It may take weeks if not months, before the possibility of foul play is clear in the demise of John F. Kennedy, Jr. The government authorities, of course, like in the case of TWA Flight 800, exactly three years previous, are disregarding the statements of credible witnesses, such as, that a white flash was seen near where Junior's plane was presumed to be and that some kind of a projectile streamed up to the plane. The disappearance or concealment of pertinent records are also to be considered. A few seconds after he identified himself to the tower of the airfield where he intended to land, his plane dropped in excess of 6 thousand feet per minute. Did something hit his plane after positive identification once he went on the radio with his ID? Weather radar reports for the time and zone reportedly have disappeared as have satellite imaging for that time and zone of the East coast.
The super-secret National Reconnaissance Office, NRO, is in charge of satellites. A key figure in their imaging program, Daniel Potter, was murdered in an unsolved crime, March, 1998. Why? He reportedly was going to go public with images showing that the already dead body of Clinton White House Deputy Counsel, Vincent W. Foster, Jr., was moved from near the White House and planted next to a cannon in the Civil War-era zone called Fort Marcy Park,Virginia. That would contradict the official government big lie that he committed suicide in that park. The murder of Potter, of course, wa a warning to knowledgeable satellite folks to SHUT UP.
AMONG THE MOTIVES FOR FOUL PLAY: 1. John F. Kennedy, Jr., unlike other members of his family was unscarred by scandal. He planned to reveal a well-kept secret that on or about August 1, 1999, he was to announce he was running for president, as a traditional Democrat or in view of the distrust of both parties, to run as a independent on a third party ticket. Gore's people had asked him if he would run as second fiddle on the Gore presidential ticket. He said he originally thought to run against Hillary Clinton for U.S. Senator from New York but decided instead to run for President. So the secret somehow got out and the Bush family found out. As we showed in earlier stories, the Bush family had an interest to clear off the field of competitors, by the attempted assassination over Chicago of Gore[7/9/99] and apparently succeeding with Junior[7/16/99].
2. Kennedy had been the publisher of George Magazine. Despite having a circulation base of 400,000, it was not getting a good buck for its advertisements. The parent firm of George Magazine is Hachette, a French firm that also owns several other magazines in the U.S. One of the largest owners of Hachette has been Saddam Hussein, the Iraqi strongman. Saddam is also the major owner of the French firm Matra, that owns and operates the baggage and passenger system at O'Hare International Airport, Chicago, called the "people mover system". The city official in charge of the airport showed no concern of this when we interviewed her on tape. So what is all this talk about safeguards against "airport terrorism" and all that----when a media-described so-called "terrorist" is the owner of the key system at one of the nation's largest airports?
3. Confidants of Junior were aware of his plan, after the expected reported close-up of George Magazine, to finger a dirty deal he knew about between George Herbert Walker Bush, once U.S. president, and Saddam Hussein. Some of the details of that:
During the period of "Desert Shield", prior to the actual shooting by the U.S. in the Persian Gulf, started an important yet unpublicized case in Federal District Court in Chicago. That was October, 1990. PEOPLE OF THE STATE OF ILLINOIS ex rel. WILLIAM C.HARRIS [state bank regulator] versus Board of Governors of the Federal Reserve System, et al., No.90 C 6863. The case was brought by the Illinois State Banking supervisor against the Federal Reserve Board. Joining as an intervening party-defendant was the House Banking Committee, then headed by Cong. Henry Gonzalez [D., Texas]. The banking regulator wanted the Court to order the Federal Reserve Board to get back from the House Committee, super-secret bank records of Italy's largest bank, Banca Nazionale Delavoro, BNL, owned in part by the Vatican. The bank regulators were responsible for supervising the Chicago branch of BNL which was interwoven as almost a twin with the mysterious espionage and assassination funding money laundry Bank of Credit and Commerce International, BCCI. [Despite the media reports that BCCI went under in 1991,it continues through its alter ego, Pinnacle Banc Group, the flagship of which is First National Bank of Cicero(mafia enclave next to Chicago). Dominant force behind the Cicero bank has been Bishop Paul Marcinkus, for many years head of the Vatican Bank.]
Congressman Gonzalez was ordered to return the BNL records because he refused to sign a national security oath that he would not divulge the contents. The CIA General Counsel, whose affidavit is an exhibit in the Court record, said the bank records should not be divulged for severe reasons of national security. The District Judge ordered an injunction to stop the Federal Reserve from revealing the records and required the Congressional Committee to return the super-secret bank records. Shortly after the short shooting war against Saddam, the U.S. Court of Appeals Seventh Circuit, headquartered in Chicago, heard the oral argument and presentation of the case on appeal. I and my associates were the ONLY reporters that attended. After the hearing, I interviewed from prior knowledge from reliable sources, two participants at the hearing. I asked: Is it not true that the fight in this case over the records of a secret partnership relates to Saddam Hussein having a secret, PRIVATE BUSINESS PARTNERSHIP with George Herbert Walker Bush, then U.S. President. The lawyer, quite familiar with the case, answered YES. I wanted to be super-careful, so I asked the same question three times. Each time, the answer was YES. My next question: What is the reason for the secrecy. Answer: Divulging these bank records would most likely cause a worldwide bank run because of the nature of the documents; which the bank supervisory state officials feel obligated to prevent. I then asked the identical questions, three-times repeated, to the General Counsel of the Bank Commissioner. He answered three times, YES. He then volunteered that the Bush Justice Department, in additon, has records of the PRIVATE BUSINESS PARTNERSHIP between George Herbert Walker Bush and Saddam Hussein. This of course contradicts the public statements of Bush when he was President and condemned Saddam. In its simplest form, it is a fight between private business partners, which in everyday life sometimes gets violent.
What were Bush and Saddam fighting over? During the period of 1980 to 1990, Iraq was the bully boy of the Persian Gulf. Up to 1988, Saddam fought Iran, thus keeping up the price of oil by destruction of facilities. Iraq was financed by the weak oil sheikdoms of the Persian Gulf. During that decade, the Sheiks agreed to secretly pay Saddam 25% of the proceeds of oil shipped to the West. Some one trillion dollars worth was sent during the decade. That came out to 25 billion dollars per year, or 250 Billion dollars for the decade. Saddam shared the same with Bush, both becoming among the richest people on the planet.
Bush was instrumental in getting Kuwait functioning in the oil pumping business right after 1960, when they no longer were a British colony. Bush and his family had a heavy financial interest in oil drilling and pumping equipment providers. As a pay-off, Bush son, George W. Bush, was given an substantial, lucrative interest in Harken Energy whose primary facilities are the sheikdom of Bahrain. Bush as President saw to it that Bahrain became a permanent U.S. Military outpost, thus safeguarding his family interests.
With his share of this petroleum river of money, Bush became one of the largest owners in the U.S. of choice real estate, such as that in Silicon Valley. His interests are disguised through a Spanish named trust, HIDALGO. Saddam's half-brother in Geneva, Switzerland, stated that he would reveal details requiring U.S. authorities to prosecute Bush for treason, if ever the CIA, orchestrated by Bush and his cronies, assassinated Saddam Hussein. The half-brother was later himself assassinated.
4. By the summer of 1991, the three-judge federal appeals court panel made their decision. That it was a mistake for the case to be in the courts altogether. In effect, they ordered the case removed from the courthouse. At this late date, we are about the only ones that have a complete copy of the court records. Shown there, for example, is how the top officials of the Federal Reserve communicated with the top Italian government officials in Rome, about the great urgency of getting back the records of BNL.
5. Upon the reported expected close-up of George Magazine, John F. Kennedy, Jr. would have no difficulty getting somehow, SOME publicity of the foregoing, despite the worldwide efforts of the oil-soaked monopoly press for censorship. Kennedy's statements had the possibility of causing a groundswell of interest in the crimes of the Bush family. SUCH AS: George Herbert Walker Bush, by corruption and bribery, escaped prosecution when his business partner, Serano, top official of Mexico's government oil monopoly, PEMEX, was sent to jail for corruption. Such as, Bush, through his offshore drilling rigs through his company, Zapata Petroleum, renamed Zapata Offshore, was instrumental in the transit of the dope traffic, the rigs being beyond the jurisdictional limits of U.S. jurisdiction, have been reportedly a key phase of dope. Such as a little known FBI document lays the basis for accusing the elder Bush of complicity in the cover up of the assassination of President Kennedy whose son John was well aware of Bush's role in the vile murder. Junior's statement would cause a firestorm of criticism against Bush, his son running for President, and Bush's crony Clinton and the Clinton Justice Department. The public most likely would demand the federal criminal prosecution of the elder Bush and several of his sons on a variety of charges, including bank fraud and embezzlement [son Neal, Silverado S & L, Denver], treason [the elder Bush and son George W. Bush], dope money laundering through southern European banks [reportedly by son Jeb Bush].
6. The whole mess would have wrecked the Presidential aspirations of George W. Bush and surely made the younger Kennedy a winner for president.
7. By the way, in 1991, only one newspaper, a populist conservative one
in Washington, D.C.published substantially a verbatim version of my
report about the federal case involving the secret private business
partnership of Bush and Saddam Hussein, and the Chicago branch of BNL:
"Spotlight", August 19, 1991. The oil-soaked monopoly press continues to
avoid ever mentioning the foregoing details.
