Conspiracy Nation -- Vol. 9 Num. 58

("Quid coniuratio est?")


The House Select Committee's final report on its investigation of the assassination Dr. Martin Luther King describes FBI conduct toward the slain civil rights leader as "morally reprehensible, illegal, felonious, and unconstitutional." Subsequently the word was that a "new" FBI, no longer like its former self, had arrived and we could all relax. Yet the reports we've been hearing lately on this federal busybody force belie the claim of "modernity" -- whatever that's supposed to mean.

Does "new" and "modern" equal "better" when it comes to the FBI? Not so. The Federal Bureau of Investigation's "new" face is no different than its "old" face -- except that its agents are now wearing nylon windbreakers bearing brazen and unashamed "FBI" lettering on the back. It's still the same bunch that "investigated" the JFK assassination; they have not changed their ways. Waco, Ruby Ridge, Malcolm X's daughter, Richard Jewell: these federal boys and girls, like Bill Clinton, just "do as they please."

I know that Chalmer "Chuck" Hayes is an "ex"-CIA agent and many may figure, "Who cares what happens to CIA people?" But the point is that, like at Waco, all citizens, no matter how unsavoury they might seem, are entitled to equal protection under the law. The American Civil Liberties Union understood this principle when, in the late 1970s, they defended the right of Nazi swine to march in Skokie, Illinois.

Chuck Hayes, says local Kentucky newspaper the "Commonwealth Journal," has been charged in a "murder for hire" scheme. This charge is based on the FBI's claim that one of their agents, working undercover, phoned Hayes and contracted to "scare, hurt," or murder Hayes's son in return for $100. Hayes, at last report, is being held without bond. His location is not known.

According to an anonymous fax I received today (November 3, 1996), the charge against Hayes is false and is a maneuver by the Clintons, Janet Reno, and FBI Director Louis Freeh against Hayes "in an attempt to silence him and stop his investigation for Ken Starr." What is more, adds the author of the anonymous fax, "the delay in making the existing indictments from being made public is only delaying the inevitable until after the election."

A preliminary check with one of my sources, an individual whom I have code-named "Mr. Mercedes," leads me to believe that the author of the anonymous fax is no lightweight in his access to inside information.

The anonymous fax goes on to warn: "Welcome to Watergate II, you sorry excuses for journalists. Sit back and watch the show unfold with FEMA declaring a national emergency and voiding the corrupt election of a criminal..." He adds that, "the Clintons know their co-presidency is soon to collapse and they, along with their cronies, are all heading to jail..."

(Personally I am thinking lately, "Hey, come to think of it, I'm poor. So why should I care if Clinton gets in and taxes a bunch of rich dudes?" Yet beyond economics it's a basic question of right and wrong: no good can come from having a crook as President, even if he is my crook.)

So not to get political (vote, or don't vote, for who you please), but Charles Hayes, no matter what his past associations, is a U.S. citizen with rights such as habeas corpus. No matter one's personal opinion of him, the principle comes first: FBI and the justice system has and does break the law it is supposedly meant to serve. What is happening to Chuck Hayes is an outrage, especially considering he is associated with an unpopular, fringe group.
