CONSPIRACY THEORY WEDNESDAY

WELL, WELL, well, here we are…at the end of the long and winding road, having worked our way through a tangled, convoluted web of detail to the conclusion of the conspiracy theory known as COUP D’ETAT. We’ve found ourselves on the streets of Chicago, New York and in Texas, Cuba and Russia.  This is the 35th and last installment; it’s taken nearly 9 months to reach it, sort of like giving birth to a new truth!

For those of you who would like to go back and re-read some of the steps we took to get here, you can do so by clicking on Conspiracy Theory Wednesday in my category column on the home page.  For those of you who are still dis-believers, I say, “Go to another source, use Google and type in the names, places and incidents that have been chronicled here these past many weeks and you will SEE that herein lies the truth.

Lyndon Johnson‘s political career was mired in corruption.  In 1946, he got a local official to certify 200 fake ballots, literally stealing the election to become U.S> Senator by 87 votes.  In 1949, a tv newsman investigating Texas votee fraud was killed.  In 1952, his assassin wwas found hanged in his jail cell after he offered to reveal teh location of the missing frudulent ballots.

Two scandals rocked Johnson’s vice-presidency.  First was his involement with Texas wheeker-dealer Billie Sol Estes, who frudulently colledcted millions in federal agricultural subisides for non-existent cotton farms.    In 1985, Estes testified that Johnson had ordered the death of Henry Marshall, who had been investigating the scam.  Then came the exposure of links between Johnson aide Bobby Baker and Irving Davidson, the Murchisons, the teamsters, and Carlos Marcello.  It is alleged that during the 1950’s  Senator Johnson recieved $500,00 in cash from Marcello’s racing wire and slot machine profits in return for killing anti-racketeering legislation.

Johnson’s long time mistress Madeleine Brown claimed Johnson told her Kennedy’s death was “ordered by American oil men and the CIA“, and he knew of it in advance.  Whatever the truth of these allegations, within hour s of becoming president, Johnson made Texas officials halt their inquiry and turn all their evidence over the FBI, thus putting the investigation into the hands of his old friend, J. Edgar Hoover, who promptly stopped FBI participation in the Attorney General’s probe of Baker’s mob ties.  In January 1964, Johnson made Hoover FBI Director for life.  Later, his Executive Order 11652 locked assassination evidence in the National Archives until the year 2039.

One would have to ask themselves, “Why”?

J. Edgar Hoover - The Untouchable

You can’t get much closer to the truth (?) than you will today because by this time next week we will have reached the conclusion of the conspiracy theory, COUP D”ETAT.  Over the past several months, week by week,  inch by convoluted inch the theory has taken us on a path leading to the highest offices in the land.  Haven’t you been amazed at the array of characters and players in this unfolding tale.  Gangsters, CIA, Mafia, FBI, politicians, actresses, dictators and the list goes on….This week’s title: The Untouchable and  I don’ t mean Elliot Ness!  Who was the most untouchable of all – J. Edgar Hoover.

The Untouchable

J. Edgar Hoover hated the Kennedys and refused to cooperate with them in their crackdown on organized crime, because, in his opinion, organized crime didn’t exist. Yet he spent his vacations gambling at Delmar racetrack and relaxing at the Del Charro motel, notorious hangouts for top-level mobsters (and both owned by his pals, the Texas Murchisons), and he often met privately with Mafia “Prime Minister” Frank Costello.  It has been alleged that Hoover had a secret hit squad of mob assassins recruited with Costello’s help.  The day after Kennedy died, the FBI taped gangster Chuckie Inglese telling his boss, Sam Giancano, “two months from now the FBI will be like it was five years ago.  They won’t be around no more.”

Hoover’s power resided in the confidential files.  During the  Warren Commission Investigation, for instance, he collected derogatory materials on Commission members and their staff.  He also investigated the sex lives of prominent people, especially homosexuals, but ironically, it is rumored that Hoover’s own alleged  homosexuality may have subjected him to blackmail by gangster, Meyer Lansky.

Private corporations, government, and the media were infiltrated with ex-FBI agents who, while no longer on the payroll, remained loyal to Hoover.  This may shed light on the true role of ex-FBI agents like Guy Bannister, William Harvey, Robert Maheu, Jim Garrison, and Secret Service Chief James Rowley.  The true nature of FBI links to Lee Harvey Oswald and Jack Ruby have never been revealed, but there certainly were ties between the FBI and both men, and by controlling the investigation, Hoover was in a position to obscure the trail of the assassins.

Week 33 with just 2 more installments, are you still with me? If you are just viewing this blog for the first time and are interested in the conspiracy theory called COUP D’ETAT, you can click on the category Conspiracy Theory Wednesday on my home page and read this twisting and incriminating tale from the beginning.  Who REALLY killed John F. Kennedy? Who had the most to gain through his death? Whose power and fortunes were threatened by this young energetic leader? You don’t REALLY believe ONE person pulled it off, do you? And Lee Harvey Oswald???

The Arranger

A registered Washington lobbyist for the Teamsters and a friend of Jimmy Hoffa, I. Irving Davidson had a vast international network of connections, and called himself, “the grease for the machinery”.  His business card read”Door Opener and Arranger”.  Among his seemingly diverse clients were: the CIA; Coca-Cola; Fidel Castro; the family dictatorships of Nicaragua (the Samozas); the Dominican Republic (the Trujillos); and Haiti (the Duvaliers); the oil rich Murchison family of Dallas; and Mafiosa Carlos Marcello.  The close twenty year relationship between Davidson and Marcello ended in 1981 when the two were indited in the wire and mail fraud case that finally snared Marcello.  Davidson’s acquittal and the fact that he had introduced Marcello to the government sting operator who caught them, suggests that he set up his Mafia friend.

Through Hoffa, Davidson arranged a Teamster Pension Fund loan to the Murchisons. who shared with Davidson a close mutual friend, J. Edgar Hoover.  Davidson arranged another deal for the Murchisons which resulted in a large pay-off to the then Senator Lyndon Johnson‘s close aide and bag-man, Bobby Baker.  Part of the Johnson-Baker set was Bedford Wynne, whose law firm represented George de Mohrenschildt, the Murchisons and controlled the Great South West Corporation.

Clint Murchison Sr. liked to gamble, and frequented the Four Deuces club, where he played high-stakes poker with fellow gamblers like H.L. Hunt, Senator Rayburn, and Lyndon Johnson. The club’s owner, W.C. Kirkwood, a man with unquestioned access to Johnson, was a friend and former employer of Jack Ruby‘s idol, Lewis J. McWillie.

Reading these names gives me the willies – Jack Ruby, Lyndon Johnson, Jimmy Hoffa, this is scary stuff!!!

GODDESS

With just a few weeks left till we conclude the conspiracy theory, COUP D’ETAT, we are getting closer and closer to the middle of this tangled web.  Over the weeks,  it has been unraveling; naming names, linking criminals to government departments, explaining connections and always inching closer and closer to the highest government level.

John Kennedy’s affair with CIA agent Cord Meyer‘s wife Mary led to experiments with marijuana and LSD, but the most famous of the 32 presidential paramours tallied by J. Edgar Hoover was actress Marilyn Monroe, who was also the lover of Robert Kennedy.  Her August 5, 1962 death, ruled suicide, was linked to these dangerous liasons, which had been observed by several interested parties.  John and Marilyn often met in the home of the president’s brother-in-law, Peter Lawford, whose house had been wired during the 1960 campaign by GOP “consultants”.  Later, Monroe’s home was bugged for wireman Bernard Spindell, whose usual employer was Jimmy Hoffa.  The Monroe tapes haven’t been made public, but according to many accounts they contain intimacies with the Kennedys, pro-Castro arguments, and support for ousting J. Edgar Hoover. Most significantly they record a visit from Robert on the day of Monroe’s death, during which the pair argued heatedly.  She felt she had been used and dumped by both Kennedys.  Knowledge of this last visit would have been a powerful blackmail tool against Robert even if he had nothing to do with her death.

One person who acquired leverage as a result of the tragedy was Hoover, who immediately confiscated Monroe’s phone records on Robert’s orders.  Hoover was hardy a disinterested party, he considered Monroe a security risk and had watched her for years because of her friendships with “communists”.  Her voluminous FBI files re mostly classified but it is said they record sex orgies with John, Robert,L A. Police Chief William Parker, and other women…and state she was pregnant by Robert and had an abortion before she died.

Conspiracy Theory Wednesday

I wonder how many readers of this blog are wondering when is she going to stop with this conspiracy thing? Well here’s the answer – this is week 29 of our delving into COUP D’ETAT which is what this theory has been called.  I know you know the meaning of the phrase BUT just in case there is someone  out there who does not, let me explain; Coup d’etat; “the sudden overthrow of a government usually by a small group of the existing state establishment…”. We have six more weeks to go and each week now the strands of  information are coming together to form a very tangled web.  We started at the ends (corners) of the web and are working our way to the middle.  As we explore, you see that the names are becoming more and more familiar.  Our middle is the upward climb to power and those that used their power to attain more power, ultimately a Coup d’etat.

I’m not alone in this long-held belief that President Kennedy’s murder was planned, plotted and executed by a group of individuals who had much to gain if John F. Kennedy were out of power and out of the picture.  Last week the New York Post featured an article about the auction of note handwritten by Evelyn Lincoln, John F. Kennedy’s personal secretary wherein she names possible suspects behind his assassination.  This historical piece of ephemera is estimated to sell for $30,000!! The link to the article is below.

FUTURE TARGET – ROBERT KENNEDY

When Robert Kennedy became Attorney General in 1961, he found FBI Chief J. Edgar Hoover uncooperative with his anti-crime campaign, so he formed his own intelligence unit, initiating massive illegal wire-tap operations against James Hoffa, Carlos Marcello and other mobsters, and political enemies such as State Department Security Evaluator Otto Otepka, who had rejected several Kennedy appointments as security risks.  Although Robert Kennedy had once worked for Joseph McCarthy and Otepka assisted the McCarthy-inspired Senate Subcommittee on Internal Security, in mid-1963 Otepka was suddenly moved to a less sensitive post, and his safe was drilled open.  Inside was found a study on American defectors to the U.S.S.R., including Lee Harvey Oswald, on whom Otepka hadfailed to issue a State Department “look-out card”.

While Robert may have suspected conspiracy in his brother’s death, he never publicly challenged the FBI’s findings.  Meanwhile, Hoover removed his private phone link to the Attorney General and did not speak to him for the next six months, after which Robert left his post.  Four years later, on the verge of capturing the Democratic nomination for the 1968 presidential race, Robert was killed by another lone nut, Sirhan Sirhan.  He may have taken to his grave the secret of his brother’s missing brain, which was removed (along with photos and 119 slides of tissue section) from the autopsy materials  before 1967, probably on orders from Robert himself, according to the HSCA.  Did he take this evidence into safe-keeping because he intended, once he became President, to reveal a conspiracy cover-up?

David Ferrie

Week 14 of the unraveling mysterious and complex conspiracy theory about the assassination of President John F. Kennedy.

DAVID FERRIE

The strongest denizen of 544 Camp Street ws former Eastern Airlines pilot, David Ferrie, who, as a contract employee of the CIA, flew dozens of clandestine missions to Cuba around the time of the 1961 Bay of Pigs invasion.  A bishop in an obscure sect called Orthodox Old Catholic Church of North America, and a master hypnotist, Ferrie suffered from a rare condition of hairlessness called Alopecia for which he compensated with grotesquely false eyebrows and toupee.  He worked closely with Banister’s anti-Castro operations, one time leading a CIA-staged “raid” (they had the key) on a bunker containing explosives allegedly given o the Schlumberger  Corporation byt he CIA for the ultra-right French Secret Army Organization (OAS) to use in a 1962 coup attempt against French President Charles De Gaulle.  The raid allegedly enabled the CIA to supply Cuban exile terrorists while Kennedy’s ban on such activities was in effect.

That Oswald and Ferrie knew each other is certain.  When Lee was 16 he joined the local Civil Air Patrol unit led by Captain Ferrie (who was discharged from Eastern because of  his homosexual liasions with teen-age boys).  In September 1963, they were seen together at a federally supported black voter registration drive in Clinton, LA.  The evening of Kennedy’s death, Ferrie drove through a thunderstorm to Houston, where he spent hours at a skating rink making and receiving phone calls.  According to a friend, he was to have picked up tow members of a hit team who never showed up.  The FBI questioned Ferrie  a few days later, but the interview was first classified by J. Edgar Hoover and later disappeared.


Just remember, a conspiracy is not always a theory!
