Ever War: President Lancer and the Honeytrap

“I am a woman who enjoys herself very much; sometimes I lose, sometimes I win.” -Mata Hari

In January 1963, the mentally disturbed owner of the Washington Post, Phillip Graham, startled a gathering of newspaper editors at the swank Arizona Biltmore Hotel by seizing the convention microphone and spinning a bizarre tale of a presidential affair all the while undressing. Wild as it may seem, the affair involved a far left socialite and allegations of sex and LSD used to manipulate the President of the United States to support a one world government.  Air Force One was quickly dispatched to shuttle a tranquilized Graham back to Washington in a straight jacket and the editors, who adored Kennedy, quickly hushed up the matter. By August 1963, a shotgun blast had blown Phillip's brains out and his wife, Katherine, was contesting his will. By November 1963,  a sniper's bullet had done likewise to John Kennedy. By October 1964, Mary Pinchot, the socialite in question, was murdered with one bullet through the heart and the other through the brain at close range.

He who knows not how to govern himself

Those who do not believe character is important in our elected politicians would do well to study this quote:

"He knows not how to rule a kingdom, that cannot manage a province; nor can he wield a province, that cannot order a city; nor he order a city, that knows not how to regulate a village; nor he a village, that cannot guide a family; nor can that man govern well a family that knows not how to govern himself; neither can any govern himself unless his reason be lord, will and appetite her vassals; nor can reason rule unless herself be ruled by God, and be obedient to Him."

- Hugo Grotius

It comes from a fascinating series of articles on Narcissism on the Global Politician web site posted by Sam Vaknin:

Narcissists in Positions of Authority
Victim reaction to Abuse by Narcissists and Psychopaths
Narcissists, Group Behavior, and Terrorism - Part I
Narcissists, Group Behavior, and Terrorism - Part II
Why Narcissists Cheat on their Spouses, Commit Adultery and have Extramarital Affairs and Liaisons

Being a diagnosed Psychopath with strong Narcissistic tendencies, whose condition led to a fraud conviction in Israel, Sam knows well the dangers this condition poses. It is his basic premise that Narcissists lack the socialisation and empathy required to prevent them from abusing others and from choosing right from wrong.

Eros the Destroyer

While in today's "if it feels good do it" culture any questioning of sexual mores is mocked, the ancients knew the dangers it posed. Even though they lacked the psychological terminology, their gods warned of the character flaws of serial womanizers:

"In 1998, President Clinton was impeached for actions he allegedly either took or ordered in an attempt to keep secret certain sexual improprieties he had committed with a White House intern (JohnQuincy Note: Clinton was actually not allegedly convicted by the House of Representatives of perjury to a grand jury and obstruction of justice and acquitted by the Senate on largely party line votes).. In the reams of analysis that attended the daily drama unfolding in the House of Representatives and then in the Senate trial, our culture's received wisdom and unspoken assumptions about sexuality were readily apparent. Defenders of the president dismissed the sexual activity as a private matter of no concern to the citizenry, with no implications for his political ability to lead the most powerful nation on earth. They dismissed Clinton's critics as repressed Puritans whose morbid fascination with his private behavior revealed their own unresolved sexual conflicts and fears. No one interpreted the affair the way an ancient Greek would have: as an example of the destructive power of Eros, a turbulent and potentially pernicious force that overthrows the mind and judgment and threatens the social and political orders that make human life possible (Thornton, 15)."

"We have come a long way from the Greek view of sex as a force of nature, volatile and destructive if left uncontrolled. Plato's idealization of sexuality is the distant starting point for the West's long fascination with sexual idealism, a debased version of which permeates our culture today in film, advertisement, supermarket romance, pop lyric, and television show. The Greeks knew better. They realized that the powerful beauty and pleasure of sex were dangerous, in need of controls and prohibitions. To them, sex could never be a "private" affair, of no concern to the larger political community; nor was it a mere "social construct" reflecting the structures of power and privilege, a contingent phenomenon to be restructured at will by social engineers. Rather, it was one of those absolute limits on human identity and aspiration, a powerful force of nature--and like all such forces, necessary for human survival yet requiring rational and social limitations. They would never have imagined undertaking the experiment we have embarked on: trivializing the power of Aphrodite--who, as she warns in the Hippolytus, destroys those who "think big" against her--by loosening and weakening those controls, such as marriage and shame. The results are all to obvious today, from talk-show sexual freaks to the sordid spectacle of casual sex and unleashed narcissism in the White House. Whether we can survive this novel experiment remains to be seen; but whatever its outcome, we cannot say the Greeks didn't warn us (15). "

The above quote comes from a section on the Self-Confident Personality Type on the PType web site and it reference a book on ancient Greek culture entitled,  Greek ways: how the Greeks created western civilization.

It should be noted that this book was written as a response to the current attack on Greek classical culture being conducted by elites on universities across the United States. To the ancient Greeks, we owe our Western culture. By perverting them, we pervert ourselves.


Lancer, the Secret Service codename for John F Kennedy, neatly encapsulated the womanizing Lancelot behind the Camelot facade.

Hitler's Consort - Inga Arvand

In November 1942, John F Kennedy began an affair with a consort of Hitlers, Inga Arvand.  What made this fraternization with a suspected German spy during war time all the more remarkable was that Kennedy was an Ensign in the Office of Naval Intelligence at the time. The only thing that kept Kennedy from being discharged from the navy was the fact that his father, Joe Kennedy, was ambassador to Great Britain at the time.

Perhaps it is not surprising that Kennedy got along so well with a Nazi supporter as his family supported Hitler too:

Mob Moll - Judith Exner

Since his father made his money bootlegging during Prohibition, it is probably not surprising that John F Kennedy carried on a long term affair with mob moll Judith Exner also a girlfriend of Sam Giancana. Sam is notorious for heading up the Chicago mob that was once led by Al Capone. The chicago mob sealed the election for John Kennedy through their control of the union vote. Sam once told Judith: "Listen to me honey, if it wasn't for me your boyfriend would not be in the White House."

Mentally Unstable - Marylin Monroe

This is a picture of Marilyn Monroe stripped of her glamor, laid out on a slab in the LA morgue. She had been used by both John and Robert Kennedy and then tossed aside. In the bedsheets next to her body, they found a scrap of paper with the White House phone number on it. While she had leftist ties and has been known to press John Kennedy on subject such as disarmament, Marilyn's mentally instability was her greatest threat. At the time of her death, she was threatening to blow the lid on her affairs with the Kennedy's. Please find attached the link to her FBI files with interesting bits about her leftist ties and her affair with the Kennedy brothers: FBI Monroe Files

In this excerpt, Marilyn is feeding the party line to the President:

Not only was her ex-husband, the play write, Arthur Miller, a known communist but she continued to associate with them after her divorce:

Marilyn was never a good subversive because she was attached to the two brothers. Unfortunately for her, she was in way over her head. She was dealing with two psychopaths that, once they had their fun, dumped  her when she was most vulnerable:

"The terms, "psychopathy", "sociopath" and others refer to individuals who look human but, in elemental ways, are not. They harbor a condition which cuts them off from us. Their automatic emotional reactions, foundational to limiting wrong behavior, do not exist. These individuals emulate compassion, concern, affection, kindness and love only to further their purposes. They feel no compunction about stealing, lying, or committing crimes to achieve their goals/" -Sociopaths - They Prey Upon Us

She died alone:

Maria Novotny - The Player

While most people know that the Profumo scandal brought down the British government, many do not know how close is came to destroying the United States. Since one cannot do justice to this story in a few sentences, allow me to summarize via the actual FBI files on the case, codenamed Bow Tie:

An interesting thread on this affair can be found at this link: John Profumo, Bobby Baker and JFK

The case originally centered on John Profumo, the UK War Minister. He was caught having an affair with a woman who was also dating a Soviet Naval Attache stationed in London:

The woman's name was Christine Keeler and her pimp was a Dr. Steven Ward:

The case was originally broken by an American named Thomas Corbally who reported the affair to the British Government. Whole novels could be written about Corbally who was a real life James Bond:

Thomas J. Corbally; businessman with air of mystery; 83

It turns out the Keeler and Davis had also visited the United States to ply their wares. They were associated in the United States with another pimp, Harry Towers who also pimped for Mariana Novotny:

Towers and Novotny were busted in a sting at the behest of the FBI:

Before they could be prosecuted, they both fled with obvious help from well connected individuals:

Suspiciously, Towers fled to Czechoslovakia then under the control of the Soviet Union:

Newspapers began reporting links between the Profumo scandal and the Towers/Novotny case.

They also allude to another prostitute with possible Communist Chinese links, Suzy Chan:

Newspapers then started dropping hints that the President of the United States, John F Kennedy was involved with both Mariana Novotny and Susy Chan:

It was at this point that the file began indicating a high level of interest in this story by John and Robert Kennedy and indicates threats were used by Robert Kennedy, the Attorney General to get the story killed:

Ellen Remetsch - Party Girl

At roughly the same time as the Novotny affair, Kennedy and half the Senate were also conducting a fling with Ellen Remetsch, an East German Spy, who was noted for her oral talents.

Below is a good summary of the case from Deep Politics and the Death of JFK By Peter Dale Scott

The scandal broke when the Senate initiated investigattions into Bobby Baker, an aide to Lyndon Johnson, on corruption charges related to the Quorum Club. Bobby plied Senators with booze and women at the club that he ran to gain influence. It is thought that he purposely used women with ties to the Soviet block as this made Senators vulnerable to blackmail. In the case of Rometsch, the East Germans were most likely able to insert a real spy into the ruse. It is also thought that Lyndon Johnson and J. Edgar Hoover were in on this scheme.

Here are some good links on the Bobby Baker story:
Investigations: Bobby's High Life
That High Living Baker Boy Scandalizes the Capital

When the investigation started closing in and news stories started to allude to his involvement,, John F Kennedy, desperate to save his presidency, began calling the FBI to plead with Hoover to get the story killed:

Eventually Hoover stepped in and killed the Senate investigation of the matter by threatening expose a whole slew of Senators for similar affairs:

Mary Pinchot Meyer -

In October 1961, Mary Pinchot, a 40 something divorcee, began an affair with John F Kennedy. She had always had a taste for chasing easy fame through men and had finally hooked the big one. With her leftist background and former CIA agent husband's tales of brainwashing, she was going to make a name for herself by manipulating the President of the United States toward her views via sex and LSD.

Below is an excellent source of information on this affair and other Kennedy information:  Spartacus - Kennedy Meyer

Here is a brief snippet from this site:

In October 1961, Mary began visiting John F. Kennedy in the White House. It was about this time she began an affair with the president. Mary told her friends, Ann and James Truitt, that she was keeping  a diary about the relationship.

In 1962 Mary made contact with Timothy Leary, the director of research projects at Harvard University. Leary supplied LSD to Mary who used it with Kennedy. Leary also claimed that Mary helped influence Kennedy's views on nuclear disarmament and rapprochement with Cuba. It was later discovered that the FBI was keeping a file on Mary. Later, James Angleton, head of counterintelligence at the CIA admitted that the agency was bugging Mary's telephone and bedroom during this period.

Kennedy aide, Meyer Feldman, claimed in an interview with Nina Burleigh that the president might have discussed substantial issues with her: "I think he might have thought more of her than some of the other women and discussed things that were on his mind, not just social gossip."

This book gives a fascinating insight into the affair: Mrs. Kennedy: The Missing History of the Kennedy Years By Barbara Leaming

Here it talks about Mary's obsession with easy fame:

Here it talks about her former husband's, a CIA agent, influence on her moral outlook:

And here it speaks of her seeking  fame by attempting to brainwash the president:

Oddly, Mary was found shot dead with one bullet to her heart and one to her brain less than a year after Kennedy;s assassination:


Surviving Infidelity said...

There certainly are a lot of strange circumstances around Mary Meyer. The relationship with Angleton and his role in JFK's assassination is a bizarre triangle. Through Bradley in and you have a really odd soup.

Yes, a soup that's missing a .38 snub-nose and a perp.
