News Suppression in Action

News Suppression in Action

by DC Dave

These three items in the weekly Chantilly Times, the first a guest article and the latter two letters to the editor, reveal an alternative technique for denying justice to that employed in the Vince Foster case. In the Foster case, the government version of the truth monopolized the media. Those of us who had looked into the matter and found the government story to be as full of holes as a Swiss cheese were relegated to the Internet.

The government story has even more holes in the case of the “suicide” of Tommy Burkett, whose autopsy, like Foster’s, was performed by Dr. James Beyer. Since Burkett was not a high government official, the authorities, which include the very powerful Washington Post, have been able to get by with a quite straightforward public-be-damned and justice-be-damned approach.

The news suppression in this case has not been total. It has not had to be. As you can see below, the Burkett story was reported nationally on Unsolved Mysteries and the local free weekly, the Chantilly Times (now the Fairfax Times), has covered the story quite thoroughly. This limited coverage and the lack of results it has brought illustrate very well the observation by the late Paul Goodman: “In America, you can say anything you want as long as it has no effect.”

By the way, notice that unlike all other letter writers to the Chantilly Times, “Jack White,” below, does not give his home town.

Burkett family seeks justice, answers

Chantilly Times, June 13, 2002

By Beth George

My son, Tommy Burkett, would be thirty-two years old this Sunday, June 9. On Sunday, December 1, 1991 at 6:12 pm, we returned from a poetry reading and found Tommy’s beaten, lifeless body upstairs in his room. His body was in a state of rigor. We found blood spattered walls in the hallway, the stairwell and downstairs by the backdoor. We found broken plants, an injured dog, and lawn furniture in disarray. Tommy’s wallet, eyeglasses and jacket were missing.

There is no comfort and there is no closure in the death of a child. The most my husband and I could hope for was a thorough investigation to uncover the facts behind an obvious murder, and ultimately, justice.

So far, we have been denied an investigation and our son has been denied justice.

The Fairfax County Police Department has General Orders that must be followed during an investigation. However, these Orders were not followed in Tommy’s case. No yellow police line was erected round the crime scene. The police did not go door-to-door to determine what neighbors had seen and heard. Some neighbors who came outside to offer information were rebuffed by officers on the scene. The police did not fingerprint Tommy’s room or car (which was damaged and was seen in a chase earlier that day). They did not take blood samples from the walls and upholstery upstairs and down. They disposed of Tommy’s damaged, bloody clothing in less than a week, without forensic testing.

Ignoring Tommy’s fractures, abrasions and bruises and signs of a struggle, the police ruled the death a “suicide” by gunshot within minutes of entering our home. They did not remove the alleged fatal bullet from our wall for testing. They did not test our son’s hands for gunpowder. They did not do any ballistics tests on the alleged fatal weapon. The lead investigator, Tom Lyons, disputed the Fire and Rescue official’s statement that Tommy had been dead for several hours when we found his body. Lyons insisted that the death “just happened” and listed time of injury as 6:00 pm. (Remember, Tommy was in a state of rigor when we found him at 6:12. See Fire and Rescue Report on our Website.) Neighbors saw someone driving Tommy’s car up to our house at exactly 5:10 pm, a time when Tommy was already dead.

By 7:05 pm, less than an hour after we found him, Tommy’s body had been removed from our home, and all police vehicles, except one which was parked way down the street, were gone. Neighbors’ statements document this. (Investigator Lyons suggested that we “clean up” the mess. We didn’t. We preserved several areas of the house and paid for the crime scene investigation the police would not give us. The PD has expressed no interest in the information generated.)

In the days that followed, we learned that the night Tommy died, his driver’s license, slit open, was found in the possession of a Marymount University student. According to several witnesses, that student assaulted and threatened Tommy on November 16, 1991 at the Marymount campus in Arlington. Marymount officials did not contact the Arlington police, although the school’s literature states that police must be contacted when an assault occurs on campus. We also learned that some persons at Marymount were aware of Tommy’s death before we found his body. The Fire and Rescue report listed our son as an “unknown” white male, aged 21. The Medical Examiner report was signed under a forged signature, according to a handwriting analyst. The ME report, which stated cause of death and manner of death, was dated December 1, 1991, with a “2” handwritten over the “1”; however, an autopsy was not done on until December 3.

A Fairfax County police officer and other personnel told me their computers showed that Tommy had called 911 twice on December 1, and another person had also called, giving our address and asking for assistance. The Department has stated (on tape and in writing) that these 911 tapes were erased.

For eighteen months, the FCPD refused to tell us the names of the officers who came to our home on December 1, 1991. We eventually learned their names, and we have posted them, along with documentation of the above statements, on our Website at http://www.thepacc.org for public reference. We posted the names because the way Tommy’s case was handled is not a reflection on the many fine officers in FCPD. It is a reflection on the officers involved in the case. We want the public to know exactly which officers are responsible.

We filed fifteen formal complaints against those officers for not following the Department’s General Orders. In addition, we submitted supporting evidence, including notarized statements by neighbors attesting to the fact that the police had not gone door-to-door and had not taken statements, even though Tom Lyons told his superiors that he had.

The Department “investigated” our complaints by sending Officer William Whildin, who had only a few weeks left to serve before retiring, into our community. He knocked on doors and stated emphatically that he was not investigating Tommy’s death; he was there only to determine whether the neighbors had actually signed the notarized statements we submitted. We were never contacted by Officer Whildin. Oddly, the FCPD has repeatedly tried to call Whildin’s two-hour neighborhood visit two years after Tommy was killed, a “thorough” death investigation.

The Department’s written policy is that persons submitting formal complaints will receive written responses. We are still waiting.

In 1994, Attorney General Janet Reno, after receiving a petition with over 4,000 signatures, plus letters from concerned legislators, directed the FBI to investigate the way Tommy’s case was handled. Months passed, and we heard nothing. I called and left a message. A week later, the investigating agent returned the call. He was so hostile, I decided to tape him. He stated as many as a dozen times that he would not investigate my son’s death. Portions of the audiotape are posted on our Website. He dragged the investigation out for 20 months, never once talking to the alleged subject of the investigation, Officer Tom Lyons of FCPD. The FBI never examined the alleged fatal bullet or the alleged fatal weapon. The FBI did not dispute the handwriting analysis indicating that someone other than the Medical Examiner signed the ME Report, but a Supervisory agent informed us that the forgery did not matter. Oddly, the FBI has frequently cited their “investigation,” which was not a death investigation, as support of the FCPD’s suicide ruling. Even more odd is the fact that the FBI told my husband and me that way the FCPD investigation handled the case was fine.

When a national police force says it is okay for public officials to ignore evidence, dispose of and destroy evidence, erase 911 tapes in cases where a death occurred, fabricate interviews which never occurred, put false information on official documents, forge signatures on official documents, refuse to gather evidence and refuse to follow their own written General Orders for processing a crime scene, we have a serious problem. My husband and I were not surprised by the recent revelations by FBI whistleblower, Colleen Rowley. We’ve seen the FBI look the other way and ignore evidence before.

We are still waiting for an investigation and we are still waiting for justice for Tommy. There is plenty of evidence. As one Marymount student told Unsolved Mysteries, “Everyone knows who killed him.”

Time for Burkett family to move on

Chantilly Times

June 20, 2002

I feel compelled to write in response to the latest article written about Tommy Burkett (“Burkett family seeks justice, answers,” The Times, June 6). In the dozen years since the death of this young man, there have been several articles written by his mother concerning errors made by the police and FBI. I read the first story with interest but found every one thereafter to be a rehash of the first.

While it is unfortunately true that the FBI and the local police have their share of people working for them who are not as dedicated as we would wish, they would gain nothing from keeping the truth from the family of Tommy Burkett.

The FBI certainly has better things to do than to punish this family by withholding information.

The death of a child is a horror no parent should have to face. Though I have not been forced to endure that particular challenge, I have weathered personal loss and disappointment in my life. But I’ve been careful not to allow my struggles to define me.

I believe this family has chosen to remain locked inside the most horrible moment of their lives. After 12 years, they are still beating up on the FBI and local police for an event that has been’ thoroughly investigated. There simply was no crime.

Since they are raising a young child in their home, I wonder if their time wouldn’t be better spent celebrating Tommy’s short life instead of dwelling so morbidly on his unfortunate death.

It’s time to get rid of all the “evidence” they still have, and maybe they should remove the black bunting they have kept on their house for the past dozen years.

Now is the time to reflect and remember those moments in Tommy’s life that showed what a unique young man he was. Now is the time to move on. I wish this family peace.

I would like to thank you for continuing to keep the public informed of the basic facts related to the mysterious, violent death of Marymount College student Tommy Burkett in his home in Chantilly Highlands December 1991.

Even though I like to think that I am somewhat better informed on current events than the average person, had it not been for your newspaper I would have been very surprised to learn about this case so close to my home, with its apparent misconduct by the police and the autopsy doctor, when it appeared on the national network program, “Unsolved Mysteries,” in November 1994.

That program left us with the encouraging note that the FBI had entered the case and would be conducting a “civil rights” investigation. “Unsolved Mysteries” had no follow-up, however, and it was only from your newspaper (and now the Burkett parents’ Web site) that the public was able to learn that the FBI conducted what appears to be a whitewash.

Given the paucity of news about the case, I was surprised to see the attack on Tommy’s mother in your letters section by Jack White for her continued efforts to obtain justice. Mr. White implies that local government officials and the FBI have behaved properly, but one must wonder how he could possibly know that. Their refutation of the evidence presented by the Burketts, to my knowledge, has not been reported anywhere.

Mr. White’s gratuitous grand-parenting advice that Tommy’s mother should “move on” seems to be based on nothing more than blind faith in the incapability of government officials to behave in a corrupt manner. When our media watchdogs, with the one notable exception of The Times, demonstrate the sort of inattention that they have in this instance, corruption is not impossible; it is inevitable.

Addendum

The tragedy for the Burkett family came to mind this past week as I watched the ESPN “30 for 30” documentary about the Hillsborough disaster  (see below)

* Update 5/3/14: Video was removed*

The words of producer/director Daniel Gordon demonstrate the connection between the Burketts and those whose family members were crushed to death at a soccer stadium in England in 1989:

I was well aware of the suffering of the bereaved and the survivors, but I was staggered to learn first-hand of the indignity endured by the families on the night of the disaster after they had traveled to identify their loved ones. I cried during the interviews — and I still cry at each viewing.

Hillsborough-the-Sun-top-story-2The casualties, the film notes with great poignancy, went far beyond those who were killed and injured on the scene. The crushing feeling of continuing injustice also took an actual physical toll on family and loved ones as the victims themselves were blamed by the authorities and by the news media for what happened to them. I have seen the look of those interviewed family members many times in the faces of Tom Burkett, Sr., and the mother, Beth George. Unfortunately, I will never get to see the great, liberating look of vindication that one now sees on the faces of the family members, as it now appears that the full truth of Hillsborough is finally coming out. Not too long after Beth George wrote her letter to the Chantilly Times she died of a rather fast acting cancer. A couple of years afterward, her husband died similarly.

CasolaroDanny

Danny Casolaro

There is one big difference between Hillsborough and the Burkett case. In Hillsborough, culpability began at the local level and the media and the higher authorities then participated in the cover-up. In the interview of the Burketts by journalist Christopher Ruddy to which I refer in “Double Agent Ruddy Reaching for Media Pinnacle” Beth George told us she had noticed signs of almost panicky distress in her son upon the news of the suspicious “suicide” death of Fairfax County free-lance writer Danny Casolaro. Only after Tommy’s death did she learn that he had been persuaded to act as an informant for the federal Drug Enforcement Administration (DEA) to escape prosecution for a marijuana bust. She also later learned that he had discovered and reported upon illicit drug transactions that reached into very “respectable” circles and, doubtless in her mind, resulted in his murder and the cover-up of his murder. As book reviewer Jon Roland suggests, we will not see family vindication in either the Casolaro or Burkett cases and countless others until the corrupt secret government and media “Octopus” that killed them is itself slain and its tentacles dissected.

Maybe its just my wishful thinking, but some Americans may be waking up to the fact that they are crooks and liars being strung along by Jewish interests:

Two-out-of-three voters (67%) view the federal government today as a special interest group that looks out primarily for its own interests. Just 17% disagree, while 15% are undecided.

Only 19% now trust the federal government to do the right thing most or nearly all the time, down from 24% in June of last year. Eighty percent (80%) disagree, with 44% who trust the government to do the right thing only some of the time and 36% who say it rarely or never does the right thing.

Now, if they will simply put a name with these “special interests”.

AP Gives Alien Smugglers “Infomercial”

AP Gives Alien Smugglers “Infomercial”

by DC Dave

misdisinformed

The American public can increasingly be broken down into two groups of people, the uniformed and the misinformed. The members of the latter group are the regular consumers of what is put out as “news” by the mainstream “news” media. I offer as Exhibit A a devious little piece widely distributed by the Associated Press this past week that deals with the very important issue of illegal immigration. It bore this title, “NC farmers lead country on legal foreign workers.”

And I do mean that it was widely distributed and with the same title wherever it appeared. From my observations, I get the impression that news organs generally exercise their own discretion when it comes to putting a title on a piece that they get from the AP or whatever outside source they might use. That certainly wasn’t the case this time. Please take a few seconds at this point to copy and paste the name of the article into the “search” box of whatever search engine you might prefer, Google, Yahoo, Bing, etc. Page after page of the same article with the same headline comes up from all over the country. The people at News Central apparently weren’t taking any chances with this one.

We like to think that our newspapers and TV stations are all individual entities making their own choices as to what they report as news and how they report it. This little episode certainly gives the lie to that.   You can see where the story is going from the first two paragraphs:

AWRALs a push to change U.S. immigration laws stalls, North Carolina farmers have proven adept at legally bringing thousands of temporary agricultural laborers into the United States using a specialized visa program.

The North Carolina Growers Association is the largest single user of what’s commonly called the H-2A guest worker program, which allows farmers to hire foreign workers for up to 10 months annually. It secured permission to bring nearly 8,700 workers into the country during the year ending on Sept. 30, 2012, according to statistics compiled by the U.S. Department of Labor.

Touting Alien Smugglers

logo“What a wonderful idea and what a great organization!” those misinformed consumers of the piece are supposed to conclude. What they wouldn’t know because neither the AP nor anyone else in the mainstream press reported it except WRAL-TV in Raleigh, NC, and the Fayetteville (NC) Observer is that this is the same North Carolina Growers Association (NCGA) whose director and daughter were indicted on January 31 of this year on 41 counts of fraud by a federal grand jury for abuse of the H-2B program for non-agricultural foreign guest workers. Had they read my February 14 article, “Has Obama Gone Bulworth on Alien Smuggling” they would also know that this was an indictment that was long overdue and that everything that has been charged with respect to the director, Stan Eury’s, abuse of the H-2B program could be charged of the NCGA many times over with respect to the H-2A program, the guest worker arrangement that happens to be the subject of the AP’s bouquet to the NCGA.

For a quarter of a century the “largest farm labor contractor in the country,” described by an internal state memo in North 5118ff2326cac.preview-300Carolina as the impresario of “the largest alien smuggling ring in our nation’s history” according to Mother Jones magazine, has operated with impunity.

That is how we begin our article, and the alien smuggling ring that they’re talking about is none other than the AP’s wonderful NCGA. What we really can gather from this AP bonbon to the NCGA is that immigration is a very big issue, because it is on the big issues, whether they be the “global war on terror,” Israel, or assassinations, that the mainstream press is most likely to resemble the old Soviet Union’s Pravda and tell us really big lies. Speaking of Pravda, let’s skip down to paragraphs four, five, and six of the AP article:

However, even its supporters describe the model as the best of several expensive options.

“In most parts of the country, farmers are still figuring a way to eke by,” said Lee Wicker, deputy director of the North Carolina Growers Association. “And when they can’t, they look at the H-2A program. I’m famous for telling farmers … if you’ve got any other way to harvest your crops, H-2A should be your last resort. It’s cumbersome, it’s expensive.”

The immigration debate puts farmers in a political and economic predicament. Those who grow labor-intensive crops rely on short-term workers to plant and harvest, often employing migrant laborers from Mexico and Central America who are in the United States illegally. Growers say U.S. workers will not take the jobs at existing wages.

stanoutleeinNotice who’s being quoted here and who has been airbrushed out of the NCGA picture as if it were a Politburo reviewing stand at the May Day parade on Red Square. You’d think they’d want to talk to the director of the NCGA instead of his deputy, but that would be the indicted Stan Eury. Reading this article like a Kremlin watcher, I’d say that the NCGA’s future still looks bright because of the yeoman’s job it has done for the globalist agenda, bringing tomorrow’s illegal aliens in as “guests” through the front door while making a big show of locking up the other doors and the windows. For the deleted Eury, on the other hand, things look less bright. The deletion suggests that he is now damaged goods and is likely to be discarded.

The heir apparent to the ring, from the quote that he apparently got the reporter to take at face value, would seem to have what it takes to step into the Eury shoes. Could anyone possibly believe that he would actually try to talk farmers out of using his very expensive service like that? My contact within North Carolina’s Employment Security Commission (ESC) where this man Lee Wicker, like Stan Eury, got his start tells me that Wicker, as a parting shot before leaving to join the NCGA, did his best to get the contact fired by writing a letter to superiors with trumped-up charges against the contact. The latter’s big offense was that he did not exactly smile with favor upon the NCGA’s abusive practices.

It was this ESC contact who first alerted me to the indictment of Eury. He had seen it announced on the mid-day news on WRAL television from Raleigh. Their article about it, as of this writing, is still on their web site. Interestingly, their site was one of the first that came up when I searched the title of the AP article, but, just like all the others, they made no connection to the standing indictment of the NCGA’s Eury. It was not from WRAL that my contact discovered this new article, though. He is also a regular reader of Eastern North Carolina’s leading newspaper, the Raleigh News and Observer. The day after WRAL announced the Eury indictment, he was expecting to read about it over the breakfast table in the News and Observer. He didn’t then and he hasn’t since. The News and Observer has blacked it out. Now, instead, they publish this NCGA promotion piece.

Not Remotely True

human_smuggling

I asked my contact to write up his reaction to it, and here is what he sent me:

After 20 years of fluff pieces on the North Carolina Growers’Association (NCGA) the Raleigh News and Observer has finally lapsed into full-fledged infomercial mode.  Any farmer reading today’s piece of “news” would have come away with the following: (1) Hiring legal farm labor is absolutely impossible.  (2) Hiring illegal farm labor is risky. (3) The ONLY option for hiring legal farm labor is through NCGA using the H-2A visa program. (4) He can get the same workers year after year because NCGA has miraculously been able to identify a subset of Mexicans who have no interest in staying on in this country, even as their fellow Mexicans risk their lives daily to come here.

The only problem is that none of the 4 items listed is even remotely true.  Farmers can choose from any number of associations using the H-2A visa program in North Carolina.  The largest agricultural employer in the state, Zelenka Nursery, uses legal workers exclusively from the local Wilson area as well as seasonal workers from Texas.  No North Carolina agricultural employer has paid a significant penalty for using illegals in recent memory. NCGA has a history of filing orders for REPLACEMENT workers because so many have abandoned their assigned employers.  Of course, the authors of today’s infomercial managed to omit all this just as the entire staff of the News and Observer managed to miss the 41-count human trafficking indictment of NCGA executive director, Stan Eury, and his daughter 2 months ago.

The News and Observer could hardly be doing a better job of promoting NCGA, what with the timing of today’s infomercial as the growing season begins, if they were on paid retainer.  Hey, maybe I just solved the ongoing mystery of how a daily periodical manages to stay in business as both readership and advertising revenue continue to shrink.

Indeed, one has to wonder how the AP could have written anything different if they were paid handsomely to write the strongest advertisement for the NCGA that they could possibly devise, and with the broadest possible distribution. It’s actually quite a bit better for the NCGA than any advertisement could ever be because it is masquerading as news. People will tend to believe that it must be factual.

The AP’s Agenda

peoplechasmA stronger possibility, to my mind, is that the AP, as the bell cow of the mainstream media, simply has an agenda, and that is the globalist agenda to fractionalize and Balkanize the American population to the maximum extent possible through the promotion of ever greater immigration by any means possible. As I said in “H-2A Kingpin Stumbles on H-2B,” Stan Eury “has perhaps done more than any one person to change the ethnic makeup of this country over the past quarter century.” It is through the operation of the NCGA that he has done so, and the AP has rewarded the organization for it by keeping quiet about Eury’s indictment. By doing so, they show that they are, at bottom, not a news agency but a propaganda agency. They remove all doubt that that is what they are by spreading this latest piece around.

Further evidence of the AP’s agenda is to be found in their article of December 1, 2013, entitled “In Florida, Puerto Ricans want equality back home.” Just as much as this week’s article is a promotion for the illegal-immigration-expediting NCGA, that article is an unvarnished promotion for statehood for the Spanish-speaking, Latin-cultured island of Puerto Rico. You can read about it in “Associated Press Pushes for Statehood for Puerto Rico.” And because we can hardly sound the warning too much, I conclude this article with the same two poems with which I concluded that one:

The Grand Design

What are our rulers up to?

What is their ultimate goal,

That they’d freely get rid of our melting pot

And give us a salad bowl?

 

They don’t want us strong and united,

The land of the brave and the free;

They want us in thrall to our global masters,

A polyglot peasantry.dc062413a

 

Mexico North

Here is the plan linguistic:

A modern-day Tower of Babel.

It goes with the plan economic:

Elite using downtrodden rabble.

Clap For The Wolfman

By which I mean, does  anyone want to give him Gonorrhea?

On Sept 11, Wolfie was the first to tell Pentagon officials that Iraq probably had something to do with it and began pressuring them to find some sort of connection (to justify the upcoming invasion).

Wolfie was the first person to suggest “ending states who sponsor terrorism” (3 days after 911).

Wolfie was the main person pushing for an attack on Iraq to eliminate the non-existing “weapons of mass destruction”.

Wolfie said (after invading Iraq): “I think all foreigners should stop interfering in the internal affairs of Iraq.”

Wolfie was one of the main characters of PNAC

A very interesting person, Tom Kimmel, wrote this criminal a letter worth reading defending his Grandfather who was railroaded with blame for the Pearl Harbor False Flag that FDR used to take America into WWII for the Jews.

Anonymous CIA Official Dies Violently

Anonymous CIA Official Dies Violently

by DC Dave

entry-wound

What has this noble experiment of a supposed self-governed people come to? A little less than a year ago a member of our secret police, the FBI, fatally gunned down a witness in the extremely high profile Boston bombing case in a fusillade of bullets after hours of questioning. Completely predictably it was recently announced that the killer will not be punished for shooting Ibragim Todashev to death in his own apartment. Not only will the FBI agent enjoy immunity from prosecution, but he (assuming it’s a man) apparently will also enjoy immunity from identification. We have never even been told the killer’s name, and our wonderful Fourth Estate seems to be perfectly okay with that. I have yet to see the first peep of protest about the blatant government secrecy, much less about the extrajudicial execution.

101048963-miriamMore recently, Capitol Police officers and Secret Service agents gunned down a woman driving a car in Washington, DC, with her 1-year-old daughter in the car with her. She was killed with one shot to the head, three to the back, and one to the arm. None of the shooters has been identified, but they have all been on leave for their actions since October 3 of last year when the shooting occurred.

Now they’ve ratcheted up the secrecy another notch. This time it’s the victim himself, one of the members of their own clandestine community, who will apparently not be identified. The headline was “CIA Official Dies in Apparent Suicide,” with the sub-headline of “Death did not take place at CIA headquarters.” The writer was Bill Gertz on a web site known as The Washington Free Beacon.

Gus Weiss

Gus Weiss

We have seen and reported upon this sort of muted and delayed reporting upon the suspicious death of a person with intelligence connections before. First, back in 2000, it was John Millis, the staff director of the House Intelligence Committee, who they said shot himself to death in a motel room in Fairfax. Then there was Gus Weiss in 2003, security adviser to several presidents, who reportedly jumped to his death from a balcony of the Watergate apartments where he lived.

The reporting on the Millis death was so strange and spook-like itself that it prompted us to write an article called “Reading between the Washington Lines,” which we reproduce below. This new death report is so similar that we have decided to give it the same sort of treatment:

Reading between the Washington Lines II

 

CIA Official Dies in Apparent Suicide

Death did not take place at CIA headquarters

Washington Free Beacon, April 4, 2014, 11:46 pm, Bill Gertz

A senior CIA official has died in an apparent suicide this week from injuries sustained after jumping off a building in northern Virginia, according to sources close to the CIA.

WHATEVER HAPPENED TO THE BASIC JOURNALISTIC QUESTIONS? WHO WAS IT? WHERE DID IT HAPPEN? WHEN, EXACTLY, DID IT HAPPEN? DID THE POLICE RULE THAT IT WAS A SUICIDE? IF SO, ON WHAT BASIS DID THEY DO SO?

CIA spokesman Christopher White confirmed the death and said the incident did not take place at CIA headquarters in McLean, Va.

CIA_seal_reg.0

WELL, AT LEAST WE’VE RULED OUT ONE PLACE WHEN IT COMES TO THE “WHERE.” SO THE CIA SPOKESMAN CONFIRMED THE DEATH, BUT HOW DID THE REPORTER LEARN OF IT, HOW IS IT THAT HE IS THE ONLY REPORTER WHO SEEMS TO HAVE LEARNED OF IT, WHY THE DELAYED REPORTING, AND WHY THE SECRECY ABOUT THE PERSON’S IDENTITY?

“We can confirm that there was an individual fatally injured at a facility where agency work is done,” White told the Washington Free Beacon. “He was rushed to a local area hospital where he subsequently died. Due to privacy reasons and out of respect for the family, we are not releasing additional information at this time.”

THEY’RE GETTING WARMER WITH RESPECT TO THE “WHERE,” BUT BECAUSE THEY HAVE SAID THAT IT WAS “AT A FACILITY WHERE AGENCY WORK IS DONE” MEANS THAT THEY WILL NEVER VOLUNTEER WHERE IT HAPPENED BECAUSE THEY WILL NEVER TELL US WHERE ANY SUCH FACILITY IS. WHO KNOWS? IT COULD BE THE GANNETT BUILDING OR SOME OTHER MEDIA WORKPLACE, MAYBE EVEN THE REPORTER’S OWN HANGOUT.

THE “PRIVACY CONCERNS” AND THE “RESPECT FOR THE FAMILY” ARE, OF COURSE, PURE HOKUM. MIGHT THIS PERSON NOT HAVE FRIENDS AND RELATIVES WHO WOULD WANT TO PAY THEIR RESPECTS AT A FUNERAL? HOW COULD THEY DO THAT IN THE ABSENCE OF A PUBLIC DEATH ANNOUNCEMENT? THEY ALSO USED THIS “RESPECT FOR THE FAMILY” GAMBIT TO TRY TO SHAME US AWAY FROM THE VINCE FOSTER CASE, TOO, PROMPTING ME TO WRITE THE FOLLOWING POEM:

SOLICITUDE

DON’T YOU THINK THAT THE FAMILY HAS SUFFERED ENOUGH?

WHY MUST YOU STIR UP THIS MESS?

HE WASN’T CONSTRUCTED OF VERY STRONG STUFF.

HE COULDN’T PUT UP WITH THE PRESS.

 

HE COULD NOT HAVE BEEN WHAT HE SEEMED TO BE.

HE COULD NOT HAVE BEEN VERY STABLE.

THAT HE MIGHT HAVE BEEN KILLED FOR HIS HONESTY

IS JUST A ROMANTIC FABLE.

 

WE’LL FIGHT FOR HIS RIGHT TO BE OFF IN THE HEAD.

WHAT DO YOU MEAN, WE OFFEND YOU?

IF YOU SHOULD TURN UP MYSTERIOUSLY DEAD,

THIS IS HOW WE WOULD DEFEND YOU.

 

22802CIAolson_inner

MAYBE SOMEONE IN THE FAMILY COULD BE LIKE ERIC OLSON, THE SON OF FRANK OLSON, THE CIA MAN WHO THE CIA SAID JUMPED TO HIS DEATH FROM A BUILDING IN NEW YORK IN 1953. THE OLSON FAMILY HAS SINCE PRETTY WELL ESTABLISHED THAT A CONSCIENCE SMITTEN FRANK OLSON WAS MURDERED BY HIS EMPLOYERS.

A source close to the agency said the man who died was a middle manager and the incident occurred after the man jumped from the fifth floor of a building in Fairfax County.

WHY CAN’T THE AGENCY, ITSELF, TELL US THIS? WHAT, EXACTLY, IS A “SOURCE CLOSE TO THE AGENCY,” ANYWAY? ONE THING WE CAN SAY IS THAT, LIKE THE VICTIM, THE SOURCE IS ANONYMOUS. AT LEAST WE NOW KNOW THAT THE VICTIM WASN’T A WOMAN AND THAT IT WAS IN FAIRFAX COUNTY, BUT THAT “MIDDLE MANAGER” TAG SOUNDS LIKE IT’S THROWN IN TO SUGGEST THAT THIS WAS A PERSON OF LITTLE CONSEQUENCE.

Many agency employees are known to work under stressful conditions and high stress is considered a part of the profession, for the three general types of employees: Intelligence analysts and support personnel, technical services operators, and members of the clandestine services, the agency’s elite spying branch.

SHADES OF THE VINCE FOSTER CHARADE. GERTZ WANTS US TO BELIEVE THAT THE MAN KILLED HIMSELF ON Vince_Foster_grave_IMG_1511ACCOUNT OF STRESS, BUT LOTS OF JOBS ARE STRESSFUL AND PEOPLE DON’T USUALLY KILL THEMSELVES ON ACCOUNT OF IT. AND WHEN THEY DO, WE ARE TOLD WHO THEY ARE.

MAY WE ASSUME BY A PROCESS OF ELIMINATION THAT SPOOK JOURNALISTS FALL UNDER THE “CLANDESTINE SERVICES” CATEGORY?

The CIA is known to operate or rent space in a number of semi-secret locations in the country, including at least one high-rise building in Tysons Corner.

REALLY? WHICH ONE IN TYSONS CORNER, THE BOOZ, ALLEN, HAMILTION BUILDING?

The agency also operates a number of top-secret facilities used by its clandestine service officers, including agency safe houses.

A VERY LARGE NUMBER, I GATHER.

No other details of the death could be learned.

THAT’S ALL THE AGENCY IS PUTTING OUT THROUGH ITS MOUTHPIECE, GERTZ.

The agency is currently engaged in a high profile dispute with the Senate Select Committee on Intelligence.

Sen. Diane Feinstein (D., Calif.), chairman of the Senate Select Committee on Intelligence, has said the CIA has blocked efforts by the committee to investigate harsh interrogation of terrorists.

Committee staff members working at a CIA facility in Northern Virginia to investigate agency interrogation practices also 5j3sl40j5t0rve5o2ue2rtqza.300x300x1have charged that the CIA covertly searched the agency’s computers that were being used in the investigation.

The agency subsequently reported that several Senate staff members had improperly and possibly illegally removed classified material from the CIA. The FBI was asked to investigate the mishandling of classified information in the case.

The agency is under pressure from Congress to declassify a 6,000-page report on agency interrogation techniques, including waterboarding, used to glean information from al Qaeda terrorists captured after the 2001 attacks on Washington and New York.

The agency also this week came under scrutiny from the House Permanent Select Committee on Intelligence over the agency’s role in obscuring the facts surrounding the Sept. 11, 2012 terrorist attack on the U.S. diplomatic compound in Benghazi, Libya.

Former CIA Deputy Director Michael Morrell told the committee that agency analysts concluded that a protest took place in advance of the attack that killed four Americans, including U.S. Ambassador to Libya Christopher Stevens.

Morrell testified that “subsequent information revealed this judgment to be incorrect.”

The CIA was operating a facility in Benghazi with a large number of agency personnel whose activities had not been made public.

Speculation about the CIA annex in Benghazi has focused on the agency’s role in supplying weapons to Libyan militias that in turn were shipping the arms to Islamist rebels in Syria.

ALL OF THE FOREGOING IS INTERESTING, BUT WHAT IT LIKELY MEANS IS THAT THIS PERSON’S DEATH HAD NOTHING TO DO WITH THE SENATE’S INVESTIGATION OF THE CIA’S INTERROGATION TACTICS OR THE HOUSE’S INQUIRY ABOUT BENGHAZI. MAYBE IT’S RELATED TO THE DISAPPEARED MH-130 OR SOME NEW FALSE FLAG ATTACK THEY’RE PLANNING TO SPRING ON US?

Bill Gertz

Bill Gertz

Going back to that original “Between the Washington Lines” story, the first thing we notice is that the same reporter, Bill Gertz, wrote both articles in question. I think I see a pattern developing. Back then he was working for the “conservative” Washington Times, ostensibly owned and handsomely subsidized by the Reverend Sun Myung Moon’s Unification Church, for some unknown reason. The newspaper has never paid its way from the first week of publication. Now Gertz is somehow gaining a livelihood from a website that has no apparent way of earning money. A day after Gertz broke the story in The Washington Free Beacon, The Washington Times picked it up, but it added nothing to it. It’s just Gertz’s story with his same byline. The New York Daily Newsat least put its own reporter’s name on the story, but all he did was to give us a trimmed down version of Gertz’s report.

IrvingKristol

The editor-in-chief of The Washington Free Beacon is the son-in-law of neocon William Kristol, the editor of the Weekly Standard, another “conservative” publication that has never paid its way and has therefore needed a sugar daddy to lend his name for ownership and money-losing purposes, Rupert Murdoch in this case. Yes, indeed, I do think I see a pattern developing. To complete the picture blending spook propaganda and reporting on odd spook deaths, do an Internet search for “Irving Kristol CIA” and see what comes pouring forth. Irving was William’s father and virtual godfather of the neoconservative movement. Maybe you should save that search until after you’ve finished this article. It’s all so interesting and educational that you might never get back to what you’re reading here.

Reading between the Washington Lines

 Spy panel director who killed himself was under a probe

Washington Times, front page, June 28, 2000, Bill Gertz

The staff director of the House Intelligence Committee who killed himself June 4 was under investigation by the committee, which oversees the U.S. government’s most sensitive secrets, The Washington Times has learned.

WATCH OUT WHEN THEY BEGIN A STORY WITH XYZ NEWS ORGAN “HAS LEARNED.” IT USUALLY MEANS AN OFFICIAL STORY HAS BEEN PLANTED WITH THEM, THOUGH IT DECEPTIVELY CONJURES UP THE IMAGE OF AN AGGRESSIVE NEWSHOUND FERRETING OUT SECRETS.

John Millis, 47, a former CIA operations officer who had been placed on administrative leave by the committee, was found dead at the Breezeway Motel in Fairfax City, Va., Police Chief Doug Scott said. Police ruled he died from a self-inflicted gunshot wound.

IS THE CHIEF TELLING US THAT MILLIS HAD BEEN PLACED ON ADMINISTRATIVE LEAVE AS THE PASSAGE IMPLIES, OR IS HE JUST TELLING US THAT HE WAS FOUND DEAD AT THIS CHEAP HOTEL? GIVEN THE AMBIGUITY HERE, IT IS PROBABLY THE LATTER, WHICH COULD WELL MEAN THAT THIS STORY IS BEING PLANTED BY THE KILLERS THEMSELVES. DOES THIS REMIND ANYONE OF THE EARLY STORIES FROM ANONYMOUS SOURCES ABOUT VINCE FOSTER’S “DEPRESSION?” AND BY THE WAY, WHEN DID THE POLICE MAKE THEIR SUICIDE RULING IN THIS NEW CASE?

As committee staff director, Mr. Millis had access to the U.S. intelligence community’s most intimate secrets. He knew about all U.S. covert action operations, which require written presidential notifications.

HOLY ****!

He also was privy to the most sensitive information collected by CIA agents, electronic eavesdropping and photographic satellites.

TALK ABOUT THE MAN WHO KNEW TOO MUCH!

Porter Goss

Porter Goss

According to police, Mr. Millis had called a friend and said he was distraught over being placed on administrative leave with pay by committee Chairman Rep. Porter J. Goss, Florida Republican. Mr. Millis also said he was facing administrative and criminal penalties as possible outcomes of the investigation.

NO, DON’T WRITE A SUICIDE NOTE AND SIGN IT, LEAVING NO DOUBT AS TO WHY YOU PLAN TO LEAVE A WIDOW AND FIVE ORPHANS. CONVENIENTLY CALL A “FRIEND” WHO AMOUNTS TO NOTHING MORE THAN AN ANOTHER ANONYMOUS SOURCE. FOR ALL WE KNOW, HE OR SHE DOESN’T EVEN EXIST. IF THE PERSON DOES EXIST, GIVEN MILLIS’S OCCUPATION, THE CHANCES ARE THAT THIS PERSON IS, AS THE SAY, IN THE “COMMUNITY,” WHICH MEANS THAT HE COULD WELL BE IN LEAGUE WITH THE KILLERS OR, AT THE VERY LEAST, HE OR SHE IS A PROFESSIONAL LIAR AND DECEIVER.

The friend then dialed *69, the automatic call-back sequence, and was connected to the Breezeway Motel in Fairfax. The friend explained to the motel operator that Mr. Millis was threatening to commit suicide.

DOES THAT RING TRUE TO YOU? DIDN’T THINK SO. DO YOU THINK THE PUBLIC WILL EVER LEARN EVEN THE NAME OF THAT HOTEL OPERATOR?

Police were called and upon arriving found Mr. Millis dead in the bathroom.

WONDER WHAT THE HOTEL PERSONNEL WERE DOING ALL THIS TIME, KNOWING THAT THEY HAD A SUICIDAL GUY IN THEIR MIDST AND KNOWING THE PRECISE ROOM HE WAS IN? THEY WOULD AT LEAST HAVE HAD THEIR EARS PERKED UP FOR THE SOUND OF A GUN SHOT, ONE WOULD THINK.

Mr. Goss could not be reached for comment. The committee’s staff and Mr. Goss’ spokeswoman did not return several telephone calls seeking comment on the circumstances surrounding Mr. Millis’ departure from the committee.

SO WHAT’S THE HASTE IN RUNNING THE STORY BEFORE IT HAS BEEN CHECKED OUT WITH THE PRINCIPALS INVOLVED IN IT? IT IS NOT CONNECTED TO ANY TIME-SENSITIVE EVENT LIKE THE ANNOUNCEMENT OF THE POLICE’S SUICIDE CONCLUSION. THERE IS ABSOLUTELY NO REASON TO RUN IT UNTIL GOSS AND HIS STAFF CAN BE REACHED. WITH CHARGES LIKE THESE IN HAND REPORTER GERTZ SHOULD HAVE HIED HIMSELF DOWN TO GOSS’S OFFICE, IF THAT’S WHAT IT TOOK, AND NOT LEFT UNTIL HE HAD SOME DEFINITIVE WORD ON THIS MATTER.

However, several U.S. government officials said Mr. Millis was fired and that the investigation was related to improper activities by him.

Anonymous Sources

Anonymous Sources

HERE WE GO AGAIN, MORE COMPLETELY ANONYMOUS SOURCES. THIS IS AN OUTRAGE! THE U.S. GOVERNMENT IS VERY LARGE, AND A NUMBER OF ITS EMPLOYEES THINK OF THEMSELVES AS OFFICIALS. BUT GERTZ COULD JUST BE MAKING THIS UP AND WE’D NEVER BE THE WISER.

Chief Scott said the investigation into his death was handled with extreme care in light of the case of White House Deputy Counsel Vincent W. Foster Jr., whose shooting death in 1993 was ruled a suicide. The investigation into Mr. Foster’s death, however, left many unanswered questions and spawned conspiracy theories.

WELL THANK YOU, CHIEF SCOTT. ALL ALONG I WAS EXPECTING YOU TO TELL US THAT YOUR BOYS DID A SLOPPY JOB. SO NOW WOULD YOU PLEASE SHARE WITH US THE INFORMATION YOU HAVE THAT MAKES YOU SO COMPLETELY SURE THAT WE HAVE NO FOUL PLAY HERE.

Chief Scott said the detective who investigated Mr. Millis’ death made sure there were no unanswered questions that might indicate a conspiracy, because of his CIA background and role as the committee staff director.

WE KNOW THAT JOHN ROLLA, ON HIS FIRST DEATH INVESTIGATION, WAS THE LEAD INVESTIGATOR IN THE FOSTER CASE. SO WHAT DID THIS ANONYMOUS DETECTIVE DO TO MAKE SURE THEIR WERE NO UNANSWERED QUESTIONS?

“Our detective knew that going in,” Chief Scott said. “That’s why he was very careful in processing the scene and checking for anything that might be suspicious.”

Tommy Burkett

Tommy Burkett

NOW THAT’S A RELIEF. FOR A MINUTE THERE I THOUGHT WE MIGHT BE FACED WITH ANOTHER QUICK IN AND OUT WITH NO QUESTIONING OF THE NEIGHBORS LIKE THIS SAME FORCE DID WITH TOMMY BURKETT’S MURDER CALLED SUICIDE. SEE THE BURKETTS’ WEB SITE GLAD TO KNOW THEY WERE THOROUGH THIS TIME. WHAT DO YOU WANT TO BET DR. JAMES C. BEYER DID A REALLY CAREFUL JOB ON THE AUTOPSY, TOO?

After Mr. Millis was found dead, FBI agents and Capitol Police were sent to the motel to look for classified documents, but found none. Security officials, however, recovered classified documents from a safe in Mr. Millis’ home.

SHADES OF JERRY PARKS OR DANNY CASALARO. MAYBE THEY WERE LOOKING FOR THE DOCUMENTS THAT INCRIMINATED THE KILLERS.

An FBI spokesman said the FBI was not investigating Mr. Millis for unauthorized disclosures.

THIS SENTENCE IS PUT IN TO PLANT THE IDEA THAT THAT’S WHAT MILLIS WAS GUILTY OF AND TO GIVE YOU THE IMPRESSION THAT GERTZ ACTUALLY DID SOME LEG WORK ON THIS STORY.

Mr. Goss said in a statement at the time of Mr. Millis’ death that he was stunned by the loss.

THAT’S “FORMER” CIA AGENT GOSS, NOW HEAD FOX IN CHARGE OF POLICING THE HEN HOUSE ON OUR BEHALF. DON’T EXPECT THIS PERSON TO BE REAL STRONG IN THE TRUTH DEPARTMENT, EITHER.

“It seems that there are always more ‘whys’ than there are answers when a tragedy like this occurs,” Mr. Goss said. “It also seems that words alone are insufficient to alleviate the enormous pain we feel. John will be greatly missed by members and staff alike.”

SOUNDS FAMILIAR.

The statement made no mention that Mr. Millis was under investigation.

ALL THE MORE REASON TO GET A REAL PERSON ON RECORD BEFORE YOU RUN WITH IT.

ph/hillCIA Director George J. Tenet said in a statement that “we in the intelligence community are shocked and saddened by this tragic loss. We worked closely with John for many years. He was a tenacious advocate for a strong national intelligence capability.”

HOW CLOSELY THEY WORKED WE’LL NEVER KNOW.

Mr. Millis had publicly criticized former CIA Director John Deutch, calling him the worst director in the agency’s history. During a speech at the Smithsonian Institution Feb. 15, Mr. Millis said Mr. Deutch inflicted “major damage” to the CIA’s espionage branch.

SOUNDS LIKE THE SORT OF MAN WHO MIGHT HAVE HAD AN ENEMY OR TWO.

The criticism prompted some officials to speculate that Mr. Millis may have improperly disclosed information about an investigation of Mr. Deutch by the CIA’s inspector general.

Jeremy Boorda

Jeremy Boorda

Reflecting upon these two Gertz reports, the first thing that comes to mind is a question, “Where are the rest of the news media on these stories?” No, let’s rephrase that: “Where are all those publications that are not quite so transparently phony news media?” Why haven’t they followed up in any way, demanding answers and properly serving as the eyes and ears of the public? The question, I am afraid, tends to answer itself.

William Colby

William Colby

Noticing the change in the reporting from Foster to Millis to Weiss to “John Doe” we also see a very

disturbing trend. They keep telling us less and less. Looking back on it, they’re probably kicking themselves now for even giving out the names of the previous high-level sufferers of premature death, including Admiral Jeremy Boorda, former CIA head William Colby, and State Department official John Kokal. If the trend continues, will they even tell us in the future when someone important has died, suspiciously or otherwise?   Maybe the policy started back in 2005, or even earlier, and we just didn’t know about it. It was only in doing research for this article that we discovered Wayne Madsen’s report of another State Department “suicide” in 2005 in which the victim’s name was apparently never reported.

The growing shutdown of information is of a piece with the creeping garrison-state appearance of the nation’s capital and the increasingly managed nature of Presidential news conferences. In the former case, it began with the closing down of Pennsylvania Avenue in the wake of the Oklahoma City bombing and then got many times worse all over town, or at least in the places where tourists visit, after 9/11.

Sarah McClendon

Sarah McClendon

In the latter case, we first noticed George W. Bush glancing down at a sheet in front of him before calling on the next member of the press corps for a scripted question. Gone were the days when reporters like the late Sarah McClendon would raise their hands, stand up, or even shout to be recognized. We wouldn’t want our President to be surprised by a question like, “Who was that senior CIA official who died from the fall from a building last week?” from someone he doesn’t know, would we? At least, George W. tried to conceal the fact that he was just going down a predetermined list of names of people to be called upon, but, characteristically, he did a rather poor job of it. No more. Now Barack Obama goes straight to the list without even looking out at the gathered scribes and reads from his paper, saying such things as, “Let me see; who’s next here?” as he does so.

Already, our children don’t even know that things don’t have to be this way or that they have ever been different. They don’t know that we at least used to put up a pretty good show of being a free country. Now our rulers have found that they can even dispense with that.

USHMM: Do What Matters

Committee for Open Debate on the Holocaust

Sara Bloomfield, Director

United States Holocaust Memorial Museum

100 Raoul Wallenberg Place, SW

Washington, DC 20024-2126

Main telephone: 202.488.0400

TTY: 202.488.0406

26 March 2014

Ms. Bloomfield:

I have just read the article in The Jewish Daily Forward titled “Holocaust Museum Turns 20 as Sara Bloomfield Ends Controversies.”  http://tinyurl.com/pubn57n  Written by Nathan Guttman, the article was occasioned by the coming 2014 Days of Remembrance gala to take place throughout Western culture in late April.

Guttman notes that Deborah Lipstadt, professor of Holocaust Studies at Emory University, has said that you are an excellent administrator and “modest enough to not make a pretense of being a scholar.” We have more in common than I had thought. I’m certainly not a scholar, and it’s good to know that I am not addressing someone who claims to one. At the same time, we both address some of the most important matters of this 21st Century. As lay persons, how do we do that?

In the Forward you are quoted as saying:  “We know that when all the eyewitnesses are gone the (USHMM document) collection will be the sole authentic witness to the Holocaust.” The implication here is that the survivor testimony you sponsor at the USHMM is authentic. Because much of that testimony is intended to illustrate the criminal monstrosity of Germans, we would both want to look soberly at what we are told is “authentic.” We share one thing alike, you and me and the scholar. We’re human, so sometimes we are mistaken, and sometimes some of us are not honest.

To that point, your USHMM promotes on film the eyewitness testimony of one Filip Muller, author of “Three Years In the Gas Chambers,” and according to USHMM scholars an “authentic” eyewitness to German monstrosity. In his book he testifies to collaborating with Germans as a member of the Sonderkommando in the extermination of the Jewish people. In one anecdote promoted by your Museum scholars, Mr. Muller relates how on some days in the crematoria German doctors would slice pieces of flesh off still-living Jews and throw fragments of it into buckets. Because the muscles of some were still working and contracting, those pieces of flesh would make “the bucket jump about.”

Make the bucket jump about? There on the crematory floor? I question that. I do not believe you do. I would ask you why? Because you are not a scholar? If one of your Museum scholars were to produce testimony from a Sonderkommando that there were German house flies the size of horses feeding on the dead at Auschwitz, would you not question that? Why not? Because you are not a scholar?

Do you believe it is anti-Semitic to question Filip Mueller’s jumping-buckets-of-flesh-story? Does my doubt about the jumping-buckets-of-flesh tale suggest that I “hate” you, Sara, because you’re a Jew? I can get annoyed with a Jew about this or that, I’m just a guy, but I get annoyed with my wife sometimes too. Does that mean I hate my wife? No, Sara. Not my wife. Not you.

In your remarks about the coming Days of Remembrance 2014 you say: “It’s really a moral challenge to us to do more in our own lives when we confront injustice or hatred or genocide.”

http://tinyurl.com/nvpouvo

Again, I agree with you. I believe you and I have a moral challenge to confront such hateful (and “stupid?) accusations as the “jumping-buckets-of-flesh” testimonies. Such testimony is false, it is unjust, and it is an open expression of racist, anti-German hatred. Those who lie about such matters, who promote such lies and profit by them, are moral criminals, guilty of everything your Museum stands against. We have to keep in mind that the moral challenge you speak of is oftentimes more difficult for some of us than for our perceived enemies.

One moral issue the USHMM has chosen to emphasize is the failure of the Americans to bomb the rail lines leading to Auschwitz, which theoretically would have saved the lives of many Jews. I am not aware of anyone at the USHMM who has addressed the fact that the “Americans” intentionally burned alive hundreds of thousands of German children, their sisters and mothers and the elderly via mass fire-bombings. Do you not see a “moral issue” there? Does it make a difference for you that those children were German? Is that not a moral challenge that should be addressed by your USHMM?

On March 6th, you attended the United States Holocaust Museum 2014 Los Angeles Dinner. The theme of the event was, “What you do matters.” That’s a principled theme.

You have said “our Museum is reaching out to millions worldwide, one by one, challenging each of us to act.” Sara, why do you not feel challenged to act on the question of the United States Holocaust Museum exploiting false eyewitness testimony to condemn Germans? While you do not originate such false eyewitness testimony (lies), you do administer their promotion by USHMM staff and in-house scholars to raise tens of millions of dollars yearly for your Museum. What you do, matters.

You have said: “The Holocaust teaches how easily hate can grow and incubate in a group environment”. https://ushmm.org/museum/about/video/   Does it not occur to you that the false testimony of the Filip Mullers and other false “eyewitnesses” to alleged German actions are expressions of how hate has grown and incubated in the environment created by your own USHMM?

What you do, and what you do not do, really does matter.

I receive copies of Mr Smith’ s letters and thought I would share this particular one because it hits home on several issues that bother me about the “Holocaust Debate”. The Holocaust Debate (in my mind) is about those who question the veracity of claims made by witnesses (which I do) and those who believe virtually everything the witnesses say, no matter how ludicrous or whether the “survivors” have been proven to be bald-faced liars, yet are still touted as truthful by the believers (generally Jews with a motive to keep the scam alive).

The knee-jerk reaction by “believers” is to immediately claim deniers are haters or racists, Nazis, and then simplify the claim with the ANTI-SEMITE charge. The problem with the official narrative regarding Jews being intentionally gassed to death is that there isn’t the slightest bit of physical evidence. No autopsies (of the thousands done) show gassing of anyone. No orders or programs by the German government. There are no mass graves. There are no burning pits. Not even the signs of gassing (deep red discoloration) have been testified to.

ELIE-WIESEL-QUOTE-2

Not even gas chambers have been found.

Nor have any bodies or ash or any signs of the Holohoax ever been produced, even though some Australians tried to find the remains of 870,000 Jews supposedly killed at the Treblinka Camp with ground penetrating radar and core samples dug to 6 meters:

Tall Tales

ELIE-WIESEL-QUOTEAll they have are “witnesses” who tell tall tales (for whatever their motive). And the fact that many of them have had their lies uncovered seems to make no difference to the “believers”.

There are very prominent people who have been caught with their pants down sleeves up (as in the case of Elie Wiesel). He was caught without a long-sleeved shirt and shown that he has no tattoo etched on his arm after claiming he did (in Mississippi, we call that a LIE). He actually won the Nobel Peace Prize, much like the liar in chief we have in office right now. He claims to be one of the inmates in the following picture (which was modified by someone to make them look even more pitiful), yet he was not in that picture.

Shit eater, Irene Zisblatt, tells us of how she ate diamonds out of her feces every day and how she is here because she somehow avoided the gas chambers several times. Her entire story is so full of what she was eating, that she brims over with lying stench.

hqdefaultOprah touted Herman Rosenblatt and his wife many times, until it was proved (and he admitted) that the entire story was a lie.

Misha Defonseca tells us she escaped and was raised by wolves (yes, she did). LOL

Malka Rosenthal hid in a Barrel for One and a Half Years during the Holocaust.

Simon Wiesenthal had to finally admit before a Frankfurt district court that he was actually never in Auschwitz and that many of his renowned stories were nothing more than infamous lies.

Impressive!

Then we have the recent Freedom of Speech denier in Australia who was sent to NO LESS than FIVE “Death Camps”, but somehow, miraculously SURVIVED. Amazing, that! As impressive as surviving 5 “death camps” is, Fred Schiefler told “stunned” teenagers  that he survived ELEVEN “death camps” and then bought soap made from Jews (“stunned”, because like many rational thinking people, these kids were likely stupefied by his blatant lies). But you ain’t heard nothing, yet: one guy named Ya’akov Hollender survived no less that TWELVE “Death Camps” and THREE Death Marches.

OK, bidders: Can I get a 15?

There are countless examples of these “witnesses” that have been shown to be damned liars, yet when I point that out, I am accused of some horrible Holocaust Denial or have some agenda of hate or that I am gullible to believe the revisionists.  The fact is that I have read and seen so many lies from these opportunists, that I have to question the veracity of the claims or I wouldn’t be honest with myself.

David Cole (Stein) , a person I consider a “Decent Jew”, pointed out in a recent interview with Ryan Dawson that one of the “witnesses”(Ernest Hollander) that the Montel Show brought on to debate he and Mark Weber in that famous show that caused such an uproar, told a story about his entire family (including his brother) was gassed to death at a camp (he being the sole survivor). A while later, someone noticed how much his upstairs neighbor looked like this Ernest Hollander scam artist (and miraculously had the same last name) and there was a reunion of this “witness” and his long dead brother who he was gassed decades before (proving that zombies are REAL, no doubt).

It was another miracle.

Hellfire, one Holocaust survivor, Josef Kleinmann, found out that he, himself, was dead.

Now why wouldn’t any person in their right mind question what is truthful or not after learning these things?

(Side-note: I am not sure about this Ryan Dawson character, although his selfie looks kinda gay. I addressed some of his misdirection about Ron Paul here and was subsequently vindicated the next day when Paul took on Bruce Fein as an adviser. Dawson still touts the “evil Nazi” official story, just as Larken Rose does, although I feel Larken does so because of ignorance, while Dawson does so because he is Jewish and defends the Jews. Dawson also banned me from commenting on his channel, which may happen with Rose. It wouldn’t be the first, at least.)

Back to the subject at hand: Liars and why they do it

Even our own military commanders lied about many aspects of the “gassings”. Surely you have seen some of the old propaganda films, especially one about the Dachau “death camp” where we are told from our own people that gassings took place there (yet it is understood and admitted today that this was a fabrication).

You can read about many Holocaust Liars here and here.

The Con

holoconag

Yes, the con is on again (right in time for your Easter Celebration)

Bro Kapner (another “Decent Jew”: meaning a Jew who has denounced Jewry or has called out the liars for what they are) explains the Con Job very well.

Looking beyond the witnesses, why would propaganda films be needed, unless they are trying to form the mindset of the masses? Or, what about the intentional manipulation of pictures as shown below? Why would they do this, if truth is all they need?

 

The Numbers

Just the moving target count of victims at Auschwitz alone denies the faith based number of 6,000,000auschwitz-plaque-killed-comparison

It went initially from 8,000,000 to 5,000,000 to 4,000,000 to 3,000,000 to 1,600,000 to 1,400,000 to 1,250,000 to 1,000,000 (which is the last “official” Auschwitz plaque number). Even the Jew-controlled Wikipedia says around 1,000,000 people total were killed there (90% being Jewish). Unfortunately (for the liars), in 1989 the Soviet Union finally released documentation showing that the total number of deaths at Auschwitz. The actual number is 74,000. The plaque at Auschwitz has been changed several times, yet the vaunted 6,000,000 never goes away (as a matter of fact, the recent “revelations” now suggest 20,000,000 Jews were killed).

Now, what amazes me is what wikipedia states about the world’s Jewish population (deriving the numbers from Jewish sources, no less):

The total number of Jews worldwide is difficult to assess because the definition of “who is a Jew” is problematic; not all Jews identify themselves as Jewish, and some who identify as Jewish are not considered so by other Jews. According to the Jewish Year Book (1901), the global Jewish population in 1900 was around 11 million. The latest available data is from the World Jewish Population Survey of 2002 and the Jewish Year Calendar (2005). In 2002, according to the Jewish Population Survey, there were 13.3 million Jews around the world. The Jewish Year Calendar cites 14.6 million. Jewish population growth is currently near zero percent, with 0.3% growth from 2000 to 2001.

Pearl Harbor vs. 9/11

Pearl Harbor vs. 9/11

by DC Dave

bushobama

When asked the question, “What impresses you more about George W. Bush and Barack Obama, their absence of intelligence or their absence of integrity,” a ready answer comes to mind, and it is clearly not the same for each. But in the case of Bush’s first Secretary of Defense, Donald Rumsfeld, I think you will have to agree that it’s a tough call.

DonaldRumsfeld

That was the first thing that came to my mind when I saw in the pages of The New York Timesthat Rumsfeld had essayed a comparison between the momentous events in Hawaii on December 7, 1941, and in New York City, Arlington, VA, and Shanksville, PA, on September 11, 2001. The one big similarity that he was able to note was that—as the official script reads—we were caught completely by surprise in each case.

In turn, that got me to thinking along the lines that I lay out in the opening paragraphs of my article, “America’s Dreyfus Affair, the Case of the Death of Vincent Foster.” Suppose you were a professor of United States history and had the opportunity to give the following assignment to your students in an exam: “Compare and contrast Pearl Harbor and 9/11.” What are the answers that you would be looking for from your best students?

Surely they would have to say that each of the events resulted in our going to war. That’s where the comparison almost has to begin. But no sooner have we written it than a contrast arises. When Japan attacked us, we were, by definition, already at war. Disregarding, for the moment, what might have led up to the attack, one could hardly say about our war with Japan, as with our subsequent invasions of Afghanistan and Iraq, that it was a “war of choice.” One might argue, however, that the war with Germany was a war of choice, even though Hitler declared war on the United States four days later on December 11. His rationale was not, as is commonly believed, that they were obligated by treaty to do so, but that the United States had every intention of going to war with Germany after the attack and he might as well beat us to the punch. One can’t read FDR’s speech of December 9, 1941, and come to any other conclusion than that Hitler was correct in his assessment, whether or not the “beating to the punch” move was wise from a propaganda perspective. That FDR speech laid the blame for the Pearl Harbor attack as much on Germany as on Japan and was clearly intended to prepare the country for war with all three Axis powers, Germany, Italy, and Japan.

5071The next strong comparison that can be made is that the wars that resulted were wars that powerful people within the United States government wanted to happen. For months Roosevelt had been doing almost everything he could to provoke Hitler into attacking us, but Hitler would not go for the bait. Even Roosevelt’s greatest defenders will admit that this was true. They argue that it was simply the right thing to do to ally ourselves with Britain (and the Soviet Union) against “Nazi aggression.” The big problem, from that perspective, is that the mood of the country was still strongly against our involvement in “foreign wars,” based upon our bitter World War I experience. In a campaign speech on October 30, 1940, as the European war raged, Roosevelt had catered to the national mood with these words, “And while I am talking to you mothers and fathers, I give you one more assurance. I have said this before, but I shall say it again and again and again: Your boys are not going to be sent into any foreign wars.”

Pearl Harbor got him off the hook that he had created for himself with that promise. It wasn’t a “foreign war” anymore because we had been attacked.

neocons2

Similarly, the key people in the George W. Bush administration, including Rumsfeld, but also his top assistant Paul Wolfowitz and Vice President Dick Cheney, as members of The Project for the New American Century (PNAC) in 2000 had called for precisely the sort of aggressive military policy that followed 9/11, but acknowledged that it would not happen very quickly “absent a catastrophic and catalyzing event like a new Pearl Harbor.”

Two events brought PNAC into the mainstream of American government: the disputed election of George W. Bush, and the attacks of September 11th. When Bush assumed the Presidency, the men who created and nurtured the imperial dreams of PNAC became the men who run the Pentagon, the Defense Department and the White House. When the Towers came down, these men saw, at long last, their chance to turn their White Papers into substantive policy. 

Vice President Dick Cheney is a founding member of PNAC, along with Defense Secretary Donald Rumsfeld and Defense Policy Board chairman Richard Perle. Deputy Defense Secretary Paul Wolfowitz is the ideological father of the group. Bruce Jackson, a PNAC director, served as a Pentagon official for Ronald Reagan before leaving government service to take a leading position with the weapons manufacturer Lockheed Martin.

– “The Project for the New American Century,” by William Rivers Pitt

This “new Pearl Harbor” was something of a godsend to the men whose portraits we see in this video like the original one was to FDR and to the people behind him.

Maybe the most important contrast between the two events, again, using only the official narrative, is that the Japanese attack plan was, at least tactically, thoroughly rational and depended for its success upon predictable behavior by the U.S. adversary. By contrast, the 9/11 attacks were tactically irrational and, on paper, well nigh hopeless, depending as they did upon unprecedented incompetence on the part the North American Air Defense Command and amazing docility by airline passengers and crew and no less amazing competence by novice pilots of airliners. The Japanese, as we knew, were well served by their espionage agents in Hawaii and they knew that General Walter Short had not been supplied with an adequate number of patrol planes to provide sufficient warning by the air attack from carriers that they planned. * They also knew from observation that security tended to be somewhat more relaxed on a Sunday than on any other day. The Japanese attackers were professionals doing something very similar to what they must have done many times before in their training.

How could the supposed 9/11 hijackers have known that the North American Air Defense Command (NORAD) would not follow its usual protocol and simply intercept the airplanes very shortly after they had departed from their normal flight paths? The question holds true in particular for the attack upon the Pentagon, which occurred a full 51 minutes after the first plane crashed into the World Trade Center. Through what extraordinary espionage could the attackers have known in advance that the U.S. Air Force would send up interceptor jets from Langley Air Force Base in distant Hampton, Virginia, that would arrive too late, instead of from nearby Andrews Air Force Base just a few miles away in Maryland or even Bolling Air Force Base across the river in Washington, DC? See my satire, “Bin Laden’s Home Video: The Missing Portion,” for more on this whole question.

The supposed Al Qaeda plan, as it has been told to us, violated radically the U. S. military’s KISS (keep it simple, stupid) doctrine and Sun Tzu’s dictum, “Never underestimate your opponent,” in The Art of War.  The Japanese attack plan, by contrast, was simple and took due regard of our expected defense.

story1After Pearl Harbor, scapegoats were blamed and punished. No one has been punished for allowing 9/11 to happen. Admiral Husband Kimmel, in charge of the Pacific Fleet—based at Pearl Harbor instead of San Diego over the vigorous protests of his predecessor—who had been relieved of his duty over the issue—and General Short were promptly relieved of their commands and were later blamed by the Roberts Commission for “errors of judgment and dereliction of duty.”

The report of the Roberts Commission had its counterpart in the 9/11 wcshort-usa-photo-01Commission Report. There are no counterparts to Admiral Kimmel and General Short in that report, however. To this writer’s knowledge, no individual has ever been singled out for punishment for what happened. We have previously summed up the situation with the following poem:

That Country of the People…

The feds left us unprotected

On that fateful September day.

If we were a truly free

And democratic nation

Somebody up high would pay,

And, to be sure, there would be

A proper investigation,

But wouldn’t you know, it is we

Who get detained and inspected.

At Pearl Harbor, from the very first moment it was obvious that we were being attacked by the formidable military of a relatively large country population-wise in Japan. On 9/11, it was not at all obvious who was attacking us and it is still not to this day. The authorities and the news media were suspiciously quick to solve the crime and lay the blame on Osama Bin Laden when they had been suspiciously incompetent in preventing it. In this aspect of the case, 9/11 resembles the Oklahoma City bombing and the two Kennedy assassinations and the Martin Luther King, Jr., assassination more than it resembles the Pearl Harbor attack. Moreover, in terms of the real threat that it represents to the nation, there is a huge difference between being attacked by a heavily armed country and being attacked by a ragtag, stateless organization or group of individuals whose armaments amount to almost nothing.

The strategic objective of the Japanese was obvious, to gain a large advantage in the shooting-war phase of its war with the United States. The 9/11 attacks had no clear objective.

Having been given an ultimatum by the United States that no Japanese government could have accepted, the Japanese leaders initiated war in precisely the way in which they had been successful in the past. It was either that or be choked and starved by the U.S. embargo. They were fully aware that it would bring down the full might of the United States in retaliation, but they felt they had no choice in the matter. No such rationale existed for Osama Bin Laden to invite U.S. retaliation in a similar fashion.

HTH_Nov_30_1941_front_600

In neither case did the attacks catch everyone on our side by surprise. Our military leaders in Washington, through the interception and decryption of a message from Tokyo to its negotiators in Washington, knew beyond a reasonable doubt that Pearl Harbor would be attacked four hours before the attack took place, but failed to convey a warning to General Short and Admiral Kimmel until it was too late. They knew by the night before that an attack would occur somewhere in the Pacific. By the next morning, when the last part of the cable had been decrypted and they saw that the negotiators were ordered to deliver their message ending peace talks at 1 pm Washington time, they could see that the most likely target for attack was Pearl Harbor. That was 7:30 am Honolulu time, which was approximately dawn, the most likely time for an attack. See “Six Myths of the Traditional Pearl Harbor Story” by Michael T. Griffith for a good short summary.

No more than the American public or the American Congress, Short and Kimmel had not been told about the November 26 ultimatum to Japan that made war virtually inevitable. The most obvious conclusion to be reached is that to do so, like alerting them the morning of December 7 or the evening of December 6, would have resulted in their preparation to defeat the sort of attack that occurred. Japan’s spies in Hawaii, it was known, would have detected these preparations, and the desired war-starting attack would have been called off.

Five Dancing Israelis

A number of people seemed to have had advance notice of the 9/11 attacks. To the list of links provided in this article, one might also add the group of “celebrating Israelis” who got themselves into place to “document the event.”  In the specific case of Building 7 of the World Trade Center, the BBC and CNN seem to have had prior warning of its collapse because they reported that it had fallen before it had done so.

As for the claims by various people in the Bush administration, detailed in this web site, that they could not possibly have imagined such a stunt as hijacking airliners and flying them into buildings, they are perhaps best belied by the fact that the National Reconnaissance Office (NRO) had planned a drill for precisely that on the day of the attacks.

From all indications, the ships at Pearl Harbor that were damaged by the attack either sank or they did not in accordance with the laws of physics. That seems not to have been the case with respect the buildings damaged in New York or Arlington, VA, if the official narrative is to be believed.

No one has ever been given any reason to suspect that Pearl Harbor was a false flag incident. Although General Short had been led to believe by his superiors in Washington that the greatest danger he faced was from sabotage, and prepared accordingly, no one has claimed that sabotage caused any of the damage that occurred on December 7, 1941. By contrast, virtually all of the damage that occurred on 9/11 bears a very close resemblance to sabotage.

The United States was able to portray itself purely as a victim in each case. Such “victimology” is completely consistent with the historical tactics of one particular interest group that wielded a great deal of power within both the Roosevelt and Bush administrations. Pearl Harbor brought the United States into the war against that group’s greatest enemy, Nazi Germany, and Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu, himself, said that the 9/11 attacks were “good for Israel.” It can also be safely said that Israel is the only country in the world where the majority of the population favored the U.S. invasion of Iraq.

The comparisons and the contrasts could go on and on, but we shall conclude by noting that the war in which the United States became involved as a result of Pearl Harbor was against other countries that would end in the usual way, when one side or the other surrendered. Since 9/11, our leaders have told us that we are in a war against a tactic, an abstract noun, “terrorism,” and that is a war that promises no end. An abstract noun cannot sign surrender papers.

* “Col. Melvin W. Maas, of the Marine Corps Reserve, former Minnesota Congressman, said that when two hundred fifty patrol bombers necessary to bring Hawaii up to required minimum strength of three hundred planes came off the production lines, Washington ordered them sent to Britain. When protests were made to Roosevelt, he referred the admirals to Harry Hopkins, in charge of allocating war materials.

“’Hopkins received them as he lay in bed, nonchalantly smoking a cigarette,’ said Maas. ‘He listened to them, then told them the interview was over and that he had already made the allocation. Adm. Kimmel told me if those two hundred fifty patrol planes had been sent to Hawaii, the December 7 attack could never have succeeded, and probably would never have been attempted.’” (George Morgenstern, Pearl Harbor: The Story of the Secret War, Kindle location approx. 2300)

Was Franklin Roosevelt a Communist?

 

Was Franklin Roosevelt a Communist?

 by DC Dave

UnitedSocialistStatesOfAmericaFlagFDR

John Beaty in his 1951 book, The Iron Curtain Over America, asks the following rhetorical question (p. 187):

In solemn truth, do not seven persons share most of the responsibility for establishing the Communist grip on the world? Are not the seven: (1) Marx, the founder of violent Communism; (2) Engels, the promoter of Marx; (3, 4, 5) Trotsky, Lenin, and Stalin; (6) Franklin D. Roosevelt, who rescued the tottering Communist empire by recognition (1933), by the resultant financial support, by his refusal to proceed against Communists in the United States, and by the provisions of the Yalta Conference; and (7) Harry S. Truman, who agreed at Potsdam to the destruction of Germany and thereafter followed the Franklin Roosevelt policy of refusing to act against Communists in the United States—the one strong nationhtruman which remains as a possible obstacle to the Communist world power.

Upon first thought one might be inclined to drop Truman from the list on account of the institution of the Truman Doctrine in 1947 and the stand he took against the Communists in Korea in 1950, but if one puts the loss of China, North Korea, and ultimately the former French Indo-China to the Communists on his account, which is amply justified, Truman deserves his place. He is the odd man out only in that no one could ever charge that his policies resulted from anything resembling a pro-Communist ideology on his part. Rather, they were a product of the team that he inherited from FDR and the generally pro-Soviet mood of the country that had been fostered by a decade or so of propaganda by the dominant U.S. opinion molders. Truman can also be excused for simply being in over his head when he assumed the presidency.

Roosevelt is a different matter entirely. One needn’t go past the pages of my own web site to gather enough evidence to support the assertion that FDR himself must have been a Communist. Consider what FDR told Rep. Martin Dies in 1940:

I do not regard the Communists as any present or future threat to our country, in fact I look upon Russia as our strongest ally in the years to come.  As I told you when you began your investigation, you should confine yourself to Nazis and Fascists.  While I do not believe in Communism, Russia is far better off and the world is safer with Russia under Communism than under the Czars.  Stalin is a great leader, and although I deplore some of his methods, it is the only way he can safeguard his government.

His protestation of a lack of belief in Communism is completely belied by his words here and in many, many ways by his actions. Dies notes that those pro-Soviet, pro-Stalin views match what he told Cardinal Spellman in 1943:

His aide memoire is completely in accord with the opinions Roosevelt expressed to me over the years. Specifically, the President had said that Russia was our natural ally; that the Russian people were much better off than they had been under the czars; and that he thought that the Russians would get about forty percent of the world, and the capitalist regimes would retain sixty percent.

Unfortunately, Roosevelt’s policies seemed to have been designed to make sure that the prediction in that last paragraph would come true. The Yalta Conference near the end of the war was just the capper on a global war strategy that from beginning to end could hardly have been better crafted to further the interests of Joseph Stalin and world Communism. Having been attacked by the Japanese, the American public along with many of the country’s military leaders wanted a greater emphasis upon the Pacific theater and defeat of the Japanese and less upon the war with the Germans, but Stalin wanted it otherwise and that’s what he got from Roosevelt. In the battle against the Germans, our British allies favored an attack in the Eastern Mediterranean and up through the Balkans, but, again, Stalin wanted a different strategy from us. He feared that we would occupy Eastern Europe and dictate the peace in that area before his troops could arrive. Stalin, therefore, pushed for us to attack across the English Channel at the earliest possible date to take German pressure off the Soviet Union while keeping non-Communist allied forces as far away from his sphere of interest as possible. Only fierce British resistance probably prevented the allies from making a premature attack across the channel, but we finally did carry out Stalin’s wishes.

jan14-2-imgFrom the beginning we lavished supplies and equipment upon the Soviet Union far beyond the requirements of military necessity. Worst of all was Roosevelt’s unilateral declaration at the Casablanca Conference early in 1943 that we would only accept unconditional surrender to conclude the war. Our rigid adherence to that policy virtually to the very end* undercut the strong anti-Nazi elements within Germany, assuring that there would not be a separate peace between the non-Communist adversaries that would in some degree deprive the Soviet Union of the spoils of victory, and that the Japanese would continue to fight until the Soviet Union could enter the Pacific war and promote Communism in the East. This unconditional surrender policy resulted in the Roosevelt administration spurning a number of serious peace overtures from the anti-Nazi, anti-Communist military leadership of Germany in 1943. Later, we were to do the same thing with respect to the Japanese emperor.

Defenders of Roosevelt’s complete capitulation to Stalin at Yalta argue that we were simply accepting facts on the ground achieved through Soviet military success, and there is some truth to it, but only because of previous concessions to Stalin at Tehran and through our overall pro-Soviet military strategy. The absolute worst things Roosevelt did at Yalta were to agree to the return of refugees from Russia to their Soviet oppressors known as Operation Keelhaul and the offering of inducements to Stalin to enter the war against the Japanese. George N. Crocker in Roosevelt’s Road to Russia best captures the folly of that last position:

[In Honolulu] on July 27 and 28, 1944, [FDR] had discussed the war in the Pacific for many hours with General Douglas MacArthur, who had flown up from Australia, and Admiral Chester W. Nimitz, commander of the naval forces in the Pacific. MacArthur and Nimitz, in the presence of Admiral William D. Leahy, had told him that “Japan could be forced to accept our terms of surrender by the use of sea and air power without an invasion of the Japanese homeland.” Since then, what was left of the Japanese fleet had been crushed in the Battle of Leyte Gulf in October, the Philippines had been retaken, B-29’s were bombing Japan from Guam, Tinian, and Saipan, and Japanese peace feelers had been put out.

When Roosevelt went to Yalta, he kept MacArthur and Nimitz far away. He asked them nothing, told them nothing. In view of what he did at Yalta, this would seem an incomprehensible neglect on his part to avail himself of the counsel of the two men most qualified to give it. The only explanation that makes any sense is that he already knew what their advice would be, that it was not compatible with his plans, and that he did not welcome having their opinions—overwhelmingly authoritative as they would be—presented. At this stage, elementary statesmanship, for the security of American interests in the Far East, required that the Soviet Union be, at almost any cost, dissuaded, discouraged, and forestalled from entering the war with Japan. Roosevelt went to Yalta and secretly did just the opposite. (pp. 242-243).

Rather than depending upon the foreign policy expertise of Secretary of State Cordell Hull at his various strategy powwows with HopkinsHarryWinston Churchill and Joseph Stalin, he depended almost exclusively upon the former social worker right-hand man Harry Hopkins. Hull was not even allowed to attend the meetings. The main qualification that Hopkins had, other than the “people skills” that author David Roll is almost rhapsodic about in The Hopkins Touchis that he was an even stronger partisan of Stalin and Communism than Roosevelt was. For a brief summary of Hopkins’ pro-Communist activities see my recent article, “Harry Hopkins and FDR’s Commissars.

Roosevelt did take his Secretary of State to Yalta, but this time that was the rubber-stamp front man Edward Stettinius. Stettinius played a much less significant role at Yalta than did his putative underling at the State Department, the Soviet spy Alger Hiss. Only from reading the recent book Stalin’s Secret Agents by M. Stanton Evans and Herbert Romerstein did this writer learn that FDR had asked for the somewhat obscure Hiss by name to be on his Yalta team. This is very nearly the most damning piece of evidence of all suggesting that FDR himself must have been a Communist. After all, he had been informed by his security chief Adolf Berle back in 1939 upon very good inside information from Whittaker Chambers that Hiss was a Soviet espionage agent. His “refusal to proceed against Communists in the United States,” as John Beaty puts it, was even worse than that. He refused to proceed against Communist spies at the highest levels of his own government, Soviet agents that possibly included even Harry Hopkins himself.

The Contrary Evidence

It is a less trivial defense than one might think, but one might say that Roosevelt wasn’t learned or smart enough to be devoted to any particular ideology, whether it be Communism or anything else. He was nobody’s intellectual. He was hardly known to have read a serious book of non-fiction about anything unless it had a nautical theme, and the American Communism of the Red Decade was largely a disease of the intellectuals. Roosevelt was not an “ideas” person, he was a people person, much more strongly influenced by the exigencies of the moment or by whatever strong personality was able to get close to him and bend his ear than by any sort of ideological inclination or independent thought or study.

Here is how Crocker fashions his negative answer to our title question in Roosevelt’s Road to Russia:

Through his sources of information in the United States, some of whom were in high places, Stalin knew that Franklin D. Roosevelt could be relied upon to see at least this phase [the Soviet reaping of the war spoils] of the program through. He was not mistaken.

Does this mean the American people had elected a crypto-Communist as President? Or that this President, by shunting the third war, the secret one, out of sight, consciously intended harm to his country? It does not. No such inference is intended. To make it is to misapprehend the Roosevelt mentality.

Here we touch a delicate point. Roosevelt was no more a Communist than he was a Jeffersonian. Conversely, he was no more a Jeffersonian than he was a Communist. Ideologies were not the stuff of the cerebrations that took place in that handsome head. Here was no furrow-browed zealot for a system, no Karl Marx, no Adam Smith. In the presence of an argument between a socialist and a capitalist, he would be likely to steal the show with a charmingly put evasion. To Harold Ickes’ wistful plaint that it was “impossible to come to grips with him,” James F. Byrnes has added that “Franklin Roosevelt was not the same to any two men.” The man who, as we shall see, clandestinely obtained the recommendations of Earl Browder, the head of the Communist party, in the crucial months of the war, wore a different collar than the man who discussed affairs with Byrnes.

Most confounding of the notion that FDR could have been a devoted Communist, to my mind, was his admiration for and use of the career Republican politician, General Patrick J. Hurley. Hurley was a thoroughgoing American patriot and as such was a strong anti-Communist, an anti-Zionist, and an anti-imperialist as well. To get some appreciation of Hurley’s sentiments see “FDR’s Top Envoy Slaps Down Top Zionist” and “The Old Zionist Smear Machine.” Those articles are about Hurley’s work as FDR’s special envoy to the Middle East in 1943. In that position, Hurley’s anti-Zionism was hardly in conflict with Roosevelt’s own predisposition to oppose the Zionists’ ambitions in Palestine. But in August of 1944 Roosevelt put Hurley in a position where he could strike a very strong blow against Communism, at least Mao Tse-tung’s version of it. He sent Hurley as a special envoy to Chiang Kai-shek and in November he made him Ambassador to China. Hurley, in a very important move, sacked the Chiang-hating General “Vinegar” Joe Stillwell and had him replaced by the anti-Communist General Albert Wedemeyer.

Roosevelt’s confidence in Hurley is several times attested by General Elliott Roosevelt in As He Saw It.  In Tehran the 180px-PJayHurlmorning after the banquet at the Russian Embassy the President said:

I want you to do something for me, Elliott.  Go find Pat Hurley, and tell him to get to work drawing up a draft memorandum guaranteeing Iran’s independence…I wish I had more men like Pat, on whom I could depend.  The men in the State Department, those career diplomats…half the time I can’t tell whether I should believe them or not (pp. 192-193).

At the second Cairo Conference the President told his son:

That Pat Hurley…He did a good job.  If anybody can straighten out the mess of internal Chinese politics, he’s the man…Men like Pat Hurley are invaluable.  Why?  Because they’re loyal.  I can give him assignments that I’d never give a man in the State Department because I can depend on him…Any number of times the men in the State Department have tried to conceal messages to me, delay them, hold them up somehow, just because some of those career diplomats aren’t in accord with what they know I think (pp. 204-205)

Reading that passage from pp. 86-87 of Beaty’s The Iron Curtain Over America one can’t help but lament that FDR chose Harry Hopkins instead of Hurley to do his foreign policy heavy lifting during the war.  As it happened, the one good thing that Roosevelt did to oppose the Communists was reversed by his successor Truman as Hurley was undercut by his Communist-sympathizing underlings and forced out.  Furthermore, Roosevelt may not have had much of a choice in the matter when it came to the selection of Hopkins.

FDR Not His Own Man?

The impression one gets from Curtis Dall’s F.D.R.: My Exploited Father-in-Law is that far from just being Roosevelt’s flunky, Hopkins was close to being a co-President.  He had the same sort of ambition and the same sort of cunning that FDR did, and beginning his career in New York City as a social worker he developed the same network among New York’s power brokers that Roosevelt did.

Dall, a New York stockbroker newly married to Roosevelt’s daughter Anna had an inside look at the maneuvering around his father-in-law before and after his election as President in 1932.  The man who carried the most immediate weight with Roosevelt was his Dutchess County neighbor, New York City real estate mogul and Democratic Party kingmaker Henry Morgenthau, Sr., whom the the Roosevelt clan all called “Uncle Henry.” Uncle Henry, according to Dall, was able to prevail upon FDR to make his feckless son, Henry, Jr., his Secretary of the Treasury because FDR was beholding to the father for having had a big investment loss restored by Henry, Sr., some years before.  Dall’s account of the appointment is tantalizing:

In due course, Henry was placed by FDR in a suitable “spot,” one for which he had no significant financial 1258040926FDR_HenryMjr-380experience…The Secretary of the Treasury.  However, in the minds of some important bankers here and abroad, Henry’s inexperience in that connection was his most important qualification for that post.  It made him receptive to much needed “advice.”  The “advice” extended in his direction, of course, was readily forthcoming.

Harry Dexter White, Henry’s close associate and busy right-hand man in the Treasury, was soon “dug up” for him.  Who arranged that move?  Certainly it was not provided by FDR.  Was it Mr. [Bernard] Baruch or Henry’s father or some foreign banking group?  Harry Dexter White became a profitable delivery boy for them but not for us.  Certainly his disastrous financial manipulations aimed primarily to enrich the money powers were soon to become far more discernible to alert Americans than his reported New England internment, following his sudden heart attack, curiously acquired on the morrow of his overdue exposure before a Congressional investigation. (p. 85)

Find the hand pulling White’s (ne. Weit) strings and you will have found those pulling Roosevelt’s.  Isaac Don Levine very distinctly remembers that White was among those named by Whittaker Chambers as members of the Soviet espionage ring in their meeting with Adolf Berle in 1939.  Chambers doesn’t recall that but in his book, Witness, he says that White cooperated with his spy ring even though White was not a Communist Party member.  If White was really working for the international bankers who were instrumental in bringing the Bolsheviks to power in Russia, one might say that by not being in the employ of Joe Stalin White was just cutting out the middleman.

White was later to become the principal author of the infamous Morgenthau Plan that called for the destruction of Germany’s manufacturing, vengefully reducing it to an economic wasteland ripe for Communist takeover.  Recently it has been plausibly argued in two books that White was a moving force behind the provocative U.S. posture that led to the Pearl Harbor attack.  See The Battle for Bretton Woods: John Maynard Keynes, Harry Dexter White, and the Making of a New World Orderand Operation Snow: How a Soviet Mole in FDR’s White House Triggered Pearl Harbor.

Another person who, early on, exhibited a lot of influence on FDR was Felix Frankfurter.  Again, Dall’s account is intriguing:

Naturally, at any gathering, I had to guess those who were “important,” those who were “relatively unimportant,” and, finally, those who were quite “unimportant!!!”

Felix-Frankfurter

Seated around the dinner table at Hyde Park one Sunday noon in December of 1932 was the usual large gathering of interesting people.

One of them happened to be Professor Felix Frankfurter, who had arrived from Harvard University for a conference with FDR.

As I recall, he was placed on the right side of Mama; therefore, I knew he was regarded as “important.”  She usually was flanked by the two most important personages then present.  The President-elect and his mother took on the next echelon of importance during the meal.

Something puzzled me, however, concerning which I had recurring thoughts—why would a college professor at Harvard come all the way from Cambridge, Massachusetts, to Hyde Park to see FDR at this time?  Could it be in connection with some new educational program at Harvard?  Was it a social visit, or did Frankfurter want something for himself?  Most callers did want something?  What was it? (pp. 65-66)

The implied question in the passage is, “From what did this law professor derive his importance to Roosevelt at this time?” That leads to the question as to what powerful people were behind him and from what was their power derived.  Whoever they were, they certainly accomplished a great deal through him.  Let us fast-forward to the end of the 1940s as recounted by John Beaty:

In fact, Mr. Justice Frankfurter is frequently referred to by those who know their way around Washington as the “President” of the United States.  In a recent “gag,” the question “Do you want to see a new picture of the President of the United States?” is followed up by showing a likeness of Frankfurter.

Mr. Justice Frankfurter is influential not only in counsel but in furthering the appointment of favored individuals to strategic positions.  The so-called “Frankfurter boys” include Mr. [Dean] Acheson, with whom the justice takes daily walks, weather permitting (New York Times, January 19, 1949); Alger Hiss, Lee Pressman, David Niles, ** long a senior assistant to President Truman; Benjamin V. Cohen, long Counselor of the Department of State; David Lilienthal, long Chairman of the Atomic Energy Commission; John J. McCloy, Joe Rauh, Nathan Margold; Donald Hiss, brother of Alger, and “now a member of the Acheson law firm”; Milton Katz; and former Secretary of War Robert Patterson, “a hundred per cent Frankfurter employee” (all names and quotes in this paragraph are from Drew Pearson’s syndicated column, February 1, 1950). (p. 58)

Considering his own ethnic background, one should hardly be surprised at the heavy Jewish representation in the list, but that four of the eleven men on the list, Pressman, Niles, and the Hiss brothers should be likely Communist subversives is really quite striking.  Furthermore, Acheson and Frankfurter publicly declared that Alger Hiss was innocent well past the time when it was evident that he was not.

On the night of his first encounter with Frankfurter, Dall was asked by Eleanor Roosevelt to keep Frankfurter company on their train ride back into New York City.  After a period of some awkward silence it occurred to Dall to break it by mentioning a mutual acquaintance.  Dall had gone both to high school and to Princeton University with James “Chink” Landis, who was at that time a colleague of Frankfurters at the Harvard Law School and had co-written articles with him.  Dall broached the subject and here’s how the exchange went:

By now Frankfurter was eyeing me rather intently.  Then he said, “What do you think of James today?”

“Well, Professor,” I replied, “I haven’t seen ‘Chink’ for a number of years.  However, knowing his ability, I would say that he would do very well indeed in whatever undertaking he set out to accomplish.  Some of his views, however, that is, some of his political views, I would say, are a bit too far to the left.  I sometimes hear indirectly about him through my brother-in-law, Jimmy, and…”

I stopped talking, at that point, rather amazed.

The Professor’s face flushed with surprise and anger at my casual observation.  He made no attempt at concealment.  He glared at me and naturally our conversation ceased abruptly.  Silence ensued.

I was quite taken aback at the unexpected turn of events and wondered what I could have said to cause such an unfavorable and violent reaction in the mind of the well-known Harvard “Legal Light.”

As the silence deepened, I became quite annoyed, in turn, at what appeared to me to be a rather unwarranted display of temperament on his part. (pp. 68-69)

Dall later discovered that Frankfurter was a close friend of the prominent political theorist, Harold Laski.  Some Harvard law students who had been given a letter of introduction to Laski by Frankfurter took the liberty to ask him if he was a Communist.  Laski responded without hesitation that he was.  When asked if his friend Frankfurter was one as well, Laski paused for a bit and then asked, “Did you ask me if Felix was a Communist?”

“Yes we did,” was the response.

Laski then replied, “Well, no, I wouldn’t say that Felix is a Communist, but we are close friends.  We talk to each other at least once every week, over the trans-Atlantic telephone.”

Who Were the Communists?

H.uey_8

Rather to ask if Roosevelt was a Communist, the better question to ask is if the people with the real power who were behind him were Communists.  The preponderance of evidence suggests that they were, or at least that they pursued the interests of the Soviet Union above the interests of the United States.  One of main reasons for that was the lingering good will felt among the Jewish leadership in the United States toward the Soviet Communists because they had thrown out the hated Czars.  The Jewish hatred of the Czars in the late 19th century and through much of the 20th century rivaled the residual hatred of the Nazis today.  One can’t help but think that Roosevelt was just parroting what he had picked up from his handlers when he repeatedly compared Stalin favorably to the Czars.  He was hardly a student of Russian history, after all.

The power and influence of Roosevelt’s Jewish handlers were at their height during the war years with the pro-Soviet Henry Wallace as Roosevelt’s heir apparent as Vice-President and the pro-Soviet Harry Hopkins at his side planning war policy.  The insurrection among Democratic Party leaders that forced FDR to replace Wallace with Truman represented a vital beginning of the easing of the pro-Communist grip.  The forced renunciation of the insanely vengeful Morgenthau Plan through outraged public opinion was another great step in the right direction.

Those who might argue that the power behind Roosevelt could not have been primarily Jewish or he would not have been anti-Zionist fail to reckon with the fact that some of the strongest opponents of Zionism at that time were Jewish.  These included perhaps his closest handler of all, Henry Morgenthau, Sr., as well the powerful New York Times publisher, Arthur Hays Sulzberger.  Much of the Jewish energy that now mainly goes into building up Israel, in Roosevelt’s day, unfortunately, went into the promotion of the Soviet Union.

Who Are The Real Parasites?

Are they the Jason Greenslates of the world?

Jason-Greenslate-2

29-Year-Old Welfare Parasite Would Not Accept An $80,000 A Year Job Driving A Truck

These baby eaters (people like Michael Snyder, who wrote the piece) use someone like Sean Hannity, (an uneducated baby eater who somehow went from traveling the country Hannityeatsbabydoing general contracting work and bar tending to TV fame… seemingly by sucking up to the sweJ)  as some sort of role model for work ethic to attack the people who have no real job potential and are conditioned to be the “welfare parasites” he suggests they are. Now I don’t know much about Snyder, but something tells me that his gig (writing blogs and books) probably pays pretty well because he was an attorney who quit (or was fired?) and started writing. Something tells me he would not sit his ass in a trucker’s seat for any amount of money, even if his idol, Sean Hannity, could get him the job after his blogs were deleted by Homeland Security and books spontaneously combusted.

Yes, Michael, please use a Fox News Millionaire to educate us on what a real work ethic is.

But I digress from my point.

I am not defending this Greenslate guy in as much as I am trying to remonstrate the massive hypocrisy of a well-to-do writer calling attention to the poorparasite man’s parasitism and NOT looking at the elephant in the room who is truly the real blood-sucking scroungers that have taken America’s wealth and left us ignorant, jobless and destitute.

America was built off the white European work ethic. Diversity has produced an entire group of dependent folks with little to no work ethic. The take-over of education by these same culprits dumbs down the young ones and fosters a dependency mindset, not to mention total laziness (just compare Common Core to what I grew up with in the 1960′s school systems). Even from the lowest educated state in the union (Mississippi), I was taught upper level math courses, sciences, and history (albeit tainted from the government’s point of view). If you failed… you FAILED and stayed back to do it all over again. Today, no one is “left behind” and everyone gets to pass (work hard or not).

Maybe you should watch the B’Man original video derived from Greg’s work at The Goon Squad to understand what a real parasite is:

My mother is German (born in 1942 and raised in WWII’s horrifying aftermath). The German work ethic is unbelievable and she taught me to earn for myself and not depend on any entity. She had me working from the time I was 13 years old, until I was 17, then I took two more jobs on top of the one she and Dad furnished me that took me through my first two years of college (flipping hamburgers and as a DJ at a skating rink). By George, I know what it is to work.

But let us face realities that many “old guys” seem to forget,  ignore, or are too ignorant to understand. We must understand that where we find ourselves as a society is purposeful and orchestrated. We are brainwashed to believe thisBankers-and-Tick1 is how it should be. With each and every generation, the work ethic is watered down to near nothingness. The Haves are able to send kids to schools (private) which still teach certain priorities and skill-sets, whereas poor folk don’t get those same training and enlightenment possibilities. Schools like I once attended no longer teach the same methods and curriculum. Sports get all the money and the arts get nothing. A wonderful lady I graduated high school with (who went on to teach young children in the same public school) recently told me she wants out, for in her opinion, they are designedly dumbing the kids down.

Fred On Everything illustrates my “dumbing down” point by discussing “Blended Learning” in Brooklyn, New York (and you wonder why there are so many illiterates with no chance at actually attaining the “decent jobs” that no longer exist in this country):

Despite much wringing of teeth and gnashing of hands about the decline in schooling in the United States, I have seen very little concrete comparison between then and now, whatever one means by “then.” In my small way, as a mere anecdote in a sea of troubles, I hereby offer an actual comparison. Permit me to preview the result: Much of the United States has sunk to the level of the lower ranks of the Third World.

DeliberateDumbingDownAs an example of documented current practice in urban schools—I have seen similar from Detroit, Chicago, and Mississippi—here are a few emails sent to the New York Post by students of Manhattan’s Murry Bergtraum HS for Business Careers. These have been posted by various horrified writers, but I repeat them here in case the reader hasn’t seen them. They concern the students’ support for something called “Blended Learning,” in which one watches a video, answers a few questions, and gets credit. The Post had written a piece critical of same, putting the students into an uproar.

A junior wrote: “What do you get of giving false accusations im one of the students that has blended learning I had a course of English and I passed and and it helped a lot you’re a reported your support to get truth information other than starting rumors . . .”

Right out of Milton, that.

Another wrote: “To deeply criticize a program that has helped many students especially seniors to graduate I should not see no complaints.”

One student said the online system beats the classroom because “you can digest in the information at your own paste.”

Now, I have no information on what things they do not know other than English. Approximately everything, I suspect. I do know that growing up long ago in average white schools from kindergarten onwards, I learned to speak better English by the second grade than these high-school students—“students”—will likely ever speak. I could write much better English. I think it reasonable to suspect that kids who want to digest in information at their own paste probably do not know a lot of algebra or chemistry. We are producing illiterate, unemployable barbarians inassimilable to a First World country.

Let us move along at my slow, redneck “paste”…

22-corp2

We must note that as people like Snyder seem to dislike the slugs who get a few hundred bucks a month (with the cursory attempt to address the people who simply can NOT find work, much less an $80K/year job some TV personality says he can get him), but where is he addressing the real Welfare Queens like the bankers and giant corporations who get $60-80BILLION/month (which dwarfs the slugs’ meager pittance)? And how about the giant corporations who off shore their headquarters and pay ZERO taxes. Or folks like Facebook and GE owners who get all sorts of subsidies and tax breaks where I (a poor Tennessean) pay more in actual taxes than they do.

lendmil

If someone wants to bitch, then why not harp on these same giant corp asswipes that sent all the decent paying jobs to China (or anywhere else to maximize profit while strangling to death the American worker who made it possible for them to rip us all off), enabling them to enjoy their Mega bonuses and tax free lifestyles?

I would say that focusing on some rock band punk who is the least problematic and not addressing the REAL issues shows stupidity or worse.

I have shared the following video before, but it shows us a little bit about the “baby eater” phenomena I elude to (again, one of my favorite videos of all time) and how we should band together to stop it:
