Three Authors On America's Occult Government

(Below) From history.com - Nixon Releases Audio Tapes: Armed with damning testimony including Nixon's own statements on tape, Congress began the official impeachment process (Photo Credit: Bettmann/CORBIS)

We have recently come across a trio of authors who are perhaps only related in this author’s mind but who shed important light on America’s post war political economy. One deals with Nixon and Watergate, another with the Bush dynasty, and another with American Empire. The fascinating aspect about these authors and their stories is that they are respectable establishment types who are not considered to be on the fringe of intellectual society. On the other hand, those of us steeped in the occultic nature of our government will find little new revelation. Nonetheless we highly encourage examinations of their works.

The first author is Len Colodny whose seminal book Silent Coup was a best seller when published in 1991. He made the argument that Nixon was removed from power by subversive forces in his own administration with special thanks to the traitors Alexander Haig and John Dean. Dean along with Bob Woodward, who gave us the Deep Throat deceptions, has dominated the understanding and interpretation of Watergate and Nixon’s villainy in the affair. Colodny originally exculpated Nixon as an unwilling participant manipulated by forces more focused than himself but has since recanted of that view based upon new information from Nixon’s tapes. His current thesis is that Nixon took an active role in the cover-up while John Dean thought that he could throw Nixon under the bus to save his own hide. Dean prevailed while Nixon was thrown to the sharks. They both participated in obstruction of justice with Nixon directly handling the cover up in March of 1973.

None of the foregoing alters our thesis that the CIA engineered the political assassination of Richard Nixon because of his unwillingness to mind his masters. This is where our next author, Russ Baker picks up the story in his book Family of Secrets. He shows that the Bush’s going back to Prescott Bush have established powerful intelligence connections and with other oligarchs of the occult have much of American power structures in a vice grip. He shows George H. W. Bush’s mysterious presence in Dallas on the day of Kennedy’s assassination, his Zapata Oil Company which was a front for intelligence work and many other associations related to the CIA. Long time readers of these Chronicles know that we extend the thesis further by asserting an involvement by the Bush’s in the Kennedy assassination.

The final author of note is Chalmers Johnson who has sterling credentials as a former professor at the University of California Berkeley who was a Far East affairs expert who then started his own consulting firm in said matters after retiring from his academic position. He was a Cold Warrior who came to alter his position fundamentally after work with the CIA and further study of the Soviet phenomenon. One of his first disturbing observations is that the CIA so missed the boat on the crack-up of the USSR that he wondered what the CIA was doing with all of its funding.

He was further alarmed by the continued bellicosity of the United States following the demise of the USSR. Surely its dissolution would justify a peace dividend which was briefly discussed at the time. However with over 1000 bases around the world – and hundreds of them acquired after 1991 – he began to develop his thesis that America has turned from a republic to an Empire just as did Rome.

Strangely enough the CIA and its paymasters had the same thesis about themselves. In fact, one former CIA asset, an erstwhile preacher named Robert Thieme, jr. fulminated at great length about the need for the United States to transform itself from republic to an Empire because we had long outgrown that structure of government which was no longer suitable for the Cold War.

So Johnson has caught up with Colonel Thieme in his view of the American century but takes the opposite position that this is bad for our country and is causing its political, economical, and social exhaustion. Watching interviews of Johnson done five years ago  so eerily sound as though they were done this year (2009) because of his prescient anticipation of the economic crises we would face.

Although there is nothing new of substance in these books they each show different angles of the hidden powers and agendas which rule America which superficial students of American history usually overlook. They are worth reading especially by those who think that folks such as those publishing the The American Chronicle are possibly kooks.

McGeorge Bundy and the Assassination of John Kennedy

McGeorge Bundy was not exactly a household name among Americans even during his tenure as National Security Advisor to President Kennedy and later to Lyndon Johnson. However, we have documented evidence showing a pattern of activity which places him near the inner circle of men who ordered the murder of Kennedy on November 22, 1963.

Commentary Magazine famously linked Bundy with George F. Kenan as co-author of a seminal paper outlining the United States’ need to maintain eternal vigilance against its communist foes in a policy subsequently known as containment. We could say that Bundy at one time belonged to the old Henry Jackson wing of the Democrat party which acknowledged the need for military preparedness and did not see America as the evil boogey man of self loathing of the modern Democrat establishment.

Born to a prominent, privileged, and wealthy Boston Brahmin family Bundy was educated at elite schools. After graduation from Yale he worked in policy and academic positions including the Council on Foreign Relations and Harvard University. After his stint in government in the 1960s he became president of the Ford Foundation and later professor of history at New York University. He always maintained an influential role in the Democrat party as well as in foreign policy think tanks.

With such a dignified background we can see how he would fit well in government and indeed as a former classmate of John Kennedy in grade school he seemed a natural choice to the new President as a national security advisor. Although Bundy comes across as a mid to high ranking administration official his influence far exceeded his position. His true paymasters were not the President but the power elite of institutions from which he owed his allegiances.

With such a relatively low profile, it seems improbable that Bundy would be palpably involved with the murder of his boss but as we pull the evidence together it become abundantly clear that he was positioned to make astoundingly important decisions which were important in the sabotaging of the Kennedy administration and in taking the man’s life. It is the classic tale of Julius Caesar whose immortal line, et tu Brute, could be said to apply aptly to Bundy.

We reported in a previous Daily Jeremiad how McGeorge Bundy unilaterally acted to rescind a decision which President Kennedy made earlier on Sunday April 16, 1961 authorizing the Bay Of Pigs invasion which included a pre-dawn attack on Castro’s 3 remaining T-33 jet aircraft. The story of the Bay of Pigs has been both written about and misreported extensively. However we show that Bundy was the man who called off the air attack without consultation or authority from the President. Amazingly Bundy managed to keep his position because whether through naivety or impressive tap dancing from Bundy, Kennedy chose to believe that Bundy was not responsible in any sinister way for the sabotaging of the attack. Instead Kennedy vented his wrath toward the CIA. However much involved the CIA was in undermining its own operations, Bundy’s role was even more important in part because of its subtle nature.

The effects of the failed Bay Of Pigs invasion was the creation of animosity towards Kennedy from the Cuban Exiles specifically but from conservative Americans generally who saw the president as weak, ineffectual, and pink. Thus the willful compromise of the invasion cost Kennedy considerable political capital – all achieved by a vaguely worded communiqué from Bundy to the CIA operations officers, of whom Richard Bissel and General Cabell were chief, telling them that they “should not” launch the air attack on the T-33s.

All of the foregoing could be dismissed as innocent incompetence if it were an isolated event. However, given the details we present elsewhere such a conclusion is unwarranted especially in the case of Bundy who has been acknowledged far and wide as a brilliant man who suffered fools contemptuously. These types of actions of Bundy were not isolated. To see the pattern we must fast forward to November 21, 1963.

At this time we again see Bundy undermining his boss. In October of 1963 Kennedy issued NSAM 263 ordering the CIA and Military to remove all US personnel from Indochina by 1965. The first down payment of that action was the ordered removal of 1000 personnel by Christmas of 1963. But strangely enough a draft NSAM countermanding NSAM 263 was discovered circulating 11/21 by none other than our faithful public servant McGeorge Bundy. This new document known as NSAM 273 would be signed by President Johnson on November 26, 1963.

This raises the interesting question of why would Kennedy reverse himself so soon after the issuance of orders to begin withdrawal? Well the answer is rather simple. Kennedy had not reversed himself but his NSA advisor had reversed him because Bundy’s superiors ordered the reversal of policy. And if you are not alert to subtlety Bundy’s superior was not the President of the United States.

Bundy had already shown in a very high profile situation willingness and capacity to countermand the president. But to repeat ourselves, Bundy did not do this because he was calling the shots – he did so on orders of his superiors. As brilliant and gifted as was Bundy his mental constitution and other qualities did not make him leadership caliber although he certainly advised such people. Bundy showed the same weasely traits John Dean would show in his treason against President Nixon.

In repetition of the Bay of Pigs behavior Bundy crafted new policy in the President’s name without authorization or guidance from Kennedy. Between 11/21 and 11/25 NSAM 273 went through several drafts, as Colonel Fletcher Prouty demonstrates, being ready for Johnson’s signature on the 26th. Thus a 180 degree reversal of US foreign policy had been achieved in about 40 days’ time from the issuance of NSAM 263. That is called a coup d’etat. There is no innocent explanation for it. It was treason pure and simple with Bundy playing an important role in the policy change.

What this change also implies is Bundy’s advance notice of the murder of Kennedy. It is conceivable that Bundy received a request to draft a new policy from someone in the administration and our current view is that Bundy did so in anticipation of a new President. We may change our opinion when we better understand the reporting structures in the Kennedy White House.

Another area fertile for study is the Yale Cabal and its relationship to US intelligence and the Kennedy assassination. We will titillate you just a bit by noting that others have observed a strong relationship between Yale University and the CIA and its predecessor organization. Such central managers as James Jesus Angleton, George Bush, and William Buckley along with our primary subject McGeorge Bundy all claim Yale as their alma mater. They are tied together in a blood pact to govern the United States whether they hold office or not – the elite will not be ruled over by the plebeian.

Who Was Lee Oswald?

Veteran scholar of the John Kennedy Assassination Joan Mellen has published another ground breaking study documenting Lee Harvey Oswald’s deep connections to US intelligence. She is perhaps best known for her work on Jim Garrison’s cutting edge investigations into the Kennedy assassination when he was district attorney for New Orleans. Her recent article, Who Was Lee Harvey Oswald?, demolishes the Warren Commission’s pack of lies stating that Oswald was a lone sociopath. He was most emphatically not the president’s assassin.

Mellen of course is not presenting any new fundamental information but she has meticulously documented some obvious ties which Oswald had with US intelligence during the 1950s and 1960s starting with his tour with the Marines. Although Mellen does not cover all of Oswald’s intelligence connections she presents some of the more salient ones including his work for the CIA, FBI, and US Customs Intelligence while ommitting his US Naval Intelligence work. Two bits of explosive information provided include Oswald’s espionage work in the USSR plus his very high status as an intelligence agent.

This picture is totally at variance with the Warren Commission which spends relatively little space on Oswald out of the 26 volumes it issued to obfuscate and confuse the American public. The Commission completely hacks Oswald in the most shameful and deceitful manner in order to concoct the absurd story that Oswald single handedly assassinated JFK from the 6th floor of the Texas School Book Depository on November 22, 1963.

We will not detail the ludicrousness of that story as others have thoroughly dismantled it elsewhere. The important point is that Oswald successfully entered and exited the USSR during the uber height of the Cold War; was debriefed by the CIA upon his return; married a high ranking KGB officer’s daughter; was known to be affiliated with many intelligence agencies; knew Jack Ruby; and held many menial jobs with their own interesting relationships. This is hardly the profile of a lone sociopath. If you want to see a sociopath, study the Columbine murderers who were more than likely MK Ultra victims.

What this means is that the CIA was directly involved in the Kennedy assassination cover up. I assert that it was directly involved in its planning and execution as well. The great pains which the CIA took to cover up its connections to Oswald are rather astounding considering that Oswald was supposed to be a deranged loner.

The case against the CIA was established convincingly by Garrison and corroborated with additional evidence by Joan Mellen. There is no smoking gun to be sought. As in any other complex crime, the weight of the evidence need merely be assembled to establish the basis for conviction. Garrison and Mellen have done this. The endless navel gazing over the identity of the Kennedy killers can stop and trivial pursuit of arcane evidence can desist. Oswald was not the President’s murderer. In fact, Oswald was never on the 6th floor of the TSBD nor on the 5th floor from which one of the many shots was fired.

When the Oligarchs determined to murder Kennedy, Oswald was a convenient patsy who had been prepped by months of careful manipulation by his CIA handlers to take the rap. Oswald spake sooth when he declared that he was just the patsy.

As for the immediate case of the CIA and Oswald my thesis is thus– Oswald was sent to the USSR to provide technical information so that the Soviets could shoot down Gary Powers in order to sabotage Eisenhower’s détente initiatives. Eisenhower briefed JFK on this episode which resulted in his brother Robert developing a keen interest in Oswald so that the Kennedys could monitor CIA activity against them. This probably explains in part Kennedy’s wish to splinter the CIA although certainly the Bay of Pigs must factor into their distrust of that dark organization. Because RFK feared that his very early knowledge of Oswald would be exposed by Garrison’s investigation, he went full out to destroy it by unleashing his attack hack Walter Sheridan against Garrison. Whether he did this to prevent political embarrassment or because he feared CIA retaliation is something yet to be determined.

The 45th anniversary of Kennedy’s assassination finds us making great strides in the resolution of this national night mare – a night mare perpetuated by very powerful forces within and without government including most notably the press. It is time to throw away the quackery about Lee Oswald being the president's killer and recognize that only an organization with the sophistication and vast resources of the CIA could kill a president.
