Conspiracy Nation -- Vol. 5 Num. 87

("Quid coniuratio est?")

[CN Editor -- I cannot vouch for the accuracy of all of the following. It may or may not be true, I just don't know.]

[The following is a transcript of a recorded phone message put out by a group in Chicago called "Citizens' Committee to Clean Up the Courts [CCCC]." (312) 731-1100 and (312) 731-1505.]

Hi! Sherman Skolnick, Citizens' Committee to Clean Up the Courts, 9800 South Oglesby.

He says he himself shouldn't be punished. He says six federal judges in Chicago took bribes. He is William R. Hogan, Jr. He was the lead federal prosecutor against the Chicago narco-terrorist gang called the El Rukns.

Background: Previously known as the Blackstone Rangers, starting in the 1960s and for many years this gang was never bothered by state and federal authorities. The gang was funded by foundations acting as conduits for CIA -- including the Charles Merrill Trust at Cambridge, set up by the founder of the Merrill-Lynch brokerage fortune, and the Kettering Foundation of Denver.

The gang subdued various south side neighborhoods by shootings, fire bombings, and raw terror. During the Vietnam War, those tactics were studied as models to design a computer program, "How To Subdue Villages In Southeast Asia". The details were funneled into the army math computer in Madison, Wisconsin. (That was a giant computer. How foreign espionage agents in the United States bombed the computer in 1970 is a complicated story.)

Also, for a long time, elements of the traditional mafia in Chicago lavished money on the street gang to aid the distribution here of dope from Turkey, France, and Southeast Asia.

Then, in the 1980s, a very sophisticated federal prosecutor, William R. Hogan, Jr., started to prosecute about 70 of these narco-terrorists. Now Hogan's extended family were tight with the Pope and the Archbishop of Chicago. Previously, Hogan had been reportedly trained by espionage agencies who now wanted to terminate the gang! To get the defendants as witnesses, turned against fellow gang members, Hogan reportedly allowed dope to be smuggled in to some of the criminals and allowed them to use federal office facilities to have sex with girlfriends.

Three federal judges issued reports on this, condemning Hogan. A federal grand jury investigating Hogan's supposed misconduct was, however, obstructed. A mysterious 2-foot-high water flood wrecked the grand jury headquarters. Then, the FBI announced that mafia "moles" had infiltrated the federal grand jury! Poisoning the whole system!

Since 1993, the accusations against Hogan were blocked and stalled. Meanwhile, counter-attacking, Hogan accused six federal judges here of taking bribes in other cases! Three judges in the U.S. District Court here, and three judges in the federal appeals court in Chicago, Seventh Circuit.

Hogan, and a ring of other federal prosecutors, also was known to have reportedly taken bribes to drag their feet in other cases un-related to the El Rukns, including a criminal case involving the nephew of the Vatican Bank chief, and Household International and Household Bank, the CIA-linked reputed dope- money laundry.

Meanwhile, Hogan was on administrative leave! Getting paid while sailing his boat near the Virgin Islands and visiting in Australia!

Hogan, and other federal prosecutors here, should themselves be prosecuted for matters much more serious than the sex and dope allegations regarding the El Rukns in jail.

So, the fundamental question is, who should be punished first: Hogan and his gang? Or, the six bribe-taking judges?

(If you're listening from a place far away from Chicago, don't kid yourself. It happens where you are too.)
