Neil Bush told Denver reporters he
had met Scott Hinckley at a surprise party at the Bush home January 23, 1981,
approximately three weeks after the U.S. Department of Energy had begun what
was termed a "routine audit" of the books of the Vanderbilt Energy Corp. On
March 30, three representatives of the U.S. Department of Energy tell Scott
Hinckley, Vanderbilt's vice president of operations, that auditors had
uncovered evidence of pricing violations on crude oil sold by the company from
1977 through 1980. The auditors announce that the federal government is
considering a penalty of two million dollars. Scott Hinckley reportedly
requested "several hours to come up with an explanation" of the serious
overcharges. The meeting ended a little more than an hour before John Hinckley
Jr. shoots Ronald Reagan.
Neil Bush, son of
Bush, was scheduled to have dinner on March 31, 1981, with Scott Hinckley
the brother of John Hinckley.
The family of John Hinckley was
acquainted with the family of
Bush having made large contributions to George H.W. Bush's political
campaign, the Houston Post reported on March 31, 1981, Tuesday, PM cycle.
The Houston Post reported in a copyright story, Scott Hinckley, brother
of John W. Hinckley Jr., who allegedly shot Reagan, was to have dined tonight
in Denver at the home of Neil Bush, one of the vice president's sons. Neil
Bush, who lives in Denver and works for Standard Oil Co. of Indiana, had
invited Scott Hinckley, vice president of his father's Denver-based firm,
Vanderbilt Energy Corp. to his home for dinner.
In 1978, Neil Bush
served as campaign manager for his brother,

Congress. Neil lived in Lubbock throughout much of 1978, where John Hinckley
lived from 1974 through 1980.
Even the official government line

John Hinckley had stalked
Senator Ted Kennedy and President Jimmy Carter. He devoured books on Sirhan
Sirhan, Robert Kennedy's assassin (suspected by many
conspiracy researchers to have been hypnotically programmed), and Arthur
Bremer, who shot George Wallace.
Theorists ask the inevitable
questions: Was Hinckley a mind-controlled assassin, a Manchurian Candidate
programmed to "terminate with extreme prejudice"? They point to
the CIA's longtime
obsession with mind control and the fact that during the 1980 presidential
primaries, Bush - the former director of Central Intelligence - enjoyed the
zealous support of Agency regulars, who preferred their former boss to Reagan.

Central Intelligence Agency Timeline
preparation for World War
II, Franklin D.
Roosevelt creates the Office of Coordinator of Information (COI). General
William "Wild Bill" Donovan heads the new intelligence service.
1942 Roosevelt restructures COI into something more suitable
for covert action, the Office of Strategic Services (OSS). Donovan recruits so
many of the nation's rich and powerful that eventually people joke that "OSS"
stands for "Oh, so social!" or "Oh, such snobs!"
1943 Donovan recruits the Catholic Church in Rome to be the
center of Anglo-American spy operations in Fascist Italy. This would prove to
be one of America's most enduring intelligence alliances in the Cold War.
1945 OSS is abolished - The remaining American
information agencies cease covert actions and return to harmless information
gathering and analysis.
Operation PAPERCLIPWhile other Federal agencies are hunting down Nazi war criminals for
arrest, the US intelligence community is smuggling them into America,
unpunished, for their use against the Soviets. The most important of these is
Reinhard Gehlen, Hitler's master spy who had built up an intelligence network
in the Soviet Union. With full US blessing, he creates the "Gehlen
Organization," a band of refugee Nazi spies who reactivate their networks in
These include SS intelligence officers Alfred Six and Emil
Augsburg (who massacred Jews in the
Holocaust), Klaus Barbie (the "Butcher of Lyon"), Otto von Bolschwing (the
Holocaust mastermind who worked with Eichmann) and SS Colonel Otto Skorzeny (a
personal friend of Hitler's). The Gehlen Organization supplies the US with its
only intelligence on the Soviet Union for the next ten years, serving as
a bridge between the abolishment of the OSS and the creation of the CIA.
Much of the "intelligence" the former Nazis provide is bogus. Gehlen
inflates Soviet military capabilities at a time when Russia is still rebuilding
its devastated society, in order to inflate his own importance to the Americans
(who might otherwise punish him).
Truman requests military aid to Greece to support right-wing forces fighting
communist rebels. For the rest of the Cold War, Washington and the CIA will
back notorious Greek leaders with deplorable human rights records.
Truman signs the National Security Act of 1947, creating the Central
Intelligence Agency and National Security Council. The CIA is accountable to
the president through the NSC - there is no democratic or congressional
oversight. Its charter allows the CIA to "perform such other functions and
duties as the National Security Council may from time to time direct." This
opens the door to covert action and dirty tricks.
1948 Reinhard Gehlen almost convinces the Americans that war
is imminent, and the West should make a preemptive strike. In the 50s he
produces a fictitious "missile gap." To make matters worse, the Russians have
thoroughly penetrated the Gehlen Organization with double agents, undermining
the very American security that Gehlen is supposed to protect.
CIA recreates a covert action wing, innocuously called
the Office of Policy Coordination, led by Wall Street lawyer
Frank Wisner. According to its
secret charter, its responsibilities include "propaganda, economic warfare,
preventive direct action, including sabotage, antisabotage,
demolition and evacuation procedures; subversion
against hostile states, including assistance to underground resistance groups,
and support of indigenous anti-communist elements in threatened countries of
the free world."
CIA corrupts democratic elections in Italy, where
Italian communists threaten to win the elections. The CIA buys votes,
broadcasts propaganda, threatens and beats up opposition leaders, infiltrates
and disrupts their organizations. It works - the communists are defeated.
1949 CIA creates
its first major propaganda outlet, Radio Free Europe. Over
the next several decades, its broadcasts are so blatantly false that for a time
it is considered illegal to publish transcripts of them in the US.
CIA begins recruiting
American news organizations and journalists to become spies and disseminators
of propaganda. The effort is headed
by Frank Wisner,
Helms and Philip Graham. Graham is publisher of The Washington Post, which
becomes a major CIA player. Eventually, the CIA's media assets will include
elements within ABC, NBC, CBS, Time,
Newsweek, Associated Press, United Press
International, Reuters, Hearst Newspapers, Scripps-Howard, Copley News Service
and more. By the CIA's own admission, at least 25 organizations and 400
journalists will become CIA assets.
CIA begins experiments on mind control. LSD and other drugs are given
to American subjects without their knowledge or against their will, causing
several to commit suicide. Funded in part by the Rockefeller and Ford
foundations, research includes propaganda, brainwashing, public
relations, advertising, hypnosis, and other forms of suggestion.
altering projects went under the code names of Operation Chatter, Operation
Bluebird/Artichoke, Operation Mknaomi, Mkultra, and Mkdelta.
The CIA and
Army spent $26,501,446 "testing" LSD, code name EA 1729, and other chemical
agents. Contracts went out to forty-eight different institutions for testing.
The CIA concealed their participation by contracting to various colleges,
hospitals, prisons, mental hospitals, and private foundations.
physical examination of the subject is required prior to the administration of
LSD. A physician need not be present. Physicians might be called for the hope
they would make a diagnosis of mental-breakdown which would be useful in
discrediting the individual who was the subject of CIA
Richard Helms, CIA Director, argued that administering drugs,
including poisoned LSD, to individuals who are unwitting was necessary as this
is the only realistic method of understanding the capability of the intended
operational use to influence human behavior as the operational targets would
certainly be unwitting.
Individuals are unwittingly dosed with toxic
chemicals. New York State Psychiatric Institute is granted the first known
contract for research into psychochemical drugs. The purpose is to determine
the psychological effect of psychological chemical agents on human subjects.
These subjects were given derivatives of LSD and mescaline. Other chemicals
that were tested, which could be distributed at a later date included morphine,
demerol, seconal, scopolamine, ditan, atrophine, psilocybin, BZ (benzilate),
glycolate, atrophine substitutes, dimethyltryptamine, chlorpromazine, LSD with
Dibenzyline (blocking agents), LSM (Lysergic acid morpholide), LSD like
compounds, psilocybin, and various chemical glycolate agents.

CIA funds the overthrow of the
democratically elected Mohammed Mossadegh in a military coup, after he
threatened to nationalize British oil. The CIA replaces him with a dictator,
the Shah of Iran, whose secret police, SAVAK, is as brutal as the Gestapo.
1954 CIA funds the overthrow of the
democratically elected Jacob Arbenz in a military coup. Arbenz has threatened
to nationalize the Rockefeller-owned United Fruit Company, in which CIA
Welsh Dulles also owns stock. Arbenz is replaced with a series of
right-wing dictators whose bloodthirsty policies will kill over 100,000
Guatemalans in the next 40 years.
1954-1958 CIA officer Edward Lansdale spends four years trying
to overthrow the communist government of North Vietnam, using all the usual
dirty tricks. The CIA also attempts to legitimize a tyrannical puppet regime in
South Vietnam, headed by Ngo Dinh Diem. These efforts fail to win the hearts
and minds of the South Vietnamese because the Diem government is opposed to
true democracy, land reform and poverty
reduction measures. The CIA's continuing failure results in escalating American
intervention, culminating in the Vietnam War.
Radio Free Europe incites
Hungary to revolt by broadcasting Khruschev's Secret Speech, in which he
denounces Stalin. It also hints that American aid will help the Hungarians
fight. This aid fails to materialize as Hungarians launch a doomed armed
revolt, which only invites a major Soviet invasion. The conflict kills 7,000
Soviets and 30,000 Hungarians.
carries out approximately one coup per year trying to nullify Laos' democratic
elections. The problem is the Pathet Lao, a leftist group with enough popular
support to be a member of any coalition government. In the late 50s, the CIA
even creates an "Armee Clandestine" of Asian mercenaries to attack the Pathet
Lao. After the CIA's army suffers numerous defeats, the U.S. starts bombing,
dropping more bombs on Laos than all the U.S. bombs dropped in World War II. A
quarter of all Laotians will eventually become refugees, many living in caves.
1959 Military intelligence helps "Papa Doc" Duvalier become
dictator of Haiti. He creates his own private police force, the "Tonton
Macoutes," who terrorize the population with machetes. They will kill over
100,000 during the Duvalier family reign. The US does not protest their dismal
human rights record.
1,500 Cuban exiles invade Castro's

CIA-backed military coup overthrows the democratically elected government of
Joao Goulart of Brazil. The junta that replaces it will, in the next two
decades, become one of the most bloodthirsty in history. General Castelo Branco
will create Latin America's first death squads, or bands of secret police who
hunt down "communists" for torture, interrogation and murder. Often these
"communists" are no more than Branco's political opponents. Later it is
revealed that the CIA trains the death squads.
1965 CIA funds the overthrow of the democratically elected
Sukarno in Indonesia with a military coup. The CIA has been trying to eliminate
Sukarno since 1957, using everything from attempted assassination to sexual
intrigue, for nothing more than his declaring neutrality in the Cold War. His
successor, General Suharto, will massacre between 500,000 to 1 million
civilians accused of being "communist." The CIA supplies the names of countless

repressive Mobutu exploits his desperately poor country for billions.
Ramparts begins a series of unprecedented anti-CIA
articles. Among their scoops: the CIA has paid the University of Michigan $25
million dollars to hire "professors" to train South Vietnamese students in
covert police methods. MIT and other universities have received similar
payments. Ramparts also reveals that the National Students' Association is a
CIA front. Students are sometimes recruited through blackmail and bribery,
including draft deferments.
military coup overthrows the government of Greece two days before the
elections. The favorite to win was George Papandreous, the liberal candidate.
During the next six years, the "reign of the colonels" - backed by the CIA -
will usher in the widespread use of torture and murder against political
opponents. When a Greek ambassador objects to Lyndon Johnson about US plans for
Cypress, Johnson tells him: "Fuck your parliament and your constitution."
Operation PHOENIX - The CIA helps South
Vietnamese agents identify and then murder alleged Viet Cong leaders operating
in South Vietnamese villages. According to a 1971 congressional report, this
operation killed about 20,000 "Viet Cong." 1968
Operation CHAOS - The CIA has been illegally spying on
American citizens since 1959, but with Operation CHAOS, Lyndon Johnson
dramatically boosts the effort. CIA agents go undercover as student radicals to
spy on and disrupt campus organizations protesting the Vietnam War. They are
searching for Russian instigators, which they never find. CHAOS will eventually
spy on 7,000 individuals and 1,000 organizations.
military operation captures legendary guerilla Che Guevara in Bolivia. The CIA
wants to keep him alive for interrogation, but the Bolivian government executes
him to prevent worldwide calls for clemency.
CIA torturer Dan Mitrione arrives in Uruguay. Right-wing forces previously use
torture only as a last resort, Mitrione convinces them to use it as a routine,
widespread practice. "The precise pain, in the precise place, in the precise
amount, for the desired effect," is his motto. The torture techniques he
teaches to the death squads rival the Nazis'. He becomes so feared that
revolutionaries kidnap and murder him a year later. Long-secret diplomatic
documents reveale Richard
Nixon wanted Uruguays government to threaten to kill leftist
prisoners to try to save the life of Dan Mitrione.
1970 CIA overthrows Prince Sahounek, highly popular among
Cambodians for keeping them out of the Vietnam War. He is replaced by CIA
puppet Lon Nol, who immediately throws Cambodian troops into battle. This
unpopular move strengthens once minor opposition parties like the Khmer Rouge,
which achieves power in 1975 and massacres millions of its own people.
1971 After half a decade of CIA-inspired
political turmoil, a CIA-backed military coup overthrows leftist President Juan
Torres in Bolivia. In the next two years, dictator Hugo Banzer will have over
2,000 political opponents arrested without trial, then tortured, raped and
"Papa Doc" Duvalier dies, leaving his 19-year old son "Baby
Doc" Duvalier the dictator of Haiti. His son continues his bloody reign with
full knowledge of the CIA.
1972 Case-Zablocki Act Congress passes an act requiring
congressional review of executive agreements. In theory, this should make CIA
operations more accountable. In fact, it is only marginally effective.
Congress votes to cut off CIA funds for its secret war in Cambodia.
A team of burglars wiretap Democratic offices at Watergate. The team
members have extensive CIA histories, including James McCord, E. Howard Hunt
and five of the Cuban burglars. They work for the Committee to Reelect the
President (CREEP), which does dirty work like disrupting Democratic campaigns
and laundering illegal campaign contributions. CREEP's activities are funded
and organized by another CIA front, the Mullen Company.
1973 CIA facilitates the overthrow and assassination of
Salvador Allende in Chile. Allende had nationalized American-owned firms in
Chile. ITT offers the CIA $1 million for a coup. The CIA replaces Allende with
Pinochet, who will torture and murder thousands of his own countrymen in a
crackdown on labor leaders and the political left.
Watergate Scandal - The CIA's main collaborating newspaper in
America, Washington Post, reports
Richard Nixon's crimes long before any other newspaper takes up the subject.
The two reporters, Woodward and Bernstein, make almost no mention of the CIA's
many fingerprints all over the scandal. It is later revealed that Woodward was
a Naval intelligence briefer to the White House, and knows many important
intelligence figures, including General Alexander Haig. His main source, "Deep
Throat," is probably one of those.
Richard Nixon fires CIA
Director Richard Helms for failing to help cover up the Watergate scandal.

1975 CIA helps topple the democratically elected, left-leaning
Australian government of Prime Minister Edward Whitlam. The CIA does this by
giving an ultimatum to its Governor-General, John Kerr. Kerr, a longtime CIA
collaborator, exercises his constitutional right to dissolve the Whitlam
government. The Governor-General is a largely ceremonial position appointed by
the Queen; the Prime Minister is democratically elected. The use of this
archaic and never-used law stuns the nation.
convinces the CIA to back the brutal leader of UNITAS, Jonas Savimbi in Angola.
Angola is a country of little strategic importance and not seriously threatened
by communism. This polarizes Angolan
politics and drives his opponents into the arms of Cuba and the Soviet Union
for survival. Congress will cut off funds in 1976, but the CIA is able to run
the war off the books until 1984, when funding is legalized again. This
entirely pointless war kills over 300,000 Angolans.

outrage compels Congress to hold hearings on CIA crimes. Senator Frank Church
heads the Senate investigation ("The Church Committee"), and Representative
Otis Pike heads the House investigation. (Despite a 98 percent incumbency
reelection rate, both Church and Pike are defeated in the next elections.) The
investigations lead to a number of reforms which prove ineffective, as the
Iran/Contra scandal reveals.
Gerald Ford creates the US President's
Commission on CIA Activities within the United States, 'The Rockefeller
Commission', which attempts to reduce the damage done by the Church Committee.
The commission's namesake,
Rockefeller, is a major CIA figure. Five of the commission's eight members

1979 CIA fails to predict the
fall of the Shah of Iran, a longtime CIA puppet, and the rise of Muslim
fundamentalists who are furious at the CIA's backing of SAVAK, the Shah's
bloodthirsty secret police. In revenge, the Muslims take 52 Americans hostage
in the U.S. embassy in Tehran.
Soviets invade Afghanistan and the CIA
immediately begins supplying arms to any faction willing to fight the occupying
Soviets. Such indiscriminate arming means that when the Soviets leave
Afghanistan, civil war will erupt. Also, fanatical Muslim extremists now
possess state-of-the-art weaponry. One of these is Sheik Abdel Rahman, who will
become involved in the first World Trade Center bombing in New York.
El Salvador an idealistic group of young military officers, repulsed by the
massacre of the poor, overthrows the
right-wing government. However, the U.S. compels the inexperienced officers to
include many of the old guard in key positions in their new government. Soon,
things are back to "normal" - the military government is repressing and killing
poor civilian protesters. Many of the young military and civilian reformers,
finding themselves powerless, resign in disgust.
Anastasios Samoza II, the CIA-backed dictator, falls. The Marxist Sandinistas
take over the government and are initially popular because of their commitment
to land and anti-poverty reform. Samoza
had a murderous and hated personal army called the National Guard. Remnants of
the Guard will become the Contras, who fight a CIA-backed guerilla war against
the Sandinista government throughout the 1980s.
1980 In El Salvador Archbishop of San Salvador, Oscar Romero,
pleads with Jimmy Carter "Christian to Christian" to stop aiding the military
government slaughtering his people. Carter refuses. Shortly afterwards,
right-wing leader Roberto D'Aubuisson has Romero shot dead while
saying Mass. The country soon dissolves into civil war, with the peasants in
the hills fighting against the military government. The CIA and U.S. Armed
Forces supply the government with overwhelming military and intelligence
superiority. CIA-trained death squads roam the countryside, committing
atrocities like that of El Mazote in 1982, where they
massacre between 700 and 1000 men,
women and children. By 1992, some 63,000 Salvadorans will be killed.
1981 CIA begins
selling arms to Iran at high prices, using the profits to arm the Contras
fighting the Sandinista government in Nicaragua. Freedom Fighter's Manual
disbursed to the Contras includes instruction on economic sabotage, propaganda,
extortion, bribery, blackmail, interrogation, torture, murder and political

officers the Human Resource Exploitation Training Manual which teaches how to
torture people. Honduras' notorious "Battalion 316 then uses these techniques,
with the CIA's full knowledge, on thousands of leftist dissidents. At least 184
1984 Last of a series of Boland
Amendments is passed. These amendments have reduced CIA aid to the Contras; the
last one cuts it off completely. However, CIA Director William Casey is already
prepared to "hand off" the operation to Colonel Oliver North, who illegally
continues supplying the Contras through the CIA's informal, secret, and
self-financing network. This includes "humanitarian aid" donated by Adolph
Coors and William Simon, and military aid funded by Iranian arms sales.
1986 Nicaragua shoots down a C-123 transport
plane carrying military supplies to the Contras. The lone survivor, Eugene
Hasenfus, turns out to be a CIA employee, as are the two dead pilots. The
airplane belongs to Southern Air Transport, a CIA front. The incident makes a
mockery of claims that the CIA is not illegally arming the Contras.
Iran/Contra scandal finally captures the media's attention. Congress
holds hearings, and several key figures (like Oliver North) lie under oath to
protect the intelligence community. CIA Director William Casey dies of brain
cancer before Congress can question him. All reforms enacted by Congress after
this scandal are purely cosmetic.
invades Panama to overthrow a dictator on the CIA payroll, General Manuel
Noriega, who has been transporting drugs for them.
1990 With "Baby Doc" Duvalier deposed, leftist priest
Jean-Bertrand Aristide captures 68 percent of the vote competing against 10
comparatively wealthy candidates. After eight months in power, the CIA-backed
military deposes him and brutalizes the country. Thousands of Haitian refugees
escape the turmoil in barely seaworthy boats. As popular opinion calls for
Aristide's return, the CIA begins a disinformation campaign painting the
courageous priest as mentally unstable.
Saddam Hussein, a creature of the CIA , invades Kuwait. With US encouragement,
Hussein invaded Iran in 1980. During this costly eight-year war, the CIA built
up Hussein's forces with sophisticated arms, intelligence, training and
financial backing. This cemented Hussein's power at home, allowing him to crush
the many internal rebellions that erupted from time to time, sometimes with
poison gas supplied by the US.
1992 In the years
following the end of the Cold War, the CIA is increasingly used for economic
espionage. This involves stealing the technological secrets of competing
foreign companies and giving them to American ones.
1993 Chaos in Haiti grows so bad that William Jefferson
Clinton has no choice but to depose the Haitian military dictator, Raoul
Cedras, on threat of US invasion. The US occupiers do not arrest Haiti's
military leaders for crimes against humanity, instead ensure their safety and
rich retirements. Aristide is returned to power only after being forced to
accept an agenda favorable to the country's ruling class.

This website defines a new
perspective with which to engage reality to which its author adheres. The
author feels that the falsification of reality outside personal experience has
created a populace unable to discern
propaganda from reality
and that this has been done purposefully by an international corporate cartel
through their agents who wish to foist a corrupt version of reality on the
human race. Religious intolerance occurs when any group refuses to tolerate
religious practices, religious beliefs or persons due to their religious
ideology. This web site marks the founding of a system of philosophy named The
Truth of the Way of Life - a rational gnostic mystery religion based on reason
which requires no leap of faith, accepts no tithes, has no supreme leader, no

results have been the destruction of the family and the destruction of social
structures that do not adhere to the corrupt international elites vision of a
perfect world. Through distraction and coercion the
direction of thought of the bulk of the population has been directed toward
solutions proposed by the corrupt international elite that further consolidates
their power and which further their purposes.
