conclude from that fact that Trump’s allegations must have been correct. Two points must be allowed to coexist: Trump’s allegations were slanders—slanders against individuals, slanders against the institution, and slanders against the men and women who work for the institution—and the FBI may have major problems in the FISA process.
I say “may” because the Horowitz report actually does not find that the problems are general ones. It finds very serious problems in the FISA process in the specific context of the investigation of Carter Page. Whether those problems are confined to that episode or whether they are more generalized—or whether they are episodic—is a critical question, perhaps the critical question, in determining just how serious the institution’s challenge is.
In a sense, then, the Horowitz report is really three quasi-distinct reports—each of which we ought to take seriously. One debunks the conspiracy theories. Another forensically examines the FISA process in the Page matter and finds serious deficiencies. And a third, lesser-noticed report makes a series of policy recommendations regarding the handling of sensitive political matters in the future, particularly with respect to Justice Department-FBI communications.
My goal in this series of posts is to examine each of these features of the Horowitz report—along with a series of questions they raise
W
hat are the areas of vindication for the FBI, and to what extent do any of the conspiracy theories survive the report?
Just how bad is the FISA mess the report documents, and to what extent is it plausible to use the dysfunction and misconduct Horowitz finds to—as Trump and Nunes seem to be doing—rehabilitate the conspiracy theories the report debunks?
Were analysts, including me and others writing on Lawfare, too quick to dismiss the so-called Nunes memo and too quick to take comfort in the response to it from Adam Schiff, then the ranking member of the House Intelligence Committee? What did Nunes get right?
Zooming out, how should we understand this report in the context of the three other major reports Horowitz has issued over the past two years on the FBI’s performance—and that of its senior leadership—during the 2016 election cycle? In other words, does the Crossfire Hurricane report look different if viewed in the context of Horowitz’s other criticisms of James Comey and Andrew McCabe?
And, finally, what should happen now? What remedies are appropriate for the problems found? And what further investigation is needed to assess that question? Are Horowitz’s suggestions reasonable? Is FBI Director Christopher Wray’s response appropriate? And are there other steps we should be contemplating?
Rather than writing this in a single long post, I am breaking up this work into a sequence of shorter essays, the second of which will appear on Friday, Dec. 27, and cover the areas in which Horowitz—sometimes despite himself—concludes that the FBI behaved appropriately.

Barbeio: The Story of Jesus Christ
Author: Riaan Booysen

The Violent Messiah
https://www.riaanbooysen.com/barbelo/christ-the-violent-messiah
WRITTEN ON 19 NOVEMBER 2014.
The Violent Messiah

Probably the most significant reason why many scholars reject the idea of a historical Jesus is the fact that the Jewish historian Flavius Josephus makes no mention of him, his disciples or their activities, even though Josephus belonged to the generation immediately following that of Christ (the two verses in which he seemingly does are almost certainly later insertions by Christians).
I managed to obtain a copy of an extraordinary book by Rupert Furneaux called The Other Side Of The Story. In this book I came across a very controversial statement by Furneaux, that Simon Peter had murdered Ananias and Saphira, two land owners who were supposedly ‘struck dead by the Lord’ when they failed to surrender their money. This immediately reminded me of a Simon I had read about in Josephus’ account of the wars of the Jews, a Simon who had plundered the houses of the rich and tortured many of them. Could it be that Josephus had indeed known at least some disciples and possibly even Christ, but by other names?
It did not take long to find this Simon. His name was Simon bar Giora(s). An intensive investigation revealed the following similarities between the two characters:

1. Simon bar Giora was the leader of the rebel faction called the sicarii, who hid their daggers underneath their cloaks. Simon Peter drew his short sword (a dagger) during Christ’s arrest.
2.   Simon Peter
=    Simon bar Jonah 
=    Simon bar Yonah[khir] (Hebrew) 
=    Simon bar Joachim (English) 
=     Simon bar Gioacchino (Latin, Italian) 
=     Simon bar Gioa[cchino] 
=     Simon bar Gioa / Giora / Gioras / Goia

In other words, Simon’s father was known by only the first part of his full name.


3. Josephus’ Jewish War: During the reign of Agrippa, Albinus, the procurator of Judea, conducted a wide-spread campaign to eliminate the sicarii and managed to capture and kill many of them. The sicarii reacted by kidnapping the children of the high priests and other officials, who were then forced to negotiate with Albinus the release of these victims in exchange for captured sicarii. 
The Acts of Peter: While Simon Peter was in Rome, four concubines of Agrippa and the beautiful wife of Albinus ‘came to Peter’, causing Agrippa and Albinus to rage and swear to kill Peter. Would these wives willingly have left the luxury and wealth of their homes to join a complete stranger? It would rather seem that they had been kidnapped either as bargaining chips or simply as an act of revenge on Agrippa and Albinus.

4.  During Christ’s march to Golgotha the Roman soldiers put a purple robe on him, but later removed it again. Simon bar Giora was also known as Simon bar Poras, the latter word a shortened version of the Latin word purpura (porpora in Italian) for the colour purple. Simon was therefore most likely known to the Romans as Simon, son of the Purple One (Christ). When Simon bar Giora was arrested, he put on his purple cloak before he surrendered, probably as a declaration that he was the one they wanted most.

 5.   The Other Side of the Story (Furneaux): Simon Peter murdered (the wealthy) Ananias and Saphira (for their money).

 Josephus’ Jewish War: Simon bar Gioras harassed (plundered) the rich men’s houses and tormented their bodies.

 6.   The Josippon on Simon bar Gioras: “He went therefore through all the cities of Judea and Galilee, causing to be proclaimed in the streets and market places, and sent his letters where he could not come himself, in this manner and form: “Whoso listeth … let him resort to me, I will deliver him from the yoke and danger of the laws, and will find him his fill of booties and spoils.”
 In Acts Simon Peter likewise addresses a crowd, “Fellow Jews and all of you who live in Jerusalem… Men of Israel, listen to this…”. At that occasion three thousand followed Peter.

7.   Josephus records that a man called Simon, who was “very accurate in the knowledge of the law” was summoned to appear before Agrippa for making an inflammatory speech to the people in Jerusalem. The New Testament relates that Simon Peter had been arrested by Agrippa, and in the Toledot Yeshu Simon Kepha (Simon Peter) is described as a “greatly learned man”. The Josippon relates that Simon bar Gioras, who was of noble descent, used to be “Prince and Captain” of Jerusalem until he was banished by Ananus. A confrontation between Simon Peter and Ananus is recorded in Acts.

8.   Simon Peter was imprisoned in the Mamertine Prison before his martyrdom. Simon bar Gioras was imprisoned in the Mamertine Prison before being executed.

If Simon Peter was indeed Josephus’ Simon bar Gioras, a vicious and violent man, would the other disciples of Christ not also have been like that? In fact, would they not have followed their master in this respect? In Barbelo I show that John the Beloved was non other than Josephus’ John of Gischala, the cruellest of the three rebel faction leaders during the Jewish revolt against the Romans. For example, both John the Beloved and John of Gischala displayed homosexual tendencies and both were sentenced to life imprisonment. The third faction was led by Eleazar, most likely Christ’s Lazarus. Regarding Christ, there are numerous subtle suggestions and outright accusations that he was a violent man:

9.   James and John once asked Christ whether they should call down fire from heaven to burn up Samaria. In several legends about the activities of the Holy Apostles it is recorded how ‘fire from heaven’ destroyed cities that refused to succumb to them. In fact, Christ often threatened war and fire during his time on earth:
 I did not come to bring peace, but the sword.
 I have come to bring fire on the earth, and how I wish it were already kindled! ... Do you think I came to bring peace on earth? No, I tell you, but division.
 I have brought nothing into the world when I came, save this fire … for the purification of all the sins of the world.
 I have thrown fire upon the world, and look, I am watching till it blazes.
 Whoever is near me is near fire.

10. Marcion of Pontus declared Christ to be “the author of evils” and “to take delight in war”.

11.  In Barbelo I argue that Christ, Simon Magus and Paul of Tarsus were one and the same person. Paul was rightfully accused of being Josephus’ Egyptian, who led a rebel army of 4 000 ‘terrorists’ against the Romans (Josephus’ number is 30 000). In other words, even the New Testament inadvertently acknowledge that Paul (Christ) was a violent man. According to a specific version of the Toledot Yeshu, Christ had more than two thousand armed followers with him on the Mount of Olives.

12.  Hierocles claimed that after Christ had been banished (rejected) by the Jews, he and nine hundred of his followers had turned to robbery. The Talmud relates the story of two twin brothers, one of whom had become a robber, was caught and crucified on the cross. This is usually referred to as a  reference to Christ, and the Josippon likewise records that

  In those days there was much party strife and great disputes in Judaea between the Pharisees and the robbers in Israel who followed Jeshu’ah ben Pandera the Nasoraean, who did great miracles in Israel until the Pharisees overpower him and hanged him upon a pole.

 13.  A deposed ruler of a city sent a warning about Paul and Philip to a nearby town:

For they are sorcerers, and they have subverted my rule, and have wrought deeds of shame among my women, and scattered abroad my officers and soldiers, and overthrown my house, and plundered my city, and stolen my possessions, and blotted out my hope, and done away my goods, and destroyed my pasture, and they have made accusations against each other, and they have carried off my handmaidens.

14. Two vicious robbers were crucified with Christ, suggesting that they were all crucified for the same transgressions. Numerous other examples are listed in Barbelo.

To conclude, it is clear that numerous accusations of violence had been levelled against Christ and his disciples. If they had truly been the peace-loving, meek and tearful men the New Testament would have us believe, not one such an accusation should have been made. In fact, it is certain that many similar accusations must have been suppressed by the early church.

Gary Webb: In His Own Words (2002) | CIA Cocaine Dark Alliance
reelblack
Originally shared by Guerrilla News Network on archive.org. Creative Commons Gary Webb, the Pulitzer prize-winning reporter who broke the story of the CIAs involvement in the importation of cocaine into the U.S., died December 10, 2004, reportedly from self-inflicted gunshots to the head. It was a tragic end to a brilliant, and tragic, career. In August 1996, the San Jose Mercury News published Webbs 20,000 word, three-part series entitled Dark Alliance. The articles detailed the nexus between a California coke kingpin, CIA officials and assets and the Nicaraguan Contra army, whose funding had been cut off by an act of Congress in the mid-80s. Webb found evidence that the CIA had direct contact with the smugglers, knew the proceeds were going to fund the murderous Contras, and tried to cover it up when other law enforcement agencies began investigating. The most troubling aspect to the story was that the central player was no ordinary drug lord. He was the man many credit for popularizing crack, the highly addictive, smoke-able form of cocaine. For many African-Americans, the story smacked of a grand conspiracy to destroy the black community. There were rallies in Watts and Compton, and heated discussions on black media across the country. Members of the Congressional Black Caucus called for a federal investigation. In November 1996, CIA director John Deutch appeared at Locke High School in South Central Los Angeles to personally answer to the allegations. He was met with loud jeers. It was a PR disaster. But it was Webb who found himself on the ropes. Ironically, the CIA did little to publicly counter his allegations. Instead, the media did its dirty work for them, most notably the Los Angeles Times and the Washington Post. The mainstream media accused Webb of exaggerating his findings.

DOCUMENTARY | Gary Webb and the Dark Alliance
SierraKiloBravo
Gary Webb was an American investigative journalist who wrote a three-part series for the San Jose Mercury News in 1996 called Dark Alliance. The series was about connections between the Central Intelligence Agency, the U.S.-backed Contra army seeking to overthrow Nicaragua’s government, and cocaine trafficking into the United States. The articles sparked a public and congressional outcry that led to CIA and Department of Justice investigations of Webb’s claims.

By Donovan Webster
SMITHSONIANMAG.COM- JULY 5, 2017

In Roswell, New Mexico, exactly seven decades ago this month, the first little green men arrived. But we’re getting ahead of ourselves.
Let’s start closer to the beginning. On June 14, 1947, a rancher named W.W. “Mac” Brazel and his son Vernon were driving across their ranchland some 80 miles northwest of Roswell when they encountered something they’d never seen before. It was, in Brazel’s words, “a large area of bright wreckage made up of rubber strips, tinfoil, and rather tough paper, and sticks.”


Cory Goode …“... that way they keep you in a hole …  so the narrative coming out about the secret space program scares the *hit out of the Deep State …”
Ben Chasteen and Robert Counts: … interesting.. .
Cory Goode …“…because this is all of their secrets .. I came out not just talking about the secret space program …but I started talking about the slave trade … that’s what ticked them off the most …. that’s when they went after to throw me ….
Ben Chasteen and Robert Counts: … interesting.. . very interesting …so Bill Cooper who wrote “Beyond A Pale Horse” … in his book Bill Cooper he actually talked about how the ufology community .. is the most heavily infiltrated community there pretty much is ….
Cory Goode …“… this is .. if you have any community where people are gonna start popping up saying, ..Release that technology …its gonna come from this community … so
Cory Goode …“. so Bill Cooper who wrote “Beyond A Pale Horse” … in his book Bill Cooper he actually talked about how the ufology community .. so these types of people they have to keep divided … if we come together we are a danger …
Cory Goode …“… this is .. if you have any community where people are gonna start popping up saying, ..Release that technology …its gonna come from this community … so
Ben Chasteen and Robert Counts; and you know what’s really weird is that this whole conference in Hawaii really felt like that …. like a really excellent group of solid folks … of course it’s not only us but a really solid group in our community … and it has been so great to have that kind of talk shop with everyone … and kind of figure out how we can help more together and plan these things 

Disclosure Conferences
Cory Goode …“… you know there are other people do it too like James Gilliland ECETI - Enlightened Contact with Extraterrestrial Intelligence … Adrian Youngblood …
Cory Goode “... we have these huge conferences taken over by corporate and US Interests and other things … and it’s not what it used to be ..
Ben Chasteen and Robert Counts; … “.. yeah and sadly … it the people . the fans that have been affected by all this … that are seeing what is happening and they are getting confused and
Cory Goode …“… this is a love and light community and they don’t want to see any type of turmoil …. “
Ben Chasteen and Robert Counts; … “.. yeah… right …any at all …”
Cory Goode …“… so one of the biggest things is that in this field … you have the Rockefeller initiative and other groups that are kind of holding guard at the gate … if someone comes in like myself that’s rocking the boat,
.. then they just attack them …well about 99 percent of our community are pacifists … or they freeze up and they don’t have anything to do with conflict … unfortunately in their case …. I thrive on conflict … I was raised in conflict … so I can take it …   “
Ben Chasteen and Robert Counts; … “..that’s the spirit right there …but you just mentioned something really important which is corporate interests  … this is something that our community should really understand …so we found that whenever you’re actively researching something, there’s mainly two things you have to follow …   ”
1. You have to follow the people and the names
2. You have to follow the money
And on any of  these subjects .. or if anyone is confused as to what is going on …. I found that if you just follow the money I found that you can find out a lot of really new and interesting things … do you feel the same way or …? …”
Cory Goode …“…absolutely .. a lot of people have been doing a lot of their own research … and digging into different personalities in this field … just because this is a conspiracy community … so they want to know what the conspiracy is …

The Physical Appearances of Jesus and Paul
https://www.riaanbooysen.com/barbelo/physical-appearances-jesus-and-paul
WRITTEN ON 19 NOVEMBER 2014.
The Physical Appearances of Jesus and Paul

A key turning point in my research came when I was stunned by a remark in Colin Wilson’s Atlantis and the Kingdom of the Neanderthals:
The Romans issued a wanted poster for Jesus, which still survives, describing him as short (about four foot six), bald-headed, and hump-backed.
This description of Christ appears to match the description of Paul in the apocryphal The Acts of Paul and Thecla:
A man of small stature, with a bald head and crooked legs, in a good state of body, with eyebrows meeting and nose somewhat hooked.


Could Jesus and Paul have been the same person? One of the greatest mysteries associated with modern theories about Christ is—if accepting that he had survived his crucifixion—the question of what had become of him afterwards. If Christ had indeed survived his crucifixion, he would not have gone through such an ordeal only to vanish into obscurity. He could hardly have continued to be around as “Jesus”, since he was supposed to have been taken up into heaven forty days after his resurrection. In Barbelo it is shown that following his recovery from the crucifixion, Christ continued leading his revolution and building up his forces under the guise of the biblical Paul of Tarsus. Josephus knew him very well, but referred to him as the Egyptian who led a failed uprising against the Romans, an accusation brought against Paul during his final arrest.
Another great misconception about Christ is that he was a strikingly handsome and imposing figure, as typically depicted below. Nothing could be further from the truth.

The romantic image of Christ
In this article I will only point out the physical similarities between Paul and Christ, and some unique events that were common to both.
To begin with, in the Halosis of Josephus, Christ is described as

…a man of simple appearance, mature age, dark skin, small stature, three cubits high, hunchbacked, with a long face, long nose, and meeting eyebrows, so that they who see him might be affrighted, with scanty hair (but) having a line in the middle of the head after the fashion of the Nazireans, and with an undeveloped beard.
A similar description of Paul is given in The Acts of Paul and Thecla,
[Paul]…a man of small stature, with a bald head and crooked legs, in a good state of body, with eyebrows meeting and nose somewhat hooked.
 while another version of The Acts of Paul and Thecla reads
Quite small, bald-headed, bow-legged, with knees far apart, with meeting eyebrows, large eyes, a long nose and a red, florid face.

Pseudo-Chrysostom describes Paul as ‘the man of three cubits’ (4 feet 4.7 inches), matching the height of Christ as given in the Halosis of Josephus. 
The renowned scholar Robert Eisler recognises the resemblance between Christ and Paul:
A glance at the personal description of Paul already given shows at once that the tradition has come down to us in a form exactly corresponding to the one found in the iconismus (imagery) of Jesus,…This resemblance of Paul to Jesus …
However, despite a lengthy rationalisation, this intelligent man fails to consider the most logical of conclusions, that Christ and Paul of Tarsus must have been, or at least could have been, one and the same person.
I’ll next list additional physical descriptions of Christ and Paul as presented by the fathers and critics of the early church.

Of Christ …
1. According to Hierosolymitanus, as well as John of Damascus, ‘the Jew Josephus’ recorded that Christ ‘was seen having connate eyebrows, goodly eyes, long-faced, crooked, well-grown.
2.  Nicephorus Callistus also claims that Josephus had described Christ as having been  seven spans (5 feet 1.5 inches) tall, with beautiful eyes, a long nose, tawny hair, black eyebrows and his neck gently bent ‘so that the carriage of his body was not quite upright and rigid’, i.e. hunchbacked.
3.  In the hadith (sayings) of Muhammad, Christ is referred to as red-faced and of medium height, matching the accounts given above.
4.   In the Letter of Lentulus, Christ is described as being of medium height, with a ‘slightly reddish complexion’. He was ‘terrible in his reprimands’ and was never known to laugh.
 5. In a letter of certain bishops to the Emperor Theophilus, Christ’s height is described by the epithet tripechus (three cubits) which translates to a height of 1.34 m (4 feet 4.7 inches).
 6.   Tertullian, Celsus and the Acta Johannis Leucii all agree that Christ was below medium height.
 7.   Ephrem Syrus (320–379 CE) describes Christ as “God took human form and appeared in the form of three human ells; he came down to us small of stature.”
 8.  Zaccheus had to climb into a tree to see Christ, because he (Christ) was small and was being dwarfed by his followers.
 9.   Theodore of Mopsuhestia likewise records “Thy appearance, O Christ, was smaller than that of the children of Jacob.”
 10.  Tertullian describes Christ in very unflattering terms:
Let us compare with Scripture the rest of His dispensation. Whatever that poor despised body may be, because it was an object of touch and sight, it shall be my Christ, be He inglorious, be He ignoble, be He dishonoured; for such was it announced that He should be, both in bodily condition and aspect. Isaiah comes to our help again.…According to the same prophet, however, He is in bodily condition ‘a very worm, and no man; a reproach of men, and an outcast of the people.

As when they said, Whence has this man this wisdom and these mighty works? Thus spoke even they who despised His outward form. His body did not reach even to human beauty, to say nothing of heavenly glory. Had the prophets given us no information whatever concerning His ignoble appearance, His very sufferings and the very contumely He endured bespeak it all.
11.  According to Irenaeus, Christ was described as weak, unattractive and afflicted:
 Some of them, moreover—[when they predicted that] as a weak and inglorious man, and as one who knew what it was to bear infirmity.
12.  Celsus describes the physique of Christ as ‘little (small), ill-favoured (ugly, hideous), and ignoble (shameful, dishonourable, mean).’
13.  In The Acts of Peter we read:
 Him [Christ] who is great and quite small, comely and ugly: small for the ignorant, great to those who know him, comely to the understanding and ugly to the ignorant, youthful and aged…glorious but amongst us appearing lowly and ill-favoured.
14.   According to The Acts of John, John wrote of Christ:
He (Christ) appeared to me again as rather bald-headed but with a thick flowing beard.…But he sometimes appeared to me as a small man with no good looks.
15.  Saint Augustine states that Christ ‘appeared ugly (foedus, meaning ‘horrible, abominable’) to his persecutors.
16.  Tertullian, denying that the appearance of Christ had any beauty, goes as far as stating that: The ignominy of the face (of Jesus) would roar (as a witness against the heretics) if it could.
17.  In the Koran Christ is described as an ‘amazing thing’ brought forth by Mary.
18.  Mandaean and Gnostic texts describe Christ as ‘something that was created in the womb of Mary’ and an ‘amorphous substance’ that Sophia (a figure based on the life of Mary, Christ’s mother) had given birth to, causing her to grieve at the sight of its imperfection. In another text this birth is further described as ‘something came out of her that was imperfect and different in appearance from her, for she had produced it without her partner. It did not resemble its mother and was misshapen.’ Sophia later repented ‘with many tears’ the wickedness that had occurred and the robbery that her son had committed. Christ’s reign of terror is described in full in Barbelo (see also accompanying article The Violent Messiah). Paul would later described himself as ‘one abnormally born’ (1 Cor 15:8), matching the descriptions presented above.
19.  Christ anticipated that he would be taunted ‘Physician, heal yourself’ and at his crucifixion he was indeed taunted that while he saved others, he could not save himself. The statement about the physician healing himself suggests that Christ had to be healed, or in other words, he had a physical affliction or deformity of some kind.
20.  Christ no doubt attempted to use the messianic promise of Isaiah 53 to convince his simple-minded followers that he was indeed their promised Messiah. Isaiah 53 dictated step by step what he should do to qualify as the Messiah, including that he should die and rise again from the dead. More specifically, Isaiah’s Messiah had to comply with the description
He had no beauty or majesty to attract us to him, nothing in his appearance that we should desire him. He was despised and rejected by men, a man of sorrows and familiar with suffering. Like one from whom men hide their faces he was despised, and we esteemed him not.
which Christ evidently did.
Of Paul …
 21.  Paul admitted that he bore the marks (Greek stigmata) of Christ on his body. The word stigmata is the plural form of stigma, which refers to a mark incised or punched (for recognition of ownership) and actually denotes ‘a tattooed mark’ or ‘a mark burnt in, a brand.’ Although the stigmata in Galatians is usually interpreted as referring to the physical scarring Paul suffered following his conversion to Christianity, it more likely refers to the tattoos Christ had on his body as recorded in the Talmud.
22.  In The History of the Contending of Saint Paul, he is described as having a countenance that was ‘ruddy with the ruddiness of the skin of a pomegranate’, and his cheeks were full, and bearded, and of the colour of a rose, matching Christ’s reddish complexion.
23.  A description of Paul as recorded in The Passion of Paul reads:
And he was easily recognizable, having a crooked body, a black beard and a bald head.
24.  When Paul supposedly raised the deceased son of the Emperor as described in The Acts of Saint Peter, the ‘revived’ son told his father that he had seen men standing before the throne of God, petitioning on his behalf. With them ‘there was another man whose petition was bold, whose head was bald and shining, whose hair was red, and whose appearance was like unto that of Paul.’ The person who supposedly intercedes before God on behalf of the sinners is of course Jesus Christ himself.
Paul and Christ, the same person …
It is not only their physical appearances that match, but also their actions and legends about them:
 25.  Scholars have long identified Paul with Simon Magus, and in Barbelo it is shown that Christ and Simon Magus were one and the same person. Paul and Christ were therefore the same person.
26.  A remark in The Acts of Paul and Thecla, that Thecla ‘saw the Lord sitting in the form of Paul,’ suggests that they were indeed the same person.
27.  In The Acts of Saint Peter, John and Peter have doubts about Paul:
And I, Peter, held converse with my brother John secretly, for we were marvelling at the act of Paul, and wondering whether Simon the magician (having heard the rumour of us) had appeared unto us in the form of Paul…
 This remark in turn suggests that Simon Magus and Paul were the same person, thereby linking Simon Magus to Christ through Paul.
 28.  A sect called the Cathars maintained that ‘Jesus was not ever in this world except spiritually in the body of Paul.’ In other words, Jesus was Paul.
29.  Following Paul’s arrest, he was accused of being ‘the man who teaches all men everywhere against our people and our law and this place,’ and ‘who had brought Greeks into the temple area and had defiled that holy place.’ Christ was the one who turned Judea upside down with his teachings and who stormed the temple with 310 of his savages, robbing it of all its holy items.
30.  Paul was also accused of being the Egyptian who started a revolt and led four thousand terrorists into the wilderness. Several scholars have identified this Egyptian as Simon Magus, confirming that Christ, earlier identified as Simon Magus, was also the same person as Paul. Christ fed  four thousand of his followers in the desert.
31.  Felix and his wife Drusilla frequently sent for Paul to talk to him, while Simon Magus convinced Drusilla to marry Felix. Simon Magus and Paul are therefore linked to Felix and Drusilla in the same setting, confirming that they must have been one and the same person.

Given the evidence presented above, those with an open mind should come to only one conclusion, namely that Christ and Paul must have been one and the same person.

PART 1: Inspector General FISA Investigation President Trump - Senate Hearing
FOX 10 Phoenix
The U.S. attorney who is conducting a wide-ranging investigation of the origins of the Trump-Russia probe released a rare statement Monday saying he disagrees with conclusions of the so-called FISA report -- after DOJ Inspector General Michael Horowitz found in that review that the probe's launch largely complied with DOJ and FBI policies. “Based on the evidence collected to date, and while our investigation is ongoing, last month we advised the Inspector General that we do not agree with some of the report’s conclusions as to predication and how the FBI case was opened,” U.S. Attorney John Durham said in a statement. Horowitz released his report Monday saying his investigators found no intentional misconduct or political bias surrounding efforts to launch that 2016 probe and to seek a highly controversial Foreign Intelligence Surveillance Act (FISA) warrant to monitor former Trump campaign adviser Carter Page in the early months of the investigation. Still, it found that there were "significant concerns with how certain aspects of the investigation were conducted and supervised." “I have the utmost respect for the mission of the Office of Inspector General and the comprehensive work that went into the report prepared by Mr. Horowitz and his staff,” Durham said. “However, our investigation is not limited to developing information from within component parts of the Justice Department. Our investigation has included developing information from other persons and entities, both in the U.S. and outside of the U.S.” As Horowitz has conducted his review of DOJ actions during the Russia probe, Durham, the U.S. attorney for Connecticut, has also been conducting a wider inquiry into alleged misconduct and alleged improper government surveillance on the Trump campaign during the 2016 presidential election. Fox News reported in October that Durham's ongoing probe has transitioned into a full-fledged criminal investigation. Meanwhile, Attorney General William Barr ripped the FBI’s “intrusive” investigation after the release of Horowitz’s review, saying it was launched based on the “thinnest of suspicions.” “The Inspector General’s report now makes clear that the FBI launched an intrusive investigation of a U.S. presidential campaign on the thinnest of suspicions that, in my view, were insufficient to justify the steps taken,” Barr said in a statement. Barr expressed frustration that the FBI continued investigating the Trump campaign, even as “exculpatory” information came to the light.

Freeway Ricky on His Role in the Reagan Iran-Contra Drugs & Weapons Scandal
djvlad


Police helicopters ... it was like a party,,,  cars, people popping up out of cars ... it was a setup... 
Interviewer: Explain the whole Iran Contra thing ...and what your role and Blandone's role was in it was ...
Freeway Ricky: well my role was that Balndone would bring me drugs to sell to raise money for the Contras ... the Contras were backed by the CIA ... which was Ronald Regan and George Bush and Goerge Bush Senior was Papi ... they felt that if they lost Nicaragua
 They sold Drugs to Iran, and took the money and gave it to the Contra that Russia would be marching down the streets of the United States ... 
Interviewer: OK But where's the Iran part?
Freeway Ricky: Well they sold guns to Iran and took the money and gave it to the Contras 
Interviewer: But there selling drugs and allowing drugs t pass into America and using that mone and putting to the Contras as well..
  Freeway Ricky:   Yeh Yeh ... but the initial money cam from Iran.. because the US Contras said that they couldn't give the Contras any money ... so they had to get the money from a source that nobody would know about ... there is so much there ... you really have to do your homework ... you also had the hostages Iran that Ronald Regan was going to get a ruse because Ronald Regan was going to give Iran Weapons for the Hostages along with giving them some money ..
Interviewer: How much of this did you know about at the time...
  Freeway Ricky:  None... I learned all this while I was in jail...
  Interviewer:  So when you were selling drugs and s forth did it seem ...  
    Freeway Ricky: I didn't care about Iram or the Contras in Nicaragua .... none of that stuff .. I was just selling drugs to make some money ...
    Interviewer:   All this is happening and the CIA is overlooking this whole process..
.   Freeway Ricky: from what I understand ... I didn't see the CIA doing anything ... but they later came back and said we were watching them,,,, we were helping them,,
      Interviewer:   at a certain point did you ever think ... " I'm getting all this cocaine and no one's getting busted and people are getting away with such large shipments of illegal drugs being smuggled into the USA...weren't you thinking how is all this happening with no major busts and no major drug seizures ...


Former drug kingpin Freeway "Ricky" served nearly 15 years of what was originally a life sentence for his involvement in the Iran-Contra during the Reagan administration. After he was released from jail for a separate case, fellow drug lord Oscar Danilo Blandón reached out to him for one last job. At this point Ricky had stopped selling cocaine, but was asked to introduce Blandon to a deal, which ultimately turned out to be faulty. "People's head are popping up at out cars and it was a set up," Freeway Ricky says of the day he was arrested for his ties to the Contras. "I wanted a 20-year deal, and they offered me a plea where I plead guilty, and if the judge wanted to give me 20 she could. If she wanted to give me life, she could. I said 'Nah, I'll take my chance on appeal.'" It was this case that made Freeway Ricky teach himself to read and write. "I just started practicing reading everyday," he remembers. "Started reading law books and then one day I'm sitting there reading and the words that I needed - continuous criminal spree - popped out and I was like 'Oh wow, that's what I been needing [sic]." Watch above for more.

Freeway Ricky Recalls Being Sold $70,000 Worth of Cake Mix
djvlad
http://www.vladtv.com - It's not easy being a super powerful drug dealer - just ask Freeway Ricky. The former kingpin had to deal with massive losses throughout his life because of the substance he sold, but in the end he's chalked it all up to quite the learning experience. Freeway Ricky was taught how to cook crack-cocaine by one of his "big homies," a football player for San Jose State who he says is reminiscent of Tookie Williams. "Man, I got the next best thing," Ricky remembers the dealer telling him. "I got the thing that everybody's doing. Come by the house." Once he got there, his friend "laid out some cocaine on the table," and as we all know, the rest is history. During this clip Ricky also admitted to trying his product at one point. "When I got up to an ounce and thought I was rich, my friends who were using had convinced me that I was rich enough to have a party a cocaine party and a marijuana party," he recalled. "I had never smoked marijuana before, you know? I never drunk a beer, never smoked a cigarette, any of that. So I did for about a week straight and at the end of the week, not only was my throat stripped, but my wallet was broke. And I made a vow that I would never do it again." Watch on as Freeway Ricky details his drug deals with Nicaraguans, watching people become addicted to the drug, and being sold "$70,000 worth of cake mix" in a deal gone wrong in this engrossing exclusive.

Key Facts About the War on Drugs
https://www.thoughtco.com/key-facts-war-on-drugs-721148   

by Head   February 15, 2019
What Is the "War on Drugs?"

The "War on Drugs" is a general term used to refer to the federal government's attempts to end the import, manufacture, sale, and use of illegal drugs. It's a colloquial term that does not refer in any meaningful way to a specific policy or objective, but rather to a series of anti-drug initiatives that are vaguely directed towards the common goal of ending drug abuse,
Origin of the Phrase "War on Drugs"
President Dwight D. Eisenhower began what The New York Times then called "a new war on narcotic addiction at the local, national, and international level" with the establishment of an Interdepartmental Committee on Narcotics on November 27, 1954, which was responsible for coordinating executive branch anti-drug efforts. The phrase "War on Drugs" first came into common use after President Richard Nixon used it at a press conference on June 17, 1971, during which he described illegal drugs as "public enemy number one in the United States."
Chronology of Federal Anti-drug Policy
1914: The Harrison Narcotics Tax Act regulates the distribution of narcotics (heroin and other opiates). Federal law enforcement will later incorrectly classify cocaine, a central nervous system stimulant, as a "narcotic" and regulate it under the same legislation.
1937: The Marijuana Tax Act extends federal restrictions to cover marijuana.

1954: The Eisenhower administration takes a significant, albeit largely symbolic, step in establishing a U.S. Interdepartmental Committee on Narcotics.
1970: The Comprehensive Drug Abuse Prevention and Control Act of 1970 establishes federal anti-drug policy as we know it.

Human Cost of the War on Drugs
According to the Bureau of Justice Statistics, 55% of federal prisoners and 21% of state-level prisoners are incarcerated on the basis of drug-related offenses. This means that over a half million people are presently incarcerated as a result of anti-drug laws—more than the population of Wyoming. The illegal drug trade also sustains gang activity, and is indirectly responsible for an unknown number of homicides. (The FBI's Uniform Crime Reports describe 4% of homicides as being directly attributable to the illegal drug trade, but it plays an indirect role in a much larger percentage of homicides.)
Monetary Cost of the War on Drugs
According to the White House's National Drug Control Strategy Budgets, as cited in Action America's Drug War Cost Clock, the federal government alone is projected to spend over $22 billion on the War on Drugs in 2009. State spending totals are harder to isolate, but Action America cites a

1998 Columbia University study which found that states spent over $30 billion on drug law enforcement during that year.
Constitutionality of the War on Drugs
The federal government's authority to prosecute drug-related offenses theoretically stems from Article I's Commerce Clause, which grants Congress the authority to "regulate commerce with foreign nations, and among the several states, and with the Indian tribes"—but federal law enforcement targets drug offenders even when the illegal substance is manufactured and distributed only within state lines.
Public Opinion Regarding the War on Drugs
According to an October 2008 Zogby poll of likely voters, 76% describe the War on Drugs as a failure. In 2009, the Obama administration announced that it would no longer use the phrase "War on Drugs" to refer to federal anti-drug efforts, the first administration in 40 years not to do so.

​​“They’re going to kill me, ladies and gentlemen,” Milton William "Bill" Cooper told the audience. 
“Get ready for it, folks, because that’s what you’re going to be hearing in the next weeks and months on radio and television: Nothing will be the same after today….Because I’ll tell you, ladies and gentlemen, that’s what the people who really did this want you to think, that nothing, nothing, will be the same after today.
“And you know what? They’re right. They’re telling the truth about that. Within weeks the Congress will pass draconian legislation aimed at restricting the rights of American citizens. You’re going to have surveillance cameras on every street corner. You think your phones are being tapped now, just wait.
“No one is going to gain from this except a very small group of people. Everyone else will lose. No one will lose more than the American people.” This would be the most grievous casualty of the 9/11 attacks, Cooper told the audience, the nation itself, the America that could have been.
Freedom, the most elusive of qualities, best distilled in the inspired documents of the Constitution and the Bill of Rights, had been dealt a fatal blow: “From now on, freedom will be whatever the law allows you to do.”
That wasn’t going to stop him, Cooper told listeners. He’d stay behind his microphone up in his hilltop studio. He’d keep sending out The Hour of the Time, speaking truth to the ultimate power, if it was the last thing he did.
It was soon after that Cooper’s final prediction came true.
“They’re going to kill me, ladies and gentlemen,” he told the audience. “They’re going to come up here in the middle of the night, and shoot me dead, right on my doorstep.”
And, around midnight on November 5th, 2001, less than two months after the 9/11 attacks, that’s exactly what happened.

This information has been kept in topsecret government files since the 1940s. His audiences hear the truth unfold as he writes about the assassination of John F.

Early Life
Cooper was born in 1943 to United States Air Force Lieutenant Colonel Milton Vance Cooper (1922-2012) and his wife, Dovie Nell Cooper (née Woodside) (1923-2001).  

Milton William "Bill" Cooper   
Little is known about Cooper's background and education, beyond the information supplied in his own accounts. He claimed to have served in the United States Navy, the United States Air Force, and Naval Intelligence until his discharge in 1975;  however, public records only indicate a period of service in the Navy with a ratings code of E-5/Sergeant (Petty officer second class in the Navy), including a tour of duty in Vietnam with two service medals. He then attended a junior college in California, and worked for several technical and vocational schools before making his conspiracy theories known, beginning in 1988. Cooper expanded the speculations of earlier conspiracists by incorporating government involvement with extraterrestrials as a central theme. 

From 1992 until November 2001, broadcast his radio show, The Hour of the Time, via satellite hookups and shortwave frequencies from a studio in is house at 96 North Clearview Circle, atop a hill in the small White Mountains town of Eagar, Arizona, 15 miles from the New Mexico border. 

  Behold a Pale Horse  

Cooper produced and published Behold a Pale Horse in 1991. The book has been influential among "UFO and militia circles". Just prior to the trial of Terry Nichols in 1997, The Guardian described it as "the manifesto of the militia movement". 

According to sociologist Paul Gilroy, Cooper claimed "an elaborate conspiracy theory that encompasses the Kennedy assassination, the doings of the secret world government, the coming ice age, and a variety of other covert activities associated with the Illuminati's declaration of war upon the people of America".  Political scientist Michael Barkun characterized it as "among the most complex superconspiracy theories", and also among the most influential due to its popularity in militia circles as well as mainstream bookstores.  Historian Nicholas Goodrick-Clarke described the book as a "chaotic farrago of conspiracy myths interspersed with reprints of executive laws, official papers, reports and other extraneous materials designed to show the looming prospect of a world government imposed on the American people against their wishes and in flagrant contempt of the Constitution."

The Granddaddy of American Conspiracy Theorists

Decades before QAnon, false flags, “crisis actors” and Alex Jones, there was Milton William Cooper.

An exclusive excerpt from ‘Pale Horse Rider’

by  MARK JACOBSON 
https://www.rollingstone.com/politics/politics-features/william-cooper-conspiracy-theory-711469/ 

Even a broken clock is right twice a day; that’s what they say about people who are supposed to be crackpots. It’s the idea that there is a moment in time when even the most outlandish contention, the most eccentric point of view, the most unlikely person, somehow lines up with shifting reality to produce, however fleetingly, what many perceive to be the truth.
But to accept the notion of the “broken clock” is to embrace the established, rationalist parameters of time, 24 hours a day, day after day, years arranged in ascending numerical order, decade after decade, eon upon eon, a forever forward march to an undetermined future, world without end, amen.
For some people, people like the late Milton William (Bill) Cooper, collector of clocks, time did not work that way. American shortwave talk‐show host, author, and lecturer during the millennial period of the late 1980s onward to the advent of the current century, Bill Cooper chose not to adhere to the mandated linear passage of existence. For Cooper, the entire span of time — the beginning, the middle, and the end — was all equally important, but there could be no doubt where the clock had stopped. A minute to midnight, that was Bill Cooper’s time. 
This wasn’t because Cooper, a voracious reader and self‐schooled savant, was anti‐science or anti‐intellectual. He believed in evolution and, like his philosophical hero Aristotle, Cooper treasured the supremacy of knowledge and its acquisition. He had a massive collection of jazz records. But somewhere along the way, dating at least back to his service as river-boat captain in a hot zone during the Vietnam War, Cooper came to believe that something wasn’t right. What he’d always accepted as truth, what he was willing to give his life to protect, wasn’t true at all. It was part of a vast web of lies that stretched back through the centuries, contrived to rob the common man of his unalienable right to know the reality of his place on the planet. It was a deep-seated conviction that became an obsession — and a potent bridge to the current environment, where no one seems to believe anything they’re told, where long-respected bastions of truth are thought to be so corrupt as to be what Donald Trump calls “the enemy of the people.” The idea of “fake news,” along with personages like Alex Jones and QAnon (notably influenced by Cooper) are not unprecedented in American life. But none of them would have manifested as they have without Bill Cooper as an immediate predecessor.  

Cooper sought to dramatize the compounding urgency of the moment on The Hour of the Time, the radio program he broadcast from 1992 until November 2001, his resonant, sometimes folksy, sometimes fulminating voice filling the airwaves via satellite hookups and shortwave frequencies. Nearly every episode of The Hour of the Time began the same way, with the show’s singular opening, one of the most arresting sign‐ons in radio history. It starts with a blaring air‐raid siren, a blast in the night. This is followed by a loud, distorted electronic voice: “Lights out!” comes the command, as if issued from a penitentiary guard tower. “Lights out for The Hour of the Time!…Lights out for the curfew of your body, soul, and mind.” Dogs bark, people shriek, the bleat of the still half‐sleeping multitudes. There is the sound of tramping jackbooted feet, growing louder, closing in.

Now is the time, a minute to midnight, 60 seconds before enslavement, one last chance. Some citizens will rise, if only from not-quite‐yet‐atrophied muscle memory. They will shake themselves awake as their forebears once did at Lexington and Concord, heeding Paul Revere’s immortal call. They will defend their homes, families, and the last shreds of the tattered Constitution, the most close‐to‐perfect political document ever produced.

The vast majority, however, won’t even get out of bed. Some will cower under the covers, but most will simply roll over and go back to sleep. They slept through life, so why not sleep through death?

This is how it will be at a minute to midnight, according to Bill Cooper. At the End of Time, a broken clock is always right.

Reputed instances of Cooper’s prescience are legion. An early roundup of these forecasts can be found in the August 15th, 1990, edition of the newsletter of the Citizens Agency for Joint Intelligence (CAJI), an organization Cooper created, billing it as “the largest private intelligence‐gathering agency in the world.” Published on a dot-matrix printer, carrying the tagline “Information, not money, will be the power of the nineties,” Cooper ran an article entitled “Every Prediction Has Come True.” He listed 16 of his most recent prognostications that had come to pass “or will soon be fulfilled.”

These included the disclosure that “the CIA and the military are bringing drugs into the United States to finance their black projects.” Cooper also predicted that “the rape of the Savings and Loans by the CIA is only the tip of the iceberg. At least 600 banks will go under in the next two years.” The current monetary structure, Cooper said, “will be replaced by a cashless system that will allow the government to monitor our every action by computer. If you attempt to stay out of the system you will not be allowed to buy, sell, work, get medical care, or anything else we all take for granted.”

Cooper continued to make predictions in his watershed book, Behold a Pale Horse. Published in 1991 by Light Technology, a small New Age–oriented house then located in Sedona, Arizona, Behold a Pale Horse is something of a publishing miracle. With an initial press run of 3,500 (500 hardcover, 3,000 paperback), by the end of 2017, the book was closing in on 300,000 copies sold.
“Behold a Pale Horse is the biggest‐selling underground book of all time,” Cooper often told his audience. Yet sales figures represent only a fraction of the book’s true reach. For one thing, as its author often bragged, Behold a Pale Horse routinely topped lists of the most‐shoplifted books in the country. To this day, Barnes & Noble stores keep BAPH, as it is sometimes called, behind the cashier’s counter to reduce pilferage. This was because, as one clerk at the Barnes & Noble near my house in Brooklyn told me, “that book has a habit of walking out all by itself.” 
There is also the captive audience. Since its release, Behold a Pale Horse has been among the most popular “prison books” (in that prisoners read them), a distinction it shares with Robert Greene’s The 48 Laws of Power. During the crack epidemic of the 1990s, it was not unusual for a single copy of Behold a Pale Horse to go through enough hands in the cellblocks of places such as Attica to break the book’s spine.

Some of Cooper’s best‐known predictions appear in Behold a Pale Horse, which runs a densely typed 500 pages. Eight years before the Trench Coat Mafia murders at Columbine High School, Cooper wrote: “The sharp increase of prescriptions of psychoactive drugs like Prozac and Ritalin to younger and younger children will inevitably lead to a rash of horrific school shootings.” These incidents, he said, “will be used by elements of the federal government as an excuse to infringe upon the citizenry’s Second Amendment rights.”

For many, including those who would later claim that the seemingly endless series of school shootings were part of a plot by gun‐control advocates to take away America’s weapons, Cooper’s words took on the air of prophesy.
But Bill Cooper never claimed to be a prophet. He never imagined himself in the line of Ezekiel, Jeremiah, and Daniel, the ancient Hebrew seers carried off by King Nebuchadnezzar II to a 70‐year captivity in Babylon. Neither did Cooper compare himself to John, an exile on the island of Patmos, author of the Book of Revelation, which is where the title Behold a Pale Horse comes from. The phrase appears in chapter 6, verse 8, in which John is witness to the opening of the Seven Seals, the preview of God’s secret plan to once again destroy the world prior to its rebirth as the Kingdom of Jesus Christ.
When the Fourth Seal was revealed, John wrote, “And I looked, and behold a pale horse: and his name that sat on him was Death, and Hell followed with him.”

“I am no Prophet, I am no Nostradamus, I have no crystal ball,” Cooper proclaimed. He was “just an ordinary guy.” There was nothing supernatural about his predictions. Anyone could do it. It was all in the methodology, summed up in what he called his “standard admonition,” the one rule every prospective Hour of the Time listener had to obey, “no matter what.”
“You must not believe anything you hear on this show,” Cooper declared. Nor was the listener to believe anything they heard from any other shortwave host, “or Larry King Live, Dan Rather, George Bush, Bill Clinton, or anyone else in this entire world, whether you hear it on radio, on television, or from the lips of someone standing right in front of you.

“Listen to everyone, read everything, believe nothing until you, yourself, can prove it with your own research,” Cooper told the audience. “Only free‐thinking, intelligent people who are prepared to root through all the crap and get at the truth should be listening to this show. Everyone else should just turn off their radio. We don’t even want you to listen.
“Listen to everyone. Read everything, believe nothing . . . until you can prove to yourself whether it is true or false or lies between the many shades of gray. If you don’t do this, if you cannot do this, or are just plain too lazy to do this, then I can assure you that you will march into the New World Order as a docile slave.”

Then Cooper made the sound of a sheep. “Baaa! Baaa! Baaaing all the way.”
Cooper’s most famous prediction was made during the June 28th, 2001, broadcast of The Hour of the Time. A little past his 58th birthday and drinking heavily, Cooper was doing his program from a studio he’d built in the den of his house at 96 North Clearview Circle, atop a hill in the small White Mountains town of Eagar, Arizona, 15 miles from the New Mexico line.
“Can you believe what you have been seeing on CNN today, ladies and gentlemen?” Cooper asked the Hour of the Time audience that evening.
“Supposedly, a CNN reporter found Osama bin Laden, took a television camera crew with him, and interviewed him and his top leadership, lieutenants, and his colonels, and generals…in their hideout!
“Now don’t you think that’s kind of strange, folks?” Cooper asked with his signature chuckle. “Because the largest intelligence apparatus in the world, with the biggest budget in the history of world, has been looking for Osama bin Laden for years, and years, and years, and can’t find him!
“But some doofus jerk‐off reporter with his little camera crew waltzes right into his secret hideout and interviews him!”
This meant one of two things, Cooper told the audience. Either “everyone in the intelligence community and all the intelligence agencies of the United States government are blithering idiots and incompetent fools, or they’re lying to us.”

The fact was, Cooper told the audience, no one in the U.S. intelligence services was really looking for Osama bin Laden. They knew where he was. They had since the beginning of the Soviet invasion of Afghanistan. Bin Laden, along with his entire family, was a wholly owned subsidiary of the Central Intelligence Agency.
“They created him. They’re the ones funding him. They supported him to make their new utopian worlds…and he has served them well.” There were rumors floating around the mass media that bin Laden was planning attacks on the United States and Israel, but this was just subterfuge, Cooper said. “If Osama bin Laden is an enemy of Israel, don’t you think the Mossad would have taken care of that a long time ago?” Cooper asked.

Something else was in the wind. There was no other reason for the government to allow the CNN report but to further stamp bin Laden’s bearded, pointy face upon the collective American mind‐set. Bogeyman of the moment, the Saudi prince was being readied for his close‐up.


“I’m telling you to be prepared for a major attack!” Cooper declared. The target would be a large American city.
“Something terrible is going to happen in this country. And whatever is going to happen they’re going to blame on Osama bin Laden. Don’t you even believe it.”
Two and a half months later, on September 11th, 2001, after two commercial airliners flew into the Twin Towers of the World Trade Center in a cataclysm that killed 2,996 people, including 343 New York City Fire Department personnel, Cooper’s prediction came to pass.

By the time Cooper got on the air that morning, the towers had already fallen. Several hours passed before the name Osama bin Laden surfaced on the BBC feed Cooper was monitoring. The British station, which Cooper regarded as marginally more reliable than the American networks, was doing an interview with the former Israeli Prime Minister General Ehud Barak and Richard Perle, chairman of George W. Bush’s Defense Policy Board Advisory Committee.

Widely known as the Prince of Darkness, in part for his Reagan‐era support of Edward Teller’s $100 billion Strategic Defense Initiative, known as Star Wars, Perle said the attacks on New York and Washington were “clearly an act of war.”

“All our Western civilization is under attack,” Barak put in. The interviewer asked Perle if he thought the United States would be justified in firing cruise missiles at Kabul, the capital of Afghanistan. Perle, who along with fellow neocons Dick Cheney, Paul Wolfowitz, and Donald Rumsfeld would soon push hard for the reinvasion of Iraq, answered in the affirmative.

The Afghani authorities had “allowed Osama bin Laden to operate in their territory,” Perle said. That alone was reason enough for a military strike. Bin Laden was involved, no doubt about it. Yes, Barak agreed, there was “every reason to believe” bin Laden was behind the attack.

It was then Cooper interrupted the transmission, shouting, “How do they know who did it?
“If the United States government had no warning like they say, if they didn’t know who was going to mount these attacks, and there are no survivors from the people in these planes, how do they know Osama bin Laden is behind it?”

So, yet again, Cooper was right. Events were transpiring exactly as his research had indicated. Osama bin Laden, the Saudi mama’s‐boy prince, was about to be officially blamed for the most spectacular foreign attack on America since Pearl Harbor.

Not that Cooper was gloating about his latest successful prediction. What had happened in New York City — thousands dead, their bodies crushed beneath tons of twisted rubble, a toxic cloud rising over the metropolis — was just the beginning of a new torrent of death. On the radio feed, Perle and Barak were discussing logistics; Afghanistan would be a target, possibly, Iraq as well.
“How can they determine that they should bomb Afghanistan?” Cooper shouted with alarm. “Who are we going to be bombing? The terrorists, or the innocent people of Kabul?”
Cooper made another prediction. “Folks, I can assure you that 72 hours from now we will be at war. We will be bombing two or maybe three countries….Because that’s how it works. When governments are attacked, they lash out. Thousands of people who had nothing whatsoever to do with what is happening at the World Trade Center and the Pentagon are going to die.
“Nothing will be the same after today,” Cooper said grimly.

“Get ready for it, folks, because that’s what you’re going to be hearing in the next weeks and months on radio and television: Nothing will be the same after today….Because I’ll tell you, ladies and gentlemen, that’s what the people who really did this want you to think, that nothing, nothing, will be the same after today.
“And you know what? They’re right. They’re telling the truth about that. Within weeks the Congress will pass draconian legislation aimed at restricting the rights of American citizens. You’re going to have surveillance cameras on every street corner. You think your phones are being tapped now, just wait.
“No one is going to gain from this except a very small group of people. Everyone else will lose. No one will lose more than the American people.” This would be the most grievous casualty of the 9/11 attacks, Cooper told the audience, the nation itself, the America that could have been.

Freedom, the most elusive of qualities, best distilled in the inspired documents of the Constitution and the Bill of Rights, had been dealt a fatal blow: “From now on, freedom will be whatever the law allows you to do.”
That wasn’t going to stop him, Cooper told listeners. He’d stay behind his microphone up in his hilltop studio. He’d keep sending out The Hour of the Time, speaking truth to the ultimate power, if it was the last thing he did.
It was soon after that Cooper’s final prediction came true.
“They’re going to kill me, ladies and gentlemen,” he told the audience. “They’re going to come up here in the middle of the night, and shoot me dead, right on my doorstep.”
And, around midnight on November 5th, 2001, less than two months after the 9/11 attacks, that’s exactly what happened.

The Miracles of Jesus Christ

The Miracles of Jesus Christ


Extract from Barbelo – The Story of Jesus Christ, by Riaan Booysen

Christ claimed to be the Son of God and the only way in which he would have been able to prove his claim to divinity would have been by performing supernatural ‘miracles’. A ‘miracle’ is generally understood to be a case where physical matter instantaneously changes from one state to another through the mere command or desire (belief) of a person, or a force that can be exerted in a supernatural manner (moving objects without the application of physical force), and so on. Criticism against miracles is usually countered by the argument that, God, as the Almighty Creator, is omnipotent and able to do anything He desires.

Assuming for a moment that such a God, being a He, She, Them or It, does indeed exist, let’s take a look at ‘miracles’ from a practical angle. Let’s call them the Ferrari Gods, who exist in a heaven called Italy. They have just finished the design of their latest Formula One car and the first prototype has passed its test drive with flying colours. However, the test driver afterwards claims that he was able to fly to the moon with this new Ferrari. Would anyone believe him? Of course not. And could the Ferrari Gods themselves get into this Ferrari and fly to the moon? Of course not. They did not design it for that purpose. If they had wanted to fly to the moon, they would have designed a Space Shuttle instead.

So, what is my point? The Ferrari of the Creation (to use Christian terminology) is called ‘Physics’. Everything in the universe is subject to the Laws of Physics. Therefore, no ‘miracle’ that has ever been performed, either back then or today, by anyone, will survive the scrutiny of the Laws of Physics.

In Barbelo I argue that Christ was originally known as Simon Magus, which literally means Simon the Magician (see related article). Christ himself was also accused of being a magician, so, assuming that He had indeed performed ‘miracles’, how did he manage to do it? The answer is simple – he was an illusionist, no different from any illusionist we know today, and like any such deceptions, it merely required various degrees of preparation.

The Coin in the Fish
This is a dead giveaway. Whoever opened the mouth of the fish, either Peter or one of the other disciples, would have used the very first trick any aspiring illusionist has to master, which is to make an object appear as if from nowhere.

The Miraculous Fish Catch
The deception of the miraculous fish catch was most likely achieved by suspending underneath the boat a net filled long in advance with live fish or, if the lake was shallow enough, in a net lowered to the bottom of the lake. When Simon Peter cast his net into the water, it was simply allowed to sink to the bottom, after which the net filled with fish was hoisted up, and a ‘miracle’ was proclaimed.

Turning Water into Wine
A modern illusionist would probably perform this ‘miracle’ in the following manner. Someone makes a scene about there being no wine left (a planned shortage), ensuring that there are many witnesses to the event. The illusionist then orders what appears to be an arbitrary group of men (in this instance, the waiters) to fill the jars with water in clear view of all the witnesses. On their way to place the jars of water in an agreed location, those who carry the jars momentarily disappear from sight by, for example, moving through a group of people or passing behind an obstruction. The jars containing water are quickly switched for identical jars previously filled with wine. The unsuspecting witnesses hardly notice anything out of the ordinary, and, to their amazement, the water has been turned into wine.

Feeding Thousands
Christ had close ties with one of the richest families in Jerusalem, the Boethus family. He would, therefore, have had access to huge reserves of food, and the bread loaves and fish were simply concealed from view and then secretly passed on to the disciples, who distributed it among the masses.

  Walking on Water

In calm, shallow waters it would have been possible to walk on stepping stones laid just below the surface of the water, leading up to a previously determined point of rendezvous with Peter’s boat. Dusk would have been chosen to prevent the stepping stones from being spotted by the witnesses, and Christ would have been dressed in white to make him clearly visible. Peter also attempted the walk-on-water miracle but missed one of the stones and ended up in the water. No doubt the critics of Christ would have seen through the deception, and his followers subsequently had to introduce a raging storm and the subsequent calming of the sea after the walk on the water in an attempt to refute their allegations.

Faith Healing
 Probably the most controversial aspect of modern Christianity, the healing of various illnesses and diseases through faith, has changed little since the miracles performed by Christ. Those who are supposedly blind, lame, or deaf or who suffer extreme pain only need to lie for the miracle to be accomplished, but the healing of physical deformity and disability can practically only be achieved by making use of twins, one of which is afflicted. Such a pair would have been invaluable to any travelling magician in the time of Christ. There may be several reasons why anyone would participate in such fraud, but the two most prominent are: first, most likely to deliberately promote the cause of the ‘healer’ by his team, and second, doing so for money when outsiders are involved.

The Raising of Lazarus
The raising of the dead would be the Holy Grail of miracles, and is worth looking at in greater detail. The sisters Mary (Magdalene) and Martha sent word to Christ that Lazarus, ‘the one he loves,’ was sick, but when Christ eventually reached Bethany, their hometown, Lazarus had died and had already been buried for four days. Christ was met by Martha, but Mary ‘stayed at home.’ He comforted the mourning sisters and was ‘deeply moved in spirit and troubled’ and wept. Martha took Christ to the tomb, which was opened, and Christ promptly called for the deceased Lazarus to come out from the tomb. Lazarus obliged and emerged from the cave, still wrapped in linen and cloth. A hint at how Christ managed to ‘revive’ the deceased Lazarus is given in a text called The Secret Gospel of Mark in which the raising of Lazarus is briefly recounted. Curiously, though, it is stated that ‘a great cry was heard from the tomb’ before Christ and Martha opened the grave. There is, of course, no such thing as the revival of the dead, which leads one to suspect that this miracle must have been yet another of Christ’s deceptions.

The ‘miracle’ was most likely performed as follows: Lazarus either pretended to be sick or more likely was given something to make him appear sick. When he ‘died,’ he would have been given a drug to prevent him from making involuntary movements while family members and friends came to mourn him. Once he had been buried, he would have left the tomb secretly, and the body of a deceased person would have been placed inside. Just before the arrival of Christ, with much fanfare and numerous witnesses, Lazarus would have slipped into the tomb, waiting for Christ’s call to reappear. It would seem, however, that the young man completely underestimated the horror of being locked up in a confined space with a rotting corpse and eventually began screaming to be released. No doubt, both his sisters and Christ would have found Lazarus’s predicament hilarious, which probably accounts for Mary not leaving the house to meet Christ, as she must have struggled to control her laughter. Christ is recorded as having wept in sorrow, but one can imagine that he, too, could hardly contain himself, and that he had to clutch his face with both hands to conceal his true emotions. The tears streaming down his face and his shaking body would have been interpreted as intense sorrow by those who were unaware of the deception, but those tears would have been tears of laughter.

All the other instances of Christ reviving deceased persons can likewise be explained. The deceased and his or her family had to be involved in the deception right from the start, either as willing participants or having been paid to do so. Of particular interest is the raising of the deceased son of a widow who lived in Nain. In this instance the dead boy was being carried out of the city in a coffin, presumably to be buried, when Christ encountered the funeral procession. He touched the coffin and instructed the boy to sit up, which he promptly did. There can be no question that the boy had been anything but dead, and that his ‘death’ must have been well orchestrated to convince friends and family members that he had actually died. A widow in need would have been more than willing to participate in this deception, provided that the compensation was sufficient.

 "I Love Learning; I Hate School": An Anthropology of College Paperback – April 30, 2017
by Susan D. Blum (Author) 
https://www.amazon.com/Love-Learning-Hate-School-Anthropology/dp/1501713485 
Frustrated by her students’ performance, her relationships with them, and her own daughter’s problems in school, Susan D. Blum, a professor of anthropology, set out to understand why her students found their educational experience at a top-tier institution so profoundly difficult and unsatisfying. Through her research and in conversations with her students, she discovered a troubling mismatch between the goals of the university and the needs of students.
In "I Love Learning; I Hate School," Blum tells two intertwined but inseparable stories: the results of her research into how students learn contrasted with the way conventional education works, and the personal narrative of how she herself was transformed by this understanding. Blum concludes that the dominant forms of higher education do not match the myriad forms of learning that help students―people in general―master meaningful and worthwhile skills and knowledge. Students are capable of learning huge amounts, but the ways higher education is structured often leads them to fail to learn. More than that, it leads to ill effects. In this critique of higher education, infused with anthropological insights, Blum explains why so much is going wrong and offers suggestions for how to bring classroom learning more in line with appropriate forms of engagement. She challenges our system of educatio

In 1947, A High-Altitude Balloon Crash Landed in Roswell. The Aliens Never Left
Despite its persistence in popular culture, extraterrestrial life owes more to the imagination than reality

SMITHSONIANMAG.COM - ULY 5, 2017

In Roswell, New Mexico, exactly seven decades ago this month, the first little green men arrived. But we’re getting ahead of ourselves.
Let’s start closer to the beginning. On June 14, 1947, a rancher named W.W. “Mac” Brazel and his son Vernon were driving across their ranchland some 80 miles northwest of Roswell when they encountered something they’d never seen before. It was, in Brazel’s words, “a large area of bright wreckage made up of rubber strips, tinfoil, and rather tough paper, and sticks.”
The metallic-looking, lightweight fabric was scattered, shredded across the gravel and sagebrush of the New Mexico desert. Brazel didn’t know what to do with the newfound items, or how they had landed on the property, so on July 4 he collected all of the mysterious wreckage he could find. On July 7, he drove it all to Roswell, delivering the goods to Sheriff George Wilcox.

Wilcox, too, was confounded.
Seeking answers, he contacted Colonel “Butch” Blanchard, commander of the Roswell Army Airfield’s 509th Composite Group, located just outside of town. Blanchard was stymied. Working his way up the chain of command, he decided to contact his superior, General Roger W. Ramey, commander of the 8th Air Force in Fort Worth, Texas.
Blanchard also sent Major Jesse Marcel, an intelligence officer from the base, to investigate more thoroughly. Accompanied by the sheriff and Brazel, Marcel returned to the site and collected all of the “wreckage.” As they tried to ascertain what the materials were, Marcel chose to make a public statement. On July 8, Marcel’s comments ran in the local afternoon newspaper, the Roswell Daily Record, alongside a headline stating “RAAF Captures Flying Saucer on Ranch in Roswell.”
The body of the story contained a dramatic, memorable sentence: “The intelligence office of the 509th Bombardment Group at Roswell Army Air Field announced at noon today, that the field has come into the possession of a Flying Saucer.”
“Apparently, it was better from the Air Force’s perspective that there was a crashed ‘alien’ spacecraft out there than to tell the truth,” says Roger Launius, the recently-retired curator of space history at the Smithsonian’s National Air and Space Museum in Washington, D.C.
“A flying saucer was easier to admit than Project Mogul,” Launius adds, a chuckle in his voice. “And with that, we were off to the races.”
It was after the close of World War II, a time when nuclear weapons cast a long shadow. Truth-telling was not a priority, and there were remarkably unusual events underscoring the situation at hand.
Everywhere you looked in 1947, the global, social and political chessboard was being re-divided. The Soviet Union began to claim eastern European nations for itself in a new post-war vacuum. Voice of America started broadcasting in Russian to the eastern bloc, peddling the principles of American democracy. The U.S. sent V2 rockets carrying payloads of corn seeds and fruit flies into outer space. The Bulletin of Atomic Scientists set the “Doomsday Clock” ticking, and the Marshall Plan was in the making to rebuild war-torn Europe. Small wonder that in the heat of summer that year, flying saucers became all the rage.

On June 21, Navy Seaman Harold Dahl claimed to have seen six unidentified flying objects in the sky near Maury Island in Washington state’s Puget Sound. The next morning, Dahl said he was sought out and debriefed by “men in black.”
Three days after the Dahl sighting, an amateur pilot named Kenneth Arnold said he had spotted a flying saucer in the sky by Mount Rainer, Washington.
“UFOs aren’t unusual,” Launius says. “They’re simply unidentified things you see in the sky. We’ve all probably seen them. And, if you look long enough, you’ll probably eventually figure out what it is you’re looking at. It’s not extraterrestrials.”

By the end of 1947, mass hysteria had seized the global mindset, with more than 300 alleged “flying saucer” sightings in the last six months of that year alone.
“Not that there was ever any credible evidence to support the sightings,” Launius adds.
By early July 1947, Brazel had heard tales of flying saucers in the Pacific Northwest. These sightings spurred him to show his discovery to the authorities, but just one day after the Air Force announced it had come into possession of a flying saucer, Roswell’s morning newspaper debunked the story.
A published statement from the War Department in Washington claimed the debris collected on Brazel’s ranch was the remains of a weather balloon, and the Roswell Dispatch’s morning headline, “Army Debunks Roswell Flying Disc as World Simmers with Excitement,” set the tale to rest on July 9.
“But we need to back it up, here,” says Launius. “What was really going on was something called Project Mogul.”
In this classified program, the U.S. government launched high-altitude balloons into the ionosphere, hoping to monitor Russian nuclear tests. “The Russians wouldn’t get a nuclear weapon until 1949,” Launius adds. “But we didn’t know that in 1947.”
And, Launius adds, thanks to the new, horrifyingly powerful weapon and a changing geopolitical landscape, it was a time of paranoia.
Still, if the rumor of extraterrestrial visitors had been put to rest by the government, it didn’t die as easily in the public mind.
“But that was it, really,” says Launius. “The debate was over. It was to be the end of speculation. According to the government, the matter was closed. The debris was from a weather balloon.”        
Of course, though, that wasn’t the end.
There would be a 1948 report from the government about what was now being called the “Roswell Incident.” In 1950, Frank Scully, a reporter for Variety, wrote Behind the Flying Saucers, a book that detailed alien encounters from the Pacific Northwest to the towns of Aztec and Farmington, New Mexico, where aliens were now said to be landing their aircrafts in people’s backyards.

By then, enthusiasm for flying saucers had spread everywhere from Belgium to Russia and Japan. A rumor that had started as a convenient lie for the Air Force had become a distraction to the U.S. government, which was now deep into its nuclear weapons monitoring projects. “But there was no way the Air Force was going to admit what it was doing,” Launius says.
Project Mogul was conducted out of Washington, D.C. and the Los Alamos National Laboratory in New Mexico, with some high-altitude balloon launches taking place in the high desert near the state’s border with Texas.
Typically, a Project Mogul balloon sent into high altitude stretched 657 feet from tip to tail, 102 feet taller than the Washington Monument and twice as tall as the Statue of Liberty.
As balloons rode on the upper jet stream toward Russia, a long tail equipped with different types of sensing and listening devices trailed behind.
“But, obviously, something happened to this one balloon,” Launius says. “It came back to Earth and probably was spread across a wide area.”
Although much of the documentation about Project Mogul has now been declassified, Launius says that civilian access to information failed to stop the lure of extraterrestrial life.
Because the U.S. government was now in a frenzy of nuclear testing—both in the South Pacific and, later, at the Nevada Test Site—the hermetic silence around classified government programs left a certain segment of citizens suspicious. The UFO sightings continued.

“Then we get to the late 1970s and early 1980s,” Launius says. “And that period saw a real spike in extraterrestrial interest, from movies to books and other things.”
Movies such as Star Wars, Close Encounters of the Third Kind and ET, plus dozens of books on the subject, brought aliens to the forefront of the public mindset once again.
“By that time,” Launius says, “people’s imaginations had gotten the best of them.”
Suddenly, there were rumors of regular extraterrestrial life on Earth, not to mention crashed spaceships. There were now stories of two alien ships crashing in New Mexico in June 1947, scattering their contents and tiny green crewmen across the landscape. Before long, any secret government property—from nuclear sites to engineering locations—was suspected to house deceased or imprisoned aliens.
This was most evident at Area 51, an off-limits airstrip and aircraft engineering and development facility inside the Nevada Test Site, about 90 minutes north of Las Vegas. It was rumored that aliens from the Roswell spacecraft and other crashed ships were either being autopsied or slid into cylindrical glass tanks containing gel-like preservatives.

The government wasn’t helping to quell speculation, either. At their most secretive sites, they posted large, unambiguous “No Trespassing” signs, often with a reminder to those who entered illegally: “Use of Deadly Force Authorized.”
And the alien hysteria had gotten even wackier. By the early 1990s, with scant evidence to support it, a global UFO and extraterrestrial industry had come into existence. There were more movies. More books. More newspaper and magazine stories, more television news segments and shows focused on visitors from space.
In Roswell, the populace had been cashing in on the alien craze for some time. The town was home to the International UFO Museum and Research Center, and even a local Wal-Mart got into the spirit, decorating its walls and front windows with green-skinned, large-headed aliens. Roswell’s civic seal sports an artist rendering of an alien, and the exterior of the local McDonald’s in town has enough spacecraft-based accessories to look like a ship preparing to take off for some distant galaxy. Along the town’s Main Street, toy aliens, flying saucers and other extraterrestrial ephemera are sold in local shops.
Roger Launius has served as the chief historian of NASA and sat on several investigative panels discussing what might exist beyond Earth, but he seems more amused by the 70 years of hysteria surrounding the “Roswell Incident” than anything else.

“Well, all I really know,” he says, “is that UFOs are exactly that. They’re unidentified objects seen in the air. But that’s not extraterrestrials.”

Freeway Ricky: I've Had Days Where I've Made $3 Million
djvlad

Freeway Ricky moved over $900 million dollars in Cocaine which today's money in 2015  equivalent to over $2 Billion Dollars 

Getting delivery of 100 kilos of cocaine each day...
http://www.vladtv.com - Back in the day, Freeway Ricky ran with few men. Oscar Danilo Blandón was one of them as he handled all of Ricky's drugs, but before working with Blandón directly the two had a middle man they paid off pretty well to excuse himself out. According to Freeway Ricky, he and Blandón each paid him $60,000 each to do so. Ricky and his connect went on to work together for quite sometime, eventually taking each other to the next level of the business. "But me and Blandon we kinda hung out [and] we talked about business, so we developed kinda what I thought was a friendship as well," he continued. Further into the conversation Freeway Ricky went on to explain just how much he'd make in a day. "I've had days that I've made three million," he told DJ Vlad. "...The big customers come through - a couple of them - and they drop off two-hundred, three-hundred thousand dollars." Ricky went on to say even the men who sold on his corners were walking home with up to $100,000 in one day. How did he manage it all, you may wonder? "Well the first thing you gotta do [is] you have to be really humble in yourself and always look at situations from the other person's point of view," Freeway stated.

Gary Webb's investigative series, "Dark Alliance," gave Ruppert an opportunity to have his suspicions about the CIA heard.


It wasn’t long after FTW’s closure and Ruppert’s sojourn to Venezuela that director Chris Smith — the man behind documentaries American Movie and The Yes Men — contacted Ruppert to be interviewed for a film. The subject was supposed to be the CIA’s connections to drug smuggling, Smith told Indiewire. But Ruppert didn’t want to talk about the CIA. Instead, he wanted to talk about peak oil, and its critical implications for the future.

So Ruppert put a call out to his friends and thousands of Facebook followers. Jack Martin, a serial entrepreneur and self-described doomsday prepper, responded: his 1955 Spartan Royal Mansion — a classic, metallic silver camper — sat uninhabited on a rectangular, 2.5-acre property near the northern Napa Valley town of Calistoga. The trailer was humble, but it was Napa — surrounded by wineries, miles of open grassland, and the peaks of the Mayacamas Mountains. Ruppert accepted. Re intended to follow him there as soon as she could.

Ruppert arrived in February with his dog, Rags. A manicured garden and greenhouse sat on the property; Martin and his son grew and sold heirloom tomatoes and watermelons and peppers to local restaurants. They also heeded Ruppert’s warnings about the end of industrial civilization, developing the skills and means to grow their own food and fix their own machines.


By the second Sunday of April this year, Michael C. Ruppert was broke. The 63-year-old cop-turned-writer and firebrand gained fame by starring in Collapse, a 2009 documentary in which he predicts society’s destruction. Publicity from the film was great — he went on a countrywide promotional tour — but compensation had fizzled out. By April, he was receiving just a couple hundred dollars per month in royalties to supplement his meager Social Security checks.
In an effort to simplify his life, Ruppert had gradually sold, tossed out, or given away nearly all of his possessions, which included an arsenal of guns, countless books, and government documents. All that remained was a collection of sentimental knickknacks, along with clothes appropriate for a man in his 60s: button-up shirts, dark-colored slacks, a few flannels, a couple of L.L. Bean jackets, and a gray cowboy hat. Everything he owned fit into his burgundy 2000 Lincoln Continental.
For the last eight years, Ruppert had largely lived off the goodwill of friends and followers. When he made public requests for money — either through his weekly podcast, “The Lifeboat Hour,” or in posts to more than 5,000 Facebook followers — he received checks in the mail. When he needed a place to stay, people opened their homes. And it’s no surprise why: to subscribers of his elaborate theories — that the CIA trafficked drugs; that the Bush administration was behind the 9/11 attacks; or that the human race will face extinction by 2030 — Ruppert was a soldier who fought under the banner of truth. In exchange for exposing dark secrets, he was persecuted by authorities and shadowy organizations: he’d received death threats — both explicit and covert, he said — because he knew too much.
So when he made a plea for a place to stay early this year, a follower and friend named Jack Martin in Calistoga, California, offered up a modest trailer. That’s where, on the evening of April 13th, Ruppert committed suicide with a gunshot to the head. According to Ruppert’s friends, his suicide at first seemed sudden and unexpected — a brash decision during a dark moment. But looking back over his life and final days, Ruppert’s suicide resembles a grand finale — the end of a trail he’d been following for decades.
An only child, Ruppert’s family had close ties to the military and federal government. His father was a US Air Force pilot during the Second World War and later worked for Martin Marietta — which became Lockheed-Martin — "as a liaison between the CIA, the US Air Force, and Martin for booster programs," Ruppert wrote in a 2010 online autobiography.
Ruppert interviewed to be a CIA operative during his senior year at UCLA in 1973, he wrote, but turned down the subsequent offer. He became a cop with the Los Angeles Police Department (LAPD) and handled narcotics cases in some of the city’s most dangerous neighborhoods. The hours were long, and the job eventually got to him. He would later write that his work with the LAPD saddled him with "combat fatigue."
It was during his tenure at the LAPD that Ruppert met a woman named Nordica Theodora "Teddy" D’Orsay. Ruppert later wrote that their 15-month relationship "determined the course of my life…."
Teddy wasn’t a cop, but she and Ruppert met at a Marina del Rey cop bar in 1975. The two became infatuated with one another, and quickly moved in together. Early in their relationship, however, Ruppert became suspicious of Teddy. For a civilian, she was, he thought, a little too knowledgeable about guns and stakeouts and the day-to-day work of officers on a beat. She dropped names of LAPD cops as well as crime bosses and undercover agents.

When Teddy started staying out several nights per week and taking trips to San Francisco and Hawaii, Ruppert’s suspicions mounted. He treated Teddy as though she were a suspect in a crime. He gathered intel. It’s unclear what evidence he compiled, but Ruppert concluded that Teddy had ties to a San Francisco mobster and the shah of Iran. She grew even more distant. Then, in early 1977, she walked out on him.
After she left, Ruppert said, he became the victim of harassment: phone calls with dead silence on the other end; apartment searches while he was out; cars tailing him. He began sleeping with a gun under his pillow.

HE BECAME THE VICTIM OF HARASSMENT: PHONE CALLS WITH DEAD SILENCE ON THE OTHER END; APARTMENT SEARCHES WHILE HE WAS OUT; CARS TAILING HIM. HE BEGAN SLEEPING WITH A GUN UNDER HIS PILLOW

Ten weeks later, Teddy finally called Ruppert and said that she was in the New Orleans area. Ruppert drove to Louisiana and found her, he later wrote, "equipped with a scrambler phone and night-vision devices, and working from sealed communiqués delivered by Naval and Air Force personnel." He concluded that "she was involved in something truly ugly" — "arranging for large quantities of weapons to be loaded onto ships leaving for Iran." She was also working with "associates" of a New Orleans mafia boss bringing "large quantities of heroin into the city." Ruppert would later say that he and Teddy had even been shot at outside a New Orleans-area bar — retribution, he concluded, for discovering too much about Teddy’s covert actions. Ruppert broke off the relationship and returned home.
When he shared what he’d discovered with LAPD intelligence officers, they "promptly told me that I was crazy," he wrote. Overwhelmed, he checked himself into a psychiatric hospital for a "much-needed" monthlong rest. Though he was eventually reinstated as an officer, both his reputation and interest in the job vanished. In November 1978, he resigned. In time, Ruppert came to believe that the LAPD was part of a larger narco-trafficking network.
Through the press, Ruppert tried to expose what he’d discovered. In 1981, he made persistent calls to a Los Angeles Herald-Examiner columnist in an effort to expose Teddy’s trafficking network. The columnist ultimately published a two-part series, "The Spy Who Loved Me." But the series’ findings were, at best, inconclusive. It cited "a retired LAPD intelligence officer, another FBI agent, and [a psychiatrist]" who agreed that Ruppert’s story may have been "what he believes to be the truth," but that there was scant evidence to prove it. "Each of these three professionals professed both a measure of admiration and a measure of fear of Ruppert," the series read.
With paltry professional prospects, Ruppert drifted. He worked at a 7-Eleven, but was fired on his first day for selling alcohol to a minor. He declared bankruptcy and moved in with his parents. He developed a drinking problem. By 1984, he began attending Alcoholics Anonymous meetings and got sober. But he still struggled to find a new career. He told friends that he held a number of disparate jobs: as an amplifier assemblyman, a UPS driver, a gun shop clerk, a manager for a private security firm. In his spare time, he worked as a freelance writer — even landing a 1985 byline in the Los Angeles Times. In 1994, at the age of 43, Ruppert met a 23-year-old woman, Mary, at an AA meeting. The two got married — his first and only marriage — but divorced less than two years later. Distraught and aimless, he told Mary he was suicidal.

Then, Ruppert read a story that would change his life. It was a groundbreaking investigative report — a series of articles connecting the CIA to Nicaraguan drug runners. Published in August 1996 in the San Jose Mercury News, Gary Webb’s three-part series, "Dark Alliance," provided compelling evidence that drug traffickers peddled cocaine on Los Angeles streets to fund CIA-supported Contras embroiled in a Nicaraguan civil war. The series’ assertions — that CIA officials aligned themselves with criminals and "helped spark a crack explosion in urban America" — inspired protests in black communities nationwide.

HE WORKED AT A 7-ELEVEN, BUT WAS FIRED ON HIS FIRST DAY FOR SELLING ALCOHOL TO A MINOR. HE DECLARED BANKRUPTCY AND MOVED IN WITH HIS PARENTS. HE DEVELOPED A DRINKING PROBLEM
"Dark Alliance" drew harsh criticism for overreaching in its conclusions from several national outlets, including the New York Times. But that mattered little to Ruppert. In his eyes, Webb provided credible evidence that the CIA was involved in drug trafficking: "Dark Alliance" legitimized his accusations against Teddy, the CIA, and the LAPD.
The uproar over "Dark Alliance" was also an opportunity for Ruppert to have his suspicions heard. In November 1996, CIA director John M. Deutch agreed to address the allegations in Webb’s series during a town hall meeting at a high school in South Los Angeles. The interaction was broadcast by C-SPAN, and Ruppert seized the opportunity to step into the spotlight.
"I am a former Los Angeles police narcotics detective, and I worked South-Central Los Angeles," Ruppert said into a microphone during the Q&A session in front of the jam-packed, audibly agitated, mostly African-American crowd. In the video — now legendary among Ruppert’s fans — Ruppert looks like a high-school social studies teacher, with combed-over gray hair, a manicured mustache, and wire-rimmed glasses. "I will tell you, Director Deutch," Ruppert said, "emphatically and without equivocation that the agency has dealt drugs throughout this country for a long time."
"THAT’S WHAT I DID 18 YEARS AGO, AND I GOT SHOT AT FOR IT."
The audience erupted. When the din subsided, Deutch suggested that Ruppert report his findings to the authorities. "That’s what I did 18 years ago, and I got shot at for it," Ruppert said, referencing the alleged shooting incident with Teddy outside a New Orleans-area bar.
The crowd jeered Deutch. Ruppert looked on with a satisfied grin. In a matter of minutes, he had become a heroic figure battling the CIA, willing to stare down authority.
News of the confrontation spread, and Ruppert capitalized on the publicity. He started a muckraking, conspiratorial newsletter called From The Wilderness (FTW) that would eventually boast more than 22,000 subscribers. FTW reported on stories many mainstream news organizations overlooked. The organization dug deeper into CIA activities, reported Osama bin Laden’s ties with the American government in 1998, and broke a national story showing that then-Texas Governor George W. Bush routinely flew in an airplane once owned by drug smuggler Barry Seal. FTW obsessed over questionable government activities. This obsession led FTW to its biggest and most controversial story: the Bush administration’s involvement in the attacks of September 11th, 2001.
"As I watched the second plane strike the World Trade Center on September 11th, every part of me reacted," Ruppert would later write. Within hours of the attacks, Ruppert was on a radio show insinuating that 9/11 was an inside job. He became a forefather of the 9/11 Truth Movement — a loose contingent of activists speculating about the actual motives of the attackers and the government that day.

Ruppert mined websites, newspapers, and court records for evidence suggesting the Bush administration’s collusion in 9/11. The outcome was FTW’s defining article, "Oh Lucy! — You Gotta Lotta ‘Splainin To Do," an ongoing list of facts compiled from news stories, press conferences, and other disclosures. In Ruppert’s estimation, the piece "establishes CIA foreknowledge ... and strongly suggests that there was criminal complicity on the part of the US government." The list led Ruppert to publish his first book, 2004’s Crossing the Rubicon: The Decline of the American Empire at the End of the Age of Oil.

"THE US GOVERNMENT HAD DELIBERATELY LEAKED THE INFORMATION TO THE AL-QAEDA 'HIJACKERS' SO THAT THE ATTACKS COULD BE CARRIED OUT EFFECTIVELY."

At nearly 600 pages, not including endnotes and appendixes, Crossing the Rubicon is not a breezy read. But its core premise is fairly straightforward: the amount of oil available for human consumption peaked in the mid-’60s and has been quickly declining ever since (a concept known as "peak oil"). In order to reach the world’s precious remaining reserves, the US government was willing to perpetrate unthinkable acts.
According to Ruppert, then-Vice President Dick Cheney ignored warnings that hijacked planes might be used for terrorism in the US’ northeast corridor in the months leading up to September 11th. In May of that year, Cheney sent fighter planes from military bases in the northeastern US to Alaska. Ruppert concluded that the move was a calculated effort to leave the northeastern US vulnerable. Then, "the US government had deliberately leaked the information to the al-Qaeda ‘hijackers’ so that the attacks could be carried out effectively," Ruppert wrote. The ultimate goal: to start a war and secure unfettered access to Middle East oil.

Ruppert’s conclusions about 9/11 struck a nerve. His star rose, and FTW grew. Crossing the Rubicon became a cult hit. Ruppert was asked to give lectures all over the world, he said. By 2006, FTW supported Ruppert and a small staff in an office in Ashland, Oregon through sales of DVDs, donations, and an increasing number of subscriptions.
But soon thereafter, FTW imploded. The organization’s offices were vandalized in June 2006. Ruppert initially told readers the break-in was "the work of an organized meth ring that I prevented from infiltrating my business." Later, the implications became more sinister. Ruppert suggested the meth ring was connected to the CIA. Either way, Ruppert told staff, friends, and readers, his life was in danger. In July 2006, he fled to Caracas, Venezuela, where he planned to report about life under Venezuelan president Hugo Chávez Frias.

But he likely had more sordid reasons for fleeing. In the months prior to his departure, Ruppert had grown fond of a new female hire — according to court records, Ruppert "said he was ‘in love’ with [the female staffer] and told her he was willing to have a ‘sexual relationship … if that’s what she wanted.’" The staffer wasn’t interested. Rather, she "felt shocked and scared" by his advances. After Ruppert fired her in June 2006, she filed a sexual harassment lawsuit against FTW. Among the allegations:
One evening in mid-May when Complainant [the female staffer] and Ruppert were alone in the office, Ruppert began complaining that he had a story he needed to get out, that he needed to free himself, and that it would be great if he could just run around the office naked for a minute to get out his "writer’s block." Shortly afterward, Complainant was typing at her desk and Ruppert came to her open door, standing in his underwear in a "wide legged stance" with a "big smile."
Before he left for Venezuela, Ruppert made allegations to anyone who would listen — including a reporter at a local newspaper in Ashland — that the staffer was a "sexual smorgasbord who engaged in sexual blackmail" and that it was actually she who had burglarized FTW’s offices. He also accused her of "being a meth addict and facilitating the use of [his] office to smuggle meth." None of these assertions were ever supported by police findings. A judge fined FTW $125,000 in damages in the case. But by the time that decision was reached in 2009, FTW had long ago ceased operations. The fine remains unpaid.

Carolyn Baker, a frequent guest on Ruppert’s podcast "The Lifeboat Hour" and now the show’s host, shared many of Ruppert’s fundamental beliefs. But Baker told me she also noticed Ruppert’s pattern of fleeing difficult situations. "My thought was, ‘Why can’t you just put on your big-boy pants, and run a company?’" she told me on a Skype call last month. "He couldn’t run From The Wilderness — he had to leave. And who knows if his life was in danger? … My conclusion was that he couldn’t deal with conflict," Baker said. "Whenever things got really hot in terms of conflict for Mike, he was like, ‘I’m out of here.’"
After four months in Venezuela, Ruppert fled there, too. He said he had been poisoned — perhaps at the hands of government operatives. That may have been true (his friends told me he emerged from Venezuela very sick; Ruppert’s lawyer, Wes Miller, described him as "a total fucking mess"). But Baker offered an alternative explanation: after asking her and another colleague to take over FTW — and granting them access to more than $20,000 in the company’s bank account — Ruppert squandered the entire reserve. "He was out of money," Baker told me. "He was like a sieve with money."
Jenna Orkin, an FTW contributor, housed Ruppert in her Brooklyn home upon his arrival in late 2006. They became lovers, and Orkin helped Ruppert through psychiatric treatments at Bellevue Hospital in Manhattan for depression and suicidal thoughts. Orkin told me over the phone that Ruppert was adept at what she called "public relations" — bending stories to his interpretation of reality. Oftentimes, that interpretation didn’t conform with the real world.


Gary Webb — the journalist behind "Dark Alliance," the series that proved so pivotal in Ruppert’s evolution — said as much in an interview with the Boston Globe in 2003: "Mike is a real conundrum. I think he’s a sincere guy, concerned about the right things, and he was quite supportive of my efforts to expose the interplay between the CIA and drug traffickers. But he’s also written stories expounding a theory about the genesis of my Mercury News series that were, quite frankly, ridiculous."

The US Department of Justice had long ago come to a similar conclusion. After Ruppert’s public appearance at the town hall meeting with the director of the CIA, it sent investigators to meet with Ruppert and dig into his accusations about Teddy, the CIA, and the LAPD. The investigators concluded that "while Ruppert communicates his allegations fervently, they have no firm anchor in reality."

It wasn’t long after FTW’s closure and Ruppert’s sojourn to Venezuela that director Chris Smith — the man behind documentaries American Movie and The Yes Men — contacted Ruppert to be interviewed for a film. The subject was supposed to be the CIA’s connections to drug smuggling, Smith told Indiewire. But Ruppert didn’t want to talk about the CIA. Instead, he wanted to talk about peak oil, and its critical implications for the future.
Ruppert told Smith he’d become convinced that the places we live, the cars we drive, the products we buy, the food we consume — the habits that shape industrial human civilization — were leading to our demise. Smith was intrigued. The resulting interviews in late March and early April 2009 became Collapse, a dark, ominous documentary. The film compiled some of the most intriguing facts Ruppert had amassed during his career, along with some of his most dire predictions. Among them: the imminent end of human industrial civilization. Ruppert made "Michael Moore sound like Mr. Rogers," said one reviewer.

Collapse was well-received and brought Ruppert’s face and message to a wider audience. With his newfound notoriety, Ruppert and a few colleagues built CollapseNET— a reboot of FTW that focused squarely on peak oil and the end of human industrial civilization.

"HE WAS A SWEETHEART. HE SEEMED SO ANGRY AND MEAN. BUT THAT WASN’T HIM AT ALL. IT WAS HILARIOUS TO ME."
But again, Ruppert lost his footing. In 2012, he moved to Crestone, Colorado and divested from CollapseNET — a move driven by financial struggles, as well as his belief that "multiple ‘systemic’ failures in human civilization … cannot possibly be reversed in this world as it currently operates and approaches crises." By 2014, he had divested from pretty much everything else, too. Wes Miller — a lawyer and friend who represented Ruppert following the FTW sex harassment debacle, and then helped build CollapseNET — said the onetime hellraiser "didn’t want to fight anymore. He just wanted to do his thing, work on songwriting, and move on to a different life."
Ruppert started doing more with his band, a downtempo acoustic rock outfit called the New White Trash, and began studying Native American and indigenous teachings. He adopted the name "Tracker of Truth." Ruppert believed that by divesting from oil and eschewing environmentally harmful practices, humans could forestall extinction. He also spoke publicly about his belief that extraterrestrials were in communication with humans on Earth. Despite his gritted teeth and impassioned declarations about the end of human civilization by 2030 in Apocalypse, Man — the 2014 Vice documentary about him — Ruppert was shaking off his angry persona and settling into a kind of retirement.
"When I watch Apocalypse, Man, I just kinda laugh," says Jessy Re, Ruppert’s girlfriend at the end of his life. "I was there when he was filming it. And I just remember giggling a little bit because it’s like he was putting on a face — like, his game face. He wasn’t really like that. He was a sweetheart. He seemed so angry and mean. But that wasn’t him at all. It was hilarious to me."

Re told me that she and Ruppert met while she was working as a bartender in Crestone, Colorado in July 2012. Their relationship began slowly, but they spoke on the phone daily and eventually became lovers. One day in February of this year, Ruppert told Re that he had to leave Colorado; the Rocky Mountain winter, he said, was kicking his ass.
So Ruppert put a call out to his friends and thousands of Facebook followers. Jack Martin, a serial entrepreneur and self-described doomsday prepper, responded: his 1955 Spartan Royal Mansion — a classic, metallic silver camper — sat uninhabited on a rectangular, 2.5-acre property near the northern Napa Valley town of Calistoga. The trailer was humble, but it was Napa — surrounded by wineries, miles of open grassland, and the peaks of the Mayacamas Mountains. Ruppert accepted. Re intended to follow him there as soon as she could.
Ruppert arrived in February with his dog, Rags. A manicured garden and greenhouse sat on the property; Martin and his son grew and sold heirloom tomatoes and watermelons and peppers to local restaurants. They also heeded Ruppert’s warnings about the end of industrial civilization, developing the skills and means to grow their own food and fix their own machines.
Ruppert seemed inspired living on Martin’s land. During his two months there, he roamed the property: a flat plot with a long, dirt driveway, stocked at its southeast end with tractors and old cars and a 6,000 square foot warehouse where a blacksmith and three other tradesman rented space. On his walks, Ruppert smoked Natural American Spirit cigarettes and chatted with whoever crossed his path. The Martins and their friends became his friends. Photographs from Calistoga show Ruppert standing amid Napa Valley greenery, his face and arms reddened by the Northern California sun, his trimmed gray mustache and soul patch surrounding a smile.
But inside, Ruppert battled depression. It sometimes emerged in conversation. And it certainly emerged in his final podcast.
Just as he had every Sunday evening at 6PM for years, Ruppert sat at his desk on April 13th and began recording "The Lifeboat Hour." "Hello everybody, from that nightclub at the end of the world," he said over music from the New White Trash. After introducing Carolyn Baker, a regular guest, and lamenting yet another environmental disaster in the news, Ruppert got personal.
A week earlier, a production company filming a presentation for the channel H2 flew Ruppert to the Seattle area for on-camera interviews. Ruppert thought the opportunity would be perfect — a means to re-legitimize himself in the mainstream five years after Collapse. Instead, he was disappointed. The first-class treatment, the attention, and the people he encountered made him feel hollow. "It was a daunting experience," he told his podcast listeners — like "I was in the Matrix." Everyone he encountered was "going through the motions of what they do in their life."

"THERE’S A LEADENNESS OUT THERE IN THE WORLD RIGHT NOW THAT WEIGHS ON US LIKE A BLANKET."
In the airport, waiting for his flight home, "I didn’t see a smile anywhere," he said. "Everybody looked gray, they looked dead, they looked like robots, like they were going through motions…. My perception was that the reality of the collapse of human industrial civilization — or the reality of their reality — is disintegrating in front of everybody." Later, he said, "There’s a leadenness out there in the world right now that weighs on us like a blanket."
At 7PM, Ruppert said goodbye to his guests, completing "The Lifeboat Hour." He spent some time on Facebook. He "liked" a shared post from a friend. A guest on his podcast wrote, "Michael, thank you for your show tonight, friend. Thank you. Your light illuminates the night sky." He liked that, too. For a half-hour, he sat at the computer; the monitor’s glow shining through the trailer windows as the sun set. Re, who had been living with him since April, was on a road trip in Oregon. Martin and his son were away. Soon, the blacksmith who rented a garage on the property got into his truck and drove off down Martin’s bumpy dirt driveway. By 7:30, Ruppert was alone.
At 7:34 PM, in a Facebook post to his friends and followers, Ruppert wrote: "The Truth awaits just on the other side of the ever dissolving veil where all the screaming and the mess is going on." A minute later, he sent an email to close friends. "This is my final offering," he wrote. "I do it for the children so that they might live."
At 7:45, Ruppert sent an email to Martin. The subject: "Come back to the property right now — urgent." The email began, "Call the sheriff before you come." It ended: "Best not to go to the blue and white GMC unless the sheriffs are with you."
Ruppert walked to the trailer closet and retrieved the only gun he’d brought with him to Calistoga — a .45 caliber GLOCK G30 Subcompact Pistol. Ruppert used clear packing tape to hang instructive notes — "LET THE SHERIFF GO IN FIRST! DON’T TOUCH ANYTHING" — next to the mobile home’s entrance. He stepped out of the trailer and walked about a hundred feet toward the GMC truck. He stood in front of it, with his back to the truck and the mountains. He placed the barrel of the gun to his right temple. A shot rang out in the valley.

Apart from private emails he sent to friends and Jessy Re, and his final Facebook post, Ruppert wrote a suicide note and taped it next to the door of Martin’s trailer. Written in upper-case block lettering, the note read:

A FINAL OFFERING OF FLESH FOR THE CHILDREN ABOUT ALL I HAVE LEFT TO GIVE
MAY IT RELEASE LOVE + LIGHT INTO A WORLD DYING IN DARKNESS


He signed it "Tracker of Truth," before adding a last line, written in lowercase letters, seemingly an afterthought: "There is no more time."
Ruppert’s suicide notes were designed to make it clear that he’d committed suicide and not been killed by CIA operatives or anyone else. Though a few online conspiracy theorists initially speculated that he’d been assassinated, those rumors soon evaporated.


Ruppert’s friends dismiss the notion that he killed himself as "a final offering of flesh" in preparation for end times. Instead, they told me that suicide was a preoccupation for Ruppert — an impulse that emerged whenever prospects seemed bleak. Cheri Roberts, a Ruppert acquaintance and independent journalist who investigated his suicide before anyone else, said that he saw a kind of dark dignity in suicide; he harbored "suicidal ideations," she wrote. In 2004, when Gary Webb — the author of the "Dark Alliance" series — was found dead with two gunshot wounds in his head, Ruppert went to Webb’s home in Sacramento to investigate and then dispel rumors that Webb had been killed by CIA operatives. Ruppert kept a photograph of the deceased journalist hung on the wall of his FTW office.

"THERE IS NO MORE TIME."
Ruppert talked of suicide so frequently, in fact, that some of the people closest to him dismissed the comments as meaningless. When Ruppert’s ex-wife, Mary — who asked that her last name be withheld from this story — asked Ruppert to sign divorce papers in 1996, Ruppert told her that the mere thought of divorcing her made him want to kill himself. "I just didn’t believe he was serious," Mary told me. "I thought he was trying to manipulate me. So I told him, ‘Sign the papers first.’"
The thought of Ruppert actually carrying out his own suicide still baffles her. She remembers him as driven toward exposing government corruption and obsessing over his work. But she never took his more recent end-of-the-world doomsaying very seriously. "I thought it was his schtick," she told me. "I thought it was something he did for the cameras."
Wes Miller, Ruppert’s lawyer, casts aside suggestions that Ruppert was bipolar, or that his mental illness, coupled with his decision to start drinking again, might’ve pushed him to suicide. But many of Ruppert’s friends are more open to those ideas. "I never confronted him with one of the main aspects of his emotional turmoil," Carolyn Baker told me, "which was that he left AA in 2004 and told people that his sponsor told him that he was so advanced that he didn’t need to go to meetings anymore." She continued: "Anyone who confronted him about that was pretty much cut out of his life."
Doug Lewis, Ruppert’s close friend, Colorado roommate, and bandmate in New White Trash, declined to be interviewed for this story. But Baker told me: "About two weeks before Mike left Colorado to come out to California [in February], Doug confronted him and said, ‘Mike you’re an alcoholic.’ And Mike grabbed Doug by the collar and slammed him against the wall and cursed him out. A week later, [Ruppert] gave notice that ‘I’m leaving.’"
By the end, Ruppert had gone into "full-blown psychosis," the journalist Cheri Roberts told me. He wanted to take his own life, decided he was going to do it, and "he wasn’t going to let anyone argue with him about it."
Ruppert’s cousin, Sherry Colliton, came to similar conclusions. When he began selling off his possessions in 2012, he told her he was purging himself of unnecessary baggage. But Colliton now believes he was making final plans. Ruppert moved at least five times between 2006 and his last days in Calistoga. In each new place, with each new roommate or landlord, he set up a revised will, and named a new executor to that will.

HE WANTED TO TAKE HIS OWN LIFE, DECIDED HE WAS GOING TO DO IT, AND "HE WASN’T GOING TO LET ANYONE ARGUE WITH HIM ABOUT IT."
In Calistoga, Jack Martin became Ruppert’s final executor.

But Jesse Re, his girlfriend at the end, was the person he was closest to.
Last month, I met Re in the South Portland, Oregon suburb of Lake Oswego, where she’s staying in a bunkhouse behind the rental property where Wes Miller, his wife, and their two kids reside. Calm and thoughtful, Re smiles often and frequently punctuates her sentences with laughter. She now cares for Ruppert’s dog, Rags, and is still unabashedly in love with the man: she told me they were "soulmates" and "meant to be together." Ruppert, she told me, inspired her to try anything, to think about things in new ways. (Though she has no background in journalism, she and Wes Miller are attempting to revitalize CollapseNET as TrackerOfTruth.com, with Re as the site’s star and lead reporter.) That’s why she was willing to uproot her life in Colorado to live with Ruppert in Calistoga merely two weeks before he killed himself.
Ruppert didn’t seem suicidal to Re; he didn’t seem like a doomsayer. On the contrary, she described him as "deeply spiritual" — a "fun and cool" person to be with. Maybe she saw Ruppert the way he wanted to be seen at the very end — not as a warrior, but as a man who had settled his scores; a man who had served his purpose and had found a reason to live and love.
But on April 11th, two days before his suicide, Ruppert pulled Re aside for a private conversation at the picnic table near the Calistoga mobile home where they stayed.
"He said, ‘I gotta come clean with you about something,’" she remembered. "He told me he was terrified of the state of the world and that he felt like all kinds of people were coming to him for answers and that he didn’t have any. And that he just wanted to let me know where his head was at. Then we talked a little bit more. He talked about near-term extinction and that he felt like things were not headed in a happy direction. He was like, ‘What’s the point?’

"When he said that to me, I told him it reminded me of this line from a Bob Dylan song" — that he not busy being born is busy dying. "Wouldn’t it suck if all 7 billion of us had to go out as though we’d never even been born?
"Later, we sat there and said a prayer together. He told me, ‘I feel a lot better. I’m glad we talked.’ I think back on that, and I think, ‘Maybe he still had hope.’ But that’s not what he was telling me. What he was telling me was that he was done. He was leaving forever. He was just letting me know in that moment that he didn’t have hope."

Joseph, Joseph of Arimathea, and Josephus

Joseph, Joseph of Arimathea, and Josephus

When Barbelo was initially reviewed before publication, one of the comments I received was that the number of Josephs in the book was actually a bit bewildering – Joseph, the father of Christ, Joseph, Herod’s treasurer, Joseph (Joses), the brother of Christ, Joseph Barnabas, Joseph Justus Barsabbas, Joseph of Arimathea and last but not least, Josephus, the Jewish historian. The prime focus of my investigation into the historicity of Christ was of course Joseph, his father, who was known as the Old Man (Sabbas) of Judea and died aged 111 years. He was a highly visible public figure, so one would expect Josephus to have mentioned him somewhere in his works, if not Joseph as Herod’s treasurer. Curiously, the author of what appears to be an early version of Josephus’ Wars, a document called The Wonderful and Most Deplorable History of the Latter Times of the Jews: with the Destruction of the City of Jerusalem which History Begins where the Holy Scriptures End, calls himself Joseph ben Gorion. This author of this book is believed to be an Italian Jew who lived in the ninth century or later and falsely professed to be the original Josephus, and he has become known amongst scholars as Joseppon, Josippon, and Pseudo-Josephus. 

A careful reading of the Josippon reveals some information that could only have been known to the real Josephus, and it is actually quite absurd to think that anyone would falsely claim to be this Josephus 800 years later. The most logical conclusion is that the Josippon is merely an early copy of Josephus’ work, which he later expanded to become the version we have today. The obvious question then is, of course, why the real Josephus (ben Matthias) would originally have called himself Josephus ben Gorion. Although the name Gorion (Gurion) is mentioned in the Talmud, its meaning is not immediately obvious. It does, however, appear to be a distorted form of the Greek word geron, which means ‘an old man’ (the Jews often had a Hebrew name as well as a foreign name). If Josephus ben Gorion means Joseph, son of the Old Man, it would immediately suggest that Josephus was in fact called Josephus bar Sabbas, which would make him a half-brother of Christ.

Josephus’ genealogy is shown in Table 1 below (see Barbelo Table 2.2 for details).

Person                            Year of birth

Simon Psellus                 Unknown

Matthias Ephlias              Unknown

Matthias Curtus               134 BCE

Joseph                             68–67 BCE

Matthias                           5–6 CE

Josephus                         37 CE

 Table 1. The genealogy of Josephus


A curious inconsistency in Josephus’s lineage is that he refers to Simon Psellus as his great-grandfather, who, strictly speaking, should be Matthias Curtus. Nevertheless, there is a Joseph in this list, the one who was born around 68-67 BCE. Could this be ‘Sabbas’, the Old Man?

 This brings us to a man known as Joseph of Arimathea (spelled Arimathaias in Greek), ‘a secret disciple of Christ but also a rich and prominent member of the council and a good and upright man.’ This is the Joseph who boldly asked Pontius Pilate, the procurator of Judea, for Christ’s body after the Crucifixion and placed it in his own, newly cut tomb in a garden at the place where Christ was crucified (according to the itinerary of the anonymous Pilgrim of Bordeaux, the tomb of Joseph of Arimathea was ‘about a stone’s throw’ away from the place of the Crucifixion). In the apocryphal The Gospel of Peter, this garden is in fact called the Garden of Joseph.

Following Luke, it is commonly assumed that Arimathea was a town of Judea, but no town of that name has been identified as yet. Eisler speculates that he may indeed have been Josephus the historian (as Joseph bar Mattathia), who claimed to be the son of a renowned man called Matthias. A closer look at the construction of the name Arimathaias suggests that the name refers to a person and not a place. The Greek word ara means ‘a prayer’ or ‘a curse,’ suggesting that the name simply means ‘the Cursed Mathaias,’ assuming that Matthias is just a variant spelling of Mathaias. Joseph of Arimathaias then becomes Joseph, the son of the cursed Mathaias. This Mathaias must have been a public figure in order for him to have earned such a nickname. As is evident throughout Barbelo, Mathaias would have had every reason to consider himself cursed: he was the father of Joseph, the man who seduced Mary into a new religion and became the father of Jesus Christ, the most hated man in the history of the Jews. And the father of the Joseph in Josephus’ lineage was indeed called Matthias.

We next consider other evidence in support of the above hypotheses.

The reason why Josephus had changed his surname from ‘son of the Old Man’ to ‘son of Matthias’ must certainly be that everyone knew who the Old Man was, and what his son had done to Judea. Justus of Tiberias had, for example, accused Josephus of having been one of the instigators (along with the Galileans) of ‘that sedition which your country engaged in, both against the Romans and against the king.’ Christ was known as the Galilean and it was his movement that revolted against the Romans and the king they had appointed over Judea. I suspect that a young Josephus had initially become involved with Christ’s uprising against the Romans, but quickly turned his back on him when he witnessed the horrific methods Christ employed to gather support amongst the common (poor) people. He subsequently had to distance himself from ‘the Old Man’ as quickly and as far as possible. 

 One may ask who Matthias might have been, if not Josephus’ real father. Matthias was most likely an older son of Joseph by his first wife, the one who would later become Matthew, one of the disciples of Christ. He could very well have acted as a father figure to the young Josephus, hence the switch from ‘ben Gorion’ to ‘ben Matthias’ (and not just any other name).

Joseph of Arimathea was assisted by another secretive disciple, Nicodemus. He is widely believed to be the person known as Nakdimon ben Gorion (Gurion) in the Talmud. If Joseph of Arimathea was indeed Joseph the Old Man, this Nicodemus would have been a son of Joseph (Gorion), most likely by his first wife, and he would probably have been only a half-brother of Josephus, not his brother.  

Possibly the most compelling evidence that the Joseph in Josephus’ genealogy must have been the same person as Joseph of Arimathea, are the dates recorded for his death. In The History of that Holy Disciple Joseph of Arimathea, it is claimed that on Joseph’s tombstone in Glastonbury, Britain, it was recorded ‘He died 45 AD, aged 86.’ The Joseph in Josephus’ table was born in 67 BCE, which would have made him, as Joseph of Arimathea, 67+45=112 years old, which is the same as 111 years taking rounding errors into account. In Barbelo it is argued that Christ was crucified around 21 CE, and that Joseph (of Arimathea) immediately afterwards took Christ as well as some of the women close to him to the British Isles, for Christ to recover from his crucifixion ordeal.

It is certain that once rumours started going around that Christ had risen from the grave, the Roman and Jewish authorities would have wanted to question one man only—Joseph of Arimathea, who undertook to bury Christ after his crucifixion. Some legends of that period claim that Joseph of Arimathea had been arrested and locked up but managed to escape, and that many years later he was sent by Philip to Britain, along with Mary Magdalene, Martha, and Lazarus. However, the four great church councils of Pisa, Constance, Sienna, and Basle all agreed that Joseph of Arimathea arrived in Britain ‘immediately after the passion of Christ.’ Joseph would then have been 67+21=88 years old (please note error in Barbelo, not ‘86’), and his disappearance would probably have been interpreted as his death at the hands of the authorities. However, those who went with him would have known that Joseph, the father of Christ, died when he was 111 years old.

In legends from the British Isles, Joseph of Arimathea is recorded as having had a son called Josephes, which is essentially identical to the name Josephus.

In Josippon its author (Josephus ben Gorion) claims that his 130-year-old father Gorion had been locked away in a prison called the Turret. In his Wars, Josephus likewise relates that his father had been kept in prison, and in The Life of James the Less it is recorded that when Titus entered Jerusalem, he freed Joseph of Arimathea from a hole in a thick wall wherein the Jews had shut him up following the crucifixion of Christ. The siege and destruction of Jerusalem occurred in 70 CE, by which time Josephus’ Joseph would have been 67+70=137 years old, which is close to the 130 years he recorded in the Josippon. It would seem that Josephus actually believed that his famously old father might still have been alive at the time. If Matthias had indeed been his father, Matthias would have been about 65 years old, nowhere near 130. It is also confirmed that “the Old Man” and Joseph of Arimathea were one and the same person.

A crucial question is how it would have been possible to stage a crucifixion right under the noses of the Roman authorities, meaning that Christ had been crucified, but removed from the cross before he died. In the Talmud it is recorded that Christ was ‘connected to the government’, and in The Gospel of Peter that Joseph of Arimathea was a friend of Pilate. Furthermore, Christ also convinced a Roman centurion to participate in one of his ‘miracles’, and if Joseph of Arimathea was actually Christ’s biological father and Nicodemus one of his half-brothers, it suddenly seems very likely that Christ did not die on the cross. He was convicted and crucified to satisfy the Jews, but remained alive because of his connections. Joseph, his biological father, would have seen to that.

"Kill the Messenger" Resurrects Gary Webb, Journalist Maligned for Exposing CIA Ties to Crack Trade
Democracy Now!
http://democracynow.org - The new Hollywood film "Kill The Messenger" tells the story of Gary Webb, one of the most maligned figures in investigative journalism. Webb's explosive 1996 investigative series "Dark Alliance" for the San Jose Mercury News revealed ties between the CIA, Nicaraguan contras and the crack cocaine trade ravaging African-American communities. The exposé provoked protests and congressional hearings, as well as a fierce reaction from the media establishment, which went to great lengths to discredit Webb's reporting. We revisit Webb’s story with an extended clip from the documentary "Shadows of Liberty," and speak with Robert Parry, a veteran investigative journalist who advised Webb before he published the series.

So Ruppert put a call out to his friends and thousands of Facebook followers. Jack Martin, a serial entrepreneur and self-described doomsday prepper, responded: his 1955 Spartan Royal Mansion — a classic, metallic silver camper — sat uninhabited on a rectangular, 2.5-acre property near the northern Napa Valley town of Calistoga. The trailer was humble, but it was Napa — surrounded by wineries, miles of open grassland, and the peaks of the Mayacamas Mountains. Ruppert accepted. Re intended to follow him there as soon as she could.
Ruppert arrived in February with his dog, Rags. A manicured garden and greenhouse sat on the property; Martin and his son grew and sold heirloom tomatoes and watermelons and peppers to local restaurants. They also heeded Ruppert’s warnings about the end of industrial civilization, developing the skills and means to grow their own food and fix their own machines.

DOJ inspector general, set to release major report on FBI's Russia investigation, spent years prosecuting corrupt officials

Kristine Phillips  USA TODAY
Published 12:05 PM EST Dec 9, 2019
https://eu.usatoday.com/story/news/politics/2019/12/08/fbi-fisa-report-michael-horowitz-release-findings-carter-page-russia-probe/2590297001/ 
 WASHINGTON — The scandal in the New York Police Department's 30th Precinct  brought down a number of corrupt officers who sold drugs they confiscated, sometimes to the same dealers they took them from.
Thirty officers pleaded guilty or were convicted by juries in the 1990s. The "Dirty 30" became one of the biggest police corruption cases in New York City history. It's a reminder that sometimes, criminals wear a badge.
The federal prosecutor responsible for many of those convictions was Michael Horowitz. Now he's the Department of Justice's inspector general, a key player in one of the most politically charged investigations in Washington.
Monday, Horowitz's office will release a long-awaited report on whether the FBI conducted illegal surveillance of a former Trump campaign aide. President Donald Trump and his allies contend the FBI improperly spied on the campaign.
Horowitz is expected to offer sharp criticism of the FBI, but his report is also expected to conclude the bureau was justified in launching its two-year inquiry into the Trump campaign's possible ties to Russian interference in the 2016 election.

Dueling investigations:
Days before inspector general's report on FBI's Russia investigation, Trump promotes AG probe
Horowitz spent several years prosecuting police officers and other government officials who abused their power. His former co-workers say that prepared him to conduct some of the most politically controversial, high-stakes investigations in the country.
In an interview with former Newsday columnist Leonard Levitt, Horowitz explained how prosecutors broke the blue wall of silence and pushed cops to inform on fellow officers. 
"Cops won't volunteer anything. You have to let them know you aren't bluffing," Horowitz, then a federal prosecutor in Manhattan, said in "NYPD Confidential: Power and Corruption in the Country's Greatest Police Force." 
"You have to know where their bank accounts are, where they've hidden their money," Horowitz said. "Then you have to let them know you have the goods." 

As one of the most powerful investigators of the investigators in Washington, those who know and have worked for Horowitz say he stays focused on the facts, no matter how politically unpopular they are.
"I don't believe I ever knew what his political affiliation was. ... I never asked. He didn't know what mine was and he never asked. It didn't matter," said Charles McCullough,  the intelligence community's inspector general under the Obama administration.
FISA report: DOJ watchdog set to release report critical of FBI surveillance of Trump's campaign
Horowitz, who declined to be interviewed, has spent nearly two years examining the FBI's surveillance of Carter Page, at the time a foreign policy adviser to the Trump campaign. The bureau was investigating whether the campaign coordinated with Russia to damage Democratic presidential candidate Hillary Clinton.
The FBI, Trump and practically everyone with a political agenda has a stake in Horowitz's report. 
The FBI has been under attack by the president and his allies since it launched the investigation. Trump has claimed for three years that a cabal of top law enforcement officials, driven by political bias, conspired against him.

Democrats are looking to see how the report affects their momentum as they draft articles of impeachment against Trump.
"Whatever comes out, they will never have a legitimate argument that (Horowitz) didn't do the right thing," said Marietta Robinson, a Michigan lawyer and longtime friend.
'Not a "gotcha" IG'
Horowitz, 57, was born in New York City. His father owned a company that made women's clothing. His mother owned an antiques store. 
He graduated summa cum laude from Brandeis University and magna cum laude from Harvard Law School, where he was executive editor of the Harvard Civil Rights-Civil Liberties Law Review. 
As a young attorney, he clerked for U.S. District Judge John Davies in California. He spent eight years as a federal prosecutor in the Southern District of New York, where he led the Public Corruption Unit.

FISA report: Justice Department praises watchdog's upcoming report on Russia inquiry amid reported criticism by Attorney General Barr
Aside from the "Dirty 30" case, Horowitz led an investigation into immigration officials who accepted more than $100,000 in bribes in return for issuing green cards. 
Horowitz moved to Washington, where he became a high-ranking Justice Department attorney under Republican and Democratic appointees.

In 2011, President Barack Obama nominated him as inspector general for the Justice Department. Horowitz left a lucrative job at a law firm and started in 2012.
During his Senate confirmation hearing, Horowitz described his years as a public corruption prosecutor in New York, where his work didn't always endear him to colleagues. 
“Particularly when we were arresting law enforcement officers who were working on cases in our own office with other units,” Horowitz said. “But I wasn’t interested in winning popularity contests. … I was instructed by the U.S. Attorney to doggedly pursue corruption, to be independent of the other units in the office, and that’s precisely what I did.”

Spying, treason and politics: President Trump ups the stakes in Russia probe battle despite scant evidence
As inspector general, Horowitz approaches his job like a fair-minded prosecutor who puts himself in the shoes of the people he's investigating, McCullough said. 
"He looks at things holistically. He's not a 'gotcha' IG. He's not a Monday-morning quarterback," McCullough said. 

McCullough, an Obama appointee, received blowback from Clinton allies in 2016 after he told lawmakers he believed there was classified material in several dozen emails Clinton exchanged as secretary of state and stored on a private server.
McCullough said he was also criticized by fellow inspectors general who were supportive of Clinton. "But not Michael," he said. "Michael is all about process. He's nonpartisan."
Co-workers say Horowitz's record shows he's nonpartisan
In early 2018, Trump questioned why Horowitz should be the one to investigate the FBI's conduct during the Russia probe. 
"Isn't the IG an Obama guy? the president tweeted. "Why not use Justice Department lawyers? DISGRACEFUL!"
Former co-workers point out that Horowitz has served under Republican and Democratic presidents. They say he can handle politically controversial investigations, like his inquiry into Fast and Furious, a botched Obama-era gun-trafficking operation. 
A report released by Horowitz's office in 2012 portrayed a dysfunctional group of investigators and departments that allowed about 2,000 firearms to fall into the hands of Mexican drug cartels and other criminals.
Horowitz did not conclude that the Justice Department's top leadership knew about the blunders, but he recommended disciplinary action against 14 federal law enforcement officials.
FISA records: 

FBI releases records on Carter Page surveillance
In a scathing report last year, Horowitz rebuked former FBI Director James Comey for his handling of the Clinton email investigation, but he found no evidence of political bias.
"His leadership has been, let's do the right thing," said Cynthia Schnedar, who was Horowitz's deputy during the Fast and Furious investigation. "Let's investigate fairly but also honestly and accurately and call the shots as the facts are."

Horowitz has two portraits of former attorneys general in his office, according to former colleagues. One is a portrait of William H. H. Miller, who became attorney general in 1889 and left office with his reputation intact. The other is Harry M. Daugherty, who was forced to resign in 1924 amid a bribery scandal.
"Michael would frequently comment on how he had both of these portraits on each side of his desk," said Rob Storch, Horowitz's former deputy and current inspector general of the National Security Agency. "I think the general concept was it covered the gamut of behavior by public officials."

Thoughts on the Horowitz Report, Part II: What the Inspector General Did Not Find
By Benjamin Wittes
 Friday, December 27, 2019
https://www.lawfareblog.com/thoughts-horowitz-report-part-ii-what-inspector-general-did-not-find
Normally, when an inspector general finds significant irregularities and improprieties in one arena and none in some other arenas, we focus on the areas in which he or she finds wrongdoing. After all, we expect things to be normal. So when an investigation finds that things are normal, no action or remediation is required, and it’s a bit ostrich-like to spend time making much of such findings before turning to serious problems that do require fixing.
Then again, normally, the president of the United States does not spend years promoting unfounded conspiracy theories about the subject the inspector general has been tasked to investigate. And, normally, an entire media industry does not commit itself to spinning a massive web of deceit about that subject in what amounts to a long-term disinformation campaign against individuals and government institutions alike.
Yet that is precisely what has happened over the past three years with regard to the FBI’s Crossfire Hurricane investigation. Without rehashing the lies in detail, let me just say that they have been copious and diverse and imaginative in their conspiratorial scope, they have been repeated relentlessly, and they have been influential.
And it is thus difficult to discuss Inspector General Michael Horowitz’s findings with respect to the Carter Page FISA applications without disentangling that issue from the many allegations with which they are intertwined.
It is thus important to emphasize the degree to which the Horowitz report debunks the surrounding conspiracy theories. I don’t mean debunk in the way that the Mueller report is said to debunk the idea of “collusion” between the Trump campaign and the Russians. The Mueller report, after all, found copious evidence of contacts, interactions, and cooperation between Trump campaign officials and Russian cutouts and agents—just not enough evidence to prosecute anyone for coordinating with the Russian electoral interference efforts. No, the Horowitz report debunks the “Witch Hunt” conspiracy theories on a far different level—the level of finding that a whole bunch of things alleged to have been done corruptly were, in fact, done on the level, done in compliance with policy for perfectly good reasons, or not done at all.
I reviewed some of these matters in a post the day the report was released. David Kris reviewed the findings on political bias in greater detail the other day, concluding,
I think it is fair to say the following about the inspector general’s report and the possibility of political bias in Crossfire Hurricane: (a) Horowitz did a very thorough investigation; (b) in the course of that investigation he was very much on the lookout for evidence of political bias that could have affected the conduct of Crossfire Hurricane; (c) he searched in the right places at the FBI and the Justice Department for such evidence (including agents’ text messages and emails, and the classified files); (d) he nonetheless did not find evidence of such bias; (e) he did find evidence affirmatively supporting the absence of political bias (including through the presence of evidence that justified various investigative steps and in testimony from FBI and Justice Department officials whose credibility does not appear to be seriously in question); but (f) he did not receive satisfactory explanations for the various significant failures that occurred in the investigation, which leaves the issue more open than it otherwise would be.
A few key additional points that bear emphasis:
The investigation was properly predicated and began when the FBI said it began.
The FBI did not improperly use confidential human sources.
The FBI did not use confidential human sources to gather intelligence on the Trump campaign at all.
There is no relationship between the conduct of the investigation and text exchanges between Peter Strzok and Lisa Page.
On some of these issues, the inspector general raises legitimate policy concerns, which I will discuss in a later post. For present purposes, the relevant point is simply that the behavior that has occupied hundreds of presidential tweets and countless hours on Fox News—and dominated innumerable ranting speeches by Republican members of Congress—did not happen. Not that these things can’t be proved or, in Mueller-speak, that the evidence “does not establish” them. They are just not true.
I would not dwell on this point if those who advanced these theories showed any sign of backing off of them. But they don’t. The day the inspector general’s report was issued, President Trump cited it triumphantly for a proposition it decisively rejects: “This was an overthrow of the government. This was an attempted overthrow, and a lot of people were in on it. And they got caught. They got caught red-handed,” he said.

In a speech at a rally on Dec. 18, Trump revived the insurance policy conspiracy, declaring before an audience, “We have an insurance policy, we’re in the insurance policy right now, folks. We've been in it for three years that’s what they meant. I mean, the insurance policy is on an artificial respirator because we’re doing awfully well.”
During Horowitz’s testimony before the Senate Judiciary Committee this month, a number of Republican senators sought to retroactively morph his undoubtedly devastating findings with respect to the handling of the Page FISA application into support for the broader proposition that the FBI had been, in fact, politically targeting the Trump campaign. This understanding simply does not survive even a cursory reading of the report, which makes clear that the misconduct and errors found were confined largely to the handling of the Page FISA application, were confined to the line levels of the investigation, and, critically, did not involve investigative steps against the campaign itself or against people about whom there was no predicated investigation. It’s a feeble sort of witch hunt indeed that goes after only people against whom the FBI has a proper basis for conducting an investigation and uses against those people only lawful investigative tools.
All of this is not to diminish the severity of what Horowitz found with respect to the handling of the Page FISA application, to which I’ll turn in the posts to come, but, rather, to situate that discussion where it belongs. The misconduct found there, at least not as the report describes it, does not appear to have been part of a coup attempt, an insurance policy or a witch hunt. It was either a spectacular one-off failure driven by the investigative peculiarities of the way Crossfire Hurricane was set up, or it reflects systemic weaknesses in the FISA process more generally. Those are both very serious matters, the latter possibility more serious than the former. But they are quite different from the problem of political targeting of enemies, which is what the president and his allies continue to allege.
To respond effectively to the problem the FBI now has to address, it is important first to understand it properly. To do that, it is critical to stop lying about it—or, at least, to see through the barrage of lies. Otherwise, one might address problems that don’t exist while failing to address those that do.
There’s one more reason to emphasize Horowitz’s debunking of lies: Because they are malicious untruths about real people—ironically, people who are not the folks Horowitz accuses of wrongdoing in this report. These lies have had big effects on people’s lives. I know that, to many commentators, it is all just grist for television and op-eds and the larger outrage machine. But if you happen to be Lisa Page, it’s about something more than that. If you happen to be Peter Strzok or Andrew McCabe, or Jim Baker, or anyone else the president has publicly accused of “treason,” it’s about something more than that too.
Some time back, Baker made an arresting comment in a congressional deposition, “The FBI’s counterintelligence investigation regarding the 2016 campaign fundamentally was not about Donald Trump but was about Russia. Full stop. It was always about Russia. It was about what Russia was, and is, doing and planning.”
The broad significance of the inspector general’s findings one has to appreciate before understanding the findings with respect to the Page FISA application is that Baker was telling the truth. The investigation may have taken steps that the inspector general thinks unwise, thinks should have been forbidden by policy, and thinks should have required more Justice Department consultation. It may have been too aggressive for Horowitz’s taste in certain respects. But it was, in fact, about Russia. It was always about Russia. Full stop.

Man and Wife Report Disk Seen

The intelligence office of the 509th Bombardment group at Roswell Army Airfield announced at noon today, that the field has come into possession of a flying saucer. According to information released by the department, over the authority of Maj. J.A, Marcel, intelligence officer, the disk was recovered on a ranch in the Roswell vicinity, after an unidentified rancher had notified Sheriff Geo Wilcox, here, that he had found the instrument on his premises. Major Marcel and a detail from his department went to the ranch and recovered the disk, it was stated .…” ..... Taken from the original letter
Note:
In contrast to the above article which appeared in the Tuesday, July 8th, 1947 newspaper, on the Very Next Day .. this is, Wednesday morning July 9th, the paper reported that the “flying disk” found near Roswell: 1947 was NOT a disc or saucer, but instead a weather balloon or weather device. Some quote General Ramey while another quote “informed” sources, including senators in Washington. Reports are military toured news media offices in Roswell, Alburquerque, and Santa Fe retrieving original copies of the press release sent out the date before by RAAF that revealed the Army has a “flying disk” in their possession. A wire recording interview was also confiscated.
In September 1947, two months following the crash down, when famed astronomer and meteor expert Dr. Lincoln La Paz was recruited by the U.S. Army Counter-Intelligence Corps to determine the speed, direction, and trajectory of the craft prior ti its impact …. which was especially interesting in the fact that the party line was telling the public the object was nothing more than a mere slow-moving windblown weather device …La Paz kept running into what has been described as “a sea of reluctant witnesses”,,,

The romantic image of Christ-Jesus Portrait

Corey Goode:   like what do you want to call it ... the Rockefeller Civil War .. of ufology,
Ben:  yeah ... I mean actually that's pretty accurate  ..The Rockefeller’s and Rothschild Civil War 
The Rockefeller’s and Rothschild Civil War 
"..There's all freaking out right now ... all the Deep State Actors are all going to reveal themselves ...The Rockefeller’s and Rothschild’s... want to control the Disclosure narrative ...  as do corporate interest and military intelligence ... they all somewhat  work together and have the same kind of belief systems ... so I started getting hit on the head with a hammer very quickly like what-a-mole ... luckily I have a think skull ... otherwise,  I would not have been able to take it ... but even going back all the way to that time ... we knew that the attacks were coming from infiltrators .... we have infiltrators .... we have the Rockefellers .. they've been involved all the way back to the  Rockefeller initiative …
….……………………
Corey Goode: also we are seeing mirroring going on .. kind of attacks that are going on against me and others …. in Ufology they are going on the Quuanon Phonomena … the same exact tactics …. like a template .. all the character assassinations … putting out big lies and hoping they will stick … all the exact same tactics are being used … by the same people…. you have the Rockefellers and the Rothschilds, who are actually competitors for the most part, but when it comes to Ufology their both on the same page for controlling things … we have people from Military Intelligence that have infiltrated …. Mirage Men where Rich Doty, former US Air Force Special Agent …  was a person that was approached by the military who have told him that aliens were here on planet earth, but they were screwing with his head …
It is highly recommended that everyone watch the movie Mirage Men …. (which has human-like beings) .. which really shows you the infiltration and how these things look … which was created based on a real story but made out to be ‘How the US Government created a myth that took over the world …’ … the guy ended up committing suicide because of the tactics ..
The spiritual side is a major part of humanity’s evolution … you have to have a balance between the spiritual side and the intellectual side  

When you go into Entertainment
1. You need to know what your IP is
2. What your rights are
3. You need to set your boundaries

Anything such as producing a truth show like this is still considered entertainment ..even documentaries are still considered entertainment …
There are people from corporations and Military Intell Agencies that are paid to deliberately paid to Gas Light the Community to make sure it burns ….
The Cabal are using legal means to strike against us and easy it is for them to do this….. not just physical attacks but even more so character assassinations so it doesn’t come together to become a threat …
Positive and Negative Energy
Physical Health
Corey Goode:  There are thousands of Light Workers praying for our safety..
There are not only positive people praying but there are also the negative luciferin satanic .. whatever groups… they hand out prayer lists .. ‘we need you to pray for someone …’….’OK alright I’m going to do it ’ … then they go and do their dark negative luciferin satanic practices and send negative energy and bring in their dark entities and then the next thing you know that targeted person starts having all these dark negative greetings and bad luck … and gets sick … when something is about to happen … or if they can’t attack you directly they will attack people around you that have more chinks in their armour …someone in your family … they would explode right when you are doing something important …  to sidetrack you and distract you … so we have many many layers to deal with in this community when it comes to infiltration and forces trying to keep us at our heals ….  
Washington Post says Trump has topped 10,000 false misleading statements…
April 29, 2019

Ben Chasteen and Robert Counts:  I know for a fact that they have been doing this with Trump for a long time …
with all the positive factors .. especially with Quuanon and all the other media that are reporting positively on Trump what the actual truth as to what is happening … it really seems to be counterbalanced too…. that there seems to be a counterbalancing of such negative forces that are coming after people that are really trying to tell the truth …
Corey Goode: they're really freaking out right now … because not only because of Quu and what is just happening out in the world … there has been an obvious shift … the negative was in control and they had ownership .. and they didn’t see a way that they could be stopped .. and now its flipped … the negative forces have had the carpet pulled right out under their feet …a ll of their secrets that they have used to blackmail people with are now being picked up by the Alliance ., and brought to the court of law and they are about to hand over publicly … in these mass indictments that are coming… and they are panicking … now with my information and David’s information are others who are putting out information about the secret space program … and the scope of it … that is freaking them out … the narrative that was supposed to be crashed flying saucers and little green men .. Is it true? Did it happen? ….Get it out… It is not supposed to be… Yes, it did happen and we recovered that technology to a full space program … that is now trading with extraterrestrial races … trading human beings for technology …
What Is Going On? Who Is Good v Who Is Bad?
Ben Chasteen and Robert Counts:

 Obviously because we have seen so many things we have a long time ago stopped wondering if their are aliens that have visited earth .. obviously the government knows whats going on .. is now now about who is behind it all and who is on the good side and who is on the bad side?
Corey Goode:  
Right now for the community it is almost impossible to discern what the heck is going on .. there is so much dis-information …. so much hatred. and negative information .. that people want to withdraw from that … what needs to happen is that the community needs to reclaim itself …..
Ben Chasteen and Robert Counts:

they don’t understand that all of this ties together … in the whole aspect of Quuanon, the indictments, what’s going on politically, what Trump is doing … the Deep State .. all these … then coming onto the alien technology . the human trafficking … like all of this stuff like ..
Corey Goode:

 look at Quuanon … the Trip Codes that were released … Dr Sallas information … David Wilcox Cooper ….. The Pale Horse …all of these that refer to what we are talking about are referenced…. your right .. it all ties together.

Barbeio: The Story of Jesus Christ, Author: Riaan Booysen
BARBELO - The Story of Jesus Christ - My intention with Barbelo was not to sell books, but rather to highlight aspects of his life that the Church would otherwise not bother to comment on if asked, not to mention risk debating. So what will you find in Barbelo? Apart from presenting probably one of the most complete collections of unflattering if not downright blasphemous texts from the first centuries after Christ, I will also show that there was absolutely no divine interaction in his life, from his miracles to the so-called ‘prophecy’ in Revelation about the ‘number of the beast’. Everything has a down-to-earth, very human explanation. In Barbelo several persons relatively unknown in Christian literature are identified, including Joseph Barsabbas of the Flat Feet, Mary, Martha and Lazarus, the children of Simon ben Boethus, Zebedee and Pandira. It is often stated that the Bible tells us nothing about the physical appearance of Christ, but the early Church Fathers had a lot to say about it, and none of it flattering. And then, of course, there are the accusations of violence perpetrated by Christ and his disciples – hence the title of the book, ‘Barbelo’.
I have concerns about my health (I have epilepsy) and rather than risking all this work potentially being lost, I have decided, with the publisher’s permission, to make the book freely available in electronic format (ePub, Kindle and PDF, see download links below – note that only the PDF file, and the hard copy of course, has an Index at the back).

Michael Ruppert allegedly shot himself in front of this blue GMC truck on Jack Martin's property just outside the Napa Valley town of Calistoga, California.

Apart from private emails he sent to friends and Jessy Re, and his final Facebook post, Ruppert wrote a suicide note and taped it next to the door of Martin’s trailer. Written in upper-case block lettering, the note read:
A FINAL OFFERING OF FLESH
FOR THE CHILDREN
ABOUT ALL I HAVE LEFT
TO GIVE
MAY IT RELEASE LOVE + LIGHT
INTO A WORLD DYING
IN DARKNESS
He signed it "Tracker of Truth," before adding a last line, written in lowercase letters, seemingly an afterthought: "There is no more time."
Ruppert’s suicide notes were designed to make it clear that he’d committed suicide and not been killed by CIA operatives or anyone else. Though a few online conspiracy theorists initially speculated that he’d been assassinated, those rumors soon evaporated.

Bill Cooper talking on his book Beyond The Pale Horse 

 The NSA is the premium Intelligence Agency in the United States
The NSA gets 75% of the funding provided
The director of the NSA is the effective head of all security departments and organizations in the USA.
The NSA is not subject to any law in the USA, that the law does not name the NSA as being subject to that law. Thus the reality is that the NSA is a well fund very powerful organization that is not subject to any laws and makes its own rules and guidelines run by The Bilderberg Group which were created as a secret world government.

The United Nations is an international joke with no real power.
Asking Eisenhour to help with the Alien Problem was the worst thing possible for the USA and the world, because the effective control of the USA and the World was handed over to secret government which known as the Bilderberger Group

An Alien Group warned the world that the other Aliens were a danger the earth and would help would the spiritual development of people on Planet Earth, and they said that they insisted on Nuclear Disarmament

 The Wise Men: Six Friends and the World They Made is a 1986 book by Walter Isaacson and Evan Thomas. It describes the actions of a group of U.S. government officials and members of the East Coast foreign policy Establishment. Starting in the immediate post-World War II period, the group developed the containment policy of dealing with the Communist bloc during the Cold War. They also helped to craft institutions and initiatives such as NATO, the World Bank, and the Marshall Plan. An updated edition of the book was released in 2012, as well as a "Quicklet" summary of the book.

Members of the Group
The book identifies six people who were important foreign policy advisers to U.S. Presidents from Franklin D. Roosevelt to Lyndon Johnson and were influential in the development of Cold War era foreign policy for America. The six are:
Dean Acheson, Secretary of State under President Harry Truman
Charles E. Bohlen, U.S. Ambassador to the Soviet Union, the Philippines, and France
W. Averell Harriman, Special Envoy for President Franklin Roosevelt
George F. Kennan, Ambassador to the Soviet Union and Yugoslavia, State Dept. Director of Policy Planning
Robert A. Lovett, Truman's Secretary of Defense
John J. McCloy, a War Department official and later U.S. High Commissioner for Germany.
The group comprised two lawyers, two bankers, and two diplomats. Five of the six were from the so-called Georgetown Set. Acheson, Harriman, and Lovett had known each other since their days at prep school or college and on Wall Street. Bohlen, Kennan and McCloy were younger and did not know the others well until their public lives brought them into close contact.
Most of these men, Lovett and McCloy in particular, were strongly influenced by Secretary of War Henry Stimson. Elihu Root, Stimson's mentor, is often regarded as the prototypical "wise men."

Influence
They coalesced as a group when Truman became President in 1945 and greatly needed advice on foreign policy, as he knew very little in that area. The group helped to create a bipartisan foreign policy based on resistance to the expansion of Soviet power. The authors describe them as the hidden architects behind the Truman Doctrine, the Marshall Plan, and Cold War containment. Kennan, in particular, is regarded as "the father of containment."
The book portrays them as personifying an ideal of statesmanship marked by nonpartisanship, pragmatic internationalism, and aversion to ideological fervor. They tended to be practical, realistic, and nonideological. After the six had retired from public life, they and other like-minded establishment elders were dubbed The Wise Men.
In 1967 and 1968, Johnson summoned them and a few others (including General Omar Bradley) to advise him on foreign policy, particularly the Vietnam War. In November 1967, they unanimously recommended staying in Vietnam, but in a pivotal second meeting in March 1968, most said the war could not be won and American troops should be withdrawn.

These were not bad guys, these were a study group,
And the first MJ12 was not made up of bad buys
They were made up of concerned Americans..
What happened later became bad…
The yanking of power away from the President of the USA
The formation of a secret government
The sale of drugs to the American People
Etc. Etc. Etc.
And I am going to cover most of those things before I am finished.
Its about time
The second phase of the meetings were also held at the military base Quantico Virginia
And the group became known as Quantico II.
M J Rockefeller built a retreat that could only be reach by the members of MJ 12 so they could meet away from public scrutiny,,,  

the meeting place was known by the code name “The Country Club”
Complete, eating, sleeping and library facilities existed at the location.
The Study Group was publicly called in the later years of 1956
And Henry Kissinger published as the official results in 1957 as
Nuclear Weapons and Foreign Policy by Henry Kissinger.
Published for the Council of Foreign Relations by Harper Collins New York
In truth, the manuscript has been 80% written while Kissinger was at Harvard …
The study group continues veiled in secrecy .. included in the seriousness of the study group can be found in the statements of Henry Kissinger's wife and friends..
Many of them stated that Henry would leave home early each morning and return home late each night without speaking to anyone or responding to anyone … it seemed in fact as though he was in another world … now when they say that he would not speak to anyone or respond to anyone… they meant it literally … I find these statements very revealing …the presence of alien beings and actions during the study must have been a great shock to friends and family … I know I would have been shocked … Henry Kissinger was definitely out of character during the times surrounding these meetings as he was normally described as being a gentleman … very charming and most people like him very much …. Henry Kissinger would never again be affected in this manner no matter of the seriousness of any subsequent event … on many occasions, he would work late into the night having already put in a full day … coupled with his not speaking …. this behavior eventually led to his divorce …


a major finding of the Alien Study was that the public could not be told … as it was believed that this would most certainly lead to economic collapse and possibly the collapse of the religious structure that would lead to anarchy … secrecy thus continued … the offshoot of this finding was that if the public can not be told then congress can not be told … thus the funding for the projects and research of these projects would have to come from outside the government …

Are some things beginning to fall into place …
Without Aliens, you can not make sense of anything that has been happening for the  44 years…. you out the Aliens in the middle of this stuff and you’ve got all the answers … every one of the answers …

in the meantime money was to be obtained from the Military Budget, and the CIA Confidential Non-Appropriated Funds…


. another major finding was that Aliens were using Humans and Animals for a source of glandular secretions, enzymes, hormonal secretions,  blood in horrible genetic experiments …..


the Aliens explained that these experiments were necessary for their very survival …


what I am going to tell you is very sad ….

because I am unable to read between the lies and deceptions to find the truth …

all I know is what they told us … they stated that their genetic structure has deteriorated to such an extent that they were no longer able to reproduce …. they stated that if they were unable to improve their genetic structure that their race would soon cease to exist …. we looked upon their explanations with extreme suspicion …. since our weapons were literally useless against the Aliens, MJ 12 decided to continue friendly diplomatic relations with them until such time that we were able to challenge them on a Military Basis …


overtures would have to be made to other humans and other nations for the survival of humanity … in the meantime plans were made the develop and construct two weapons systems using conventional and nuclear technology …. which would hopefully bring us to parity … the results of the research were projects Joshua and Excalibur …

Joshua was a weapon captured from the Germans which at that time was capable of shattering armored plate steel of four-inch plate steel for a range of two miles using low frequency aimed sound waves …. and it was believed that this weapon would be effective against the alien craft and Beem Weapons ….
Excalibur was a weapon carried by missiles not to exceed 3,000 feet above ground level … not to deviate from designated targets for more than 50 metres …. that would penetrate 1,000 meters of hard-packed soil such as that found in New Mexico … would carry a one-ton warhead and was intended for use in destroying the Aliens in their underground bases …
Joshua was developed successfully by to my knowledge was never use …
Excalibur … was not pushed until recent years and now there is an unprecedented effort to develop this weapon …
People who are working on these weapons tell us that they have never been pushed so hard in history working on any project … then they are being pushed to develop Project  Excalibur  
Now, what I am going to read to you next may upset some of you but it is absolutely true …

“ ..the events at  Fatima in the early part of the century were absolutely scrutinized on suspicion that it was Alien Manipulation … an intelligence operation was put into place to penetrate the secrecy that surrounded the event … the United States utilized its Vatican moles that had been recruited and nurtured during World War Two .. and soon obtained the entire Vatican study which included the Fatama Prophesy  … I do not care what you have ever read before … you have not read the true prophecy…

“ This prophesy stated that if man did not turn from Evil and replace himself there will be a price to pay and the events described in the book of revelations would indeed come to pass …. it stated that a child would be born that would unite the world with a plan for world peace and a false religion in 1992 by 1995 the people would discern that he was evil and was indeed the Anti-Christ …

World War Three would begin in the middle of 1995 … with the invasion of Israel using conventional weapons … culminating in a nuclear holocaust in 1999… between 1999 and 2003 most of the life on this planet would suffer horribly and as a result, the return of Christ would appear in 2011 …. “

If this as true … I don’t know … but I know that it was decided by the United States Government that this was indeed an Alien Event and I believe that this is more deception which is being heaped upon us …. so don’t go out of here thinking the world is going to end tomorrow because of this … the world might end because of something else … and I am going to talk about that … when the Aliens were confronted with this finding they confirmed that it was true … the Aliens explained that they had created us through hybridization and manipulated the human race through religion, satanism, witchcraft, black magic, the occult, secret societies etc.they further explained that they were capable of time travel in the event that these events would indeed come to pass ….  exploitation of technology in the Soviet Union, Time Travel and confirmed that indeed something bad was going to happen … the Aliens showed a Hologram which they claimed was the actual crucifixion of Christ … which the Government filmed …. we did not know whether to believe them or not … were they using our genuine religions to manipulate us … or indeed were they the source of our religions with which they had been manipulating us all along … or was this the genuine beginning of the end of times and return of Christ that was predicted in the Bible … no one knew the answer ….. and I don’t know the answer either …. this symposium was held in 1957 and was attended by some of the great scientific minds then living … and was held in Huntsville Alabama … they reached the conclusion that after the year 2000 Planet Earth would self destruct due to increased population and man’s exploitation of the environment without any help from God or the Aliens … be secret executive order of Eisenhower, the Jason Scholars were to study this scenario


and make recommendations of their findings … this was done … the Jason Society confirmed the findings of the top scientists and made three recommendations called alternatives, One, Two and Three …
Alternative One: Use nuclear devices to blast holes in the stratosphere from which the heat and pollution and heat could escape into space …. “ I’ll buy heat but I’ll never buy pollution …. “comment by Bill Cooper …
And Change the Human Consciousness from that of exploitation and the cultures of  environmental protection
This was decided to be the least likely to succeed due to the inherent nature of man and the additional damage that the nuclear explosions themselves would create …


Alternative Two: Was to build a vast network of underground  cities and tunnels were a select representation of all cultures and occupations  would survive to carry on the human race …
The rest of humanity would be left to fend for themselves on the surface of the planet …


Alternative Three: Was to exploit the Alien Technology in order for a select few to leave the earth and establish colonies in outer space
I am not able to confirm or deny the existence of batch of human slaves which would be used for the manual labour in the effort and needed as part of the plan ……
The Moon, Code Named Adam would be of primary interest … followed by the Planet Mars … Code Named Eve …. as a delaying action the three Alternatives would be used along with the sterilization, birth control … forced if necessary and the introduction of deadly microbes to slow and control the Earth’s population … AIDS (Acquired immunodeficiency syndrome) is only one result of these plans … there are others …
It was decided …since the population must be reduced …. and in the interests of control … it would be best to rid ourselves of the unwanted elements of our society …
As a delayng action, ALL THREE ALTERNATIVES included birth control sterilization, and the introduction of deadly microbes to control or slow the growth of the Earth’s population, AIDS is only ONE result of these plans. It was decided by the ELITE that since the population must be reduced and controlled, it would be I the best interest of the human race to rid ourselves of the undesirable elements of our society. Specified targeted populations included BLACKS< HISPANICS and HOMOSEXUALS
The joint leadership of the United States and the Soviet Union dismissed Alternative One, but ordered that work begin on …

 Alternative Two and Three .. virtually at the same time …
Those of you in the state of Washington that report hearing machinery underground are probably correct …
In 1959 the Rand Corporation hosted a  Deep Underground  Construction Simposion.
I have a copy of this Simposion Report that I am not supposed to have ..nevertheless I have it .. it is approximately this thick …
In the  Symposium Report machines are pictured and described which can bore tunnels 45 feet in diameter at the rate of five feet per hour in 1959 …  ‘just think what they can do now? ..’
It also displays pictures of huge  tunnels and underground vaults, containing what appear to be complex facilities and possibilities even cities … it appears that the previous five years of all-out underground construction had made very significant progress by that time …

The ruling powers decided that one means of funding the Alien connected and other black projects was to corner the illegal drug market ….
A young and ambitious member of the Council of Foreign Relations was approached … His name was George Bush … who at the time was the president and CEO of Seposita Oil based in Texas  Seposita Oil was experimenting with the new technology of offshore drilling …  

It was correctly thought that the drugs could be shipped from South America to the Off Shore Oil Platforms where the drugs could be taken ashore by ordinary fishing boat transportation used for ordinary supplies and personal … by this method no customs or law enforcement agency would subject the cargo for search … George Bush agreed to help in conjunction with the CIA ..

The plan worked better than anyone had thought and has since expanded worldwide and there are many other methods of bringing the illegal drugs into the United States … but it must always be remembered that George Bush began the sale of drugs to our children … now if you think I am crazy … get off your but and start digging … because you will find out that it is absolutely true ….

The CIA now controls all the world’s illegal drug market …
The official space program was boosted by President Kennedy and in his inaugural address when he mandated that the United States may land a man on the moon before the end of the decade .. although innocent in it’s conception … this mandate enabled those in charge to funnel vast amounts of money into black projects and conceal the real space program from the American People …  
A similar program in the Soviet Union served the same purpose ….
The fact that a joint Soviet Union and United States Base already existed on the moon at the very moment President Kennedy Spoke the words …
Today there is a colony on Planet Mars that exists which is the United States and Russian Facility.

Comment by Bill Cooper to the audience:
“ if you believe it is outrageous, stick around for a few years …this is very disturbing information and I do not expect anyone to believe it …. I do not expect one of you to believe what I am telling you … and I knew that when I cam here…. I am not one of you .. I am not a Ufologist …. I am not a researcher … I have an obligation to inform the public and once that’s done I done my job… from then on it’s up to you …not me …  this colony which exists on Mars populated by specially selected people from different cultures and occupations taken from all over the Earth..
. A public charade of antagonism between the Soviet Union and the United States has been maintained over all these years in order to fund projects in the name of national defense when In fact the United States is the closest allies with the Soviet Union.

On May 22nd, 1962 a space program landed on Mars and confirmed the existence on Mars which could support life … along afterward the construction of a colony on Planet Mars began in earnest. Today I believe a colony exists on Mars populated by specially selected people from different cultures and occupations taken from all over the Earth. A public charade of antagonism between the Soviet Union and the United States has been maintained over all these years in order to fund projects in the name of national defense when In fact the United States is the closest ally with the Soviet Union.

William Cooper - 2012 - ‎Social Science
In 1959 the Rand Corporation hosted a Deep Underground Construction ... Not long afterward the construction of a colony on the planet Mars began in earnest.

At some point, President Kennedy discovered portions of the truth concerning the drugs and the aliens. Kennedy issued an ultimatum in 1963 to Majesty Twelve. President Kennedy assured them that if they did not clean up the drug problem he would. President Kennedy informed Majesty Twelve that he intended to reveal the presence of aliens to the American People within the following year and ordered a plan to be developed to implement his decision. President Kennedy was not a member of the Council on Foreign Relations and knew nothing of Alternative Two or Three.
Internationally, the operations were supervised by the Bilderberg elite committee known as the Policy Committee. In the United States, there were supervised by the executive committee of the CRD and in the Soviet Union by its sister organization.
 President Kennedy’s decision, of course, struck fear into the hearts of these people in charge,  President Kennedy’s assassination was ordered by the Policy Committee and the order was carried out by agents of MJ 12 in Dallas.  President John F Kennedy was murdered by the Secret Service agent who drove his car in the motorcade and the act is plainly visible in the Zapruder film.
It was stated in the documents that I saw … that the assassin’s name was William Greer.
Watch the driver and not  President Kennedy when you view the film.
You can even view the film when you can find it.
 All of the witnesses who were close enough to the car to see William Greer shoot  President Kennedy were themselves murdered within two years of the event. That is a fact.
The Warren Commission was a farce, and Council on Foreign Relations members made up the majority of the Warren Commission Panel. They succeeded in snowing the American People and they hid the truth.
Many other patriots who attempted to reveal the alien secret have also been murdered throughout the intervening years.
And that is why I have been so careful about the information that I released … because it was so important that I was able to get here today to be able to tell you the truth … and what happens to me after today is of no consequence whatsoever … but what you do is…
 At the present time, over 200 material witnesses or people actually involved with the assassination are dead. The odds against this happening are so high that no one has been able to calculate them. The odds against the first eighteen people to die within two years of the assassination of President Kennedy were calculated at one hundred thousand trillion to one.


During the era of the United States Initial Space Explorations, and every mission of the moon landings, Every launch was accompanied by Alien Craft … a moon base on lunar was sighted and filmed by the Appolo astronauts ….. domes, spires, tall round structures which look like silos … huge stitch like vehicles that left tracks on the lunar surface and extremely large as well as small alien craft appear in the photographs … it is in fact a joint United States, Russian and Alien Base …

The Space Program is a farce and an unbelievable waste of money …

Alternative Three is a reality and it is not at all science fiction ….. most of the Apollo Astronauts were severely shaken by the experience and their lives and subsequent statements reflect the depths of the revelation and the effect of the muse order that followed … they were ordered to remain silent or suffer the extreme penalty of death which was termed in expediency …

One Astranoit did talk to the British Producers of the TV Expose of Alterative Three confirming many of the allegations, about Alternative three …  however, I do not know who it was …

In the book, Alternative Three the Sudimim Bob Grodan was used instead of the astronauts' identity …

It is also stated that he committed suicide in 1978 … this can not be validated by any source and I believe that several so-called facts in the book Alternative Three is really disinformation .. however, I can assure you that Alternative Three is real …

I firmly believe that this disinformation was the result of pressure put on authors to help nullify the effect on the populous of the British Expose titled Alternative Three …

The headquarters of the conspiracy is in Geneva Switzerland ….. the ruling body is made up of representatives of the governments involved … as well as the executive members of the group known as the Bilderbergers … meetings are held by the Policy Committee when necessary on a nuclear submarine beneath the polar ice cap … the secrecy is such that this was the only method to ensure that the meetings could not be bugged and is the only place … where they discuss the most secret matters …. I can say that the book is at least 70% true from my own knowledge and the knowledge of my sources … I believe that the disinformation was an attempt to compromise the British TV Expose with information which could be proved false … just as the Eisenhower document was released in the United States under the contingency plan of Majestic Twelve which can also be proven false …

Since our interaction with the Aliens began, we have come into possession of technology beyond our wildest dreams … a craft named Aurora exists at Area 51 which makes regular trips into space  … there’s a one stage ship called a TAV or a Trans Atmospheric Vehicle … and it can take off from the ground using a seven-mile runway and go into high orbit and return on its own power and land on the same runway .. they currently have atomic fired Alien Craft at Area SF4 in Nevada … our pilots have made any trips into space including the moon, Mars and other planets aboard these crafts …

There is a group of pilots at the base who wear a patch … which have a little Alien hanging over the bottom… it has I think three or four letters on the top of it … there is a picture of Saturn and a Picture of Mars in the photograph and in the background, there are seven stars strangely shaped, just like the stars of the Pleiades Group … what that means I don’t know …

We have been lied to about the true nature of the moon and planets Mars and Venus and the real state of technology that we possess today at this very moment ..


There are areas of the moon where plant life grows and even changes color with the seasons … this is because the moon does not present the exact same side to the earth or the sun … there is an area that waddles in and out of darkness on a seasonal basis and it near this area … that the plant life grows…

The moon does have a few man-made lakes upon its surface and clouds have been filmed and observed in its atmosphere …
How many of you remember a period of time over several years… that every reported alien craft that was reported landed … looks on or near water and reported to be pumping water into the craft …
How many of you remember that?
Quite a few ..
The water went to the moon ladies and gentlemen to change the moon …  and it’s working …


It possesses a gravitational field and man can walk upon its surface without a space suit breathing from an oxygen bottle after undergoing a decompression .. the same as any deep-sea diver …  
Ladies and gentlemen … if you can come from 1200 feet underwater to the surface of the earth through decompression you can go to the surface of one atmosphere and back ..
You see a vacuum does not cause a problem to the human body it is the inert gas that is dissolved in your tissue and in your bones and in the fluids in your body that causes you the problem …  if this is decompressed properly you will have no problem … all you need is a very small amount of oxygen a very small amount of pressure to breath … you will suffer no harm … except for one thing …  the oxygen becomes toxic after breathing it over a long period of time … therefor excursions will have to be of a minimal time limit …other than that there is no reason why you or anyone else could not walk on the surface of the moon … or in space in a  vacuum without a spacesuit .. …
How do I know?
I used to be one of the world’s experts on deep-sea mixed gas breathing mixtures for divers … and on deep saturation diving … I was the head of the department of the mixed gas diving division of the College of Oceaneering … and I can tell you know that it is much easier to decompress a vacuum and walk on the surface of the moon than it is to bring a man up from 600 feet below sea level …

I have seen the photographs and  some of them actually have been published in a book called

“We Discovered Alien Bases on the Moon” by Fred Steckling …however … all the photographs are not there, but there are some very good ones…   I advise you to buy the book .. I advise you to look at the photographs get the NASA number and send for them..

I doubt that you could still get them … but at one time you could …

In 1969 a confrontation broke out between the human scientists and the aliens at the Dulce Underground Lab,…. the aliens took many of our scientists hostages… Delta Forces were sent into to free them but weapons were of no match against the Alien Weapons….. 66 of our people were killed during the faction … as a result we withdrew from all joint projects wit the aliens for at least two years … a reconciliation eventually took place and once again we began to interact…

AS far as I know today we are interacting with the Aliens …

You can throw it in the trash can
You can burn my hose down if you want to
‘But I am telling you right now…. your future … your children’s future … your grand children’s future
Will depend on what you do with this information …
Your own government is selling your children drugs and you don’t seem to care…
Your own government has given away the power of the people and you don’t seem to care …
There is an apathy that is running rampant in this country is deadly …
Whether or not there are aliens we are truly at this moment a nation of sheep …
And ladies and gentlemen …. sheep are always led to the slaughter …
But it does not have t be that way …
There is tremendous power in knowledge ..
There is also tremendous power in secrecy …
Take away that secrecy … you make sure that you are informed … and you can change things …
And stop fighting with each other…
Thank you…..

Beyond The Pale
 The Conclusions Are Inescapable

(1) The secret power structure may believe that by our own ignorance or by divine decree, Planet Earth will self-destruct sometime in the near future. These men sincerely believe that they are doing the right thing in their attempt to save the human race. It is terribly ironic that they have been forced to take as a partner an alien race that is itself engaged in a monumental struggle for survival. Many moral and legal compromises may have been made in this joint effort. These compromises were made in error and must be corrected. Those responsible should be brought to account for their actions. I can understand the fear and urgency that must have been instrumental in the decision not to tell the public. Obviously I disagree with that decision.
Throughout history, small but powerful groups of men have constantly felt that they alone were capable of deciding the fates of millions. Throughout history, they have been wrong. This great nation owes its very existence to the principles of freedom and democracy. I believe with all my heart that the united states of American cannot and will not succeed in any effort that ignores those principles. Full disclosure to the public should be made and we should proceed to save the human race together.

(2) We are being manipulated by a joi9nt human/alien power structure that will result in a one-world government and the partial enslavement of the human race. This has been deemed necessary to solve the element question: "Who will speak for Planet Earth?" It has been decided that man is not mature enough in his evolutionary development to be trusted to interact properly with an alien race. We already have enough trouble between the different human races, so what would happen if totally alien extraterrestrial race was introduced? Would they be lynched, spit on or shot? Would discrimination result in nasty encounters that would doom humanity as a result of the alien's obviously superior technology? Have our leaders decided to ock us in the playpen?
The only way to prevent this scenario from taking place is to cause an evolutionary leap in how it can be done, but I know that it desperately needs to be done. It needs t to be done very quickly and very quietly

(3) The government has been totally deceived and we are being manipulated by an alien power, which will result in the total enslavement and/or destruction of the human race. We must use any and every means available to prevent this from happening.

(4) If none of the above are true, something else may be happening that is beyond our ability to understand at this moment. We must force disclosure of all the facts, discover the truth ad act on it. The situation in which we find ourselves is due to our own actions or inactions over the last forty-four years. Because it is our own fault, we are the only ones who can change future events. Education seems to me to be a major part of the solution. The remaining part is the abolition of secrecy.

(5) There is always the possibility that I was used, that the whole alien scenario is the greatest hoax in history designed to create an alien enemy from outer space in order to expedite the formation of a one-world government. I have found evidence that this could be true. I have included that evidence in the appendix. I advise you to consider this scenario as being probable.
Through ignorance or misplaced trust, we as a people have abdicated our role as the watchdog of our government. Our Government was founded "of the people, for the people, by the people." There was no mention or intent ever to abdicate our role and place our total trust is a handful of men who meet secretly to decide our fate. In fact, the structure of our government was designed to prevent that from ever happening. If we had done our jobs as citizens we would have never have reached this point. Most of us are completely ignorant as to even the most basic functions of our government. We have truly become a nation of sheep - and sheep are always eventually led to slaughter. It is time to stand up in the manner of our forefathers and walk like men. I remind the Jews of Europe marched obediently to the ovens after having been warned, believing all the while that the facts could not be possibly true. When the outside world was told of the holocaust occurring n Hitler's Europe, it was not believed at first.

You must understand that, real or not, the purported presence of aliens has been used to neutralize certain widely different segments of the population: "Don't worry; the benevolent space brothers will save you,". 
It can also be used to fill the need for an extraterrestrial threat to justify the formation of a New World Order: "The aliens are eating us," The most important information that you need to determine your future actions is that this w World Order calls for the destruction of the sovereignty of nations, including the United States. The New World Order cannot and will not allow our Constitution to exist. The New World Order will be a totalitarian socialist system. We will be slaves shackled to a cashless system of economic control.

If the documentation that I viewed while I was in Naval Intelligence is true, then what you have just read is probably closer to the truth than anything ever written. If extraterrestrials are a hoax, then what you just read is exactly what the Illuminati wants you to believe. I can assure you beyond any shadow of a doubt that even if aliens are not real, the technology ISREAL. Antigravity craft exist and human pilots fly them, I and millions of others have seen them, they are metal, they are machines they come in different shapes and sizes, and they are obviously intelligently guided.

DOJ inspector general, set to release major report on FBI's Russia investigation, spent years prosecuting corrupt officials

Michael Horowitz, the Justice Department's inspector general.
J. Scott Applewhite, AP
WASHINGTON — The scandal in the New York Police Department's 30th Precinct  brought down a number of corrupt officers who sold drugs they confiscated, sometimes to the same dealers they took them from.
Thirty officers pleaded guilty or were convicted by juries in the 1990s. The "Dirty 30" became one of the biggest police corruption cases in New York City history. It's a reminder that sometimes, criminals wear a badge.
The federal prosecutor responsible for many of those convictions was Michael Horowitz. Now he's the Department of Justice's inspector general, a key player in one of the most politically charged investigations in Washington.
Monday, Horowitz's office will release a long-awaited report on whether the FBI conducted illegal surveillance of a former Trump campaign aide. President Donald Trump and his allies contend the FBI improperly spied on the campaign.
Horowitz is expected to offer sharp criticism of the FBI, but his report is also expected to conclude the bureau was justified in launching its two-year inquiry into the Trump campaign's possible ties to Russian interference in the 2016 election.
Dueling investigations:Days before inspector general's report on FBI's Russia investigation, Trump promotes AG probe
Horowitz spent several years prosecuting police officers and other government officials who abused their power. His former co-workers say that prepared him to conduct some of the most politically controversial, high-stakes investigations in the country.
In an interview with former Newsday columnist Leonard Levitt, Horowitz explained how prosecutors broke the blue wall of silence and pushed cops to inform on fellow officers. 
"Cops won't volunteer anything. You have to let them know you aren't bluffing," Horowitz, then a federal prosecutor in Manhattan, said in "NYPD Confidential: Power and Corruption in the Country's Greatest Police Force." 
"You have to know where their bank accounts are, where they've hidden their money," Horowitz said. "Then you have to let them know you have the goods." 
As one of the most powerful investigators of the investigators in Washington, those who know and have worked for Horowitz say he stays focused on the facts, no matter how politically unpopular they are.
"I don't believe I ever knew what his political affiliation was. ... I never asked. He didn't know what mine was and he never asked. It didn't matter," said Charles McCullough,  the intelligence community's inspector general under the Obama administration.

FISA report: DOJ watchdog set to release report critical of FBI surveillance of Trump's campaign
Horowitz, who declined to be interviewed, has spent nearly two years examining the FBI's surveillance of Carter Page, at the time a foreign policy adviser to the Trump campaign. The bureau was investigating whether the campaign coordinated with Russia to damage Democratic presidential candidate Hillary Clinton.
The FBI, Trump and practically everyone with a political agenda has a stake in Horowitz's report. 
The FBI has been under attack by the president and his allies since it launched the investigation. Trump has claimed for three years that a cabal of top law enforcement officials, driven by political bias, conspired against him.
Democrats are looking to see how the report affects their momentum as they draft articles of impeachment against Trump.
"Whatever comes out, they will never have a legitimate argument that (Horowitz) didn't do the right thing," said Marietta Robinson, a Michigan lawyer and longtime friend.
'Not a "gotcha" IG'
Horowitz, 57, was born in New York City. His father owned a company that made women's clothing. His mother owned an antiques store. 
He graduated summa cum laude from Brandeis University and magna cum laude from Harvard Law School, where he was executive editor of the Harvard Civil Rights-Civil Liberties Law Review. 
As a young attorney, he clerked for U.S. District Judge John Davies in California. He spent eight years as a federal prosecutor in the Southern District of New York, where he led the Public Corruption Unit.

FISA report: Justice Department praises watchdog's upcoming report on Russia inquiry amid reported criticism by Attorney General Barr
Aside from the "Dirty 30" case, Horowitz led an investigation into immigration officials who accepted more than $100,000 in bribes in return for issuing green cards. 
Horowitz moved to Washington, where he became a high-ranking Justice Department attorney under Republican and Democratic appointees.
In 2011, President Barack Obama nominated him as inspector general for the Justice Department. Horowitz left a lucrative job at a law firm and started in 2012.
During his Senate confirmation hearing, Horowitz described his years as a public corruption prosecutor in New York, where his work didn't always endear him to colleagues. 
“Particularly when we were arresting law enforcement officers who were working on cases in our own office with other units,” Horowitz said. “But I wasn’t interested in winning popularity contests. … I was instructed by the U.S. Attorney to doggedly pursue corruption, to be independent of the other units in the office, and that’s precisely what I did.”
Spying, treason and politics: President Trump ups the stakes in Russia probe battle despite scant evidence
As inspector general, Horowitz approaches his job like a fair-minded prosecutor who puts himself in the shoes of the people he's investigating, McCullough said. 
"He looks at things holistically. He's not a 'gotcha' IG. He's not a Monday-morning quarterback," McCullough said. 
McCullough, an Obama appointee, received blowback from Clinton allies in 2016 after he told lawmakers he believed there was classified material in several dozen emails Clinton exchanged as secretary of state and stored on a private server.
McCullough said he was also criticized by fellow inspectors general who were supportive of Clinton. "But not Michael," he said. "Michael is all about process. He's nonpartisan."
Co-workers say Horowitz's record shows he's nonpartisan
In early 2018, Trump questioned why Horowitz should be the one to investigate the FBI's conduct during the Russia probe. 
"Isn't the IG an Obama guy? the president tweeted. "Why not use Justice Department lawyers? DISGRACEFUL!"
Former co-workers point out that Horowitz has served under Republican and Democratic presidents. They say he can handle politically controversial investigations, like his inquiry into Fast and Furious, a botched Obama-era gun-trafficking operation. 
A report released by Horowitz's office in 2012 portrayed a dysfunctional group of investigators and departments that allowed about 2,000 firearms to fall into the hands of Mexican drug cartels and other criminals.
Horowitz did not conclude that the Justice Department's top leadership knew about the blunders, but he recommended disciplinary action against 14 federal law enforcement officials.
FISA records: FBI releases records on Carter Page surveillance
In a scathing report last year, Horowitz rebuked former FBI Director James Comey for his handling of the Clinton email investigation, but he found no evidence of political bias.
"His leadership has been, let's do the right thing," said Cynthia Schnedar, who was Horowitz's deputy during the Fast and Furious investigation. "Let's investigate fairly but also honestly and accurately and call the shots as the facts are."
Horowitz has two portraits of former attorneys general in his office, according to former colleagues. One is a portrait of William H. H. Miller, who became attorney general in 1889 and left office with his reputation intact. The other is Harry M. Daugherty, who was forced to resign in 1924 amid a bribery scandal.
"Michael would frequently comment on how he had both of these portraits on each side of his desk," said Rob Storch, Horowitz's former deputy and current inspector general of the National Security Agency. "I think the general concept was it covered the gamut of behavior by public officials."

PART 2: Inspector General FISA Investigation President Trump - Senate Hearing
FOX 10 Phoenix
The U.S. attorney who is conducting a wide-ranging investigation of the origins of the Trump-Russia probe released a rare statement Monday saying he disagrees with conclusions of the so-called FISA report -- after DOJ Inspector General Michael Horowitz found in that review that the probe's launch largely complied with DOJ and FBI policies. “Based on the evidence collected to date, and while our investigation is ongoing, last month we advised the Inspector General that we do not agree with some of the report’s conclusions as to predication and how the FBI case was opened,” U.S. Attorney John Durham said in a statement. Horowitz released his report Monday saying his investigators found no intentional misconduct or political bias surrounding efforts to launch that 2016 probe and to seek a highly controversial Foreign Intelligence Surveillance Act (FISA) warrant to monitor former Trump campaign adviser Carter Page in the early months of the investigation. Still, it found that there were "significant concerns with how certain aspects of the investigation were conducted and supervised." “I have the utmost respect for the mission of the Office of Inspector General and the comprehensive work that went into the report prepared by Mr. Horowitz and his staff,” Durham said. “However, our investigation is not limited to developing information from within component parts of the Justice Department.

The Triumphal Entry and the Cleansing of the Temple

WRITTEN ON 19 NOVEMBER 2014.
The Triumphal Entry and the Cleansing of the Temple


According to the New Testament Christ visited Jerusalem’s Temple where he found the courtyard filled with livestock and the tables of money changers or traders. Having made a whip of cords, he then singlehandedly drove all the livestock and the moneychangers from the Temple and forbade anyone to carry anything through it. Scholars seem to accept this version of events seemingly at face value, without questioning how it would have been possible for a single person to confront and effectively overpower so many people, who no doubt would have been rather upset with him. Given that the Temple would most certainly have had guards to maintain order, the unruly Son of God would simply have been thrown out on his ear. The answer to this conundrum is simple – he did not act alone. However, before we discuss the true version of this event, it is necessary to step back to Christ’s arrival in Jerusalem shortly before the cleansing of the Temple, his so-called Triumphal Entry into the city.

The Triumphal Entry and the Donkey King of Israel

When Christ was about to enter Jerusalem, he insisted to ride on a colt that had never been ridden before, most likely in an attempt to fulfil yet another prophecy, that the Messiah would come to his people “lowly, and riding upon an ass, even upon a colt the foal of an ass” (Zechariah 9:9). From a strange narrative in The Acts of Saint Thomas in India it would appear that the colt was not aware of just Who was on his back and unceremoniously threw him off.  In the narrative the apostle Thomas encounters a talkative colt, who informs him that he was a descendant of the colt on which the Lord had entered Jerusalem and subsequently offered him (Thomas) a ride into town. Though unwilling at first, Thomas eventually agreed to participate in this apparent re-enactment of the Lord’s triumphal entry into Jerusalem. When they arrived at the city gates, he [Thomas] ‘threw himself off him [the colt]’ and commanded the colt to proceed on his own. The colt immediately fell down before him and died, and all those who saw it were terrified.

In Barbelo I argue that Christ had adopted the alias Paul of Tarsus sometime after his resurrection, and Paul is known to have fallen to the ground and having been blinded for three days when he supposedly met Christ. The Conversion of Saint Paul paints a vivid picture of the event,

“That is of Paul in whom the conversion was made.… that he was beaten to the earth, he was blind and fasted three days, and was smitten down to the ground for to be raised.…And Saint Austin saith that he was smitten down for to be blind, for to be changed”

Furthermore, according to Arab tradition Paul had a horse called Eagle which he hocked and then repented, suggesting that he had fallen from a lame animal. So, Christ had indeed been thrown off the colt.  The mention of the bystanders in Thomas’ encounter with the talkative colt being ‘terrified’ matches Paul’s companions being ‘speechless.’ One can hardly imagine the anxiety and embarrassment of Christ’s followers when, instead of hailing him as the king of the Jews as he entered Jerusalem, they found themselves staring at their master lying unconscious on the ground.

That Thomas ‘threw himself off the colt’ must have been the feeble excuse Christ’s followers used to explain why he had been thrown off the donkey, suffering severe concussion and temporary blindness, in response to the public ridicule Christ suffered afterwards. For instance, Christ is portrayed as a crucified donkey in the so-called Alexamenos Grafitto, which is inscribed with the words ‘Alexamenos worships god’. A caricature of Christ as a donkey had likewise appeared in the city of Carthage, inscribed with the words ‘The God of the Christians, born of an ass. He had the ears of an ass, was hoofed in one foot, carried a book, and wore a toga’.

The Raid on the Temple
There can be no doubt that when Christ finally awoke and realised that he had become the laughing stock of Israel, he would have been filled with a great, great anger, which resulted in the storming of the Temple:
The Toledot Yeshu relates that Christ had entered the temple with 310 of his followers, hardly the image of a lone Jesus kicking over tables as portrayed in the New Testament. These men would have included Simon Peter and his dagger-men (assassins), also known as Simon bar Gioras’ sicarii.
When Paul (Christ) was seized by the crowd at the temple decades later, he was accused of having brought Greeks into the temple area and having defiled ‘this holy place.’
Epiphanius claims that James wore the breastplate of the high priest and the high priestly diadem on his head and had actually entered the Holy of Holies. Eusebius likewise records that John the Beloved had become a sacrificing priest who wore the mitre, which was the headdress of the high priest. This suggests that Christ and his disciples had robbed these holy items from the Temple.

Demas, one of the two robbers who were crucified with Christ, stole the ‘secret deposit’ of Solomon from the Holy of Holies, an act which Judas blamed on Christ. Christ as Yeshu was indeed accused of robbing the shem hamphoras, the ‘secret name of god’ from the Holy of Holies.

Therefore, there can be little doubt that Christ had defiled the Temple by robbing it of its treasures and holy objects, including the sacred breastplate and diadem, and that he had ordered his followers to enter every chamber of the temple in search of booty. Perhaps
the most telling piece of evidence of the raid on the Temple is its curtain, which was supposedly torn in two by divine action, from top to bottom, when Christ died on the cross. As related in The Infancy Gospel of James, the young Mary had been tasked with weaving the purple part of the Temple curtain and Christ would no doubt have ripped that part off the curtain during the raid.

It wasn’t long after FTW’s closure and Ruppert’s sojourn to Venezuela that director Chris Smith — the man behind documentaries American Movie and The Yes Men — contacted Ruppert to be interviewed for a film. The subject was supposed to be the CIA’s connections to drug smuggling, Smith told Indiewire. But Ruppert didn’t want to talk about the CIA. Instead, he wanted to talk about peak oil, and its critical implications for the future.

Gary Webb’s “Dark Alliance” Returns to the Internet

Dark Alliance- The Story Behind the Crack Explosion
The Dark Alliance logo. Jerry Ceppos called it “too suggestive.”
After an Arduous Journey, the Historic Document About U.S.-Sponsored Narco-Trafficking Finds a New Home
By Dan Feder Special to The Narco News Bulletin June 23, 2005

For the better part of a decade, a San Francisco Bay Area drug ring sold tons of cocaine to the Crips and Bloods street gangs of Los Angeles and funneled millions in drug profits to a Latin American guerrilla army run by the U.S. Central Intelligence Agency, a Mercury News investigation has found.

This drug network opened the first pipeline between Colombia’s cocaine cartels and the black neighborhoods of Los Angeles, a city now known as the crack capital of the world.
– From the introduction to the original Dark Alliance website, August, 1996
The investigative journalism series that started it all – that changed (or at least, at long last, confirmed) the way all of us think about the war on drugs, the CIA, and U.S. policy toward Latin America – has had a troubled life on the Internet.

In August 1996, Gary Webb began publishing the results of a year long investigation that traced the money fueling the horrific U.S.-backed “contra” war against Nicaragua to the profits from Los Angeles’ 1980s crack epidemic. The CIA led its contra army to spend the entire decade terrorizing the Nicaraguan people and their Sandinista government, happily allowing the contras to flood Los Angeles and other North American cities with cocaine to fund their efforts. Gary provided extensively documented evidence that while poor communities in L.A. paid the price of the crack explosion – from rampant addiction in their neighborhoods to oppressive law enforcement and jailing with Reagan’s stepped-up “war on drugs” – the United States government protected the men moving a great deal of the drugs coming into the city. Local dealers faced life sentences while the bigtime narcos from Washington to Managua went free. What came next is well known. Gary’s story, and the website he and the San Jose Mercury News created to showcase and expand upon it, were initially the talk of the global village. Politicians cited the article in both Sacramento and Washington. The CIA launched an internal investigation. Millions of people were visiting the website. But then the backlash came. The L.A. Times, embarrassed at having missed a major story on its own turf, and the New York Times, happy to follow its colleagues’ lead in squashing a story that didn’t fit with its own narrative, wielded their mercenary pens against him. Rather than follow up on his exhaustive research, the attack dogs on both coasts pulled his work apart and attacked him for things he hadn’t even said. Although the CIA’s internal investigation would later confirm many of Gary’s own claims, the paper retracted the story and marginalized Gary to the point where he was forced to quit. San Jose Mercury News executive editor Jerry Ceppos’ cowardly retreat from Dark Alliance included deleting the website, and destroying thousands of undistributed CDROM versions of the site. It was the Internet’s first book burning. Among Ceppos’ lame excuses for the latter was that the now-famous Dark Alliance logo (above; how much more straightforward could a logo for a story about the CIA and crack be?) was “too suggestive.” (Inherent in that statement is that Ceppos’ could not find sufficient fault with Webb’s story itself to censor the website.) And so, for a long time, the most talked-about investigative news story of the 1990s was largely inaccessible to world beyond the small daily’s reach. Even when copies of the text from the published stories were posted on websites and sent out to mailing lists, it was not the same. The Dark Alliance website was truly groundbreaking, one of the first innovations in using the Internet to not just replicate but expand what journalism could be. Rather than remaining static, the articles lived on the website, surrounded by images, sound files, reader discussion forums that Gary participated in, and an entire library of background information supporting Webb’s powerful case against the C.I.A. Millions of readers flocked to these pages, a nearly unheard-of response in those early days of the World Wide Web. Until the end of his life, Gary was immensely proud of this website and its role in expanding the idea of what Internet journalism could be. In 2002, having gotten his hands on one of the few remaining copies of the CD, he triumphantly resurrected it. At that time, Gary wrote: “This site, which won a CNET “Best of the Web” award in 1996, was constructed from a CDROM made by the San Jose Mercury News to promote its Internet presence. Thousands of CDs were made, then quietly incinerated. The reason: the website’s logo—a crack smoker superimposed over the CIA seal—had been criticized as “too suggestive.” Fortunately a few CDs were saved from the flames. Despite the passage of time, this webpage remains a brilliant testament to the power of Internet journalism.” Gary Webb, a hero of authentic journalism, an inspiration to truth-seekers around the world, a friend to all of us at Narco News, but now an unemployable outcast in the world of commercial newspapers, took his own life on December 10, 2004. His resurrected website died with him: the company hosting it was bought out and the files lost.…Almost. Today, Narco News, with support from The Fund for Authentic Journalism, is pleased to announce that the Dark Alliance website has a new, and this time permanent, home at Narco News. Gary’s family found that old, storied, (“priceless to us,” as his ex-wife, Susan Bell, described it to me) CDROM among his possessions. Nine years ago, theMercury News had placed some kind of archaic copy protection on the CD (of the kind that nobody uses anymore because such obsolete cyber-padlocks are so frequently picked), and by the time Gary’s son Ian sent us a copy this historic work was available for public viewing again. The expanded version that Gary posted in 2002 is gone. But the original pages, still bearing the logo of the newspaper that gave birth to and then disowned them, are all there. A few elements from the CDROM have been cleaned up to make the pages easier to navigate, but the content you will see is essentially unchanged from what those millions of first-time readers saw when they logged on nearly a decade ago. As with Gary’s original “director’s cut” version of it, this project is being carried out for educational and historic purposes, and, happily, is in no way connected to, nor sponsored by, the San Jose Mercury News. Narco News will unveil the Dark Alliance website in its new home by publishing these stories in installments, the way they were originally published back in 1996, over the coming week.

"..If we had met five years ago, you wouldn't have found a more staunch defender of the newspaper industry than me ...
I was winning awards, getting raises, lecturing college classes, appearing on TV shows, and judging journalism contests.
So how could I possibly agree with people like Noam Chomsky and Ben Bagdikian, who were claiming the system didn't work, that it was steered by powerful special interests and corporations, and existed to protect the power elite?
And then I wrote some stories that made me realize how sadly misplaced my bliss had been.
The reason I'd enjoyed such smooth sailing for so long hadn't been, as I'd assumed, because I was careful and diligent and good at my job ...
The truth was that, in all those years, I hadn't written anything important enough to suppress ...".. Gary Webb

".. I found myself involved in hours-long conversations with editors that bordered on the surreal.
"How do we know for sure that these drug dealers were the first big ring to start selling crack in South Central?" editor Jonathan Krim pressed me during one such confab. "Isn't it possible there might have been others before them?"


"There might have been a lot of things, Jon, but we're only supposed to deal in what we know," I replied. "The crack dealers I interviewed said they were the first. Cops is South Central said they were the first. and that they controlled the entire market. They wrote it in reports that we have. I haven't found anything saying otherwise, not one single name, and neither did the New York Times, the Washington Post or the L.A. Times. So what's the issue here?"

"But how can we say for sure they were the first?" Krim persisted. "Isn't it possible there might have been someone else and they never got caught and no one ever knew about them? In that case, your story would be wrong."

I had to take a deep breath to keep from shouting. "If you're asking me whether I accounted for people who might never have existed, the answer is no," I said. "I only considered people with names and faces. I didn't take phantom drug dealers into account." ... Gary Webb

Gary Stephen Webb (August 31, 1955 – December 10, 2004)

was an Americaninvestigative reporter best known for his 1996 Dark Alliance series of articles written for the San Jose Mercury News and later published as a book.

In the three-part series, Webb investigated Nicaraguans linked to the CIA-backedContras who had smuggled cocaine into the U.S.


Their smuggled cocaine was distributed as crack cocaine in Los Angeles, with the profits funneled back to the Contras. Webb also alleged that this influx of Nicaraguan-supplied cocaine sparked, and significantly fueled, the widespread crack cocaine epidemic that swept through many U.S. cities during the 1980s. According to Webb, the CIA was aware of the cocaine transactions and the large shipments of drugs into the U.S. by Contra personnel. Webb charged that the Reagan administration shielded inner-city drug dealers from prosecution in order to raise money for the Contras, especially after Congress passed the Boland Amendment, which prohibited direct Contra funding.

Webb's reporting generated fierce controversy, and the San Jose Mercury Newsbacked away from the story, effectively ending Webb's career as a mainstream-media journalist. In 2004 he was found dead from two gunshot wounds to the back of the head, which the coroner's office judged a suicide. Though he was criticized and outcast from the mainstream journalism community,  in 2013 Nick Schou, a journalist writing for the LA Weekly who wrote the book Kill the Messenger, stated that Webb's reportage was eventually vindicated; since his death, for example, both the Los Angeles Times and the Chicago Tribune have defended his "Dark Alliance" series. Esquire wrote that a report from the CIA inspector general "subsequently confirmed the pillars of Webb's findings." Geneva Overholser, who served as the ombudsman for The Washington Post, wrote that major media outlets including the Washington Post had "shown more passion for sniffing out the flaws in the Mercury News's answer than for sniffing out a better answer themselves."


Biography of Gary Stephen Webb
Early life

Webb was born to a military family in Corona, California. At 15 he began writing editorials for his suburban Indianapolis high school newspaper. At the height of the protests against the Vietnam War, he created his first controversy when he criticized the use of a female drill team to rally students for the war. Webb attended journalism school at Northern Kentucky University, where he was on the staff of student newspaper The Northerner, but dropped out. He started his professional career at theKentucky Post, then worked as a statehouse correspondent for The Plain Dealer of Cleveland. Webb found a lifelong passion in investigating government and private sector corruption. In 1988, he joined the San Jose Mercury News as a staff writer. There he helped expose freeway retrofitting problems in the 1989 Loma Prieta earthquake and wrote stories about computer software problems at the California DMV.

Dark Alliance
Series

In August 1996 the San Jose Mercury News published Webb's "Dark Alliance", a 20,000 word, three-part investigative series which alleged that Nicaraguan drug traffickers had sold and distributed crack cocaine in Los Angeles during the 1980s, and that drug profits were used to fund the CIA-supported Nicaraguan Contras. Webb never asserted that the CIA directly aided drug dealers to raise money for the Contras, but he did document that the CIA was aware of the cocaine transactions and the large shipments of cocaine into the U.S. by the Contra personnel.  Per Webb's request, all the documents he used to draw his conclusions were uploaded to the Mercury's website, Mercury Center, for all readers to see. Webb feared that, otherwise, he would be discredited by the government amidst claims of lack of evidence.  "Dark Alliance" received national attention. At the height of the interest, the version on the San Jose Mercury News website received 1.3 million hits a day. According to the Columbia Journalism Review, the series became "the most talked-about piece of journalism in 1996 and arguably the most famous—some would say infamous—set of articles of the decade."  Webb reported that many African Americans who had never connected to the internet before began using the internet to see the coverage of this story.

Webb supported his story with documents obtained through the Freedom of Information Act, subsequently including a 450-page declassified version of an October 1988 report by CIA Inspector General Frederick Hitz. According to Webb and his supporters, the evidence demonstrates that White House officials, including Oliver North, knew about and supported using money from drug trafficking to fund the Contras, and they neglected to pass any information along to the Drug Enforcement Administration. The 1988 report by the Senate Subcommittee on Narcotics, Terrorism and International Operations of theCommittee on Foreign Relations, led by Sen. John Kerry, commented that there were "serious questions as to whether or not US officials involved in Central America failed to address the drug issue for fear of jeopardizing the war effort against Nicaragua."

Immediately, denials began to emerge refuting assertions in "Dark Alliance". Reports in the Washington Post (October 4, 1996), Los Angeles Times, and New York Times (October 21), tried to debunk the link between the Contras and the crack epidemic. Post ombudsman Geneva Overholser agreed with critics that her paper's response to Webb's series showed "misdirected zeal" and "more passion for sniffing out the flaws in San Jose's answer than for sniffing out a better answer themselves."[11] Years later, Richard Thieme argued in an opinion piece that the major news outlets focused on attacking Webb or less relevant parts of the story, leaving Webb's thesis largely intact.[12] Overholser concluded there was "strong previous evidence that the CIA at least chose to overlook Contra involvement in the drug trade ... Would that we had welcomed the surge of public interest as an occasion to return to a subject the Post and the public had given short shrift. Alas, dismissing someone else's story as old news comes more naturally." Esquire wrote that Webb's stories had "copious citation of documents", while the articles from The New York Times used anonymous intelligence officials as sources. The total of theLos Angeles Times reportage criticizing the Dark Alliance exceeded the length of the Dark Alliance itself, and the publication also used anonymous intelligence officials as sources. The Los Angeles Times criticized the notion that the CIA intentionally tried to addict African-Americans on crack cocaine; the Webb articles did not make this assertion. Shelby Coffey, the main editor of the Los Angeles Times, had assigned 17 reporters to expose any errors in Webb's story. 

Robert Parry wrote that the Post's denunciation of Webb was ironic, because the paper "had long pooh-poohed earlier allegations that the Contras were implicated in drug shipments" but now "the newspaper was finally accepting the reality of Contra cocaine trafficking, albeit in a backhanded way."

In response to these attacks, Webb created a web site that contained primary documents, transcripts, and audio interviews. By January 1997, Webb's editors no longer contacted him about his stories. In March, Webb was informed that the paper was going to address the readers about his series. On May 11, 1997, Mercury News executive editor Jerry Ceppos published an editorial describing the series as an "important work" and "solidly documented" but criticized it on four grounds: reliance on one interpretation of complicated, sometimes-conflicting pieces of evidence; failing to estimate the amount of money involved; oversimplifying the crack epidemic; and creating impressions that were open to misinterpretation through imprecise language and graphics.  Webb was reassigned to a suburban bureau 150 miles from his home. Because of the long commute he quit the paper in December 1997.

Webb alleged that the 1997 backlash was a form of media manipulation. "The government side of the story is coming through the Los Angeles Times, the New York Times, the Washington Post", he stated. "They use the giant corporate press rather than saying anything directly. If you work through friendly reporters on major newspapers, it comes off as the New York Timessaying it and not a mouthpiece of the CIA."  In 2004, Webb wrote a long piece, "The Mighty Wurlitzer Plays On", describing the role the Internet played in bringing the "Dark Alliance" story to international attention in 1996, and describing at length the backlash against the story, at first externally through the larger newspapers, later internally by the paper's editors:

James Aucoin, a communications professor who specializes in the history of investigative reporting, wrote: "In the case of Gary Webb's charges against the CIA and the Contras, the major dailies came after him. Media institutions are now part of the establishment and they have a lot invested in that establishment."[17]

Book
In 1999, Seven Stories Press published Dark Alliance: The CIA, the Contras, and the Crack Cocaine Explosion, Webb's book complete with extensive source citations.[19] It received mixed reviews.
The book includes an account of a meeting between a pilot (who was making drug/arms runs between San Francisco and Costa Rica) with two Contra leaders who were also partners with the San Francisco-based Contra/drug smuggler Norwin Meneses. According to eyewitnesses, Ivan Gomez, identified by one of the Contras as a CIA agent, was allegedly present at the drug transactions. The pilot told Hitz that Gomez said he was there to "ensure that the profits from the cocaine went to the Contras and not into someone's pocket."
According to Webb, Judd Iverson, a San Francisco defense attorney who represented former Contra Julio Zavala, discovered compelling evidence demonstrating that "agents of the U.S. government were intricately involved in sanctioning cocaine trafficking to raise funds for Contra revolutionary activity."[20] Soon after, members of the Justice Department persuaded U.S. District Court Judge Robert Peckham to seal the documents in the case.

Critics
Webb's reporting on the CIA's dealings with cocaine dealers was not without its critics. The Nation magazine contributor David Corn, while crediting him that "it is only because of Webb that US citizens have confirmation from the CIA that it partnered up with suspected drug traffickers in the just-say-no years and that the Reagan Administration, consumed with a desire to overthrow the Sandinistas in Nicaragua, allied itself with drug thugs", also criticized Webb for overstating the case and for not proving "his more cinematic allegations."[21]

Reason magazine's Glenn Garvin was critical of Webb's sources and of the evidence he presented. Garvin wrote that Webb's evidence that the Contra leadership was selling cocaine is almost entirely drawn from the claims of a few Nicaraguan traffickers facing long jail terms, and argued that they were using the CIA as a convenient scapegoat. Garvin also wrote that every guerilla group, including the Mujahideen, FARC and Shining Path, has used the narcotics trade as a way of bolstering its funding efforts, and that far from the Contra-related drug trade being widespread it came down to a small handful of Contra pilots and their associates who were involved in narcotics. He also argued that while these covert narcotic relationships were alleged to be most rampant, the Contras had the least need for funds, as the United States was supplying them with millions of dollars a year in support. However, Garvin offers no evidence of his own that directly refutes Webb's documentation, and simply assumes Webb is wrong by relying on second hand mainstream sources. Garvin then states Webb's work is really about "vindicating the American left.""[22]

Supporters and corroboration

according to historian Mark Fenster

[T]he common view among unbiased journalists and researchers who have reviewed Webb's research and have expertise on the Contras and the CIA's role in Nicaragua is that the facts are basically correct and and that Webb was an outstanding journalist. Webb's basic contention that there was a direct connection between the CIA, the Contras, the White House, and cocaine trafficking is supported by Webb's evidence. The historical consensus -- to the extent that such a thing is possible concerning controversial covert operations -- indicate that the basic outlines of the Mercury News stories were largely correct.

In 2006 the Los Angeles Times published The Truth in `Dark Alliance,' written by Nick Schou, in which L.A. Times Managing Editor Leo Wolinsky is quoted saying "in some ways, Gary got too much blame ... He did exactly what you expect from a great investigative reporter." The article surveys mainstream reporting at the time of Webb's pieces and states that while Webb had committed "hyperbole" and included some unproven allegations, articles by the New York Times "didn't include the success he achieved or the wrongs he righted – and they were considerable" according to Walt Bogdanich, now a New York Times editor, who had known Webb earlier.
The LA Times piece criticizes its own portrayal of Webb—"we dropped the ball"—and notes that "spurred on by Webb's story, the CIA conducted an internal investigation that acknowledged in March 1998 that the agency had covered up Contra drug trafficking for more than a decade" and concludes that "History will tell if Webb receives the credit he's due for prodding the CIA to acknowledge its shameful collaboration with drug dealers. Meanwhile, the journalistic establishment is only beginning to recognize that the controversy over 'Dark Alliance' had more to do with poor editing than bad reporting [on Webb's part]".
Writing in 2005 in the Chicago Tribune, about "the Dangers of Questioning Government Actions", Don Wycliff, the Tribune's public editor, wrote, "I still think Gary Webb had it mostly right. I think he got the treatment that always comes to those who dare question aloud the bona fides of the establishment: First he got misrepresented—his suggestion that the CIA tolerated the Contras' cocaine trading became an allegation that the agency itself was involved in the drug trade. Then he was ridiculed as a conspiracy-monger." [25]
Media Critic Norman Solomon's analysis, "The Establishment's Papers Do Damage Control for the CIA", includes various corroborating evidence that an effort to discredit Webb was pursued more vigorously than the truth of some of Webb's allegations, including corroboration internal to one such paper, the Washington Post. Notes Solomon:

The Post's ombudsman, Geneva Overholser, was on target (11/10/96) when she re-raised the question of the U.S. government's relationship to drug smuggling and noted that the three newspapers "showed more passion for sniffing out the flaws in San Jose's answer than for sniffing out a better answer themselves."

Citing "strong previous evidence that the CIA at least chose to overlook contra involvement in the drug trade", Overholser found "misdirected zeal" in the Post's response to the Mercury News series: "Would that we had welcomed the surge of public interest as an occasion to return to a subject the Post and the public had given short shrift."

Investigation timeline
Facing increasing public scrutiny from the fallout after Webb's "Dark Alliance" series, the CIA conducted its own internal investigations. Investigative journalist Robert Parry credits Webb for being responsible for the following government investigations into the Reagan-Bush administration's conduct of the Contra war:

On December 10, 1996, Los Angeles County Sheriff Sherman Block announced the conclusion of his investigation into the issue, publishing a summary of the investigation at a press conference. He announced at the press conference, "We have found no evidence that the government was involved in drug trafficking in South-Central." Nevertheless, the report included information that supported some of the charges. Charles Rappleye reported in the L.A. Weekly that Block's "unequivocal statement is not backed up by the report itself, which raises many questions." Much of the LAPD investigation centered on allegations made in a postscript article to the newspaper's "Dark Alliance" series.
On January 29, 1998, Hitz published Volume One of his internal investigation. This was the first of two CIA reports that eventually substantiated many of Webb's claims about cocaine smugglers, the Nicaraguan Contra movement, and their ability to freely operate without the threat of law enforcement. 
On March 16, 1998, Hitz admitted that the CIA had maintained relationships with companies and individuals the CIA knew were involved in the drug business. Hitz told the House Permanent Select Committee on Intelligence that "there are instances where CIA did not, in an expeditious or consistent fashion, cut off relationships with individuals supporting the Contra program who were alleged to have engaged in drug-trafficking activity or take action to resolve the allegations." Senator Kerry reached similar conclusions a decade earlier in 1987. (See:)
On May 7, 1998, Rep. Maxine Waters, revealed a memorandum of understanding between the CIA and the Justice Department from 1982, which was entered into the Congressional Record. This letter had freed the CIA from legally reporting drug smuggling by CIA assets, a provision that covered the Nicaraguan Contras and the Afghan rebels.
On July 23, 1998, the Justice Department released a report by its Inspector General, Michael R. Bromwich. The Bromwich report claimed that the Reagan-Bush administration was aware of cocaine traffickers in the Contra movement and did nothing to stop the criminal activity. The report also alleged a pattern of discarded leads and witnesses, sabotaged investigations, instances of the CIA working with drug traffickers, and the discouragement of DEA investigations into Contra-cocaine shipments. The CIA's refusal to share information about Contra drug trafficking with law-enforcement agencies was also documented. The Bromwich report corroborated Webb's investigation into Norwin Meneses, a Nicaraguan drug smuggler.
On October 8, 1998, CIA I.G. Hitz published Volume Two of his internal investigation. The report described how the Reagan-Bush administration had protected more than 50 Contras and other drug traffickers, and by so doing thwarted federal investigations into drug crimes. Hitz published evidence that drug trafficking and money laundering had made its way into Reagan's National Security Council where Oliver North oversaw the operations of the Contras. According to the report, the Contra war took precedence over law enforcement. To that end, the internal investigation revealed that the CIA routinely withheld evidence of Contra crimes from the Justice Department, Congress and even the analytical division of the CIA itself. Further, the report confirmed Webb's claims regarding the origins and the relationship of Contra fundraising and drug trafficking. The report also included information about CIA ties to other drug traffickers not discussed in the Webb series, including Moises Nunez and Ivan Gomez. More importantly, the internal CIA report documented a cover-up of evidence which had led to false intelligence assessments.

Aftermath and death
After leaving San Jose Mercury News Webb went to work for the California Assembly Speaker's Office of Member Services and served as a consultant to the California State legislature Task Force on Government Oversight. As a member of the Joint Legislative Audit Committee, Webb investigated charges that the Oracle Corporation received a no-bid contract award of $95 million in 2001 from former California Governor Gray Davis. Webb was hired by the Sacramento News and Review, after being laid off in 2003 with the rest of the former Speaker's staff as part of a house-cleaning when the new Speaker took over.
On December 10, 2004, Gary Webb was found dead from two gunshot wounds to the back of the head.[34] Sacramento Countycoroner Robert Lyons ruled that it was suicide, noting that a suicide note was found at the scene.[34] Webb's ex-wife, Sue Webb (now Sue Stokes) said that Webb had been depressed for years over his inability to get a job at a daily newspaper: Webb continued to write, but financially could not support his family.  He had also had his motorcycle stolen (it was recovered from the thief, a Sacramento local who specialized in grand theft, by his family after his death) and lost his home (due to housing-market crash and his inability to get hired at a 'daily' newspaper) the week prior to his suicide.
In April 2011, a second book-length collection of his articles that span his entire career outside of the Dark Alliance series, entitled The Killing Game: Selected Stories from the Author of Dark Alliance, by Gary Webb and his youngest son, Eric Webb, was released by Seven Stories Press. 

Posthumous recognition 
In 2013, it was announced that a movie would be produced called Kill the Messenger with a Peter Landesman screenplay based on the Dark Alliance series, Webb's 1999 book of the same title, and Nick Schou's book, Kill the Messenger. The movie is to be directed by Michael Cuesta and will star Jeremy Renner as Webb.  The news prompted Scott Herhold, Webb’s first editor at the Mercury-News, to write, "Gary Webb was a journalist of outsized talent. Few reporters I've known could match his nose for an investigative story. When he was engaged, he worked hard. He wrote well. But Webb had one huge blind side: He was fundamentally a man of passion, not of fairness. When facts didn't fit his theory, he tended to shove them to the sidelines." Herhold concluded, "He was no villain ... He was no hero either. Take it from someone who knew him well." Herhold, however, argued with Webb who went over his head drafting a long memo to Herhold's executive editor detailing Herhold's "sins as an editor".  As Susan Paterno notes, while the Mercury News tried to distance itself from Webb once they began to be criticized, all of Webb's editors involved in the Dark Alliance series were eventually promoted and refused to discuss Webb or his work with Paterno in 2005.

​​​​“They’re going to kill me, ladies and gentlemen,” Milton William "Bill" Cooper told the audience. 

“Get ready for it, folks, because that’s what you’re going to be hearing in the next weeks and months on radio and television: Nothing will be the same after today….Because I’ll tell you, ladies and gentlemen, that’s what the people who really did this want you to think, that nothing, nothing, will be the same after today.
“And you know what? They’re right. They’re telling the truth about that. Within weeks the Congress will pass draconian legislation aimed at restricting the rights of American citizens. You’re going to have surveillance cameras on every street corner. You think your phones are being tapped now, just wait.
“No one is going to gain from this except a very small group of people. Everyone else will lose. No one will lose more than the American people.” This would be the most grievous casualty of the 9/11 attacks, Cooper told the audience, the nation itself, the America that could have been.
Freedom, the most elusive of qualities, best distilled in the inspired documents of the Constitution and the Bill of Rights, had been dealt a fatal blow: “From now on, freedom will be whatever the law allows you to do.” That wasn’t going to stop him, Cooper told listeners. He’d stay behind his microphone up in his hilltop studio. He’d keep sending out The Hour of the Time, speaking truth to the ultimate power, if it was the last thing he did. It was soon after that Cooper’s final prediction came true.
“They’re going to kill me, ladies and gentlemen,” he told the audience. “They’re going to come up here in the middle of the night, and shoot me dead, right on my doorstep.”
And, around midnight on November 5th, 2001, less than two months after the 9/11 attacks, that’s exactly what happened.

 the Horowitz Investigation - is looking a lot deeper than what the FISA Report will cover and is looking into the connection between the intelligence community in the USA (the CIA) and the Intelligence communities of friendly nations known as the Five Eyes composed of the USA, Canada, UK, New Zealand, Australia, and their contribution and assistance to try and affect the USA Elections .... who contributed quite a bit 
"...the Horowitz Investigation will reach its apex on the release of the FISA Report ... " ...COREY GOODE
".. and if what I am told is correct, the Grand Jury is already meeting and looking into all of this evidence to see if  the report will for criminal charges and it looks like there will be a number of people referred for criminal charges..."
".. I was told that actual indictments probably would not occur until the spring of 2020 ... there are a number of legal investigations going on ... one by Horowitz and another one ...by John Duram ...who was appointed by the Attorney \general William Barr to investigated the origins of the Russian probe investigation .. the Hillary Clinton Email Scandal and a few other things  .....   things will be dropped in bits and pieces .. when the indictments occur in Spring you would expect things to get pretty crazy ... the Deep State is not going to take that sitting back .... we are going to have to keep an eye out for false flag attacks and other mass destructions .....
A False Flag Attack is " Any procedure which is carried out by an organization and deceitfully designed to seem as though it has been orchestrated by another entity ...
There was a shooing in New Jersy which is rather strange ...
the Democrats do not seem to have a candidate .... and yet it is only a year from the USA Election ...
It is going to shock people .. all the people from religious organizations, police, etc .... when it all comes out .... it's going to be on a massive scale ... it's going to be pretty shocking ... I've been told that one of the things they're are most worried about is civil unrest they're not just expecting civil unrest to occur organically ... they are expecting specialized groups to bear arms against the (Police and Military ... I know that is kind of a major statement ... but if you search around the news ... here and there .. you will find these obscure news stories about weapons caches being located in various places in the United States ... by the USA Federal Authorities .... what they have learned is that there are weapons cashes paid for by people like George Soros ... and other millionaires and billionaires .... that these  Antifa type groups have created stashes of weapons all around .... the most radical members of these groups will receive some sort of a signal on the phone ... or otherwise ... they will show up to a location and be handed out their guns and will be ready .. they will be people wearing masks .... and smash buildings and cars .... their extremely violent people ... 
 (A Hungarian American investor and philanthropist. George Soros was also known as a powerful and influential supporter of Open Society Foundations ) ....
Antifa is short for Anti-Fascists -a broad group of people whose political beliefs lean towards the left ..

Question and response: This does not seem to have anything to do with Democratic or Republican ... there are a lot of dirty people in both political camps that are either being blackmailed or being controlled or have been bribed ...  they're owned basically by the Deep State ... you mention that people are going to be shocked .. but we hope with shows like this  .... we can kind of prepare people for those things ... there are some good people that are trying to take care of these things ... but at the same time, we have to get rid of all the rotten rot on this apple .. I guess you could say ... it aligns with Socialism and it is  Socialism that has been carrying a lot of the Deep State's agendas ..... do you have anything to ass to that?

Answer by  COREY GOODE:  .. yeh ... you hot on it .... it's mostly corruption .. we're finding out that a lot of the federal aid representatives that are employed to arrange international federal aid tell the governments the aid is being paid to .... that the aid billion-dollar aid will be paid as long as a percentage of the aid paid are laundered as a kickback to my family .... that is something that has been done for a while ... and Pelosi's son is involved .. there are some republican children that have family members involved in this type of scheme .. this is why a lot of people are kind of nervous about the Joe Biden information coming out .. it was not just he that was doing that .. there were people in both camps that were doing it and when that all comes out it will be a massive scandal ... "The Corruption and coordination between these criminals is like a template that they have ..." in the governmental level .. but it goes down to civil municipalities .. small towns and cities that have these same structures ... it has infiltrated and handled in very much the same way ...

Alraune- Paperback,  Frank Braun Trilogy
EnglishBy (author)  Hanns Heinz Ewers , Translated by  S Guy Endore , Illustrated by  Mahlon Blaine
Illustrated English translation of Hanns Heinz Ewers' decadent novel, Alraune, the second volume in his Frank Braun trilogy: The Sorcerer's Apprentice, Alraune, and Vampire. Inspired by medieval beliefs in the occult properties of the mandrake root (alraune), which was thought to grow under gallows from the fallen semen of hanged men, an arrogant student, Frank Braun, persuades his vicious uncle, Jacob ten Brinken, to create a child through artificial insemination using sperm from a condemned man and a prostitute as the mother. The child, Alraune, grows into an extremely beautiful but thoroughly perverse young woman with a mysterious power to subject others and to bring riches and ruination. Alraune was first published in German in 1911. This Birchgrove Press edition is based on an English translation published by The John Day Company, New York, in 1929 that was illustrated by Mahlon Blaine.
