Tenacious Sandy Hook Researcher Wins One in Court

As questions continue to surround the official story of the devastating 2012 shooting of schoolchildren and staff in Newtown, Conn., one researcher has prevailed in a lawsuit brought against him by the father of one of the slain children. Dave Gahary interviewed former state trooper Wolfgang Halbig to learn more about the situation. 

By Dave Gahary

TAVARES, Fla.—As the five-year anniversary of one of the worst mass shootings in U.S. history approached, this small city in central Florida—located 1,144 miles from Newtown, Conn.—recently played host to the ongoing drama around whether or not the Dec. 14, 2012 Sandy Hook Elementary School shooting took place as the government says it did.

Wolfgang W. Halbig, who is convinced no children were killed at Sandy Hook, prevailed in a lawsuit brought against him by the father—Leonard Pozner—of one of the children murdered by 20-year-old Adam Lanza. Halbig achieved mass notoriety when an interview that this reporter had conducted with him revealed that Halbig had been visited by two homicide detectives from his local sheriff’s office, who asked him to stop asking questions about the shooting.

Halbig, a former Florida State Trooper and school safety consultant, is best known for his request to have his “16 simple questions” about the event answered by calling and emailing multiple agencies as well as by filing dozens of Freedom of Information Act (FOIA) requests.

Pozner brought the suit against Halbig when Halbig revealed on his website the contents of a FOIA request, which included some of Pozner’s personal information.

This reporter attended the Nov. 7 hearing in Tavares and conducted an exclusive interview with Halbig’s attorney, Caleb Payne, who discussed a bit of his client’s history vis-à-vis Sandy Hook and the details of the case.

American Free Press asked him how he got hooked up with Halbig.

“I jumped at the chance to represent Wolf in this case because to me it’s a very clear First Amendment violation,” he said. “The First Amendment is something that is integral to our society and the ability for people in the media and the press to be able to ask questions and keep the rest of the government in check.”

Payne explained how Pozner came to sue Halbig. In a disturbing turn of events, a symptom of the police state warned about by John W. Whitehead in his A Government of Wolves: The Emerging American Police State, state agents simply showed up at his house unannounced, wanting to rifle through Halbig’s personal belongings just for asking some questions.

“Mr. Halbig was in his home when some agents with the state showed up and wanted to go through his records,” Caleb explained. “He asked what this was about, and they stated that someone had filed a complaint with the state attorney here, Pam Bondi. So Mr. Halbig then filed a FOIA request to get that [complaint] from Ms. Bondi’s office. He received it, and he put it on the web.”

The FOIA contained Pozner’s mailing address, a post office box, but that was enough for him to hire a lawyer. In response, Halbig not only removed the personal information—which he wasn’t required to do—but also deactivated his website, sandyhookjustice.com. Pozner, however, continued to harass Halbig.

The judge ordered Pozner to be at the next hearing and produce the answers required via discovery—requests for answers to interrogatories, production of documents, and depositions.

The chance to question Pozner under the watchful eye of a video camera never arrived, however, as Pozner dismissed his complaint the afternoon he was required to provide the discovery answers, leaving Halbig with a big legal bill and a shuttered website. Halbig says he will countersue for attorney’s fees and costs.

Dave Gahary, a former submariner in the U.S. Navy, prevailed in a suit brought by the New York Stock Exchange in an attempt to silence him. Dave is the producer of an upcoming full-length feature film about the attack on the USS Liberty.

SPLC Wages War on Conservative Pastor

Jacob Tyler recently talked with Pastor Chuck Baldwin for a little background and perspective on why the Southern Poverty Law Center has persistently had him in its sights for nearly a decade. 

By Jacob Tyler

The Southern Poverty Law Center (SPLC) has had conservative Christian Pastor Chuck Baldwin in its sights since at least 2008, labeling him an extremist and cautioning law enforcement to be wary of his supporters, as they’re potentially “domestic terrorists.” Anyone who has spent time in the trenches for the cause of truth is acquainted with the slanderous shenanigans of the SPLC.

The self-proclaimed arbiter of justice and tolerance, defender of civil rights, and hate-group watchdog purports to shine the bright light of truth on the misdeeds of the mythical right-winger ever skulking in the dark, tirelessly scheming to repress people of color in ever new and more imaginative ways. In truth, however, from the SPLC’s perspective, merely possessing a political outlook even slightly to the right of the leftist behemoth is enough to warrant being targeted. In its zealous pursuit of this paranoid agenda, the SPLC attacks and defames even the most dignified and respectable of individuals.

Its focus on Baldwin is one such example. Baldwin, who now lives in Montana, founded the Crossroads Baptist Church in Pensacola, Fla., hosted “Chuck Baldwin Live” for eight years, and is a prolific writer. The “shoot first, ask questions later” approach employed by SPLC co-founder and attorney Morris Dees and his lackeys has invited more than a little criticism throughout the years.


IRS Loses Cases

An article in the July/Aug. 2017 issue of Politico Magazine notes: “As Dees navigates the era of Trump, there are new questions arising around a charge that has dogged the group for years: that the SPLC is overplaying its hand, becoming more of a partisan, progressive hit operation than a civil rights watchdog. . . . Critics say the group abuses its position as an arbiter of hatred by labeling legitimate players ‘hate groups’ and ‘extremists’ to keep the attention of its liberal donors and grind a political ax. . . . [I]ts authority to police the boundaries of American political discourse is facing its greatest challenge yet.”

It has gotten so bad that even Israeli Ambassador to the U.S. Ron Dermer in a December 2016 speech condemned the SPLC as “defamers and blacklisters.”

AFP recently spoke with Baldwin, who explained the chronology of the SPLC’s focus on him. He first came under fire shortly before beginning his presidential campaign in 2008. “A deputy sheriff came into my office one day and asked if I’d come out to his squad car, where he proceeded to show me on his computer a report that had been issued to law enforcement personnel . . . which identified myself and my friend, Pastor Greg Dixon [an independent Baptist preacher who was a principal founder of the American Coalition of Unregistered Churches and an iconic figure in modern Christian circles] on a watch list of potential government extremists,” Baldwin stated.

When asked by AFP what put him on the “extremist” radar to begin with, Baldwin stated he believed that anyone who takes stands such as those he is known for will not go long without receiving a similar level of attention. The SPLC’s attention has continued intermittently since then. In the past decade, there have been other examples of the SPLC targeting Baldwin.

In 2009 law enforcement officials were instructed in a now infamous February 2009 report titled “The Modern Militia Movement,” prepared by the Missouri Information Analysis Center, to be on the lookout for anyone driving vehicles with bumper stickers promoting the campaigns of Ron Paul, Libertarian Party presidential candidate Bob Barr, or the Constitution Party’s Chuck Baldwin, asserting there was a tangible possibility that such people were “right-wing extremists.”

In 2010, after Baldwin relocated to Montana, another deputy sheriff showed him a copy of a memo released by a local police lieutenant for other law enforcement officials in the area that once again placed Baldwin on a watch list based on reports being disseminated by the SPLC.

In 2011, Baldwin was targeted yet again by the SPLC shortly after starting a non-501(c)(3) church organization, Liberty Fellowship. Again, he was labeled an extremist.

“I have lived under the cloud of these accusations spawned by the SPLC for all of these years,” Baldwin lamented. “Almost without exception, reporters I encounter will bring up claims leveled against me by the SPLC. For the most part, it seems that they have a political agenda, and for the most part they’re going to stick with what the SPLC has to say. But there are also many who are only interested in my message and support me even more when they hear about the SPLC’s attacks. They’ll look me up and become a supporter as a result of the attacks, so it is a mixed bag of results.”

Perhaps most galling about all of this is that Baldwin, a conservative Christian pastor who advocates for traditional American values, is being routinely targeted and slandered by the SPLC while many left-leaning pastors are given a free hand to foment disinformation and division among the American people, then exalted by the SPLC and the media for doing so. AFP asked Baldwin to comment on this.

“It just goes to show the biased agenda of the SPLC,” he stated. “The organization has a very prejudiced agenda in which people they deem to be outside their political persuasion are targeted for destruction while people that favor their political ideology are given a pass.

“It also serves to spotlight the agenda of the mainstream media, as it follows in lockstep with whatever narrative the SPLC decides to run with—which I feel people are definitely waking up to. This has, of course, had a lot to do with the election of Donald Trump—but the underlying answer is that this is a very biased organization with no interest in truth or honesty with a definite political agenda. That agenda is the politics of destruction. They try to destroy the reputation and character of individuals that oppose them. The real hate mongers here are the SPLC.”

When asked if he felt patriots being targeted by the SPLC had any recourse against the persecution, Baldwin concluded:

“They have to recognize that the MSM [mainstream media] and all its facets is deliberately going to lie to them. Start looking to independent news sources instead. American Free Press has been around for a long time and puts out news that other people will not put out. [Much of] the independent media is truly presenting a balanced view on what’s going on and doing some good, old-fashioned journalism, which is virtually a dead art as far as the MSM is concerned.”

Israeli Interests Come Before Recovery

The extensive destruction wrought by Hurricane Harvey has shone a light on a Texas law that prohibits the State from contracting with firms that engage in boycott, divest and sanctions (BDS) actions against Israel. But allotting contracts only after requiring the equivalent of a “loyalty oath” from companies wanting to assist storm-beleaguered Texans is eerily reminiscent of McCarthyism. Dave Gahary and Mark Dankof recently discussed the state’s outrageous anti-BDS law—listen in at the link below. 

By Dave Gahary

If there are still folks out there who question the allegiance of American politicians, all one need do is look to Dickinson, Texas (population around 19,000), where the city elders demanded that denizens who wished rebuilding funds to rectify Hurricane Harvey’s destruction “certify in writing that they will not take part in a boycott of Israel.”

AFP Podcast

Hurricane Harvey, the costliest tropical cyclone on record and the second-costliest ($150 billion to $190 billion) natural disaster worldwide, drenched eastern Texas over a four-day period in late August with nearly 65 inches of rain in some areas, which caused catastrophic flooding that destroyed hundreds of thousands of homes, displaced more than 30,000 people, and necessitated over 17,000 rescues.

To force beaten-down Americans to grovel for emergency funds after a disaster of this magnitude may be par for the bureaucratic course, but to require they pledge an oath of fealty to a foreign country in order to get those funds is beyond the pale.

But Israel, as American Free Press readers are painfully aware, has never been short of chutzpah—the Yiddish “audacity,” used to describe someone or something that has overstepped the boundaries of acceptable behavior.

The city’s “Hurricane Harvey Repair Grant Application and Agreement” required that applicants agree to follow building codes, apply for the necessary permits, use funds solely for their project, and—incredibly—pledge to not boycott Israel.

Section 11 stated: “By executing this agreement below, the applicant verifies that the applicant: (1) does not boycott Israel; and (2) will not boycott Israel during the term of this agreement.”

Yes, folks, that’s really what it stated, not states, because the outrage this requirement generated forced Dickinson to reconsider its demand. This “strange stipulation” even had the fake news media raising their collective eyebrows, with a staunchly Zionist Time magazine headline blaring, “A Texas City Will Only Give You Hurricane Aid If You Promise Not to Boycott Israel.”

Most likely, Dickinson finally cried “uncle” when the American Civil Liberties Union (ACLU) weighed in. ACLU of Texas Legal Director Andre Segura stated:

The First Amendment protects Americans’ right to boycott, and the government cannot condition hurricane relief or any other public benefit on a commitment to refrain from protected political expression. Dickinson’s requirement is an egregious violation of the First Amendment, reminiscent of McCarthy-era loyalty oaths requiring Americans to disavow membership in the Communist party and other forms of “subversive” activity.

The ACLU pointed out in a news story Oct. 19 that the Supreme Court “ruled decades ago that political boycotts are protected by the First Amendment, and other decisions have established that the government may not require individuals to sign a certification regarding their political expression in order to obtain employment, contracts, or other benefits.”

The news story also mentions the ACLU “filed a federal lawsuit challenging a Kansas law on behalf of a high school math teacher who is being required by the state to certify that she won’t boycott Israel if she wants to take part in a teacher training program,” and that the organization had “sent a letter to members of Congress opposing a bill that would make it a felony to support certain boycotts of companies doing business in Israel and its settlements in the occupied Palestinian territories.”

Dickinson claimed the city was just following the law in Texas, referring to H.B. 89, which was passed by the Texas House on April 20 (voting 131 to 0 with 12 present, not voting) and the Texas Senate on April 27 (voting 27 to 4), and signed by Gov. Greg Abbott on May 2. This act took effect on Sept. 1. Significantly, the law is aimed at companies, using the language, “Prohibition on Contracts with Companies Boycotting Israel”; Dickinson’s demand that individuals follow the law was fraught with trouble.

Abbott—like many U.S. politicians who want to keep the Israel lobby’s spigot aimed at their campaign coffers—groveled to Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu in Jerusalem in January 2016, openly stating that he wanted Texas legislators to pass such a ban.

He got his wish, and crowed “any anti-Israel policy is an anti-Texas policy” when he signed the clearly unconstitutional bill into law. Shamelessly kissing Israel’s backside even further, he posted on his official website, “Anti-Israel policies are anti- Texas policies, and we will not tolerate such actions against an important ally.”

Yes, this is all true, dear reader. Whoever can kiss Israel’s butt the best wins a prize! If it wasn’t so un-American it might be funny. But it’s not, as it’s a threat to our God-given freedoms. What’s worse is that this law is similar to existing laws in at least 22 other states, leaving only 27 states to go. The United States of Israel, anyone?

What’s behind the nationwide push to protect “our greatest ally” is the success of the Boycott, Divestment and Sanctions Movement (BDS), created in 2005 “to increase economic and political pressure on Israel to end what it describes as violations of international law.” BDS seeks “the end of Israel’s occupation and settler colonization of Palestinian land and the Golan Heights, full equality for Arab-Palestinian citizens of Israel, and acknowledgement of the right of return of Palestinian refugees.”

AFP asked Mark Dankof, a Texas resident and U.S. Senate candidate, for his views on H.B. 89. [Listen to the full interview with Dankof at the podcast link above.]

“Here in Texas, sadly enough,” Dankof told AFP, “what we refer to as the ‘conservative movement’ is, in many cases, nothing of the type. If you look at the Republican Party state platform of Texas, it’s solidly Zionist, it’s solidly globalist and interventionist, and it’s something that could have been easily penned by Netanyahu himself.

“The notion that any state government, much less the federal government,” he concluded, “should be able to say to any legitimately incorporated business in the United States that they have to sign off, officially, in support of Mr. Netanyahu’s policies—many of which the United States government says are a violation of international law—[is ludicrous].”

Trump Will Release JFK Documents

The CIA and FBI are worried about President Trump’s release of thousands of JFK assassination files. Apparently, 54 years has not allowed them enough time to review the documents, so they’ve asked him for another six-month delay. The new deadline for the withheld documents is April 26, 2018. S.T. Patrick spoke with Joseph Green of the Hidden History Center to discuss the new documents released; podcast link below.

By S.T. Patrick

Though President Donald Trump has acquiesced to the CIA and FBI that requested another 180 days to reevaluate their reasons for redactions, the president did not block the release of over 2,800 John F. Kennedy assassination documents to the public. The releases coincided with the Oct. 26 date that had been set by the JFK Records Act of 1992—25 years to the day after the act was passed by Congress.

In July, the National Archives began releasing the first batch of documents. The releases came earlier than researchers had been expecting and included 441 CIA and FBI documents that had been completely withheld and 3,369 previously released documents that had been redacted to varying degrees.

The first significant revelation from the July records release concerned Earle Cabell, who was the mayor of Dallas in 1963 when Kennedy was assassinated. Documents revealed that Cabell had been a CIA asset since 1956. His brother, Charles Cabell, had been deputy director of the CIA until Kennedy forced him to resign in the CIA shake-up that emanated from the Bay of Pigs fallout.

AFP Podcast

Another newly released record describes a phone call made 25 minutes before the assassination.  The anonymous call to the British Cambridge News warned a reporter that some “big news” was coming. The caller then suggested that the reporter call the American embassy for details. After the assassination, the reporter informed the Cambridge police, who then relayed the information to MI5, the UK’s domestic counter-intelligence and security agency.

Dr. John Newman, author of JFK & Vietnam and Oswald and the CIA, and Jefferson Morley of “JFKfacts.org” have been mining the 2017 releases for information on what and when the CIA knew about alleged assassin Lee Harvey Oswald. Morley, the author of The Ghost: The Secret Life of Spymaster James Jesus Angleton, has been using the documents to argue that the CIA controlled, rather than botched, the Warren Commission’s investigation of Oswald.

“The CIA made at least four false statements to investigators,” Morley wrote. “The effect of these statements was to conceal what top CIA officers, including Angleton, knew of Oswald while JFK was still alive.”

The new documents appear to quell many arguments that the KGB was actively involved in both Oswald’s preparation and the assassination itself. However, new questions have been raised about Cuban involvement. Theorists who have claimed involvement from Fidel Castro point to CIA attempts to assassinate Castro as motive. JFK assassination researchers such as Joseph Green of the Hidden History Center disagree in light of Castro’s own comments.

“If you’ve ever read what Castro said on Nov. 23, 1963, it’s an amazing speech,” Green said. “Castro had it figured out immediately. He said, ‘They’re going to blame it on us.’ Castro knew he was losing an ally. Lyndon Johnson’s foreign policy with respect to Cuba was not going to be the same as Kennedy’s. But he also saw that he was being set up.”

Green also believes the withheld documents are equally telling, as they weave a narrative about who is being protected.

“Are we covering up all of this because we are trying to protect the fact that the KGB sent (Oswald)?” Green asked. “Would the CIA be concerned about documents implicating Castro? No. There’s only one reason for the government to be upset and delaying after 54 years the release of documents that should be completely harmless documents.”

On Oct. 21, Trump tweeted that he would be “allowing, as president, the long blocked and classified JFK files to be opened.” Critics condemned the semantics of the tweet, stating that the president does not “allow” the release of the documents. The 1992 law mandates their release. He can, however, choose to block specific releases if he can show, according to the JFK Records Act, that a release would signify an “identifiable harm to the military defense, intelligence operations, law enforcement, or conduct of foreign relations . . . and that the identifiable harm is of such gravity that it outweighs the public interest in disclosure.”

The Assassination Records Review Board (ARRB) was set up by the act to serve as an independent agency that would consider arguments and then render decisions when the release of a record was challenged by a government agency. In its final report, the ARRB cited the Oliver Stone film “JFK” as a catalyst for the passage of the JFK Records Act. Since 1992, the ARRB has declassified over 5 million documents.

The general public still awaits a “smoking gun” document that the vast majority of researchers know will never come. The documents that have already been released add colors and dimensions to a basic construct that was established by first-generation researchers that questioned the Warren Commission immediately after its volumes were released in 1964.

A deadline for those documents withheld for further review has been set for April 26, 2018.

Homelessness, Infectious Diseases Combine to Create Health Disaster

In an example of America’s rapidly eroding status as a First World nation, an outbreak of hepatitis A—serious enough to lead California’s governor to declare a state of emergency—has hit the homeless populations around both San Diego and Detroit, sickening at least 1,000 people. The general lack of cleanliness that leads to such disease outbreaks is an example of the powers-that-be failing to address problems impacting the rest of us “deplorables,” says one public health physician. 

By Dave Gahary

The breakdown of the United States is manifested in many ways, but perhaps no way illustrates the decline of this once-great nation more than its swelling homeless population, and, with it, diseases that were once seen only in Third World countries. The numbers back up what many of us suspect: According to the U.S. Department of Housing and Urban Development’s November 2016 Annual Homeless Assessment Report to Congress, “on a single night in 2016, 549,928 people were experiencing homelessness in the United States.”

AFP Podcast

Indicative of the disaster, two separate outbreaks of hepatitis A in California and Michigan that began last year and have killed dozens of people are threatening to spread across the country, and public health officials have very few tools in their arsenal to stop the wave of contagion.

On Oct. 13, California Gov. Jerry Brown declared a state of emergency, which will allow state health officials to buy additional doses of the hepatitis A vaccine to try to halt the outbreak, the country’s second largest in more than 20 years. The only one larger occurred in Pennsylvania in 2003, when almost 1,000 people caught hepatitis A from contaminated green onions.

The outbreak, which began in San Diego’s homeless community last year, has now spread into other regions. Los Angeles and Santa Cruz counties are now experiencing outbreaks. It has gotten so bad in San Diego that contractors have started blasting the city’s downtown streets with bleach.

Hepatitis A “is a viral infection that involves the liver and makes people sick for maybe a month or so,” Dr. Jane Orient, the chairman of the Pima County, Ariz. Medical Society’s Public Health Committee for about 30 years and the president of Doctors for Disaster Preparedness, told American Free Press in an exclusive interview.

“They become jaundiced, and they may have nausea and vomiting,” Dr. Orient continued. “It is generally a self-limited disease, although it is contagious, and people generally get over it and do fine and are immune to it afterwards. It is generally transmitted in contaminated food; it’s a fecal-oral route that is excreted in the stool, and if you contaminate the food with it then that’s how it’s usually transmitted—although the San Diego outbreak does not appear to involve food handlers, but rather people are getting it from the environment, because, I guess, in San Diego they have a particularly filthy environment.”

AFP asked Dr. Orient why a First World nation like the United States has seen 19 people die from the disease in the San Diego area and 14 people die so far in the Detroit area, with over 1,000 infected in both regions.

“I think that we’re just seeing a breakdown in our civilization,” she said, “which includes standards of cleanliness that have been accepted for decades at least and maybe for centuries. Why are we going back to the time when they denied the germ theory of disease?”

The germ theory of disease, Dr. Orient explained, “means that disease is transmitted by microscopic organisms that you can acquire by drinking dirty water or contamination of your food, that these are bacteria or viruses that grow and multiply in your body and that make you sick. This is the most important reason why Third World countries have such high rates of diseases: They do not have clean water and sanitation.”

AFP asked why she thinks the germ theory of disease is not being addressed by those in power.

“I think it’s a matter of political correctness that would involve critiquing things like allowing people to wander through the streets and live in a way that endangers the health of the whole population,” she explained. “It seems that there are people that care more about political correctness than they do about the health of the average American citizen. I think they consider themselves to be sort of immune: They’re protected, they live in an elite community, and they’re in charge of things. They’re not like the rest of us ‘deplorables,’ who are barely getting by on what we can earn in this de-industrializing society, and I think they just really don’t care about the average patient.”

IRS Loses Cases

AFP asked if she believes that unfettered immigration is contributing to this and other outbreaks.

“Oh, I think it definitely is,” she answered. “We have people coming into the country that are not screened medically in any way, and sometimes are deliberately dispersed throughout the country, and go to public schools and infect children with diseases to which the children have never been exposed before and they have no immunity.”

She continued: “That was probably responsible for outbreaks of hundreds of cases of the Enterovirus D68 (EV68) that sent a lot of American children to intensive care units. Some of them became paralyzed because it is a disease somewhat like polio to some people. This probably came in from Central America where it’s endemic in the population. It doesn’t usually make people [who live there] very sick because they have some immunity to it, but American children just don’t.”

As several California counties are offering free hepatitis A vaccine shots to the homeless in order to stem the tide of the outbreak, AFP asked Dr. Orient her opinion on the vaccinations, which are being almost forced on the homeless.

“I just think that mass imposition of any type of medical intervention is a very bad idea,” she said. “It’s contrary to our civil rights, and it’s also just a very imprudent idea, because a lot of times we don’t find out about the bad effects of the medical things we do until it’s too late.”

Dr. Orient warned further about vaccines.

“I think that people who deny that vaccines can have lifelong disabling, very serious complications is rampant,” she said. “Vaccine manufacturers have virtually absolute immunity for any type of liability, so they’re really quite protected, even if they lie and cover up or are negligent about doing safety studies.”

American Free Press asked if the elites had a more nefarious agenda.

“I think there are people who really want to destroy the United States of America—to destroy our economic and our military power—because we’re the biggest impediment to their ideal of a global regime,” she said. “I think the United States is in serious danger, existential hazard really, of loss of the freedom on which our prosperity depends, as well as a decent civilized life.”

Dr. Orient summarized her feelings on this disturbing issue.

“Large populations are using the streets and outdoor areas as a toilet,” she said. “There used to be punishment for merely spitting on the sidewalk. If we tolerate Third World hygiene standards we will have Third World diseases. We have got to break the chain of transmission by just cleanliness. We don’t have a vaccine for every disease that exists. We can’t vaccinate everybody for everything.”

Top-Tier Treason and the USS Liberty

In his new book, Remember the Liberty! Almost Sunk by Treason on the High Seas, Philip F. Nelson has documented U.S. treason at the highest levels of government in a planned false-flag operation that called for Israel’s high-seas slaughter of USS Liberty sailors on June 6, 1967.  

By S.T. Patrick

Phillip F. Nelson’s new book, Remember the Liberty! Almost Sunk by Treason on the High Seas,* seeks to out the American politicians responsible for the planning, execution, and cover-up of the Israeli attack on the USS Liberty in 1967. In tracing the planning of the June 8 attack back to 1965, Nelson has written a work that holds President Lyndon B. Johnson and Secretary of Defense Robert McNamara responsible.

In 1979 Liberty survivor James M. Ennes Jr. wrote the first full treatment concerning the Israeli assault on the unarmed U.S. naval ship. After the release of his book, Ennes pursued further research at the LBJ Library in Austin, Texas. Within that research, Ennes found a misfiled document that detailed the minutes of a meeting held by a “303 Committee” in April 1967. The 303 Committee was responsible for all covert CIA operations within the Johnson administration.

The 303 Committee consisted of CIA director Richard Helms, former ambassador to the Soviet Union Foy Kohler, chairman of the Joint Chiefs of Staff General Earle Wheeler, Deputy Secretary of Defense Cyrus Vance, and National Security Adviser Walt Rostow. Rostow also headed a separate White House group that consisted of Johnson’s most adamantly Zionist advisors.

McNamara was often used by LBJ as the key liaison and chief executioner of the covert operations birthed by the 303 Committee and the other groups.

The minutes of the 303 Committee meeting—held two months before the attack on the Liberty—referenced an operation called “Frontlet 615.” Operation Cyanide was found within the subparts of Frontlet 615. The 303 Committee used Frontlet 615 as a code name for the pending Six-Day War between Israel and Egypt. As planned, the war was scheduled to begin on June 15. The Americans had agreed to provide equipment, officer training, and the limited use of aircraft to the Israelis.

Operation Cyanide was a provocative false flag that called for an Israel Defense Force attack on a U.S. ship. The assault on the unarmed ship would use unmarked fighter jets so that the destruction could then be blamed on the Egyptians, and the Americans could enter the war on the side of Israel.

It was not the first time Johnson had dabbled in false-flag operations. Years earlier, he had tasked National Security Advisor McGeorge Bundy with “Plan 34A” in Vietnam. Buddy was charged with constructing a series of provocations that would cause the North Vietnamese to attack American destroyers (i.e., Gulf of Tonkin). Some historians cite Tonkin as the primary reason for Johnson’s 1964 win over Sen. Barry Goldwater (R-Ariz.).

In a decision that confounded LBJ, Israel began its war with Egypt 10 days early. The USS Liberty was rushed from its position off the horn of Africa to the Mediterranean Sea. The Liberty had been chosen as the victim of Operation Cyanide.

In Remember the Liberty! Nelson recalls the tense confusion and abandonment Admiral Lawrence Geis experienced as the Liberty was being attacked. Geis later relayed the tale to Chief Intelligence Officer David Lewis, who agreed not to reveal the information until Geis had died, which he did in 1987.

Geis explained to Lewis that Johnson had ordered two sorties of fighter jets recalled—one that had been en route to the Liberty ten minutes after the attack. Johnson had also recalled two A-4s, launched from the USS America within minutes, armed with nuclear weapons and headed for Cairo, Egypt.

McNamara called Geis and instructed him to recall the aircraft. “We’re not going to war over a few dead soldiers,” McNamara told Geis. McNamara, expecting the Liberty to sink within the hour, told Geis that he could order another sortie of fighter jets in 90 minutes. When the hour-and-a-half had passed, Geis prepared to order assistance. McNamara again instructed him to recall the order.

Geis demanded to speak to the president, who was standing next to McNamara. Johnson confirmed to Geis that he should “recall the wings.” He told Geis that he didn’t care if the Liberty sunk to the bottom of the Mediterranean. He was not going to embarrass his ally.

Upon assuming the presidency after the assassination of John F. Kennedy, Johnson had told Israeli Minister of Foreign Affairs Golda Meir in 1963, “You’ve lost a great friend, but you’ve found a better one.” He promised Ms. Meir that there would be no repeat of the Eisenhower incident of 1956.

Audio Interview: DAV Execs Not Changing Their Ways

News that the top dog at the Disabled American Veterans makes $600,000, astoundingly double what he made in 2011, has veterans angry.  With so many veterans living paycheck to paycheck and tens of thousands more living on the streets, an organization focused on helping disabled veterans get the VA support they’re due should prioritize its funding with those veterans in mind.

By Dave Gahary

When this reporter was summarily tossed out of the veterans’ charity, the Disabled American Veterans (DAV), in February 2014 for shining a light on the ungodly sums the officers of that 501(c)(4) organization were paying themselves, it seemed beyond reason that their incomes could climb much higher. Last month, however, when the DAV’s Internal Revenue Service Form 990 for 2016 was released on the organization’s website, the quaint belief that somehow greed could be contained was shown the door. In five short years, since this newspaper first analyzed DAV’s 2011 Form 990, the “leader” of that organization saw his income more than double, from $263,185 to $527,292.

Incredibly, a portion of his income, $225,450—over 40%—was classified as “retirement and other deferred compensation,” and is not taxed. In other words, while most Americans—especially disabled veterans—are living paycheck to paycheck, DAV’s head is paid so much that almost half of that income can be set aside for retirement and is not needed today.

Other highly compensated individuals employed by the charity also saw huge hikes in their pay over that same time period, though nowhere near what the top dog, Mississippi-born J. Marc Burgess, brought home. His pay is even more striking given the fact that the charity didn’t have such a great year: It brought in around $2 million less than the year before and still managed to lose around $12 million, that is, revenues less expenses. Never mind the fact that on any given night, there are tens of thousands of veterans who call the street their home.

IRS Loses Cases

The 1.3 million-member DAV, founded in 1920 to help disabled veterans of the U.S. armed forces— returning from World War I—and their families adapt to living with physical and mental disabilities, is chartered by Congress and headquartered in Cold Spring, Ky.

Every state in the union has a DAV department, including Washington, D.C. and Puerto Rico, and each of those has chapters associated with it. Currently, there are approximately 1,300 chapters across the country. The primary function of the DAV has been to serve as a veteran’s advocate for filing Veterans Administration (VA) disability claims.

Listen to AFP’s exclusive interview with Stephen I. Marcus, a former DAV member:

American Free Press interviewed 75-year-old, 100% disabled American veteran Steven I. Marcus, a former member of the DAV, for his views on the 2016 Form 990.

“I have a lot of friends who are active members of the DAV,” he began, “but on the local level, and they do good work in the local community with the veterans. But at the very top of the DAV, to me, they’re all bloodsuckers; they’re self-serving. They fly an airplane and they get guys like that actor, Danny Aiello, [who] goes on television. When I ran into Danny, because he doesn’t live that far from me, I told him, ‘You know, Danny, I love you as an actor, but somebody’s giving you bad news, because the Disabled American Veterans is a rip-off.’ ”

Marcus touched on the ongoing scandalous tragedy of veterans dying on VA waiting lists for healthcare while the DAV feeds at the gilded trough.

“These bloodsuckers take money; they fly a plane all over the country,” he bemoaned. “What the hell does that do for the disabled American veterans when guys wait in line and die? I think 20 veterans a day die waiting in line at the VA.”

Marcus commented upon the fact that so many veterans are homeless in this once-great nation, while organizations like the DAV never seem to tire of enriching themselves. “It’s totally disgraceful that we do this, really and truly,” he said.

“These are people, patriots, who served the country honorably. Remember, when we raised our right hand, we swore to uphold the Constitution, and if necessary we would give our life for our country. But at the same time we expected that if we got hurt we’d be taken care of. And they’re not being taken care of. It’s a disgrace.”

Marcus directed his criticism at those who are at the top of the DAV.

“These people are self-serving; all they’re interested in is money,” Marcus continued. “If you [want to] help veterans, why don’t you give back all your money, and give it to the veterans who need the help?”

AFP asked Mr. Marcus to reflect on the fact that Burgess’s annual income has not only exceeded that of the president of the United States but should surpass the $1 million mark in a few years.

“If I sound sarcastic, I am,” he said. “If I sound bitter, I am. I don’t even want to admit anymore that I belonged to the DAV at one time. As far as I’m concerned, the only thing disabled about them is their ability to take care of the people.”

A South African’s Warning

Activist wraps up six-month tour of America to bring attention to genocide

By Dave Gahary

Springton, Pa. – To hear from a 46-year-old South African that his country is on the verge of complete collapse and the organization he represents exists solely to prepare for a civil war between blacks and whites, you may think Simon Roche (pronounced “rosh”) is a bit over the top. Once he makes his case, however, it’s apparent where his sense of alarm arises from and why he fears that America is careening toward the same fate.

SINGLE MALE over 50, Polish-Italian, non-smoker, in good shape, articulate,
attentive seeking a single female, slender, intelligent, down-to-earth, who’s
looking for love and willing to relocate. Serious calls 727-492-8164.

In his last interview with this newspaper before heading back to his country after a six-month tour here, Roche discussed his background and what the organization he’s affiliated with, Suidlanders (pronounced “sightlahnders”), is attempting to do.

Suidlanders, as Roche told this reporter at the Aug. 26 conference of Don Wassall’s The Nationalist Times at the Springtown Rod & Gun Club, and in a Sept. 1 one-hour telephone interview, “is the world’s largest non-state civil defense organization . . . constituted under international law.”

Roche and his compatriots are, as previously noted, “preparing for a civil war in South Africa, which is something that has been promised to the white people by black leaders in South Africa on many occasions.”

He explained, “Our leader, the founder of our organization, had the foresight, some years ago, to begin to prepare in this manner, in a legal, nonmilitant, non-militaristic, non-seditious, non-insurrectionist manner, to protect civilian noncombatants . . . to provide a civil defense solution to non-combatants in the event of the civil war.”

That leader, Gustav Müller, was in the South African Defense Force in military intelligence, “so he has a background in risk analysis and scenario planning,” said Roche. “He was in the Defense Force at a time when we were fighting nine countries on the borders of South Africa and at a time when there was massive instability internally; the African National Congress’s armed wing was terrorizing people.”

“Gustav was in a situation where he was required—every day of his life—to think very hard,
to analyze, and assist . . . how things were going to play out, what was happening next, what intelligence could be produced from the information on the ground,” explained Roche. “And that gave him an insight into how things might transpire in South Africa. He believed that things would end very badly once the African National Congress [ANC] took power, as they did on the 27th of April 1994. Then he sort of bided his time for a while, observing how things were playing out, and it became clearer and clearer to him over time that the [ANC], as a communist entity, was leading South Africa down a path of destruction.”

Although a white man, Roche is not of Dutch ancestry, which were the original white settlers to South Africa. As the story goes, one of the Dutch East India Company’s ships had been stranded in 1648 and the castaways “were so impressed with the natural resources of the country” that they launched an expedition four years later for a permanent settlement.

“I come from Irish ancestry,” explained Roche, “so I’m not part of that portion of the white people of South Africa who have been there since April 6, 1652, when the first permanent [white] settlement was established in South Africa. I am fourth generation Irish, of Irish stock, and my forebears came to South Africa in the late 1800s.”

Around 80% of South Africa’s 55 million inhabitants are black, while whites comprise a mere 8.1% of the total. The majority of the working population, however, is out of work. “The official unemployment figures—which are generally regarded as understated—are 38.1%,” explained Roche. “In fact, an international firm has just released [a report] in the past couple of days that alludes to an unemployment rate of something like . . . 56.3%. We have recently been downgraded, that is to say, South Africa’s sovereign bond rating, has been downgraded by Moody’s, Fitch, and Standard & Poor’s, to junk status.”

The collapsing economy and the hate pouring from the lips of South Africa’s black “leaders” have
created some horrendous fallout. “We have amongst the highest rates of murder and rape in the world generally, across the board,” said Roche. “And the murder of white farmers by black people in South Africa is the highest rate of murder of any city, anywhere in the world, by a country mile. The murder of whites generally by black people is also a phenomenally high figure.

IRS Loses Cases

It’s something like 1,370% greater than the murder rate of all Americans, regardless of what race they
are and by which race they are murdered. And these indicators, coming as they do, in tandem,
with the promises that we’ve received from black leaders, particularly over the past year, of a race-based civil war to wipe out all whites, is fairly persuasive.”

To highlight how stark the South African murder rate is, Roche provided a comparison. “To give you an idea, the murders of whites between the first and the 14th of February this year, inclusive, was greater than the number of murders committed in the Republic of Ireland—which has a population of a similar size to the white population in South Africa—over the past 30 years,” he said. “Over 74,000 white people have been murdered by black people since the beginning of this new South African ‘rainbow nation’ multiracial democracy.”

Roche blames others—not just the blacks who have been incited to murder whites—for the damage done to his country.

“We had a certain dialectic rammed down our throats by the international news media, the globalist news media, the liberal elites, and the academic elites, for about 40 years, who’ve said that apartheid is bad; those who support apartheid, the white South Africans, are bad people; that the blacks are innocent victims who can do no wrong; that the [ANC] is without peer; that Nelson Mandela was a pure soul,” he said. “Many white people, many conservative white people—I count some in my own family in that group—began to believe that everything that they thought, every commonsense conclusion that they’d drawn by themselves in their lives, was false, and that it was time to be harmonious and integrated.”

Roche touched on some of the parallels between South Africa and the U.S.

“We . . . have seen what happens when you put the liberals in charge,” he said. “You guys—with all due respect—should know this yourselves, because you have certain litmus tests. You’re able to see what happens when the liberals run a city like Chicago or Detroit or Baltimore or Atlanta into the ground for 40, 50, or 60 years.”

“What happened in South Africa and what is happening in the U.S.A.,” he continued, “are, for all intents and purposes, identical. The media, the liberal elites, and the academic elites are persuading Americans to adopt their views, which are completely anti-American. They’ve taken the U.S.A. and sort of twisted it, by five degrees at a time, to adopt values which were never part of the core identity of America. And they persuaded you that this is how you always thought. It’s unbelievable.”

AUDIO INTERVIEW & ARTICLE: Texas Maverick Runs for Congress

Texas native and Libertarian congressional hopeful Nicholas Landholt pays no income taxes and pushes for state militias to defend against tyranny. Landholt sat down for an interview with Dave Gahary to discuss his congressional campaign and related issue.

By Dave Gahary

Nicholas Landholt is a man on a mission. Born in San Antonio, Texas in 1955, Nick served in the U.S. Navy for 10 years, where he met his wife, and has been married for 36 years. Landholt ran for Congress in 2016 on the Libertarian Party of Texas ticket last year and did surprisingly well, and he’s gearing up for another run next year.

American Free Press sat down with Landholt—whom some libertarians call “The Militia Guy”—for an exclusive interview on his upbringing and his ideas to get America back to the people it was founded for.

Click on the image below for AFP’s exclusive interview with Nicholas Landholt.

“I almost went into the seminary,” Landholt began, “but my dad was seeing some of the uproar that was happening in the Catholic Church, so he thought it best that I not go into the seminary where I could possibly lose my faith. I sort of did during high school and college anyway.”

Landholt’s dad, who—like his mom—had a great impact on his life, had another idea.

“My dad thought it would be good for me to get into the military and to kind of grow up, you might say,” he said.

“In 1996, I stopped paying and filing [federal] income taxes,” he said, “but I stayed underneath the radar because I had three boys and a wife that I was supporting. But it was in the last five years—because the boys are grown now—that I said it’s time to have a coming-out party. And whether it’s shaming patriots or so-called “Christians” into doing what we’re supposed to be doing—living the Gospel and taking on the enemies of Christ the King—we need to do something quickly. So I want people to know I’m for real and I’m willing to take the heat, but I need a support team behind me; I don’t wanna be charging up the hill on my own.”

Landholt recounted his anti-tax/pro-militia congressional campaign in Texas’s 11th congressional district.

“I filed to run in December 2015, and it was a few months later that I started to get into the whole militia aspect and the IRS,” he said. “I don’t know if those were just two hot issues that the Libertarians did not want to address or not, but . . . I was basically kind of left out there on my own. So not having run a campaign, not knowing rules, I just kind of let it come to me, and it never did come to me.”

Although he had no campaign contributions, he did quite well at the polls.

“In 2016, running a one-man campaign with no bank account, I still got over 23,000 votes,” he said. “My campaign was against 10-year incumbent Mike Conaway, [a] RINO.”

A RINO, or “Republican in Name Only,” is a term frequently used to describe “insufficiently conservative” Republicans.

Kenneth Michael “Mike” Conaway—in office since Jan. 3, 2005—Landholt explained, “has a ‘Liberty Score’ of ‘F’ with Conservative Review,” a group that ranks politicians along a conservative scale.

“[Conaway] got just over 200,000 votes,” Nick said, in a district of about 750,000 residents.

Landholt figures there are at least another 200,000 voters who never went to their polling place. The 11th congressional district is very rural, encompassing 29 counties.

“So there are 29 county sheriffs,” Landholt explained, “[who] could be educated on the income tax and why they should be keeping the IRS agents from harassing taxpayers who choose to actually follow the IRS regulations regarding income tax.”

“It was a very winnable race,” Landholt continued, “and I think the fact that I got 23,000 votes without basically doing anything kind of tells the level of disgust that Texas voters have with status-quo politics. We need resources, so that’s why I’m looking for a campaign manager who knows what they’re doing and can go from there.”

IRS Loses Cases

Landholt explained his views on why Americans are not required to pay federal income taxes.

“I always tell people we’re distinguishing here between income taxes and other taxes,” he explained. “Obviously, I pay taxes; I pay my fair share. You pay taxes almost all the time: sales tax, gas taxes etc. But federal income taxes, I’m not a federal citizen. I don’t work for an employer who contracts with the federal government. And that’s kind of in a nutshell what it boils down to. But I don’t ever advise somebody to just stop paying taxes; that’s a decision you’re gonna have to make on your own.”


“The Preamble of the Constitution begins ‘We the People,’ meaning the People are the authority over the Constitution. And it is not a stretch to say that the first 13 words of the Second Amendment—‘A well-regulated Militia being necessary to the security of a free State’—are the most important words in the Constitution. The People ARE the Militia, and patriots can see that our Founders were telling us ‘No Militia, No Free State.’ ”

AFP asked the purpose of the militia as it relates to his views on the federal income tax and if it would be used to physically fight the federal government.

“No, [Constitutional] militia is a defensive situation, and it’s not just fighting, but militias can be used for natural disasters—Hurricane Katrina and those kind of things. Instead of having FEMA, National Guard troops, the local militarized police forces going up and down the street knocking on doors and taking weapons away, you’d have local people who are militia helping out during situations.”

Landholt continued. “The purpose of the militia is threefold: to execute the laws of the Union, repel invasions, and suppress insurrections,” he began. “The money powers are not going to give up their investment—and we’re talkin’ over a hundred years—without a fight, and of course, they use the police state as their weapon of choice to fight Christian patriots. The IRS, the money powers, they’re not gonna go away quietly, so I presume that we’re going to need militias for defensive purposes.”

Landholt harkened back to the origins of this once-great national federation.

“As the Founding Fathers said,” he stated, “if you read between the lines—the lines being the first 13 words of the Second Amendment—‘a well-regulated Militia being necessary to the security of a free State.’ Reading between the lines, the Founders were saying, ‘No militia, no free state.’ Well, that’s what I’m trying to get across not only to voters but to the youth, because the youth have no future if they don’t get involved and help us turn things around.”

AUDIO INTERVIEW & ARTICLE: Jewish Groups Shut Down Canadian Newspaper


Podcast Play Button

According to the Toronto Star, Canada’s version of the United States Postal Service, Canada Post, was ordered by Judy Foote, the minister of Public Services and Procurement Canada, to stop the distribution of Your Ward News, called “anti-Semitic” and “racist” by its critics.

“I have issued an interim prohibitory order to this individual, who is its editor-in-chief, advising him that he can no longer use Canada Post to spread this offensive material,” read the statement.

Your Ward News describes itself as an “anti-Marxist publication” and is distributed for free to more than 300,000 Toronto homes. The newspaper “often includes articles and illustrations of religious caricatures, among other controversial features.”

While Jewish groups lauded the clearly illegal decision, Dr. James Sears, the editor of the paper, appealed the order and is gearing up for a fight.

“Judge Judy has violated multiple sections of the Charter of Rights and Freedoms, and I will for sure be lawyering up for battle,” Sears wrote to the Star, who said that shutting down the “only ultra-right wing satirical” newspaper in Canada violates free speech laws.

“If we were spreading hate or libel of a criminal nature, we would have been charged a very long time ago,” Sears stated.

Sears isn’t in this fight alone.

The Canadian Civil Liberties Association, the Canadian equivalent to the American Civil Liberties Union, wrote to the minister to express their “serious concerns” about the decision.

AUDIO INTERVIEW & ARTICLE: Black Mob Attack in Kansas a Cautionary Tale for Whites—Part 1

Randy Robbins reached out to AMERICAN FREE PRESS on June 11 when he left a comment on the AFP website under a May 28, 2012 article entitled “Media Covers Up Black Hate Crimes Against Whites” by Pete Papaherakles which proves, in painful detail, how the mainstream media almost completely ignores black-on-white crime, but spends days, weeks and sometimes months on the comparatively minuscule numbers of white-on-black crime.

Mr. Robbins explained in his comment that his daughter, Lindsey Gann, who coaches a girls 14-and-under softball team in Topeka, Kansas, “had confronted several children for hitting and bullying other younger kids,” which prompted several black parents to make racial comments and threaten to attack her.

Black Mob Attacks on Whites Continue Across America

By Dave Gahary

While the corporate-controlled mainstream media continues to use events to fan the flames of non-existent racism, they continue to ignore clearly racist events that show whites are being targeted, most times randomly, by feral packs of blacks. This, coupled with the overt messages of support for the black thug culture regularly spewing from the mouth of United States President Barack Hussein Obama, has placed every white across this once-great nation in immediate peril.

Randy Robbins reached out to AMERICAN FREE PRESS on June 11 when he left a comment on the AFP website under a May 28, 2012 article entitled “Media Covers Up Black Hate Crimes Against Whites” by Pete Papaherakles which proves, in painful detail, how the mainstream media almost completely ignores black-on-white crime, but spends days, weeks and sometimes months on the comparatively minuscule numbers of white-on-black crime.

Mr. Robbins explained in his comment that his daughter, Lindsey Gann, who coaches a girls 14-and-under softball team in Topeka, Kansas, “had confronted several children for hitting and bullying other younger kids,” which prompted several black parents to make racial comments and threaten to attack her. He explained what happened to Lindsey the following evening in his Internet post.

Last night, two adult black females and one juvenile viciously stalked and attacked her in the parking lot, as approximately 20 blacks cheered them on and yelled racial slurs. After slamming her in her truck door, they drug her around by the hair, and bashed her head on the truck repeatedly. Lindsey was transported to the hospital by ambulance.

This reporter reached out to Mr. Robbins via email to ask if he or Lindsey’s husband, Jeremy, would like to do a taped audio interview for the newspaper to help expose this travesty, to which he quickly agreed, as neither the local police nor media were interested in exposing yet another black mob attack on whites.


Lindsey and Jeremy Gann

AFP conducted an exclusive interview with Jeremy Gann, a married 33-year-old self-employed master electrician from Topeka, with a 13-year-old daughter and a 10-year-old son, who also coaches kids’ baseball. Ironically, Jeremy and Lindsey’s niece and nephew are interracial, whom they have helped raise.

Jeremy explained what prompted the blacks to attack.

“My wife went over and handled a bullying situation between kids that was going on at my baseball game in the dugout,” he began. “Rocks being thrown, names being called. My daughter was actually physically hit, and that’s when my wife decided to go over and say ‘this needs to stop right now.’”

The following night, Friday, June 10, at the end of the softball game, as they walked to their cars, a pack of blacks began hurling racial slurs at the team.

Before they could get all the ball gear into their vehicle, Lindsey was attacked.

“Four girls ran around the backside of my truck,” and attacked Lindsey, explained Jeremy.


While Lindsey was being viciously attacked, Jeremy was confronted by a black man bigger than him.

“He’s in my face calling me racial slurs and threatening me,” explained Jeremy, “so I didn’t turn my back on him; I couldn’t turn my back on him.”

AFP asked what slurs he used.

“What are you, a bitch, you fucking cracker? What you wanna do now, you honkey?”

This prevented him from assisting Lindsey.

“One of [the girls] jumped through the driver’s side of my truck with my daughter in the truck, screaming,” he continued.

“Not only was it the pulling of her hair, scratching her face and her arms, slamming her head in the truck,” explained Jeremy, “the mother of the girls slammed the truck door on her.”

“While the attack was going on all these little girls kept saying was ‘we’re minors, you can’t do nothing about us,’ explained Jeremy. “They were all sayin’ it.”

Lindsey wasn’t the only one attacked.

“One of the little girls actually slapped me in the face and knocked my glasses off my head,” he said.

Jeremy, who stands 6’5” and weighs 200 pounds, wasn’t only prevented from assisting Lindsey by the large black male.

“Ten other [black] people were ready to pounce if I made a move,” he explained. “I didn’t know if they were armed.”

“I was pinned down and felt trapped,” Jeremy explained choking down tears.

“Honestly, it’s a pretty shitty feeling when you can’t protect your wife and your kids,” Jeremy cried, “and that’s what’s killing me the most right now.”

Besides the scratches and bruises Lindsey suffered, an injury from an automobile accident she sustained five years back that left her with 10 screws and a plate in her neck has been seriously aggravated, just as it was healing.



On the field, law enforcement also read from the politically correct, reverse-racism playbook and refused to do their jobs, even failing to assign a case number to the incident.

Topeka Police detained but released those who attacked the Ganns.

“None of our independent witnesses were even interviewed by the cops,” Jeremy explained. “They took my information and that was it.”

While Lindsey was at the hospital, the police and hospital staff also failed to do their jobs.

Neither “the police officers nor the emergency room staff took photos of any of the injuries,” explained Jeremy, “so we took it upon ourselves to get contact and witness information.”

“We’ve got 14 witnesses; five adults and nine children,” said Jeremy.

The perpetrators in this attack are no strangers to violence.

“This is not the first incident they’ve had with this exact group of people,” Jeremy explained. “Three years ago there was a controversial call on the field, and they blocked the umpires, the whole team, they stood in a crowd, and they blocked their vehicles at the field and they did not let them leave.”

Instead of cracking down on this display of incivility and lawlessness, public authorities in Topeka “gave those who wished to destroy, space to do that as well,” as Baltimore, Maryland Mayor Stephanie C. Rawlings-Blake stated during the 2015 riots in her city.

“These people were allowed back to the ballparks after this,” Jeremy said. “I don’t know how.”

Black-on-white attacks in Topeka are nothing new, nor are they new to Lindsey.

“This isn’t the first attack she’s actually been in,” Jeremy explained. “In high school, there was an attack.”

There was a mass of black people picking on Lindsey’s younger brother.

“She stood up for him and fortunately she didn’t sustain any serious injuries,” he said. “I think one of them got a mechanical pencil stab in.”

Topeka, the state capital founded in 1854, with a population of around 127,000, has followed the downward trajectory of countless towns and cities across this once-great nation, where the majority white working population has been replaced by minorities and immigrants with ideas diametrically opposed to the work ethic that caused this country to once thrive, resulting in “white flight.”

Where in 1970 whites were almost 90% of the population, they now make up fewer than 70%. Blacks are around 11% and Hispanics are almost 15% of the population, but that number is advancing rapidly. Two months ago, Kansas Governor Samuel Dale “Sam” Brownback withdrew from accepting Syrian refugees after the Obama administration failed to provide security information on them.

The Ganns’s children were affected by the attack and are staying at a friend’s house.

“They haven’t been here much since the whole thing happened,” Jeremy explained. “They’re totally traumatized.

“My son had a baseball game Saturday morning and he actually had a breakdown when he got on the field,” said Jeremy. “That tore me up pretty bad.”

On June 22, Lindsey’s dad Randy relayed a story to this reporter about how his grandson is still affected by the vicious attack.

“I was heartbroken last week when I was there. My 10-year-old grandson Brayden, slept with me in the living room. He went to his camping supplies and brought in a hunting knife which he slept with. I set it aside after he fell asleep, only to find him clutching it the next morning. It broke my heart.”

“This is the last thing you’d expect when you’re spending your little bit of extra time with your kids at the ball field and an attack like this happens,” Jeremy lamented.

The Ganns, who started up a GoFundMe page to help with medical expenses, plan on visiting the Topeka Police to gain access to any film footage from security cameras at the school.

“Tomorrow’s there’s an executive board meeting with the baseball and softball association to decide what to do,” said Jeremy.

War Hawk Senator Lindsey Graham Attracts Media Coverage to Bilderberg

By Mark Anderson

While attendance at Bilderberg by sitting members of Congress has become rather rare in recent years, leave it to super hawkish neoconservative Senator Lindsay Olin Graham (R-S.C.) to be the only current United States legislator officially listed as a participant at the exclusive annual confab this year in Dresden, Germany.

This AMERICAN FREE PRESS writer, tracking Graham’s whereabouts through the Senate’s Periodical Press staff, found that Graham didn’t depart on the overnight flight to Germany until Friday afternoon on June 10, meaning he’s only able to attend the last two days of Bilderberg—June 11-12. He cast floor votes on June 8 and June 9, the latter of which was Bilderberg’s first day of the four-day meeting. At first, there was some question as to whether Graham would actually jet to Germany at all, given the Senate’s busy sessions June 10, as well as on Monday, June 13.

Yet, on the day he left, he was all pumped up about increasing defense spending, breathlessly proclaiming to the press, “I’m making defense spending push ‘my No. 1 reason to live.’” And while that’s certainly notable—given the cutting-edge defense technology company people and current and former military figures who attend Bilderberg and may want to brainstorm defense plans with the Graham—there is also a widespread belief that Graham ventured to the 62nd Bilderberg meeting to brainstorm on defeating the GOP candidacy of Donald J. Trump.

To top it all off, thanks to Graham’s wanderlust, the mainstream Kansas City Star (KCS) played a significant role in breaking the stony Bilderberg silence that the U.S. press usually practices by posting a grabbing headline and respectable story online, specifically about Graham’s “excellent adventure” in Germany.

Meanwhile, however, the key Capitol Hill newspapers that claim to watch every move of U.S. lawmakers (The Hill, Politico, and Roll Call), as of the afternoon of Friday, June 10, apparently hadn’t run a word on Graham’s trip. AFP is in touch with them to see what their reporting plans may be, if they’ll be civil enough to respond to the inquiries.

In stark contrast, the Star blared that above-noted headline with three sub-headlines in its June 9 online edition, which could have been written by AFP. The main headline was worded: “Lindsey Graham to join global elite at the world’s most secretive annual meeting,” followed by “Graham will join European, North American political and business leaders in Germany,” “Topics will include U.S. election and Britain’s referendum on leaving European Union” and “The senator’s outspoken criticism of Donald Trump echoes many Europeans’ worries.”

In a June 10 audio interview, hosted by Dave Gahary, this writer and the host compared notes and determined that even Time magazine online this year had broken the traditional Bilderberg mainstream-media silence, as had some other unexpected orthodox outlets via online reporting, including the British Telegraph, the UK’s Daily Mail, U.S.-based Brietbart News Network and, thankfully, The Post and Courier of Charleston, South Carolina in Graham’s home state, where viable opponents have tried with no avail so far to unseat Graham.


Perhaps coincidentally, by The Post and Courier’s June 10 story appeared online three hours after this writer sent that newspaper the news tip that Graham was headed to Bilderberg.

“Graham, who ran for president [for the 2016 GOP nomination race] last year, gained national exposure for being the only Republican contender to slam President Barack Obama’s Iraq war strategy while actually offering his own alternative. Since dropping out of the race at the end of 2015, he has been something of a voice of conscience for the Republican Party struggling to reconcile with its unconventional presidential nominee, Donald Trump,” Post and Courier reporter Emma Dumain wrote.

So it could be said that Graham is “stinking up” the posh Dresden hotel where he will meet with Bilderberg, by bringing a boatload of unusual press coverage with him, however unwittingly. This will help make Bilderberg more of a household word and perhaps make it easier to demand that the internationalist cabal be dissolved someday.

From there, this writer is identifying and reaching out to other major media in Senator Graham’s home state of South Carolina, besides the Charleston paper, to see if they have, or if they will, report on their “golden boy’s” foreign junket to Germany.

It’d indeed be interesting to see Graham get “dressed down” the way that former Bilderberg Steering Committee member—British MP Kenneth Clarke—was taken to task for his Bilderberg collusion by feisty late Labour Party MP Michael Meacher on the House of Commons floor, just as Bilderberg 2013 in the UK was starting.

Interestingly, Clarke resigned from the Steering Committee that very day, June 5, 2013.

With his characteristic messianic 10-mile gaze, Graham’s nonstop bellicose speeches and stances for the never-ending “war on terror,” and his flippant, casual attitude about civil liberties and constitutional integrity, make him an especially deserving recipient of a similarly serious tongue-lashing on the Senate floor for attending Bilderberg. While the odds seem slim at this writing for such a delightful dose of justice, we’ll see what may happen.

Bilderbergers Meeting in Dresden

• Official topics list masks larger agenda.

By Mark Anderson

As Bilderberg 2016 convenes, taking place June 9-12 in Dresden, Germany at the heavily barricaded Hotel Taschenbergpalais Kempinski Dresden, it’s important to note that— as this AMERICAN FREE PRESS writer learned at a 2013 Brookings Institution meeting, just before that year’s Bilderberg-UK meeting—a European Union (EU) army for a “United States of Europe” has been on the menu of the world planners in Bilderberg and associated organizations.

Bilderberg 2016 Head

Notably, the Bilderbergers’ media outlet, whose operators never reveal their names or affiliations, announced around June 6 in their usual limited, last-minute fashion the list of Bilderberg 2016 attendees and their assumed topics. Their press release, including a shorter-than-usual list of topics, along with the confirmed participants, can be accessed here.

For the record, their ten stated 2016 topics, some of which are amusingly vague and generic, are:

  1. Current events
  2. China
  3. Europe: migration, growth, reform, vision, unity
  4. Middle East
  5. Russia
  6. U.S. political landscape, economy: growth, debt, reform
  7. Cyber security
  8. Geo-politics of energy and commodity prices
  9. Precariat and middle class
  10. Technological innovation

Meanwhile, however, accounts of joint military exercises involving British and French soldiers this spring in south England represent the most recent evidence yet that the development of an EU military force has come off of the drawing board and is emerging as a reality.

The Franco-UK exercises, dubbed Exercise Griffin Strike, took place in late April. They involved the swapping of officers wherein French commanders directed British troops and vice versa, according to Brian Gerrish, who served 20 years in the Royal Navy and co-produces the online investigative news and commentary site, UK Column.

The broader issue here is that the upcoming vote in Britain on exiting the EU, or Brexit, as it is called, will be rendered moot, since a pending EU army—with requirements for British soldiers to take part in that army—undercuts a successful UK vote to separate from the EU.

Brexit, of course, is philosophically opposed by the Bilderberg group’s core leadership and their brethren at the Brookings Institution, in the Council on Foreign Relations, at the CFR-related Chicago Council on Global Affairs and scores of similar think tanks in the U.S. and abroad—and in the G7 and G20.

Brookings—whose scholars regularly attend the highly secretive Bilderberg meetings that bring together bought-off editors, various ministers, royalty, bankers, energy barons, high-tech gurus and others—also reported in 2013 that a “fiscal union” to centralize the EU’s taxing, budgeting, and spending, is a goal.

The G7’s just-concluded 2016 meeting in Japan provides yet another glimpse into Bilderberg’s outlook, as AFP’s late Bilderberg hound James P. Tucker Jr. often said.

Right on cue, a G7 declaration issued immediately thereafter calls for worldwide taxation. In so doing, the G7 ministers referred to the G20, which, as AFP reported, recently met in Washington and warmly welcomed a report calling for a world-taxation grid, from which no one can hide. The G7 declaration comes in the wake of this AFP writer’s report on Bilderberg’s linkage to the Panama Papers in a gambit to exploit the tax-evasion revelations to fool the public into supporting a new world-wide taxation system.

The G7 officially stated: “To restore public trust in tax systems by enhancing transparency of tax information, we reaffirm G20’s call on all relevant countries, including all financial centers and jurisdictions, to implement the standard on automatic exchange of information by [the] committed deadline and to sign the Multilateral Convention, as well as the request to the [Organization for Economic Cooperation and Development] to establish . . . ‘objective criteria to identify non-cooperative jurisdictions with respect to tax transparency.’ ”

The G7-Bilderberg conduit, while opposing Brexit (according to the G7’s post-Japan declaration), is sparing no expense to “reaffirm our commitment to keep our markets open and to fight all forms of protectionism [tariffs and other helpful sovereign tools]. . . . We encourage trade liberalization . . . through regional trade agreements including the Trans-Pacific Partnership (TPP), the Japan-EU Economic Partnership Agreement (EPA), the Transatlantic Trade and Investment Partnership (TTIP) and the Comprehensive Economic and Trade Agreement (CETA).”

Whatever topics for discussion might pop up on Bilderberg’s so-called official agenda released to the press this year—many of which are suspect—the broader topics named here represent the long-term transnational integration scheme that’s always “on the agenda” and needs to be exposed and defeated, especially when the Trans-Pacific and Transatlantic trade traps come up for approval in Congress.



The Bilderberg group is a highly secretive organization of European and North American elites from big business, big media, politics, banking, and other sectors.

The Bilderberg Meetings, which were started in 1954, occur annually at only the most posh hotels or resorts in Europe or North America. The entire resort is closed to the public and real reporters. A large contingent of armed private security and police represent a show of force to ward off and if necessary shoot any “un-invitees” who try to enter. Deploringly, select members of the press who are invited have pledged not to report on the conferences.

Whether in their private or public capacity, American public office holders (as well as influential U.S. private citizens in general) who meet like this behind closed doors with foreign policymakers (where Bilderberg admits no meeting records are kept) are committing a felony, according to U.S. laws—mainly the Logan Act.

According to British professor Richard Aldrich, the Central Intelligence Agency helped organize and fund the first meeting in 1954 (with some Ford Foundation help). From there, Bilderberg has maintained a strong hand in European consolidation and other internationalist schemes. AFP’s late publisher Willis Carto often said Bilderberg represents hard proof that elites, including elected officials, undemocratically gather and conspire to plan, formulate or influence policy, directly and/or indirectly.
