The night Muhammad Ali defeated Sonny Liston in February of 1964, a group of black celebrities met in Ali’s hotel room. Powerful minds such as Ali, Malcolm X, Sam Cooke and Jim Brown were present, along with Sam Moore from Sam and Dave. It didn’t come out until years later, that the room was bugged.
"MODEL MAYHEM BLOG LINKED TO GANG RAPE & DISAPPEARANCES"
Two anti-human trafficking organizations have partnered together to help raise awareness on behalf of young women who have gone missing after creating modeling profiles on the networking site ModelMayhem.com.
Both organizations are calling for a federal investigation, calling the website "a common denominator" and "a red flag" in the disappearances.
Raven Cassidy Furlong of Denver, 17, (1st photo) is the latest Colorado teen to go missing who had a modeling profile with the site. Last Tuesday, Raven's stepmother received an unnervingly short phone call from the missing teen.
"Raven said she was safe, but that she was calling from someone else's phone and couldn't stay on the line and had to go," Lin Furlong told People Magazine. "I was relieved to hear her voice, but I'm terrified for her. She sounded scared and not like herself at all."
Missing 19-year-old Kara Nichols of Colorado Springs also had joined Model Mayhem and was last seen Oct. 9 before traveling to Denver for a modeling job.
"What causes us concern is that it is really uncharacteristic of her not to be in contact with her friends and family," Sgt. Joe Roybal told The Huffington Post in November.
“When you have a website that the Better Business Bureau rates with an ‘F’ in addition to numerous complaints, victims that lived to tell their stories and many missing women all with a profile on this same site, we believe a Federal Investigation is warranted,” said Michelle A. Bart, President and Co-founder of NWCAVE said in a news release. “We took these cases because the families felt hopeless and needed help being heard, we are praying someone report tips that can lead police to their daughters."
For Jillian Mourning the founder of All We Want Is Love-- Liberation of Victims Everywhere, partnering with NWCAVE on this is more personal.
When she was 19, Mourning connected with someone on Model Mayhem's website who wanted to be her manager and ended up becoming a victim of sex trafficking.
"He came into my room with three guys, and they [all] proceeded to rape me," said Mourning. "They took pictures of it, and would even show me pictures of things that I was doing, and videotaped the whole thing."
ALLEGATIONS: ( MURDERS, MOB, DRUG SMUGGLING, STRIPPER, WET OPS)
Joseph "Joey" Ippolito, Jr. is a drug smuggler and distributor known for his connections to celebrities and organized crime figures. His father, Joseph Ippolito, Sr., was employed by Meyer Lansky and Sam “the Plumber” DeCalvacante. Joey has 8 brothers and sisters. His brother Frankie smuggled marijuana and his brother Louie is a convict. Allegedly, A.C. Cowlings (2nd photo) was Ippolito's bodyguard. Ippolito's drug network was known as "The Combination." Ippolito, not mentioned during the trial, particularly since he was an associate of (death squad hit-man), whose M.O. is to torture their victims with a stiletto prior to slashing their throats. Ippolito at one time lived in Hallendale, FL, a mob housing subdivision which was protected by the mob. He also helped run drugs and wet ops for "the Combination."
When Ippolito "escaped" from prison, he was seen being driven away in a car driven by an African-American male. Who was this Negro? A logical suspect would be an African-American male who had been a bodyguard and driver of Ippolito, as well as a friend for up to 20 years. This perfectly matches the description of Al C. Cowlings, O.J. Simpson's car chase pal.
Simpson and Cowlings were allegedly connected to the arrest of Tracey Alice Hill, alias Amanda Armstrong, a 32 year-old stripper from Santa Monica, Hill was nabbed by police in Dunsmuir, a small town in northern California, with a suitcase containing 40 pounds of cocaine. Police also found a vial of pills in her purse prescribed to Al Cowlings. Donald Re, his attorney denied any connection to Ms. Hill, but the Contra Costa Times reported that Hill’s computerized address book listed the telephone numbers of both Cowlings and Simpson.
Nicole Simpson lived next door to Carl Colby (former CIA director Bill Colby's son).
Brett Cantor was the owner of a Hollywood nightclub called the "Dragonfly." Nicole Brown Simpson and Ron Goldman were regulars at the club. Cantor was murdered in a vicious knife attack nearly identical to the one that dispatched Goldman.
Keith Zlombowitch, director of operations at "Mezzaluna," and a former lover of Nicole Brown Simpson- disappeared. Another Mezzaluna employee had his car fire-bombed around the same time.
Robert Franchi (FBI informant) also claims that Ippolito had a "sit-down meeting" with O.J. Simpson two weeks before the murders.
"PEDOPHILIA UNDERWORLD WAS LAUNCHED IN 1955"
James A. Jack (author) was the first detective called in on a shocking triple murder in Chicago in October 1955.
Three boys from a nice North Side neighborhood disappeared after walking downtown to a Sunday night movie. Their nude, beaten bodies were found in a forest preserve.
Despite massive media attention and the efforts of several law-enforcement agencies, for weeks, then months, then years, police had no solid clues, and eventually different detectives entered the investigation.
Jack and several others kept abreast of developments. In the mid-1990s (40 years later) the case broke. Aging miscreants who were dubbed the "sleazy four" came forward to identify the pedophile--onetime stable hand Ken Hansen (kingpin)--who picked up the boys and killed them when they resisted molestation.
The perpetrator didn't work along; he was often accompanied by the sleazy four. During their reign, police uncovered numerous pedophilia sex crimes in Chicago. Hansen and his secret network continued to rape, molest and abuse children for many years.
It took 40 years to track down Ken Hansen (above) because he was insulated by his pedophilia network.
Hansen was convicted and sentenced to life in prison (without parole) but the conviction was reversed on appeal five years later. He was retried, convicted and sentenced to 200–300 years for each death.
Former child actor Ben Fellows (above) was whisked through VIP entrances at some of the capital’s most fashionable hang-outs; it was alluring and deeply addictive.
The drinks were always free and beautiful women would gyrate provocatively in a haze of flashing neon while all around him men – some married – would whisper suggestive comments in his ear before disappearing into the toilets to snort the obligatory line of cocaine.
Ben was just 13 when he arrived in London, against his parents’ wishes. Although he stayed with relatives he was out feasting on a nightly cocktail of champagne and cocaine, unwittingly being paraded like a glittering underage trophy.
Allegedly, his agent Sylvia Young pimped Fellows out to an A-list white actor who (vehemently denies he's gay), the actor passed on him and settled on another child actor. According to the child actor, the sex was violent and brutal.
According to Fellows: There's a lot of background on how the entertainment industry works and the exploitation of young actors, and how people hold dirt on each other to keep each other quiet. Young actors who love all the glamour will do 'pretty much whatever' to get a career. It's all about control.
Esther Rantzen invited him to a party in the New Forest. Drugs. Alcohol. Children. Adults. Sex.
A 13-year-old from an Australian soap was raped at an after show party in front of fifteen people. The perpetrator is named. No one did anything about it.
Ben told the Press a few of the seedier details of his encounters with these people. The newspapers reported none of it.
Allegedly, Andrew Lloyd Webber groomed him through multiple auditions, and then stuck his tongue down Ben's throat, grabbing Ben's genitals, when he was 15.

"WAS OVERSEAS SUPERSTAR BORN A MAN?" (LINKED TO DAVID BOWIE)
Despite modeling nude for Playboy Magazine in 1977 and Amanda Lear saying "they could see I was a woman like everybody else," it is widely rumored that Lear is either a transsexual or an intersexual because of her height (5'9), her masculine facial features and most of all, her exceptionally low baritone-voice. That Lear was born male is considered an open secret in Continental Europe although Lear herself has insisted that these rumors are the result of a planned publicity stunt engineered by a very famous man.
However, Britain's first publicly confessed transsexual April Ashley has since gone on record in her autobiography "April Ashley's Odyssey," to say that she worked with Lear in legendary Parisian drag show Carrousel Club in the late 1950s. According to Ashley, Lear was then a man in his early twenties, called Alain Tapp, performing in drag shows using the stage name Péki d'Oslo and a regular member of the Carrousel ensemble as they toured Germany, Scandinavia, Italy and South America.
Amanda Lear is a French singer, lyricist, painter, television presenter, actress and former model. From the mid-1970s to the early 1980s, she was a million-album-selling disco queen, mainly in Continental Europe and Scandinavia.
To date, she has sold over 25 million singles and 15 million albums worldwide. Lear is also a widely recognized gay icon.
Lear's origins are unclear, with the singer herself providing different information regarding her background and keeping her birth year secret even from her long-term husband. Contested facts include her birth date and place, her birth sex, names and nationalities of her parents and the location of her upbringing.
It is believed she spent her early childhood in Switzerland. Raised speaking French and English, she learned German, Spanish and Italian in her teens, languages she later was able to use in her professional life.
In early 1965 Lear was spotted by Catherine Harlé, the head of a modeling agency, who offered her a contract. Lear returned to Paris for her first modeling assignment as a means to finance her art studies, walking for rising star Paco Rabanne. Just as Harlé had predicted, Lear's looks were very much in demand. Soon after her debut Lear was photographed by Helmut Newton, Charles Paul Wilp and Antoine Giacomoni for magazines like Elle and Vogue. She modeled for fashion designers including Yves Saint Laurent and Coco Chanel in Paris and Mary Quant, Ossie Clark and Antony Price in London. After some time, Lear dropped out of art school to model full-time and went on to lead a bohemian and flamboyant life in the Swinging London of the Sixties. Lear's acquaintances at this time included The Beatles and fellow top models Twiggy, Pattie Boyd and Anita Pallenberg. She became a "stalwart of London's demimonde" an exotic name on the nightclub circuit and a regular fixture in the gossip columns.
While clubbing at Le Castel in Paris with Brian Jones of The Rolling Stones and the Guinness heir Tara Browne, Lear was introduced to the eccentric Spanish surrealist painter Salvador Dalí. The self-proclaimed enfant terrible in the world of art, at the time some 40 years her senior, was struck by Lear's looks and found a soul mate in her. She has since described their close and unconventional relationship as a "spiritual marriage" and remained Dalí's confidante, protégée and the closest friend through the next sixteen years. Lear would spend every summer with Dalí at his home at Port Lligat in Catalonia and accompany him and his wife on trips to Barcelona, Madrid, Paris and New York.
In Las Vegas she married bisexual French aristocrat Alain-Philippe Malagnac d'Argens de Villèle, the former lover and then adopted son of a diplomat and controversial gay novelist Roger Peyrefitte. The couple had first met just three weeks earlier at a fashionable Parisian discothèque Le Palace, a French equivalent of Studio 54.
Drama has always surrounded the group Shalamar.
Not only did Sydney Justin (first photo-far right in jeans) replace Howard Hewett in Shalamar, he also married Hewett's ex-fiancee Mori Molina (who was charged with intent to distribute cocaine in the 1980's, Molina served prison time).
After Molina was released from prison, she married Justin. She is currently a entrepreneur who has a line of dog and pet products called "Doogy."
Before Sydney Justin replaced Howard Hewett in Shalamar, he played pro ball with the Los Angeles Rams and in his rookie season, he played in the Super Bowl. A neck injury ended his career after four seasons.
After Shalamar disbanded, Sydney joined the Miracles. He's currently the lead singer (imitating Smokey Robinson).
Over a period of 200 years, 3 ships perished at the same location of the coast of Wales, on the same day (December 5th) and all 3 had only one survivor.
The 3 survivors all had the same name: Hugh Williams.
On December 5, 1664, a ship sunk in the Menai Strait, a stretch of water with tremendous tidal swings off the coast of Wales. All 81 passengers died, except one. His name was Hugh Williams.
On December 5, 1785, another ship sunk in the Menai Strait, with again everyone aboard dying except for one man…named Hugh Williams.
And then again, on December 5, 1820, yet another ship sunk in the Menai Strait. Only one man survived, and he was named Hugh Williams.
The scope of the coincidence is staggering.
Another source actually references two other British shipwrecks with the lone survivors bearing the name Hugh Williams, except they weren’t on December 5. In one of those wrecks, there were actually two survivors, an uncle and nephew, and both were named Hugh Williams.

Florence LaRue (far right) remembers when Frank Sinatra presented her group, the 5th Dimension, with a gold record for their album The Age of Aquarius. “We were performing with him at Caesar’s Palace, and the people wanted him to present it to us onstage,” she says. “But they were afraid to ask him! Because of his reputation.”
Florence said don’t be silly, I’ll ask him. As the record company bigwigs trembled at the very thought of the famously touchy Sinatra, she walked down the hall to the great man’s dressing room. “And I asked him, and he said ‘Of course!’” Sinatra even stayed around to pose for pictures with the 5th Dimension and their award. She has one on the wall of her office, Sinatra in his tuxedo, the group members resplendent in their multi–colored stage uniforms.
“He was always very warm and loving,” LaRue says. “He would always come to me before the show with a kiss on the cheek, and say ‘Have a good show.’ He was really a wonderful man.”
The 5th Dimension were a group that brought together young and old, black and white, pop and jazz, great songwriting and Top 40. They were showbiz, but they were hip, too. And they made a pussycat out of Sinatra, who liked them so much they became his permanent opening act. He toured the world with them, featured them on his TV specials and never forgot to give Florence that nightly good–luck smooch.
The group had major hits, including “Up, Up and Away,” “Wedding Bell Blues,” “One Less Bell to Answer,” and “Aquarius/Let the Sunshine In,” which was one of the biggest singles of the year 1969. How big? It spent more weeks at Number One (six) than the Beatles’ “Get Back” OR the Rolling Stones’ “Honky Tonk Women.”
Lamonte McLemore (pictured above-back row-left) is central to the story of the 5th Dimension. He was born in St. Louis and, as a kid, hated everything but baseball. “I wanted to play ball more than anything else in the world,” McLemore says, “and I was so poor growing up that I saved all my money and bought this Marty Marion shortstop glove. I got it at night, and the next day I was knockin’ on all the kids’ doors. And it was a monsoon; it was raining so hard the kids said ‘Are you crazy?’ I didn’t care about the rain.”
One day Lamonte’s grandmother, exasperated, asked him to name the three things he loved; after baseball, there was really nothing else, so he thought fast and told her, um, photography and music. “I hated singing with a passion,” he laughs. “My folks used to beat me because I wouldn’t join the church choir. All I wanted to do was play baseball and be a gangster.”
(Eventually, he did become a photographer—he was the first black staff shooter for Harper’s Bazaar—and he was signed to the Los Angeles Dodgers system as an AA league pitcher.)
But music, ironically, was to be his life’s work. Back home in St. Louis, teenage Lamonte was recruited to sing bass in a street corner group, and that attracted girls. He figured OK, I really didn’t lie to my grandmother after all.
Group members included Ron Townson (back row-far right), a singing friend (of Lamont's) from St. Louis, and a 19–year–old UCLA business major named Marilyn McCoo, the daughter of two prominent physicians. McLemore had photographed the Miss Bronze California Pageant in 1964, when Marilyn won the talent segment and the title of “Miss Congeniality.”
Although she worked briefly as a social caseworker in L.A., McCoo had a four–octave range, and she had designs on a career as a pop diva.
During a magazine photo shoot, Lamonte mentioned to Ray Charles that he, the photographer, had a group, would Mr. Charles care to check it out?
Charles said sure, son, let’s hear what you’ve got, and the 5th Dimension dutifully auditioned; impressed, Brother Ray put them on the bill as part of the Ray Charles Revue. They toured the country, and quit the show six months later following a money dispute.
Charles produced a single, “Lonesome Mood,” for the occasion. It was released on his own label, Tangerine Records.
McLemore says Charles was fun to be around. “When he comes in, they always hand him something, a book or something just to hold,” he recalls. “We were getting ready to sing, and he had this book, and it was upside down. So we couldn’t hardly sing, we were about to laugh.
“Then he turned the book around, and we all were kinda astonished: Wait a minute….”
Ron’s family was in the catering business. One night at a job at the Los Angeles home of singer Dorothy Dandridge, Ron—in his white catering uniform—was recognized by party guest Nat “King” Cole, a family friend from St. Louis. Cole asked him to sing for Dandridge and her visitors, and after Ron reluctantly agreed he was hired to go on the road with both Dandridge and Cole. Dandridge got him into the chorus for the 1959 movie version of “Porgy and Bess.”
Florence LaRue was later added to the group. She took the talent prize in the Miss Bronze California pageant that year (she sang “April in Paris,” impressing judge Eartha Kitt, Florence says, because she did it entirely in French). Florence had received her teaching certificate from Cal State, and was working at Grant Elementary School in Hollywood.
The final ingredient was Billy Davis Jr. who had a heck of a voice; he could wail like Otis Redding and plead like Levi Stubbs of the Four Tops. Billy, who’d fronted several groups in Missouri and had even cut a couple of singles (on the Epsom label), had his sights set on a career in rhythm ‘n’ blues and had already auditioned for Motown in L.A.
Lamont remembers that the Mamas and Papas came down to the studio, “glad the little black group was getting off the ground … then we got to be bigger than them, and we didn’t see ‘em no more.”
By July, “Up, Up and Away” had reached the Number 7 slot in the United States; the album—which included four other Jimmy Webb songs—hit Number 8 in August and went gold.
“I was still working as a youth job developer in Watts when the single hit,” Marilyn says. “I remember thinking that if I could make $400 a month, I could pay my rent and take care of the bills, and have a little left over.”
No one has forgotten how great they were, how pure and joyful and harmonious they blended in that original Age of Aquarius. It’s best that way. Once or twice a year, all five get together to sing as The Original 5th Dimension. They’ve been doing the reunion shows since 1991.
“I enjoy to this day to get up and do all of those songs, because it’s a part of my history,” Billy says. “I still feel the same joy that I felt during the first 10 years of the group. It’s a magic that happens.”
“I didn’t think it would ever happen,” Marilyn says. “Well, you grow up, and you start to see the world as it is. We were friends; we had some wonderful experiences together. We have a history here.”
Ron Townsend died in 2001.
10-YEAR-OLD BLACK GIRL SUFFERED FROM THE STIGMATA: (WOUNDS FROM THE CROSS)
The stigmata refers to the five wounds that were inflicted on Jesus' body during crucifixion, namely wounds to his wrists, his shins, his head (crown of thorns) and his heart.
A 10-year-old black girl (name withheld) had the same wounds in the same exact locations on her body.
According to doctors, this was NOT a hoax!
A famous American stigmatic was a ten-year-old black girl whose family were members of a Baptist church. In 1972 she exhibited daily bleeding (up to six times per day) from her left palm, although she did not experience any pain.
During the following two week period, bleeding from the other wounds became evident even though there were no physical marks on her skin.
This phenomenon occurred near Easter and on Good Friday she experienced bleeding from all of the traditional stigmata sites, and then the bleeding ceased.
This child had reported hearing voices calling her to pray for the healing of certain individuals. She was also noted for a keen awareness of the suffering of Christ.
Doctor: Our closest possible scrutiny made it unlikely that these lesions were self-induced. The child, who is intensely religious, comes from a large, lower-middle class family in a large city. Her physical examination results were entirely normal.
This child is now a 51-year-old woman and her whereabouts are currently unknown.
"THE UNEXPLAINED" (6-YEAR-OLD GIVES BIRTH-NEVER HAD MENSTRUATION)
We all know about Lina Medina being the youngest mother in U.S. history at five years old but there were two other girls who became pregnant at six years old; their cases are well documented on the internet. Strangely, one of these girls never had a menstruation.
1. June 7, 1932: The 6-year-old known only as "H." gave birth by cesarean section to a girl weighing 4.19 lb (1.90 kg) at Victoria Zanana Hospital in Delhi. She was initially admitted for what was thought to be an abdominal tumor, as she complained of localized pain in her lower abdomen. Her father said she was 7, but civic records gave her birth date as October 11, 1925, making her 6 years and 7 months old at the time of labor. She had never menstruated and her breasts were still far from being fully developed, yet she was able to breast feed her child for 9 months. Father unknown.
2. August 19, 1934: Yelizaveta "Liza" Gryshchenko, who had celebrated her 6th birthday several days earlier, gave birth with the aid of forceps and retractors in Kharkov, Ukraine, after being impregnated by her 69-year-old maternal grandfather, a former sailor. Gryshchenko's parents did not want the obstetricians to perform a cesarean section, as it was considered dangerous at the time. The 3 kg (6.6 lb), 52 cm (20 in) infant girl died during labor due to an early placental tear; she had been born at full term and apparently of good constitution, and, according to doctors, would have survived if she had been extracted more quickly, reanimated, and oxygenated. After the incident, the family emigrated to Vladivostok, taking the girl's grandfather with them.
"THE FACE OF PURE EVIL!"
During the First Liberian Civil War, General Joshua Blahyi (above-center) was a Liberian warlord. Blahyi’s eccentric acts of violence and satanic rituals have made him the focus of many published articles. After the end of the First Liberian Civil War, Joshua Blahyi was interviewed by various media outlets and produced some chilling quotes.
At age 11, Blahyi claims that the devil called him on the telephone and commanded him to perform human sacrifices. After the Liberian conflict began, in the late 1980s, he was known to lead troops into battle completely naked, with the exception of his shoes and gun. Apparently, he believed that his nakedness was a source of protection from bullets.
Blahyi would regularly sacrifice a victim before entering battle. When asked about the sacrifices, he is quoted as saying, “Usually it was a small child, someone whose fresh blood would satisfy the devil. Sometimes I would enter the water where children were playing. I would dive under the water, grab one, carry him under and break his neck. Sometimes I’d cause accidents. Sometimes I’d just slaughter them.” Blahyi was asked to give an account of his typical battle, “So, before leading my troops into battle, we would get drunk and drugged up, sacrifice a local teenager, drink their blood, then strip down to our shoes and go into battle wearing colorful wigs and carrying dainty purses we’d looted from civilians. We’d slaughter anyone we saw, chop their heads off and use them as soccer balls. We were nude, fearless, drunk and homicidal.
We killed hundreds of people, so many I lost count.”
Blahyi claims that he had regular conversations with the devil from the age of 11 to 25. He has suggested that during the war he had “special powers," and magical invisibility. Joshua Blahyi would recruit teenagers to fight, and, unlike anything I have heard before, his troops would enter battle wearing women’s clothing.
In January of 2008, Blahyi admitted to the cannibalism of a human heart. Blahyi’s rampage ended in 1996, when the Civil War in Liberia was over. In 1997, Joshua Blahyi repented his sins and devoted his life to the Church. He became a preacher, got married and has three children.
To this day, Blahyi lives in Liberia and insists that he cannot be held responsible for his satanic past. Between the years 1980 and 1996, Blahyi and his men were responsible for the deaths of more than 20,000 people.
(BRUTAL SLAVE OWNER WAS HUNG FOR KILLING SO MANY SLAVES)
Arthur William Hodge (1763–1811) was a plantation owner, member of the Council and Legislative Assembly, and slave owner who was hanged on 8 May 1811, for the murder of one of his slaves (other slave murders were uncovered). He was the first slave owner to be executed for the murder of a slave considered his property, and perhaps the first white person to have been lawfully executed for the killing of a slave.
Oddly, he was described as a man of great accomplishments and elegant manners.
In 1811, Hodge was indicted for the murder of a single male slave.
During the trial evidence was presented that Hodge caused the deaths of numerous slaves on his estate, including: Slaves were often whipped to death. Two slaves named Margaret and Else died after boiling water was poured down their throats. Evidence was presented that Hodge was cruel to child slaves, including his own offspring: Bella, a small mulatto girl of about 8 years of age, who was his offspring by his slave, Peggy; and (various other slave children) had their heads held under water until they lost consciousness, he then revived them, and repeated the process.
Hodge previously had over 100 healthy negro slaves on his plantation, but when his wife died there were no longer enough slaves to dig a grave because he had depleted his slaves via murder.
This was an unprecedented trial, where a white man was proven guilty for the murder of a black man and sentenced to death." While the trial and execution may have shocked the slave owning communities in the British West Indies, other slave owners continued their brutality.
On the appointed day of his execution, he addressed certain individuals whom he singled out in the crowd, and asked them to forgive him for injuries which they had received at his hands. He then addressed the crowd generally and asked them to forgive him. Then Arthur Hodge was hanged.
His body was then taken to his estate and he was buried.
MILITARY: TORTURE/HUMAN EXPERIMENT/GUINEA PIG?"
His captors kept James Robert Thornwell awake, and alternately, hot or cold, they denied him food and water. They verbally degraded him and made him stand in stress positions.
They then told him they wanted to inject him with sodium pentothal (LSD) because they had not tried it on Negroes before.
Thornwell nearly lost his mind.
Two months later, he was diagnosed by an army doctor as an schizoid personality.
He was discharged for unsuitability and the army had the audacity to try and court martial him.
The proceedings were halted when his attorney requested that Thornwell's interrogators be present to explain what they had done to him.
One June night in 1961 a U.S. Army counterintelligence team offered Private James Thornwell a drink of water, then bundled him off for a ride outside Orleans, France. Thornwell, a 23-year-old GI stationed at the nearby Army Communications Center, was regarded as the principal suspect in the theft of over 100 classified military documents.
For two months authorities had been pressing Thornwell to confess to the theft, resorting to lie detectors, hypnosis, truth serum and, he claims, even to threats and bribe attempts. He requested but was denied legal counsel. On that night the exasperated Army officials drove Thornwell to an empty mill outside town and questioned him. As the evening wore on, eyewitnesses report, Thornwell nodded out, perspired heavily, went into muscular spasms, drooled uncontrollably and bruised himself falling to the floor. For weeks thereafter, he remembers feeling sick. "It was like I had a hole inside my head and it was burning its way out," he recalls. "It was changing me, but I didn't know how." What Thornwell didn't realize at the time was that the seemingly innocent glass of "water" contained LSD and almost destroyed his mind.
It took the ex-private almost two decades—and endless red tape—to discover for himself what had happened. A few months after that night in the mill, the Army let Thornwell go with a general discharge (meaning neither honorable nor dishonorable). He remained confused, upset and unable to comprehend what was happening to him. "I was in a heavy mental state," he says. "I thought that would go away after I got out of the service, but it didn't." Thornwell moved from his native South Carolina to California, drifted through a series of jobs—most of which he quit in frustration at his inability to adjust—and married and divorced twice. Thornwell knew that his problems were somehow connected to the events of that rainy spring evening in the French countryside, but he didn't know how. "Getting information became an obsession," he reflects.
His break came in 1976 when he received a letter informing him that the Surgeon-General of the Army was trying to track down participants in an old military chemical experiment. Thornwell turned the letter over to Oakland lawyer Harvey Kletz, along with the story of his night at the mill. "I thought it was a fabrication," Kletz says, "something from someone not all there." Still, the attorney wrote to the Army on Thornwell's behalf. Two years later he learned the truth about the massive dose of LSD.
A truck driver's son from Boiling Springs, S.C., Thornwell dropped out of South Carolina State after using his scholarship money to finance an abortion for a young woman he made pregnant. He signed up for the Army, made PFC quickly—and just as quickly was busted back to E-2. "Everybody said I had a superior attitude," he recalls defiantly. "Slow-thinking people bore me, and in the Army, I was ahead of the others mentally. As my father told me, nobody loves a smart black man but his parents."
Thornwell admits that he was off-base (illegally) with a Frenchwoman part of the night the documents were stolen, and assumes that his absence, his insolence and his race made him the prime focus of the investigation. "The documents that Harvey Kletz and I obtained show that the Army people thought blacks had a way of lying in lie detector tests," he declares. "The papers show that the Army said black people can fake it under truth serum." The assumption that Thornwell must be lying led the Army to give him LSD—a drug it then thought might force out the truth. Ironically, the "experiment" led the Army to drop the investigation, and the real culprit was never caught.
President Carter signed a special bill that will give Thornwell $625,000 in reparation for his suffering. But as Marin County psychiatrist Martin Blinder, who examined him, pointed out, "Thornwell was quite a mess." The ex-PFC himself admits to problems. "To this very day I get caught in flashbacks," says Thornwell. "I never know when I'm going to be back in that ghoulish mill."
James Thornwell died in 1984.
(1969 NOVEL CORRECTLY PREDICTED CURRENT DAY EVENTS)
The Illuminati cards accurately predicted the future but so does the novel "Stand on Zanzibar," by John Brunner. This book is set in 2010 and correctly predicts political & economical events and technology progress (present day).
This book even has a passage that includes a popular leader named President Obomi in 2010. Keep in mind, this book was published 44 years ago.
(1) Random acts of violence by crazy individuals, often taking place at schools, plague society (school massacres).

George Benson: “Love songs are one of the great essences of life, the only thing that’s lasting. Barry White spiced up the scene with an approach to music that was quite different to anyone else’s, but I’m a little more…” he bares a rack of white teeth, “… sober. Luther and I would joke about how many children the two of us were partly responsible for in this world, but I’ll always draw the line if someone writes something too sexually suggestive for me,” he says. “I just don’t feel I have to do that. Lionel Ritchie sang three songs about a lady and they were all smashes.”
Benson is the father of seven who has been married to the same woman, Johnnie, for 45 years – he's also a religious man, who conducts bible studies, and he's always objected to lubricious lyrics. “Although imagine me turning up at someone’s door to preach and they’ve got me singing in the background, telling them to 'do it to me one more time’,” he grins.
In the Fifties and Sixties, when jazz moved from good-time party music to high art, Charlie Bird Parker, one of the guitarist’s early heroes, was already making industry heads uneasy. “Here was a guy who, they claimed, 'was going to destroy jazz’. And, in fact, he did: jazz as they knew it. He changed the parameters, proved that African Americans could be a lot more intellectual than we had been given credit for, that we weren’t just folk who relied on our instincts and thumped along to the gospel vibe.
Miles Davis, who employed Benson in the Sixties on the album "Miles in the Sky," didn’t attempt to seek love from any quarter. “I always knew when to leave, because I’d see him getting fired up over autograph hunters who would come up and say things like, 'Do you remember 25 years ago when you did that thing?’ Only Miles didn’t want to be reminded of what he did 25 years ago, so he’d just shout 'shut the ---- up’ and refuse to sign the autograph.”
Michael Jackson, with whom he later became close, wasn’t fortunate enough to have his ascent to stardom tempered in the same way. “Where Michael came from was incredibly awful and I guess the family were trying to escape it and had all the potential right there. I have to give my mother credit for taking me out of the game when I was 11 years old. I was poor and raggedy, but I went back to school and got a little bit of an education and when I came out I got back into music.”
It wasn’t until 1978, having recorded a number of albums with jazz heavyweights and achieved financial success, that Benson got to know Jackson. “We met for the first time in London. We were both studying to be ministers [Jackson was a Jehovah’s Witness at the time] but from that point on the world just ate him up. I did feel sorry for Michael: apart from the adoration, he wasn’t getting the benefits of being famous.”
When Michael was at No 2 on the charts, he was making just as much money as he would have been at No 1, but as soon as he got there, the whole world came down.
"MONSTER-HUMAN EXPERIMENTS ON SLAVE WOMEN"
J. Marion Sims used black slave women as guinea pigs by performing "experimental" surgeries on them (several experiments per slave). He often left tears in their vagina's and bladders; including other mutilations. These women suffered terribly and were scarred for life.
Women with vesicovaginal fistulas – usually the result of traumatic labor – were, in those days, social outcasts. No cure was available.
In Montgomery, Alabama, J. Marion Sims experimented on three Alabamian women who were held captive as slaves – Anarcha, Betsy, and Lucy – who were suffering from fistula problems, to develop new techniques to repair this condition and to be used as experiments for medical research.
From 1845 to 1849 he experimented on them, operating on Anarcha 30 times (it remains unclear if this was necessary or if Sims did it deliberately).
Although anesthesia had recently become available, Sims did not use any anesthetic during his procedures on Anarcha, Betsy, and Lucy. Sims felt the operations weren't painful enough to justify the trouble of using anesthesia (he was wrong).
After the extensive experiments and difficulties, Sims finally perfected his technique (after performing numerous mutilations on several other slave women).
It was only after the success of the early experiments on the slaves that Sims attempted the procedure on Caucasian women with fistulas, this time with anesthesia.
Doris Day continues to deny relationships with black celebrities: Maury Wills, Elgin Baylor and Sly Stone but she can't deny that her father married an African American woman named Luvenia Williams in the segregated (Jim Crow) 60's. The couple received death threats on a daily basis and Hollywood was terrified that the interracial marriage would affect Doris Day's career.
Doris Day's father William Bennett Kappelhoof (2nd & 3rd photos) allegedly disliked blacks but he fell in love and married a black woman.
In 1964, Kappelhoof (a tavern owner) filed for divorce, citing gross neglect. The couple reunited with Kappelhoof stating, "It was a misunderstanding, we're back together for life!"
