Psycho-Analysis and Mental Health Propaganda

Editor The News:

Our American people, to­day, are being deluged with a cleverly planned and skill­fully executed barrage of propaganda, designed to pro­mote the adoption of so-called mental health legislation by national, state and local government, under the broad and disarmingly-innocent title of the “mental health program.”

For the past three years, these programs have been rapidly “mushrooming” in most parts of the country un­der the guidance of unknown and untrained alien psychiatrists who have been quick to seize upon the innate kind­liness, hospitality, and altruism of our Christian American people, and to offer a variety of programs for “mental health” and “collectivist” schemes.

Most of the suave, high-pressure speakers who pre­sent these programs are saturated with a heavy alien ac­cent and it doesn’t require too much analysis of the beautifully-packaged, deceptively-named “mental health” pro­grams, already become law, or now pending before our national and state law-making bodies, to understand that the ultimate, intended goal of these proposed legislative acts are [sic] a vicious attempt to des­troy the self-reliance of the American citizen — and that it is an ominous threat to de­prive him of his freedom and liberty.

Become Easy Prey

After a careful reading of this propaganda now being huckstered around by speakers and organizers who can hardly enunciate English, and after listening to their oratory filled with pretense of con­cern for those who they claim are “mentally ill,” anyone with average intelligence should become convinced that most of these Mental Health “proposals” are po1itica1 schemes to transform any citizen who may refuse to conform to any political objective being promoted by the nation, state or community in which he lives, into a faceless — spineless — characterless non-entity, devoid of will power or ambition — easy prey to those who may be in a po­sition to exert power over him.
 

Psychiatric subversion - silencing dissent

Psychiatric subversion – silencing dissent

The modus operandi of si­lencing the “nonconformist,” — for example, any person who speaks out, or writes in hostile language against “One World Super Government” — sponsors, within the United Nations organization, is to rate him as being “mentally ill” and should he committed to some “national insane asy­lum.”

Trend Is Revealed

There is stressed the “usual” propaganda of “great bene­fits” of the Mental Health programs, emphasizing the ef­ficiency of treatment and the speed by which the victims are returned to the commun­ity in large numbers, after treatment.

Any informed person knows well that, once a person is committed to an in­sane institution, — private, or political influence can keep him there till “doomsday.”

The proponents of these Mental Health programs and associations, are, in most cases, those who are identified with ‘One World Super Government,’ [-a–uit] within the United Nations organization), — the UNESCO “World Health Organization,” and the “World Federation for Mental Health.”

These organizations, whose objectives appear to be the ultimate destruction of the sovereignty of this Republic, are operating in all parts of the United States. Their activities reveal an increasing trend toward Marxist subversion and of the possibility of violence as evidenced by Section 104(b) of the Alaska Men­tal Health (House Resolution 6376) which says:

“Any health, welfare, or po­lice officer who has reason to believe that an individual is mentally ill … is likely to in­jure himself or others, if not immediately restrained, (vio­lence) may take the individual into custody, — apply to a designated hospital for admis­sion, and transport him there­to.”

Objectives Are Disguised

Obviously, without any written authorization except the “written application of an interested party,” for example, some welfare worker, an American citizen can thus be silenced and deprived of his liberty.

This is indeed a most in­credible departure from rec­ognized police procedure in effect today.

Aside from establishing an ideal precedent for shipping off to an insane asylum, any unwanted member of the fam­ily, what better scheme could there be for the silencing of those numerous patriotic persons who, for years have been persistently warning our citizens of the Communistic and Socialistic trends which they despise within our government …

What better program could there be, especially for satis­fying the wrath of Sherman Adams and his White House “Palace Guard,” against trou­blesome dissenters and critics of the Eisenhower administra­tion?

Most certainly, there is no one who would ever oppose the establishment of suitable hospitals and the very best of care for those who are genuinely “mentally ill,” or insane, — BUT, the gesture of phi­lanthropy indicated by the numerous Mental Health pro­grams, are [sic], in most cases, an atrocious fraud upon the Citizens of this Republic, because they [d]eceive the uninformed, — the indifferent, — and the naive, — in carefully disguising and concealing their true ob­jectives, and also their failure to reveal the complexion and identity of their enthusiastic proponents and sponsors.

Extremely Impatient

The rash of Mental Health programs which have flooded the country with increasing vigor during the past few years, carry with them a distinctive odor of the “Super One World Government” and “World Federation of Mental Health” strategists, who have swarmed into this country from Europe during the past 20 years — received here with open arms under the compli­mentary label of being “politi­cal refugees.”

They now infest the United Nations Organization, — spread­ing their political poison where they have been able to carry on their activities and evil work unchecked, con­stantly working for the destruction of the established or­der of Christian life within these United States which has afforded them decent living, and asylum from persecution abroad.

These high priests of psy­chiatry, psychology, and men­tal health and their education­ist stooges, — not satisfied with having, all but completely, destroyed the individual’s will to defend his God-given rights, as guaranteed under our con­stitution, have now become extremely impatient to attain their concealed objectives.

Accordingly, they have turned their attention to plaguing the country in the field of Mental Health as an effective means to accomplish the “coup de grâce,” namely the ultimate perversion of our citizens and the subversion of our Christian American ideals.

I have before me a mimeographed copy complete — of a text-book purported to be used by the students at the Lenin University in Moscow. The pages of this book are most frightening to read. It is titled “The Communist Manual of Psycho-Political Warfare.”

On the first pages there ap­pears a speech delivered by Commissar Lavrenti Beria (formerly head of Soviet Sec­ret Police) welcoming a group of American students at the University. Portions of Beria’s speech are as follows:

“You must dominate, as res­pected men, the fields of psy­chiatry and psychology. You must dominate the hospitals and universities. You must carry forward the myth that ONLY an European doctor is competent in the field of in­sanity, and thus excuse amongst you, the high incidence of foreign birth and training …”

“With the institutions for the insane which you have in your country, in those prisons which can hold a million per­sons, where they can be held without civil rights or any hope of freedom –upon these people can be practiced shock and surgery in such a manner that never again will they draw a sane breath.”

“Use the courts, — use the judges, — use the Constitution of your country, — its medical societies, — and its laws — to further your ends … And when you have succeeded you can effect your own legisla­tion at will; you can … make the capitalist, himself, finance the quiet conquest — the quiet revolution in your country.”

The above paragraph[s] ap­pears to confirm what has so often been told us by Soviet leaders, “We shall take over the United States without firing a shot.”

Must Develop Solution

When the deceptive eloquence, and processes of men­tal trickery practiced by most of the proponents of mental health legislation, have been well exposed — the Congress should take a good look be­neath the surface in order to make a thorough investiga­tion of the peculiar personali­ties behind, and supporting the numerous Mental Health programs.

Then, and not until then, will this atrocious fraud upon our citizens be revealed in all of its stark reality and evil aims.

Instead of establishing, here and there, the national insane asylums contemplated by these alien mental health “ex­perts” for the isolation of patriotic Americans who re­fuse to conform to the Communist and Socialist trends in government, and who refuse to remain silent in the pres­ence of treason in our Su­preme Court, a real solution, in keeping with American tradition, must certainly be developed for the tender care and understanding of those who are genuinely ill mentally.

This must be administered by those of American parent­age and Christian background – of proper training and recognized ability in the field of psychiatry and psy­chology.

Every effort should be made to rid this nation of this alien swarm of phoney psychiatrists and psychologists, — many of whom serve Marxist fanatics by classifying, as mental cases, those Americans of patriotic stature who loudly and courageously oppose such un-American organizations inside the United Nations organization as UNESCO, One world super-government, and Communism with all its fronts.

Demand Investigation

It appears obvious that if laws could be re-written, mental health prisons created, and, if the majority of our voting citizens could be “brain-washed” into the belief that every non-conformist is a victim of “mental illness,” then those who conspire to destroy the sovereignty of the United States of America, might fin­ally succeed in the establish­ment of a “Super One-World Government” to succeed the United Nations Organization.

There would then be no need for concentration camps. Institutions for the “Mentally ill” would suffice.

Every Senator and Con­gressman should be deluged with letters demanding the immediate investigation of all menta1 health bills, now pending before the Congress.

Investigation should also be demanded to disclose the identity of those who are fi­nancing and promoting them. Many of these bills, like the Alaska Mental Health Bill (HR 6376), reek with medical fraud and possible treason.

Your demand should be made NOW, before it is too late.

"Now it's North America's Turn": Stan Jones

TRANSCRIPT:

[ Stan Jones: ]

I wish to spo– I wish to thank the sponsors for inviting me. I don’t often get invited.

[Laughter.]

This was an important debate. I had planned another closing message, but I feel compelled to say what I’m about to say.

And I risk sounding like a conspiracy theorist. But, it’s no longer a theory. What I’m about to say is fact. The secret organizations of the world power elite are no longer secret. They have planned and are now leading us into a one-world Communist world government.

The combining of national governments started with the European Union. That union started with trade agreements, then a common currency — the Euro — and now a European parliament that is feverishly passing laws that override the laws of the member nations.

A constiution was drafted, but rejected by a few of those nations. But, never mind. They implemented it anyway.

Now, it’s North America’s turn.

Building on the North American Free Trade Agreement, the NAFTA section of the Commerce Department is busy drafting laws and regulations for a North American Union. A union of Canada, America and Mexico.

The President has attended secret meetings and signed at least two agreements under the Security and Prosperity Partnership program. Information leaked out about the meetings, and now it is all in the open.

No treaty has been signed, so Congress has not become involved. However, money from our treasury is now being spent for this effort.

We will have a new currency. The Amero. And a new constitution modeled on the Soviet Union’s constitution. Our rights will not be inalienable, but they will be granted by government, who can also take them away.

One sign that this is our future is plans for the superhighways from southern Mexico, through America and into Canada. These plans are not secret any longer. Huge amounts of property will be taken in the name of Free Trade, peace and security.

You will have a national ID card with a radio frequency chip in it. That’s already law* in America and will be implemented by May 2000. This man voted for it. You will not be able to move about, freely.

This is terrorism of the most worst kind. Brought on you by our own government.

The strongest, freest nation in the history of mankind will be averaged into world communism.

Is that what you want?

Are we, the people, still in control of this nation?

We must begin to act like we are.

[ Moderator: ] Thank you. Stan Jones.

On that, Conway Burns, three minutes.

[ Burns: ] Sure glad you got such a rosy outlook on our future for our kids.

Simon Reisman (FTA negotiator) Suspected Communist Subversive: RCMP

Exclusive to
“No Snow in Moscow”

I have obtained an authentic copy of an old draft article by noted journalist Peter Worthington (born February 16, 1927) which contains names of suspected Communists in the federal government of Canada, as revealed in the RCMP’s now-quashed “Featherbed File”.

Prime Minister Pierre Elliott Trudeau squelched the Featherbed file with an Order-in-Council before he left office.  Trudeau himself was named in it as a suspected Communist subversive.

Many headlines could be drawn from this article. However, the one that comes to my mind first is that Sol Simon Reisman, who negotiated the Canada-US Free Trade Agreement (FTA), was a suspected Communist subversive. RCMP Featherbed investigators objected in vain to the renewal of Reisman’s high-level security clearance with the federal government of Canada.

In 1982, Trudeau ordered a royal commission convened:  the Royal Commission on the Economic Union and Development Prospects for Canada, known as the Macdonald Commission, and chaired by Trudeau’s friend and co-Bilderberger, Liberal Minister of Finance, Donald Stovel Macdonald.

The Macdonald Commission reported to Conservative Prime Minister Brian Mulroney in 1985.  It recommended free trade with the USA, and the conversion of Canada to a socialist welfare state.

Sol Simon Reisman, Free Trade negotiator, and RCMP suspected communist subversive

In May of 1986, Canadian and American negotiators began to work out a so-called trade deal, known as the Canada-US Free Trade Agreement (FTA).  The Canadian team was led by former deputy Minister of Finance Simon Reisman and the American side by Peter O. Murphy, former deputy United States trade representative in Geneva.

The FTA was deepened by the coming into force on January 1, 1994 of NAFTA, the North American Free Trade Agreement involving Canada, the USA and Mexico, and spanning the continent.

A number of informed and well placed observers have identified the NAFTA and the Security and Prosperity Partnership of North America (SPP) which followed it on the pretext of so-called terrorist attacks of September 2001, as the building blocks of a North American Union modeled on the European Union.  Today, The European Union is called both Marxist and “post-democratic” by some members of the press and intellectuals such as Professor John Fonte.

American Charlotte Iserbyt has warned of an impending North American Soviet Union, citing Mikhail Gorbachev who in 2002 called the European Union the “New European Soviet”.

American-Lithuanian Vilius Bražėnas viewed the series of trade deals on this continent in a similar light.  Bražėnas, a survivor of Communism, died on October 3, 2010 at the age of 97.  In his final passionate articles, he warned against the FTA, NAFTA, the FTAA and related trade-zone accords as tantamount to a multiple coup-d’état which in the end would impose a Communist regional union in North America.

Former Soviet dissident, Vladimir Bukovsky, who survived over a decade as a prisoner of Soviet mental hospitals, has warned on video and in print that the European Union is “the old Soviet model in western guise.”

Is anyone listening? I know I am.

U.S. Congressman Lawrence Patton McDonald, April 1 1935 to September 1, 1983

U.S. Congressman Lawrence Patton McDonald, April 1 1935 to September 1, 1983

In particular because U.S. Congressman Lawrence Patton McDonald in 1983 publicly warned America that the Marxist Council on Foreign Relations (CFR) and the Marxist Trilateral Commission and other related non-governmental entities were pushing for a Communist regional union through a series of apparently harmless trade deals.

In the words of Congressman McDonald himself on Crossfire, speaking of the CFR and related circles of elites:
 

“[T]heir objective is to try to bring about a gradual transition in our society -– a dissolving of sovereignty -– and a moving steadily to the left on the political spectrum.”

Canada’s FTA under Reisman certainly shifts Canada to the left while initiating the North American merger process.

Speaking specifically of the CFR during an interview with Larry McDonald on the television program Crossfire, McDonald said:

Council on Foreign Relations (CFR)[Y]ou are looking at a group (the CFR et als) that has worked to bring about a dissolution of national sovereignties on the road to world government.”

McDonald then quotes Arthur Schlesinger in the May-June 1947 issue of the Partisan Review:

”He [Schlesinger] said that the objective -– the secret policy of which we can’t tell the American public because they’re not sophisticated enough to see the value — is that through a steady result of erosion of NEW DEALS, we bring the American society steadily to the left, and through a signed concept of benign containment, we merge into the vital center of the socialist left.  Those were his words, not mine.”

Congressman McDonald continues further on replying to Crossfire host Pat Buchanan’s question whether the concept of the UN as the basis of a world government is not passé:

”Well, I think there are those who realize that moving straight from a prototype of the United Nations into world government perhaps is tactically impossible.  But phasing out increasingly national sovereignty into REGIONAL GOVERNMENT and phasing out sovereignties into international treaties ….” is the order of the day.

Today, with these warnings in mind, I invite you to read Peter Worthington’s old draft article exposing the chief negotiator of the FTA — which forms the initial basis of a clearly incoming REGIONAL UNION in North America — as someone the RCMP had warned the federal government not to trust because he likely was a Communist subversive.

However, the warnings fell on deaf ears, no doubt because the very Prime Minister’s Office the RCMP attempted to alert was itself already infested with one-world government types and suspected Communist subversives such as Soviet agent Lester B. Pearson, and Soviet mole Pierre Elliott Trudeau.

As a consequence, the very basis of Communist regional union in North America was negotiated by someone Canada’s national police and security apparatus long believed to be a Communist subversive.

Following is an exclusive typed transcript made by me from Worthington’s own typed, draft article, which he hand-edited.

For ease of reading, i am retyping the draft clean, without indicating Mr. Worthington’s deletions and insertions.  Images and captions have been added by me.

TRANSCRIPT — DRAFT — THE FEATHERBED FILE
by Peter Worthington (circa 1979)

(Scan of actual draft article is embedded below)

Operation Featherbed, a 14-year RCMP investigation into suspected subversives in high places, tried to warn the federal government it was being systematically infiltrated.

Trudeau, Pearson, Diefenbaker ignore RCMP warnings of high-level communist penetration of Canada

Trudeau, Pearson, Diefenbaker ignore RCMP warnings of high-level communist penetration of Canada

But the governments of John Diefenbaker, Lester Pearson, and Pierre Trudeau dismissed the Featherbed warnings as unsubstantiated Communist witch-hunting.

Besides, it would have been too embarrassing to repudiate people their governments had promoted to positions of influence.

Featherbed suspected that Communist infiltration of the federal bureaucracy had been set in train in 1923 with the co-option of O.D. Skelton, renowned as the “father of the civil service”.

The Featherbed analysts concluded that over the years, any promising “agents of influence” were talent-spotted at Communist study clubs in universities and brought into the civil service.

Inside, a shadowy network promoted “birds of a feather,” which gave the operation its code-name.

Robert Bryce (1984)

Robert Bryce (1984)

Among the more prominent (civil servant) subjects of Featherbed investigation were Robert Bryce, who rose from the Finance Ministry to the top post as cabinet secretary; his successor as deputy minister of finance, Sol Simon Reisman; and the husband-and-wife team of Bernard and Sylvia Ostry.1

Bernard Ostry became deputy minister of communications despite RCMP objections.  He was recently appoint(ed) at $65,000 a year as government special adviser on culture and communications based in Paris.

Sylvia Ostry, suspected by the RCMP as being a Communist subversive

Sylvia Ostry, former chief of Statistics Canada, the Economic Council of Canada, and deputy minister of consumer and corporate affairs, was appointed last fall to head the economics and statistics branch of the Organization of Economic Co-operation and Development in Paris.

Soviet mole Pierre Trudeau and Soviet espionage agent Lester Pearson

Operation Featherbed also plumbed the pasts of prime ministers Lester Pearson and Pierre Trudeau — Trudeau for his travels to Warsaw, Moscow, Peking and Havana, Pearson for allegedly having supplied information while a diplomat, that was transmitted to Moscow by a U.S. spy ring.

(Trudeau once called for his Featherbed file, “chuckled” as he read the report about his travels, associations and indiscretions, and sent it back to RCMP files).

Featherbed began as a search for suspected Communist subversives in the hierarchy of the civil service, branched out delving into university professors, lawyers, the media and trade unions.

It involved extensive surveillance, wiretapping and bugging under the code-name Operation Mercury (Featherbed was the analytical side).  The winnowed-down conclusions were summarized in a thick, black-edged book that held the names of 245 “professional” people as members of the Communist Party secret underground in Canada.

Not all the subjects of initial investigation found their way into the wrap-up black book.

Featherbed opened files on 87 CBC staffers as suspected subversives but there was no evidence of any operating network and only a handful were named in the final summation.

Tim Buck, head of the Communist Party in Canada

Tim Buck, head of the Communist Party in Canada

And Featherbed never learned the identity of “our agent in Canadian Press” that Communist Party of Canada chief Tim Buck frequently boasted about to his mistress, Bess Nascolo.  A bug in Nascolo’s house on Jones Ave., Toronto, picked up the drunken boasts after a shipment of Russian embassy vodka.

Featherbed believed that Lewis Rasminsky, former governor of the Bank of Canada, was only flirting with Communism when he attended party cell meetings in the Depression, as many disillusioned people did, and that he had rejected the ideology.

After a Featherbed investigation, the RCMP Security Service blocked the intended 1969 appointment of Grace Hartman to the government’s national commission on the status of women.  She became head of the Canadian Union of Public Employees.

Featherbed also conducted an investigation of Shirley Carr, vice-president of the Canadian Labor Congress.

What prompted Featherbed’s start in 1958 was an accusation by the U.S. Senate Internal Sub-Committee that Robert Bryce had been a member of a Communist closed party cell at Harvard university in 1935-37.

Herbert Norman, a known Communist, killed himself rather than expose 70 or more other Soviet agents

Herbert Norman, a known Communist, killed himself rather than expose 70 or more other Soviet agents

The subcommittee the previous year had cited Herbert Norman, then ambassador to Cairo, as a Communist.

Norman leaped to his death in Cairo a day after he told his doctor that if he were called to testify in a royal commission, he would to identify 60 to 70 Canadians as Communists.

Norman was a good friend of Lester Pearson and Robert Bryce and Pearson’s denunciation of U.S. interference in Canadian affairs caused the jittery RCMP brass to sever relations with the FBI.

When they were resumed, the FBI handed the information about the Silvermaster spy ring to the RCMP.  The ring’s courier, Elizabeth Bentley, told the FBI that Norman was a source of information sent to Moscow.

John Grierson, suspected but not charged with Soviet espionage (his secretary, Freida Linton, was charged)

John Grierson, suspected but not charged with Soviet espionage (his secretary, Freida Linton, was charged)

She also said that she had reported to her Soviet at spy handlers that Pearson also had been a source of information, along with John Grierson, head of the National Film Board, and his secretary, Freda Linton.

Featherbed was launched with the concept that the Silvermaster ring — which led to the indictments of Alger Hiss, assistant to the U.S. Secretary of State, and Harry Dexter White, a senior official in the U.S. Treasury Department — had its counterpart in Ottawa.

The initial investigation turned up 12 suspected equivalents in the Ottawa civil service hierarchy.  The files on the dozen were taken away by W. H. Kelly, director of RCMP Security and Intelligence, and never returned to Featherbed investigators.

After the U.S. subcommittees naming Bryce, he voluntarily went to RCMP headquarters to explain.

He admitted having attended Communist party study cells at Harvard and contended to his RCMP questioners that “you’re making too much of it.  I was only flirting with the Communists.”

Featherbed with the help of the FBI investigated his claim but concluded that Bryce had played a greater role in the study cells than he owned up to.

Harold "Kim" Philby, British Secret Service (MI6), in a 1955 file photo

Harold “Kim” Philby, British Secret Service (MI6), in a 1955 file photo

The delving also turned up a class parade photo taken at Trinity College, Cambridge, in the early 1930s. [Sitting] in the front row were Bryce, Lester Pearson, Herbert Norman and Kim Philby.

Philby went on to penetrate and sell out British Intelligence as a Soviet KGB master agent and now lives in Moscow.  The picture raised questions but answered none.

RCMP of Operation Mercury put Bryce under surveillance for many months but found nothing incriminating.

The Mercury Mounties wiretapped Simon Reisman for a long time and intercepted phone calls from a Russian embassy military attache identified as “A. Lobatchev.”

The RCMP Watching Service glued on to Reisman but never found him meeting with Lobatchev.  However, Featherbed found that Reisman’s wife had attended a Communist party training school in Port Hope, Ont., in 1954.

When Reisman’s top security clearance came up for renewal, the RCMP put in a report that it shouldn’t be renewed.  But the government’s security screening panel disagreed.

Bernard Ostry was the subject of RCMP surveillance under the code-name “Apache.”  That came after British Intelligence reported in 1962 that Ostry had attended a meeting of the Communist Party of Britain.

The Watching Service reported that Ostry had met Russian Intelligence Service agent Rem Krassilnikov at the Green Gables restaurant in Ottawa.

The RCMP took Bernard Ostry’s file to Trudeau but he dismissed their objections to his promotion to deputy minister of communications, the department that includes intercepting Soviet communications and bugging of embassies.

“I don’t want to hear any more about the Ostrys,” Trudeau said. “I would work with the devil if necessary.  Don’t bother me any more about the Ostrys.”

The RCMP had filed objections to Sylvia Ostry’s promotions on the basis of her Communist associations.  Trudeau dismissed that, too.

The RCMP could never reveal, even to Trudeau, the source for their objections to the Ostrys.

With Trudeau’s disinterest, Featherbed ground to a listless effort in 1972 and died completely by 1975.

A stroke of luck had uncovered secret Communist party memberships of several higher-ups in the trade union movement and in the civil service.

An RCMP “garbage patrol” picked up the membership list of secret section number seven of the United Jewish People’s Order in Montreal.  Section seven was the UJPO’s underground party apparatus for professional people.

The subject of one Featherbed file, Tom Kent, complained to Pearson that it was unfair.  Kent was a policy advisor to the prime minister and assistant deputy minister of immigration.*

Featherbed’s file on Kent outlined his connections with Communist front groups while he was managing editor of the Winnipeg Free Press.

Professor C. B. Macpherson: suspected by the RCMP of being a Communist subversive

Professor C. B. Macpherson: suspected by the RCMP of being a Communist subversive

Of the many university professors in Featherbed’s files, the most important was deemed to be Prof. C. B. MacPherson of University of Toronto.

The RCMP bugged MacPherson’s island cottage near Gananoque for the regular visits by two Russian Intelligence Service officers from the Ottawa embassy.

Kay MacPherson:: suspected by the RCMP of being a Communist subversive

Kay MacPherson:: suspected by the RCMP of being a Communist subversive

MacPherson’s wife, Kay, was leader of the Voice of Women movement that paraded for rejection of nuclear weapons by Canada.

Twenty years after Igor Gouzenko defected, Featherbed analysts got around to poring through the neglected kit-bags full of papers seized in the spy-ring roundup.

In the yellowing notebooks and memo pads, they found names and phone numbers of calls made in wartime.  Tracing the numbers back to wartime government phone books, they traced calls made to civil servants who by then (1965) had risen high in the bureaucracy.

They also found evidence implicating a wartime RCAF wing commander and an army colonel in the Soviet spy rings.  But by then, the trail had gotten too cold.  Ironically, the colonel was by then dealing with Soviet trade missions for the government.

Another trail too late to pick up was a curious coincidence that went unexplained.

That was the belated discovery that Col. Nicolai Zabotin’s spy ring had used an electronics shop in Rideau St., Ottawa, as a “live letter drop.”

A card was put in the shop window to signal that a letter was waiting to be picked up.  The card’s appearance usually coincided with the visit to the manager’s office at the rear by two middle-rank civil servants.

The pair rose high in the bureaucracy and retired with honors and indexed pensions.

Operation Featherbed folded for lack of government interest.

1 Trudeau himself was feared by the RCMP to be a Communist agent.  (Trudeau undoubtedly was one.  At Moscow in 1952, Trudeau led a Communist delegation organized by the Canadian Communist Party.  The Moscow meeting was an “economic summit” organized by Soviet intelligence.  See my exclusive English translations of a 7-part series on the summit, “I’m Back From Moscow,” penned by Trudeau for the leftist daily, Le Devoir.  Lester Pearson absolutely was a Soviet agent, denounced by defecting Soviet military intelligence, Elizabeth Bentley to the FBI.  However, Worthington soft-pedals the grave accusations of Elizabeth Bentley against Pearson in the McCarran hearings.  (In 2012, Worthington, still kicking and alive, soft-pedaled his own accusations against Communist Trudeau of the 1970s and 80s, thus bleaching Pierre’s reputation when Red offspring Justin was running for the “Liberal” leadership.  Police suspected Bernard and Sylvia Ostry, as well.  Now, grasp this, if you can.  According to Don Newman, in his autobiography, xxxxxx, Trudeau routinely held his federal Cabinet meetings at the private palatial home of none other than suspected Communists, Bernard and Sylvia Ostry, straddling the border between Hull, Quebec and Ontario.  Also at those meetings was private citizen and Canadian RIIA member, Paul Desmarais Senior of Power Corporation.  On the downtown Montreal business premises of Power Corporation in the 1960s, 1967 to be precise in this case, a “Secret Committee” of Reds posing as Liberals in the federal cabinet of Soviet Agent Lester Pearson, came up with a plan to create a “separatist” party.  Communist René Lévesque was instructed by them to organize and lead it.

The party;s name?  The Parti Québécois.  Its 1972 manifesto in French only, written to appease the extreme left members who swelled its ranks in 1968, flowing in from the Communist RIN party that had been disbanded, calls for a Communist independent state of Quebec.  (See Free download page for my exclusive English translation of the 1972 manifesto.)

We thus find a major multinational corporation embracing, hosting and harboring obvious Communist infiltrators of the Liberal Party of Canada, setting up plans for a Communist party and a Communist State of Quebec on Power Corporation premises.  Power Corporation is also a major presence at the Canadian branch of the Royal Institute of International Affairs (the RIIA in London, an international banker front for a secret society whose object still is the infiltration of national governments to subvert national sovereignty on the road to world government).

* I have come up with a good piece of evidence that Tom Kent was/is indeed a Communist subversive. In March 2007, the Caledon Institute published in pdf format a booklet authored by Kent entitled Federalism Renewed.  The section of it entitled “City Limits” declares the Provinces of Canada (Provincial Legislatures) as defunct institutions of the previous Century.  Kent recommends replacing our Provincial Legislatures with a new form of “federalism” which bears a strong resemblance to the Communist expanded administrative municipal regions documented in Moscow in 1975 by Maurice (Morris) Zeitlin writing in Communist Workers’ World.  I can tell from the same article that Kent also knows why Stephen Harper declared Quebec “a nation” in 2006:  precisely to disintegrate Canada to use Quebec to “negotiate” Kent’s “new federalism”.
