Conspiracy Nation -- Vol. 7 Num. 73

("Quid coniuratio est?")

[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.

One of the most forbidden subjects: the blackmail industry.

Item: In grocery stores is where you most often can buy scandal magazines. They offer to pay big bucks for incriminating pictures of celebrities and public officials. They don't always publish the material they buy! Sometimes they reportedly make a big profit by extortion, by selling the stuff to the target. Sort of an expensive cover-up.

One such rag is offering $1 million supposedly for a video showing Bill Clinton and Dan Lasater, his [Clinton's] dope-smuggling bond broker pal, both snorting cocaine from an ash tray. A former Arkansas state trooper apparently has the video. Lasater's testimony about the dope smuggling through the Arkansas airport and such could put Clinton in prison.

All of the scandal magazines suppressing the video could cost Clinton's pals $10 million.

Item: Several years ago, channel 2 TV, CBS's outlet in Chicago, was shaking down the Dominicks food store chain for big bucks advertising contracts. Dominicks hesitated. So channel 2 ran a story that in one of their many stores was found a package of mis-marked meat. At the time, Dominicks was reportedly owned or linked to reputed gangsters in Cleveland. They know how to counter muscle with their own tactics. A channel 2 employee was found early one morning near the radio-tv facilities, shot in the stomach -- an unsolved crime. Before an open war broke out between channel 2 and the food chain, Dominicks gave in and signed the ad contract.

(Early in the 20th century was published about the only book on the press shaking down reluctant advertisers: it's George Seldes' book, Tell The Truth and Run. You will look a long time for a copy.)

We brought you the exclusive details about Dominicks.

Item: The so-called independent Whitewater counsel, Kenneth Starr, has certain cronies acting as go-betweens: sucking up incriminating data, not for the federal grand jury, but to blackmail certain major businesses headquartered in Arkansas -- reputed criminal operations, such as Tyson Chickens and Wal-Mart. Those two, and 16-some other major businesses there are reportedly funded by dope loot.

Item: Top drug-enforcement officials, rotten to the core, are reportedly shaking down a gambling casino in Joliet, just south of Chicago. The riverboat facility is reportedly a major money laundry for funds from selling "China White" -- high-purity heroin. The Chicago area is the smuggling entry point for the whole United States. Implicated in this dirty business is former chief federal prosecutor and former Illinois governor Jim Thompson, who has been a director of the Chicago Sun-Times [newspaper]. A director of the casino is reportedly a crony of Chicago mayor Richie Daley, himself a crooked former state prosecutor.

Item: The major newspapers use unpublished, incriminating data to help their business! Some years ago, the Chicago Tribune blackmailed Chancery Division judge Anthony Scatillo(sp?) to get an injunction muzzling the Tribune's unionized press workers then on strike. From inside data the Tribune knew the judge took bribes and should have been sent to jail in Operation Greylord. But, Judge Scatillo was allowed to quietly resign.

Item: The highly corrupt IRS uses blackmail to be sure the press runs items favoring the tax collectors. For example, the IRS did nothing about data that channel 2 officials in Chicago over a period of 20 years embezzled some $40 million from CBS network. Using such data, the IRS sleeps with the corrupt mass media.

Just another story suppressed by the liars and whores of the press.

In Chicago, see us on cable tv, channel 21, 9 pm [cst] most Monday evenings.
