more on Boys Town with Buffett involvement

Postby sw » Sat Oct 03, 2009 8:45 am

One of King?s earliest boosters was the wife of a man with an unrivaled reputation for shrewd investments- Warren E Buffett, chairman of Berkshire Hathaway. Based in Omaha, Buffett is the second biggest stockholder of the Washington Post and a controlling power in ABC-TV. In 1991, he acquired large blocks of stock in American Express and Wells Fargo bank. When Salomon Brothers faltered in August 1991, the owner of 13% of its stock- Buffett- stepped in as interim chairman. Wifh $4.4 billion to his name, Buffett is ranked by Fortune magazine as the 24th richest man in the world, and in the United States among the top five. In Omaha, the Buffett mystique gains from the fact that there are two hundred-some χBuffett millionares,

[PART 15]

SCANDAL IN NEBRASKA

As the call boy ring affair dominated the cocktail gossip circuit in
Washington, another scandal, halfway across the country in the state
of Nebraska, peaked. Again this scandal knocked on the President's
door.

A black Republican who had been a leader in organizing minority
support for the President's 1988 campaign and who proudly displayed
a photo of himself and the President, arm in arm, in his Omaha home,
was at the center of a sex and money scandal that continues to rock
the Cornhusker state.

The scandal originated with the collapse of the minority-oriented
Franklin Community Credit Union in Omaha, directed by Lawrence
[LARRY] E. KING, Jr., a nationally influential black Republican who
sang the national anthem at both the 1984 and 1988 Republican conven-
tions. King became the subject of the Nebraska Senate's investigation
conducted by the specially created "Franklin Committee" to probe charges
of embezzlement. In November 1988, King's offices were raided by the
FBI and $40 million was discovered missing. Within weeks, the Nebraska
Senate, which initially opened the inquiry to find out where the money
had gone, instead found itself questioning young adults and teenagers
who said that they had been child prostitutes. Social workers and
state child-care administrators accused King of running a child prostitu-
tion ring. The charges grew, with the former police chief of Omaha, the
publisher of the state's largest daily newspaper, and several other political
associates of King, finding themselves accused of patronizing the child
prostitution ring.

King is now serving a 15-year federal prison sentence for defrauding
the Omaha-based credit union. But the magazines "Avvenimenti" of Italy
and "Pronto" of Spain, among others, have charged that King's crimes
were more serious: that he ran a national child prostitution ring that
serviced the political and business elite of both Republican and Demo-
cratic parties. Child victims of King's operations charged him with
participation in at least one SATANIC RITUAL MURDER of a child
several years ago. The "Washington Post", "New York Times", "Village
Voice" and "National Law Journal" covered the full range of accusations
after the story broke in November of 1988. King's money machinations
were also linked to the Iran-Contra affair, and some say that King provided
the CIA with information garnered from his alleged activities as a "pimp"
for the high and mighty.

"Pronto", the Barcelona-based, largest circulation weekly in Spain
with 4.5 million readers, reported that the Lawrence E. King child
prostitution scandal "appears to directly implicate politicos of the state
of Nebraska and Washington, D.C. who are very close to the White
House and George Bush himself."

The weekly stated that Roy Stephens, a private investigator who has
worked on the case and heads the MISSING YOUTH FOUNDATION,
"says there is reason to believe THAT THE CIA IS DIRECTLY IMPLI-
CATED," and that the "FBI refuses to help in the investigation and has
SABOTAGED any efforts" to get to the bottom of the story. [This
indicates that the FBI is now owned and controlled more or less by the
CIA. A far cry from the days of Elliot Ness and Al CaPone when the
FBI was more concerned with enforcing justice. - Wol.] Stephens says
that "Paul Bonacci directly accused President Bush of being implicated"
in the affair when he testified before the Franklin Committee. / Note #3
Bonacci, who had been one of the child prostitutes, is identified by
leading child-abuse experts as a well-informed, credible witness.

Lawrence King was no stranger to President Bush. And Lawrence King
was no stranger to Craig Spence. Several of the Omaha child prostitutes
testified that they had traveled to Washington, D.C. with King in private
planes to attend political events which were followed by [CHILD] SEX
PARTIES. King and Spence had much in common. Not only were they
both Republican Party activists but they had gone into business together
procuring prostitutes for Washington's elite.

Bush's name had repeatedly surfaced in the Nebraska scandal. But his
name was first put into print in July 1989, a little less than a month
after the Washington call boy affair had first made headlines. Omaha's
leading daily newspaper reported, "One child, who has been under
psychiatric care, is said to believe she saw George Bush at one of
King's parties." / Note #4

A full three years after the scandal had first made headlines, Bush's
name again appeared in print. "Gentleman's Quarterly (GQ)" carried
a lengthy article, viewed by many political observers in Nebraska as
an attempt to refute the charges, which would not die, despite the
termination of all official inquiries. The "GQ" piece disputed the allega-
tions as a conspiracy theory that went out of control and resonated
because of some mystical sociological phenomena allegedly unique
to Nebraskan rural folk who will believe anything and burn "with the
mistrust of city life that once inflamed the prairie with populist passion."
Numerous polls over the last few years have recorded over 90% saying
they believe there has been a "cover up" of the truth.

"GQ" reported that yes, there was theft, corruption and homosexuality
in this story, "but no children were ever involved in this case." In fact,
"the only child even mentioned was a 9-year-old boy, whom the least
reliable of [Senate Committee investigator Gary] Caradori's witnesses
claimed to have seen in the company of George Bush at one of Larry
King's Washington parties."

Gary Caradori was a retired state police investigator who had been
hired by the Nebraska Senate to investigate the case, and who had
DIED mysteriously DURING THE COURSE of his investigations. /
Note #5

Sound crazy? Not to Steve Bowman, an Omaha businessman who is
compiling a book about the Franklin money and sex scandal. "We do
have some credible witnesses who say that 'Yes, George Bush does
have a problem.'... Child abuse has become one of the epidemics of the
1990s," Bowman told "GQ". Allegedly, one of Bowman's sources is a
retired psychiatrist who worked for the CIA. He added that cocaine
trafficking and political corruption [Bush and his CIA associates were
allegedly involved with all three. - Wol.] were the other principal themes
of his book. / Note #6

It didn't sound crazy to Peter Sawyer either. An Australian
conservative activist who publishes a controversial newsletter,
"Inside News", with a circulation of 200,000, dedicated his November
1991 issue entirely to the Nebraska scandal, focusing on President
Bush's links to the affair. In a section captioned, "The Original Alle-
gations: Bush First Named in 1985," Sawyer writes, "Stories about
child sex AND pornography first became public knowledge in 1989,
following the collapse of the Franklin Credit Union. That is not when
the allegations started, however. Indeed, given the political flavor
of the subsequent investigations, it would be easy to dismiss claims
that George Bush had been involved. He was by then a very public
figure....

"If the first allegations about a massive child exploitation ring, centered
around LARRY KING and leading all the way to the White House, had
been made in 1989, and had all come from the same source, some
shenanigans and mischievous collusion could be suspected. However,
the allegations arising out of the Franklin Credit Union collapse were
not the first.

"Way back in 1985, a young girl, Eulice (Lisa) Washington, was the
center of an investigation by Andrea L. Carener, of the Nebraska
Department of Social Services. The investigation was instigated
because Lisa and her sister Tracey continually ran away from their
foster parents, Jarrett and Barbara Webb. Initially reluctant to
disclose information for fear of being further punished, the two girls
eventually recounted a remarkable story, later backed up by OTHER
children who had been fostered out to the Webb's [sic].

"These debriefings were conducted by Mrs. Julie Walters, another
welfare officer, who worked for Boys Town at the time, and who
had been called in because of the constant reference by the Webb
children and others, to that institution.

"Lisa, supported by her sister, detailed a massive child sex, homo-
sexual, and pornography industry, run in Nebraska by LARRY KING.
She described how she was regularly taken to Washington by plane,
with other youths, to attend parties hosted by King and involving
many prominent people, including businessmen and politicians. Lisa
specifically named GEORGE BUSH as being in attendance on at
least two separate occasions.

"Remember, this was in 1985," emphasized the Australian newsletter.

The newsletter reproduces several documents on Lisa's case, including
a Nebraska State Police report, a State of Nebraska Foster Care Review
Board letter to the Attorney General, an investigative report prepared
for the Franklin Committee of the Nebraska Senate, and a portion of
the handwritten debriefing by Mrs. Julie Walters. Peter Sawyer says
that he obtained the documents from sympathetic Australian law
enforcement officers who had helped Australian Channel Ten produce
an expose of a national child prostitution ring, Down Under. The
Australian cops seem to have been in communication with American
law enforcement officers who apparently agreed that there had been a
coverup on the Nebraska scandal. Subsequent investigations by the
authors established that all four documents were authentic.

Mrs. Julie Walters, now a housewife in the Midwest, confirmed that in
1986 she had interviewed the alleged child prostitute, Lisa, who told
her about Mr. BUSH. Lisa and her sister Tracey were temporarily living
at the time in the home of Kathleen Sorenson, another foster parent.
Mrs. Walters explained that at first she was very surprised. But Lisa,
who came from a very underprivileged background with no knowledge
of political affairs, gave minute details of her attendance at political
meetings around the country.

From Julie Walters' 50-page handwritten report: "3/25/86. Met with
Kathleen [Sorenson] and Lisa for about 2 hours in Blair [Neb.]
questioning Lisa for more details about sexual abuse.... Lisa admitted
to being used as a prostitute by Larry King when she was on trips
with his family. She started going on trips when she was in 10th grade.
Besides herself and Larry there was also Mrs. King, their son, Prince,
and 2-3 other couples. They traveled in Larry's private plane, Lisa
said that at these trip parties, which Larry hosted, she sat naked
'looking pretty and innocent' and guests could engage in ANY sexual
activity they wanted (but penetration was not allowed) with her....
Lisa said she first met V.P. George Bush at the Republican Convention
(that Larry King sang the national anthem at) and saw him again at a
Washington, D.C. party that Larry hosted. At that party, Lisa saw no
women ('make-up was perfect -- you had to check their legs to make
sure they weren't a woman').

"The polygraph test which Lisa took only centered around sexual abuse
committed by Jarrett Webb. At that time, she had said only general
things about Larry's trips (i.e. where they went, etc.). She only began
talking about her involvement in prostitution during those trips on
3/25/86....

"Lisa also accompanied Mr. and Mrs. King and Prince on trips to
Chicago, N.Y. and Washington, D.C. beginning when she was 15 years
old. She missed twenty-two days of school almost totally due to these
trips. Lisa was taken along on the pretense of being Prince's babysitter.
Last year she met V.P. George Bush and saw him again at one of the
parties Larry gave while on a Washington, D.C. trip. At some of the
parties there are just men (as was the case at the party George Bush
attended) -- older men and younger men in their early twenties. Lisa
said she has seen sodomy committed at those parties....

"At these parties, Lisa said every guest had a bodyguard and she saw
some of the men wearing guns. All guests had to produce a card which
was run through a machine to verify who the guest was, in fact, who
they said they were. And then each guest was frisked down before
entering the party." / Note #7

The details of the accusations against Mr. Bush are known to be in the
hands of the FBI. A Franklin Committee report stated: "Apparently she
[Lisa] was contacted on December 19 [1988] and voluntarily came to the
FBI offices on December 30, 1988. She was interviewed by Brady, Tucker
and Phillips.

"She indicates that in September or October 1984, when [Lisa] Washing-
ton was fourteen or fifteen years of age, she went on a trip to Chicago
with Larry King and fifteen to twenty boys from Omaha. She flew to
Chicago on a private plane.

"The plane was large and had rows of two seats apiece on either side
of the interior middle aisle.

"She indicates that King got the boys from Boys Town and the boys
worked for him. She stated that Rod Evans and two other boys with the
last name of Evans were on the plane. Could not recall the names of
the other boys.

"The boys who flew to Chicago with Washington and King were between
the ages of fifteen and eighteen. Most of the boys were black but some
were white. She was shown a color photograph of a boy and identified
that boy as being one of the boys on the plane. She could not recall
his name.

"She indicates that she was coerced to going on the trip by Barbara
Webb.

"She indicates that she attended a party in Chicago with King and the
male youths. She indicated GEORGE BUSH was present.

"She indicates that she set [sic] at a table at the party while wearing
nothing but a negligee. She stated that George Bush saw her on the
table. She stated she saw George Bush pay King money, and that
Bush left the party with a nineteen year old BLACK BOY named Brent."

Lisa said the party George Bush attended was in Chicago in September
or October 1984. According to the "Chicago Tribune" of October 31,
1984, Bush WAS IN Illinois campaigning for congressional candidates
at the end of October.

Lisa added more details on the Chicago trip, and told why she was sure
it was George Bush she had seen. According to a May 8, 1989 report
by investigator Jerry Lowe, "Eulice [Lisa] indicated that she recognized
George Bush as coming to the party and that Bush had two large white
males with him. Eulice indicated Bush came to the party approximately
45 minutes after it started and that he was greeted by Larry King. Eulice
indicated that she knew George Bush due to the fact that he had been
in political campaigns and also she had observed a picture of Bush with
Larry King at Larry King's house in Omaha."

There is no question that Lisa and Tracey Webb were abused in the
way they claimed. But, in keeping with the alleged pattern of coverup, a
Washington County, Nebraska 'judge' in December 1990 dismissed ALL
charges against their abusers, Jarrett and Barbara Webb. The judge
IGNORED presented testimony of the 1986 report by Boys Town official
Julie Walters. The report stated: "Lisa was given four polygraph tests
administered by a state trooper at the State Patrol office on Center
Street in Omaha. The state trooper, after Lisa's testing was completed,
told [another foster parent] he tried to 'break Lisa down,' but he was
convinced SHE WAS TELLING THE TRUTH." / Note #8

Furthermore, numbers of foster care officials and youth workers
debriefed the sisters. All of them fully believed not only their general
story of abuse, but specifically their account of Bush's involvement.
The March 1986 report on Bush was incorporated into the Foster Care
Review Board's official report presented to the Senate Franklin Com-
mittee and to law enforcement. As Kathleen Sorenson wrote in a report
dated May 1, 1989, "This was long before he [Bush] was President. It
seems like there were more exciting people to 'lie' about if that's what
they were doing." / Note #9

In the September 7, 1988 issue of the Omaha Metropolitan, There were more CIA people working out of Offitt than out of Langley, Virginia. Many psychological operations were located there, seemingly affirming claims that the children were subjects of experiments. One experimental program, acknowledge by the CIA, is MIK-ULTRA, in which children are confused and manipulated via drugs and sex.

When he died on February 20, 2005, Thompson was on the telephone with his wife when he allegedly shot himself, but she said she heard a muffled sound.
Chicago writer Sherman Skolnick has reported that Thompson was doing a book on the politically connected sex trade, but he offered no evidence to support this . There is only mention of Thompson in De Camp’s book, but Thompson never challenged it in court. The only other evidence comes from the Alex Jones radio program. A Thompson acquaintance had this to say:

CALLER “Scott from Texas”: I was just wondering if you guys might be able to clear up something I heard through the journalist Sherman Skolnick. He is reporting that another story or book, I don’t remember exactly which, that Hunter S. Thompson was working on was about this gay prostitution ring in the White House and supposedly that was another touchy topic that he brought out, and the wholeJONES: Had you heard that from Hunter?
PAUL WILLAM ROBERTS: Yeah, I had heard that quite a lot from Hunter. It goes back to Kissinger, I believe.
JONES: Wow.
Now that’s a big confirmation. Now for those who don’t know, We have Washington Times articles from 1989, you know—‘underage call boys in the White House’, and so this is serious . .. Hunter was working on that?
ROBERTS: Yeah, in fact Lyndon LaRouche published some stuff about that. And although, you know, a lot of his material was not that trustworthy, in this particular case there were a lot of sources cited and there was no lawsuit. And where there’s no lawsuit you can be almost guaranteed that it’s true.

I've got to say here that I find Sherman Skolnick incredibly challenging and complex. I think he may have "gotten there first" with a lot of his hunches, for example that certain American Yippie leaders may have been agents of some sort.

On the other hand, he had the bad habit of pulling certain assertions out of thin air, without any sort of solid evidence to back them up. So I would want to know more about the allegations that Hunter S. Thompson was working on an expose' of the political sex trade. I am familiar with Rusty Nelson's allegations in regards to Thompson- not completely sure what to say about that...

During Owens´ imprisonment, which began in 1991, she was kept in solitary confinement longer that any other woman in the history of the State of Nebraska. Owens was released on parole in 1997, but then the show "Inside Edition" aired an episode discussing the idea that Johnny Gosch may still be alive and she was picked up a week later, she was informed she had to complete her sentence in jail. During pre-trial interviews, Owens stated that she had seen Gosch, as well as several boys from Boys Town, at the exclusive parties where she and others had been abused. Owens was released in 2000 and said she only wants to lead a "normal" life.

People need to remember that the Franklin Cover up story was the second story to link Boys Town and Bush to the child sex rings.

This story covers the earlier attempt at justice.

All of them fully believed not only their general story of abuse, but specifically their account of Bush's involvement. The March 1986 report on Bush was incorporated into the Foster Care Review Board's official report presented to the Senate Franklin Committee and to law enforcement. As Kathleen Sorenson wrote in a report dated May 1, 1989, ``This was long before he [Bush] was president. It seems like there were more exciting people to `lie' about if that's what they were mailto:doing.

The rumors about Mr. Bush were given new life when Dr. Ronald Roskens, the head of the Agency for International Development (AID), found himself the object of controversy. Executive Intelligence Review reported in the fall of 1991 that Dr. Roskens is the subject of a scandal in which he is being charged with violating federal laws and ethics codes, according to the Oct. 6 Washington Post. A report prepared by AID Inspector General Herbert Beckington, dated April 5 and leaked to the Post, charges Roskens with accepting thousands of dollars in payments from ``different organizations in compensation of his and his wife's travel expenses'' while Roskens was on official government travel. He also took money for a private trip from a company ``from which Roskens had agreed to divest himself as a condition of his presidential appointment.''
The inspector general concluded that the money accepted by Roskens was a clear conflict of interest and violated federal law against earning non-government income. But on Sept. 4, after reviewing the charges, the Department of Justice ... informed Beckington that it had decided not to prosecute--giving no explanation for its decision. The White House is reviewing the case.
Congressional investigators are already looking into the allegations. Should they scratch below the surface, they will find that this is not the first time Roskens has been touched by scandal. Although President Bush promised that he would not tolerate even the appearance of impropriety in his administration, Congress should not be surprised if the White House threatens to start ``breaking legs'' in Roskens's defense.

It is not just that Roskens is a personal friend of the President--although he is.... [A]n unimpeded investigation into Roskens could expose the link between Bush's little publicized birth control mania--much of which is carried out through the State Department's AID in the Third World--and the sexual depravity rampant in U.S. political and intelligence elites. Any such scandal could shatter the illusions of Bush's conservative base, many of whom still accept the President's claims to being ``pro-life,'' ``anti-drug,'' and an American patriot. It should also make anyone who thinks of the propaganda about Bush being the ``education President,'' deeply queasy.

Roskens left his home state of Nebraska for the nation's capital in early 1990 enmired in controversy. He had been fired suddenly as president of the University of Nebraska, in a secret meeting of the state Board of Regents in July 1989. No public explanation was given for his removal. Yet, within weeks, the White House offered Roskens the high-profile job in Washington. The administration knew about the controversy in Nebraska, but Roskens passed an FBI background check, and was confirmed to head AID.

The FBI appears to have overlooked a Feb. 19, 1990 investigative report by the late Gary Caradori [see footnote 5 below], an investigator for the ``Franklin Committee'' of the Nebraska Senate. He wrote, ``I was informed that Roskins [sic] was terminated by the state because of sexual activities reported to the Regents and verified by them. Mr. Roskins [sic] was reported to have had young men at his residence for sexual encounters. As part of the separation from the state, he had to move out of the state-owned house because of the liability to the state if some of his sexual behavior was mailto:`illegal.

There has been no independent confirmation of the accusation. As of late December 1991, a congressional committee was looking into the charges.

Holocaust Memorial Killer James Von Brunn & Reagan Aide Todd Blodgett of the Omaha Lincoln Savings/Washington Call Boy Scandals

From: "Holocaust Museum Shooting Suspect Had Been Growing More Hateful and Desperate"

Source - http://www.foxnews.com/story/0,2933,525825,00.html

... Neighbors of Von Brunn said they had recently invited him over for a drink, and out of the blue, he said the Holocaust did not occur, the Post reported.

Todd Blodgett, a former White House aide to President Ronald Reagan who later became affiliated with extremist groups, said he spent a lot of time with Von Brunn in the 1990s and early 2000s.

"Von Brunn is obsessed with Jewish people," Blodgett told the Post. "He had equal contempt for both Jews and blacks, but if he had to pick one group to wipe out, he'd always say it would be Jews."

Von Brunn went so far as to say he fought on the wrong side of World War II, according to Blodgett.

"You'd get the impression that he was intelligent and a bit off," said Blodgett, who worked as a paid FBI informant on white supremacist groups. ... "

SO WHO IS TODD BLODGETT??

I'm so pleased you asked:

Source - http://www.apfn.net/messageboard/04-30- ... gi.52.html

Blodgett is the head of an advertising or PR agency in DC, called the TAD Agency.

Blodgett first emerges in the 1989 Washington Times expose of gay escorts being taken on midnight tours of the Reagan/Bush WH. These tours were organized by Craig Spence, an associate of Lawrence King of the Franklin credit union S&L looting/boy prostitution scandal. It is frequently claimed that Spence recorded his clients and used his lists/recordings for blackmail and political power purposes. He also claimed to be working for the CIA, although those claims could have been self-serving attempts to deflect prosecution.

At the time this story broke, one person publicly identified as caught up in the credit card lists was Todd Blodgett. He credit card was used to pay for prositutes, but he always maintained that he allowed a friend to use his card. At the time, Blodgett was a protege of Lee Atwater, carrying out negative research on Democrats. In the Reagan/Bush WH he was a staff editorial assistant, then moved on to be advisor to the Bush/Quale campaign as domestic policy advisor.
http://www.splcenter.org/intel/intelrep ... cle.jsp?...

After leaving politics for the private sector, Blodgett played a peculiar role as a middle man in several transactions seemingly designed to protect the assets of far RW neo-Nazi companies and institutions that were insolvent. He purchased mailing lists from the Willis Carto's Liberty Lobby for $85,000 (which were allegedly worth in the millions), delivering by his own testimony the last $25,000 in cash as 250 $100 bills.
http://homepage.mac.com/lsf/personal/business_tb.html

The purpose was to get the lists out of Liberty Lobby ownership, because it was being forced into bankruptcy because of lawsuits by the "revisionist" Institute for Historical Review.

Blodgett similarly came to the rescue of skinhead/neo-nazi Resistance Records. Its owners faced judgments in Canada under that country's hate speech law and in Michigan for back taxes. Blodgett and Carto purchased the record label. After a falling out with Carto, Blodgett brokered the sale of the record label to Turner Diaries author and National Alliance founder William Pierce. This took place in DC's University Club. Blodgett was eventually ejected from membership of the Club once it was discovered he brokered this deal in their building. Washington Post 1/12/00.

Blodgett was a very busy young man running several businesses out of the Kennedy-Warren that landmark building. In addition to his mailing list business and Resistance Records (which the Kennedy-Warren politely asked him to take off premises), it is alleged by TBRNews and Cannonfire blog that Blodgett ran a call boy service.

Bush press pal quits over gay prostitute link

by Helen Kennedy
New York Daily News
February 9, 2005

WASHINGTON - A conservative ringer who was given a press pass to the White House and lobbed softball questions at President Bush quit yesterday after left-leaning Internet bloggers discovered possible ties to gay prostitution.

"The voice goes silent," Jeff Gannon wrote on his Web site. "In consideration of the welfare of me and my family, I have decided to return to private life."

Gannon began covering the White House two years ago for an obscure Republican Web site (Talon-News.com). He was known for his friendly questions, including asking Bush at last month's news conference how he could work with Democrats "who seem to have divorced themselves from reality."

Gannon was also given a classified CIA memo that named agent Valerie Plame, leading to his grilling by the grand jury investigating her outing.

He came under lefty scrutiny after revelations that the administration was paying conservative pundits to talk up Bush's proposals. By examining Internet records, online sleuths at DailyKos.com figured out that his real name was Jim Guckert and he owned various Web sites, including HotMilitaryStud.com, MilitaryEscorts.com and MilitaryEscortsM4M.com.

"The issue here is whether someone with connections to male prostitution was given unfettered access to the White House and copies of internal CIA documents. For a family values administration, that's pretty creepy," said John Aravosis, one of the bloggers chasing the story.

The White House didn't return a call asking how someone using an alias was given daily clearance to enter the White House.

On his TalonNews Web site, Gannon had written that liberals were out to get him because he's a white conservative man who owns a gun, drives a sport-utility vehicle and is a born-again Christian.

Yesterday, however, he abruptly quit, and all of the stories he wrote were erased from the Web site. A great many were on gay issues, including one detailing John Kerry's "pro-homosexual platform" that was headlined mockingly, "Kerry Could Become First Gay President."

Voice of the White House

October 15, 2004: “ The last material I sent you, about a pending war, is causing pandemonium inside the Monkey Palace. They have been looking for the leaks for months now and we have the Secret Service, the FBI and Homeland Security all involved at one level or another. Phones are being watched, laptops searched physically, in some cases we have seen staff taking lie detector tests and over all of this, threats of arrest and imprisonment for violating National Security! I will have more for you tomorrow on the possibility/probability of military action against Iran but in the meantime, here is a juicy bit for you. For the present, no names but they will follow. Seems a former White House aide, (Reagan White House) was caught running a male prostitution service and got fired from the Monkey Palace, and later from the RNC for supplying muscular boy toys to some top Beltway gays. Well, after being fired, our bozo got together with a Muslim druggie and set up operations at the Kennedy-Warren, a landmark DC apartment/business complex. They ran a male escort service supplying young studs to older Beltway citizens. Among these citizens were: Federal judges, top political figures, mostly Republican, very senior military people and certainly members of Congress. The head of this service, that utilized credit cards for payment, supplied young men, mostly young servicemen, between 18 to 25 for sex. They kept very complete records, including names and address of the johns as well as credit card receipts. And later there was blackmail and now, I have learned from the inside, this joker has sold the lists to: Iranians( through his partner’s Arab connections) and a gay group in DC. Sold the lists twice and got twice the money. I have seen a partial list and it reads like the DC social register, believe me! This enterprising young man is very liable to end up at the bottom of the Potomac River just like ex-CIA chief Bill Colby who was terminated by his former employees because he just couldn’t keep his mouth shut about certain things. I won’t have old Bill’s problem because I am not a Princeton man and even you don’t know who I am. You had the intestinal fortitude to print the material about the planned Iranian attack and maybe you will do the same with this one. I know a number of people inside the Beltway read your site…and loathe you…and if they read this and are closet queens, the sale of dignity pants will soar in the next few weeks. My, my, such lovely names! The Washington Times did a front page story on this joker some time back, by the way, but no one dared to touch him because of what, and whom, he knew…and serviced…”

TODD ALAN BLODGETT

Claims to fame: Son of Iowa state Republican assemblymember Gary Blodgett; protégé of GOP dirty-trickster Lee Atwater; Bush/Quayle election committee domestic policy adviser; Council of Conservative Citizens ...

Moral apex: Implicated in the Franklin Credit Union Child-Sex Ring Scandal (q.v.).

Neo-Nazis

[T]here they were, National Alliance leader Dr. William Pierce at a table along with two Skinheads and his host Todd Blodgett, a former Reagan White House staffer, GOP strategist and associate of national socialists, finalizing Pierce’s takeover of the most lucrative white supremacist enterprise in North America: Resistance Records. …

Pierce and Blodgett’s high-dollar dealing in the exclusive environs of Washington’s University Club was the culmination of what began more than six years earlier in a suburban Ontario bedroom with a young Skinhead’s dream of an Aryan rock ‘n’ roll empire. …

Padded by a wealthy Republican father, Todd Alan Blodgett has been a free-range hustler inside and out of the Washington Beltway since he served as a staffer in the Reagan White House.

The 39-year-old son of Republican State Rep. Gary Blodgett of Iowa, Todd Blodgett was a protégé of the late Lee Atwater, a key GOP campaign strategist of the time. Fresh from Drake University journalism school in 1983, Todd Blodgett went to work for since-retired Republican Sen. Roger Jepsen of Iowa.

Within a year, he was enjoying the run of the Reagan White House as a staff editorial assistant. Then it was on to the Bush/Quayle election committee as a domestic policy adviser.

But by 1995, Blodgett also had slipped into the anti-Semitic arms of Willis Carto. Splitting his time between GOP strategy and marketing Carto’s anti-Semitic tabloid The Spotlight, Blodgett was soon operating a number of Carto’s financial shells, including one that later held Resistance Records.

Late in 1998, Blodgett was a glad-handing fixture at the functions of various racist groups, including American Renaissance, a magazine run by white separatist Jared Taylor that focuses on alleged biological differences between races; the Council of Conservative Citizens, a white supremacist group with ties to many politicians that long has tried to portray itself as a mainstream conservative organization; and the neofascist British National Party.

By early spring 1999, having already reached out to Pierce, Blodgett was knocking back drinks with National Alliance middle managers, white supremacist Hammerskins [Hammerskin Nation] and assorted Klansmen.

Resistance Records LLC was incorporated in the District of Columbia on April 26, 1999. The names on the incorporation papers read William Luther Pierce and Todd A. Blodgett. The magazine initially was supposed to appear in June. The Resistance catalogue and inventory was supposed to be relocated from California to Washington that same month. …

During Pierce’s annual Labor Day weekend “leadership conference,” Blodgett delivered a brief report on the Resistance project. He was not well received. …

To cap off his weekend humiliation at the hands of Dr. Pierce, Blodgett managed to get himself punched out in a bar near Hillsboro by an irate West Virginian who took offense at his attentions toward a local young lady.

Mistrusted by veteran Skinheads, especially those in the militant Hammerskin Nation, Blodgett was flogged by white nationalists via the Internet and faxes. In a “Movement Warning” flyer from one of Todd’s former Skinhead gofers, Blodgett is described as “a parasite” and “a class ‘A’ horse’s ass.” The screed lambastes Blodgett and Jason Snow for allegedly bleeding the assets of Resistance for their personal gain.

But Blodgett appears oblivious to such attacks. He is now moving into the fresh green pastures of the Council of Conservative Citizens, where he and Aryan Nations crony Chris Temple expect to pull a few hundred thousand dollars out of CCC bosses Gordon Baum and Tom Dover in return for upgrading the Council’s publication and fundraising efforts. …

Former legislator lands Bush Administration post
September 7, 2001

A former state legislator has landed a Bush administration position with the Health Care Financing Administration. Gary Blodgett of Clear Lake started work last week as a federal administrative judge with the Medicare Provider Reimbursement Review Board. Blodgett sits on a board which a certified Medicare provider, such as a hospital, may appeal a final determination by the Center for Medicare and Medicaid Services. Blodgett says the hearings are conducted like a court proceeding. Blodgett was active in health care legislation both as a practicing orthodontist and as an assistant majority leader in the Iowa House.
