This broadcast was recorded in one, 60-minute segment.

A young Representative John Conyers and the late Rosa Parks

Introduction: This broadcast concludes our examination of weaponized feminism.

In the context of the Four B’s of American politics–Bullets, Bribes, Beds and Blackmail, the Conyers and Franken “bloodless” political assassinations bear more scrutiny than they have received.

From the standpoint of counter-intelligence analysis, the #MeToo phenomenon signals a superb tactic for political destruction: a) infiltrate a woman into the entourage or professional environment of a male politician, media or business figure targeted for destruction; b) have her gain the trust of her political target and his associates (the cardinal rule for a good double agent is “make yourself indispensable to the effort”); c) after sufficient passage of time, surface the allegations of sexual harassment; d) IF the opportunity for actual sex play and/or flirtation presents itself, take advantage of it for later use as political/rhetorical ammunition; e) with accusers having the tactical luxury of remaining anonymous, the operational template for a form of sexual McCarthyism and the precedent-setting contemporary manifestation of a sexual Star Chamber is very real–the operational similarities between much of the #metoo movement and the Salem Witch Trials should not be lost on the persevering observer; f) proper vetting of the accusations is absent in such a process; g) for a public figure in the U.S., proving deliberate defamation (libel/slander) is extremely difficult and litigation is very expensive–the mere surfacing of charges is enough to taint someone for life and the exorbitant expense of litigation is prohibitive for all but the wealthiest among us.

Recent disclosures concerning Trump’s data ally Cambridge Analytica include the firm’s apparent practice of entrapping political opponents with “Ukrainian sex workers” in order to engineer their destruction.

This should be evaluated against the scenario Mr. Emory has detailed above.

 In FTR #998, we highlighted the removal of John Conyers, Congressional critic of the Nazi Azov Battalion, one of the founders of the Congressional Black Caucus, and senior member of the House Judiciary Committee (which helps vet Presidential judicial appointments.)

Conyers’ removal was signaled and abetted by Alt-Right blogger Mike Cernovich, a documented misogynist who famously observed that: “Misogyny gets you laid.”

One of Conyers’ long-time female staffers–his administrative assistant for more than two decades–did not accuse him of sexual harassment. That staffer was Rosa Parks, whose refusal to go to “the back of the bus” signaled the modern civil rights movement.

Conyers’ employment of Rosa Parks by itself would have been enough to get him targeted by the far right.

We note that, before her emergence as one of the prime movers of the contemporary civil rights movement, Rosa Parks was a cutting-edge feminist activist (before being feminist was “cool.”)

” . . . . She joined the National Association for the Advancement of Colored People (NAACP) in 1943, 12 years before that fateful commute. In her first years in the organization, she worked specifically on criminal justice and its application in Alabama communities.

One part of this was protecting black men from false accusations and lynchings; the other was ensuring that black people who had been sexually assaulted by white people could get their day in court. . . .”

This, also, might well have been motivation enough for the far right to have effected a political lynching of Conyers, adding the irony that his alleged harassment of a female staffer was the reason for his removal. He denied the allegation and said that he settled in court to avoid the great time and expense such litigation would have required.

In conclusion, we dip back a little over 20 years–to August of 1996, to hear a lengthy excerpt of FTR #7, an interview with the late Frank Spiering, the author of Who Killed Polly?

In something of a transitional element to our next show, dealing with school shootings, their political and sociological ramifications and the ominous connections of fascist groups to many of those events, we note how the disappearance of Polly Klaas, a twelve-year old allegedly raped and murdered by Richard Allen Davis, galvanized and terrorized much of America. Like the school shootings, youngsters cowered in fear because of the event.

Eventually, the case led to the passage of California’s “three strikes” law.

Although Davis certainly kidnapped Polly, the evidence suggests that he neither killed her, nor raped her, but that he spirited the young, unfortunate Ms. Klaas away at the behest of a powerful political element.

With the apparent collusion of elements of law enforcement (including elements of FBI), the actual executive authors of the event may have spirited Polly away to slave prostitution in a Saudi brothel, or for some other, monstrous manifestation of child pornography or white slavery.

If Mr. Spiering’s speculation that she may have ended up in a special Saudi brothel specializing in under-age American and Western women, the corruption of elements of law enforcement by the tremendous petroleum wealth and derivative political power of that nation should not be surprising.

“Fill ‘er up!”

After the program was recorded, Frank Spiering passed away. The publisher went out of business.

Recent disclosures concerning Trump’s data ally Cambridge Analytica include the firm’s apparent practice of entrapping political opponents with “Ukrainian sex workers” in order to engineer their destruction.

This should be evaluated against the scenario Mr. Emory has detailed above.

“Revealed: Trunp’s Election Consultants Filmed Saying They Use Bribes and Sex Workers to Entrap Politicians;” Channel 4 News; 3/19/2018.

Senior executives at Cambridge Analytica – the data company that credits itself with Donald Trump’s presidential victory – have been secretly filmed saying they could entrap politicians in compromising situations with bribes and Ukrainian sex workers.

In an undercover investigation by Channel 4 News, the company’s chief executive Alexander Nix said the British firm secretly campaigns in elections across the world. This includes operating through a web of shadowy front companies, or by using sub-contractors.

In one exchange, when asked about digging up material on political opponents, Mr Nix said they could “send some girls around to the candidate’s house”, adding that Ukrainian girls “are very beautiful, I find that works very well”. . . .

2. In FTR #998, we highlighted the removal of John Conyers, Congressional critic of the Nazi Azov Battalion, one of the founders of the Congressional Black Caucus, and senior member of the House Judiciary Committee (which helps vet Presidential judicial appointments.)

“Before the Bus, Rosa Parks Was a Sexual Assault Investigator” by Ryan Mattimore; History.com; 12/8/2017.

2017 may well become known as the year of #MeToo. But the women standing up today are in fact part of a long history of activists fighting sexual harassment. And one of the activists more commonly associated with another movement was a key figure in early attempts to rectify sexual injustice: Rosa Parks.

Revered as a civil rights icon, Rosa Parks is best known for sparking the 1955 Montgomery Bus Boycott, but her activism in the black community predates that day. She joined the National Association for the Advancement of Colored People (NAACP) in 1943, 12 years before that fateful commute. In her first years in the organization, she worked specifically on criminal justice and its application in Alabama communities.

One part of this was protecting black men from false accusations and lynchings; the other was ensuring that black people who had been sexually assaulted by white people could get their day in court. . . .

3. Miscellaneous Archive Show M4: Gloria in Excelsis: The CIA, the Women’s Movement and the News Media highlights the CIA genesis and probable continued Agency association in the professional ascent of America’s seminal, iconic feminist.

In FTR #’s 998, 999, 1000, we analyzed aspects of what we termed “weaponized feminism.” (Note that we use the term “weaponized” to distinguish our focal point from the general social and political philosophy of feminism.)

An interesting consideration in that context concerns the extent to which the doyenne of American feminism–Gloria Steinem–has manifested weaponized feminism as an associate of the CIA. Although Steinem has admitted working for the CIA years ago, she claims she severed her contacts with the agency decades ago.

There is a considerable body of historical evidence that suggests that this is not the case. Furthermore, that evidence raises the important question of the extent to which Steinem herself, is a manifestation of “weaponized feminism.”

When Miscellaneous Archive Show M4: Gloria in Excelsis: The CIA, the Women’s Movement and the News Media was recorded, the “air-check” cassette deck’s “record level” was too high, resulting in distorted sound quality. Although it is more than thirty years old, it does contain a considerable amount of material relevant to America’s preeminent feminist Gloria Steinem. For those who find the audio distortion too extreme for consumption of the information, we offer this transcript of the program.

Executed by the now defunct “Conspiracy Nation” website, it does contain some spelling mistakes, due to phonetic transcription errors. We have corrected most of them, but some probably remain.

Major points of discussion in the program/transcript include:

  1. Steinem’s deep association with CIA’s Independent Research Service.
  2. A series of collaborative efforts on the part of Steinem, her attorneys and powerful corporate and political associates to suppress the Steinem/CIA/Independent Research Service information.
  3. Steinem’s profound connections to the Graham publishing empire, itself inextricably linked to CIA.
  4. Steinem’s 9-year relationship with J. Stanley Pottinger, apparently linked to the October Surprise, and Justice Department obfuscation of the killings of Martin Luther King and Orlando Letelier. Pottinger is friends with George H.W. Bush.
  5. Her links to Elizabeth Forsling Harris, who was instrumental in arranging the details for JFK’s motorcade route in Dallas.

4. Next we dip back a little over 20 years–to August of 1996, to hear a lengthy excerpt of FTR #7, an interview with the late Frank Spiering, the author of Who Killed Polly?

In something of a transitional element to our next show, dealing with school shootings, their political and sociological ramifications and the ominous connections of fascist groups to many of those events, we note how the disappearance of Polly Klaas, a twelve-year old allegedly raped and murdered by Richard Allen Davis, galvanized and terrorized much of America. Like the school shootings, youngsters cowered in fear because of the event.

Eventually, the case led to the passage of California’s “three strikes” law.

Although Davis certainly kidnapped Polly, the evidence suggests that he neither killed her, nor raped her, but that he spirited the young, unfortunate Ms. Klaas away at the behest of a powerful political element.

With the apparent collusion of elements of law enforcement (including elements of FBI), the actual executive authors of the event may have spirited Polly away to slave prostitution in a Saudi brothel, or for some other, monstrous manifestation of child pornography or white slavery.

If Mr. Spiering’s speculation that she may have ended up in a special Saudi brothel specializing in under-age American and Western women, the corruption of elements of law enforcement by the tremendous petroleum wealth and derivative political power of that nation should not be surprising.

“Fill ‘er up!”

5. The following surfaced in the aftermath of the kidnapping and murder of Polly Klass (whose slaying led to the passage of California’s “Three Strikes” law.) One can only imagine the extent to which connections like this bear on the Saudi sponsorship of terrorism and the United States’ reluctance (or inability) to do anything about it. What might surface if the U.S. were to truly crack down on the Saudis?

Who Killed Polly?; by Frank Spiering; Copyright 1995 [SC]; Monterey Bay Press; ISBN 0-964761-2-0-3; p9. 215, 216.

…To reiterate Ernie Allen’s statement, three hundred girls, Polly’s and Katie’s age, are disappearing yearly throughout the United States. It is a growing epidemic, a conspiracy that threatens every family in America. No little girl is safe. The worst part was told to the author by a witness named Jill Murray, who had visited Saudi Arabia. Jill’s father, since deceased, was there on a covert military operation. She said she could not mention the actual towns as she still has friends living there and ‘they would be killed.’ I asked her, who would kill them? She answered ‘The Saudis.’ . . .

. . . . Jill saw brothels where children were kept. The brothels were plain looking buildings in the center of the town, with yellow doors. Men constantly came in and out, mostly Arabs from the oil fields, but men from other businesses as well. Jill peeked past the yellow door into one of the brothels and saw a room filled young girls, white-skinned, about twelve-years old. She learned later that many of them were American, abducted and shipped from the United States. The little girls were wearing small, skimpy, see-through skirts. A customer would pick one of them, and take whomever he wanted upstairs.

Later, Jill saw some of the little girls getting air in the back of the brothel, She could tell they were drugged by the way they walked. Although she never learned who ran the brothels, she found out that in two or three years the little girls were turned into the streets where they were left to die. I asked Jill if she ever reported what she saw, little girls who were drugged and forced into sexual slavery. She admitted that she had – to someone in the diplomatic corps. He said he would see what could be done about the abducted American girls – but to her knowledge, nothing was ever done.

Why weren’t the questions surrounding Polly’s kidnapping answered? One has the feeling there is a devastating secret behind all of the them. . . .
