For some time I’ve been playing with the idea of a book along the line of ‘Anatomy of The American Conspiracy’ or some such. The idea is to show that every one of our government’s best cover ups fit a very predictable pattern of events. I guess the idea is that if all these historical nightmares were simply random and natural evolutions of the nature claimed for them by media and government, there should be no ‘symmetry’ and no identical makeup. One event should not consistently look like another.
But what if there was actually a tried and true ‘formula’ in use by someone somewhere in an a CIA office with a door marked ‘CONSPIRACY COVERUP PLANNING’ (CONCUP)? What impact might that formula, if applied time and time again, have on the actual crimes involved? Would there be some kind of detectable ‘signature’ or pattern that clever observers could spot? You bet!
In such a book, I would take a few of our most famous conspiracies and conduct an autopsy looking for forensic clues that could be said to be similar in each event. From that, working backwards, perhaps, could be deduced the ‘formula’ itself. All of this, of course, being hypothetical, since we all
know that there is no such thing as a conspiracy — as media assures us, describing all who do not accept the official line as ‘conspiracy buffs’ and ‘conspiracy theorists.’ Never do they talk about the hard facts and logical questions raised by those ‘buffs,’ all of which are based on conflicting facts and holes in the stories being fed us. It’s tempting to become a ‘theorist.’
And no wonder, since no Federal Judge has ever found for a conspiracy. Why, even when the Christic Institute sued CIA and others over a long list of crimes uncovered by their exhaustive investigation… crimes which involved money laundering through select banks taken over by CIA for the purpose… the judge decided to throw the case out as frivolous, because there was ‘no evidence of a conspiracy’ beyond a few dozen cartons full of documentation and sworn affidavits. The Judge then slapped a $12M fine on the Institute, which was if someone knew how much money they had access to (as it was just out of reach.) This, of course, bankrupted the Institute and allowed CIA to seize all their assets in countersuit, including the hard earned evidence. Years later, of course, we found out that the judge happened to own a lot of stock in at least one of those banks… but of course, that was not a conspiracy, either. Obviously, it was just a ‘frivolous’ theory.
Well, as it happens, you CAN take almost any handful of conspiracies and dissect them as discussed, and guess what? There does just happen to be a long list of similarities. It also happens that the bulk of these similarities fit perfectly with the 25 Rules of Disinformation. Not exactly theory, the rules are used in college courses on Journalism, Psychology, and Political Science. Some progress is possible.
Taking JFK, Flight 800, and the Oklahoma City Bombing, for instance (others qualify, but these are useful to the newsletter), it can be shown that there are a number of ‘coincidental’ matters. From these clues, I have been so bold as to ‘theorize’ what the CONCUP formula might look like:
This translates as: a successful CoverUp equals (Abundant Clues plus a Patsy) times (Linked Alternatives plus a Fall-Back Position) times the (FOURth estate plus Disinformationalists) times (False Evidence sold as truth minus True Evidence ignored, vanished, or altered) raised to the power of a government controlled investigation.
Some of these ‘variables’ need further definition. The Fourth Estate is a term used to describe Media, especially a controlled media, such as when CIA infiltrated U.S. media with 12,000 operatives to slant news in Operation Mockingbird. Linked alternatives refers to evidentiary trails which tend to lead ‘conspiracy theorists’ down a myriad set of paths which keep crossing each other or running directly one into another (a tangled Web resulting in ‘too many clues’ fabricated for the purpose).
In examining the basis for this deduction, one might be moved, if writing such a book, to cite specific examples. By way of illustration, I’ll offer a few such examples here — but point out each each example could fill a chapter if properly reviewed. Let’s face it. JFK, OKC, and Flight 800 are huge and complex conspiracies, according to ‘theorists.’
All three crimes (yes, Flight 800 was a crime) exhibit more abundant clues than we can shake a stick at. I insist that if given space to make the case, all three have a patsy – which in the case of Flight 800 is the Center Wing Tank. So much for (AC+P). (Disinformation Rule 12: Enigmas Have No Solutions; Rule 15: Fit the facts to alternate conclusions.)
All three have linked alternative paths for investigators to endlessly wander with no seeming apparent successful determinations (at least as far as are allowed to reach the public’s ears via media.) All three have a fall-back position established, a matter which again might take some explanation space. With JFK, it was either the ‘Communists’ (Solidarists, Cubans, or Kremlin, take your pick), a matter which was used to scare the Warren Commission into a desired finding for ‘lone assassin’ to avoid having to answer with a military strike against Russia. In Oklahoma and Flight 800, it would be International Terrorism. So much for (LA+FB.) Disinfo Rule 14: Demand Complete Solutions – Rule 11: Establish Fall Back Positions.
All three have enjoyed the helping hand of both the Fourth Estate and other non-news world Disinformationalists, a matter which hardly needs mentioning or proofs to anyone who has followed the ‘conspiracy theories’ as they developed. (FE+D.) Disinfo Rule 23: Create bigger distractions; Rule 24: Silence critics; Rule 15: Fit the facts to alternate conclusions; Rule 3: Create rumor mongers; Rule 4: Use a straw man.
There are definitely false and conflicting facts galore in all three cases. JFK’s magic bullet and the impossible shooting time/accuracy required. Flight 800’s exploding tank (where is the soot and the bulging, twisted metalwork?) and altered trajectory studies. OKC’s impossible home-made ANFO bomb and impossible mass destruction by that bomb. And all three have ignored true facts. JFK’s grassy knoll, missing brain, and CIA’s sworn courtroom confession by CIA agent Marita Lorenz. Flight 800’s vanished witnesses and missing FDR and CVR data and the silenced forensic investigation. OKC’s multiple bombs found on the third floor and seismic and audio recording evidence of two explosions. So we have our (FF-TF.) Disinfo Rule 20: False evidence; 22: Manufacture a new truth; Rule 13: Alice in Wonderland Logic; Rule 16: Vanish evidence and witnesses.
And government investigations, of course, are exactly the problem when government is the principle suspect being protected. No one in government seems to consider anything in the way of actual facts, ignores all challenges and questions about the claimed facts. JFK used the Warren Commission to white wash everything for us. We had FBI, mostly, and a rigged Grand Jury in OKC, and that’s according to a Juror. In Flight 800, we had US Navy, CIA and FBI, but mostly NTSB to dazzle us with doubtful logic proclaimed as truth. That is our (GI.) Disinfo Rule 8: Invoke authority; Rule 21: Call a Grand Jury, Special Prosecutor, or other empowered investigative body; Rule 1: Hear no evil, see no evil, speak no evil.
Of course, this is not such a book, so I don’t have the time or space to make a compelling case for these arguments. Nor do I have the space to describe the more elegant formula used as catalyst and bonding agents. There is a kind of nested trilogy of trilogies, you see, all having to do with disinformation.
One set is concerted disinfo attack aimed directly at the ‘conspiracy theorists’ through covert infiltration of the actual ‘conspiracy theorist’ group, usually to create a strawman or simply sabotage their progress; then there is disinfo through mainstream media designed to derail conspiracy gains that might catch the public’s imagination; and wild theories (more strawmen) promoted by bogus ‘theorists’ specifically to discredit all such ‘theorists.’ It would take a book to document the examples in JFK, OKC, and 800.
The Second Trilogy lies in evidence used by government, virtually all of which is flawed or tainted in some way by government’s handling — a matter completely intolerable in any normal criminal matter. Example: in Flight 800 FBI’s explosives residue tests were conducted after pressure washing the items; obvious evidence is ignored. Example: in JFK, Marita Lorenz’ testimony to the Church Committee on Assassinations, the FBI, and in court were completely ignored by everyone, including media; legal processes are subverted. Example: in OKC, two unexploded bombs found on the third floor were not presented to Grand Jury or at McVeigh’s trial — which would prove a broader conspiracy and implicate McVeigh as an obvious patsy — one who could not be allowed to die until the greater conspiracy was solved. This is why his death was so important — to cement government’s claims forever in media’s view, which was just why, in reverse, Oswald had to die at any cost, even if requiring the sacrifice of conspirator Ruby.
The third trilogy creates a coordinated disinfo machine consisting of a manipulated ‘Mockingbird’ media literally owned by the military-industrial complex (making it, in my own coined term, the Military-Industrial-Intelligence-Media complex, or MIIM); other-than news media ‘apologists’ (authors and prominent persons) who make cases for government’s arguments and criticize ‘theorists’; and a round of TV and film docudramas and ‘investigative reports’ designed to ‘portray the facts’ which just happen to match those provided by government press conferences and media, ignoring all else. Where this leaves us, of course, is at the doorstep of understanding. Gaining such an understanding may enable us to reexamine the events of our time more carefully.
It is your mind. Use it. Use it or lose it to their lies, a form of mind control.
