Summary: The article you are about to read resolves in principle the cloak-and-dagger controversy. Since individual cases cannot conclusively prove that the real masters of the USA (=invisible government or bankers) malign, imprison, or murder anyone who poses a threat to their rule, the article takes instead a bird’s eye view of the field of assassination research. It does so by paying special attention to patterns and statistical comparisons. This holistic approach leads to three conclusions: 1. The first conclusion is factual, enjoying the same level of confidence as the assertions that elephants trumpet and tobacco kills: the bankers have been murdering America’s best and brightest at least since the days of Abraham Lincoln. 2. Despite overwhelming evidence, not one banker throughout this period was made to suffer for his crimes: The bankers have a license to kill. 3. Their massive assassination program helped the bankers safeguard and bolster their parasitic chokehold on the USA and the world.
“Some of the biggest men in the U.S., in the field of commerce and manufacturing . . . know that there is a power somewhere so organized, so subtle, so watchful, so interlocked, so complete, so pervasive, that they had better not speak above their breath when they speak in condemnation of it.”—Woodrow Wilson, 28th president of the United States
“The West has maintained its dominance through murder and robbery on a planetary scale.”—Nikolai Starikov, 2015
The introductory article of this series recalled that the USA is controlled by an Invisible Government (=bankers) and that the bankers’ edifice of exploitation, parasitism, enslavement, perpetual warfare, and ecocide rests on massive, mutually-supporting, pillars. The second article provided a few examples of the cloak-and-dagger pillar. The present article puts forward statistical and criminological illustrations and arguments which conclusively prove this pillar’s existence.
1. The technology of killing someone and making it look like an accident or a suicide reached a state of high art at least 40 years ago. Here is one illustration.
The nearby photograph shows the late US Senator Frank Church displaying a Central Institute of Assassinations’ (CIA) dart gun that, depending on the poison used, either causes an immediate heart attack or a belated cancer. According to Congressional 1975 testimony, the gun fires a frozen poison-tipped dart. The tiny dart can penetrate clothing and leaves a barely-visible pin-sized red mark where it enters the victim’s body. In the heart attack version, once in the body, the poison melts, gets absorbed into the bloodstream, and causes cardiac arrest. The poison then denatures quickly, so that a routine autopsy is likely to ascribe the heart attack to natural causes.
In passing: Church probably paid for his courage–and for his progressive record–with his life. By 1984, at the early age of 59, he died of . . . cancer.
2. Leaked internal memos clearly show that the bankers have given themselves a license to kill. Here is a quote from the death squad’s (CIA’s) 1954 Assassination Manual:
“The contrived accident is the most effective technique. When successfully executed, it causes little excitement and is only casually investigated.”
And here is a letter from a CIA consultant to a CIA officer:
“You will recall that I mentioned that the local circumstances under which a given means might be used might suggest the technique to be used in that case. I think the gross divisions in presenting this subject might be:
- bodies left with no hope of the cause of death being determined by the most complete autopsy and chemical examinations
- bodies left in such circumstances as to simulate accidental death
- bodies left in such circumstances as to simulate suicidal death
- bodies left with residue that simulate those caused by natural diseases.”
3. We know that the CIA and its allies routinely murder non-compliant foreigners. For instance, few researchers dispute the culpability of Henry Kissinger and Richard Nixon in the assassination of the democratically-elected president of Chile, Salvador Allende. There is likewise no dispute that the American government attempted to kill Cuban leader Fidel Castro, over and over and over again. We know that the bankers played a role in the killing of Che Guevara, Saddam Hussein, and Muammar Gaddafi. We know they imprisoned a Panamanian head of state after invading his country and killing hundreds of innocents.
Are we supposed to believe that these are exceptions?
4. Historically, oligarchs used the cloak-and-dagger approach successfully and often. Saudi and Colombian compradors routinely murder their imaginary or real political opponents, as did the CIA-installed Brazilian and Argentine oligarchs a few decades ago. One of the greatest historical accounts ever written—Thucydides’ History of the Pelopennesian War—is replete with tales of oligarchic murderousness and treachery. Another typical episode (involving the Gracchi Brothers of Rome) can be accessed here.
Are we supposed to believe that the oligarchs controlling the US/UK are an exception to this historical rule?
5. Now that the bankers’ conquest of the Western World is almost complete, they are more inclined to occasionally come out of the shadows. Here, a former top CIA functionary publicly issues a veiled death threat against the popular leader of a nuclearly-armed country:
“Thugs like Putin . . . keep going until someone takes them out — permanently — with a knockout punch. . . . If the only way to get him out of the Kremlin is feet-first, with a bullet hole in the back of his head — that would also be okay with us. Nor would we object . . . if . . . his airplane gets blasted out of the sky by some murky para-military group that somehow, inexplicably, got its hands on a surface-to-air missile.”
While we’re on the topic: It seems to me only a matter of time before the bankers successfully carry out that threat.
6. A sixth line of evidence for the ubiquity of assassinations originates from accounts of former hatchet men and their would-be victims.
Consider the taped deathbed confession of notorious CIA hit man, E. Howard Hunt. In that recording, Hunt alleges that it was the American government and its CIA darling that murdered President Kennedy. This confession is especially significant, Larry Chin correctly observes, because it corroborates “work of key John F. Kennedy assassination researchers and historians.”
The second example involves comments of Catherine Austin-Fitts (Assistant Secretary of Housing in the George H. W. Bush’s Administration):
“The result of saying no is physical violence directed at them or their family. . . . I was targeted, I was poisoned, I had dead animals left on my doorstep, and my home had been broken into and people trying to run me off the road. You know it was very, very violent and it went on for years. So people who try to run the government clean or run Wall Street clean are targeted, and literally have to fear for their lives.”
7. The historical record reveals an undeniable pattern: At least since the days of Lincoln, almost all influential enemies of the international bankers—but hardly ever the bankers or their flunkeys—suffer or die prematurely.
This pattern is so undeniable, so strikingly consistent, so ubiquitous, that it in turn raises another question: How could this pattern escape the notice of almost all mainstream criminologists and historians?
At the moment, let me just say that, after years of studying the short or tragic lives of influential friends of the American people, I can only come up with five possible exceptions to this pattern: Upton Sinclair (died at age 90), Pete Seeger (died at 94), Albert Einstein (died at 76), Ed Asner (85, alive, and a 9/11 doubter), and Oliver Stone (still alive at 68).
8. The next corroboration is closely-linked to the above, this time involving longevity statistics of the bankers’ whores and foes.
The methodology in such cases is straightforward. At times, scientists might examine two groups of people who are comparable in every way except one. Let’s say the difference is that members of one group smoke tobacco while members of the other group do not. If non-smokers live considerably longer, and if the longevity gap is so consistent and large that it could not be reasonably attributed to pure chance, scientists deduce that tobacco kills.
To support the assassination hypothesis, we can carry out precisely such an analysis, replacing tobacco with bankers’ enmity as the critical variable.
Our first group consists of late influential Congressmen who consistently defied the bankers. In the past 100 years or so, memory brings to mind the following: Louis McFadden (died at age 60, having survived two earlier probable assassination attempts), Charles Lindbergh Sr. (65; having endured the burning of his book, government shadowing, bribery attempts, shots fired on his car during a political campaign, and the probable revenge-and-warning killing of his 20-month-old grandson and namesake), Huey Long (42; the most defiant, progressive, and dangerous of them all!), John Kennedy (46), Robert Kennedy (42), Ted Kennedy (dead at age 76, after miraculously surviving two probable assassination attempts), Paul Wellstone (58), John Heinz (52; “staunch critic of the Fed”), John Tower (65; “staunch critic of the Fed”), Larry McDonald (48; courageously accused the Rockefellers and their allies of a “plot, international in scope, generations old in planning, and incredibly evil in intent”), and Frank Church (59). Mean age at death for this small sample: 56.
We need to compare these victims of conscience to congressmen who were faithful servants of the Rockefellers. In his 1906 “The Treason of the Senate,” David Graham Phillips conveniently lists 21 such traitors.The average age at death of these 21 senators is 73. So: 73 vs. 56: Even if you choose to forget all other lines of evidence presented in this article and in numerous studies, this one disparity should convince you that assassinations are as American as apple pie.
We may note in passing that, true to form, the Rockefellers managed to have Phillips himself assassinated (aged 43)—and get away with this murder too. As well, the biographies of these 21 Rockefelleritos show that Rockefellerism in this upside-down world of ours pays—not only in longevity but also in honors and riches.
9. Wikipedia provides a government-approved list of assassinated American politicians. Despite its numerous oversights, this list is instructive.For the sake of consistency and brevity, let us focus on just one sub-group on that list: the six congressmen and ex-congressmen murdered since 1915.The first four are discussed elsewhere in this article: Presidents John F. Kennedy and William McKinley and presidential candidates Robert F. Kennedy and Huey Long.To my surprise however, the list contained two additional individuals. I immediately asked myself: Were they enemies of the bankers too?
Alard Lewonstein was a progressive, anti-war, one-time congressman elected in 1968. By 1970, he was gerrymandered out of office. Lewonstein crossed the bankers’ red line in 1975:
“Lowenstein was one of the most vocal critics of the unwillingness of Los Angeles and Federal authorities to reopen the investigation into the June 6, 1968 assassination of Senator Robert F. Kennedy. Lowenstein’s one hour appearance on the PBS television show Firing Line in 1975 . . . was one of the first times the American public were shown that many elements of ballistic and forensic evidence were radically at odds with eyewitness testimony and the assumption that Sirhan Sirhan alone had shot Senator Kennedy.”
He was murdered in 1980, age 51, allegedly by a madman.
Leo Ryan was also a man of conscience:
“After the Watts Riots of 1965, Assemblyman Ryan went to the area and took a job as a substitute school teacher to investigate and document conditions in the area. In 1970, using a pseudonym, Ryan had himself arrested, detained, and strip searched to investigate conditions in the California prison system. He stayed as an inmate for ten days in the Folsom Prison, while presiding as chairman on the Assembly committee that oversaw prison reform.”
Ryan crossed the line in 1974:
“Leo Ryan’s murder is seen by many as being much more sinister than the hysterical behavior of a madman. Leo Ryan had been a strong critic of the CIA and was the author of the Hughes-Ryan Amendment, which, if passed, would have required that the CIA report to Congress on all of its covert operations before they commenced. Soon after Ryan’s death, the Hughes-Ryan Amendment was quashed in Congress. The question conspiracy theorists ask is whether Ryan was killed in order to reach this objective and the massacre at ‘Jonestown’ merely a smoke screen to distract attention away from Ryan’s murder?”
Ryan was murdered in 1978, age 53, in a coordinated, highly professional, attack.
So here we go again: All 6 victims were thorns on the side of the Invisible Government. By contrast, not one congressional bootlicker of the Rothschilds and Rockefellers appears on that list—even though such bootlickers far outnumber their decent colleagues.
10. According to Karl Popper, the power and appeal of any real scientific theory is derived in part from its ability to bring forward falsifiable predictions. The assassination hypothesis passes this criterion with flying colors.
Indeed, assassination researchers can often answer the question “who is next?” They have learned that when anyone crosses a red line, accidentally or by design, it is just a matter of time before the bankers spring into action.
Speaking for myself, every time I run across a historical account of an influential challenger to the bankers’ rule and schemes, I immediately try to find out whether that person died prematurely or was made to suffer for her courage. In the majority of cases, my dire guesses meet with “a success unexpected in common hours.”
Likewise, every time an influential person suffers or dies prematurely (e.g., Lewonstein and Ryan, above), my first question is: Was s/he an enemy of the bankers?
Cloak-and-dagger researchers can likewise predict future events. I knew that Charlie Sheen would get into trouble after he publicly expressed doubts, on September 8, 2009, about the official version of 9/11. Sure enough, three and a half months later he was temporarily arrested, 5 months later his car was stolen and fell off a cliff, 9 months later he was sentenced to 17 days in jail, 12 months later his ex-wife was arrested, 18 months later he was fired from his popular TV show and allegedly suffered an emotional breakdown.
Similarly, as the British Petroleum 2010 Gulf catastrophe unfolded, I didn’t know enough to predict the many associated mysterious deaths and disappearances. However, I was convinced that the most prominent critic of the criminal handling of that catastrophe, high-level oil industry insider Matt Simmons, would pay for his courage. In 2010, Simmons died of a “heart attack in the bathtub.”
But don’t take my word for it. One documented prediction of the assassination hypothesis is available here.
Is the Cloak-and-Dagger Strategy Effective in Sustaining and Strengthening the American Oligarchy?
To see how assassinations or attempted assassinations can alter the course of history, take the example of American presidents since the days of Andrew Jackson. Jackson himself miraculously survived the bankers’ plot to kill him–and delayed their program of world conquest by decades. They have learned their lessons well since then. Zachary Taylor died in office, and he too was perhaps insufficiently compliant. Lincoln and Kennedy really annoyed the bankers–and were assassinated. Garfield and McKinley might have been thorns in their side too–and were assassinated. Franklin Delano Roosevelt was sufficiently troublesome to try to remove from office through a failed Nazi putsch, and he too died in office. Wilson was their yes-man to begin with, but towards the end became an outspoken critic–and he had been incapacitated in office.
But the effectiveness of assassinations goes far beyond presidents. Might not history have unfolded in a radically different way had the bankers:
- Abstained from routinely and openly framing, jailing, and murdering union members and leaders?
- Let influential artists like Ernest Hemingway, Richard Wright, John Lennon, Jim Morrison, Bob Marley, and Phil Ochs live?
- Not assassinated Martin Luther King, Mohandas Gandhi, and at least 5 members of the Kennedy clan?
- Let Aldo Moro, Salvador Allende, Omar Torrijos, and Hugo Chavez live?
Like organized crime, organized finance parasitizes planet Earth in part through a program of vilifications, smears, incarcerations, and murders.
Our discussion raises a fundamental question: Can we remove the murderous bankers from power peacefully, or must we give them a bit of their own cloak-and-dagger medicine?
Dr. Preston James, for instance, believes that:
“Fire must be fought with fire, and the day is soon coming when We The People must take the gloves off and truly go after these oppressors of humanity with a closed fist and make war against them at every level by every means we can muster. This will actually be a repeat of the American Revolution and the War of 1812, and the British banksters will have to be driven out and eradicated from America once again.”
Cloak and dagger is one of the pillars undergirding the unjust, chained, militaristic, and unsustainable contemporary world edifice. That pillar could perhaps support that edifice on its own, but the bankers like to play it safe. As we shall soon see, over the centuries they have constructed and solidified many other powerful pillars.
