Late in life, he would brag that he had been the only man in history friendly with both Vladimir Lenin and Ronald Reagan. Throughout his life he continued personal and business dealings with the Soviet Union, despite the Cold War.
In his 1983 book RED CARPET, author Joseph Finder was the first to reveal that Armand Hammer worked for Soviet intelligence (the NKVD and its successive incarnations) and laundered money for the Soviet Union and the Comintern.
Edward Jay Epstein published a book critical of Hammer after his death titled
“Dossier: The Secret History of Armand Hammer.” Among his claims:
*James Jesus Angleton, head of counterintelligence for the Central Intelligence Agency, said that the CIA has received evidence from the British secret service that Hammer laundered money for the Soviets.
*Lenin issued orders to “make note of Armand Hammer and in every way help him on my behalf if he applies”.
*J. Edgar Hoover wrote "a rotten bunch" on the front of FBI file "61-280 — Armand Hammer, Internal Security — Russia."
*Hammer may have initiated human rights abuses in Occidental Petroleum's operations in South America.
*Hammer split apart the pages of the Da Vinci Codex (now the Codex Leicester), which he purchased in 1980 and renamed the "Codex Hammer."

24. Jerzy Popiełuszko, a priest murdered by secret police
From Wikipedia: He was a staunch anti-communist, and in his sermons, interwove spiritual exhortations with political messages, criticizing the Communist system and motivating people to protest.
A car accident was set up to kill Jerzy Popiełuszko on October 13, 1984, but he escaped it. The alternative plan was to kidnap him, and that was carried out on October 19, 1984. The priest was beaten and murdered by three Security Police officers. Then, his body was dumped into the Vistula Water Reservoir near Włocławek from where it was recovered on October 30, 1984. News of the political murder caused an uproar throughout Poland, and the murderers and one of their superiors were convicted of the crime. More than 250,000 people, including Lech Wałęsa, attended his funeral on November 3, 1984. Despite the murder and its repercussions, the Communist regime remained in power until 1989. Popiełuszko's murderers - Captain Grzegorz Piotrowski, Leszek Pękala, Waldemar Chmielewski and Colonel Adam Pietruszka (responsible for giving them the order to kill) - were jailed but released later as part of an amnesty.
26. GAZETA WYBORCZA
From Wikipedia: is Poland's second-largest daily newspaper (after the tabloid Fakt). It is considered to be one of the most influential and opinion-forming newspapers in Poland. Gazeta Wyborcza has been criticized for distorted coverage of controversial issues such as post-communist vetting, Polish-Jewish relations and the Polish minority in Lithuania. It has also received criticism for using its influence to whitewash former communists, particularly General Jaruzelski. After the fall of communism, the paper was criticized for taking part in an "intensive propaganda campaign" and particularly for rigorously trying to revamp Jaruzelski's image.
25. Piotr Bartoszcze, founder and first leader of the SOLIDARITY OF PEASANTS, murdered by communist secret police in February 1984.
During Martial Law arrested together with all Solidarity leaders; after release continued his activities; found beaten and strangled to death. The 1984 “investigation” produced no suspects. Case was re-opened in 1995 – with the same results.

27. Andrzej Suda
From Wikicompany.org: The most dramatic was my experience with the FBI. The FBI wasn't interested to investigate his case at all – instead they informed the Polish intelligence network about his actions. You can understand why he felt lucky to be alive today! He asked the highest law enforcement agency in America to help him in this situation – to investigate the FBI betrayal and to bring guilty to justice. This highest law enforcement agency is not widely known. It is called the Office of the Inspector General of the U.S. Department of Justice (shortly O.I.G.). O.I.G. was created to investigate crimes committed by agents of FBI, CIA, DEA and other federal agencies. With the help of the O.I.G. he was able to collect hard evidence of FBI treason. What do you think happened next? Well, the O.I.G. investigator was transferred from San Diego to San Francisco and stopped his investigation! In 1999 he was interviewed by a journalist Jeff Nyquist and admitted, "There is a problem at the Justice Department in Washington. Things were being short-circuited at the top. For some strange reasons, spies connected to Eastern European Mafia organizations were being allowed to operate freely on American soil"
28. Russian famine of 1921
From Wikipedia: The Russian famine of 1921, also known as Povolzhye famine, which began in the early spring of that year, and lasted through 1922, was a severe famine that occurred in Bolshevik Russia. The famine, which killed an estimated 5 million, affected mostly the Volga-Ural region. Hunger was so severe that it was doubtful that seed-grain would be sown rather than eaten. At one point, relief agencies had to give grain to the railroad staff to get their supplies moved. Peasants often had to resort to eating weeds, food surrogates and even cannibalism trying to save seeds for planting in the fall.
The Bolsheviks believed that peasants were actively trying to undermine the war effort. The Black Book of Communism states that Lenin ordered the seizure of the food peasants had grown for their own subsistence and their seed grain in retaliation for this "sabotage," leading to widespread peasant revolts. In 1920, Lenin had ordered increased emphasis on food requisitioning from the peasantry. Aid from outside Russia was rejected. The American Relief Administration, which Herbert Hoover had formed to help the starvation of World War I, had offered assistance to Lenin in 1919, on condition that they have full say over the Russian railway network and hand out food impartially to all. Lenin refused this as interference in Russian internal affairs.
29. Jacob Schiff
From Wikipedia: Jacob Henry Schiff, born Jakob Heinrich Schiff (January 10, 1847 – September 25, 1920) was a Jewish German-born New York City banker and philanthropist, who helped finance, among many other things, the Japanese military efforts against Tsarist Russia in the Russo-Japanese War. From his base on Wall Street, he was the foremost Jewish leader from 1880 to 1920 in what later became known as the "Schiff era," grappling with all major Jewish issues and problems of the day, including the plight of Russian Jews under the tsar, American and international antisemitism, care of needy Jewish immigrants, and the rise of Zionism. He also became the director of many important corporations, including the National City Bank of New York, Equitable Life Assurance Society, Wells Fargo & Company, and the Union Pacific Railroad. In many of his interests he was associated with E.H. Harriman.
30. Warburg family
From Wikipedia: Felix and Paul Warburg emigrated to the United States. Felix Warburg married Frieda Schiff, daughter of Jacob H. Schiff, a a banker and philanthropist. His house in New York City is now the Jewish Museum. His brother Paul married Nina Loeb, daughter of Solomon Loeb. He is seen as the "father" of the U.S. Federal Reserve System.
31. Paul Warburg
From Wikipedia: Although a major factor in German finance, after frequent business trips to New York, Warburg settled there in 1902 as a partner in Kuhn, Loeb & Company where the influential Jacob Schiff, his wife's brother-in-law, was senior partner. Warburg remained a partner in the family firm in Hamburg, but he became a naturalized American citizen in 1911. He was a member of Temple Emanu-El in New York City. Paul Warburg became known as a persuasive advocate of central banking in America, in 1907 publishing the pamphlets "Defects and Needs of Our Banking System" and "A Plan for A Modified Central Bank." His efforts were successful in 1913 with the founding of the Federal Reserve System. He was appointed a member of the first Federal Reserve Board by President Woodrow Wilson, serving until 1918. He became a director of the Council on Foreign Relations at its founding in 1921, remaining on the board until his death. From 1921 to 1926 Warburg was a member of the advisory council of Federal Reserve Board, serving as president of the advisory council in 1924-26. He was also a trustee of the Institute of Economics, founded in 1922; when it was merged into the Brookings Institution in 1927, he became a trustee of the latter, serving until his death.
32. Felix Moritz Warburg
From Wikipedia: He was a grandson of Moses Marcus Warburg, one of the founders of the bank, M. M. Warburg (in 1798). Felix Warburg was a partner in Kuhn, Loeb & Co.. He is known as a leading advocate of a Federal Reserve System for the United States. He married Frieda Schiff, daughter of Jacob H. Schiff and Therese Loeb Schiff, in 1895.
33. Max Warburg
From Wikipedia: was a German-born American banker and from 1910 until 1938, director of M.M.Warburg & CO in Hamburg, Germany. As head of that firm, he advised Kaiser Wilhelm II prior to World War I. His brother Paul Warburg was the chief architect of Federal Reserve Board in the United States.
34. From the book "NONE DARE CALL IT CONSPIRACY" by Garry Allen:
In the Bolshevik Revolution we have some of the world’s richest and most powerful men financing a movement which claims its very existence is based on the concept of stripping of their wealth men like the Rothschilds, Rockefellers, Schiffs, Warburgs, Morgans, Harrimans, and Milners. But obviously these men have no fear of international Communism. It is only logical to assume that if they financed it and do not fear it, it must be because they control it. Can there be any other explanation that makes sense? Remember that for over 150 years it has been standard operating procedure of the Rothschild’s and their allies to control both sides of every conflict. You must have an “enemy” if you are going to collect from the King.

35. Pacification of the coal mine "Wujek" on 16 December 1981
When Martial Law was announced, brave workers of this coal mine started a lock-in strike. The Army responded with extreme violence. They attacked defenseless people with tanks and machine guns. In accordance with "official" news "only" 9 workers were killed and 21 wounded.

Here is the “sanitized” English version:
36. Jan Samsonowicz, one of the Solidarity leaders in Gdansk shipyard
Was (together with Piotr Dyk) an initiator and a member of a secret counterintelligence group within the Solidarity movement. His investigation produced evidence of a communist mole at the top of Solidarity hierarchy and his group found out that the western financial aid for the Solidarity was handled by.....the Polish secret police! Alexander Parvus comes to mind! Samsonowicz was found hanged from the gate of Gdansk shipyard. The "investigation" ruled this a "suicide."

37. Grzegorz Przemyk, son of the Solidarity activist, beaten to death by police
Barbara Sadowska was a popular artist and poet. She was also an active dissident.
On the 3rd of May 1983 she was beaten by police. Apparently beating “didn't do the trick,” therefore on 12th of May 1983 police arrested her teenage son, took him to the station and beat him to death. Actually he was taken by ambulance and after emergency surgery died in the hospital of internal trauma. The uproar in Poland was so big that the communists needed to open an “investigation.” To cover up, they even needed help of the Interior Ministry. The medic from the ambulance and the doctor were found “guilty of negligence.” They spent some time in prison. The medic admitted later being forced to “confess.” After 1989, the case was re-opened. There was a lot of “theater” going on but the final result is exactly like in other cases – not a single criminal was punished! Barbara Sadowska died 3 years after her son (at age 46).

38. Stanislaw Pyjas, philosophy student, disident, murdered by secret police
Stanislaw Pyjas and his friend Leslaw Maleszka were active members of student opposition against the communist regime. Pyjas was beaten to death. The "official" investigation found the cause of death to be a "fall from the staircase." There were rumors that the local boxer (and a thug) Marian Weclewicz bragged about beating Pyjas on request of a secret police officer. The suspected officer died of a "heart attack" and Weclewicz was murdered. Stanislaw Pietraszka, the last person to see Pyjas alive and claiming to remember the face of his attacker – soon died, too. In 1991 the case was re-opened. The only person punished was Prof. Zdzislaw Marek who performed the autopsy on Pyjas and falsified its findings. No, no – he wasn't charged by the court – he was fired from the Medical Academy for causing embarrassment! The key to the whole story lies in hands of Leslaw Maleszka. Now we know he was a paid police informant from the very beginning, therefore the "handler" for Pyjas. What is he doing now? He is a successful journalist of ..........(surprise, surprise!) Gazeta Wyborcza.
http://pl.wikipedia.org/wiki/Stanis%C5%82aw_Pyjas (only in Polish)
From English version
In late June 2008, private television TVN presented a documentary Trzech kumpli (Three mates), which presented the story of Wildstein, Pyjas, and Lesław Maleszka (aka Ketman and Return). All three of them were friends in college, studied together and were active in anticommunist opposition. However, Maleszka, who afterwards worked for Gazeta Wyborcza, was a secret informer of Służba Bezpieczeństwa. Maleszka was a highly praised agent, whose reports on students in Kraków, in which he did not hesitate to describe the intimate lives of his closest friends, were called excellent by his secret service bosses. According to Roman Graczyk, a journalist and Maleszka’s friend from university, Pyjas had to die, because he might have suspected Maleszka of collaboration. The secret services did not want to lose such a valuable agent and an unknown officer ordered the assassination.
39. Just a quote:
"The truth is, there is no Islamic army or terrorist group called Al Qaida. And any informed intelligence officer knows this. But there is a propaganda campaign to make the public believe in the presence of an identified entity representing the 'devil' only in order to drive the TV watcher to accept a unified international leadership for a war against terrorism. The country behind this propaganda is the US . . ." Former British Foreign Secretary Robin Cook
40. Just a quote: "Today's international terrorism is a phenomenon that combines the use of terror by state and non-state political structures as a means to attain their political objectives through people's intimidation, psychological and social destabilization, the elimination of resistance from power organizations and the creation of appropriate conditions for the manipulation of the countries' policies and the behavior of people."
Leonid Ivashov, former Joint Chief of Staff of the Russian Armed Forces, general-colonel.
41. Igor Gouzenko
From Wikipedia: was a cipher clerk for the Soviet Embassy to Canada in Ottawa, Ontario. He defected on September 5, 1945, with 109 documents on Soviet espionage activities in the West. This forced Prime Minister Mackenzie King to call a Royal Commission to investigate espionage in Canada.
Gouzenko exposed Joseph Stalin's efforts to steal nuclear secrets, and the then-unknown technique of planting sleeper agents. The "Gouzenko Affair" is often credited as a triggering event of the Cold War. In 1945, hearing that he and his family were to be sent home to the Soviet Union and dissatisfied with the quality of life and the politics of his homeland, he decided to defect. Gouzenko walked out of the embassy door carrying with him a briefcase with Soviet code books and deciphering materials. He initially went to the Royal Canadian Mounted Police, but the RCMP officers on duty refused to believe his story. He then went to the Ottawa Journal newspaper, but the paper's night editor was not interested, and suggested he go to the Department of Justice – however nobody was on duty at night when he arrived. Terrified that the Soviets had discovered his duplicity, he went back to his apartment and hid his family in the apartment across the hall for the night. Gouzenko, hidden by a neighbor, watched through the keyhole as a group of Soviet agents broke into his apartment. They began searching through his belongings, and only left when confronted by Ottawa police.
The next day Gouzenko was able to find contacts in the RCMP who were willing to examine the evidence he had removed from the Soviet embassy. Gouzenko was transported by the RCMP to the secret "Camp X", now abandoned, but located in present-day Oshawa and comfortably distant from Ottawa. Camp X had been used during World War II as a training station for Allied undercover personnel. It has been alleged that, though the RCMP expressed interest in Gouzenko, Prime Minister of Canada William Lyon Mackenzie King initially wanted nothing to do with him. Even with Gouzenko in hiding and under RCMP protection, King reportedly pushed for a diplomatic solution to avoid upsetting the Soviet Union, still a wartime ally and ostensible friend. Documents reveal that King, then 70 and weary from six years of war leadership, was aghast when Norman Robertson, his Undersecretary for External Affairs, and his assistant, H. H. Wrong, informed him on the morning of September 6, 1945, that a "terrible thing" had happened. Gouzenko and his wife Svetlana, they told him, had appeared at the office of Justice Minister Louis St. Laurent with documents unmasking Soviet perfidy on Canadian soil. "It was like a bomb on top of everything else," King wrote. Robertson told the Prime Minister that Gouzenko was threatening suicide, but King was adamant that his government not get involved, even if Gouzenko was apprehended by Soviet authorities. Robertson ignored the Prime Minister's wishes and authorized granting asylum to Gouzenko and his family, on the basis that their lives were in danger. Gouzenko's defection "ushered in the modern era of Canadian security intelligence." The evidence provided by Gouzenko led to the arrest of 39 suspects; a total of 18 were eventually convicted of a variety of offenses. Among those convicted were Fred Rose, the only Communist Member of Parliament in the Canadian House of Commons; Sam Carr, the Communist Party's national organizer; and scientist Raymond Boyer. A Royal Commission of Inquiry to investigate espionage, headed by Justice Robert Taschereau and Justice Roy Kellock, was conducted into the Gouzenko Affair and his evidence of a Soviet spy ring in Canada. It also alerted other countries around the world, such as the United States and the United Kingdom, that Soviet agents had almost certainly infiltrated their nations as well.
Gouzenko provided many vital leads which assisted greatly with ongoing espionage investigations in Britain and North America. His testimony is believed to have been vital in the successful prosecution of Klaus Fuchs, the German communist physicist who emigrated to Britain and who later stole atomic secrets for the Soviets. Fuchs spent some time at the Chalk River Laboratories, northwest of Ottawa, where atomic research had been underway since the early 1940s. His information also likely helped in the investigation of Julius and Ethel Rosenberg in the U.S. Gouzenko, being a cipher clerk by profession, likely also assisted with the Venona investigation, which probed Soviet codes and which eventually led to the discovery of vital Soviet spies such as Donald Maclean, Guy Burgess, Kim Philby, Anthony Blunt, and John Cairncross (the so-called Cambridge Five), as well as Alan Nunn May. Gouzenko and his family were given another identity by the Canadian government out of fear of Soviet reprisals. Gouzenko, as assigned by the Canadian government, lived the rest of his life under the assumed name of George Brown. Little is known about his life afterwards, but it is understood that he and his wife settled down to a middle class existence under an assumed name in the Toronto suburb of Clarkson. They raised eight children together. Gouzenko died of a heart attack in 1982 at Mississauga, Canada; his grave was not initially marked. Svetlana died in September 2001 and was buried next to him. It was only in 2002 that the family put up a headstone.
42. Warsaw Stock Exchange
From Wikipedia: In the years 1991–2000, the stock exchange was located in the building which during the previous, and then recent, communist years had been the seat of the Central Committee of the ruling Polish Communist Party. This can be considered an interesting reflection on the rapid transition of Poland from a communist to a market economy.
43. The Greenbaum Speech
Herein is the lecture by D.C. Hammond, originally entitled "Hypnosis in MPD: Ritual Abuse," but now usually known as the "Greenbaum Speech," delivered at the Fourth Annual Eastern Regional Conference on Abuse and Multiple Personality, Thursday June 25, 1992, at the Radisson Plaza Hotel, Mark Center, Alexandria, Virginia.
Sponsored by the Center for Abuse Recovery & Empowerment, The Psychiatric Institute of Washington, D.C. Both a tape and a transcript were at one time available from Audio Transcripts of Alexandria, Virginia (800-338-2111). Tapes and transcripts of other sessions from the conference are still being sold but -- understandably -- not this one. The transcript below was made from a privately made tape of the original lecture.
44. Project MKULTRA
From Wikipedia: Project MK-ULTRA, or MK-ULTRA, was the code name for a covert, illegal CIA human research program, run by the Office of Scientific Intelligence. This official U.S. government program began in the early 1950s, continuing at least through the late 1960s, and it used U.S. and Canadian citizens as its test subjects.
Editor's note: It is my understanding that MK-ULTRA is ongoing today.
The published evidence indicates that Project MKULTRA involved the use of many methodologies to manipulate individual mental states and alter brain functions, including the surreptitious administration of drugs and other chemicals, sensory deprivation, isolation, and verbal and sexual abuse.
Project MKULTRA was first brought to wide public attention in 1975 by the U.S. Congress, through investigations by the Church Committee, and by a presidential commission known as the Rockefeller Commission. Investigative efforts were hampered by the fact that CIA Director Richard Helms ordered all MK-ULTRA files destroyed in 1973; the Church Committee and Rockefeller Commission investigations relied on the sworn testimony of direct participants and on the relatively small number of documents that survived Helms' destruction order. Although the CIA insists that MK-ULTRA-type experiments have been abandoned, 14-year CIA veteran Victor Marchetti has stated in various interviews that the CIA routinely conducts disinformation campaigns and that CIA mind control research continued. In a 1977 interview, Marchetti specifically called the CIA claim that MK-ULTRA was abandoned a "cover story."
A considerable amount of credible circumstantial evidence suggests that Theodore Kaczynski, also known as the Unabomber, participated in CIA-sponsored MK-ULTRA experiments conducted at Harvard University from the fall of 1959 through the spring of 1962. During World War II, Henry Murray, the lead researcher in the Harvard experiments, served with the Office of Strategic Services (OSS), which was a forerunner of the CIA. Murray applied for a grant funded by the United States Navy, and his Harvard stress experiments strongly resembled those run by the OSS. Beginning at the age of sixteen, Kaczynski participated along with twenty-one other undergraduate students in the Harvard experiments, which have been described as "disturbing" and "ethically indefensible."
Lawrence Teeter, attorney for convicted assassin Sirhan Sirhan, believed Sirhan was under the influence of hypnosis when he fired his weapon at Robert F. Kennedy in 1968. Teeter linked the CIA's MKULTRA program to mind control techniques that he claimed were used to control Sirhan.
Editor's note: Senator Robert Kennedy was shot from the rear. Sirhan Sirhan was in front of the senator. See http://www.truedemocracy.net/td2_3/73_dyk.html
