GLORIA IN EXCELSIS
[CN transcript of remarks by west coast researcher Dave Emory.]
We're talking about Gloria Steinem, her association with the
Central Intelligence Agency, with Ms. magazine (of course), with
people like Katherine Graham, with men like J. Stanley Pottinger.
We just took a look at Pottinger's possible role in an arms
smuggling scam and his definite role in covering up the
assassinations of Orlando Letelier and Martin Luther King.
Now we're going to take a look at the interesting
"extra-curricular activities," I guess you could say, of the
woman who was the *first* publisher of Ms. magazine. Sometime in
the early '70s, a woman by the name of Pat Carbine ("Carbine,"
sort of ironic in light of Pottinger's role in these
assassinations) was, she became the publisher of Ms. Before that,
the publisher of Ms. magazine was a woman named Elizabeth
Forsling Harris(sp?). And it appears that Elizabeth Forsling
Harris played a primary role in the assassination of John
Reading from Volume IV of one of the best series of books on the
Kennedy assassination... It's called, *Forgive My Grief*. It
occurs in 4 volumes. It's authored by Penn Jones, Jr.
Now Penn is the editor of the Midlothian Mirror (Midlothian is a
suburb of Dallas), and he's one of the foremost researchers, and
a man who began investigating the Kennedy assassination *on*
11/22/63 and stuck with it for a long time. Far, far longer than
most. And he published *Forgive My Grief*, Volume IV, in 1974.
Copyright 1974, privately published by Penn Jones, Jr., in
By the way, the title comes from a poem: "In Memoriam," by
Alfred Lord Tennyson. It says,
Forgive my grief for one removed,
Thy creature whom I found so fair.
I trust he lives in Thee,
And there I find him worthier to be loved.
(A lot of people have wondered where that reference comes from.)
But anyway, far more important than that reference, is the
association of Gloria Steinem and Ms.'s first publisher,
Elizabeth Forsling Harris. And it appears that Elizabeth
Forsling Harris was involved in planning the assassination of
John Kennedy. (Interesting, in light of Steinem's paramour, J.
Stanley Pottinger, and his connections not only to the
assassination of Martin Luther King, but also his association
with people like Michael Vernon Townley, Frank Turpel, Edwin
Wilson -- and not to mention George Bush -- in the assassination
of Orlando Letelier.)
Reading now from *Forgive My Grief*, Volume IV.
(And by the way, most of the articles in Penn's book are actually
editorials or investigative columns done by Penn in the
Midlothian Mirror. And this is one of them.)
The Women's Liberation Movement, as well as the Youth
Movement, must constantly be aware of the problem of
infiltration by enemies. In fact, the [Women's] Liberation
group may very well have been taken over already by the Ms.
publisher, Elizabeth Forsling Harris. According to the
Dallas papers, Mrs. Harris accompanied Liberation leader
Gloria Steinem during the Steinem appearances in Dallas.
Since reading *Coup d'Etat* by Edward Lipvak(sp?), it is
easier to understand the enormous planning, and checking
and double-checking, necessary before the killing of
President John Kennedy could be successfully accomplished.
Taking over the most powerful country in the world is not a
small task. Having constant surveillance on the opinion
makers in Dallas was only one of the necessary requisites
in the planning stages. Betty Forsling Harris appears to
have been one of the high-level observers moved here from
Washington. She left Dallas shortly after the
Elizabeth Forsling came to Dallas a few years before the
assassination. She was a great and good friend of Stanley
Marcus of Nieman-Marcus [department store]. She married
and divorced Leon Harris of the A. Harris firm. Elizabeth
Forsling Harris worked for the Saul Bloom Advertising
Agency and was referred to by Washington planners as "our
Dallas contact." She attended the important planning
sessions for the coming visit of the President. The Bloom
Agency handled the public relations for the visit, then
also handled public relations for the Jack Ruby trial.
This was a first for any court, to have a public relations
firm employed in a court case.
Elizabeth Forsling Harris was a very close co-worker, with
Jack Pewterbaugh(sp?), on the Dallas trip which cost the
life of President John Kennedy. Pewterbaugh came to
Washington from Minnesota, with Orville Freeman(sp?). In
the Agriculture Department, Pewterbaugh was working closely
with Billy Sol Estes, later convicted and sent to prison.
It was Pewterbaugh who made the decision to hold the lunch
in the Trade Mart, "because of the proximity to Love
Field." And it was Pewterbaugh who made the decision to
take the unauthorized and unnecessary detour in Dealey
The two decisions make Pewterbaugh up to his hips in the
assassination. Neither he, nor Betty Harris, were ever
questioned by the Warren Commission.
And again, the Bloom Agency handled the P.R. not only for
President Kennedy's visit to Dallas, but also handled the public
relations for Jack Ruby's trial. This was the first time any
court had had a public relations firm employed in such a
capacity. (Although my understanding is that now that is sort of
standard operating procedure, where anyone can afford it. So
this was sort of a ground-breaking event.)
One thing that is *not* included in that particular article about
the Bloom Agency (and recall that's with whom Elizabeth Forsling
Harris was working) is that Oswald had visited the Bloom Agency a
number of times before his alleged (and obviously non-existent)
role in the assassination of Kennedy.
The important thing in examining Oswald, by the way (as we looked
at not only in "The Guns of November," but in a number of Radio
Free America shows -- the "Aryan Nation" series and "World
Anti-Communist" series in particular [CN: Tapes of past
broadcasts may still be available; phone 415-346-1840, or contact
Conspiracy Nation for more info]), but the important thing about
examining Oswald is to find out *who* manipulated him in such a
way as to take the fall for the Kennedy assassination. Lee
Harvey Oswald didn't kill anyone.
The point here is that Elizabeth Forsling Harris appears to have
been a primary planner in the Kennedy assassination. She was
never questioned by the Warren Commission, she worked for the
Bloom Agency, which had some curious roles throughout the [Ruby]
trial. And beyond that, she was heavily involved, along with
Jack Pewterbaugh, in planning the motorcade route for John
Kennedy. (That, of necessity -- for those who've studied the
details of the assassination -- has to have placed her, as Penn
Jones indicated, in the very center of the conspiracy itself.
And as we've looked at in our "Aryan Nation" series as well as
"The Guns of November," the Kennedy assassination was, for all
intents and purposes, a military coup.)
Now again, perhaps the Steinem association with Elizabeth
Forsling Harris in and of itself wouldn't be too damning. But in
light of all the other information -- the Independent Research
Service connections, in light of her association with J. Stanley
Pottinger and some of the things Pottinger's been involved in --
it's one more very interesting detail concerning Steinem and her
involvement in a very deep intelligence mileau.
And again, Elizabeth Forsling Harris replaced (ironically enough)
by Pat Carbine, as publisher of Ms. magazine.
