Rudy "Butch" Stanko: The Score (1986). EXTRACTS ONLY.
Upon graduating from the University of Wyoming in 1970, I nmediately went into the meat industry with my father, Rudy Stanko, Sr. or fourteen years I worked 80 to 100 hours per week, doing everything om lugging beef, soliciting accounts, and buying cattle, to traveling to >reign countries to establish markets for the by-products of American ;ef. I borrowed as much as $5,000,000 for working capital that would rn over thirty times a year, and established the largest boneless beef ocessing business in America. By 1983,1 was a wealthy, successful, young businessman. At one time, I was approached to take the beef companies public, and I was told that 40% of the stock of the companies could be sold in excess of $40,000,000 on the American Stock Exchange.
Therein lay the problem. I had become, perhaps, too successful. In my rise to the top, I had naively failed to perceive that the real world was unrolled by an elite few. My first inkling of a flaw in the system occurred in 1978. At the time I was growing prosperous with three plants in Glasgow, Montana; Gering, Nebraska; and Gordon, Nebraska; and, along with huge profits and a growing family, I was young and felt that the world was my oyster. In that year, however, I had my first major legal run in with the U.S. government and its judicial system. I was accused by the Government's attorney general (prosecutor), through the grand jury process, of twenty-five violations of federal meat regulations. The accusations were blown up by the press into a possible fifty year jail sentence if convicted.
The Grand Jury is led by the prosecutor's desires and whims. The prosecutor is the only one allowed to present the case to the Grand Jury, while the defendant's attorney is not allowed to confront, let alone speak to, the grand jury. To the public, this process appears legitimate; but the Grand Jury is nothing more than a rubber stamp for the government. I was outraged at the system and accusations, but was equally disgusted with the press coverage. I had not been proven guilty of anything, but already I had become a notorious figure as portrayed by the press. Later, all of the charges against me in this incident were dropped if I would plea to a misdemeanor, and I would then receive a small fine of a $1000 dollars and *** months probation. While I will develop the particulars of this case in a laterr chapter, the reader might find it amusing to note that the crux of the o*** centered on whether a 6000 pound shipment of "beefalo" sent to a jerky manufacturer should be labelled "beef or "buffalo." But, for the first time my life, I was really confused about how the system worked and to whose advantage. Why should the U.S. Justice Department, of the country I adore fanatically, pursue an industrious American businessman who paid millions of dollars in taxes; employed hundreds of people; did nothing but make the system better; and, on top of it all, improved the cattle market for the cattle producer and lowered the price of meat to the consumer through an increase in competition? More interestingly, why should the government and the press be so anxious and willing to leap before they looked? Was there more to it than met the eye?
During the next five years, however, the companies continued to grow and to prosper, and, in fact, succeeded far beyond what I had expected, especially for a young man in his mid-thirties. In 1981, I leased/purchased a modern slaughtering and processing plant in Denver, Colorado, from Monfort Packing Company. Eighty-five percent of the plant was newly built, with great potential right in the heart of the populace and distributing center of the Midwest. The best demand and the highest dollar for fresh boneless beef is almost always received inland and in the metropolitan areas of Denver and Kansas City. These inland cities are not as severely affected by the large influx of boneless beef imports from South and Central America, or Australia and New Zealand. From Denver, I knew I could give instant service (a marketing advantage lacking in the rural plants of Nebraska), and disperse product to all the large commercial outlets located in Denver, who then distributed to the surrounding areas: Safeway, King Soopers, Wendy's, and many other distributors and end users. In addition, my company would become the largest manufacturer of ground beef for the federal school lunch program and largest supplier of ground beef for the U.S. military. (This was because Denver had huge storage and freezing facilities.) The combination of my ambition and the background of three generations in the meat packing business gave me the expertise to produce a premium quality product at a lower cost than my competitors.
In 1983 things were going, well and each plant had adequate management and continued to grow in volume and profits. Then, on September 18,1983, when I was on a Canadian fishing trip, the bomb fell.
That Sunday afternoon, NBC's First Camera, a new program patterned after CBS's Sixty Minutes, launched its premiere show, supposedly to expose the inadequacies in the inspection service of the United States Department of Agriculture (USDA). Actually, it turned out to be an attack on Cattle King Beef Company. They accused Cattle King of unsanitary processing conditions, rat infestation, unfair labor practices and other illegal [6-7] operations. All of this information had been gathered and collated by an independent consumer safety agency, the Better Government Association, based in Chicago. However, the BGA was working for and financed by NBC (National Broadcasting Corporation).
When I returned from Canada, I was amazed at what had already taken place. Within three days, the secretary of the USDA, John Block, had suspended Cattle King and Nebraska Beef from receiving any future government contracts; and they would embargo and condemn all of the future meat production (21,000,000 pounds) purchased by the government. Jier, my name, Cattle King's, and Nebraska Beefs were plastered across the front page of every major newspaper in the country, again without any proof of the allegations. Not one allegation aired on the original show was ever proved. But this lack of substantiation never slowed the pursuit. The NBC financially-backed consumer advocate group, the BGA, and the government agencies, through the cooperation of the national wire service offices of AP and UPI (Associated Press and United Press International), continued to spread "headline rumors". During the next six months, my life, and my family's lives, not to speak of the reputation of the meat companies, were turned upside down.
From the beginning of this witch hunt, I decided to fight this injustice with all of my resources. I enjoy a challenge, and I am a fighter, and I do not take anything lying down. But, unlike earlier in life when I could face an opponent one on one, and on a fair field of battle, this time I gradually grew to realize that those who sought my undoing had all the cards and the deck was stacked against me. During the next year, various accusations continued to be made. One was that we had allowed staples to enter the packaged meat. It was alleged that people who had purchased Cattle King meat from grocery stores had contracted salmonella, a sickness caused by uncooked pork. Another was that we distracted federal inspectors so we could process rigor mortis cattle that had died in the yard. Again, none of these media charges were ever proved. But, by the end of December, 1983, the damage had already been done.
On December 14, a so-called congressional hearing was organized to determine if there was any truth to the accusations. I became confused because it was chaired by only one congressman. There was no committee, not even a congressman or congresswoman from the agricultural committee that was stationed in Washington, DC, from our district. The congressman was Tom Harkin, from faraway Iowa, who would in the future receive excellent press coverage and become a U.S. Senator. I finally realized how awesome the opposition was. The entire procedure was rigged and was actually instigated by the influence of the media, which was led by NBCs-financed BGA, and then the'administrative government in Washington, DC could and would take over. The United States administrative government the prosecution was allowed twelve hours of testimony, almost entirely provided by disgruntled ex-employees of Cattle King who had been released for being unreliable and who had been provided expense money by the BGA. Cattle King was allowed only four witnesses in one hour, at 7:00 p.m., which was at the end of the day after all the newspaper reporters had left to meet their deadline in the evening news. The reporters, and consequently the readers, had a horrified and distorted view of the true picture. The headlines read: POISONED BY CATTLE KING BEEF. During the proceedings, I realized what writer Al Knight said in his editorial a few days later;"... that BGA director Terrence Brunner was orchestrating the entire play." Aside from Terrence Brunner actually being on the panel of the "so-called" Congressional hearing committee, he directed the NBC cameras which were there for the express purpose of following up their initial September 18 expose' in January. When I went home that night and thought about everything that had happened and how, I knew that I was in for the fight of my life.
False accusations from media systems assaulted my companies with no mercy. The press pictured the Cattle King Beef Company, the Nebraska Beef Packers, and their owner, Rudy "Butch" Stanko, as outlaws, comparable to J.R. Ewing on the infamous TV show Dallas. The constant headlines and the results of the media coverage at the "so-called" congressional hearing would inflame the public and substantiate action by the Justice Department. The sole purpose of the congressional hearing was not to discover the true story but to make news to instigate prosecution. The news would inflame the public, that would justify immediate bureaucratic action. Four months later, actual charges were finally stipulated by the U.S. Department of Agriculture (USDA), working through the Department of Justice, and, again, rubber stamped by the Grand Jury. The outcome was a trial and my conviction. For many people, this would be the end of the story; but in my case it is only the beginning. During the past two years, I have spent every waking moment realizing the power behind the "force" that is hidden from almost every mind that strives to progress and pursue the ultimate life style in this world of opportunity. In this land of freedom, [8-9] why should the government, in this case, the U.S. Department of Agriculture : (USDA), so quickly and totally cut off and punish a business and its owner who was its new main supplier and provided the bulk of the competition that previously was non existent? Why would a private consumer group, the EGA, seek out and destroy someone with whom it had no prior contact? Why would a duly elected official, Harkin, run a public witch hunt? Why would the press, which is the supposedly the nation's and the world's bulwark and guardian against the enemies of truth, print so much falsehood? Could , there be certain individuals who would profit greatly from my ruin? The 1 evr - from September 18,1983 until now didn't just happen-they were placed.
i One group had become envious of my success, and that group alone had reasons to eliminate a competitor who had become a major threat to its I monopolistic control of America's food supply. As many people who followed the Cattle King and Nebraska Beef stories said: "He must have !stepped on the wrong toes."
j I had always known of the dominance of a group of people in our industry, but I had never been exposed to the historical facts, or the possibility of a controlled market, and the reason for this lack of competition. I did not realize how their close knit organization affects the world until I had the time to study the history and the creation of credit. Ihen, with my past pragmatic business experience, I was able to put pieces of lie puzzle together. It can be recognized that I am an authority on the beef Business, had a natural instinct for discovering the various economic narketing channels for success, and had the ability to identify my various competitors. By using that same common sense business experience I icquired in dealing with my customers and competitors, I can now conclude hat the competition that remains is studiously concealed and masked. The esson to be learned is frightening; and I hope that this book will open the jyes of the freedom loving citizens of America and the world so they, too, can see what is happening.
One of the most startling facts of my research in writing this book is that the Federal Reserve Bank of the United States is not a government entity. It is a private corporation as are its central banking counterparts in Europe, such as the Bank of England and the Bank of France, and its central banking counterpart in Russia, the Gosbank. The Federal Reserve Corporation, like its counterparts, is owned and controlled by the same foreign bankers who have historically controlled the world's money and trading systems. Why was I not taught any of this in my college business and economics courses? Why are these facts hidden?
Have our political leaders become puppets servicing the accumulation of vast wealth by the international bankers? Does the same big money that controls our media have the power to make or break any politician, businessman, or organization by destroying its credibility?
We are fast becoming an "enslaved" society. The average American family--as well as those around the world-has both parents working all year long for an average of two weeks paid vacation. Yet that family may not be able to save enough for a week's trip out of town. We have become nations that simply survive on the bare necessities of life. Why does this include the almighty nations of America, with all its power, modern technology, and natural resources that are supposedly increasing our standard of living? Through its control of our money, the media, and the merchandise, this group of people has attained power and influence in every sector of our economy and at every level of our society. It is dedicated to the financial control of the naive and brainwashed citizens of the world, as a first step toward enslaving them. Without financial freedom, there is no freedom. Whoever controls the issuance of money or credit controls you.
Until I spent the time researching for this book, I was as suspicious, but ignorant, as most freedom loving citizens of the world about this "worldwide conspiracy". Taking over my meat companies was only a small part of the larger conspiracy. However, my companies did pose a threat to the meat cartel's monopolistic control over the United States' food supply. The most important question to be asked about the takeover of my meat companies must be, "Who would benefit from the elimination and takeover of Rudy "Butch" Stanko's Nebraska Beef and Cattle King beef companies"?
The answer is that a group has become professional manipulators. The members believe they are the intellectual and wealthy rulers of man. They consider you to be the slaves of this organization. This, my friends, is The Score.
You may ask: "Who is this group, and do they resemble the Mafia?" What I will say now is that the mafia is a small faction, which is limited in their influence to primarily the United States and Sicily, whereas the
Chapter 1 Early Years: Pre-1970
"In 1970,1 left the fun behind and began a steady business career, utilizing all of the knowledge and experiences of my youth, and, unexpectedly learning about the 'supermen in the meat cartel." Rudy "Butch" Stanko
Rudy "Butch" Stanko is a rowdy. All my life I have been a beer drinking hell raiser, and, at thirty-seven, I was still drinking pitchers of beer and kicking hippies' asses in the honky-tonk saloons. I was hardly what a Christian preacher would call a saint; rather he would probably say that I was on the road to hell or, at best, that I was obnoxious. However, I would rather drink and tell dirty jokes with the boys at the bar than listen to his boring Sunday morning sermons.
I rather liked my reputation-a rough, tough, Polish cowboy from Wyoming spent a
lot of money on parties, cold beer, big cars, and, of course, fast airplanes.
It's the good life if you don't have to look the preacher in the eye on Sunday
I no doubt inherited many of my personality traits from my tough dad and the
rough-tough atmosphere of the drinking, happy-go-lucky meat packing crews that I
have been around since I was able to walk. Dad and I were both raised in the
environment of the wide-open ranges of Wyoming, so naturally we were accustomed
to the free spirited way of life. This free education outside the classroom
taught me more about how to take care of myself, and how to deal with
high-pressure situations, than any school system I had graduated from. But more
than raising hell and having a reputation as the toughest guy around, I love my
wife and family more than anything in the world. So, in 1980,1 retired with my
beautiful wife and three children to Jackson Hole, Wyoming, the paradise valley
of the United States.
Having made enough money to retire for life, I had decided to do what my Dad,
Rudy Stanko Sr., who had worked his tail off since he was twelve years old and at sixty-two was still putting in sixty-hour to seventy-hour
weeks, had never been able to do nor wanted to for that matter-take it easy and
enjoy the good life. Many of my friends and business associates thought I was
crazy for quitting when I 'was so successful. I was one of the top meat
producers in America, and still young. However, two things had occurred which
made my move attractive, if not necessary. First, I had been the object of a
probe by the government for various alleged violations of the meat processing
regulations. This was especially aggravating to me because I had been one of the
largest taxpaying citizens during Jimmy Carter's administration (I was in the
80% tax bracket), and also because I had worked so hard to become a success. I
remember telling Joe Richter, a drinking companion who was always planning how
to make a fast buck, that: "A person could make more money legally than
illegally." I was legally making millions, and it would be pure stupidity for a
man in my position to cheat anyone. We had hundreds of employees and our
reputation was the main reason for our success. Now, the government was calling
me a criminal.
Second, I wanted to achieve my personal dream of living in the mountains,
hunting, fishing, hiking, skiing and doing all of the outdoor activities with my
wife and kids.
To better understand why I wanted to get out of the rat race, I need to tell the
reader a little of my history. When my grandfather, Mike Stanko, who was born in
1886 in Stebna, Poland, came to this country in 1912, unable to speak a word of
English, he didn't have to contend with the high-pressure business world and
government controls that now exist in this country and are counterproductive for
our families' operations. The wide open ranges of Wyoming contained no brick
walls of government bureaucracies to limit his growth, as they did fifty years
later. So when Mike Stanko started his meat business at the foot of the Big Horn
Mountains close to Sheridan, Wyoming, his hard work and knowledge of meat
processing made him a successful business man within a few years. His primary
customers were Polish and Italian coal miners and the few wealthy English
landowners and merchants in Sheridan, Wyoming. His prosperity grew until tragedy
struck, when Dad was only fifteen years old. One Saturday, when my grandfather
was butchering beef on the range for the following Monday's market, his wife,
Anna, had an appendicitis attack and died before Mike returned from the field.
Had he been there, he could have rushed her by horsedrawn wagon to Sheridan,
only fourteen miles away. But in those
which I naturally would have done anyway. The law had chased me for twenty miles
across the hills and gullies of the desert and did not throw the book at me.
They had as much fun as I did. A game warden was listening on the two-way radio
and thought it was hysterical. He heard the cop saying that the antelope should
take some lessons from Rudy and his hotrod Chevrolet. Nowadays, our uptight
system, which is highly influenced by the media, ' -^uld have charged me with
everything under the sun. During my father's u~y, the cops would have joined in
by drinking beer at the party or by taking my grandfathers eighty miles an hour
to the boxing match. It has taken just over fifty years for a "hidden force"
that dictates the economy, media, and law, to control every aspect of our lives
and to take away the free and fighting spirit that made the new nation of
America great. These "hidden forces" are especially powerful within the world's
food and meat markets. Plato, Mendelssohn, Nietzsche, all famous philosophers of
their civilizations, laid the doctrines that the people would be led by the
military class under the rM leadership of supermen? Who are the "hidden
forces" or the supermen? I didn't find out until I was thirty-seven years old,
and a threat to their power structure.
The reader must not think however, that I was just a playboy during my school
days. I was also an opportunist, and I was always thinking about the meat
packing business and how my Dad could make the extra buck in his business. Also,
for my efforts, I always had a hundred dollar bill in my pocket for working
extra hours at the meat packing plant, as well as making a few deals on the
During my teens, I worked for my father in every capacity. I lugged beef in the
plant and learned the various cuts of meat, along with all the in-plant
operations of making hot dogs and curing hams and bacons. I also learned how to
identify a good piece of meat, and how to judge and to purchase livestock. While
a lot of kids were swimming, being lifeguards, or getting suntans in the summer
at Alcova Lake, I was out dealing with the plant's customers and making business
decisions on the price of meat with buyers twenty to forty years older than
myself; so very early in my life I was learning every phase of the meat packing
business. To reinforce these skills, I became active in Deca, the distributive
education program at the high school, winning the State Salesman and the Student
of the Year Awards in my senior year, and a free train trip to Chicago. By the
time I went to college, I had already a better education in making a living in
the real world than any college graduate.
I was probably the wildest rounder the University of Wyoming has ever seen. If
you think Animal House was a crazy movie with lunatics who couldn't possibly
exist in real life, you're mistaken. Along with Gunnars Hvaskos, Rob "the Roach"
Snedden, Mouse Miller, whiskey-drinking Bear Butt McCarrol and some of my other
buddies, we were the first to bring a horse up to the third floor of the dorm.
It mysteriously died and had to be butchered by the dorm proctors with a hand
saw when rigor mortis set in the next day. With my wrestling and boxing
background, I was able to kick the. hell out of any football player who thought
he was the toughest guy on campus. I had the right connections to locate any
exam for the other students, who were my partymates for a slight fee~a case of
beer. I especially enjoyed walking into a bar filled with half-drunk toughs and
teasing them. If they were good-natured and took the kidding in the right way,
we bought each other drinks; but sometimes it ended in more than an ordinary
debate. Like my dad, I didn't lose any fights, and this included those where I
took on as many as three and four at one time. One night while I was home for
Christmas vacation, three black guys decided to jump me at Black's Chili joint.
As I was running outside, the timing was just right. I turned around and the
bastards were all in line, so with the straight right that my Dad taught me, in
three punches I left all three lying on the ground.
I always had plenty of expense money in college to finance my escapades. Working
for Dad selling meat in the summer vacation months, I was able to make what a
family man would. I was also a distributor for butcher knives, trout flies,
buffalo skulls, and anything that would make a buck. Besides having a fullride
wrestling scholarship, I threw an annual Polish May Feast that made a consistent
$3000 a year. At this feast on Mother's Day, I would order forty kegs of beer
and a ton of Polish sausage, and I would charge five dollars for a couple or
three dollars for a stag. This was the biggest party Wyoming had ever seen, and
it showed what an enterprising young American could do if he had ambition. On
top of that, I was a consistent winner in dorm poker games. But in 1970, as I
closed my senior year and received my degree in accounting, I left the fun
behind and began a steady business career, utilizing all of the knowledge and
experiences of my youth.
are no different than the operating procedures of the local meat market. The
USDA has assumed this police authority and delegated this power to classroom
scholars. Through the use of 38,000 regulations, the USDA has curtailed,
stymied, and now eliminated the production of the small, rural meat packer. This
assumed authority and encroachment by the USDA has created a high priced meat
product for the consumer and benefited the monopolistic
ironment of the "supermen" in the meat cartel. In other words, our USDA, through
the federal meat veterinarians, unconsciously has been trained to stymie and
control the meat business for an "elite few," or a meat cartel. If this is not
true, then where is the competition that existed in the early 1950's? The big
four-Swift, Armour, Cudahy, and Wilson-have closed most of their plants or
scaled down their operations and merged with the international conglomerates.
The owners of the small, independent slaughtering and processing plants that
existed in all rural areas, like the Sheridan Meat Company (my uncle's plant on
my mother's side of the family) and the Rocky Mountain Packing Company, have
given up the ship. The pressure from the USDA in Washington, DC, via the federal
vets is not worth the battle. My mother's family's sixty-year-old Sheridan Meat
Company closed its doors in 1985. It was the last wholesale meat company in the
state of Wyoming. Thirty years ago ten such companies existed in this state. The
great livestock state of Montana is also practically void of these commercial
meat operations. In 1970, Nebraska turned its responsibility of meat inspection
of over a hundred commercial meat companies to the USDA. Dr. Roger Krull, a past
circuit supervisor for the USDA in the state of Nebraska during this transition
period, stated: "My bosses told me to sig-um."^
Krull's bosses were Dr. Breeden and Dr. Shannon, USDA federal vets stationed in
Lincoln, Nebraska; and sig-um is the term used in telling a hunting dog to fetch
the wild game. After a year, Krull had a guilty conscience in closing or making
the requirements so rigid for almost all of the independent meat companies in
the state of Nebraska-which subsequently closed down-that he quit his military
job. He later stated: "I was told to close the doors on hard working Americans,
and these were the type of Americans that built this country and made it
These four states: Colorado, Montana, Nebraska, and Wyoming are typical examples
of what has happened or is happening in all fifty of the United States of
The Big Four and the rural independent meat companies have been replaced by
large international merchants or metropolitan independent meat companies.
Members of certain cartels have historically dwelt in urban areas, which are
centers of trade. .However, in the early 1900's, the founder of Swift and
Company, Gustavus F. Swift, stated that his past company success centered around
building his slaughtering plants near the source of supply. The expense of
transportation would verify his conclusion. Why not slaughter and process the
animals at the source? The answer is simple. The meat cartel can more readily
centralize its monopolistic structure by communicating and organizing its
members in the urban areas where they live. Their association governs the USDA
in Washington, DC, because their combined wealth and membership has the
professional political influence over key appointments within the federal
government's administration. This creates a government entirely separate and
under little influence from our elected politicians. Once the rural competition
was eliminated, the city cartels expanded into the competitive-free rural areas.
At present they dominate the entire meat market of the whole country.
Now that the rural competition has been practically eliminated, the USDA has
used my original suggestion. In the early 1980's, the USDA initiated and
implemented a new program called TQC (Total Quality Control), which now will
benefit only the remaining operators, the meat cartel. Under this program, the
USDA veterinarians and their inspectors will no longer be responsible for most
of the 38,000 regulations concerning production in the meat-packing industry.
Decisions as to the edibility of meat after the USDA veterinarian has placed his
stamp of approval on the slaughtered animal will he left up to the quality
control personnel under management's jurisdiction.
The professional meat buyers and the consumers are the ultimate meat inspectors.
The customers of the meat companies will not purchase a dirty or an unwholesome
meat product. If they have a dirty shop, these independent meat companies will
be without customers. Word of mouth is the best or the worst advertising,
depending on how clean you keep the meat packing operation. Rocky Mountain
Packing Company was a clean business, as testified by its customer rapport.
Yet Rocky Mountain Packing Company, a typical, expanding meat company from the
1950's through the middle 1970's in the rural United States, was forced to close
its doors for the benefit of the "meat cartel." Marvin Dinner, a cattle trader
from the Denver area familiar with the
meat cartel, told me many years later: "They were worried and concerned about
your father's aggressiveness in Wyoming.1"* Marvin Dinner was a member of the
synagogue and the men's club where many of the personalities of the meat cartel
in the metropolitan area of Denver went to compare notes.

Gordon is a small town of 2500 people in the middle of the Sandhills of Western
Nebraska. Prior to our leasing the meat packing plant in 1970, it had been the
ruin of three other meat packers in the previous five years. Boyer Provision,
the last of the owners, had lost $250,000 in a short time; and Vern Boyer, the
president of Boyer Provision, was anxious to get out of the plant. The plant had
been labeled a loser, and in order to entice us, he hadto give it to us for
almost nothing. The Chief, my dad, was the only party interested in the idle
plant, or the "dead horse"; but in terms of the volume of money needed to
operate a meat packing plant, our family was considered broke. Being a meat
packing man, Boyer knew we would need all of our accumulated funds for working
capital. He agreed to lease us the plant for twenty years for a mere $ 1.50 per
head slaughtered, which even included the utilities.
But the Chief and I were so hard pressed for working capital that we couldn't
even come up with the $50,000 to open the plant. The bank in Gordon demanded
this sum before they would supply an additional $250,000 working capital, which
was the absolute minimum required to finance the inventory and accounts
receivable of a small meat packing company. My parents had only $20,000 in the
bank after the financial failure of the Rocky Mountain Packing Company, so we
had to raise the $30,000 from somewhere.
This proved to be difficult. All of the Chiefs friends and loyal supporters had
invested in Wyoming Beef Packers, the company that was now operating in the
Rocky Mountain Packing building and was run by the state of Wyoming and its
development corporation. The company demoted the Chief at its inception and,
consequently, was having more financial

competitors in several cities: Denver:
1. Averch Packing
2. Denver Boneless
3. Lyco Boneless
Omaha: 1. Cornhusker Packing-largest cow carcass shipper in the Midwest,
located at Omaha, and a main supplier to Prime Packing when they were boning
cows. Comhusker had made millions selling meat to the U.S. military government
in World War II.
2. Northern States-largest cow and bull slaughterer and boner at one location.
It is the number one supplier of government ground beef and is owned by the
international firm of Con-Agra (Con-Agra also owns Armour).
Nebraska : 1. Gibbon Packing-it has become one of the largest cow
slaughterers and exclusively supplies Peck Packing in Milwaukee or,
occasionally, the Jewish boners in Denver.
2. McCook Packing-an old plant that went out of business when Gibbon began and
was owned by a New York Jewish family, the Romanoffs, who are large meat
distributors in New York and would receive large shipments of meat only from
Jewish sources after the fading of McCook Packing.
Kansas City : Carl Wiseman Boneless Beef-compatible to Denver Boneless
and Lyco combined. The company sold the majority of the boneless beef boned in
the lucrative fresh boneless beef markets of Kansas and Missouri.
New Mexico : Karler Packing-the only large cow slaughterer in New
Mexico, which began to supply the Denver area when a supply was needed,
especially after Averch Packing converted to a sheep kill and Cattle King began

convictions orjhe Gillette Group is a front for a larger financial structure.

Kandor being involved in a Jewish conspiracy. The company business and
management transferred over to another newly-acquired steak cutting operation.
The steak cutting operation is the largest steak cutting business in the U.S. It
was then sold again to who knows who, but it is heavily Jewish owned and
operated. Kandor has always concentrated on the exporting and importing of meat
throughout the world. Some Central American meat is banned from entering America
and is imported into Europe to be processed as Hungarian salami, and then
re-exported throughout the world, including the United States.

The list is larger and could include the West Coast, which is also heavily
influenced by the Kehillah. All of the above firms are Jewish and their owners
speak Yiddish. Working with this list alone indicates that the Jewish Kehillah
handles, at some time in the distributing network, at least 85% of the cows and
bulls processed from Nebraska to the eastern Great Lakes. They control the meat
market because of their influence on the Kehillah-controlled "sheet," or the
National Provisioner, that decides the meat market. This is a strong .statement,
but I challenge the Kehillah to dispute my facts. When they had realized that,
even with their best competitive business efforts, they couldn't put me out of
business or control my growth, they decided to get me in another way. How else
can Grant's repeated returns, twice at his own request, be explained, especially
in the light of his own disliking of small Western towns and his supposed
disgust with our illegal operations, about which he testified as early as 1977?
Later in the book, there will be proof that Grant will be another link in 1983.
Kandor's and Grant's efforts worked, for by 1980,1 had to close my Glasgow plant
and lay off half of my Gering employees because I was no longer able to bid on
the lucrative government contracts, and because of the publicity, my record was
Just a few closing thoughts. Wilfred Grant, along with his professed Nazism, is
known to have forged a signature on an employee's check in order to steal from a
White Hall employee. This man was Harold Coates (an ex-Nebraska Beef killfloor
foreman), who was one of Grant's hand-picked foremen, and who informed the
government about Grant's true character.
The Justice Department was not interested; they were instructed to pursue a
bigger fish, Nebraska Beef. Grant is known to have stolen a box of pork loins
from Nebraska Beef which he sold to the owner of the Union Bar in Gering,
Nebraska. His drinking compatriots called him "the silver fox." He is known to
have conspired to transport illegal aliens across state and national borders for
his profit. Yet this is the type of person used by the legal system in the
United States to justify justice.
In contrast, I voluntarily assisted in the capture of an outlaw meat truck
driver, who had stolen a truck load of beef from a competitor, Iowa Beef
Packers, and who tried to sell me 40,000 pounds of pirated meat for $25,000,
with a value of $125,000, or a profit of $100,000. I not only turned him in
after he contacted me but strapped myself with a recorder to get the evidence
necessary for the prosecution.
Also, many of the inspectors and graders in my plants testified to the quality
of my product and the cleanliness of my plants. Dr. James Hitch, the doctor of
veterinary medicine at Glasgow, said he never knew of any attempt by the Stankos
to defraud the government and stated that we ran our plant as well or better
than any plant he had ever known. Ray Rezac, a USDA employee at the Gering
plant, said much the same. Who is the reader going to believe? Do you smell
something rotten in the meat industry?
Still being naive about the private ownership of the Federal Reserve and the
Protocols of Zionism, I blamed the legal push against me on the ignorant
bureaucracies of the government and their uncontrollable spending associated
with heavy taxation. At the time I thought: "To hell with it. It isn't worth the
hassle." So I retired. Later Tom Bamrick made the comment: "Things just don't
happen, they are planned." >

Before I made a deal with Monfort, I felt I had to eliminate some of the past
deficiencies of the Denver plant. Since the plant had no rendering facility, a
long-term contract had to be acquired from both the hide processing and the
rendering people, who were all intertwined in ownership with the Jewish meat
cartel. The hide and rendering business as in Denver were exclusively Jewish.
Herman the Jewish German was still alive, and his influence and w~-king capital
was being passed on to his future inheritors.
Also, Denver had a historic reputation as a strong union town. It was my
perception from previous experiences that if we became a dominant supplier in
the city, the union workers at the large Safeway and King Soopers stores would
not accept product from a nonunion plant. Therefore a union labor contract had
to be negotiated, but it had to be on the same wage scale as the Nebraska
plants. I wanted the plants to be in harmony; a high scale union contract might
ruffle the feathers of the hard-working employees of Nebraska Beef in Gering and
Gordon. When Monfort operated the plant, it had a small, company-independent
union which, Monfort had said: "was company oriented." The Denver plant had been
closed down for six months, and its ex-employees' and the union leaders'
unemployment benefits had expired. Because of this situation, the independent
union's founders were receptive to a contract that was three and four dollars
lower than those of the other meat cutter unions. It was my plan just to get the
plant started under an equitable union contract, and if at a later date a labor
dispute arose, I would be in the ideal bargaining position. I would not own the
plant, with millions tied up in a bag of cement in an idle plant due to a
strike; I was only leasing. Once I was established, I could always fall back on
the Nebraska plants to supply boneless beef to my future Denver customers.
With a rendering plant in Gordon, the Gering plant was able to use this as a
hedge in dealing with the city cartel of Denver and to receive an adequate
return for its rendering by-products. Consequently, the Gering plant was now
hauling its by-products to Denver. I was able to negotiate the same deal as
Gering, except that the new Cattle King plant, being in the city of Denver,
would have no freight on its by-products.
The hide processing was not a big issue, but when dealing with a Jewish hide
cartel and a controlled business, it meant that all areas must be covered before
an operation could begin. Because of the concentrated population, the large city
of Denver had more than its share of environmental controls. For example, the
disposal of the enormous amount of salt brine used in curing hides was a problem
unless the company had started under the jurisdiction of
the grandfather clause (a business established before the environmental
permits). A long-term deal was struck with Processors, Inc., for a little over
two dollars per hide to brine cure and process the hides for us. This was on the
high side, but Processors.'Inc., and Herman the German's old outfit, now called
Chilewich, were the only two hide-salting facilities in the city.
Another area of concern was that of financing. This was always a problem in
rural Nebraska with its small banks because the most any bank would loan would
be ten percent of its equity. In my case, I banked with the largest bank in the
area, Scottsbluff National Bank, and I could never get credit of over one
million dollars, even though my net worth was several millions. I was later to
realize that this was the plan of the most powerful cartel of all, the banking
Kehillah, so as to limit the growth of the rural areas. The demand for credit,
or a medium of exchange, grows when industry expands; and the creation of money
or credit is controlled by the private owners of the Federal Reserve Bank of New
York. The need for money in rural areas can be compared to the situation in the
Depression of the 1930's, when the Federal Reserve Bank of New York decreased
the supply of money and made money hard to obtain. This depressed the purchasing
power and consequently, the prices throughout the country, and then the money
manipulators bought the depressed but valuable assets. I was now in the big city
of Denver, and, with my track record, acquiring money should pose no problem. My
first stop was the First National Bank of Denver, Sonny Mapelli's bank. I was
turned down. My next stop was the American Ag Credit Corporation, which worked
through the Colorado National Bank. Colorado National Bank was Averch's and
Denver Boneless's bank, but I was still able to secure a participating loan of
up to four million dollars to run the new meat packing venture. All areas were
now covered: the hides, the rendering, the labor, and the money. An unsuspecting
country boy was ready to play the game with the meat cartel in Denver. Later, I
found out it was much larger; it was a national Zionist Kehillah.
A deal was made with Mira Welling, an attractive company attorney for Monfort,
for a monthy rental of $15,000 with an option to purchase the plant in five
years for $1,500,000, with Monfort financing the ten-year contract. After
concluding the deal, I told Mira that I would "give the Jewish boys in Denver a
run for their money now." She abruptly informed me she was Jewish. About a year
after lease/selling me the plant, old man Monfort married the attractive Mira,
and his meat business ceased to have any future
financial problems. In fact, it has blossomed into one of the largest and most
profitable beef packers in the nation.
Nebraska Beef now had one of the finest cow slaughtering facilities in the
United States. The plant, which processed an average of 925 cattle per day
during Monfort's stay, had been considered small for the choice cattle
operations; but it would be comparable to the large cow plants of Packerland in
~-een Bay, Wisconsin, or the Northern States plant in Omaha. Besides, this was
my dream, the ideal facility that could now compete with the local meat cartel
while getting the top dollar for its product and giving the customers service.
The Cattle King Beef Company was an instant success-the fulfillment of an
American dream. In 1982,1 probably made more money than any young person in the
Rocky Mountain area. But within four months of operation, the Kehillah was at
work. Colorado National Bank decided to withdraw from its financial commitment;
fortunately American Ag was run by a couple of good ole' cowboys, and to the
Kehillah's suprise, American Ag did not follow their example. American Ag later
paid for not taking the advice of the Colorado National Bank. Their charter for
making loans was revoked in 1984.
*The three largest choice beef processors in the United States are: Iowa Beef
Packers (IBP), Missouri Beef Packers (EXCELL), and Monfort. Cargill Co., the
international grain cartel, owns the meat giant Excell Corp. Dr. Armand Hammer,
the Jewish oilman who is one of the premiere trade arrangers for the Soviet
Union, has just recently bought the huge Iowa Beef Processing Co. These
processors now dominate the Midwest procurement of fed cattle and the nationwide
sale of boxed beef. A twenty-five year Cargill man was made top Undcr-Sccretary
of Agriculture in 1983. His name is Daniel Amstutz. He is from one of the six
Jewish families from the oligopoly that control the grain companies. The
additional five who belong to the world grain cartel which controls the
transnational movements of grain and other commodities, are: Con-Agra, Dreyfus,
Continental, Bunge, and Andre; but these companies now also dominate most
domestic meat markets. Cargill controls all poultry production within Argentina.
^ Parade magazine identified Michel Fribourg, whose Jewish family is the sole
owner of Continental Grain Company and worth billions (April 16, 1972, p.2).
Continental recently consolidated the third largest boneless beef operation in
the United States, Jewish-owned Peck Packing from Milwaukee, while Con-Agra
purchased the stock from the Gentile owners of the second largest company,
Northern States, and Packerland purchased Stanko's troubled Nebraska Beef, which
made them the largest boneless beef company. These three companies are now the
largest boneless beef companies on the North American Continent.
In 1975, when a Senate subcommittee began investigating the six internationals,
Senator Church was to say of the grain multinationals, "No one knows how they
operate, what their profits are, what they pay in taxes and what effect they
have on foreign policy-or much of anything else about them."^
I was now thirty-five years old. Within two years of the founding of Cattle
King, a friend approached me to take a minor share of the beef companies public,
and I was told that forty per cent of the companies could be sold in excess of
forty million dollars on the American Stock Exchange. I have always relished
independence and found partners (stockholders) and government bureaucrats to be
obstacles. In taking the company public, the company would be burdened with
both, and our company did not need the government's SEC (Security and Exchange
Commission) looking over its shoulder. I declined the offer and believed my
American dream had just begun to blossom.
The company was an instant success because it filled an economic void that
existed in the Western United States-against the wishes of the meat Kehillah.
Greed, hate and blood-thirsty vengeance became the dominant forces in the lives
of the members of the Kehillah upon the opening and success of Cattle King Beef
Company. In 1983, Paul Slater, my head meat salesman at Nebraska Beef in Gering,
heard Ralph Auerbach, owner of Lyco Meat Company in Denver, make the statement:
"If I had two dollars in my pocket, I would give you two dollars to kill that
son-of-a-bitch, but I just don't happen to have two dollars in my pocket." He
was talking about me. Tom Bamrick heard the same thing.
Twenty-one months after Cattle King opened its doors, Auerbach's Lyco Boneless
Beef Company made headline news by closing its doors. An article published in
Denver's Rocky Mountain News on Saturday, April 2, 1983, shows how dominating my
business was. The article points out that "Auerbach's Lyco Meat Company," which
had been in business for eighteen years, had halted work at its beef boning
plant and furloughed the workers. Four months before, Auerbach had signed a
union contract for $10.02-an-hour, and he claimed he was losing money to a
competitor who was paying $6.50 an hour or less, so he was now demanding a
$2-an-hour cut in wages from his unionized workers. He refused to name his
competitor, but everyone knew I was the one he was talking about. This was not
the only reason he closed; we captured his premium, paying customers with a
quality product because now we could give the Denver customers service. I had
now evened The Score with Mr. Auerbach.
This was good strategy on Auerbach's part by which he united the union
organization on his side. He was blaming the furlough on the low-priced
non-unionized labor at Cattle King, not on the fact that we had absorbed most of
his business with a fresher boneless beef product. It was a fact that $2-an-

international Con-Agra and operated by Adolph Raskin. The part that Packerland
owner George Gillette played is easy to analyze. Why would a stout Jewish family
sell an extremely profitable business? And to a Christian? The answer I get is
that nobody could run the business once Ziggy was gone. George Gillette is
neither a cow man nor a packing house operator. He would not know the difference
between a springer or an open cow. He would not know the difference between a
cor ^rcial cut or a choice cut until it was in his mouth. If nobody could
run the plant once Ziggy was gone, why would an NBC Television owner buy
Packerland, a highly management-orientated business dealing with perishables,
and then let it fade out of its primary and historically profitable
business-that of supplying the huge USDA school lunch account? What could he
gain from this, unless he had received an order? His withdrawal from the federal
contracts at Packerland and his early bid to buy my plants (operations which
were centered around the profit made on the USDA school lunch business) made me
more than suspicious. Maybe the following incident will explain why.
Within a few weeks of my public exposure on all the television networks,
starting on September 18, 1983, Gillette called me about purchasing my meat
packing operations. I priced the companies at $40 million. A basis for assessing
an immediate price for any company is to calculate ten times the company's
earnings. Our earnings were running about $350,000 per month, which would
justify the $40,000,000 asking price. However, I did not want to sell. I have
been on my back before and won the match, and I believed our companies would
easily weather the storm. When Gillette called me, he referred to a picture of
me that he had on his desk, saying that I was a handsome guy. Why did he have my
picture, and for how, long had he had it? I never received any offer from
Northern States or anyone else, and I finally ended up selling all of my Gering
holdings to Packerland (Gillette). They bought me out for ten cents on the
dollar. These holdings were worth millions more, but I had no choice, because in
a few short months the media and the government had destroyed the companies'
The question I ask is: "What is the importance of George Gillette's expertise
and connections to the meat packing industry?" He served his apprenticeship
under the direction of Abe Saberstein of the Harlem Globe Trotters, which is
entertainment. George Gillette is listed as Roman Catholic, and he doesn't fit
the typical personality type found in the meat packing business, with its low
margin of profits. There is no question that he is an "odd duck" in my line of
One final detail concerning Gillette that is of increasing significance as I
probe for the final solution to my dilemma is that after leaving Abe and the
Globe Trotters, he became one of the largest owners of NBC-TV affil iate
stations. Could such a

Because of the challenge my companies mounted against the meat cartel, I had
become a target. My comments during some of my business conversations pointed
out the dominance this group had exercised in controlling the beef business, and
the fact that they were our competitors added to this vendetta. While I was
showing my feathers by being cocky, I am sure my opposition thought I was
thumbing my nose at them. I had repeatedly said to our upper management: "We
will give up kissing their asses, and from now on, they will kiss our ass before
we will kiss theirs." I was referring to the beginning operations in Gordon when
we had coolers of shrinking carcasses, and I had to use the Jewish cartel as my
customer to distribute meat, and subsequently I had to handle them with kid
gloves. Now I was determined to sell the meat direct and eliminate the role of
the middlemen of their meat cartel. One of my meat salesmen, Itchie Rosenblum,
who happened to be Jewish, walked out of the sales office after a few weeks on
the payroll during one of my lectures to the sales Dffice personnel on how the
Jewish meat competitors operated. Itchie stomped out Df the office saying: "I've
listened to enough of your Nazism." My philosophy is actually quite different
from one which requires a society controlled by a police state, such as Nazism.
I am a laissez-faire advocate-a believer in individual Freedom, free enterprise,
and the right to make decisions which are free from the
interference of the centralized, bureaucratic government of the state. I am sure
that my lecture on how the Jews controlled the meat industry, delivered in
Itchie's presence, was not the only example the Anti-Defamation League heard of
my remarks. Itchie, who was seventy-three years old at the time, was an old-time
patriarch of the Jewish community of Denver, Colorado. I always suspected Itchie
of being an informant anyway, as everything that went on at Cattle King was
conveyed to my competitors; but it did not matter because we had nothing to
Itchie would always try to get me to visit Seymour at Denver Boneless. Itchie
would tell me that he had spoken to him, and Seymour wanted to make a deal on
meat so he had invited me over to his office. I would tell Itchie to have
Seymour come over to my office at Cattle King, and we could negotiate a deal
here. I felt that I was in the driver's seat, and it is always good business
psychology to negotiate from strength. The first indication of strength would be
who dictated the home field advantage. I knew we had now taken Averch's place as
the only large cow and bull slaughterer in the area, and we were drying up
Denver Boneless's source of supplies from the small area slaughterers who had
temporarily taken Averch's place. Denver Boneless's new source of supplies from
Colorado, since Averch had started to kill sheep, were the small slaughtering
companies in Pueblo, Elizabeth, Kersy, Colorado Springs, and Delta.
After I refused Itchie's invitation to venture over to my competitor's place of
business, another smoke signal was sent to me. One morning, Itchie brought me a
yamulca (the Jewish beanie). I was a fairly big, tough cowboy who liked to wear
five gallon cowboy hats. I couldn't see myself in one of those little beanies. I
didn't think the beanie fitted my image. I threw the thing in my desk and told
Itchie that if Seymour wanted to talk, to get his ass over here. The next
morning, Itchie stomped out of the sales office, calling me a Nazi. The yamulca
was white; I very much doubt
if it meant surrender. It was my feeling that even if I did venture over to the
Jewish camp, I would always be a goyim in their eyes.
Through my research, I have decided that I am among the ten people most wanted
by the Jewish police agency of the Anti-Defamation League, the main branch to
the Zionists' B'nai B'rith Fraternal Lodge, which is nothing more than a
surveillance tentacle of the world-wide Zionist organization. The
League (ADL) was organized in 1913 in Chicago. The heavily-staffed headquarters
knits together fifteen branches in the large cities. Sigmund Livingston was the
first chairman and was succeeded by Meyer Steinbrink of Brooklyn, a member of
the New York State Supreme Court. When Steinbrink retired, ten fellowships were
established to provide annual awards in colleges and universities for writers of
top essays on the study of group prejudice.2
The ADL is a police agency operating throughout the world, which surpasses
either the FBI, CIA, or the KGB in surveillance and record keeping. It admits
maintaining a force of more than two thousand expert investigators in the cities
across the country, with thousands of helpers born with loyalty. The ADL keeps

Mr. Jack D. Lewis Gering Courier P.O. Box 70 1428 Tenth St. Gering, Nebraska
Dear Mr. Lewis:
The Anti-Defamation League of B'nai B'rith is a human relations agency devoted
towards the ideals of pluralism and tolerance, and the fulfillment of the most
essential ideals of American democracy. Our deep civil rights concerns make us
acutely aware of the importance of a free press, and the First Amendment rights
which are so essential for protecting the liberties we all enjoy as American
An important role of our agency is the monitoring of efforts by those groups in
our society which are fundamentally opposed to the democratic ideals described
above. Bigotry of any kind, be it racism, anti-Semitism or intolerance towards a
particular religious or ethnic group, is of concern to the League. We are
especially sensitive to efforts by professional bigots to manipulate the media,
whose First Amendment rights they ultimately seek to destroy, in their efforts
to create hatred and divisiveness in our society.
The small Jewish community of Scottsbluff, which has long enjoyed cordial
relations with its fellow citizens, has contacted us in anguish over a very
large anti-Semitic ad placed in a number of newspapers in western Nebraska by
Rudy "Butch" Stanko, an individual convicted of several crimes. The
advertisement was blatant anti-Semitism, without any subtleties. It made
patently false charges, which have been repeated through the generations by
professed anti-Semites, alleging Jewish control of the media which carried his
ads, among other things.
In attempting to respond to the bigotry reflected in the advertisement, we were
also sensitive to the legitimate First Amendment interests of the media. We have
consulted with Mr. Harold Andersen, publisher of the Omaha World-Herald Mr.
Andersen indicated his strong belief in the fair-mindedness of Nebraska
newspaper publishers, and highly recommended we direct this letter to you and
your colleagues. What we are concerned with is preventing in the future
utilization of the media by bigots to promote hatred against any segment of our
community, whether the targets be Jews, Blacks, Catholics, or other minorities.
In my capacity as director of ADL for this region, I frequently hear complaints
regarding discrimination from many segments of the mosaic which makes up the
people of Nebraska. With your cooperation, we will strive to insure that, in the
future, those who ish to undermine our American democracy, with its principles
of tolerance, respect for our fellow citizens and freedom of expression, will
not be permitted to do so in the form of a newspaper ad containing falsehoods
designed to promote animosity and divisiveness amongst the people of our state.
Should a request for such ads be submitted to your newspaper in the future, we
suggest that appropriate discretion be exercised, and our office contacted.
I appreciate your taking the time to read this letter and I would welcome any
suggestions you may have in our common cause of preserving those ideals which
are fundamental to our national character.
Sheldon Filger Director
This is my letter in response to Mr. Sheldon Filger of the ADL.
Director Anti-Defamation League of B'nai B'rith
Dear Mr Filger:
I would like to take this time to respond to your letter that was sent to most
of the small newspapers in Nebraska. You made one correct statement in this
letter which is the importance of a free press and the First Amendment rights
which are so essential for protecting the liberties we all enjoy as American
I am exercising these rights which I have found to be now available only in the
small rural newspapers of America. The large city newspapers are either
controlled or heavily influenced by an organization of which you are a member.
Your affiliated organization (Anti-Defamation League of B'nai B'rith) is
officially funded according to the Freedom of Information Act in excess of
$5,000,000 a year and unofficially the Anti-Defamation League has unlimited
funds in order to conceal the truth of your precious monopolies. Those
monopolies are the Federal Reserve Corporation and National media coverage (who
decides what makes the news). This excessive power controls the labor of the
Christian American people or for that matter the Christian world.
Your fellow members have majority ownership of the Federal Reserve Corporation
which has never been allowed to be audited. This corporation is shrouded in
secrecy and mystery. This excessive monetary power dictates the tax laws and
monetary regulations imposed on a supposedly free society. .
In addition, I take Offense to your label "anti-Semitic." Just recently, I had a
Jewish patriot stay the evening in my house. If any people are anti-Semitic, it
would be the Zionists who have removed the Arab Moslems and Christians from
their homeland in Israel and the Middle East. The Arabs are as Semitic as any
people on earth.
If any group of people is responsible for distorted propaganda, . .
it is your powerful Jewish-Zionist group. I will continue to utilize this rural

B'nai B'rith, which means "sons of the covenant" in Hebrew, was founded in New
York City in 1843. B'nai B'rith had more than five hundred thousand members in
1960, with four thousand units in forty-six countries. In the United States
alone ii had more than three hundred and fifty thousand members at that time.
Today its membership is even larger. This organization operates worldwide with
international headquarters in Washington, DC. It is heavily staffed, with arms
reaching throughou the United States and the world.
Power behind the organization in the 30's was Nebraska attorney Henry Monsky of
Omaha. He was made president of B'nai B'rith in 1938 and held the posi until his
death in 1947, longeY than anyone has since. He was appointed by U.S. President
Franklin Roosevelt to head the Office of Civil Defense. To outsiders, Monsky
looked like an outstanding American. He was active in a wide range of welfare
and educational organizations, that concealed his racial and prejudical
philosophy. He had been a member of the board of trustees of Father Flanagan's
Boys Home since 1925, was a member of the national board of the Community Chest
in 1935, a member of the national council of Boy Scouts of America, and served
on the voluntary committee of the Office of Civilian Defense during the war. He
was an honorary member of the United Palestine Appeal and the United Jewish
Appeal. Samuel I. Rosenman, adviser to the late Franklin D. Roosevelt both at
the governor's mansion in Albany, N.Y., and later at the White House, writer of
documents and speeches for both Roosevelt and Truman, was Monsky's New York
state chairman of B'nai B'rith.5

The question must be asked: Why should any group be allowed to operate a
Gestapo-like organization in the United States? The answer is understandable
when you realize they have such power because the owners and managers of major
mediae in this country and throughout the world are B'nai B'rith members. No
wonder the U.S. Congress has refused to question the motives of this police
force as it goes about accomplishing its assigned task of world supervision.

Most people's lives in the United States are dominated by television-^ medium
which appeals to all age groups with programs ranging from music videos for the
teeny hoppers, sitcoms for relaxing the blue collar laborers, to news
documentaries for those seeking more in-depth answers to current controversies.
Television has become so pervasive in our lives, surveys show that the average
American views close to six hours of TV a day, that it is rare to find a person
who has beliefs about such topics as apartheid, the unrest in Lebanon and
Israel, or the controversial traffic and seatbelt regulations that have not been
determined or at least influenced by ABC CBS, or NBC. This would be a very
positive condition if the networks were presenting unbiased, in-depth reports,
especially in the news portion of their schedules. But if they are controlled by
a special interest group, and if they do not use the expository method which
presents both sides of controversial issues, they are a threat to our freedom.
If people in a society do not have access to truth, and in fact are taught
untruths, they cannot make correct decisions on matters which affect the lives
of everyone in America and the world. Add to this a written media which jump on
the bandwagon of any sensational story, and you have a truly threatening
According to Marshall McLuhan, the mass media expert of the twentieth century,
television is a cool medium because of its relatively "low definition," which
engages the viewer actively; whereas, print is a hot medium whose high
definition encourages detachment and isolation. Simply translated, this means
that the TV viewers must be entertained and informed in a dramatic way. While
this is a positive situation in sitcoms and variety shows, it is something less
than desirable in newscasts or historical or contemporary documentaries. Such
shows as CBS's Sixty Minutes, ABC's 20/20, and NBC's defunct First Camera should
try as much as possible to avoid dramatizing what they present so that the
viewers will receive a clear picture in contemplating their facts and theories.
This did not occur in my situation, as you will clearly see. But before I tell
my story, let's look at a few

utterance in the program came from Delaney. "Bad meat." Another TV witness,
Rodriquez immediately responded, "Bad meat." Out of what context this phrase was
muttered, the viewer hadn't the slightest idea. It was not even a sentence and
therefore made no assertion, but the viewer was made to believe that the meat at
Cattle King was bad meat. Rodriquez continued by calling the meat "green;"
Delaney interrupted: "Rotten meat?" Rodriquez couldn't quite make the total
accusation and repeated "Green meat, almost rotten." Does this seem coached to
yoi t did to me the first time I viewed it, and even more so every time
With the "green meat" (sounds horrible, doesn't it?) fresh in the viewer's mind,
the camera takes you to a crowded elementary school lunch room where children
were shown eating this horrible meat. In one shot a child at point-blank range
was shown biting and chewing what appeared to be a cabbage burger. While this
went on, Delaney enumerated the percentage of the federal school meat that
Cattle King supplied. Immediately after this innuendo, Joe Padilla said he would
not want his young children eating it, nor did he want it fed to other children.
But it got worse. Rodriquez blurted, "I wouldn't feed my dogs this meat." Isn't
it just a little hard to believe that a company that supplied 30% of the federal
school lunch program's meat, that sold to the professional meat buyers of
Safeway, King Soopers, Wendy's and hundreds of other outlets nationwide, didn't
produce a good enough meat product to feed Ray Rodriquez's dog? Yet this is what
the NBC report alleged. Near the end of the program, Dr. Houston, head of the
inspection division of the USDA, was asked by Delaney if he would eat Cattle
King meat. "Yes," he responded. Delaney incredulously repeated the question.
Houston, on the defense, again responded, "Yes." This is as much defense from
anyone on the program as Cattle King was going to get. No one from Cattle King
was interviewed except two disgruntled ex-employees, a confused meat inspector,
Joe Padilla, and a silhouetted ex-employee both of whose stories were later
reversed. At the very end of the program, the commentator of the First Camera
program, alluding to the overall sanitation problems at Cattle King, showed a
picture of the company building, and made one parting shot: "If you think the
meat you are eating is safe, think again."
Three days after this twenty minute program on national television, the federal
government impounded 7,000,000 pounds of hamburger, and forbade Cattle King and
Nebraska Beef to bid on any future government contracts. But suspension from
government business was not the only implementation, by provision of the
governmental agency law, that the USDA would use against my companies. Because
of a twenty minute dramatized documentary, they disclaimed any agency
responsibility for wrongdoing by the plant, and refused to support the plant,
even though all events complained of, were alleged to have been performed under
inspection by as many as thirteen USDA inspectors and graders on their federal
payroll. The USDA then launched an intensive testing program of the meat and
increased the number of paid federal employees at the plant, and initiated an
intensive criminal investigation in cooperation with the U.S. Department of
Justice into the activities of the plant. During this intense scrutiny, the
Department of Agriculture ended up condemning the future production of fourteen
million pounds that were still on contract and an obligation of Cattle King and
In a country where you are supposed to be innocent until proven guilty, the
USDA's boss in Washington, DC, Dr. Donald Houston, under the advisement of
USDA's attorney Marshall Marcus (Jewish), cooperated immediately and fully in
killing my meat companies and destroying my family's reputation. Houston had
thirteen employees under his agency's jurisdiction while intensely inspecting
die operations and sanitary conditions of my plants. Sanitation was a vital part
of their job in the process for producing meat for the consumer as well as the
federal school lunch program and the military, yet the boss, Houston, made his
decision before any investigation was done or any facts were accumulated. Why he
did not back hi inspection service for a job well done remained a mystery to me.
Later, I realized he was a professional politican who knew that his job and
reputation depended on cooperating with the controlled media and the national
meat cartel. A professional politican made this statement in U.S. Congressman
Paul Findley's book: You don't need many examples of intimidation for
politicians to realize what the potential is. The Jewish lobby is terrific.
Anything it wants, it gets. Jews are educated, often have a lot of money, They
are unique in that respect. For example, anti-abortion supporters are numerous
but not that well educated, and don't have that much money. The Jewish lobbyists
have it all, and they are political activists on top of it.^
Immediately after these accusations and sanctions, Dr. Jay Jones, who is the
USDA veterinarian supervisor of the federal Colorado slaughtering plants, under
Houston's jurisdiction, said: "the charges of obnoxious conditions [at Cattle
King) are not warranted."^ Dr. Jones constantly-monitored the meat-packing
plants of Cattle King, Litvak, and Pepper. Because of the innuendo on NBC where
Houston stated he would eat Cattle King meat, I did not completely realize
Houston's positioi until December 14, when he shared the panel with BGA
executive director Terrene*. Brunner and U.S. Congressman Thomas Harkin, and
read from a twenty-three page prepared statement, vowing to pull inspection
service from all the Stanko factories. I then knew the boss, his federal agency,
and his immediate advisors were against me I was doomed. Dr. McNabb, one of the

hearings. Item (3) was as ridiculous because the USDA had thirteen of their own
paid, federal employees working in the facility who could and would shut down
the facility at any time, it did not meet their standards. I've seen the
inspectors stop production when the steaming hot water sterilization containers
for the boners' knives were a few degrees from conformance. Your local meat
butcher does not even have this type of container in his meat market. I have
also witnessed the stc ;ng of production when the condensation of a very few
drops of water from the ireshly slaughtered beef gathered on the ceiling. To put
the accusation in proper perspective, note the response by the same debarring
officer, Eddie F. Kimbrell, at an interview three months later on January
5,1984. Reporter Dan Green asked Eddie Kimbrell if Cattle King's suspension was
justified. Kimbrell responded: "Information presented for the record on sanitary
conditions, as well as alleged violations of labor laws, if considered
exclusively, would not in my judgement warrant continued suspension." Kimbrell
goes on to point out that the suspension was continued because of Cattle King's
supposed inclusion of dead or dying cattle in the slaughtering operation. Based
on the evidence, my indictment and Cattle King's closure should never have
proceeded past November 1983; but due to continued pressure from the controlled
media and the USDA's reports, all relying on false testimony, the onslaught
continued. Brunner, Houston and Harkin had another hearing in the making. This
time it was called a congressional hearing which would also be held in another
court room, the Supreme Court Room, in Denver, Colorado, on December 14,1983.
Since my plants were receiving all of this free advertising, several of the area
residents attended the hearing. They found out about the legitimacy of our
government politicians (Harkin), watchdogs (BGA) and agencies (USDA).
WITCH HUNT! was how local Scottsbluff Star-Herald writer Janice Grauberger
described the hearing. In her editorial the following morning, she wrote:
When I climbed aboard the commercial jet to head to Denver very early Wednesday
morning I had absolutely no feelings one way or another about the allegations
against Cattle King or the impact the hearing could have on my life in the Twin
Cities. When I got off the plane at Scottbluff late Wednesday night I was
afraid. I was afraid of the power our system has and how easy it is to abuse
that system. I am afraid that once these kinds of wheels are put into motion,
there is little that can be done to change their direction or stop them
Others who attended the congressional hearing in Denver on December 14, 1983,
were later to call this a travesty during which medieval tactics were used to
arrive at the truth.
Anyone who has ever studied American history is familiar with the Salem witch
trials of 1692.* I believe the federal hearings, which were my witch hunt, were
a repeattof the Salem trials of almost 300 years ago. Terrence Brunner was a
combination of Samuel Pafrish and Tituba. Like Minister Parrish, he had
initiated and continued charges from long before the original First Camera show
of September 18,1983. Who was he protecting? Why, the American people, his
beloved children for whom he had an edict from whatever god you might choose:
consumerism, special interests, self-righteousness. It's hard to question the
motives of a man who stands for apple pie, motherhood and the flag. Aside from
being a witness at my hearing, he collaborated with Harkin, the only congressman
at this so-called congressional hearing serving on the panel. In an editorial
four days after the hearings, Al Knight, assistant managing editor of the Rocky
Mountain News, said of the hearing process: "If it had been an orchestra, he
[Brunner] would have been the conductor."
The witnesses for the prosecution were such unreliable sources as Leon Simmons
and Sam Henderson, exemployees and union leaders; Concepcion Giove, the Maggot
Lady; Ann Hollinger, a wife and mother who supposedly contracted salmonella
after purchasing Cattle King meat from King Soopers; various union-oriented meat
inspectors and BGA personnel. The tribunal was headed by Representative Thomas
Harkin of Iowa, a man who opened the hearings by saying he was in Denver not
only because he was chairman for the federal subcommittee for livestock and
poultry, but because he had a second grade son who ate in public schools, so his
concern was motivated by not only public duty but also fatherly responsibility.
Nice, emotional words for what was supposed to be a federal hearing of the
*During these trials, which were initiated by the village's fanatic minister,
Samuel Parrish, testimony was provided by his nine-year-old daughter Betty, and
her eleven-year-old cousin Abigail Williams, who had supposedly fallen into "odd
postures" and "foolish ridiculous speeches". The concerned father had consulted
a local doctor who, diagnosing no physical illness, raised the possibility
of—witchcraft! This made the issue one of good versus evil.
With such a noble cause, Tituba, a slave woman who had come from the West Indies
and introduced the two young girls to the practices of voodoo, came forward at
the pretrial examination and willingly, in a declamatory fashion, gave further
testimony about what people wanted to hear. For three days, she told them
stories of her activities with witches Sarah Good and Sarah Osborne and the
Devil. She described rides through the air with the Devil and how he looked: "A
tiling all over hairy, all the face hairy, and a long nose." As she continued,
she mentioned other people's names, written in the Devil's book, even though she
could not read. Before the hearing was over, and it lasted nearly a year, some
twenty people were hanged and crushed to death because of false testimony. Later
it was discovered that the true cause of the disaster was economic rivalry. This
heinous crime was not really promoted by zealousness for right and good over
wrong and evil, but by profit.

Chapter 12 Who Rules America?
Through the Press we have gained the power to influence while remaining
ourselves in the shade; thanks to the Press we have got the gold in our hands
... PROTOCOLS OF THE LEARNED EWERS OF ZIONISM, ABSTRACT FROM PROTOCOL NUMBER TWO
There is no greater power in the world today than that wielded by the
manipulators ol "public opinion." No king or pope, no conquering general was
more powerful than the few dozen men who control America's mass media.
Their power is not distant and impersonal; each waking hour it reaches into
every American home. It is a persuasive power that shapes and molds the mind of
virtually every citizen, young or old, rich or poor, simple or sophisticated.
The mass media forms our image of the world and then tells us what to think
about that image. Everything we know (or think we know) about events outside our
own neighborhood or circle of acquaintances comes to us via radio, television,
the daily newspaper or the weekly magazine.
It is not only the heavy-handed suppression of selected news stories or the
blatant propagandizing of such grossly pro-minority TV extravaganzas such as
Roots or Holocaust which characterizes the opinion-manipulating techniques of
the media masters. These media manipulators exercise both subtlety and
thoroughness in their management and presentation of both news and
A multitude of things profoundly affect our attitudes. For example, note the way
the television news is covered-which. items are emphasized and which are played
down, the reporter's choice of words and the commentator's tone of voice, and
the choice of headline and illustration.
On top of this, of course, the columnists and editors help remove any remaining
doubt from our minds as to just what we should think! They guide our thoughts
and opinions so that we can be in tune with the "in" crowd, the beautiful
people, and the smart money.
But the really insidious thing about this form of thought control is that even
WHO RULES AMERICA
WHO RULES AMERICA
when we realize the news presentation is biased, the media masters can still
manipulate most of us. They cleverly slant the news they present as well as
establishing tacit boundaries and ground rules for the "permissible spectrum" of
As an example of opinion boundaries, consider the way news of the Middle East is
treated. Some editors, columnists and commentators are lavishly pro-Israel in
ever' -nerance, while others seem nearly neutral. No one, however, dares to be
pro-PaleSt.aian or anti-Jewish, and no one dares suggest that the U.S.
government is backing the wrong side in the Arab-Jewish conflict.
Congressman Paul Findley wrote in his book, They Dare To Speak Out;
AlPAC-the American Israel Public Affairs Committee-is now the
pre-eminent power in Washington...."1 AIPAC crafted the strategy
which produced a $510 million increase in aid for Israel in 1983--an
astonishing increase because it came just after indiscriminate
bombing of Beirut and the massacre of Moslem and Christian refugees
in the Sabra and Shatila refugee camps, events that aroused
unprecedented public criticism of Israeli policy.2
By 1984, the aid level had risen to over $2 billion a year-all of it in grants
with no repayment~and the approval margin was 112 United States Congressmen! It
is amazing that Israel receives one quarter of all U.S. foreign aid.^ Many
congressmen are embarrassed at their involvement in voting for this high level
of aid but are more intimidated by the power of the controlled media over their
lives and profession.^ Congressman Findley was one of the very few congressmen
who criticized the Zionist policy. He was defeated after serving twenty-two
years in Congress, while being a senior member of the House Middle East
Committee. He dedicated his book to his grandsons, Andrew and Cameron-may they
always be able to speak without fear. '
Thus, even the citizens who complain about "managed news" fall into a trap. They
think that, because they are presented with an apparent spectrum of viewpoints
on each major issue, they can believe the editor or commentator of their choice.
They do not realize that it's one of those proverbial "heads I win, tails you
lose" arrangements. The media masters do not leave viewers any options except
the ones they don't mind an audience choosing. I wonder if other Americans have
been as surprised as I was by the paucity of news stories on the high price of
gas and oil in the U.S., especially since the dramatic drop in world oil prices?
Who are the all powerful masters of the media? Whose interests do they serve?
For a partial answer, consider the TV news broadcasting industry. This is
probably the single most influential mass medium, and its example provides the
answer to all of the other media.
Virtually all national and international TV news in the United States is filmed,
edited, and broadcast by just three corporations: American Broadcasting
Companies, Inc. (ABC); Columbia Broadcasting System, Inc. (CBS); and National
Broadcasting Company (NBC). Each company has been under the absolute control of
one man over a long period of time-ranging from 30 years to 55 years. Each of
these men has been able to staff the corporation at every level with officers of
his own choice. In each case, the top executive or owner has been a Jew.-*
The chairman of the board of directors and chief executive officer of ABC is
Leonard Harry Goldenson, who has effectively headed the network since he became
president of the predecessor corporation, American Broadcasting-Paramount
Theatres, Inc., in 1953. (The name was changed to American Broadcasting
Companies, Inc., in 1965.)
CBS has been under the domination of William S. Paley virtually since its
formation. The son of a Russian immigrant, Paley left the family cigar business
in 1928, when he was twenty-seven, and bought United Independent Broadcasters
for $500,000. He renamed it Columbia Broadcasting System and made himself
president. He became chairman of the board in 1946 and held that post until his
partial retirement in April 1983. He remains one of the largest CBS
stockholders, a consultant, a director, and the Chairman of the Board's
Executive Committee, although his old post of chairman of the board is now
filled by Thomas H. Wyman.
CBS has a separate TV subsidiary, CBS Television Network. Its president, a Paley
appointee like most other top CBS officers, is James H. Rosenfield.
ABC and CBS employ hundreds of persons in executive positions, and there are
continuous important personnel changes. It is estimated that at least one-third
of the current executives are Jews. Three men who have played the most important
role in setting the policies and picking the leading personnel of the two
networks-James Rosenfield, Leonard Goldenson, and William Paley-are all Jews.
NBC is a wholly owned subsidiary of RCA Corporation, which was controlled by
David Sarnoff until his death in 1970. Saraoff was a Russian-Jewish immigrant
who became president of RCA in 1930 and was chairman of its board of directors
in 1947. His son, Robert, took over in 1970 and ruled until the end of 1975.
Since 1975, there has been a succession of different chairmen, but the power has
remained with the senior officers of the corporation and with a close-knit
Jewish faction on the board.
Of fifteen RCA directors listed in the 1982 edition of Broadcasting Cablecastin
Yearbook, five are Jewish, namely; George H. Fuchs, Julius Koppelman,
WHO RULES AMERICA
WHO RULES AMERICA
Roy H. Pollack, I. Owen Funderburg, and Andrew Sigler.
Of twelve executive vice-presidents, six are Jews. They are the first three of
the above-named directors plus: Irving K. Kessler, Herbert S. Schlosser
(formerly president of NBC), and Eugene A. Sekulow. Finally, both the RCA
treasurer, Melvin Cornfield, and the controller, Stanley N. Roseberry, are Jews.
The Jewish influence on NBC's programming policies does not stop with the par'
"t corporation. NBC itself has had a succession of Jewish chief executives. One
of u,c most recent chief executives was Fred Silverman. He was replaced in 1981
by Grant Tinker, a Gentile; but the present vice-chairman of NBC is Irwin
Segelstein, a Jew. Furthermore, the former vice-chairman, Richard Salant, who
became a "general advisor" to NBC's top management in 1981 is a Jew.
The situation is no different in NBC's news subsidiary. The president of NBC
News (since March 1982), the man in charge of all of NBC's television and radio
news programming, is Reuben Frank, also Jewish.
The list of 137 NBC vice-presidents in the latest Broadcasting Cablecasting
Yearbook reveals a heavy preponderance of the same tight-knit minority
throughout the executive structure of the corporation-beginning with Lenore
Cantor, Lucille Chazanoff, and Aaron Cohen and running through some forty more
distinctly Jewish names, all immediately recognizable as Jewish by surname
The aforementioned "Big Three"«ABC, CBS, and NBC-have a virtual monopoly on
network television broadcasting in the United States, and they account for most
network broadcasting, as well as broadcasting, throughout the world. Their only
significant competitor in the latter arena is Mutual Broadcasting System (MBS),
which has 941 affiliated radio stations (but no TV stations) across the country.
The president and chief executive officer of MBS is Martin Rubenstein, a Jew.6
Many naive members of the nation's TV and radio audience believe that they have
the option of tuning into one of the noncommercial "educational" stations for
objective, unbiased programming. Alas, the same minority interests have fastened
their grip on America's "public" broadcasting even more tightly than on the
commercial sector. The president of the Public Broadcasting Service is Jewish
personality Lawrence Grossman (Memphis Commercial Appeal, January 10,1976, p.
The author of the best-selling American classic, TtieAuerbach Will, and Our
Crowd, Stephen Birmingham, wrote: "broadcasting...the major networks are headed

this country, and has studied and written about Jewish lifestyles and
Controlling interest in the leading national daily newspaper, the New York
Times, is held by the Sulzberger family. Founded by a Jewish newspaper baron,
Adolph S. Ochs from Philadelphia, in 1896, the paper has gradually grown in size
and influence. Arthur Hays Sulzberger, Adolph's son-in-law, succeeded him on his
death in 1935. Thirty-one years later, the paper rests in the hands of his son,
Arthur Ochs Sulzberger. The company owns nine slightly smaller dailies, four
weeklies, six magazines, two broadcasting companies, three book publishing
companies, and part of three Canadian paper mills. The Times employs the
nation's largest full-time news staff: 550 journalists in New York, 32 outside
the U.S., 40 in Washington, and 19 throughout the country. One has to travel
across the country and abroad to appreciate fully the influence and uniqueness
of the Times?
This, as syndicated columnist Nicholas Von Hoffman pointed out, is because the
Times spends the kind of money on foreign correspondents that other papers,
magazines, and networks will not.10 It is also because, "So few print or
broadcast editors are able to make independent judgements of their own on the
news, simply because of their distance from the source of news or their lack of
knowledge on the subject, and prefer the safety of letting the nation's most
prestigious paper do their decision-making for them." This, according to Von
Hoffman, is particularly so on the Israeli issue, where any adverse publicity
can bring down vociferous abuse on tlu editor from the nation's most
meticulously organized lobby. There is no newspaper in the world that can
compare with the New York Times for sheer coverage of news. both domestic and
Another important influence the Times exerts stems from the often reported I'm
that it has long been read by many of our elected officials, from the President
down. They may curse it or toss it into the wastebasket, but they cannot
entirely ignore it.' -
Abe Rosenthal is fanatically devoted to the Times. He was first hired as a $12-;
week stringer at New York City College, spent nine years as a foreign
correspondent, and became metropolitan editor in 1963. Under the patronage of
Sulzberger, he became managing editor in 1969 and was elevated to executive
editor in 1977.
He has ruthlessly shifted and rearranged the staff, installing his own men as
editors, including Managing Editor Seymour Topping, Deputy Managing Editor
Arthur Gelb, Assistant Managing Editor James Greenfield, News Editor Allan
Siegal, and Foreign Editor Robert Semple. There has been a gradual disappearance
of Christians from the staff; those who remain, like Washington Bureau Chief
WHO RULES AMERICA
WHO RULES AMERICA
Hedrick Smith or Assistant Foreign Editor Terence Smith, show a distinct Zionist
leaning. (Smith recently returned from a four year stint as the Times
correspondent in Israel.)13
The next most important daily of the nation, the Washington Post, is printed in
its capital. The Post has almost as much influence on American and world minds
as the Times, and many of its stories are imitated by the smaller dailies
throughout the co-'ntry. The Post was purchased by Zionist Eugene Meyer after
World War I. Iv. yer had been one of the most powerful men in the United States
during World War I. He was appointed by President Wilson to chair the War
Finance Corporation.14 Meyer came out of the chairmanship with many millions of
dollars, after which he proceeded to buy Allied Chemical Corporation, the
Washington Post, and other properties. ^ The Post is now controlled by the same
Jewish-Zionist theories of his daughter, Mrs. Katharine Meyer Graham. Eugene
Meyer, claims Myron Fagan, a well-respected authority on the ADL, was a top
brass of the ADL. He also stated: "Chairman of the Board of Directors of the
Associated Press at one time was Eugene Meyer."1"
In December 1930, Eugene Meyer became the governor of the Federal Reserve Board.
Meyer's father had been one of the partners of Lazard Freres of Paris and the
Lazard Brothers of London. Lazard Freres and the Lazard's are blood related to
the Rothschilds, and compatible with Kuhn-Loeb as international bankers, and
foremost in the importation and exportation of gold.
In a recent book by Ben J. Bagdikian, The Media Monopoly, the author documents
that the media monopoly is steadily closing down more newspapers and magazines.
Washington, DC, with only one paper, the Post, is unique among world capitals.
London has eleven daily newspapers, Paris fourteen, Rome eighteen, Tokyo
seventeen, and Moscow nine. Bagdikian cites a study from the 7952 World Press
Encyclopaedia that the United States is at the bottom of industrial nations in
the number of daily newspapers sold per 1000 population. Sweden tops the list
with 572, and the United States is at the bottom with 287. However, there is
still a universal distrust of the media, because of the worldwide bias monopoly.
The Jewish influence has been less visible on the greatest national financial
daily newspaper, the Wall Street Journal; but the president and a director of
its publisher, Dow Jones & Co., Inc., is Warren Henry Phillips, son of Abraham
and Juliette Rosenberg Phillips. The editorial policy of the Wall Street Journal
is 100% Zionist-inspired and controlled.1^
The impact of Jewish influence in the daily newspapers is compounded in the news
of the two leading U.S. news magazines, Time and Newsweek. The wife of the
chairman of the board of Time, Inc., Andrew Heiskell, is Marian Sulzberger
Dryfoos Heiskell, sister of Arthur Ochs Sulzberger, President of the New York
Times. Mrs. Katharine Meyer Graham, Chairman of the Washington Post, owns
Newsweek magazine.1" The same is true for news magazines as with newspapers.
Jewry owns many outright (Esquire, McCall's, U.S. News and WorldReport, etc.),
and controls the remainder through advertising "persuasion."^
The largest circulation of magazine readership, with 19,168,096, is TV Guide,
owned by Walter H. Annenberg, the president, and son of Moses L. Annenberg. It
is followed by Family Circle, with a circulation of 8,364,442, and owned by none
other than the Sulzberger family of the New York Times.^ The list can go on, but
the point is made and becomes repetitious.
National advertising can often make the difference between a local newspaper's
profitability or loss. Most of the national firms hire Samuel I. Newhouse's
agency for their advertising campaigns. The extent of the power of National
Newspaper Representative (Newhouse's advertising agency) is immense. The
prestige of this organization is so extensive, with the consignment by national
firms for their exclusive advertising, that Newhouse is able to increase or
reduce the flow of national advertising revenue to any given newspaper.
The Jewish newspaper baron, Newhouse, son of Meyer Newhouse, owns in whole or
part more newspapers than anyone else in the United States (Time, July 27, 1962,
p.56). His leverage in gaining a position to buy these newspapers was through
his firm's National Newspaper Representative, Newhouse Newspapers and Metro
Suburbia, Inc.,22 while he was financed through the leading Kehillah bankers in
New York. Because of his diversification in the ownership of various newspapers
throughout the country, it was only natural that Newhouse should organize and
centralize the National Newspaper Representative. Since, the NNR has contact
with every major newspaper headquarters. With this ability, the major
merchandising firms in the nation give NNR the exclusive right to represent
their advertising budget in regard to nationwide newspaper advertising. A Jewish
member or owner of a major merchandising firm in New York City is thus able to
significantly affect the financial revenue and well-being of a newspaper in
California, Texas, Vermont, etc., because he requested the Newhouse agency to
handle the national advertising of his firm. The mechanics, especially in regard
to a small newspaper, would be to significantly reduce national advertising
allotments to a paper which might deviate from support of Jewish positions.
Many newspaper columnists constantly push the Zionist line. Only some of these
columnists are Jewish; but practically all of them, because of the Kehillah's
control of the media, must take a pro-Zionist line or face the loss of their

furore against syndicated columnists Evans and Novak when they made the
slightest shift from a 100% pro-Israeli position. The barrage of letters from
Jews to the newspapers carrying their column forced them to proclaim their
support of the survival and security of Israel.
On the newspaper level, there are at least 909 major newspapers which are either
owned or controlled by Jews. This summary list was provided by Lord's C~"enant

Scottsbluff, North Platte, Grand Island, Lincoln, and other major newspapers in
Nebraska are owned and controlled by the Seagrest family. For years, the male
descendants have been leaders of Masonry. The vast majority of Gentile and
Christian Masons believe in liberty, equality, and fraternity. Why was Mr.
Seagrest's first inquiry based on "religion" in hiring publisher Mark Anthony?
He was only concerned if Mr. Anthony was Catholic.23 Present day Masonry is one
of the finest charitable organizations on earth, but I find the history and the
basis for Masonry interesting. The symbols of the Freemasons are the Star of
David and the reconstruction of the temple of Solomon. The Grandmaster, although
known by very few brothers, exists. What possible interest have the working
Masons in rebuilding the temple of Solomon under the Star of David? Do they do
it on their own account or for the privilege of King Solomon's descendants? The
great historians, Nesta Webster and William Guy Carr, confirm that Masonry is
the Sanhedrin's invention and led unsuspectingly by Judiaism. In 'Israelite
Archives' (p. 651), France's minister of justice, Cremieux, wrote: "And our good
Freemasons with their blind eyes help the Jews in the 'great work' of building
up this new temple of Solomon."^

The Kehillah has control of the book and publishing industry, or has the
governing say about it. Random House, Rhinehart, Harcourt-Brace, Citadel Press,
and Viking Press are just a few examples of Jewish-owned publishing companies.25
U.S. Congressman Paul Findley describes his quest for a publisher in his most
recent book, They Dare To Speak Out:
My quest for a publisher began in March 1983 and was predictably long and
frustrating. Declining to represent me, New York literary agent, Alexander
Wylie, forecast with prophetic vision that no major U.S. publisher would accept
my book. He wrote, "It's a sad state of affairs." Bruce Lee, of William Morrow
and Company, called my manuscript "outstanding" but his company concluded that
publishing it "would cause trouble in the house and outside" and decided against
"taking the heat." Robert Loomis, of Random House, called it an "important book"
but reported that the firm's leadership decided the theme was "too sensitive."
Thomas Wallace, of W.W. Norton and Company found it "well-written" but concluded
that it would be confusing to Norton's sales force, which would soon be
marketing a book on U.S.-lsrael relations by George W. Ball. For various
reasons, Dodd-Mead, St. Martin's Press, Dell Publishing, Pantheon Books, and
Franklin Watts also rejected it.
In July 1984, veteran publisher Lawrence Hill agreed to take the gamble, and to
him I am deeply grateful.
Finally finding a publisher, Findley now has difficulty finding outlets.
Recently, a Chicago newspaper could find only three copies of his book in one
bookshop in the entire city of Chicago, amazing in the light of his having
served twenty-two years in the House of Representatives. The reason for this
suppression is his outspoken criticism of Jewish power.
Pressure is exerted upon non-Jewish publishers by the influence of Eugene Katz,
President of Katz Agency, Inc.. His company is the main book store distributor
for books throughout the world. Another pressure which exists is the American
Association of Book Wholesalers, of which Aaron Rabinowitz is president.2" Henry
(Hank) Garfinkle governs outlets such as news stands, while Harry Scherman
oversees and types out the book-of-the-month clubs. Non-Jewish publishers are
inclined to print only what the Kehillah desires.. .if they are to stay it
business. Publishers are said to be subservient to Garfinkle's power (Wall
Street Journal, July 3, 1969, pp.1, 17).
Eighteen publishers turned down Eustace Mullins's book, Mullins on the Federal
Reserve, without comment; but the nineteenth, Devin Garrity, president ol Devin
Adair Publishing Company, gave Eustace some friendly advice in his office. '
like your book, but we can't print it. Neither can anybody else in New York. Why
don't you bring in a prospectus for your novel, and I think we can give you an
advance. You may as well forget about getting the Federal Reserve book
published. I doubt if it could ever be printed."(Mullins has since sold 30,000
through underground channels.)
Two articles, "Battle for Press Control" and "Bennett's Struggle," reproduced on
the following pages, were written by Henry Ford, Sr., in the 1920's. These
WHO RULES AMERICA
WHO RULES AMERICA
articles describe how the Kehillah made inroads in the media industry 65 years
ago. These inroads have been developed so extensively in our present lifestyles
that we no
longer hear what the past great industrialists had to say about our industries,
and we have become unaware of the Kehilla's control over our minds.*
* THE BATTLE FOR PRESS CONTROL ~~~ ~~
Tlie first instinctive answer which the Jew makes to any criticism of
s race coming from a non-Jew is that of violence,-threatened or inflicted. This
statement will be confirmed by hundreds of thousands of citizens of the United
States who have heard the evidence with their own ears, seen it with their own
If the candid investigator of the Jewish question happens to be in business, the
"boycott" is the first answer of which the Jews seem to think. Whether it be a
newspaper, or a mercantile establishment, or a hotel, or a dramatic production,
or any manufactured article whose maker has adopted the policy that "my goods
are for sale, but not my principles"—if there is any manner of business
connection with the student of the Jewish question, the first "answer" is
The technique is this: a "whispering drive" is begun first. Disquieting rumors
begin to fly thick and fast. "Watch us get him," is the word that is passed
along. Jews in charge of national ticker news services adopt the slogan of "a
rumor a day." All leading news agencies in America are Jew-controlled. Jews in
charge of newspapers adopt the policy of "a slurring headline a day." Jews in
charge of the newsboys on the streets (all the street concerns are pre-empted by
Jewish "padrones" who permit only their own boys to sell) give orders to
emphasize certain news in their street cries - "a new yell against him every
day." The whole campaign against the critic of Jewry, whoever he may be, is
keyed to the threat, "Watch us get him."
"The whispering drive," "the boycott," these are the chief Jewish answers.
This is the story of a boycott which lasted over a number of years; it is only
one of numerous stories of the same kind which can be told of America. There
have been even more outstanding cases since this one, but it dates back to the
dawn of Jewish ambitions and power in the United States, and it is the first of
the great battles which Jewry waged, successfully, to snuff out the independent
It concerns the long-defunct New York Herald, one newspaper to remain
independent of Jewish influence in New York. The Herald enjoyed an existence of
90 years, which was terminated in 1920 by the inevitable amalgamation. It
performed great feats in the world of news gathering. It sent Henry M. Stanley
to Africa to find Livingstone. It backed the Jeannette Expedition to the Arctic
regions. It was largely instrumental in having the first Atlantic cables laid.
Its reputation among newspaper men was that neither its news nor its editorial
columns could be bought or influenced. But perhaps its greatest feat was the
maintenance, during many years, of its journalistic independence against the
combined attack of New York Jewry. Its proprietor, the late James Gordon
Bennett, a great American citizen famed for many helpful activities, had always
maintained a friendly attitude toward the Jews of his city. He apparently
harbored no prejudices against them. Certainly he never deliberately antagonized
them. But he was resolved to preserve the honor of independent journalism. He
never bent to the policy that the advertisers had
something to say about the editorial policy of the paper, either as to
influencing it for publication or suppression. In Bennett's time, the American
press was, in the majority, free. Today it is entirely Jewish controlled. This
control is variously exercised, sometimes resting only on the owner's sense of
expediency. But the control is there, and for the moment it is absolute. Fifty
years ago there were many more newspapers in New York than there are today;
since then, amalgamation has reduced the competition to a select few who do not
compete. This development has been the same in other countries, particularly
Bennett's Herald, a three cent newspaper, enjoyed the highest prestige and was
the most desirable advertising medium due to the class of its circulation. At
that time, the Jewish population of New York was less than one-third of what it
is today, but there was much wealth represented in it.
Now, what every newspaper man knows is this: most Jewish leaders are always
interested either in getting a story published or getting it suppressed. There
is no class of people who read the public press with so careful an eye to their
own affairs as do the Jews. The Herald simply adopted the policy, from the
beginning of this form of harassment, that it was not to be permitted to sway
the Herald from its duty as a public informant And this policy had a reflex
advantage for the other newspapers in the city.
When a scandal occurred in Jewish circles (and at the turn of the century
growing Jewish influence in America produced many), influential Jews would swarm
into the editorial offices to arrange for the suppression of the story. But the
editors knew that the Herald would not suppress anything for anybody. What was
the use of one paper suppressing if the others would not? So editors would say:
"We would be very glad to suppress this story, but the Herald will use it, so
we'll have to do the same in self-protection. However, if you can get the Herald
to suppress it, we will gladly do so, too."
But the Herald never succumbed; neither pressure of influence nor promise of
business nor threats of loss availed. It printed the news.
There was a certain Jewish banker who periodically demanded that Bennett
discharge the Herald's financial editor. The banker was in the business of
disposing of Mexican bonds at a time when such bonds were least secure. Once,
when an unusually large number of bonds were to be unloaded on unsuspecting
Americans, the Herald published the story of an impending Mexican revolution,
which presently ensued. The banker frothed at the mouth and moved every
influence he could to change the Herald's financial staff, but was not able to
effect the change even of an office boy.
Once, when a shocking scandal involved a member of a prominent family, Bennett
refused to suppress it, arguing that if the episode had occurred in a family of
any other race, it would be published regardless of the prominence of the
figures involved. The Jews of Philadelphia, under the influence of Adolph Ochs,
secured suppression there; but because of Bennett's unflinching stand, there was
no suppression in New York.
A newspaper is a business proposition. There are some matters it cannot touch
without putting itself in peril of becoming a defunct concern. This is
especially true since newspapers no longer receive their main support from the
public but from the advertisers. The money the reader gives for the paper
scarcely suffices to pay for the amount of white paper he receives. In this way,
advertisers cannot be disregarded any more than the paper mills can be. As the
most extensive advertisers in New York were, and are, the department stores, and
as most department stores were, and are, owned by Jews, it comes logically that
Jews often influence the news policies of the papers with whom they deal.
At that time, it had always been the burning ambition of the Jews to elect a
Jewish mayor of New York. They selected a time when the leading parties were
disrupted to push forward their choice. The method they adopted was
characteristic. They reasoned that the newspapers would not dare to refuse the
dictum of the combined department store owners, so they drew up a "strictly
confidential" letter which they sent to the owners of the New York newspapers,
demanding support for the Jewish mayoral candidate. The newspaper owners were in
a quandary. For several days
WHO RULES AMERICA
WHO RULES AMERICA
they debated how to act. All remained silent. The editors of the Herald cabled
the news to Bennett who was abroad. It was then that Bennett exhibited that
boldness and directness of judgement which characterized him. He cabled back,
"Print the letter." It was printed in the Herald, the arrogance of the Jewish
advertisers was exposed, and non-Jewish New York breathed easier and applauded
The Herald explained frankly that it could not support a candidate of private
interests because it was devoted to the interests of the public. But the Jewish
leaders vowed vengeance against the Herald and against the man who dared to
expose their game.
They had not liked Bennett for a long time, anyway. The Herald was the real
"society papv of New York, but Bennett had a rule that only the names of
really prominent families should be printed. The stories of the efforts of
newly-rich Jews to break into the Herald's society columns are some of the best
that are told by old newspaper men.
The whole "war" culminated in a contention which arose between Bennett and
Nathan Straus, a German-Jew whose business house was known under the name of
R.H. Macy and Company, Macy being the Scotsman who built up the business and
from whose heirs Straus obtained it. Straus was something of a philanthropist in
the ghetto, but the story goes that Bennett's failure to proclaim him as a
philanthropist led to ill feeling. A long newspaper war ensued, the subject of
which was the pasteurization of milk—a stupid discussion which no one took
seriously except Bennett and Straus.
The Jews, of course, took Straus' side. The Jewish speakers pictured Bennett as
the most vile businessman in "persecuting" a noble Jew. It went so far that the
Jews were able to put resolutions through the Board of Aldermen.
Long before, of course, Straus, a very heavy advertiser, had withdrawn every
dollar's worth of his business from the Herald. And now the combined and
powerful elements of New York Jewry gathered to deal a staggering blow to
Bennett. The Jewish policy of "Dominate or Destroy" was at stake, and Jewry
As one man, the Jewish advertisers withdrew their advertisements. Their assigned
reason was that the Herald was showing animosity against the Jews. The real
purpose of their action was to crush an American newspaper owner who declared to
be independent of them.
The blow they delivered was a staggering one. It meant the loss of $600,000 a
year. Any other newspaper in New York would have been put out of business by it.
The Jews knew that and sat back, waiting for the downfall of the man they chose
to consider their enemy.
But Bennett was a fighter. Besides, he knew the Jewish psychology probably
better than any'other non-Jew in New York. He turned the tables on his opponents
in a startling and unexpected fashion. The coveted positions in his papers had
always been used by the Jews. These he immediately turned over to non-Jewish
merchants under exclusive contracts. Merchants who had formerly been crowded
into the back pages and obscure corners by the more opulent Jews now blossomed
forth full page in the most popular spaces. One of the non-Jewish merchants who
took advantage of the new situation was John Wanamaker, whose large
advertisements from that time forward were conspicuous in the Bennett
newspapers. The Bennett papers came out with undiminished circulation and full
advertising pages. The well planned catastrophe did not then occur. Instead,
there was a rather comical surprise. Here were the non-Jewish merchants of
America enjoying the choicest service of a valuable advertising medium, while
the Jewish merchants were unrepresented. Unable to stand the spectacle of trade
being diverted to non-Jewish merchants, the Jews came back to Bennett requesting
the use of his columns for advertising. The "boycott" had been hardest on the
boycotters. Bennett received all who came, displaying no rancor. They wanted
their old positions back, but Bennett said no. They argued, but Bennett said no.
They offered more money, but Bennett said no. The choice positions had been
Bennett triumphed, but it proved a costly victory. All the time Bennett was
resisting them, the Jews were growing more powerful in New York; and they were
obsessed by the idea that to control journalism in New York meant to control the
thought of the whole country.
The number of newspapers gradually diminished through combinations of
publications. Adolph S. Ochs, a Philadelphia Jew, acquired the New York Times.
He soon made it into a great
newspaper, but one whose bias is to serve the Jews. It is the quality of the
Times as a newspaper that makes it so weighty as a Jewish organ. In this paper,
the Jews are persistently lauded, eulogized and defended; no such tenderness is
granted other races.
Then Hearst came into the field-a dangerous agitator because he not only
agitated the wrong things, but because he agitated the wrong class of people. He
surrounded himself with a coterie of Jews, pandered to them, worked hand in
glove with them, but never told the truth about them, never "gave them away."
The trend toward Jewish control of the press set in strongly and has continued
that way ever since. The old names, made great by great editors and American
policies, slowly dimmed.
A newspaper is founded either on a great editorial mind, in which event it
becomes the expression of a powerful personality, or it becomes
institutionalized as to policy and becomes a commercial establishment. In the
latter event, its chances for continuing life beyond the lifetime of its founder
are much stronger.
The Herald was Bennett, and with his passing, it was inevitable that a certain
force and virtue should depart out of it. Bennett, advancing in age, dreaded
lest his newspaper, on his death, should fall into the hands of the Jews. He
knew that they regarded it with longing. He knew that they had pulled down,
seized, and afterward built up many an agency that had dared to speak the truth
about them, and boasted about it as a conquest for Jewry.
Bennett loved the Herald as a man loves a child. He so arranged his will that
the Herald should not fall into individual ownership, but that its revenues
should flow into a fund for the benefit of the men who had worked to make the
Herald what it was. He died in May 1919. The Jewish enemies of the Herald,
eagerly watchful, once more withdrew their advertising to force, if possible,
the sale of the newspaper. They knew that if the Herald became a losing
proposition, the trustees would have no course but to sell, notwithstanding
But there were also interests in New York who were beginning to realize the
peril of a Jewish press. These interests provided a sum of money for the Heralds
purchase by Frank A. Munsey.
Then to the general astonishment, Munsey discontinued the gallant old paper, and
bestowed its name as part of the name of New York Sun.
The newspaper managed by Bennett is extinct. The men who worked on it were
scattered abroad in the newspaper field and, in the main, retired or dead.
Even though the Jews had not gained actual possession of the Herald, they at
least succeeded in driving another non-Jewish newspaper from the field. They set
about obtaining control of several newspapers; their victory is now complete.
But the victory was a financial victory over a dead man. The moral victory, as
well as the financial victory, remained with Bennett while he lived; the moral
victory still remains with the Herald. It demonstrated what could be done by
fearless, independent minds, supported by men who knew they worked and loved it
for its own sake. It demonstrated what could have been achieved had these men
received support of wideawake, active, non-Jewish Americans. The Herald is
immortalized as the last bulwark against Jewry in New York and in America.
Today, the Jews are completely masters of the journalistic field in New York as
they are in any capital in Europe, and almost the entire world. Indeed, in
Europe, there frequently emerges a newspaper that gives the real news of the
Jews. There is none in New York or any major city in America.
And thus the situation will remain until Americans shake themselves from their
long sleep, and look with steady eyes at the national situation. That look will
be enough to show them all the usurpers of the nation.

Chapter 13 NBC's EGA
"The press has become the greatest power within the Western countries, more
powerful than the legislature, the executive and the judiciary. One would then
like. to ask: By what law has it been elected and to whom is it responsible?
As I mentioned in Chapter 11, "Trial by Media," and followed up with proof in
Chapter 12, "Who Rules America?", the American public is influenced and then
controlled by the various news mediae. Considering the irrefutable dominance of
tin media by this group of people with common interests, the reader must realize
that if these same people who monopolize the media have holdings or ties to
other businesses, they have the power to sway public opinion for or against
whomever they wish. Throughout this book, I have given evidence of the Jewish
monopoly of die meat industry on a national level. Given this fact, by 1983, my
rapid growth constituted a threat which the Jewish meat cartel felt had to be
eliminated. Is it just coincidence that the man who bought me out owns five NBC
affiliates? Remember that First Camera was an NBC program. Is it just
coincidence that the EGA is located in Chicago, where Wilfred Grant and William
Kandor live? By focusing on the EGA investigation and how they gathered their
material, the reader will be able to see how they forced and managed to put me
out of business.
The following background information will help the reader to understand the
operations of the EGA. It was founded in 1928 by a group of Methodist ministers
to keep an eye on the government of Illinois. Once established, it plugged along
for the next forty years, doing very little to effectively change the political
scene in the state. In 1961, the board hired George Mahin as its executive
director, and things changed rapidly. He began "Operation Watchdog," a new
approach to unearthing news by investigators whose responsibility was the
uncovering of corruption in government. After the investigators made their
discoveries, they turned their findings over to the newspapers for publication.
This plan worked extremely well and continued into the reign of Terry Brunner,
present executive director since 1971.
In the mid 1970's, however, Brunner began to change the direction of the
BGA from a newspaper-oriented medium to that of television. The first joint
venture was with Mike Wallace of Sixty Minutes, in which they did a report on
Medicaid rip-offs. From then on, Brunner and the TV networks formed a team,
especially with the national networks. A former staff investigator, Ron Berher,
put it this way:
If you wanted to go up the ladder at the BGA, you didn't want to put in time on
a local story. Nobody gave a shit about them. The joke was 'at if you did a
local story, maybe Terry would mention it at a Friday otaff meeting and say,
"Nice job." But it was the 20/20 stories that got you invited to the barbecue
dinners at the Brunner's house.
This close relationship with TV led Brunner to eventually sign an agreement with
20/20 in 1979 to do eight investigative reports during the next year. This may
sound like a great success story to the reader, but it must be remembered that
the BGA was founded to act as a watchdog in Illinois, and that it was "privately
funded" On top of this, while it is one thing to be on the lookout for
violations of the public's rights, it is another to be actively seeking to fill
eight spots on a national television program. A conflict of interests could
Now let me plug another ingredient in: Who are the trustees of the BGA?
According to Seth S. King, in a New York Times, January 4, 1970, article: "The
Association's board of directors includes the heads of many of Chicago's largest
corporations and business concerns. These provide most of the funds for its
annual budget which reached $175,000 last year." Thus, it is more than likely
that certain trustees, with vested interests, could affect the kinds of
investigations the BGA initiated. In fact, Terry Brunner stated that, and I
quote from Nancy Banks article in the Reader, August 6, 1976: "The board of
directors and the board of trustees formulate general policies and help set
While my theory about the origin of the BGA probe of Cattle King may be
conjecture, what allowed the BGA to go national in its coverage is not. In 1979
the John D. and Catherine T. MacArthur Foundation provided a $2,500,000 donation
to the BGA over a five year period. This, in addition to their yearly private
contributions, gave them an annual budget of $800,000, and with this they
expanded their staff to thirty and opened a branch office in Washington, DC.
This expansion led to my difficulties, because with an office in Washington, DC,
they could lead and propagandize with the national government and other branches
of the media. First we need to trace the BGA's evolution from a newspaper to a
Along with their 20/20 contract, the BGA continued to provide stories, or
investigative support for stories, to Sixty Minutes and later to the NBC's First
Camera program. This caused a change in their philosophy and approach to news

stories According to William Mullen in "A Civic Watchdog Under Fire," April
1981: "On the surface, it would seem the BGA has never been more successful.
Below the surface, however, that impression may not be entirely accurate."
Mullen goes on to state that the Chicago Sun-Times and Tribune had already cut
relations with the BGA by 1981 due to questionable motives and shoddy research,
as well as devious reporting techniques. William Jones, the managing editor of
the Tribune, is quoted by Mullen as saying: "Newspapers have been working less
and less with the BGA. We've had this uncomfortable feeling over the last couple
of years that-the organization JBGA] tends now to look more at drama than
substance." Jones goes on to add: "In trying to go national, in many ways the
BGA has gone Hollywood. They are thinking more now in terms of film footage than
about the content of their investigations." Later in the article, Ralph Otwell,
editor of the Sun Times, says:
The strength of the BGA at one time was that it could provide the people to
check records and document examinations for reporters whose papers didn't have
the staff to do these things. Television has different demands, and obviously to
work with them, the BGA had to change its approach.
This approach led to the same type of tactics that the BGA used against Cattle
King. In Mullen's article, Jones accurately identified this approach when
a proposed BGA article on the irregularities in the taking of the 1980 census:
Their approach was a little too cowboy and Indian. The Tribune is not against
undercover reporting, but it has to be done under extremely controlled
circumstances only where a story can't be obtained any other way. We basically
feel at this point we have more confidence in our own investigations than the
What theSw/i Times and the Tribune recognized by 1981, so did Channel 2,
WBBM-TV, of Chicago. In an hour long documentary in April of that year,
producers Scott Craig and Molly Bedell and reporter Bill Kurds took the BGA to
the cleaners. They exposed them, especially in the case of the show provided for
ABC's 20/20, "Arson for Profit in Uptown," for making a story out of hot air.
According to Gary Deeb, TV and radio critic of the Sun Times : "Channel 2 proves
that the circumstantial evidence gathered by ABC and the BGA may have seemed
rather electrifying on the air, but was weak and inconclusive in reality." Deeb
goes on to quote Craig and Bedell of accusing the BGA of "never letting the
facts get in the way of a good story." In this story, ABC and the BGA did a job
on Charles Roberts, slumlord, and his associates, accusing them of "making money
as their buildings burn and tenants die" (20/20 program). In Channel 2's
analysis, they showed that Roberts didn't own most of the buildings that he was
accused of destroying, and that he had sold most of them before the fires
occurred. To sum it up, the prosecuting
