Mae Brussell (May 29, 1922 – October 3, 1988)

She was a housewife and mother of five who later became the most remarkable and talented researcher possibly of all time. How did she predict so many major events like the Robert Kennedy assassination or the Ronald Reagan attempted assassination? Not by magic, not by her psychic powers but by fundamental, detailed research. Even though she admitted that most of the news was slanted and controlled, she read and listened carefully to what was said and what was unsaid.  She kept detailed, indexed records, which gave her a big view; distilling patterns and trends from the breadcrumbs the media left behind.

MaeOnTheAirShe had an incredible mind and an equally incredible indexed physical filing system consisting of over 40 file cabinets and 100s of boxes which are now neglected in San Jose, California due to lack of funds.  She would painstakingly and physically cut and paste news and magazine clippings –that you or I would consider mundane– into her filing system. She would pay attention to news stories that hit the wire and then disappeared and then she would do further research to find out why this or that important news story was dropped. She discovered that Lennon’s doorman was CIA for example.   She paid attention to who moved into the neighborhood near Oswald months before the JFK assassination and who moved out just after the assassination. Turned out it was the same folks; more than 30 people all together.  Coincidence?  One took a job as a mechanic who turned out to be CIA. All had better and different jobs after they moved. She called them “Migratory Birds.”   After establishing herself with a radio show, her helpers and supporters were called ‘Brussell Sprouts’.

Wikipedia: In her early life, she was a married housewife with five children and living in Southern California. After the Kennedy assassination, she bought the 26-volume Warren Commission Hearings. NOTE: This was twenty-six volumes of supporting documents, including the testimony or depositions of 552 witnesses and more than 3,100 exhibits representing more than 20,000 pages of disorganized mess that Mae took the time to read in its entirety, index and organize.

Mae Brussell and Books

On May 29, 1968 Mae confronted Rose Kennedy at the Monterey Peninsula Airport and handed her a note telling her Robert Kennedy would soon be assassinated. A week later he was shot to death at The Ambassador Hotel in Los Angeles.

Mae’s first published article in Paul Krassner’s The Realist was actually financed by John Lennon (Krassner couldn’t afford the $5,000 printing cost).

Frank Zappa once gave her a computer for filing and cross-indexing her research (but she never used it).

Much of Mae’s March 29, 1981 broadcast was spent discussing the power- struggle within the Reagan Administration and asked who will kill off their team members first. The following morning President Reagan was shot in Washington D.C.

Her countless list of German and White Russian fascist fingerprints to President Kennedy’s assassination reached its peak in May of 1988 when she discovered the name “Adolf H. Schicklgruber” handwritten in Marina Oswald’s notebook of poetry in the Warren Commission exhibits.

There were times when death threats drove Mae off the air: once by Charles Manson family member Sandra Good in September 1975. Sometimes Mae resorted to recording her shows at home on her small cassette tape recorder and privately mailed out copies to her subscribers.

In 1983 Mae’s show was picked up by listener-sponsored KAZU FM in nearby Pacific Grove. Five years later she was forced off the air, for the last time, from death threats but continued sending out her weekly tapes to subscribers until June 13, 1988 (tape #862). Mae died of cancer on October 3rd of that year.  She was 66.

Danny Casolaro

by DAVID BROWN | | November 30, 2014


Danny Casolaro

We can read about the many misdeeds of government; and, if you are like me, you tend to just file that away as another mundane incident to be expected; but when we come to the death of Danny Casolaro, there is so much evidence and raw documented data of government involvement in murder, drug trafficking and cover-up –reaching around the globe– that this is one case we must be familiar with; if for no other reason but to be reminded who and what we are really up against.  The Death of Danny Casolaro reads like a novel but this is real.  This is not just some anomaly that happened a long time ago, never to be repeated. The criminals and murders have never been brought to justice, but rather have benefited financially and politically and continue to this very day.  The corruption reaches to the highest offices in this land and there can be no doubt about this.

Sibel Edmonds

Sibel Edmonds

Fast forward to current events … If you read ‘Classified Woman-The Sibel Edmonds Story: A Memoir’ you will be stuck by her first-hand insider evidence that yes indeed our FBI, CIA, the Executive and the Judiciary are in collusion to hide the truth of their misdeeds, their crimes against the American people and their collusion in the attacks on 9/11; of this there can be no doubt, but we must see the evidence in its stark details to make it real for us and not just some intellectual theory, newspaper headline or fairy tale.  Sibel Edmond’s story has nothing to do with building 7 or any of the other physical evidence, she is merely reporting on the reaction to certain events she saw first-hand inside the FBI and their attempts to deceive the American people.

Of all the videos and audio recordings I’ve heard on the Danny Casolaro case, James Corbett has put together the best below. Please take some time to let James do the heavy lifting and listen to both Episode 209 and 210 to get informed. We need to be well-grounded in the facts and understand just exactly what manner of evil and psychopathy we are up against.   Buckle your seat-belts and listen …

Episode 209 – Requiem for the Suicided: Danny Casolaro

Danny Casolaro was a freelance journalist who told his friends and family that he was close to cracking a story he called The Octopus, which he referred to as the political conspiracy of the century. In August of 1991 he packed his notes and headed to West Virginia to conduct some final interviews for his forthcoming book. On August 10, 1991, he was found dead in his hotel room. The death was immediately ruled a suicide. Join us this week on The Corbett Report as we go in search of the story behind the story of the mysterious death of Danny Casolaro.

Episode 210 – Hunting the Octopus

In Episode 209 we looked at the mysterious death of Danny Casolaro, the journalist who was about to crack the political conspiracy of the century, a plot that he called “the octopus.” This week we go in search of the octopus that Casolaro was hunting.

Leaving the Illusion – Book Review

Leaving the IllusionClearNFO Rating: 5 / 5 Stars
Leaving the Illusion by Joseph Plummer
Paperback: 190 pages
Joseph Plummer’s first Novel
Available at Amazon and other book resellers

Joseph Plummer’s wonderful Novel called ‘Leaving the Illusion’ reveals the reality behind the illusion most of us can never see.   Using a clever mechanism of a debate between a brilliant elite named ‘Howard’ (who has a hidden agenda) and ‘Alex’ (who is living the illusion), Howard brings Alex into a frightening but all too real understanding of the dominant class in the hope that he can teach and train Alex to willingly become one of the chosen few.  The tools, techniques, sources and methods Howard reveals are spot-on and shows that Plummer has done his homework.   Howard’s cold logic is the best argument I can imagine to promote the elite’s agenda.   The debate that emerges between Howard and Alex is brilliant and reaches into the deep core set of  beliefs and assumptions that most of us share.  Great read.  I also recommend Tragedy and Hope 101 by Plummer.

NOTE: I’ll be conducting an interview with Mr. Joseph Plummer in the near future.  Stay tuned.

Who the International Aid Agencies Serve

by DAVID BROWN | | November 22, 2014

How International Aid Agencies really work 

  1. Country “X” is identified as being financially weak, yet has valuable assets like natural resources or has geopolitical value
  2. Country “X” is then targeted by the USAID, IMF & World Bank for loans.
  3. Representatives are sent into Country “X” to do studies to prove up (by exaggerated estimates) what this or that infrastructure will do for the economy of Country “X”.
  4. This inflated estimate for money is then included as part of a loan request to the bank.  This is the cover.
  5. Loan is committed
  6. Heads of State of Country “X” siphon off much of the money to private bank accounts
  7. Most of the work for the infrastructure improvements goes to well-connected multinational corporations not to local companies.
  8. Country “X” cannot pay loan back
  9. Bank offers additional money to help Country “X” if they will implement “austerity measures” which effectively puts the bankers in charge of running the country.
  10. Country “X”, still cannot make payments on loan.
  11. Bank takes control of assets and natural resources of Country “X”
  12. Bank sells assets, natural resources of Country “X” or provides monopolies to multinational corporations at pennies on the dollar, which still does not satisfy the debt.

NOTE: Much of this is coordinated with the help of the US, CIA, NATO and the EU.  If Country “X” will not go along with the loan, then Operation Gladio is implemented with the aid of NGOs such as NED (National Endowment for Democracy) to destabilize Country “X” for regime change.


The IMF is a self-described “organization of 188 countries, working to foster global monetary cooperation, secure financial stability, facilitate international trade, promote high employment and sustainable economic growth, and reduce poverty around the world.”

The World Bank’s official goal is the reduction of poverty. According to its Articles of Agreement, all its decisions must be guided by a commitment to the promotion of foreign investment and international trade and to the facilitation of capital investment.

USAID has adopted as its mission statement “to partner to end extreme poverty and to promote resilient, democratic societies while advancing the security and prosperity of the United States.” USAID operates in Africa, Asia, Latin America and Europe.

Truth & Justice have no play here

by DAVID BROWN | | November 22, 2014

How can you be for something and against that thing at the same time?  Well, that’s the predicament in which I find myself on the matter of capital punishment or the death penalty. Yes, I’m for capital punishment for certain crimes, but they must be proven without a shadow of a doubt; and therein is the rub where I am concerned.  To put it simply, our courts are not fair and do justice-147214_150not dispense justice equally. In fact, if the truth were known in the general public, most criminal cases are a fraud since most are plea bargained to a lesser crime –which in some cases was not even committed– all for expediency and surety of a conviction, not for justice or the determination of truth. If you doubt this, just read the excellent and well-documented book by Paul Craig Roberts entitled ‘The Tyranny of Good Intentions’. Add to this evidence, the work done by ‘The Innocence Project’ whereby DNA evidence has cleared falsely imprisoned people across the nation based on proof; not on the conviction machinery we call our justice system. The rates of false conviction are amazing. And from my personal experience, I have been in civil court no fewer than 25 times and have witnessed up close and personal the role politics and money play. Truth is rarely a consideration in my opinion. So given this knowledge, yes I am for the death penalty for certain crimes, but I have no trust that our current court system is capable of dispensing truth or justice.

Confessions of a Monopolist by Frederic C. Howe

by DAVID BROWN | | November 18, 2014
“Competition is a sin.”  — John D. Rockefeller

Portrait of Frederic C. Howe.

Portrait of Frederic C. Howe.

Through this I learned the explanation of the growth of monopoly in recent years. It is done in this way. The savings of the people, running into the millions, are deposited in the banks, savings institutions and trust companies. The latter enjoy immense powers under their charters. They can do almost anything. Thus entrusted with the people’s money, they are able to use their savings as they wish. The bank is controlled by its directors. They desire to build a railroad, street railway, or consolidate some industries or coal mines. They organize a syndicate among themselves. They secure options on the property. They then arrange to secure a loan on mortgage. On this they issue bonds. These the bank or trust company, which the syndicate really controls, agrees to underwrite, or take off the syndicate’s hands at par, or something below par. On these bonds money is advanced to buy the properties. Then the trust company sells the bonds to its depositors or customers at an advance, while the capital stock of the railroad, street railway, trust or coal monopoly, for which it has paid nothing, is retained by the syndicate. The bank has advanced all of the money used. And this money was earned by the people, the depositors. Then the people, and in many instances the depositors, buy back the bonds for an investment, leaving the cream of the deal in the hands of the syndicate, which is in fact but the officers of the bank who have borrowed from themselves and kept the stock for themselves. The next step is to make the stock valuable. This is done by putting up railroad rates, the price of commodities, of coal, or whatever else the syndicate is operating in. Thus the circle is completed. The people’s money is used to buy properties which are taken in the name of the syndicate, who are really the directors of the bank. Then the properties are consolidated and a lot of water in the form of stock added to the purchase price. Then the people pay again to their own trustees a big profit, by being compelled to pay monopoly prices for the things they consume.

The Walled-Garden of History and Politics

by DAVID BROWN | | November 17, 2014

Walled Garden

Walled Garden

Now Rush Limbaugh is a brilliant political analyst, whom I have always admired; and Mark Levin –also known as the ‘Great one’—is a brilliant legal mind. Both of these gentlemen are great American patriots and very studied on the much agreed upon version of history promulgated by academia. The point I would like to make here, is that no matter how brilliant these two gentlemen and others in their league are, or how studied they are, they have unwittingly confined their studies to the domain of generally accepted facts which have been promulgated and funded by the very power structure they either cannot see or have chosen to ignore. This means that no matter how brilliant their analysis is, their conclusions are necessarily limited to rehashing generally accepted fact-claims of history which may or may not be correct. All logic –after all– has its origin in the fundamental assumptions upon which it is based; so, if the assumptions are in error or incomplete, the resultant conclusions must therefore, by necessity, be suspect or at a minimum deserve a fresh analysis based on new evidence grounded on source documentation, not on generally promulgated truth-claims originating from establishment-fed institutions including Academia.

The power of accepting these officially promulgated assumptions is that it places everyone who accepts these assumptions within the confines of a walled-garden in which debate can officially be conducted. There is money and fame to be found here and legitimacy by consensus. If you happen to go outside the walls that protect the garden, your reputation can be destroyed and thus you lose your certification to debate within the garden of acceptable discourse. Within the walled-garden, you can have spirited disagreements and you can have people who don’t know the facts (collective truth-claims) and you can have people who know the fact-claims inside and out and you can find people who press their own agendas despite the given fact-claims, but all discourse is necessarily limited to the garden provided, surrounded by the wall of permissible historical assumptions. And these are the rules of the game.

Now some of us doubt the validity of the assumptions, but up until recently had no access to evidence they were invalid. We did notice that that many things within the walled-garden did not make sense, so we suspected that there was more to learn. We could see the effects of those things out side of the garden, but could not see the things themselves; thus we had no direct proof and were therefore marginalized by the establishment. Now the source evidence we seek has been here for some time, but the access to the evidence has been difficult or impossible to discover by design. With the advent of the internet more access to more information has been forthcoming and many of us have stumbled upon the documented evidence outside the walled garden which shows the walls to be a farcical creation of the predominant power structures.

Many of us start out slowly. We discover that the Federal Reserves for example is not Federal and has no Reserves. We discover that the second Gulf of Tonkin incident never happened. And we discover many covert operations and illegal experimentations by our government which have never been well-publicized, yet we still do not have the complete picture. Are these all isolated events or is there more to this? Well, there is much more than just these isolated pieces and most of us will never understand the glue that binds until we avail ourselves the time to read Carroll Quigley’s book entitled ‘The Anglo-American Establishment’ where the source documentation is provided in irrefutable detail. Now Quigley is no outsider, he is an establishment historian with impeccable credentials who even agrees with the current template we have been provided by the predominant power structure that he calls the ‘Network’.  Because of this, he was selected to document some of the history we never knew. He spent some 20 years working on this followed by two years of unlimited access to the archives at the CFR. And despite his painstaking documentation, yet even he was unwilling to disclose all he knew.  But for the first time we are able to see that which casts its shadow into the wall-garden and that which created the walls we use to limit our understanding.

So as I watch Rush Limbaugh and Mark Levin prattle about trying their hardest to understand and explain to their listeners why the Republicans are so ineffectual against the tyranny of the current president –despite huge public support– I look forward to the day when they finally see that their debate is limited by artificial walls which have been constructed by the ‘network’ that has been so clearly documented in Carroll Quigley’s books.

Is T0r Safe?

Is Tor Safe?

Tor: Onion routing

folks, I’ve used T0r a few times in the past just to check it out but I still have my reservations for using, even if it hadn’t been compromised (see link below). If you use T0r, then law officials automatically think you are doing something illegal; so this in and of itself, is a red flag. Also, T0r does not protect you at the entry point or the exit point of the onion routing scheme. Add to this, there are a lot of illegal activities going on within T0r, so you are rubbing up to and might be associating with criminal activity and thus get caught in an investigation by association; and in today’s world of criminal justice, you are more likely to have to prove your innocence to the state than the state prove your guilt. Based on this, I see T0r as a great idea –even if it was developed by the same state that seeks to compromise it—but I think there are way too many issues to use it or trust it. Bottom line in my opinion, there is no assurance of security or privacy on the net period; and if you assume you are safe, you do so at your own peril. So with this in mind, my basic theory is never do anything on line that you wouldn’t want published on the front page of Drudge or the NYT. This is unfortunate, but a reality. It is unfortunate because I believe that big part of being a free person is the expectation of privacy in our homes and in our online activities. Without privacy, free speech is attenuated, muted and restricted. This unfortunate condition we find our freedom in today represents just another example of the slow and steady creep of the state to subsume all individual rights and to eliminate any perceived threat to its power. The end point of this progression can only end with total control and ownership of the individual by the state and this is not a pretty picture. The individual rights the state takes are always under the guise of protecting you but don’t be their fool; the real purpose is to grow the scope, reach and power of the state over the individual.

The Great Republican Win

by DAVID BROWN | | November 10, 2014

The truth about the Republicans and the Great Republican Win of 2014: While the Republicans stood for noting during the 2014 midterms, they cowered in the fetal position, urinating on themselves for the past six years, hoping that no one would notice them. Meanwhile, the great and powerful Obama made busy deconstructing America with no resistance. The Republicans did, however, muster enough energy to attack the very people who have stood against Obama’s lawless tyranny.

John Boehner, Mitch McConnell, John Cornyn, Reince Priebus and other leading Republicans have done nothing to support the grassroots movement of patriots who desire a smaller, more accountable government; rather these Republicans have spent millions to discredit and destroy the very people who seek to hold the government accountable.

This my friends is the sad legacy of the Republican Party and we will not sit idly by while they conduct business as usual.

Wall Street and FDR

Wall Stree and FDRWall Street and FDR by Antony C. Sutton

Franklin D. Roosevelt is frequently described as one of the greatest presidents in American history, remembered for his leadership during the Great Depression and Second World War. Antony Sutton challenges this received wisdom, presenting a controversial but convincing analysis. Based on an extensive study of original documents, he concludes that: * FDR was an elitist who influenced public policy in order to benefit special interests, including his own. * FDR and his Wall Street colleagues were ‘corporate socialists’, who believed in making society work for their own benefit. * FDR believed in business but not free market economics. Sutton describes the genesis of ‘corporate socialism’ – acquiring monopolies by means of political influence – which he characterizes as ‘making society work for the few’. He traces the historical links of the Delano and Roosevelt families to Wall Street, as well as FDR’s own political networks developed during his early career as a financial speculator and bond dealer. The New Deal almost destroyed free enterprise in America, but didn’t adversely affect FDR’s circle of old friends ensconced in select financial institutions and federal regulatory agencies. Together with their corporate allies, this elite group profited from the decrees and programs generated by their old pal in the White House, whilst thousands of small businesses suffered and millions were unemployed. Wall Street and FDR is much more than a fascinating historical and political study. Many contemporary parallels can be drawn to Sutton’s powerful presentation given the recent banking crises and worldwide governments’ bolstering of private institutions via the public purse.
