Conspiracy Nation -- Vol. 1 Num. 40

("Quid coniuratio est?")

[From an interview with the former marketing director of the Arkansas Development and Finance Authority, and former associate of Bill Clinton, Larry Nichols. This interview took place on the May 5, 1994 "America's Town Forum" radio show, hosted by Tom Donahue. The show is broadcast most weekday evenings at 7 pm (cst) on shortwave frequency 5.810 mHz. (Nichols speaks via telephone with Donahue.)]


TOM DONAHUE: We're back. Tom Donahue, "America's Town Forum," patriotism in action.

Many of you have the video -- at least some of you have the video -- Clinton's Circle of Power (or actually, it should be called Clinton's Circle of Thugs) um, and quite a few of those went out this week. So look in your mailbox for those.

If you want to order Clinton's Circle of Power, we're making it available through our organization. Twenty dollars. Just write to us -- mention the video Clinton's Circle of Power -- America First, P.O. Box 720055, Dallas, Texas, 75372.

And the soon-to-be-released, The Clinton Chronicles. We'll be telling you more about that.

Larry, where did we leave off? I think we were at the point where Clinton was the beneficiary of these loans. Um, not just loans, but I guess they were campaign contributions to keep him in the governorship, as well as to run for President.

LARRY NICHOLS: Absolutely. And then people need to understand that in Arkansas, it's a small state, and if you have the money, you have the power. And it was through the money, through the power, that Bill Clinton obtained control of the state police, of the court system, of all the attorneys -- I mean, if you crossed Bill Clinton, your attorneys license was lost. If you crossed Bill Clinton and you were a doctor, you lost your doctor's license.

DONAHUE: But if you were a friend of Bill, you could be like Jocelyn Elders and murder people {1} or like his mother and be incompetent as an anesthetist.

NICHOLS: That's right. And if you were against Bill, you also faced one of the potentials of being one of the mysterious deaths that never seem to get solved.

DONAHUE: Let's talk about, um, because that's most important here, um, let's name some of the folks that have died. We do have this son of Jerry Parks, Gary Parks, on with us tomorrow.

NICHOLS: That's right. And, uh, Gary came to me about 3 or 4 months ago, scared. They were being followed by the same people that follow me. And they needed help, he and his mother. And I told him the best thing he could do to protect his family -- and I won't get into the story, so... if it messes you up tomorrow -- but the best thing that he could do would be to come out and tell his story. Because even with me, there's been a certain amount of protection by doin' that.

It's tragic what happened to his dad. All he was guilty of, all his dad died for, was simply knowing Bill Clinton and the sleaze of his operation.

Then you go to Ambrose Evans-Pritchard. I had an informant from Hot Springs, a dentist. He was gonna tell Ambrose. I had an interview set up on a Friday. The man called me, said he was scared, it was too hot, he was leaving the state. I begged him not to go. He went anyway. He told me to re-schedule for Tuesday. On Sunday, I had to call Ambrose Evans-Pritchard, with the [London] Sunday Telegraph, and tell him that... not to bother coming back because his informant was dead.

Then you've got the L.J. Davises of the world; reporters that came in here. He was investigating the Stephens and Mena and ADFA -- that connection. He left town with a knot on his head. Somebody had broken in and hit him over the head. {2}.

DONAHUE: And examined his notes. {3}. And what they were looking through was the information on this bond scam that you were...

NICHOLS: Yes sir. That's it.

Gary Lane, from Pat Robertson [CBN]. They come in. They started investigating Mena and ADFA. {4}. They get death threats. They leave town.

DONAHUE: Gary Lane with Pat Robertson's network, the Christian Broadcast Network?

NICHOLS: Yes sir.

So you see? I mean, it's pretty rough here.

DONAHUE: Now let's, for our listeners, because, um, in case they're not able to tune in tomorrow or... give 'em a "teaser," in a nice kind of way, but I think they need to hear this and they need to act on this: let's talk about Jerry Parks. And the fact is, he was a political foe. He was investigating Clinton for many years. He built up files. But then he became a security director. His company was the security detail for the Clinton- Gore campaign. How'd that happen?

NICHOLS: Well Bill Clinton has a policy that was adopted years ago: The best place to have your enemies is working for ya. So it is not uncommon that Bill Clinton would have known the file that Mr. Parks had. And to protect that file, they gave him a lucrative contract to secure the campaign headquarters and eventually the transition headquarters.

DONAHUE: So you neutralize by way of hiring, bringing them into your fold. And then you have that control. And then you may have to also find out what they have, and perhaps even "take 'em out." [i.e. assassinate them]

NICHOLS: That's right. It is my theory, and at this point it is only a theory, that Mr. Parks took his file, which was his last official act for the Clinton campaign, he was to meet someone to receive payment, his final payment. And instead of being paid, he was assassinated. Brutally. They shot him twice then drove down the road, turned around and came back, and shot him point-blank 10 more times. {5}.

I was sitting with Gary Parks just last week, at the police department, with the investigator. The investigator said that it was a "hit," but told Gary that they probably would never solve it.

DONAHUE: We'll come right back, with our guest, and talk more about this "hit." Stay tuned.

--------------------------<< Notes >>---------------------------- {1} " like Jocelyn Elders and murder people." I'm not sure what this refers to. I am unaware that Jocelyn Elders has murdered anyone. Donahue gives no further information as to this claim.
{2} (Regarding L.J. Davis.) L.J. Davis went to Arkansas to research a subsequent New Republic cover story on Whitewater, etc. Here is what happened to him, as described in the Wall Street Journal, March 23, 1994:

He was returning to his room at Little Rock's Legacy Hotel about 6:30 after an interview on the evening of Feb. 13. The last thing he remembers is putting his key in the door, and the next thing he remembers is waking up face down on the floor, with his arm twisted under his body and a big lump on his head above his left ear. The room door was shut and locked. Nothing was missing except four "significant" pages of his notebook that included a list of his sources in Little Rock. ["Censored in Arkansas," WSJ, 3/23/94]

{3} "And examined his notes..." Not just examined his notes but ripped out four pages from his notebook. See above, note #2. What do LaRouche et al. say about this? Was conking Davis over the head and stealing his notes also part of the British plot to discredit Clinton? What say ye, Crocker? {4} (Regarding the CBN [Christian Broadcasting Network] investigation of Mena, ADFA, etc.) See "Conspiracy for the Day -- May 4 and May 5, 1994," "The Arkansas Connection."

See also "Conspiracy for the Day -- April 21, 1994," for a glimpse of the atmosphere of terror in Arkansas. Here are excerpts from that "CfD" where an anonymous reporter discusses his impressions of Arkansas:

REPORTER: Jerry, we spent a lot of time with Larry Nichols, who's actually featured in the Clinton video. Everywhere that we went, with Larry, we were followed. It was very obvious. We'd sit down at a coffee shop, we'd have our lunch with him, and there would be a [state] trooper; a trooper would come in and sit down. We would get up. We'd leave. They would leave. And they were just wherever we were. In fact, we did a few things to check things out to see if it wasn't just a coincidence, and actually we were being followed. No doubt about it.

You know, I have filmed all over the world. I've been doing this for many, many, many years. And I tell you, I have never been in a situation that I've seen the paranoia that I've seen in Arkansas.

Now very few people would actually agree to be on camera, but we talked to many, many more who would talk with us off-camera. And the thing that I discovered with all of them was they'd always kind of speak with a hushed voice, and they'd always kind of be looking around, looking around, to see if somebody was there listening to them. There is a fear in Arkansas that I just really can't describe.

{5} (Regarding the murder of Jerry Parks.) Maybe it was another "lone nut" that for no good reason just drilled him full of holes. Either that, or there was some motive. Was it robbery? Did someone drive up beside him and shoot him twice, drive off, turn around and drive back, shoot him "point-blank" 10 times -- all this just to rob him? There seems to be just one candidate for being the most likely explanation: a political assassination.
