From Wayne Madsen ReportJune 20-22, 2014 – SPECIAL REPORT. FBI killed Franklin scandal investigator
WMR can exclusively report that it was the Federal Bureau of Investigation that placed a bomb on the private airplane that killed state of Nebraska chief investigator Gary Caradori and his 6-year old son “AJ” on July 11, 1990. Caradori had been hired by the Nebraska unicameral legislature to investigate allegations that a number of Nebraska youth had been sexually abused and transported over state lines in a scandal centered around the Franklin Credit Union, headed by rising GOP African-American star Lawrence King.
A very knowledgeable source involved with what became known as the “Franklin Scandal” told WMR that Caradori flew to Chicago ostensibly to attend the All Star game on July 10 at Wrigley Field. In reality, the trip to the game was a cover for Caradori to meet with a source who handed him photographs that proved that Nebraskan children, some from the famed Boy’s Town orphanage, were being used for the sexual gratification of important political leaders in Washington, including Vice President and President George H W Bush.
Caradori phoned his wife and another investigator shortly before the All-Star game and told them the same thing: “I got what I came after. I got ‘em by the balls. I’ve got pictures. I will take them to the game and bring them back to Nebraska.”
When Caradori began to follow the money behind the Franklin scandal, he discovered two things: the Franklin Credit Union was being used by the White House and CIA to launder money for the Iran-contra affair and King and his associates were given a free ride to sexually traffic in and molest children, including many procured from Boy’s Town.
One of those implicated in the Franklin scandal was Housing and Urban Development Secretary Sam Pierce. At the 1984 Republican National Convention in Dallas, King held a $1 million reception for Pierce. However, King’s salary at the time was $14,000 a year and the actual cost of the reception was $300,000. The difference, $700,000, went into a slush fund that was laundered by the Franklin Credit Union for various “activities” sponsored by the CIA and White House.
On July 11, Caradori took off in his private plane from Chicago en route to Nebraska. Witnesses on the ground said they saw a flash in the sky followed by an explosion. Initial news reports stated that Caradori’s aircraft exploded in flight and then crashed. However, subsequent news reports were altered and claimed the aircraft exploded upon impact with the ground. Caradori and his son were killed in the crash. The local Sheriff’s office reported that scattered in the wreckage were child pornographic photographs. The FBI arrived and began systematically removing the photographs, debris, and Caradori’s briefcase. Meanwhile, FBI agents in Lincoln, Nebraska entered Caradori’s office and seized his files. Another FBI agent showed up at the office of a Nebraska state official investigating the Franklin case and demanded he turn over his files. The state official told the FBI agent to “get the hell out.”
The Bush White House immediately began covering up the Franklin scandal and put pressure on the remaining Nebraska state investigators. The FBI used the Kansas City mob to intimidate high-level witnesses and investigators of the Franklin scandal. One of the lead investigators also told WMR, “the FBI killed Caradori . . . they put the bomb on his airplane.”
An attempt to hire former CIA director William Colby to lead a state of Nebraska investigation of the Franklin scandal failed in a legislative committee 4 to 3 vote. Instead, the committee appointed attorney Kirk Naylor as its chief investigator. A major figure involved in investigating Franklin told WMR that Naylor was the most incompetent person the committee could have found to lead the investigation. Colby was a Vietnam War colleague of Nebraska state Senator John De Camp, one of major investigators of the Franklin scandal. Colby reportedly was ready to expose the CIA’s own involvement in the use of child prostitutes for the purposes of political and diplomatic blackmail. Colby died in a suspicious canoeing accident on the Chesapeake Bay on April 27, 1996.
Monsignor Robert Hupp, the Vicar-General of the Archdiocese of Omaha, a former Navy chaplain, and, in 1976, the first-ever clergy member of the U.S. delegation to the United Nations, had reported in the early 1970s to his bishop that there was sexual abuse at Boy’s Town that even involved a priest murdering a boy. Hupp was later named the head of Boy’s Town, ostensibly to keep him quiet. Hupp was in charge of Boy’s Town until the late 1980s, when the Franklin scandal first hit the front pages. Eventually, even after stepping down as the head of the orphanage, Hupp was forced to leave Boy’s Town altogether. WMR has learned that in 2003 a longtime supporter of Boy’s Town allowed Hupp to move into his cabin in Mausten, Wisconsin after being forced to leave the facilities at Boy’s Town. A reporter for the Omaha World-Herald, a newspaper owned by Nebraska billionaire Warren Buffett and which always had a skeptical view of the Franklin scandal, volunteered to drive Hupp to Wisconsin. Upon arriving at the cabin, the reporter prepared dinner for Hupp. The retired monsignor who broke the Catholic Church’s silence on its role in the Franklin scandal, died in his sleep that same night.
The iconic Washington Times front page that capped off the Franklin scandal’s sporadic and spotty news coverage.
Anyone who believes the Franklin Scandal and Cover-up is over and done with would be dead wrong. On January 20, 2012, Carol Stitt, the 29-year director of the Nebraska Foster Care Review Board, an individual who aggressively protected foster care children in Nebraska from sexual perverts and other undesirable foster parents, was dismissed by her own board of directors. The 11-member board had been stacked by loyalists of Republican Governor Dave Heineman whose goal it was to oust Stitt. As with the constant intimidation of witnesses involved in Franklin, Stitt also found herself investigated by the federal government’s Office of Special Counsel for allegedly violating the Hatch Act by attending a 2006 political campaign rally for Republican and football coach legend Tom Osborne. Although Stitt, a state employee, would not normally be subject to the rarely-enforced Hatch Act that bans political activity by federal employees, Stitt’s Foster Care Review Board received funds from the federal Department of Health and Human Services (HHS).
The HHS’s initial complaint against Stitt, which arose from her attendance at the 2006 Osborne rally, began when current GOP U.S. Senate candidate Ben Sasse was serving as assistant secretary for planning and evaluation at HHS. From 1996 to 1998, Sasse was one of four tutors/proctors for the U.S. House of Representatives page program. During this time frame, a number of House pages complained of sexual harassment from GOP House members. Representatives Jim Kolbe (R-AZ) and Mark Foley (R-FL) were later named as principal harassers of underage male pages. WMR has also learned from a member of the Sasse family that physical and psychological abuse have been rampant in the Sasse family. Senate candidate Sasse, who helped the John Ashcroft Justice Department draw up torture policy along with the CIAm is a home-schooler whose religious beliefs are based on neo-Calvinist fundamentalist Christian Dominionism.
Sasse faces two opponents after coming from the political wilderness to defeat better known and financed GOP candidates in the primary. David Domina, a trial lawyer, is Sasse’s lackluster Democratic opponent, while Dan Buhrdorf is mounting a spirited independent challenge under the Tax Wall Street Party banner.
Title: The Crisis of the NBAPA; Is Adam Silver Poised to Take The NBAPA’s Lunch?
By Brian Crowell; Member NEA and AFT Teachers Union
Much praise was given to NBA Commissioner Adam Silver in wake of the Donald Sterling Controversy. Silver gave an almost “Baptist church” like speech shouting out NBA names such as “Sweet Water Clifton” and “Magic Johnson” to try to win over consent of a mostly black NBA League. Sure Adam, I heard the salient points but “Sweet Water Clifton” is a bit much. I think you were more concerned that players would boycott the playoff game and still be allowed their full paychecks under Title 7 Protection.
After all Donald Sterling essentially said he didn’t want certain African Americans at his games, which to me a historian sounds like blacks not allowed to sit in lunch counters, or ride in the front of the bus. 50 years after the Civil Rights Act of 1964, nothing has changed for rank and file African Americans if anything, things have become worse. Just look at the Unemployment and Incarceration numbers for blacks and the concept paints a bleak picture. No, the Crisis is in the NBAPA goes much deeper into what Silver didn’t say, and what he wants in the upcoming CBA if either side opts out of the deal.
Lets begin with issue number 1. Salary Cap. Yes Adam Silver wants a “hard cap” on player salaries limiting the amount players can earn for their labor in the NBA. In a capitalist system it sounds like sacrilege for Silver to suggest such a thing. If Robert Downey Jr. Can earn up to $50 million dollars for “The Avengers” then why can’t Lebron James Earn $40 Million for an entire NBA Season? (Don’t get me wrong I love Iron Man, but Lebron gets me off my couch with his nasty 1 hand tomahawk dunks). Baseball does just find without a salary cap, and there’s no evidence to suggest that a salary cap increases “competition” between the teams. (See footnotes). In professional sports its a known fact that whoever gets the best players, coaches, training staff and management will win an abundance of the glory. The conservative Supreme Court would never suggest limiting profits for Microsoft or Google, I doubt they would decide to do so to limit NBA Player Salaries. Isn’t price manipulation “illegal” under Anti Trust Law? ( See Footnotes). No, Silver’s assertion to impose a hard cap is the same economic racism we see in the NFL and frankly the players should take a stand now and stop it. When is the last time a fan bought a ticket to see Donald Sterling shoot a 3 pointer?
To continue on issue number 2. Age minimum for NBA Players. Let me be clear some of the best NBA Players never went to college. Let’s name a few Kevin Garnett, Lebron James, Kobe Bryant. That’s a pretty awesome list. So what’s behind this policy? Well that’s obvious; Silver is trying to give a bone to his friends at the NCAA so they can lock in their players at slave non wages for an extra year. (Full disclosure my wife is white I have nothing against any culture or creed), however to ignore the fact that black athletes create enormous wealth for Universities (who are majority white) would be naive, dishonest and obtuse. It must be said: black athletes create billions of dollars for college and universities. In the context of the Ed O’Bannon lawsuit for players to be compensated for their likeness I hope this concept hits home for NBA Players.
For Silver to take away a players right to earn a living, to secure a few more billions for his friends at the NCAA is not only exploitation I could also call it something else. Hey Adam what happened to “Sweet Water Clifton” and “Magic Johnson”? I guess that only applies when players are starting to recognize their own power and boycott games under Title 7 Protection. Message to Chris Paul: Wake up Chris players need to start saving their money now and get ready for the impending labor fight which could come as early as 2016.
Issue number 3. The union itself. One could ask how does ownership get away with all of these anti player and anti labor policies? Well that answer is rooted in the structure of the union itself. For readers who don’t know if you’re in a union, management is exempt from all Anti Trust Law. This is why the NFL and NBA had to decertify and become a “trade association” so they could get possible relief in the courts. The question should be asked in the context of the NBA Owners licking their chops to take more of the player’s lunch: should the NBAPA decertify and become a permanent NBA Trade Association. After all their trade is basketball and as an association they could get relief in the courts that they can’t currently get in collectively bargained contracts. (I am a member of 2 unions and have served as a rep, but this concept needs to be explored further).
Issue number 4. Leadership. It’s no accident that the players can’t find a new Executive Director to represent them. Kevin Johnson is serving as a stand in but something tells me that KJ wants to be Chair of the DNC or Governor of California. The NBA Players need someone skilled in Federal Anti Trust Litigation. The reason the owners can impose conditions on players who generate all the money is because the owners can skirt the anti trust issue, while claiming they are bargaining in good faith. Its a bait and switch tactic unfortunately the players seem to keep falling for it. Wake up players, go back and talk to Oscar Robinson and Bill Russell. Become more socially conscious. If any player saw how Coach Mark Jackson was treated the message is clear. Players are expendable commodities. Lacob basically told Stephen Curry “I don’t care what you think boy” you belong to me until your contract is up. The Plantation is still alive and well not only in rank and file jobs in America, but also in the NBA. Will the players learn anything from the lockout and stop being exploited? Only time will tell.
Prayer of Protection for those of the Jewish Faith.By Cathy BilskyAs we join our creative energies together as one voice let us now call:(say this out loud using the power of the spoken word and say this with as much feeling as you can…shouting is good)In the name of the presence of God, which I am, through the magnetic power of the sacred fire vested in me; I COMMAND:I call to the Creator, Angels, Spiritual Hierarchy and all the Cosmic beings of light to give us their assistance in negating all negative thought forms of destruction directed toward those of the Jewish faith replacing that energy with positive peaceful constructive thoughts.We cut all ties to all fear that is be perpetuated by anyone regarding the Jews, including the CIA,Jesuits, Pope, Arabs,the movie industry or any anti-Semite again replacing the fear with constructive positive thoughts. We command the angels and all cosmic beings to interfere with all plans of mass destruction and the sacrifice of any Jews as well as neutralizing all satanic plans for creating chaos going backwards and forwards 1,000′s of years.I ask that the energy of racism towards people of the Jewish faith be removed by Michael the Archangel, cutting the ties with His sword of Blue Flame since the creation of the planet until now. Let this be trailed by the Violet Fire to transmute all back to Light. Let those thought-forms be replaced with Divine Love. I ask the Goddess of Truth into everything on the planet that is trying to hide racism and bring it up to the surface. That she brings forward all secrets and hidden agendas, the Illuminati, Aryan nation, the Antioch Baptist Church, the KKK, Nazi Party, all Dark Politicians, Nazi’s, skinheads, CIA, Jesuits, Pope etc., are hiding or disguising regarding their practices. Let all anti-Semitic energy veils be removed from humankind so the Divine may again come through. I command that all persons with negative feelings or emotions towards those of the Jewish faith step into the Violet Flame and then onto the Light.I call Divine Light, Divine Wisdom and Divine Caring/Compassion to everyone’s heart now letting kindness caring and love come through for all. For those “stuck” beings I ask the creator to shut their reptilian brain down and activate the Divine God brain. We see these beings become an awakened spiritual being that now knows better than to hurt or harm any life form. I call to the Higher Selves of all life forms and ask that they now see everyone as brothers, sisters, aunts, uncles, mothers, fathers, all one family.We cut all ties to any music and all symbols that refer to the destruction of the Jews by any kind of weapons cleansed by the violet flame, healed by the Angelite energy then we see this energy being reconnected to the Creator now commanding all elemental’s to be neutral. We see all symbols, prophecies and all music loosing their energy as well as all forward movement. As prophesies may be changed we put all our creative energies into seeing the state of Israel joyful, protected and safe.We ask oh Creator that all elemental’s of war such as guns, explosives, knives, bombs, land mines, trigger mechanisms, planes, rockets, weapons, drones, all nuclear weapons, computers, gases, germs, satellites, electrical towers, microwave towers, bio genetics, sound waves and weapons as well as any advanced weaponry that we may not have thought of. For example any off planet technology that is meant to destroy any Jewish life form on earth or the earth herself, and voodoo effigies that are being asked to hurt or destroy any Jewish life on any level, be commanded through the Sacred Triangle of Humans, Angels and Elemental’s to misfire, disintegrate, choose to malfunction, or generally be harmless and take the path of Love. We see all poison gas and aerosol canisters not working so they will not release toxins, they will be stopped by the power of all that is good and true..that nothing but good shall circulate in the air. May all the rats, mice, termites, snakes, spiders, flies, fleas now infect all equipment of war so all will break down.We Cut ties to those that may want to create the illusion of an alien invasion real or military created. Cut ties to all holographic machines, the computers that run them and all satellites. When they try and communicate with each other they receive nothing but white noise and lots of static. As all their high tech equipment malfunction and break down all operators and technicians have memory problems as they all become dyslexic around their equipment.I call to all possible bombs that may be planted inside (or outside) Israel including nuclear and ask that you breakdown and become totally nonfunctional. We command the angels and all cosmic beings to do whatever they need to do to see that all of these weapons malfunction.We cut ties to Israel and all religious groups trying to manifest Armageddon and using Israel as a patsy. We cut ties to all old bible stories that is creating this hostility between the Arabs and Israel. We violet flame all those old thought forms NOW. Let’s replace those thoughts with ideas of peace, compassion, harmony and love.Let’s send more light energy to all those Israelis that stand for peace. May they be sent all they need to be successful in their missions as well as Divine protection. See the peace movement growing and becoming greater than the war energy.Let the love flow.Never the less not our will but thy will be done.SO BE IT!
