Bruce Jones

(image)

born in 1945, son of a Chicago bookstore owner.

Ripon College, Wisconsin. Philosophy, Political Science major.

In the '60's 'flirted' with the SDS. (CIA infiltrated student organisation)

then worked as electronics and computer technician for a northern california company

In 1974 moved to Costa Rica where he established a Citrus farm near the Nicaraguan Border.

He was now ideally placed for the Contra counter revolution that followed the successful 1979 FSLN revolution in Nicaragua.

______________________

Jones claims to have been initially approached by Commandante Zero, Eden Pastora, in March 1982. He is from this time described as a key liasion between the Contras and the CIA. He himself says "We" agreed and two months later the CIA were supplying the goods.

Presumably, He (and Hull) then supplied the Cocaine and hence Crack that went a long way to destroying many lives, primarily young urban african americans. While many users are also white, it is the blacks who feed the Prison Industrial Complex, a huge, extremely profitable grouping that by its existance serves to drive wages down to poverty levels.(powder carries a lesser sentence than crack, (ask Bush) and blacks tend to be the crack users)

When the Congress officially cut CIA support, other organisations stepped in, including Soldier of Fortune* and the Alabama based CMA (civilian military assistance).

"Brown, Robert Kenneth"; p. 77

"An army captain stationed at Ft. Benning, Georgia, in December 1963 Brown told FBI agents that he had been active in anti-Castro activities for several years. His activities included visits to National States Rights Party headquarters in Los Angeles, where members discussed the need to eliminate '[President] Kennedy, the Cabinet, all the members of the Americans for Democratic Action and maybe 10,000 other people.' Brown's statements were revealed during the probe of President John F. Kennedy's death." [90]

"Drennan, Dr. Stanley L."; p. 170

"Identified as a leader of the National States Rights Party in North Hollywood, California, in the 1960s, Drennan was active with army Captain Robert Brown and others in covert campaigns against Fidel Castro. According to FBI reports filed in December 1963, Drennan once told Brown that 'what the organization needed was a group of young men to get rid of [President John F.] Kennedy, the Cabinet, and all the members of the Americans for Democratic Action, and maybe ten thousand other people.' According to the FBI, Brown 'gained the impression that Drennan may have been propositioning him on this matter.' Possible connections between the National States Rights Party and Kennedy's assassination were not pursued by the Warren Commission...." [90]

"Helm, Jack"; p. 263

"Appointed as grand klaliff for the Louisiana realm, United Klans of America, in 1965, Helm replaced James Edwards as grand dragon early the following year. His reign was short-lived, and internal dissension led him to resign in March 1967.... On February 23, 1967, a few days before making his break with the United Klans, Helm and Klansman Jules Kimble reportedly visited the New Orleans apartment of Kennedy assassination suspect David Ferrie. (Ferrie, an associate of Lee Harvey Oswald and New Orleans Mafia boss Carlos Marcello, had died the previous day, from a 'stroke.') According to Kimble, Helm removed a valise filled with documents from Ferrie's apartment, and took them to a local bank, where they

were stored in a safe deposit box. The documents in question were never retrieved." [21; 38]

[38] House Committee on Un-American Activities. The Present-Day Ku Klux Klan Movement. Washington, D.C.: U.S. Government Printing Office, 1967.

"Kimble, Jules Ricco"; p. 316

"An admitted Klansman in New Orleans, Kimble was also a key witness for District Attorney Jim Garrison's 1967 probe of the John Kennedy assassination. Kimble testified that he drove Jack Helm --- former Louisiana grand dragon for the United

Klans of America and later chief of his own Universal Klans --- to the home of Minuteman and assassination suspect David Ferrie on the day after Ferrie's death, watching Helm remove a valise filled with papers that were taken to a bank safe

deposit box. Kimble also claimed to have flown errands for the Minutemen to Montreal, Canada, working occasionally under contract for the CIA. The witness vanished briefly after giving Garrison his statement, and was traced by investigators to Atlanta and Montreal before his ultimate arrest as a material witness in Tampa, Florida. By that time, Canadian newsmen were speculating on a possible New Orleans link between Kimble and James Earl Ray in the murder of Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr. In 1978, a congressional committee probing both assassinations confirmed Kimble's 'extensive criminal record" and Klan connections, but no link with the King assassination was established. The committee did not address Kimble's allegations concerning Ferrie and Helm." [21; 39]

[21] Flammonde, Paris. The Kennedy Conspiracy. New York: Meredith Press, 1969

this then establishes a clear line of sight from the contras to the White Supremacist right wing in Texas and Louisiana, specifically the Birchers and the KKK..

"Senator Kerry. And those weapons and explosives were coming into the airstrips - yours. Correct?

Jones' association with Commandante Cero (eden Pastora) came to an end in may 1984 when Pastora refused CIA demands that he work with former officers of Samoza's National Guard (Hated for their terrorising of the people of Nicaragua doing such things as rolling drums of fuel from Helicopters into slums and setting them alight, rounding up young people and shooting them in large numbers etc (there was a simple way of differentiating between victims of the FSLN and the National Guard, the National Guard victims were tortured as well as shot)) Jones hitched up with Fernando Chamorra instead who had no such scruples. Pastora said "He (Jones) is The Company(CIA)"

Chamorra

Does this mean "The Company" that Crone speaks of as being the farm that Jones is a coowner of is part owned by the CIA. IOW does this mean that the CIA funded (at least partly) the purchase of the land in 1975? If so it would be clear that Jones at this point was CIA. IOW, he was there because of the CIA. It was his assignment. Therefore he is CIA while in the USA. He was 18 in 1963. The SDS was formed in 1962.

At which poiunt did he become an asset?

At which point did he start working with Hull?

When in the SDS, what name did he use?

Is he known by other names? Does he have a middle name?

What is he doing today?

La Conya is a strange name. I can find lots of pages in spanish that has the words, but nothing in english that clearly defines it except as a slang for 'xxxx'. What does La Conya mean? Was Crone telling Senator Kerry to 'p off''?

I find it interesting that any discussion about Hull neglects to mention Bruce Jones. Here is a CIA asset in place in Costa Rica since 1974, (supporting other brief mentions of drugs and somoza pre revolution ie in the 70's) yet left out of the Conra discussions which focus on the 80's +. He was a part of the Pastora assassination attempt, yet is lumped in the 'one of' category. There must be more to him than that. The early sixties SDS involvement ties him to the contemprary scene of the assassination of Kennedy.

As early as 1962 Fidel Castro had this to say (keywords Costa Rica and Drugs)

http://lanic.utexas.edu/la/cb/cuba/castro.html

1962 SPEECH CASTRO ADDRESSES UES CONGRESS

"Today they leave, these bourgeois. They are not interested in having their children virtuous. They are not interested in having them uncorrupted. It appears that today they have demonstrated that bourgeois virtues and bourgeois morals were very weak and very poor. In our country today the gambling dens are gone. Vices--all those unbridled vices--are gone. In our country all vices from gambling to prostitution are disappearing. Nevertheless, the bourgeois are taking their children out of a country which cleanses itself from all those vices, a country which develops the best virtues in its youth, and takes them to a country where all the vices of the world seek refuge, where all the corruption of the world finds its final home; where gambling, vice, drugs, and prostitution are rampant and juvenile delinquency is rampant, where growing crime waves and disturbed youth are rampant.

That is where they go. They are not concerned that their children may become criminals or victims of crime. They are not worried that their daughters may be corrupted and perhaps turned into prostitutes. All the former owners of cabarets went to the United States with the bourgeois as did the owners of casinos, dope smugglers, brothel owners, thieves of all sorts, degenerates of all types, and drug addicts. "What have they done in Miami? What have they done in Costa Rica? What have they done in Panama? What have they done in Venezuela? They have taken to those places their drug businesses, their brothels, their casinos. According to a story told us by some comrades from Costa Rica, the rise in prostitution in the capital of that country is extraordinary under some very illustrious exiles."

"very illustrious exiles"

In Costa Rica in 1962:: Who are these? Do they form a nucleus that gave rise to the 1980's drug-Contras?

There's a gap to fill here.

We have Costa Rica and the transfer of vice-interests to there from Cuba in 1962.

Then we have in 1982 clear emergence of drug trafficing sponsored by the CIA. Hull, Jones and the Contras.

In between there are odd mentions of such things happening during the Somoza years pre revolution.

In 1974 Bruce Jones travels to Costa Rica and buys a farm near the Nicaraguan Border.

Is it possible to fill in the intervening years with a connected history that establishes clearly that these are not unreated events?

"It was also later discovered that at about the time of the trial the National Security Council was setting up its special computer network and was distributing computers to CIA agents in Central America to insure rapid and secure communication with Washington."

"Hull's business partner Bruce Jones"

I say (shout) STOP IGNORING BRUCE JONES!! There are questions in need of answering, that in the process can supply others. Here is a character who has a knowable early sixties history, a known precence in Costa Rica in 1974, and a known 80's history. He ties things together, the gaps are in need of filling. Is he today the multi millionaire Florida entrepeneur? Where is he today? Who was he in the sixties?

Is he part of the southern, Misissippi Jones'. Is he part of the Jones' tied to Beckham? His backers are tied to Alabama KKK and through SOF magazine to Minutemen etc etc etc...

In his living room a personal computer sits atop a stack of...back issues of Soldier of Fortune. Some of his neighbours are other 'jungle farmers' attracted by the cheap fertile land.

EDIT:: response to below: I'm trying to distill the essentials while adding something new that comes to mind through other posts etc. Once it gets a bit clearer I'll put together it all in one minus the speculative components, tangents of possible research etc and hopefully with questions answered. I suppose then I could delete all the other repetitions to help people go to just the latest and most current posting. On the other hand it's a history of a 'work in progress'. Thank's for the input, Thomas.

The above link is of Warren Commission CD 64.1 FBI's SA Harding Report of 04/Dec/1963, which reads as follows:

Captain ROBERT KENNETH BROWN, The School Brigade, Fort Benning, Georgia, advised that he had been active in Cuban matters for several years and during the Spring of 1963, in connection

with anti-Castro activity, he was in contact with the National States Right's Party in Los Angeles, California.

In connection with this, he contacted Dr. STANLEY L. DRENNAN, 375 Wonderview Drive, North Hollywood, California, who was active in the National States Right's Party. BROWN stated that once while a guest in Dr. DRENNAN's home, DRENNAN stated in general conversation that he could not do it, but what the organization needed was a group of young men to get rid og KENNEDY, the Cabinet and all members of Americans for Democratic Action and maybe 10,000 other people. BROWN stated that he considered the remark as being "crackpot;" however, as DRENNAN continued the conversation, he gained the impression that DRENNAN may have been propositioning him on this matter.

BROWN stated that he is a Reserve Officer and free-lance writer and has been to Cuba several times. He stated that prior to 1960, he was pro-Castro. He stated that he related his conversation with DRENNAN to STEVE WILSON, free lance writer, Miami, Florida.

BROWN stated that he was again in contact with DRENNAN during the Summer of 1963 and DRENNAN revealed he had been interviewed by the Secret Service concerning his remarks.

Captain ROBERT KENNETH BROWN, The School Brigade, Fort Benning, Georgia, advised that he had been active in Cuban matters for several years and during the Spring of 1963, in connection

with anti-Castro activity, he was in contact with the National States Right's Party in Los Angeles, California.

In connection with this, he contacted Dr. STANLEY L. DRENNAN, 375 Wonderview Drive, North Hollywood, California, who was active in the National States Right's Party. BROWN stated that once while a guest in Dr. DRENNAN's home, DRENNAN stated in general conversation that he could not do it, but what the organization needed was a group of young men to get rid of KENNEDY, the Cabinet and all members of Americans for Democratic Action and maybe 10,000 other people. BROWN stated that he considered the remark as being "crackpot;" however, as DRENNAN continued the conversation, he gained the impression that DRENNAN may have been propositioning him on this matter.

BROWN stated that he is a Reserve Officer and free-lance writer and has been to Cuba several times. He stated that prior to 1960, he was pro-Castro. He stated that he related his conversation with DRENNAN to STEVE WILSON, free lance writer, Miami, Florida.

BROWN stated that he was again in contact with DRENNAN during the Summer of 1963 and DRENNAN revealed he had been interviewed by the Secret Service concerning his remarks.

"Senator Kerry. And those weapons and explosives were coming into the airstrips - yours. Correct?

Mr. Crone. Well, no, it's not mine. It's the company's.

Senator Kerry. The company's.

Mr. Crone. A company.

Senator Kerry. A company. What was the name of the company?

Mr. Crone. La Conya."

Jones' association with Commandante Cero (eden Pastora) came to an end in may 1984 when Pastora refused CIA demands that he work with former officers of Samoza's National Guard (Hated for their terrorising of the people of Nicaragua doing such things as rolling drums of fuel from Helicopters into slums and setting them alight, rounding up young people and shooting them in large numbers etc (there was a simple way of differentiating between victims of the FSLN and the National Guard, the National Guard victims were tortured as well as shot)) Jones hitched up with Fernando Chamorra instead who had no such scruples. Pastora said "He (Jones) is The Company(CIA)"

Does this mean "The Company" that Crone speaks of as being the farm that Jones is a coowner of is part owned by the CIA. IOW does this mean that the CIA funded (at least partly) the purchase of the land in 1975? If so it would be clear that Jones at this point was CIA. IOW, he was there because of the CIA. It was his assignment. Therefore he is CIA while in the USA. He was 18 in 1963. The SDS was formed in 1962.

At which poiunt did he become an asset?

At which point did he start working with Hull?

When in the SDS, what name did he use?

Is he known by other names? Does he have a middle name?

What is he doing today?

La Conya is a strange name. I can find lots of pages in spanish that has the words, but nothing in english that clearly defines it except as a slang for 'xxxx'. What does La Conya mean? Was Crone telling Senator Kerry to 'p off''?

Hulls business partner, Jones, (connected to S.O.F. magazine) relocated to Costa Rica in mid 1970's, ostensibly to farm. In fact some of the landing strips used by the C.I.A. contra supplies were on his farm. Further, he trained the Contras and led ops into Nicaragua since early 1980's. Commandate Zero, Eden Pastora told him of his intention to not support the 'united' contra actions, and Jones severed their relationship, soon after the Pastora explosion occurred. Bruce Jones remains one of the least mentioned and known of the '29', yet played central roles. Further he has ties to the sixties and his invilvement with the S.D.S.. He also went to Wisconsin University where other persons of intrerest have been mentioned attending. After leaving Uni. he became involved in the electronics industry in California. He appears to have been one of the first of the 'wired' C.I.A. connected operators.

Where is he today. Is he the Jones who is a millionaire in Jebs Florida? Where is he?
