Whelan? For real? What a coincidence, that last name. Thought it sounded familar. I've tried a couple of places to also include cached versions to speed up locating the Whelan name. James Whelan was founding editor of The Washington Times, which was founded in 1982. Not sure which year Whelan became founding editor, though. Whelan quit after two years after realizing the hankey-pankey that went on there, and who began to speak out against the paper after that. Is there a connection between these two Whelans?<br><br><!--EZCODE AUTOLINK START--><a href="http://www.mediachannel.org/originals/moontranscript.shtml">www.mediachannel.org/orig...ript.shtml</a><!--EZCODE AUTOLINK END--><br><br><!--EZCODE AUTOLINK START--><a href="http://64.233.167.104/search?q=cache:gOamhd-wPogJ:www.mediachannel.org/originals/moontranscript.shtml+Whelan%2BSun+Myung+Moon&hl=en&gl=us&ct=clnk&cd=1">64.233.167.104/search?q=c...=clnk&cd=1</a><!--EZCODE AUTOLINK END--><br><br><br><br><!--EZCODE AUTOLINK START--><a href="http://www.rickross.com/reference/unif/unif163.html">www.rickross.com/referenc...if163.html</a><!--EZCODE AUTOLINK END--><br>Moon Speech <br><br>cached <!--EZCODE AUTOLINK START--><a href="http://64.233.167.104/search?q=cache:fNGniYvMEGIJ:www.rickross.com/reference/unif/unif163.html+Whelan%2BSun+Myung+Moon&hl=en&gl=us&ct=clnk&cd=7">64.233.167.104/search?q=c...=clnk&cd=7</a><!--EZCODE AUTOLINK END--><br><br><br><br><br><br><!--EZCODE AUTOLINK START--><a href="http://www.dailykos.com/storyonly/2005/12/15/221015/62">www.dailykos.com/storyonl.../221015/62</a><!--EZCODE AUTOLINK END--><br><br>cached <!--EZCODE AUTOLINK START--><a href="http://64.233.167.104/search?q=cache:geBv3rZxwhoJ:www.dailykos.com/storyonly/2005/12/15/221015/62+Whelan%2BSun+Myung+Moon&hl=en&gl=us&ct=clnk&cd=4">64.233.167.104/search?q=c...=clnk&cd=4</a><!--EZCODE AUTOLINK END--> <p></p><i>Edited by: <A HREF=http://p216.ezboard.com/brigorousintuition.showUserPublicProfile?gid=chiggerbit@rigorousintuition>chiggerbit</A> at: 6/12/06 6:13 pm<br></i>

James Whelan related to Nebraska Whelans?

Postby FourthBase » Mon Jun 12, 2006 8:51 pm

I don't know, Chigger, there might be a connection, might not. It's definitely interesting that one Whelan was a Moonie deprogrammer while the other was a Moonie paper founding editor. James Whelan has written a book about Allende, and he seems to be one of the world's leading Pinochet champions.<br><br>BTW, Here's more about that Moonie deprogramming:<br><br><!--EZCODE AUTOLINK START--><a href="http://www.skepticfiles.org/cultinfo/kidnap66.htm">www.skepticfiles.org/cult...dnap66.htm</a><!--EZCODE AUTOLINK END--><br><br><!--EZCODE QUOTE START--><blockquote><strong><em>Quote:</em></strong><hr>DENVER (AP) -- Britta Adolfsson said Friday she forgives her parents for hiring deprogrammers to snatch her from the Unification Church, but will never again trust them.<br><br>"They (her parents) apologized to me. They promised they<br>would never do it again and they asked for my forgiveness," Adolfsson, 29, told a news conference at a Denver Unification Church. "I understand where they're coming from. They really love me and I love them ... but I feel I can't trust them."<br><br>She said her parents, Tord and Edith Adolfsson, paid thousands of dollars to hire a team of deprogrammers to kidnap her from the Rev. Sun Myung Moon's Unification Church on May 26. The woman said she became a church member about seven years ago after spending a year as an exchange student at a California college.<br><br>Britta Adolfsson told reporters she was not coerced into<br>becoming a Moonie. She said she joined freely because she embraced their "ideals and ideas" about God and life.<br><br>Frightened by "a lot of negative publicity" surrounding the<br>Unification Church and rumors that she would marry again in a mass ceremony, her parents, brother and sister, who live in Sweden, hired the deprogrammers, Adolfsson said.<br><br>"I'm not a kid anymore. I know what I'm doing," she said.<br>"But they (her parents) are simple people ... I feel very sorry<br>for them. They had a lot of confusion and fear. They were worried about me.<br><br>"I am shocked this happened. I did not feel they (parents)<br>would do this to me. We had a good relationship," she said.<br><br><!--EZCODE BOLD START--><strong>She said it was difficult to believe her parents were involved with Dennis Whelan and his son-in-law, Jimmy Lee Hilzendenger, who allegedly plucked her off East 14th Avenue in Capitol Hill as she walked to a morning appointment.</strong><!--EZCODE BOLD END--><br><br>When she was pulled into the van Adolfsson said she was sure the five men would rape her. But they drove around for about two hours before arriving at an elegant home with a swimming pool, jacuzzi and horses. There her parents and about seven deprogrammers waited.<br><br> "I was scared, very upset and angry. I was violated. There was no respect shown for me as a human being," she said. Tuesday morning, Adolfsson escaped through a bathroom window while her captors slept in a Kansas house.<br><br> A few days later, Whelan and Hilzendenger, private<br>investigators from Nebraska, were arrested, and her parents were detained by police. The Adolfssons, who returned to Sweden on Friday, will not be charged.<br><br> Whelan and Hilzendenger are free on bond.<hr></blockquote><!--EZCODE QUOTE END--><br><br><!--EZCODE AUTOLINK START--><a href="http://www.skepticfiles.org/cultinfo/kidnap3.htm">www.skepticfiles.org/cult...idnap3.htm</a><!--EZCODE AUTOLINK END--><br><br><!--EZCODE QUOTE START--><blockquote><strong><em>Quote:</em></strong><hr>DENVER (AP) -- Two Omaha detectives are free on bond after a judge reduced bail on kidnapping charges to $5,000 each.<br><br> Dennis Whelan, 52 and James Hilzenderger 27, were released Wednesday from the Denver City Jail.<br><br> The men, charged with second-degree kidnapping, conspiracy and false imprisonment, had been held on $250,000 bond. But Denver Judge Robert Crew Jr. reduced the bond after a two-hour hearing.<br><br> Crew said the men may not participate in any deprogramming activities and must remain within a 200-mile radius of Omaha.<br><br> Whelan, reportedly an expert on deprogramming cult followers, and Hilzenderger were arrested last week following the May 26 abuction of Britta Adolfsson, 29, of Sweden from a Denver street. The woman was forced into a van by two men in broad daylight, witnesses told police.<br><br> Authorities have said Adolfsson's parents, Swedish physicist Tord Adolfsson and his wife, Edith, hired deprogrammers to abduct their daughter because they were concerned about her upcoming wedding this summer to a man in a mass wedding in South Korea. No charges have been filed against the Adolfssons in the case.<br><br> Britta Adolfsson reportedly has belonged for eight years to<br>the Unification Church, whose members are known as "Moonies" because of their Korean founder, the Rev. Sun Myung Moon, police have said.<br><br> For a week, Adolfsson had been the object of a search by Denver police with the help of the FBI. But Tuesday morning, she ran from a house in Lyons and flagged down Sgt. Buck Causey of the Kansas Highway Patrol. "She said she had been kidnapped," Causey said.<br><br> Adolfsson told authorities several men had held her captive at the house, but they apparently fled before police could search the dwelling.<br><br> The women appeared to have "no physical injuries," as a result of her time in captivity, said Denver District Attorney Norm Early, "but something like this has to affect you emotionally. The terror of being snatched off the street has to be extremely great."<br><br> Two Denver detectives on Wednesday brought Adolfsson back to Denver where she was staying at a hotel, officials said.<hr></blockquote><!--EZCODE QUOTE END--><br><br><!--EZCODE AUTOLINK START--><a href="http://www.skepticfiles.org/cultinfo/whelan90.htm">www.skepticfiles.org/cult...elan90.htm</a><!--EZCODE AUTOLINK END--><br><br><!--EZCODE QUOTE START--><blockquote><strong><em>Quote:</em></strong><hr>OMAHA, Neb.
