The Killing of a President
From Where Were You Before The Tree of Life? Vol 5
by Peter Farley

. . .How limited the human mind is in being able to grasp the concept
of a conspiracy so big as to have lasted tens of thousands of years.
The following excerpts from Contract on America The Mafia Murder of
President John F. Kennedy by David Scheim, even show how long (and
how obvious) has been the relationship between these ruling families,
the political and judicial arms of the United States, and one of its
enforcing agencies?organized crime:

The Assassination of Malcolm X
"But there were problems with the official reconstruction of the
crime. Talmadge Hayer, the apprehended and admitted assailant, had a
criminal record but no credibly established Muslim ties. Buttler and
Johnson, on the other hand, were proud and well-known Muslims. But
they were picked up at home well after the fact, maintained their
innocence throughout and were implicated by witnesses of dubious

"Particularly questionable was the prosecution's star witness, Cary
Thomas, a one-time narcotics pusher with several arrests and Army
courts-martial. A bodyguard for Malcolm X at the fateful Audobon
Ballroom engagement, Thomas "stood there transfixed through the
shooting . . . and then ignominiously ducked." He did not furnish any
information about the killing for six weeks, and then presented
contradictory accounts incriminating Hayer, Butler and Johnson. Also
shaky was the testimony of Charles X Blackwell, the only other
witness who implicated all three men. Blackwell first told police
that he didn't know who did the shooting, then rearranged the roles
of the alleged assassins. Finally, under cross-examination, he
admitted that he had lied under oath.

"Another gap in the case against Butler and Johnson was the absence
of any physical evidence incriminating them. The pistol allegedly
fired by Butler was never found and the shotgun allegedly fired by
Johnson could not be traced to him by either fingerprints or purchase
history.. Further clouding the case was the failure of police to
identify or apprehend others whom they believe ordered and abetted
the killing. According to Newsweek editor Peter Goldman, "Their
guesses at the number of men actually involved ranged from four to
six or seven?three guns, plus one or two people to create diversions
and maybe get in the way of the bodyguards, plus one or two getaway

"Some of these suspects were apparently within Malcolm's
organization; as one investigator remarked, "he was definitely set up
for it." Malcolm's bodyguards were not armed, nobody was searched,
police presence was limited, and no one was on stage with Malcolm at
the time of the slaying. All this was purportedly done on Malcolm's
instructions yet was contrary to usual procedure. Particularly
suspicious was one bodyguard whom policed described as a "professional hood,"
who suddenly came into money just before the
assassination. When the diversionary quarrel started, he left his
post and skipped town before police could question him.

"The theory that co-religionists killed Malcolm X suffered another
setback when assailant Talmadge Hayer addressed the judge toward the
end of the trial. Hayer stated he had just been telling Butler and
Johnson that I know they didn't have anything to do with the crime
that was committed at the Audobon Ballroom February 21, that I didn't
take in it and that I know for a fact that they wasn't there, and I
wanted this to be known to the jury and the court, the judge.

"Hayer refused to name his confederates but did furnish this
QQ: . . . did somebody ask you and Yohers to shoot and kill Malcolm X?
Hayer: Well, yes, sir . . .
QQ: Did this person tell you why he wanted to hire you and these
others to assassinate Malcolm X?
Hayer: No, sir.
Q: Were any of them, to your knowledge, Black Muslims?
Hayer: No, they weren't . . .
QQ: What was your motive?
Hayer: Money.

"There was one organization that Hayer would not have fingered at any
cost?the same organization known for using associates of the victim,
perjured witnesses and corrupted officials to assist and cover up its
murders. And, given the crusade of Malcolm X against ghetto rackets,
plus his exhortation to declare an "all-out war against organized
crime," the same group had a clear motive for his murder. Indeed, the
possibility that the Mafia killed Malcolm X was proposed by CORE
leader James Farmer, as reported in Ebony magazine:

"Farmer had conferred with Malcolm in his Greenwich Village apartment
shortly before the young firebrand departed for a trip to Mecca.
Without revealing the content of their conversation, Farmer had since
repeatedly hinted that Malcolm was killed because of his crusade
against the drug traffic.

"In his book, Freedom When?, Farmer writes: "Malcolm's killers have
not been convicted and I have a hunch that the real story of his
death will surprise those who saw it as a case of Muslim revenge.
Malcolm was warring on the international narcotics interests in
Harlem and they were not pleased about it."

The Assassination of RFK:
"The key to unraveling this mystery may lie in thousands of documents
collected during the investigation that for nearly twenty years were
locked away in Los Angeles Police files. All that was released was a
widely expurgated summary that is of no value to scholars. Finally,
in December 1986, after calls to open these files from two Los
Angeles newspapers and several concerned citizens, Los Angeles Mayor
Tom Bradley fulfilled a promise to press for such disclosure, and the
City Council passed a resolution to effect it. Although these RFK
files have been turned over to the California State Archives, nothing
has been released as of this writing. It is imperative that this
evidence be expeditiously and fully disclosed.

"If in fact hints of underworld involvement in the RFK killing are
true, we have come full circle in the Mafia's contract on America.
For recall that on February 15, 1933, Chicago Mayor Anton Cermak was
shot together with several bystanders as Guiseppe Zangara stepped
forward and fired his revolver. Cermak, who dies after accusing the
mob of the shooting, had, like Robert Kennedy, aroused its wrath by
intensive official action against it. And Zangara, the conjectured
victim of a Mafia squeeze play, was, like Sirhan, a drifter who spent
much of his time betting at race tracks.

"But most chillingly reminiscent of the Cermak slaying was the role
of suspected second gunman Gene Cesar. For, according to noted
sociologist Saul Alinsky, the way Cermak was killed had "been
commonly known for many years in many circles in Chicago." As quoted
earlier from The Bootleggers by Kennedy Allsop, "In the crowd near Zangara was
another armed man?a Capone killer. In the flurry of shots six people were
hit?but the bullet that struck Cermak was a .45, and not from the .32-calibre
pistol used by Zangara, and was fired by the unknown Capone man who took
advantage of the confusion to accomplish his mission."

(^Like JFK and RFK's killers, there has always been at least one
other professional to do the job while the front man takes the blame)
Nixon and the Mafia:

"Another of Nixon's closest advisers and friends was Murray Chotiner,
a lawyer who had represented leading Syndicate figures during his
career. Dubbed "the one that made Nixon," Chotiner helped him achieve
his first public position. And Chotiner managed Nixon's political
ascension from California congressman to vice presidential nominee
during the same three year period in which he and his brother
defended Syndicate figures in a total of 221 prosecutions. Chotiner
also conceived the melodramatic "Checkers" speech when a secret fund
scandal threatened to force Nixon off the Eisenhower ticket in 1952
(*The grooming of Nixon for the presidency). This close relationship
continued throughout Nixon's presidency, as demonstrated by a private
office Chotiner occupied in the Nixon White House.

"Chotiner's several Mob associates included D'Alton Smith, who was
close with Carlos Marcello and produced rock music festivals in
California under Marcello's sponsorship. Both Chotiner and Smith were
instrumental in the last stage of the seven-year Mob-Teamster
campaign to thwart Jimmy Hoffa's criminal prosecution. This campaign
was marked by a barrage of bribery, intimidation and perjury,
whose "audacity and sweep," as LIFE magazine noted, few Mob
fixes "could top." It finally succeeded, with the intervention of
Chotiner and Smith, when Nixon commuted Hoffa's prison term in
December 1971.

"Walter Sheridan, a former Kennedy Justice Department officer, had
warned journalist Clark Mollenhoff earlier: "It's all set for the
Nixon Administration to spring Jimmy Hoffa . . .I'm told Murray
Chotiner is handling it with the Las Vegas Mob." The commutation was
granted four months after a U.S. parole board unanimously rejected
such a release. It allowed Hoffa to serve just five years of a 13-
year sentence for jury tampering and defrauding the teamsters of
almost $2 million.

Nixon, The Teamsters, The Mafia
"The New York Times called Nixon's pardon of Hoffa " a pivotal
element in the strange love affair between the Administration and the
two million-member truck union, ousted from the rest of the labor
movement in 1957 for "racketeer domination." This strange kinship
was further demonstrated by the Nixon Administration's repeated
interventions to quash prosecutions and investigations of teamster
criminal activity, as outlined in a Los Angeles Times lead editorial
entitled "Nixon, the Teamsters, the Mafia." (*No wonder trucking has
become the number one way to move things in the USA , carrying the
lifeblood of the country and also threatening to shut off the valve
at any time things are threatened against them or their controllers.)
"One such intervention began with a conclave at La Costa Country
Club, "A Mafia watering hole" in Carlsbad, California. The
participants were Teamster president Frank Fitzsimmons, Allen
Dorfman, Chicago Mafia boss Anthony Accardo and other Mob figures.
The meeting, which occurred February 9-12, 1973, soon turned to
routine business: a massive scam of teamster welfare funds. The
particular scheme under consideration called for teamster members to
be enrolled in prepaid medical plans, which would kick back 7 percent
of their business to People's Industrial Consultants?a Los Angeles
front for the Mob. The take would then be divided among Mob and
teamster bosses. The potential bonanza was huge, with $1 billion in
projected annual business. The conversations at la Costa outlining
the scheme were disclosed by several sources?most notably FBI
electronic surveillance of People's Industrial Consultants.
"On February 9, 1973, while the Mob-Teamster discussions were in
progress, White House aides H.R. Haldeman, John Ehrlichman, John Dean
and Richard Moore also met at La Costa Country Club, for about 12
hours, to discuss Watergate strategy. Some of Nixon's own staff
members found the proximity shocking. On February 12, the last day of
the Mobster-teamster discussions, Teamster boss Fitzsimmons flew back
to Washington with president Nixon on Air Force One. A month later,
Attorney general Richard Kleindienst denied an FBI request to
continue electronic surveillance of people's Industrial Consultants.
Through aides, Kleindienst characterized the surveillance as"
unproductive," to the amazement of FBI agents. On the contrary, as
the New York Times reported, the surveillance "had begun to penetrate
connections between the Mafia and the teamsters union." The Times
called the termination of surveillance an instance of "the perversion
of justice that pose[d] as law and order" in the Nixon

Paul Laxalt, Ronald Reagan, and the Mafia
"Paul Laxalt's relationship with Ronald Reagan was summarized by a
senior aide to the President" "Paul Laxalt is both his closest friend
and most trusted advisor." Laxalt, who as a senator visited Reagan
several times per week, was described as the "First friend" and
called the President's "eyes and ears" in the Senate. He was also
Reagan's campaign manager in 1976 , 1980 and 1984 and nominated him
for president in those three years.

"In contrast to Laxalt's White House connection, however, were
several relationships of a less savory character. Most shocking was
his long-standing association with Allen Dorfman, a convicted
extortionist who presided over the drain of teamster pension funds
into Mob enterprises. Laxalt acknowledged their close relationship in
a 1971 letter to Richard Nixon requesting Jimmy Hoffa's release from

"Dear president Dick,
"The other day I had an extended discussion with Al Dorfman of the
teamsters, with whom I've worked closely the past few years . . This
discussion, which described in detail the personal vendetta that
Bobby Kennedy had against Hoffa, together with other information
provided me over the years, leads me to the inevitable conclusion
that Jim is a victim of Kennedy's revenge. (*And why revenge if not
that the Mobster-affiliated Teamster Union boss was a part of the
assassination of Bobby's brother John?)

"Laxalt described Hoffa as a "political prisoner" and asked Nixon to
release him. Laxalt then once again alluded to his connection with
Dorfman, whom Justice department officials cited as the person "most
responsible" for turning the Teamsters pension fund "into a series of
mob loans."

"While I don't know Mr. Hoffa personally, I have had occasion to have
a great deal of contact with Mr. Dorfman . . ."
"Dorfman's Mob identity was brought home by his 1983 murder, a
gangland-style slaying by ski-masked killers in a Chicago parking
lot. Standing at his side was Irwin Weiner, the highly placed Chicago
Mobster whose pre-assassination contact with Jack Ruby has been

"Moe Dalitz, a Las Vegas Mobster, is another long-standing friend of
Laxalt. After Laxalt's election to the U.S. Senate in 1974, Dalitz
reportedly claimed, "Laxalt is my boy, I put him there." Laxalt
received a total of nearly $50,000 in his two senate campaigns from
Dalitz and several others linked by federal law enforcement agencies
to organized crime. Laxalt, quoted in the Wall Street Journal, said
of Dalitz: "he's been so decent to me over the years, there's no way?
I don't care what the political considerations would be?I would turn
my back on him."

"Another criminal backer of Laxalt was Ruby Kolod, a key fund-raiser
for Laxalt's successful 1966 bid for the Nevada governership. Laxalt
admitted that Kolod, who had been convicted of fraud and extortion in
1965, "did help us tremendously." Other supporters of Laxalt, who
contributed to his campaigns for the U.S. Senate, included the late
Sydney Wyman, formerly an illegal gambling operator and partner of
gangster Bugsy Siegel; Allen Glick, whom an FBI affidavit called a
front for the Chicago Syndicate; Frank "lefty" Rosenthal, another
Chicago Mob front; Morris Shenker, who informants swore in an FBI
affidavit did the Kansas City Mob's bidding; and Benny Binion, a
racket boss with reported ties to the Texas underworld.

"Laxalt also exhibited a disturbing toleration of the underworld in
one of his key business partnerships. In 1970, after his term as
Nevada governor expired, Laxalt and his brother Peter built the
Ormsby House gambling casino in Carson City, Nevada. A third partner
in the venture and its chief source of investment capital was Bernard
Nemerov, who by then had accumulated "a long, documented history of
association with some of the most notorious members of the national
crime syndicate."

"In November, 1983, the Sacramento Bee published an investigative
feature, as exhaustive as it was explosive, on Laxalt's questionable
past. Written by Pulitzer prize-winning journalist Denny Walsh, the
story led with charges by IRS agents that substantial skimming took
place at Ormsby House in the early 1970s and went on to say that
those profits, some $2 million per year, were funneled to organized
crime. A year later, Laxalt sued the Bee's parent company for $250
million; the case was settled out of court, with no monetary damages
awarded, in June 1987. Though the settlement agreement required the
defense to concede that it could not prove the IRS agents'
allegations of skimming at Ormsby House, the Bee retracted none of
the story. In fact, the ties to refuted Mobsters, particularly in
financing the Ormsby House?were left unchallenged in the settlement.
"Given the above entanglements, it is no surprise that as an elected
official, Laxalt took steps to restrain federal action against the
underworld. In 1981, Laxalt spoke with President Reagan and met three
times with then-Attorney General William French Smith to protest
aggressive investigations of the Mob by the FBI and the Justice
Department's organized crime strike force in Las Vegas. (*Notice how
organized crime is rarely mentioned in the media anymore?)

"Claiming that the probes were hurting the city's casino industry,
Laxalt complained to the Miami herald: "We have far more bureau
agents than we need." According to organized crime expert Dan Moldea,
Laxalt also pledged to use his influence on the Senate Appropriations
Committee to rein in the federal investigators in Nevada."

Jack Ruby:
"When a policeman brought Ruby the news that Oswald had died: "Jack,
it looks like it's going to be the electric chair," Ruby immediately
relaxed from his previous extremely nervous and agitated state.
Archer observed that it seemed as if Ruby's life had depended on
killing Oswald.

Power is more than just controlling money. In a famous scene from The
Godfather Part 3, Al Pacino's character Don Corleone laments his
inability to go straight because ?the higher I go, the dirtier it

Economic destabilization is essential to the New World Order's final
takeover. As we have seen in the past few volumes, this has been
taking place throughout the world for centuries. It is implemented
through a slower but most efficient process, controlled by a very few
families under the auspices of the leaders of the New World Order.
This process currently under way will eventually cause the entire
financial system of the West to collapse. The people involved are the
same people who cause the price of oil to go up and then, after
convincing European neighbors to agree to these price rises, provide
that the yield coming from the price rises will be paid to
the 'International Reserve Bank', which is entirely at their command.
The Reserve Bank hands the money over to a 'holding bank' who
lavishly loans the money to Third World countries for usurious rates
of interest.

"The holding bank receives the interest paid by the underdeveloped
countries, then puts it into another 'holding bank' which, in turn,
invests the huge quantity of money on behalf of the Arabs."

"Those investments are made into thriving large businesses. In the
meantime, only small interests are sent to Arab countries. "Those who
engineered the plan were perfectly aware that the leaders of the
underdeveloped countries would be tempted to pocket a good percentage
of the moneys so that few of the people would see any but the
slightest benefit."

Albert Pike 33? Mason--"The Masonic Religion should be, by all of us
initiates of the high degrees, maintained in the purity of the
Luciferian Doctrine. If Lucifer were not God, would Adonay whose
deeds prove his cruelty, perfidy and hatred of man, barbarism and
repulsion for science, would Adonay and his priests, calumniate him?
Yes, Lucifer is God, and unfortunately Adonay is also god. For the
eternal law is that there is no light without shade, no beauty
without ugliness, no white without black, for the absolute can only
exist as two gods: darkness being necessary to the statue, and the
brake to the locomotive."

And many of us have bought into this madness that this kind of
control and darkness is of the Creator's doing.
