Introduction: The Case of Donald Trump
Here we are, already far into the war declared by Wall Street and the City of London against Russia and China, with President Obama marching us step-by-step to early nuclear conflagration. The population which should be on its feet, demanding survival, not just for itself but for the entire human race, by insisting on Obama’s impeachment, is, instead, distracted—restive, agitated, knowing something is deeply wrong, but distracted. The heirs of the great Washington, Hamilton, John Quincy Adams, Lincoln, and Franklin Roosevelt must create and shape a new great Presidency right now if they are to survive, let alone experience their own actual humanity.
The national debate, however, does not concern the imminence of war and how to prevent it; rather, we are enticed to be preoccupied with the likes of Donald Trump. We are bombarded with police shootings, chaos, the disintegration of our immediate environment. This is not accidental.
By focusing on the methods and history of those who create this controlled and manufactured environment,— namely, the national security gendarmerie in the Federal Bureau of Investigation (FBI) and related agencies, and their public opinion propagandists,—we could find the keys to defeating the British Empire itself.
This is a short introduction, to what will be a longer article in the EIR next week, about the historical methods of popular subversion used by the FBI against the American population.
The Satanic Roy Cohn
We begin with the case of Donald Trump. He is, as Lyndon LaRouche points out, a product of J. Edgar Hoover’s New York circles, a coterie which included mobbed-up businessmen like Lewis Rosenstiel, along with Cardinal Spellman of the New York archdiocese, and various Wall Street establishment and media figures, all presided over by Hoover’s main New York man, the satanic Roy M. Cohn. Cohn was Trump’s lawyer and best friend throughout most of Trump’s formative years—his mentor, according to Trump.
Those who know their history, know that Roy Cohn was the legal assassin deployed by J. Edgar Hoover and Joseph McCarthy during the notorious manufactured “Red Scare” of the 1950s, which destroyed the lives of numerous innocent public servants and others, while instilling fear and cowardice in the post-war U.S. population.
When McCarthy was finally discredited in the Army-McCarthy hearings or 1954, Cohn left Washington for New York City, where he became the favorite lawyer and facilitator for New York-New Jersey organized crime, defrauding his clients, bribing judges, and corrupting and blackmailing much of what was New York celebrity, journalistic, and high-society culture in the 1960s through the 1980s. Cohn threw exclusive sex and drug parties at Studio 54, Le Club, and other “hot” night spots. Trump claims that he and Cohn met at Le Club.
At the same time, Cohn was the lawyer and a personal confidant of New York’s Cardinal Spellman, himself an FBI informant and J. Edgar Hoover crony. Roy Cohn did all of this while being protected by Hoover’s FBI and other Wall Street-controlled secret government entities, who gladly accepted the dirt he provided them about those he seduced, in return for allowing his gross and satanic criminality. He was only disbarred on his deathbed, as he was dying of AIDS.
Donald Trump’s early fortune was inherited from his father Fred, who was a developer of military housing during the war years, and middle-class housing in Queens and Brooklyn after World War II. Like his son, Fred had numerous dealings with New York’s organized crime families, according to accounts by Wayne Barrett, who has written extensively about the Trumps.
Donald Trump’s mentor, Roy Cohn, represented Anthony “Fat Tony” Salerno, the boss of the Genovese organized crime family, and, it is alleged, Trump met with Salerno at Cohn’s Manhattan offices. Salerno’s company, S&A Concrete, was used by Trump in constructing several of his New York City buildings. According to numerous published reports, Trump’s initial project in Atlantic City, the casino which became Trump Plaza, was built on land which Trump bought at twice its market value from Salvatore Testa, a made man in the Philadelphia mafia and son of Philip “Chicken Man” Testa, who briefly headed the Philly mob after Angelo Bruno’s 1980 killing. The casino was built in part by construction companies owned by the Philly mob. 1“Trump’s father was mob connected in his real estate dealings; and Trump’s own mob connections have been the subject of numerous articles and a book as a result of the pioneering journalism of Wayne Barrett, followed by a multitude of others. In Barrett’s book, “Lost Tycoon”, Norton, New York 1993, Harry Hurt III provides a good summary of the previous work of others as well as further developing this story through his own sources. A recent short on this topic was produced by David Marcus in the July 28th Federalist, relying largely on Barrett. Our knowledge of the Trump, Cohn relationship largely derives from Cohn’s involvement in litigation concerning LaRouche’s 1980s associates and sources developed at that time, including some of Cohn’s ex-lovers.”
Trump also had a close association with Kenneth Shapiro, a banker for the Nicky Scarfo who became head of the Philly mob after Philip Testa was blown up. Recently, Trump has worked to distance himself from Felix Sater, a fraudster with mafia ties who worked with Trump on numerous occasions. Sater’s ties to American and Russian mobsters have been widely reported, as well as his work as a government provocateur and informant.
Trump’s campaign manager, until his recent “resignation,” was Roger Stone, described by Trump as a longtime close friend and associate. Stone is a long-standing Republican Party dirty-tricks operative who cut his teeth with Richard Nixon’s CREEP. According to Stone, he has Richard Nixon’s picture tattooed on his back.
Nixon’s entire career, of course, was closely associated with, and protected by, J. Edgar Hoover and the FBI. Stone’s most recent publicized antics, other than involvement in his own sex scandal, involved his work for the Bush family in securing George W. Bush’s presidency, by orchestrating a riot which stopped the 2000 Florida vote recount. He also played a central role in the sex scandal which ended the political career of Eliot Spitzer, who was reviled and set up because he had devoted his public career to taking down Wall Street.
Everything I have written here about Trump is readily and publicly available. Yet, millions of Americans say they are seriously considering this man for the presidency; all the so-called Republican candidates are silent about this perverse story,—a silence which itself should disqualify them all from the Presidency. And again, this reality-TV escapade proceeds while in actual reality, Barack Obama takes step after step on the path to war.
Next week, we will document the British Empire origins and Twentieth Century backdrop to this operation.
