July 21, 1973 -- Paul Krassner and I decided to publish Conspiracy Newsletter a year ago.
The arrests at the Watergate Hotel, and the magnitude of the events taking place, occupied my year.
Nine years research into past government conspiracies and previous election manipulations was the background for the newsletter.
The Watergate witnesses, and evidence about the illegal entry into the Democratic National Headquarters, was a continuation of earlier investigative work.
One year later, with almost 700 subject files assembled on the Watergate espionage operation, Conspiracy Newsletter is finally getting started.
For those who subscribed a year ago and waited, thank you.
Many people asked me why, after many years of research, my first published, article was in The Realist?
The answer is simple.
I respect Paul Krassner. For ten years, I have subscribed to The Realist.
Only the alternative press has been faithful to the freedoms we deserve.
At a time when Deep Throat is making $50-million, indicating a desire and taste of free adults to choose their own entertainment, the Supreme Court permits others to dictate what we shall see or read.
Nixon's Supreme Court is a worse danger to our liberties than sexual pleasures.
Freedom of the press, freedom to live and to love is what the struggle is all about. There are hundreds of conspiracies taking place. They are all ordered from the White House.
Political assassinations, the killing of Presidential candidates, is for the purpose of denying our maximum freedoms.
1. Knowledge Omitted from the Campus
The arrests at the Watergate Hotel in Washington D.C. took most Americans by surprise. We had been educated with a continuous series of denials that conspiracies at the White House level could exist.
The news media, a major source of information, treat high level conspiracies with platitudes, indifference, and unimaginative cover stories to conceal facts. Propaganda is an important weapon of the fascist state. TV and the media are filled with
clandestine agents, some posing as liberal writers, whose purpose is to break the credibility of researchers or discredit evidence that would confirm conspiracies.(1)
Colleges and academic institutions have no courses on agent provocateurs or how to recognize espionage operations.(2) When the accurate history of the 1960's and 70's is written about violence in the U.S., facts will reveal that government provocateurs created most of the violence. A series of our own Reichstag fires was the justification later for a domestic intelligence unit to deny our liberties guaranteed by the Constitution.(3)
There is no information available on ways to protect society from sabotage. The Watergate Affair exposes how investigators and the Dept. of Justice work with their espionage agents inacts which amount to treason.(4) Top lawyers of the nation, instead of obeying the law, worked in collusion with corporate interests for purposes of power and profits.(5) G. Gordon Liddy, counsel for the White House and CREEP, helped create the famous April 7, 1972 law which concealed donations and illegal corporate financing.
History classes devote little time to the evils of fascism. They never teach specific methods which bring the condition into existence. Classrooms in the U.S. never discuss the edicts of repression in Greece caused by the military junta in 1967. A coup d'etat, planned and financed in the U.S., would be informative to study as a protection against identical possibilities in this country.
What is avoided is a clear understanding of clandestine and covert acts and how they are carried out.(6) The electoral process and our civil liberties have been sabotaged. White House documents exist to prove this fact.(7)
The various techniques utilized to gain control of the population or to arrange conspiracies are being illustrated in the Watergate exposures. There will be pressure to halt the televised hearings or to detract from their significance because this is the first time we have been given even a peek at spies and the methods used to protect their operations. They are not difficult to follow. Once the agents and their procedures are identified and described, there may be a better chance to end the
continuous and systematic infiltration taking place.
Clandestine assignments are composed of a combination of acts whose main ingredients are secrecy and lies. Secrecy is necessary because most of the assignments and methods are illegal. The operations, when discovered, are covered by lies.(8)
The patterns of illegal, criminal spy operations, with certain agents reappearing in many of the same assignments, become more complicated every day, all CIA operations:
1. 1954 assassination of President Jacobo Arbenz Guzman, Guatamala. E. Howard Hunt, Frank Sturgis involved in this murder, identical to Kennedy assassination in 1963. After the President was killed, an "extreme leftist," "lone assassin" was murdered .
2. Richard Nixon, 4th Crisis, Latin American tour, cold war propaganda. Votes were lagging for Eisenhower and Dick. The CIA arranged this tour, now easily staged for "hard on Communists" line. Nixon briefed by CIA; told by Allen Dulles of intelligence estimates of anti-American demonstration. Col. Vernon Walters, CIA, Nixon's interpreter. Gen. Robert Cushman, CIA, gave rundowns of reactions to riots. E. Howard Hunt in Latin America, attached to CIA station, 1956-60. His cover was advisor to Defense Dept. in Latin America.
3. U-2 night over USSR, to sabotage summit conference for cold war. Allen Dulles, working with James McCord, who found and identified the Soviet intelligence agent questioned by the airmen. Lee Harvey Oswald, Navy Intelligence, trained in radar at Atsugi Air Base where U-2's monitored. Oswald watching for possible vapor trails over USSR. E. Howard Hunt was engaged during the '50s in the U-2 spy plane project. He arranged the takeoff and landing flights for CIA aircraft.
4. Bay of Pigs. Richard Nixon in charge of that operation, wanted nothing wrong. Bob Cushman and Howard Hunt had private phones into the White House. When Hunt needed his contacts, Nixon and Cushman had been supplanted by Kennedy in the White House. Bernard Barker, Frank Sturgis, Martinez, Gonzales and the entire Watergate cast of Miami Cubans working during Bay of Pigs and in Watergate operation. In My Six Crisis Nixon took credit for the covert training of Cuban exiles by the CIA.
5. 1963 assassination of President Kennedy. Jose Romero, soldier of fortune, approached by hired assassination team from the U.S. which planned to kill Kennedy during his 1961 visit to France. Romero definitely remembers Frank Sturgis as one of the representatives from the U.S. James McCord, according to Louis Tackwood, was in Dallas the day Kennedy was shot, and flown afterwards to the Carribean. The National Archives have FBI reports indicating Frank Sturgis a friend of Lee Harvey Oswald and David Ferrie. Sturgis had a Miami arsenal of weapons, and original plans were to kill JFK in Miami in 1963.
6. Plans to assassinate the President of Panama in 1971. Hunt and Liddy, working in White House, used Operation Intercept as their cover. The President of Panama was not "cooperating" in control of narcotics, and one of their jobs was to kill him.
7. ITT, CIA, Chile, and Watergate. William Broe, CIA, offered ITT to help "create economic chaos in Chile." Broe, as CIA agent, combed their files to determine if CIA was involved in Watergate. This cleaning out is identical to L. Patrick Gray looking for evidence in the FBI reports. Hunt and Liddy, while in the White House, worked for the CIA and ITT at the same time, helping out with Dita Beard's kidnapping and hospitalization in Denver.
8. Ellsberg, Dr. Fielding robbery. Hunt, Liddy, members of the Cuban committee working for the CIA. Gen. Robert Cushman supplied the cameras, film developing, disguises, safe houses.
None of these people, including the President, believe they are breaking any laws. Certain members of the Defense Intelligence Agency, CIA, Division V of the FBI, Secret Service, armed forces and National Security Council have been warfare killers and war criminals for a long time. They are now conducting para-military warfare inside the U.S.
Opening Statement by Senator Sam J, Ervin Jr. Before the Senate Select Committee on Presidential Campaign Activities -- May 17, 1973, the first day of the hearings
What they were seeking to steal was not the jewels, money or other property of American citizens, but something much more valuable, their most precious heritage, the right to vote in a free election.
The Select Committee must probe into assertions that the very system itself has been subverted and its foundations shaken.
If the allegations that have been made in the wake of the Watergate Affair are substantiated, there has been a very serious subversion of the integrity of the electoral process, and the committee will be obliged to consider the manner in which such a subversion affects the continued existence of this nation as a representative democracy, and how, if we are to survive, such subversions may be prevented in the future.
Following the Watergate break-in, there has been a massive attempt to cover up all the improper activities.
Evidence that has surfaced has cast a black cloud of distrust over our entire society. Our citizens do not know whom to believe, and many of them have concluded that all the processes of government have become so compromised that honest government has been rendered impossible.
The health, if not the survival of our social structure and of our form of government requires the most candid and public investigation of all the evidence and of all the accusations that have been leveled at any persuns, at whatever level, who were engaged in the 1972 campaigns.
My colleagues on the Committee and I are determined to uncover all the relevant facts surrounding these matters, and to spare no one, whatever his station in life may be, in our efforts to accomplish this goal.
The American people are looking to this committee for enlightenment and guidance regarding the details of the allegations regarding the subversion of our electoral and political process.
The purpose of this committee is to provide full and open public testimony in order that the nation can proceed toward the healing of wounds that now afflict the body politic.
The nation and history itself are watching us.
We cannot fail our mission.
Murders, conspiracies, entrapment, assaults, false imprisonments are part
of warfare. Unsuspecting citizens are taken by surprise because they did not
realize that white America was the enemy. Blacks, Indians and Chicanos have
known for a long time the open warfare against their existence. Watergate is an
education into a civil war which is not likely to go away without a struggle.
Expect a counter-attack by the White House and even the armed forces if
A web of conspiracies has been strangling this nation. The names, departments and chains of command are being identified.
Political conspiracies are divided into three sections. There are those who carry out the assignment, others who cover it up, and the collusion of the courts that protect both the conspirators and those who come later and cover up the crimes.
The Watergate Affair, being a government top-level conspiracy, falls into that category.
The Senate Select Committee on Presidential Campaign Activities is part of the cover-up.
Their structure and methods are reminiscent of the fictitious Warren Report their colleagues put together for us ten years ago.
Are these errors caused by ignorance or stupidity or complicity? The question was asked to Haldeman if any of the demonstrators were known to be paid for by McGovern or Wallace or other opponents. The question that wasn't asked was how much Republican money paid provocateurs to defecate or urinate on the streets in Miami. There is evidence existing that they were in fact hired including a female FBI agent that was swimming nude at the convention.
Are the errors only one more con game upon citizens deserving better than what they are getting from the witnesses?
Spiro Agnew praised the Watergate hearings. He said they are "evidence that our society is more open than ever." Instead of secret hearings, they are open and allow us to watch the cover-up. If they were doing their job with an understanding of the magnitude of espionage, Agnew would be investigated at the same time because he is part of the problem: the selection of our candidates being forced upon us via created violence and murders.
The election sabotage that took place, and the desperation to win the 1972 elections, had as much to do with Agnew supporters as Nixon associates.
James Earl Ray, alleged assassin of Martin Luther King, said "King had to be killed in an election year." It was Agnew who gained from this conspiracy. He had close ties with the FBI, was prompted into an anti-black law and order position for election purposes.
Greek military money, expressly for Agnew, running into millions, secretly stashed away, determines our foreign policy in the Middle East. Oil profits and military interests have pushed Agnew into the Vice-Presidency.
The Constitution made no provisions for election robberies or clandestine agents as candidates. President Nixon, intelligence agencies and the armed forces were denying our Constitutional rights, then expect an orderly Constitutional succession of
This situation is the first of its kind in the U.S. and should be tested by popular election. Senator Muskie or Kennedy would defeat Agnew tomorrow, indicating he does not represent the majority in this democracy.
The election was a fraud, and Agnew supporters and finances were directly involved in the Watergate Affair through Mullen Associates and specific White House aides.
There are many methods of conducting a lengthy, voluminously and costly investigation without ever serving truth or justice. While giving the appearance of attempting to solve Phase I of the Watergate Affair, there is a basic dishonesty exhibited in the unskilled procedures.
No wonder American citizens are as confused about the
White House espionage squad as they were a year ago. The Senate Select Committee, by making many errors, increases the problem of solving sabotage and conspiracy. Some of these include:
1. Wrong witnesses called. Last July, 1972, it was obvious that Al Wong, the Secret Service man who hired James McCord, should be a major witness. When it was disclosed by Alexander Butterfield that the White House was bugged, Al Wong appeared to be holding the tapes. Wong and McCord were close associates.
Other men were at the Watergate, and fled to Miami. They were never arrested or called as witnesses.
Donald Segretti was "one of fifty agents." Where are the other forty-nine?
Who controls the Washington prison that sent men in to beat up Liddy and Hunt the night before they testified before the Grand Jury?
There were two guards on duty at the Watergate Hotel on June 17, 1972. One "went home early." Who arranged that?
The Watergate Hotel manager knew the espionage team. He was told to "shut up" and never interviewed.
2. Wrong questions are asked. When the correct witness is on the stand, the wrong questions are asked. It is impossible to shed lighten a problem made more difficult by the roundabout methods of covering up.
3. Change of subject. When the right witness is on the stand, and the correct question is asked, there is a quick change of subject to obstruct information that might flow. After a Senate vote, many good questions are dropped. The Warren Commission went "off the record." The voting pattern serves to break up the testimony and evidence.
4. Questions are made out in advance. There is a narrow inquiry into Phase I, the Watergate, which can't be limited, the hotel entry is part of the entire "plumbers operation." They can't be separated. Their plans for violence and provocateurs has to do with the Democratic offices entry.
The John Kennedy assassination, and Jack Ruby's killing Oswald, were one espionage plan. The Warren Commission, and Ruby's trial, attempted to have the public believe these were separate, isolated events. In the same manner, the Senate Committee and witnesses involved want to separate the "caper" from the "horror story." Both involved identical plans, funds and a team that worked together for many years doing the same kinds of sabotage.
5. Time limits imposed. The restoration of confidence in government will come about by delving into all leads, not being limited by a clock or calendar. The testimony of Tony Ulasewicz's other assignments was cut off` for "lack of time." Hours spent on repetitious questions. Important matters are limited in subject matter by a 10-minute agreement.
6. Not equipped to recognize or question espionage agents. The Senate Committee asks serious questions without clarifying the lies, perjuries, denials as being part of the operation.
There are other ways of locating evidence of sabotage.
Witnesses are allowed face-saving devices without being exposed as employed in intelligence work. If Ulasewicz had been allowed to describe his "thirty-five assignments for the White House," a conclusion, not so humorous, would be drawn. The most serious witness became the comedian.
7. No cross-examination. Mild discrepancies, important, are ignored. James McCord said he had "nothing to do with the Kennedy assassination," which may be a fact regarding not shooting the weapon. His presence in Dallas on that day, or identification of the plane that took him to the Caribbean would be helpful in describing some of McCord's duties for the CIA.
8. Documentary evidence exits to illustrate charges of treason and conspiracy. Arthur Bremer's second gun, found in his car, and bullets taken from the Wallace shooting, could be compared.
The White House inter-agency espionage operational plans could be shared with the public to understand the minds in the Oval Office.
Louis Tackwood's tapes of the planned San Diego martial law for 1972 could be played and exposed.
In spite of the White House logs being denied for examination, and massive evidence destroyed, there is enough evidence available to purge an administration that remains in power.
9. Deaths, threats of death, assaults. The Senate Committee is not interested in the jail problems, local police and CIA working together. G. Gordon Liddy was hurt in a prison fight the night before his appearance at the Grand Jury.
E. Howard Hunt was beat up the night before his Grand Jury testimony in May, 1973.
Evidence of sabotaging Mrs. Dorothy's Hunt's plane is silenced.
Questions are not asked Tony Ulasewicz regarding the death of Mary Jo Kopechne. What hour did he arrive on the island? Was he there before she was killed? One security guard saw Mary Jo asleep in back of the car at 11 p.m. Who was that? The guard was giving press interviews to Time, Colson's outlet for smear.
James McCord stated he had "worked for the CIA long enough" to know he could be killed once he was sent to prison. The phone call McCord received from Tony Ulasewicz, attempting to force a "guilty plea" like the others, was interpreted as a threat to his family and himself.
The only member of the Senate Committee who shows the appropriate disgust and anger is Senator Weicker. He seems to understand clandestine operations and the slimey arrogance of super-patriots who disgrace our nation.
Members of the Black Caucus once asked then-Attorney General John Mitchell about future programs. He answered, "Don't listen to what I say, watch what I do." This same advice would serve investigators solving conspiracy operations. Concealing and covering by lies and perjury will never expose the crimes committed by this team.
Going back to the John Kennedy assassination, to Robert Kennedy's murder and the other tragedies they arranged, the bullets, autopsies, medical reports all exist to prove conspiracies. It is time to examine evidence and not ask the masters of subversion for answers to stupid questions. Watergate has logs, evidence, arrangements for Miami, tapes of treason. Get them out in the open, and we shall be the judge.
Senator Ervin said the "government was subverted," "citizens do not know whom to believe," "the processes of government were compromised."
Don't depend on liars or Senate Committees who are guilty of covering the Nixon Administration they are criticizing. Just produce the documents and homicide records. We can figure out what is happening for ourselves and save time and money wasted in perpetuating a dying system of government. There is no place for the CIA, DIA, intelligence operations or their continuous infiltrations.
The Senate Committee is arranging the witnesses and questions in such a way that little can be accomplished to prevent the continuation of the existing military junta.
A. Concealing the motives
The twenty-million-dollar question: More than a year has passed since the illegal entry into the Democratic National Headquarters in Washingtom D.C. The motive for this assignment, planned almost six months in advance, remains the carefully guarded secret. There is reason for this silence, and it is not the lack of evidence. The men who planned the operation, as well as those who covered it up, and the courts investigating, wish to keep this important information secret. Why?
Racism, prejudices and fears of changing the status quo are so deeply embedded into our ruling class that there is a silent and tacit agreement to protect each other. "National security" may be used to soften the inquiry, as it was used to lock up the evidence on the John Kennedy assassination.
It is impossible, the way the courts are constructed, to force any revelations that would damage the existing power structure. If Richard Nixon moves out of office, Spiro Agnew moves in and Ronald Reagan will follow him. The depth of corruption and links to the sabotage will not be touched. A power base of manipulations and political dishonesty, which funds all these men, remains.
My Lai, Kent State, Attica, riots at Isla Vista, the San Quentin shootout. political assassinations, illegal bombings, Jackson State and a hundred other conspiracies are covered up.
Exposing white America, the so-called law and order people, as being burglars, wiretappers. forgers, extortionists and thieves can only go so far. They can obstruct justice, get refunds on illegal donations, commit perjury and violate election laws. To prosecute them as murderers, criminals or conspirators never happens. Treason is not even whispered when that is exactly what is taking place.
Last year was the most important election in U.S. history. Corporations and conglomerates were meeting a crisis. Special interests such as ITT, Howard Hughes, oil companies, warfare contractors and aerospace industries always selected the President and Vice-President, but this victory was vital in 1972.
Certain countries were getting more active against conglomerates. Kidnappings and confiscations could escalate. The ITT, inside the USA, was almost divested of interests this Administration saved for them.
Chile's President Salvadore Allende spelled matters out in the UN. He charged the "ITT, CIA and armed forces with creating economic chaos, altering free elections, instigating civil war and wanting to create a military dictatorship." This pattern of cold war manipulation that we enforced in over 90 countries could be halted with a new administration.(9)
Warfare industries were in trouble without a Nixon-Agnew victory. The war in Asia could escalate after elections. The Middle East is waiting for their U.S.-fomented war next. A Democratic president might change the course of U.S. economic dependence on warfare hardware into domestic needs. There is less profit in building the U.S. than in bombing Cambodia or importing and distributing narcotics with CIA transportation. The drug traffic from Asia involves more billions than military profits.
Anti-war protestors, partlcularly Vietnam Veterans, were an embarrassment.
Domestic programs were to be solved with Caspar "the Ax" or Malek "the Hatchet" once the 'mandate' was declared.(10)
The election victory of Nixon-Agnew was ordered. Maurice Stans went around telling the corporations exactly what percentage to put into the till. The foot soldiers then put the money to work.
Over $60,000,000 went into Republican funds to re-elect the incumbent and popular President.
Another $20,000,000 secret cash -- much in consecutive $100 bills -- was set aside to be sure they won the elections by any means necessary. That is where the motives for the Watergate Hotel entry start to become important. The conservative Republican, the old guard traditional politician who can win or lose elections fairly, becomes separated from the espionage operation. Some money goes into legal spending such as TV time, office expenses, etc. And some money goes into the illegal guarantee of success when the polls close.
There are a lot of reasons for keeping political donations to the President and Vice-President secret.(11) None of them except the obvious illegal discretions require such complicated secrecy. If more than favors are expected, and serious crimes will be committed to select candidates through violence, all techniques of secret funding are employed.
The $5300 in consecutive $100 bills found on the Watergate espionage squad were part of the complicated funding.
Potential candidates for the 1968 and 1972 elections were eliminated by murder, a created scandal involving a murder, attempted murder, forgery and harassments. These favors require a lot of money that will never be accounted for. They might be the missing millions.
Twenty million dollars was delivered in cash, some of it deliberately burned to conceal consecutive numbers. Donations were hidden in 45-90 dummy fronts that never existed. Money was pulled from "1968" accounts in Mexico, the Middle East, Switzerland, Los Angeles, New York, Houston and other cities.
Complicated money washings went through 5 or 6 operations, travelled from Texas, to Mexico, Houston, Washington, Florida, and back to Washington. Safes with cash were inside the White House, Maurice Stans' offices and elsewhere. Consecutive $100 bills were passed in suitcases, unmarked envelopes, put in desk drawers while the recipient left the room.
Money was given to unknown persons, for unknown reasons, from unknown sources, left in telephone booths, passed inside taxicabs, near airports, handed on park benches, in hotel lobbies, on golf courses, and donated from some kind friends from the Philippines.
A super secret account was located in Bethesda, Maryland under the name of Henry Buchanan, brother of White House aide Patrick Buchanan.(12)
Donald Nixon made two secret trips to Greece for a $10-million Loan from Marriott Corporation during the time Republicans were seeking money to silence the Watergate defendants.(13) Martha Mitchell was delivered to the Marriott New York apartment, a la Dita Beard, after her abduction from California and her famous call to Helen Thomas of UPI.(14)
Martha said she would be getting $2,000,000 for a book -- a silence bribe. Marina Oswald was offered $125,000 to write a book; it was never published. Howard Hunt sent a message to the White House, saying he was writing a book. This is a typical clandestine message in seeking a bribe.
Edward Nixon, the President's other brother, flew a helicopter from New York to New Jersey to discuss the famous $200,000 that was delivered at the airport, donated from Robert Vesco. Nixon made the decision of whether it would be check or cash.(15)
The Federal Reserve System distributes money to commercial banks, but were unable to trace $10,000 found in consecutive $100 bills marked with the serial "B." The money, found in Mrs. Dorothy Hunt's purse after her fatal airplane crash, was not recorded in New York. "Unlike other areas, this bank does not keep track of the serial numbers."(16)
At least eight persons connected with the mysterious funding alone have been killed since last year.(l7) Provocateurs had been paid those CIA consecutive $100 bills in Miami, and reservations were made for demonstrations to take place.
Where was all this secret money going?
There is a way to find out.
Tony Ulasewicz, money bagman for Herbert Kalmbach (who wears gloves when he handles the cash), was paid $100,000 in 1969 by the President's attorney. Other years he earned $22,000 plus "expenses."
Ulasewicz has a New York accent.
Arthur Bremer, arrested for the Wallace shooting and recently denied a re-trial, was seen in Michigan, talking politics with a man 6'2", weighing 220 lbs., "with a New York accent."
Maryland police stopped a suspect after the George Wallace shooting, described as 6'2", weighing 220 lbs., in a light blue Cadillac.
Arthur Bremer was spending a lot of money for airplane tickets, the Waldorf-Astoria Hotel in New York, nights at the ITT Sheraton Plaza in Maryland, and with a CIA agent in Toronto at the Lord Elgin.
There was money spent in the Wallace shooting.
A New York accent, to be identified, should have been interviewed. Did any of the secret $20,000,000 go into the Wallace shooting?
Was Ulasewicz with Arthur Bremer?
Did any of the Kalmbach $400,000 from New York to defeat Wallace get to Maryland police, agents; were these funds involved in the Wallace shooting? Complicated money transactions were taking place, secure and secret; 1972 was almost secure for an election victory.
J. Edgar Hoover, who strenuously objected to the illegal sabotage, was dead.
The Domestic Intelligence Agency intended to have the Director of the FBI as their head. Hoover objected to every section of it, so it was unlikely they could proceed if he were alive.
L. Patrick Gray, on the other hand, was a master of stopping all investigations into Justice Dept. conspiracies. He quelched the Watergate Affair by burning documents, closed the ITT case, halted the Reuban Salazar and Jerie Lee Amie murder investigations in Los Angeles, stopped the Isla Vista riot investigation, halted the Teamsters-Mafia wiretapping regarding health plans in California. Gray fired U.S. Attorney Robert Meyer for refusing to prosecute the Ellsberg case. A few months later, after being afraid to oppose this administration as the "kiss of death," Robert Meyer was dead.
J. Edgar Hoover did not have an autopsy. His body was not removed in a hearse. There was no indication of poor health. There is reason to exhume his remains; the possibility of poison in the apple pie might be discovered as his last American supper.
Mary Jo Kopechne, former secretary of Senator Smathers of Florida, was dead, eliminating Senator Ted Kennedy as a candidate.
George Wallace's 20-26,000,000 votes were back in Republican ballot boxes.
Senator Muskie was sufficiently smeared to lose the New Hampshire primaries.
Senator Humphrey, followed by Sedan Chair 2 and Sedan Chair 88, was well under control, with a few smear letters thrown in for bad luck.
Senator Eagleton's hospital records were with John Ehrlichman, probably in the same drawer as the illegal bugging tapes ordered by Henry Kissinger and General Haig.
Things were looking pretty good for the GOP -- but.
What would happen if the Democrats came up with a combination of candidates who could still win the election in 1972? John Mitchell testified that "in June 1972 the Repllblicans were not sure of an election victory." And Ehrlichman testified that the surveillance changed from Muskie to McGovern and Ted Kennedy.
The only alternative remaining, to be sure of winning, would be the anticipated alternate solution which had been planned since the fall of 1971.
The CIA, Litton Industries and U.S.-aid tested a coup d'etat in Greece that is still going strong. The CIA, FBI and the armed forces practiced in the Philippines dictatorship only months before our election.
The CIA, DIA, FBI, armed forces, Internal Security, Secret Service and Justice Dept. would be called to help create martial law.
All the nation's top law enforcement agencies and top agents were cooperating in the Watergate operation. They aided in the cover-up, and they influence investigations now.
No matter what is claimed to the contrary, there is no way such an extravaganza of characters could be assembled for a "stupid" and "uninformative" adventure.
The highly trained team of Hunt, Liddy and McCord were arrested.
The nation came to a standstill and created an economic crisis abroad.
All investigative and government agencies were tainted and involved in the scandals of committing crimes or covering up.
The entry into the Democratic Headquarters was almost the culmination of two years preparations for assuring the 1972 election mandate.
The White House "plumbers" worked closely, in every CIA operation, with the armed forces and investigative agencies.
James McCord finally feared a CIA takeover identical to Nazi Germany intelligence operations.
J. Edgar Hoover feared the CIA takeover and destruction of all civil liberties. Hoover didn't mind helping a couple of Kennedys get killed, or the systematic slaughter of 28 Black Panthers, with more in prison today. He drew the line at martial law. He would not have allowed George Wallace to be assassinated.
The Plumbers Connection
David Young was working under Henry Kissinger at the National Security Council. He was transferred to head the White House "plumbers" unit under John Ehrlichman.
Young went to then-Director of the CIA Richard Helms to get a psychiatric profile of Daniel Ellsberg. Helms admitted that although the original 1947 charter of the CIA forbade them to engage in domestic intelligence, Young insisted that it was very important to the White House, that the assignment came from Ehrlichman's highest authority, and so the request was granted.
Helms testified that he put Young in touch with Howard Osborn to prepare the profile. FBI documents, included in the Warren Commission Hearings on the Assassination of John F. Kennedy (Vol. XXV, pp. 1-60), show that Albert Osborn, also known as John Howard Bowen, sat on the bus with Lee Harvey Oswald going to Mexico on September 26, 1963.
Osborn ran a missionary school in Mexico which was a front for political assassins sent all over the world. A Mr. Osborn purchased 1,000 "Hands Off Cuba" leaflets which Oswald distributed in New Orleans with Carlos Brienguier.
During the 1972 election campaign, Spiro Agnew is alleged to have taken several trips to New Orleans to meet with this same Carlos Brienguier who had provided Lee Harvey Oswald's "Communist" cover story by distributing leaflets paid for by Osborn.
Howard/Osborn is a name used in a previous assassination and reappears now as the contact man between the CIA and the White House, working with William Sullivan of Division V of the FBI in the "plumbers" -- the interagency spy group that even the late J. Edgar Hoover felt was a threat to the nation's civil liberties. Hoover had objected to the CIA using the FBI as a front for domestic intelligence.
Richard Nixon was in trouble, according to Andrew Tully, Hoover's friend.
He became surrounded with the same CIA McCord and Hoover feared. "He needed me
around to protect him from those people around him" -- stated by Hoover in
January, 1972 -- may be the reason Hoover had to be killed. This would fit into
the assassination plans for Nixon in the fall of 1972.
The top intelligence and law enforcement agents involved in the Watergate and gestapo operations were:
--Acting Director of the FBI, L. Patrick Gray
--William Sullivan, Division V, FBI, Domestic Security

W. Clement Stone, who contributed nearly $7-million to Republicans since 1968, said, "I felt this provided the one chance in a lifetime to change the course of history for the better." The feeling of necessity and desperation he expressed -- translated
into "better" business, I suppose -- was identical to the Attorney General and others who knowingly broke many laws in order to preserve the Presidency for two special men.
The illegal entry, for the second time, in the Democratic offices required nine men, a hotel room across the street, special "Gemstone" files, and a complicated system of passing the message to the Oval Office.
When five men were arrested on June 17, 1972, the frantic telephone calls, denials and secret meetings took place. White House aides were burning documents and carting away file boxes, opening Hunt's desk and safe.
The Gemstone papers had to be destroyed immediately.
The conversations taken from Mr. Oliver's telephone, copies of the tapes, has to be destroyed.
If conversations were "foolish and stupid, unfruitful," why not produce the tapes to show what an ill-advised adventure this was? That could have cleared the air.
But what if provocateurs had entered the Democratic offices -- Republican spies registered as Democrats such as Donald Segretti? Republicans had sent friends into the office before to secure room plans for the Miami conventions.
What if the telephones were used to discuss radicals, planned violence in Miami, or the intention to kill President Nixon?
James McCord testified that they were there "to look for information if President Nixon were secure in Miami." In clandestine operations, when you "look" you plant evidence.(18)
G. Gordon Liddy received campaign funds to determine what to do if the crazies made an attack on the President.
Louis Tackwood, agent provocateur 9 years with the Los Angeles Police, was hired to join this White House espionage squad for planned violence in San Diego. Those plans included "getting Nixon" after martial law was declared.(19)
Miami and San Diego police never worked security problems with Hunt, Liddy or McCord.
The Secret Service, FBI, armed forces could protect President Nixon without this secret espionage group. Andrew Topping, a wealthy New Yorker, had been making arrangements to murder Nixon between the nomination and the election.(20)
The very secretive Al Wong of Secret Service (he hired James McCord) and Alexander Butterfield knew every room Richard Nixon entered via the bugging devices. McCord, Hunt and Liddy could receive messages from Wong. Dwight Chapin, Nixon's appointment secretary, has been silent about Topping. Nobody mentions his name.
If conversations were produced after the planned events, martial law or Nixon's assassination, the anti-war protestors, radicals, McGovern supporters would be blamed.
G. Gordon Liddy proposed illegal kidnappings of radicals until after the elections. This other method would be legal, ordered by the armed forces. All the voices against future wars or domestic repressions would be in prison.
Internal Security provided the lists of desired political activists. They worked with James McCord every day in the spring before the Watergate arrests. The White House emergency service exists today. McCord's links have been silenced and ignored. In The Politics of Lying, David Wise describes McCord's important position with the military reserve unit, Special Analysis Division, with his preparation of a national watch-list.
The martial law plan would secure the presidency for selected agents Nixon and Agnew, silence protestors, and clear the way for a list of domestic strangulations upon civil liberties.
Many important witnesses who could shed light on the complicated motives for entry into the Democratic offices will never be called before the Senate Committee or by Special Prosecutor Archibald Cox unless we continue to expose their cover-up roles.
Sherman Skolnick, independent investigator from Chicago, has kept alive the facts about possible sabotage of United Airlines flight 553 with Mrs. Hunt killed. Other information and witnesses will be forced into the open if enough people demand
the truths be told.
B. Witnesses not called
1. Martha Mitchell
Who's afraid of Martha Mitchell?
White House documents signed by President Nixon were referred to as exhibiting a "gestapo mentality" by Senator Ervin.
Louis Tackwood said the Los Angeles Police Dept., connected to the White House special squad, wanted a "gestapo."
Fascism isn't a piece of paper.
The treatment of Martha Mitchell, up to the present time, exemplifies what dictatorship is about.
The cover-up and refusal to insist on her telling the full story is identical to the gestapo kangaroo courts. The Senate Committee is protecting the guilty. In California, after the arrests, she might know who was involved in the cover-up. At least seven people directly involved in the Watergate entry, planned months earlier, were with the Mitchells in California.
Kidnapping: Serious charges were made by Martha about being "kidnapped." When she called for help, the telephone was torn from the wall. All communications were removed. Only non-English-speaking persons entered her room. She was forcibly detained while her husband used their Washington D.C. apartment for clandestine meetings. Robert Mardian and Fred LaRue were meeting with Mitchell June 19, 1972 while Martha was forced to remain in California.
Private Armies: The White House hired private thugs to take care of demonstrators. "Unsalaried" police travelled with Nixon, tore down signs in Illinois. Private cop Tony Ulasewicz worked on a salary of $22,000 for political espionage. What private police force, four men, were called to contain Martha? Steve King couldn't handle her alone. She said there were five men. Hotel staff said they couldn't be responsible. California police and the FBI didn't come in. Where do the private guards come from?
Assault: Herbert Kalmbach, Nixon's attorney, took Mrs. Mitchell to the hospital. Strangers were occupying her room. Her body was very badly bruised in many places. Hospital records were not subpoenaed to see what care she required. Martha asked why the men who detained her were not arrested. They are not only not exposed, but promoted. Steve King, who did most of the damage, became Chief of Security for CREEP.
Mental illness: To this day, Martha is made to seem drunk, stupid, deranged. A psychiatric profile from the CIA is spread around. Like Jim Garrison, Dita Beard or Marguerite Oswald, when certain persons know too much about government conspiracies, they have to be discredited.
Bribery, blackmail: When Howard Hunt wanted money for silence, he said he was "going to write a book." Martha was offered $2,000,00a for a book. John Mitchell will never say anything to embarrass President Nixon. The book money could help support them for a few years.
Safe-Houses: Martha couldn't go back to her Washington apartment after the arrests. Moving her into the Marriott apartment in New York following the disclosures indicates the deep involvement of the high officials. That was no reason to dislodge a family, in an election year, when her husband would still be working with the President every day.
Protection of the guilty: No testimony taken from Martha. She said she could "name names." The phony investigators want her far removed. She will spoil the illusion of inquisitiveness. The real facts remain hidden in spite of the good TV show.
FBI are protected: Why were FBI men in her room? She didn't do anything wrong. Martha said her room in California was filled with the FBI. Did she mean John Mitchell, L. Patrick Gray, William Sullivan, or other members of the team?
Promotions: The guilty get promotions for their cooperation. Steve King, former employee of Senator Gurney of the Senate Committee, earned $18,000 a year working for him. He had a security clearance working in the Justice Department. Mitchell "loved King like a son." Steve King is now in the Dept. of Agriculture. Do they send out any of the thugs, who assaulted and injected Martha, to beat up United Farm Workers?
Martha Mitchell and James McCord: McCord was in the Mitchell apartment at the Watergate Hotel January 6, 1972. CREEP paid $207 for "technical inspection." John Mitchell was Attorney General at this time, and could have used the FBI, not private funds or McCord. The fee was for "smoke detectors." When arrested, McCord had a case marked Smoke Detectors. John Mitchell said he "only saw McCord once." Martha would know if there were any listening devices in their apartment that would be picked up at the DNC offices in the same hotel, with windows facing over a court.
2. Louis Tackwood
Louis Tackwood should have been the first witness before the Senate Committee.
In a press conference held on October 25, 1971, he asked Congress to investigate a secret espionage squad inside the White House.(21)
One year after the Watergate arrests, all of the Tackwood allegations are proven accurate. Listed below are his charges and a brief reference to massive evidence now available to support his warnings:
1. An espionage squad was formed inside the White House, a secret operation.
Judge Morell E. Sharp refused to work with the Domestic intelligence plan because it was "too secret." This was six months after it was allegedly "rescinded." No evidence exists to prove the necessity of the squad except for political sabotage. The Domestic Intelligence and Internal Security Group was the squad Tackwood referred to.
2. This secret squad was formed in the fall of 1971.
E. Howard Hunt, G. Gordon Liddy moved into White House in the fall of 1971. Donald Segretti, other operatives all started hiring provocateurs in the fall of 1971.
3. The group was connected to the FBI and other intelligence agencies.
William Sullivan, Division V, FBI, left J. Edgar Hoover to work with this group. Logs were taken from the FBI. FBI agents involved with Division V in other election manipulations.
4. Domestic White House police force connected to California, up and down the coast, working with Attorney General Evelle Younger.
California is the center of major Justice Dept. conspiracy cases. Black Panthers, Chicanos, political prisoners are victims of the White House espionage working with Asst. Attorney General Robert Mardian. The Grand Jury is used to force litigations, conspiracy trials and imprisonment.
5. Murders and violence were planned for the Republican National Convention in 1972.
Arsenals of weapons were being purchased for Miami. Violent demonstrations were being planned. Liddy, Hunt, LaRue were armed, with weapons in White House desk, attache cases. William Lemmer, special forces, U.S. agent, told his girlfriend, "Don't come to Miami. Stay out, there will be fighting and shooting."(22)
6. Provocateurs would be hired to cause violence.
Hundreds of Republicans were being brought in for demonstrations. Segretti was meeting Hunt to hire provocateurs. White House private phone, billed to Kathleen Chenow in Virginia, was used by Hunt for calls to Bernard Barker in Miami. Miss Chenow was immediately spirited to a London "vacation" after the Watergate arrests. She was secretary to White House "plumbers" head David Young.
7. Radicals were to be rounded up, Internal Security working to get them.
James McCord was meeting daily with Internal Security. Watergate squad had access to lists which belonged to other areas if protection from violence was the motive, rather than arrests.
8. Code names in white House to contact were "Martin" and "White."
James McCord registered at the Washington police station as Edward Martin. E. Howard Hunt was known as "White."(23)
9. Public Relations offices would cover the martial law and secret squad front.
Mullen Associates -- Hunt kept a desk here at the same time he worked at the White House, going back and forth between the two. Mullen represented the business interests of ITT and Howard Hughes. Hunt and Liddy were doing errands for ITT, kidnapping Dita Beard and interviewing her in Denver. Liddy was using Hughes airplane to capture valuable information -- allegedly Howard Hughes' game plans for elections -- in Las Vegas publisher Hank Greenspun's safe.
"Public Relations" -- the office name for CCS, the Los Angeles section of the Police Dept. that creates criminal conspiracies for White House purposes. FBI Public Relations -- L. Patrick Gray, who was part of the Justice Department's squad to put the lid on conspiracies, worked in the PR office awaiting confirmation as head of the FBI.
10. Ten million dollars was set aside for the secret martial law plans.
A secret $10 - or - $20 - million will never be accounted for. G. Gordon Liddy burned consecutive $100 bills that could be traced to the CIA for funding sabotage. Ten million was passed to provocateurs and others before March, 1972, in anticipation of the April 7th deadline when donors would be identified.
But the convention was moved in mid-March, because of the ITT scandal, from San Diego to Miami. That required approximately another $10-million for hired soldiers, provocateurs and imported violence to round up the radicals. This would explain the frantic effort to accumulate $10-million in only three weeks. April 5 - 6, Sloan testified $5 - 6 - million arrived in cash to the CREEP offices.
If the names did not have to be revealed before April 7, 1972, why did the money have to be delivered in cash?
How could so much of it be consecutively numbered bills?
12. After martial law was declared, the plans included getting Nixon.
The assassination plan of Andrew Topping confirms this. Testimony of Harold W. Eldridge could confirm this.(24) Investigation of the death of Secret Service agent J. Clifford Dietrich might confirm this.
Secret Service agent Robert H. Taylor was transferred. He had a rift with H.R. Haldemen, who tried to change security arrangements. Taylor threatened to arrest Haldeman for interfering with security when he wanted a "spontaneous demonstration" for the President in New Hampshire. A duplication of the Wallace shooting, already written in a book, could clear the way for Agnew.(25)
13. The goal was a U.S. gestapo.
Senator Ervin described the espionage squad inside the White House as a "gestapo mentality." J. Edgar Hoover refused any part of the gestapo, saying the secret Domestic Intelligence operations "denied our civil liberties." The Inter-Agency Group (IAG) on Domestic Intelligence and Internal Security includes members from the FBI, CIA, DIA, NSA, Counter-Intelligence agencies of the Army, Air Force, Navy and Police Departments.
Editor's note: As we go to press, Louis Tackwood has once again been picked up by Los Angeles police, beaten up, his arm broken in prison. It should be the duty of the Senate Committee and the special federal prosecutor to protect the life of this vital witness. He has documentation.and names linking the White House plumbers to California law enforcement agencies. He could also be a deciding factor in the San Quentin Six and other trials.
3. Tom Charles Huston
The "Huston documents" are a cover. Tom Charles Huston did not write these. Who did? Huston is a cut-off man, the middle man, between the operators and the setting up of the operations; the delivery boy.
There are instructions for President Nixon, supposedly Huston giving orders:
"I am attaching my recommendations on the decision the President should make with regard to these operational restraints."
"It might be helpful to add my specific recommendations and reasons in the event the President has some doubts on specific courses of action."
"I recommend the President call in Mr. Hoover for stroking sessions. The President explains the decisions he made. He thanks Hoover for his candid advice and past cooperation. He indicates he is counting on Edgar's cooperation in implementing the report. He announces his decision. Follow this up with a meeting in the Oval Office. Thank members for their report. Announce his decisions. Indicate his desire for future activities. Present each member with an autographed copy of photo of first
meeting where OLLIE took place,"
Huston, whoever he represents, had advice for the military and intelligence agencies pushing this domestic plan.
"Having seen the President in action with Mr. Hoover, I am confident he can handle the situation in such a way that we can get what we want without putting Edgar's nose out of joint."
"At the same time [that he is placating Hoover] we can capitalize on the good will the President has built up with the other principles and minimize the risk that they may feel they are being forced to take a back seat to Mr. Hoover."(26)
Tom Charles Huston came to the White House from Young Americans for Freedom.
Douglas Caddy, attorney called to the Washington jail the night five men were arrested at the Watergate, was founder of Young Americans for Freedom.
Military intelligence agents arrived from Munich, Germany to Dallas, Texas to infilter and take over Young Americans for Freedom.
Those agents were involved in the assassination of President Kennedy in 1963.
Their goal was to take over the White House by 1970.(27)
Herbert Kalmbach, attorney for President Nixon, had meetings with Douglass Caddy, as did many others from the White House espionage teams.
Through the cooperation of the Justice Dept., intelligence agencies and the armed forces, it appears that Tom Charles Huston was performing his duties, as assigned, to order Richard Nixon, taking his orders from the military and intelligence agencies. Although he is described as a "White House aide," Huston was mentioned in testimony by Richard Kleindienst as general counsel to the CIA.
Sullivan, Division V, FBI
William Sullivan worked closely with Robert Mardian, Internal Security, and the White House espionage squad.
When Sullivan left the FBI, he removed tapes kept with J. Edgar Hoover that could cause political damage to Nixon-Agnew.
Senator Weicker at least asked John Dean if he knew William Sullivan.
The killing of President Kennedy was planned by Division V of the FBI under the cloak of the Defense Intelligence Security Command.
Headquarters were in Muscle Shoals, Alabama, home of NASA.
Five fronts were utilized.
The same fronts employed for the complicated set of murders in Dallas -- of President Kennedy, Officer J.D. Tippit and Lee Harvey Oswald -- were familiar to the Watergate Affair. Many of the agents involved in 1972 election sabotage can be connected to earlier sabotage. These include:
Solidarists: CIA foundations, centered in Houston, working with the emigre community, many employed as scientists, oil operators. They were connected to the Mexican money washings, Siberian oil contracts and warfare production. Large donations to Nixon campaign, and Johnson's earlier, came from Houston and Dallas.
American Council of Christian Churches: Shortly before LBJ died, he revealed that curiosity caused him to find the real assassins of President Kennedy. They were located in the Caribbean, called Murder, Inc. A series of Church fronts funded a school for assassins in Oaxaco, Mexico, dressed as missionaries. The same church people, interested in such activities, have direct contacts to important White House aides, FBI and CIA agents. Agency money is sent to churches who pass it to persons that they never met, and will not meet. This money hires assassins.
Miami syndicate: Frank Sturgis delivered arms for Castro at one time, changed sides, and left the gambling tables he was charged with. From that time on, he attempted to "save" Cuba from Communists. Gambling was an important motive for anti-Castro hatreds. Bernard Barker, money man in the Miami area, worked for Batista's secret police. The Syndicate, hoping to return to control Cuba, hires Cuban exiles to promote disturbances.
Cuban Exile Group, Free Cuba Committee: The Cuban exile community worked closely with government agencies and the Solidarists, coordinated by Division V of the FBI. Oil interests, geologists and gambling interests utilized exile Cubans for foot soldiers to help reclaim Cuba for particular purposes. Hatred of Communism was their common motivation for team work.
The power and profit motives are played down, but financiers have always forced the White House to make military decisions, and have contributed millions to the campaigns to be assured that their desires become orders. Kennedy's refusal to
invade Cuba or kill Castro was one more proof he was not their man.
Security Division of NASA: Headed by Werner von Braun. Nazi headquarters were moved to the Caribbean following World War II. The National Security Council, patterned from German intelligence, provided the espionage framework inside the White House for our political assassinations as well as the Watergate "plumbers" and election manipulations.
Agents from Military intelligence and the armed forces were concealed inside defense projects.
The Syndicate worked with the Defense Industrial Security Command.
Robert Sheridan, appointed by George McGovern to "investigate Watergate for the Democrats," was the direct liaison to the departments involved in the Kennedy assassination. The Watergate parallels are too great to not suspect a continuous working of this operation.(28)
3. Martial Law without the Riots
"They have the marshals, I have the Army."
--Richard Nixon to John Dean
Ordering martial law, under the guise of National Emergency, is no
problem for the White House.
We are actually in a state of martial law at this time, with the Judiciary and the Executive branches facing a crisis, in which the President will not account for his actions, defined as possibly criminal.
Richard Nixon is no longer receiving advice of Melvin Laird he does not wish to receive, but will accept Pentagon orders and directions.
William Timmons, part of the White House espionage group, instead of being purged, is chief White House lobbyist.
Roy Ash, who should have been removed from the White House for at least ten good reasons, has been described as "expanding his perimeter." The U.S. will become like Greece, which Litton Industries and Ash helped create.
General Haig said he didn't give up his military career "to shuffle papers." He intends to shuffle us instead. He refuses to fire White House aides involved with Watergate "whether they are guilty or not."
There is no indication the military and intelligence agency plans are not in operation, or that Haig and others do not put ends far above the means.
The White House is controlled by the clandestine mind and operators who instigated military coup d'etats and military dictatorships elsewhere. They have determined that the majority, just because they are the majority, are not able to decide what is best for the conglomerates and financial empires.
Long before the 1972 elections, a series of government agencies were being formed that would assure control of the population.
A conflict was going to arise. Billions would be spent on continuing military hardware. Money would be withheld from programs for domestic improvements and opportunities. A civil war situation, identical to that created by ITT and the CIA in Chile, as well as elsewhere, would be forced.
We were entering a period of no-knock, surreptitious entry, mail openings, imprisonment without trials, elimination of mental hospitals, reduced minority benefits, systematic assassination of minority leaders, closed borders into Canada and Mexico, police laser weapons, data banks, and other reasons for population unrest. With that in mind, we are left with those agencies still functioning, becoming stronger every day, when they should be broken up.
If you can't accept the martial law plans for 1972, insist that the Senate and the federal prosecutors examine data existing to prove this fact, such as the Louis Tackwood charges and other evidence. Without comprehending the amount of work anticipated to keep these plans operating, there is no way to expose and demand that agencies formed be dismatled.
Only a few of the most dangerous institutions which should be dismantled include:
Office of Management Budget: Domestic funds and decisions belong in the hands of Congress. Roy Ash was accused of taking $43-million from Howard Hughes contracts by shuffling the books, then started Litton Industries empire to expand. Litton is consumed in large cost overruns, running into billions. The excuse of the Office of Management Budget was to "save money." Ash could save the taxpayer by minding his own shipyard.
The close association of Roy Ash, John Maury of the CIA and other top government officials, to the Greek military dictatorship is shocking. The White House "plumbers" and all agents involved in sabotage and conspiracy worked through and with the Office of Management Budget at one time. Fred Malek of that Office should be returned to the Pentagon, away from domestic affairs.
Office of Emergency Service: We all want warning and protection from natural disasters, such as earthquakes, floods, hurricanes. That cover story and excuse is the diabolical 1984ish James McCord secret warning system being pushed today.
This involves a two-way radio into every home.(29)
Ronald Reagan, hoping to be President, is pushing hard in California for the Office of Emergency Service.
The Roseville, Calif. tests on military equipment exploding was to further justify that Office. It was a provocateur-type operation to create the need for legal repression.
Any natural disaster or happening would come and go. But the Office of Emergency Service will remain.
Inter-Divisional Information Unit (IDIU): This is a cover for domestic intelligence gathering.(30)
While the CIA is not supposed to be operating inside the U.S., it exists everywhere with different covers.
There are military provisions to anticipate all future uprisings.
Drug and Law Enforcement (DALE): This is a dangerous new development which conceals espionage operations and allows for terror in the community.
Every manifestation of Nazi Germany has been utilized inside the U.S. with the exception of entering, breaking homes apart, killing, and leaving. DALE is that missing link.
There are no promises that raids will cease. There is every reason to believe they will continue and make more "errors." Even when the arrested have drugs on the premises the methods used and the consequences of the discovery do not justify the way DALE was formed.
Imported narcotics, on CIA planes and otherwise, serve three purposes important to the federal government.
First, it is good business, exceeding war profits. The drug dealers work with the intelligence and military in many ways. Profits gained from drug traffic help support racist projects, including political conspiracies and assassinations.
Second, provocateurs and police agents purposely push narcotics into the ghettos to control the minorities. According to Louis Tackwood, the Los Angeles Police Dept. supplied drugs, as do other police agencies.
Third, the necessary violence and crime in the streets caused by supporting drug habits requires more police, local helicopters, surveillance, arrests without warrants, framing selected patsies by planting evidence on the premises, and makes the law enforcement agent protector of our life and property.
Planted marijuana in the binoculars of John Lennon is the excuse to deport him from the U.S. In spite of the cultural advancements he and Yoke Ono have made, their outspoken criticism of warfare, genocide and political prisoners make them eligible for an "enemy list." Planted narcotics becomes the excuse to deny a family the right to find their child.
DALE is a political tool of the administration.(31)
UCLA institute to Study the Causes of Violent Behavior: This Institute
is Ronald Reagan's answer to "solving violence by 1975." Senator Ervin and
others requested this study be put off because of Watergate and federal
influence into domestic privacy.
Funded by CIA fronts, concealed grants and government money, the UCLA Institute hides behind the California Council on Criminal Justice.
Suicides, family beatings, minority problems can easily be solved in direct proportion to the amount of money located in space and defense budgets being transferred to domestic needs.
There is a concerted interest in federal, CIA studies to justify brain experimentation, prisoner modification and minority experimentation on the basis that social unrest is not caused by economic deprivations. Every effort to pass this propaganda as fact should be challenged.
Twenty-five per cent of the Gestapo doing painful and subhuman experiments in Nazi Germany were from the leading universities. NASA scientist Dr. Ross Adey, working at UCLA, justified brain altering, by claiming that "the brain feels no pain."(32)
ENSKIDS: The National Security Council and the National Security Act of 1947 made every provision in their charters for sabotage and infiltration necessary inside the U.S. as well as in other countries.(33)
ENSKIDS is one of the provisions for the CIA to work inside the U. S. Every person can be "suspected" of having foreign contacts, thus justifying their surveillance. This was the excuse for following Mary Jo Kopechne, who later was found dead inside the car of Senator Ted Kennedy.
Atascadero, Calif., Lister Unit, Vacaville, Calif.: California prisons have been experimenting with dangerous, painful drugs for a long time. Empty units wait at the Lister Center in Vacaville, hoping the public will lose interest in prisoners. Public opposition stalled the process temporarily until the UCLA center appeared.
Federal funds, through LEAA, provide methods of social control. These include various drugs and techniques not allowed by the Nuremberg Code or AMA guidelines.
--Proloxin was used on 1,093 inmates in Vacaville in 1971.
--Anecetin has been used on at least 90 unwilling patients in California, and probably many more.
--Electro-convulsive shocks are administered as punishment.
--Castrations are common. L.A. Superior Court Judge Lawrence Turrentine ordered 60 castrations. L.A. Superior Court Judge Frank Collier ordered 41 castrations. Genitals are wired, inside California prisons, as experimentation on prisoners.
--Sterilizations, 19,042 of them, were ordered by California judges for "preventive procreation."
This is a national problem, but I have done research into the California prisons as related to California conspiracy and espionage operations.(34)
U.S. Medical Center for Federal Prisoners in Springfleld, Miss., Adirondak Treatment Center, New York State, Behavior Research Center in Butner, North Carolina: Clockwork Orange is alive and well in the United States.
Anticipated social unrest will be challenged with removal of prisoners from their home states, and a loss of contact with those persons.
Advanced behavior modification, imprisonment without committing a crime, and transporting prisoners across state lines are escalations of Auschwitz, USA.
New Proposed Cabinet in California to combine the Military, Prisons, Law Enforcement into One Group: Ronald Reagan has compared President Thieu in Vietnam to George Washington. Following all the methods used by Thieu and the Phoenix program in Asia to silence over 40,000 political prisoners in preparation for an election, Presidential aspirant Reagan is clearing the way at home.
The UCLA Institute to Study the Causes of Violent Behavior, the Office of Emergency Service, the new proposal to establish a single manpower agency for employment and the new proposed cabinet are all Ronald Reagan's pet projects which he is pushing to implement as soon as possible.
If there was ever a time to question and fear one public servant, it is now and the man is Reagan. Almost each month a diabolic suggestion has appeared as a real nightmarish possibility.
A "special task force" has assembled to combine controls over the citizens under the guise of a "study." A new California cabinet is proposed. This would include the Military, Highway Patrol, Office of Emergency Service, California Criminal Justice (Federal funds), Crime Technologicai Research Foundation, Dept. of Corrections, and the Youth Authority.(35)
B. The Enemy List
The White House intelligence operation, acting apart from their separate agencies, was coordinated to handle domestic emergencies.
These domestic dangers turned out to be political enemies of the administration or the corporate structure as it wants to exist.
Procedures of operation, surreptitious entry, wiretapping, opening mail, etc., were listed and approved, although clearly illegal.
Tax money was paid to spy against ourselves.
Where did this counter-intelligence army learn who to attack? From the White House enemy list, of course.
What military objective was their target? You don't set up unconventional warfare operating procedures without having goals in mind.
Radicals, anti-war protestors, minority leaders and prisoners were already under attack by existing military and federal agencies.
They were infiltrated, saturated with provocateurs, bugged, busted, imprisoned. Others were murdered, poisoned and crippled.(Details of Murderville, U.S.A. will appear in my next article for The Realist, "Why was J. Edgar Hoover Murdered?")
The President himself admitted having approved an illegal operation of repression against campus and other radical groups.
All that remained was to get the list, and get the army moving.
"By 1970 it was public knowledge the FBI alone had added 1,200 agents for campus work, that federal funds for local police surveillance were increased by 300%, and that the Justice Dept. was turning its Internal Security Division into a national squad devoted to massive surveillance and harassment."(36)
The White House "plumbers" and the coordinated agencies that worked with them were formed to damage, secretly, the political enemies. Standard government departments, made up of Republicans and Democrats, would have learned of these operations.
H.R. Haldeman gave the approval for $400,000 to "defeat" George Wallace. Supposedly it went to a Democratic candidate for Governor, but Haldeman didn't know his name. Couldn't it also go to part of an assassination team? He only allocated the cash from a special, secret White House safe but didn't inquire the use when it was handed over? Hardly possible! Only an intelligence operation, working on a need-to-know basis, behaves in such a manner.
There were ways to attack the political enemies. In some manner, from various choices, they would be "screwed" after the elections.
Investigating tax returns, withholding of federal grants and contracts, litigations and prosecutions were suggested. That is where the army comes in. They have to create those conspiracies that will "frame," "screw," "program" and "create scandals."
Michael Dellums, son of black Representative Ron Dellums, was arrested recently. Were any of his companions provocateurs? Were they persuaded into actions, for money or otherwise, to cause this arrest? That is not far-fetched, after studying lists of those in prisons today because of such planted conspiracies.
The Trojan boys -- USC fraternity gang that ended up in the White House, were stuffing ballot boxes, creating disturbances and testing their political muscles as young adults.
Sally Harmony testified about Robin Cranston early in the Watergate hearings. His name was on the Gemstone papers. Robin, the son of anti-war Senator Alan Cranston, recently had legal troubles with a female who claimed he put LSD in her drink. Was she one of Liddy's choice women who would be utilized later in Miami?
Mr. and Mrs. A. Picker were to be "programmed."
The Pickers were large contributors to the political campaign
of Senator Muskie.
What constitutes programming?
Mrs. Dorothy Hunt, at the time of her death on the sabotaged flight to Chicago on December 8, 1972, had the name of two neurosurgeons with her. An accomplished CIA agent on her own, would these persons perform for the accused a service that
would save paying blackmail money the rest of their lives?
The present Attorney General Eliot Richardson seems to be knowledgable about mind control, behavior modification and programming.
Following the Detroit riots of 1967, a new method of handling minorities started to be explored seriously as an alternative to social progress. Frank Ervin, Vernon Mark and William Sweet, all from Massachusetts, received aid from Eliot Richardson to begin studies and experimentation on behavior modification of minorities. It was Richardson who managed to get their project financed through Congressional funds. Their project is the use of preventive psychosurgery on minority children in Massachusetts.(37)
C. The Warfare State
President Richard Nixon:
The image of J. Walter Thompson, cold war advertising agency, has been replaced without a cover story.(38)
The Pentagon has taken over the Oval Office. It was always there, but concealed in a more subtle way.
Cold war provisions for the National Security Council, housed inside the White House, to direct the designated official, are followed through.
Domestic spy operations, illegal procedures, denial of Constitutional protections, were also ordered.
Armed guards seal all files and documents.
Tape recordings of Presidential conversations can be used to blackmail the President if he forgets his lines or does not perform appropriately to orders.
Intelligence agents hire the staff.
Vice-President Spiro Agnew:
Plans to assassinate Richard Nixon indicate a desperation of the extreme right wing to place Agnew in the White House as soon as possible.
Watergate defendants and close working associates of the espionage teams were Agnew-Ashbrook supporters. YAF, Tom Charles Huston's organization, supported Agnew in 1972.
There was a determination to "get Nixon" by the conservatives rather than by Democrats or radicals.
Agnew's money and close links to the Greek military junta have not been mentioned with regard to 1972 election financing. Tapes exist to prove millions of dollars, through Tom Pappas, Esso Oil, placed Agnew on the Republican ticket.
Maj. Gen. John Dunn, Agnew's deputy chief of staff, indicates a growing fear of a militarized White House. Dunn, a colonel 3 years ago, became a two-star general this March. The Greek military junta came into existence during a 24-hour coup d'etat because the generals and older conservatives had been systematically replaced prior to the takeover.(39)
Chief Justice Warren Burger:
A new Constitution was written for use after the 1972 elections.
It is a blueprint for a Nazi state.
Warren Burger insisted the new Constitution eliminate trial by jury.
Burger claimed "the trial by jury slows the wheels of justice." (40)
The Supreme Court recently turned down, by a vote of 7-0, the request to examine documentary evidence that Sirhan Sirhan did not kill Senator Robert Kennedy. The circumstances that allowed Nixon to become President were so unusual and horrendous. If the matters of political assassination are still silenced, after years of research and proof of a conspiracy existed, there is no chance that illegal wiretapping or bugging will cause the President to move very far away from the source of his power.
General Alexander Haig, White House Chief of Staff:
General Haig, like General Dunn, passed over 243 generals for his appointment. Rockefeller, residing in New York, directs his men -- Henry Kissinger, John Mitchell, Spiro Agnew. Haig is the protege of Kissinger and maintains control of the White House as the other men move out and shift positions caused by Watergate scandals.(41)
Haig is a defendant in a suit by Morton Halperin for illegal wiretaps on his home and office. There is no chance, with the Pentagon ruling the courts, that Kissinger or Haig will even get a reprimand for such actions. "National security" protects espionage agents against us. If their lies are revealed, as in the Pentagon Papers, the punishment is pushed upon those who see and tell. There is more national security in smoking these people out.
Maj. Gen, John C. Bennett, White House Staff, Maj. George Joulwan:
Bennett and Joulwan are aides, still on active duty at the present time. They are assisting General Haig in the White House.(42)
William J. Baroody, Pentagon, Fred Buzhardt, Counsel for the President:
Buzhardt's name came up at the time of the Pentagon Papers trial. Evidence was withheld to the detriment of the defendants. March, 1971, Buzhardt testified that electronic surveillance of the army on citizens did not directly interfere with civil rights.(43)
Clarence Kelley, new Director of the FBI:
Famous for Computerized police departments. Blacks, anti-war protestors, radicals harassed in Kansas. Police killings of blacks, use of helicopters, data banks. LEAA funds, repressions financed following violence instigated by federal provocateurs. Heavily linked to Federal police systems. Passed Senate approval 96-0, indicating total ignorance of what Watergate espionage was really about. This appointment could have been held up, like L. Patrick Gray's, until more information was available.
William Colby, new Director of the CIA:
The CIA has been involved in domestic sabotage. Colby, as head of the dreaded Phoenix program in Vietnam, became synomyous with population displacement, tortures, imprisonment of political voices against Thieu, and dropping Viet Cong from airplanes. The arrogance of this nomination at this time by Richard Nixon will be equalled by the Senate with no respect for human lives or liberty.
James Schlesinger, Secretary of Defense:
"Knowledge is a form of power and most institutions exhibit an understandable reluctance to dissipate this power in the absence of compensating advantages."
"The deliberate introduction of distortion and fuzziness to improve the competitive position of one's own agency or division is an unavoidable and dominant feature of the bureaucratic landscape."
"Politics, so far as mobilizing support is concerned, represents the art of calculated cheating, or more precisely how to cheat without being really caught."
--Systems Analysis and the Political Process
James Schlesinger, Rand Corp., June 1967
Prisoners of America
Provisions for martial law and the institutions to implement a military dictatorship inside the U.S. affect all facets of our society. No persons suffer more than political prisoners, victims of the police state.
The prison system reflects the quality and justice of its society outside. Tiger cages in Vietnam, islands of torture in Greece, assassination police squads and torture in Brazil, extermination camps in Germany, have been powerful and necessary methods of silencing political opponents. Knowing such prisons exist keeps the moderate and frightened from voicing their objections to oppression.
The same Justice Dept., FBI, counter-intelligence agencies working inside the White House that condoned election sabotage and "horror stories" come down upon radicals inside the prisons as well as on the streets.
Raymond Procunier, director of State Department of Corrections in California, said, "If we've got a group out preaching revolution, and we think that it's dangerous, we lock them up."(44) Many U.S. prisoners have been murdered, framed and confined in isolation solely for their political beliefs and not for actual crimes committed. When the California authorities can't find a crime, provocateurs create conspiracies and assure their selected targets are blamed.
Throughout the 1960's and '70s the consciousness of prisoners about the political nature of their situations has grown along with the political movements on the outside.
The more they call attention to their conditions, the more inhumane is their treatment.
Prison demonstrations or actions to voice existing conditions cause some men to be segregated for life.
If the White House defined moderates such as Hubert Humphrey or Edmund Muskie as "enemies" to be defeated by any means necessary, what chance do radical prisoners have for a new definition or chance to live?
The Adjustment Center, Maximum Security, is for political prisoners inside the United States.
Germans claimed to be ignorant of Dachau and Aushwitz.
There are enough books and data available about U.S. prisons to set innocent men free and to force a change of conditions.(45)
The Watergate espionage squad is directly linked to California agencies and prisons.
Elmer Davis, a man currently held in the Calif. State Prison at Folsom, was charged with the Ellsberg robbery of Dr. Lewis Fielding's office. Davis was in prison at the time he was charged and could not have been in Beverly Hills at the time. A suit has been filed by Davis in the U.S. District Court against Richard Nixon, John Ehrlichman, Egil Krogh, G. Gordon Liddy, E. Howard Hunt and California law enforcement officials, including Beverly Hills Law Enforcement officers.(46)
The Elmer Davis case is only one from a long list of arrests that will indicate the interrelationship of the CIA, Los Angeles Law Enforcement, California Dept. of Corrections and other officers.
Cuban terrorists carried out armed arson attacks in Los Angeles, 1970, against the Haymarket, a radical meeting place and bookstore; the offices of the Socialist Workers Party; and Ashgrove, a coffee house that made its facilities available to radical causes.
Mario Pelaez, Reynaldo Castro and Reynaldo Gonzalez, all arrested, were working for the CIA. Edward Gritz and Sergeant Charles Loust of the LAPD Criminal Conspiracy Division confirmed the CIA connections. The Cubans had been hired in May 1970 to "fight Communism and get Cuba back." The men worked with Alpha 66, the armed guerrilla warfare group that Frank Sturgis, Bernard Barker, Eugenio Martinez and other Watergate operatives were associated with.
Louis Tackwood, working with the Los Angeles Police Dept., revealed another CIA, LAPD, FBI conspiracy plot which took place at San Quentin. This was the George Jackson murder and framing of radical prisoners for other deaths that occurred that day.
The White House espionage group was responsible for killing 28 Black Panthers and other minority leaders. They also were determined to exterminate leaders inside the prison.
Eldrige Cleaver, writer and Panther, escaped going to prison and went to Algeria. Alcohol, Tobacco and Firearms agents were making a deal with Sonny Barger, Hell's Angels leader, to "bring Cleaver home dead in a box." Larry Shears, the agent who exposed this arrangement, also revealed the plans of ATF to kill Cesar Chavez.(47) This was at a time when John Caulfield and G. Gordon Liddy were working for the Treasury Dept. ATF.
Tackwood stated in his 1971 press conference that the LAPD Criminal Conspiracy Section, with links to the CIA and FBI, had foreknowledge of the Judge Haley murder, Marin Courthouse shootout and the San Ouentin killing of George Jackson.
In line with murdering political leaders, writers and Black Panthers, George Jackson had been marked for death several years in advance of the shootout. Many prisoners had been offered parole if they would kill or frame him. Refusal to comply brought more charges of assaults and punishments.
Ronald Reagan, Governor of California, had information four months in advance on his desk which could have prevented the San Quentin killings. But, like other staged riots and violence, this was meant to take place. The suppressed report, regarding possible disturbance and unrest inside the prison, was referred to in the October 23, 1971 edition of the San Francisco Chronicle.
As an agent provocateur for the LAPD, Tackwood was sent to prison disguised as an inmate to create disturbances or to frame a particular prisoner. As part of his LAPD employment, he testified at the trial of Joseph Lee Jenkins, which sent an innocent man to San Quentin for life.
Jenkins, innocent, is imprisoned for political purposes. Sergeant Woods, Homicide Division, LAPD, stated he would charge Clemmie E. Henderson unless he cooperated and testified against Joseph Lee Jenkins.
The threat was made in Antelope Valley Police Dept., Lancaster, California.
Henderson was given a set of facts to testify to. He was taken
to the scene of the crime, shown photographs of the area, and other people.
Two other witnesses, Larry and Arnold Kendrick, were coerced.
Henderson did not see Jenkins kill Darlene Smelcer. He was instructed starting August 13, 1969 to give false testimony.
Arnold Kendrick and Clemmie Henderson killed Miss Smelcer, and Jenkins was not involved in the crime.
Jenkins was the only person among a group who had an arrest record, so the police found him the "easiest person to convince of the crime."
(The above information is from a deposition of Clemmie E. Henderson, State of Calif., County of Marin, recorded at San Quentin State Prison on Sunday, October 15, 1972, at the request of Clemmie E. Henderson, B-34006 and Joseph Lee Jenkins, B-33668. is there an attorney who will come forward and represent Joseph Lee Jenkins? He is innocent, and has already served four years of his life in San Quentin for a crime he never commited.)
Another provocateur, Lee Smith, testified before a House Committee that he was "recruited to foment prison unrest" at the California Men's Colony in 1971. He was to help plan and carry out a strike, and also worked with other prisoners to assault two California prison guards.
Agent provcateurs are hired to blame "Marxist revolutionary forces" for prison unrest. The.conditions of prison then became more secretive and more controlled.(48)
Stephen Bingham was the agent provocateur of the San Quentin shootout. Boyd Douglas was hired to frame the Berrigans. Whittaker Chambers was utilized to imprison Alger Hiss.
Bingham was employed for the murder of George Jackson and the subsequent imprisonment of six radicals: Fleeta Drumgo, Willie Tate, Hugo Pinell, Johnny Larry Spain and Louis Talamantex. Known as the San Quentin Six, they will be on trial soon, two years after their arrests.
A common Nazi method of exterminating was utilized -- "killed while escaping." George Jackson was shot in the head. There are discrepancies regarding the autopsy and location of the wounds.
Bingham was not a "Communist." Tackwood told me he was sent from British Intelligence, went to San Quentin, provided the excuse for the George Jackson killing. He provided a gun which was supposedly in Jackson's "wig."
Charges against the San Quentin Six are for the murder of two other prisoners and three guards.
Asst. Attorney General Robert Mardian, associated with the Watergate arrests and the illegal secret White House intelligence squad, created the Grand Jury system to suit Administration purposes -- to commit radicals, anti-war protestors and political prisoners.
The Grand Jury that indicted the San Quentin Six two years ago broke apart as a result of their stormy sessions. One grand juror, in an unprecendented move, resigned in protest over the indictments. He spoke of the "inequalities and injustices of the secret indicting process." Two other grand jurors walked out on the meeting, declaring, "What this Grand Jury does is not justice but vengenace"(49)
Members of the Grand Jury, attorneys, outside authorities were not allowed inside San Quentin for a length of time, denied access to investigate the incident.
No impartial investigation was conducted after Jackson and five others were slain.
The espionage cover story for the murders was that "throats were cut."
Nelson Rockefeller, Governor of New York, allowed the murder of 43 persons inside Attica prison, that could also have been avoided. The immediate cover story after riots started was that "guards' throats were cut." Scare stories frighten the outside population against prisoners, and assures that political prisoners will remain locked up. But throats were not cut in New York.
Who sent out that phony story? Why?
If it was concluded that throats were not cut in New York, after the prison was examined carefully, what assurance is there that throats were cut in California? Nobody was allowed to enter and examine the evidence.(50)
Judge Haley's body was exhumed to determine information regarding the Ruchell Magee trial in Marin County that involved the LAPD, CCS, Evelle Younger and the Dept. of Corrections.
Before the trial for the San Quentin Six begins, their attorneys should demand the bodies be exhumed to see if that cover story holds.
Taped conversations of Stephen Bingham, taken following the killings, in Canada, also exist. They should be produced by the LAPD.
Immediately after the San Quentin killing of George Jackson, the guards and inmates, 22 men in prison sent out a letter pleading for someone to solve the conspiracy that caused those bloody events.
Ten years research into the murders of President John Kennedy, Senator Robert Kennedy, Malcolm X, Martin Luther King, and then the Watergate Affair, led me to the San Quentin killings.
Six men are anxious to prove their innocence.
They are being denied lawyers of their choice.
The trial will be a railroad if we allow this to happen.
America must wake up and save the living as well as investigate and mourn the dead.
The Watergate Affair is not only about election sabotage.
Watergate is about a White House President, Department of Justice, FBI, CIA, intelligence agencies that conduct para-military operations against all citizens alike. Indifference to conspiracy trials, created by agencies for silencing minorities, assures that the real criminals will remain in power.
The team that sabotages the Constitution and the Bill of Rights, has locked innocent human beings into isolated traps 23 1/2 hours each day for the past two years.
Two days before George Jackson's trial, as one-third of the famous Soledad Brothers, Jackson was killed. His two companions were acquitted. Prison violence, imported provocateurs, are escalating scenes in San Quentin now in anticipation of this long and crucial trial.
The defendants live with threats of death every day. Phony messages of "escape plans to Algeria and Cuba" are circulating. It is treacherous business to look for life and justice in the U.S. if you are marked by the federal government to cease existing.
California law enforcement agencies and planned conspirators should be on trial.
Free the San Quentin Six and investigate Watergate West.
A "caper" is a "horror story."
John Mitchell, former Attorney General, attempted to separate the Watergate Hotel entry and arrests from the White House plumbers "horror stories."
The Watergate Affair can't be taken apart as a series of isolated acts.
The entry into the Democratic Headquarters, forging documents, complicated money transactions, kidnapping, blackmailing, hiring provocateurs, planting phony polls, were part of an espionage establishment that has existed for a long time. They finally got caught.
Research into political violence and political assassinations would have clipped their wings much earlier.
Refusal to expose their methods at this time or allowing specific agents to still control with power over government agencies, assures their continued success.
Election reforms are a start but a simplistic approach to needed purges.
"McCarthyism" was firing and frightening innocent citizens by calling them "Communists." Guilt by association was the charge.
The Watergate purge is different, involving actual criminals.
Murders, conspiracies, sabotage and treason should be the charges this time, or would be if the investigators were not part of the conspiracies.
1. Liberal press intent on silencing conspiracies: Realist, Oct, 1972, Jerry
Policoff, "How All the News About Political Conspiracies in the United States Has Not Been Fit to Print in The New York Times."
2. Provocateurs: "An agent provocateur is a police agent who is introduced into any political organization with instructions to foment discontent ... or to fake a case in order to give his employers the right to act against the organization in question." --Louis Tackwood, The Glass House Tapes
Example: The White House was assembling a political attack team for 1972. They needed a cover, so called them "plumbers" to find leaks on SALT talks from the National Security Council. All their jobs were political assignments, including the Ellsberg robbery, kidnapping Dita Beard, forging State Dept. papers to blame JFK for the murder of Diem, collecting data to smear Ted Kennedy following the Chappaquiddick death of Mary Jo Kopechne, securing cover stories for Arthur Bremer, arrested for shooting George Wallace. William Becher, from the National Security Council, planted the leaks. Becher was then promoted to deputy Asst. Secretary for Public Affairs in the Defense Dept. Acting as a provocateur, he created the excuse for operations that would later come down upon innocent citizens.
3. Reichstag Fires in the U.S.: The Reichstag was the German government building burned by Hitler's general as an excuse to imprison radicals and protestors. Domestic violence caused by Justice Dept. conspiracies: Murder of Martin Luther King. Systematic killing of 28 Black Panthers. Kent State, murder of 4 students. Jackson State, murder of 2 students. Urban guerrilla warfare; police and FBI ammunition; bombs supplied. Attica, 3 prisoners killed in riots, could've been avoided, San Quentin, murder of George Jackson, 2 guards, 3 prisoners. Chicago 1968 convention; police, armed forces causing violence. Planned killings of 1972, violence for Republican convention, but arrests at Watergate cancelled the plans.
4. Acts of treason: Webster's New Collegiate Dictionary defines treason as (l) The betrayal of a trust, and (2) The offense of attempting by overt acts to overthrow the government of the state to which the offender owes allegiance or to kill or personally injure the sovereign or his family. Existing evidence can prove that acts of violence and even the planned killingof the President were conspired for the fall of 1972. The Watergate Affair is about treason, not wiretpping and burglary.
5. Lawyers involved in the Watergate: Attorney General John Mitchell; Attorney General Richard Kleindeinst; Asst. Attorney General Henry Peterson; Acting Director of the FBI L. Patrick Gray; Asst. Attorney General Robert Mardian; William Sullivan, Director of Division V, FBI; California Attorney General Evelle Younger; William Bittman; Charles Colson; John Dean; Paul O'Brien; Gordon Strachan; Egil Krogh; Donald Segretti; Fred LaRue; John Ehrlichman; Herb Kalmbach; Kenneth Parkinson; Tom Huston; Richard Moore; G. Gordon Liddy; Herbert Porter; Judge C. Richey; Richard Nixon.
Lawyers not involved: Judge J. Sirica; Judge Morell E. Sharp, who had the good judgment to refuse involvement with the domestic intelligence squad.
6. Methods by which covert acts are carried out -- a few examples: Secret Fundings so sources are kept concealed. Provocateurs to conceal motives behind the operations. "Public Relations" office to hide department planning conspiracies. Dummy fronts, non-existing business or firms. Cover stories, inaccurate descriptions of agents or operations. Cut-offs, hiring a middle man so that connecting agents not seen together, or can't be recognized as part of a conspiracy.
Need-to-know, hiring people but not divulging the larger plans; they "didn't know" what the money was used for, or about the operation. Evidence is manipulated, destroyed, forged, "missing," locked up, delayed (reconstructed to fit into the cover story), altered, planted against the innocent, withheld in National Archives. Disguises -- wigs, speech impediments. False I.D. -- passports, social security, birth ceritificates, union cards, aliases. Code names, to lose identification, conceal projects. Job placements, salaries given but not working at that premise, promotions for services, transfers.
Arson, bombing, to conceal evidence, lose motives and confuse. (I learned of a CIA agent, working with McCord and others from CIA, who burned two churches in Washington. The blame was placed on hippies and radicals, "anti-Christ" youth). Transportation provided, private planes, getaway planes, double license plates to switch states, double car ownerships and keys that fit several cars. Illegal wiretaps, electronic surveillance, robbery, forging. Secret meeting places, Safe Houses, places to stay, change clothes, meet in open not-so-bugged parks, under bridges, hotel lobbies, airports, inside taxicabs. Oral instructions; no written memos, evidence removed, final plans made with a nod or sign of the hand.
7. Removal of civil liberties: J. Edgar Hoover objected to the Domestic Intelligence plans, saying that "our civil liberties would be denied." The plan was never rescinded:
(1) July 13, 1970, President Nixon approved the plan. Electronic surveillance, "surreptitious entry," breaking and entering, opening mail, and operations still not revealed.
(2) July 28, 1970, the intelligence plan was "rescinded" after strong objections of FBI Director J. Edgar Hoover.
(3) Dec. 1970 and late Jan. 1971, Judge Morell E. Sharp worked inside the White House, going over the plans, because he was invited to head this "rescinded" squad. He refused because of the secrecy. Six months after it was rescinded, interviews were being held to keep it going into the future.
(4) July 15, 1970, Tom Charles Huston, "author" of the intelligence plan, said that "No one at the White House gave formal orders to rescind the plan."
(5) June 10, 1973, Washington Post revealed at least 22 covert operations conducted by this domestic intelligence squad.
8. Ways to cover clandestine operations if detected or arrested: Jeb Magruder told John Mitchell he was going to tell the truth in court instead of perjury the second time around. According to Magruder, Mitchell told him that was fine, but that he was "going to have to take the other route." Keeping secrets is as important to spy operations as ammunition is to a weapon. They are not given away. Methods of concealment are:
Denial -- Deny all charges. When the denials are proven to be lies, they become
Can't recall -- Agents are working as a team. Some may or may not talk. Answer to a question with a "yes" or "no" might be contradicted later. "I can't recall" covers the territory. Recall can return at any moment.
Suicides -- Agents are provided with literal suicide medications. Psychological suicide is to die, as a person, to lose traces with the other agents. You are dead -- from them and future contacts.
Disovowal -- Gordon Strachan delivered money to Fred LaRue. LaRue, wearing gloves to receive it, reminded Strachan he didn't know him.
Perjury -- Perjury isn't perjury; it is rationalized as patriotism. Lies are not considered lies; they are necessities to save America.
"Essentially gossip, nothing evidenciary" -- Richard Moore, Nixon's attorney, never told him about information in the Washington Post or from other sources regarding CREEP, or possible involvement of White House staff in the Watergate Affair. His excuse was that it was "essentially gossip, nothing evidenciary." The gossip could be checked out with the Justice Dept. or intelligence agencies. So long as he didn't bother, it remained "gossip."
Nothing illegal -- When Tony Ulasewicz was asked by Senator Weicker if any of his jobs for the White House were "illegal," he answered "no." Howard Hunt was asked the same question by the Grand Jury in Washington on May 2, 1973. When asked if he was "aware or did participate in what might commonly be referred to as illegal activities," Hunt answered, "I have no recollection of any, sir."
Question: "What about clandestine activities?"
Hunt: "Yes, sir."
Question: "What about that?"
Hunt: "I am not quibbling, but there's a difference between something that's illegal and something that's clandestine. An entry into something like Dr. Fielding's office would simply be called an entry operation conducted under the auspices of competent authority."
9. Allende allegations, Dec. 1972. (United Nations: William Broe, chief of CIA clandestine services in the Western Hemisphere, Proposed to ITT officials a plan to accelerate economic chaos in Chile.
Broe has now become the CIA Inspector General and recentlv combed its records for Watergate related documents. Broe has supervised a sweep of CIA records to determine whether they contain any further evidence suggesting CIA links with the Watergate scandal.
U.S. minorities and the unrepresented majority will have to take the same complaints to the UN some day. Our economic chaos at the present time is identical to CIA "planned economic chaos." (AP, San Jose Mercury, 6-22-73)
Prime Minister Michael Manley of Jamaica demanded that U.S. Ambassador Vincent de Roulet be recalled. He had suggested to Congress they work out a pre-election deal in 1972. Manley was promised the U.S. would not interfere in the Elections if he agreed not to make nationalization of the American owned bauxite industry a campaign issue. (AP, 7-23-73)
10. Domestic programs to be cut: Fred Malek, Office of Management Budget, called "Hatchet man," cuts off jobs on a moment's notice. Caspar Weinberger, Health, Education & Welfare, known as the "Ax" or "Cap the knife," reduces domestic needs.
11. Some reasons for secret donations: Coporate political donations are illegal. Favors in litigations before the Justice Dept. Delay in smog, pollution controls that are costly to factories. Keep minimum wages down. Raise the price of milk. Wheat contracts with the Soviet Union. $6,000,000,000 gas deal with Soviet Union. Navy bases on Greek Islands, oil transparts and bases.
12. Henry Buchanan account: Patrick Buchanan, White House aide, was a close personal friend of Spencer Oliver. Oliver's phone was tapped into the Howard Johnson Motel. Could this telephone be used for the Miami provocateurs? Henry Buchanan, who kept the very special secret account in Bethesda, gave some of this money to Ken Reitz. Reitz was a college director in charge of "hiring provocateurs" for demonstrations. (Washington Post, 6-29-72)
13. Donald Nixon, "loan from Marriott" after Watergate arrests: Herb Kalmbach needed money to keep Howard Hunt and others quiet. The CIA couldn't get involved at this late date when they were trying to work their way out. There were enough of their consecutive $100 bills used already. Kalmbach went to New York for money. There was a suggestion to ask "Mr. Mitchell or Maurice Stans." Mitchell was staying at the Marriott apartment. Stans had a very close relationship with Tom Pappas, the Greek military junta, and Marriott. Stans praised the Greek dictatorship and conveyed Nixon's "warm love" to it. (Evans & Novak, 9-21-71; Washington Post 5-11-73)

16. Federal Reserve can't find serial number: Washington Post, AP, 4-26-73
17. Eight persons killed with regard to funding:
(1) Mrs. Dorothy Hunt -- Carrying $40,000 cash, not $10,000, from Bernard Barker's account. Also with $2,000,000 in securities, bonds, money orders. Killed on Flight 553, United Airlines, Dec. 8, 1972. Mrs. Hunt had said her "husband knows enough to impeach Nixon."
(2) Rep. W Mills
(3) Col. J. Webster -- Campaign manager for Mills
(4) James Glover -- Second in command of W. Mills
$25,000 in mysterious funds went through Mills' account. He claimed he didn't know where it was from. Two men who would know are dead. Maryland money is important because of the Wallace shooting in Maryland. There are a lot of people who would be paid off or silenced to cooperate with the plans.
(5) Mr. Taub -- Allegedly working for Herb Kalmbach. Died in Switzerland. He was supposed to have $2,000,000 on him, the same amount Dorothy Hunt had when she was killed.
(6) Dennis Salvatore Cossini -- Contact man from CIA with Arthur Bremer. Could have provided the money, like Mrs. Hunt, be the cut-off.
(7) Mrs. A. Topping -- Wife of Andrew Topping, man hired to kill Nixon, $1,000 was paid to a Secret Service agent. This could be traced. Did any of the money come from Watergate money? Mrs. Topping was murdered because of something she knew. She was part of her husband's team. Although her death was listed as "suicide," like Rep. W. Mills, Topping said it was murder.
(8) Lou Russell -- Carl Oglesby in the Boston Phoenix (July 31, 1973) refers to "the recent death of Lou Russell, an old-hand security cop employed by McCord Associates on the Republican convention security contract. He brought about a dozen checks in different amounts from McCord to Fensterwald's Committee to Investigate Assassinations during a period in which McCord and Fensterwald are not supposed to have known each other."
18. "Looking for evidence": (Washington Post, 6-21-73) Howard Hunt testified before the Grand Jury that Charles Colson called from the White House and told him to "go to Bremer's apartment and see if there is left or radical reading material around." The night before this testimony, June 11, 1973, Hunt was hurt, beat up in his cell.
Hunt's attorney, Bittman, asked for permission to review the record of the Wallace story and amend it later, it necessary, because of the possibility of mistakes after the attack. Will he be forced to change testimony to protect the White House and Colson's connections to the Wallace shooting?
Herb Kalmbach was pouring money into the defeat of Wallace.
19. Assassination plans for Nixon: "After the martial law they planned to get Nixon." -- Louis Tackwood, Glass House Tapes, Avon Press.
20. Andrew Topping: Topping told Detective Peter Book that "rightist forces beyond his control caused his wife to be killed." (Washington Post, San Jose Mercury, 8-12-72)

24. Washington Post, October 11, 1972
25. Working for Agnew "the man": Harold W. Eldridge helped write the letter in Florida that smeared Senator Muskie. The purpose was to keep Muskie from winning in 1972, otherwise the "man" would not be able to run again in 1976. Nixon had already been President. The "man" who wanted the chance must have been Agnew. If Muskie lost, Nixon would get the nomination in August and win the election in November. If Nixon were killed, "the man" wouldn't have to wait until 1976.
