("Quid coniuratio est?")
Mario Savio, commonly known as the leader of the 1960s Berkeley "Free Speech" movement, has died recently. Because his death comes before the normal full term of human life, there is suspicion that his death may not have been natural. Is his death a signal, or at least symbolic, of a decision to crack down on free speech?
Then again, "Tiny Tim," a sort of singer, has also died recently. Reading too much into his death could lead to "conclusions" that there is to be a clampdown on all fringe-type persons.
Conspiracy Nation notes the death of both Mario Savio and Tiny Tim with sadness. Each, in their own way, showed American individualism at its best.
CN reader Thomas Malloy (email@example.com) warns that the U.S. government may be planning to impose martial law:
"Last night I attended a very thought provoking lecture sponsored by the Prophecy Club where retired army Chaplin Colonel James Ammerman spoke. The following assertions are all attributable to Colonel Ammerman. There are many closed military reservations in America, Canada and Mexico which are closed to the public. These bases are now the home of large numbers of foreign troops who now outnumber the troops in our military. There are so many German troops in America that they have their own command center which is located across the river from the Pentagon."
Malloy's warning is reminiscent of last year's alarming stories in The Spotlight newspaper regarding Russian military equipment seen on railroad flatcars in the U.S. But this editor's opinion of that situation is that the Russian equipment was most likely secretly purchased by the U.S. on the black market -- hence the need for cover up. I think Spotlight jumped too quickly to conclusions of Russian military infiltration in last year's story. Likewise, there are a lot of characters running around who know that crying "wolf" can get them attention.
Because I get these type of "the sky is falling" type stories fairly often, I generally am skeptical of them. However I could be wrong. If you wish to read Malloy's entire story, try contacting him at his e-mail address given at the start of this item.
In an article in the October 1996 Rumor Mill News ("Rumors and Whispers of Rumors"), the editor writes that President Bill Clinton "is being set up to be taken down." According to RMNews, there are two factions in the intelligence "community": the New World Order (NWO) faction, controlled by George Bush, and the anti-NWO faction. Apparently, Bill Clinton has turned against or displeased the NWO faction of late. "Clinton is not part of a dynasty as is George Bush. Clinton is a throw-away President. He thinks he is powerful, but this false sense of power will be his downfall. His ego has prevented him from understanding the deadliness of the gathering storm."
In Suppressed Truth About The Assassination of Abraham Lincoln by Burke McCarty (New York: Gordon Press, 1974), the author (writing in the 1920s) brings familiar "Popish plot" mutterings together with the Lincoln assassination to yield a Vatican plot behind the assassination. What the book lacks in evidence it makes up for by re-hashing anti-Catholic ideas. The book may be hard to find; I only got a look at it thanks to the helpfulness of the Lincoln Library at the University of Illinois.
Supposedly, the fact that Abe Lincoln, "a barefoot, nameless boy on poverty's path could, by his own efforts [become President]" galled the "'Divine Right' croakers and merited their most unceasing hatred." Thus, says McCarty, "the death of Abraham Lincoln was instigated by the 'Black' pope, the General of the Jesuit Order, camouflaged by the 'White' pope, Pius IX, aided and abetted by other 'Divine Righters' of Europe and their paid agents in this country and French Canada."
In "Clash of the Titans," I touched on this concept of the "Divine Right of Kings" and how it is inimicable to our own American ideas of government. The Pope, as Christ's supposed representative on earth, is an example of this "Divine Right" concept; in fact, the Catholic Church is run in a top-down, fascist manner, with all supposed to give blind obedience to papal "infallibility." Supposedly, european and Catholic "Divine Righters" could not stomach common man Lincoln as a sort of ruler and had him killed.
This editor views the true force behind Lincoln's assassination as either (a) greedy northern businessmen, or (b) the British. (For more on the British connection, see "Clash of the Titans.")
McCarty's book is not without merit, however. Here are some items he gives:
** On July 21, 1773, Pope Clement IV abolished the Society of Jesus (Jesuits) on grounds that it was immoral, dangerous, and a menace to the papacy. For this, says the author, Pope Clement was promptly poisoned. The Society of Jesus was restored by Pope Pius VII in 1814, roughly concurrent to the Congress of Vienna.
** The Congress of Vienna (1814-15) held its sessions in secret. Not made clear is whether the Congress of Verona was subjunct or adjunct to the Congress of Vienna. According to McCarty, the particular business of the Congress of Verona was the ratification of Article Six of the Congress of Vienna, which was a promise to prevent or destroy Popular Governments wherever found.
** "In 1828 an organization in Vienna was formed which was called the 'St. Leopold Foundation.' The plan was then, to operate under the mask of religion, which would insure its safety from any governmental interference and they hoped to accomplish by intrigue and innuendo what could not be done by bullets and bayonets."
** Not checked yet by this editor is an alleged item from the U.S. Congressional Record (House Bill 1523 of 2/15/1913, pages 3215-16) in which a supposed "secret Jesuit oath" charged as "the one taken by the members of the Fourth Degree in the [Catholic] Knights of Columbus" is read into the record. Here are excerpts from the alleged oath:
"...to the utmost of my power, I shall and will defend this doctrine and his Holiness' right and customs against all usurpers of the heretical or Protestant authority... I do now renounce and disown any allegiance as due to any heretical king, prince or state named Protestant or Liberals, or obedience to any of their laws, magistrates or officers."
"...I do further promise and declare, that I will, when opportunity presents, make and wage relentless war, secretly or openly, against all heretics, Protestants and Liberals, as I am directed to do and to extirpate and exterminate them from the face of the whole earth, and that I will spare neither sex, age nor condition, and that I will hang, waste, boil, flay, strangle and bury alive these infamous heretics; rip up the stomachs and wombs of their women and crush their infants' heads against the wall, in order to annihilate forever their execrable race."
"That when the same cannot be done openly, I will secretly use the POISON CUP, THE STRANGULATION CORD, THE STEEL OF THE POINARD, OR THE LEADEN BULLET, REGARDLESS OF THE HONOR, RANK, DIGNITY, OR AUTHORITY OF THE PERSON OR PERSONS WHATSOEVER MAY BE THEIR CONDITION IN LIFE, EITHER PUBLIC OR PRIVATE, AS I AT ANY TIME MAY BE DIRECTED SO TO DO BY ANY AGENT OF THE POPE OR SUPERIOR OF THE BROTHERHOOD OF THE HOLY FAITH OF THE SOCIETY OF JESUS."
Supposedly, the Catholic hierarchy was behind various anti-Lincoln items appearing in newspapers late into the American Civil War. Because many Catholics were slavish to the decrees of their religion, inferred is that these anti-Lincoln items of Catholic origin were basically "orders to kill."
Yet beyond circumstantial material, McCarty's book lacks hard evidence -- such as can be found, for example, in Vaughan Shelton's book covering suspicious facts of the Lincoln assassination, Mask for Treason.
McCarty also alleges that the "Jesuit Oath" killed... ** William Henry Harrison, "by the poison cup," 4/4/1841; ** Zachary Taylor, "by the poison cup," 7/5/1850; ** Garfield, "by the leaden bullet," 7/2/1881; ** William McKinley, "by the leaden bullet," 9/6/1901.
