“ ‘We’re all puppets,’ the suspect [Sirhan Sirhan] replied, with more truth than he could have understood at that moment.”

– Lisa Pease, quoting from the LAPD questioning of Sirhan

ORDER IT NOW

When Senator Robert Kennedy was assassinated on June 5, 1968, the American public fell into an hypnotic trance in which they have remained ever since. The overwhelming majority accepted what was presented by government authorities as an open and shut case that a young Palestinian American, Sirhan Sirhan, had murdered RFK because of his support for Israel, a false accusation whose ramifications echo down the years. That this was patently untrue and was contradicted by overwhelming evidence made no difference.

Sirhan did not kill Robert Kennedy, yet he remains in jail to this very day. Robert Kennedy, Jr., who was 14 years old at the time of his father’s death, has visited Sirhan in prison, claims he is innocent, and believes there was another gunman. Paul Schrade, an aide to the senator and the first person shot that night, also says Sirhan didn’t do it. Both have plenty of evidence. And they are not alone.

There is a vast body of documented evidence to prove this, an indisputably logical case marshalled by serious writers and researchers. Lisa Pease is the latest. It is a reason why a group of 60 prominent Americans has recently called for a reopening of, not just this case, but those of JFK, MLK, and Malcom X. The blood of these men cries out for the revelation of the truth that the United States national security state and its media accomplices have fought so mightily to keep hidden for so many years.

That they have worked so hard at this reveals how dangerous the truth about these assassinations still is to this secret government that wages propaganda war against the American people and real wars around the world. It is a government of Democrats, Republicans, and their intelligence allies working together today to confuse the American people and provoke Russia in a most dangerous game that could lead to nuclear war, a possibility that so frightened JFK and RFK after the Cuban Missile Crisis that they devoted themselves to ending the Cold War, reconciling with the Soviet Union, abolishing nuclear weapons, reining in of the power of the CIA, and withdrawing from Vietnam. That is why they were killed.

The web of deceit surrounding the now officially debunked Democratic led Russia-gate propaganda operation that has strengthened Trump to double-down on his anti-Russia operations (a Democratic goal) is an example of the perfidious and sophisticated mutuality of this game of mass mind-control.

The killing of the Kennedys and today’s new Cold War and war against terror are two ends of a linked intelligence operation.

Moreover, more than any other assassination of the 1960s, it is the killing of Bobby Kennedy that has remained shrouded in the most ignorance.

It is one of the greatest propaganda success stories of American history.

In her exhaustive new examination of the case, A Lie Too Big To Fail, Lisa Pease puts it succinctly at the conclusion of her unravelling of the official lies that have mesmerized the public:

The assassination of the top four leaders of the political left in the five year period – President John Kennedy in 1963, Malcolm X in 1965, and Martin Luther King, Jr. and Senator Robert Kennedy in 1968 – represented nothing less than a slow-motion coup on the political scene.

If anyone wishes to understand what has happened to the United States since this coup, and thus to its countless victims at home and throughout the world, one must understand these assassinations and how the alleged assassins were manipulated by the coup organizers and how the public was hoodwinked in a mind-control operation on a vast scale. It is not ancient history, for the forces that killed these leaders rule the U.S. today, and their ruthlessness has subsequently informed the actions of almost all political leaders in the years since. A bullet to the head when you seriously talk about peace and justice is a not so gentle reminder to toe the line or else.

“But the way the CIA took over America in the 1960s is the story of our time,” writes Pease, “and too few recognize this. We can’t fix a problem we can’t even acknowledge exists.” Nothing could be truer.

Lisa Pease has long recognized the problem, and for the past twenty-five years, she has devoted herself to shedding light on the CIA’s culpability, particularly in the Robert Kennedy case. Few people possess the grit and grace to spend so much of their lives walking this path of truth. The extent of her research is dazzling, so dazzling in its voluminous detail that a reviewer can only touch on it here and there. She has written a book that is daunting in its comprehensiveness. It demands focused attention and perseverance, for it runs to over 500 pages with more than 800 footnotes. This book will remain a touchstone for future research on the RFK assassination, whether one agrees or disagrees with all of her detailed findings and speculations. For this book is so vast and meticulous in its examination of all aspects of the case that one can surely find areas that one might question or disagree with.

Nevertheless, Pease fundamentally proves that Sirhan did not shoot RFK and that there was a conspiracy organized and carried out by shadowy intelligence forces that did so. These same forces worked with the Los Angeles Police Department, federal, state, and judicial elements to make sure Sirhan was quickly accused of being the lone assassin and dispatched to prison after a show trial. And the mass media carried out its assigned role of affirming the government’s case to shield the real killers and to make sure the cover-up was successful.

No doubt others will investigate this case further. Yet I think no more research is really needed, for as with these other assassinations, additional analyses will only result in pseudo-debates about minutiae. Such debates will only serve to prolong the hallucinatory grip the perpetrators of these crimes have on a day of reckoning, suggesting as they would that we do not really know what happened. This is an old tactic meant to delay forevermore such a day of reckoning.

The facts are clear for all to see if they have the will to truth. All that is now needed is a public tribunal, which is planned for later this year, in which the fundamental, clear-cut facts of these cases are presented to the American public. In the case of Robert Kennedy’s assassination as with the others, a little knowledge goes a long way, and only those who are closed to basic logic and evidence will refuse to see that government forces conspired to kill these men and did so because all were seeking peace and justice that was then, and is now, a threat to the war-making forces of wealth and power that control the American government.

Pease writes:

Anyone who has looked closely and honestly at the evidence has realized that more than one person was involved in Robert Kennedy’s death. So why can’t reporters see this? Why can’t the media explain this? Because the media and the government are two sides of the same coin, and those who challenge the government’s version of history, as numerous reporters have found out, all too often lose status and sometimes whole careers. Kristina Borjesson published an anthology of such stories in her book Into the Buzzsaw, in which journalists describe how they lost their careers when each of them expressed a truth that the government did not want exposed.

Lisa Pease discloses such truths. I am reporting on her work. Therefore, the mainstream media, except for an extraordinary reporter or two, such as Tom Jackman of The Washington Post, will likely ignore both of us, but the publication where you are reading this is on the side of truth, and in the disclosure of truth lies our hope.

Since more than one person was involved in the killing of RFK, there was – ipso facto – a conspiracy. This is not theory but fact. The fact of a conspiracy. For more than fifty years, mainstream reporters have been cowed by this word “conspiracy,” thanks to the CIA. Many others have been intelligence assets posing as journalists, regurgitating the lies. This is a fact.

The official story is that after giving his victory speech for winning the 1968 Democratic California Primary, Kennedy, as he was walking through a crowded hotel pantry, was shot by Sirhan Sirhan, who was standing to his left between 3-6 feet away. Sirhan’s revolver held eight bullets, and as he was shooting, he was tackled by a group of large men who subdued him. All witnesses place Sirhan in front of Kennedy and all claim he was firing a gun.

Fact: As the autopsy definitively showed, RFK was shot from the rear at point blank range, three bullets entering his body, with the fatal headshot coming upward at a 45-degree angle from 1-3 inches behind his right ear. Not one bullet from Sirhan’s gun hit the Senator. In addition, an audio recording shows that many more bullets than the eight in Sirhan’s gun were fired in the hotel pantry that night. It was impossible for Sirhan to have killed RFK.

Let me repeat: More than one gunman, contrary to the government’s claims, equals a conspiracy. So why lie about that?

What is amazing is that the obvious conclusion to such simple syllogistic logic (Sirhan in front, bullets in the back, therefore…) that a child could understand has been dismissed by the authorities for fifty-one years. The fact that the government authorities – the LAPD, the Sheriff’s Office, the District Attorney, federal and state government officials, the FBI, the CIA – have from the start so assiduously done all in their power to pin the blame on “a lone assassin,” Sirhan, proves they are part of a coordinated cover-up, which in turn suggests their involvement in the crime.

The fact that Robert Kennedy was shot from the back and not the front where Sirhan was standing immediately brings to mind the Zapruder film that shows that JFK was killed from the front right and not from the 6th floor rear where Oswald was allegedly shooting from. That unexpected film evidence was hidden from the public for many years, but when it was finally seen, the case for a government conspiracy was solidified.

While no such video evidence has surfaced in the RFK case, the LAPD made sure that no photographic evidence contradicting the official lies would be seen. As Lisa Pease writes:

Less than two months after the assassination, the LAPD took the extraordinary step of burning some 2,400 photos from the case in Los Angeles County General’s medical waste incinerator. Why destroy thousands of photos in an incinerator if there was nothing to hide? The LAPD kept hundreds of innocuous crowd scene photos that showed no girl in a polka dot dress or no suspicious activities or individuals. Why were those photos preserved? Perhaps because those photos had nothing in them that warranted their destruction.

While “perhaps” is a mild word, the cover-up of “the girl in the polka dot dress” needs no perhaps. Dozens of people reported seeing a suspicious, curvaceous girl in a white dress with black polka dots with Sirhan in the pantry and other places. She was seen with various other men as well. The evidence for her involvement in the assassination is overwhelming, and yet the LAPD did all in its power to deny this by browbeating witnesses and by allowing her to escape.

Sandra Serrano, a Kennedy campaign worker and a courageous witness, was bullied by the CIA-connected police interrogator Sergeant Enrique “Hank” Hernandez. She had been sitting outside on a metal fire escape getting some air when the polka dot dress girl, accompanied by a man, ran out and down the stairs, shouting, “We’ve shot him, we’ve shot him.” When Serrano asked whom did they shoot, the girl replied, “We’ve shot Senator Kennedy.” Then she and her companion, both of whom Serrano had earlier seen ascending the stairs with Sirhan, disappeared into the night. A little over an hour after the shooting Serrano was interviewed on live television by NBC’s Sander Vanocur where she recounted this. And there were others who saw and heard this girl say the same thing as she and her companion fled the crime scene. Nevertheless, the LAPD, led by Lieutenant Manuel Pena, also CIA affiliated, who was brought out of retirement to run the investigation dubbed “Special Unit Senator,” worked with Hernandez and others to dismiss the girl as of no consequence.

Lisa Pease covers all this and much more. She shows how Sirhan was obviously hypnotized, how the trial was a farce, how the police destroyed evidence from the door frames in the pantry that proved more than the eight bullets in Sirhan’s gun were fired, how Officer DeWayne Wolfer manipulated the ballistic evidence, etc. Through years of digging into court records, archives, transcripts, the public library, and doing countless interviews, she proves without a doubt that Sirhan did not kill Kennedy and that the assassination and the cover-up were part of a very sophisticated intelligence operation involving many parts and players. She shows how no matter what route Kennedy took in the hotel that night, the killers had all exits covered and that he would not be allowed to leave alive.

While some of her more speculative points – e.g. that Robert Maheu (Howard Hughes/CIA) was “the most credible high-level suspect for the planner of Robert Kennedy’s assassination,” that Kennedy was shot twice in the head from behind, etc. are open to debate, they do not detract from her fundamentally powerful case that RFK, like his brother John, was assassinated by a CIA-run operation intended to silence their voices of courageous resistance to an expanding secret government dedicated to war, murder, and human exploitation. The U.S. government of today.

When Bobby Kennedy was entering the kitchen pantry, he was escorted by a security guard named Thane Eugene Cesar, a man long suspected of being the assassin. Cesar was carrying a gun that he drew but denied firing, despite witnesses’ claims to the contrary. Conveniently, the police never examined the gun. He has long been suspected of being CIA affiliated, and now Pease says she has found evidence to confirm that. She writes, “It’s hard to overstate the significance of finding a current or future CIA contract agent holding Kennedy’s right arm at the moment of the shooting.”

Yes, it is. As she rightly claims, the CIA takeover of America in the 1960s is the story of our time. And our time is now. None of this is ancient history. That is so crucial to grasp. For those who think that learning the truth about the 1960s assassinations is an exercise in futility reserved for those who are living in the past, they need to think again. Our descent into endless war and massive media propaganda to support it is part of a long-term project that began with the elimination of JFK, Malcom X, MLK, and Robert Kennedy. They were killed for reasons, and those reasons still exist, even if they don’t physically, but only in spirit. Their killers roam the land because they have become far more deeply part of the institutional structure of government and the media.

Pease says:

It was horrible that Robert Kennedy was taken from us far too soon. It is horrible that one man has borne the guilt for an operation he neither planned nor willingly participated in. It’s horrible the conspiracy was so obvious that bullets had to be lost and switched to hide it. And it’s horrible that the mainstream media has never dared to tell the people of this country that the government lied to us about what they really found when they looked into this case. Until the media can deal with the truth of the Robert Kennedy assassination, and until the people can be made aware of the CIA’s role in slanting the truth on topics of great importance, America’s very survival is in jeopardy….We’ve come perilously close to losing democracy itself because of fake, CIA-sponsored stories about our history. Should America ever become a dictatorship, the epitaph of our democracy must include the role the mainstream media, by bowing to the National Security state, played in killing it.

By writing A Lie Too Big To Fail, Lisa Pease has done her valiant part in refuting the lie that is now failing. Now it is up to all of us to spread the word of truth by focusing on the fundamental facts so we can finally take back our country from the CIA.

Then we can say with RFK and his favorite poet Aeschylus:

And even in our sleep, pain which cannot forget falls drop by drop upon the heart, until in our own despair, against our will, comes wisdom through the awful grace of God.

    Attorney General RFK was certainly gangsterish in the way he drove the CIA to kill Castro during his brother’s administration.

    “You sound like a CIA mouthpiece.”

    I wish. If I was a CIA mouthpiece I could afford a better apartment.

    From Legacy of Ashes The History of the CIA (2007) by Tim Weiner pg.209 “In November 1961, in the greatest secrecy, John and Bobby Kennedy created a new planning cell for covert action, the Special Group (Augmented). It was RFK’s outfit, and it had one mission: eliminating Castro.”

    Tim Weiner is a former reporter for The New York Times and a Pulitzer Prize winner. He’s very establishment and mainstream. There are many published histories of the CIA’s Bay of Pigs/Operation Mongoose fiasco written by authors of varying political inclinations. I haven’t read them all, but most seem to align with the fact that RFK was constantly looking over the shoulder of Bill Harvey who was running the “executive action” program, code-named Rifle, which was specifically set-up to kill Castro.

    I bought Lisa Pease’s book and look forward to reading it. I have done some research into the RFK assassination for a previous project. I came to the conclusion that RFK was killed by a CIA-affiliated network. The snake he was riding during his brother’s administration came back and ate him.

    If you have any leads on a CIA mouthpiece position let me know.

    Your research has failed. Santo Trafficante was not a Florida crime boss. He was located in New Orleans.

    And from the definitive book on the early CIA, “The Devil’s Chessboard” comes this:

    “Harvey kept much of the operation, including their assassination efforts against Castro, a secret from President Kennedy….Harvey grew deeply contemptuous of the Kennedy brothers, whom he regarded as rich boys who were playing with the the nation’s security. He concluded that their subversion proram aimed at overthrowing Castro’s regime, code-named Operation Mongoose, was all for show….Harvey came to hate Bobby Kennedy….most of all.

    “‘Bobby Kennedy and my husband were absolute enemies, just pure inemies,’ recalled CG Harvey in her retirement home, channeling Bill Harvey’s deep resentments years later. ‘[Bobby] was an idiot…and he had no confidence in himself…’”

    “The tension between the two men finally exploded in October 1962, when Harvey schemed with the Pentagon to send a series of raiding parties into Cuba….RFK was outraged by Harvey’s reckless behavior.”

    In other words, Bobby wasn’t doing anything but placating the crazies in the CIA, who saw through his pacifist behavior and resented him even hated him for it.

    By the way, proclaiming a writer for the New York Times as some kind of badge of authority and authenticity….really? You read the Times lately? And check out what gets you a Pulitzer now….

    “The Devil’s Chessboard” remains the authentic account of these events. Tim Weiner is not.

  8. @restless94110

    “Your research has failed. Santo Trafficante was not a Florida crime boss. He was located in New Orleans.”

    Santo Trafficante Jr. inherited Mafia operations in pre-Castro Cuba and Florida from his father, Santo Trafficante Sr.. Take a quick trip to Wikipedia to see if this is correct.

    “The Devil’s Chessboard remains the authentic account of these events.”

    I read The Devil’s Chessboard (2016) by David Talbot, and found it to be an interesting illumination of the evil within Allen Dulles. I recommend it to those curious about the power system of postwar America. Talbot also wrote Brothers (2007), which covers, among other things, RFK’s plans and movements in the aftermath of his brother’s murder.

    Tim Weiner, like Talbot, is one of many authors who have covered the relationship between the Kennedy brothers and the CIA. I don’t hang my hat on one source.

    RFK was a fervent anti-communist in the years leading up to his brother’s death. I think he got woke, to use the parlance of our times, after Dallas.

    You and the author of the above article seem to view the Kennedy brothers and their legacy through the same soft focus lens of hagiography.

    I’ve heard some of this before and I agree with the central premise that elements of the CIA did take over America. But now it has metastasized and is more like a CIA\business mafia or combine. CIA has moved its people into key places in finance and banking.

    For example, the head of AIG was reputedly (former) CIA. At times it looks like all the major intelligence agencies got together and overthrew their own governments. Putin was KGB, back when hey had KGB. Mossad and other Israel intelligence have taken control of Israel. British intelligence the same. Turkey is where the Deep State got its name.

    Aeschylus gets new every century. And nobody ever learns the easy way even now, it takes pain.

    Bobby Kennedy isn’t the issue. Jack Kennedy isn’t the issue.

    The issue is a “permanent establishment” (which is what Kevin Phillips dubbed it many years before “deep state” became a meme) was able to stage a coup d’état and get away with it. There are some say it started even earlier, Eisenhower had a bad heart, went to the hospital, and never recovered the nuclear codes. The NSA got ’em and wouldn’t let the old man have them back.

    The Permanent Establishment/Deep State hated Nixon, too. and we all know they ran him and all his mates out of town too.

    So. People who hate the secret state’s enemies are okay with cancelling the votes of millions and just running them out. So quit complaining about the large (and growing) No Vote block because they already know the dogs will get unleashed on anyone who don’t keep the borders open, keep the money flowing to Israel, and all that.

    You are perhaps confusing the CIA attempts to kill Castro with the CIA machinations tha resulted in the assassination of the Diem brothers a few weeks before JFK’s assassination. . Although he had no official position that would lead one to think so, during the time his brother was president Robert Kennedy was directing the anti Casto operations of the CIA, which included assassination plots against Castro up until the Cuban Missile crisis. As the title of a book on these events has it and as out Lord said, “all they that take the sword shall perish with the sword.”

    I’ve not missed the point at all. I am discussing a different point, the bone-headed misrepresentation of the Kennedys. This matters: if someone argues that the assassination of those gangsters was proof positive of a conspiracy by the Establishment, he weakens his argument no end by misrepresenting the politics of the Kennedys. If you misrepresent them then you undermine any claim of understanding the motives of the purported Establishment plot. In other words, you undermine your whole thesis.

  19. “If Cuba was under the control of gangsters, where did Castro come from?”

    Good question. Fulgencio Batista, the president of Cuba before Castro came down from the mountains, allowed Meyer Lansky and the Trafficante organization to operate freely in his country — gambling, prostitution, narcotics, the whole racket. I assume Castro was funded by the USSR to some extent. But whether Castro was an authentic revolutionary or the pawn of some hidden hand (other than the Russkies), I don’t know. Mussolini and the Sicilian Mafia, another good question. I do know the ONI worked with Lucky Luciano during World War II (Operation Underworld), and the OSS used Luciano’s contacts with the Sicilian Mafia during the war, which later formed the basis for the relationship between certain mob elements, including the Corsican underworld, and American intelligence after the war. In postwar America, John Rosselli became the key point of contact between CIA and the American Mafia. And that takes us back to Operation Mongoose during the JFK administration.

    From Legacy of Ashes The History of the CIA by Tim Weiner pg.142 “In April 1956, Israel’s spies delivered the text to James Angleton, who became the CIA’s one-man liaison with the Jewish state.”

    I have a much more conspiratorial view of the CIA, Angleton, and Israel than Weiner. The reason why I referenced his book to the author of the above article — in order to disprove his contention that RFK had no involvement in the kill-Castro schemes of the JFK administration — is because Weiner is an establishment-liberal figure. Establishment liberalism has deified John and Robert Kennedy.

    It’s too bad The Unz Review couldn’t find a more competent author than Edward Curtin to write about the RFK assassination; it really is quite a story, filled with memorable characters.

    Is this authentic rationality, as when someone looks through their own eyes, because to me seems it seems very like the plot of countless movies. According to Curtin: mass media, official commissions and the government’s view of events are dissimulation, but it seems we are supposed to take mummery such as the Parallax View or the X Files film as the key to the the real.

    To paraphrase Chesterton, when men stop believing in government , they don’t believe in nothing; they believe in anything. Posing as exponents of authentic rationality, they spout second hand cynicism and end up as totally gullible. Countless thrillers have sinister CIA-like government departments as the baddies.

Since 1946… OC has used it masses of money to support many in elections (campaigns can launder lots of money) Organized crime moved first into industry, then banking and securities and then into education and government. WWI and WWII provided OC with initimate access to government and international affairs.
    The major players in the war industries learned from the wars the benefits of being a government or a government contractor. After Al Capone was tamed, Organized Crime quit buying off government and its lobbyists, and started to infiltrate the government. Much easier to manage criminal empires by imposing laws, that protect those who violate the rights and privileges of others. Comforting to know OC figures will not be prosecuted for crimes that are discovered. Thanks for the great article.. I question whether or not it is necessary to go back to Kennedy to prove your point. The trail is cold.

    This article reminds me of when I read “The Devils Chessboard”. I wondered, why I would find a book that contains such political dynamite in my local bookstore and half a year later even the translation. And then, when I checked a few of it’s claims on the internet I came upon a link to Michael Collins Pipers “Final Judgement” – and that was about the only time, when I was really chocked by what I found.
    The strongest indication that Piper was spot on is the fact that even in that book there was nothing but a most obscure hint to the Israel connection of James Jesus Angleton. With this book it will be similar.

    The Four Horsemen of Banking (Bank of America, JP Morgan Chase, Citigroup and Wells Fargo) own the Four Horsemen of Oil (Exxon Mobil, Royal Dutch/Shell, BP and Chevron Texaco); in tandem with Deutsche Bank, BNP, Barclays and other European old money behemoths.

    Their monopoly over the global economy does not end at the edge of the oil patch. According to company 10K filings to the SEC, the Four Horsemen of Banking are among the top ten stock holders of virtually every Fortune 500 corporation.

    So who then are the stockholders in these money center banks? This information is guarded much more closely. My queries to bank regulatory agencies regarding stock ownership in the top 25 US bank holding companies were given Freedom of Information Act status, before being denied on “national security” grounds. …

    The first President of BIS [Bank for International Settlements] was Rockefeller banker Gates McGarrah – an official at Chase Manhattan and the Federal Reserve. McGarrah was the grandfather of former CIA director Richard Helms. The Rockefellers- like the Morgans – had close ties to London. …

    The Dulles and Rockefeller families are cousins. Allen Dulles created the CIA, assisted the Nazis, covered up the Kennedy hit from his Warren Commission perch and struck a deal with the Muslim Brotherhood to create mind-controlled assassins. Brother John Foster Dulles presided over the phony Goldman Sachs trusts before the 1929 stock market crash and helped his brother overthrow governments in Iran and Guatemala.

    Which means:

    1] the CIA, as part of the government, is also a “100% corrupt criminal scam”.

    2] JFK and RFK, as members of that 100% corrupt criminal organization called “government” , were themselves essentially nothing less than 100% crooks. [As are all other government employees, everywhere.]

    3] As a crook, JFK and RFK was taken out by other crooks who were part of the exact same criminal organization . This is just “standard operating procedure” for “power-plays”within all criminal organizations.

    Go watch the “Godfather” movies for illumination, or read a Shakespeare play that is concerned with kings, queens, royal power etc.

    Bottom line: Get over it – if you want governments in the first place this [ crooks being murdered by other crooks within the same organization] and then blatantly lying about it via their mouthpiece- ie the MSM], is what you inevitably will get. Every time, no matter who you vote for or what they promise to do once in power.

    So like I said, get over it, unless, that is, you want to seriously consider [at the very least], drastically, right now [ or ASAP], downsizing the government by around 95% via a return to its original constitutional functions.

    And, in case you were wondering, yes ,even at 5% of its current size and supposedly under “constitutional limitations”, the federal government would still be a 100% criminal organization. It would, however, initially be a much smaller 100% criminal organization- at least for a short while [10 years?].

    And, by the way, the CIA is an entirely “unconstitutional” agency, as is the FBI, Homeland Security, the DEA, the EPA, the Dept. of Education, the welfare state, and just about every other part of the 100% corrupt criminal organization known as “the US federal government”.

  60. A Lie Too Big To Fail: The Real History of the Assassination of Robert F. Kennedy, by Lisa Pease, is perhaps a well-intentioned book, but based on wrong premises. Contrary to what this author claims, the CIA was not captured by insiders in the 1960s. Actually, from its very creation in 1947, when President Truman signed the National Security Act and created the Central Intelligence Agency, the CIA was a tool of the Rockefellers and their globalist minions at the Council on Foreign Relations.
    As its predecessor, the OSS, the CIA was never used as an intelligence agency. Its real mission was to run special operations, from psywar to assassinations, on behalf of its true masters. Moreover, the CIA never tried to kill Castro, because Castro had been recruited by the CIA in early 1948 and sent to Bogotá, Colombia, to participate in the assassination of Colombian leader Gaitán and incite the Bogotazo riots.
    You may read the whole story in my book Psychological Warfare and the New World Order: The Secret War Against the American People.

    If you’re a White who likes affairmarive action discrimination against Whites, you should love the Kennedys.

    It was JFK who in February 1961, just weeks after he became President who ordered the federal government to ignore the merit civil service system and hire more and more blacks for federal jobs in DC bureaucracies and hiring unqualified blacks into the foreign service to impress the newl African countries with how much America loves blacks. JFK also brought Pres Obama’s father to the US as part of his love affair with Africa.

    As well as being a enthusiastic proponent of affirmative action for blacks, RFK attaches himself to Cesar Chavez Hispanic activist. Chavez was an American who advocated severe immigration restriction, not an open borders advocate.

    RFK advocated affirmative action for Puerto Ricans and their move to NY so RFK could be elected.

    Joseph Kennedy Jr was a heroin addict from his teen years till recently. He’s not an attorney. So Joe Jr read a court transcript!!!!! BFD Anyone can read a trial transcript

In 1979 the new prime minister, Margaret Thatcher, asked Oldfield to coordinate security and intelligence in Northern Ireland. Shortly afterwards it was discovered that he was using the services of male prostitutes.

People have to stop believing in fictional nonsense like “hypnotism “. It isn’t real, it’s just an old con or fantasy story. If that’s what the author is hanging her hat on, she’s already lost.

  86. I for one am not going to applaud the use of the CIA to undermine the civil rights of as a communist plot. I don’t think the tactics used by Robert Kennedy regarding communism in the 1950’s is praise worthy, I am not a communist or supportive of communism, but I do think they were entitled to due process, and that could hardly be said about 1950’s politics. In fact, it should not even been legal to investigate anyone merely because they claimed to be politics and to do so was a violation of the law —

    But nor am I going to applaud the murder of President Kennedy or Candidate/AG Robert Kennedy — no US citizen should be deprived of their citizenship protections. I will forever cringe at the knowledge that the FBI actually engaged in tactics to incite a suicide and more against US citizens.

    During the congressional hearings on torture, the CIA fought back by engaging tactics that were way out of bounds. And while members of Congress got comeuppance in that regard — it cannot be applauded.

They invited him to New York and elected him Senator just a couple years before. Robert was anti White, pro affirmative action, pro non White immigration pro school bussing and integrated schools and a pro Israel tool of AIPAC.

A Judengasse sort of thing, something carried over from the time when the Parasites first got together and set in motion a plan, ongoing until today, a plan to rule the whole Living Earth, and allow no other a foothold.
    A carry over, from the time of the Annunaki who did rule the whole Earth. The Annunaki, who did establish civilizations, societies, cities and towns with billions of humans in them. Peaceful and prosperous, until the Parasites, after hundreds of thousands of years, figured out they could do it themselves. The war that followed, would have destroyed all humanity, all the living Earth, except the Annunaki, decided to spare the living Earth, left this side of the Ice Wall, left humans to work it out themselves.
    We, are still working on it, right now the Rich have a pact against us who are the poor, a pact that has never let the rich down, yet. That pact is demanding that they, the rich stick together, that they never eat their own, that they deceive humans with religion, confusion, diversity and selfishness. Into this creature the CIA was born, the Agents, the Chosen Ones, Lieutenants, but very well paid, still, not one of the Filthy Rich, so their existence is tentative too.
    So, how can we beat the criminals who intend our early departure from life, the kinds of people who murdered the Kennedy’s and others, others who sought to do for US Citizens and free us from -the criminals? We can demand NO DUAL CITIZEN CAN EVER SERVE IN THE LEADERSHIP, a no brain’er if ever there were one; we can demand the END OF THE FEDERAL RESERVE, how is it: we finance, our own destruction!?
    Here’s one you never thought of, I bet: we can get on board with AOC and demand from the Filthy Rich who rule over us, who are the criminal mob that is killing us, we must demand of them that they give us more, a lot more, food, water, shelter, for all humanity, for all the living Earth. Better treatment of our true friends the animals, the original natives on Earth. No more Blood Sacrifices (wars)to them who are the Gods, the filthy rich men and women who plot day and night our demise.
    Today, for example I see where illegal immigrants send billions of dollars’ worth of wealth, every year, to their relatives in the lands they came from. Billions of dollars’ worth of wealth, that will be accounted to us Citizens here in our own nation, as DEBT. The Micro, as in loaning nations Leadership money to fight wars, to the Macro, as in loaning the whole world of humanity money so they can invade each other’s land, destroy the infrastructure of the land, kill the citizens, rob, rape and murder, a war of a different sort. Still, it is all the same, IT IS DEBT.
    As we break open our piggy banks, tasking the last few pennies from them to buy a piece of bread, as we scrap and scrounge, sell our stuff at yard sales, for a few dollars to buy the children lunch at school, the filthy rich throw trillions of dollars at each other, making armies, making machines to kill people. Holding all of us accountable, to DEBT, through USURY.
    Please, tell me, one aspect of human living that has went up, that has gotten better, of course, the rich have gotten richer, other than that, one aspect of human life that has gotten better these last few decades? These last few years, when the militaries have grown exponentially, when millions of innocent people have been sacrificed on the rich man’s altar, built to prove his love, for himself? Sure, we got I-Phones, and other gadgets that we now know are death ray machines, intending to weaken us, to dumb us down, to kill us. Chem-trails, Vaccines, 5G, Fluoride in the water, poison in the food and air, we are just sitting ducks, unless, we break them, first.

    But why would Nixon try to cover up a false flag?

    Because he had so many skeletons in his closets. What kind of skeletons? Bay of Pigs. JFK assassination. Jack Ruby.

    Richard M. Nixon was the darling of the ultra-right wing in Dallas. Even LBJ and Lady Bird were assaulted outside their Dallas hotel by a shrieking coven of right-wing harpies and Nixon supporters known as the Mink Coat Mob not long before the 1960 election, an event that probably cost Nixon the presidency.

    November 4, 1960, four days before the presidential election, LBJ travels to Dallas in a last-ditch effort to carry his home state. He is greeted at his hotel on Commerce Street by a group of angry protesters brought together by Republican Congressman Bruce Alger. The crowd, mostly women, is largely made up of Dallas high society—city leaders’ wives and daughters, former debutantes, and members of the Junior League. Several are wearing fur coats purchased at Nieman Marcus, just down the street. Onlookers joke that the unlikely gathering looks like a mink coat mob.

    Out in front of the hotel, Bruce Alger is whipping up the crowd: If Khrushchev could vote, he’d choose Kennedy-Johnson!

    […]

    On November 8, Americans retire for the night not knowing who their next president will be. It is one of the closest presidential elections in the nation’s history. The final numbers come down to Illinois and Texas. By morning, the fog has cleared, and John F. Kennedy has carried Illinois by the slimmest of totals, thanks to some suspicious late returns from the Democratic-controlled Chicago region that he visited the same day LBJ went to Dallas.

    Richard M. Nixon carries Dallas by nearly a two-to-one margin—his largest victory in any city in the country. But in the rest of Texas, the Kennedy-Johnson ticket stages a dramatic come-from-behind win, beating Nixon by a scant forty-six thousand votes.

    The triumph in Texas seals John F. Kennedy’s election—and an irony begins to emerge:

    Kennedy is being sent to the White House because of Dallas, Texas. Because a brawling mob in Dallas led last-minute voters to suddenly throw their support to Kennedy and Johnson.

    Nixon watched and knew it: “We lost Texas…because of that asshole congressman, you know.”

My about to be retired brother will be able to stay on in Georgetown and have me to stay thanks to the $15,000 you or your man has paid him to read the book and commence litigation without having to act pro bono. You should expect some very probing questions from him as he sizes up the strengths and weaknesses of your case. Look out for what may be attached to or follow from some of those 800 footnotes. Still, you have chosen well because he can see that, however unconvincing the broader Deep State thesis may be there really is a lot hanging on the forensics. How many guns? How many bullets? Where fired from (and how was RFK moving)? Once a conspiracy beyond Sirhan Sirhan is established you have the overwhelming probability that he was killed because of the investigation he might order as President, and from that flows a murky trail – not IMO including the Israelis (because, however ruthless, they wouldn’t in 1963, have dared kill the US President).

    You will be told that your broad brush isn’t good enough and much detail will need to be firmed up. Moi, for starters I am about to Google “what has the CIA budget been from 1950 to 2019” and “what have been the personnel numbers in the CIA from 1950 to 2019”.

    Good luck.

    Happy Birthday, NATO — the sinecure of super-thugs: “Operation Gladio: The Unholy Alliance Between The Vatican, The CIA, & The Mafia” https://www.zerohedge.com/news/2019-04-06/operation-gladio-unholy-alliance-between-vatican-cia-mafia

    Excerpts:

    The members of Gladio turned out to include not only hundreds of far-right figures in the intelligence, military, government, media, Church and corporate sectors, but a motley assortment of unreconstructed WW2 fascists, psychopaths and criminal underworld types to boot. Follow-up research traced connections to similar groups spread throughout Europe of which all were found to be deep state terrorist organizations, and all of which were found, ultimately, to be subservient unto the highest levels of the CIA and NATO command structures. …

    The historical context of ‘Gladio’, then, is really the quintessential backdrop to understanding the trademark false flag events of the modern era.

    … the initial $200 million in funding for Gladio (which had come from the Rockefeller and Mellon foundations) was quickly exhausted. … Paul Helliwell was an inner member of the original OSS [US Office of Strategic Services] along with key scions of the Morgan, Mellon, Vanderbilt, Carnegie, DuPont and Ryan families… and it was at his suggestion that Donovan elected to forge the deep bond (and that exists to this day) between the nation’s intelligence services and organized crime. …

    Quickly the streets of, first, New York, and later many an American metropolis, were flooded with heroin. These early, halcyon days would soon lead to the infamous ‘French Connection’, thence to the ‘Golden Triangle’ (where the CIA’s very own ‘Air America’ transported drugs out of South East Asia during the Vietnam War) and, later, to the Balkan, Mexican, and Colombian drug cartels.

  147. Faraway says:

    A good example, in my opinion, of the controled opposition’s strategy to indict the CIA rather than Israel. The story of our time is “the Zionist takeover of America in the 1960s, with Johnson’s help”, and that is what the Kennedy assassinations illustrate.

    Willy Wimmer, the former vice president of the OSCE Parliamentary Assembly: “NATO ‘broke away’ from International law, lost its legitimacy,” https://www.rt.com/news/455776-nato-legitimacy-international-law/

    As the US-led military alliance marked its 70th anniversary on Thursday, NATO chief Jens Stoltenberg stated that the bloc remains essential for global security. “We stand together, fight together, and, sometimes, die together,” he said in a speech in Washington

    Could the NATO chief Jens Stoltenberg just die, to spare the innocent people the profiteering mass-slaughtering schemas designed by NATO/CIA/Gladio thugs?

    NATO now serves the interests of Washington, along with its allies in London and Paris, all while requiring that other nations sacrifice their resources and the lives of their soldiers to promote the goals of the few…

    Germany spent €10 billion (US$11.2bn) in Afghanistan, and the lives of German soldiers and local civilians were lost “for nothing” after Berlin joined the NATO-led security mission there, launched after the US invasion.

    The biggest problem with NATO is the fact that it completely broke away from the UN Charter… and deliberately destroyed its international legitimacy by launching a war against Yugoslavia.

    President Nixon was not attempting to cover-up a false flag. He was rightly angered that the Spec Prosecutor was stepping beyond his mandate. In the media hyped criminal accusations, where the spec. prosecutor first began dashing into anything and everything the actual break-in became an excuse and a shadow for investigating anything and everything.

    Pres. nixon was attempting to protect his kegacy. And if SP Mueller had continued beyond collusion, which may come at the hands of some other body, there is no telling what the results would be. For some reason he chose to stay with the central cause, accusations of colluding.

  150. Abolishing the CIA should be a top priority for all civilized humanity, including all the NGO offshoots like NED, FDD and all the think tanks. Along with the MIC, defense contractors, private armies and mercenaries.

    Maybe by nationalizing all these corporations they could be controlled better. Take the profit out of war, maybe we would have less war.

    I doubt there will be a serious investigation into these assassinations or 9/11 as the entities that are responsible are in total control of the “government”. The fact is that governments aren’t “governments” any more but private corporations, with shareholders, operating in the public sector. Government was intended to be of the people, by the people, for the people, and to serve the people, not the corporation.

    Theres no separating the CIA from the capitalist system, Wall st investment banks, wars, and imperialism. You give up your rights, freedom and democratic values when everything is privatized and exists only to produce profits for the elite. These are The New World Order. Its always been this way, read Smedley Butler “War is a racket”

    The 1954 Guatemalan coup d’état, code-named Operation PBSUCCESS, was a covert operation carried out by the U.S. Central Intelligence Agency that deposed the democratically elected Guatemalan President Jacobo Árbenz and ended the Guatemalan Revolution of 1944–1954. It installed the military dictatorship of Carlos Castillo Armas, the first in a series of U.S.-backed authoritarian rulers in Guatemala.

    CIA worked with Rockefeller-owned United Fruit Company, a gigantic economic influence in Guatemala to overthrow the govt. Secretary of State John Foster Dulles was at the helm during the overthrow. His brother Allen was CIA director at the same time. At one point Allen Dulles had been president of United Fruit Company while his brother served as corporate counsel for the large corporation.

    Who became president of the United Fruit Company after the coup had been achieved and Jacobo Arbenz had been removed? It was none other than Walter Bedell Smith, who had formerly been CIA Director.

    The Dulles brothers jockeyed between “government service” and “private sector activity” with the highly connected, governmentally active Washington firm of Sullivan and Cromwell, attentively pursuing the interests of valued corporate clients whether there or in government.

    President Eisenhower conceded he felt exasperation and frustration in dealing with controversial Secretary of State Dulles, who bore the nickname of “John Foster Brinkmanship” based on his “brink of war” global geopolitical strategy.

    This is the swamp that needs draining if we want a future for our children, they will eventually destroy us all.

The Constructions in India, Cambodia, etc., so intricate, so out of this world; the huge stones used in the Megaliths, more than a thousand tons heavy, and bigger, much bigger. It is for sure what we have today is not the pinnacle of human civilization on Earth, civilizations that lasted for thousands of years, for tens of thousands of years, for hundreds of thousands of years.

    [MORE]

    Humans that lived for thousands of years, considering the Annunaki as the first humans, but then, even our kind of poorly designed human, designed to be only slaves, our kind of human lived to be hundreds of years old, then. Like our eyes tell us the Earth is flat, there is so much that tells us we are not the first millions, the first billions, the best of the best.
    Today our children are being programmed to believe the same crap we were programmed to believe, all of it lies. We thought we had a Constitution, a Bill of Rights, then we get Red Light Cameras, Swat Teams, Asset Forfeiture, Personal Property Taxes, Bank Foreclosures, the Police shooting people like this is Dodge City all over again; we get the reaming of our lives, every day of our lives and we should know by now; the Filthy Rich, just cannot get enough of our blood or our productivity for themselves and for their children, never enough, always they want more, more, until we have nothing..
    What we have, is all a facade, lies, and promises, to hold us still, to hold us until such time as the executioner can have at us, the Medical Industry, the third, well they admit, the third, leading cause of death in “America.”
    “America” now there is a lie we should have been taught in school, this place is not America, it is THE UNITED STATES COMPANY, 1871, aka The District of Columbia, a Rothschild Corporation, listen, wait, for Tucker Carlson or any other of ‘them’ ie, the rich, to tell you.
    Us citizens are not “We, the people,” we are citizens, we own nothing, we can never own anything, an agreement made way back when, 1606, no citizens can own their home, no citizens child can ever be anything but a citizen. We, can never be father and mother to our own children, ever again. We, are fully caged by the Filthy Rich who conspire against us day and night. When you see pictures, on MSM, in the Magazines, Newspapers, Hollywood, etc., pictures of celebrities, pictures of the Leadership, the Judges, the Professionals, the Suits and the Uniforms, the School Teachers and the Preachers of Religions, you are looking at the enemy and they will always be the enemy, as long as we can live.
    For them to give us anything, they have been educated to believe, it will cost them or their, very special, to them, privileged, children, something, and then they are programmed to think, they will only be required to give more and more until they are just like us -citizens. Oh, my gad, they who are the “people” shudder to think, just like them, like the citizens, oh no, that won’t do, give them nothing and take what little they have, the rich and celebrated declare, and, that is exactly what we have happening to US today. All over the world.
    The soldier with Napoleons army in Russia said: it seemed like there were two Suns and then all of Moscow was in flames. We don’t know, the half, of anything. Natural phenomena, my aching arse, the Annunaki had weapons that could split continents, that could vibrate the Earth so whole nations were consumed in mud floods, mud, ten or more feet deep, whole societies buried, because, the Parasites in the beginning refused to adapt, because the parasites then, refused to be just human, they wanted to be Gods and so they are today, and, us citizens, we are their slaves, their play things, their sacrifices of blood, made to themselves, by the hundreds of millions.
    This terror is so real, so knowable, to deny it is to shut one’s mind off and refuse to see, the truth. What must come, what will come, if not in our life time, as things go steadily downhill, so the Filthy Rich authorize Movies from Hollywood to be made. Movies, wherein terms like Re-Set are used. If not in our life time then most surely in the lifetime of our children. The Filthy Rich have the game in hand they think, they are together as they divide us farther and farther apart, the insanity that prevails over the Citizens is such that it is nearly incomprehensible, it is incomprehensible, it is killing us, it will kill us all, soon.
    We are at war, it really is, that once laughable idea of, the Rich against the Poor, it is that obvious, it is real, and us citizens are losing more and more every day. In a decade or so all the citizens will be disarmed, all the property in a few hands, so all the citizens are renters, the citizens herded into communities that should be called -kill boxes, for that is what they will be, as the Filthy Rich instruct their Scientist Generals to unleash the dooms day weapons, the micro, the macro waves, of death.
    Yes, I have a solution, a solution that will require all of the citizens to stop doing for the People and start doing for themselves. Take over the Electric, the Water, drive the trucks, raise the crops, and change the curriculum in the schools, so it is reflecting of the truth and not lies, lies intending our deaths.
    In short, take back our Earth for ourselves and the animals, the way it was supposed to be, the reason the war began in the first place, as the Annunaki said: this Earth we give to all the creatures alive, to share and to preserve; well, the Parasites wouldn’t have that, they, then, wanted it all for themselves and their children, and, they today want it all for themselves and their children, the only difference is, time. And, us citizens, we are running out of time…

Politicians care deeply about keeping their voters in line, while Trump doesn’t appear to care at all about that.

    It isn’t necessary to drug Trump. He can be swung on the rope of his own self regard like a paper lantern in a breeze. His earliest statements after the inauguration were 180 degrees from “lock her up” and “crooked Hillary”.

    How difficult is it for Americans to visit Cuba these days? I don’t know, and need to research it. I only ask it because I’m wondering who is actually responsible for Castro’s takeover. The funding, the supplies, and the training. The ultimate source, not just the obvious ones.

    I believe JFK had approved planning for the 64′ invasion of Cuba. It’s in the most recent file release. Why would JFK do that? Perhaps JFK and RFK learned the answers to the questions above. If such is the case, perhaps LBJ’s reversal of the invasion plans looks less heroic than advertised. Who was behind LBJ? The money?

    Sandra Serrano, a Kennedy campaign worker and a courageous witness, was bullied by the CIA-connected police interrogator Sergeant Enrique “Hank” Hernandez. She had been sitting outside on a metal fire escape getting some air when the polka dot dress girl, accompanied by a man, ran out and down the stairs, shouting, “We’ve shot him, we’ve shot him.” When Serrano asked whom did they shoot, the girl replied, “We’ve shot Senator Kennedy.” Then she and her companion, both of whom Serrano had earlier seen ascending the stairs with Sirhan, disappeared into the night. A little over an hour after the shooting Serrano was interviewed on live television by NBC’s Sander Vanocur where she recounted this. And there were others who saw and heard this girl say the same thing as she and her companion fled the crime scene. Nevertheless, the LAPD, led by Lieutenant Manuel Pena, also CIA affiliated, who was brought out of retirement to run the investigation dubbed “Special Unit Senator,” worked with Hernandez and others to dismiss the girl as of no consequence.

    Evidently, the goal was to attract attention by all means (“polka dot dress girl”, how much more conspicuous can you get?), which is then suppressed by authorities.

    It’s the same with the “dancing Israelis”, which were all about attracting attention, then getting released quickly and quietly.

    The RFK assassination crowded room scene is best understood as a magic stage show. The (attractive) girl in the polka dot dress attracted a lot of attention as did Sirhan’s gun (several feet from RFK) firing loud blanks.

    Meanwhile an assassin did the deed with kill shots three inches from RFK. (Lisa Pease believes there was another assassin firing as well…)

    The audience’s attention is drawn to Sirhan and the girl in the polka dot dress (depending on where they were).

    This was a well planned and executed assassination by professionals. Lisa believes it was the CIA that did the deed to keep RFK from investigating their involvement in the JFK assassination. Regardless of why JFK was killed (and who actually gave the OK/issued the order), there can be little doubt (especially after Howard Hunt’s deathbed confession to this son) that the CIA was actively involved.

    The media coverup of both events was only possible with CIA (Mockingbird and its successors) participation in both assassinations.

    The weakness of the US charge against Assange is shocking. The allegation he tried (and failed?) to help crack a password during their world-famous reporting has been public for nearly a decade: it is the count Obama’s DOJ refused to charge, saying it endangered journalism.

    The “freedom-est” country is to be blamed for killing the free speech. Manning and Assange exposed the killing of innocent people (collateral damage) and not even one of the exposed are brought to justice.

    As a recovered Evangelical Fundamentalist and summa cum laude and phi beta kappa historian I can tell you this.

The psychopaths are using his book as one of their playbooks and as a way to manipulate ignorant evangelicals to follow them as they lead us off the cliff to nuclear war with Russia and China. The twist is that the good guys like Manning and Assange are getting the authoritarian treatment that “we true believers” were taught to expect. Russiagate was a distraction to prevent us from keeping our eyes on the real culprits—-Netanyahu and his ilk. We are in for the fight of our life!! Psychopaths will do anything to “win”!

    IMHO The greatest harm the CIA did to this country was to get the extremely effective drug LSD banned so they could continue to use it secretly to program political assassins. They accomplished this feat by tying a volunteer who had large eyes and gave him a dose 50 times greater than medically recommended and then filmed him frantically going stark raving mad. Once the film was released to the public there was little resistance to the ban.

    That was most unfortunate for all of us. I believe superior intellect resulting from it’s clinical use would have alerted us sooner to the path of annihilation we were on with the increased use of fossil fuels. Some anthropologists believe the ingesting of psychedelic mushrooms helped advance primitive man’s mental development.

    I learned much from reading two books on the subject: LSD:The Consciousness-Expanding Drug edited by David Solomon and LSD The Problem-Solving Psychedelic by P.G. Stafford and B.H Golightly. Together they established to my satisfaction the effectiveness of the drug which was used clinically to ease or erase a wide variety of human ailments whether they were mental, emotional, psychological, spiritual or physical. These profound changes/cures in the individual were routine. In many cases a single dose achieved the desired result.

    I believe the reason the thousands of professional people worldwide, who knew of it’s superior effectiveness over previously conventional treatments, did not give strong resistance to the ban may have been influenced by the alternative of returning to the proven ineffective path of conventional treatment consisting of long, expensive ongoing medical treatments and therapy over a patients’ lifetime versus one or two sessions at a nickel a dose.

    Space does not permit me to go into detail. There is so much to tell. As one of the authors wrote in 1967: ‘Only the psychedelics offer the hope that man can grow rapidly and fully enough to meet the challenges mounted by his technical accomplishments.’ Thanks to the CIA we will never know how easily we might have been able to avert the ruination of our planet and the likely extinction of the human race.
