Shennan Skolnick, Chicago legal researcher who charges that docu·
ments in the National Archives will prove Lee Harvey Oswald didn't
act alon;, in killing Kennedy.
A black former Secret Service agent was railroaded to
jail because he tried to tell the Warren Commission some
uncomfortable truths about the assassination of President
The agent was Abraham Bold·
en, now on parole after serving
39 months in prison on apparent·
Jy trumped-up charges involving
the selling of information to
conn terfeiters.
Bolden had wanted to tell the
Warren ·Commission in 1964 that
he knew of a plot to kill the
P1·esident not in Dallas on Nov.
22, 1963, but in Chicago during
a football game on Nov. 2 of
that year.
legal researcher whose investiga-
tions of eorruption already have
j,,d to the of two
judgeH, sued the National
Archives i'l Washington, charg·
'ing it with withholding docu·
ments to the ChicagD plot
on JFK's life.
Excert for ever-so-brief men·
tion, the story has not appeared
in the daily press.
Skolnick. a cripple confined to
a wheelchair. says he has evi·
dence leading to a Chicago plot
Kennedy which goes un·
mentioned in the nDw-battered
WaiT<'n Report
Legal whiz Skolnick is trying •tG
get Lyndon Johnson to testify
about certain misgivings the ex-
president harbors about the War-
ren Report, hoping ·to throw more
light on the possibility of Oswald
having one or accomplices.
·He charges that Kennedy was
supposed to be assassinated in
Chicago •bu t the plDt was shifted
to Dallas when the President
cancelled his trip to Illinois be·
cause of a cold. ' ·
The plot is linked not Dnly
to Lee Harvey Oswald but a man
named Thomas Arthur Vallee,
now 37 whereabouts unknown,
described as closely resembling
Several other private research·
ers into the Kennedy assassination
have uncovered evidence of a
"second Oswald" seen here and
there in the U.S. while the real
Oswald was known to be in Mex-
Skolnick says he has uncover·
ed a mass of evidence, leading
not only to certainty Df a Chi·
cago plot but a confusing mass
Df leads pointing to apparent
complicity D£ the FBI, the Se·
cret Service, Chicago judges anrl
the man who in 1969 led the
raid ;that killed Black Panther
leaders Fred Hampton and Mark
Clark in Chicago.
On Nov. 2, 1963, Thomas Vallee
was stopped and charged with a
minor traffic violation one hour
before JFK's proposed arrival in
Chicago (he never showed up).
The FBI immediately entered
the case and in its report linked
Vallee with an aborted assassina·
tion plot. Three FBI documents
pertaining to this now are lock·
ed in the National Archives.
The documents reveal that the
witness against Vallee was David
Groth, who at the time was not
referred to as a policeman, nor
was he the man who arrested
Last December, this same
Groth, now a sergeant in the
lllinois State's Attorney's Police,
led the assanlt on Panther Hamp-
ton's apartment, where a small
arsenal was uncovered.
That raid led not only to Ramp·
ton's and Clark's death ·bY gun-

Edward Hanrahan, then a .U.S.
Attorney, helped l send Bolden up

segments Df Chicago Police
Department whe a federal grand

The raid was arganized •by
State's Attorney , Edward Hanra·
han, who the actions of
his raiders right up to the m<>·
ment the grand jhry slapped them
In 1964, Hanrahan was U.S.
Attorney for Northern Illinois.
It was to Hanrahan's office
that Agent Bolden was escorted
on May 18, 1964, the day after
Bolden tried to talk with the
Chief Counsel of the Warren
Commission, J. Lee Rankin. BDld·
Ordered back to ChicagD <>n a
pretext, Bolden was told by
Hanrahan that he, Bolden. was
under indictment for selling evi·
dence to counterfeiters.
In his first trial, BDlden got a
hung jury; but in his second
trial, two counterfeiters who were
police informers were "found''
who testified- against him. BDlden
got a six-year sentence.
But in their own trial. the
counterfeiters admitted they lied
against Bolden.
When Skolnick's charges broke
some weeks ago, Bolden - now
out on parole - was called in
by his probation advisor and told
to keep his IUDnth shut or go
back to prison.
Skolnick says that Bolden knew
about the Chicago plot on JFK,
and that one of the hidden doc-
uments prDves the Secret Service
had Thomas Vallee under sur-
veillance before Nov. 2, 1963,
knew that he was linked to Lee
Harvey Oswald and at least two
other men.
Skolnick also says that Vallee's
car, bearing New York license
plate 311 ORF, was "linked or
registered .to Lee Harvey Os-
Attempts by a Chicago TV sta-
tion tD trace the ·plates turned
up an FBI "freeze'' on this vital
information. Others who h a v e
tried to learn a'bont these license
plates have had sudden threaten·
ing visits from the FBI, accord-
ing to Skolnick.
Bolden has cropped up in 1he
JFK murder enigma ·before. News
;tories shortly after the assassin·
ation carried his charges that
certain Secret Service men in
charge Df Kennedy's safety were
drunk in Chicago.
Black Panther Fred Hampton
was his death in 1969 lloked to
JFK's six years earlier?
But what he evidently wanted
to .tell the Warren Commission
was that some agents were
racists who hated the President
because of his strong stand in
favor of civil rights.
The fact that the same con-
troversial office holders were in·
valved in the official gagging of
Agent Bolden, and the raid which
six years later took the lives Df
two Black Panther leaders, sug-
gests to Skolnick that strong
racism in high places is in the
Former Secre-t Service Agent Ab-
J:aham Bolden has been officially
silenced in his attempts to tell
what he knows about the plot
to kill JFK.
The full story is not yet out,
and may never be. Many other
attempts to pry SDme of the
truth out of government Dffi·
cials and the National Archives
have proved futile.
But with even Lyndon Johnson
now saying that the Warren Com-
mission didn't do a complete joh
investigating his predecessor'>
death, maybe the truth about the
assassinat,ion will finally leak out
a little at a tirr:e.
T'the news stor y on the other side of thl.s sheet r efers to the case of Skolni ck vs. National Archives
No . 70 C 790, filed in U.S. Dist rict Court, Northern Dist rict of Illinois, Eastern
Div., (Chicago), Clerk's office of which i s on 20th floor, Federal Building, 219 So. Dearborn, Chicago.
The story is very accurat e about the suit with the minor exception that Daniel Gr oth is called
David._] · Information brought out in Court in case No. 70 C 790:
(1) Another Secr et Service agent , Harvey Henderson, had a part in planning the assassination of
President Kennedy. Hender son was quietly sacked from the Secret Service about the time of the
assassination, Nov. 22, 1963 .
(2) A document attached to the suit, shows that the day after the assassination, Lee Harvey ·
Oswald, the alleged sole as sas si n according to the Warren Report , made a collect call from the
Dallas Jail to what appears to be hi s boss or contact , John David Hurt, of Raleigh, North Ca r olina,
who had been a special agent in the U. S. Army Counter Intelligence Corps. Oswald's mother has
been saying publicly that her s on was with the government as being, she thought , with Naval
lntellilrence .
(3) Daniel Groth (who helped assassinate)llinois Black Panther Leader Fred Hampton), the suit
points out , is not a policeman as the news media tells the public, but is some kind of a federal opera-
tive higher than U. S. Secret Service, i. e . , C. I. A. The suit sets forth the circumstances supported
by attached documentation, showing Groth, not acting as a policeman, helped abort the Chicago plot
against Kennedy (because something went wrong) , so that the assassins could escape and do their
thing in Dall as three weeks l at er .
(4) Accor ding t o one National Archives document attached to the suit, the then executive editor of
the Chicago Daily News (Nov., 1963) , knew about the plot to kill President Kennedy in Chicago, three
weeks before Dallas , involving Oswald i n Chicago and accomplices. The Chicago Daily News did not
run a story about the arrest of Vallee (rel at ed to the Chicago plot) , Kennedy was on the
cemetery. When the Skolni ck suit was filed in Chicago , April 6, 1970, the Chicago newspapers ,
uptight about the document Skolnick attached to the suit implicating the Chicago Daily News, blocked
out the ·news of the suit . The story r an, however , worldwide , including on the Associated Press
national wire. Worldwi de , that is , but not in Chicagonewspapers . WCFL Radio had an in-depth story.
(5) The released Nati onal Archives documents , attached to the suit , mentioning Oswald and his
Chicago possible look ali ke, Vallee , both in Chicago three weeks befor e Dallas, are regarded as one
of the greatest blunder s in the history of the Archives. Supposedly, all mention of the Chicago plot
against Kennedy was to have been suppressed for 75 years. Skolnick insisted in court that the Archives
should be compelled to now release the rest of tl:!e Chicago documents since part of those docu-
ments somehow slipped out of the Archives and into his possession.
(6) Chicago Federal District Judge J . Sam Perry (who is responsible for the false imprisonment
· of Abraham Bolden) is
according t o other undi sputed court -filed documents/ owned" by the Chicago
crime cartel . Two pages of the suppressed Blakey Report are now part of the federal court record
(Case #16615 , U.S. Court of Appeals, 7th Circuit, Chicago, clerk's office, 27th floor, Federal Bldg.).
(7) The National Archives suit contends t hat the · .. Warren Report is void (it says there was no
plot), since ther e now i s shown documented links to a plot or conspiracy to assassinate Kennedy in .
Chicago, three weeks befor e Dallas .
(8) Strange as it may seem to the uninformed, news coverage after the filing of the suit and
subsequent court event s in the suit , was inter fered with by a barrage of letters and phone calls from
one or more Warren Report critics , threatening lawsuits and other reprisals against various people
in the news media, if they conti nue to publicize Skolnick's suit. Some of the Warren Report critics
assert, oddly enough, that Skolni ck had no right to ask the court to hold the Warren Report void. ·
(As long as the Warren Report is not invalidated by court on;ier , they can go on writing books and
articles criticizing and lint -picking it .) Some absolutely mind -blowing data has been compiled about
the Warren Report critics a s a res +ult of the National Archives suit. By a highly detailed factual
analysis , Skolnick and fellow researcher s can show that some of the Warren Report critics are, of
all things , part of a "clean up" squad, purporting to lint -pick the Warren Report , but, in fact, stifling
any outside effort s t o get news coverage of ,-: _,; situations like the Chicago plot against Kennedy. It can
be shown, for example, t hat one or more Warren Report book-writing critics stifled news coverage of
another suit aQ'ainst the National Archives (a suit involving the Kennedy x-rays).
(9) Skolnick has been waging battle in the higher courts to remove the federal court judge,
Hubert L. Will , from hearing t he case . Reasons: (a) according to the book banned in the U.S.,
Judge Will is ar has been a pill ar of the C.I.A. [Who's Who in the C. I.A., by Dr. Julius Mader];
(b) fellow Judge J . Sam Perry, st ands t o be pr osecuted for falsel y imprisoning Bolden if Skolnick is
given a chance t o bring out the Bolden matter in the case. To get the Archives documents into the
court record befor e they had a chance to cover their tracks , Skolnick si de - stepped an administrative
technicality. On that loop-hole, Judge Will put the suit out of court, 1/ 7/ 71 , but with permission for
Skolnick to re-file the suit later when the technicality is corrected .

Prepared by Sherman H. Skolni ck, chairman, .. and the staff, of the Citizen's Committee
to Clean Up the Courts, a Chicago-headquartered research group investigating corruption and
political assassination .
Like s. crooked boxe r , Gerald Ford is apparently being paid to take a falJ , paving the way
for Nelson Rockefelle r to be president without a n el ettion. He r e are the fact s :
Geral d Ford was originally named Leslie Lynch King, Jr. --his family were some of the
richest people in Wyoming, with bus iness interestSj_n wool, lumber, banking, and real estate,
operating out of Rive rton, Wyoming. Connected to the Leslie King family is Pasco , Inc. , like-
wise headquartered in Riverton. Now operating gas and oil fiel ds , they were forme rly Pan
American Sulphur and were very much in the espionage business in Latin America . A director
was Leon Jaworski , recently special Wat e r gate prosecutor.
In April , 1975, Pasco was offere d 220 million dollars cash for their Vlyoming prope rties
by a major corporation, l ater identified as Rockefelle r ' s Standard Oil of Indi a na. St a ndard
later boosted their offer to 225 million cash . Nelson Rockefeller, wanting to be president with-
out an el ection, turned loose the mas::; media on Nixon . A 1974 Senate subcommittee report .
"Disclosure of Corporate Owne r ship" , shows the Rockefellers are the prinsipal owne rs of all
three news networks and othe r major hunks of the communications and publis hing indus tries .
Tri cky Dick was not framed but cornered witl1 sele ctive t r uth, as an attack on the office of the
presidzncy. Double agent s, like James McCord, working for Rocky and the CI A, helped bring
about Nixon's downfall .
Next, Gerald Ford, alias Leslie Lynch King, Jr . , is very vulnerable and he la1ows it. As
outlined in the book "The Washington Pay -off", by Robert N. Winter-Be r ger, F ord was a crooked
Congr essma n . Now, after eleve n years of s ile nce, the Rockefeller-·owned mass media are
beginning to focus on Ford as being responsible for covering up the cons piracy involved in
the assassination of Preside nt Kennedy . Ford i s one of the visible, surviving members of the
infamous Warren Commiss ion. Texas l awyer Leon Jaworski played a key role in the
Commission and in vvatergate, both times wi th Gerald Ford. Like on the Warr e n Commi ssion,
Jaworski and Ford blocked an inves tigation into the murder of several material witne sses.
On June 22, 1972, five days after the alleged Wat e rgat e break -in, was a meeting with
Nixon, Mitchell , Hal deman, Erlichman, Cols on , a nd others in the Wl1ite House gang . They
formulated an illegal plan t o block an investigation into their crimes. Now rattling a round is
apparent proof that at that secret meeting was Gerald Ford. (vVashington ne ws lette r ,
5/l /75 . ) So, Ford apparently i s as guilty of obstructing j us tice as Nixon & Company. That
helps expl ain why Ford has been busy covering up further inquiries into Watergate- -such as,
the <l..uickie pardon to Nixon, to head off revealing that many mate rial Watergate witnesses were
murdered , including White House secretary Beve rly Kaye, working on the Nixon tapes; Nixon' s
close frie nd Murray Chotiner whose widow b egan t alking behind the s cenes just before tl1e
pa rdon; and Watergate bagwoman, Dorothy Hunt , killed in a sabotaged plane crash in Chicago,
along with t en other ·vvat e r gators . Ford now maintains Nixon' s San Clemente st aff with his own
Vv hite House funds .Jawors ki, to help the cover up, resigned, cutting s hort the vvate rga t e probe .
The visible operators of Pasco, Inc., are Rockefeller' s people and the mob . One of the
directors has bee n Randolph H. Guthrie, of the l aw firm of Mudge, Rose, Guthrie & Al exander,
muni cipal bond counsel for Rockefeller and El .Paso Natural Gas Co . attor neys (two months after
MHchell took office, the Jus tice De pt.

  . Guthrie ' s l aw partner h as been for mer
U. S. Attorney General John Mitchell. Another Pasco direct or has been Leslie T. \ivel sb , of
Barrington, Illinois . Other directors are ilichard D. Colburn and De rald H. Rutte nbe rg. Wel s h,
Colburn, Guthrie, and Rutte nberg are al s o direct ors of the mob -connect ed STP Corporation.
Ruttcnbexghas also been director of Canal-Randolph Corporation, a Chicago -based crime and
politics ope ration .

A research and investigation group based in Chicago challenges NiXon's use of national
security as an alibi in the Watergate case . Legal researcher Shennan Skolnick, head of the
watchdog group, says most of our atomic and defense secrets were given to Russian in the early
19' dOs by high - ranking members of our own government. Skolnick says Nixon helped s uppress
evidence related to the Alger Hiss case and that of Julius and Ethel Rosenberg. Nixon knows full
well that secret t estimony , in executive session , before a Congressional committee, proved
that our country's most vital secrets were knowingly given to high - level Soviet KGB agents by top-
ranking individuals in the Executive department of our government, and protected by Nixon and
the Rockefellers for more than 25 years, Skolnick contends.
Persons as sociated with Skolnick' s Citizen's Committee to Clean Up the Courts have
examined secret Congressional documents suppressed for 25 years which prove these points,
according to Skolnick's Chief Investigator , Alex J. Bottos. The secret Congressional papers show
members of the FBI were absolutely forbidden to arrest known Soviet KGB agents as they were
l eaving the United States with atomic secr et s and atomic s amples in their possession , according
to Bottos. " 'v-Vhy wasn't )/int!;rbop Lockefeller arrested for his participation in t hese events, as
Nixon bas kncwn for more than 25 years?" Skolnick asks.
Skolnick says Nixon cannot cl1.im that he didn't know that Mr. and Mrs . E. Howard Hunt
were blackmailing Nixon for these and other equally damaging documents. According to Bottos,
Nixon while vice president was the '.iVhite House action officer for the Bay of Pigs episode and
worked with Hunt who headed up the Cuban invasion plan. Bottos was a private recruiter
for Hunt in for the ill-fated attack .
Nixon i s not telling the truth about the vVatergate hush money unless he the millions
of dollars of securiti es given to E . Howard Hunt and carried by his wife on the plane, S!-:olnick says.
Those valuables became an issue in a reC'eirt' Chicago stri ke Force- prosecution in the federal ---
district court in Chi cago . (U.S. vs . Joseph Sarelli et al., 73 CR 429. ) The Strike Force was
prosec uting a stolen secur:!.ties and airplc:ne piracy gang identified by Eottos who infiltrat ed the
crime   operation to crack the case. As shown by undisputed federal ccc•r:: records, filed
in the Sarelli case, Bottos was the government's star witness until Bottos drlred mention the same
gang was involved in the robbery of !:he pl ane on which Mrs . Hunt died in December, 1972, in
Accordino- to Bottos' sworn statement in federal court, one of the top people in the gang was
Bennie Smith wBb/furned loose by the Strike Force to avoid opening up the i,:!at ergate angl e. Bottos
said that while pretending to be the "fence" for the stol en securities gang, he a•1d an associate
were shown some of the valuables a:1d documents t aken from Mrs. Hunt's belongings after the
crash. Refe rence to Mrs. Hunt's valuables is cont ained in a previously suppressed FJ.>I report put
intr the Sarelli case record.
Skol ni.ck contends the crash of United Air Lines flight 553 near Midway Airport, Olicago, was
sabotage intended to kill Dorothy Hunt and 11 other 'Nat ergate -connected persons on board. In a
special hearing of National Transportation Safety Board, in June, 1973, Skolnick and members
of his staff detailed the sabotage from the government ' s own records . He l:is group had
''liberated" t'-:e enti:::-e government Midway crash file. Ignoring their own highl y records,
pi ctures, and exhibits showing sabotage, the NTSB l at er said it was merely pilot err0r, he said.
A que8tion posed by Skolnick and Bottos is: Did Nixon think the National Security required
the death and silencing of Mrs . Hun and others connected with her? They conte nd the national
security i ssue :, posed by Nixon, in the Vvatergate and Ellsberg cases, i s a bad j oke on the people .
Skolni ck's group has been active in researching politi cal corruption and political assassina-
tion for over 11 years. Among the i r credits: half the members of Illinois' highest court were
swept off the bench in a scandal opened up by Skol nick' s group; on Skolnick' s charges, the Chief
Deputy Clerk of the U.S. Distri ct Court in Chicago sent enced to 10 years in fede ral pri son; on
charges originally made by Skolnick' s group, Otto Kerner, former Illinoi s governor and now a
federal appeal s judge, was given a J-year jail sentence, convicted of bribery and perjury ,and a
higher court uphel d the conviction of Kerner.
To di scuss the foregoing, Skolnick and Bottos will be availabl e for a limited number of radio
and television talk shows and audience participation programs. For up to date details on the
work, call: Hotline News , (312) 731 -lJOO, a 3- l /2 minut e r ecorded message, on 24

CI A MIND POISONS by Sherman H. Skolnick . [ Ect_itor' s note7 Skolnick u_p a
Chicago -based research and investigating group deahng w1th corrupt10n and assassmatwn.)
One of the most deep, dark secrets of the CIA i s a proj ect with the code name MK ULTRA.
From 1952 to 1963, CIA scientists developed frightening drugs that produced loss of memory, called
a mnesia, that dis -oriented people, that caused sui cides , and in other ways neutralized or disturbed
a person's brain or personality. Operation Artichoke, which went on to about 1958, determined
some of the applications and effects of these behavior-influencing drugs: public officials , here and
abroad, reacting to being secretly drugged, could be neJIJitral ized when they made fools of them-
selves publicly (some do that on their own also). Unfr i endly eyewitnesses or double agents could be
made to forget or to kill themselves . A related project was MK Delta, to be used for overseas
espionage .
The Rockefeller Commission on CIA Activities committ ed a mammoth fraud on the American
people . Vvithout giving the name of the vast operation, MK Ultra, or telling its deadly applications,
they cover ed it up with a few paragraphs about the t esting of LSD. The Rockefeller Report to the
Presedent, on page 228, fraudulently said the CIA drug testing on unsuspecting subjects was termin-
a ted in 1963 . In fact, to conceal the ope ration, the CI A changed its name to MK Search, and con-
linue d until 1973.
The details of this whol e mess are known to Sen . Edward Kennedy who heads up a Senate sub -
committee poking into the matter. They know that the MK Search Proj ect was used to cover up CIA
complici ty in vari ous political assassinations, indluding that of President Kennedy, and Dr . Martin
Luther King, Jr. Following the Dallas tragedy, seve ral hundred material witnesses mysterious l y ·
died, one by one, in weird accidents or supposedl y suicides. Dr. King's personal physici an suppos -
edly killed himself. CIA mind poisons were used against several key anti -war activists . To open
up the chemic al mind murder factory would now r equire a review of almost one thousand victims :
assassination .. eyewitnesses, public officials that died mysterious ly like A'dlai Stevenson (Sr. ) ,
peace movement leaders , and others .
A related CIA project had the code name MK Naomi, s tarting about 1956 . The ir purpose,
origina lly, was to study chemical weapons that might be used by a foreign power. After a while, the
MK Naomi Proj ect, like other CIA schemes, became a reckless, out of contr ol program. Under the
absolute control and direction of Dr. Nathan Gordon, they developed methods to dis pense contami -
nants - - -exotic chemicals they could add to the air or to neutralize or demobilize entire
popul ations of an area . In recent years the project, still going in 1975, focussed on chemical war-
fare directed against so-called domestic rebels, such as those that rioted after the CI A and FBI
covered up assassination of Dr . King in 1968, or ghetto or civil rights uprisings. Some of the
scientists joked among themselves that they were working on a form of "mercy killing".
Remembering what happened t o · \ his two brothers, Ted Kennedy, although knowing about this
mess, seems to want to l eave the CI A al one .
The MK Ultra under its various names was a large national program, having ominous
implications and uses for de aling with domestic problems --such as quelling dissidents and wiping out
material witnesses following a domestic pol itical assassination. In its formative stages, the project
was based mostl y inn Los Angeles and was headed by Dr. Sidney Gottlieb, head of the CI A's Special
Ope rations Research Divtsion. He l ater was director of CIA Technical Services, a fancy t erm for
the i r mind murder factory. Much of the so -called "scientific" work was at various laboratories and
Universities in California.
Knowledgeable researchers are r eviewing the circumstances of the drop-out or neutralizing of
specific persons in the anti -war movement as well as r econsidering the demise of key assassination
witnesses; to match up previousl y unexplained happenings with what has now j umped out of the CI A's
Pandora ' s Box. Also now known i s the fact that in its later stages the MK Search Project was inter-
woven with activities of some of the Watergators .
Not every sci entist connected to these     agreed with their purposes. Three dissenters
within the projects were severel y disciplined.
Based on such happenings as what grew out of MK Ultra, knowl e dgeable persons claim the CIA
has merged with the Soviet Secret Police, the KGB. Certainly, known Soviet methods were use d
h er e .

The N.T .S.D •• ln their final repon, tried to cove.r ·up several things Skol blck' s group

The FB[ i mmediately entered
the case and in its report linked
Vall ee with an aborted as'3ssina-

mcnt the grand j ury slapped them
In 196·1. Hanrahan was U.S.
Att or ne,1· for Northern Ill inois.
It w:.s to Hanmhan's offi ce
that Agent Bolden was escor ted
on May 18, 1964, t he day after
Bolden tried to talk wit h the
Chid Counsel ot the Warren
Commission, J . Lee Rankin. Bold·
en was thwarted by h is Secret
Ser\•ice oosses.
Ordered back to Chicago on a
pretext. Bolden was told b.' ·
Han rahan that he, Bolden. was
under indictment for .selli ng e\' i·
dencc to counterfeiters.
In his lirst trial, Bolden got a
hung jury; but i n his second
tri al. two counterfeiters who were
police informers were hfound··
who testified against him. Bolden
got a si x·year sentence.
But in thei r o wn trial. the
counterfeiters admitted they lied
n,t!ainst Bolden.
When Skolnick's charge.. broke
so me weeks ago, Bolden - now
out on parole - was called in
by his probation ad visor and told
to keep his mouth shut or go
to prison.
Skolnick says that Bolden knew
about the Chicago p lot o 11 JFK,
and that one of .the hidden d oc·
umen ts proves l'l>e Secret Service
had Thomas Vallee under s ur-
veillance before Nov. 2, 1963,
knew that he was linked to Lee
Harvey Oswal d and at least two
other men.
Skolnick al so says that Val lee's
car, bearing New Yor k li cense
plate 311 ORF, was " linked ol'
to Lee Harvey Os·
Attempts by a Chicago TV sta·
tion to trace the plates turned
up an FBI "freeze" on this vital
information. Others who ·hav e
t ried t o learn a'bout these license
plates have ·hnd sudden thr eaten-
ing visits from the FBI, accord·
ing to Skolnick.
Bolden has cropped up ln the
JFK murder enigma b ef ore. News
;tories shor Uy after the assassin·
alion carried hi.s charges that
certain Secret Service men in
charge or Kennedy's safety were
drunk in Chicago.
Black Panther Fred Hampton
was his death in 1969 linked to
JFK's :-oi:x years earlier?
But what he evidently wanted
to tell the Warren Commission
was that some agents were
racists who hated the P resident
because o! his strong stand in
f avor of civil rights.
The fact that the same con-
troversial offi ce holders were in-
volved in the official gagging o(
Agent Bolden. and the raid which
six years later took the lives of
t wo Black Panther leaders, sug-
gest s to that strong

which was fully loaded; and attached clip contained 32 bullets . Thi s gun was
described as specifically dcsigneu for military or police work". This seventh
arrest for an armed offense carried both st ate and federal charges. But De
Freeze t ell s the Judge that he had" registered " the gun with the police under
his own name and that the gun was actuall y intended fo r a police officer fr iend.
Despite the charge, DeFreeze r emained at l arge . With the help of the secret
CCS unit , he fled Californi a in violat ion of his probation (a bench war rant was
i ssued for hi s arrest) , t o the stat e of New Jersey.
5/ 6/ 69: Newark, New Jersey. DeFreeze and another per son, )X>Sing as
Black Panthers, were accused of assaulting an employee of a Jewish synagogue
with a shotgun , demanding $5,000, and i nformation and aid in a scheme to kid -
nap a well -known Newark Jewish r ights leader . Upon completion of the
kidnapping, DeFreeze' s plan was t o submit a ransom not e s upposedl y from the
Black Panther Party. He escaped Newark authorities , crossed s tate lines in
violation of federal law, and surfaced i n Cle{eland, Ohio , October. 1969.
10/ 11/ 69: Cl eveland, Ohio. DeFreeze appeared on the roof of the
Cleveland Trust ComjJany, branch Bank. with a . . revolver , . 25 caliber
pist ol , an eight inch dagger, a tool kit. and , in violation of federal l aw, a
hand grenade. This was a period of great tension and hyst eria in Cleveland
as a result of the Ahmed Evans affair where so-called Black militants were
i nvolved in an ambush and shoot-out with police . DeFreeze was released
nevertheless on a very low bail, $5,000, and the charges were l ate r dropped.
At the time, he was wanted on a capital charge in New Jersey and a probation
violat i on in Califor nia. De Freeze was NOT held in Oeveland even though Sgt.
John McMahon of the Cleveland subversive squad was monitoring the DeFreeze
case .
DeFreeze fled Cl eveland to Californi a, where he was again arrested.
11 / 25/69: Los Angeles . A252519. DeFreeze exchanged gun shots wi th
a bank guard and was wounded . The gun used in the shoot -out was a . 32
caliber Beretta automatic pistol . This gun, A63944, was still another gun
l eft over from the earlier 200 gun robbery, 1967. He obviously ha d
been allowed t o keep a number of guns from thi s cache . On 12/3/ 69, he
was ordered imprisoned at the Vacavi lle, Califon1ia behavior modificat ion
In 1970, it was at the Vacavillt faci lity that DeFreezc was recruited by
CIA operative Col ston Westbrook to lead the Be.havlor lvloclificaUon experi -

brook, De Freeze mouthed off publicly u militant ami -white cultural national -

Younger knew of DeFreeze's role i n CCS and. i n fact , DeFr<:eze subpoenaed
Younger to t est ify in his behalf in 1969 . Mer becoming California Attorney
General, Younger maintained close contact with CCS .
5. The HEARST F AMJL Y as a t arget : Few p<:ople remember that it was
the Hearst newspaper chain, now much smaller, that led t he attac.k on the Rocke-
fellers in the 1940s. For example, the Hearswwned..os Angeles Examiner was
one of the few papers in the U. S. to JX>i nt out , ·9/ 12/ 48. that the atomi c secr ets
were not stolen but given away . Thi s was in reference to the secret testimony of
former FBI agent Lawrence Kerley, before a Congressi onal Committee. Kerley's
testimony showed the Rockefellers wer e active in seei ng to it that the at omic
secret s were given to the Soviets in the early 1940s before the U.S. had com-
pleted its lirst atomic bomb. Kerley was head of a 200-man FBI team tracking
top level Soviet secret police agents in the U. S. He was ordered by the Stat e
Department NaT t o arrest them, even though they wer e about to leave the U.S.
with atomic sampl es and atomi c secrets. The implications: that the Alger Hiss
case was cut short , thanks t o chief investigator Richard M. Nixon, and to sup-
ply scapegoats, Julius and Ethel Rosenberg were framed and sent t o the electri c
chair in 1953. Angry, Kerley and 30 other F BI agents r esigned. He went on to
become a writer for the Hearst -owned New York Joumal-American . The RockE: -
fellers , principal fotce behind the start of the CIA, launched financial and odter
attacks on the Jourual -.American and other Hearst paper s , many then folili"g up .
In 1973, Hearst Corp.through th:eir .Avon Books division, brought out one
of the first attacks on the CIA, "The Gl ass House Tapes". There has been a
raging battl e between the CI A' s super -elitist s and gangster -dominated "dirty
tricks department . HeartH' s problem i s that since about the 191 Os, his hus i -
nes s relied upon gangsters .

The victims of this bizarre and lnon - publicized travesty of justice during
our Bi - Centennial year by Court Judge Alfred J . Pivarnik of
Valparaiso, Indiana are not notorious muggers, rapists or murderers but
rather, respected and well knowry fight ers of of f i c i al corruption including
Pas tor James Voegtlin of t he Fairhaven Baptist Church and Academy; Elmer
Jacobsen, Director of the Northwest Indiana Crime Commission (who prev-
iously served wit h distinction 4s an FBI agent for 17 years); Alex Bottos ,
Executive Director of the il ar As sn. and Inves t i gat or for the
Citizens Committee to Clean up dhe Courts who (after years of undercove r
activity) burst int o National prominance during \vATERGATE when the FBI
falsely imprisoned him to preveqt testimony concerning t he OIL & r'lAFIA
involvement in t he air- crash death of Dor othy Hunt, wife of WATERGATOR
E. Hunt; and Sherman Skolnick, Chairman of the Citizens Committee
and his aide, David G. Hoffman, whose record of destroying corrupt Judges
During the period of 1974-75 , Dottos, Pastor Voegtlin, and Skol nick hi t
the lecture plat f orms, church pddi ums, and airways alerting t he publ ic
to certain apparantl y tainted decisions, impropri et i es, and
alleged corrupt j udicial acts of Judge Alfred Pivarnik together wit h
ranking politiical figures and corrupt contractors claiming that t hey
had defrauded the Feder al Government and the c itizens of Indiana out of
millions of dol l ars through fraudulent contracts approved and made to be
legal and binding by Pivarnik as Judge . Especia l ly highlighted by the
court critics was his part i n awardi ng fraudulent contracts for a
CONSTRUCTION CO. whose three owners as of June 1976 have been convicted
in both Federal and State court s for bribery , perjury, and conspiracy
along Vlith Indiana HUD Director Ben Lesni ak (2) and are now being inves -
tigated by the Peder al Deposit Insurance Corp. for possible involvement
in causing the bankruptcy of the /\fo!ERICAN TRUST AND SAVINGS BANK of
Milwaukee as part ann parce l of the public swindle. (2/\)
But all was not so back i n July , 1975 when Pi varnik slapped each
of them into !ail without a trial for sentences ranging from 30 to 90
days each. The Indiana Board of Accounts had not yet released their audit
condemning the East Chicago Par k Doard for issueing the contract; the
Attorney General Had not filed his brief condemning the disregard for law;
and, t he Indiana Court of Appeals had not yet r e leased its decision
whi ch on March 10, 1976 overturned Pivarnik' s rul ing and judgement And
lashed out at the Judge for approving a contract \·1i1lch " .. . f ai led to
meet even the minimal requirements of laN. " Dack then, in July of 1975,
Bot tos and Skolnick had legal l y subpoened Richard Lesniak (brother of
convi cted HUD Director Ben Lesniak) and his Attorney, Saul I . Ruman to
testify about their parts and those of Judge Pivarnik in t his and other
deals . Without hearing , Pivarnik quickly and secretly "killed" the legal
subpoenas and ordered his victims to j ail despite the fact that none were
in t he court or on County propert y or in any way informed by anyone t hat
they had even been charged with anything. ( It later turned out , the
Unlike many other States, Indiana affords its Ci tizens even greater
protect ion from ill-advised or out r i ght corrupt acts of Judges who use
"Contempt " orders too freely, and has, (in addition t o t he 14th Amendment

and hearings to ass ur e "due process" prior t o imprisonment as wel l as
det ai led definitions of wha t constitutes a "Contempt " of any kind . The
Court record shows that Judge Pivarnik not only failed to abide by any
of t he procedures of the Statute, but that the acts he complained of do
not meet any of the definitions of "Contempt " . Showing utter di sregard
