Hunter Thompson, Bush, and Jeff Gannon and much more...

by Repost by :>) Thursday, Mar. 03, 2005 at 1:49 PM

If the secrets lie with Thompson, he is no longer able to talk about it. Now, there will have to be some gonzo guerilla journalists to pick up where Thompson left off.

 Hunter Thompson, Bu...

author: Who killed Hunter Thompson?

Reporting the uncomfortable sins of a nation is a responsibility and a very dangerous job. That is why some reporters meet the fate of Thompson, Webb, Hatfield and the countless others. Either they are wiped out in order to shut them up or they just get to a point where they can't put up with the bullshit anymore.


Was it suicide or murder?

Paint the walls and cover it up, no one will ever know the difference.
Fear and Self Loathing In America Reporting The Ugly Sins of The Father
by Clyde Lewis

"Beware of the big green dragon that sits on your Doorstep. He eats little boys!" Bela Lugosi

The recent death of Hunter S. Thompson came as a shock to me and I actually thought it would be a shock to many others. An even bigger shock to me was that the idea that the great gonzo journalist committing suicide didn't seem to surprise anyone. He lived a very hard life and yet it seemed to me that Thompson would want to keep living just so he could have another day to get someone to think or piss someone off.

His death had actually got me to thinking about the reporter in the blogging age and the controversy surrounding Jeff Gannon/Guckert. Gannon you may remember was exposed as slap shot journalist that threw softball questions at the President. John Aravosis, who is a guerilla blogger first exposed Jeff Gannon as a gay prostitute whose real name is James Guckert.

The surprising thing is that the mainstream media wants to downplay this and the left wing is using it as a Lewinski type of scandal to bring down the Bush presidency. The left sees it at sexual hypocrisy. The problem for the left is that the reporting has to be done with kid gloves because of the gay issue, the issue of sex and the issues of sexual promiscuity.

Let's face it: the left doesn't like to beat up on people for having sexual appetites.

This type of story would have journalists like Hunter S. Thompson frothing at the mouth. Thompson would more than likely be a candidate to sink his teeth into this depravity and expose it to its darkest depths.

Liberals and conservatives are busily beating around the bush because many of them are afraid that it might expose the true nature of our leaders and their sexual appetites.

Most liberals do not care if you visit a hooker. Liberals are not at all interested in what goes on in the bedroom. Most liberals didn't care that Bill Clinton was serviced by his intern, and so the issue of presidential sex becomes idle gossip is talked about in circles until some harsh reality sets in and we understand that the sexual conduct of our leaders is far more perverse than we realize.

The big question is how the idea of a gay prostitute in the Bush White House is such a surprise when, in the George Herbert Walker Bush White House, a gay prostitution scandal was revealed.

On the morning of June 29, 1989, the elder Bush's administration was rocked by a scandal when the headlines of the Washington Times splashed "Homosexual Prostitution Probe Ensnares Official of Bush, Reagan, Call Boys Took Midnight Tour of White House."

The New York Times also had the story on its front page.
"A homosexual prostitution ring is under investigation by federal and District authorities and includes among its clients key officials of the Reagan and Bush administrations, military officers, congressional aides and U.S. and foreign businessmen with close ties to Washington's political elite."—New York Times

This was the biggest scandal to rock the elder Bush White House. The strangest thing is that the public probably doesn't remember it, and for good reason. The story received some newspaper coverage, but on TV news there was a blackout on the subject. For this reason, most Americans have never heard of it.

Former Republican Senator John Decamp tried to get the message out by producing a documentary called "Conspiracy of Silence". It was supposed to air May 3rd, 1994 on the Discovery Channel.

This documentary revealed that a network of Washington politicians and religious leaders at Boys Town in Omaha, Nebraska were flying children to Washington D.C. for sex orgies.

Boy prostitutes 15 years old (and younger) were taking midnight tours of the White House.

This was all connected to the Franklin Savings and Loan cover-up scandal.

The Franklin Community Federal Credit Union was raided by federal agencies and shut down. Franklin's manager was Lawrence E. (Larry) King, Jr., was considered a rising star in state and national Republican circles, an officer of the National Black Republican Council. King sang the national anthem at the GOP national conventions in 1984 and 1988.

Nearly $40 million was missing from the coffers of the small, ostensibly community-oriented credit union. The financial scandal turned into something more when children from Omaha and its surroundings said they had been flown from city to city, to be abused at parties held by Franklin's officers and well-known Nebraskans, including nationally prominent Republican Party activists.

One witness Alisha Jahn Owen testified before a grand jury that she was sexually abused as a juvenile by a Nebraska district court judge, by the chief of police of the city of Omaha, by the manager of the Franklin Community Federal Credit Union, and others.

Alisha Owen also witnessed, she said, the abuse of other children by figures in Nebraska's political and financial establishment whom she named, among them the publisher of the state's largest newspaper, the Omaha World-Herald. She testified that she was in a group of Nebraska children who functioned for years as illegal drug couriers, traveling nationwide for some of Nebraska's wealthiest, most powerful and prominent businessmen.

Two grand juries, one local and one federal, had a mandate to consider these and other charges of child abuse connected with the Franklin Credit Union. They indicted the victim-witnesses for perjury instead!

Alisha Owen was pronounced guilty by a jury in Douglas County, Nebraska, on eight counts of felony perjury. On August 8, 1991, she was sentenced to serve nine to twenty-seven years in prison.

Paul Bonacci, whose testimony extensively corroborated Owen's, had proven to the court that he had been badly abused. But the court concluded that his abuse was committed by persons other than those the young people named. Bonacci, too, was indicted for perjury. Two other victim-witnesses, whose stories also backed up those of Owen and Bonacci, recanted under immense pressure. Alisha Owen and Paul Bonacci refused to recant.

Paul Bonacci claimed that he had been abused and tortured since childhood. Bonacci was tortured, beaten and sexually abused until his mind cracked, causing him to develop multiple personality disorder. Tens of thousands of American children have been diagnosed MPD; virtually all of them are thought to have resulted from sexual abuse. There are many who claim that 85 percent of these cases are Satanic ritual abuse.

Paul claims that he was taken by Lawrence King and others to a wooded area in California. Bonacci claimed that in the area there was a large owl.

The book "Franklin Cover-Up" by John De Camp first omitted this testimony because it sounded far-fetched. It was later discovered that Bonacci was describing the area near the Bohemian Grove.

The Bohemian Grove is located in Sonoma County, California, and is the site of an annual two-week gathering of the country's elite. Current participants include George Bush Sr., George W. Bush, and others who make the list of the Who's Who in the United States.

Mother Jones News reported in August of 1981 some of the prominent members that attend also include: "George P. Shultz, Stephen Bechtel, Jr., Gerald R. Ford, Henry Kissinger, William F. Buckley, Jr., Fred L. Hartley, Merv Griffin, Thomas Haywood, Joseph Coors, Edward Teller, Ronald Reagan, A. W. Clausen, Dick Cheney, William French Smith, John E. Swearingten, Casper W. Weinberger, Justin Dart, William E. Simon, and hundreds of other prominent political figures and businessmen.

The activities that go on there are kept secret. Reporters are forbidden to even go there and report on what goes on. That doesn't mean that reporters haven't busted the "party."

Witnesses claim that the participants of the Bohemian Grove romp take part in a mock human sacrifice called the "Cremation of Care." This ritual is held at an altar which stands at the foot at a large stone owl, a representation of the ancient God, Moloch. The Santa Rosa Sun reported in July of 1983 that rituals held in the grove were similar to those performed in the the Cult of Canaan. This ancient cult would worship Moloch and perform sex orgies around these hollow effigies of owls.

The Moloch sacrificial rite has as its victims human beings. According to the Catholic Encyclopedia, the chief feature of Moloch's worship among the ancients seems to have been the sacrifice of children, and the usual expression for describing that sacrifice was "to pass through the fire", a rite carried out after the victims had been put to death.

While at the grove, Paul Bonacci claims that he and another boy were forced to do sex acts with and to consume parts of a child whom they had watched being murdered by men in hooded robes. The body was to be disposed of by "the men with the hoods."

He also claims that a film was made of these events; a man the party had picked up in Las Vegas whom Paul identified as "Hunter Thompson" filmed it.

Paul told investigators that he also was tortured and groomed into becoming a sex slave at Offut Air Force base near Omaha, Nebraska. He claims that he was abducted and taken there by a babysitter's boy friend at 3 years of age.

Paul says that while he was at Offut and other military institutions, he was tortured, heavily drugged, and sexually abused.

He was also instructed in the military arts, including skills in assassination.

On September 5, 1982 Johnny Gosch was delivering the Sunday Morning paper in Iowa, when two men approached him. He was thrown into a vehicle and was kidnapped.

In 1989, Paul Bonacci told John DeCamp that he had participated in the abduction of a Des Moines, Iowa paper boy. This paperboy was Johnny Gosch. Bonacci's testimony provided a great deal of information about Johnny and his case; however, local authorities refused to interview him, because they question his credibility.

According to numerous reports by Paul Bonacci, Michael LaVey (son of Anton LaVey), and Johnny Gosch himself, Johnny was taken by the same porno/pedophile ring to the 80's 'congressional call boy scandal.

The Franklin cover-up.

In February 1999, in Federal Court testimony in Omaha, Nebraska, Noreen Gosch, Johnny's mother, testified that Johnny Gosch came to see her in 1997, providing information about his experience, asking for his mother's help and pleading for her to not reveal his visit.

Johnny was called the chameleon because he was able to change his identity and his looks in order to get into places others couldn't.

This is quite amazing when you consider that James Guckert used the alias Jeff Gannon in order to get near the White House press corp. Could he be Johnny Gosch? This is pure speculation however he has lied about everything since he was caught. Are we seeing someone with a multiple personality disorder?

It is interesting to point out that when Noreen Gosch pleaded with the Des Moines Register to print a letter that was to her son, the editor's name was James Gannon!
"I decided to make an appeal to the Des Moines Register editor... James Gannon, only to make someone aware of things the police were not doing in the investigation. I had made repeated efforts to gain cooperation between the police and our detectives from the beginning of the case. They simply would not. The result of my letter pleading for help was another disaster. Mr. Gannon published it on the front page of the paper and allowed the police to dissect it in print and make crude remarks. The letter was never intended to be used for publicity"-- Noreen Gosch

Jeff Gannon or James Guckert: who is who and which is which?

Guckert/Gannon has also provided information about his stint as a gay male prostitute. Who at the White House is he servicing?

If Gannon or Guckert were Gosch he would be about 35 right now. However Gannon claims that he is in his forties, yet his profile at the gay male4male website had him listed at age 31 in the year 2000.

The whole Gannon/Guckert case has caused a crisis in the White House. Many journalists have avoided the story and even the Drudge Report has kept a lid on letting anything out about what is being called "Gannongate".

Is this surprising?

How can anyone be surprised at this when there have been numerous stories about Project Monarch and the alleged programming of mind controlled slaves for sex?

A brief history behind MK Ultra and Monarch shows that from the Nazis to the CIA there have been brainwashing programs in place since 1947. Monarch programming is also referred to as the "Marionette Syndrome." "Imperial Conditioning" is another term used, while some mental health therapists know it as "Conditioned Stimulus Response Sequences."

Project Monarch could best be described as a form of structured dissociation and occult integration, in order to compartmentalize the mind into multiple personalities within a systematic framework.

The subject leads a double life and is trained to commit either acts of murder or sexual enslavement through the use of emotional triggers. Many of them are trained to carry out their acts and then either turn themselves in or commit suicide.

Some of them commit their acts and then through the use of triggers deny any knowledge of committing any act of harm or manipulation.

There have been many stories generated by what are known as fringe witnesses stating that this type of mind control produced killers like Sirhan Sirhan, John Hinckley, Junior, Timothy McVeigh and many others.

There are also several books that have been written by Cathy O'Brien, Cisco Wheeler, Arizona Wilder and Brice Taylor that name our most revered leaders as sexual predators who use these mind controlled sex slaves as breeding stock and for sexual and violent torture.

The names include John F. Kennedy, Lyndon Johnson, Richard Nixon, Henry Kissinger, Richard Cheney, and George Herbert Walker Bush, who surprisingly has been known to allegedly shape shift into a giant reptile while attacking these so called sex slaves.

In each book it is revealed that all of the respective writers had been abused by their parents and eventually turned over to the government for continual manipulation and drug induced trips that create a multiple personality disorder. Each of the victim's separate personalities is programmed to carry out a certain task.

If we are to believe these women and their stories, we can also look to certain celebrities as being mind controlled slaves as well. They point out that many child stars are singled out as sexual objects and are used as sex toys by the power elite.

This can only stand to reason as we see now that there are children who are sexed up in the media and are used as sex symbols for general public to consume. The Olsen twins were the objects of a countdown where many eager men were awaiting their time of legality so that they can go ahead and admit that they masturbate to pictures of these little girls. Britney Spears was also the apple of America's eye as she became the young sex hottie who erotically posed in Rolling Stone and several other magazines before she was of legal age.

The books also claim that even Michael Jackson was a sex slave and that he has been abused to the point of a Monarch marionette. The books that revealed this information were written long before Jackson was accused of sexual perversion with young boys. The stories all seem to duplicate and the results are now beginning to show themselves.

Many journalists are afraid to walk into that dark shadow of history to start naming names. The difficulty here is trying to determine what is fact and what is fiction. Everything seems to be circumstantially sound; however, this could all be one big coincidence.

We acknowledge this because of the art of disinformation. Are these stories true? Or are they written with the soul purpose of creating hysteria and specifically inciting emotions through manipulative deceptions?

Always remember that effective disinformation is not an absolute lie. The purpose of disinformation is to confuse validity of any story. It is used to mix truth and fiction in order to muddle or blur the story.

Disinformation is never a blatant lie nor is it the total truth. So where do we place our faith? How do we know that our leaders are upstanding citizens worthy of their places in our government?

Truth is, we don't.

This brings us back to Hunter S. Thompson and his view on the matters of government, and all of the ugliness he exposed and witnessed. When the Thompson story first broke his death was first described as suspicious. Then it was reported that his son Juan Thompson found his father's body. There was no mention of anyone in the home.

Thompson's wife, Anita, was not home at the time and at first there was no mention of anyone else there.

Then it was reported that Thompson was on the phone with Anita when he pulled the trigger of his .45 caliber handgun.

Then in some twisted story the family was all there as Thompson shot himself at his typewriter and that it was all planned out ahead of time.
"Hunter S. Thompson died Sunday as he planned: surrounded by his family, at a high point in his life, and with a single, courageous and fatal gunshot wound to the head, his son says."

With all of the things that Thompson knew about and had written about, you would think that his suicide would be great fodder for any conspiracy theorist out there that wanted to expose a possible murder meant to look like a suicide.

I am not attempting to prove that Hunter was murdered. Anyone can commit suicide, especially a man who was falling apart like Thompson. What I am pointing out here is that there is reason for him to have been murdered and then to have a story made up in order to save face.

The question is "Why now?"

There are some rumors that Thompson was even ready to take on the Gannon/ Guckert case, and that he had in fact come across some very controversial witnesses that could blow the lid off of the whole sex and sodomy scandal that is brewing now in the underground. The mainstream media wouldn't dare report that members of the Bush White House, maybe even Bush himself, are self-loathing homosexuals.

Thompson would have reported it all and the reason is because he knew that there were predatory sexual perverts that gathered at Bohemian Grove. He knew about the drug trafficking and blood money that was taken for sex trade and torture.

The guy was only 67 years old when he died, but, sadly, Hunter S. Thompson had a body that was going on 200 years of age. He ravaged it with drugs and drink and acted as if he were invincible. To many, he had a mind of 17-year-old, and that mind just wouldn't quit. To some he was an outlaw journalist; to others he was a gutsy reporter with a knack for telling it like it is.

While this essay is not meant to be a eulogy for him, it must be said that Hunter S. Thompson was a legendary writer. He dealt out the bad words for those who deserved it and he said good things when the moment was right.

It is almost an insult just to leave it at that but it seems that there have been a great many writers and reporters that have somehow found a way to commit suicide after they have tried to speak their truth in a world of liars.

If you look around you can see that there have been many investigative and provocative journalists before him that have allegedly died by their own hand, leaving behind more questions than answers

The last reporter to allegedly kill himself was Gary Webb.

Webb's body was discovered on December 10, 2004 after a moving company worker found a note posted to his front door that read: "Please do not enter. Call 911 and ask for an ambulance." His death was listed as a suicide, but it was first reported that Webb suffered from multiple gunshot wounds to the face.

Webb, like Thompson, decided that getting to the uncomfortable truth of a story was more important than any dreams of career advancement. Guerilla journalists like Thompson and Webb could possibly be considered the world's first "bloggers", and while many bloggers can hide behind their computer screens and hash out both solid information and disinformation, Webb rose to prominence with his 1996 expose in the San Jose Mercury News entitled "Dark Alliance."

"Dark Alliance" was a three-part series that exposed the CIA and its ties with drug traffickers and the Nicaraguan Contras. Webb wrote that they were working together to create, from almost out of nowhere, an explosion of crack cocaine use and trafficking predominantly in black-occupied neighborhoods of South Central Los Angeles in the Reagan-Bush era.

It was an expose on how the Reagan-Bush White House built its own dragon and then become the heroes while attempting to slay its own beast. In the process of doing so, the threat of a police state loomed on the horizon and the drug-induced haze of delirium crept in giving reason to create the psychochondria necessary to breed the ideology of acceptance of certain human rights violations in the United States.

Another journalist that set out to expose the hypocrisy in our government was Jim Hatfield. Hatfield was the journalist who wrote the book "Fortunate Son", an expose on George W. Bush and his frequent use of cocaine. Hatfield, of course, was found dead in a hotel room with the familiar cause of "suicide."

I remember when I asked Sander Hicks, the publisher of "Fortunate Son" and star of the documentary about Hatfield "Horns and Halos", if Hatfield was killed off because of what he said about Bush. Hicks said no.

Now his story has changed.
"The recent untimely death of Senator Paul Wellstone was a disturbingly lucky coincidence for the Bush White House. The sudden death of Clifford Baxter was fortuitous for the fat cats of Enron. The death of Vince Foster helped the Clinton White House. This precedent makes me want to revisit the subject of Hatfield's death. In my grief, I have been personally OK with the official explanation, up until now."—Sander Hicks Soft Skull publishing.

Jim Hatfield was found dead on July 18, 2001 in a hotel room in Springdale, Arkansas. His death was ruled a suicide. Later, a toxicology report showed an overdose of alcohol and anti-depressants. No autopsy was performed, and Hatfield was buried three days later. Officials interviewed in October 2001 by Hicks stated they had no suspicions of foul play since there was "no sign of struggle" at the scene.

Due to his involvement with powerful Texas Republicans and real estate barons in Dallas in the late 80's (the present Bush White House's Clay Johnson and Larry Burk respectively), among other things, Jim Hatfield had a 1,931 page long FBI file. Hicks filed a FOIA request for this file, and after waiting two years and a month, the FBI released 234 of these pages (12% of it) to him on March 12, 2002.

Webb and Hatfield were both trying to inform the people about high crimes in the White House. Their work was, of course, discredited by the mainstream media, and after their apparent suicides, they were labeled as "cranks", "losers" or "cowards" who didn't value their lives.

I find it annoying when reporters go to great pains to assassinate the characters of these reporters just to fulfill an agenda or to hedge their bets upon a supposed story that could later turn out to be something different.

Furthermore I have been hearing the same things about Hunter S. Thompson. I actually heard on a late night talk show someone calling in and asking about thoughts on Hunter S. Thompson being murdered.

Immediately the host of the show said, "I did not know the man, but what I have heard of him, he hated life, and he was very unhappy. Read some of what he has written. It is wonder that he didn't kill himself sooner."

They said the same thing about Marilyn Monroe, Kurt Cobain, and Elliot Smith.

Smith was a tragic singer who had written songs about depression. He suffered from drug and alcohol abuse, and his most famous song was called "Miss Misery". The mainstream press reported that his two stab wounds were self-inflicted. It was then released that Smith allegedly had cut marks on his hands which points to the possibility that he was murdered.

The press, of course, stated that Smith was considered the unhappiest man in the land.

Obviously, this is proof that he committed suicide. This means that you should never tell people about your depressions or even thoughts of suicide because if you are ever killed in a mysterious way you will be dubbed a "depressed whacko."

While I tend to think that Thompson was a great candidate for suicide because he was in pain with bad hips, the doctors that have been quoted in the media make him out to be a poster child for depression. I find this peculiar, much as I found it peculiar that every doctor who had nothing to with the Heaven's gate suicides seemed to paint all of the members of the cult with a broad brush, calling them "lonely" and "isolated' and "easily manipulated."

All trigger words for a bit of disinformation.

The truth is that Hunter S. Thompson had some very harsh words about the Bush administration before he died, and even told the story of meeting a cocaine-crazed "Dubya" in the 1970's.

After the 9/11 attacks Thompson became a prophet in his "Hey Rube" Column when he wrote:
"The towers are gone now, reduced to bloody rubble, along with all hopes for Peace in Our Time, in the United States or any other country. Make no mistake about it: We are At War now -- with somebody -- and we will stay At War with that mysterious Enemy for the rest of our lives.

It will be a Religious War, a sort of Christian Jihad, fueled by religious hatred and led by merciless fanatics on both sides. It will be guerilla warfare on a global scale, with no front lines and no identifiable enemy. This is going to be a very expensive war, and Victory is not guaranteed -- for anyone, and certainly not for anyone as baffled as George W. Bush.

All he knows is that his father started the war a long time ago, and that he, the goofy child-President, has been chosen by Fate and the global Oil industry to finish it Now. He will declare a National Security Emergency and clamp down Hard on Everybody, no matter where they live or why. If the guilty won't hold up their hands and confess, he and the Generals will ferret them out by force."— Hunter S. Thompson From "Hey Rube"

He also warned that if George Bush became the President after the 2004 election the country would fall into a deep mental sickness that would take a long time to cure.
"The 2004 presidential election will be a matter of life or death for the whole nation. We are sick today, and we will be even sicker tomorrow if this wretched half-bright swine of a president gets re-elected in November. Take my word for it."—Hunter S. Thompson

His more recent quotes also put him in league with many other "fifth columnists" that claim that as a country we have accepted murder and torture as a norm.
"In a closed society where everybody's guilty, the only crime is getting caught. In a world of thieves, the only final sin is stupidity. We have become a Nazi monster in the eyes of the whole world - bullies and bastards who would rather kill than live peacefully. We are whores for power and oil with hate and fear in our hearts."—Hunter S. Thompson

In the essay "Civilization and its Discontents," Sigmund Freud defined a neurotic as someone who held opinions that always seem to clash with the prevailing culture. He contended that we were responsible for our own misery. The reason we allow such unhappiness to continue is because we allow ourselves to become programmed.

The culture does not accept those who constantly try to expose its defects and its hypocrisy. Like the individual, it lies to itself and avoids looking at its flaws and blemishes.
"If the development of civilization has such a far-reaching similarity to the development of the individual and if it employs the same methods, may we not be justified in reaching the diagnosis that, under the influence of cultural urges, some civilizations, or some epochs of civilization — possibly the whole of mankind -- have become 'neurotic'? If more is demanded of a man, a revolt will be produced in him or a neurosis, or he will be made unhappy" —Freud

Freud understood the neurosis to be endemic to modern society, a universal condition among civilized nations. If it is not watched and monitored properly, a whole society can become narcissistic, depressed, violent, and it can destroy itself.

There have many people who have tried to get the warning out about the widening gyre of cultural failure in the United States. It is becoming the norm to embrace all kinds of strange behaviors and attitudes that are self-destructive and self-deprecating.

For survival and for fear inadequacy the majority tends to follow the consensus reality and not collective conscience. The truth supposedly sets you free, and many people will use that axiom in reference to liberty and power.

However times have changed and power is the new drug that intoxicates its victims and what is done while under its influence has become a greater nightmare in a culture that has embraced some of the greater evils that can destroy it from within.

The prevailing ideology today is that we are no longer gentle creatures that are meant to trust and love. We are now being groomed into aggressive individuals capable of torturing and killing anyone that we perceive is our enemy. We are being told to do so without provocation.

It is the death instinct that compels us. It is the great joy in the suffering that makes us smile and laugh. We see the police kick in the doors of others and use it as entertainment as long it is not us. It is a constant reminder of the heel of the jackboot stomping on our face forever. It is the cruelty of the master against the slave that gives us our deepest sense of an almost sexual gratification.

This type of fetish has been the cancer that has been allowed to grow because no one wants to admit that they are part of the process of robbing the virtue of everything it comes in contact with.

There have been many journalists who have decided that reporting the truth is far nobler than adhering to this prevailing ideology.

It must make them somewhat neurotic if you decide that Freud's definition applies to the crackpot kooks and conspiracy theorists that become maligned by the mainstream culture these days.

I guess they are good sport now because everyone can find all kinds of dirt on the one who wants justice and truth. No one seems to investigate the skeptic or the critic of a story that goes beyond the confines of the tight fitting culture.

It is a culture with sacred bands so tightly fit that its grip may strangle the very notion of free thought and critical thinking of one's own government.

There are some who have attempted to give themselves a moniker that can be accepted rather than jeered at when the truth is being pushed into the limelight.

It has always been reasonable for reporters and watchdogs to expose bigotry, hypocrisy and the double standards of a society. The job becomes more difficult when programming dictates that you must embrace that double standard, that bigotry or hypocrisy.

The job becomes more dangerous when murder and torture become standards in a society. The job becomes even harder when the corporate media ignores the truth of high crimes in our government for an agenda that is similar to that of the state approved press.

Bill O'Reilly of Fox News recently took a very frightening stand during one of his "Talking Points" memos accusing the left wing or liberal media of demonizing the newly appointed Attorney General Alberto Gonzales.
"Talking Points" realizes most Americans know the Geneva Conventions do not apply to terrorists, and that coerced interrogation is necessary when killers are attacking civilians. But the left-wing media doesn't believe that. And their message is much more effective than their opposition.

The way the left frames it, if you support coerced interrogation -- as Gonzales does -- you support torture. The headline in "The New York Times" op- ed today: "We Are All Torturers Now." Ridiculous? Of course it is. But that's how the left is framing it. And that message has been effectively delivered."—O'Reilly Factor January 7th, 2005

Alberto Gonzales should be considered a war criminal and indicted for war crimes under Title 18 U.S.C. section 1441, the War Crimes Act. While he was counsel to George W. Bush, the President of the United States of America, Gonzales wrote a memo that advocated conduct by United States military forces at Abu Graib prison where many prisoners of war were humiliated and tortured which is in violation of the war crimes act.

The War Crimes Act defines war crimes as grave breaches of the Geneva Conventions, and violations of Article 3 common to the Geneva Conventions.

Section 130 of the Geneva Convention Relative to the Treatment of Prisoners of War (Third Geneva Convention) defines as grave breaches of that Convention: "willful killing, torture or inhuman treatment," and "willfully causing great suffering or serious injury to body or health."

No matter, he is now our attorney general. We have given a monster a place to live and he now has the power to torture and round up anyone that he perceives as an enemy of the state.

In similar fashion, a relic from the Reagan-Bush era, John Negroponte has been appointed the first director of national intelligence in the United States.

From 1971 to 1973, Negroponte was the officer-in charge for Vietnam at the National Security Council under another war criminal, Henry Kissinger. During that period, former DEA member Michael Levine was conducting undercover operations in Saigon, Thailand, and Cambodia, where our government was smuggling heroin into the U.S. It was our government that was using soldiers' caskets and body bags of those "Killed In Action" to smuggle in the heroin.

From 1981-1985, Negroponte was U.S. Ambassador to Honduras, where he illegally assisted the contra war and, most devastating, helped the Reagan administration in conveniently "disappearing" and "suiciding" close to 300 political opponents utilizing the death squads in order to carry out these human rights violations.

He supervised the creation of the El Aguacate air base, which the Contras used as a secret detention and torture center. Negroponte ignored these political killings. He orchestrated the famous death squad Battalion 316, which used shock and suffocation devices in interrogations. Prisoners were often kept naked and when no longer useful, killed and buried in unmarked graves.

I guess you can picture in your mind naked and humiliated prisoners that are sexually tortured, raped and later murdered. We have seen similar pictures of those atrocities committed by our service men and women in Iraq at Abu Graib prison.

We have already heard of the horrible monsters that attack our children in the Catholic Church and we see how it can be swept under the rug and ignored.

We have a pop star on trial for the alleged molesting of young boys at his "Neverland" ranch in California.

Michael Jackson has transformed himself from the king of pop into a white-faced ghoul that is so confused that he feels that it is appropriate to share his bed with young boys. That alone should be evidence to convict him.

If you are wondering if he is a victim of Project Monarch, you may want to consider this bit of irony.

The idea of transformation is an integral part of the Monarch program. At "Neverland" ranch Michael Jackson actually ordered and paid for monarch butterflies to be released into the bushes of his ranch.

Does anybody really think that Jackson will survive his ordeal? If he has to go to prison, how long will he last?

We have heard the testimonies of Brice Taylor, Cathy O'Brien, Cisco Wheeler, and others who claim that they were slaves in Project Monarch. Take a look at Brice Taylor now. She is just a shell of her former self. Whatever speculations anyone has about organized Satanic Child abuse are immediately ridiculed and mocked by the mainstream media.

Laws in the United States are not even consistent when it comes to predatory pedophiles. The cases of abuses by priests in the Catholic Church are evidence that there is an organized effort to control, sexually abuse and torture children in places where they are told they should be safe.

Paul Bonacci's testimony of what he did during the Franklin/Omaha Boys Town scandal is frightening. His stories of sexual perversions and torture at Bohemian Grove under the direction of the power elite makes you wonder about the integrity of those who hold the keys to power in this country.

His testimony is a matter of record.

Was it really Hunter S. Thompson who filmed the killing of a young boy at Bohemian Grove?

Even though you may feel that the stories of all the so-called sex slaves are far fetched. There seems to be an air of dejá vu in all of the stories and a synchronicity of all of the stories unraveling with sexual molestation accusations of a possible Monarch slave.

There is the so-called Guckert /Gannon scandal in which a homosexual prostitute has been seen making the rounds in Washington. It is a ghost that haunts Washington. Is Johnny Gosch really Jeff Gannon or James Guckert? The initials remain the same but the name differs depending on who you speak to.

Will George W. Bush have to atone for the so-called satanic sins of his father?

Will anyone be able to report the story objectively and will it open a can of worms that no one wants to touch? Can it be that Sigmund Freud is right when he says that the things the leaders term as deviant are the very things that they secretly crave?

It has been demonstrated that many people will now support torture, murder and rape if they feel it is in their best interest to do so.

This whole Gannon, Guckert, Gosch, Thompson six degrees of separation game is only here until the proof comes forward and the truth unravels. In the meantime, all we have are the stories of those who have been abused and the circumstantial evidence that something is definitely not right in Washington D.C.

The devil seems to be getting his due.

So far there has not been substantial proof to show that satanic ritual abuse exists. However, there are some that report that these types of activities are the elite's best kept secrets.

If the secrets lie with Thompson, he is no longer able to talk about it. Now, there will have to be some gonzo guerilla journalists to pick up where Thompson left off.

Reporting the uncomfortable sins of a nation is a responsibility and a very dangerous job. That is why some reporters meet the fate of Thompson, Webb, Hatfield and the countless others. Either they are wiped out in order to shut them up or they just get to a point where they can't put up with the bullshit anymore.


Was it suicide or murder?

Paint the walls and cover it up, no one will ever know the difference.
