JonBenét Ramsey & The Air In Colorado
James R. Gaines, former managing editor, Time Magazine, January 20, 1997 issue
December 25, 1996 seems, in retrospect, a perfect day for a ritual occult slaying. Among the scholars who believe that Jesus was a real figure, the year of his birth is most commonly believed as being in 4 B.C., making the date the 2,000th Xmas celebration since his coming. And indeed there were celebrations on 4 B.C.: the holiday is older than the Christian myth. To quote Acharya S.:
Many of the world's crucified godmen have their traditional birthday on December 25th. This is because the ancients recognized that (from an earthcentric perspective) the sun makes an annual descent southward until December 21st or 22nd, the winter solstice, when it stops moving southerly for three days and then starts to move northward again. During this time, the ancients declared that "God's sun" had "died" for three days and was "born again" on December 25th. The ancients realized quite abundantly that they needed the sun to return every day and that they would be in big trouble if the sun continued to move southward and did not stop and reverse its direction. Thus, these many different cultures celebrated the "sun of God's" birthday on December 25th.
What we have in Yuletide, then, is a resurrection myth celebration, a day of recognizing a moment of a new age. We still see this myth in an updated form in the modern "Baby New Year" mythology, who comes on January 1, which was day seven of the Feast of Fools - and now curiously of Kwanzaa, the African-American holiday.
(Incidentally, among the religious cults which celebrated such a holy day was the Mithra sun god cult that Roman Emperor Constantine was part of. Along with holding December 25th sacred, Sunday - the day of the sun - was their holy day of the week. Coincidentally, at around the time of Constantine's reign, the Christian cult leaders made December 25th the celebration of Jesus' birthday and Sunday their Sabbath. Although this was considered an act of blasphemy by other Judaic cults, Constantine issued the Edict of Milan soon after, officially granting tolerance of Christianity in the Roman Empire.)
And so, the morning after this metaphorically significant day, a phone call was placed in Boulder, Colorado at 5:52 A.M. The receiver of the call was a 911 dispatcher for the Boulder Police Department. The sender of the call was an ex-beauty queen named Patsy Ramsey. The message? "Send help. Send help."
Help was indeed sent. As Officer Richard French arrived less than seven minutes later, Patsy was in hysterics. She showed Officer French a three page handwritten note. As she wept, her husband John appeared cool and collected, although he appeared to pace quite a bit.
The note began simply enough: "Mr. Ramsey," it stated. "Listen carefully! We are a group of individuals that represent a small foreign faction. We respect your business but not the country that it serves. At this time we have your daughter in our possession."
Written in block letters with a black felt-tip pen, the note had some major oddities. The author knew of John's business activities and a recent huge bonus he had received. The amount demanded for ransom was $118,000, the identical amount to his bonus. The money, the note said, was to be in $100,000 in $100 bills and the rest in $20 bills, placed in "an adequate size attaché case" (the note had an accent mark on the e for attaché, just as there is on the second e of JonBenét.) The note had details of Mr. Ramsey's career in the Navy, describing a year he spent in the Philippines at Subic Bay, called in the note the SBTC, as though the writer referred to the place often by those initials. It also had phrases such as "The delivery will be exhausting," "Any deviation of my instructions will result in the immediate execution of your daughter," and "we are familiar with law enforcement countermeasures and tactics," the kind of jargon popular in military memos. Finally, the note referred to him as "John" 3 times in the last paragraph, but only as Mr. Ramsey in the formal opening. Based on this evidence, it was clear that the writer of the note was a sophisticated person with a military background and intimate knowledge of John Ramsey's life.
Seven hours later, JonBenét, their lovely six-year-old daughter and a regular child-beauty pageant champion, was found, dead. Her body was sprawled on the cement floor of a windowless little room in the basement. Dressed in a white knit shirt and long underwear, there was duct tape over her mouth and a garrote made from a white cord around her throat. Another cord was around her right wrist. The body was covered with a white blanket, and her red pageant nightgown was laid beside her. She had a red-ink drawing of a heart on her left palm.
John Ramsey had found the body himself, after his wife had said, "I want you to search this house. From top to bottom." He immediately bolted to the basement, stopping at a small broken window on the north side of the house, which caused Fleet White, Mr. Ramsey's best friend, to notice the anomaly. Of course, only a midget or child could fit through the window, not likely candidates as big time kidnappers. There were a lot of rooms and corridors in the basement, but John went directly to the one where JonBenét was found.
He immediately yanked the tape from her mouth and carried her upstairs, laying her on the upstairs living room floor. As a Vanity Fair source reports, "What was interesting was when Ramsey brought the body upstairs he never cried. But when he laid her down, he started to moan, while peering around to see who was looking at him." Patsy then collapsed on top of JonBenét and began praying to Jesus. The net affect of their actions was to hinder the investigation by messing up the crime scene.
Despite the lack of the crime scene, one thing is immediately apparent: the "kidnapping" story is thoroughly implausible. Kidnappers don't make a habit of killing their ransoms, and if they do, they certainly don't leave the booty behind. Even if JonBenét was murdered in an accident, they would've dragged her corpse along and continued their extortion ploy. Furthermore, there was no sign of a forced entry, no footprints in the melting snow around the house, and, though the Ramsey's would later insist they didn't set their alarm system at night, there was no way for the "kidnappers" to know that.
Further facts began to be revealed: a "practice" ransom note was discovered, on the same legal paper as the final note. A practice note would not be carried to the premises, so that means both notes were written there, meaning that the "kidnapping" tale was a last-minute created fantasy, likely to cover up an "accidental" slaying.
As Vanity Fair reported, the autopsy revealed more, with phrases like "chronic inflammation" and "epithelial erosion" among the highlights of the redacted report. Dr. Richard Krugman, a child abuse specialist, noted a vaginal abrasion which "is a sign of trauma, [but] it's not a sign of sexual abuse necessarily." Dr. Robert Kirschner of the University of Chicago's pathology department went even further, pointing out that her vaginal opening was twice the normal size for six-year-olds. He stated, "The genital injuries indicate penetration, but probably not by a penis, and are evidence of molestation that night as well as previous molestation."
There was also blood and urine stains on JonBenét's underpants, a cleaned-up crime scene and body, and evidence that the child had been "re-dressed" after the murders, with the cords around her neck and wrist loose as though it was staged.
Right now, it may be a good time to stand back and state what is rather apparent: either the Ramsey's were the killers or assistants in the murder, or they have been the victims of some rather hi-tech silent midgets with no footprints.
Dr. Cyril Wecht, the forensic pathologist better known for his criticism of the JFK autopsy, has no doubt about molestation or who the guilty party is. "This to me is evidence of sexual abuse," he said in a newspaper interview. "I think any forensic gynecologist and forensic pathologist would agree with that." He would also state, point blank, "If she had been taken to a hospital emergency room, and doctors had seen the genital evidence, her father would have been arrested."
Of course, whenever someone has pointed any finger of guilt in this case, the "legitimate" arm of the korporate media has long condemned it as a "rush to judgement", as though the Cliff Notes evidence just detailed isn't compelling enough. Instead, the korporate press has long bent over backwards in this case. Newsweek would report early on that Ramseys' experts concluded neither John nor Patty wrote the notes, as though the Ramsey experts were not biased. (In fact, an investigator of the ransom note testing states, "Out of the 74 names submitted for testing, Patsy's handwriting was the only one that set off alarm bells," and handwriting analyst Sheila Lowe has found the note and Mr. Ramsey's known writing "very similar".) Newsweek's cover story report on the subject in January 1997 not once suggested that the Ramseys were involved (though such beliefs were already circulating), and took the whole case as a "mystery" and presenting the kidnapping tale as plausible. If any blame was placed on the parents, it involved their usage of JonBenét in beauty pageants, a predictably pious condemnation while they tried to find some sort of "meaning" behind the Boulder slaying, thus allowing them to discuss the subject while avoiding the facts. If only there was such "fairness" in the reporting of Timothy McVeigh or the alleged Unabomber.
Compare this also to the treatment of Louise Woodward, the British au pair who was tried (and found guilty) on murder charges of nine-month old Matthew Eappen. The official story is that Woodward must be the guilty party, as she was with Matthew when he died, but the evidence was indicative that the killing injury could have happened days before the death. Presumably, if Woodward is the only one who could have caused the injury, that would mean that Matthew's parents were incredibly cold and remote to their own child. Despite these facts, the state wasted little time declaring the 19 year-old girl a killer rather than investigating the Eappens (who, incidentally, were fairly wealthy), and the pundits predictably followed suit. Shrill right-wing ideologue and Dick Riordan suckup Jill Stewart (writing for the allegedly progressive L. A. New Times) declared Woodward a baby murderer before the trial had been finished, and Ellen Goodman stated as fact that Woodward "is still a killer who acted in anger as well as frustration." With all this hysteria surrounding the Au Pair Trial, you can't help but wonder if maybe it was an attempt to distract us from the more blatant and disturbing facts swirling from Boulder.
Eventually, though, even much of the mainstream press has cracked in the JonBenét tale, as the previously mentioned October 1997 Vanity Fair article seems little doubt whom the author finds the guilty party. And naturally, in their attempts to atone for their dishonest coverage, the reports always predictably bring up the specter of O. J. Simpson. But in fact, besides involving murder, sex, and wealthy men, the Simpson and Ramsey cases widely differ. There has been no demonization of John Ramsey as an icon of evil, no usage of his name as a code word to incite anger in masses. There has been no Dominick Dunne to feign their moral outrage about the incredible injustice to civilization involved in the JonBenét death.
Within 24 hours of the Brentwood slayings, there was an onrush of media declaration that Simpson was guilty. Even now, the Ramsey's are given the benefit of the doubt in their search for "the real killers." In the middle of October, the Associated Press began reporting as legitimate the possibility of another "suspect" in the Boulder case, a 54 year-old man who lived six blocks away. The reason for suspecting him? 32 years before, he was convicted of misdemeanor indecent exposure (mooning someone would qualify as that), a conviction that earned him the label of "a child abuser" in the AP report. Meanwhile, serial killer Glen Rogers was working within blocks of the Nicole Brown Simpson's condo at the time of the slayings, and has been known to brag about his involvement in the murders, providing such juicy details as the color underwear she wore (according to Rogers, it was yellow.) The LAPD hasn't investigated it, insisting that Rogers has an airtight alibi.
Perhaps there is a better case to link to the JonBenét case: the sad story of Susan Smith and her two children. At first, Mrs. Smith proclaimed she was a victim of a vicious carjacking who kidnapped her two children, and described in gory detail a suspect that was little more than a crude caricature of a 70's black jive-talkin' sitcom character. The story sounded utterly outlandish, and yet, soon afterward, there was a frenzy to find the suspect, with the usual civil rights violations of minorities. Eventually, Susan broke, and confessed to murdering her children herself, and it soon was revealed that she was a victim of molestation by her father, a born-again fundamentalist "Christian". Susan Smith was given life in prison, although if her non-existent monstrous black carjacker had ever been captured, he certainly would've been given the death sentence and demonized as a far worse icon of evil than Susan ever was for slaying her own children. Susan's father, despite admitting to his crimes, was mysteriously never charged for his own activities.
The JonBenét Ramsey (and Susan Smith) case reveals a pattern of trivialization of child molestation evidence. This is not some modern phenomenon concocted in the 20th century, but rather, a secret that has a dark, ugly history. Freud came face to face with it, when he abandoned his own seduction theory (his belief that most of the psychological problems his upper-class female patients had were due to molestation by their fathers) when it was viciously attacked, due mainly to the nasty implications of it. But even today, it is at the center of many stories that often grab headlines. Most of the focus in Woody Allen and Mia Farrow's divorce case has been on his romance with Soon-yi Previn, Mia's adopted step-daughter. The korporate media is more often than not silent of the more disturbing charge, that he molested Dylan, their adopted seven-year-old daughter. Whenever such charges are briefly mentioned in korporate pieces, it is quickly added that "the charges are unsubstantiated." What they fail to mention is that Connecticut state authorities, based on the testimony of Dylan and others, have stated that they do believe Woody did molest her, but decided not prosecute anyway, under the excuse of "wanting to spare the children further suffering." Woody's film career has continued without pause. Then there is the case of the Menendez brothers, who, after admitting to murdering their parents, painfully revealed that they were ruthlessly abused and molested by them over the years, and the twin emotions of fear and revenge drove their slayings. Rather than investigating the Menendez claims, they too were viciously demonized for trying to escape the murder charges and accused of making up their abuse. (Leading the charge, unsurprisingly, was our good friend from Vanity Fair Dominick Dunne.) And of course, there is the wild tale of Wacko Jacko, which, even though the accusations against him are widely believed to be true, are merely passed off with a laugh among other smirking monologue jokes on Jay Leno. The King of Pop was last seen fondling "his" baby on the cover of Life magazine, and the accompanying story forgot to mention the serious charges against him.
(Curiously, the one case where child molestation has been magnified rather than minimized in the mass media is the charges against David Koresh, charges which somehow are to justify the mass murder that followed in Waco.)
And so, perhaps JonBenét's death has been relegated to the tabloids for any real investigation because it is so tawdry and so doomed to wallow in sensationalism due to the dirty laundry it uncovers. Perhaps. But perhaps the dirty laundry goes much deeper, and it is these darker truths which are intentionally being submerged in the Ramsey case.
"There is a killer on the loose! I don't know who it is, I don't know if it's a he or a she, but if I were a resident of Boulder, I would tell my friends to keep... to keep your babies close to you. There's someone out there."
Patsy Ramsey on CNN
In all the trees that have been slaughtered covering the JonBenét story, precious little has been written about John Ramsey's business dealings, besides that he's rather successful. If it is mentioned, it usually is inserted as an afterthought, briefly brought up and then almost immediately discarded as unimportant. If Mr. Ramsey is considered to be a murder suspect, however, what he is and what he is involved in should remain central to the investigation.
Who is John Ramsey? A former Navy officer, he moved to Atlanta in the early seventies. John combined his knowledge of electronics engineering and marketing to form a computer firm, Advanced Products Group. The firm would merge with two other firms in 1988 to form Access Graphics, and he and Patsy moved to the new headquarters in Colorado. The company would later have a major change of fortune: it was bought up by Lockheed Martin, and soon became a company with one billion dollars a year in sales.
Lockheed Martin is the "new and improved" version of Lockheed after buying up Martin Marietta, combining two of what were among the nation's (and world's) biggest defense contractors. Lockheed in the 70's, as described by Jonathan Vankin in The Big Book of Scandal, was a "a company that sold billions of dollars in weapons every year, while covertly functioning as one of the world's largest organized crime syndicates." As Tom Jones (chair of smaller rival Northrop Corp, not the Las Vegas lounge singer) admitted, "Sure, we bribed people. We were just following Lockheed's business model." Lockheed chairman Dan Haughton replied, "We prefer to call them 'kickbacks'."
Among the fine agents (or, in Lockheed's code, "locust") for Lockheed was their Middle Eastern representative, Syrian arms merchant and CIA asset Adnan Khashoggi, chum of Ollie North, major player in the Iran-Contra scandal, and cousin of Dodi Fayed, soon-to-be husband of Lady Diana before their little "car accident". Officially, Khashoggi earned $106 million in Lockheed "commissions" for his work, though knowing the arms business, that may be an understatement.
Lockheed's locust for Japan was Yoshio Kodama, a right-wing nationalist with strong ties to the Yakuza. Rather than being tried for war-crimes, the CIA got him off - and back into the corridor's of power.
Allegedly, Khashoggi funneled $1 million of his funds into Trickie Dick's re-election campaign. (As for Lockheed, officially, they were the only major corporation not shaken down for cash by Nixon's CREEP committee.) On September 1, 1972, Nixon met in private with Japan's Prime Minister, Kakuei Tanaka. Three days later, Japan began buying $1 billion in anti-submarine planes, and soon after All-Nippon Airways ordered $400 million in Lockheed Tristar Passenger Jets. Kodama began receiving crates of yen.
In the mid-70's, a congressional committee led by Frank Church began investigating Lockheed's shady practices. When the committee subpoenaed Lockheed Treasurer Robert Waters, he "committed suicide". Kodama, meanwhile, suffered a stroke, and while bedridden, ultra-nationalist Mitsuyasu Maeno commandeered a plane and crashed kamikaze style in his home. Maeno's motivation was alleged outrage that his hero had shamed the nation. (No word if Maeno was clutching Catcher in the Rye.)
Despite even admittance of criminal activity, Lockheed walked. And walked profitably, winning the Stealth Fighter contract, the most expensive plane at the time, in the 80's. And yet, despite evading any punishment for their blatant crimes, we are supposed to chalk this up as history, that Lockheed, shamed by their illegal activities, stopped them all by their lonesome selves.
Uh huh. Sure.
Bribery has a not-too-distant cousin, blackmail. And where you see one, you almost always see the other. As Number Two would say to the Prisoner, "By hook or by crook." Carrots work great, but sometimes sticks work even better.
The "carrot and stick" strategy was used in Operation Gladio, a successful attempt by the CIA to control politics in Italy, an operation that soon covered all European nations. Supposedly fearing governmental takeovers by communists or socialists, the CIA began backing and controlling candidates that it deemed preferable, fascists who often were Nazi collaborators and drug-dealers. The CIA pumped funds in campaigns for their personal picks, and financed propaganda units posing as objective news reporters. (Among the "journalists" involved in this scheme include Walter Pincus, writer of the Washington Post's Gary Webb hit piece, and future Ms. Magazine editor Gloria Steinem.) Using the bait of sex and drugs, they would lure politicians in compromising positions as well, having them in their pocket for life or be destroyed by scandal.
Just how low did Gladio blackmail go? A recent sex scandal in Belgium gives a clue. In the summer of '96, Belgian police arrested Marc Dutroux, who was accused of kidnapping young girls, sexually abusing them, and killing them. Two teenage girls were found chained and starving in his basement, and there were dead bodies on his property. All quite Silence of the Lambs stuff, but it soon was revealed that the police had long suspected Dutroux was a pedophile killer. They had let him be. Dutroux, meanwhile, a working stiff on welfare, became wealthy.
Though Belgian officials have done their best to hinder the investigation, the reason Dutroux got away with it for so long was that he and his friends were using the girls for sex parties involving the elite in business, military, and politics. A judge who attempted to get to the bottom of the matter was soon dismissed by his superiors in the Ministry of Justice.
To think that Dutroux masterminded this blackmail operation all by his lone nut self would be utterly absurd. To suggest that it was a modern manifestation of Gladio at work would be quite logical. In any case, even Time Magazine, in one of the rare mentions they've had on this apparently unimportant scandal, described shadowy links from this operation to mobsters, and mentioned the usage of "underground tunnels."
Ah, yes, underground tunnels. The same kind of tunnels described by the kids at McMartin preschool, who also claimed they were the victims of Satanic ritual abuse, claims which were utterly mocked in the mass media. In fact, they still are mocked in the mass media - despite the evidence to the contrary, including wide-spread sexually transmitted diseases among the kids. People Magazine is not particularly noted for its investigative journalism, yet had a reporter "investigate" the McMartin pre-school story. After interviewing Dr. E. Gary Stickel, the UCLA archaeologist commissioned to excavate the McMartin site, the reporter wrote back to headquarters that no tunnels had been uncovered. When Dr. Stickel heard this, he was surprised, as he told the reporter the exact opposite, which his 185 page Report of the Archaeological Excavation of the McMartin Preschool Site duly notes. "I told her the children said there were tunnels and we found tunnels. It was as simple as that." After alerting People of the apparent failure to communicate, People began researching his evidence - and then the story was bumped. People, incidentally, is owned by the Time Warner, the people that bring us both Time and Life magazine.
Why the cover-up in McMartin? As reported by Alex Constantine and Ted Gunderson, among others, McMartin was a front for CIA brainwashing of children. (The elder McMartin, who was involved in the building of the preschool in 1966 - when the tunnels were built as well - worked for noted CIA front Hughes Aircraft.) It is hardly a solitary case: the usage of children in brainwashing experiments (often using Satanism and pedophilia) is a well documented phenomenon.
Among the other noted cases besides McMartin:
* Franklin, Nebraska. A well-connected black right-wing businessman named Larry King - not the talk show host - sang the national anthem at the GOP convention in 1984 and 1988. He also headed the crooked Franklin Credit Union, which was closed after it was uncovered King had swindled $39 million. Investigation soon found the predictable links to CIA-Mafia cocaine money laundering... and then began uncovering that King was the head of a Satanic pedophilia ring, which led to high powered politicians in our nation's capital. Soon after, the investigation was sandbagged. A documentary uncovering the scandal, Conspiracy of Silence, was set to appear on The Discovery Channel on May 3, 1994, but was pulled from the air the last minute, despite having been cleared by channel lawyers. They have shelved it ever since.
* The Presidio Army Base in San Francisco. A huge sexual abuse scandal first broke out in the early eighties at the Orwellian named Presidio Child Development Center. At the center of the day care center scandal was Lieutenant Colonel Michael Aquino, head of the Satanic Cult Temple of Set. He was also an army intelligence expert in psychological warfare with a top secret clearance. Despite the children giving a bulls-eye description of Aquino's bedroom, Aquino was never charged with any crime, and the children's abuse was dismissed as another hysteria.
* The Finders. Though not as well-known, the Finders is nonetheless an astounding case. Six seriously abused children were found in Tallahassee, Florida with two members of the cult. A raid of a Finders' warehouse in Washington, D.C. found loads of graphic child pornography. Investigators checked with the State Department on a passport that was found, and were told to "terminate further investigation".
They soon discovered that the Finders was a CIA front that supposedly had "gone bad", and that the leader of the cult, Marion David Petite, had a wife who was a "former" CIA agent and a son who worked for Air America. The case against the Finders was quickly dropped.
Perhaps the most shocking claims are made by Cathy O'Brien, who writes about her own alleged Satanic abuse as a CIA sex slave from early childhood in her book Trance Formation In Amerika. Her husband, a "former" CIA agent named Mark Phillips, rescued her and has since supposedly helped her recover her memories. There are many who believe he is little help to her. Many of her memories and claims have been provably false, and yet there are many claims that have been repeated elsewhere by others independently. Among her more interesting (and many state more verified) report are that George Bush molested her and her daughter while strung out on heroin (curiously, Mr. Bush was a regular at many of Larry King's parties in Franklin), and that she was gang-banged by the Bennett Brothers, William (finger-wagging Book of Virtues writer and former commander of our phony drug war) and Robert (current White House counsel to Bill Klinton in his tame by comparison Peckergate scandals involving Paula Jones and Monica Lewinsky.) Cathy O'Brien claims she was drawn into this web of horror at early childhood, recruited because of her fresh good looks and her family connections in the occult underworld. The name of the program she was involved in is claimed to be called Monarch.
In retrospect, the Monarch operation may go even deeper than anyone has alleged. Scratch the surface of many juicy tabloid tales, and they seem to flow from the same CIA-Mafia-Satanic well that no korporate journalist dares to drink from. The richer victims in the Manson slayings were reputed (by sources of Ultimate Evil author Maury Terry) to have been involved in trafficking kiddie porn as well as LSD. Michael Jackson has strong ties to the Mafia, which is said to be behind his infatuation with Italians. The Menendez parents also have been linked to Mafia, which may explain the not-so-irrational fear of their sons. (Oddly, Mr. Moral Outrage Dominick Dunne, who has apparently patterned himself after Truman Capote and comes from a wealthy Eastern establishment family, never found time or interest to cover the Jacko case or the McMartin Trial, and apparently is entirely uninterested in the Ramsey affair. One of his daughters was murdered by her boyfriend, who then received a stunningly light sentence, and one of his sons was "kidnapped" during the Simpson trial which required him to temporarily leave the trial, a story that never has been fully explained.)
But of course, the korporate media has conveniently ignored the possibilities in these cases, often going out of the way to denounce the more blatantly disturbing ones. There is, for the example, the Remembering Satan story, which Lawrence Wright wrote in 1993 for the New Yorker. Despite a confession from a Washington state county sherriff and Republican Party leader, Paul Ingram, of being involved in Satanic ritual abuse of his daughter and others, Wright presented the theory of the False Memory Syndrome Foundation (a "foundation" loaded with CIA agents) that the stories were imagined fantasies of guilt, supposedly brought on by his being a deeply fundamentalist Christian. Certainly it couldn't be that his "Christianity" was a cover for the same things done by high-ranking Republicans in Franklin. (Interestingly, Susan Smith's father also was a high-ranking GOP man and a self-proclaimed "born-again Christian", perhaps explaining why he was never charged for his admitted crimes - and which suggests there's even more to that case.)
In the end, all these tales prove one thing: that the place to find the truth is in Hollywood fantasy. After all, wasn't it Raymond Shaw's mother in The Manchurian Candidate who, kissing his lips passionately, reveals herself to be not just his kontrol agent but secret lover? In the master Jack Nicholson vehicle Chinatown, wasn't the big plot twist that the big and powerful running Los Angeles were involved in molesting their own kids? (The director of the movie, Roman Polanski, was incidentally also the director of Rosemary's Baby and the father of Manson victim Sharon Tate's never-born child.) Wasn't the movie Angel Heart about the lords of Louisiana being dedicated to multi-generational Satanism? And, when it was finally uncovered who killed Laura Palmer in Twin Peaks, didn't it turn out to be her father, who appeared to be "possessed" by demons, thus indicating that in his bizarre tale of strange happenings, David Lynch was really exposing the bleak machinations behind black magick occultism hidden in Middle Amerika?
All of which leads us full circle back to Colorado and Jon-Benét. The Ramseys certainly fit the same bill. Which is perhaps why one investigator of this stuff put it to me, "Cathy O'Brien is a Jon-Benét Ramsey that lived."
To label John Ramsey and Access Graphics as a stick in CIA stick and carrot affairs may seem a outrageous allegation. And perhaps it would be irresponsible journalism. Almost as irresponsible as noting that Mr. Ramsey, a well-connected military fellow, resided in Atlanta when a string of over 30 child murders happened in the black community between 1979 and 1981. There are urban legends that the FBI and CIA were actually behind them, that the young bodies were used for some bizarre experiments. (It is interesting to note that the Center for Disease Control has it's headquarters in Atlanta, and that these murders struck in the early days of the AIDS epidemic which has targeted blacks and homosexuals. Preceding the epidemic, homosexuals were recruited into "experimental hepatitis-B vaccination programs" run by the CDC in ads specifically targeting them.) Other tales say it was members of white upper crust families getting their rocks off. The Feds would later pin the blame on Wayne Williams, a black male, over dubious fiber evidence that they proclaimed proved he was the lone madman killer. Even by official claims, however, he was only behind up to 23 of the slayings, leaving over a half-dozen officially unsolved, but beings these were minority children, it was swept away with the "Case Closed" pronouncement.
I suppose it would also be irresponsible to note that Patsy Ramsey was born and raised in Parkersburg, West Virginia, a city better known for the Federal Bureau of Public Debt Building, a project located there at the heavy insistence of West Virginia's longtime Senator (and longtime Appropriations Chairman) Robert Byrd. Byrd, it should be noted, is fingered by Cathy O'Brien as one of her main oppressors. He has also been alleged (by an article in a fundamentalist Christian magazine) to be one of the main people behind the formation of Michael Aquino's Temple of Set. Do two rumors equal a truth? No, but in any case, Senator Byrd is a "former" member of the KKK.
Adding to the irresponsibility, it turns out Patsy Ramsey's father, Don Paugh, was an engineer for Union Carbide, the fine folks who brought us korporate murder in Bhopal and whose former mining camp in Guyana provided the spot for Jim Jones little Utopian community. Early on, Don was asked to help out John Ramsey's then struggling business, and became vice president in charge of operations. According to Jeff Merrick, a former John Ramsey associate, "The word is that John was going broke and Don bailed him out financially." How he did that on his middle-class income is questionable. The Paughs may have instead used their impressive connections via the Miss America Pageant circuit, which both Patsy and her younger sister Pam had been contestants in after both being crowned Miss West Virginia. Due to her programmed, controlled manner, famed-sportswriter and 1977 Miss America judge Frank Deford wrote in his notes that Patsy was "a little automoton." JonBenét was particularly noticed for her ability to freeze all motion and hold a pose, an incredible feat considering she was only six years old.
A "little automoton" in training?
Like mother, like daughter.
Yes, all this is irresponsible perhaps, but very illuminating. And perhaps as illuminating as an alleged claim in the Star that a large amount of kiddie porn had been downloaded on Access Graphics computers. The article also noted that AG did a lot of work in Amsterdam's red light district. Of course, in the tale of JonBenét, the tabloids have been the lone korporate media sources to proclaim shamelessly that the Ramseys are indeed the culprits. However, this report in particular is a blockbuster, as it hints at JonBenét being only part of a pattern. While the Star seemed to point the finger solely at Mr. Ramsey, the fact remains Access Graphics is part of Lockheed Martin, and thus any child pornography on their computers indicates a major scandal.
As pointed out in Grossed-Out Surgeon Vomits Inside Patient! An Insider's Look At Supermarket Tabloids, by Jim Hogshire, a study by Deborah Gruenfeld revealed that headlines tend to influence people's beliefs to a degree which makes the articles nearly worthless in value. Further, tabloids only trail marginally behind mainstream journalism in terms of believability (which, considering the equally disgusting level of deceit in both, is quite understandable.) Thus, the best way to influence public opinion is not through well-reasoned and well-written articles, but by having headlines with sensational - and thus attention-getting - claims shoved in the face of the most number of people. Like, say, at the checkout counter of a supermarket.
The founder of the model for supermarket tabloid publishing was a man named Generoso Pope. In 1951, as Mr. Pope would readily admit in his own "Who's Who" Biography, he worked for the CIA in their psychological warfare division. In 1952, he bought the Hearst-owned New York Enquirer (he changed the name to The National Enquirer) and started his media empire, supposedly independent of his lone one year stint (or so he claims) in league with Langely. Pope financed the purchase via a loan for twenty grand from mobster Frank Costello, who also happened to be godfather of Pope's children. According to Pope, the loan was at "zero interest." Thus, the beginnings of tabloid journalism have the predictable intelligence/Mafia fingerprints all over the place.
In retrospect, it all makes sense. At the time, the CIA plot known as Operation MOCKINGBIRD was in full effect, an attempt to put it's bloody tentacles over the entire korporate media apparatus, an attempt that has clearly succeeded. But as any expert of Machiavellian plots will tell you, to truly kontrol something, you also must kontrol the alternatives. It should then be no surprise that suddenly the supermarket tabloid popped up, to give the masses a false option of "choice". By being an option that is so easily discredited, it somehow manages to reinforce the "legitimacy" and "integrity" of mainstream korporate journalism. The tabloid also serves for middle America as another kontrol mechanism, the pages filled with a reactionary ideology that is disgustingly racist and sexist, which explains why tabloids regularly have been propaganda mills for the ruling klass. And finally, the tabloids are the perfect place to throw a legitimate story that the elites desire to discredit.
Which leads us back to the front page report by the Star linking Access Graphics to kiddie porn. So far, neither John Ramsey or Lockheed Martin have sued. In fact, they have not even bothered to comment. Which is odd, considering the disturbing claims that the Star made. So the question is why have they not commented, and why did the Star publish it in the first place. I'll let you make up your own minds of the meaning of it, but if anyone has a better explanation than that it was released by the Star to discredit the report, I'd like to hear it.
Bizarre phrase with Masonic designs inlaid in the floor of the Denver International Airport.
In any case, the usual suspects have all lined up in the predictable ways.
How big is Haddon, Morgan & Foreman, the law firm representing the Ramseys? As Denver Post columnist Chuck Green put it, "Take a look at their offices here in Denver. Then take a walk over to the Governor's Mansion a few blocks away and tell me which is bigger, and I'll tell you which one is more powerful." Among the firm's clients are Gary Hart, Governor Roy Romer, former Governor Richard Lamm, and, curiously, Hunter S. Thompson. Alex Hunter, Boulder's district attorney, is a political ally of the firm, which may explain why rather than investigating the Ramseys, the D.A.'s office has often seemed more like collaborating with them, sharing evidence with the legal team of the unindicted and uncharged Ramseys. Thanks to arrangements made by their lawyers, the Ramseys were provided with copies of their original statements and police reports if they would agree to talk with the police. The Hunter office has taken as plausible the "lone nut intruder" theory first promoted by the Ramseys, who have pointed the finger of suspicion at any person close to them that seemed to doubt their silly tale. By April 1997, the Boulder police decided they could no longer trust the D.A.'s office, and decided to stop sharing information. Soon after, their computer system was hacked into.
There was fluid found on and near JonBenét's body. Rather than be checked immediately for DNA, it was held, and then later sent to Cellmark Laboratories, the wonderful lab whose supposed impeccable DNA testing "proved" that O. J. Simpson was the real killer. There is no disputing that biological material had been recovered from the JonBenét crime scene, yet soon it was reported that no semen had been found at the crime scene. You would think that by now, those fabulous sleuths at Cellmark would've uncovered something, semen or not, but so far it has been nil. Cellmark, of course, is located in Maryland, right near the Pentagon and the heart of the Military Industrial Komplex.
Soon after hiring their law firm, the Ramseys hired Patrick Korten to be their spokesman, a job Korten held for the Department of Justice under Ed Meese. Korten's firm, Rowan & Blewitt, is a PR firm that boasts of being specialist in "crisis management", a nice term for "spin doctors," which Mr. Korten had a lot of practice during the corrupt reign of Meese in the DOJ. During the Meese years, there was the scandal behind the bilking of Inslaw over its Inslaw software, which ultimately led to the death of journalist Danny Casolaro. Curiously, Casolaro was in Martinsburg, Virginia for a planned interview with members of the staff of good old Senator Byrd on the night of August 9, 1991. Casolaro had mentioned to others that one chapter of his planned expose on government corruption would be about Byrd, and he believed the secrets that would crack the Inslaw case resided with Byrd staff members. What happened in that meeting, or if it indeed happened, is an open question, for the night of August 9 was the last time he was seen alive. He was found dead in his hotel room the next day, officially labeled a suicide though clearly not. Incidentally, August 9-10, 1991 coincided with the 22nd anniversary of the Tate-LaBianca slayings (22 being the year cycles in a the Crowley-inspired Thelemic Calender to match the number of trumps in a Tarot deck.)
And so, the creepy occult fingerprints appear once again. Perhaps it is but a coincidence that the lone Ramsey press conference, which some have compared to a Ramsey infomercial, was on May 1, coinciding with the occult holiday of May Day or Beltain. Or maybe other events swirling in the air of Colorado can provide some clues.
In nearby Denver, the DIA (Denver International Airport) opened in February 1995, 16 months later than planned and way over budget. It was a scandal all by itself, a mystery where all the money disappeared, labeled as government "bungling" and "incompetence". But to some, there is a far greater scandal hidden in the answer as to where the money actually went.
The airport is loaded with secret society symbology. The capstone for the DIA is a Masonic symbol, located at the part of the terminal called The Great Hall, which is the Masonic name for their meeting hall. On the Masonic Capstone is inscribed "NEW WORLD AIRPORT COMMISSION", a group that, strangely, is not officially known to exist. There are many murals at the airport with apocalyptic themes. Some believe these murals represent a blueprint for the plans of the elites. One of the murals depicts 3 caskets containing dead women, each representing groups the elites may label expendable. One is an African or African-American woman, the other is Jewish, and the third is a Native American. In the same mural is shown the destruction of city and forest, a little girl holding a Mayan Tablet that predicts destruction of Civilization. Another mural depicts a green giant "Darth Vader" like figure wearing a gas mask destroying a city. In this mural women can be seen carrying dead babies. Another mural depicts a boy collecting weapons from all the other children of the world. The boy has a huge iron fist and is pounding all the weapons into plowshares on an anvil. The boy appears to be German.
Perhaps you can dismiss this as mere artistic license, a public arts program gone amuck, a Piss Christ or Karen Finley smearing herself in chocolate. However, artists who made the DIA pieces first claimed in an interview that guidelines WERE provided for their work. Their story later changed on this issue.
Disturbing art is but the beginning of explaining the budgetary black hole of DIA. A man named Phil Schneider claimed during the last year of construction that the underground airport system was being connected to a deep underground base. The base is at least 8 levels deep, with a 4.5 square mile underground city and an 88.5 square mile base underneath the airport. Alex Christopher, Author of Pandora's Box and Pandora's Box II - an expose of the British instigation through Washington D.C. over the last 200 years - adds, "It is very unusual that they would allot a 50 square-mile area on the surface at which to locate an airport in the middle of nowhere unless they really planned to use it for something very unusual later. There is a 10-mile, 4-line highway out to this airport, and there is nothing out there in between the airport and Denver. Not even a service station, at least in September 1995."
So why is an author of anti-British smears talking about the DIA? It turns out that, according to Christopher, the Queen of England has been buying up a lot of property in Colorado under a pseudonym. Along with the Crown, the CIA has a naturally great interest in the area. Rodney Stitch, author of Defrauding America, claims to have a copy of a tape of a CIA agent paying off the mayor of Denver to get the airport built, to the tune of $1.5 million. Nazis have an interest in the area as well, as much of the DIA's symbology refers cryptically to the Black Sun, some sort of Nazi secret occult worship. (Colorado had long been a strong center for the neo-Nazi movement, most notably through the June 1984 assassination of radio talk-show host Alan Berg.)
If the Brits, Nazis, and the CIA plotting together over an airport with a huge underground base is too weird for you, then the tales of Lizard Aliens being involved may be too much to swallow. And yet, that is what some informants of the DIA precisely state. Some allege that evil Reptilians and Alien Greys are the true masters of the underground bases (they are also reputedly the true masters of the Pentagon, but that's another story) and are using human slave labor in these deep underground bases, much of this slave labor being children. Supposedly, when the children reach the point that they are unable to work any more, they are slaughtered on the spot and consumed as snacks by the alien lords. (Apparently, the aliens like human children for their veal-like taste.)
Perhaps this explains why, according to some studies, over 200,000 children each year just "disappear". With the alien connection to all this, it should be no surprise that the previously named Phil Schneider also worked and reported on other government underground facilities, such as Area 51 and in Dulce, New Mexico. Schneider has since "committed suicide," supposedly hanging himself.
Are the tales of aliens true or fantasy? That is open to debate. There are some who believe that reports of alien beings involved in black budget operations is a deliberate leak, an attempted smokescreen to discredit any legitimate research in the nefarious work of the Secret Government. There are others who insist that they are the truth. In either case, the only place where alien sightings are reported in the korporate media is in the tabloids, which means it is either being marginalized, being used as propaganda, or (perhaps) both.
Aliens or no, there are some claims that seem to have some validity. On November 15, 1997, a man performing maintenance on a plane at DIA saw there were over 120 children on the flight. When he questioned a woman that was on the flight with the children, she replied, "Social Services, now get out of here" as she flashed a badge. Checking the flight plan records, he discovered the plane was headed for Paris, the same destination as TWA 800.
What is the whole purpose of all this Rocky Mountain weirdness? As the New World inscription at the DIA indicates, the rumor is that the Colorado area is where the establishment of the Western sector of the New World Order will be in the United States. Denver is of a high altitude and ideal for underground buildings. Curiously, according to these same sources, Atlanta is supposed to be the control center for the Eastern Sector, home of the 1996 Olympics (which required a lot of building and construction) and previous stomping grounds of John Ramsey himself.
Is all this rumor just hysterical rambling? Or is there some (if not complete) truth to it all? Is it just a coincidence, or an ominous warning, that the trials of the Oklahoma City Bombing - which many view as a Reichstag-like government-staged act of terrorism to promote a more totalitarian government all to help "protect" us - were held in Denver? Is there something more to the A-10 that flew to Colorado and disappeared somewhere around the area of Vail and Eagle and Aspen, Colorado? Is there more to the "fireballs" that first began being reported January 11, 1998, a mysterious object that lit up the night sky up and down, then startled witnesses with a deafening explosion? (The official explanation is meteors caused by the ultimate konspiracy komet Hale Bopp, but the explanation doesn't seem to explain why the meteors all seem to focus on the Denver area.)
Maybe this is too much dot-connecting for some. After all, there should be some sort of bizarre, astronomically unlikely event with huge hidden occult/Masonic messages to signify that, yes, indeed, the New World Order is here, and Denver is where it is being run at. A clue that would repeatedly use important occult numbers such as 3 (for trinity), 7 (for perfection), and 13 (for bad luck.)
On January 25, 1998, the Denver Broncos won Super Bowl XXXII (which precedes number XXXIII or 33, the highest degree of Freemasonry, and 32 itself is the freezing point on the Fahrenheit scale.) The Broncos victory over 3-time winning Green Bay Packers ended a streak of 13 consecutive years where the AFC representative had lost. The Broncos won by 7 points, scoring 31 (13 backwards.) Their quarterback, the lucky number 7 John Elway, had previously endured 3 humiliating defeats in the Super Bowl during his first 7 seasons, then managed to be shut out from the big game for 7 straight seasons. In his 15th season (or the 3rd set of 7's) he hit paydirt. The game's Most Valuable Player, Terrell Davis, scored 3 touchdowns to pave the way to victory.
Of course, the numbers 3, 7, and 13 pop up quite regularly in football, due to the structure of the scoring system (a system that has important occult meaning, much like the Fahrenheit scale.) And indeed, that may explain most of these coincidences. But let's face it: is there anything, short of Susan Lucci winning a daytime Emmy, as unlikely as the Denver Broncos actually winning a Super Bowl?
I may add that January 25, 1998 is exactly 13 months after the death of JonBenét Ramsey.
All that is needed to start the new era is a ritual sacrifice. And one must wonder if, whether the killer or killers were aware of it, that is precisely what JonBenét's slaying really was: a butchering of innocence to start a new covenant.
So, the question must be asked: is JonBenét Ramsey's death, far from being a pointlessly tawdry tale, one of the most significant event in the history of mankind? Is it part of some nefarious plot, the work of occult-worshipping Freemasons, joining forces with the British Monarchy, Nazis and the CIA, hell-bent on leading us to a destructive New World Order? Is it even possible that the Ramsey's are actually patsies, framed in many people's minds for a crime they didn't commit? Can it be that the hi-tech silent midgets with no footprints I openly mocked before are, in fact, evil Alien Greys, and that JonBenét's death is an alien abduction gone haywire?
Unlikely? Yes. Absurd? Definitely. Outrageously silly? Certainly.
But at least it has an even remote sense of plausibility. Which is more than can be said for the tales that the Ramseys and their mouthpieces have spun.
Thanks to Donald Freed, whose question and suggestion really started this whole piece.
A debt to Alex Constantine, author of Psychic Dictatorship in the USA and Virtual Government, is so obvious, it almost is unnecessary to mention, but thanks again, Alex.
