"THE" Manchurian Candidate - Anastase S. Vonsiatsky

Recommended Posts

Discussion regarding the evidence against JFK'S plotters gathered by analyzing both "The Manchurian Candidate", the novel, by Richard Condon and "The Manchurian Candidate", the movies by John Frankenheimer (1962) and Paramount Studios (2003). Draper and Vonsiatsky were also evidenced in the personas of Harold Gray's "Big Daddy" Warbucks and "Little Orphan" Annie deliberately.

As just one example of a Richard Condon "anagram" identifying Tsar Anastase Vonsiatsky here is the mapping from the anagram he inserted in the novel:

"...known: Yaztas, Fravashi and Amesha Spentas." and the deciphered phrase: "Tsar Anastase Vonsiatsky Dawn Phase Fashism" Every single letter in column 2 is used and mapped into column 3 and only a half dozen letters had to be used more than once. Condon also described Vonsiatsky's wife, he job as a Red Cross nurse, Vonsiatsky's role in the Fifth Column of Fascism, and other deliberately inserted similarities which will be covered in my manuscript later this month.

Here is the link in books.google.com to that exact phrase so you can see it for your self: "known: Yaztas, Fravashi and Amesha Spentas"


Here is another one to: "Miss Viola Narvilly - Opera Singer" which some have denied exists.


And one of my favorites: "Berlitz schools taught Temajegh"


This is almost impossible within a text file to get the columns to line up. But you should get the idea, right?

This link at least formats the rows and the columns better : http://wordhyperlinks.com/ManCandAnagrams.htm Any questions?

At the URL link above just click back and forth on the page tabs at the bottom for "1st Col Sort" and "4th Col Sort" to see how it toggles back and forth between the scrambled

and the unscrambled version of Richard Condon's anagram. You can just imagine the work he had to do in order to get this to come out correctly and the work that I had to

do to re-read the entire novel looking for closely clustered values of the letters contained in Vonsiatsky's full name and adopted title of "Tzar" like the letters: Z, V, K, Y, T

Just imagine all the work I had to do to show that Vonsiatsky was indeed present at The Richard Giesbrecht Winnipeg Airport Incident AND in The Manchurian Candidate, too.

Plus I had to find Draper's picture in his Harvard University 50th reunion yearbook from 1963 to see that he looked EXACTLY like "Big Daddy Warbucks" from "Little Orphan Annie" fame.

Please do not trivialize or minimize the efforts involved here. As Christopher Walkind once said: "You should be in AWWWWWE. You should be in total AWWWWWWE" ... that Harold

Gray in Little Orphan Annie, Richard Condon in The Manchurian Candidate (1958), Charles Higham in American Swastika (circa 1978), John Roy Carlson (actually Arthur Dernounian) in Undercover (1943) and

The Plotters (1944) and myself were able to track this Nazi bastard down. Even Prof. John J. Stephan in "The Russian Fascists" (Little Brown, 1979) spent half his book on Vonsiatsky but assisiduously

avoided fingering the guy in much of anything which leads me to believe John Stephan was indeed Max Stephan's son who was Gerald L K Smith's attorney. As a likely White Russian, John J.

Stephan would never finger a friend of his father's or a friend of his father's clients in the JFK conundrum. But I can and I did.

He was recalled to the United States when it became known that, possibly due to negligence on his part and that of the American consulate, the Italians were intercepting and passing on all British intelligence that he obtained to Colonel-General Erwin Rommel.

At the time Fellers was very busy suborning General Tojo and other key witnesses.

Scenes from the Postwar Reemergence of the Nazi Party

By Alex Constantine

We Germans should be realistic. We lost two wars to the Jews. Why should we lose another?

- Former Nazi propagandist Werner Naumann to British intelligence agents, July, 1953

In September 1944, Sims Carter, assistant chief of the Economic Warfare section of the Justice Department, testified before the Kilgore Committee that despite military defeat, the industrial cartels of German had renewed activity from bases in Argentina: "All the machinery," he said, "is ready for safeguarding German supremacy in the steadily expanding South American market." Much of that market had been quietly incorporated by I.G. Farben and other financial backers of Hitler well before the war began.

In the 1930s, as German factories tooled up for the onslaught, German entrepreneurs quietly built factories, railroads and chemical and steel plants throughout South America. The munitions industry was all but monopolized by Farben and Krupp, providing business fronts for the Nazi fifth column. The insinuation of Nazism into Caribbean politics was directed by Alfred Becker and Arnold Margerie, officers of Farben La Quimica Bayer in Caracas. Down in Argentina, Axel Wenner-Gren, a Swedish millionaire and crony of Herman Goering, Hitler's propaganda minister, established subsidiaries and gracefully snatched up key industrial plants.

After the war, Nazis quietly assumed new posts within the German government. The Konrad Adenauer government adopted an anti-Nazi facade in public while reelevating war criminals to prominence. By 1951, 134 former members of the National Socialist Party held senior positions in the West German Foreign Office. Attorney Hans Globke, author of the legal rationale underlying the Third Reich's racial laws, was placed in charge of Konrad Adenauer's Federal Press and Chancellory bureau. On January 19, 1953, the New York Times took notice: "Nazism is not dead in Germany." Given time and opportunity, "a form of Nazism could again rise to power.

Materially speaking, Nazism was smashed into a pulp by 1945," but the "vigorous roots remained."

A national priority was made of economic recovery. A memo from the German Press Department of B'nai B'rith to officials of the Jewish organization on July 1, 1953 detailed a meeting of the former Waffen SS in Verden, once a Nazi garrison town: "The reason this little alumni club exists is, one might way, plausible, even sentimental - to care for those in their ranks who survived and to locate lost comrades. The reunion, their first since the war, brought five thousand men to Verden. Mufti-clad, they marched through the cramped, flag-bedecked streets to the rally with all their famous and former military precision."


"For America!"

"Democracy is an attack upon God!" - Werner Naumann

Among their contacts in the United States, the Nazi "elite" could rely on the generous assistance of a well-connected patron, Pedro Del Valle, who went on to become a vice president of ITT. In 1954, Del Valle, a retired Marine Corps lieutenant general, was soundly defeated in his run for the Republican gubernatorial nomination. His campaign was spiced with public endorsements of a foaming aniti-Semitic tract, Know Your Enemy.

Twenty years later, Del Valle and ITT consultant John McCone, formerly a CIA director, threw in to overthrow Allende in Chile's 1970 elections. ITT funnelled $350,000 into event, and when the brutal dictatorship of Pinochet was installed, the conglomerate conspired with other "conservative" companies to pirate the country's natural resources. As a hedge against the fall of the Third Reich, German industrialists had made provisions in 1944 for protecting their loot from confiscation by the U.S and England.

On the instruction of Martin Bormann, the surviving SS, soon to be known as ODESSA, established hundreds of corporations abroad, donated handsomely to extreme right-wing political candidates in the U.S. and cleared the path for the reconstruction of the Reich on foreign soil.

All of this was accomplished by chanelling the loot through a labyrinth of secret bank accounts to non-belligerent countries, and under Bormann's direction financed 750 news companies worldwide to direct the Nazi Party reconsruction. Over 100 of those companies were based in the United States. Funds materialized in the bank accounts of Germany's agents around the world. They were instructed to invest in selected businesses, propaganda mills in the U.S. and elsewhere, give legal aid to indicted Nazis, purchase out-of-the-way estates for Nazi leaders in foreign lands, and so on. These funds also supported the "rat lines," escape routes from the Allied advance set up every 40 miles along the German border. Fascist opinion in the United States was fomented by American contacts.

For America, a spin-off of the America First Committee, was formed in 1954, ran by some of the leading WW II "isolationists." One of the organization's leading lights was Colonel Robert McCormick, publisher of the Chicago Tribune. The chairman of For America was Clarence Manion, formerly dean of law at Notre Dame University. Manion once sat on Eisenhower's Commission on Inter-Governmental Affairs. Robert Wood, then head of Sears, Roebuck, was a blustering propagandist for the bund. The stated aim of For America was the support of political candidates sympathetic to the Nazi cause.

Three congressmen made up the recruiting arm of the organization: Burton K. Wheeler, Hamilton Fish and Howard Buffett. Fish, a Republican Party leader, had as his greatest ambition the start of a third party based on principles of National Socialism. The others were already in disrepute for involvement in "non-interventionist" America First chapters and other enclabes of domestic Nazism during the war. "What will it take to disband this group?" asked the Atlanta Journal, "World War III?"

Confiscated Jewish assets were poured into the Nazi rebirth and turned up in the oddest places. On September 20, 1996, a half century after the fact, the Associated Press at long last noticed: "Tons of gold looted by Nazis during World War II - some of it possibly taken from the fillings in Holocaust victims' teeth - are stored in the Federal Reserve Bank of New York and the Bank of England in London. Recently declassified federal documents show that 6 tons of gold looted by Nazis are stored in the two banks, the World Jewish Congress said. The group's president has written to the two countries asking that the gold be returned to Holocaust survivors."

Elan Steinberg, speaking for the World Jewish Congress, based his allegations on declassified State Department documents that confirm two tons of Nazi gold had turned up in New York vaults (worth about $28 million) and four tons ($56 million) in London.


Un-American Activities

During the early '30s, in Washington, Congressman Hamilton Fish's life was changed by a reading of Communism in Germany, published by a Nazi propaganda front. Inspired by the book, he joined forces with George Sylvester Viereck, the ranking Nazi agent in the United States. Viereck was graciously given the run of Rep. Fish's suite at the House Office Building. Albert Kahn, in High Treason, reports that Fish's office clerk, George Hill, was arrested and charged by authorities of being an agent of the Nazis. Well before Martin Dies took the reins, Congressman Fish conducted the first full-blown federal "investigation of Communism." widely known as the House Un-American Activities Committee (HUAC) hearings. Between the pair of hooting panels came the McCormack-Dickstein Committee, formed in 1934 to stamp out Nazi propaganda in the United States. The committee unearthed "a fascist plot to seize the government." Shortly thereafter, HUAC was disbanded and its successor turned a deaf ear to any mention of fascist coups.

In The Yahoos (Marzani and Munsell, 1964), a study of Aryan Nations-type groups in America, author Mike Newberry provides the backgrounds of HUAC investigators:

EDWARD SULLIVAN, HUAC's first "Chief Investigator," a man with a record of nine arrests [from sodomy to larceny], was co-editor with James ["Kike Killer"] True's hate sheet, addressed German-American Bund rallies prior to his concern with "un-Americanism," and was director of an admittedly fascistic Ukrainian group.

Dr. J.B. MATTHEWS, HUAC's second "Chief Investigator," declared in his autobiography: "America's answer to Communism will be fascism, or something so closely akin to it that the difference will not greatly matter." His autobiography was published by a veteran anti-Semite, John Cecil. His writings were reprinted by the "Contra-Komintern," the official organ of the Nazi Foreign Office. At present, he is a close advisor of Robert Welch of the John Birch Society.

DR. FRED SCHWARTZ, currently one of HUAC's most favored "experts," is head of the Christian Anti-Communist Crusade.

FULTON LEWIS, III, leader of the Young Americans for Freedom, earned his spurs on the HUAC staff. [He] wrote for the anti-Semitic American Mercury, then under the editorship of Harold Lord Varney, a former paid propagandist of the Italian Fascisti.


Mrs. Nixon's Conservative Cloth Coat & Walt Disney's Nazi

"When it is necessary to kill an enemy, it is also necessary to leave a good impression for other enemies to see. The dead body did not care whether it had a head or not, but psychologically the individual faced with such a sight can see himself in the same decapitated condition and the heart is filled with terror. Therefore,such a principle should be adopted by guerillas for just such a reason. Not that we need a trophy, but that we might terrorize the invading enemy ["Godless" communists], always leaving bodies with some mark which would be universally understood by the guerilla fighting force."

- Liberty Lobby Pamphlet, 1962

The propagandists at CIA's House of Secrets proceeded to mold collective opinion with heavy hands. The infiltration of the media and the spread of disinformation would cost taxpayers $90 million a year by 1978, according to university of Paris economist Sean Gervasi. The CIA's assimilation of old guard Nazis was overseen by the CIA's Operations coordination board, directed by C.D. Jackson, a former executive of Time magazine and Dwight Eisenhower's "special assistant for cold war strategy."

In 1954, Jackson was succeeded by Nelson Rockefeller. Rocky quit a year later, repulsed, he said, by the administration's political infighting. Vice President Nixon succeeded Rockefeller as the country's key cold war strategist."

"Nixon," writes John Loftus, at one time an attorney for the Justice Department's Office of Special Investigations, took "a small boy's delight in the arcane tools of the intelligence craft - the hidden microphones, the 'black' propaganda." Nixon especially enjoyed his visit to a Virginia training camp to observe Nazis in the "special forces" learning the arts of "spycraft" he so admired.

One of the fugitives recruited by the American intelligence establishment was heroin smuggler Hubert von BlŸcher, the son of a German ambassador. Hubert often bragged that he'd been trained by the Abwehr, the German military intelligence division, while still a civilian in his twenties. He served in a reconaissance unit of the German Army's 2nd Battallion until forced out for medical reasons in 1944, according to his wartime records. He worked briefly as an assistant director for Berlin Film on a movie entitled One Day ..., and finished out the war flying with the Luftwaffe - not to engage the enemy, but to smuggle Nazi gold bullion out of the country. In 1948, he flew the coop to Argentina. Posing as a photographer, now named Huberto von Bleucher Corell, he immediately paid court to Eva Peron, presenting her with an invaluable Gobelin tapestry (doubtless a sample from the wealth of artifacts confiscated by SS from their prey).

Hubert then met with Martin Bormann at Argentina's Hotel Plaza and handed over German marks worth $80 million. He later told investigators that the loot financed the formation of the National Socialist Party in Argentina. Three years later Hubert migrated to El Norte. The Nazi landed a position with the Color Corporation of America in California, and eked out a living writing scripts for Hollywood's thriving movie industry. His voice graces a film set in the Amazon, produced by Walt Disney. In 1951 he returned to Buenos Aires, then DŸsseldorf, West Germany. He established a firm that developed not movie scripts, but anti-chemo-warfare agents for the German government.

At the posh Industrie Club in Dusseldorf in 1982, Von Blucher crowed to journalists, "I am chief shareholder of Pan American Airways. I am the best friend of Howard Hughes. The Beach Hotel in Las Vegas is 45 percent financed by me. I am thus the biggest financier ever to appear in the Arabian Nights tales dreamed up by these people over their second bottle of brandy."


General Wedemeyer's Ultraconservative, Lonely-Hearts Club Bund & Dr. Becher's Beltway Brotherhood

"If the military is infected with this virus of right-wing radicalism, the danger is worthy of attention." - Senator J.W. Fulbright

Had the government slapped an embargo on I.Qs? The fascist war machine had been pounded to scrap in Europe and Japan, only to resurface in San Antonio, Texas ... and the American proletariet greased the gears. The 1961 "Let's Look at America" seminar, sponsored by the Fourth Army and the San Antonio Chamber of Commerce Jaycees, drew a crowd of 3,500 strong. Retired General Alfred Wedemeyer, a supporter of the John Birch Society, railed at President Kennedy's "appeasement" of the Soviet Union. Cleon Skousen, formerly an FBI agent and a ramrod of the Christian Anti-Communist Crusade, demanded the end of all diplomatic relations with the Eastern Bloc. Dr. Gerhart Niemeyer, a writer for the National Review, spoke at the event. So did Senator Strom Thurmond and Donald Jackson of HUAC.

The "seminar" violated the direct orders of then Secretary of the Army Elvis Stahat - a "violation of Army policy," Stahat warned. Unmoved by orders from the Pentagon, Colonel William Blythe of the Fourth Army's G-2 Division went insubordinate: "We are not interested in politics," he shot back. "The Army intends to stand up and be counted!"

General Wedemeyer flew from the San Antonio session to Dallas, where he met with oil baron H.L. Hunt, one of Joseph McCarthy's most beneficient financial sponsors (Borger, Texas News Herald on September 25, 1961).

A platoon of military personalities threw in with a host of American fascist front organizations, figureheads for the domestic cause, among them:

Generals Nathan Twining, J.B. Medaris, Rear Admiral Chester Ward and Admiral Radford - The Military-Industrial Institute.

Admiral Arleigh Burke - Featured speaker of the Christian Anti-Communist Crusade.

General Charles Willoughby and General Peyton Campbell - Christian Anti- Communist Crusade.

General Stratemeyer - Liberty Lobby, Christian Crusade.

General Bonner Fellers - Endorsed the Birch Society and Americans for Constitutional Action.

Admiral Strauss and General Wedemeyer- National Advisory Board, Young Americans for Freedom. And so on, a platoon of others who joined forces with hooting ultracons and Aryan Nationals alike. While ranking military officials raised the rabble against Soviet "expansionism," the Nazis sought influence in Washington, D.C. One of the most influential Nazi spies in the U.S. was Dr. Walter Becher, an anti-Communist "refugee leader" from the Hitler regime. Becher joined the Nazi Party in December, 1931, and became an editor of Die Zeit, a Nazi propaganda sheet in 1937. He was a Brown-Shirt for a spell and a member of the National Socialist Student Bund. He editorialized for the purge of all Jews from state-owned radio in Prague. During the war, Becher worked in the Goebbels Propaganda Ministry and for the Wehrmacht as a war correspondent. Soon after the war, he founded a newspaper in Germany that agitated for the restoration of National Socialism. Becher had his advocates in Washington, D.C. In 1957, Congressman Usher Burdick inserted one of Dr. Becher's propaganda pieces in the Congressional Record, and in August 1959, seven more appeared in the pages of the Record. When he junketed to the States, conferences were arranged for him by the State Department. His geopolitical opinions were trumpeted by scores of newspapers and the Mutual Broadcasting Network's 600 affiliates.

Dr. Becher's early contacts in Washington were McCarthy and William Jenner in the Senate, and a handful of congressmen in the House. T.H. Tetens in The New Germany and the Old Nazis, was awed by the Nazi's camaraderie with Beltway politicians, and tracked his movements through the District of Columbia: "During the early fifties, when he first came to Washington, he began to build for himself a formidable political machine. His scheme was very simple. If he could obtain the support of leading politicians in the United States, his prestige and stature would grow enormously at home.... With the help of the McCarthy faction in the United States, he could establish a nationwide reputation as the foremost leader of the anti-Communist crusade." Among the senators who sent personal letters of support to Dr. Becher in Munich in the 1950s: Prescott Bush, Albert Gore, Pat McNamara, William Knowland, Strom Thurmond, Thomas Dodd, Robert Byrd, William Langer and Stuart Symington. House Speaker John McCormack also offered his unblushing public support to the Nazi editor.


Willis Carto & Charles Willoughby/Weidenbach: American Quislings for "Freedom"

Ultraconservatives place rhetorical emphasis on "character," a quality all too often absent within their own ranks. An oracal of the militias, Willis A. Carto, is the publisher of Spotlight, a populist newspaper that backed Patrick Buchanon for president and has attempted, since its inception, to emasculate the United Nations. Carto was the protege of Francis Parker Yocky, indicted for sedition during WW II. Yocky's indictment included charges of generously supporting the Nazi Party under Hitler. Carto's organization was one of five "Liberty Lobbies" founded in 1957 at the first WACL conference in Mexico City. The faction known today as the Liberty Lobby was originally run by a steering committee of rad Right leaders, among them:

Major Gen. Charles A. Willoughby - real name: Adolf Tscheppe Weidenbach, born in Heidelberg, Germany in 1892, a Nazi agent in the Army Supreme Command; Army Intelligence chief under Douglas MacArthur in Korea; "security director" of the Shickshinny Knights of Malta. Willis A. Carto - Treasurer and founder. Major General Edwin A. Walker - US Army, John Birch Society. Lt. Col. Philip Corso (ret) - US Army Intelligence under Willoughby/Weidenbach. Robert Morris - Birch Society, American Security Council (ASC), Young Americans for Freedom. Senator Strom Thurmond (D-S.C.) - Since, a "defector to the Republican Party, still a Senator at the age of 94. Otto Etepka - Director of Security Evaluations, State Department. Senator James O. Eastland (D-Miss.) - Director of internal security in the U.S. Senate.

A profusion of bridges were erected by the Liberty Lobby to German Nazis. Edwin Walker, who once stated in a radio interview that "[Jack] Ruby's name was Rubenstein," was the coeval of Gerhard Frey, publisher of the Neo-Nazi Deutsche National-Zeitung und Soldaten-Zeitung. A bosom ally of Maj. Gen Willoughby/Weidenbach, Theodor Oberlander, was the German commander of the Ukraine's Nightingales during the war and wrote for Frey's newspaper.

Dick Russell, in The Man Who Knew Too Much, drew connections between the Munich-based Reinhard Gehlen apparatus under the CIA's Allen Dulles and assorted WACL "Lobbies" under Willoughby:

"German veterans were included, notably Fritz Kramer [another German agent, Kramer ran the Plans Division of the DoD during the Vietnam War; his son Sven served in the National Security Council under Reagan] - a former Nazi Abwehr officer who then headed up a private vigilante group that ferreted out German Leftists at the behest of private industry. Its U.S. sister organization was the American Security Council (ASC), a private Washington group set up in 1955 by ex-FBI agents that built an index of over one million alleged 'subversives' for major corporations seeking security checks. Willoughby, a friend of Fritz Kramer, eventually sat on the ASC's board."

Researcher William McLoughlin, in a samizdat monograph on Willoughby/Weidenbach (available from Prevailing Winds Research in Santa Barbara), notes that MacArthur's Nordic intelligence chief engaged in a lifetime of acts designed "with the direct intention of facilitating the success of [the] Fourth Reich. The most frightening thing to consider is that he almost succeeded in his intentions on several different occasions. It is my contention that Charles [Adolf] Willoughby [Weidenbach] will eventually be remembered as one of the most prolific mass murderers in the history of mankind, behind only Joseph Stalin and Adolf Hitler." McLoughlin cites "the surprise attack on Pearl Harbor on December 7, 1941 and the ensuing follow-up attack on the U.S. Far Eastern command in the Philippines. Both of these events were under the aegis of MacArthur and Willoughby as head of intelligence for the Far Eastern Command, at that time. Even after he was told of the occurrence of the Pearl Harbor attack, Willoughby declined to suggest a search of the Pacific rim for the Japanese carriers supporting the surprise attack and instead opted for leaving the US Army's entire air strike capability sitting on the tarmac in the Philippines in closely clustered groups, which made them easy targets for the Japanese Zeroes ten hours later."

Brainwashing, Coercion and Mind Control Revisited...

By Judson Rainey on January 20th, 2009 at 6:00 pm

Excerpt from Science of Coercion: Communication Research and Psychological Warfare, 1945-1960 by Christopher Simpson (New York: Oxford University Press, 1996 paperback), pp. 48-51:

Scholars Perfect Psychological Warfare Techniques

by Christopher Simpson

The third expression of psychological warfare themes in Public Opinion Quarterly and similar academic literature during the first years after World War II can be seen in the unusually close liaison that some of the journal’s authors and editors maintained with clandestine psychological warfare projects at the CIA, the armed services, and the Department of State. This can be found in both manifest and veiled form in many articles appearing in the journal, and in the composition of POQ’s editorial board. Hans Speier’s emergence as a prominent “private” advocate of expanded psychological warfare shortly after his work with Frank Wisner at the Occupied Areas Division at the State Department, discussed previously, is one example of an informal link between a prominent POQ author and the government’s clandestine warfare programs.

This phenomenon became considerably more widespread, however, though rarely easy to identify. A good example of latent linkages can be seen in Frederick W. Williams’ 1945 article “Regional Attitudes on International Cooperation.”31 On a manifest level, Williams’ study simply reports data gathered by the American Institute of Public Opinion and the Office of Public Opinion Research at Princeton during the winter of 1944-45 concerning popular attitudes on the U.S. role in international affairs, broken out by geographic region of the country. Williams uses the data to strongly advocate “making the United States more international-minded,” as POQ described it.32

In the decades since the article first appeared, it has become clear that Williams’ data had been collected in an ongoing clandestine intelligence program underwritten by Listerine heir Gerard Lambert on behalf of the Roosevelt administration. The U.S. Congress had in those years barred the expenditure of government funds on most types of attitude surveys of U.S. voters, arguing that it was the Congress’ job under the Constitution to represent “public opinion.” Congress’ concern was in part political, because FDR used rival sources of information on public opinion to advance controversial policies, not least of which was the president’s drive toward an “internationalist” foreign policy. Despite the congressional strictures, the White House hired Hadley Cantril and Lloyd Free for “government intelligence work,” as Jean Converse puts it, including clandestine intelligence collection abroad and public opinion surveys in the United States. Cantril and Free in turn engaged Frederick Williams and the American Institute of Public Opinion as field staff for research on behalf of the administration.33

Meanwhile, Public Opinion Quarterly’s board of editors included a substantial number of men who were deeply involved in U.S. government psychological warfare research or operations, several of whom were largely dependent on government funding for their livelihood. The journal’s editorial advisory board during the late 1940s, for example, was made up of twenty-five to thirty individuals noted for their contributions to public opinion studies and mass communication research. Among those on the board with readily identifiable dependencies on government psychological warfare contracting were Hadley Cantril, Harold Lasswell, Paul Lazarsfeld, and Rensis Likert, whose role as government contractors are documented in Chapters 5, 6, 7, and 8 of this study. They were joined on the POQ board by DeWitt Poole, who later became president of the CIA’s largest single propaganda effort of the era, the National Committee for a Free Europe.34 Another prominent board member was CBS executive Frank Stanton, also a longtime director of both Radio Free Europe and the Free Europe Fund, a CIA-financed organization established to conduct political advertising campaigns in the United States and to launder CIA funds destined for Poole’s National Committee for a Free Europe.35 The journal’s editor during 1946 and 1947 was Lloyd Free, a wartime secret agent on behalf of the Roosevelt administration who some years later was destined to share a million-dollar CIA research grant with Hadley Cantril.36

This pattern appears to have been repeated at several other important academic journals of sociology and social psychology of the era, although quantitative studies of their content remain to be done. The American Sociological Review (ASR), published by the American Sociological Society, overlapped so frequently in its officers and editorial panels with those of Public Opinion Quarterly and its publisher, the American Association for Public Opinion Research, that board members sometimes joked that they were unsure which meetings they were attending.37 While ASR published articles about a considerably broader range of sociological subjects than did POQ, the ASR articles and book reviews concerning communication remained confined to a group of fewer than a dozen authors who were simultaneously the dominant voices in POQ. The range of views concerning communication and its role in society remained similarly circumscribed.

Further, an informal comparison of articles published during the 1950s concerning mass communication and public opinion in POQ and the prestigious American Journal of Sociology (AJS) shows that its articles in this field were just as rooted in psychological warfare contracts as were those appearing in POQ. The 1949-50 volume of AJS, for example, featured eight articles on various aspects of mass communication and public opinion. At least four of these stemmed directly or indirectly from ongoing psychological warfare projects, including work by Hans Speier and Herbert Goldhamer (both of RAND Corp.), Samuel Stouffer (from the American Soldier project), and Leo Lowenthal (then the director of research for the Voice of America, whose political odyssey is discussed in Chapter 6).38

In sum, the data show that Public Opinion Quarterly — and perhaps other contemporary academic journals as well — exhibited at least three important characteristics that linked the publication with the U.S. government’s psychological warfare effort during the first decade after World War II. First, POQ became an important advocate for U.S. propaganda and psychological warfare projects of the period, frequently publishing case studies, research reports, and polemics in favor of expanded psychological operations. Second and more subtly, many POQ articles articulated U.S. propaganda themes on topics other than psychological warfare itself. Examples include the magazine’s editorial line on U.S.-Soviet relations and on the Italian election of 1948.

Finally, data suggest that some members of the journal’s editorial board and certain of the authors maintained an unusually close liaison with the clandestine propaganda and intelligence operations of the day. The traces of these relationships can be found in several articles mentioned in this chapter and in the composition of POQ’s editorial board, at least one member of which — POQ’s founder DeWitt Poole — was a full-time executive of a major propaganda project organized and financed by the CIA.

This influence over the editorial board and editorial content of the field’s most prestigious academic journal was only a symptom of a deeper and more organic bond that is discussed in the next chapter. Money became one of the most important links between the emerging field of mass communication studies and U.S. military, intelligence, and propaganda agencies. Precise economic figures cannot be determined because of the lack of consistent reporting from the government, the continued classification of some projects, and the loss of data over the years. Even so, the overall trend is clear.

“The primary nexus between government and social science is an economic one,” write Albert Biderman and Elisabeth Crawford of the Bureau of Social Science Research. It is “so pervasive as to make any crisis of relations with the government a crisis for social science as a whole.”39

Communist psychological warfare is now winning such extensive victories in the United States that the Red bloc will not need to employ direct military force against us in order to win the total war, which they are waging, with this country the principal target. Edward Hunter, American expert on Communist brainwashing, warned in a consultation with the staff of the Committee on Un-American Activities.

Mr. Hunter, whose career as a foreign correspondent, author, editor, world traveler, and specialist in propaganda warfare, qualifies him as an authority on Communist propaganda techniques, stated:

“I spent 30 years, a little bit more perhaps, in countries under various forms of Communist pressure and attack. What I am witnessing in America is no different from what I saw in those other countries. I am often referred to as someone who has made phenomenal predictions that proved correct on things to come. Actually, I have never made a prediction as such in my life. I have only predicted in the manner that one predicts the total of 4 after seeing the figures 2 plus 2.

“I have been watching developments under communism in other parts of the world, and now I see exactly the same developments here in America.”

These developments, he continued, “include, first of all, the penetration of our leadership circles by a softening up and creating a defeatist state of mind. This includes penetration of our educational circles by a similar state of mind, in addition to one other thing—the long-range perspective of the professor who is above anything that is happening here and now, and considers himself as an objective spectator in a long, long vista of history.

“I see, primarily, as part of this softening up process in America, the liquidation of our attitudes on what we used to recognize as right and wrong, what we used to accept as absolute moral standards. We now confuse moral standards with the sophistication of dialectical materialism, with a Communist crackpot Communist crackpot theology which teaches that everything changes, and that what is right or wrong, good or bad, changes as well. So nothing they say is really good or bad. There is no such thing as truth or a lie; and any belief we actually held was simply your being unsophisticated. They don’t say this in so many words, except to those who are already indoctrinated in communism.

“What they do say to the rest of us is to be objective; and then they twist that word ‘objective’ into meaning what they mean by dialectical materialism.”

“War has changed its form,” Mr. Hunter declared. “The Communists have discovered that a man killed by a bullet is useless. He can dig no coal. They have discovered that a demolished city is useless. Its mills produce no cloth. The objective of Communist warfare is to capture intact the minds of the people and their possessions, so they can be put to use. This is the modern conception of slavery that puts all the others in the kindergarten age.

“The United States is the main battlefield in this Red war. I mean specifically the people and the soil and the resources of the United States.

“It should be obvious to anyone who has observed the so-called cold war that the United States is its principal target. We need only read what the Communists themselves say, but we refuse to do so, exactly as we could not believe that Hitler meant what he said in Mein Kampf.

“The first battles in this total war have already been won by the forces of international communism in the United States. These victories are identical to those they have won in every country which they have ultimately taken over. They have succeeded in softening up a large element of the American population, particularly among those to whom we look for guidance, our so-called intellectuals and our so-called liberal circles. They have succeeded in making the United States think and talk of a coexistence period, as if that were an end in itself; while in other parts of the world, as in India, the Reds frankly explain that this coexistence is merely intended to give the Americans an easy way to choose their road toward communism.

“This is strategy. The Kremlin is merely giving the United States a choice in surrendering by voluntary change of attitude, to avoid more destructive ways of surrender. Unfortunately, in the United States, large elements, mainly among our non-Communist population, have been softened up into believing that if we can just stall on this situation, it will take care of itself. The Reds have succeeded in inducing business communities to look to Soviet trade as a means of restoring prosperity. Large business elements, with all their financial and other resources, are now being used to help the Communist objective of softening up America for recognition and acceptance of Red China, for instance.”

The Communists are being abetted in their brainwashing program in the United States, Mr. Hunter declared, by the collapse of traditional American ideals of self-reliance and individual integrity.

“The Communists have been in operation for a full generation, taking strategic advantage of the American principles, exploiting the best sides in our characters as vulnerabilities, and succeeding for a generation in changing the characteristics of Americans. I remember when I was a young man, every personnel department was looking for leadership qualities. What was sought was a man’s capacity as an individual to achieve new things. Today that is not even considered by personnel departments in their employment policies. They ask, instead, if the man ‘gets along’ with everybody. They do not ask what is his individuality; they ask how he conforms. When we raise a young man to believe that at all costs he must get on with everyone, we have put him into a state of mind that almost guarantees, if he falls into the hands of an enemy such as the Communists, that he will react as he had been raised, to try ‘to get on,’ because he must not be ‘antisocial.’

“Being ‘antisocial’ has become the cardinal sin in our society. We have to again go back to characteristics of ours which made us, as individuals, say that what is right is right, and whether or not it is antisocial, makes no difference. The young man who broadcast for the Red Chinese was simply ‘getting along’ as he had been taught to do by our educators.”

As an example of the success the Communists are achieving, Mr. Hunter cited statistics on American prisoners of war in Korea.

“Never before in history had so many captured Americans gone to the aid of the enemy. John McCain?

“For 2 years the services studied the records of the prisoners. What they found was not pretty.

Chapter 14

“A total of 7,190 Americans were captured. Of these, 6,656 were Army troops, 263 were airmen, 231 Marines, 40 Navy men.

“In every war in American history some men have managed to escape. Korea was the exception.

“Roughly 1 of every 3 American prisoners collaborated with the Communists in some way, either as informants or as propagandists.

“In the 20 prison camps, 2, 730 of the 7,190 Americans died, the highest morality rate among prisoners in United States history. Many of them died unnecessarily. They either did not know how to take care of themselves of they just lay down and quit. Some sick or wounded died of malnutrition abandoned by their comrades.

“Discipline among Americans was almost nonexistent. It was a case of dog eat dog for food, cigarettes, blankets, clothes.

“For the first time in history, Americans — 21 of them — swallowed the enemy’s propaganda line and declined to return to their own people.”

Mr. Hunter declared that in the struggle with the Soviet Union, “we are losing so fast that unless we put a very drastic end to it, the question of who is winning will be academic in a decade.”

“People at lectures and elsewhere,” he declared, “frequently ask that of me, as if begging me to say that we are winning. I wish I could, but one only has to think of the position of the United States at the end of the war and compare it to now. We only have to look at the map of the world as it was when signed the peace on the battleship Missouri and compare it to the map now. Great areas with enormous populations have fallen into the hands of the Reds, not through any approximation to the democratic process, but through sheer power pressures, by psychological warfare.”

Even an ultimate superiority in military weapons may not be sufficient to guarantee the survival of the United States, Mr. Hunter cautioned.

“In Korea, we had atomic weapons, but lost the war and were unable to use those weapons because of a political and psychological climate created by the Communists. The Kremlin today is fighting total war, and this means total, not with weapons of physical destruction alone, but mental destruction, too. The new weapons are for conquest intact, of peoples and cities. The future Pearl Harbor sputnik will be used if the situation demands it. But not unless the Kremlin has first succeeded in conquering the character and minds of a large enough element of the American people so that it will be fitting itself into the desires and needs of the Communist apparatus, no matter whether they think of themselves as Red or anti-Communist.”

Mr. Hunter continued: “The most deadly misconception of all, that requires a softening up in our thinking before we can make it, is the idea that there are different kinds of communism, and that besides international communism there is something called national communism, which fundamentally differs. There is nothing of the sort. We are again interpreting, on the basis of wishful thinking, what the Communists themselves are plainly saying. We base this national communism conception on Titoism. Tito at no time disowned or expressed doubt in any of the fundamental tenets of communism, and he is today expending all the time he can in trying to tell the world that he believes in communism, intends Communist objectives to win out in the long run all over the world. Communism in this, too, has been able, as always, to get the help it needs from the non-Communist and principally the anti-Communist world.

“Each time there has been a crisis in Soviet Russia, it could depend on the outside world for help. Today, under the theory that there are different forms of communism, and some Communist forms are not really Communist, or are less Communist than others, we are giving through aid programs and such propaganda assists as so-called exchange scholarships, the help and sustenance that these Communist countries require to survive. I have heard that under certain technical requirements of the law, completely fantastic statements have come from the White House and the State Department that communism in Yugoslavia really isn’t communism any more, and that communism in Poland is not real communism. I thought we had learned our lesson in China. We said that the communism of China, the communism of Mao Tse-tung was not really communism. We said it was not the communism of Moscow. Mao Tse-tung was saying it was the same communism, exactly as Tito says that the Communist ideology is basically the same everywhere, and that the objective for a Communist world is identical.”



Tuesday, March 13, 1958

United States House of Representatives,

Committee on Un-American Activities

Washington, D. C.


The following consultation with Edward Hunter, author and foreign correspondent, was held at 10 a.m., March 13, 1958, in room 226, Old House Office Building, Washington, D. C., pursuant to the authorization of the Committee on Un-American Activities composed of:

Francis E. Walter, Pennsylvania, Chairman

Morgan M. Moulder, Missouri Bernard W. Kearney, New York

Clyde Doyle, California Donald L. Jackson, California

Edwin E. Willis, Louisiana Gordon H. Scherer, Ohio

William M. Tuck, Virginia Robert J. McIntosh, Michigan

Staff members present: Richard Arens, staff director, and William F. Heimlich, consultant.

MR. ARENS: The session today is the first in a series of consultations on the subject of the Communist psychological warfare which the Committee on Un-American Activities has inaugurated.

We are pleased to welcome to the consultation today Mr. Edward Hunter, whose distinguished career as foreign correspondent, author, editor, world traveler, and specialist in psychological warfare eminently qualifies him to speak authoritatively on the subject at hand.

MR. ARENS: How would you characterize the Communist Party in the United States?

MR. HUNTER: It is superficially a joke; but behind the façade are the real Communist operators. They know exactly what they are doing, and they adapt exactly what they are doing to the requirements and strategy of world communism. The Communist Party of America is simply one of the fingers on the two hands of world communism, and operates just as obediently to the mind of communism.

We are again engaging in doubletalk when we talk of the Communist “Party.” There is no such thing as a Communist Party, if by party we mean what our dictionaries call a party. It is a communist conspiracy, a Communist psychological warfare organization. The Communists derive their strength in America from their unity with world communism, and from their ability both in clandestine and overt circles to pull the strings for the non-Communists alone. Communists have never been able to achieve anything without a front. The communism that wins is always the communism that makes the non-Communist its ally; by non-Communist I don’t necessarily mean fellow travelers. I mean non-Communists who allow themselves to be trapped by Communist strategy. We see that operating today in official and business circles, which are essentially anti-Communist.

The business circles that do so have the false hope that there will be tremendous trade available, that the entire automobile industry of America will find great new markets in Red China, and that two families of nations, Communist and non-communist, can work together. That is merely a restoration under different terminology of what was so disastrous to us at the end of World War II when we were told that Mao Tse-tung and the Communists of China were not really Communists, but only agrarian reformers, sort of Chinese New Dealers, who thought and reacted the same as we.

MR. ARENS: On the basis of your background and experience, please tell us what part of this total warfare is psychological?

MR. HUNTER: Since man began, he has tried to influence other men or women to his way of thinking. There have always been these forms of pressure to change attitudes. Atrocities were the simplest changes through which people were forced in the old days to change their minds. Often they didn’t change their minds, but acted as if they did, which had the same result, and, as time went on, the new thoughts often actually came to be believed. There has been a remarkable difference developing in the last 30 years or so, which makes this as different from modern psychological warfare as the airplane is from the canon; it merely brings a shell a longer distance before dropping it somewhere. That is sheer sophism. The moment we discovered how to rise and remain above the earth, we had achieved something fundamentally new. It was no longer a cannon. It was an airplane. The same is true with modern psychological warfare. We discovered in the past 30 years a technique to influence, by clinical, hospital procedures, the thinking processes of human beings.

(The basis for the modern psychological warfare, which makes it different from whatever was done in the past, are the findings of the Russian physiologist, Pavlov. He is not a Communist. He had completed his most important discoveries before the Communists took power. His first discovery was the effectiveness of using a living animal in experiments, rather than a dead animal. His second great discovery was that the instincts of an animal, that we call reflexes, were of two kinds. One was the reflexes which the animal was born with, its unconditioned reflexes. The other was its conditioned reflexes, which man can train into the animal. Most of us have heard of Pavlov’s experiments with dogs and lights. He first provided a bowl of food and turned on a light of a certain color, then an empty bowl and turned on a different colored light. After he had done this a number of times, he turned on the light that accompanied the food, but presented an empty bowl to the animal, and the dog deposited just as much saliva as when the bowl was full. When he presented a bowlful of food with the wrong light, the animal did not eat. After he switched the lights and bowls of food, the animal became neurotic, barked, was driven into a state, which among human beings we call insanity.) —————————————————————————————————————————————–

When the Communist hierarchy in Moscow discovered that it was unable to persuade people willingly to follow communism, when they found that they could not create what they wanted, the “new Soviet man” in which human nature would be changed, they turned to Pavlov and his experiments. They considered people the same as animals anyway, and refused to recognize the role of reason or divinity in a human being. They took over the Pavlovian experiments on animals and extended them to people. They did so with the objective of changing human nature and creating a “new Soviet man.” People, they anticipated, would react voluntarily under Pavlovian pressures, in the way the dog does, to Communist orders, exactly as ants do in their collectivized society.

The Alien Registration Act passed by Congress on 29th June, 1940, made it illegal for anyone in the United States to advocate, abet, or teach the desirability of overthrowing the government. The law also required all alien residents in the United States over 14 years of age to file a comprehensive statement of their personal and occupational status and a record of their political beliefs. Within four months a total of 4,741,971 aliens had been registered.

The main objective of the Alien Registration Act was to undermine the American Communist Party and other left-wing political groups in the United States. It was decided that the House of Un-American Activities Committee (HUAC), that had been set up by Congress under Martin Dies in 1938 to investigate people suspected of Nazi sympathic, unpatriotic behavior, would be the best vehicle to discover if people were trying to overthrow the government.

In 1947 the House of Un-American Activities Committee (HUAC), chaired by J. Parnell Thomas, began an investigation into the Hollywood Motion Picture Industry. The HUAC interviewed 41 people who were working in Hollywood. These people attended voluntarily and became known as “friendly witnesses”. During their interviews they named nineteen people who they accused of holding left-wing views.

One of those named, Bertolt Brecht, a playwright, gave evidence and then left for East Germany. Ten others: Herbert Biberman, Lester Cole, Albert Maltz, Adrian Scott, Samuel Ornitz,, Dalton Trumbo, Edward Dmytryk, Ring Lardner Jr., John Howard Lawson and Alvah Bessie refused to answer any questions.

Known as the Hollywood Ten, they claimed that the 1st Amendment of the United States Constitution gave them the right to do this. The House of Un-American Activities Committee and the courts during appeals disagreed and they all were found guilty of contempt of congress and each was sentenced to between six and twelve months in prison.

Larry Parks was the only actor in the original nineteen people named. He was also the only person on the list who the average moviegoer would have known. Parks agreed to give evidence to the HUAC and admitted that he had joined the Communist Party in 1941 but left it four years later. When asked for the names of fellow members, Parks replied: “I would prefer, if you would allow me, not to mention other people’s names. Don’t present me with the choice of either being in contempt of this Committee and going to jail or forcing me to really crawl through the mud to be an informer.”

The House of Un-American Activities Committee insisted that Parks answered all the questions asked. The HUAC had a private session and two days later it was leaked to the newspapers that Parks had named names. Leo Townsend, Isobel Lennart, Roy Huggins, Richard Collins, Lee J. Cobb, Budd Schulberg and Elia Kazan, afraid they would go to prison, were also willing to name people who had been members of left-wing groups.

In June, 1950, three former FBI agents and a right-wing television producer, Vincent Harnett, published Red Channels, a pamphlet listing the names of 151 writers, directors and performers who they claimed had been members of subversive organisations before the Second World War but had not so far been blacklisted. The names had been compiled from FBI files and a detailed analysis of the Daily Worker, a newspaper published by the American Communist Party.

A free copy of Red Channels was sent to those involved in employing people in the entertainment industry. All those people named in the pamphlet were blacklisted until they appeared in front of the House of Un-American Activities Committee (HUAC) and convinced its members they had completely renounced their radical past.

Edward Dmytryk, one of the original Hollywood Ten, had financial problems as a result of divorcing his wife. Faced with having to sell his plane and encouraged by his new wife, Dmytryk decided to try to get his name removed from the blacklist. On 25th April, 1951, Dmytryk appeared before the House of Un-American Activities Committee again. This time he answered all their questions including the naming of twenty-six former members of left-wing groups.

Dmytryk also revealed how people such as John Howard Lawson, Adrian Scott and Albert Maltz had put him under pressure to make sure his films expressed the views of the Communist Party. This was particularly damaging to those members of the original Hollywood Ten who were at that time involved in court cases with their previous employers.

If people refused to name names when called up to appear before the HUAC, they were added to a blacklist that had been drawn up by the Hollywood film studios. Over 320 people were placed on this list that stopped them from working in the entertainment industry. This included Larry Adler, Stella Adler, Leonard Bernstein, Marc Blitzstein, Joseph Bromberg, Charlie Chaplin, Aaron Copland, Hanns Eisler, Carl Foreman, John Garfield, Howard Da Silva, Dashiell Hammett, E. Y. Harburg, Lillian Hellman, Burl Ives, Arthur Miller, Dorothy Parker, Philip Loeb, Joseph Losey, Anne Revere, Pete Seeger, Gale Sondergaard, Louis Untermeyer, Josh White, Clifford Odets, Michael Wilson, Paul Jarrico, Jeff Corey, John Randolph, Canada Lee, Orson Welles, Paul Green, Sidney Kingsley, Paul Robeson, Richard Wright and Abraham Polonsky.

It was now decided to use the Alien Registration Act against the American Communist Party. Leaders of the party were arrested and in October, 1949, after a nine month trial, eleven members were convicted of violating the act. Over the next two years another 46 members were arrested and charged with advocating the overthrow of the government. Other high profile spy cases at the time involving Alger Hiss, Julius Rosenberg and Ethel Rosenberg, helped to create a deep fear in the United States that a communist conspiracy was taking place. ——————————————————————————————————————

On 9th February, 1950, Joseph McCarthy, a senator from Wisconsin, made a speech claiming to have a list of 57 people in the State Department known to be members of the American Communist Party. The list of names was not a secret and had been in fact published by the Secretary of State in 1946. These people had been identified during a preliminary screening of 3,000 federal employees. Some had been communists but others had been fascists, alcoholics and sexual deviants. If screened, McCarthy’s own drink problems and sexual preferences would have resulted in him being put on the list.

McCarthy also began receiving information from his friend, J. Edgar Hoover, head of the Federal Bureau of Investigation (FBI). William Sullivan, one of Hoover’s agents, later admitted that: “We were the ones who made the McCarthy hearings possible. We fed McCarthy all the material he was using.” ————————————————————————————————————

With the war going badly in Korea and communist advances in Eastern Europe and in China, the American public were genuinely frightened about the possibilities of internal subversion. McCarthy, was made chairman of the Government Committee on Operations of the Senate, and this gave him the opportunity to investigate the possibility of communist subversion.

For the next two years McCarthy’s committee investigated various government departments and questioned a large number of people about their political past. Some lost their jobs after they admitted they had been members of the Communist Party. McCarthy made it clear to the witnesses that the only way of showing that they had abandoned their left-wing views was by naming other members of the party.

This witch-hunt and anti-communist hysteria became known as McCarthyism. Some left-wing artists and intellectuals were unwilling to live in this type of society and people such as Joseph Losey, Richard Wright, Ollie Harrington, James Baldwin, Herbert Biberman, Lester Cole and Chester Himes went to live and work in Europe.

At first Joseph McCarthy mainly targeted Democrats associated with the New Deal policies of the 1930s. Harry S. Truman and members of his Democratic administration such as George Marshall and Dean Acheson, were accused of being soft on communism. Truman was portrayed as a dangerous liberal and McCarthy’s campaign helped the Republican candidate, Dwight Eisenhower, win the presidential election in 1952.

After what had happened to McCarthy’s opponents in the 1950 elections, most politicians were unwilling to criticize him in the Senate. As the Boston Post pointed out: “Attacking him is this state is regarded as a certain method of committing suicide.” One notable exception was William Benton, the owner of Encyclopaedia Britannica, and a senator from Connecticut. McCarthy and his supporters immediately began smearing Benton. It was claimed that while Assistant Secretary of State, he had protected known communists and that he had been responsible for the purchase and display of “lewd art works”. Benton, who was also accused of being disloyal by Joseph McCarthy for having much of his company’s work printed in England, was defeated in the 1952 elections.

In 1952 McCarthy appointed Roy Cohn as the chief counsel to the Government Committee on Operations of the Senate. Cohn had been recommended by J. Edgar Hoover, who had been impressed by his involvement in the prosecution of Julius Rosenberg and Ethel Rosenberg. Soon after Cohn was appointed, he recruited his best friend, David Schine, to become his chief consultant.

McCarthy’s next target was what he believed were anti-American books in libraries. His researchers looked into the Overseas Library Program and discovered 30,000 books by “communists, pro-communists, former communists and anti anti-communists.” After the publication of this list, these books were removed from the library shelves.

For some time opponents of Joseph McCarthy had been accumulating evidence concerning his homosexual activities. Several members of his staff, including Roy Cohn and David Schine, were also suspected of having a sexual relationship. Although well-known by political journalists, the first article about it did not appear until Hank Greenspun published an article in the Las Vagas Sun in 25th October, 1952. Greenspun wrote that: “It is common talk among homosexuals in Milwaukee who rendezvous in the White Horse Inn that Senator Joe McCarthy has often engaged in homosexual activities.”

Joseph McCarthy considered a libel suit against Greenspun but decided against it when he was told by his lawyers that if the case went ahead he would have to take the witness stand and answer questions about his sexuality. In an attempt to stop the rumours circulating, McCarthy married his secretary, Jeannie Kerr. Later the couple adopted a five-week old girl from the New York Foundling Home.

In October, 1953, McCarthy began investigating communist infiltration into the military. Attempts were made by McCarthy to discredit Robert Stevens, the Secretary of the Army. The president, Dwight Eisenhower, was furious and realised that it was time to bring an end to McCarthy’s activities.

The United States Army now passed information about Joseph McCarthy to journalists known to be opposed to him. This included the news that McCarthy and Roy Cohn had abused congressional privilege by trying to prevent David Schine from being drafted. When that failed, it was claimed that Cohn tried to pressurize the Army to grant Schine special privileges. The well-known newspaper columnist, Drew Pearson, published the story on 15th December, 1953.

Dwight Eisenhower also instructed his vice president, Richard Nixon, to attack Joseph McCarthy. On 4th March, 1954, Nixon made a speech where, although not mentioning McCarthy, made it clear who he was talking about: “Men who have in the past done effective work exposing Communists in this country have, by reckless talk and questionable methods, made themselves the issue rather than the cause they believe in so deeply.”

Some figures in the media, such as writers Freda Kirchway, George Seldes and I. F. Stone, and cartoonists, Herb Block and Daniel Fitzpatrick, had fought a long campaign against Joseph McCarthy. Other figures in the media, who had for a long time been opposed to McCarthyism but were frightened to speak out, now began to get the confidence to join the counter-attack. Edward Murrow, the experienced broadcaster, used his television programme, See It Now, on 9th March, 1954, to criticize McCarthy’s methods. Newspaper columnists such as Walter Lippmann and Jack Anderson also became more open in their attacks on McCarthy.

The senate investigations into the United States Army were televised and this helped to expose the tactics of Joseph McCarthy. One newspaper, the Louisville Courier-Journal, reported that: “In this long, degrading travesty of the democratic process McCarthy has shown himself to be evil and unmatched in malice.” Leading politicians in both parties, had been embarrassed by McCarthy’s performance and on 2nd December, 1954, a censure motion condemned his conduct by 67 votes to 22.

McCarthy lost the chairmanship of the Government Committee on Operations of the Senate. He was now without a power base and the media lost interest in his claims of a communist conspiracy. As one journalist, Willard Edwards, pointed out: “Most reporters just refused to file McCarthy stories. And most papers would not have printed them anyway.” Although some historians claim that this marked the end of McCarthyism, others argue that the anti-communist hysteria in the United States lasted until the end of the Cold War.

Just discovered this posting series on The American Security Council...started by John Dolva and there are some

very interesting items to consider posted there 2-3 years ago which led me to summarize some additional related factoids:


(1) Major Carleton S. Coon worked with Maj. Gen. Edwin A. Walker in Italy during World War II

(2) Carleton Coon's pistol was found at the scene of the Assassination of Admiral Darlan I believe according to Peter Tompkins (in his book) who was also from the OSS

(3) Theodore Oberlander, part of the ICDCC of Nelson Bunker Hunt, and a friend of Walker's led the Ukrainian Nightengale Division (Vonsiatsky was the number one Ukrainian Nazi of course)

(4) George Lincoln Rockwell, E. Howard Hunt and Anastase Vonsiatsky all attended Brown University together in the 1940's where they were all introudced to William F. Buckley, Jr.

(5) Larrie (Larry) Schmidt was also part of Dallas John Birch Society, ICDCC and was somehow involved with the "Wanted for Treason" poster in Dallas on 11/22/63

(6) Carleton Coon and Ulius S. Amoss originated the idea of political assassinations of foreign (or domestic) leaders using programmed assassins for the OSS and then the CIA

(7) The American Security Council leaders were Willoughby, Morris, Angleton and Ray S. Cline during the 1960's

ICDCC is the International Committee for the Defense of Christian Culture... a project of the Dallas Hunt family

This only confirms what I have come to believe about the ASC, the John Birch Society, the Pioneer Fund, WACL and those involved with MKULTRA and ManCand training

These people and groups were behind the Assassination of JFK.... No doubt about it anymore.

Stick a fork in it. It's done.

  • 3 months later...

The Winnipeg Airport incident overheard by Richard Giesbrecht...

Then when Charles Higham in American Swastica stated that Vonsiatsky had a nickname of "Annie" and when Condon

referenced Vonsiatsky in (shudder) and anagram and had another paragraph on his wife in ManCand, and when Prof. John Stephan confirmed all of these physical characters observed by Giesbrecht about the mystery man identified by me as Vonsiatsky:

(1) had his headquarters in Manchuria for decades and trained assassins to penetrate back into Russia

(2) "shaved his head bald" every year - sometimes causing razor burns on his scalp by his Providence barber

(3) had boils on the back of his neck in the 1940's which would obviously result in a "pock-marked" neck later

(4) wore a hearing aid in later life due to both cannon fussilades during the Russian Revolution and the firing of a Thompson sub-machine gun in his private shooting gallery in Thompson which had ceiling only 7 feet high as

personally observed by me in the 1990's in Putnam, Connecticut only 20 miles from my home (amazing)

(5) was well over 6 feet tall and weighed well over 200 pounds

(6) had blemishes and freckles on his hands which he hid in every single picure ever taken of him

(7) ...was born in Poland but lived in the Ukraine for most of his life after border changes were made

(8) usually wore very expensive and fashionable clothing like the light brown designer shoes and the tropical lightweight beige outfit he had on that day during the dead of winter in the Candadian tundra (He lived in both

Arizona and Florida and had a constant tan)

(9) had Richard Giesbrecht type very fine hair which was "sandy colored" as in yellowish-red like fine lanugo

(10) everyone spoke way too loud because of his deafness making it very easy for Giesbrecht to overhear the conversations... plus Gerald L K Smith spoke very loud because his speeches sometimes had no microphones

(11) His nickname was indeed "Annie", a term overheard at the Giesbrecht Incident

(12) and he had worked for Wickliffe Draper as a strike breaking goon in New England and as a publisher, too

living less than 25 miles from his Hopedale, MA home

...his guilt was established beyond a reasonable doubt. All of these characteristics were attributed by Giesbrecht

to the person with his back to him speaking with the Eastern European accent. All of them.


William Turner said you only need 5-7 descriptive items like those above to establish identity to a 99.5% level

and if you have a 12 for 12 score it is considered to be off the charts... Beyond a reasonable doubt.

Do you find this evidence convincing about Vonsiatsky? If not, why not?

Feedback appreciated... as long as it is logical and consistent.

Listen closely to Senator William Fulbright, author Richard Condon and President Eisenhower on the subject of JFKs Killers:

When I first picked up a copy of The Manchurian Candidate almost 25 years ago, which was written by Richard Condon in the late 1950s, I had only the vaguest of notions that it might have been intended by him to be somehow predictive of the actual upcoming assassination plots pending against John F. Kennedy at that time, which did not even succeed until almost 5 years AFTER the book was first completed. Now that we are approaching the 50th Anniversary of the Assassination of JFK and since Paramount Studios has remade the original movie based on Condon's book: The Manchurian Candidate, the time is quite ripe to revisit these topics and shed some light on both of these closely related mysteries. Professor Jerry Rose, wrote about the Orange County, California based plot against then Senator Kennedy called "The California Bombers" which was interruped shortly after Condon's book was published. See "The Fourth Decade" article published in the mid-1990's by Dr. Jerry Rose who was at that time a professor at Fredonia State College in Fredonia, New York. He cites just about the same list of like-minded kinsmen in that earlier assassination attempt against JFK. Kinsmen as Klansmen?

As a result of my analysis of 'The Manchurian Candidate' (the novel and the first movie) I have been able to identify the person who was Condon's model for 'The Manchurian Candidate', Czar Anastase A. Vonsiatsky, 'The Count from Killingly' in Connecticut near Putnam and Thompson, who served 5 years in the Springfield, MO Federal Penitentiary after being convicted for violations of the Alien and Sedition Act of 1917 by former FBI agent and Nuremburg prosecutor, and the eventual Senator from Connecticut, Thomas J. Dodd. Check out the FBI website where Vonsiatsky is featured as one of their Top 25 cases of the 20th Century. Vonsiatsky is also featured in 'The Russian Fascists' (Little, Brown 1979) by Professor John Stephan who is related to Max Stephan, the attorney for Rev. Gerald L. K. Smith who headed up the Nazi Silver Shirts based in Asheville, NC during World War II long after the onset of that war. William Dudley Pelley was one of the other founders and he too, was tried and convicted for his acts of espionage and support for the Axis powers during World War II. These people who joined together to murder JFK, will someday be recognized as the biggest villains and some of the most despicable miscreants of the entire 20th Century.

Suffice it to say that 'Czar' Anastase Vonsiatsky who had his anti-Soviet pro-Czarist headquarters in Harbin, Manchuria (known as Manchuoko under the Japanese occupation), was the biggest bastard of them all and perhaps the greatest unknown villain of the entire 20th Century along with Wickliffe Preston Draper who was from Hopedale, Massachusetts where he and his family originated the concept of 'The Company Town' which was emulated by the textile mill owners who depended on the Drapers to produce textile looming equipment from the late 1800's until 1967 when they sold their failing and doomed business to Rockwell-Standard, later Rockwell International for $100 million in Preferred Stock. Why did Rockwell bail out Wickliffe P. Draper when his company was nearly worthless? Let's see if you can figure it all out like I did. Draper and Vonsiatsky lived only about 20 miles apart for decades which is the rough distance between Hopedale, MA and Killingly, CT. Vonsiatsky was the penultimate 'White Russian' always trying to defeat the 'Red Russians' and bring down the Iron Curtain. Annie joined forces with Hitler to defeat the Communists and even dressed in a full Nazi uniform including a Swastika with a shaved skull, brown uniform and riding boots. He drove from Putnam, CT to Brown University in Providence, RI right down Route 44 in a 1936 Pierce-Arrow convertible dressed in full Nazi regalia to attend football games against Yale University. Vonsiatsky was a special student at Brown, studying English and was a classmate of both E. Howard Hunt of the CIA and another impressionable student at Brown named George Lincoln Rockwell, who later formed the American Nazi Party. Rockwell most certainly had to know E. Howard Hunt as well as Anastase Vonsiatsky and even William F. Buckley, Jr. who was the Godfather of E. Howard Hunt's children. Buckley is also mentioned in The Manchurian Candidate as "...that fascinating young man who wrote about Man and God at Yale" which is an exact quote from Richard Condon. Buckley wrote "Man and God at Yale" published by Henry Regnery Press. Henry Regnery's father, William Regnery, another cotton and textile millionaire, was another founder of The America First Committee along with Douglas Cady which sought to keep the U.S. out of the war against Germany. They even gave the legitimate Isolationists a bad name.

In this article I will attempt to retrace the steps taken in the ensuing years which have resulted in the identification of about a dozen of the persons referred to in The Manchurian Candidate either via direct reference when Condon named them, or indirectly as a result of Condon’s references to organizations which they founded or headed, or somewhat more obliquely, by Condon’s construction of deliberate word plays and sometimes convoluted anagrams referring to them indirectly if they were still alive and considered potentially threatening or harmful to him at that time.

I believe that Condon chose this method of coded messages and the use of cryptography because one of his main protagonists in the novel was none other than Dr. Revilo P. Oliver, who worked as a civilian Army cryptographer during World War II and was one of the founders of the John Birch Society. Oliver was not only a virulent racist and a Eugenicist in the mold of Wickliffe P. Draper, but he was also a staunch anti-Communist and McCarthy supporter, an anti-Semite and quite likely an avowed White Supremacist and a secret supporter and admirer of everything to do with Hitler and Nazism as well. Oliver’s list of Board Memberships included the “Patriotic anti-Communist and anti-Liberal” John Birch Society, the “White Supremacist” Church of the Creator and the “anti-Semitic” Institute for Historical Review. Dr. Oliver was an equal opportunity hater and a professional xenophobe. Many of the others cited in “The Manchurian Candidate” shared at least 3 and sometimes even more of Oliver’s xenophobic proclivities.

The first two organizations mentioned by Condon in his novel which started me on this odyssey were called “Ten Million Americans Mobilizing for Tomorrow” and “Defenders of American Liberties”. Both of them had closely named counterparts in the nether world of Patriotic right wing extremist organizations active at that time and their founders and Board of Directors were predominantly members of “The John Birch Society”, “The Pioneer Fund”, “The Shickshinny Knights of Malta” and “The American Security Council”. It is from within these blatantly pro-Fascist and anti-Semitic groups that the plot to murder President John F. Kennedy was originated, propagated and consummated, in my honest opinion. I have even traced the final payback to the takeover of The Draper Company by Rockwell Standard on 3/22/67. The exact role played by H. Smith Richardson and the Foundation named for him is being further investigated at this time.

Two of the persons named directly by Condon were described as “clerical fascists” and “Demagogues of the Depression” by several others. Reverend Gerald L. K. Smith and Rev. Charles E. Coughlin were both World War II isolationists from the “America First Committee” and considered to be seditionists and pro-fascists in some of their sermons and writings of the time. Others named directly included several right wing authors and commentators involved with either “The American Mercury” or “The Spotlight” of The Liberty Lobby, some of the most anti-Semitic and pro-Eugenics publications ever disseminated. They included George Sokolosky, David Laurence, Arnold Bennett and even Westbrook Pegler, whom Pat Buchanan once described as one of his father’s favorite commentators.

It was from this humble list of organizations and publications and about half a dozen of the closely associated right wing extremists that I embarked on my investigative journey. Little did I expect that I would discover half a dozen more right wing extremist organizations which shared interlocking directorates with those persons identified by Richard Condon. It is from this list that I have compiled what I believe is Condon’s list of the most violent and virulent and vocal of all the anti-Kennedy demagogues from that time period which I refer to as “Condon’s Dirty Dozen”. Was Condon trying to warn us in the late 1950’s that these people were mobilizing resentment against then Senator Kennedy which would lead to assassination attempts against his life in the very near future? The first attempt involved Edgar Eugene Bradley and William Potter Gale in California in 1960 and the final one was in Dallas in 1963 which very likely involved some or most of the members of “Condon’s Dirty Dozen”.

Richard Condon refers at least twice to a television program called: “Defenders of Our Liberty” upon which Senator John Yerkes Iselin, was scheduled to appear. (Iselin was the paradigm for eventual World Anti- Communist leader and MK/ULTRA operative Ray S. Cline by dint of a matching persona and by use of an anagram.) I knew that the head of the Dallas John Birch Society, Dr. Robert J. Morris, the close associate of Major General Charles Willoughby and Larrie Schmidt, who was Bernard Weissman’s contact for the “Wanted For Treason” poster in Dallas was head of an organization with a very similar sounding name.

Or perhaps he edited a publication with a name just like the fictitious television program in The Manchurian Candidate. Sure enough, Eric G. Olson came up with a sample of the Quarterly Publication of “Defenders of American Liberties”, titled: “Our Liberties” which had as its “Editor” none other than Robert Morris and he used an address of: The Adolphus Tower, Dallas, Texas. The Adolphus Tower was probably just in the neighborhood of the Adolphus Hotel where the 1993 ASK conference (Assassination Symposium Kennedy) was actually held. The Publisher of Our Liberties was Defenders of American Liberties at P.O. Box #562 in Bensenville, Illinois the same address used by right wing extremist Dean Richards of Dean Richards, Inc. an employee of Fred Flick of the Flick-Reedy Corporation who advertised often in The John Birch Society’s American Opinion Magazine, as well as other right wing publications. Who was the founder of Defenders of American Liberties? Robert J. Morris. The President of DAL? J. Fred Schlafly.

Fred Flick, who was not mentioned in The Manchurian Candidate, shows up later during his involvement with The Cardinal Mindszenty Foundation from St. Louis and The St. Michael’s Abbey from Orange County California on their lay advisory board which also included Dr. Robert J. Morris, L. Brent Bozell, (William F. Buckley’s brother in law), Phyllis J. Schlafly, (J. Fred Schlafly’s wife), Patrick J. Frawley, Jr. (On the Boards of Schick Razor and Technicolor with Robert J. Morris) and General Thomas A. Lane. Buckley is only referred to obliquely in The Manchurian Candidate as “…that fascinating young man who wrote about man and God at Yale.” Buckley’s book was actually titled: “God and Man at Yale” for Henry Regnery Publishing Company in the early 1950’s. Henry’s father William Regnery was a cotton and textile millionaire and a founder of The America First Committee as well, along with Henry Smith Richardson who donated $100,000 to the American First Committee knowing its goal was to prevent America from entering the War against Hitler. His Smith Richardson Foundation eventually funded the MK/ULTRA experiments at Bridgewater State Hospital and elsewhere.

From this select group associated with the Cardinal Mindszenty Foundation originated four of the most important books ever written as far as the radical right is concerned: “No Wonder We Are Losing” and “Disarmament, Weapons of Conquest” by Robert J. Morris published by former CIA agent Lyle Munson’s Bookmailer Publishing and “The Gravediggers” and “Strike From Space“ written jointly by Phyllis Schlafly and Admiral Chester A. Ward for the right wing Pere Marquette Press in Alton, Illinois. These four books along with “Brainwashing” by Dr. Edward Hunter for Henry Regnery Press also mentioned in The Manchurian Candidate, laid the cornerstone and set the marching orders for all the Cold War arguments about the magnitude of the alleged “ICBM Missile Gap”, “Sputnik Satellite Gap” and “Mind Control Gap” between the United States and Russia.

Brief Book Reviews about the Schlafly-Ward jointly written books by Helene Charmillon-Pohl from the University of Wisconsin are included for illustrative purposes.

Playing footloose with mainstream historiography, Schlafly and Ward interpret Khrushchev’s dismissal as punishment for his betraying state secrets, Eisenhower’s Farewell message and his warnings against the military-industrial complex as directed to domestic Socialists and the Vietnam War as a Russian diversion. Subscribing to multiple conspiracy theories and to the notion that Communists from the all over the world speak in code (Aesopian language), the authors strike at their panoply of usual villains: McNamara, Rostow, the Pughwashers (named after a secret meeting held in Pugwash, Nova Scotia), Nitze, Fulbright and even Kennan the father of the containment doctrine. Bordering on the slanderous, this work attempts to convince the general public with highly emotionally charged language that the American government is determined to sell out to the Soviet Union rather than strengthen its military.

Seeking to arouse suspicion and distrust, Ward and Schlafly relentlessly accuse the Kennedy Administration of jeopardizing the country and practicing appeasement with the Soviet Union. Highly critical of the politics of deterrence, the authors suggest that the elite is either duped by the Russians or guilty of collusion: by agreeing first to a nuclear testing moratorium and then to a test ban treaty, the United States is falling prey to Russian psychological warfare. According to The Gravediggers, the only redemption possible is through the election of Goldwater, endowed with the MacArthurs heroic qualities.

(Phyllis Schlafly With Rear Admiral Chester Charles Ward). The Betrayers. Alton, Ill.: Pere Marquette Press, 1968. 125 p. Bibliography: p. 121-125. OCLC no. 42847.

Engaging in hyperbole and inflammatory rhetoric, Schlafly accused the government of not putting all its energy to winning the Vietnam War and of allowing the USSR to dominate in the arms race. Allegedly examining the issues of whether officials are fools, dupes or traitors, the author lunges in a rambling diatribe about both an increase in urban crime and the widespread employment of communist sympathizers. Not unlike the infamous McCarthy, she rails and rants against the whiz kids and the intellectuals and calls for their removal notably from the Defense Department for consistently kowtowing to Communist powers. Schlaflys program for the nation’s improvement include the restoration of morality, law and order, the winning of the Vietnam war, nuclear superiority and the election of Richard M. Nixon.

While there is not sufficient space to develop this theme now, you should be made aware that the first cause celebre of the far right in the late 1940’s which attempted to make a case for a “Mind Control Gap” in order to fan the flames during the McCarthy era, was the Cardinal Mindszenty “brainwashing” incident in Communist Hungary. A few years later, this identical Cold War cadre from the Catholic ultra- Right returned shortly after Sputnik became a reality, to use that incident for their “Sputnik Missile Gap” arguments. They had been using the clout and the arguments of Hungarian Edward Teller, the father of the Atomic Bomb, as their cause celebre for their “ICBM Missile Gap” arguments and would continue to do so for 25 years or more until the Ronald Reagan Era ended with the fall of the Iron Curtain. The failure of the Hungarian Revolution of 1956 also figured prominently in right wing rhetoric for several decades and of course, preceded the Sputnik crisis initiated in 1957 which was exacerbated when Yuri Gargarin later became the first human to orbit the Earth.

These events with a common link to Hungary are only noted because of my ancestry as an Austro-Hungarian. Ah, yes, for those who tried to claim I am Italian and therefore pro-Mafia, guess again. These subjects were discussed constantly in my home, at the parochial school I attended and from the Church pulpit during my early formative childhood years. The concepts, discussions and goals of “Freedom Fighters” were constant and prevalent in South Florida during the 1950’s and 1960’s, whether it involved Hungarian Freedom Fighters, Polish Freedom Fighters or somewhat later the Cuban Freedom Fighters. All of them shared several common goals, preserving the Church against the advances of “Godless, atheistic Communism”, regaining a lost homeland from a foreign occupation force, restoring property, titles and valuables viewed as having been taken by the Communists, being reunited with aging family, childhood friends and compatriots caught behind the Iron Curtain, and destroying the menace that was perceived as a threat to the very practice of the Catholic Religion and the sovereignty and the safety of the haven in the United States.

Other than this little list which included God, Family, Country and Property, Communism was considered just a benign alternative political system by the arch-Catholic right wing in the United States as evidenced by the John Birch Society. Yeah, right. Why the Catholic Church became convinced that an alliance with former Nazis or active ex-Nazis and otherwise unrepentant Nazis was the surest method of attaining their goals will remain a question for the ages. Was it a moral question of lesser evils or a more pragmatic decision based on some perceived reality? To what extents were they deluded or tricked into playing into the hands of these people is debated to this day. I personally believe that Psychological Warfare experts like James J. Angleton, William Donovan, Allen Dulles, Frank Wisner and Philip J. Corso could convince anyone about anything once they set their minds to it. Giovanni Battista Montini was, quite frankly, no match for either Angleton, Dulles or Corso.

Condon refers to a group headed by “Fightin Frank” Bollinger (Bonner Fellers) involving John Yerkes Iselin (Ray S. Cline) called “Ten Million Americans Mobilizing for Tomorrow”. It was an obvious reference to the real group called “Ten Million Americans Mobilizing for Justice” (abbreviated: TMA) which was a McCarthyite support organization which worked tirelessly to prevent the censure of Senator McCarthy. The national chairman of TMA was Lieutenant General George E. Stratemeyer, who was also one of the national directors of “For America”, the Bonner Fellers directed organization. Stratemeyer was also on the original Board of Policy of The Liberty Lobby which often called for opposition to JFKs Foreign and Domestic Policies.

Consider this overly optimistic quote from Cross-Currents by Epstein and Forster from the mid-1950’s about Ten Million Americans Mobilizing for Justice (for McCarthy) on what they perceived to be a rather slow and ineffectual start to this blatant McCarthyite support organization: “Which is why the anxious efforts of Rear Admiral John G. Crommelin [soon to be the Presidential Candidate of the NSRP that Joseph A. Milteer was involved with in 1963] and Major George Racey Jordan [of Major Jordan’s Diaries and The Manchurian Candidate] to turn TMA’s mass following into a permanent national body are failing.

” “The big Madison Square Garden rally, held by TMA on November 29 (in 1955) was an obvious fizzle. Gerald L. K. Smith, Joseph P. Kamp (another notorious anti-Semite), and a generous representation of other ‘pros’ were sprinkled around the vast auditorium.” The term “pros” referred to professional anti-semites and professional pro-fascists as referenced elsewhere in Cross-Currents. Gerald L. K. Smith was mentioned by name in The Manchurian Candidate directly and Major George Racey Jordan was described obliquely by using an anagram implying that he was in fact a member of the Waffen SS of Adolph Hitler.

Others associated with the real TMA included General Pedro A. del Valle of Shickshinny Knights of Malta fame, General George Van Horn Moseley the “man on the white horse” who was chosen as champion of the 1930’s coup d’etat attempt against FDR called the General Smedley A. Butler affair, which was documented by Jules Archer in “The Plot to Take the White House”. Other TMA dignitaries included John B. Trevor, Sr. of the American Coalition of Patriotic Societies who was Wickliffe Draper’s crony on The Pioneer Fund and Louis D. Carroll who was active very early in both of these eventual Willis Carto organizations: the Constitution Party (begun around 1952) and the Congress of Freedom (which reached national prominence in 1955 but according to Dr. Revilo P. Oliver may actually have been started as early as 1951).

Russ Bellant in Old Nazis, the New Right and the Republican Party had this to say about John B. Trevor, Sr. of The Pioneer Fund and the American Coalition of Patriotic Societies and TMA: John Trevor, Sr. was a leader of a group, Ten Million Americans Mobilizing for Justice, attempting to prevent the censure of Joe McCarthy. Its leadership represented a Whos Who of American anti- Semitism. At their 1954 rally for McCarthy, a female photographer taking pictures of the special guest section for magazine was physically assaulted amid shouts of Dirty Jew and Hang the communist bitch! The German-born American Generals Fellers and Wedemeyer as well as Robert Morris and Senator McCarthy were mentioned as Chronoscope guests during that period and both Fellers and McCarthy often appeared on Robert Morris’ Defenders of American Liberty program, cited directly by Richard Condon. Condon implied that John Yerkes Iselin’s attendance on that show was as a proxy for Ray S. Cline, “Johnny” is Rey S. Kline, who was eventually Deputy Director of the CIA and World Chairman of WACL during its most Fascist periods. Richard Condon REALLY KNEW what he was talking about beyond the shadow of a doubt.

Of the four most popular radio commentators in the early 1950’s Westbrook Pegler, Fulton J. Lewis, Walter Winchell and Drew Pearson, Walter Winchell was closest to being a moderate. Pearson wrote courageous scathing exposés of McCarthy’s devious backroom dealings. Two of the most popular pulpit bullies in America, Pegler and Lewis, pandered to McCarthy, voluntarily slanted news stories for him and ignored unfavorable press reports to enhance the Senator’s public image. Another televised political discussion program, Longines Chronoscope, aired from 1950 to 1955 on stations with a CBS franchise. Chronoscope borrowed from the news magazine format. Interviewers or co-editors steered the conversation along, usually William Bradford Huie, publisher and editor of American Mercury Magazine; (mentioned at the Richard Giesbrecht Incident and mentioned in The Manchurian Candidate via direct naming of American Mercury writers like Arnold Bennett, George Sokolosky, David Laurence and Westbrook Pegler) Henry Hazlitt, a political economist and contributing editor of Newsweek, publisher of Freeman magazine; and Larry Lesueur, a reporter for CBS News.” Guests on CBS Chronoscope during the McCarthy Era included the following (CBS executives from that time: included both Frank Shakespeare and William Paley, both notable right wingers themselves.) Notable guests on Chronoscope from that period, who were described or mentioned in The Manchurian Candidate, included the following luminaries from the far right:

1) Brig. Gen. Bonner F. Fellers (October 3, 1951), strategist and psychological warfare expert. Mentioned in The Manchurian Candidate as Fighting Frank Bollinger and under his thinly veiled slightly renamed organization: Ten Million Americans Fighting “for Justice” instead of “for Tomorrow”.

2) Lt. Gen. Albert C. Wedemeyer (June 18, 1952), national chairman, Citizens for Taft Committee, director of the U.S. Liberty Lobby, and Nazi operative. Wedemeyer was suspected of leaking U.S. war plans to the Germans early in World War II.

3) Senator Joseph R. McCarthy (R-WI) (June 25, 1952). (The entire novel, The Manchurian Candidate is about the reactionary McCarthy era and its aftermath for all intents and purposes.

) 4) Dr. Robert J. Morris (July 2, 1952:), special counsel, Senate Internal Security Subcommittee, otherwise known as the McCarran committee). Morris is the person named the most often in The Manchurian Candidate by far. At least a half dozen time.

The Shickshinny Knight of Malta Order (SKOM), officially called The Sovereign Order of Saint John of Jerusalem, has been headed by Col. Thourot Pichel in Shickshinny, Pennsylvania, although a few years ago the Order was torn by serious internal rifts between Pichel and the late Frank A. Capell, [Capell was reknowned as the “chief propaganda researcher” for Dr. Revilo P. Oliver a founding stockholder in the John Birch Society, one of the protagonists in The Manchurian Candidate by Richard Condon. Oliver eventually appeared in front of The Warren Commission and was on the Board of The Church of the Creator.] How Richard Condon could have predicted this close association of Dr. Revilo P. Oliver with the JFK murder and the Warren Commission more than 5 years in the future appears to be a feat of magic until you listen to the tape recorded speeches of Dr. Oliver on his website shrine. The level of vitriol and hatred Oliver spewed against John F. Kennedy between 1960 and 1963 at these meetings of The Congress of Freedom and The National Indignation Committee should have been enough to place him high on the FBI and the Secret Service watch lists. But the FBI considered the John Birch Society as a harmless Patriotic organization, and did not see any reason to monitor them. Frank A. Capell was also a Contributing Editor of the John Birch Societys Review of the News and the founder of a survivalist right group called Zarepath-Horab near the Arkansas-Missouri border as well as the publisher of The Herald of Freedom from New Jersey.

This SKOM Order achieved some notoriety a few years ago when it officially recognized the claims of controversial defector Michael Goleniewski to be Aleksei Romanoff, heir to the Russian Imperial House of Romanoff. [Anastase Vonsiatsky, Draper’s hired thug, union strikebreaker and mercenary worked for The Romanoff Caviar Company in America for several years and worked tirelessly to restore the Czarist Monarchy which he himself claimed as part of his controversial heritage. Vonsiatsky was also featured in “ The Manchurian Candidate” by Richard Condon as THE Manchurian Candidate himself. Vonsiatsky’s International Headquarters were located in Harbin, Manchuoko, Manchuria for decades before his prison term from 1942-46 for violating The Espionage Act of 1917.]

The Romanoff dynasty case would be less interesting if the CIA’s MK/ ULTRA specialist James Angleton and Anastase Vonsiatsky who both also merited mention by Condon in The Manchurian Candidate, were not two of the principal supporters of Goleneiwski and some extremely rightwing members of the military intelligence community were not listed as members of SKOM in a document issued by the Order in 1970. The Order listed as members of its Military Affairs Committee, under the Chairmanship of General Douglas MacArthur’s displaced Korean War team that included these four right wing ultra-hawks: (1) Gen. Lemuel C. Shepherd, (2) Maj. Gen. Charles A. Willoughby, Robert Morris’ constant compatriot (Willoughby was also part of Billy James Hargis’ Anti- Communist Liaison Committee of Correspondence along with General Bonner Fellers and Edward Hunter, the author of the term “Brainwashing”), (3) Brig. Gen. Bonner Fellers (TMA and The Manchurian Candidate), and (4) Gen. Pedro A. del Valle (TMA and Defenders of the American Constitution), who according to Stuart Christies “Stefano delle Chiaie, Portrait of a Black Terrorist” (London: Anarchy Magazine, 1984), invited Italian neo-Nazi Guido Giannettini to the U.S. to conduct a seminar at the U.S. Naval Academy at Annapolis, where del Valle was Commander at the time.

Both Foster & Epsteins Danger on the Right (New York: Random House, 1964) and Janson & Eismanns The Far Right (New York: McGraw Hill, 1963) called del Valle an anti-Semite. And Professor William F. Tucker while doing a book about Wickliffe Draper and The Pioneer Fund The Funding of Scientific Racism, found several references in the Pedro del Valle papers to del Valles anti-Semitism and racist beliefs. Pedro A. del Valle was born in San Juan, Puerto Rico and considered himself part of some special Draper styled Master Race after he became a high ranking officer in the Marine Corps. Del Valle actually lost a job with Sosthenes Benes in South America with ITT after his controversial opinions on the topics of anti-Semitism and racism became obvious.

Revealing insights into these Shickshinny Knights of Malta, Charles Willoughby and Lt. Col. Philip J. Corso were provided by Michael Cannon in this Usenet posting from July 8, 1997. It just further confirms the Nazi based alliances behind almost everyone involved with the leadership of these Shickshinny Knights including Charles Thourot- Pichel.

Corso has a history of disturbing ties to racists, fascist sympathizers and nutball theories. He had worked with Reinhard Gehlen (formerly Hitlers chief intelligence officer) and the BND in trying to set up terrorist operations within Eastern Europe. Washington considered such schemes risky in the nuclear age, so the plug was pulled. Corso soon counted himself among that weirdo coterie of military intelligence staffers who considered the CIA soft on communism, and most likely heavily infiltrated by the KGB. Similar beliefs were held by Corsos ally, General Charles Willoughby, who had been Douglas MacArthurs intelligence chief. Theres a lot of published material on and by WIlloughby, and its all worth reading. In short, Willoughby was an anti- Semite, and an extremist who saw the world in conspiratorial terms. His politics leaned so far to the extreme Right that one can only wonder why he served on the Allied side during World War II. (MacArthur called him ‘My Little Fascist.

’) When Corso left military intelligence in 1963, he became a key aide to J. Strom Thurmond, who helped lead the pro-segregation crusades of the 1960s. But he did not sever his ties to Willoughby. Corso also became a leading member of a bizarre organization called the Shickshinny Knights of Malta. (After Napoleon attacked the island of Malta, the story goes, a number of knights migrated to Russia and joined the Czars inner guard; after the revolution, these staunch White Russians migrated to America – many going to Shickshinny, PA, hence the name.

) At the time Corso joined the exclusive sect, its leader was one Colonel Charles Thourot-Pichel who was an explicit, undeniable Nazi. During the Third Reich, he had begged Hitlers government for the job of representing Nazi political interests in the United States. He communicated directly with Ernst Hanfstangel, one of Hitler’s top aides. Willoughby had also joined the Shickshinny Knights at this time, and co-published with the organization a periodical called the ‘Foreign Intelligence Journal.’ This journal specialized in anti- Semitic theories and the kind of extremist enemy-within anti- Communist blather we associate with groups like the John Birch Society. Apparently, this rather odd group had become, in the early 1960s, something of a dumping-ground for military intelligence veterans who were so zealous they had come to consider the CIA hopelessly ‘pink.

’ “The darling of Corsos ‘Knight-ly’ friends was a very strange man named Michael Goliniewski, whose name pops up in most histories of the CIA ‘mole-hunts’ of the 1960s. Goliniewski was a high-ranking Polish intelligence officer who sympathized with ‘the West,’ and began feeding information to the CIA. Apparently, his info was rather good at first. The Soviets became suspicious of him, so he had to scuttle off to America quickly. It soon became apparent to the saner CIA analysts that Goliniewski was, to put the matter bluntly, out of his mind. He began to claim that he was no less a personage than Prince Alexei, the Czars son and rightful heir...! Goliniewski never persuasively explained how Alexei cured his internal bleeding, or the EXTERNAL bleeding he no doubt underwent at Ekaterinberg. Nor did he explain how the Prince somehow became a leader within the intelligence apparat of a Communist country. (Youd think Polish spooks would do a better background check...)”

None of this mattered to Angleton or to the John Birchers who essentially certified his claims to being the rightful heir to the Russian Czarist Romanoff throne. This was in all likelihood done to appease Anastase Vonsiatsky who worked for the Romanoff Caviar Company and felt he needed some quasi-legitimate reason to encourage other White Russian expatriates to rally around him and his cause. It was almost as if raising Prince Alexei Romanoff from the dead would make him a Christ-like figure and spontaneously cause millions of dollars to flow into their coffers. It worked to an extent.

“At any rate, Goliniewski (like other defectors) caused much mischief by telling dark tales of KGB penetration of both the American and British intelligence services and governments. His claims were baseless, but for a while they did much harm.” In fact James Angleton used Goliniewski as one of the major justifications for his Honetel 10 purge attempts within the CIA. Angleton, who also was considered by most well placed observers to be out of his mind as well was Goliniewski’s main and sometimes only supporter because it supported Angleton’s delusional claims from previous years.

“As is usually the case in these realms, anyone in a Western governments service who espoused anything less than a full-scale attack on the Soviet Union (never mind the nuclear consequences) was damned as a Soviet ‘penetration agent.’” “The CIA soon learned not to take Goliniewski seriously. But his demented world-view fit right in with the ideas held by the Knights, Willoughby, Corso and company. So these ‘Knights’ became the chief propagandists for Goliniewski in the United States. Ive read a few of Goliniewskis latter-day screeds -- he used to publish a rag called ‘Double Eagle.’ It was filled with wild, quasi-fascistic conspiracy theories, which usually had to do with occult powers driving the inexorable Communist drive to world domination. A lot of what he wrote struck me as thinly-disguised anti-Semitism, making use of the usual euphemisms for powerful Jews (e.g., ‘the Dark Forces,’ the ‘International Bankers,’ and so on). And THIS was the man whose world- view was pushed heavily by the Shickshinny Knights -- Corsos group.” (as well as by the John Birchers and Angleton within the CIA.

) “Corso also was instrumental in pushing disinformation about the JFK assassination, labeling Oswald a tool of an alleged ‘KGB ring’ within the United States.” Of the three persons most responsible for promulgating this “deliberate disinformation” about Oswald, Dr. Revilo P. Oliver, Reverend Gerald L. K. Smith and Lt. Col. Philip J. Corso, only Corso managed to elude Richard Condon’s direct or indirect identification in the late 1950’s. Senator Strom Thurmond was not so fortunate, however, being identified as Senator Thomas Jordan, as both the paradigm for Senator Jordan and an almost perfect anagram for the letters in Thomas Jordan. A remarkable feat to say the least on the part of Richard Condon. James Angleton was reported feeling out one of his comrades at the CIA regarding The Manchurian Candidate, by his biographer David Mangold who quotes this exchange between Angleton and Kisavalter inside a CIA elevator:

Angleton: “You’ve got to see this new movie that just came out.”

Kisavalter: “Which movie is that, Jim?”

Angleton: “The Manchurian Candidate. It bears out my thinking.”

Of the four Generals on the Military Affairs Committee of SKOM, only Marine Gen. Lemuel C. Shepherd was American born and he is the only one of the four who is not a suspect in the murder of JFK. Stratemeyer on the Board of Policy of The Liberty Lobby and Wedemeyer, also German- born, have been listed by several authors and JFK researchers as having more in common with the Third Reich than with the welfare of the United States of America along with Fellers and Willoughby which would explain why they would pick an ex-Nazi like the former British Admiral, Sir Barry Domville to serve with them on SKOM as their Honorary Grand Admiral. Domville who had been jailed by the British during WW II as a Nazi agent, and was later listed as a Contributing Editor of Willis Cartos Western Destiny, in November 1965, when Dr. Roger Pearson, from Washington DC, was the Editor. Pearson was the British Fascist who was perhaps one of the largest beneficiaries of The Pioneer Fund grants and former leader of The World Anti-Communist League during its most blatantly pro-Fascist periods. There is no way that Dr. Roger Pearson’s influence and contributions to this nexus of groups surrounding the JFK Assassination can be overestimated. Pearson worked directly with James J. Angleton of the CIA at the H. Smith Richardson Foundation on MK/ULTRA related projects.

Perhaps one of the biggest breakthroughs in conclusively identifying how the MK/ULTRA Research on Programmed Assassins could have been leaked from within the confines of the official CIA based H. Smith Richardson Foundation projects involving Dr. Hans J. Eysenck to the realm of the conspirators within The Pioneer Fund where Eysenck was the recipient of multiple Pioneer Fund grants comes from this quotation from “The Un-Americans” by Frank J. Donner (Ballantine Books, New York, 1961, p. 52). This volume is an excellent overview about the fascist influences within the membership of the House Committee on Un-American Activities (HUAC) from the person who also wrote “The Age of Surveillance” a few years later, an indictment of both the McCarthy Era and the illegal FBI and CIA snooping and COINTELPRO operations in ensuing years. H. Smith Richardson made his millions with Richardson-Vicks the maker of Vicks Vapo Rub. I can still almost remember the precise smell of a jar of Vapo Rub sitting next to my bedside during periods of illness.

The common linkage among HUAC, The Pioneer Fund, MK/ULTRA and Henry Smith Richardson himself was none other than Richard G. Arens, the Immigration control expert from the McCarthy Era who was a full-time paid consultant for Wickliffe Draper while he worked for both Draper Committees, the HUAC based Immigration Committee run by Rep. Francis E. Walter of Pennsylvania and the SISS based “Genetics” Committee which was really the Pioneer Fund “Eugenics” Committee of Senator James O. Eastland of Mississippi which had been named harmlessly to be more socially palatable and acceptable. This double-dipping eventually cost Arens his job with the House Committee and sent him into shrill yelling and screaming tirades against the reporters, like Ronald H. May, eventually responsible for his dismissal. Doubtless he remained on the Draper payroll and helped both Morris and Draper on their upcoming campaigns against the Liberals, the Communists and later against JFK directly.

“Arens refused to tell (Ronald H.) May (Washington correspondent for the Madison Capital Times and the York, Pa Gazette) what work he did for the Draper project, except that it consisted of finding beneficiaries for research grants in the fields of ‘immigration and genetics.’ May also discovered that Draper made grants to ‘patriotic’ anti-Communist organizations and that Arens had given advice to other wealthy men (such as H. L. Hunt, the Texas oil man, and Smith Richardson, North Carolina pharmaceutical magnate) on grants of funds to patriotic organizations.

” H. L. Hunt made his original fortune in the Korean Soybeans Futures markets shortly after the outbreak of the Korean War. Professor Bruce Cumings in “The Origins of the Korean War” (Princeton University Press - 1994) directly attributed this incredible stroke of good fortune to inside information and advanced notification about the precise timing of the upcoming outbreak of war from none other than Major General Charles A. Willoughby, MacArthur’s Head of Intelligence during World War II and Korea. H. L. Hunt returned the favor a few years later by giving the recently sacked Willoughby with a high paying job with the then growing Hunt oil empire in Mozambique, looking for suitable oil lease locations. This close association with the Hunt family continued over the years until 1972 when Willoughby and Draper both finally died.

The Associate Chief of International Intelligence for SKOM listed was Herman E. Kimsey, a high-ranking CIA operative who had worked with the Army CIC during the war. Kimsey was very close to Spas T. Raikin, who greeted the Oswalds as they got off the boat from Minsk, Russia. Raikin and Willoughby served together on the American Friends of The Anti-Bolshevik Block of Nations (ABN) along with the Urkainian fascist Yaroslaw Stetsko. Some still insist that Raikin’s role with the Oswalds was something unimportant or coincidental. Raikin knows a whole lot more than he ever admits.

In my opinion, the majority of General Douglas MacArthur’s entire former Korean War team joined The Shickshinny Knights of Malta in order to retain their powerbase, their sphere of influence and their unified sense of purpose which was to defeat Communism once and for all despite the efforts of either Truman or Kennedy or Carter to thwart their violent, anti-Democracy and anti-Constitutional propensities much like the later efforts of the Iran-Contra crowd and the World Anti-Communist League.

Professor William Tucker found General Pedro del Valle important enough to include in his recent book on the topic of Wickliffe Draper, The Pioneer Fund and The Funding of Scientific Racism.

One of the coalitions official spokespersons who presented its resolutions to the House Committee on Foreign Affairs was General Pedro del Valle, a member of the Liberty Lobbys advisory board, who professed ‘the instinctive distrust which is natural in all Christians for all Jews, diluted or pure’; Jews ‘cannot also be good Americans,’ he wrote to a fellow officer, because ‘all Jews are hostile to the kind of America that anybody but a Jew desires.’ Del Valle was also a co-owner of the biweekly paper Common Sense, which claimed that Mao Zedong was a ‘front ... for New York Jews,’ and del Valle was considered a member of ‘our ... inner circle of top people’ by George Lincoln Rockwell, ‘Commander’ of the American Nazi Party, one of the faithful few who donated to Rockwells campaign to ‘nail the n and Jew LEADERS’ behind ‘Martin Luther Coon.’ The linkages among The John Birch Society of Robert Welch, The Pioneer Fund of Wickliffe Draper and The Liberty Lobby of Willis Carto were legion and are just now coming to the surface. For example when Carto announced a sixteen-man Advisory Board for his new Liberty Lobby operation, later to be renamed the Board of Policy, it included Judge Tom Brady (White Citizens Councils), Generals Pedro del Valle and George Stratemeyer, and W.L. Foster of Tulsa, Oklahoma, who was active in “We, the People” and “Congress of Freedom” (another Willis Carto organization where assassination plots against 200 American liberals were openly discussed at the annual meeting of The Congress of Freedom on April 4, 1963 in New Orleans attended by Dr. Revilo P. Oliver and Joseph A. Milteer of Senator J. Strom Thurmond’s National States Rights Party). Foster was also a financial supporter of veteran anti-semite Gerald L.K. Smith, who appeared by name in The Manchurian Candidate by Richard Condon as well a financial supporter of Billy James Hargis of Tulsa, and his Anti-Communist Liaison Committee of Correspondence. Later in 1958, Colonel Eugene C. Pomeroy became Liberty Lobbys Washington Secretary, operating out of the offices of his own organization, “Defenders of the American Constitution” (later taken over by General Pedro Augusto del Valle).

Richard Condon appears to have been one of the very few persons who recognized the native duplicity and outright propensity for violence and espionage emanating from these foreign-born pro-fascist Generals from the far right. For example you can read the relatively benign and perfunctory descriptions proffered by Arnold Forster and Benjamin R. Epstein, Cross-Currents (Garden City, New York: Doubleday & Company, 1956). In reviewing the descriptions of some of the more powerful right-wing Generals involved with the Shickshinny Knights of Malta like Pedro del Valle, George Stratemeyer, and Bonner Fellers no where do we see the warnings or danger assessments as described by Condon. Only Russ Bellant, in Old Nazis, the New Right and the Republican Party seems to have the benefit of hindsight in describing their possible threats. A number of figures named in Charles Thourot Pichels History of the Order of St. John were instrumental in setting up the Liberty Lobby of Willis A. Carto, the second publisher of White America by Earnest Sevier Cox. Edward von Rothkirch, a member of the SKOM Order, helped set up Truth-in-Press, a Liberty Lobby 501©3 tax exempt group.

Gen. Albert C. Wedemeyer also part of American Security Council and The John Birch Society and the supra-isolationist pro-Fascist America First groups before and during World War II. Wedemeyer was born in Germany, attended the German War College and was a closet anti-Semite who maintained relationships with German Staff Generals during the war. Wedemeyer was suspected as the source of the leak of American War Plans to Senator Burton K. Wheeler which appeared in the Chicago Tribune. Bonner Fellers was featured in The Manchurian Candidate, by Richard Condon as early as 1958. It is significant that these foreign- born Generals were considered staunch allies of General Douglas A. MacArthur and Maj. Gen. Charles Willoughby (who was born in Heidelburg, Germany in 1892).

Do not forget that the name General Douglas MacArthur does NOT even appear ONCE in the novel, The Manchurian Candidate, but by 1961, the movie rendition of the novel BEGINS with a closeup of an oil portrait of General of the Armies, Douglas MacArthur and later includes another picture of him in the troops barracks tent during a poker game. The movie ends when the Presidential Candidate, Benjamin K. Arthur, attends a rally in Madison Square Garden where he is supposed to be the target of an assassin using a high-powered rifle from a lighting booth high above the convention floor. What caused Richard Condon and John Frankheimer to make this editorial adjustment to the novel, by adding references to MacArthur, when the movie was being made? Why did they also include half-dozen references in the movie to the other President assassinated by the cotton plantation and textile mill interests from the Deep South, Abraham Lincoln when the novel, The Manchurian Candidate, has absolutely NO references to Abraham Lincoln that I was able to uncover? In the movie, I counted several Lincoln busts, a Lincoln picture and an Abraham Lincoln costume at a Halloween party worn by James Gregory. What other information has recently come to light that might support my contentions regarding the almost uncanny foreknowledge exhibited by Richard Condon in his novel as it relates to the then pending JFK assassination? Confirmation and corroboration has been provided by these 2 independent sources in recent months: From Dr. Revilo P. Oliver himself, even though he has been dead for several years. A friend suggested that I listen to the tape recorded speeches of Dr. Oliver himself on the Revilo P. Oliver shrine and website which I had been avoiding for a few years now. Reluctantly I did and was amazed to discover that Oliver mentions at least half of Richard Condon’s Dirty Dozen himself as being close friends and trusted associates of his including Judge Robert Morris, Major General Edwin Walker, Senator Strom Thurmond, Dr. Edward Hunter, General Bonner Fellers, Major George Racey Jordan, etc.

From Jerry P. Shinley in a posting he made on the Usenet JFK Conspiracy region as follows under the title: Ed Scannell Butler’s INCA, William Kintner, the New Orleans Cold War Seminar and the Institute for American Strategy (IAS).

The Fulbright Memorandum documents the Senators concern with a series of Cold War Strategy Seminars conducted jointly by the Joint Chiefs of Staff, the National War College, the Foreign Policy Research Institute, and the Institute of American Policy. Kintner was prominently involved in these activities. Another person involved was Frank R. Barnett, research director of the Richardson (now, Smith Richardson) Foundation and the Institute of American Strategy. The theme of these seminars was a push for cold war victory and a repudiation of doctrines of co-existence. Psychological warfare played a large part in the work of Kintner and Barnett.

What Jerry Shinley was not aware of apparently, was that the primary funding source for the CIA’s MK/ULTRA program was in fact the H. Smith Richardson Foundation and that both the CIA’s James Angleton and Retired General Robert C. Richardson, III were heavily involved with this conduit along with The Pioneer Fund’s Roger Pearson according to Russ Bellant in Old Nazis, the New Right and the Republican Party. That implies that the work Ed Butler did with Lee Harvey Oswald during the staged radio debates on WSDU in New Orleans had to have something to do with Butler’s links through INCA and into MK/ULTRA via James Angleton and The Pioneer Fund’s Dr. Hans J. Eysenck, an inveterate Nazi psychologist and Roger Pearson who worked with Angleton at the H. Smith Richardson Foundation projects.

J. William Fulbright in his Fulbright Memorandum specifically warns us about the IAS and the FPRI just as Eisenhower did about the American Security Council and the Military Industrial Complex in his Farewell Address. That means that both Eisenhower and Fulbright can be added to Richard Condon as being some of the earliest and most accurate warning sources regarding the identity of the actual persons and organizations which eventually perpetrated the JFK Assassination. The leadership of The American Security Council included a coterie of persons with expertise in psychological warfare and Soviet counter-espionage. The only problem is that all of them showed evidence of private allegiances to the fascists or Nazis involved with the Third Reich instead of to the Democracy of the United States of America. The Big Four were: Maj. Gen. Charles A. Willoughby, Dr. Robert J. Morris, James J. Angleton and Ray S. Cline all of whom were well known to Richard Condon in The Manchurian Candidate.

There were actually 4 references in The Manchurian Candidate to members or founders of YAF, The Young Americans for Freedom started by Larrie Schmidt a close ally of Robert J. Morris and Charles A. Willoughby in the Dallas John Birch Society. They were all linked to the Bernard Weismann, Wanted For Treason Poster circulated in Dallas on the weekend JFK died. They were Senator Strom Thurmond, William F. Buckley, Jr., Robert J. Morris and Maj. Gen. Charles A. Willoughby. Richard Condon knew who was behind the murder of JFK.

Others listed as part of the ASC in “Peace and Freedom through Cold War Victory” (ASC Press – 1964) include the following persons to give you some idea of the breadth of representation from the far right: Patrick J. Frawley, Jr. (Mindszenty Foundation), Jr., Dr. Edward Teller (Dr. Strangelove), Rear Admiral Chester Ward (Strike From Space), General Albert C. Wedemeyer, General Robert E. Wood (America First and Human Events), Henry Hazlitt (Newsweek and Chronoscope) who later shows up on the American Security Council Advisory Board, Marvin Liebman (McCarthyism and YAF), Dr. Stefan Possony (Hoover Inst of War and WACL), Spruille Braden (Birch Society) and John M. Fisher (ACPS and WACL).

The information about the relationship of the H Smith Richardson Foundation and MK/ULTRA as well as to Iran-Contra was provided by Webster Tarpley and Anton Chaitkin in their book: “The Unauthorized Biography of George Bush”: “Another Harriman/Bush friend, Eugene Stetson, was an assistant manager for Prescott Bush at Brown Brothers, Harrimans New York office. He organized the H. Smith Richardson Foundation. The foundation, in the late 1950s, participated in the MKULTRA, the CIAs domestic covert psychological warfare operation. The H. Smith Richardson Foundation helped to finance the testing of psychotropic drugs, including LSD, at Bridgewater State Hospital in Bridgewater, Massachusetts, the center of some of the most brutal MK-ULTRA experiments.

” It was these brutal MK/ULTRA experiments that led to the film “Titticut Follies” which was made in the late 1960’s.

“During the Iran-Contra operations, the H. Smith Richardson Foundation was a private donors steering committee, working with the National Security Council to co-ordinate the Office of Public Diplomacy. This was an effort to propagandize in favor of and run cover for the Iran- Contra operations, and to coordinate published attacks on opponents of the program. The H. Smith Richardson Foundation also runs the Center for Creative Leadership at Langley to train leaders of the CIA, as well as another center near Greensboro, North Carolina, that trains CIA and Secret Service Agents. Almost everyone who achieves the military rank of general also gets this training.

” Here are the excerpts from Edward Spannaus’ article on IAS, FPRI, Ed Butler and the H Smith Richardson Foundation from the Executive Intelligence Review web site. It is perhaps the most important independent corroboration of the relationships among these most nefarious of organizations first warned about by President Eisenhower in 1958, then Condon in 1959 and lastly, Fulbright in 1961, all to no avail. “Six months into the new administration of President John F. Kennedy, Senate Foreign Relations Committee Chairman J. William Fulbright (D- Ark.) was warning about the dangers of a revolt by right-wing military officers against the administration. Although Fulbright himself did not use the word ‘coup,’ others did including some who denied planning such a coup.

” Major General Edwin Walker was mentioned by Richard Condon in The Manchurian Candidate using his home address of “Turtle Creek Drive” where the alleged potshot shooting incident had occurred. Walker was also cited directly by none other than Jack Ruby in his sworn Warren Commission testimony as a suspect in the assassination of John F. Kennedy, along with other unnamed Dallas John Birch Society members which doubtlessly included Dr. Robert J. Morris and Major General Charles A. Willoughby as well who were the original founders of the Dallas John Birch Society cell and the most vociferous and prominent members of that group.

“The backdrop to the July 1961 Fulbright Memorandum was the April 1961 firing of Maj. Gen. Edwin Walker, who had been indoctrinating his troops in Augsburg, Germany, with John Birch Society propaganda. But this was only the most notorious case of a much broader pattern of political activity by military officers, which prominently included military collaboration with the H. Smith Richardson Foundations Frank Barnett; the Foreign Policy Research Institute (FPRI) of Robert Strausz-Hupé, then attached to the University of Pennsylvania; and the Institute for American Strategy (IAS). (Later, in the 1970s and 80s, Richard Mellon Scaife picked up much of the funding for these operations, along with the Smith Richardson Foundation, and the Olin Foundation.

)” Note: It was the Scaife and the Regnery interests which were behind the character assassination attempts on then President Bill Clinton during the 1990’s according to most verifiable accounts.

“The Fulbright Memorandum was drafted in July 1961 as a personal communication between the Senate and the Secretary of Defense, who was Robert McNamara. Entitled ‘Propaganda Activities of Military Personnel Directed at the Public,’ the memorandum began by noting that a 1958 National Security Council directive had made it the policy of the United States ‘to make use of military personnel and facilities to arouse the public to the menace of the Cold War.’ Fulbright reported that private organizations were preparing material that was then distributed by the military, material which was contrary to the Presidents policies. He noted that the actual programs being carried out under the 1958 directive ‘made use of extremely radical right-wing speakers and/or materials, with the probable net result of condemning foreign and domestic policies of the administration in the public mind.’” “Fulbrights allusion to a military coup, came as follows: Perhaps it is farfetched to call forth the revolt of the French generals as an example of the ultimate danger. Nevertheless, military officers, French or American, have some common characteristics arising from their profession and there are numerous military fingers on the trigger throughout the world. While this danger may appear very remote, contrary to American tradition, and even American military tradition, so also is the long twilight struggle [referring to President Kennedys characterization of the Cold War as a conflict which may not be solved in our lifetime], and so also is the very existence of an American military program for educating the public.

“Fulbright called for a review of the mission and operation of the National War College—as to whether it should operate under the Joint Chiefs of Staff (JCS)—and also urged that the relationships among FPRI, IAS, the Richardson Foundation, the National War College, and the JCS, be reexamined from the standpoint of whether these relationships do not amount to official support for a viewpoint at variance with that of the administration. When Walker testified before the committee in April 1962, he began by asserting that our Armed Forces are paralyzed by our national policy of no-win and retreat from victory. I am a victim of this no-win policy, he stated. He said that civilian control of the military had been transformed into a commissar-like system of control. Our will to resist Communism is fast being sapped, he charged. I was a scapegoat for an unwritten policy of collaboration and collusion with the international communist conspiracy.

“One final note: After the Congressional hearings in 1961-62 on military propaganda and Cold War education activities, and despite Barnetts grandiose plan, the seminars and related activities appear to have gone underground for a period of time. But in 1965, Lansdale, by now retired from the government, proposed a revival of the Cold War seminars. He was a principal author of a proposal to the American Security Council (of which he was then an official) to create a new forum, called the Freedom Studies Center, which was established on an estate near Culpepper, Virginia. (The property was still in the hands of the American Security Council until this year.) On the planning committee for the Freedom Studies Center was one Ed Butler, who only a couple of years earlier had been a key part of the operation in New Orleans to create a legend around Lee Harvey Oswald, the patsy in the Kennedy assassination.

” “As we noted at the outset, the Fulbright Memorandum warned that the political activities being carried out by the military, and by private institutions such as FPRI and the Richardson Foundation under official military auspices, constituted a threat to President Kennedys programs and policies. To what extent Senator Fulbright was aware of the emergence of the threat to Kennedys life is not known—although it is confirmed that Fulbright warned President Kennedy not to go to Dallas a few weeks before Kennedys fateful trip. But, when taken in light of what we now know today—and the reemergence of a military coup threat today—Senator Fulbrights warnings from 1961 are indeed worth pondering.

” I would echo these sentiments precisely and request that the JFK assassination research community take much more seriously the combined warnings of President Eisenhower, Senator Fulbright and Richard Condon. It is highly probable that the Kamikaze Pilots at the end of World War II and the Suicide Pilots from 9/11 were subjected to the identical mind control conditioning programs developed as part of The Manchurian Candidate programs like MK/ULTRA, Operation Bluebird and other related operations. We have a right to know after all.

Eventually private organizations like YAF, The Liberty Lobby and The John Birch Society should be made to divulge records related to their members who were vehemently, vociferously and violently opposed to John F. Kennedys policies and Kennedy himself. From among these groups the plot to kill John F. Kennedy was most assuredly germinated and then executed.
