Besides being a continuation of my earlier research already posted, this will also be the first part of what will go into my research of the whole dark underbelly of Vatican/British/American anglophiles “drug rehabilitation” programs, and what they were actually sheltering.

Put it this way, it would be like Cardinal Montini (later a Catholic Pope) heading a “Jews harmed by the Nazi’s” support group and outreach program.

hypocrisy overload

In other words.

.

This is somewhat rough-draft form, and is certainly not to be considered a final format in any way.

With that said –

.

Let’s get started.

Come with Me.

Let me be frank about what we are finding,” the CIA’s inspector general, Frederick Hitz, said in congressional testimony in March 1998. “There are instances where CIA did not, in an expeditious or consistent fashion, cut off relationships with individuals supporting the Contra program who were alleged to have engaged in drug trafficking activity or take action to resolve the allegations.”

“CIA did not inform Congress of all allegations or information it received indicating that Contra-related organizations or individuals were involved in drug trafficking,” the inspector general’s report found. “During the period in which the FY 1987 statutory prohibition was in effect, for example, no information has been found to indicate that CIA informed Congress of eight of the ten Contra-related individuals concerning whom CIA had received drug trafficking allegations or information.”

This complicity of the CIA in drug trafficking is at the heart of Webb’s explosive expose — a point Webb makes himself in archival interview footage that appears in Levin’s documentary.

It’s not a situation where the government or the CIA sat down and said, ‘Okay, let’s invent crack, let’s sell it in black neighborhoods, let’s decimate black America,’” Webb says. “It was a situation where, ‘We need money for a covert operation, the quickest way to raise it is sell cocaine, you guys go sell it somewhere, we don’t want to know anything about it.'”

– Gary Webb “Dark Alliance”, Huffington Post, October 10, 2014

.

For standing up and speaking out against this monstrosity, Gary was basically ‘fair-gamed’, a practice whose origins lie in the Catholic Church, not in scientology. His life was destroyed. He lost his job, his wife, even his favorite motorcycle just because he loved it. He was stripped of his stature for revealing this sordid mess to the world, and was excoriated by his fellow journalists on the orders of their masters – the slavemasters.

All to try and keep hidden, their ugly, ugly world of torturing the rest of us using drugs because hey – God said we had to suffer and that’s what this place is for.

…the grand Christian dogma on which religion rests as on its foundation – that, when we have given up this present life, then shall we really begin to live. God has not created us for the perishable and transitory things of earth, but for things heavenly and everlasting; He has given us this world as a place of exile…

the other pains and hardships of life will have no end or cessation on earth; for the consequences of sin are bitter and hard to bear, and they must accompany man so long as life lasts. To suffer and to endure, therefore, is the lot of humanity; let them strive as they may, no strength and no artifice will ever succeed in banishing from human life the ills and troubles which beset it. If any there are who pretend differently – who hold out to a hard-pressed people the boon of freedom from pain and trouble, an undisturbed repose, and constant enjoyment – they delude the people.

– Pope Leo XIII, Rerum Novarum (of revolutionary change) May 15, 1891

.

Let them remember that the world will never be able to rid itself of misery, sorrow and tribulation…

– Pope Pius XI DIVINI REDEMPTORIS (On Atheistic Communism) 19 March 1937

.

Not only that, it is good to suffer!

Jesus Christ, when He redeemed us with plentiful redemption, took not away the pains and sorrows which in such large proportion are woven together in the web of our mortal life. He transformed them into motives of virtue and occasions of merit; and no man can hope for eternal reward unless he follow in the blood-stained footprints of his Saviour. “If we suffer with Him, we shall also reign with Him.”(7) Christ’s labors and sufferings, accepted of His own free will, have marvellously sweetened all suffering and all labor. And not only by His example, but by His grace and by the hope held forth of everlasting recompense, has He made pain and grief more easy to endure; “for that which is at present momentary and light of our tribulation, worketh for us above measure exceedingly an eternal weight of glory.”(8)

– Pope Leo XIII, Rerum Novarum (of revolutionary change) May 15, 1891

 

So, you know, they’re just do-gooders doing their jobs, they’re really “helping” us by making sure everyone suffers. Apparently part of that suffering includes trashing people that tell the truth about these people and their scams on humanity.

Brother…

wry-face

Well, guess what – Gary Webb is now fully vindicated, despite the many efforts of the vicious little skekses slavemasters.

dark crystal skeksis vatican bank

.

August 1996, is when Gary Webb, San Jose Mercury News reporter, first published his articles titled Dark Alliance. The articles alleged that Nicaraguan drug traffickers had sold and distributed crack cocaine in Los Angeles during the 1980s, and that drug profits were used to fund the CIA-supported Contras. Webb documented that the CIA was aware of the cocaine transactions and the large shipments of cocaine into the U.S. by the Contra personnel.

After a little research, I found an obscure newspaper article from only a couple weeks after this series first appeared. This article happened to document the exact url of the San Jose Mercury News pages where this was all presented. I decided to see if that url was archived by the internet archive, and Eureka! It did. The articles, plus follow-ups (including denials, etc.) are all still available at the internet archive – you can read them for yourself.

Considering the documentation available of Sea Supply (Air America) and how the CIA was definitely using this exact same tactic during the Vietnam War, perhaps these ‘denials’ will be found amusing by you. Watch just how they attempt to distract, get around, and misdirect off the actual point, which is:

.

The CIA has long had involvement in the world-wide Drug Trade.

.

Together with the Vatican.

.

That’s a fact.

And…they know that, so what becomes educational is watching what methods are employed to get out of or derail a: accountability and b: public revelations of those facts.

Here’s an example or two concerning Gary’s Dark Alliance series.

  • The Facts (Texas) Friday November 1, 1996, titled: Ex-Contras: CIA cleared planes, cash from narcotics suspect

The_Facts_Fri__Nov_1__1996_

CIA Inspector General Frederick Hitz –

…said it might take months to examine fully records of the relationship between the CIA and Nicaraguan Contra members…

He said, however, that a preliminary investigation found “no credible information” to support allegations raised in a series by the California newspaper San Jose Mercury News.

.

Note: There they go with that word “credible” again – a word that is often tossed around by scientology operatives to attempt to debunk others, interestingly enough, even right to this day.

  • Ukiah Daily Journal, Monday May 12, 1997, titled: Editor talks to readers about ‘Dark Alliance’

Ukiah_Daily_Journal_Mon__May_12__1997_

Ceppos wrote that if the Mercury News were to publish the series today, it would be edited differently [by him]: It would state fewer conclusions and certainties, and be clearer as to how conclusions are drawn.

.

  • Santa Cruz Sentinel, Thursday June 12, 1997, titled: Mercury News Reporter pulled from CIA story, transferred –

Santa_Cruz_Sentinel_Thu__Jun_12__1997_

…newspaper management told him to stop reporting on the “Dark Alliance” series, published last summer, or he would lose his job.

…Federal investigations spurred by the series found no links between the CIA and drug dealing.

.

The CIA actually pretty much crowed over ruining this man’s life, in an internal circular meant to keep the rank-and-file CIA people “happy” with where they are working. Which, a bright spot there, is that not everyone who works at the CIA are corrupt sociopaths like some of the heads are, or else they would have no need to actually run an in-house propaganda campaign like this.

But from the time period of Gary’s articles, check this out  –

By the end of September, the number of observed stories in the print media that indicated skepticism of the Mercury-News series surpassed that of the negative coverage, which had already peaked.

In fact, for three weeks the number of skeptical or positive pieces observed in the media constantly exceeded the number of negative treatments of CIA.

After a brief surge in negative reporting in mid-October, the observed number of skeptical treatments of the alleged CIA connection grew until it more than tripled the coverage that gave credibility to that connection. The growth in balanced reporting was largely due to the criticisms of the San Jose Mercury-News by the Washington Post, The New York Times, and especially The Los Angeles Times.

In its own three-part series, The Los Angeles Times debunked Gary Webb’s claims and insinuations regarding the alleged role of ClA in drug smuggling, the amount of money that went to the Contras, and even such basic elements of the story as the  chronology of events. Published almost exactly two months after the San Jose Mercury-News stories, The Los Angeles Times series itself became a newsworthy story and was picked up by many media outlets across the country.

Managing a Nightmare, CIA Public Affairs and the Drug Conspiracy Story approved for release 2014/07/29 C01372115

I doubt many have ever seen this before as it was only released last year.

See all that attention on creating skepticism and trying to swamp anyone giving credibility to Webb’s expose?

That’s utterly fascinating when you consider it was 100 percent true.

.

All they cared about is people not knowing that it was 100 percent true.

.

Especially their own people!

.

You see current scientology activists doing the exact same thing – forcing a false standard of “credible” in front of the word “news”.

Of course, only their information is “credible”. Sounds an awful lot like how the CIA operates towards the kind of exposure they do NOT want.

Meanwhile – both behind-the-scenes and through forum mouthpieces, people are being banned from speaking and long-term critics and threats to the scientology agenda are being trashed publicly. Like Arnie Lerma, whom such mouthpieces just recently tried to portray as being “senile” as well as anti-semitic.

The person that is saying that about Arnie is named Kathy Mace, per earlier posts on this same forum that outed her, but she also had posted interviews in her real name years earlier at something called “through the door interviews”. You can look it up.

Kathy is second from the right –

mary mcconnell anonymary second from rightfrom left to right – Angela Harris, PhD, toxicologist expert and witness for Ryan Hamilton attorney Jon Little; next is paralegal and law student Kat Villanueva – who works for attorney Jeffrey Ray’s MI firm; speaking into the mike is attorney David Miller, “Mary McConnell”, Jon Atack

.

Kathy uses the posting names “AnonyMary” and “Mary McConnell”. She’s a ‘former scientologist’ who is now a catholic, from what I understand. If so, that would put her in support of a church that far, far, outranks scientology or anyone else in its evil, duplicit, and utterly hostis humanus generi behavior.

that latin term means – enemy of the human race

.

From my perspective, Kathy forms one of a core group of “activsits” that go out of their way to try and get that whole CIA “skeptical” thing going towards extremely damaging topics.

That kind of skepticism is no part of “critical thinking” by the way – it’s an agenda, plain and simple.

Whose agenda?

is what you should be asking yourself.

.

In scientology, it isn’t who beat who…

Miscavige slapping marty

or whose family was wrecked – which although these things are terrible?

.

That’s not what the people behind it don’t want known.

.

It’s exposing the actual slavemaster lines, the actual plans, what they are doing and to whom, and most importantly with whom.

That’s where scientology also lives. It comes under that “with whom” part.

– – –

Let’s take another look at that CIA in-house document again, and this time focus on the LA Times part, with the euphemistic intro of “balanced” reporting (which it was anything but).

That’s not “balance” to throw in opposing views that are lies. The truth doesn’t need to be “balanced”. All this is, was an attempt to overcome the view of that truth as the truth that it was.

The growth in balanced reporting was largely due to the criticisms of the San Jose Mercury-News by the Washington Post, The New York Times, and especially The Los Angeles Times.

In its own three-part series, The Los Angeles Times debunked Gary Webb’s claims and insinuations regarding the alleged role of ClA in drug smuggling, the amount of money that went to the Contras, and even such basic elements of the story as the  chronology of events. Published almost exactly two months after the San Jose Mercury-News stories, The Los Angeles Times series itself became a newsworthy story and was picked up by many media outlets across the country.

Managing a Nightmare, CIA Public Affairs and the Drug Conspiracy Story approved for release 2014/07/29 C01372115

.

You see how it talks about that most especially the LA Times helped ruin Gary Webb’s life as if that was an admirable and correct thing to do?

Yea, well guess what…

 

In 2014, in the wake of overwhelming evidence that Gary was right, LA Times reporter Jesse Katz is forced to “apologize” (I guess on behalf of the Times) for what they had done. But in my opinion, he doesn’t go far enough and still tries to weasel around about it plus calls Webb a lone “muckraker” which strikes me as just plain bitchy. It reminds me of certain…never mind.

Last year, though, former LA Times reporter Jesse Katz apologized for attacking Webb’s story and reputation.

“As an L.A. Times reporter, we saw this series in the San Jose Mercury News and kind of wonder[ed] how legit it was and kind of put it under a microscope,” Katz said, according to LA Weekly. “And we did it in a way that most of us who were involved in it, I think, would look back on that and say it was overkill. We had this huge team of people at the L.A. Times and kind of piled on to one lone muckraker up in Northern California.”

“We really didn’t do anything to advance his work or illuminate much to the story, and it was a really kind of tawdry exercise. … And it ruined that reporter’s career.”

Decades-old CIA crack-cocaine scandal gains new momentum, October 11, 2014

.

These spineless cretins ruined his life, not just his career.

That’s a bit more than just a tawdry exercise.

perish the thought - wry ick face.

Following the scandal, in 1998 the CIA quietly published an internal inspector general’s report [see below links I found] into the matter, which prior to its release was much-touted for whitewashing the agency’s reputation. Instead, it seemed to add legitimacy to the accusations, saying, “CIA knowledge of allegations or information indicating that organizations or individuals had been involved in drug trafficking did not deter their use by CIA.” At other times, the “CIA did not act to verify drug trafficking allegations or information even when it had the opportunity to do so.”

“No information has been found to indicate that CIA informed Congress of eight of the ten Contra-related individuals concerning whom CIA had received drug trafficking allegations or information,” the report added.

In a new post on Democracy Now, a transcript from the documentary “Shadows of Liberty” reveals investigative journalist Robert Parry saying this watchdog report was even more damning for the CIA than the original story.

“The contents of the reports, if you go into the actual nitty-gritty of them,” he said, “what you find is that there was a serious problem, that the US government knew about, and that the Contras were far more guilty of drug trafficking and the CIA was more guilty of looking the other way than even Gary Webb had suggested.

After the CIA people deliberately trashed Gary Webb’s life and were crowing about it – check out the duplicity that goes even deeper here. Did you notice that first news article example and who it was by?

Frederick Hitz, the CIA investigator, who in 1996 (as part of trashing Gary) said:

…a preliminary investigation found “no credible information” to support allegations raised in a series by the California newspaper San Jose Mercury News.

– The Facts (Texas) Friday November 1, 1996, titled: Ex-Contras: CIA cleared planes, cash from narcotics suspect

.

What’s the point of saying something like that? To destroy Gary’s credibility, of course.

And yet, what did this same Hitz character say just two years later?

“Let me be frank about what we are finding,” the CIA’s inspector general, Frederick Hitz, said in congressional testimony in March 1998. “There are instances where CIA did not, in an expeditious or consistent fashion, cut off relationships with individuals supporting the Contra program who were alleged to have engaged in drug trafficking activity or take action to resolve the allegations.”

…This complicity of the CIA in drug trafficking is at the heart of Webb’s explosive expose…

Frederick Hitz – CIA Inspector General

frederick hitz2

You will notice Hitz is still trying to dance around the fact that this is not just a case of “they didn’t know”.

In fact, he does this repeatedly throughout the hearings on this topic. “We didn’t know”  was said so many times that it became more in the realm of the ridiculous than in the realm of reality – he literally made these people like a bunch of nutcases.

Here’s some of the related documents for you –

  • The CIA version –  ALLEGATIONS OF CONNECTIONS BETWEEN CIA AND THE CONTRAS IN COCAINE TRAFFICKING TO THE UNITED STATES (96-0143-IG)  Volume II: The Contra Story; October 8, 1998, and here’s Volume I.
  • A different version.
  • The findings part – which is where “we didn’t know…” is said over and over.

In my opinion, writer Robert Parry of Consortium News, has done some of the most brilliant and comprehensive articles out there on this subject.

Here’s an example

Although Hitz’s report was an extraordinary admission of institutional guilt by the CIA, it went almost unnoticed by the big American newspapers.

On Oct. 10, 1998, two days after Hitz’s Volume Two was posted on the CIA’s Web site, the New York Times published a brief article that continued to deride Webb but acknowledged the Contra-drug problem may have been worse than earlier understood. Several weeks later, the Washington Post weighed in with a similarly superficial article. The Los Angeles Times never published a story on the release of Hitz’s Volume Two.

May have been worse? Oh man, the vicious arrogance of these people.

.

In 2000, the House Intelligence Committee grudgingly acknowledged that the stories about Reagan’s CIA protecting Contra drug traffickers were true. The committee released a report citing classified testimony from CIA Inspector General Britt Snider (Hitz’s successor) admitting that the spy agency had turned a blind eye to evidence of Contra-drug smuggling and generally treated drug smuggling through Central America as a low priority.

Oh, they did more than just “ignore” it, they actively assisted it and profited by it.

Why?

In the end the objective of unseating the Sandinistas appears to have taken precedence…

.

That’s why, and that was a Vatican/British/Anglophilic slavemaster agenda.

THAT is what Gary Webb stepped too close to, and why they literally went biblical on him – all hell and fire and brimstone in the name of “God”..

On Dec. 9, 2004, the 49-year-old Webb typed out suicide notes to his ex-wife and his three children; laid out a certificate for his cremation; and taped a note on the door telling movers — who were coming the next morning — to instead call 911. Webb then took out his father’s pistol and shot himself in the head.

…The Los Angeles Times ran a mean-spirited obituary that made no mention of either my defense of Webb, nor the CIA’s admissions in 1998. The obituary was republished in other newspapers, including the Washington Post.

In effect, Webb’s suicide enabled senior editors at the Big Three newspapers to breathe a little easier — one of the few people who understood the ugly story of the Reagan administration’s cover-up of the Contra-cocaine scandal and the U.S. media’s complicity was now silenced.

To this day, none of the journalists or media critics who participated in the destruction of Gary Webb has paid a price. None has faced the sort of humiliation that Webb had to endure. None had to experience that special pain of standing up for what is best in the profession of journalism — taking on a difficult story that seeks to hold powerful people accountable for serious crimes — and then being vilified by your own colleagues, the people that you expected to understand and appreciate what you had done.

.

Because of the Oliver North exposes and the hard work of people like Robert Parry, more and more information and documentation coming out proving that these “allegations” were FACTS.

You can see that even a lying-ass slavemaster tools like Inspector General Hitz and the LA Times can be forced into having to adjust their position, however slightly, however grudgingly.

But, you can also see that even then, these insane psychos will fight-like-hell to get out of whatever responsibility they think they can get away with.

They’re no different than the nazis on trial at the Hague, literally just as bad in their complete lack of remorse. But, their evil deeds were proven despite their lack of cooperation.

The same thing happened with what Gary said they were doing – it has been proven anyway despite these terrible excuses for human beings best efforts to kill it.

Conspiracies Proven True: Government Drug Running and False Flag Operations – George Washington University National Security Archives, Washington, DC

Washington, D.C. – An August, 1996, series in the San Jose Mercury News by reporter Gary Webb linked the origins of crack cocaine in California to the contras, a guerrilla force backed by the Reagan administration that attacked Nicaragua’s Sandinista government during the 1980s. Webb’s series, “The Dark Alliance,” has been the subject of intense media debate, and has focused attention on a foreign policy drug scandal that leaves many questions unanswered.

This electronic briefing book is compiled from declassified documents obtained by the National Security Archive, including the notebooks kept by NSC aide and Iran-contra figure Oliver North, electronic mail messages written by high-ranking Reagan administration officials, memos detailing the contra war effort, and FBI and DEA reports. The documents demonstrate official knowledge of drug operations, and collaboration with and protection of known drug traffickers. Court and hearing transcripts are also included.”

Contras, Cocaine, and Covert Operations – George Washington University National Security Archives

.

What the hey, let’s put it all here for you to see and peruse for yourself!

.

Documentation of Official U.S. Knowledge of Drug Trafficking and the Contras

The National Security Archive obtained the hand-written notebooks of Oliver North, the National Security Council aide who helped run the contra war and other Reagan administration covert operations, through a Freedom of Information Act lawsuit filed in 1989. The notebooks, as well as declassified memos sent to North, record that North was repeatedly informed of contra ties to drug trafficking.

In his entry for August 9, 1985, North summarizes a meeting with Robert Owen (“Rob”), his liaison with the contras. They discuss a plane used by Mario Calero, brother of Adolfo Calero, head of the FDN, to transport supplies from New Orleans to contras in Honduras. North writes: “Honduran DC-6 which is being used for runs out of New Orleans is probably being used for drug runs into U.S.” As Lorraine Adams reported in the October 22, 1994 Washington Post, there are no records that corroborate North’s later assertion that he passed this intelligence on drug trafficking to the U.S. Drug Enforcement Administration.

In a July 12, 1985 entry, North noted a call from retired Air Force general Richard Secord in which the two discussed a Honduran arms warehouse from which the contras planned to purchase weapons. (The contras did eventually buy the arms, using money the Reagan administration secretly raised from Saudi Arabia.) According to the notebook, Secord told North that “14 M to finance [the arms in the warehouse] came from drugs.”

An April 1, 1985 memo from Robert Owen (code-name: “T.C.” for “The Courier”) to Oliver North (code-name: “The Hammer”) describes contra operations on the Southern Front. Owen tells North that FDN leader Adolfo Calero (code-name: “Sparkplug”) has picked a new Southern Front commander, one of the former captains to Eden Pastora who has been paid to defect to the FDN. Owen reports that the officials in the new Southern Front FDN units include “people who are questionable because of past indiscretions,” such as José Robelo, who is believed to have “potential involvement with drug running” and Sebastian Gonzalez, who is “now involved in drug running out of Panama.”

On February 10, 1986, Owen (“TC”) wrote North (this time as “BG,” for “Blood and Guts”) regarding a plane being used to carry “humanitarian aid” to the contras that was previously used to transport drugs. The plane belongs to the Miami-based company Vortex, which is run by Michael Palmer, one of the largest marijuana traffickers in the United States. Despite Palmer’s long history of drug smuggling, which would soon lead to a Michigan indictment on drug charges, Palmer receives over $300,000.00 from the Nicaraguan Humanitarian Aid Office (NHAO) — an office overseen by Oliver North, Assistant Secretary of State for Inter-American Affairs Elliott Abrams, and CIA officer Alan Fiers — to ferry supplies to the contras.

State Department contracts from February 1986 detail Palmer’s work to transport material to the contras on behalf of the NHAO.


Evidence that NSC Staff Supported Using Drug Money to Fund the Contras

In 1987, the Senate Subcommittee on Narcotics, Terrorism and International Operations, led by Senator John Kerry, launched an investigation of allegations arising from reports, more than a decade ago, of contra-drug links. One of the incidents examined by the “Kerry Committee” was an effort to divert drug money from a counternarcotics operation to the contra war.

On July 28, 1988, two DEA agents testified before the House Subcommittee on Crime regarding a sting operation conducted against the Medellin Cartel. The two agents said that in 1985 Oliver North had wanted to take $1.5 million in Cartel bribe money that was carried by a DEA informant and give it to the contras. DEA officials rejected the idea.

The Kerry Committee report concluded that “senior U.S. policy makers were not immune to the idea that drug money was a perfect solution to the Contras’ funding problems.”


U.S. Officials and Major Traffickers

Manuel Noriega

In June, 1986, the New York Times published articles detailing years of Panamanian leader Manuel Noriega’s collaboration with Colombian drug traffickers. Reporter Seymour Hersh wrote that Noriega “is extensively involved in illicit money laundering and drug activities,” and that an unnamed White House official “said the most significant drug running in Panama was being directed by General Noriega.” In August, Noriega, a long-standing U.S. intelligence asset, sent an emissary to Washington to seek assistance from the Reagan administration in rehabilitating his drug-stained reputation.

Oliver North, who met with Noriega’s representative, described the meeting in an August 23, 1986 e-mail message to Reagan national security advisor John Poindexter. “You will recall that over the years Manuel Noriega in Panama and I have developed a fairly good relationship,” North writes before explaining Noriega’s proposal. If U.S. officials can “help clean up his image” and lift the ban on arms sales to the Panamanian Defense Force, Noriega will “‘take care of’ the Sandinista leadership for us.”

North tells Poindexter that Noriega can assist with sabotage against the Sandinistas, and suggests paying Noriega a million dollars — from “Project Democracy” funds raised from the sale of U.S. arms to Iran — for the Panamanian leader’s help in destroying Nicaraguan economic installations.

The same day Poindexter responds with an e-mail message authorizing North to meet secretly with Noriega. “I have nothing against him other than his illegal activities,” Poindexter writes.

On the following day, August 24, North’s notebook records a meeting with CIA official Duane “Dewey” Clarridge on Noriega’s overture. They decided, according to this entry, to “send word back to Noriega to meet in Europe or Israel.”

The CIA’s Alan Fiers later recalls North’s involvement with the Noriega sabotage proposal. In testimony at the 1992 trial of former CIA official Clair George, Fiers describes North’s plan as it was discussed at a meeting of the Reagan administration’s Restricted Interagency Group: “[North] made a very strong suggestion that . . . there needed to be a resistance presence in the western part of Nicaragua, where the resistance did not operate. And he said, ‘I can arrange to have General Noriega execute some insurgent — some operations there — sabotage operations in that area. It will cost us about $1 million. Do we want to do it?’ And there was significant silence at the table. And then I recall I said, ‘No. We don’t want to do that.'”

Senior officials ignored Fiers’ opinion. On September 20, North informed Poindexter via e-mail that “Noriega wants to meet me in London” and that both Elliott Abrams and Secretary of State George Shultz support the initiative. Two days later, Poindexter authorized the North/Noriega meeting.

North’s notebook lists details of his meeting with Noriega, which took place in a London hotel on September 22. According to the notes, the two discussed developing a commando training program in Panama, with Israeli support, for the contras and Afghani rebels. They also spoke of sabotaging major economic targets in the Managua area, including an airport, an oil refinery, and electric and telephone systems. (These plans were apparently aborted when the Iran-Contra scandal broke in November 1986.)

José Bueso Rosa

Reagan administration officials interceded on behalf of José Bueso Rosa, a Honduran general who was heavily involved with the CIA’s contra operations and faced trial for his role in a massive drug shipment to the United States. In 1984 Bueso and co-conspirators hatched a plan to assassinate Honduran President Roberto Suazo Córdoba; the plot was to be financed with a $40 million cocaine shipment to the United States, which the FBI intercepted in Florida.

Declassified e-mail messages indicate that Oliver North led the behind-the-scenes effort to seek leniency for Bueso . The messages record the efforts of U.S. officials to “cabal quietly” to get Bueso off the hook, be it by “pardon, clemency, deportation, [or] reduced sentence.” Eventually they succeeded in getting Bueso a short sentence in “Club Fed,” a white collar prison in Florida.

The Kerry Committee report reviewed the case, and noted that the man Reagan officials aided was involved in a conspiracy that the Justice Department deemed the “most significant case of narco-terrorism yet discovered.”

 


FBI/DEA Documentation

In February 1987 a contra sympathizer in California told the FBI he believed FDN officials were involved in the drug trade. Dennis Ainsworth, a Berkeley-based conservative activist who had supported the contra cause for years, gave a lengthy description of his suspicions to FBI agents. The bureau’s debriefing says that Ainsworth agreed to be interviewed because “he has certain information in which he believes the Nicaraguan ‘Contra’ organization known as FDN (Frente Democrático Nacional) has become more involved in selling arms and cocaine for personal gain than in a military effort to overthrow the current Nicaraguan Sandinista Government.” Ainsworth informed the FBI of his extensive contacts with various contra leaders and backers, and explained the basis for his belief that members of the FDN were trafficking in drugs.

A DEA report of February 6, 1984 indicates that a central figure in the San Jose Mercury News series was being tracked by U.S. law enforcement officials as early as 1976, when a DEA agent “identified Norwin MENESES-Canterero as a cocaine source of supply in Managua, Nicaragua.” Meneses, an associate of dictator Anastasio Somoza who moved to California after the Nicaraguan revolution in 1979, was an FDN backer and large-scale cocaine trafficker.

 


Testimony of Fabio Ernesto Carrasco, 6 April 1990

On October 31, 1996, the Washington Post ran a follow up story to the San Jose Mercury News series titled “CIA, Contras and Drugs: Questions on Links Linger.” The story drew on court testimony in 1990 of Fabio Ernesto Carrasco, a pilot for a major Columbian drug smuggler named George Morales. As a witness in a drug trial, Carrasco testified that in 1984 and 1985, he piloted planes loaded with weapons for contras operating in Costa Rica. The weapons were offloaded, and then drugs stored in military bags were put on the planes which flew to the United States. “I participated in two [flights] which involved weapons and cocaine at the same time,” he told the court.

Carrasco also testified that Morales provided “several million dollars” to Octaviano Cesar and Adolfo “Popo” Chamorro, two rebel leaders working with the head of the contras’ southern front, Eden Pastora. The Washington Post reported that Chamorro said he had called his CIA control officer to ask if the contras could accept money and arms from Morales, who was at the time under indictment for cocaine smuggling. “They said [Morales] was fine,” Chamorro told the Post.

As you can see, Gary was not off-base in his articles, and what really happened is that he came far too close to connecting up even worse things like Vatican involvement which he probably would have done (and worse) if he had stayed on that.

OK, now did you notice all that double-dealing going on (in the documents above) in relationship to Nicaragua and El Salvador?

That’s what we’re going to go deeper into next here.

What happened in Nicaragua?

1970-1987: The contra war in Nicaragua

Nicaragua is a gorgeous place, truly beautiful.

But it is also Central America’s poorest country, where abject poverty of the native peoples is still being enforced as some sort of punishment for their rebellions – such as the Sandanistas.

nicaragua poverty

Back in 1981, a State Department insider boasted that we would “turn Nicaragua into the Albania of Central America” – that is, poor, isolated and politically blacklisted – so that the Sandinista dream of creating a new, more exemplary political model for Latin America would be in ruins.

This is the unnatural “price” enforced for simply not wanting to be a part of their slave factory.

Nicaragua poorest central american country.

Senate liberal Alan Cranston said that if it turned out not to be possible to destroy the Sandinistas, then we’d just have to let them “fester in [their] own juices.”

How about YOU fester instead – that’s what I say.

Bunch of slimy skekses that you are.

dark crystal skeksis vatican bankWho feed off death like the carrion-fowl they are.

.

As you can see though, this is classic tactics to keep the 2-class system going by the Vatican/British/Anglophile American leaders – the Slavemasters.

Why the interest in Nicaragua? Why punish the people in this modern age?

Oxfam (an international development corporation) stated that, from its experience of working in 76 developing countries, said about the Sandanista government, that: “Nicaragua was…exceptional in the strength of that government’s commitment…to improving the condition of the people and encouraging their active participation in the development process.

If you know your slavemaster 101, you know that as part of the Nesilim/Vatican 2-class system in Central and South America, native lands were simply taken from them against their will, and they were often then made to be as slaves working these same lands. Understandably, they rebelled on more than one occasion, in more than one country. Each time what would cause the slavemasters to “strike” – often using the U.S. military as the scapegoat – was that a leader would arise that wanted to rectify this basically stealing of their land, and give it back.

In Nicaragua, there was a truly substantial effort to address inequities in land ownership and to extend health, educational and agricultural services to poor peasant families.

Oxfam referred to the real reasons for the horrific measures taken against Nicaragua as:

“the threat of a good example.”

 

The success of the Sandinista reforms terrified the slavemasters.

José Figueres

FIGUERES

They were aware that – as José Figueres, the father of Costa Rican democracy, put it – “for the first time, Nicaragua has a government that cares for its people.”

.

How “terrifying”…

come on!.

The contras’ vicious terrorist attacks against what they called “soft targets” – that means raping and killing people – under US orders helped, along with the boycott, to end any hope of economic development and social reform.

US terrorist activities ensured that Nicaragua couldn’t demobilise its army and divert its pitifully poor and limited resources to reconstructing the ruins that were left by the US-backed dictators and Reaganite crimes.

Leaving this, to this day.

nicaragua poverty.

The contras were even funded by the US selling arms to Iran, in what became known as the Iran-Contra Affair.

So, in essence, the US launched a three-fold attack against Nicaragua. First, we exerted extreme pressure to compel the World Bank and Inter-American Development Bank to terminate all projects and assistance.

Second, we launched the contra war along with an illegal economic war to terminate what Oxfam rightly called “the threat of a good example.”

Just that alone, tells you the true nature of these supposed “men of God”  and love and light.

They are monsters.

i cant say i didn't know i look like this - slavemaster.

The contras also carried out a systematic campaign to disrupt the social reform programs of the government. This campaign included attacks on schools, health centers and the majority of the rural population that was sympathetic to the Sandinistas.

Schools for gosh sakes…children!

.

They conducted war on children!

Widespread murder, rape, and torture were also used as tools to destabilize the government and to terrorize the population into collaborating with the Contras.

Throughout this campaign, the contras received military and financial support from the CIA and the Reagan Administration, as well as the Vatican and other hidden financial resources. The Reagan administration engaged in a campaign to alter public opinion on the contras that has been termed “white propaganda”.

One of the most respected Central America correspondents, Julia Preston (who was then working for the Boston Globe), reported that “Administration officials said they are content to see the contras debilitate the Sandinistas by forcing them to divert scarce resources toward the war and away from social programs.”

That’s crucial, since the social programs were at the very heart of their good example that might have “infected” other countries in the region and eroded the Nesilim slavemaster 2-class system of [much higher-grade] exploitation and robbery.

The Contras operated out of camps in the neighboring countries of Honduras to the north and Costa Rica (see Edén Pastora in National Archives docs list earlier) to the south – exchanging guns for drugs which were then brought into the U.S. using the Brotherhood of Eternal Love (John Gale and Robert Tierney) and the Unification Church/Church of Scientology as both cover and distribution networks.

As part of the campaign of economic sabotage in an attempt to combat the Sandinista government, the Contras disrupted shipping by planting underwater mines in Nicaragua’s Corinto harbour, an action condemned by the World Court as illegal. Also as part of this, the Reagan administration imposed a full trade embargo.

If you haven’t read my previous segments related to this, you should definitely read this one, because it goes into (in Popes of the Catholic Church own words, no less) about how there must be a two-class system.

You can guess which class they are in.

leading - is that so raised eyebrows

Here’s a couple examples –

It is not true that all have equal rights in civil society. It is not true that there exists no lawful social hierarchy.

– Pope Pius XI DIVINI REDEMPTORIS (On Atheistic Communism) 19 March 1937

.

My notes are in brackets [..] –

Our own Encyclical on the Reconstruction of the Social Order adapted these principles to present needs.

  • insisting anew on the age-old doctrine of the Church concerning the individual and social character of private property
    [they want to be able to steal people’s land and say they own it]
  • the right and dignity of labor
    [they want you to think it’s good to be a second class citizen – a slave]

 

  • a sound prosperity is to be restored according to the true principles of a sane co-operative system which respects the proper hierarchic structure of society;
    [See, there’s that class thing, them on top, everyone else below – like this image:]

Slavemaster hierarchal society

…he has been endowed by God with many and varied prerogatives:

  • the right to tend toward his ultimate goal in the path marked out for him by God
    [What that really means, is our self-elected god’s “representative” on earth – the Pope – interprets that for everyone, including what class you are “in” as “endowed” by God.]
– Pope Pius XI DIVINI REDEMPTORIS (On Atheistic Communism) 19 March 1937

.

And…since the Pope is the “ultimate ruler” of earth –

… in civil society, God has always willed that there should be a ruling authority, and that they who are invested with it should reflect the divine power and providence in some measure over the human race.

… Over this mighty multitude God has Himself set rulers with power to govern, and He has willed that one should be the head of all, and the chief and unerring teacher of truth, to whom He has given “the keys of the kingdom of heaven.”

[err…that would be the Pope, see how this all just accidentally on purpose always works in the slavemasters favor?]

… [the church] its authority the most exalted of all authority, nor can it be looked upon as inferior to the civil power, or in any manner dependent upon it.

… the only-begotten Son of God established on earth a society which is called the Church, and to it He handed over the exalted and divine office which He had received from His Father, to be continued through the ages to come.

[Their whole claim to fame rests on complete hearsay, you understand there is no proof whatsoever of this “exchange”]

…Then, truly, will the majesty of the law meet with the dutiful and willing homage of the people, when they are convinced that their rulers hold authority from God, and feel that it is a matter of justice and duty to obey them, and to show them reverence and fealty, united to a love not unlike that which children show their parents.

[Here’s a chilling statement]

“Let every soul be subject to higher powers.”

IMMORTALE DEI, Pope Leo XIII, November 1, 1885

.

The Vatican is ergo supposed to be part of or “the” ruler even now, over the earth.

Ok, so if the people in any one of their feudalistic societies around the planet, decide maybe this Pope person isn’t really the rightful ruler over everything, and that they shouldn’t have to bow down to some strange, far away a-hole called the Pope, and decide to live their own lives, in their own homes, in their own countries as they see fit?

That’s when these psychotics call them “communists” and other nasty names and start killing people left, right and center.

Why?

Because their bullshit bible says (conveniently) that it’s the thing to do!

Man cannot be exempted from his divinely-imposed obligations toward civil society, and the representatives of authority – have the right to coerce him when he refuses without reason to do his duty.

– Pope Pius XI DIVINI REDEMPTORIS (On Atheistic Communism) 19 March 1937

to revenge all disobedience…[bible quote]

IMMORTALE DEI, Pope Leo XIII, November 1, 1885.

.

That’s all…pretty bloody-sounding. Notice though, that the whole thing that just drives the slavemasters stark, raving mad? Is being disobeyed.

That, alone, makes it clear that they want slaves, willing, happy (preferably) slaves, but most importantly –

OBEDIENT.

Subservient.

Now, this revenge business takes many forms as part of a complete “whole” revenge plan.

For example – censorship, shunning, marginalizing, the whole “not popular” and “not credible” nasty game – like they did to journalist Gary Webb.

And although José Figueres was the leading democratic figure in Central America for forty years, his “unacceptable insights” were completely censored from the US media that entire time.

censorship

The virulent hatred towards the Sandinistas for trying to direct resources to the poor (and succeeding at it) which was the real “crime” – breaking the class system – was truly amazing to behold.

That’s the thing. No one (that I have seen) has put together the VATICAN involvement in this.

Usually its the “U.S.” that’s targeted. BUT, when you have that “piece” of the puzzle – the Vatican/Nesilim slavemaster views and actions – the whole ugly, world-wide picture suddenly comes into clear focus.

I’ll give you just one example of just what finding that piece can do for showing you the complete picture.

When the Sandanistas overthrew Somoza, the bloody-minded fascist tool of the slavemasters, President Stroessner of Paraguay, provided refuge for him.

Who was he?

Only the man that was harboring and sheltering Josef Mengele, one of the most monstrous Nazis there was during WWII, and with the help of the Vatican!

From The Even Stranger Tale of Scientology, Catholicism, Drug Trafficking and “Reforming” Rebels in Colombia –

The man who was harboring Mengele was Gen. Alfredo Stroessner, the former president of Paraguay whose “career” marked by an uninterrupted 35-year period of repression in his country, made him South America’s most enduring dictator.

Just the way the slavemasters like it, he was yet another Catholic-installed fascist and vicious puppet, who committed numerous atrocities on the people of Paraguay during his reign of terror.

Stroessner provided refuge for Argentina’s Juan Perón (Mr. Odessa files/rat-lines supporter) and Nicaragua’s also bloody dictator Anastasio Somoza Debayle.

Stroessner, the preferred Vatican fascist dictator to keep down any rebellions in Paraguay, was also in tight with the Lyndon Johnson administration (after Kennedy was assassinated), forming the rest of the “picture” here – the U.S. part. Lyndon was the President who was revealed later, to have been completely lying to the American public about the Vietnam War and the real reasons for it.

Here’s Stroessner pictured with President Johnson.

Stroessner_White_House lyndon johnson

.

Lest you think that was just Johnson who would behave so heinously, even worse faked “acts of war” – so then war could be justified against whoever was rebelling against the slavemasters – went on with Cuba as well, in the President Kennedy administration.

From April 30, 2001 –

In his new exposé of the National Security Agency entitled Body of Secrets, author James Bamford highlights  a set of proposals on Cuba by the Joint Chiefs of Staff codenamed OPERATION NORTHWOODS.

  • This document, titled “Justification for U.S. Military Intervention in Cuba” was provided by the JCS to Secretary of Defense Robert McNamara on March 13, 1962, as the key component of Northwoods.  Written in response to a request from the Chief of the Cuba Project, Col. Edward Lansdale, the Top Secret memorandum describes U.S. plans to covertly engineer various pretexts that would justify a U.S. invasion of Cuba.These proposals – part of a secret anti-Castro program known as Operation Mongoose – included*staging the assassinations of Cubans living in the United States,*developing a fake “Communist Cuban terror campaign in the Miami area, in other Florida cities and even in Washington,”*including “sink[ing] a boatload of Cuban refugees (real or simulated),”*faking a Cuban airforce attack on a civilian jetliner, and*concocting a “Remember the Maine” incident by blowing up a U.S. ship in Cuban waters and then blaming the incident on Cuban sabotage.Bamford himself writes that Operation Northwoods “may be the most corrupt plan ever created by the U.S. government.”

.

So how did this group start?

The Sandinista National Liberation Front
(Spanish: Frente Sandinista de Liberación Nacional, FSLN)

.

Its members are called Sandinistas. The Sandinistas took their name from Augusto César Sandino (1895–1934), who was the leader of Nicaragua’s rebellion against the US occupation of the country during the early 20th century (ca. 1922–1934).

Augusto César Sandino

Sandino

Sandino was assassinated in 1934 by the Nicaraguan National Guard (Guardia Nacional), the US-equipped police force of Anastasio Somoza, a vicious and hated dictator, installed by the slavemasters. His family ruled the country from 1936 until they were overthrown by the Sandinistas in 1979.

Anastasio Somoza

somoza

From 1960 through 1978, the New York Times had exactly three editorials on Nicaragua. It’s not that nothing was happening there – it’s just that whatever was happening was “unremarkable”. Nicaragua was of no concern at all, as long as Somoza’s tyrannical rule wasn’t challenged.

In the ten years prior to the overthrow of the Nicaraguan dictator Anastasio Somoza in 1979, US television – all networks – devoted exactly one hour to Nicaragua, and that was entirely on the Managua earthquake of 1972.

Somoza visiting President Nixon in 1971

somoza in washington with Nixon 1971

On December 23, 1972, a powerful earthquake leveled the capital city, Managua. The earthquake killed 10,000 of the city’s 400,000 residents and left another 50,000 homeless. About 80% of Managua’s commercial buildings were destroyed.

After the 1972 earthquake, the US sent an enormous amount of aid to Nicaragua.

President Anastasio Somoza Debayle’s National Guard embezzled much of the international aid that flowed into the country to assist in reconstruction, and several parts of downtown Managua were never rebuilt. The president gave reconstruction contracts preferentially to family and friends, thereby profiting from the quake and increasing his control of the city’s economy. By some estimates, his personal wealth soared to US$400 million in 1974.

Death and Destruction = Profit
to these insane people.

money-5.

The Roman Catholic Church’s relationship with the Sandinistas is referred to by some as “extremely complex”.

Well, that’s certainly one way of putting it.

Vincent_Price

.

It’s really just trying to downplay what happened, which is not actually complex at all.

Under Somoza, the Roman Catholic Church was recognized as the official religion and church-run schools flourished.

Wow! Imagine that. They’re in first place somehow.

sarcasm little guy

And when the Sandinistas were first moving into power, the Catholic church pretended to support them, probably in the hopes of spying on them through infiltration and weakening them from the inside – which is typical of their leaderships tactics.

The Catholic hierarchy initially “disapproved” of the Sandinistas’ revolutionary struggle against the Somoza dynasty. In fact, the revolutionaries were perceived as proponents of “godless communism” that posed a threat to the traditionally privileged place that the Church occupied within Nicaraguan society.

See? Worried about their 2-class system going to hell and gone.

And that’s it.

Well that's that then - hand gesture

 

They don’t care about the people.

They only care about keeping in power, keeping in their “high” class and everyone else beneath them.

That's_our_master__-_Igor.

Nevertheless, the world-wide exposure of the increasing corruption and repression characterizing the Somoza rule – and mind you, only because their role in supporting this psycho-fuck was getting exposed showing them to be the monsters that they are – combined with the growing obviousness that the Sandinistas would emerge victorious, now they pretended to be supportive.

Throughout the revolutionary struggle, the Sandinistas enjoyed the grassroots support of clergy who were influenced by the propaganda campaign of “reforming zeal” (Vatican II) and dedicated to a “preferential option for the poor”.

That’s not too obvious at all, is it? The people that are covertly helping keep them in this position are pretending to have had a “change of heart”.

Oh, no, they didn’t.

no shaking head.

One of the ways you can tell that, is that the Catholic church created “Christian base communities” (CEBs) in which lower level clergy and laity took part in “consciousness raising initiatives” to educate the peasants about the real reasons for the violence they were suffering from.

You can just imagine what those would be – anything but the Catholic Church, right?

In trying to keep up a good “cover” of being supportive of the revolutionaries, one priest, Father Gaspar García Laviana, took up arms and became a member of FSLN.

As if that’s going to help cover the stench of what his church leaders are busy financing –

vatican pope covered with slime2

You know, the very people raping and killing all over the countryside that these priests are supposedly educating the peasants as to the “real cause” of.

On that note, I think its incumbent on us to examine Somoza’s real role a bit deeper, and dredge up all those very real activities that are anything but “supportive of the people” –  starting with Nelson Rockefeller.

Anastasio Somoza and Nelson Rockefeller

.

Strange coinkedinks –

Nelson Rockefeller. Clashed with Scientology back in 1955 over the “Siberia Bill”. Scientology claimed his aide gave Michael Flynn a $135,000 donation. – Lamont.

Who’s Who In Scientology by Martin Hunt

Now there’s an odd thing for scientology (which meant Mark Rathbun and David Miscavige) to claim, wouldn’t you say?

Especially considering initial funding of scientology.

In my post titled: Old Charles Manson Articles + More about Scientology’s Drug and CIA Connections we learned about something called the Psychedelic Rangers. John Starr Cooke, the man who headed it, was also a CIA asset and early scientologist who had helped bring in Rockefeller money to Hubbard’s Dianetic Research Foundation, for laundering out to CIA research projects going on at that time, such as ones concerning LSD, Benzedrine and Mescaline, in addition to trying to come up with instrumentation (like the e-meter) to help their ‘forced speech’ – interrogation – interests.

John Cooke ‘mastered’ the techniques of Dianetics, and together with Mary Oser (wife of Peter Oser, grandson of J.D. Rockefeller) flew back to Switzerland and began auditing Peter – Mr. got-bucks. With the result being, that Peter essentially becoming a follower of Cooke and began funneling huge amounts of money to John and the HDRF (Hubbard Dianetics Research Foundation).

Not to mention that at this time, one of Ron Hubbard’s closest allies in the original Dianetic Research Foundation, Charles Parker Morgan, was in fact an OSS man himself during WWII. As was Hubbard, in concert with Naval intelligence.

So, you’ll excuse me if I find it rather interesting that David Miscavige and Mark Rathbun et al, claimed that Nelson Rockefeller funded a lawsuit against scientology. I’ll leave it at that. For now…

Let’s talk more about Nelson Rockefeller, and the OSS.

The OSS was a pretty nasty intelligence organization, formed and backed by both the Vatican and the British nobility/intelligence agencies. Some of it’s main top people helped to launder NAZI money stolen from mostly jewish people.

At the end of WWII, within two days of disbanding of the OSS, the more “dirty” and ill-gotten gains from war-torn Europe (entire intelligence networks as well) were quickly moved under an offshore shadow corporation.

William Donovan (head of the OSS) and William Stephenson (MI6 – British Intelligence) with the help of James Forgan’s law firm and Donovan’s, registered* a corporation in Panama called the British American Canadian Corporation S.A.

*This marks the first use of Panama as a money-laundering locale using corporate fronts.

The Library of Congress Ogilvy Business File series verifies that the initial organization, The British American Canadian Corporation, the BACC, was founded in 1945. The Intrepid Society refers to it as a “trading corporation.” and that it was “a group heavily involved in rehabilitation and development of national economies which had suffered, or been deprived of markets during the war.”

Been deprived of markets? Now there’s a euphemism if I ever heard one, for what really happened there. Oh, what a world of deception and pain! – are contained in just those few words.

The reason that it’s head office was in New York City, is because that’s where William Stephenson – code name Intrepid – had his headquarters. He was the head of all intelligence operations by the British in the U.S. pre-during-and-post World War II, through an office created just for that purpose called the British Security Coordinator.

– See my British Security Coordination Compendium series in the Reading Library World Government section.

The forming of the British American Canadian corporation was all part of the “arrangements” to be made for “prominent individuals”, as it was termed, during the end days of World War II. Accordingly, Stephenson’s office did not officially close until nine months after the Japanese surrendered in August 1945.

Concurrent with forming the final form of British intelligence in America, the CIA, the BACC changed its name to the World Commerce Corporation, with its head office being located in New York City. (April 2, 1947)

This is the exact organization that was the archetype for the MI6 cover organization called Universal Exports in the James Bond books.

James Bond

The roll-over corporation (World Commerce Corporation) was also registered in Panama in order to “put its financial dealings outside the scrutiny of either the British, American, or Canadian governments”.

What that really means is not so much the governments, it was the people that those governments would inevitably inform, that’s who they were afraid of. They were afraid of the public vilification and calls for justice that would be bound to happen. Both of which they richly deserved for their heinous dealings and profiteering off of those who had needlessly suffered and died, let alone involving half the world in a War whose only real purpose was to enrich these same bloodless ghouls and propel them into world-rulership at long last.

James Russell Forgan by Virginia McClaughry

“…propel them into world-rulership at long last.”

That, in case you didn’t know, is the Nesilim way.

.

In the roots of the Catholic Church, the Nesilim (in the area of Turkey), the King’s most important role was that he was the chief priest of the land, and was the conduit of “the gods”.

No of Chartres wrote to Pope Paschal II: “When kingdom and priesthood are as one, in complete accord, the world is well ruled

IMMORTALE DEI, Pope Leo XIII, November 1, 1885

.

These two corporations formed in Panama (really just one with two different names) were part of an idea/operation already in place before the War even ended. Sworn testimony before the US Senate indicates that during World War II an “organization” did exist which was “formed by Lord Shaw­cross of Eng­land and Mr. Her­mann Abs of Ger­many to bring about a Magna Carta for the pro­tec­tion of for­eign invest­ments of World War II.”

It’s been said that this organization helped protect certain financial interests exclusively and ergo aided in laundering money siezed by the Nazis, to Argentina, Nelson Rockefeller’s territory during the war. According to US Treasury Agent reports, in 1941, (when the U.S. entered the War), all of the branches of Amer­i­can banks in France under Ger­man con­trol were closed, except two. The two banks had direct ties to Dr. Hermann Josef Abs of Deutsche Bank, the then financial advisor to Hitler’s government. Those two banks were: Mor­gan et Cie (which was a Rothschild concern)and Chase of New York which my family tree members the Forgans and Halstead Freeman were involved with.

The reason the above is mentioned is because accord­ing to Nurem­berg records, Hermann Abs’s Deutsche Bank was the main con­duit for laun­der­ing Nazi money into Argentina, which was done under the super­vi­sion of Mar­tin Bor­mann.

Here’s where we cross into Scientology (again) L Ron Hubbard, and the Echavarria family.

.

The Echavarria family of Colombia (who had business offices in Panama as well) created a branch of that same Deutsche Bank.

It was called: Deutsche Bank Antioqueño.

Reference: Series: 100 Empresarios. Historias de Vida: Alejandro Echavarría Isaza

Deutsche Antioquia Bank, or Banco Aleman Antiogueno was established in 1912 with head office at Bremen, but specifically to do business in Columbia. The local merchants of Medellin contributed about 25 per cent of the capital and German merchants, principally of Bremen, about 75 per cent.

Reference – Report on Cooperation in American Export Trade: (In Two Parts …, Part 1, published 1916.

This bank was involved in laundering Nazi assets (primarily from stealing them from Jews that they killed). In fact, it was investigated for just that, as these National Archives show.

Also see Banco Comercial Antioqueño: Relationship To Adolf Held And Deutsche Antioquia Bank › Page 18 – Fold3.com

.

It has now been proven that the parent bank – Deutsche Bank – was involved in financing the construction of the Auschwitz death camp and clearly shows that money/property taken from the jews (and the profits therein) were laundered through this bank.

FRANKFURT— Historians combing through Deutsche Bank AG archives have found evidence that the biggest German bank helped finance construction of the Auschwitz death camp, the chief historian of the bank said Thursday.

Manfred Pohl, director of the bank’s historical institute, said it was the first time that Deutsche Bank had been linked to the financing of companies that built the Nazi death camp. Other recently unearthed documents showed that the bank serviced accounts for the Gestapo, the Nazi secret police, which deposited proceeds from auctions of property confiscated from deported Jews, he said.

Deutsche Bank Linked To Auschwitz Funding by John Schmid Published: February 5, 1999

The son of one of these fine pillars of the Colombian community sarcasm was Fernando Echavarria and he was personally audited and trained in Dianetics and Scientology techniques by Ron Hubbard in the 1950’s. Many more of his family members got into Hubbard’s little behavior-modification day camp called scientology, and some continue to support it to this day.

Deutsche Bank had a long relationship with the British and Vatican (and American) slavemasters and their bankers. In fact, around the time this branch in Colombia was founded by the Echavarria’s et al., another company based on oil exploration of Mesopotamia came into being.

From my posting in our CIA de-classified document library entitled: Near East Operations – #14A – Chief Agent Iraq – The ‘Dentist’ and The “Oil Man”

Since Mesopotamia was part of the Ottoman Empire, early negotiations for an oil concession centered on the capital of the empire, Constantinople, [now called Istanbul] where the Ottoman sultan and his government resided. The first interest was shown by German Empire banks and companies, who were already involved in the building of the Berlin-Baghdad railway, followed by British interests. In 1911, in an attempt to bring together competing British and German interests in the region, a British company known as African and Eastern Concession Ltd was formed.

In 1912, this company became the Turkish Petroleum Company (TPC), formed with the purpose of acquiring concessions from the Ottoman Empire to explore for oil in Mesopotamia. The owners were a group of large European companies – Deutsche Bank, the Anglo Saxon Oil Company (a subsidiary of Royal Dutch/Shell), the National Bank of Turkey (a British concern) – and Turkish-born Armenian businessman Calouste Gulbenkian. The driving force behind its creation was Gulbenkian, and the largest single shareholder was the British Government-controlled Anglo-Persian Oil Company, which by 1914 held 50% of the shares.

When the Ottoman Empire was broken up in the aftermath of the war, [ THE REAL TARGET OF WORLD WAR I ] the question of shareholding in TPC became a major issue at the 1920 San Remo conference, where the future of all non-Turkish and Arab-majority areas of the former Ottoman Empire were substantially decided.

In 1927 Oil was found in the Kirkuk district, which if you notice, is the location of one of the new OSS agents, who works for IPC.

On 31 July 1928 the shareholders signed a formal partnership agreement to include the Near East Development Corporation (NEDC).

A consortium of five large US oil companies that included Standard Oil of New Jersey (later Exxon, eventually ExxonMobil in 1999), Standard Oil Company of New York (Socony) (later Mobil, which eventually amalgamated to ExxonMobil), Gulf Oil (which later merged with Chevron in 1984), the Pan-American Petroleum and Transport Company, and Atlantic Richfield Co. (later ARCO; eventually acquired by BP in 1999).

Shares were held in the following proportions: 23.75% each to the Anglo-Persian Oil Company (which in 1935 became the Anglo-Iranian Oil Company (AIOC) and in 1954 the British Petroleum Company, later BP), Royal Dutch/Shell, the Compagnie Française des Pétroles (CFP, which in 1991 became Total), and the NEDC; and the remaining 5% to Calouste Gulbenkian.

Since the 5 supposedly American-only Oil companies were actually dominated by various British interests, this effectively meant that Britain controlled almost 50 percent of THIS new agreement – as well.

.

TPC was to be organized as a nonprofit company, registered in Britain.

The agreement, known as Red Line Agreement after a red line was drawn around the former boundaries of the Ottoman Empire (with the exception of Kuwait), effectively bound the partners to act together within the red line. The Agreement lasted until 1948 when two of the American partners broke free. During the period, IPC monopolized oil exploration inside the Red Line; excluding Saudi Arabia and Bahrain, where ARAMCO ( formed in 1944 by renaming of the Saudi subsidiary of Standard Oil of California (Socal)) and Bahrain Petroleum Company (BAPCO) respectively held controlling position.

In 1929 the TPC was renamed the Iraq Petroleum Company.

By 1934, the NEDC comprised only two shareholders, Standard Oil of New Jersey and Socony, which had merged with the Vacuum Oil Company to form Socony-Vacuum in 1931.

So, there’s that to consider too.

All that oil dickering around for control, was one of the purviews of a slavemaster step-n-fetch it banker – Rockefeller.

The Rockefellers, while often pointed to by disingenuous (and in some cases downright lying) people as “the” bad guys, are just bankers.

They are junior, like IGOR to Dr. Frankenstein, and they do what they are told.

come igor rockefeller - slavemaster.

Coming back to Deutsche Bank again, I had said earlier –

These two corporations formed in Panama (really just one with two different names) were part of an idea/operation already in place before the War even ended. Sworn testimony before the US Senate indicates that during World War II an “organization” did exist which was “formed by Lord Shaw­cross of Eng­land and Mr. Her­mann Abs of Ger­many to bring about a Magna Carta for the pro­tec­tion of for­eign invest­ments of World War II.”

It’s been said that this organization helped protect certain financial interests exclusively and ergo aiding in laundering money siezed by the Nazis during the war, to Argentina, Nelson Rockefeller’s territory during the war.

The reason the above is mentioned is because accord­ing to Nurem­berg records, Hermann Abs’s Deutsche Bank was the main con­duit for laun­der­ing Nazi money into Argentina which was done under the super­vi­sion of Mar­tin Bor­mann.

 

Despite this blatant complicity, the Amer­i­can side of the war crimes inves­ti­ga­tion of Abs was dropped!

And as I understand it, Abs was even appointed eco­nomic adviser for the British zone of Ger­many, which is where we end up back at the World Commerce Corporation again, as they were one of the main corporations to profit from that particular monopolized position.

So, basically they moved much of these ill-gotten assets they were stealing from multiple countries and it’s people during the WWII, to the World Commerce Corporation – then turned around and  sarcasm ever so benevolently doled out some pittances (proportionately) to the countries they had helped tear up in the first place! And the rest of what they needed? They made them take out loans – loans out of their own fallen comrades and people’s money!

Now that’s sick.

horror

In fact, Allen Dulles, one of the consulting attorneys for the World Commerce Corporation, had an assis­tant named Frank Wis­ner (Galen organization) who was the State Department’s deputy for Cur­rency and Eco­nomic Reform in the Amer­i­can zone of West Ger­many. In a strange coincidence  sarcasm one of the biggest “trade” areas controlled by the World Commerce Corporation is also the new home of the fleeing Nazis, Argentina.

How was this money moved during the War?

It went through Curacao and then to Argentina.

.

And…Hermann Abs’s Deutsche Bank (as well as the Colombian Echavarria branch) was the starting point of this main con­duit for laun­der­ing Nazi money into Argentina. This was all done under the super­vi­sion of Mar­tin Bor­mann.

If you have read my last segment of this research – Things That Will Never Make The News Sites #571 – Why Scientology is in Colombia (Hint: It’s not about “calming violence”) you’re already familiar with what I’m about to say next.

For those of you that aren’t, in brief, the Vatican made a deal with Hitler’s government that basically got them, as a tax mind you, a percentage of all the profits from seized and stripped assets from the jews and other “undesirables”.

The Vatican also helped to hide and spirit out of Europe into South America, lots of Nazis, some of which were serious monsters such as Klaus Barbie (hid in Bolivia) Adolf Eichmann, and Josef Mengele (Paraguay).

The Vatican took the profits and the Nazis, and used them to start the cocaine drug trade, and to finance death squads and wholesale annihilation of native peoples, as well as to put in place fascist dictators who would hold the people in their place within the Nesilim/Catholic 2-class feudalism.

Vatican bankers helped to launder the profits from the biggest cocaine drug dealers, Sarez, a Klaus Barbie protege’, and Pablo Escobar (Suarez’s junior) of Colombia, as well as financed acts of violence and terrorism against rebellions against their dictators – such as Somoza, for example.

And fascist “religious” cult dictator L. Ron Hubbard (and his equally fascist successor David Miscavige) are right there in the middle of all this horrific nastiness against the peoples of the world.

I’m not just talking out of my hat here, for full details read the post.

Now, this whole area – all of South America, was entrusted to Nelson Rockefeller during WWII, by Vatican/British/Anglophile American slavemasters.

Adolf Hitler, the designated “bad guy” of WWII was a total PUPPET. Or as we call them today, a sock-puppet of the British/Nesilim slavemasters.

sockpuppets from history hitler lincoln

One reason he was useful to the slavemasters was to teach the world a “lesson”. To point the finger at and “defeat” so now we’re all safe from the “new world order” that really we all just landed smack into the slavery of after WWII.

My husband wrote about this topic, in his book.

The people in the world were supposed to be so horrified by this war [WWII] that they would gladly accept world government as a solution to wars – behavior modification by war.

The Round Table members in the United States, such as the Rockefellers, were financing Adolf Hitler and Nazi Germany. They also started and financed the eugenics movement in the United States and Germany. In 1933, Hitler came to power as dictator of Germany.

– Mike McClaughry, Scientology Roots Chapter 21-2 The First Scientologists and their Masters.

.

Note: and that’s exactly when the Vatican made their deal with him.

So, when you look at this picture of installed dictator Anastasio Somoza and Nelson Rockefeller from 1964? You’ll understand what you’re really looking at here now.

.

And remember…Rockefeller is only an Igor in comparison to his masters. Pointing to him and acting like he is the be-all and end-all is just plain misdirection. It’s as stupid as pointing Igor as who made the Frankenstein monster.

You get my point.

Now that you have a better understanding of the real forces involved in this tiny little country of Nicaragua, we can move on to what happened there in greater detail.

* * *

.

The “communist” false flag operation

.

As we touched one earlier, the slavemasters are forever inventing “attacks” (that are fully orchestrated by them) which they then use to start wars – or rather to “sell” them to people to fight the wars for them.

One of these, is “communism”.

When you see that slur, or it’s twin of “nationalism”, you know you’re dealing with a slavemaster propaganda campaign – one way or another.

Take for example Pope Pius XI. Mister the world has to suffer.

Let them remember that the world will never be able to rid itself of misery, sorrow and tribulation…

– Pope Pius XI DIVINI REDEMPTORIS (On Atheistic Communism) 19 March 1937

(and they’ll make sure of it).

Notice what the title of his directive to the Catholics was- On Atheistic Communism.

Now, this thing is just filled with the worst imaginable hypocrisies, it just has to be seen to be believed, but one of the things that it does is to accuse “atheistic communism” as being the cause of “troubles” around the world.

That is just plain FALSE.

But, one of the places you see this propagated is in descriptions of the rebels in Nicaragua. You see, they are all russian agents of one kind or another (we’re supposed to believe).

What’s particularly ludicrous about that is the long, long, LONG history of the slavemasters working with the Russians and their intelligence apparatus to bring about conflicts and wars. The Protocols of Zion, Lord Melville and the “anarchist” false flag operations utilizing Casimir Pilenas Palmer and his brother (in both).

The kind of thing you see said about the Sandinistas, would be things like this – Wikipedia being a notorious mouthpiece for this kind of crap, without factoring in the larger picture.

According to Cambridge University historian Christopher Andrew, who undertook the task of processing the Mitrokhin Archive, Carlos Fonseca Amador, one of the original three founding members of the FSLN had been recruited by the KGB in 1959 while on a trip to Moscow. This was one part of Aleksandr Shelepin’s ‘grand strategy’ of using national liberation movements as a spearhead of the Soviet Union’s foreign policy in the Third World, and in 1960 the KGB organized funding and training for twelve individuals that Fonseca handpicked. These individuals were to be the core of the new Sandinista organization. In the following several years, the FSLN tried with little success to organize guerrilla warfare against the government of Luis Somoza Debayle. After several failed attempts to attack government strongholds and little initial support from the local population, the National Guard nearly annihilated the Sandinistas in a series of attacks in 1963. Disappointed with the performance of Shelepin’s new Latin American “revolutionary vanguard”, the KGB reconstituted its core of the Sandinista leadership into the ISKRA group and used them for other activities in Latin America.

According to Andrew, Mitrokhin says during the following three years the KGB handpicked several dozen Sandinistas for intelligence and sabotage operations in the United States. Andrew and Mitrokhin say that in 1966, this KGB-controlled Sandinista sabotage and intelligence group was sent to northern Mexico near the US border to conduct surveillance for possible sabotage.

In July 1961 during the Berlin Crisis of 1961 KGB chief Alexander Shelepin sent a memorandum to Soviet premier Nikita Khrushchev containing an array of proposals to create a situation in various areas of the world which would favor dispersion of attention and forces by the US and their satellites, and would tie them down during the settlement of the question of a German peace treaty and West Berlin. It was planned, inter alia, to organize an armed mutiny in Nicaragua in coordination with Cuba and with the “Revolutionary Front Sandino”. Shelepin proposed to make appropriations from KGB funds in addition to the previous assistance $10,000 for purchase of arms.

Khrushchev sent the memo with his approval to his deputy Frol Kozlov and on August 1 it was, with minor revisions, passed as a CPSU Central Committee directive. The KGB and the Soviet Ministry of Defense were instructed to work out more; specific measures and present them for consideration by the Central Committee.

Beginning in 1967, the Cuban General Intelligence Directorate, or DGI, had begun to establish ties with various Nicaraguan revolutionary organizations.

By 1970 the DGI had managed to train hundreds of Sandinista guerrilla leaders and had vast influence over the organization. After the successful ousting of Somoza, DGI involvement in the new Sandinista government expanded rapidly.

Other researchers have documented the contribution made from other Warsaw Pact intelligence agencies to the fledgling Sandinista government including the East German Stasi, by using recently declassified documents from Berlin as well as from former Stasi spymaster Markus Wolf who described the Stasi’s assistance in the creation of a secret police force modeled on East Germany’s.

.

Oh, ok. The Russians did it.

sarcasm little guy

But, see? It supports the agreed upon propaganda of the Vatican, the British, and the anglophilic American counterparts.

The “communists” did it.

No, they didn’t.

Rebels = communists is just too obvious as a false flag attack ploy.

How does the Brotherhood of Eternal Love fit into this?
Brief expanded overview

 

Reprising part of my original overview statements concerning Central America/Nicaragua –

The Contras operated out of camps in the neighboring countries of Honduras to the north and Costa Rica (see Edén Pastora in National Archives docs list earlier) to the south – exchanging guns for drugs which were then brought into the U.S. using the Brotherhood of Eternal Love (John Gale and Robert Tierney) and the Unification Church/Church of Scientology as both cover and distribution networks.

Have a look at this first –

#10 – Daily Independent Journal (San Rafael, California) December 16, 1970, Wednesday p.4; Metzger Is Indicted By Grand Jury

The affidavit attached to the search warrant said that the same informant had led to arrests of persons involved with a bargeload of marijuana in Southern California and to a big cocaine haul in San Francisco.

Appendix: Text of scientology’s Jerry McDonald and Brotherhood of Eternal Love News Articles

.

You see that name Metzger? He acted as an attorney for BEL (Brotherhood of Eterna Love) members. Scientologists Jerry McDonald and Guardian’s office head of intelligence for the U.S. caught him up in a bit of a sideways sting operation which served two functions. The first was that it took attention of what scientology (Ron Hubbard) was actually doing, the second was that it helped the CIA with their “re-arranging of assets” in relation to the drug trade

The two men who came out of this turf war “A-ok” and who did the slavemasters dirty work for some years – were John Gale and Robert Tierney.

Just how much Tierney actually knew, is debatable but one thing is for certain, he knew the drugs they were selling in southern California (and Northern) were coming from Contra soldiers, and the money was going TO them.

John Gale must have got himself in some kind of trouble with his “masters”, because he ran himself into a fence which decapitated him, in the early 1980’s. Maybe he finally grew a conscience over helping to finance the raping and killing of thousands of innocent people throughout central and south america – I don’t know.

But, I think Tierney (nicknamed “stubby”) continued for some time after Gale’s death.

Rainbow Surfboards co-founder and Brotherhood of Eternal Love member John Gale, was referred to as a Jesus look-alike. He was the extrovert son of a wealthy Newport Beach boat manufacturer who also owned a Harley-Davidson distributorship.

John Gale and David N. (1971)

An older (2015) movie trailer from a documentary being made about the Brotherhood –

.

As I said, while most of the Brotherhood was taken down or marginalized in planned drug “busts” as part of the CIA takeover of the drug-trade, John Gale, dubbed the Cocaine King of California, went on to earn millions of dollars dealing drugs.

In the early 1970s, brotherhood member “thumper” went to Peru on a surfing safari with John Gale. He was nicknamed “thumper” because of a nervous tic where he would tap his right foot very rapidly.

.

_Thumper_.

“We went to this fishing village called Chicama,” Thumper says. “We surfed the perfect wave. It was a mile-long perfect left. It was absolutely the best wave I have ever seen in my life. Gale paid for the trip. We stayed there seven days. And on the third day there, Johnny says, ‘I need to use your surfboard. I’m going to another place and I’m probably going to be gone the night.” Gale headed over a surf break with Thumper’s board, returning shortly before they were to fly back to Orange County. When they landed at LAX, Gale handed him $500.

“He says, ‘Here, Thump.’ And I’m like, ‘What the hell’s that for?'” Gale laughed—and then explained that he’d stashed eight ounces of pure cocaine in the tail fin of Thumper’s board.

“They didn’t tell me about it because it would make me nervous,” he says. Thumper threw the money in Gale’s face. “I was pissed. I wasn’t 14 anymore. I was big. And I said, ‘You know what? That is fucked up. I could have ended up in prison. You’re a fucking prick.’ At that point, I knew everything had changed, because I was a patsy.

– Orange County Weekly magazine article.

.

John Gale later hooked up with the Suarez/Escobar operation and away they went.

Also involved was Robert “Stubby” Tierney. When guru Timothy Leary was arrested, Stubby left Orange County within months and headed to San Francisco.

Stubby then –

Stubby now –

On January 21, 1970, Leary received a 10-year sentence for his 1968 BEL-related drug offense, with a further 10 added later while in custody for a prior arrest in 1965, for a total of 20 years to be served consecutively. On his arrival in prison, he was given psychological tests used to assign inmates to appropriate work details.

Mellon laundered the BEL drug money in the same places the Vatican was.

Timothy Leary and Billy Mellon Hitchcock

In a truly ironic twist, having designed some of these tests himself (including the “Leary Interpersonal Behavior Test”), Leary answered them in such a way that he seemed to be a very conforming, conventional person with a great interest in forestry and gardening. As a result, he was assigned to work as a gardener in a lower-security prison from which he escaped in September 1970, saying that his non-violent escape was a humorous prank and leaving a challenging note for the authorities to find after he was gone.

Stubby was one of the main people who helped arrange Leary’s escape through raising the funds needed – Leary dodged him the rest of his life and never paid him back, a factor contributing to leaving Stubby to end up basically penniless and eating at soup kitchens later in life.

After the whole get-Leary-out thing, Stubby headed to Mexico, and thanks to his connections with the Mexican mafia, carried papers identifying himself as a federal agent investigating marijuana smuggling. Posing as a narc, he conned his way onto the Brotherhood’s yacht, which had been confiscated in Mazatlan. “I couldn’t believe it, but I got the boat out of there,” he says.

the brotherhood of eternal love “medallion”

the_brotherhood_of_eternal_love_medallion

It was Stubby that had the connections to drug lord Pedro Aviles.

This is now 1971, and that yacht was the schooner Aafje, which was being used to cart huge loads of marijuana around in.

Some years back I had done quite a bit of research on this boat, which is another blog post here that didn’t make it through the last change-around of our blog, but it will eventually end up in the Reading Library.

Here’s a bit of the Aafje information that pertains to this time period.

If you are familiar with my Elusive Jerry McDonald post, and how scientology’s Guardian’s Office intelligence head Terry Milner and Jerry were actually smuggling guns and marijuana and doing “sea org drills” in exactly this same area, you’ll understand the significance of finally finding the date of exactly where the Aafje was when it was being “picked up” by BEL member Stubby. In fact, it was July of 1970, just months before Stubby’s picking up the Aafje, that Jerry’s boat the Makaira was busted for running drugs and guns in San Francisco.

makaira 2

Which Jerry Mcdonald walked away from and was exonerated from any charges, no less.

Got tons of provably stolen guns? Hey, no problemo! You can go now. What’s a few guns between men…

wiley oh wow

.

The Aafje met up with Eddie Padilla at Manzanillo in early 1970. It had been sailed from St. Thomas, and it was now crewed by a half dozen other Brotherhood of Eternal Love members  – who had never sailed before in their lives. Eddie had been working for the last year or so, with “Papa” – Pedro Aviles Perez. “Papa” was the Sinaloan marijuana supplier of the Brotherhood. It had been Eddie’s dream to purchase a boat, which he planned to use to smuggle hashish from Pakistan back to the States. Eddie referred to himself as a “spiritual warrior” and the purchase of the boat signified, to him, a fulfilling of a dream. That dream, apparently began with loading up the Aafje with over 1500 kilograms of the best Sinaloan marijuana, while it stood anchor just outside the twelve mile limit. Motor launch after motor launch disgorged their loads to the stately old Aafje, and then, with Eddie and all that “Maui Wowie” material now aboard – they set sail for Maui.

Eddie Padilla

.

It’s probably largely due to the fact that Jerry McDonald was working on an undercover government (CIA) project with Terry Milner of the Guardian’s office, that the Aafje was even confiscated in Mazatlan.

Note also, that Mazatlan, where Stubby retrieved the confiscated schooner, is directly in Sinoloa which is the Mexican marijuana drug lord “Papa” Pedro Aviles territory.

Sinaloa Mexico.

Jerry, a trained assassin and all around hard-case, was a personal favorite of L. Ron Hubbard. Jerry had even donated some rather expensive ships to Hubbard’s fleet – that was essentially a civilian CIA front group called the “Sea Organization”. OSS man Paul Helliwell had created that model referred to as “Sea Supply” which ran drugs for guns as part of the usual financing of the overthrow of rebellions against the slavemaster rule-the-world types.

Jerry had been assigned to “train” sea org members in Los Angeles in the late 1960’s, and was conveniently sailing around the exact same area that the Brotherhood of Eternal Love was. Jerry had even made a bit of a “base” in the Baja, California area.

The Aafje

The Aafje large

Prior to Eddy getting ahold of the Aafje, it had been running around the Caribbean, last seen in Grenada with her somewhat documented owner who was a 6 foot 7 inch tall man (nicknamed Dr. Demento) who had it in Grenada in late 1969 early 1970.

Ref – The Caribbean Compass: The first time I saw my “perfect boat”, Clover

Grenada, happens to be right by Curacao where as luck would have it, Vatican and CIA men had a number of offshore money-laundering operations going on to launder Chinese white heroin profits.

In my two previous segments (#1 and #2) I went into a lot of detail concerning Vatican involvement in this arena. Briefly, it’s in this exact time period that Michael Sindona, Vatican banker, begin working very closely with an American bishop (who would later become an Archbishop) – catholic Paul Marcinkus.

.Paul Marcinkus

marcinkus

Maricnkus was a priest ordained in Chicago, who then transferred to the Vatican where he was also a protege’ of the infamous Nazi-loving catholic cardinal Giovanni Montini who became Pope John Paul VI.

Montini

cardinal_montini

In 1950 he moved to Rome to study canon law at the Gregorian University, where he become close to Giovanni Battista Montini, who would later become John Paul VI. Moving into the Vatican Secretariat of State in 1952., Marcinkus spent the following two decades serving both Pope John XXIII and his successor Pope Paul VI as chief English translator.

The Banco Ambrosiana Affair By Jules Gray, Thursday, March 20th, 2014

 

In 1971, the Pope named Marcinkus as head of the Vatican Bank – the IOR (Institute of Religious Works).

By then, Sindona and Marcinkus’s off-shore capital flight scheme is in place, IOR money is flowing out of the country to banks all over Europe, Latin America, the United States and the Caribbean. This is just one year before American L. Ron Hubbard forms his Religious Research Foundation and hundreds of millions of dollars begin flowing through it.

A pact had been made between Roberto Calvi, Michael Sindona, Licio Gelli and Ortolani, to accelerate Roberto Calvi’s career up the ladder at Banco Ambrosiano, you can see the significance of making American Paul Marcinkus head of the Vatican Bank only two years after this 1969 pact.

Marcinkus was to represent the Vatican bank in this new arrangement, and Licio Gelli and Umberto Ortolani would handle “political” details.

Note: ALL this was happening before the big switch to cocaine by the slavemasters would begin, that BEL members Stubby and John Gale would play a major role in. Stubby spent the next two years on the boat, traveling the Pacific and eventually the Panama Canal (where the CIA had installed another drug-lord dictator – Manual Noriega). It was in Panama where, in 1973, Stubby was captured and deported. He spent the next year at Lompoc Federal Penitentiary.

Again, this re-arranging of “drug lords” was all part of the CIA/Vatican/British elements taking over the drug trade with the formation of the DEA, which was actually spear-headed by a CIA agent named Terrence Brooke (which most people didn’t know that at the time). See Scientologists help the CIA take over the Drug Trade – Nixon Era.

Here’s Terrence receiving a CIA medal for his “work” in Vietnam – which is where the whole drugs-for-guns Sea Supply scenario was still going on. This is just prior to his new assignment of getting control of the drug trade and ousting the Brotherhood of Eternal love.

CIA operative Terrence Burke receiving star of valor from admiral rayburn

BEL (brotherhood of eternal love) member Stubby was a straggler, a round-him-up kind of situation for this whole take-down operation.

I say that because it was in 1972 – August 5, that the largest narcotics raid that had ever taken place in California happened. Police from Laguna Beach to Oregon to Maui to Kabul, Afghanistan, raided dozens of houses and 53 members of Brotherhood were arrested, but not all of them and they secretly continued to import hashish for several more years.

Of course, Stubby’s buddy, John Gale, Mr. Cocaine Dealer and obvious CIA asset, managed to only be in prison for a matter of months. Stubby himself wasn’t even in prison all that long either. The whole prison thing was probably to soften him up, to be more amenable to following the slavemaster lead to bring up the cocaine trade. Prison does tend to do that to people, especially if you’re roughed around intentionally while in there.

Stubby didn’t like cocaine, he knew that it ruined lives and made people “hard”, but after his year in prison? He played ball.

Another pic of John Gale (right) Mike Hynson (left)

mike_hynson_left_john_gale_right.

After being released in 1974 approximately, Stubby headed to the Caribbean and then to northern California where he got into television for a while. But, because of John Gale, “That’s when I started really dealing cocaine, and it made my life miserable,” he says.

Meanwhile, Thumper had kept away from John Gale until this same time period, but while attending college in Fullerton, he got a call from Gale. He told him he had a lot of cocaine and needed help unloading it. “He was known as the king of cocaine at that point in time,” Thumper says. “I wanted money, so I started selling it to all the groovy people in northern Orange County. I was selling like, six, seven, eight ounces of blow a week through Johnny. And then I got busted in San Clemente.”

That’s just about perfect, because it was probably closer to the later 1970’s period after things started rolling with the Suarez/Escobar contingent, that Gale really came into prominence, particularly when the Sandinistas ousted Somoza, and the El Salvador armed put-down against their rebellion was going on too. I say that because of the records I have that we’ll be getting into later on here.

To refresh your memory (or give some readers their first glimpse), Roberto Suarez Gomez, dubbed the King of Cocaine, was a descendent of the Suárez brothers “rubber barons”, who had been responsible for the extermination of the Caripuña people on the Madeira River in Bolivia.

You can see why Vatican/British/American slavemaster tool Klaus Barbie took him under his wing – he was their kind of guy!

Like Pablo Escobar, he too also pretended to be “for” the people, misleading them all over the place mostly by throwing huge amounts of money around.

Roberto Suarez

roberto suarez gomez

In the mid-1970s he began to conduct business with Pablo Escobar, assuring Pablo’s rise as a “Drug Lord”. Suarez also began recruiting Bolivian coca producers – with Klaus Barbie’s seal of approval – into his company “La Corporación” (the Corporation).

Meanwhile, as part of CIA/Vatican Operation Condor, Suarez helped to finance the military coup that installed a dictatorship in Bolivia 1980.

….Luis García Meza would be president and Suarez’s cousin Luis Arce Gómez was Minister of the Interior, and so he received political protection for his enterprise. Arce Gómez ordered the killings of many Bolivians, including union leaders and intellectuals such as Marcelo Quiroga Santa Cruz.

– World Crunch article: When The King Of Cocaine Built The General Motors Of Drug Trafficking

Don’t forget – Roberto Calvi, now head of the Banco Ambrosiano, had close ties with both Klaus Barbie and Roberto Suarez – laundering all that money for other uses by the slavemasters. (See this post)

In 1975, Pablo Escobar started developing his cocaine operation. He even flew a plane himself several times, mainly between Colombia and Panama.

Oh, look, Panama.

.

Exactly where Stubby had been mucking around with the Aafje and huge loads of hashish/pot and got arrested in 1973.

Prior to his being chosen to be brought “in” on things, Pablo “made his bones” helping out slavemaster operations by working for contraband smuggler Alvaro Prieto. (prior to age 22)

In Ecuador, Peru, Pablo and friends bought the cocaine paste, which they refined in a laboratory in a two-story house in Medellín. On his first trip, Pablo bought a paltry £30 worth of paste in what was to become the first step towards the building of his empire. It wasn’t until he was recruited into the Roberto Suarez/Klaus Barbie faction the following year  – 1976 – that his “career” began to take off.

Young Pablo Escobar starting his drug-dealing days

young pablo escobar

The cocaine business would make Pablo Escobar and his fellow Antioquia crime bosses – the Ochoa brothers, Carlos Lehder, José Rodríguez Gacha and others – richer than their wildest fantasies, and among the richest men in the world. By the end of the decade they would together control more than half of the cocaine shipped to the United States, netting a return flow of dollars measured not in millions, but billions.

Between 1976 and 1980, bank deposits in Colombia’s four major cities more than doubled. So many illegal American dollars were flooding into the country that the country’s elite began looking for ways to score its share without breaking the law. President Alfonso López Michelsen’s administration permitted a practice that the central bank called ‘opening a side window’, which allowed unlimited quantities of dollars to be converted to Colombian pesos.

The government also encouraged the creation of speculative funds that offered exorbitantly high interest rates. These were ostensibly legitimate investments in highly speculative markets, but nearly everyone knew that their money was really being invested in shipments of cocaine. The government played along by turning a blind eye. Soon, anyone with money to invest in Bogotá could readily cash in on the drug bonanza.

The whole nation wanted to join in – one assumes that included the financially corrupt (and populated with scientologists) Echavarria family.

Pablo built small, remote-controlled submarines that could carry up to 2,000kg of cocaine from the northern coast of Colombia to waters off Puerto Rico, where divers would remove the shipment and transport it to Miami in speedboats. He would send fleets of planes north, each carrying 1,000kg. There was no way customs and law enforcement would intercept more than a tiny fraction. Eventually he was buying used Boeing 727s, stripping out the passenger seats, and loading as much as 10,000kg per flight.

Guardian magazine article, April 29, 2001

.

Together with Mr. Avila of Newport Beach, one of the ways BEL (brotherhood of eternal love) member John Gale smuggled the Suarez/Escobar cocaine in to California was through Tahiti – dubbed the Tahitian Connection. Avila was indicted in 1977 for his role in it, where cocaine was smuggled from Peru and Bolivia (Suarez and Klaus Barbie territory) to Tahiti in false-bottomed suitcases, and then placed on commercial flights to California.

Stubby lived under an assumed name, which helped him find work in television while he continued dealing drugs. He became a successful TV producer for NBC, working on both Real People and That’s Incredible. He even developed his own Real People character, Captain Sticky. (The actor who actually played Captain Sticky recently died in Thailand, where he moved to establish a sex-tour business.)

In between shoots in San Diego, Stubby flew to San Francisco and met an ambassador from “a foreign country” who would walk through airport security with diplomatic immunity and 25 to 50 kilos of coke in two suitcases. “We’d bring it to a stash house in Daly City, and El Salvadoran soldiers with their whores and girlfriends and submachine guns would guard it,” he says. “We had millions of dollars.”

– Ref: Lords of Acid, 2009

.

Since Captain Sticky and the Real People show started in 1979, I was correct about when the really big smuggling of cocaine by Gale and Stubby was going on – later 1970’s and into the 1980’s.

Bronco brought Stubby to the Cruz. Stubby introduced me to Fritz, an El Salvadorian, Who had some cocaine for sale. They had a stash pad in Daily City overlooking the San Francisco Bay and airport, where the Soldiers fighting in El Salvador could come for R&R.

The stash pad had a big screen TV, hot tub, Girls and the Stash. I did a few deals there and partied with Fritz. Stubby got a house in the Cruz. I was to meet Fritz and 4 of the His Boys at the Grosvenor Hotel by the S.F. Airport. He had a room looking over the Airport landing terminal.

A plane landed, taxied to the Cargo plane area. We saw Fritz’s Boy get off the plane with a G.I. Duffel Bag over his shoulder. He walked to the hotel. He had 80 kilos of coke in that bag with the names of the family’s on the kilos. I wanted 2 kilos. They opened one to show me and sample. I asked for something to chop it up with. Fritz says no need. He broke a little piece off, Smeared it between his index finger and thumb…… Then snorted it like he was scratching his nose, pure delight for the bones.

As you can see, they were mixed up with the guns-for-drugs and the Contras financing – but you don’t see that mentioned.

spock fascinating.

But, I think that’s because the people writing about this didn’t actually know that connection, nor did they know the Vatican was mixed up in and was really the driving force behind these vicious terrorist campaigns in Central America.

They will now.

 

Ok, now you see those references to El Salvador?

Well, as you might have gathered that happens to be another location for this CIA/Vatican/British slavemasters Operation Condor nastiness.

Much like what happened in Bolivia, in Colombia, and in Paraguay under Operation Condor – the same thing happened in El Salvador.

It also happened in Colombia, using El Salvador as the model, and Nicaragua.

For its part, the U.S. appears intent on “Salvadorizing” the conflict. Colombia, as was the case with El Salvador in the 1980’s, is today the hemisphere’s leading recipient of U.S. military aid. And it appears that Washington, in its attempt to prevent a guerrilla victory, is once again intent on supporting a repressive military closely allied to right-wing death squads. Such a policy will inevitably result in the continued suffering of the Colombian people, who are routinely subject to massacres, torture, disappearance, kidnapping, and forced displacement.

We already know that the financing method these insane slavemasters were using was…the cocaine trade, using and laundering BILLIONS of dollars through Vatican/CIA offshore banking set-ups, and I believe including slavemaster agent Ron Hubbard’s secret offshore accounts where hundreds of millions of dollars literally disappeared in the 1970s and 1980s.

Exactly around this same time period, 1980/81, Vatican-approved Banco Ambrosiano (headed by Roberto Calvi) provided funds for both the Somoza dictatorship in Nicaragua and its Sandinista opposition.

Roberto Calvi

While Pope John Paul II knew that the Vatican was funding that whole “conflict”

– you understand.

.

They got caught.

Banco Ambrosiano and Vatican funny money begins to be exposed –

The scandal centers on some $1.4 billion in unsecured loans made in Latin America by Banco Ambrosiano, Italy’s largest privately owned banking group, and endorsed by the Vatican bank.

[see 1978] It was Mr. Baffi’s successor, Carlo Ciampi, who finally suceeded in bringing the Ambrosiano scandal out into the open in what is widely perceived in Rome as a triumph for the Bank of Italy’s political independence.

… assets of $18.7 billion in 1981.

… During 1980 and 1981, investigating officials say, the late Mr. Calvi mounted an extensive lending program to the Peruvian, Nicaraguan and Nassau subsidiaries of the Banco Ambrosiano group, using funds borrowed in the Eurodollar market that eventually totaled some $1.2 billion to $1.4 billion.

Most of this money was then lent to a series of Panamanian companies with names such as Bellatrix Inc., Manic Inc. and Astrolfine Inc., most of which are thought to have no more than mail addresses. The loans were granted roughly evenly by Banco Ambrosiano in Milan and by its Luxembourg subsidiary, Banco Ambrosiano Holdings.

But Mr. Calvi lent these funds, investigators say, only after receving what bankers call ”letters of comfort” from the Vatican bank. These letters, though vaguely worded, implied that the Vatican had an interest in the companies and was aware of their borrowing plans. Although such letters do not constitute a legal guarantee that the signatory will repay the loans, they are often issued to reassure lenders that a borrowing company has reputable backing.

Note that this is the same year that the Church of Scientology suddenly begins to restructure all of its offshore holdings.

.

Under the banner of the IOR, the Vatican admits that it controls in a partnership with Ambrosiano eleven ghost companies based in Panama, and guarantees all of their debts which at that time totaled roughly $1 billion.

About this time, the intrigue surrounding Vatican Pope supported Liccio Gelli’s Propaganda Due or P-2 lodge breaks, and the press latches on to the whole affair, exposing the entirety of the membership rolls publicly.

Gelli had been an SS officer during WWII.

…In 1981 police raided the office of illegal masonic lodge Propaganda Due (P2), finding evidence that implicated Calvi. After a trial he was sentenced to four years in prison, but was released on appeal. By 1981 it emerged that Banco Ambrosiano could not account for almost $1.3bn of funds, leading to Calvi fleeing Italy, before he was found hanging from a London bridge soon after.

In 1982, the head of the IOR, the Vatican Bank, Paul Marcinkus – gets arrested.

PAUL MARCINKUS

 

The Italian government issued an arrest order for the archbishop and two bank subordinates as “accessories to fraudulent bankruptcy,” but the Vatican, an independent state, refused to comply and cited diplomatic immunity. The Italian high court agreed, allowing the archbishop to avoid standing trial.

“I may be a lousy banker,” he said during the height of the probe, “but at least I’m not in jail.”

And their fellow banker Roberto Calvi (who screwed up and got caught) shows up dead this same year.

Early on the morning of Friday, June 18, 1982, a body was found dangling from an orange rope underneath Blackfriars Bridge in London, England. Police recovered the corpse of a middle age man, about sixty, paunchy, in a gray suit. Pieces of rocks and brick had been stuffed into the pockets, along with $15,000 in various currencies. A passport identified the victim as Gian Roberto Calvini, but soon it was learned that the dead man was really Roberto Calvi, chairman and managing director of Banco Ambrosiano in Milan, Italy.

… The collapse of Calvi’s Banco Ambrosiano revealed that high officials within the Vatican and its bank had collaborated in building a network of offshore dummy corporations propped up under the Ambrosiano Group’s line of credit, into which hundreds of millions of dollars disappeared. Some figures indicate that the Vatican’s participation in this scandal exceeded $1.25 billion dollars

We’re going back to 1974.

.

year 1974

The Sandinista National Liberation Front
(Spanish: Frente Sandinista de Liberación Nacional, FSLN)

In December 1974, a guerrilla group affiliated with FSLN directed by Eduardo Contreras and Germán Pomares seized government hostages at a party in the house of the Minister of Agriculture in the Managua suburb Los Robles, among them several leading Nicaraguan officials and Somoza relatives.

.

The siege was carefully timed to take place after the departure of the US ambassador from the gathering. At 10:50 pm, a group of 15 young guerrillas and their commanders, Pomares and Contreras, entered the house. They killed the Minister, who tried to shoot them, during the takeover.

The guerrillas received US$2 million ransom, and had their official communiqué read over the radio and printed in the newspaper La Prensa.

The Somoza government responded with further censorship, intimidation, torture, and murder.

.

year 1975.

In 1975, Somoza imposed a state of siege, censoring the press, and threatening all opponents with internment and torture.Somoza’s National Guard also increased its violence against individuals and communities suspected of collaborating with the Sandinistas. Many of the FSLN guerrillas were killed.

Operation Condor, was a campaign of state-terror and security operations officially implemented in 1975 which were jointly conducted by the military governments of six Latin American countries (Chile, Argentina, Bolivia, Paraguay, Uruguay and Brazil).

.

year 1976.

The Sandinistas leader and founder Carlos Fonseca was killed in the mountains by Somoza’s people in 1976, presumably by a Operation Condor sniper.

Carlos Fonseca Amador

comandante-carlos-fonseca-amador

Shortly after, a third faction arose within the FSLN. The “Insurrectional Tendency”, also known as the “Third Way” or Terceristas, led by Daniel Ortega, his brother Humberto Ortega, and Mexican-born Victor Tirado Lopez, called for tactical, temporary alliances the right-wing opposition against the Somoza regime. They attacked Somoza’s Guard directly, and demonstrated the weakness of the regime which encouraged others to take up arms.

Humberto and Daniel Ortega

Humberto-y-Daniel ortega

victor tirado lopez in 1986 discussing contra killing of peasants.

Reminder – it was in 1976 that Roberto Suarez partnered with Pablo Escobar to begin the big cocaine trade actions, which when seen up against the fact that the Sandinistas are beginning to win against Somoza, takes on even more significance.

At this same time, Slavemaster-installed dictator Somoza’s associate Norwin Meneses-Cantrero was the Suarez/Escobar supply outlet in Managua, Nicaragua.

A DEA report of February 6, 1984 indicates that a central figure in the San Jose Mercury News series was being tracked by U.S. law enforcement officials as early as 1976, when a DEA agent “identified Norwin MENESES-Canterero as a cocaine source of supply in Managua, Nicaragua.” Meneses, an associate of dictator Anastasio Somoza who moved to California after the Nicaraguan revolution in 1979, was an FDN backer and large-scale cocaine trafficker.

This is quite literally, an obvious plan being put into motion. Given that Suarez was Klaus Barbie’s “man”, and Klaus had strong ties to the Vatican/British/America slavemasters who are ruling – it’s easy to see where this “white scourge” actually originated from. It’s also no accident that it was primarily directed at the American people, who they have never forgotten led the first ever successful rebellion against the slavemasters, humiliating their sense of all-powerfulness that they had grown too accustomed to deluding themselves about.

.

year 1977.

In October 1977, a group of prominent Nicaraguan professionals, business leaders, and clergymen allied with the Terceristas to form “El Grupo de los Doce”, (The Group of Twelve) in Costa Rica. The group’s main idea was to organize a provisional government from Costa Rica.

The new strategy included unarmed strikes and rioting by labor and student groups coordinated by the FSLN’s “United People’s Movement” (Movimiento Pueblo Unido – MPU).

year 1978.

On January 10, 1978, Pedro Joaquín Chamorro, the popular editor of the opposition newspaper La Prensa and leader of the “Democratic Union of Liberation” (Unión Democrática de Liberación – UDEL), was assassinated.

Although his assassins were not identified at the time, evidence implicated President Somoza’s son and other members of the National Guard. Spontaneous riots followed in several cities, while the business community organized a general strike demanding Somoza’s resignation.

The Terceristas joined the turmoil in early February with attacks in several Nicaraguan cities.

The National Guard responded by further increasing repression and using force to contain and intimidate all government opposition.

nicaragua national-guard22-1978

.national guard nicaragua.

The nationwide strike that paralyzed the country for ten days weakened the private enterprises and most of them decided to suspend their participation in less than two weeks.

In August, the Terceristas staged a spectacular hostage-taking. Twenty-three Tercerista commandos led by Edén Pastora (a U.S. plant) seized the entire Nicaraguan congress and took nearly 1,000 hostages, including Somoza’s nephew José Somoza Abrego and cousin Luis Pallais Debayle. Somoza gave in to their demands and paid a $500,000 ransom, released 59 political prisoners (including GPP chief Tomás Borge), broadcast a communiqué with FSLN’s call for general insurrection and gave the guerrillas safe passage to Panama.

You can see the beginning influence here to try and corrupt the Sandanista movement (and portray them as violent “criminals”) through actions like this by Eden Pastora. (Note: this guy engages in the whole cocaine for guns crap in concert with the Brotherhood of Eternal Love).

This guy was a real piece of work – he later – serprise, serprise – “turned” and fell in with the CIA to lead “southern front” Contras against the Sandanistas – then turns again later on and says he “didn’t know it was the CIA”.

.

Anyway –

A few days later six Nicaraguan cities rose in revolt. Armed youths took over the highland city of Matagalpa. Tercerista cadres attacked Guard posts in Managua, Masaya, León, Chinandega and Estelí. Large numbers of semi-armed civilians joined the revolt and put the Guard garrisons of the latter four cities under siege. The September Insurrection of 1978 was subdued at the cost of several thousand, mostly civilian, casualties. Members of all three factions fought in these uprisings, which began to blur the divisions and prepare the way for unified action.

.

year 1979.

When Somoza’s rule was challenged, the US first tried to institute what was called “Somocismo [Somoza-ism] without Somoza” – that is, the whole corrupt system intact, but with somebody else at the top.

Oh, there’s a good plan.

come on!.

That didn’t work, so President Carter tried to maintain Somoza’s National Guard as a base for US power.

1stLt Lewis B. Chesty Puller with members of the Guardia Nacional

The National Guard had always been remarkably brutal and sadistic. By June 1979, it was carrying out massive atrocities in the war against the Sandinistas, bombing residential neighbourhoods in Managua, killing tens of thousands of people. At that point, the US ambassador sent a cable to the White House saying it would be “ill-advised” to tell the Guard to call off the bombing, because that might interfere with the policy of keeping them in power and the Sandinistas out.

Somoza’s retaliations – bombings

.

The “Twelve” abandoned the coalition in protest and formed the “National Patriotic Front” (Frente Patriotico Nacional – FPN) together with the “United People’s Movement” (MPU). This strengthened the revolutionary organizations as tens of thousands of youths joined the FSLN and the fight against Somoza.

A direct consequence of the spread of the armed struggle in Nicaragua was the official reunification of the FSLN that took place on 7 March 1979. Nine men, three from each tendency, formed the National Directorate which would lead the reunited FSLN. They were: Daniel Ortega, Humberto Ortega and Víctor Tirado (Terceristas); Tomás Borge, Bayardo Arce (es), and Henry Ruiz (GPP faction); and Jaime Wheelock, Luis Carrión and Carlos Núñez.

On June 4, a general strike was called by the FSLN to last until Somoza fell and an uprising was launched in Managua.

On June 16, the formation of a provisional Nicaraguan government in exile, consisting of a five-member Junta of National Reconstruction, was announced and organized in Costa Rica.

The members of the new junta were Daniel Ortega (FSLN), Moisés Hassan (FPN), Sergio Ramírez (the “Twelve”), Alfonso Robelo (MDN) and Violeta Barrios de Chamorro (the wife of assassinated Pedro Joaquín Chamorro). By the end of that month, with the exception of the capital, most of Nicaragua was under FSLN control, including León and Matagalpa, the two largest cities in Nicaragua after Managua.

On July 9, the provisional government in exile released a government program, in which it pledged to organize an effective democratic regime, promote political pluralism and universal suffrage, and ban ideological discrimination, except for those promoting the “return of Somoza’s rule”.

On July 17, Somoza resigned, handed over power to Francisco Urcuyo, and fled to Miami. While initially seeking to remain in power to serve out Somoza’s presidential term, Urcuyo seceded his position to the junta and fled to Guatemala two days later.

On July 19, the FSLN army entered Managua, culminating the first goal of the Nicaraguan revolution. The war left approximately 30,000-50,000 dead and 150,000 Nicaraguans in exile. The five-member junta entered the Nicaraguan capital the next day and assumed power, reiterating its pledge to work for political pluralism, a mixed economic system, and a nonaligned foreign policy

A few days later, Somoza flew off to Miami (and then on to South America to be sheltered by President Stroessner/Klaus Barbie) with what was left of the Nicaraguan national treasury, and the Guard collapsed.

Victory at last…

An early indication of the central role that the DGI (Cuban Intelligence) would play in the Cuban-Nicaraguan relationship is a meeting in Havana on July 27, 1979, at which diplomatic ties between the two countries were re-established after more than 25 years. Julián López Díaz, a prominent DGI agent, was named Ambassador to Nicaragua. Cuban military and DGI advisors, initially brought in during the Sandinista insurgency, would swell to over 2,500 and operated at all levels of the new Nicaraguan government.

Catholic church about face – as usual

If you recall, first they pretended to support the Sandanistas, ah but now? The Catholic leadership began to oppose the Sandinistas government. The Archbishop was a vocal source of domestic opposition. The hierarchy was alleged to be motivated by fear of the emergence of the ‘popular church’ which challenged their centralized authority. The hierarchy also opposed social reforms implemented by the Sandinistas to aid the poor, allegedly because they saw it as a threat to their traditionally privileged position within society. In response to this perceived opposition, the Sandinistas shut down the church-run Radio Católica radio station on multiple occasions.

The Sandinistas’ relationship with the Roman Catholic Church deteriorated as the Contra War dragged on. The hierarchy refused to speak out against the horrible atrocities of the contras..

Of course, they didn’t – they approved of raping and killing all those rebellious peasants.

I ain’t saying nothing cuz you messed up our “position” in society

It’s all your fault.

angry pout

REVENGE

remember, it’s one of their favorite justifications written into their fairy tale bible.

The church also “failed to denounce” American military aid. Of course! That’s because they were also financing this brutal revenge.

State media accused the Catholic Church of being reactionary and supporting the Contras. According to former President Ortega, “The conflict with the church was strong, and it costs us, but I don’t think it was our fault. … There were so many people being wounded every day, so many people dying, and it was hard for us to understand the position of the church hierarchy in refusing to condemn the contras.”

Not hard at all, when you remember they’re all slimy skekses bent on ruling the world and “thou peasants” stay in your classes.

The Carter administration flew Guard commanders out of the country in planes with Red Cross markings (a war crime), and began to reconstitute the Guard on Nicaragua’s borders.

They also used Argentina as a proxy. (At that time, Argentina was under the rule of neo-Nazi generals, but they took a little time off from torturing and murdering their own population to help re-establish the Guard – soon to be renamed the contras, or “freedom fighters.”)

The Red Cross, by the way, is an organization with long-time ties to the Vatican. It was them that was primarily used to spirit out (and hide) Nazi war criminals such as Mengele, Eichmann, etc.

The Vatican still refuses to comment on its role in this, but now it is known that they helped thousands escape.

Gerald Steinacher, a research fellow at Harvard University, was given access to thousands of internal documents in the archives of the International Committee of the Red Cross (ICRC). The documents include Red Cross travel documents issued mistakenly to Nazis in the postwar chaos.

They throw light on how and why mass murderers such as Adolf Eichmann, Josef Mengele and Klaus Barbie and thousands of others evaded capture by the allies.

By comparing lists of wanted war criminals to travel documents, Steinacher says Britain and Canada alone inadvertently took in around 8,000 former Waffen-SS members in 1947, many on the basis of valid documents issued mistakenly.

The documents – which are discussed in Steinacher’s book Nazis on the Run: How Hitler’s henchmen fled justice – offer a significant insight into Vatican thinking, particularly, because its own archives beyond 1939 are still closed. The Vatican has consistently refused to comment.

Steinacher believes the Vatican’s help was based on a hoped-for revival of European Christianity and dread of the Soviet Union. But through the Vatican Refugee Commission, war criminals were knowingly provided with false identities.

The Red Cross, overwhelmed by millions of refugees, relied substantially on Vatican references and the often cursory Allied military checks in issuing travel papers, known as 10.100s.

It believed it was primarily helping innocent refugees although correspondence between Red Cross delegations in Genoa, Rome and Geneva shows it was aware Nazis were getting through.

“Although the ICRC has publicly apologised, its action went well beyond helping a few people,” said Steinacher.

Steinacher says the documents indicate that the Red Cross, mostly in Rome or Genoa, issued at least 120,000 of the 10.100s, and that 90% of ex-Nazis fled via Italy, mostly to Spain, and North and South America – notably Argentina.

Snobs to the end.

The Sandinistas inherited a country in ruins with a debt of 1.6 billion dollars (US), an estimated 30,000 to 50,000 war dead, 600,000 homeless, and a devastated economic infrastructure.

Upon assuming power, the FSLN’s official political platform included the following: nationalization of property owned by the Somozas and their supporters – that’s the part that really hurt from a slavemasters perspective; land reform; improved rural and urban working conditions; free unionization for all workers, both urban and rural; price fixing for commodities of basic necessity; improved public services, housing conditions, education; abolition of torture, political assassination, and the death penalty; protection of democratic liberties; equality for women; non-aligned foreign policy; formation of a “popular army” under the leadership of the FSLN and Humberto Ortega.

Wow! Sounds like just a terrible place.

warning heavy sarcasm

The FSLN’s literacy campaign, which saw teachers flood the countryside, was a wonderful thing, truly inspired. Within six months, half a million people had been taught rudimentary reading, bringing the national illiteracy rate down from over 50% to just under 12%. Over 100,000 Nicaraguans participated as literacy teachers.

Bet that really earned the slavemaster seal of disapproval –

slavemaster seal of disapproval

You know, one of the stated aims of the literacy campaign was to create a literate electorate which would be able to make informed choices at the promised elections.

What a concept, right?

Not like the slavemaster way –

In December 1979 special courts called “Tribunales Especiales” were established to speed up the processing of 7,000-8,000 National Guard prisoners. These courts operated through relaxed rules of evidence and due process and were often staffed by law students and inexperienced lawyers. However, the decisions of the “Tribunales Especiales” were subject to appeal in regular courts. Many of the National Guard prisoners were released immediately due to lack of evidence. Others were pardoned or released by decree.

Big difference between that and the slavemaster Kill! Kill! Kill! Revenge! (for nothing) crap, don’t you think?

Meanwhile, Norwin Meneses (who was already in bed with Suarez and Escobar) an assistant of Somoza’s moves to Northern California, where the cocaine trade will really start to be allowed to boom.

Now that Meneses is in California, his good buddy and side-switching fool, Eden Pastora (commander zero) is now working for the CIA.

Pastora – right

Monica Rodriguez and Eden Pastora

Mr. Hitz [Inspector General CIA] revealed that the CIA put an admitted drug operative — known by his CIA pseudonym “Ivan Gomez” — in a supervisory position over Pastora. Of course, Hitz tried to have it be believed that the CIA “didn’t know” this – his favorite BS line to say – until 1987 when Gomez failed a security review on drug-trafficking questions. (See the CIA reports at the beginning of this post)

Of course, that failure happened after Senator John Kerry was exposing the entire sordid mess in congressional hearings, but hey, we’ll just call it a fit of honesty of Hitz’s part.

As it turns out, Gomez’s two brothers started being large-scale cocaine importers about here in time, with one brother arranging shipments from Bolivia’s infamous drug kingpin Roberto Suarez. This was revealed by an informant to the FBI in 1985. And yet, somehow the FBI knows this but the CIA doesn’t…

Does that seem believable to you?

no shaking head.

Doesn’t to me either.

Speaking of Suarez –

Michael Levine was an agent for Drug Enforcement Agency (DEA).

Michael Levine

In 1980 he was working undercover operations to set up the biggest coke dealers in Bolivia – who produce the raw material for 90 percent of the cocaine entering the United States. This was Klaus Barbie and Roberto Suarez’s territory.

Nazi war criminal, Klaus Barbie, was recruited to work for the CIA after WW II. The CIA sent Barbie to Bolivia in 1950.Barbie devoted his efforts to developing Bolivia’s thriving cocaine trade.

The Bolivian government was cooperating with Michael Levine and wanted to help the DEA to defeat the Bolivian drug barons. However, this is the year that the Bolivian drug dealers, with CIA help, overthrew the Bolivian government.

The Bolivian government ministers that were assisting Levine were tortured to death at the hands of CIA-sponsored paramilitary terrorists under the command of Klaus Barbie.

Michael Levine’s 25 years as a DEA agent led him to the conclusion that the CIA is running the drug trade.

In 1980, with the support of Argentina’s hard-line anticommunist military regime (there’s that “communist” thing again, now you know who is really behind it – Vatican etc. slavemasters) Suarez bankrolled a coup in Bolivia that ousted the elected left-of-center government. The violent putsch became known as the Cocaine Coup because it made Bolivia the region’s first narco-state.

 

By protecting cocaine shipments headed north, Bolivia’s government helped transform Colombia’s Medellín cartel – that would be Pablo Escobar – from a struggling local operation into a giant “la corporacion” (as Suarez called it) for sending in vast quantities of cocaine to the U.S. market to ruin lives of the “unworthy” in the U.S. and finance terrorist campaigns against other “unworthies” in Central and South America. Unworthy from a slavemaster perspective, you understand.

And whaddya know? Suarez invested more than $30 million in various right-wing paramilitary operations, including the Contra forces in Central America, according to U.S. Senate testimony by an Argentine intelligence officer, Leonardo Sanchez-Reisse.

In 1987, Sanchez-Reisse said the Suarez drug money was laundered through front companies in Miami before going to Central America. There, other Argentine intelligence officers — veterans of the Bolivian coup — trained the Contras in the early 1980s, even before the CIA arrived to first assist with the training and later take over the Contra operation from the Argentines.

Remember OSS/CIA man Paul Helliwell here, he helped set up those very money-laundering companies in Miami, and Vatican banker Roberto Calvi and Paul Marcinkus had their hands in this pie, as well.

Of course, in the meantime, busy little bees (slavemaster intel agents) were busy sowing discord amongst the Sandanistas.

Conflicts began to ’emerge’ between the Sandinista and non-Sandinista members of the governing junta. Violeta Chamorro and Alfonso Robelo resigned from the governing junta in 1980, and rumours began that members of the Ortega junta would consolidate power amongst themselves. These allegations spread, and rumors intensified that it was Ortega’s goal to turn Nicaragua into a state modeled after Cuban Socialism.

Gee, I just can’t imagine who was spreading those rumors…

reagan and his stupid t shirt campaign against communism nicaragua

In 1979 and 1980, former Somoza supporters and ex-members of Somoza’s National Guard formed irregular military forces, while the original core of the FSLN began to splinter.

.

year 1981.

Armed opposition to the Sandinista Government eventually divided into two main groups.

  • The Fuerza Democrática Nicaragüense (FDN), a U.S. supported army formed in 1981 by the CIA, U.S. State Department, and former members of the widely condemned Somoza-era Nicaraguan National Guard
  • the Alianza Revolucionaria Democratica (ARDE) Democratic Revolutionary Alliance, a group that had existed since before the FSLN and was led by Sandinista founder and former FSLN supreme commander, Edén Pastora, a.k.a. “Commander Zero”
  • and Milpistas, former anti-Somoza rural militias.

These formed the largest pool of recruits for the Contras.

The main two were both controlled by the CIA, as we already learned that Pastora was now covertly working for the CIA.

Although independent and often at conflict with each other, these guerrilla bands—along with a few others—all became generally known as “Contras” (short for “contrarrevolucionarios”, en. “counter-revolutionaries”)

Chief of Staff of the Contras, Juan Rivas later admitted that he had been a cocaine trafficker in Colombia before the war, as revealed in the late 1980’s by Mr. Hitz (CIA Inspector General).

Well, sure, why not, that’s when Suarez and Escobar were just getting going, and since the coup in Bolivia in 1980, things were now “all set”.

Rivas was known as El Quiche.

Defending Rivas in 1989, CIA officials insisted that there was no evidence that Rivas engaged in trafficking while with the Contras, and  moved quickly to protect Rivas from exposure and possible extradition to Colombia. In February 1989, CIA headquarters asked that the DEA take no action “in view of the serious political damage to the U.S. Government that could occur should the information about Rivas become public.”

Rivas was eased out of the Contra leadership with an explanation of poor health. With U.S. government help, he was allowed to resettle in Miami. Colombia was not informed about his fugitive status.

And then there’s Jose Francisco Cardenal –

In 1980 he fled Nicaragua for Miami where he began to organize the 15th of September Legion to oppose the Somoza regime. On August 11, 1981, his Nicaraguan Democratic Union (UDN) merged with the 15th of September Legion to form the Nicaraguan Democratic Force (FDN) – the contras, in other words.

Anti-Sandinista guerrillas that were branded “counter-revolutionary” by leftists (contrarrevolucionarios in Spanish). This was shortened to Contras, a label the force chose to embrace.

So, a political triumvirate was formed, consisting of Cardenal and Mariano Mendoza from the UDN, and Aristides Sánchez from the Legion.

Jose Francisco Cardenal: Background. CIA records indicate that Cardenal, a former Vice President of the Nicaraguan Government Council of State, arrived in Miami, Florida, sometime in May 1980 after having left Nicaragua as an opponent of the Sandinista Government. According to an August 1982 cable to Headquarters , Cardenal was described as one of the early leaders of UDN/FARN “which splic [sic] from the ADREN group in Sept 80 [sic] and member of one of the Nicaraguan counterrevolutionary groups in March 81.”

– Hitz Report, Northern Front Contras: Jose Francisco Cardenal/Bergman Arguello/Eduard Jose Sacasa-Urouyo/Rolando Murillo/Juan Savala (or Zavala)/Renato Pena/Roger J. Ramiro – from FAS.org

Why’s he in here?

You’re about to find out.

Upon assuming office in 1981, U.S. President Ronald Reagan condemned the FSLN for joining with Cuba in supporting “Marxist” revolutionary movements in other Latin American countries such as El Salvador.

Which is another place where “contras” would be used.

Reagan had himself just a fine idea –

Talking it over with the boys –

Of course, I’m being somewhat facetious because this was not “his” idea.

no shaking head.

It was the Vatican/British….you know what I mean.

However, see how it consistently make it look like America did it, all by itself?

I’m getting really, really sick of that little “get even” by the Slavemasters.

But, it was the “reagan administration”

– and you know why I’m putting that in air quotes –

that authorized the CIA to begin financing, arming and training the Contras.

But, you can imagine how that went.

This is just horrible. How can people even stand looking themselves in the mirror (particularly Catholics) and support such monsters?

It’s unconscionable, and it’s unforgiveable.

.

No say 3 hail mary’s for them – ever.

Ok, remember how Meneses moved to Northern California in 1980…and how Robert Tierney was running drugs for John Gale (and the remnants of the Brotherhood of Eternal love) by meeting El Salvadoran (contras) soldiers who brought in the cocaine.

aha moment.

Now you’re getting it.

So, the same year that Reagan is starting all this, John Gale got arrested, but served no time.

“…The police did, in fact, arrest Gale a few times. An April 30, 1981, UPI story reported that Gale, “one of the wealthiest drug brokers in Southern California,” had been arrested the day before in a raid on two beachfront homes in Laguna Beach. The raid netted more than $7.5 million worth of cocaine, $100,000 in marijuana and hash, $150,000 in cash and $250,000 in gems, rare coins and gold.

He was being “phased out” for some reason, he probably didn’t want to play ball with the whole contras thing (that’s just a guess). Just a year later, he died in a 1982 car crash in South Orange County when his Mercedes missed a turn. The car hit a chain-link fence, which went through the car, instantly decapitating Gale. Unlike Thumper, Stubby kept in touch with him until the end.

Neil Purcell believes rival drug dealers were chasing Gale when he died – which could very well have been the Meneses/CIA crowd.

The idea that Stubby continued in things after Gale’s death, seems realistic, or else he wouldn’t have even known about “the El Salvador soldiers” that he mentioned that we talked about earlier. And the fact that all that was really only getting going in 1981 – as in right here in time, and didn’t go into the hundreds of millions of dollars range until at least a year or two later, also points to that conclusion.

.

year 1982.

Cardenal had been kicked out of the FDN (Nicaraguan Contras) when Adolfo Calero was put in. This is just the CIA changing people, really, but what’s interesting about the following statement by Dennis Ainsworth (that’s whose name is blacked out), is the part about the Mesquito Indians.

Dennis Ainsworth, a Berkeley-based conservative activist who had supported the contra cause for years, gave a lengthy description of his suspicions to FBI agents. The bureau’s debriefing says that Ainsworth agreed to be interviewed because “he has certain information in which he believes the Nicaraguan ‘Contra’ organization known as FDN (Frente Democrático Nacional) has become more involved in selling arms and cocaine for personal gain than in a military effort to overthrow the current Nicaraguan Sandinista Government.” Ainsworth informed the FBI of his extensive contacts with various contra leaders and backers, and explained the basis for his belief that members of the FDN were trafficking in drugs.

The Unification Church – through CAUSA, one of their many front groups – was mixed up in that nastiness being done to those poor people under the cover of “humanitarian aid” – See The Connection Between Synanon and Scientology

They were handing out red t-shirts with some kind of saying on it to the natives, just like scientology’s front groups do in their “humanitarian” efforts.

The FDN was involved in drug smuggling with the aid of Norwin Meneses who also buys arms for Enrique Bermudez, a leader of the FDN.” Bermudez was then the top Contra military commander.

Bermudez (center)

enrique-bermudez

Bermudez is also involved with Contras in El Salvador, by the way – he is considered to have founded the Contras.

Corroborating Account

According to a 1998 report by the Justice Department’s Inspector General Michael Bromwich, “When debriefed by the DEA in the early 1980s, Renato Pena said:

that the CIA was allowing the Contras to fly drugs into the United States, sell them, and keep the proceeds.

Pena stated that he was present on many occasions when Meneses telephoned Bermudez in Honduras. Meneses told Pena of Bermudez’s requests for such things as gun silencers (which Pena said Meneses obtained in Los Angeles), cross bows, and other military equipment for the Contras. Pena believed that Meneses would sometimes transport certain of these items himself to Central America, and other times would have contacts in Los Angeles and Miami send cargo to Honduras, where the authorities were cooperating with the Contras. Pena believed Meneses had contact with Bermudez from about 1981 or 1982 through the mid-1980s.

That is correct, per the CIA themselves in their report, Volume Two, published on Oct. 8, 1998. (see links earlier in this post)

According to Volume Two, the CIA knew the criminal nature of its Contra clients from the start of the war against Nicaragua’s leftist Sandinista government. The earliest Contra force, called the Nicaraguan Revolutionary Democratic Alliance (ADREN) or the 15th of September Legion, had chosen “to stoop to criminal activities in order to feed and clothe their cadre,” according to a June 1981 draft of a CIA field report.

According to a September 1981 cable to CIA headquarters, two ADREN members made the first delivery of drugs to Miami in July 1981. ADREN’s leaders included Enrique Bermúdez and other early Contras who would later direct the major Contra army, the CIA-organized FDN which was based in Honduras, along Nicaragua’s northern border.

Throughout the war, Bermúdez remained the top Contra military commander. The CIA later corroborated the allegations about ADREN’s cocaine trafficking, but insisted that Bermúdez had opposed the drug shipments to the United States that went ahead nonetheless.

The truth about Bermúdez’s supposed objections to drug trafficking, however, was less clear.

According to Hitz’s Volume One, Bermúdez enlisted Norwin Meneses – the Nicaraguan cocaine smuggler, the friend of Adolfo Calero, and a key figure in Webb’s series – to raise money and buy supplies for the Contras.

Groups they (Unification Church) supports-

  • American Conference on Religious Movements, a Rockville, Maryland based group that fights discrimination against new religions. The group is funded by the Church of Scientology, the Hare Krishna organization, as well as by Unificationists, who give it $3,000 a month.
  • Million Family March, 2000 rally in Washington, D.C. sponsored by the Unification Church and the The Nation of Islam.
  • Foundation for Religious Freedom (Also known as the New Cult Awareness Network.), an organization affiliated with the Church of Scientology which states its purpose as “Educating the public as to religious rights, freedoms and responsibilities.”

.

A November 1982 cable to CIA Headquarters reported that:

Per [the November 1982 Headquarters cable], we have contacted [INS] officer and asked him to ensure that [FBI] is kept advised of INS-acquired information on alleged Nicaraguan exile activities. [meaning in San Francisco]

[INS] officer stressed that he has offered the information to [FBI] several times, but has been rebuffed. He will try again, nevertheless.

Since [the other November 1982 cable], [INS] source offered additional information, which may be of interest to you: during the week of 1 November 1982, Eden Pastora flew from Tegucigalpa to San Jose, Costa Rica. Canadian Consul-General in Costa Rica was on the same plane and recognized Pastora. [INS] source has been told that Juan Savala is head of the UDN/FDN training camp in Costa Rica near Lake Nicaragua. . . . During a meeting held in San Francisco on 4 November 1982, a U.S. person known to be affiliated with the Cuban Independence Movement, CID, stated that Eden Pastora will split with the UDN/FDN because of its alleged [CIA] ties. On the other hand, Fernando Chamorro, known as “El Negro,” wishes to make contact with CIA.

We will have no further contact with [INS] on this matter unless advised otherwise by [Headquarters].

This is obviously the case of the left-hand not knowing what the right-hand is doing, since Pastora already works for the CIA.

year 1983

.

Due to the atrocities going on and public awareness rising as to what was really going on in Nicaragua, the U.S. Congress prohibited federal funding of the Contras through the Boland Amendment in 1983.

But, the Reagan administration continued to covertly back the Contras by raising money from foreign allies and covertly selling arms to Iran (and then paradoxically engaged in a vicious war with Iraq), and channelling the proceeds to the Contras.

This is what became known as the Iran–Contra affair.

The hatred by the Nicaraguan people of the three players (the Vatican/British/American slavemasters) clearly showed when Pope John Paul II visited Nicaragua in 1983. Hostility to the Catholic Church became so great that at one point, Sandanista soldiers shouted down Pope John Paul II as he tried to say Mass.

Senator John Kerry’s 1988 U.S. Senate Committee on Foreign Relations report on links between the Contras and drug imports to the US concluded that “senior U.S. policy makers were not immune to the idea that drug money was a perfect solution to the Contras’ funding problems.”

According to the National Security Archive, Oliver North had been in contact with Manuel Noriega, the US-backed president of Panama.

Here’s Bush (then Vice-President under Reagan) meeting with Noriega to arrange just that, in 1983.

bush-noriega 1983 recruited to help contras nicaragua

As we already discussed, iIn August 1996, San Jose Mercury News reporter Gary Webb published a series titled Dark Alliance linking the origins of crack cocaine in California to the CIA-Contra alliance.

Freedom of Information Act inquiries by the National Security Archive and other investigators unearthed a number of documents showing that White House officials, including Oliver North, knew about and supported using money raised via drug trafficking to fund the Contras.

Sen. John Kerry’s report in 1988 led to the same conclusions. However, the Justice Department denied the allegations.

It was the “we didn’t know” swan song – with Inspector General Hitz leading the choir.

we didn't know

.

A 1983 report documented allegations of human rights violations against the Miskito Indians, which were alleged to have taken place after opposition forces (the Contras) infiltrated a Miskito village in order to launch attacks against government soldiers, and as part of a subsequent forced relocation program. Allegations included arbitrary imprisonment without trial, “disappearances” of such prisoners, forced relocation, and destruction of property.

In late 1981, the CIA conspiracy “Operation Red Christmas” had been exposed to separate the Atlantic region from the rest of Nicaragua. Red Christmas aimed to seize territory on Nicaragua’s mainland and overthrow the Nicaraguan government.

The Nicaraguan government responded to the provocations by transferring some 8500 Miskitos 50 miles south to a settlement called Tasba Pri. The U.S. government accused Nicaragua of “genocide”.

The U.S. government generated much propaganda ado because they were so annoyed, they even produced a photo alleged to showed Miskito bodies being burned by Sandinista troops; however, the photo was actually of people killed by Somoza’s National Guard in 1978.

And if you recall, it was the Vatican/U.S. backed Contras, the FDN that had given cocaine to Mesquito indians to keep them debilitated and under control.

year 1984

.

Note unless I have corrected it – [information blacked out] is referring to Dennis Ainsworth, who back at the time of the Gary Webb articles wished to remain anonymous.

The below seminar referenced, was sponsored by a Unification Church front group.

In February, 1984, the San Francisco Chronicle contained an announcement that there would be a panel discussion at the Sir Francis Drake Hotel concerning Central America. He attended the seminar discussion at the Sir Francis and there met some of the Contra leaders. ADOLFO CALERO was one of those leaders there, but [INFORMATION BLACKED OUT] did not meet him art hat time.

 

…[INFORMATION BLACKED OUT] recalled that TOM DOWLING had called [INFORMATION BLACKED OUT] prior to the seminar at the Sir Francis Drake and had informed him that the seminar was going to take place.

Since they were close friends at that time, they decided to attend the seminar together. [INFORMATION BLACKED OUT] reported that he first met DOWLING in either 1976 or 1977 through a mutual friend, DAN O’NEIL. [INFORMATION BLACKED OUT] stated that he thought DOWLING currently resides at 1947 Grove Street on the top floor of that dwelling near the University of San Francisco. DOWLING’s mother owns that dwelling.

By way of background on DOWLING, [INFORMATION BLACKED OUT] stated that DOWLING attended a Catholic Seminary with the idea of becoming an ordained priest. However, for some reason, the Catholic Church would not ordain DOWLING. Later on DOWLING became associated with a splinter group of the Catholic Church and became an “Old Catholic Priest” as a result of that association. [INFORMATION BLACKED OUT] further explained that the splinter group had begun perhaps 200 years ago in Utrecht, Holland.

One DWAYNE HOUSER of La Habra, Califorinia, incorporated the Celtic Catholic Church and became a bishop of the Utrecht splinter group. It was through HOUSER’s organization that DOWLING became “ordained” in a splinter group.

[INFORMATION BLACKED OUT] stated that he considered the HOUSER organization to be a tax scam.

[INFORMATION BLACKED OUT] further stated that he is no longer a friend of DOWLING’s and that he believes that DOWLING is a con man. According to [INFORMATION BLACKED OUT] DOWLING has resided from time to time in the home of NEIL BARRINGTON on Mason Street at Knob Hill in San Francisco. (U)

While “Father” Dowling was passing himself off as a Catholic priest, he spoke at the Grace Lutheran Chruch in El Cerrito, CA. Its pastor, Ralph Moelling, was a member of the Moonies’ CAUSA. Dowling served as national advisory board on CAUSA, which was paying Dowling’s travel expenses. Dowling frequently met Pat Buchanan at the White House and Bretton Sciaroni, a confident of John Singlaub. Dowling kept close ties with Linda Guell, director of Western Goals, which was involved in North’s contra fundraising.

OLYMPUS DIGITAL CAMERA

The “Utrecht” splinter group mentioned, is also mentioned at the website where the image of Dowling is from.

Father Thomas Dowling is a priest in good standing of the North American Old Roman Catholic Church (utrechht Succession). He went to St Patrick’s Seminary and University, graduating with a Master of Divinity Degree in 1974.  During his 40 year ministry he has served the Nicaraguan community both in Central America and San Francisco. Presently Father Tom  is the Chancellor of the Archdiocese of California under Archbishop Joseph Vellone.

1974, eh? Since that doesn’t jive with the Special Agent’s account, sounds more like this guy is maybe still running a con about his background. That part about his “ministry” in Nicaragua is particularly disgusting, now that we know what was really going on there.

Drugs and guns.

 

Retired U.S. Maj. Gen. John Singlaub, who was President Ronald Reagan’s administrative chief liaison to the secret Contra supply effort, had taken over leadership of the World Anti-Communist League (a Reverend Moon organization based out of Korea originally) and when Congress stopped the funding for the Contras,  the WACL helped provide money and weapons to the Nicaraguan Contras particularly after Congress cut off CIA-channeled funding to the Contras in 1984.

Moon’s front group CAUSA was one of the first groups to give the Contras “humanitarian aid.” CAUSA was an acronym for “Confederation of the Associations for the Unification of the Societies of the Americas”, and is also Spanish for “cause.”

Reference – Inside the League: The Shocking Expose of How Terrorists, Nazis and Latin American Death Squads have Infiltrated the World Anti-Communist League by Jon Lee Anderson and Scott Anderson, Dodd, Mead and Company, 1986.

.

Guns are humanitarian aid?

That is truly cringe-worthy.

zuko_x_ariel__forehead_slap__by_fantasticalwonder-d3c9fwf

In his 1991 autobiography “Hazardous Duty” Singlaub confirms the CIA involvement early on.

“I learned from embassy officials in Central America that the new Nicaraguan Democratic Resistance movement – the ‘Contras’ – was already in contact with the Central Intelligence Agency, and that covert American support was being organized. My old OSS case officer, Bill Casey, was now director of Central Intelligence, so I knew the resistance was in good hands,” he wrote.

church lady.

Journalist Jon Lee Anderson was with Pastora’s forces a month before the La Penca bombing, and further verifies the CIA involvement.

“I found out, of course, eventually that he was getting money from the CIA. And in fact, on that attack that I joined in April 1984 in San Juan del Norte, I discovered that he had direct CIA help. Not only had the CIA organized air drops of logistics on certain Americans’ ranches – a network of American ranches were operating as proxies for the CIA in Costa Rica – but they had also helped shell the town from offshore, from a gunboat. And Pastora confirmed this with me. [He] begged me not to report it. I had this from several other commanders and lieutenants in the course of the battle – I really confirmed this. And this was inconvenient at the time for a lot of people, because it was only a week or so since the mining of the harbor scandal had been aired in public and supposedly put to bed. … As it turned out, I got in a fair bit of trouble over it within Time magazine as a result. My biggest scoop of my young career.”

– Tico Times, La Penca bombing – 30 years. (2014 article)

If you recall, what became called the contras was really two difference forces, one of which Pastora headed.On May 1, 1984, Pastora had been given a 30-day ultimatum by the CIA to join forces with the FDN, and on the thirtieth day, he called a press conference.

The weird thing about this next statement made years later by Pastora (even though since the 1980’s and 1990’s, documents now in the National Archives had been found proving his involvement with the CIA and the cocaine trade into California) is that he was already working for the CIA for the “counter-revolution”, so him trying to pretend like this was some decision he was going to make in 1984 is…rather disingenuous, to put it mildly.

So, take what he says with a large amount of salt.

“I called a press conference to denounce these issues to the world,” Pastora, now 77, remembers, “and to tell the world that I was not joining the counterrevolution, from my stance as a revolutionary, from my stance as a Sandinista. At that moment, I was a dissident; I was at odds with the National Directorate of the Sandinista National Liberation Front. … So, the reason for the [press] conference, specifically, was to denounce to the people of Nicaragua and to the world, the pressure that I would not give in to or concede to.”

– Eden Pastora to the Tico Times, La Penca bombing – 30 years. (2014 article)

Investigator John Mattes, who worked in the Miami public defender’s office and later provided support to a U.S. congressional subcommittee on terrorism, narcotics and international operations chaired by Senator John Kerry, explained that the Contra activities were really part of:

“a much larger complex operation … fronted by drug smugglers and con men.”

And, if you boil it all down to that, that it was a mercenary adventure by elements of the Contras to sell a war to the United States so that they could engage in massive drug smuggling – and that’s really what it turned out to be – [Pastora] was a liability to everyone.

…He was of course a liability to the Sandinistas, and he was a liability to the Southern Front because he in fact was going to get in the way of [Adolfo “Popo”] Chamorro and others who had their own ideas of what the Costa Rica [Contra operation] should look like and what the Southern Front should look like.”

…The Pastora hit was maybe the first of its type of assassination in which explosives were used under cover of journalists.

Pastora was a liability to everyone? Now that’s probably very true.

Next – let’s get into some of where all this drug money is going.

In 1978, a pass-through arrangement was worked out with Wells Fargo Bank in Miami, enabling wealthy Nicaraguans visiting the city to cash checks drawn on BAC while safeguarding the secrecy of their Cayman assets, sources say. BAC deposits reached $14 million in 1978 and eventually rose to nearly double that before the 1979 overthrow of dictator Anastasio Somoza, sources say.

Beginning in July 1984, contra leaders recently revealed, an account at BAC was used to conceal $33.5 million in donations from a foreign government, widely believed to be Saudi Arabia. Saudi officials have steadfastly denied that their country was the donor.

…This scrutiny has annoyed some contra leaders. “Our hope was that none of this would be made public until we wrote the history of our struggle,” contra leader Adolfo Calero said in an interview.

wiley oh wow.

Yea, I bet he did. So he could lie about that history and try and make it look less monstrous as to what they were doing.

You know – get that white mask into place.

monster with a white mask on.

The BAC account was in the name of Esther de Morales, a relative of Carlos Morales, a lawyer and close friend of Calero. From July 1984 until March 1985, Calero said, foreign contributions were channeled to the BAC account through banks in Switzerland and New York. This money, he said, was distributed to five other Panamanian, Cayman and Miami bank accounts that he instructed Morales to set up.Calero Controls Account

…the contras are known to have received another $1.2 million from a U.S. tax-exempt organization, the National Endowment for the Preservation of Liberty. This money apparently was channeled to the BAC account in the Caymans through Barclays Bank in Miami, which replaced Wells Fargo as BAC’s pass-through bank several years ago, banking sources said.

– Washington Post, Contra Banking Network Predates Fall of Somoza, April 21, 1987

Note: the National Endowment for the Preservation of Liberty is one of a tangled mess of front groups that is staffed directly and indirectly with high-level intelligence agents, retired military, the Unification Church, Pat Robertson and the 700 Club, and the Church of Scientology. I will be doing a separate post just to cover the fact that most of these front groups are actually patterned after something called Moral Re-Armament – MRA – (which Reverend Moon of the Unification Church was recruited under initially). The MRA was one of two groups the CIA chose in 1953 to use for “Political Action” as part of Project MKUltra. The other was…Scientology and L. Ron Hubbard.

As a reminder re: Singlaub –

In his 1991 autobiography “Hazardous Duty” Singlaub confirms the CIA involvement early on.

“I learned from embassy officials in Central America that the new Nicaraguan Democratic Resistance movement – the ‘Contras’ – was already in contact with the Central Intelligence Agency, and that covert American support was being organized. My old OSS case officer, Bill Casey, was now director of Central Intelligence, so I knew the resistance was in good hands,” he wrote.

07-John_Singlaub_view1

And here’s a portion of my as yet unpublished post that relates to the National Endowment for the Preservation of Liberty

The National Conservative Political Action Committee (NCPAC; pronounced “nick-pack”) was founded in 1975 by John Terry Dolan, Charles Black and Roger Stone, with help from Richard Viguerie and Thomas F. Ellis. The group got its start through direct mail solicitations. A kind of slogan for this venture was espoused by co-founder Terry Dolan: “The shriller you are, the better it is to raise money.”

The NCPAC was used to get around the contribution limits of the Federal election campaign, and to run propaganda assault campaigns on slavemaster-unapproved candidates.

Starting exactly when the Sandinistas seized power in Nicaragua in 1979 and continuing up to 1983, NCPAC’s Financial Director Carl “Spitz” Channel formed a coalition of religious right wing organizations to raise funds for contras called the National Endowment for Preservation of Liberty.

– – –

 

Indirectly, another $27 million went to the contras from a State Department special fund for nonlethal aid, after the suspected Saudi funding ended in April 1985. Of that amount, $9.7 in supplies was requisitioned in the United States through an office in New Orleans headed by Adolfo Calero’s brother, Mario.

…According to GAO documentation, a small amount of the $17 million apparently was illegally used to purchase weapons, some went to members of the Honduran military, and millions of dollars are unaccounted for. The signatures on 29 checks totaling $805,245.63 were illegible. A single concessionaire charged with purchasing food, Supermercado, received checks for a total of more than $700,000 during a 10-day period in January 1986. In several cases, investigators who tried to verify vouchers against which U.S. government payments were made in Central America were told that the goods had never been sold, sources said.

Beyond aid that contra officials acknowledge receiving, tens of millions of dollars intended for their support apparently never reached them. This includes $10 million that State Department officials solicited from the sultan of Brunei in August 1986. On State Department instructions, Calero said, he set up a bank account in the Bahamas to receive the funds, but they never arrived.

“I wish I knew where that money was so I could send somebody to get it,” he said.

Some sources suggest that the funds may have been diverted to Switzerland to pay middlemen owed money in connection with U.S.-Iran arms sales.

[My note: – That would be the Vatican Bank. ]

…Since 1977, BAC had maintained almost complete secrecy behind the shield of privacy provided by the Cayman Islands’ laws.

Paradoxically, sugar interests still doing business in Nicaragua reportedly retain a substantial interest in BAC, which handled the funds of anti-Sandinista businessmen and bankers, and, more recently, of the contras. Several banking sources said a large interest in BAC is held by the Pellas family, some of whom still have major holdings in the Nicaraguan sugar business. Alfredo Pellas Jr. is listed on Florida corporate records as a director of the BAC International Credit Corp. of Miami, a BAC affiliate.

The people that Calero dealt with for arms deals –

…In his weapons purchases, Calero said, he dealt with only four suppliers: Singlaub, retired major general Richard V. Secord, Miami arms dealer Ronald J. Martin and retired lieutenant colonel James L. McCoy.

Jimmy was also best buddies with Grace-Marie Haddy, Terry Milner’s assistant in everything he did – including running black operations on Paulette Cooper, running drugs and guns with the Brotherhood of Eternal Love and Jerry McDonald, up to and including sponsoring the telepathy experiments at Stanford Research Institute under the rubrick of the CIA.

How about them apples?

The picture is coming clearer, isn’t it.

I think I see something.

As for Ainsworth’s knowledge about the Contra-cocaine connection, he said he sponsored a June 1984 cocktail party at which Calero spoke to about 60 people. Meneses, a notorious drug kingpin in the Nicaraguan community, showed up uninvited and clearly had a personal relationship with Calero, who was then the political leader of the Contra’s chief fighting force, the CIA-backed Nicaraguan Democratic Force (or FDN).

About three weeks after the seminar at the Sir Francis Drake Hotel, BONILLA called [INFORMATION BLACKED OUT] and advised [INFORMATION BLACKED OUT] that some individuals associated with the FDN in the San Francisco area were to have a meeting at the residence of DON SINICCO. [INFORMATION BLACKED OUT] stated that SINICCO’s father-in-law was once Ambassador from Nicaragua and was one of the original signatories from that country to the original United Nations Charter.

Prior to that time, [INFORMATION BLACKED OUT] had suggested to BONILLA that [INFORMATION BLACKED OUT] could introduce some of his business friends to Contra leaders in order that the story on the Contra situation could be explained to influential people. BONILLA and SINICCO arranged for ADOLFO CALERO to be at the meeting. Initially, a cocktail party was held at St. Francis Yacht Club in San Francisco which was attended by about sixty people, including TOM DOWLING.

The expenses for that party were paid for by [INFORMATION BLACKED OUT], BONILLA, and SINICCO, although CALERO paid for his own travel expenses there. The cocktail party went very smoothly during which CALERO spoke for about a half-hour and then answered questions put to him by various attendees.

Right after the cocktail party, SINICCO arranged for a dinner at an Italian restaurant which was attended by the twenty most influential business people [INFORMATION BLACKED OUT] knew. This was also artended by CALERO, BONILLA and his wife, SINICCO and his wife, and [INFORMATION BLACKED OUT].

An individual by the name of NORWIN MENESES also attended. He was unknown to [INFORMATION BLACKED OUT]at that time. MENESES paid for the entire dinner, and [INFORMATION BLACKED OUT] did not attach any significance to that at the time. CALERO was very impressed by both the dinner and the people who attended. At the dinner [INFORMATION BLACKED OUT] announced that there would be a cocktail party two days later at the residence of SINICCO for CALERO. [INFORMATION BLACKED OUT] later found out that MENESES had a private meeting with CALERO the evening of that cocktail party. (U)

“At the end of the cocktail party, Meneses and Calero went off together,” Ainsworth told U.S. Attorney Joseph P. Russoniello, according to a “secret” Jan. 6, 1987 cable submitted by Russoniello to an FBI investigation code-named “Front Door,” a probe into corruption by the Reagan administration.

After Calero’s speech, Ainsworth said Meneses accompanied Calero and about 20 people to dinner and picked up the entire tab, according to a more detailed debriefing of Ainsworth by the FBI.

Concerned about this relationship, Ainsworth said he was told by Renato Pena, an FDN leader in the San Francisco area, that “the FDN is involved in drug smuggling with the aid of Norwin Meneses who also buys arms for Enrique Bermudez, a leader of the FDN.” Bermudez was then the top Contra military commander.

– Consortium News, Robert Parry, New Evidence of Contra-Cocaine Scandal

Bermúdez tried to say that he had opposed the drug shipments to the United States that somehow managed to have gone ahead nonetheless.

The truth about Bermúdez’s supposed “objections” to drug trafficking, however, is rather more revealing. According to Hitz’s Volume One, Bermúdez enlisted Norwin Meneses – the Nicaraguan cocaine smuggler, the friend of Adolfo Calero, and a key figure in Gary Webb’s Dark Alliance series – to raise money and buy supplies for the Contras.

As a reminder here –

Brotherhood of Eternal Love people are also mixed up with this. Robert Tierney “Stubby” etc. And also, from one of my Jerry McDonald expose posts – David Mantell, one of the main hashish smugglers of the BEL, was a scientologist.

You will also need to note again that Stubby particularly mentions meeting an “ambassador” who brought the drugs – just like Ainsworth is talking about with Sinicco, Meneses and Calero.

Stubby lived under an assumed name, which helped him find work in television while he continued dealing drugs. He became a successful TV producer for NBC, working on both Real People and That’s Incredible. He even developed his own Real People character, Captain Sticky. (The actor who actually played Captain Sticky recently died in Thailand, where he moved to establish a sex-tour business.)

In between shoots in San Diego, Stubby flew to San Francisco and met an ambassador from “a foreign country” who would walk through airport security with diplomatic immunity and 25 to 50 kilos of coke in two suitcases. “We’d bring it to a stash house in Daly City, and El Salvadoran soldiers with their whores and girlfriends and submachine guns would guard it,” he says. “We had millions of dollars.”

Bronco brought Stubby to the Cruz. Stubby introduced me to Fritz, an El Salvadorian, Who had some cocaine for sale. They had a stash pad in Daily City overlooking the San Francisco Bay and airport, where the Soldiers fighting in El Salvador could come for R&R.

The stash pad had a big screen TV, hot tub, Girls and the Stash. I did a few deals there and partied with Fritz. Stubby got a house in the Cruz. I was to meet Fritz and 4 of the His Boys at the Grosvenor Hotel by the S.F. Airport. He had a room looking over the Airport landing terminal.

A plane landed, taxied to the Cargo plane area. We saw Fritz’s Boy get off the plane with a G.I. Duffel Bag over his shoulder. He walked to the hotel. He had 80 kilos of coke in that bag with the names of the family’s on the kilos. I wanted 2 kilos. They opened one to show me and sample. I asked for something to chop it up with. Fritz says no need. He broke a little piece off, Smeared it between his index finger and thumb…… Then snorted it like he was scratching his nose, pure delight for the bones.

In September, 1984, ADOLFO CALERO returned to San Francisco and spoke to about 200 people at the Rotary Club which was arranged by Dennis Ainsworth.

year 1985.

Meanwhile, in Nicaragua, Daniel Ortega and Sergio Ramírez (the Sandanistas) were elected president and vice-president, and the FSLN won an overwhelming 61 out of 96 seats in the new National Assembly, having taken 67% of the vote on a turnout of 75%.

Despite international validation of the elections by multiple political and independent observers (virtually all from among U.S. allies) the United States refused to recognize the elections, with President Ronald Reagan denouncing the elections as a sham.

Daniel Ortega began his six-year presidential term on January 10, 1985. 

A new National Intelligence Estimate, a secret CIA-prepared analysis on narcotics trafficking, alleges that one of ARDE’s top commanders loyal to ARDE leader Eden Pastora used cocaine profits this year to buy a $250,000 arms shipment and a helicopter, according to a U.S. government official in Washington.

The following month CAUSA (one of Reverend Moon’s front groups that Singlaub was mixed up in) held a conference which one of the Church of Scientology front groups attended also.

In February, 1985, or March, 1985, CAUSA, a religious front group for the Moonies, sponsored a large conference at the Hyatt Regency Hotel in San Francisco which was attended by three or four hundred people. [INFORMATION BLACKED OUT] pointed out that the Moonies have been involved in many activities under the guise of religion but, in fact, they have all been political in nature. According to [INFORMATION BLACKED OUT], both CAUSA and an organization by the name of World Anti-Communist League have been supportive of CALERO. In addition, CALERO advised [INFORMATION BLACKED OUT] that retired GENERAL JOHN SINGLAUB had been a chief fundraiser for CALERO in the United States. (U)

[INFORMATION BLACKED OUT] attended the conference at the Hyatt Regency in San Francisco. The conference was booked as one where there would be a panel discussion on Nicaragua.

The reverend mentions is Reverend Patrick “Pat” Hickey. Here’s a 1986 LA Times article that refers to yet another political round-up-the-rebels and convert them gathering, that accuses him of walking a “thin line”.

The Rev. Patrick Hickey, a Unification minister who is regional coordinator for Causa, said there was no attempt at subterfuge because he said there is no intent to spread Unification theology.

– Pastor Walks ‘Thin Line’ on South African Symposium April 12, 1986

.

Oh yea, sure. No subterfuge here.

come on!

.

Patrick T. “Pat” Hickey refused induction into the United States military during the Vietnam War, dropped out of college, and travelled through Canada as a “hippie.”

Soon after this, in around 1969, he joined the Unification Church of the United States which at that time had only recently been founded as a CIA/VATICAN slavemaster front group – as a kind of replacement fill-in for the MRA (Moral Re-Armament).

Hickey worked in the Unification Church as a state leader and regional spokesperson. In 1978 he was “matched” with his wife, Shin Myung-hee of South Korea, by Reverend Sun Myung Moon. They were married in 1982 in a Blessing ceremony of the Unification Church, held in Madison Square Garden in New York City, along with over 2000 other couples.

Hickey moved to Nevada in the 1990s and worked as a reporter as well as founding a house painting company. In 1996 he was elected to the Nevada State Assembly and served for one term. In 2010 he ran again and was elected. He is a member of the Republican Party and has advocated conservative positions on taxation and immigration.

Despite all his other “church” adventures, he was raised a Roman Catholic, remained one covertly, and became one again overtly during his running-for-office years.

Here’s a pic of the good Reverend – a Roman Catholic through and through, no less. Gee, why are we not surprised?

Understand now, this slimy excuse for a human being, is a man who was meeting with drug lords and helping to finance and support the blood bath of the Contras against the people in Nicaragua who were simply trying to be free of their Roman Catholic oppressors, just as Thomas Jefferson envisioned here in America. Jefferson utterly hated and abhored the Roman Catholics, by the way, and that’s a fact.

After the United States Congress turned down continued funding of the Contras in April 1985, the Reagan administration ordered a total embargo on United States trade with Nicaragua the following month, accusing the Sandinista government of threatening United States security in the region.

Coming back to Gary Webb’s Dark Alliance series now for a moment, his original anonymous source for his series was Coral Baca, a confidante of Nicaraguan dealer Rafael Cornejo.

Coral Baca

coral baca

You will see how well this corroborates with Ainsworth’s account of the drug-dealing “religious meetings” that were being cloaked courtesy of scientology and the unification church.

During her interview with HuffPost, Baca recounted meeting Contra leader Adolfo Calero multiple times in the 1980s at Contra fundraisers in the San Francisco Bay Area. He would personally pick up duffel bags full of drug money, she said, which it was her job to count for Cornejo. There was no question, she said, that Calero knew precisely how the money had been earned. Meneses‘ nickname, after all, was El Rey De Las Drogas — The King of Drugs.

“If he was stupid and had a lobotomy,” he might not have known it was drug money, Baca said. “He knew exactly what it was. He didn’t care. He was there to fund the Contras, period.” (Baca made a similar charge confidentially to the Department of Justice for its 1997 review of Webb’s allegations, as well as further allegations the investigators rejected.)

On April 15, 1985, around the time Baca says she saw Calero accepting bags of cash, Oliver North, the White House National Security Counsel official in charge of the Contra operation, was notified in a memo that Calero’s deputies were involved in the drug business. Robert Owen, North’s top staffer in Central America, warned that Jose Robelo had “potential involvement with drug-running and the sale of goods provided by the [U.S. government]” and that Sebastian Gonzalez was “now involved in drug-running out of Panama.”

North’s own diary, originally uncovered by the National Security Archive, is a rich source of evidence as well. “Honduran DC-6 which is being used for runs out of New Orleans is probably being used for drug runs into the U.S.,” reads an entry for Aug. 9, 1985, reflecting a conversation North had with Owen about Mario Calero, Adolfo’s brother.

An entry from July 12, 1985 relates that “14 million to finance [an arms depot] came from drugs” and another references a trip to Bolivia to pick up “paste. (Paste is slang term for a crude cocaine derivative product comprised of coca leaves grown in the Andes as well as processing chemicals used during the cocaine manufacturing process.)

Allegations of Drug Trafficking – the exposes begin with the San Francisco Examiner.

On March 16, 1986, the San Francisco Examiner published a story alleging that a UDN/FARN official–Francisco Aviles–had three years previously been involved in writing a letter to the San Francisco U.S. Attorney requesting that $36,000 seized from California-based drug trafficker Julio Zavala be returned to Zavala because it was Contra money. An April 1986 cable to Headquarters stated that Chamorro had questioned Aviles about the allegation after learning of the story. When Aviles could not provide satisfactory answers, Chamorro reportedly expelled him from the UDN/FARN. No information has been found to indicate that Chamorro was aware of Aviles’ actions prior to 1986, or that Chamorro himself had ever been tied to California-based drug trafficker Julio Zavala.

..In March 1986, when the San Francisco Examiner published its story linking Aviles to Zavala and a California drug trafficking ring, CIA began an immediate inquiry into the matter.

An April 1986 Headquarters cable was sent to several Stations asking for all available information regarding the allegation that Aviles, a member of UDN/FARN under Fernando Chamorro, provided funds to Zavala. The cable stated that “we must act swiftly to ascertain the true facts. . . . We need to get the entire story immediately.”

In April 1986, a Station informed Headquarters that it had ascertained that Aviles was not personally associated with Chamorro, but served in the UDN/FARN as a human rights representative. Another Station reported in April that the FBI had found no evidence to link Zavala and the other arrested drug traffickers with Contra groups. A third Station also reported to Headquarters in April that its inquiry indicated that Chamorro had no links with, or knowledge of, any of those who had been arrested in connection with the California drug trafficking ring. According to an April cable to Headquarters, Chamorro stated that:

UDN/FARN has never accepted large denominations of monies from any organization which did not first state the source of the contributions; Francisco Aviles was not involved in Southern Front activities in 1983 – the timeframe [of the California arrests]; . . . and Aviles has been informed verbally that he has been expelled from UDN/FARN, a written order to follow shortly.

1990 Newspaper article –

“Guns-for-Drugs’ Scheme Denied Reports Link Nicaraguan Consul to Cocaine Trafficking Deal

Oklahoman Published: October 16, 1990

MIAMI, Fla. (AP) Nicaragua’s consul here a nephew of President Violeta Chamorro on Monday denied new reports linking him to cocaine trafficking as part of a “guns-for-drugs” scheme for the Contras in the mid-1980s.

Adolfo “Popo” Chamorro said he knew nothing of a federal probe growing out of testimony by a Colombian drug pilot who said he paid Chamorro millions of dollars for drug shipments.

“Never in my life have I had anything to do with this type of illicit activity,” Chamorro said. He said neither Chamorro’s government nor the United States would have allowed him to take his high-profile post as Nicaraguan consul in Miami if he were under suspicion.

News reports about the case only help the Sandinistas, and “give arms to attack the new democratic government of Nicaragua,” the newly appointed consul said.

Two sources who spoke on condition of anonymity have told The Associated Press that Chamorro along with Octaviano Cesar, brother of Chamorro’s top aide Alfredo Cesar are the subject of an investigation by the U.S. Customs Service and other agencies.

Chamorro, 41, abruptly adjourned the news conference when asked whether U.S. authorities warned him drug trafficker George Morales was under indictment when the Contras took cash and planes from him in 1984.

Prior to walking out, Chamorro said both the United States and directors of the Contra group he helped lead with Eden Pastora had authorized all transactions with Morales, and that he knew nothing about drug charges.

Accusations linking Chamorro with alleged “guns-for-drugs” deals are not new. Morales testified before a Senate committee in 1987, and said Chamorro and Octaviano Cesar arranged the trade of guns and drugs on a Costa Rican ranch owned by U.S.-born Contra supporter John Hull.

John_Hull[My Note:JOHN HULL, originally from Indiana, was the CIA’s man in Costa Rica during the 80s. His ranch there served as an arms and drugs depot, a key Contra base]

Morales said he was certain the CIA and the U.S. government authorized the deals as well, in part because his drug indictment was ignored by the U.S. attorney’s office for two years while he helped the Contras. He was not taken into custody until a second indictment in 1986 and is now serving a 16-year sentence.

Chamorro knew nothing did he…

.

liar.

It came out almost ten years later in 1996, that Chamorro did know exactly what was going on.

On October 31, 1996, the Washington Post ran a follow up story to the San Jose Mercury News series titled “CIA, Contras and Drugs: Questions on Links Linger.” The story drew on court testimony in 1990 of Fabio Ernesto Carrasco, a pilot for a major Columbian drug smuggler named George Morales.

As a witness in a drug trial, Carrasco testified that in 1984 and 1985, he piloted planes loaded with weapons for contras operating in Costa Rica. The weapons were offloaded, and then drugs stored in military bags were put on the planes which flew to the United States. “I participated in two [flights] which involved weapons and cocaine at the same time,” he told the court.

Carrasco also testified that Morales provided “several million dollars” to Octaviano Cesar and Adolfo “Popo” Chamorro, two rebel leaders working with the head of the contras’ southern front, Eden Pastora.

The Washington Post reported that Chamorro said he had called his CIA control officer to ask if the contras could accept money and arms from Morales, who was at the time under indictment for cocaine smuggling. “They said [Morales] was fine,” Chamorro told the Post.

Senator John Kerry – right

In April 1986, a Headquarters cable stated that Senator John Kerry of the Senate Foreign Relations Committee had “assigned several staff members to conduct an intensive investigation of allegations of [Contra] involvement in illegal activities.”

According to the cable, the scope of the SFRC investigation included, among other things:

. . . . An on going [sic] drug smuggling operation connecting Columbia [sic], Costa Rica, Nicaragua and the United States, in which Resistance members and their American supporters, . . . handled the transport of cocaine produced in Columbia [sic], shipped to Costa Rica, processed in the region, transported to airstrips controlled by American supporters of the Resistance and distributed in the U.S.

The cable did not allege misdeeds by Hull.

A June 1986 cable stated that reportedly in August or September 1984 “Costa Rican drug trafficker Norvin [sic] Meneses sought the cooperation of ‘El Negro’ [Fernando Chamorro] to move drugs” to the United States.

Meneses, eh?

You know, the guy bringing drugs into San Francisco and moving them to Los Angeles, where it was introduced as crack to black people.

Time to wrap things up in this segment.

For Nicaragua, the peace plan of August 1987 was a good deal, Avrigan wrote: they would move the scheduled national elections forward by a few months and allow international observation, as they had in 1984, “in exchange for having the contras demobilised and the war brought to an end….”

You can imagine how that went over.

More guns, more killing was the response.

So, although the Nicaraguan government did what it was required to do under the peace plan, no one else paid the slightest attention to it.

Arias, the White House and Congress never had the slightest intention of implementing any aspect of the plan.

The US virtually tripled CIA supply flights to the contras.

Within a couple of months the peace plan was totally dead.

In October 1988, an even worse natural disaster struck Nicaragua – Hurricane Joan. We didn’t send a penny for that, because if we had, it would probably have gotten to the people, not just into the pockets of some rich thug. We also pressured our allies to send very little aid.

This devastating hurricane, with its welcome prospects of mass starvation and long-term ecological damage, reinforced the slavemaster efforts. They wanted Nicaraguans to starve so then they could accuse the Sandinistas of economic mismanagement.

Because they weren’t under their control, Nicaraguans had to suffer and die.

The men that have always been behind such things, and have passed-the-torch for generations are literally steeped in RIVERS and OCEANS of Blood with hardly a spot on earth left untained by their monstrous actions.

oceans of blood.

Against such massive oppression and bullying, the Sandanistas could not defeat the Contras. Daniel Ortega called for free and open elections in Nicaragua for 1990.

Although he was heavily favored to win, in a shocking turn of events he was defeated in an election for the Presidency of Nicaragua by Violetta Chamorro in 1990. Ortega stepped down with the defeat, but left much of his power structure behind that would make it difficult for the new government.

This was another one of the infamous slavemaster rigged elections, like happened in Haiti.

As Tony Avirgan wrote in the Costa Rican journal Mesoamerica:

“the Sandinistas fell for a scam perpetrated by Costa Rican president Oscar Arias and the other Central American Presidents, which cost them the February [1990] elections.”

But, at the request of their masters, you understand. They are just the Igors, not Dracula.

Marty Feldman as IgorMarty Feldman as Igor.

As the election campaign opened, the US made it clear that the embargo that was strangling the country and the contra terror would continue if the Sandinistas won the election.

You have to be some kind of Nazi or unreconstructed Stalinist to regard an election conducted under such conditions as free and fair – and south of the border, few succumbed to such delusions.

They forced these poor people to their knees, just where the slavemasters like people to be.

On your knees!

on your knees dracula.

That’s better.

Aargh!

perish the thought - wry ick face.

Years of conflict had left tens of thousands of casualties and $12billon dollars of damages in a society of 3.5m people and an annual GNP of $2b.

After the war, a survey was taken of voters: 75.6% agreed that if the Sandinistas had won, the war would never have ended.

That is not a good statistic at all, in the face of what was done to these people to get them to have that “more amenable” frame of mind – the purpose of war, you know.

The Library of Congress Country Studies on Nicaragua states:

Despite limited resources and poor organization, the UNO coalition under Violeta Chamorro directed a campaign centered around the failing economy and promises of peace. Many Nicaraguans expected the country’s economic crisis to deepen and the Contra conflict to continue if the Sandinistas remained in power. Chamorro promised to end the unpopular military draft, bring about democratic reconciliation, and promote economic growth. In the February 25, 1990, elections, Violeta Barrios de Chamorro carried 55 percent of the popular vote against Daniel Ortega’s 41 percent.

.

Yes, but it was rigged, and these elections saw the Bush administration funnel $49.75 million of ‘non-lethal’ aid to the Contras, as well as $9m to the opposition UNO—equivalent to $2 billion worth of intervention by a foreign power .

This was proportionately five times the amount George Bush had spent on his own election campaign. When Violetta Chamorro visited the White House in November 1989, the US pledged to maintain the embargo against Nicaragua unless Violeta Chamorro won.

In August 1989, the month that campaigning began, the Contras redeployed 8,000 troops into Nicaragua, after a funding boost from Washington, continued their guerrilla war. No fewer than 50 FSLN candidates were assassinated. The Contras also distributed thousands of UNO leaflets.

The amazing part of it was that the Sandinistas still got 40% of the vote, while New York Times headlines proclaimed that Americans were “United in Joy” over this “Victory for US Fair Play.”

Oh “we” were overjoyed, were we?

Vincent-Price - it doesn't look like a soul.

No. “We” were not.

 

These efforts might have worked and might have taught useful lessons to others plagued with similar problems – which, of course, was exactly what US planners feared. The threat has been successfully aborted, perhaps forever.

  2. Thank you so much for the hard work on this article. It tied together and clarified so much for me. Fantastic job.

    Contra cocaine decimated what had been a thriving music industry in the 1980’s. It tore apart my friends and ruined the mothers of my daughter and my nieces. It broke America’s spirit as it spearheaded the corruption of our last cultural bulwarks against slavemaster manipulation. As a university student I jumped into the fight to publicize and act on what information we could get back then, but we watched helplessly as the Iran-Contra hearings went into damage control, denials and closed-door sessions.

    Almost no one has any idea how devastating this toxic cocktail of Vatican-British-American repression and corruption has been to our lives.

    My hope is that someday this article will be recognized for the vital information it imparts, as thoroughly covering one major overlooked factor in the breakdown of our liberties as Americans.

    • Thank you for such a thoughtful comment Scott.

      Your correct view of the Contra debacle, I think is part of what so many people, the people that see these things, got roped into scientology to do. They thought they were in a place where they could make a difference. Little did they know…they were providing themselves as fodder for the slavemaster cannons, much like Mao’s Hundred Flowers campaign.

      Not to worry, one person at a time, like you, is the real way that things change – they know this. (boy, do they know it)

      Take care and Happy Holidays,

      Virginia
