We have to lose this naive idea that the administration in power is in any way morally superior, or even preferable, to the Clinton administration.
Although it pains me to agree with the radical secularists of the liberal left, I must finally concede that Republican power brokers are playing American Christians for fools.
I’ve been doing some reading over the last week or so on the Franklin Credit Union scandal, a piece of American history that ought to be a lot more famous than it is. In a nutshell, it appears that a guy in Omaha, Nebraska got rich by providing young boys as sex toys for powerful politicians in Washington, D.C. during the Reagan/Bush administration. Some of those boy toys, according to a front page article in the Washington Times on June 29, 1989, were taken on midnight tours of the White House.
One of the boys was later able to draw an accurate map of the White House living quarters–where the public is never allowed. Draw your own conclusion.
Another described a trip to a retreat in California at which he and another boy were forced to have sex at gunpoint with a third boy, who was killed during the proceedings. The affair was filmed.
In a bizarre twist, after Jeff Gannon of Talon News was outed earlier this year as a former male prostitute, speculation began that he was actually Johnny Gosch, who was abducted from Des Moines 23 years ago, probably by the CIA and Larry King of the Franklin Credit Union.
Shortly thereafter, “gonzo journalist” Hunter S. Thompson “committed suicide”. Interestingly, “Hunter Thompson” was the name given to the man who produced the snuff film by Paul Bonacci, one of the Franklin boys who hasn’t died yet.
Two days after the Thompson “suicide”, Russell Nelson, former photographer for Larry King, was arrested on an old warrant. Adding two and two, it seems someone in power may have considered the possibility that Guckert/Gannon was Gosch, and that he might finally talk. Loose threads were being tied up.
And now the story gets weird.
On Sunday, May 1, 2005, a man named Edward von Kloberg jumped, fell or was pushed from a hundred foot high wall of the Castel Sant’Angelo in Rome. Von Kloberg, it seems, had been passing sensitive information from the president’s daily intelligence briefing to foreign governments, some of which are not friendly to us. Since only a few sets of eyes are privy to the PDB, it didn’t take a lot of detective work to narrow down the list of suspects.
By process of matching the information leaked–some of which was fake–to the dates visitors had access to the White House, it was determined that a certain young man whose name need not be mentioned again was the likely conduit.
Von Kloberg, it must be noted, was a rather flamboyant member of the D.C. homosexual community.
Talk about “through the looking glass”. Is our government truly in the grip of depraved men of both political parties?
Let’s face it: This is not a Republican/Democrat issue. The information I have access to isn’t exactly secret. The fact that the Democrats haven’t used this it to take down Bush I or Bush II means that they’d suffer just as much from the blowback. It’s easier to kill the kids (23 so far) and kill the investigators (Nebraska State Police investigator Gary Caradori and former CIA Director William Colby) than to bring this sordid chapter of American history to light.
John DeCamp, decorated Vietnam veteran, former Nebraska state senator, and attorney who’s represented a number of the kids caught up in the Franklin child prostitution ring, is the author of The Franklin Cover-Up. DeCamp figures that only writing the book has kept him alive, because now he’s too high-profile to kill conveniently. Maybe.
Depressing, ain’t it?
