Wikipedia’s Big-Brother Doublethink Brigade Censors and Bans “Watergate: The Hoax”

Who controls the past controls the future. Who controls the present controls the past.
― George Orwell, 1984

We’ll know our disinformation program is complete when everything the American public believes is false.
—William Casey, Director of Central Intelligence

It has recently been brought to our attention that on 15 May 2017, a Wikipedia user named Celestia Jung made major, significant edits to Wikipedia’s “Watergate scandal” page. Before Jung’s edits, much of the page was pure fiction, a regurgitation of the same lame “Official Story” of Watergate that is hopelessly full of holes, lies, and impossible contradictions—all of them exposed for what they are in Ashton Gray’s Watergate: The Hoax.

According to Wikipedia’s own records of the change-history of the article, Celestia Jung added 26 references as citations in the article, and laid out an exceptionally well-researched and factually accurate account of facts about Watergate that—unfortunately for Watergate disinformation specialists—blow the “Official Story” to shreds. The added references included, for example, vitally important FBI documents, Congressional testimony, and legal depositions. Among the references, Jung also included citations to Gray’s 600-page groundbreaking exposé, Watergate: The Hoax. That book alone contains almost 500 citations to crucial government documents and private papers, some of them never before published.

The pack of disinformation jackals at Wikipedia completely eradicated Celestia Jung’s edits, censored and banned Watergate: The Hoax as a source, and then threatened to ban Celestia Jung’s account.

Because of the importance of the incontrovertible facts we have found to have been laid out in Celestia Jung’s edits and additions to the Wikipedia “Watergate scandal” page, we are going to reproduce it here just as it appeared on Wikipedia, including the citations and references. NOTE: Because of problems in the conversion process from the Wikipedia version to this blog software, we have renumbered the footnotes in order to include only those germane to the section that Celestia Jung had edited:

Break-ins and wiretaps at the DNC’s Watergate headquarters

The “Gemstone” plans

In early 1972, G. Gordon Liddy, having recently been appointed as Finance Counsel for the Committee for the Re-Election of the President (CRP), presented three different versions of a campaign intelligence plan, seeking approval and funding from CRP. E. Howard Hunt, a veteran of the U.S. Central Intelligence Agency who was working as a “consultant” to the White House at the time, aided Liddy in his presentations. Liddy and Hunt gave the plans a code name: “Gemstone.” Whether any version of the plan was approved has been contested in sworn testimony by those involved, and no documented proof of any approval ever has been in evidence.[1][2][3]:393-403

Gemstone 1

On Thursday, 27 January 1972, Liddy made his first Gemstone presentation to CRP’s Acting Chairman Jeb Stuart Magruder, Attorney General John Mitchell, and Presidential Counsel John Dean. It involved extensive illegal activities against the Democratic Party. According to the CIA, Liddy, at the time, was under “special clearances” from the CIA.[4] E. Howard Hunt arranged for the CIA to create elaborate charts used in Liddy’s presentation.[2] According to Dean, this marked “the opening scene of the worst political scandal of the twentieth century and the beginning of the end of the Nixon presidency”.[5] Mitchell viewed the plan as unrealistic and refused to approve it.

Gemstone 2

The second Liddy presentation to Mitchell, Dean, and Magruder for proposed political intelligence activities was made on Friday, 4 February 1972, and the budget had been reduced to $500,000. Liddy has sworn under oath that the Democratic National Committee‘s (DNC) headquarters at the Watergate Complex in Washington, D.C. was not a proposed target for any “surreptitious entry” or electronic surveillance in the 4 February 1972 proposal, or in any plan he ever submitted.[2] John Mitchell declined to approve the second proposal.[1]

Gemstone 3

In Congressional testimony, Magruder alleged that Mitchell approved a third version of Liddy’s plan on Thursday, 30 March 1972, while staying in Key Biscayne, Florida. Magruder also alleged that part of the plan was to break into the DNC headquarters at the Watergate—ostensibly to photograph campaign documents and install listening devices in telephones. (Magruder later was convicted of and sentenced to jail for perjury.) Mitchell denied in sworn testimony that he ever approved any Liddy plan at all.[1] According to Liddy, Magruder alone, in a closed-door meeting in Magruder’s office at “the end of April” 1972, ordered him to organize a break-in at DNC headquarters to plant electronic “bugs” and to photograph documents.[2] Liddy was nominally in charge of the operation, but has since insisted that he was duped by Dean and at least two of his subordinates. These included former CIA officers E. Howard Hunt and James McCord, then-CRP Security Coordinator. (John Mitchell had by then resigned as Attorney General to become chairman of the CRP.)[6]

Set-up for “first break-in”

On or about Friday, 31 March 1972, James McCord placed a phone call to the Watkins-Johnson Company, Communications Electronics Incorporated (CEI) division, in Rockville, Maryland, to inquire about surveillance receivers. A salesman named John Bussler said that CEI had one like McCord wanted, a Receiving System Type RS-111-1B-12, but that it had to be refurbished, so McCord should call back in a few weeks.[7]

On Thursday, 20 April 1972, James McCord went to the Howard Johnson motel across the street from the Watergate complex and placed a deposit on room 419, which faced DNC headquarters. He reserved it in the name of his own company, McCord Associates, and said he would be back soon to actually book the dates he would have it.[8] The call to Watkins-Johnson and the deposit on room 419 were prior to the alleged closed-door meeting between Magruder and Liddy at the “end of April,” indicating that McCord already was planning an operation involving DNC headquarters at the Watergate before any order was issued for a break-in there.[3]:78-81

On Monday, 24 April 1972, McCord placed an order with Bell & Howell for four Kelcom III transceivers, or walkie-talkies. Although the walkie-talkies were ostensibly for security at the upcoming Republican National Convention, then planned for San Diego, California, McCord specified on the order frequencies for usage exclusively in Washington, D.C.[9] This is further evidence of McCord’s prior knowledge of plans for a clandestine operation in D.C.[3]:80-81

On Monday, 1 May 1972, McCord again called the Watkins-Johnson Company, CEI division, seeking information on the surveillance receiver he had called about earlier—which could be used to monitor electronic eavesdropping devices. He arranged with salesman Roy Scherrer to come pick it up soon and to pay cash for it.[10]

Later on 1 May, McCord placed a late-night phone call to a former FBI agent living in Connecticut named Alfred C. Baldwin III. McCord hired Baldwin sight-unseen, over the phone, offering Baldwin work in Washington, D.C., starting the following morning. McCord testified in Congress that he had selected Baldwin’s name from a registry published by the Society of Former Special Agents of the FBI to work for CRP, but investigative reporter Jim Hougan has described Baldwin as “somehow special and perhaps well known to McCord.”[11]:135 Investigative author Ashton Gray says that the weight of evidence “supports the conclusion that Baldwin had been hand-selected well in advance by CIA.”[3]:34 Baldwin ultimately would be assigned by McCord to use the surveillance receiver McCord had arranged that day to purchase.

Baldwin arrived in D.C. the following morning, 2 May, and initially served as a bodyguard to Martha Mitchell, the wife of John Mitchell, who was living in Washington. Baldwin accompanied Mrs. Mitchell on a trip to the Midwest and to New York for six days.[3]:34-35 On Friday, 5 May, while Baldwin was away, McCord went back to the Howard Johnson and activated his deposit to rent room 419, giving an “in date” of 5 May, even though McCord had reserved it with a deposit over two weeks earlier.[3]:87

Baldwin returned to D.C. with Martha Mitchell on Monday, 8 May. On their return, Mrs. Mitchell described Baldwin as “the gauchest character I’ve ever met,”[11]:136 saying to her personal secretary that he was “pushy, vocal, and someone who would not stay in the background.”[12] McCord relieved Baldwin of bodyguard duties for Mrs. Mitchell, instructing him to stay in room 419 at the Howard Johnson’s motel across the street from the Watergate complex. According to records of the FBI, McCord was directly paying Baldwin in cash, as well as paying for the motel room. In a little over six weeks, McCord gave Baldwin cash amounts totaling at least $2,200—which in 2017 dollars is equivalent to over $12,800.[3]:75

On Wednesday, 10 May 1972, McCord traveled to Rockville, Maryland, where he purchased the CEI Receiving System Type RS-111-1B-12, serial number 132, from Watkins-Johnson Company, paying $3,500 in cash. (That is approximately $20,400 in 2017 dollars.) It is the only such receiver McCord bought. He described it in Congressional testimony as “a very sophisticated and complex receiver with what is called a very high degree of sensitivity; that is, it is capable of picking up very weak transmissions.” It could only pick up signals from one transmitter at a time.[4]

On Monday, 22 May 1972, six men from Miami arrived by plane in Washington, D.C. They had been “recruited” by Hunt and Liddy to carry out a mission in D.C. They were: Bernard Barker, Eugenio Martínez, Virgilio Gonzales, Frank Sturgis, Renaldo Pico, and Filipe DeDiego. They all were traveling under aliases.[13] All of them had at one time worked for the CIA. One of them, Gonzales, was actively on CIA payroll and had a CIA case officer in Miami that he reported to. Gonzales was a locksmith and had been “recruited” by Liddy and Hunt to pick locks.[3]:xvi-xvii[4]

The “first break-in” at DNC headquarters—Memorial Day weekend 1972

According to Congressional and court testimony by the perpetrators—much of it irreconcilably contradictory—three separate attempts were made to break in to DNC headquarters in the Watergate over Memorial Day weekend in 1972: 26, 27, and 28 May. The first two attempts ostensibly failed. The third attempt purportedly was successful.[11]:139-157

Friday, 26 May 1972: The “Ameritas dinner” break-in attempt

Baldwin claimed in his Congressional testimony that on 26 May, he drove from Hamden, Connecticut, where he had gone to pick up his car, to Washington, D.C.—a distance of about 300 miles (500 km)—returning to room 419 at the Howard Johnson motel across from the Watergate. From Baldwin’s testimony:

ALFRED BALDWIN: When I entered the room, there were numerous items of electronic equipment in the room. When I entered the room, it was approximately 2 in the afternoon, I believe, about that hour. Mr. McCord was in the room and operating one of the receiver units. At that time, I did not know what it was. He explained it.

— Alfred Baldwin testimony, U.S. Congress[14]

Baldwin went on to claim in testimony that Hunt and Liddy came to room 419 that afternoon, and McCord introduced them to each other. Baldwin also claimed that he was there at the motel that night with McCord when an alleged first attempt to break into the DNC headquarters took place.

Yet the FBI located an eyewitness who emphatically placed Baldwin 300 miles (500 km) away, in Hamden, Connecticut, that night, at a social event:

John S. Dantscher . . . said [that] on the evening of May 26, 1972, he and his wife attended a social gathering at the home of Walter Walsh, 126 Bedford Avenue, Hamden, Connecticut, which was also attended by Walsh’s mother, Alfred Baldwin, and John Dantscher’s mother. During this social affair Baldwin presented Dantscher and his wife with photographs taken at their wedding.

— SAs Emmett J. Michaels and SA Robert C. Puckett, Federal Bureau of Investigation[15]

During re-interview . . . Dantscher again referred to personal date book and confirmed date of social affair as May 26 . . . He stated that according to his own notations in date book, he attended business affair at local high school on May 24; on May 25 he attended a dinner engagement with other friends; and on May 27 he departed New Haven area on weekend cruise in Atlantic Ocean. He is positive event attended by Baldwin at Walsh home was held on Friday, May 26 1972.

— Special Agent in Charge, New Haven, Federal Bureau of Investigation[16][3]:38, 111

Bernard Barker had scheduled a dinner for “businessmen” to be held that Friday night, 26 May, in the Watergate complex’s Continental Room, which had a door connecting to a corridor leading to elevators and stairs. Barker had booked the room in the name of a shell corporation he had set up in Florida: Ameritas, Inc. According to Congressional and courtroom testimony by the perpetrators, plus personal accounts and autobiographies, the plan was to stretch out the dinner until there was an opportunity for the men to slip through the connecting door and gain access to the DNC headquarters by staircase or elevator. “The key” to the plan according to Liddy, was for McCord to disable an alarm on the connecting door, but McCord didn’t show up for the dinner, so didn’t disable the alarm, which is what supposedly foiled the plan.[3]:107-123 Jim Hougan, though, established that no alarm ever had existed on the connecting door at all.[11]:145

Liddy claimed in his autobiography, Will, that he was at the dinner, and ate McCord’s meal. Later, though, Liddy said under oath that he “was not at that dinner.”[2]

Hunt claimed in testimony and in his autobiography that he inadvertently had gotten locked inside the Continental Room, along with lockpicker Virgilio Gonzales, and that both men spent the night locked up there until they were able to slip out after daybreak—purportedly because of the alarm (which never existed). Gonzales gave similar testimony in Congress.[17][18][11]:139-148[3]:107-123 Yet Alfred Baldwin claimed that he saw Hunt in a car later that night outside McGovern headquarters in D.C.[19][3]:125-134

Concerning the many contradictions in the co-conspirators’ claims about that night, Hougan says: “Clearly, a hoax is in the works. For whatever reason, Hunt and Gonzalez [sic, Gonzales] have connived with McCord—and perhaps with others—to lie about their activities and whereabouts.”[11]:148 Gray says the reason was “to give James McCord, E. Howard Hunt, and G. Gordon Liddy alibis for their whereabouts on Memorial Day weekend 1972.”[3]:73

Saturday, 27 May 1972: The “wrong lockpicks” break-in attempt

According to conflicting accounts by several of the co-conspiritors in testimony and autobiographies, a “second attempt” to break into DNC headquarters was made during the night of Saturday, 27 May 1972. Ostensibly, the would-be burglars managed to get inside the Watergate complex through a door in the parking garage, and up to the floor where DNC headquarters were, but the break-in attempt failed because Virgilio Gonzales had brought the wrong lockpicks. Hunt and Liddy claim that he was put on a plane to fly back to Miami that day and get the correct lockpicks.[11]:148-151[3]:134-140 According to Gray: “Other than the testimony of the co-conspirators, there is no evidence to support or verify any of the accounts of a second break-in attempt on the night of Saturday, 27 May 1972.”

Sunday, 28 May 1972: The “successful” break-in attempt

The Watergate co-conspirators have claimed that on the night of 28 May 1972, they successfully entered the Watergate complex and made their way to DNC headquarters, where Gonzales successfully picked the lock on the front door, gaining them entrance.[4]

McCord claims to have planted two electronic eavesdropping devices—or “bugs”—on phones in DNC headquarters that night, but he has contradicted himself in different accounts, and has contradicted Liddy, who ostensibly had set the priorities and “targets” for the bugs.[3]:41-50, 141-149 In Congressional testimony, McCord said he’d had instructions from Liddy to place one bug on “specifically, Mr. O’Brien’s telephone extension,” and to install the other where it “might provide information of interest.” [4] Larry O’Brien was the national chairman of the Democratic National Committee—but O’Brien had “moved his offices, and most of his files” to Miami at the time.[11]:81 In McCord’s autobiographical account A Piece of Tape, he claimed he had been asked by Liddy to “install only one device,” but had brought along another as “insurance,” in case it was needed. According to McCord’s accounts, he placed the first bug on the telephone of Robert Spencer Oliver, who was the executive director of the Association of State Democratic Chairmen, not on O’Brien’s phone, then planted the “insurance” bug on an extension that McCord says was O’Brien’s.[3]:41-50, 141-149

Liddy has claimed that there never were any instructions for McCord to plant two phone bugs. According to his testimony under oath:

LIDDY: So far as I understood, they did what they were supposed to do, which was to place a tap on the telephone in the office of Lawrence O’Brien and to place a room monitoring device in the office of Lawrence O’Brien. … There were two things they were to do. One was the telephone of Larry O’Brien, wiretap, and the other was a room monitoring device of Larry O’Brien’s office.

— G. Gordon Liddy, videotaped deposition[2]

Regardless of the claimed number of bugs or locations, McCord had purchased only one receiver that could pick up a signal from any such bug, and it could only receive from one bug at a time, monitored through headphones. According to McCord’s claims in Congressional testimony, it took him “about two days” to tune in even one such bug, and McCord had experience with such electronic devices. It would have been impossible for Baldwin, or anyone, to monitor two such bugs, even if more than one bug ever had been installed and working.[3]:41-50

The FBI found no evidence that O’Brien’s phone ever was bugged.[20] In fact, the only independent evidence that ever has existed concerning the alleged bugs came from two separate and thorough security surveys of DNC headquarters instigated by the FBI. The first was conducted by the Chief of Security of the Chesapeake and Potomac Telephone Company—who had installed the phones—on Saturday, 17 June and Sunday, 18 June 1972. They physically inspected “all telephone installations and telephone equipment” in the DNC, and reported to the FBI that no bugs were found. Another thorough inspection was conducted by “technically trained agents of the FBI Laboratory” on Thursday, 29 June and Friday, 30 June 1972. They found no “electronic surveillance equipment.”[13][3]:41-50, 141-149

Neither the FBI nor any trier of fact ever had any physical evidence that any such “first break-in” of DNC headquarters actually took place, or that any bugs ever were planted in DNC over Memorial Day weekend 1972; the only evidence ever used consisted of the conflicting and contradictory “confessions” and testimony of the co-conspirators themselves.[3]:73-151

Alleged “photographs” of the “first break-in”

On 22 June 1972, the FBI located a witness named Michael Richardson who said he had developed and printed 38 exposed negatives at a photography processing shop in Miami. The film had been dropped off there on 10 June by Bernard Barker, one of the Watergate co-conspirators. According to Richardson, the photos were of documents that were “headed Chairman Democratic National Committee,” and a few of them had the name of Lawrence O’Brien on them. Richardson said that the documents had been photographed while being held down on a shag carpet by hands wearing “clear type gloves.”[21]

There was no shag carpet anywhere in DNC headquarters, or in the motel rooms that had been occupied by Barker and his fellow co-conspirators during the Memorial Day weekend operation.[11]:156-157

Also, while Barker claimed in his Congressional testimony that he and Martinez had been assigned to photograph documents during the purported “first break-in,” he also said that they never had been in Lawrence O’Brien’s office.[4][3]:580

The photographs that Michael Richardson described to the FBI were never found or submitted as physical evidence in any trial or hearing.

Alleged Baldwin “logs” of wiretaps

Alfred Baldwin claims that on McCord’s orders, he used the CEI Receiving System Type RS-111-1B-12 during the several weeks between 29 May and 17 June 1972 to monitor one bug in DNC headquarters, ostensibly one planted on the phone of Spencer Oliver. Liddy, McCord, and Baldwin all claim that one of the two purported bugs wasn’t working—which was convenient, because Baldwin only had one receiver to monitor.[4][3]:41-50, 141-149

Baldwin also claimed that as part of his monitoring duties, he made “logs”—at first by hand, then using an electric typewriter that McCord furnished—to document the phone conversations he was eavesdropping on. In Congressional testimony, Baldwin claimed under oath that he typed the conversations “almost verbatim” as he was listening to them through headphones:

SENATOR ERVIN: The information you got while you were at the Howard Johnson from the Democratic headquarters, what form was it in when you gave it to Mr. McCord?

ALFRED BALDWIN: The initial day, the first day that I recorded the conversations was on a yellow sheet. On Memorial Day … when he returned to the room he brought an electric typewriter, he instructed me in the upper left-hand corner to print, or by typewriter, the unit, the date, the page and then proceed down into the body and in chronological order put the time and then the contents of the conversation. I used— As unit I used the exact frequency that we were monitoring, and after about two days Mr. McCord came back and said change that; anybody reading these things is going to know the frequency.

SENATOR ERVIN: And you typed a summary of the conversations you overheard?

ALFRED BALDWIN: Well, they weren’t exactly a summary, I would say almost verbatim, Senator.

SENATOR ERVIN: Almost verbatim.

— Alfred Baldwin III, U.S. Congress, testimony of witnesses[4]

Only Liddy, McCord, and Baldwin ever claimed to have seen the purported Baldwin logs, and no such logs have ever been in evidence in any trial or hearing. According to Liddy, he destroyed them. Liddy’s secretary Sally Harmony testified in Congress that she typed up logs that she thought might have come from eavesdropped conversations, but she did not type them from any logs created by Baldwin; she typed out logs that Liddy had dictated for her to type.[4][3]:51-70

The 16-17 June 1972 break-in

G. Gordon Liddy has claimed in sworn testimony that on 12 June 1972, in another closed-door meeting, Jeb Magruder, and Magruder alone, ordered him to “go back into” DNC headquarters, purportedly to “fix” a defective bug,[22] and to photograph documents in Lawrence O’Brien’s desk.[2]

As for the allegedly defective bug, McCord only had purchased one receiver usable for that kind of monitoring, so attempting to install or fix a second bug would have been pointless—if there had been any bugs in DNC headquarters at all, but the FBI never found any. [23] As for O’Brien’s desk, O’Brien had relocated his operations to Miami in preparation for the upcoming Democratic National Convention.

Nevertheless, five of the co-conspirators broke into DNC headquarters during the night of Friday, 16 June, continuing into the early hours of Saturday, 17 June: James McCord, Bernard Barker, Virgilio Gonzales, Eugenio Martinez, and Frank Sturgis. This time, they didn’t bother with the finesse of Gonzales picking the DNC headquarters door lock; they took it off its hinges.[11]:198[3]:446

Shortly after midnight on June 17, 1972, Frank Wills, a security guard at the Watergate Complex, noticed tape covering the latches on some of the doors in the complex staircase leading from the underground parking garage to several offices (allowing the doors to close but remain unlocked). He removed the tape, thinking that it might have been maintenance crews. But when he returned an hour later and discovered that someone had retaped the locks, Wills called the police. McCord had done the retaping, even knowing that Wills would be making rounds again.[11]:185-204 Hougan says: “The conclusion is inescapable that McCord sabotaged the June 16 break-in to protect an ongoing CIA operation.”[11]:212

The five men were discovered inside the DNC office and arrested. Although McCord had electronic equipment on him at the time of his arrest, and other electronic equipment later was discovered in Hunt’s White House safe, none of it ever had been installed in DNC headquarters. Gray has described the equipment and other evidence found in the possession of the perpetrators as “theatrical props planted to be ‘found.'”[3]:62 Eventually they were charged with attempted burglary and attempted interception of telephone and other communications.

On September 15, a grand jury indicted them, as well as Hunt and Liddy,[24] for conspiracy, burglary, and violation of federal wiretapping laws. The five burglars who broke into the office were tried by a jury, Judge John Sirica officiating, and either pled guilty or were convicted on January 30, 1973.[25]

On the morning of 18 June 1972, G. Gordon Liddy called Jeb Magruder in Los Angeles and informed him that “the four men arrested with McCord were Cuban freedom fighters, whom Howard Hunt recruited.” Initially Nixon’s organization and the White House quickly went to work to cover up the crime and any evidence that might have damaged the president and his reelection.[26]

Attack of Wikipedia’s Pack of Deep-State Disinformation Jackals

Celestia Jung’s accurate, factual, and very well-sourced work had hardly been on Wikipedia for 24 hours before it was under attack by its Big-Brother Thought Police. As a public service, we are going to reproduce here the exact messages from the “Talk” section of the Wikipedia “Watergate scandal” pages showing the depth of dishonesty, bigotry, and holier-than-thou disinformation censorship being run there:

Celestia Jung 21:33, 15 May 2017 (UTC)
I have made numerous edits to the first section, renaming it and rewriting much of it to reflect accurate and verifiable facts. In doing so, I added 26 new references, including Congressional documents and FBI reports. I also added many citations to some of those sources where the previous content had a lot of “citation needed” codes. I have made every good faith effort to make this a comprehensive and informative article in accordance with Wikipedia policies. A great deal of work has gone into this edit and finding reputable sources. Please consider carefully before undoing this work. Thanks.

I didn’t read it carefully yet, but I skimmed through it. As far as I can tell, it is a good edit.

Celestia Jung 15:44, 16 May 2017 (UTC)
Thank you. A lot of research and work went into it, and there is only so much time I can devote to it, but I hope to be able to enhance some of the other sections with solid citations, many of them directly from the FBI’s Watergate files.

Can someone please review the edits added by [[User:Celestia Jung]] between May 12 and 15? The contributions seem to be mostly or entirely sourced to ”Watergate: The Hoax”, a poorly referenced book which advances a Scientologist conspiracy theory that Watergate was a CIA operation to cover up an assassination attempt on L. Ron Hubbard.

Celestia Jung|talk]]) 17:42, 17 May 2017 (UTC)
“Poorly referenced”? You obviously don’t have or haven’t read the book. It is 600 pages long with 495 citations, many of them the original FBI documents, many of them ones that never have been published, analyzed, or cited in any other work on Watergate. Also, your allegation that my edits were “mostly or entirely” sourced from that book is false on its face. I cited at least 26 different sources in my edits, including Hougan’s “Secret Agenda,” quotations from actual Watergate legal proceedings and Congressional hearings, and quite a few of the original FBI reports. As for your “conspiracy theory” allegations, there is not a single word of any “conspiracy theory” in my edits. They contain solid, irrefutable facts, solidly sourced. My edits also don’t contain a single word about any “Scientologist” connection, so it sounds like you’re simply trying to foment a biased attack based on—well, based on nothing at all. Your comment is baseless and frivolous, and antipathetic to the intent of Talk pages. If you have a valid complaint about the content, then please refer specifically to which stated fact you challenge, and give a sound, rational reason for challenging it.

EDITED TO ADD: By the way, the entire government case, in court and Congress, was never anything but an elaborate “conspiracy theory.” If you have a non-conspiracy theory of Watergate, how about you present it for all of us? I sure would like to see it. Otherwise, it isn’t the fact of “conspiracy theory ” you object to; you just don’t want anything exposed or documented that might in any way damage your own “conspiracy theory.”

Special:Contribution| 20:08, 17 May 2017 (UTC)
Right. I see you also referenced the equally dubious ”Secret Agenda”, as well as several original documents. My concern is that you have inserted a great deal of heterodox analysis without flagging it as such, possibly including original research. Unfortunately, I don’t have the time to sort through it all at the moment, hence my plea for someone else to review it. I suppose I’ll get around to it eventually.

User:Location|Location 22:57, 17 May 2017 (UTC)
Yeah, Ashton Gray and Jim Hougan are definitely not [[WP:RELIABLE SOURCES]]. On that alone those edits should be reverted entirely. This requires many more eyes than I have, so I’ve posted a notice at [[WP:FTN]].

Saw this on FNB. Manually reverted new additions that added info based on Fringe or Primary sources. There may be usable material that I removed, if so, it’s still in the article history.

CHALET REPORTS NOTE: All of Celestia Jung’s edits, additions, and references were wiped out, with the article reverted to its fantasy fiction. Jung attempted to reinstate the edits, additions, and references, which were promptly “reverted” to the original lies and disinformation. Jung was then threatened with having his or her account revoked if there were any more attempts to revert to Jung’s edited version of the facts. Jung then told them what they needed to hear:

Celestia Jung 06:31, 18 May 2017 (UTC)
Those of you who have contributed to this “reversion” are not gatekeepers of truth or fact; you are the most base vandals of knowledge. In a cavalier sweep, you have wiped out of existence inarguable, well-documented, incontrovertible facts, and replaced them with your own reprehensible brand of pure fantasy, which you are knowingly, willfully foisting off on the world at large as “truth.” It is pure fiction, and you peddle it as fact. You are beneath contempt. You are beneath snake-oil salesmen. You are self-anointed, arrogant, disdainful High Priests of your own pet theories and delusions, which you shove down the throats of the rest of the world in unspeakable, haughty totalitarianism—claiming, of course, the “moral high ground.”

You believe in nonexistent “bugs” that the FBI proved conclusively never were installed in DNC headquarters. So you erase out of existence every documented FACT that proves that your delusional beliefs are as insane as belief in gryphons or unicorns, and shove your “religion” of Watergate down the throats of the rest of the world, as though it’s your Eucharist. Not ONE of you can document the existence, ever, of a single working bug planted in DNC headquarters. No, you can’t, any more than you can document the unicorn in your back yard or your stigmata.

You believe in nonexistent “logs” by Baldwin that never existed in the real world. You cannot document the existence, ever, of even one such log—just as not one of you can document the Virgin Mary or Tinkerbell coming and standing at the foot of your bed. But you push this swill off on the world, because it’s your religion, and you are the High Priests of sheer fiction.

You cannot document the existence, ever, of any “alarm” on the door of the Continental Room of the Watergate, because one never existed. It is sheer mythology—yet your ENTIRE BELIEF in the “official story” of Watergate hinges ENTIRELY on blind-faith belief that there WAS an alarm, that there HAD TO BE an alarm where none existed. Why? Because all of the disciples of your mad-dog religion, all of your so-called “reliable sources,” have TOLD you that there had to be an alarm there, otherwise the burglars would have broken in on Friday, 26 May 1972—even though the FBI PROVED that Alfred Baldwin was 300 miles away that night, so could not possibly have participated in the lying FICTION that he foisted off on Congress and the world. Oh, but you lap up the sewage spilled in gallons by Baldwin as though it were the blood of one of your saints, because without his lies—which have been proved conclusively as lies—your entire mythology that you reign as High Priests over goes up in smoke. And that would be a supreme waste of perfectly good smoke.

You sate yourselves like vampires on “reliable sources” like the L.A. Times, who published Baldwin’s original scandalous lies that he had driven back to D.C. on Thursday, 25 May. Have you ever bothered to check your so-called “reliable source”? Well, HAVE YOU? No, you haven’t, because you cling like blithering psychos to your Watergate religion—which is sheer fantasy—and you make sure that all heretics speaking actual facts are excommunicated, banished, silenced. If you had ever bothered to check your “reliable source,” the L.A. Times, you would have learned that the FBI proved conclusively that Baldwin’s car was STILL IN SERVICE AT BRANHAVEN CHRYSLER-PLYMOUTH, just outside of New Haven, Connecticut all day on 25 May. Did you bother to check? No, you didn’t, did you? Ashton Gray did. His book is the first and only book in the annals of all the millions of gallons of ink to find that in the FBI files and reveal the truth to the world. That’s exactly why Baldwin had to change his story in Congress, moving the date of his return to Washington to the next day, 26 May. The only problem is that the FBI also discovered that he was still in Connecticut on THAT day, too. And the ONE AND ONLY SOURCE IN THE HISTORY OF WATERGATE COVERAGE who ever found that out was Ashton Gray. And you call his book “weird”? You have the reprehensible gall to call Gray “unreliable” as a source?

Well, of course you do. You are the High Priests of Lies, Mythology, Fiction, and Fantasy Posing as “Fact.” Anything or anyone challenging your religious fanaticism with actual FACTS has to be pilloried, branded as a heretic, and burned at the stake—fed with the flames of your oh-so-righteous book burning.

You are worse than any vandals who ever trampled truth into the ground. You are worse than those who sacked and destroyed the Library of Alexandria. You poison the very groundwater of mankind’s knowledge with your revolting, autocratic, tyrannical priesthood of arrogance and disdain.

The saddest part, though, is that you believe in fairy tales, and don’t even know it. That kind of ignorance is its own reward.


And so, as it stands right now, Wikipedia’s “Watergate scandal” page is the biggest scandal of all: back to the same old stale and moldy government-packaged conspiracy theory that the world has accepted as the “Official Story” of Watergate. And it is a lie. It is a vicious lie. It was a never anything but a deadly hoax on the United States—and on the world—that overthrew a president, and launched the CIA’s longest-running, blackest secret program in its history.

We have no idea what happened to Celestia Jung. We urge him or her to contact us at because we always can use good, smart, dedicated researchers who have the integrity to follow the truth, and tell the truth, no matter where it goes.

As for Wikipedia, it should be shamed into the infamy it richly deserves. These words of Celestia Jung should be Wikipedia’s eulogy:

You are the most base vandals of knowledge. … You are beneath snake-oil salesmen. You are self-anointed, arrogant, disdainful High Priests of your own pet theories and delusions, which you shove down the throats of the rest of the world in unspeakable, haughty totalitarianism—claiming, of course, the “moral high ground.”

“Watergate: The Hoax”—CENSORED by the Education Forum and Wikipedia!

Saturday, 8 October 2016 by

In an absolutely stunning turn of events, we have learned that a major worldwide forum—known, ironically, as the Education Forum—has stealthily censored, by deleting, an excerpt from our landmark book by Ashton Gray, Watergate: The Hoax.

On 14 January 2016, author Ashton Gray had posted an excerpt from Chapter 1, “Invisible Contracts,” in the Watergate section of the forum, which is in the category called Controversial Issues in History. A little over two weeks later, on 31 January, Mr. Gray got a private message from one of the administrators of the forum, James R. Gordon, suspending Mr. Gray’s posting privileges, claiming that it was “likely legal action may well be taken against” Mr. Gray “by a fellow member”—but with absolutely no reason for any such claim of “legal action,” and no identification of the mysterious “fellow member” of the Education Forum threatening any such legal action.

Less than an hour later, Ashton Gray responded:


Thank you for your message.

The fact that someone has claimed to you that they have a “likely” cause of legal action against me, with no specifics, and that you have communicated that to unspecified “administrators,” and that you have taken action to my detriment as a result, unfortunately makes you a party to whatever arises from this defamation.

I therefore have to respectfully request that you supply to me at your earliest possible opportunity:

1. The name and contact information of the person claiming to have a cause of action.

2. All written communication related to this defamation.

3. The names and contact information of each other person to whom this defamation has been spread.

4. An address for you for possible service of process.

Kind regards,


Within only a few hours, James Gordon wrote back to back-peddle, saying that the administrators may have placed Mr. Gray “at a disadvantage,” and that Gordon was going to “take counsel on this whole issue.” Meanwhile, he restored Mr. Gray’s posting privileges—but he refused to tell Mr. Gray the name of the person who had threatened legal action in the first place. All he would say was that the complaint had come to him “in a PM [private message],” adding this curious note: “it should not take you long to work out who it is.” Not long indeed…

Douglas “Ragtop” Caddy and the Mysterious Disappearing Excerpt

Recently one of our researchers went to find the excerpt from Watergate: The Hoax that Mr. Gray had posted to the Education Forum on 14 January 2016 that is about a man named Douglas Caddy. Caddy was the attorney who “gratuitously” (according to the FBI) showed up to represent the Watergate burglars when they were arrested on 17 June 1972. Naturally, Caddy looms large in the book, and the excerpt about him from Chapter 1 contains crucial information, much of it never collected in one place. But when our research went to the Eduction Forum to find it…

The excerpt had disappeared! Someone at the Education Forum CENSORED the excerpt by quietly DELETING IT, and never told Mr. Gray, or anybody at Chalet Books!

This isn’t the act of “educators;” this is the act of dictators and totalitarians! Who are they protecting? What are they trying to hide? You can decide for yourself, because here is the exact excerpt from Watergate: The Hoax that THE EDUCATION FORUM CENSORED:

CIA Eagle Outline Art-4

Douglas “Ragtop” Caddy must have been stone blind to invisible contracts, even though they were flapping all around him, and he seems to have had more than a few of his own. On the morning of the arrests of five men in the Watergate—James McCord, Bernard Barker, Frank Sturgis, Virgilio Gonzales, and Eugenio Martinez—Caddy popped up at the jail like a Jack-in-the-box saying he was there to represent them, and nobody could figure out how he got there or why. The FBI files on Watergate contain no fewer than 10 instances of the following statement or some variation of it, always containing the word “gratuitously”:

Michael Douglas Caddy, also known as Douglas Caddy, is an Attorney at Law having offices at 1250 Connecticut Avenue, N.W., Washington, D. C., and is associated with the law firm Gall, Lane, Powell, and Kilcullen. Caddy gratuitously appeared at the Metropolitan Police Department where subjects were taken after being arrested and claimed to represent them. Prior to Caddy’s arrival, none of the subjects made any phone calls which might have precipitated his appearance.[25]

Perhaps the initial representation of the five Watergate suspects constitutes one of the most invisible contracts of all. Although the FBI reported that Caddy “claimed to represent them” and the Washington Post described Caddy as “one of the attorneys for the five men,” Caddy had no experience at all in criminal cases. He had brought a criminal lawyer named Joseph Rafferty along with him to the D.C. Metropolitan Police Department that day. Rafferty later told the FBI that Caddy had “asked him to defend the five subjects involved in a break-in at the Watergate.” To further cloud the issue, Caddy later was declared in contempt of court for refusing to answer a set of questions before the Watergate grand jury, but the reason he gave was an attorney-client relationship with E. Howard Hunt—not with the original Watergate Five. [More about Caddy, Rafferty, and the events surrounding the arrests is covered in Part IV, “The Break-in That Was.” —Ed.]

Before Caddy gained notoriety as the first attorney associated in the media with the Watergate suspects, he had spent close to four years in the offices of Governor Nelson Rockefeller in New York, from 1962 to 1966. This is the very same Nelson Rockefeller who would become Vice President of the United States under Gerald Ford just a few years later, when Nixon was cut off at the knees by Watergate. It is the same Nelson Rockefeller who later would chair a committee specifically empanelled to investigate “CIA Activities Within the United States,” but who somehow would manage to miss the three Scientology OTs that the CIA had under contract in the United States—and under Rockefeller’s nose—to develop the parapsychology program later called “remote viewing.” Yes, that Nelson Rockefeller.

Caddy technically worked for Nelson Rockefeller’s lieutenant governor, Malcolm Wilson, but they all were in the same townhouse, which was owned by Nelson Rockefeller and housed his office as governor. In 1966 Caddy went from the Rockefeller clan to the General Foods Corporation, and in late 1969 that firm sent him to work in the Washington, D.C., offices of the Robert R. Mullen Company. That company name may sound familiar.

Caddy served at Mullen as public relations liaison for General Foods, and though he worked at the Mullen offices, his contract with Mullen was invisible: “At no time was I ever on the payroll of the Mullen Company. I was exclusively employed by General Foods.”[26]

Caddy has since “concluded that General Foods knew the Mullen Company was a CIA front and that General Foods cooperated with the cover operation.”[27] He has gone so far as to say: “The Mullen Company had been incorporated by the CIA in 1959 and served as a front for the intelligence agency. The Mullen Company offices around the world were in fact operations of the CIA and General Foods was aware of this and a participant in the overall intelligence scheme.”[28] Yet Caddy claims that he just had no idea that he was completely surrounded by CIA spooks when he was at Mullen, or that Robert Mullen’s company was a CIA front.

It’s certainly rational to wonder why CIA-savvy General Foods, working with CIA-front company Mullen in furtherance of CIA aims and operations, would send a CIA-ignorant innocent into the D.C. lion’s den. But “Ragtop” Caddy may be the most CIA-involved non-CIA rube ever, at least to hear him tell it—a latter-day Pantagleize who stumbles and bumbles, all unawares, from one CIA connection to another, up to his unplucked eyebrows in dirty doings, but utterly innocent and naive, being used and abused by these unscrupulous covert intelligence operatives that he just can’t seem to get away from.

For instance, in the “late 1950s and early 1960s,” Caddy had “worked closely with” William F. Buckley, Jr.—that’s “former” CIA agent William F. Buckley, Jr., who had been an agent under the direction of E. Howard Hunt in Mexico City during the 1950s. What a cozy little group. But Caddy insists that he “did not know” about Buckley having been a CIA agent until Hunt told him in 1970 at Mullen. Of course, that would mean that Hunt had no problem offhandedly giving up the identity of CIA agents to a casual non-CIA business acquaintance. Naturally.

Caddy’s connection with Buckley purportedly came about because Caddy had been a founding member of the Young Americans for Freedom (YAF), an organization that Buckley championed. One indication of Caddy’s character—a phrase that may ultimately gain infamy as an oxymoron—is embodied in a smash-and-grab related to YAF that author John A. Andrew III has labeled “The Douglas Caddy Affair.”

In early July [1962], Caddy, [William] Cotter, and another individual (“a big guy”) barged into the YAF offices, overpowered the two YAFers on duty, and made off with the general membership list, the general ledger, and a list of four or five thousand financial contributors to YAF. Caddy apparently photocopied them at his Chamber of Commerce offices, returning the originals to YAF a few days later. Robert Bauman threatened Caddy with a felony prosecution, and Caddy turned over the copies to YAF. He was then fired by the Chamber of Commerce.[29]

It must have been either a matter of Providence or a matter of the Central Intelligence Agency that Caddy got slid over from the Rockefeller offices first to CIA handmaiden General Foods, then got injected directly into the CIA front Mullen Company just months before Hunt got placed there. However either of them got there, Caddy claims that Robert Mullen called both Caddy and Hunt into his office one day after Hunt had been there “a few months.” According to Caddy’s account:

I first met Howard Hunt in 1970 . . . The occasion of our first meeting was Howard’s coming on board as an employee at the Robert Mullen & Company upon his “retiring” from the CIA.

. . . A few months [after] our initial meeting, Robert Mullen called us into his office and surprised us by saying that he desired to retire and wanted to sell the Mullen Company. He then asked if we would be interested in purchasing it.

. . . Then one day Mullen announced out of the blue that he had decided to sell his company to Robert Bennett, a Mormon who was the son of the senior U.S. Senator from Utah. What I came to learn years later was that Mullen, Bennett and Hunt knew something that had been kept from me, namely that the Mullen Company had been incorporated by the CIA in 1959 and served as a front for the intelligence agency. [30]

That all sounds quite reasonable—except that in his 1974 autobiography, E. Howard Hunt claims that Robert Mullen talked to him about buying the company in an interview before Hunt left the CIA and took the job at Mullen. Although Caddy is mentioned by Hunt, there is nothing about Caddy having been present at Hunt’s second job interview with Mullen— and of course Caddy wouldn’t have been present:

During a second meeting Mullen told me that he was getting on in years, the company was comfortably established and he was casting about for younger successors to take over the management and direction of the firm. One of Mullen’s accounts was the General Foods Corporation, whose Washington representative, Douglas Caddy, worked out of the Mullen offices. According to Mullen, with Caddy, myself and an as-yet-unselected individual [emphasis added], Mullen would be able to retire, leaving the business in the hands of this successor triumvirate.[31]

One problem with that is that Hunt had already told a different story under oath to the ill-fated Nedzi Committee, testifying on Thursday, 28 June 1973:

During one of my earlier interviews with Mr. Mullen prior to my retirement from CIA, and again [sic] prior to my being hired by the Mullen Co., Mr. Mullen indicated to me he had been in the public relations business for a number of years, that he was getting on in years himself, that he looked forward to retirement, and he had developed a plan under which he wanted to take in younger blood into the firm. He had in mind three candidates who would form a triumvirate, take over the firm and operate it, and he would be, in effect, a retired emeritus director of the company; he indicated to me a young man there in the office, an attorney from the General Foods Co., Douglas Caddy, would be one; I would be the second; and Bob Bennett, son of the Senator, would be the third [emphasis added].[32]

Hunt’s use of the phrase “an as-yet-unselected individual” in his autobiography is downright weird when compared to his prior sworn testimony, and to the story told to the FBI by the man that Mullen ultimately sold the company to: CIA-chummy Robert “Bob” Bennett. Bennett told the FBI agents investigating Watergate that Mullen had offered him the opportunity to buy the company long before either Caddy or Hunt had arrived on the scene. He said the offer was made about “four years” before Watergate, which would have made it sometime around June 1968. Bennett had turned the opportunity down at the time, but apparently had held onto an exclusive option from Mullen—another invisible contract—to buy the company. Then in 1970, after Hunt had been hired, Mullen came back to Bennett about buying the firm, according to the FBI report about its interview with Bennett:

Mr. Bennett stated that Mr. Mullen arranged a luncheon meeting approximately [June 1970] to discuss the details of the purchase of the company. Mr. Bennett said that he was surprised when Douglas Caddy and Everette Howard Hunt appeared at the meeting with Mr. Mullen.

Mr. Mullen explained that Douglas Caddy and Everette Howard Hunt had expressed a desire to purchase a portion of the stock of the Robert R. Mullen and Company and he, Mr. Mullen, felt that they should all get together and discuss this issue. Mr. Bennett said that he did discuss this matter with Douglas Caddy and Everette Howard Hunt, but no conclusion was reached at this luncheon meeting.

. . . Bennett stated that subsequent to this meeting with Mullen, Caddy and Hunt, he exercised his original option [emphasis added] for the exclusive purchase of the Robert R. Mullen and Company and completed the negotiations for the purchase of the company with Mr. Mullen.[33]

No matter how anybody tells it, it’s impossible for anyone with a measurable IQ to conceive of Robert Mullen proposing any sale of his CIA front company to Caddy unless Caddy were fully in on the CIA involvement—as were Mullen, Bennett and Hunt—and unless the CIA had fully approved of such a transaction before the first word was whispered about it. (When Caddy was asked directly about this obvious point in a public forum in 2005, he did what Caddy does so well: he ignored the question.) Even Sarah Silverman isn’t stupid enough to fall for that one. (Okay; maybe she is.)

As Bennett continued his interview with the FBI, he gave a few more insights into Caddy’s “character”:

Mr. Bennett stated that during this period of negotiations for the purchase of the company, both the Robert R. Mullen Company and the General Foods Corporation found Douglas Caddy’s performance to be unacceptable and Mr. Caddy was released from his position [emphasis added] by the General Foods Corporation. Bennett stated that through a contact, Mr. Mullen arranged for Douglas Caddy to obtain a position as an attorney with the law firm Gall, Lane, Powell and Kilcullen, Suite 707, 1250 Connecticut Avenue, N.W., WDC. Mr. Bennett noted that Douglas Caddy had left the Robert R. Mullen and Company before he [Bennett] assumed the duties as President of the company.[34]

Caddy didn’t see it that way at all:

After meeting Bennett and finding him to be an extremely strange man who exuded duplicity I chose to leave [emphasis added] General Foods and went to work as an attorney with the Washington law firm of Gall, Lane, Powell and Kilcullen.[35]

And Hunt claimed in his autobiography that “Douglas Caddy resigned [emphasis added] from General Foods and left the Mullen & Company office in favor of practicing law.”

It’s a grand waste of time to attempt to figure out which one was lying, and there’s one simple explanation for all of these contradictions: It’s nothing but a scripted “story” that they all kept trying to tell, but they all were lying. That’s what intelligence operatives do daily, professionally: They lie. Most likely, there never was any other plan than for Caddy and Hunt to link up with each other, and with the CIA operatives Mullen and Bennett. One primary reason is that black intelligence operations in Europe were going to be crucial to Watergate, the hoax [see Part III, The Beginning], and Caddy was crucial to the U.S. side of the fraud, but he needed to be actively practicing law to play his role.

Once “Ragtop” Caddy had motored on down to Gall, Lane, Powell and Kilcullen, he curiously became personal attorney for CIA veteran E. Howard Hunt in 1971, a relationship he would be in right up through his contempt of court conviction. Later chapters will demonstrate that Caddy or Baldwin or Hunt—or all of them—lied about the way Caddy was contacted on the morning of the arrests at the Watergate, and how Bernard Barker factored into the convoluted conflicting stories.

Caddy has stipulated to having met with Hunt and CIA goon-squad leader Bernard Barker in mid June 1971 at the Army-Navy Club in D.C., at a crucial time leading up to Watergate—but Caddy later told the FBI that they’d only had “a very amiable conversation concerning their mutual views on politics.” Of course they did. Yet when Caddy rewrote himself on 6 February 2006, he told it a different way:

My meeting came about by Howard Hunt inviting me to join him for lunch at the Navy Club [sic] in Washington, D.C. When I arrived there, Hunt and Barker were already seated and Hunt made the introductions. I do not recall exactly what we discussed but it most likely was Barker’s role under Hunt in the ill-fated invasion of Cuba that took place under President Kennedy, who later came to believe that he had been misled and misadvised by the CIA on the matter.[36]

From “I do not recall,” Caddy’s memory came back to him with stunning clarity only a little more than four months after that memory failure episode, because on 15 June 2006 he wrote:

When I arrived Hunt was already there with his guest, Bernard Barker. Hunt made the introductions. The luncheon conversation was almost entirely consumed with Hunt and Barker recounting their involvement in the ill-fated Bay of Pigs invasion of Cuba.[37]

First, the meeting was chit-chat about shared views on politics. Then it was “I do not recall exactly what we discussed.” Then it was “almost consumed” with stories of the Bay of Pigs fiasco—when both Hunt and Barker had been working for the CIA. That is extraordinary if Caddy’s accounting of when the meeting took place is true, because nearly every conversation in D.C. around that time was “consumed” with the topic of The New York Times having just published the Pentagon Papers on 13 June 1971—leaked to them by one Daniel Ellsberg. And only a few months later, E. Howard Hunt and Bernard Barker would be involved in the infamous “break-in” at the offices in Beverly Hills, California, of Dr. Lewis J. Fielding, Ellsberg’s psychiatrist. That ultimately would launch Ellsberg into mythological hero status—with some very material help from the CIA. But according to Caddy, we’re to believe that Hunt invited him to the luncheon so Caddy could sit and listen to Hunt and Barker drone on and on about the Bay of Pigs, never mentioning Ellsberg or the Pentagon Papers. Right-o.

Despite his self-contradictory stories, Caddy has the dubious distinction of being the only person in all the annals of Watergate ever to put Bernard Barker in Washington, D.C., around this crucial time. Neither Hunt nor Barker ever breathed a word of it.

Caddy had another meeting with Hunt in about mid-March of 1972—but this time along with the general counsel for the CIA, Lawrence R. Houston (whose name Caddy misstates, probably intentionally, as “Larry Huston”). This meeting was only about three months before the Watergate arrests, and it is illuminative to consider the CIA’s own biographical sketch of Houston:

The position of General Counsel was established within the CIA in 1947, the same year that President Truman signed into law the National Security Act that created the CIA. The first CIA General Counsel was Lawrence R. Houston, who had served as Assistant General Counsel of the Office of Strategic Services (OSS); General Counsel of its War Department successor organization, the Strategic Services Unit; and General Counsel of the Central Intelligence Group (CIG). Houston was a principal draftsman of the legislative proposal to abolish the CIG and establish the CIA, which was incorporated into the legislation that became the National Security Act.

When the CIG was abolished by the National Security Act of 1947, all CIG personnel were transferred by law to the newly established CIA, where Houston continued to serve as General Counsel. Within the next three years, two other attorneys, Walter Pforzheimer and John S. Warner, joined Houston as Assistant General Counsels. Together all three attorneys helped to draft the legislation that became the CIA Act of 1949, which gave CIA special statutory authorities unique within the federal government.[38]

This was no CIA file clerk meeting with Caddy and Hunt; this was the architect of the CIA. He, along with Hunt, had been there at its very inception. One former assistant general counsel of the CIA, A. John Radsan, has called Houston “the ultimate intelligence insider.”[39] That’s why it’s pointless to trot out here Caddy’s ridiculous “explanation” of what the meeting was about, just as in the case of his ridiculous “explanation” about the meeting with Hunt and Barker. The entire edifice of “Watergate” is built on the quicksand of just such wholly uncorroborated “explanations” of private meetings, all told by proven liars.

The relevant fact is that at the time of the meeting, Caddy was doing “volunteer” work for the Nixon campaign, part of which work just happened to involve reporting to G. Gordon Liddy to perform a number of “legal tasks.”[40] Yes: G. Gordon Liddy, Hunt’s co-mastermind of Watergate, the one with the CIA “special clearances.” And just a few weeks later, as of 25 April 1972, Caddy would be doing more “volunteer” work that he says was “under John Dean’s direction” right up until the Watergate arrests.[41] That’s the very John Dean who later will hide contents of E. Howard Hunt’s White House safe after the arrests, then give them to Acting Director of the FBI L. Patrick Gray, who will burn them.

“Ragtop” Caddy sure did get around, and the poor little man was just infested with CIA connections that he knew nothing about.

Caddy has said flat-out: “I have never been employed by the CIA or any other intelligence organization.” In the word-worminess of lawyers of Caddy’s ilk, that statement is almost certainly “true,” in one literal sense of not ever being on the payroll. In light of that, it’s worth considering testimony of the third Director of Central Intelligence, Roscoe H. Hillenkoetter, appearing before the Hoey Committee in the 1950s:

Hillenkoetter admitted that the CIA sometimes gave protection to homosexuals who came forward in exchange for their cooperation. “While this agency will never employ a homosexual on its rolls,” he insisted, “it might conceivably be necessary, and in the past has actually been valuable, to use known homosexuals as agents in the field.” The FBI had a similar policy of using and protecting homosexual informers. So while claiming homosexuals threatened national security, government officials also used them to protect it.[42]

At all times relevant to Watergate—and the parallel complex secret CIA plan to “appropriate” Scientology’s OT Levels—Douglas Caddy’s homosexuality was so under wraps that it led investigative author Jim Hougan to say in his landmark 1984 book, Secret Agenda, that “Caddy was about as conservative as they come, and there was no reason to suspect that he was anything but heterosexual.” Since then, Caddy has “come out,” and Hougan has publically corrected himself. But it also puts new light on something else Hougan said in that same book. General Paul Gaynor had been James McCord’s superior in the CIA as head of the Security Research Staff. According to Hougan:

A lifelong counterintelligence specialist, fascinated by the idea of a “Manchurian candidate,” General Gaynor was separately provided with this information [background checks] so that he might compare the names of new personnel and agents with dossiers in his legendary “fag file.” The file consisted of details concerning more than three hundred thousand Americans, mostly homosexuals, who had been arrested at one time or another for sexual offenses . . . Gaynor worked closely with the deputy chief of the Washington Police Department, Captain Roy E. Blick. According to every account, the late Captain Blick was sexually obsessed. A source for both J. Edgar Hoover’s FBI and the CIA under Allen Dulles and Richard Helms, Captain Blick maintained exhaustive files on the subject of sexual deviance, files that are said to have included the names of every prostitute, madam, pimp, homosexual, pederast, sado-masochist, and most points in between, of whatever nationality, who came to the attention of the police in the country’s capital.

When Douglas “Ragtop” Caddy came to Mullen in late 1969, was he listed in the Blick-Gaynor-McCord-Helms files? Had Caddy ever encountered New York’s “little CIA,” BOSSI, when he was in New York, but then had his record sheep-dipped by someone like John Caulfield or Tony Ulasewicz—the Tweedledee and Tweedledum who worked under the best friend the CIA and Hunt ever had, TweedleDean?

BOSSI alumnus John Caulfield became “a White House liaison with a variety of law enforcement agencies in the federal government” on Tuesday, 8 April 1969,43 mere months before Mr. Caddy came to Washington.

The very next day after Caulfield’s anointment, on Wednesday, 9 April 1969, an attorney in Miami, Florida, filed incorporation papers for a company called Ameritas, Inc., which would lie fallow for years, but would be revived by CIA stooge Bernard Barker in time to play a crucial role in Watergate during Memorial Day Weekend 1972.[44]

BOSSI alumnus Tony Ulasewicz got his invisible contract with Caulfield and the White House exactly one month after the creation of Ameritas, in the American Airlines VIP Lounge at LaGuardia Airport, on Friday, 9 May 1969.[45]

Within a few months, Douglas Caddy relocated from New York to D.C., arriving at the Mullen Company offices sometime late “in 1969.”

There was practically a blizzard of other invisible contracts in 1969. In March 1969, House Minority Leader Gerald Ford pulled strings for G. Gordon Liddy and got him appointed as Special Assistant to the Secretary of the Treasury for Enforcement. In that capacity, Liddy got a permit to carry a gun, and met John Dean. He also worked with Egil “Bud” Krogh during his Treasury stint, and, according to the FBI: “Liddy also worked directly with the CIA, had a secure telephone line directly to the CIA, and received CIA communications.”[46] Around the same time period as Caddy’s arrival at Mullen, G. Gordon Liddy was granted “special clearances” by the CIA, in December 1969.[47]

In March 1969 Lieutenant General Robert Cushman—who had roomed in 1950 with E. Howard Hunt—was nominated to be the Deputy Director of CIA. (He will be replaced in 1972, at a crucial time in Watergate, by Vernon Walters, who both Cushman and Hunt had long been connected with.)

Also in March 1969, the U.S. Navy dispatched two ships of the Sixth Fleet to Corfu, Greece, the Fremont and Grand County, where they set up sentry posts around the Scientology flagship Apollo, ultimately resulting in the ship being driven out of Greece and ending up in Morocco—where founder L. Ron Hubbard would later disappear, on or around Memorial Day Weekend 1972.

In June of 1969, Hubbard wrote: “Nelson Rockefeller finances and pushes forward the totalitarian idea of population control by psychiatry, and his foundations try to shove us around. In the news he and his family interests are under heavy attack in South America.”

On 19 June 1969, Carl M. Shoffler was officially released from over four years of military service, during which time he had served in Vietnam, and also had served in the Army Security Agency at Vint Hill Farm Station in Virginia, a top-secret installation of the NSA. Shoffler joined the Metropolitan Police Department in Washington, D.C., and later would be the lead arresting officer at the Watergate on 17 June 1972, having lurked around for more than two hours after his shift ended, waiting for the call.

In 1969, Hal Puthoff was still with the NSA, in Naval Intelligence—at least as far as anybody can tell, since Puthoff ain’t telling—and was already worming his way into Scientology toward the secret OT Levels.

In August 1969, a Navy Lieutenant with Top Secret clearances named Bob Woodward had voluntarily extended his service to take a position on the staff of the Chief of Naval Operations, Admiral Moorer. That’s the Woodward of “Woodstein” fame who later would feed the world the “Official Story” of Watergate, laying all the blame on “All the President’s Men”—except, of course, the CIA. In Woodward’s work with Moorer, he “reviewed the raw traffic that flowed into and out of the CNO’s office to and from the fleet, the CIA and the NSA, the State Department, and the NSC [National Security Council].”

On the NSC in 1969 was one David Young, serving as special administrative assistant to National Security Advisor Henry Kissinger. (Young would soon go on to work with Krogh, Hunt and Liddy in the “White House Plumbers” group, in 1971, after Daniel Ellsberg leaked the Pentagon Papers. Nobody in the White House Plumbers would ever plug a single leak.)

By 29 September 1969, Ingo Swann had become Scientology Clear #2231—and somehow had gotten clearance to register for and complete Scientology’s secret OT Level I.

On Wednesday, 1 October 1969—exactly three years to the day before the CIA would issue its secret contract to seize Hubbard’s OT Levels—Daniel Ellsberg went to the small advertising firm of a friend of his, Linda Sinay, and started the mammoth task of illegally copying the 7,000+ pages of the McNamara Report that had been entrusted to him, later known colloquially as the Pentagon Papers.

In 1969 Eugenio Martinez was put on a regular monthly retainer by the CIA.

Slowly, inexorably, the people who would become the cast of Watergate were being moved into position, almost like pieces on a giant living chessboard being moved by an unseen hand. (It probably would not be productive to carry the analogy far enough to speculate what piece Douglas Caddy might have been.)

Watergate: The Hoax — “Brilliant,” “Monumental,” “Stunning,” “Riveting”

Sunday, 14 August 2016 by


Rave reviews keep coming in for Watergate: The Hoax, by Ashton Gray—as heard about on “Coast to Coast AM” and on “House of Mystery” talk radio shows. Now on sale at AmazoniBooks, Barnes & Noble, and other fine book retailers. Here are a few of the reviews from Amazon:


 on August 5, 2016
Format: Paperback|Verified Purchase

I can’t recommend this brilliant work highly enough. Ashton Gray has proven beyond a shadow of a doubt that Watergate was a hoax perpetrated by the CIA. The entire spectacle was designed to mask what the CIA was really doing at the time, which was taking down L. Ron Hubbard and Scientology. I am not a scientologist, but I am a researcher into mind control technology and CIA crimes. Hubbard’s work was driven by his understanding that all humans have the inherent, but suppressed ability to vastly expand consciousness, and he was developing technologies to assist humanity in realizing this potential. Our government was very interested in using this technology for espionage and other nefarious purposes, but Hubbard steadfastly refused to allow that to happen, so he had to be taken down.

The real importance of this monumental work goes far beyond the tragedy of Watergate, and the many lives that were ruined by that hoax. This is the best book I’ve ever read about the CIA. It is vital that the American public understand the criminality and psychopathology of the CIA and the entire intelligence apparatus of our government and governments around the world. People need to understand Operation Mockingbird, and the takeover of most major media by the intelligence Hydra. The lies and hoaxes continue and can be viewed nightly on the evening news. This beast is winning the war against the American mind, and time is running short. Buy this book, read it, weep, then do something. Tell everyone you care about what is happening to our once great nation. Tell them about Ashton Gray’s magisterial work and shout it from the rooftops.

What an astounding book!

Watergate was a hoax. The facts in this book are clearly laid out in orderly and specific fashion. There are No generalities to skip over poor research. Daniel Ellsberg was involved.

The target was L. Ron Hubbard.

Too many facts to be denied.

The author quotes William Casey of CIA: “We’ll know our disinformation program is complete when everything the American public believes is false.”

This is a stunning work that goes into great detail to make its case. It is not so much a book to read as it is a history to study making notes, drawing schematics to connect the players and their interests and timelines to appreciate the chronology of events.
