George H.W. Bush and the Enterprise….

The Reagan Administration

Essay by  Mark Gorton of Tower Research

50 Years of Deep State

Within an hour of Reagan being sworn in as President, the Iranians released the hostages. As Vice President, George H.W. Bush was able to assume unprecedented control over the national security infrastructure without Reagan understanding what was happening. Republican/CIA Counter Surprise point man William Casey was rewarded for his act of treason by being made Director of the CIA. With Bush as VP, Casey as DCI, and Reagan dozing on the job, the Cabal was well positioned to run the country behind the scenes.

As Vice President, Bush represented the United States on a committee of heads of international intelligence agencies. This working group had the capability to task a number of assassination teams from a variety of intelligence agencies. Without any formal or legal oversight, this committee had the power to kill with impunity nearly anyone in the world.

Just two months into the Reagan administration, John Hinckley Jr. attempted to kill Ronald Reagan. There is good reason to believe that this planned assassination was another attempted coup d’état. The Bush and Hinckley families were close. The day after the assassination attempt, John Hinckley’s brother, Scott, was schedule to have dinner with Vice President Bush’s son, Neil. In addition, earlier in his career, John Hinckley Sr., the gunman’s father, worked for World Vision, an organization with close ties to the intelligence community.

The Enterprise

Ensconced in the Vice President office, Bush set out to build a criminal organization without parallel in US history. Many elements of this criminal organization later became known under various names:Iran-Contra, the Savings and Loan Scandal, CIA/DEA drug trafficking, HUD fraud, etc. However, the press reports either failed to comprehend or refused to report the common organization behind these crimes. Iran-Contra conspirator General Richard Secord called it “The Enterprise”, and that term perhaps best describes the organization. The Enterprise was a massive 5000 person large hierarchical criminal organization with George H.W. Bush as its CEO.

The Enterprise was a multifaceted criminal conglomerate that ran a large number of criminal activities including: drug trafficking, arms trafficking, savings and loan fraud, securities fraud, oil and gas fraud, insurance fraud, and real estate fraud. Embedded within the national security infrastructure and protected from prosecution by corrupted enforcement agencies like the SEC, FBI, DEA, ATF, etc., The Enterprise embarked on a massive criminal romp.

Senior members of The Enterprise included William Casey, Richard Secord, Richard Armitage, Oliver North, John Poindexter, Edwin Wilson, Thomas Clines, Donald Gregg and Felix Rodriguez. During this time, the transition of the Cabal to an increasingly Bush family centered syndicate continued. Much like a mob family, the next generation of the Bush family was brought into the family crime business. Members of the younger generation of the Bush family specialized in particular types of fraud. George W. Bush’s specialty was insurance fraud; Neil Bush specialized in real estate fraud; Jeb Bush was involved in a wider variety of frauds (banking, securities, real estate, oil and gas, gold bullion, and aircraft brokerage frauds).

As with all George H.W. Bush operations, The Enterprise served many purposes. The most obvious motive was pure greed. Billions of dollars were plundered in a wide variety of frauds and crimes. But more importantly, Bush and the Cabal needed to spread and perpetuate a criminal milieu within government. An honest government was an enormous threat to Bush and the Cabal. They had (and have) a never ending need to continue to commit more crimes in order to create new generations of criminals to maintain the criminal environment which protected them.

Crime was the Bush family business. Just as Prescott Bush inducted George H.W. to the criminal life partially to protect himself from exposure of his WWII era treason, fraud and theft, George HW committed his sons to a life of crime, so that the next generation would do their duty to protect their father and their family’s criminal past.

The financial frauds conducted by The Enterprise were designed to implicate, enrich and entrap a huge swath of the political class in DC. Fraudulent securities or oil and gas deals were offered to friends to enrich them and enemies to entrap them. In some cases, enemies were suckered in with easy profits on small investments only to be bankrupted when larger fraudulent investments imploded. By the time that the Iran Contra scandal made the headlines, such a large number of congressmen and DC insiders were implicated that any attempt to expose the scale of the scandal would have resulted in a near wholesale implication of the political class. In many ways, this endemic corruption is what makes political reform in Washington so difficult, the level of corruption is so pervasive that the political class has no choice but to cover for each other’s crimes or risk mutually assured destruction.

George H.W. Bush was the greatest criminal mastermind in American history. His criminal operations work on many, many levels. In addition to pure looting, the building and strengthening of his criminal base within government, and the systematic corruption and control of political class in Washington, the Iran-Contra operation served another, little understood purpose.

Eventually, the large scale looting of the Savings and Loans, the securities fraud, the oil and gas frauds, the insurance frauds all began to come to light, and the end of The Enterprise was clearly in sight. At this point, an attempt was made to deliberately expose some drug and gun running aspects of the Enterprise and to blame them on Reagan in an attempt to force him to resign. The falsely blaming the president for crimes with which he was not associated has strong parallels to the Watergate Coup and makes Iran – Contra the fourth Coup attempt in George H.W. Bush’s career. However, Reagan loyalists Edwin Meese and George Shultz were able to fight off the coup, and Reagan’s presidency survived. One reason that understanding The Enterprise is important today is that the network of people involved in the Enterprise did not go away. These individuals continued their long, active criminal careers and some of the people responsible for the 9/11 operation can be found to have previous working relationships during the days of The Enterprise.

As the large variety of crimes associated with The Enterprise came to light, and the press reported on a variety of scandals, senior leadership of The Enterprise needed to insulate themselves from exposure. The tactic used to protect the upper management of The Enterprise was the systematic killing of a huge number of middle level players in The Enterprise. In all, over 400 people were killed in the cover up of the crimes of The Enterprise. The vast majority of those killed were mid-level operational members of The Enterprise, but a fair number of reporters were also killed to keep the true nature of the organization from being exposed.

In order to facilitate the cover up, Congress began an investigation by establishing The House Select Committee to Investigate Covert Arms Transactions with Iran. The most important figure on the committee was senior Republican member, Richard Cheney. As a result, George H.W. Bush

was totally exonerated by the final report.

The New World Order: The Quickening of the Cabal

The Quickening of the Cabal

Essay by Mark Gorton of Tower Research

50 Years of Deep State

The criminals who took over the government had an incredible fear of being exposed. If exposed, they would be hung for treason. Fear of exposure bound the network behind the Coup of ’63 into an incredibly powerful political force which has dominated the American federal political system for the last 50 years.

The assassination continues to be an important event that every American should take the time to understand because the powerful forces that seized control of our government 50 years ago have not let go. As I studied the Coup of ’63, I began to perceive this Cabal behind JFK’s assassination, and I as I have studied their actions, I have understood their desperate need to control the American political system. If the Cabal were ever to lose control of the American political system, they risk exposure for a litany of crimes which continue to this present day.

6 years ago, I started studying the JFK assassination out of curiosity. But as I came to understand the Coup of ’63, and I was able to perceive the Cabal behind the Coup as an incredible political force, I began to study a series of events. Many of these events were also “conspiracies” dismissed as crazy by the mainstream media, and I saw that these conspiracies were the work of this same network of people. And what I have been doing for the last several years has been tracking the work of this evolving cabal through time.

In order to escape justice for their heinous crimes, the Cabal needed to build a number of capabilities for themselves. The Cabal needed to be able to kill with impunity anyone who threatened to expose them. They needed to be able to control the press, and they need to control the presidency, federal law enforcement agencies, and the intelligence community. Operating under the secret cover of “national security” from within intelligence agencies (CIA, ONI, military intelligence, etc.), the Cabal has been able to systematically destroy threats to itself. With control of the FBI, justice department, DEA, ATF, etc., the Cabal has been able to insure that no serious investigation of its crimes would take place. And massive, highly successful programs to control the press, like the CIA’s Operation Mockingbird, have insured that the mainstream media would systematically ignore and dismiss all claims of high level government corruption.

With the control of law enforcement, intelligence agencies and the press, the Cabal built itself the perfect machine for committing crimes and getting away with them. And with these capabilities, the Cabal has run amok for the last 50 years.

The Assassination of RFK

The RFK assassination gives a good idea of the capability of this system. Bobby Kennedy knew that his brother had been killed by a conspiracy. He had a vague sense of the outlines of this conspiracy, but trapped within the Johnson administration, he lacked the power to determine the truth for sure. Bobby’s plan was to wait until he could attain the presidency, and then with the full power of the presidency, he would relentlessly hunt his brother’s killers and avenge JFK’s death.

The Cabal could not allow RFK to become president, and from the moment they seized power, they worked relentlessly to build the mechanism to let them kill Bobby Kennedy and cover up the truth behind his killing. The Cabal acquired a variety of mechanisms to kill their enemies. One such mechanism was to use Special Forces operatives from the US Military who had been trained to obey orders unquestioningly, and once told that someone was an enemy of the state, they would ignorantly and dutifully dispatch this person. Since WWII, the mafia and the CIA had developed a close and mutually supportive relationship, in many cases, mob hit men could be deployed on behalf of their intelligence and political masters. Within the CIA and other intelligence organizations were cold blooded hit men who knew well that they were part of a criminal network embedded within the government. In addition, many alliances existed between international intelligence agencies. Assassination capabilities were often traded between these agencies. In cases of a high profile killing where a patsy was needed, brainwashed killers from the CIA’s MKUltra program could be deployed. Since the early 1950’s, the CIA’s MKUltra program had been using drugs, hypnosis, and a combination of other techniques to produce robot assassins.

Not long after Bobby Kennedy declared his candidacy for president, an assassination team stalked and killed Kennedy at the Ambassador Hotel in Los Angeles. This assassination team was composed of the primary shooter, Thane Eugene Cesar (dressed as a security guard), MKUltra subject Sirhan Sirhan (who discharged his gun wildly), and a network of handlers and other helpers.

In case the lone nut cover of Sirhan Sirhan did not hold, the RFK killing was designed to be blamed on first the Palestinians, and then a combination of the Russians and Aristotle Onassis. Onassis hated Bobby Kennedy and wanted him out of the way so he could marry Jackie Kennedy. Onassis was brought into the plot by intelligence operatives, and he did fund some of the assassination plot. Although Onassis was involved in the plot to kill RFK, the hierarchy behind the assassination was headed by LBJ. Just as with the killing of JFK, the cover up of RFK’s assassination was a larger operation than the killing itself. During the early 1960’s, the CIA engaged in joint training exercises with local police departments across the country. Nominally, the training was intended to improve federal/local cooperation on intelligence matters. In reality, these exercises provided a mechanism for the CIA to control local police investigations across the country.

Manuel Pena, the LAPD officer with control of the RFK assassination, had previously worked doing special ops for the CIA. He had worked closely with David Morales, a CIA hit man who had a significant operational role in the JFK assassination. Beyond developing assassination and cover up capabilities, the five years between the Coup of ’63 and RFK’s killing had allowed the Cabal to consolidate their control of the press. CIA agents were inserted as reporters and editors at all of the major media outlets in the country. The meme that “conspiracy theorists” were kooks was developed within the CIA and deployed with great effectiveness. During the 1960’s, the overwhelming mass of news information reaching the eyes and ears of Americans came from 15 organizations: NBC, ABC, CBS, AP, UPI, Time-Life, McGraw Hill, Newsweek, U.S. News & World Report, NY Times, Washington Post, Metromedia, Westinghouse, Capital Cities, the North American Newspaper Alliance, and the Saturday Evening Post. The Cabal was successful in co-opting the top management at each of these organizations and enlisting them into active involvement in the cover-up of the Coup of ’63.

During the period 1964-68, internal research teams in several of these organizations reached the conclusion that the Kennedy Assassination had been a result of a conspiracy. In each and every case, management at the highest editorial and corporate level took actions to overrule, suppress, lock up, edit or otherwise alter these internal findings to back up the conclusions of the Warren Commission. Project Mockingbird was a CIA program to control the US press. The exact size of Project Mockingbird remains classified, but bits of information have slipped out over time that allow for budgetary estimates to be computed. In 1978, the CIA propaganda budget was estimated to be $265 million and involved 2,000 personnel making it larger than the combined budgets of Reuters, the Associated Press and United Press International. In 1977, Carl Bernstein reported that the CIA had over 400 reporters and editors at major US media outlets on its payroll. Decedents of this program continue up until the present day.

The Zodiac Killer part 2

     Two weeks after the attack on Bryan Hartnell and Cecelia Shepard, A man entered a cab going to Presidio Heights of San Francisco. It was October 11, 1969, the cab driver drove one block too far, the killer shot him in the back of the head with a 9mm.  Three teens across the street in a building heard the shots and saw the killer exit Paul Stine’s cab and reported it to the police about 10pm. Paul Stine was just 29 years old. The teens described the killer as a stocky, white male about 25, with a crew cut.

     An intensive manhunt was immediately launched, but somehow there was a mistake made as to the killer’s race and the police were searching for a black male. How this mistake was made was never reported and no one was ever apprehended for the crime. Later the police remembered driving by a large white male fitting the original description just blocks from the shooting, but because of his race, the police did not consider him a suspect. (1)

It seems as the killer exited the car he took a piece of Paul Stine’s blood stained shirt. Officers Donald Fouke and Eric Zelms minutes after the murder, observed a white man walking east on Jackson Street, he was never stopped and questioned. The officers did get a good look at him, however. When the correct description of the suspect was finally broadcast, the officers realized they might have encountered him. The police said there was no conversation that had occurred between them and the man, though the killer said he actually talked to the officers. 3 days later October 14th the S.F. Chronicle received another letter with the piece of Paul Stine’s shirt. The person who called himself the Zodiac took credit for the murder. (2) His next threat was the shoot the tires off school buses and pick off the children with a gun as they attempted to escape……

The last victims were definite victims of this killer, there were several more that were possible. In 1963:

-Possible Victims-

  1. June 4th, 1963, Robert Domingo 18, and fiancée Linda Edwards 17, were on a senior “ditch day” from Lompoc High School. They were at the beach So. of Santa Barbara in an isolated area. The killer came upon them while they were sunbathing. They were tied with precut rope, and shot with a gun using the same ammo as Lake Hermann victims. They were put in a shack, to which the killer tried (unsuccessfully) to set on fire. The tied-up hands, same ammo had earmarks of the Zodiac Killer. (3)
  2. October 30, 1966, Cheri Jo Bates, 18 years old, was attending Riverside Community College in Riverside, Ca. It was about 9 pm and she had left the library where she had been studying. She was beaten and stabbed multiple times with a short blade knife. It was found later that her car had been disabled. Near her body was a Timex watch stopped at 12:24, though it is thought she died quickly, and there was a print of shoe thought to be a military 8-10 in size.  The Zodiac took credit for this one, though it was never proven. (4)
  3. March 22, 1970, Kathleen Johns and her infant child had been on the way to visit a sick relative in Petaluma, CA. A man signaled to her wheel was wobbly so she pulled over to the side of the road. Another different man, stocky about 30 years old came and offered her a ride. He drove her around Tracy, CA. for about two hours saying he was going to kill her. She managed to escape, and went to the police department. When she was there, she saw a picture of the Zodiac killer on the wall (a composite) and identified him as the man who had tried to kill her and her baby in a photo line-up. He turned out to be Lawrence Kane. (5)
  4. September 6, 1970, Donna Lass was finishing up her shift at Sahara Tahoe. She was a nurse there. The log book signed her out about 1:50am. Though her car was parked in her apartment lot, she was never seen again.  A man called her in to work the next day, saying she had a sick relative. That was a hoax. So why the Zodiac? Paul Stine lived blocks from her. Also within a few days a card came from the Zodiac taking credit for her disappearance. Later a retired detective said he forged the card. It had no earmarks of the Zodiac’s letters. Hers is the weakest tie to Zodiac. (6)

Now it is time to look at the suspects. These are the best from the strongest to the weakest.

-Suspects-

1. Arthur Allen Leigh-He was the most investigated suspect, and the only one to served with search warrants. Don Cheney was a friend of his from 1962-1969 then Cheney moved to L.A. area. While living in L.A. Cheney called police because something on the news sparked a memory of things Leigh said him. The quote was of the Zodiac killer’s threat to shoot out the tires of a school bus and kill the children inside. Just months earlier, Cheney realized, Allen had talked of doing the same thing. (7) It was not the only thing he had said about being Zodiac, just the one that got him to finally call the police. As science improved Leigh’s prints and DNA ruled him out as a suspect.

2. Rick Marshall– Many in law enforcement consider him still a strong suspect. He lived in Riverside when Cheri Jo was murdered.    the  only San Francisco crime occurred blocks from his basement apartment in 1969. He worked for a radio station as an engineer,  KTIM in the early 1970s.The KTIM call letters resemble the symbols Zodiac included in his “Exorcist” letter from January 1974. Marshall was a projectionist at a San Francisco Silent Movie theater called “The Avenue”. This was when the Zodiac sent his July 1974 letter signing it the Red Phantom. It was thought he was referring a silent movie. He signed off with a veiled message that included strange oriental style symbols at the foot of the letter, they measured up to the KTIM call letters. (8)Marshall went to work for Tektronix in 1989. He also still repaired organs. There were no hard facts to tie him to the murders except he fit the physical description and the ties to the silent movies he worked with. Also, there was another silent movie tie in.  A Charlie Chan movie picture called, “Charlie Chan at Treasure Island”, it had a character in it called Dr. Zodiac, who was suspected in the death of a writer. It is suggested also he could have drawn the circle with the crosshairs symbol from his work as a projectionist.  Marshall owned a Royal typewriter. It was the same type that wrote the confession of the murder of Cheri Jo Bates on it. The letter was sent to the Riverside Police Dept. November 29, 1966, and described the murder.

 

3. Lawrence Kane- He was really linked to the disappearance of Donna Lass. He worked in the same building. Larry Kane had a bad car accident in 1962. It left him with some brain damage in which he could not contain his “urges”. He was arrested for being a ‘peeping tom’ and for ‘self-gratification’ episodes. There are other issues. The sister of Darlene Ferrin, Pat Huckaby said that Kane had been following her sister, until that night. 5 days after the attack, he traded in his car for a 1969 Ambassador. The woman Kathleen Johns identified Kane in a photo lineup as the man who abducted her. He also lived a quarter mile away in San Francisco from where Paul Stine was murdered. Then he moved to So. Tahoe and went to work with Donna Lass, so he was there in 1970.Here is another weird thing about Kane. He went to live later in 1971 in Las Vegas. The three years the Zodiac letters stopped, he was in Vegas.  There was a couple there assaulted, Dana Lull and Roy Tophigh. Dana died and Roy survived, sound familiar? It did not get tapped into by law enforcement because it was later and in Nevada. It was a paper trail error. At that time you could move and change your life. He also had a little coding experience in the military in WWII….So circumstantially he looks good….

 

4. Michael O’Hare– One of the weakest. He has no real ties, except he is mathematically capable and he could code.

 

5. Ted Kaczynski-You have heard of him as the Unibomber. He is weak but many believe he was influenced by the story why?

Kaczynski lived in the San Francisco Bay Area in the late 1960s.

Kaczynski exhibited the ability to construct bombs.

Kaczynski communicated with the news media after committing murderous acts.

6. Bruce Davis– Another weak candidate, he was a Manson Family follower, and lived in the Bay area in the 1960’s. That is basically his only connection anyone has been able to prove. Actually, all the Manson family has been cleared of the Zodiac killings.

So, there you have it– the victims and the suspects it is one of the most investigated cold cases by the public. One that still has a huge following. In fact, many years there are conventions where the Zodiac buffs meeting and go over the evidence and socialize.  There are Reddit forums, many websites and even today it fascinates people much like Jack the Ripper.  Like I said for me is was the first and the most mysterious. Then it stopped. It has never been solved, even with DNA and finger printing….

The Cover Up After the Coup of ’63

The Cover Up

An Essay by Mark Gorton of Tower Research

50 Years of Deep State

Elaborate plans for the cover up of JFK’s assassination  went into action after his killing. JFK’s body was secretly rushed to Washington, DC aboard Air Force 2 while an empty casket sat in the hold of Air Force 1 and LBJ countermanded secret service advice and stalled taking off by demanding to be sworn in on the tarmac in Dallas. JFK’s body was then worked on in pre-autopsy surgery to reconstruct his skull and hide the nature of his wounds. The autopsy itself was conducted at Bethesda Naval hospital outside of Washington, DC under control of the top military brass. The clearest evidence of the military involvement in the Coup can be seen in handling of the autopsy.

The lead agency in the cover up was the FBI. The FBI was pushing the “Oswald did it”, “case closed” party line within 2 hours of JFK’s death. The entire FBI investigation was aimed at convicting Oswald and ignoring or destroying any evidence that pointed in another direction. Witness intimidation was frequently employed for anyone who had testimony that contradicted what the FBI wanted to hear.

When despite the most earnest pronouncements of J. Edgar Hoover, the public still was skeptical of the official version of who killed JFK; LBJ put together the Warren Commission. The Warren Commission was made up of some of the most eminent men in the country including Chief Justice of the supreme Court, Earl Warren. The Warren Commission was designed to approve the already firm FBI conclusions, and with a bit of extra process, it did exactly that. JFK’s bitter enemy and Coup leader Allen Dulles was the most active member of the Warren Commission. Key other commission members active in the cover-up were Council on Foreign Relations Chairman John McCloy, Gerald Ford and Earl Warren himself. Commission member Senator Richard Russell was a man of great integrity, and despite his being LBJ’s mentor in the Senate, he insisted on issuing a dissenting report. However, Senator Russell’s report was suppressed and only surfaced decades later in his private papers.

The Warren Commission had no investigative resources of its own, and it relied completely upon FBI investigators. The Warren Commission did interview witnesses, but it cherry picked the witnesses to obtain testimony that favored its preordained conclusions. Warren Commission staff attorneys steered witnesses away from relevant insights and also falsified testimony in order to cover up inconvenient facts that happened to poke through.

The threat of nuclear war was embedded in the fabric of the plot which was used to cow business, media and government leaders, who under other circumstances would not have gone along with a cover up of the assassination, into tacitly working with the Coup plotters.

The media complicity in the Coup of ’63 can be traced in part to the Council on Foreign Relations (CFR). Elite members of the CFR such as Allen Dulles, Nelson Rockefeller, George Herbert Walker Bush and McGeorge Bundy were sponsors of the JFK assassination. CFR members, Allen Dulles, John McCloy and Gerald Ford played dominant roles in the Warren Commission cover up of the coup d’état.

A remarkable fraction of the publishers, editors and senior reporters of the most important media outlets in the country were also members of the Council of Foreign Relations including: Henry Luce (Publisher Time/Life), Clare Boothe Luce, Arthur Ochs Sulzberger (Publisher NY Times), William Paley (Owner CBS), Walter Cronkite (CBS), Dan Rather (CBS), Bob Schieffer (CBS), Peter Jennings (ABC), James Reston (NY Times), Anthony Lewis (NY Times), Harrison Salisbury (NY Times), Jacke Valenti, Daniel Schorr, and in later days Rupert Murdoch, Hael Eisner, Bill Clinton, George Stephanopolous, Brian Williams. The list goes on and on.

Any questioning of the Warren Commission involved impugning the honor of their CFR colleagues who ran the Warren Commission, and any serious investigation of the JFK assassination would have risked accusing their fraternity brothers of treason. The secrets of JFK’s assassination were so close to home that ignorance and denial were safer than the truth.

Now some reporters weren’t part of this club, and doggedly tried to find the truth. Reporters who could not be controlled were murdered by the criminals running the government.Over the years, certainly 50 and more likely more than 100 people have been killed to preserve the secrets of the Coup of ’63. Many witnesses, reporters, people who knew too much, plot members at risk of being exposed, overzealous law enforcement officials have all been killed. Some of these deaths were clearly violent. Many were made to look like something else.

Anyone who was a threat to the exposure of the cabal that took over the government had to be neutralized. In order to do this, the Cabal behind the Coup of ’63 built a mechanism of domestic death squads, and also the mechanism to cover up these crimes.

The Zodiac Killer part 1

The Zodiac Killer, Part 1

     I lived in Northern California and Southern Oregon, during my teen years.  From Grants Pass to Sacramento. During the 1970’s there was much activity in the area from the shucking of traditional values to drugs, sex and free love in Haight-Ashbury in San Francisco. There were protests around women’s rights, black rights and gay rights.  There was an entire movement around ending the Viet Nam war. The area grew great pot at $10 an ounce, and the picturesque forested area encouraged living off the land, so we had hippie communes. Finally, we also had the Zodiac Killer.

The idea of a serial killer was relatively new at the time.  The West Coast’s crops of serial killers were prolific from the 1960’s-1980’s. We grew them like the evergreen trees that hugged the beautiful Cascade mountains.  The Zodiac Killer came at a time I was coming into my teen years and became aware the safety of my childhood gave way to an exciting, tumultuous and even dangerous era. He (again pretty sure it is a male) like to target lovers, worked in Central and Northern California and loved publicity.

How many people were actually killed by him (we are pretty sure it is a him), are unknown but this blog is what we do know about the killer.  He operated in No. California from the late 1960’s through the early 1970’s.  He was never caught or charged, so to this day who the killer is remains a cold case.

The Zodiac’s first known victims were a teenage couple Betty Lou Jensen, 16, and David Arthur Faraday, 17. They were on their first date, they had parked on Lake Herman Road in the city limits of Benicia, Ca. They had planned on going to a concert at Hogan High School. It was December 20, 1968, just a few days before Christmas. They lied to their parents and hid away to be alone.  Between 10-11 p.m. witnesses saw them snuggled up together.  By 11:15 p.m. Betty was found several feet outside the car with 5 bullet holes in her back. David was on the other side of the car shot once in the head, but still alive. He died on the way to the hospital. (1)

Betty Lou Jensen

Friends said David had been looking forward to the date all day, and Betty Lou tried on several outfits. They never made it to the concert but went to a popular place to park, hidden.  There were no witnesses to the crime, but there were witnesses to a light-colored car, thought to be a Chevrolet Impala pull up behind the Rambler. (2)  Zodiac shot into the car to force Betty and David out. The bullets were Winchester Western Super X copper-coated from a .22 semi-automatic pistol. (3) There was speculation that David was aware of a major drug deal going down and had been talking about it. Others believed the Zodiac did not have anything to do with the couple as he did not take credit for months after the killing.

Between 1966 and 1974 the Zodiac killer communicated 20 times with police officials, sometimes directly and sometimes through a newspaper. In the case of Betty and David on July 31, 1969 a letter was sent to the Vallejo Times-Herald. The killer said at the bottom of the note, there were 2 more parts sent to the San Francisco Examiner, and the San Francisco Chronicle. He took credit for killing the couple at Hermann Lake at Christmas and revealed details unknown to the public.  He wanted the letters with a cipher he created, published in the papers, or more would die.

Darlene

It was the 4th of July 1969, Darlene Ferrin, 22 and Mike Mageau, 19, were in the parking lot of Blue Rock Springs Park outside of East Vallejo. Darlene was married, and worked at Terri’s Restaurant, Mageau was a laborer. The park was 4 miles from the murder site of Betty Lou and David. Then a car identified as either a light brown Mustang or Chevrolet Corvair, pulled up next to the couple. It backed away and came back 10 minutes later pulling in behind them. The couple thought it was a policeman and got their I.D.s ready. The man began firing into the car. He fired 5 shots and walked back to his car. Mageau cried out in pain, so the killer walked back and put 2 more bullets in each body. Mageau looked up and saw him, no words were ever exchanged between them. Mageau survived the vicious attack and described the killer as 5’8” to 5’9”, white, stocky, early 20’s to late 30’s, round face and brown hair. Darlene died at the scene.  (4) Within an hour, a man called and took credit for both the shooting and the killing of Betty Lou and David said he sent the letter to the papers with the Cipher.

Zodiac1

The Cipher was a 408-symbol message that the Zodiac said would reveal his identity along with a message for the police department. When he sent the 3 letters to the newspapers, on August 1, 1969, the killer demanded they be printed on each paper’s front page or he would “cruse (sic) around all weekend killing lone people in the night then move on to kill again, until I end up with a dozen people over the weekend.” (5)  One third of the cipher was on each letter for the papers; Vallejo, SF Examiner and SF Chronicle. The police wanted to verify what information the killer had, so they put a letter in the paper asking for information that the public would not know. Another letter was received on August 7th, it included data only the killer would know, and for the first time identified the killer as the Zodiac. Finally, August 8, 1969, Donald and Betty of Salinas, CA figured out the 408-character message of the cipher:

“I LIKE KILLING PEOPLE BECAUSE IT IS SO MUCH FUN IT IS MORE FUN THAN KILLING WILD GAME IN THE FORREST BECAUSE MAN IS THE MOST DANGEROUE ANAMAL OF ALL TO KILL SOMETHING GIVES ME THE MOST THRILLING EXPERENCE IT IS EVEN BETTER THAN GETTING YOUR ROCKS OFF WITH A GIRL THE BEST PART OF IT IS THAE WHEN I DIE I WILL BE REBORN IN PARADICE AND THEI HAVE KILLED WILL BECOME MY SLAVES I WILL NOT GIVE YOU MY NAME BECAUSE YOU WILL TRY TO SLOI DOWN OR ATOP MY COLLECTIOG OF SLAVES FOR MY AFTERLIFE EBEORIETEMETHHPITI”

— The solution to Zodiac’s 408-symbol cipher. The meaning, if any, of the final eighteen letters has not been determined. (6)

Bryan Hartnell, 20, and Cecelia Shepard, 22, were having a picnic on Lake Berryess on September 27, 1969. They were on a small island connected by a sand spit to Twin Oak Ridge.  It was about 6:15 p.m. when a man came over to them wearing an executioner’s hood, clip on sunglasses over the eye holes and a bib-like thing on his chest. He was holding a gun. He said he needed money and a car to go to Mexico as he had escaped from prison. Bryan offered his wallet and car keys. He tied the couple with clothesline after talking to them and began stabbing them, first Hartnell and then Cecilia.  The killer then just walked away, he hiked up to the Hartnell’s car and made the circle cipher with a line through it with a black felt marker.  He also wrote the Vallejo 12-20-68/7-4-69/9-27-69, but carved it in the car door with a knife.  After he had left the couple began screaming for help. A fisherman heard their pleas and contacted Park rangers. Because of their remote location, it took over an hour afterward for help to arrive.  Within 48 hours Cecelia succumbed to her injuries.  Bryan Hartnell recovered and is an attorney in the Los Angeles area today.

The Coup of ’63 (Assassination of JFK)

The Coup of ’63

The Essay by Mark Gorton-

50 Years of the Deep State

Among serious researchers of JFK’s assassination, a remarkable unanimity of opinion has been achieved. Thanks to the tens of thousands of man years of effort that have gone into studying the JFK assassination, the depth and breadth of the plot can be known. The plot was a giant domestic conspiracy that involved elements of the entire US power structure.

The assassination of JFK was part of a full scale Coup d’état, the violent take of over of our government by a group of criminals. I have not the slightest doubt in my mind that JFK’s assassination was the work of a network of criminals embedded within the political system and power structure of the United States. Key among the players in the Coup of ’63 were LBJ; Allen Dulles and the CIA; J Edgar Hoover and the FBI; right wing Texas oil executives including Clint Murchison Sr., H.L. Hunt and D.H. Byrd; the East Coast business establishment centered around Rockefeller interests and the Council on Foreign Relations; Curtis Le May (chairman of the joint chief of staff), other right wing leaders of the military and elements of military intelligence; and the Bush family (both Prescott and George H.W. Bush). In 1961, President Eisenhower in his farewell address warned against “the acquisition of unwarranted influence, whether sought of unsought, by the military industrial complex”. Eisenhower continued, “The potential for the disastrous rise of misplaced power exists and will persist.” Perhaps, Eisenhower may have more accurately have described this threat as the military – intelligence complex as the CIA had been operating free from proper oversight since its founding in 1947. Acting under the cover of protecting the world from communism, powerful interests found American imperialism to be enormously profitable, and the secrecy within the CIA provided the perfect environment for criminal elements to prosper.

JFK was aware of these forces, and he chose to fight against them. JFK and his brother RFK took on a host of entrenched corrupt interests: the CIA, big business, the mafia, and the corrupt Texas interests surrounding LBJ. A huge swath of the American power structure was at risk of being displaced and even ending up in jail by the crusades of the Kennedy brothers. LBJ was incredibly corrupt. He even had his own personal hit man, Mac Wallace, who had been killing people for a decade to keep LBJ’s crimes from being exposed. With RFK as attorney general, J Edgar Hoover of the FBI could no longer protect the mob. Top mafia chieftains including Carlos Marcello and Salvatore Trafficante risked trading their sweet mafia kingpin lifestyle for a life behind bars due to RFK’s crusade against the mafia. The CIA was out of control, and JFK had vowed to smash the CIA to 1000 pieces. Right wing cold warrior generals in charge on the US military were just itching for a (possibly nuclear) war with the Soviet Union, and JFK’s calls for peace were viewed as being treason among the right wing set. Leaders of giant companies used to having a compliant government do their bidding found that JFK actually looked out for the interests of the little guy. Add on to this, the Kennedys’ support for the civil rights movement gaining strength in the South, and a huge array of powerful entrenched, entitled interests was in position to be mobilized to resist change.

But potential does not equal action, and it took the political genius of Lyndon Baines Johnson to activate these forces to bring about a coup d’état. The Kennedys and Johnson were involved in a sub-rosa war from the beginning on their administration. Bobby Kennedy was telling the Washington press corps that it was open season on LBJ, and Bobby was having the justice department feed information on LBJ’s corruption to a number of different Senate investigations any one of which could have ended LBJ’s career and started his slide toward prison.

But LBJ may not have needed the impetus of fear for his career and freedom to motivate him to kill JFK. As majority leader of the Senate, LBJ was arguably the second most powerful man in Washington. Many of his colleagues were surprised when LBJ accepted the nomination for vice president, an office which his fellow Texan and former vice president John Garner described as being “not worth a bucket of warm piss”. Clare Boothe Luce asked LBJ why he agreed to be VP, and LBJ told her that he had done research and 6 out of 33 of the presidents had managed to achieve office without being elected, and he told her “I’m a gambling man.” But a study of LBJ’s history shows that he was anything but a gambling man. In fact, LBJ was a man who left nothing to chance. Most likely, LBJ planned to kill JFK from the moment he considered becoming vice president.

Although John F. Kennedy was finally killed in Dallas on Nov 22, 1963, the plot to kill him was active for at least a couple of years. The first attempt to kill JFK, of which I am aware, was to take place in Mexico City at the end of June 1962 but was aborted due to last minute escape problems. From that time on, JFK was a hunted man. Other attempts were planned for Los Angeles, Grand Rapids, Chicago, Tampa, Miami, and Houston. The planned assassination attempt on JFK in Miami on June 18, 1963 was foiled when people loyal to JFK leaked word of the plot and the planned motorcade was canceled in favor of helicopter transport.

By the time Nov 22nd rolled around, LBJ was getting increasingly desperate. The Dec 6, 1963 issue of Life Magazine, due to be printed and mailed on Nov 29, 1963, was set to run an expose of Lyndon Johnson’s corruption that could have ended his career. The earlier plots to kill JFK that were designed with more distance between the coup plotters and the trigger men had failed, and now Johnson risked more active involvement by having his people directly orchestrate both the motorcade planning and the take apart of the president’s secret service protection.

By the time JFK’s motorcade rolled through Dallas, little had been left to chance. As Chauncy Holt said, “There were more mercenaries in Dealey Plaza that day than at a Soldier of Fortune convention”. The success of the Coup depended not upon the ability of the shooters to escape undetected, but upon the certitude that the cabal behind the assassination could control the investigation and the story reported in the media. JFK had no idea how little chance he had of making it through Dealey Plaza alive. The Dallas police protection of the motorcade route ended right at the start of Dealey Plaza. In fact, one of the shooters was probably a Dallas police officer. The secret service protection surrounding JFK was removed. In my estimate, 6 shooters awaited from a variety of vantage points. The secret service agent driving JFK’s car brought the car to a complete stop, and a barrage of shots from all directions converged on JFK. After confirming that JFK had been killed, JFK’s driver put the car in motion and continued driving.

The Coup of ’63 did not end with the killing of JFK. The shooting part of the assassination was relatively small compared to the cover up. The planning for the cover up was built into fabric of the plot. Lee Harvey Oswald was set up as the patsy. Oswald did not fire a shot in Dallas. Lee Harvey Oswald was a CIA contract agent who had been sent into Russia as a fake defector. He then returned to the US and used his time in Russia as an entry into the left wing pro-Castro movement. Lee Harvey Oswald is a fairly minor character in the Coup of ’63, but through him, a multi-layered counter-intelligence plot can be seen.

The Coup of ’63 had within it many, many contingency strategies built. The Coup went almost according to plan. The only thing that went wrong on Nov 22, 1963 was that the Dallas police failed to kill Lee Harvey Oswald, so Jack Ruby was tasked with the ensuing killing of Oswald. However, the coup plotters had no way of knowing that things would go so smoothly, so they embedded within Oswald a variety of cover stories which could have been deployed under different scenarios. Oswald could have been made to look like a racist, a Cuban, a Russian, or even to have mob ties. However, since the Coup went so close to plan, he was declared to be a lone nut and dismissed as such.

The contingencies beyond how to blame Oswald were much more serious. If it were superficially obvious that JFK’s killing was the result of a conspiracy, Castro was to be blamed, and an invasion of Cuba was to quickly follow. Many anti-Castro Cubans who participated in the Coup were deeply disappointed that the invasion of Cuba never materialized.

My studies of the Coup of ’63 have led me to believe that even graver fall back strategies were embedded in the plot. If JFK’s killing was obviously perceived as being part of a large conspiracy, and the US public was not buying the Castro did it angle, the Coup plotters were in truly dire straits. These desperate men who ran the military, the FBI, some of largest companies in the world, and the US government faced the prospect of being hung for treason. I believe that the darkest scenarios envisioned by the Coup plotters involved declaring martial law and blaming the Russians and taking the country to (and possibly over) the brink of nuclear war with Russia.

Interestingly, the Russian intelligence was aware of the plans to kill Kennedy, and they were aware that through Lee Harvey Oswald they were to be set up to take the blame. So in September of 1963, the KGB attempted to kill Lee Harvey Oswald to prevent themselves from being sucked into a false war, but the assassination capabilities of the Russians within the United States were fairly limited, and the KGB was unable to kill Oswald.

The Reagan Administration and the Bush “Enterprise”

The Reagan Administration– Essay by Mark Gorton

From-Mark Gorton of Tower Research

50 Years of the Deep State  (a draft book 11-22-2013)

 

Within an hour of Reagan being sworn in as President, the Iranians released the hostages. As Vice President, George H.W. Bush was able to assume unprecedented control over the national security infrastructure without Reagan understanding what was happening. Republican/CIA Counter Surprise point man William Casey was rewarded for his act of treason by being made Director of the CIA. With Bush as VP, Casey as DCI, and Reagan dozing on the job, the Cabal was well positioned to run the country behind the scenes.

As Vice President, Bush represented the United States on a committee of heads of international intelligence agencies. This working group had the capability to task a number of assassination teams from a variety of intelligence agencies. Without any formal or legal oversight, this committee had the power to kill with impunity nearly anyone in the world.

Just two months into the Reagan administration, John Hinckley Jr. attempted to kill Ronald Reagan. There is good reason to believe that this planned assassination was another attempted coup d’état. The Bush and Hinckley families were close. The day after the assassination attempt, John Hinckley’s brother, Scott, was schedule to have dinner with Vice President Bush’s son, Neil. In addition, earlier in his career, John Hinckley Sr., the gunman’s father, worked for World Vision, an organization with close ties to the intelligence community.

The Enterprise

Ensconced in the Vice President office, Bush set out to build a criminal organization without parallel in US history. Many elements of this criminal organization later became known under various names:Iran-Contra, the Savings and Loan Scandal, CIA/DEA drug trafficking, HUD fraud, etc. However, the press reports either failed to comprehend or refused to report the common organization behind these crimes. Iran-Contra conspirator General Richard Secord called it “The Enterprise”, and that term perhaps best describes the organization. The Enterprise was a massive 5000 person large hierarchical criminal organization with George H.W. Bush as its CEO.

The Enterprise was a multifaceted criminal conglomerate that ran a large number of criminal activities including: drug trafficking, arms trafficking, savings and loan fraud, securities fraud, oil and gas fraud, insurance fraud, and real estate fraud. Embedded within the national security infrastructure and protected from prosecution by corrupted enforcement agencies like the SEC, FBI, DEA, ATF, etc., The Enterprise embarked on a massive criminal romp.

Senior members of The Enterprise included William Casey, Richard Secord, Richard Armitage, Oliver North, John Poindexter, Edwin Wilson, Thomas Clines, Donald Gregg and Felix Rodriguez. During this time, the transition of the Cabal to an increasingly Bush family centered syndicate continued. Much like a mob family, the next generation of the Bush family was brought into the family crime business. Members of the younger generation of the Bush family specialized in particular types of fraud. George W. Bush’s specialty was insurance fraud; Neil Bush specialized in real estate fraud; Jeb Bush was involved in a wider variety of frauds (banking, securities, real estate, oil and gas, gold bullion, and aircraft brokerage frauds).

As with all George H.W. Bush operations, The Enterprise served many purposes. The most obvious motive was pure greed. Billions of dollars were plundered in a wide variety of frauds and crimes. But more importantly, Bush and the Cabal needed to spread and perpetuate a criminal milieu within government. An honest government was an enormous threat to Bush and the Cabal. They had (and have) a never ending need to continue to commit more crimes in order to create new generations of criminals to maintain the criminal environment which protected them.

Crime was the Bush family business. Just as Prescott Bush inducted George H.W. to the criminal life partially to protect himself from exposure of his WWII era treason, fraud and theft, George HW committed his sons to a life of crime, so that the next generation would do their duty to protect their father and their family’s criminal past.

The financial frauds conducted by The Enterprise were designed to implicate, enrich and entrap a huge swath of the political class in DC. Fraudulent securities or oil and gas deals were offered to friends to enrich them and enemies to entrap them. In some cases, enemies were suckered in with easy profits on small investments only to be bankrupted when larger fraudulent investments imploded. By the time that the Iran Contra scandal made the headlines, such a large number of congressmen and DC insiders were implicated that any attempt to expose the scale of the scandal would have resulted in a near wholesale implication of the political class. In many ways, this endemic corruption is what makes political reform in Washington so difficult, the level of corruption is so pervasive that the political class has no choice but to cover for each other’s crimes or risk mutually assured destruction.

George H.W. Bush was the greatest criminal mastermind in American history. His criminal operations work on many, many levels. In addition to pure looting, the building and strengthening of his criminal base within government, and the systematic corruption and control of political class in Washington, the Iran-Contra operation served another, little understood purpose.

Eventually, the large scale looting of the Savings and Loans, the securities fraud, the oil and gas frauds, the insurance frauds all began to come to light, and the end of The Enterprise was clearly in sight. At this point, an attempt was made to deliberately expose some drug and gun running aspects of the Enterprise and to blame them on Reagan in an attempt to force him to resign. The falsely blaming the president for crimes with which he was not associated has strong parallels to the Watergate Coup and makes Iran – Contra the fourth Coup attempt in George H.W. Bush’s career. However, Reagan loyalists Edwin Meese and George Shultz were able to fight off the coup, and Reagan’s presidency survived. One reason that understanding The Enterprise is important today is that the network of people involved in the Enterprise did not go away. These individuals continued their long, active criminal careers and some of the people responsible for the 9/11 operation can be found to have previous working relationships during the days of The Enterprise.

As the large variety of crimes associated with The Enterprise came to light, and the press reported on a variety of scandals, senior leadership of The Enterprise needed to insulate themselves from exposure. The tactic used to protect the upper management of The Enterprise was the systematic killing of a huge number of middle level players in The Enterprise. In all, over 400 people were killed in the cover up of the crimes of The Enterprise. The vast majority of those killed were mid-level operational members of The Enterprise, but a fair number of reporters were also killed to keep the true nature of the organization from being exposed.

In order to facilitate the cover up, Congress began an investigation by establishing The House Select Committee to Investigate Covert Arms Transactions with Iran. The most important figure on the committee was senior Republican member, Richard Cheney. As a result, George H.W. Bush was totally exonerated by the final report.
