Mae Brussell

secretly controlled – “…In 1964, Ms. Brussell paid $86 for a copy of the voluminous Warren Commission report of the Kennedy assassination and began a cross index of its facts and findings. That launched 25 years of daily investigation into political murders, Nazis, mind control, the Vatican, secret societies, espionage, organized crime, terrorism and hidden governments. During her career, Ms. Brussell contended that the United States was secretly controlled by an elite group of 5,000 powerful men who would stop at nothing to maintain that control. On her radio show, which was broadcast on Monday evenings for 11 years on Carmel’s KLRB and six years on listener- supported KAZU in Pacific Grove, Ms. Brussell named names and spouted facts in rapid-fire style. Then, in her gravelly monotone, she urged listeners to ponder the links. The program was syndicated to a half-dozen stations around the country and hundreds of followers also subscribed to her tapes and bibliographies. “The irony is that if she were alive today, I’m sure she would find a conspiracy behind her own death,” said Paul Krassner, editor and publisher of the Realist and co-founder of the Yippie movement. The Realist, now a satirical newsletter, was the first magazine to publish Ms. Brussell. “I thought she was an American hero,” Krassner said. “We should look upon her as a role model for not accepting things that are spoon-fed to us, not accepting it automatically as the truth.” Ms. Brussell left the air in March after receiving a death threat she took seriously. She told police an anonymous caller said he would “see you’re never going to be on the radio again,” and vowed to come fully armed to her home “to blow your head off…” (Conspiracy Theorist Mae Brussell Dies)

fascist networks – “…There had been prolonged controversy about how many shots were fired the day Kennedy was killed. The President’s wounds, nicks on the limousine and curb, and other bullet evidence indicated quite a few. But the Warren Commission concluded there were only three. It took the testimony of spectators in Dealy Plaza who said they only heard three. It never considered the possibility that silencer-fitted guns were fired. When Clay Shaw was arrested by Jim Garrison the news was of particular interest to the Italian newspaper Paesa Sera. It followed up with a story that Shaw belonged to a cover organization in Rome named Centro Mondiale Commerciale (CMC). Its location was frequently moved, its presidents rotated; its modus operandi altered. CMC included Italian fascists, elements of the European paramilitary right, the CIA, and the U.S. Defense Department. There were major shareholders with banks located in Switzerland, Miami, Basel and other major cities. CMC had been formed in 1961, one year after Kennedy was elected. Its principals had worked with fascist networks established after World War II. The board of directors numbered Ferenc Nagy, a former Hungarian premier who led that country’s Anti-Communist Countrymen’s Party in exile. J. Edgar Hoover brought Nagy to the United States, where there were numerous Gehlen-supported emigre organizations. On August 18, 1951, the Saturday Evening Post pictured Nagy with Czech, Pole, Hungarian and Russian exiles under the heading: “They Want Us To Go to War Right Now.” On November 22, 1963 Nagy was living in Dallas…” (The Nazi Connection to the John F. Kennedy Assassination)

too many discrepancies – “…People sometimes wonder how an ordinary housewife like me could get so interested in the John F. Kennedy assassination. But nothing just happens. There has to be a time when you begin to think and feel an emotional climate of caring about people, a nurturing place where you give a damn. If you repress your children, slap them, ignore them, dump them in front of the TV, go away and leave them with strangers, you are not nurturing them to be sympathetic to other people. That’s where my head was when Kennedy was assassinated. I was worried about my children and what sort of society we were living in where this murder could take place. “I didn’t believe the official reports, because there were too many discrepancies. I was taking the morning and evening papers then; I also had a number of magazine subscriptions. I clipped and saved articles from the day Kennedy died. Gradually, I increased my newspaper subscriptions to include such papers as the New York Times and the Washington Post. Now I take eight newspapers a day. I get a better perspective on what is happening all over the country. Stories that are left out of one paper often get into another one. “In September, 1964, the Warren Commission Report came out, and I read it very carefully. Lee Harvey Oswald interested me. Twenty-three adjectives were used to describe him in the Warren Report. They said he had no friends, no meaningful relationships, couldn’t hold a job, and so on. But the evidence all pointed in the opposite direction. So I bought the twenty-six volumes of the Warren Commission hearings and began studying them…” (About Women…)

freedom fighters – “…The CIA’s charter only provides for intelligence gathering abroad while the FBI’s work is supposedly intelligence gathering within the USA. But during the Sixties and Seventies, both agencies worked inside the country targeting mostly non-violent activists for peace and civil rights. “Operation Chaos” was the CIA’s program to destabilize the New Left and COINTELPRO (Counterintelligence Program) was the name of the FBI’s goon squad. Although both agencies have Congressional oversight committees, they are in name only and a total waste of tax money. In the Eighties, under the weight of much evidence of wrongdoing by COINTELPRO, the FBI claimed to have disbanded the program and the then director promised to never do such illegal work again. Yet in May 1990, two “Earth First” environmentalists, Judi Bari and Darryl Cherney, were badly injured by a car bomb which the FBI was quick to claim was their own that detonated accidentally. It took Bari and Cherney twelve years to win a lawsuit against the FBI who many of us believe planted the bomb. Forgive me for digressing again. My purpose here is to introduce you to Mae Brussell via her website. Her work may be more relevant now than in her heyday. Like those of many other freedom fighters throughout history, the ghost of Mae Brussell will never rest till justice is served. And as Emile Zola wrote in J’Accuse, “Truth is on the march and nothing can stop it…When truth is buried in the earth, it accumulates there, and assumes so mighty an explosive power that, on the day it bursts forth, it hurls everything into the air…” (Mae Brussell Lives!)
