Research Note: Testing Claims of Douglas Dietrich

In researching the culpability of Franklin Roosevelt in the bombing of Pearl Harbor, we came across an interesting character by the name of Douglas Dietrich who claimed that
·         Durham White Stevens (1851 – 1908) was an American dictator of Korea after the American Civil War
·         the Japanese had developed an atomic bomb by the end of World War 2
·         the United States sued the Japanese for peace to end World War 2
We reject all of these statements as either false or unsupportable from the historical record.

Dietrich makes many other unconventional statements of equal controversy, and does so in a convincing, at times erudite, fashion. He often challenges his listeners to do the research themselves to prove that he is right. We took up the challenge only to report disappointment for our revisionist historian.
Much of Dietrich’ authority rests upon his alleged access to massive quantities of American official archive documents he was assigned to destroy while a librarian assistant at the Presidio during the 1980s. He states that these documents stretched back to the Spanish American War and were backlogged at the military base by incompetent military and civilian staff who refused to the do the dirty work of destroying the records. Through various connections as a military brat, he obtained his position at the age of 16.
While his stories and analyses are quite entertaining, they often lack any factual basis, or rest upon dubious evidence - Durham Stevens being one such example. More specifically, Dietrich’s claims about Stevens are made to demonstrate that Americans have been brainwashed or its leaders have hidden the truth about their nation’s imperial aggrandizement in Asia, specifically Korea.
Stevens was an obscure American diplomat who served in the State Department in Tokyo after graduation from law school in 1873. In 1883 the Japanese government hired him for its legation in Washington, DC. In 1904 Japan appointed him as foreign advisor to the Emperor of Korea, during which time the New York Times reported that he was known by some as the “American dictator of the Hermit Kingdom.” While visiting San Francisco in 1908, he was assassinated by a group of Korean students from which wounds he died.
The point is that Stevens assumed his Korean post in 1904 – not in the early 1870s as Dietrich reports. More importantly, Stevens was not an American dictator of Korea installed by the American government in a takeover of the country. Rather, he was working for the Japanese when he earned the sobriquet as American dictator, a moniker which the New York Times reported to illustrate the influence he had in Korean affairs on behalf of the Japanese.
Turning to the subject of Japan and World War 2, Dietrich cites an article in the October 3, 1946 Atlanta Constitution reporting that Japan had developed an atomic bomb which it had tested in Konan Korea at the close of World War 2. The author David Snell cites a pseudonymous Japanese Captain Wakabayashi who related details about the Japanese atomic program which had been moved to Korea to avoid the American B29 air raids. Five days after the bombing of Hiroshima, the Japanese detonated their bomb at sea to avoid capture by the Soviets, according to the report filed by Snell who was working with the Army’s 24th Criminal Investigation Detachment.
Snell reported his findings to the US Army intelligence team in Korea which censored details of the information which were contained in the article.
A book entitled Hungnam and the Japanese Atomic Bomb: Recent Historiography of a Postwar Myth by Walter Grunden reviews the claims of the article in detail, along with a review of the Japanese nuclear program, to demonstrate that the story is false.
If Dietrich wishes to credibly contradict the findings of this book and other researchers who failed to substantiate Wakabayashi's story, he needs to produce evidence of greater weight than this 1946 newspaper article.
Dietrich’s larger point that the Japanese detonated the bomb to intimidate the Soviets fails because they occupied the northern part of the Korean peninsula in spite of the alleged detonation.
Regarding the final assertion by Dietrich – that the United States sued Japan for peace – we only offer our pity. The United States has occupied Japan since the end of the war and MacArthur’s vice regency of the island is well documented. The emperor of Japan did not step down because of the Japanese triumph in the war.

News Flash: East West Trade Wars Lead to Dollar Repudiation

Momentous economic developments have been afoot since the Lehman collapse in 2008 among the developing BRIIIC nations to unseat the US dollar as the primary payment vehicle in international trade after suffering enormously from the ruthless corruption of Western banksters.
Jim Willie reports in his Hat Trick newsletter that quiet preparations among Brazil, Russia, India, China, and South Africa, plus Iran and Indonesia for a Eurasian Trade Zone are nearing completion and will draw many other nations into its orbit, including Saudi Arabia and other resource rich nations seeking to break free from imperial American abuse.
The formation of the Eurasian Trade Zone will be accompanied by the establishment of a BRICS Development Fund which will finance large infrastructure projects in partnering nations, a partnership which explicitly excludes the United States, in part due to President Obama’s recent efforts to create the Pacific Partnership which required Japan and South Korea to exclude China. This overstep by the Obama administration inflamed smoldering resentment of imperial American dictats to the region.
The development fund will be financed by US Treasury paper which the Chinese, Japanese, and Russians hold in abundance.  These nations have been working in concert since 2008 to divest themselves of these financial albatrosses which have seen large devaluations and insolvencies. By using them as collateral for financing infrastructure projects, the development fund will return the treasury paper and dollars back to the US for burial, as Willie puts it.
In addition, the BRICS Development Fund will convert Treasury paper into gold, with American and British banks the last holders of these sub-investment grade papers. Germany is the locus of a great political conflict with an established cadre of Western oriented leaders pitted against the emerging Eastern oriented leaders who have forged much of the financial and trading infrastructure of the Eurasian Trade Zone.
The “exorbitant privilege” of which former French president Valerie Giscard d’Estaing spoke in the early 1970s is another source of much of the Eastern animosity. The United States has run enormous trade deficits which are not reflected in currency valuations, but which result in inflation and lost store of value for nations holding the debt and currency. The Greenspan – Bernanke administrations at the Federal Reserve have accelerated the abuse and debasement of the dollar. The United States is seen as unable to pay its debts which will double under the Obama regime.
Easterners are also furious with the continuous and treacherous manipulations of the precious metals markets, FOREX, and SWIFT systems, the latter of which proved to be the final straw provoking revolt against the dollar. The Petro-Dollar will disappear as the Saudis establish bilateral trade agreements with trading nations, possibly to be funded with gold.
Although Willie speaks of a new Gold Trade Note with a “gold core”, we see it as another flop attempt at fiat currency, though it will be marginally more attractive than the USD which is built purely on debt. In this regard, we would point any serious student of internatioal trade to Antal Fekete’s Real Bills Doctrine as a way of building a viable, prosperous, long term trade infrastructure.
Willie also notes the overbearing military operations of the United States to thwart these Eastern developments, and the enormous resentment against the United States due to its interference in domestic affairs of sovereign nations, all of which have been incessant since the establishment of the Rockefeller CIA.
The implications of these developments are staggering. The United States faces the loss of its “exorbitant privilege” and access to large foreign markets at a time when its fiscal and monetary excesses have wiped out its solvency and credibility. History shows that such nations backed into corners resort to wars to retain their vanishing prestige, but this, too, will backfire and accelerate the demise of the nation.
In the long run, if the ruination forecast by these events befalls the USA, and its people realize that they have been ruled by treasonous Rockefeller Empire Nazis, and they call the bluff of the two party system which these Nazis control, they might be able to redeem themselves. Unfortunately, our optimism for such an outcome is most dim.

Research Note: President Eisenhower’s Views on Laos

This Research Note documents President Eisenhower’s views on Southeast Asia in general, but Laos in particular, which advocate for US military intervention to prevent the fall of Laos to Communists. We comment on the implications of his views regarding escalation in Southeast Asia as continuity of policy for the period 1945-1972.
We take the view that the Viet Nam War was an American experience which started immediately after World War 2 and ended in 1975, making it America’s own 30 Years War. It thus affected the presidencies of Harry Truman, Dwight Eisenhower, John Kennedy, Lyndon Johnson, Richard Nixon, and Gerald Ford. Involvement in the region escalated continuously until President Nixon signed the Paris Peace Accords with North Viet Nam in 1972.
President Eisenhower focused on providing aid to various Southeast Asian countries in an effort to mute or reverse the influences of Communist forces seeking to establish rule in the region. While he authorized a number of military advisors to assist the Vietnamese, he did not commit combat troops.
He viewed Laos as the linchpin of the region, so much so that he felt that the United States should take unilateral military action in Laos should Communist forces threaten to overpower the non-Communist government. Eisenhower also shared this view with President-elect Kennedy in 1961 and maintained it without change for the duration of the Kennedy presidency.
Kennedy in turn was quite solicitous of the General’s views, maintaining a steady correspondence with him about Southeast Asia and other domestic and foreign matters.
In a Memorandum on Conference between President Eisenhower and President-elect Kennedy and their Chief Advisers on January 19, 1961, date January 24, 1961, Kennedy advisor Clark Clifford recorded the following observation from the meeting about President Eisenhower:

At this point, President Eisenhower stated that Laos is the present key to the entire area of South East Asia. If Laos were lost to the Communists, it would bring an unbelievable pressure to bear on Thailand, Cambodia and South Vietnam. President Eisenhower stated that he considered Laos of such importance that if it reached the stage where we could not persuade others to act with us, then he would be willing, "as a last desperate hope, to intervene unilaterally."

Robert McNamara also attended the meeting, but filed this report to the President-elect:

7* President Eisenhower stated without qualification "If Laos is lost to the Free World, in the long run we will lose all of Southeast Asia." A. With respect to Laos: 1. President Eisenhower advised against unilateral action by the United States in connection with Laos.

The notes are most intriguing in what they emphasize. Clifford reports Eisenhower supporting unilateral  intervention as a last but necessary step, while McNamara only reports Eisenhower’s reluctance to take unilateral action, which in and of itself does not foreclose such action.
Kennedy’s own recollection of the meeting is as follows:

I asked the Secretary [Herter] as to whether in his opinion we should intervene if the SETO was invoked by the government. He said very directly that he felt we should. It was the cork in the bottle. If Laos fell, then Thailand, the Philippines, and of course Chiang Kai Shek would go. I turned to the President. He stated also that he felt we should intervene.

In Kennedy’s memorandum, the trigger is a SEATO invocation for intervention against the Communists rather than a unilateral one. So while they all heard Eisenhower support intervention in Laos, it is not clear whether this action required SEATO sanction or joint action, or, if the US would shoulder the intervention alone, thus making it unilateral. That undertaking would be outside the boundaries of the treaty which was a mutual defense pact.
In 1962, Eisenhower clears the ambiguities noted above, according to CIA Director John McCone’s Memorandum for the Record dated May 10, 1962:
Eisenhower dwelt at length on the danger of South Vietnam and Thailand as both will be outflanked if Laos is in the Communist hands and concluded that such a situation would be so critical to Southeast Asia and so important to the U. S. that most extreme measures, including the commitment of U.S. forces to combat in Laos, were justified.
Eisenhower is later reported in the memorandum as stating that US unilateral action would be “appropriate.” He expressed views so strongly about the importance of Laos and Southeast Asia that he urged the President to go before Congress seeking authorization to act in Southeast Asia.
It is thus impossible for anyone to argue that Eisenhower opposed escalation in Vietnam, even if his own administration had not reached that point. He certainly felt that events were rapidly reaching a crescendo in 1962, and we must note that Eisenhower received regular military and intelligence briefings throughout the Kennedy tenure.
For those arguing that Eisenhower was opposed to military intervention in the region, we present the official records which point blankly contradict that view. The explanation is simple – namely that events in Laos had so devolved that the former president’s views evolved to the point of advising President Kennedy to escalate the war.
Subsequent consultations with President Johnson support the thesis that Eisenhower favored escalation as he often spoke approvingly of actions Johnson proposed which increased American involvement in Southeast Asia.
We believe that we have demonstrated from official memoranda of secret meetings with President Kennedy and his advisors that President Eisenhower advocated an interventionist strategy in Laos and Southeast Asia in general. The fact that his administration committed relatively light resources to the region in no way reflects his fully developed view of the situation in the peninsula.
We then conclude that Kennedy's actions in Southeast Asia were a moderation of Eisenhower's strategy and ideas on the foreign policy challenges posed by the region.

News Flash: American Troops Fighting Chinese in Africa

United States military troops are engaged in hot conflict with Chinese troops in Africa, according to Jim Willie, publisher of the Hat Trick newsletter. He reports that American military personnel are being flown back to the USA to receive treatment for injuries sustained in combat with Chinese forces.
The cause of the conflict is control over Africa’s vast mineral wealth which neo-colonial American leadership is trying to wrest away from native sovereign governments in a bid to deny access to the Chinese who already control significant quantities of rare earths and other industrially and militarily important mineral supplies.
Fighting is occurring in the south of the continent, with some conflicts near and around Djibouti, a small nation located on the horn of Africa bordering Ethiopia.
This news follows the widely reported assaults by American client forces in Mali who recently invaded the country to claim control of that nation’s gold mines, an act which some analysts attribute to the recent request by Germany to repatriate its gold.
Reports from both Zero Hedge and the Gold Anti Trust Association indicate that New York banks long ago leased out most American and German gold in an effort to suppress the price of gold, thus masking the signs of severe weakness in America’s currency and bond markets.
Willie also reported the movements of significant US Air Force elements which we infer are supporting the Sino-American war. Indeed senior Chinese leaders have recently visited the continent, undoubtedly for the purpose of receiving first hand reports of the conflict.
Willie further mentioned a massive building scheme of underground cities in the USA, and railroads connecting Langley, VA and Denver. We suspect that additional stealth transportation routes connect the massive spy center in Utah which records all telephone conversations, financial transactions, email, web usage, and other sources of communications.
Although he did not indicate the reason for these gargantuan infrastructure developments, we suspect that they are related to war mobilization, command, and control, and the imposition of martial law in anticipation of nuclear war.
Another morsel of information which Willie revealed was the development of an Eastern Asia trading zone which explicitly excludes the USA. This move, led by the Chinese, is part of a greater effort by Russian and Chinese leaders to isolate the USA which has engaged in epic financial fraud of all nations of the earth, as well as engaged in the largest drug trade in the world.
We suspect that the Medlin Cartel of Columbia was put out of business by the Bush Crime Syndicate and its CIA forces as a means of consolidating and monopolizing the international drug trade. Willie had previously reported, and with confirmation from another un-named source, that George Bush Sr had bailed out Bank of America in 2010 using his enormous stash of drug money.
Indeed, the Russians recently seized an extraordinarily large shipment of heroin in Afghanistan, produced by the USA, for distribution in Russia. The USA produces enormous quantities of heroin for international distribution whose revenues are laundered by the Iraqi Export Bank which is wholly owned and managed by JPMorgan Chase.
Synthesizing other information supplied by Willie, we are able to piece together the nodes in the world’s largest narcotics trade which begins in Afghanistan which was conquered by Americans, in part, to supply the poppies which are then converted into heroin. The heroin is shipped to Kosovo for further distribution into Russia and possibly other parts of Europe and America. Money is funneled through the Vatican where it is exchanged into gold. Sales of the gold are arbitraged in other markets where it is returned to the Iraqi Export Bank for financing additional terrorist activities of the CIA.
When we refer to the United States, we refer principally to the powerful invisible forces who govern the nation, principally the Rockefeller Nazis and their bankster confederates who run the USA government and European Union. Chinese and Russian leaders have retaliated by the commencement of various isolation tactics which will leave the banksters increasingly solitary in their imperial aggressions. The highest strategic aim of the Eastern Trading zone is to pry the United Kingdom from the American orbit. Simultaneously, the Russians and Chinese are in the early stages of dumping European bonds.
There is so much more information to develop from Jim Willie, but we leave this report as a down payment for future news flashes.

The Cure for the Common Cold and Cancer

They all laughed when I said that I could cure the common cold, and they laughed even harder when I suggested it would cost a fraction of traditional treatments. Although the cold has baffled American doctors for decades, its  cause and cure are rather simple - toxemia and detoxification. The bonus is that cancer is cured through similar treatment.
We know that many of you subscribe to some pathenogenic theory of the cold – namely that it is caused by germs, viruses, bacteria, or some combination thereof. I recall reading an article on one of those fancy medical sites – the ones edited or supervised by doctors – describing research into colds. Experimenters have tried desperately to pass the cold from one person to the other – even going so far as to have people ingest the snot and saliva of those with colds. Nothing succeeded.
Equally so is that after trillions of dollars have been spent on cancer research, orthodox medicine men can no more cure it than the common cold. Something tells us that we are being take for a ride. If colds and cancer are not infectious, then one must contract the affliction through internal mechanisms. Consulting doctors from 3 or 4 generations ago, we discovered that the common cold and cancer have the same etiology - toxemia.

The body has three principle means of eliminating toxins - bowels, kidneys, and pores. When these organs are impaired, the body seeks expurgation through the nasal passages which are easily overwhelmed with the toxins, resulting in a cold.

Not only would we agree with that conclusion but we would go one step farther by stating that colds are also caused by fatigue. When the body undergoes sufficient stress in the presence of inadequate rest and blood hygeine, it will succumb to the common cold - because these stresses impair oxidation.

But there are other stressors or inhibitors of oxidation, the chief one by far being spinal subluxations which impair the nerve signals which operate all of the vital organs of the body. When the nerves are compromised, the body's natural oxidation process breaks down leaving it vulnerable to toxin buildup which can lead to cancer in extreme cases. The required cure is removal of toxins and jump starting of the body's oxidation process.

Each person’s stress tolerance is different, but we all need rest, whose deprivation, scientists are discovering, leads to all manners of illness and dysfunction. Sleep scientists have only within the past 2-3 decades discovered what we knew from generational wisdom that the maxim of sleeping 8 hours per night is wise counsel.

Many people lead hectic lives, working heavy hours, catering to the kids’ diverse schedules, or living lives of exhaustion which cause the body to break.

Cold weather, for example, is not sufficient to cause a cold, but if weather turns abruptly cold or the body is not sufficiently insulated from it, the resulting stress on the body may lead to a cold and its attendant symptoms.
We will be attacked for our advice since we are not medical doctors, but are not afraid to exercise our God given brains and the work of eminently qualified physicians who have successfully treated cancer without resort to the quackery promoted by the American medical establishment. Our real enemies are the drug companies who wage war against anyone offering health strategies which do not involve drugs, chemicals, and surgery. It is professional suicide to advocate homeopathic or natural cures for ailments, or chiropractic, a topic which we will address in another blog postings.
So the best prescription to those who suffer colds is to catch up on rest, refrain from eating to allow the body to catch up on waste removal, but consume water, and escape stress as much as possible. Chicken noodle soup is prescribed since its pleasant aroma relaxes the mind to reduce stress.

First Impressions: Two Foolish Men

Whittaker Chambers (Photo: Wikipedia)
The Alger Hiss case has served as a shibboleth for both the Left and Right, seemingly intractable, fought with religious fervor even 60 years after its advent. After reading Two Foolish Men we believe that Hiss has been decisively vindicated, but at considerable loss to both him and his adversary Whittaker Chambers.
Moore portrays the adversaries as two scorpions locked in a battle which one is destined to lose. He convincingly argues that the conflict was about a friendship gone very bad – about two men who backed the other into corners without face saving exits.
The predicate of the affair was a broken relationship between Chambers and Hiss who met in 1934 when Chambers presented himself to Hiss at the State Department as a reporter named George Crosley. Discovering that they both lost brothers who were in their 20s to suicide, thus sharing a common bond, Hiss invited Chambers and his wife home for dinner. Hiss also discovered that Chambers, a new arrival in Washington, DC and in need of work, offered him lodging and other assistance until he could get back on his feet.
Little did Hiss know that Chambers would become a freeloader for the next two years, and little did he know that Chambers was at the height of his homosexual indulgences. Chambers was attracted to Hiss in a sexual way which prompted him to strike up the friendship in the first place. However, Hiss’ patience grew thin with Chambers’ financial derelictions to the point where he abruptly terminated their friendship and threw him out of his subleased apartment.
While Hiss’ perturbation is quite understandable, he would have served his future better had he handled his rift with Chambers with a bit more tact and delicacy. Chambers would most likely not have nurtured a festering scorn which would erupt in revenge some 10 years later before the House Un American Committee where he called Hiss a Communist.
Hiss had indeed forgotten about the incident even to the point of not recognizing Chambers. When he heard that had been maligned, Hiss demanded that he be given the opportunity to defend himself. This reaction, then, begins Moore’s defense of Hiss. A guilty man would not have risked perjury – certainly not a man of Hiss’ sterling character. If Hiss had been guilty, he simply would need only to maintain silence, and if compelled to testify, plead the Fifth Amendment. There was nothing more than Hiss’ word of accusation against him – not nearly enough to make a case of anything.
Yet the story only begins there. In spite of a bevy of Ivy League lawyers – and Hiss was one – Hiss’ defense failed to make note of the most damning contradiction in the case – a contradiction which would have dismissed the case entirely. In all of the testimony of Hiss and Chambers, it was evident that Hiss only knew George Crosley – an innocuous freelance writer living in and around Washington. Hiss never knew Whitaker Chambers, and certainly not his alter ego Carl who was the Communist Chambers.
Yes, Chambers was quite a raconteur as Moore tells it – a man capable of telling a tall tale with his listeners eating out of his hand. Not only was Chambers known as Whitaker, Carl, and George Crosley, but also as David Breen and Lloyd Cantwell. Sybil would be jealous.
Hiss never knew the subversive Carl who held Marx classes and pilfered documents from the State Department – a task as easy as taking candy from a baby in the early post war State Department. These documents formed the basis of the famous Baltimore documents which Moore demonstrates to have been copied by Mr Chambers himself – after he left the Communist party in 1937.
Moore discusses the famous Woodstock typewriter, showing that the one presented in court was planted evidence found by Hiss himself and produced by the FBI as court evidence. It turned out that this typewriter was not Hiss’ based upon the serial number and other factors of provenance. But it was the typewriter which convicted him.
The crushing blow against Hiss came from Ramos C. Feehan, an FBI laboratory specialist who claimed an expertise in typography. Using this voodoo science, he presented 10 images of 10 letters from the typewriter allegedly used for creating copies of the stolen Baltimore documents, and a comparable set from known copies of letters made on the Hiss Woodstock typewriter, known as the standard documents. By showing the unique characteristics of the letters on the documents, he “proved” that the two sets of documents were created from the same typewriter, thus implicating the typist – Mrs Hiss – in the espionage.
Unfortunately Hiss’ extremely well credentialed but slow of wit lawyers did not challenge these so-called forensic findings. Subsequently many folks did, pointing out that the typewriters are not finger prints and thus more than 1 typewriter can produce similar, if not identical, graphological impressions. In addition, the the chain of custody on the alleged Hiss typewriter was non-existent, meaning that the typewriter could have been altered over time to produce a bogus comparison with the standard documents from the Hisses.
Finally, Moore notes that the FBI withheld key exculpatory information from the court and Hiss’ legal team which explained the origins of the fake typewriter and Chambers’ confession that Hiss knew George Crosley – not Carl or Whitaker Chambers.
In the second trial, Hiss was convicted of perjury and spent close to 4 years in jail for a crime he didn’t commit. Chambers, of course, would write Witness in which he contradicted his court testimony, but would become a best seller, and cult classic for the Right. Unfortunately its sum and substance was a pack of lies.
Hiss failed to overturn his conviction, even with new evidence. The campaign to vindicate him is not finished. The most just result would be a full legal exoneration of Hiss, and a stripping of the Medal of Freedom Medal from Chambers.
We have sampled only a few of the evidences Moore presents in defense of Hiss, and even then only skimmed the arguments. To fully understand the depth of Moore’s vindication, you must read it for yourself. Best of all, it is free and online.

First Impressions: Guns of the Regressive Right

The Warren Commission Report earned contempt the moment is rolled off the presses, claiming the attention of a former reporter and novelist who published Guns of the Regressive Right as an antidote to the lies of the WCR. While it is an old gem, it is not a literary one. Reader discretion is advised but historical interest is high.
One of our correspondents alerted us to this book by Morris Bealle which not only contained compelling material, but also gives us some perspective on the state of conspiracy analysis at such an early date. The author states that the book is semi-fictional meaning that the narrative is fictional but that the people are real and the events of the plot correspond to real ones – namely the murder of John Kennedy.
The book provides scant information about the author, as does the internet. We know that he was a reporter of the Washington Times and Herald before publishing his own small newspaper in the 1930s when he first came up against the unbridled power of large corporations and industrialists, many of whom were associated with the Rockefeller cartels.
Bealle published a number of investigative books critical of the thuggery and criminality of these powerful men, including The Drug Story originally copyrighted 1949. By 1976 the copyright was held by his wife, so we assume that he was deceased by then.
According to other information we obtained, Bealle was from a well to do, if not wealthy, family which gave him access to the circles of men about whom he writes in his books, not the least of which is the current novel which was written in 1964, and published not long after the Warren Commission Report was published in September of that year.
The plot of the book centers around 9 men, known as The Establishment, who plan the assassination of President Joe Smith in large measure because he had become too big for his britches, showing increasing independence of The Establishment in the aftermath of his father’s stroke suffered in 1961. Most offensive to the cabal is the proposed elimination of the oil depletion allowance which at the time was 27.5% and the source of enormous profits.
After discussing the matter at one of their conclaves, and considering the consequences of a second term, they decide to murder the president. They dispatch one of their members to organize the teams necessary to pull off the coup. He in turn hires staff which includes mafia elements who handle the shooting and an accomplice to help him who acts as decoy to throw the cops off the murderer’s path.
The Establishment takes great care in handling the public relations aspect of the crime in order to cover up the deed, a task made vastly simple by the sheepish character of the American people who are under the propaganda sway of one of The Establishment’s media moguls. One of the major purposes of the crime was to associate it with the leading Republican presidential contender of 1964 so as to destroy his chances at the presidency as he, too, proved incorrigible to The Establishment.
All goes well until a few hours after the murder, when The Establishment realizes that the decoy missed his getaway and murdered a cop on his way to a theater where he was quickly arrested. Since he is now a huge liability, they order a local small time Dallas mob leader to eliminate the decoy which then necessitates the silencing of the silencer.
Prior to this point, The Establishment realizes that an official investigation is required to cover-up the crime and to hide the identities of the perpetrators. They select reliable cronies in the government to take care of the details and to produce a mind boggling, incoherent report to baffle the public with meaningless facts and half-truths.
Their report is released to great fanfare, but a maverick publisher of a small newsletter manages to get on a special edition of Meet-the-Press to ask embarrassing questions of the guest who is the chairman of the investigative committee. While he bamboozles the main stream press representatives, he fails to cow the newsletter publisher who reduces the Supreme Court justice to pixilated inanities.
Before turning to the substance of the narrative, we would caution anyone who wishes to read it that the writing is rather wooden and stilted. It is not a page turner and of rather low literary quality. However, it lays out an interesting thesis, with which some we would agree, while other portions we would discard given what we have learned in the intervening 50 years.
We would agree that The Establishment was the prime mover in the murder. Bealle enumerates each of these men with pseudonyms, most of whom we have not yet deciphered, and for which we appeal to our dear readers for assistance. However, David and Nelson Rockefeller are clearly discernible.
We know that the enormity of the crime required much more than these 9 plutocrats, especially the CIA and military – in other words, the whole of the Military Industrial Complex, not just its Wall Street element.
Bealle also seems to exculpate the Secret Service and FBI both of which we know were knee deep in the crime. The Secret Service ensured that Kennedy would be assassinated while FBI was suborned into the crime after the fact, serving as its chief obfuscator and enforcer.
Our author realizes that Lee Oswald did not pull the trigger, lacking the skills and psychology for doing so. Unfortunately, he does not realize that Oswald was a patsy or working for the FBI in order to stop the plot. Bealle erroneously believes that Oswald was truly a Communist.
One interesting insight Bealle provides is that he indicates that the President was shot from the front although he never mentions the famed Grassy Knoll. In at least two places, he describes the presidential limousine turning around to go to the hospital, when we know that it sped to Parkland Memorial Hospital by gunning forward – after it slowed down long enough to give the sniper a good aim at the president’s skull. Bealle also notes that the right rear of Kennedy’s skull is blown off, a fact which did not gain traction or significance among a wide audience until at least 2-3 decades later.
Interestingly, Bealle has the sniper in the Dal-Tex building rather than the Texas School Book Depository although the book cover shows the TSBD. At least this is our interpretation of the book which describes the sniper’s lair in a 10 story building which emptied at 11a for the motorcade.
Chief Justice Warren is singled out as the master mind of the executive branch criminal investigation, but at this point, we believe that he was a useful idiot. Allen Dulles was the ring leader of the circus, but receives minimal attention from Bealle.
The novel notes the association between Oswald and Jack Ruby and anticipates the death of the latter. Ruby died of cancer in 1967 according to official stories, but Bealle has The Establishment murder him in 1964 - 3 years before his actual demise, a finality which we believe corresponds to the truth.
We have included a list of characters in the novel as Bealle provides them. We have listed the actual person where we are 100% certain of the correspondence. For those which leave us mystified, we have included the author’s characterization of the person. Perhaps someone with old corporate annual reports or a good knowledge of corporate history can help us with the blanks.
The bottom line is that Bealle was more right than he was wrong, but we have the benefit of painstaking research which the murderers suffocated in order to perpetuate the preposterous lies to which Bealle so rightfully and forcefully rejects.
