"Explosive New Edition of Book About Satanism in Nebraska"
(New Federalist, Jan. 27, 1997)
Review by Allen Douglas
In November 1988, the FBI swooped down on a small, federally
guaranteed credit union in Omaha, Neb. Some $40 million was
missing from the till, but that was the least of the scandal: It
soon emerged that Franklin, and its manager Larry King, were
centerpieces in a nationwide drug-running and pedophile ring
which reached into high political circles in Washington. There,
King maintained a mansion, was a leading figure in
African-American affairs for the Republican Party, and according
to witnesses, provided children to be sexually abused by the rich
and powerful. He was also a key figure in the money-laundering
and financial support apparatus for the Contras.
Shortly after the credit union was seized, the Nebraska State
Legislature set up its "Franklin Committee" to investigate the
matter. Soon, child victim-witnesses named some of the most
prominent figures in Omaha as being involved in the sex-and-drug
orgies, including World Herald newspaper publisher Harold
Andersen and police chief Robert Wadman. The children also
testified to almost unbelievable tales of Satanic ritual human
Former State Senator John DeCamp, one of the country's most
highly decorated Vietnam veterans, was the personal lawyer of the
Franklin Committee's chairman, Sen. Loran Schmit, and himself a
protagonist in the case: When law enforcement authorities showed
no signs of moving on the case, he wrote the famous "DeCamp memo"
in 1990, which named five prominent Nebraskans, including
Andersen and Wadman, as being involved, and which caused the case
to explode into headlines in Nebraska's press, and beyond.
DeCamp also became the lawyer for several of the children
In 1992, DeCamp wrote a book about the case, "The Franklin
Cover-Up: Child Abuse, Satanism, and Murder in Nebraska." Based
upon the documentary evidence accumulated by the State Senate's
Franklin Committee, and his own first-hand involvement, he
created in his book what was probably the most detailed account
ever published of the dozens of ritual abuse and pedophilia rings
which have surfaced all over the U.S., and internationally, over
the last two decades. The book also provided voluminous evidence
to show that the U.S. Department of Justice and the FBI were
covering up the case.
Without a single dollar of advertising, DeCamp's book sold 50,000
copies -- an almost unheard-of figure for a self-published book.
Four Years Later...
Now, some four and one-half years later, DeCamp has written a
second edition. It has 116 new pages, which makes it almost a
new book; like the first, it is a bombshell. The first three of
its eight new chapters update the case, and recount some of what
DeCamp calls "the hundreds of mini-miracles" which have occurred
since the first book was issued: individuals stepping forward
with new information which proves everything he said in the first
book, and which develops the case much further.
One of the most striking features of this second edition is
DeCamp's account of the super-secret "Monarch Project," aspects
of which were reported on earlier in this newspaper. Under this
name, Paul Bonacci and other victim-witnesses were subject to a
military mind-control experiment that involved creating
"Manchurian candidate"-style programmed assassins, prostitutes,
drug couriers, etc., through inducing "multiple personality
disorder" in the victims.
In addition to the new information which has poured in on the
Franklin case per se, two other events have since taken place
which amplify the events described in the first edition: The San
Jose Mercury-News account, in August 1996, of the Nicaraguan
Contras introducing crack cocaine into American ghettos, and the
exploding scandal of a high-level pedophilia and Satanism ring in
Belgium, which has caused the largest street demonstrations in
that country's history.
After recounting some new evidence about Larry King, George Bush,
and the Contras, and reminding his readers that some of the
abused children were couriers for a West Coast-centered drug
ring, DeCamp asks: "So, was Larry King's buddy George Bush the
country's 'drug kingpin' in the 1980s? I don't know. But what I
*do* know is that if Bush were running the Contra affair, and
drugs were a big part of it, that would certainly jibe 100
percent with everything known or rumored about Bush, Larry King,
and the Franklin Credit Union."
Although DeCamp did not have time to develop the leads from
Franklin into Europe in time for this second edition, key
features of the Belgian case are present in Franklin, providing
strong prima facie evidence that the two are linked.
The Higher Stakes
First of all, pedophile rings involving important individuals are
invariably international, as the Franklin case itself shows, and
as the revelations over the last year about a pedophile ring
centered in Australia's aptly named Department of Foreign
Affairs, has also demonstrated. Second, victim-witness Paul
Bonacci, all of whose other charges have been proven in spades,
has stated that he was flown to Europe aboard planes of the
Strategic Air Command, based at Omaha's Offutt Air Force Base.
The SAC base is tightly tied to the NATO headquarters in
Brussels, Belgium; NATO personnel were almost certainly involved
in the Belgian pedophile ring.
Third, ritualistic, Satanic activity, including human sacrifice,
was a "marker" for the Belgian events, just as it was for
Franklin. Fourth, the Belgian ring was involved in illegal arms
deals, some of which apparently aided the Contras. And last,
high-level Freemasons were prominent in both rings, and the Omaha
Masons had extensive connections into Europe.
The Role of Bill Colby
The final chapter of this second edition is titled "In Memoriam:
Bill Colby." The former CIA director was DeCamp's commanding
officer in Vietnam; the two had been close friends ever since,
and, as DeCamp now makes clear, Colby was a crucial figure in
pushing DeCamp to keep fighting in the Franklin case, against all
odds. Colby once told DeCamp, "This case is so much bigger than
you think. It goes to the highest levels; we have to keep
pulling the strings."
Colby also encouraged DeCamp to keep up his activity as a lawyer
for numerous figures in the "militias," which have come about due
to the wide circulation of his first book [sic]. Three of the
new chapters deal with the militias, with DeCamp's deep
involvement in investigating the unsolved bombing of the Oklahoma
federal building in April 1995, and with the U.S. Justice
Department's assassination of Midwest farmer activist Gordon
Kahl. DeCamp is now the lawyer for Gordon's son Yorie, and bases
his chilling account on Gordon's own never-released diary of his
final months, as well as Yorie's inside knowledge.
Colby constantly stressed that the militias, many of whose
members or sympathizers are people who shed blood for their
country in America's wars, are merely symptomatic of the fact
that, he suggested, three-quarters of the American population
hate their government, and that "lines of communication" must be
opened, or else tragedy will ensue.
All of this highlights Colby's own mysterious death by drowning
in April 1996. At the time, Colby was writing for the Strategic
Investment newsletter of London's Lord William Rees-Mogg, whose
crowd has been instrumental in trying to focus populist rage
against President Clinton, whom Colby strongly supported. Colby
told DeCamp not to believe a word he read in the newsletter, and,
furthermore, to be "very careful" about a Rees-Mogg minion,
Ambrose Evans-Pritchard, who had contacted DeCamp. Interestingly
enough, Evans-Pritchard has taken time out from trying to destroy
President Clinton, to write articles which savagely debunk the
existence of Satanic pedophile rings.
