Edward Lansdale


Recommended Posts

I'm not saying Lansdale was innocent, just the opposite, but he was successful in fooling a lot of people by having Bohannen and Valeriano carry out the the actual murders. I have it direct from Bohannen's widow during a long conversation at her home in Manila that Lansdale (for instance), thought up taping two ice picks together to stab victims in the neck and make it look like a vampire did it; Bohannen then had a lot of them made and turned them over to Valeriano, whose death squads used them for mass murder. This enabled Lansdale to play a role in public where he mouthed endless evangelical opinions, which deceived a lot of people.

Mr. Seagrave - I read your post wrong this morning, and have amended mine. Please accept my apology. I have a lot of regard for Gold Warriors.

David ~ Thanks. I appreciate that very much. It always puzzled me that Pyle was portrayed as such a Casper Milquetoast, until I realized that Lansdale was playing the same game. Greene saw a lot of Lansdale as Casper in Saigon, but Greene's friends in the French SDECE were able to fill in Greene on Lansdale's extremely sinister side. In a sense this is a large part of the American self-portrait, pretending to be a democracy and mouthing all the Burma Shave maxims about goodness and charity, while massacring people all over the world. During WW2, the Japanese in the Philippines killed approximately 250,000 people. Half a century earlier, when America staged the Spanish-American War to distract its population during a serious depression, American troops fresh out from massacring Indians, killed over one million people in the Philippines. Including women and children. And now has made all the Japanese war loot vanish. Citibank came under legal pressure to release 50 million in gold bullion deposited in it by Santa Romana, the Opus Dei agent in Manila, and I've seen the state treasury documents from Albany verifying those accounts, but Citibank ducked the whole issue by moving all that bullion secretly to Cititrust in Nassau. In short, the bank stole the gold. Then recently pretended to be in danger of bankruptcy. The whole farce gives me nausea. And they try to get their hands on Assange by accusing him of terrorism and treason, while the Swedes charge him with rape when two girls who invited him into bed in their own homes claim the condom broke, so they might come down with AIDS. And the journalists keep reporting that Assange is charged with rape and sex crimes. If the girls withdrew the charges and admitted the condom broke, after inviting him to bed, where is the rape? It's the Lansdale sickness/psychosis, doublethink, and cultural gangrene.

Hi Robert ~

I wonder where French aristocrats go when they die? Especially when they die in the Great Satan !!!

I remember somebody saying: "When good Americans die, they go to Paris." These days, when good Taiwanese die they go to Shanghai.

Thats pretty good, sort of like an inverted "old wines never die, they just ripen with old age"

well maybe not, lol.

I saw something that I wanted you to see, to see if you had any thoughts on it....

It has to do with Nick Arundel......

I believe the crime scene at Dealey Plaza and the voluminous amount of persons going in and out of Dallas

before the assassination are the main indications there was a conspiracy.

Such as the fairly big names who came to Dallas in the days and weeks before the assassination, coupled with the persons in the motorcade, and locals who have not exactly survived that event with their reputations intact.

Governor George Wallace

former Vice-President Richard Nixon [left Dallas early November 22, 1963; he told the

FBI, in a Warren Commission document he left November, 19, 1963.]

Donald Kendall, Pepsi CEO, and a strong financial backer of Nixon.

actress Joan Crawford

former CIA Director Allen Dulles

former General Edwin Walker, [on a plane between Dallas and Louisiana]

Madame Ngo Dinh Nhu [in Dallas on October 24, 1963]

112th Army Intelligence member James Powell, locked inside the

TSBD, had been taking photos; one of the TSBD.

Eugene Hale Brading known crime figure

A photo taken moments after the assassination reveals someone

identical with, or certainly attempting to create the impression that

he is E Howard Hunt.

Jack Lawrence [left his company car in Dealey Plaza

ran to the bathroom of the Downtown Lincoln Mercury

and threw up, shortly after the assassination.

This was the same dealership where "Oswald"

test drove a car in speeds of excess of 85 mph]

Lawrence left Dallas after the assassination, with no

forwarding address, the FBI does not seem to have made a

serious attempt to locate him.

Brothers Edward and Lawrence Meyers, and Lawrence's son Ralph

The Meyers family is one area that provides a link of sorts between

Jack Ruby and Richard Nixon. P.D. Scott is recorded as

stating that Nixon was also in Dallas to purchase land for a new Pepsico

plant from the Great Southwestern Corporation

The night before the assassination. Ruby had dinner with the brothers

at the Bon Vivant Room at the Cabana Hotel, he was friends with

Lawrence. Lawrence's son Ralph was, a member of the Army Security Agency with

a crypto-clearance.

Edward was an owner of the Pepsico plant in Queens, New York

Russell M Arundel was, at least in the early 1950's the Washington representative of Pepsi-Cola

See page 85 Coup d'Etat In America

only namebase.org listing same last name

see below from

http://www.oocities....rea/linksO.html

I was also able to find out a little bit more about the professional life of Russell M. Arundel. Apparently, he was a Washington lobbyist for Pepsi Cola. He was also president/chairman of the Pepsi-Cola Bottling Co. of Long Island, Inc. According to an article from Time magazine (January 12, 1953), "For 17 months, the Senate subcommittee on Privileges and Elections fitfully investigated Wisconsin's Republican Senator Joe McCarthy and Connecticut's Democratic Senator William Benton. Reasons for the investigation were 1) Benton's resolution to expel McCarthy from the Senate on the ground of unfitness, and 2) McCarthy's resolution to dispose of Benton in like manner. Last week, the subcommittee turned in its report." The article mentions an important connection between McCarthy and Arundel: "In 1947, McCarthy got Russell M. Arundel, a Washington representative for the Pepsi-Cola Co., to endorse a $20,000 note for him. That year, both Pepsi-Cola and McCarthy were urging the Federal Government to end sugar controls. Asked the subcommittee: Did McCarthy follow the 'Pepsi-Cola line' for financial gain?" Another source states that Arundel was questioned by the Senate panel in 1952: "The questioning was about a $20,000 note Arundel had endorsed for the senator in 1947. Arundel said the endorsement was a minor financial transaction for a friend." Ralph Morris, in his book The Future Catches Up: Selected Writings of Ralph M. Goldman states that McCarthy had began opposing sugar rationing in 1947. "At about this same time, McCarthy became an intimate of Walter Mack, then president of Pepsi-Cola Company, a firm with an intense interest in sugar rationing matters." McCarthy achieved the distinction of being the Senate spokesman for the soft-drink giant. "In fact, [he] came to be known, for a brief period, as 'the Pepsi-Cola Kid.' In January 1948, the Appleton State Bank loaned McCarthy $20000 against McCarthy's note (which was endorsed by Russell Arundel, Washington representative of Pepsi-Cola)." Ultimately, McCarthy and Republican Senator John W. Bricker of Ohio were successful in bringing enough pressure in Congress resulting in the end of sugar rationing.

I was also able to ascertain that the Nova Scotia Bird Society (which owns a few other Tusket Islands) obtained Outer Bald Tusket Island from Russell Arundel and the Nature Conservancy of Canada on December 28, 1973. The price was one Canadian dollar. The Society then erected a sign which states: "Earle E. Arundel Breeding Bird Sanctuary Conveyed to The Nova Scotia Bird Society by Nature Conservancy of Canada. Hunting permitted in Season". According to Prof. David Currie, "The stone building is still there and as of the last survey in 1987, by Ted D'Eon, was in pretty good shape, but the wood parts were extensively rotted. There was no need to restore or maintain the building from a Bird Sanctuary point of view. Ted's grandfather was one of the mason's who worked on the building when or just before The Prince of Baldonia stayed there. One of the conditions of the ownership transfer was that the island continue to be used by specific people named in the deed for pasture land for sheep as long as those specific people lived. It also stated that there would never be interference of the tern colony that was once there."

It seems that the Principality continued to exist even after Outer Bald Tusket Island was sold to the Nova Scotia Bird Society. On the Internet, I found mention of someone who worked at the studios of WAVA-AM "in a skyrise building on…N. Moore Street" in Rosslyn, VA (separated from the Georgetown section of Washington, D.C. by the Potomac River). This radio station was owned by broadcasting pioneer, Arthur Windsor "Nick"/"Nicky" Arundel, who had bought the bankrupt country music radio station circa 1960/61 and turned it into the first all-news radio station in the country (WAVA-AM and WAVA-FM are currently based in Arlington, VA and they serve the Washington D.C. metropolitan area). "In 1974, I toiled daily on the building's fifth floor in a non-broadcast job, so I knew from reading the directory in the lobby that the station's penthouse quarters also housed the 'Embassy of Outer Baldonia'. One fine day, I happened to share an elevator ride with WAVA's big enchilada, Arthur W. Arundel. As I was a cocky young lad of 22, I boldly inquired, 'How are things in Outer Baldonia?.' Thirty-three years later, I can still remember Arundel's icy, silent stare as if that incident had happened yesterday." The author, after researching "Outer Baldonia" online, learned about Russell M. Arundel. This leads him to ask: "Does anybody know if the two Arundels were related?" After some additional investigation, I was able to ascertain that Arthur Arundel was indeed the son of Russell Arundel. He is a fascinating and controversial figure in his own right. A Harvard graduate, he became a decorated U.S. Marine Corps combat officer (1951-1955) in both Korea and Vietnam. He was the recipient of at least one Purple Heart. I found helpful details about his murky military/CIA career (he is listed as an employee of the Central Intelligence Agency in the Pentagon Papers), thanks to a fascinating article (Hunt Country crowd's minister of propaganda) authored by L. Wolfe, in the December 15, 1995 issue of the Executive Intelligence Review: "Nicky, a Marine paratroop officer, [was] tasked to the CIA during service in Korea and Vietnam in the early 1950s". This was achieved with the help of Harold Jefferson Coolidge, Jr. (more about this individual below). "Operating as part of the 'secret team' operations of Col. Edwin Lansdale, Nicky Arundel was taught, and practiced, the art of 'black propaganda' in 'civil affairs' operations, becoming a specialist in 'psywar ops.' He was involved, for example, in destroying the largest printing facility in what was then the northern section of Vietnam; later, he helped run a 'psywar' campaign aimed at setting up a counterinsurgency among northern tribes in Vietnam, causing their migration to the south and laying the ground for that country's partition; this, in turn, helped set the stage for the Vietnam War." Arthur Arundel also had a strong background in journalism. After he returned home, he worked in the Washington bureau of CBS and also served as a correspondent (wire service reporter) for United Press International. He also did a stint (arranged by his father and Coolidge) in the U.S. Commerce Department. But first and foremost, he was a newspaper publisher. He founded ArCom Publishing, Inc., which traces its roots to the time when Arundel purchased WAVA (the company was then known as Arundel Communications). In 1963, his business expanded from radio and television into print journalism with the purchase of the 165-year-old Loudoun Times-Mirror in Leesburg, VA. As he acquired more and more newspapers (Reston Times, the Loudoun Times-Mirror, the Fauquier Times-Democrat, Rappahannock News, etc…), he became Chairman, CEO, and Publisher of the Times Community Newspapers (ArCom Publishing remains the parent company). This suburban newspaper chain, which now includes a group of about 21 local publications in Northern Virginia, is the largest one in the region. Arthur Arundel sold WAVA and five other stations in the 1970s. He has been inducted into the Hall of Fame of Virginia Communications. The family-owned newspaper company is run today by Peter Arundel, the founder's son, successful in his own right as a career broadcast and print journalist (he became CEO in February of 2005). Peter's brother, John Arundel, is also a newsman: he became the Executive Editor and Publisher of the Alexandria Times in 2005.

Wolfe's article contains some additional tidbits about Russell Arundel (including the topics of Pepsi and sweeteners) and his son: "Russell Arundel, once administrative aide to Sen. Jesse Metcalfe (R-R.L), was active in GOP circles working subversion against the Franklin Roosevelt administration. Those circles were dominated by the Morgan interests, one of the most notorious London-controlled private banking nexuses. As was the case with several picked-up operatives, the Morgans made sure that Russell Arundel had sufficient wealth and connections to be of use to them; it was they who inserted him into" their Fauquier County (he had moved to the area of Northern Virginia known as the Hunt Country in the 1930s) fox-hunting parties. Arundel "became a master of the hunt. The Arundel estate was located on Wildcat Mountain; the other side of the mountain was owned by Lawrence Morgan Hamilton, the grandson of J. P. Morgan. Sources in London and in Loudoun County, Virginia indicate that the key controller of Russell Arundel, and later the sponsor of his son, Nicky, was Harold Jefferson Coolidge, Jr., a member of one of Boston's dirtiest Anglophile families and one of the creators of the British crown's far-flung private intelligence networks operating under 'environmental cover.' The Coolidge family were, by the middle of the last century, the leading opium traders in the United States, linked directly to the British East India Company and Jardine Matheson Company, the Crown's leading opium traders. The Coolidges parlayed this 'dope money' into control of the Bank of Boston and the United Fruit Company, both of which have been used as funding conduits and, in the case of United Fruit (now United Brands), cover for British-allied intelligence operations. The Coolidges intermarried into the Virginia 'aristocracy,' through the family of Thomas Jefferson. Coolidge, who later played an important role in promoting British-linked operative Allen Dulles's organization of American intelligence, picked up Russell Arundel in the mid-1930s, and put him into the leadership of the National Wildlife Management Institute, a position which Arundel held for most of the rest of his life. An intelligence community source in London describes the institute, which was created with funds from the Morgan-controlled du Pont interests, through sections of the arms industry (Remington Firearms), as fully integrated with British intelligence operations, dating back to the 1930s; it later functioned in parallel with Prince Philip's World Wildlife Fund (WWF, now World Wide Fund for Nature), of which Coolidge was a founding member, and Prince Bernhard of the Netherlands' International Union for the Conservation of Nature (IUCN). (Coolidge, a mammologist, was closely associated with the British intelligence operative and biologist Julian Huxley. He was head of the IUCN and its president emeritus until his death in 1985.) Sources in Loudoun County report that Coolidge helped put Russell Arundel in touch with Pepsi Cola Company. Arundel was given the assignment of arranging, through his legislative connections, for an exemption for Pepsi to import corn syrup from the Caribbean at a time when sugar imports were prohibited. Under the direction of Pepsi chairman Wallace Groves (who in 1941 was convicted of mail fraud and sent to prison, and whose links to organized crime were later exposed), Arundel shuttled back and forth to Cuba, whose sugar and syrup production was effectively controlled by the Meyer Lansky 'Murder, Inc.' mob, which ran the unions and many of the production facilities, with overlapping connections into Coolidge's United Fruit. Russell Arundel got his fingers more than dirty in negotiating contracts for Pepsi. But he was well rewarded for his efforts, receiving in 1943 the Pepsi bottling franchise for New York. He later parlayed this into Pepcom, which held the franchise for the entire East Coast and is the source of the Arundel family fortune that provided Nicky with the seed money for his publishing empire." Arthur "inherited a considerable sum from his father." In another part of the article, Wolfe writes: "The [Arundel] family's involvement with Africa policy dates back to the 1930s, when Nicky Arundel's father, Russell, became involved with a British-linked network of intelligence specialists who established the National Wildlife Management Institute (NWMI), at the instigation of Harold Coolidge; this organization was directly linked to the International Nature Office, which was already at that time running projects nominally involved with the tracking and cataloging of various wildlife species in Africa…A London-based intelligence specialist in these matters reports that such projects were used by the British Secret Intelligence Service (SIS) as 'covers' for the placement of agents and for spying on various nationalist and other insurgencies. After the war, the NWMI played a role in helping establish the 'need' for large game preserves. The Oct.28, 1994 EIR Special Report, 'The Coming Fall of the House of Windsor,' documents how these preserves are used as bases of subversive activity, and a means to 'lock up' vast mineral reserves in Africa, under British control. In 1956, Russell Arundel, as director of NWMI, sponsored one of the first 'invasions' of Africa by American zoologists. The mission was led by Lee Tolbert, who was later to become a top consultant for the WWF, the director of the royal family-created International Union for the Conservation of Nature, and a top assistant to Russell Train at the Environmental Protection Agency. The mission was focused on the 'white rhino' and 'mountain gorilla' populations. During this period, Nicky Arundel went on several safaris to Africa on behalf of the National Zoo, including some with his father. It is not known whether he went on the 1956 mission…In 1961, Nicky Arundel was tapped by Coolidge, CIA operative Kermit Roosevelt, and Russell Train (reported to be a protégé of Coolidge) to found the African Wildlife Leadership Foundation, now known as the African Wildlife Foundation (AWF). This is an 'off line,' privatized intelligence operation which recruits and trains operatives to run the game parks. All its members can be described as highly trained Anglo-American intelligence assets. The AWF, which Arundel formerly headed, has been implicated in the genocide in Rwanda through its sponsorship of a mountain gorilla protection project in the Virunga game park on the Uganda-Rwanda border; this area, under the virtual supervision of AWF operatives, is the key transmission belt for British-backed forces which instigated the Rwandan civil war. Our London source says that the AWF and Nicky Arundel play a continuing important role in British Africa policy, through the mountain gorilla and other projects. Arundel's family foundation, as well Arundel personally, provide funding for these projects, as does the WWF and the Ohrstrom family foundations. Arundel is also reported to have influence over U.S. Rep. Frank Wolf (R-Va.), whose Tenth District includes the Hunt Country of Loudoun and parts of Fauquier counties. Wolf has played a major role in the destabilization of Sudan, in accordance with British policy objectives. Wolf and his office have been in direct contact with British Overseas Development Minister Baroness Lynda Chalker on these and other matters pertaining to Africa policy."

Outer Baldonia's sole numismatic issue is a 10 Tunar piece, dated "O.B. 1948" (which makes one wonder if Boudreau made an error in declaring, twice, that Arundel landed on Outer Bald Tusket Island in 1949). Two varieties exist: one minted in "STERLING SILVER" and one minted in ".826 FINE GOLD". I've even seen a pair of 14-karat gold earrings for sale that feature two of the gold coins! According to the seller: "My mom got them from a very elderly well to do lady along with many other pieces of jewelry. My mom still has a bracelet with I think 3 or 4 more of these coins on it." It just makes me wonder if Russell Arundel at some point had these jewelry items made as gifts for VIPs! I purchased a silver piece from a fellow collector, the Rev. Norman Winter, whom I met via eBay (he was the original bidder on the very first Zilchstadt coin I listed on that site). It is truly a well-designed, official-looking little artifact.

S. Seagrave David ~ Thanks. I appreciate that very much. It always puzzled me that Pyle was portrayed as such a Casper Milquetoast, until I realized that Lansdale was playing the same game. Greene saw a lot of Lansdale as Casper in Saigon, but Greene's friends in the French SDECE were able to fill in Greene on Lansdale's extremely sinister side.

Is Kennedy at Langley in that shot?

I am not sure. When JFK first announced McCone as Dulles successor, on Sep 27. 61 it was at the Naval War College/Rhode Island...but this is two month later.

JFK was "pensioning" Dulles that day. All the pics can be found here:JFK Dulles

According to this page it was at "CIA Headquaters"...but Langley wasnt ready untill Feb 1962. Otherwise: it couldnt be Foggy bottom because of the helicopters in the background...

That photo looks like it was taken on the green directly in front of the agency's main entrance of the main building (the H-shaped main building was shaped that way because the architect's name began with an H -- Harrison of Harrison & Abramowitz) next to the separate round auditorium where they bestow the Intelligence Stars. It could not have been the old naval hospital complex the agency first moved into in Foggy Bottom, because it's greens are contoured, very well groomed, and closely surrounded by the old stone buildings, with the Potomac clearly visible if you have your back to the Department of State. Just after writing this I saw the photo with the red arrow posted just now by Karl, so he and I agree on the probable location. Plus you can see Harrison's H clearly in the aerial view.

According to Prof. David Currie, "The stone building is still there and as of the last survey in 1987, by Ted D'Eon, was in pretty good shape, but the wood parts were extensively rotted. There was no need to restore or maintain the building from a Bird Sanctuary point of view. Ted's grandfather was one of the mason's who worked on the building when or just before The Prince of Baldonia stayed there. One of the conditions of the ownership transfer was that the island continue to be used by specific people named in the deed for pasture land for sheep as long as those specific people lived. It also stated that there would never be interference of the tern colony that was once there."

It seems that the Principality continued to exist even after Outer Bald Tusket Island was sold to the Nova Scotia Bird Society. On the Internet, I found mention of someone who worked at the studios of WAVA-AM "in a skyrise building on…N. Moore Street" in Rosslyn, VA (separated from the Georgetown section of Washington, D.C. by the Potomac River). This radio station was owned by broadcasting pioneer, Arthur Windsor "Nick"/"Nicky" Arundel, who had bought the bankrupt country music radio station circa 1960/61 and turned it into the first all-news radio station in the country (WAVA-AM and WAVA-FM are currently based in Arlington, VA and they serve the Washington D.C. metropolitan area). "In 1974, I toiled daily on the building's fifth floor in a non-broadcast job, so I knew from reading the directory in the lobby that the station's penthouse quarters also housed the 'Embassy of Outer Baldonia'. One fine day, I happened to share an elevator ride with WAVA's big enchilada, Arthur W. Arundel. As I was a cocky young lad of 22, I boldly inquired, 'How are things in Outer Baldonia?.' Thirty-three years later, I can still remember Arundel's icy, silent stare as if that incident had happened yesterday." The author, after researching "Outer Baldonia" online, learned about Russell M. Arundel. This leads him to ask: "Does anybody know if the two Arundels were related?" After some additional investigation, I was able to ascertain that Arthur Arundel was indeed the son of Russell Arundel. He is a fascinating and controversial figure in his own right. A Harvard graduate, he became a decorated U.S. Marine Corps combat officer (1951-1955) in both Korea and Vietnam. He was the recipient of at least one Purple Heart. I found helpful details about his murky military/CIA career (he is listed as an employee of the Central Intelligence Agency in the Pentagon Papers), thanks to a fascinating article (Hunt Country crowd's minister of propaganda) authored by L. Wolfe, in the December 15, 1995 issue of the Executive Intelligence Review: "Nicky, a Marine paratroop officer, [was] tasked to the CIA during service in Korea and Vietnam in the early 1950s". This was achieved with the help of Harold Jefferson Coolidge, Jr. (more about this individual below). "Operating as part of the 'secret team' operations of Col. Edwin Lansdale, Nicky Arundel was taught, and practiced, the art of 'black propaganda' in 'civil affairs' operations, becoming a specialist in 'psywar ops.' He was involved, for example, in destroying the largest printing facility in what was then the northern section of Vietnam; later, he helped run a 'psywar' campaign aimed at setting up a counterinsurgency among northern tribes in Vietnam, causing their migration to the south and laying the ground for that country's partition; this, in turn, helped set the stage for the Vietnam War." Arthur Arundel also had a strong background in journalism. After he returned home, he worked in the Washington bureau of CBS and also served as a correspondent (wire service reporter) for United Press International. He also did a stint (arranged by his father and Coolidge) in the U.S. Commerce Department. But first and foremost, he was a newspaper publisher. He founded ArCom Publishing, Inc., which traces its roots to the time when Arundel purchased WAVA (the company was then known as Arundel Communications). In 1963, his business expanded from radio and television into print journalism with the purchase of the 165-year-old Loudoun Times-Mirror in Leesburg, VA. As he acquired more and more newspapers (Reston Times, the Loudoun Times-Mirror, the Fauquier Times-Democrat, Rappahannock News, etc…), he became Chairman, CEO, and Publisher of the Times Community Newspapers (ArCom Publishing remains the parent company). This suburban newspaper chain, which now includes a group of about 21 local publications in Northern Virginia, is the largest one in the region. Arthur Arundel sold WAVA and five other stations in the 1970s. He has been inducted into the Hall of Fame of Virginia Communications. The family-owned newspaper company is run today by Peter Arundel, the founder's son, successful in his own right as a career broadcast and print journalist (he became CEO in February of 2005). Peter's brother, John Arundel, is also a newsman: he became the Executive Editor and Publisher of the Alexandria Times in 2005.

Wolfe's article contains some additional tidbits about Russell Arundel (including the topics of Pepsi and sweeteners) and his son: "Russell Arundel, once administrative aide to Sen. Jesse Metcalfe (R-R.L), was active in GOP circles working subversion against the Franklin Roosevelt administration. Those circles were dominated by the Morgan interests, one of the most notorious London-controlled private banking nexuses. As was the case with several picked-up operatives, the Morgans made sure that Russell Arundel had sufficient wealth and connections to be of use to them; it was they who inserted him into" their Fauquier County (he had moved to the area of Northern Virginia known as the Hunt Country in the 1930s) fox-hunting parties. Arundel "became a master of the hunt. The Arundel estate was located on Wildcat Mountain; the other side of the mountain was owned by Lawrence Morgan Hamilton, the grandson of J. P. Morgan. Sources in London and in Loudoun County, Virginia indicate that the key controller of Russell Arundel, and later the sponsor of his son, Nicky, was Harold Jefferson Coolidge, Jr., a member of one of Boston's dirtiest Anglophile families and one of the creators of the British crown's far-flung private intelligence networks operating under 'environmental cover.' The Coolidge family were, by the middle of the last century, the leading opium traders in the United States, linked directly to the British East India Company and Jardine Matheson Company, the Crown's leading opium traders. The Coolidges parlayed this 'dope money' into control of the Bank of Boston and the United Fruit Company, both of which have been used as funding conduits and, in the case of United Fruit (now United Brands), cover for British-allied intelligence operations. The Coolidges intermarried into the Virginia 'aristocracy,' through the family of Thomas Jefferson. Coolidge, who later played an important role in promoting British-linked operative Allen Dulles's organization of American intelligence, picked up Russell Arundel in the mid-1930s, and put him into the leadership of the National Wildlife Management Institute, a position which Arundel held for most of the rest of his life. An intelligence community source in London describes the institute, which was created with funds from the Morgan-controlled du Pont interests, through sections of the arms industry (Remington Firearms), as fully integrated with British intelligence operations, dating back to the 1930s; it later functioned in parallel with Prince Philip's World Wildlife Fund (WWF, now World Wide Fund for Nature), of which Coolidge was a founding member, and Prince Bernhard of the Netherlands' International Union for the Conservation of Nature (IUCN). (Coolidge, a mammologist, was closely associated with the British intelligence operative and biologist Julian Huxley. He was head of the IUCN and its president emeritus until his death in 1985.) Sources in Loudoun County report that Coolidge helped put Russell Arundel in touch with Pepsi Cola Company. Arundel was given the assignment of arranging, through his legislative connections, for an exemption for Pepsi to import corn syrup from the Caribbean at a time when sugar imports were prohibited. Under the direction of Pepsi chairman Wallace Groves (who in 1941 was convicted of mail fraud and sent to prison, and whose links to organized crime were later exposed), Arundel shuttled back and forth to Cuba, whose sugar and syrup production was effectively controlled by the Meyer Lansky 'Murder, Inc.' mob, which ran the unions and many of the production facilities, with overlapping connections into Coolidge's United Fruit. Russell Arundel got his fingers more than dirty in negotiating contracts for Pepsi. But he was well rewarded for his efforts, receiving in 1943 the Pepsi bottling franchise for New York. He later parlayed this into Pepcom, which held the franchise for the entire East Coast and is the source of the Arundel family fortune that provided Nicky with the seed money for his publishing empire." Arthur "inherited a considerable sum from his father." In another part of the article, Wolfe writes: "The [Arundel] family's involvement with Africa policy dates back to the 1930s, when Nicky Arundel's father, Russell, became involved with a British-linked network of intelligence specialists who established the National Wildlife Management Institute (NWMI), at the instigation of Harold Coolidge; this organization was directly linked to the International Nature Office, which was already at that time running projects nominally involved with the tracking and cataloging of various wildlife species in Africa…A London-based intelligence specialist in these matters reports that such projects were used by the British Secret Intelligence Service (SIS) as 'covers' for the placement of agents and for spying on various nationalist and other insurgencies. After the war, the NWMI played a role in helping establish the 'need' for large game preserves. The Oct.28, 1994 EIR Special Report, 'The Coming Fall of the House of Windsor,' documents how these preserves are used as bases of subversive activity, and a means to 'lock up' vast mineral reserves in Africa, under British control. In 1956, Russell Arundel, as director of NWMI, sponsored one of the first 'invasions' of Africa by American zoologists. The mission was led by Lee Tolbert, who was later to become a top consultant for the WWF, the director of the royal family-created International Union for the Conservation of Nature, and a top assistant to Russell Train at the Environmental Protection Agency. The mission was focused on the 'white rhino' and 'mountain gorilla' populations. During this period, Nicky Arundel went on several safaris to Africa on behalf of the National Zoo, including some with his father. It is not known whether he went on the 1956 mission…In 1961, Nicky Arundel was tapped by Coolidge, CIA operative Kermit Roosevelt, and Russell Train (reported to be a protégé of Coolidge) to found the African Wildlife Leadership Foundation, now known as the African Wildlife Foundation (AWF). This is an 'off line,' privatized intelligence operation which recruits and trains operatives to run the game parks. All its members can be described as highly trained Anglo-American intelligence assets. The AWF, which Arundel formerly headed, has been implicated in the genocide in Rwanda through its sponsorship of a mountain gorilla protection project in the Virunga game park on the Uganda-Rwanda border; this area, under the virtual supervision of AWF operatives, is the key transmission belt for British-backed forces which instigated the Rwandan civil war. Our London source says that the AWF and Nicky Arundel play a continuing important role in British Africa policy, through the mountain gorilla and other projects. Arundel's family foundation, as well Arundel personally, provide funding for these projects, as does the WWF and the Ohrstrom family foundations. Arundel is also reported to have influence over U.S. Rep. Frank Wolf (R-Va.), whose Tenth District includes the Hunt Country of Loudoun and parts of Fauquier counties. Wolf has played a major role in the destabilization of Sudan, in accordance with British policy objectives. Wolf and his office have been in direct contact with British Overseas Development Minister Baroness Lynda Chalker on these and other matters pertaining to Africa policy."

Outer Baldonia's sole numismatic issue is a 10 Tunar piece, dated "O.B. 1948" (which makes one wonder if Boudreau made an error in declaring, twice, that Arundel landed on Outer Bald Tusket Island in 1949). Two varieties exist: one minted in "STERLING SILVER" and one minted in ".826 FINE GOLD". I've even seen a pair of 14-karat gold earrings for sale that feature two of the gold coins! According to the seller: "My mom got them from a very elderly well to do lady along with many other pieces of jewelry. My mom still has a bracelet with I think 3 or 4 more of these coins on it." It just makes me wonder if Russell Arundel at some point had these jewelry items made as gifts for VIPs! I purchased a silver piece from a fellow collector, the Rev. Norman Winter, whom I met via eBay (he was the original bidder on the very first Zilchstadt coin I listed on that site). It is truly a well-designed, official-looking little artifact.

Wow, Robert, that's a Full Monty, and I'll need to digest it properly before replying. Just a couple of quick thoughts: Joan Crawford (Mummy, Dearest) was also on the top Pepsi board; Pepsi was heavily involved with Lansky and William Pawley who ran CAMCO in Nationalist China during WW2 for Mme. Chiang and Donovan and Lansky's attorney Paul Helliwell who set up the agency's black banks, Air America, and Southern Air Transport, and Pawley later was US ambassador to Brasil; Pawley and Lansky were intimate friends and owned most of the sugar fields in Cuba that supplied Pepsi, and involved a number of other Dealey noteworthies described at length by Russ Baker in his book about Mortimer Snerd Bush ("Family of Secrets"). I know the Hunt Country very well because of acquaintances living and working there, some of whom owned vast estates for fox hunting (many estates eventually being willed to the agency) and the agency's Warrenton Training Center on the hilltop with an antenna farm and much else. Lake Brittle is part of the agency history and of the owners of several major military/industrial megacorps. I imagine Maryland's Anne Arundel County outside DC also is connected (may be connected to your Arundels, but also to many agency activities, including home of NSA adjacent to Ft. Bragg). The Patuxent wildlife refuge is where a scientist from Ft Detrick who brought many kuru brains from the New Guinea highlands, injected kuru into animals at the refuge. The refuge was run down and some of those animals escaped into the wilderness region surrounding Chesapeake Bay, eventually spreading mutations of the disease to a large variety of wild animals all over the US and Canada, as one of the unforeseen consequences of the agency's global CBW search for exotic diseases like ebola immediately after WW2 (see Colm Kelleher's "Brain Trust"). Lansdale, Dulles, JFK, Lansky, Nixon who borrowed money from Lansky, Morgan, Mellon, Donovan, so many people networking and all tied to Dealey. Another tidbit: Singlaub's US Council for World Freedom has a major donor in Howard Leach, who financed the Florida recount in 2000 that put Mortimer Snerd in the White House; this is the Leach of the firm of Leach-McMicking, whose McMicking is the nephew of General Joe McMicking, Lansdale's boss at G-2 in Manila, who had the foresight to marry Mercedes Zobel of the richest oligarchic family in the Philippines and Spain. More later.

Hi Robert ~

I wonder where French aristocrats go when they die? Especially when they die in the Great Satan !!!

I remember somebody saying: "When good Americans die, they go to Paris." These days, when good Taiwanese die they go to Shanghai.

Thats pretty good, sort of like an inverted "old wines never die, they just ripen with old age"

well maybe not, lol.

I saw something that I wanted you to see, to see if you had any thoughts on it....

It has to do with Nick Arundel......

I believe the crime scene at Dealey Plaza and the voluminous amount of persons going in and out of Dallas

before the assassination are the main indications there was a conspiracy.

Such as the fairly big names who came to Dallas in the days and weeks before the assassination, coupled with the persons in the motorcade, and locals who have not exactly survived that event with their reputations intact.

Governor George Wallace

former Vice-President Richard Nixon [left Dallas early November 22, 1963; he told the

FBI, in a Warren Commission document he left November, 19, 1963.]

Donald Kendall, Pepsi CEO, and a strong financial backer of Nixon.

actress Joan Crawford

former CIA Director Allen Dulles

former General Edwin Walker, [on a plane between Dallas and Louisiana]

Madame Ngo Dinh Nhu [in Dallas on October 24, 1963]

112th Army Intelligence member James Powell, locked inside the

TSBD, had been taking photos; one of the TSBD.

Eugene Hale Brading known crime figure

A photo taken moments after the assassination reveals someone

identical with, or certainly attempting to create the impression that

he is E Howard Hunt.

Jack Lawrence [left his company car in Dealey Plaza

ran to the bathroom of the Downtown Lincoln Mercury

and threw up, shortly after the assassination.

This was the same dealership where "Oswald"

test drove a car in speeds of excess of 85 mph]

Lawrence left Dallas after the assassination, with no

forwarding address, the FBI does not seem to have made a

serious attempt to locate him.

Brothers Edward and Lawrence Meyers, and Lawrence's son Ralph

The Meyers family is one area that provides a link of sorts between

Jack Ruby and Richard Nixon. P.D. Scott is recorded as

stating that Nixon was also in Dallas to purchase land for a new Pepsico

plant from the Great Southwestern Corporation

The night before the assassination. Ruby had dinner with the brothers

at the Bon Vivant Room at the Cabana Hotel, he was friends with

Lawrence. Lawrence's son Ralph was, a member of the Army Security Agency with

a crypto-clearance.

Edward was an owner of the Pepsico plant in Queens, New York

Russell M Arundel was, at least in the early 1950's the Washington representative of Pepsi-Cola

See page 85 Coup d'Etat In America

I was also able to find out a little bit more about the professional life of Russell M. Arundel. Apparently, he was a Washington lobbyist for Pepsi Cola. He was also president/chairman of the Pepsi-Cola Bottling Co. of Long Island, Inc. According to an article from Time magazine (January 12, 1953), "For 17 months, the Senate subcommittee on Privileges and Elections fitfully investigated Wisconsin's Republican Senator Joe McCarthy and Connecticut's Democratic Senator William Benton. Reasons for the investigation were 1) Benton's resolution to expel McCarthy from the Senate on the ground of unfitness, and 2) McCarthy's resolution to dispose of Benton in like manner. Last week, the subcommittee turned in its report." The article mentions an important connection between McCarthy and Arundel: "In 1947, McCarthy got Russell M. Arundel, a Washington representative for the Pepsi-Cola Co., to endorse a $20,000 note for him. That year, both Pepsi-Cola and McCarthy were urging the Federal Government to end sugar controls. Asked the subcommittee: Did McCarthy follow the 'Pepsi-Cola line' for financial gain?" Another source states that Arundel was questioned by the Senate panel in 1952: "The questioning was about a $20,000 note Arundel had endorsed for the senator in 1947. Arundel said the endorsement was a minor financial transaction for a friend." Ralph Morris, in his book The Future Catches Up: Selected Writings of Ralph M. Goldman states that McCarthy had began opposing sugar rationing in 1947. "At about this same time, McCarthy became an intimate of Walter Mack, then president of Pepsi-Cola Company, a firm with an intense interest in sugar rationing matters." McCarthy achieved the distinction of being the Senate spokesman for the soft-drink giant. "In fact, [he] came to be known, for a brief period, as 'the Pepsi-Cola Kid.' In January 1948, the Appleton State Bank loaned McCarthy $20000 against McCarthy's note (which was endorsed by Russell Arundel, Washington representative of Pepsi-Cola)." Ultimately, McCarthy and Republican Senator John W. Bricker of Ohio were successful in bringing enough pressure in Congress resulting in the end of sugar rationing.

I was also able to ascertain that the Nova Scotia Bird Society (which owns a few other Tusket Islands) obtained Outer Bald Tusket Island from Russell Arundel and the Nature Conservancy of Canada on December 28, 1973. The price was one Canadian dollar. The Society then erected a sign which states: "Earle E. Arundel Breeding Bird Sanctuary Conveyed to The Nova Scotia Bird Society by Nature Conservancy of Canada. Hunting permitted in Season". According to Prof. David Currie, "The stone building is still there and as of the last survey in 1987, by Ted D'Eon, was in pretty good shape, but the wood parts were extensively rotted. There was no need to restore or maintain the building from a Bird Sanctuary point of view. Ted's grandfather was one of the mason's who worked on the building when or just before The Prince of Baldonia stayed there. One of the conditions of the ownership transfer was that the island continue to be used by specific people named in the deed for pasture land for sheep as long as those specific people lived. It also stated that there would never be interference of the tern colony that was once there."

It seems that the Principality continued to exist even after Outer Bald Tusket Island was sold to the Nova Scotia Bird Society. On the Internet, I found mention of someone who worked at the studios of WAVA-AM "in a skyrise building on…N.

Wow, Robert, that's a Full Monty, and I'll need to digest it properly before replying. Just a couple of quick thoughts: Joan Crawford (Mummy, Dearest) was also on the top Pepsi board; Pepsi was heavily involved with Lansky and William Pawley who ran CAMCO in Nationalist China during WW2 for Mme. Chiang and Donovan and Lansky's attorney Paul Helliwell who set up the agency's black banks, Air America, and Southern Air Transport, and Pawley later was US ambassador to Brasil; Pawley and Lansky were intimate friends and owned most of the sugar fields in Cuba that supplied Pepsi, and involved a number of other Dealey noteworthies described at length by Russ Baker in his book about Mortimer Snerd Bush ("Family of Secrets"). I know the Hunt Country very well because of acquaintances living and working there, some of whom owned vast estates for fox hunting (many estates eventually being willed to the agency) and the agency's Warrenton Training Center on the hilltop with an antenna farm and much else. Lake Brittle is part of the agency history and of the owners of several major military/industrial megacorps. I imagine Maryland's Anne Arundel County outside DC also is connected (may be connected to your Arundels, but also to many agency activities, including home of NSA adjacent to Ft. Bragg). The Patuxent wildlife refuge is where a scientist from Ft Detrick who brought many kuru brains from the New Guinea highlands, injected kuru into animals at the refuge. The refuge was run down and some of those animals escaped into the wilderness region surrounding Chesapeake Bay, eventually spreading mutations of the disease to a large variety of wild animals all over the US and Canada, as one of the unforeseen consequences of the agency's global CBW search for exotic diseases like ebola immediately after WW2 (see Colm Kelleher's "Brain Trust"). Lansdale, Dulles, JFK, Lansky, Nixon who borrowed money from Lansky, Morgan, Mellon, Donovan, so many people networking and all tied to Dealey. Another tidbit: Singlaub's US Council for World Freedom has a major donor in Howard Leach, who financed the Florida recount in 2000 that put Mortimer Snerd in the White House; this is the Leach of the firm of Leach-McMicking, whose McMicking is the nephew of General Joe McMicking, Lansdale's boss at G-2 in Manila, who had the foresight to marry Mercedes Zobel of the richest oligarchic family in the Philippines and Spain. More later.

That's pretty fascinating information, I checked into Colm Kelleher's book and saw the references to NIH, Doug Horne mentions in Inside the ARRB, that NIH was located right across the street from Bethesda, where JFK 's autopsy was done.....I know then, Col. Charles Willoughby was with G-2 in Manila, when MacArthur left the Philippines to go to Australia [ie your reference to General Joe McMicking.] Awaiting to hear more, as usual, very grateful for your input and infinite knowledge base.

Another thing that may be more than incidental, which, in essence, is a correction to something I posted.

But, the kind of mistake, that I am glad I made, because, it made me look a little deeper.

I had posted earlier on this thread, that when Thomas Eli Davis was arrested in Morocco, Jack Ruby's friend, that he had

documents referencing Oswald and Ruby.

Well, according to Oswald Talked authors, Mary and Ray LaFontaine, the Oswald referenced in Thomas Eli Davis' notes

"was Victor Oswald, an international arms dealer in Madrid, and the Adnan Koshoggi of his day."

I tried to ascertain the source they cite, it is definitely not a declassified document, and appears to be the "Files of

Seth Kantor obtained from Bill Adams."

However, I did find other citations regarding Victor Oswald from April 11, 1950, March 27, 1950, and July 21, 1950

and a Viktor and Rudolph Oswald from Aug 23, 1950 file 450 file 8-6

Are we looking at a page out of the Oswald Project, the one that only two people ever mentioned by name.

Richard Helms and discredited CIA Accountant James Wilcott?

Notice two different sources, both are related to Spain, and Albert Osborne the itinerant preacher that no-one knows a

damn thing about was also known to have traveled to Madrid, Spain.

''Notice two different sources, both are related to Spain, and Albert Osborne the itinerant preacher that no-one knows a

sideline. could these be a track to EinsatzGruppenFuhrer Ewald Peters who had an Oswald under him.

Several clarifications: I erred in putting Ft Bragg next to NSA when I meant Ft Meade. McMicking was the colonel left in charge of G-2 in Manila when MacArthur and his inner circle moved to Tokyo, and Prouty was on the G-2 staff when Lansdale arrived from the States. McMicking was already a very rich man, having married into the Zobel family long before Pearl Harbor, so he was part of the clique around MacArthur that included Whitney (MacArthur's attorney) and Willoughby (MacArthur's "lovable fascist"). When MacArthur put Whitney in charge of intel, instead of Willoughby, MacArthur gave Willoughby G-2. While this clique was in Tokyo, Lansdale reported initially to Col. McMicking in Manila. In Tokyo it was Whitney who drafted the Japanese constitution, while Willoughby was liberating Col. Tsuji, and Kodama, etc., and putting them to work snuffing leftists and liberals in Japan, and staging provocations in South Korea that led to reprisals by North Korea, and so forth. This MacArthur clique (including Herbert Hoover) was incredibly rich, as was McMicking and other clique members in Manila, when Santa Romana and Lansdale began recovering the troves of war loot in Luzon and they all became infinitely richer. The war loot was moved by ship from Subic and in numerous cases by plane to Hong Kong or Australia where it entered Paul Helliwell's network of banks with the help of Lansky and others, and dispersed in so many ways it became hard to trace thereafter. However, McMicking, promoted to general, and already a multimillionaire in 1945, eventually spent billions in Spain on real estate, and passed on huge sums to his heirs including his nephew, who is the partner of Howard Leach, who financed the Florida recount in 2000. What tangled webs we weave.
