Mark Lane, the Liberty Lobby, and the Jonestown Massacre (with video)

One of the reasons the American people are unable to resist the Zionist criminal network that controls the U.S. government and media is that the so-called patriotic movement is controlled by the same criminal network.

A supporter from Scotland often writes to me asking if I have heard Michael Piper's latest rant against me on the Republic Broadcasting Network.  Three years after I was fired from American Free Press where I had submitted articles for six years as an independent contractor, Piper, who is one of that paper's key figures, is still attacking me.  Why would Piper, who works for a newspaper that purports to be a publication for patriotic Americans, spend so much time attacking me and my 9-11 research?  Who is paying him and ordering him to do this?  To understand why Piper acts like a rabid dog requires a better understanding of what American Free Press really is -- and who is behind it. 

Having raised the subject of the Jewish lawyer/C.I.A. agent Mark Lane and his key role in controlling the Liberty Lobby in my essay "Why Are We Unable to Resist?", the subject of American Free Press (AFP) being a controlled-opposition outfit came up during my October 6 show with R.J. Hender on Republic Broadcasting Network.  A caller, "Daniel from Canada", asked if I would now agree that Michael Piper of AFP had been correct in his criticism of Eric Hufschmid.   Piper then attacked me on his program on RBN, which led to this email from a listener.

I heard a host on RBN railing against you tonight in an incredibly vile manner. [Michael] Collins Piper, I believe, was his name. He was so nasty that right away I found myself sympathizing with you. Anyway, after he got to the gist of his attacks and mentioned that you had accused Mark Lane of being an agent, I was completely won over to you. I have known since 1977 that he was an agent and spent a few years telling anyone who might be interested of that fact.  I would remind Collins Piper or anyone who doubts this is true, that Mr. Lane was in Jonestown (CIA mind control project) at the time of the massacre. He survived because he is very well connected to say the least.  Keep up the good work.

Mark Lane, the Jewish lawyer and C.I.A. agent who owns Liberty Lobby and American Free Press, was born in New York City in 1927, the son of Harry Arnold and Elizabeth Levin (Levin was changed to Lane in the 1920s).  Charles Garry, the principal lawyer for Jim Jones and his People's Temple movment, blamed Lane for the mass killing of 913 Americans in Jonestown in November 1978.  Lane reportedly went to Switzerland with the business manager of Jonestown shortly after the mass killing and emptied Jones' secret bank accounts.  The missing funds, estimated to be as much as $18 million, were never accounted for.

Michael Bernard Piper has worked for Mark Lane for many years.

It should be noted that Michael Piper, who brags about his Jewish ancestors and carries a portfolio from AIPAC, the Israeli lobby in Washington, lies a great deal and does so as a representative of Mark Lane and American Free Press.  This behaviour is typical of people who have the backing of an agency like the C.I.A. behind them.  Piper lies and slanders with impunity because he has what we call "a license to lie."  Piper has been attacking me since December 2001 when I was invited to speak about 9-11 in Moscow.  He continues his vicious attacks to this day.  He is obviously being paid to do so.  Why would a person like Piper be attacking me for my research on 9-11?  Why did Piper work to keep me from speaking in Moscow in December 2001 and again at the American Free Press conference held in Washington two weeks after I was attacked and tortured with a TASER by a three-man undercover tactical squad at my home near Chicago?

Jim Jones (left) and Charles Garry in Jonestown shortly before the mass killing of some 914 Americans.  Jones' "hand went to his mouth again and again" which his followers knew to be a sign that their leader was extremely nervous and stressed.  The reason Jone was so stressed was because of the lies he was being told by Mark Lane, who was working to fuel Jones' paranoia.  The lies and actions of Lane were seen by Garry as having directly triggered the mass killing in Jonestown.  Why would Lane, a former agent of U.S. Army intelligence who knew very well of Jones' paranoia and his plans to kill everyone if threatened, do something like that?  Why is Lane smiling with a devilish grin in this photo, taken on the eve of the massacre?

In a 1979 panel discussion on "Cults and the Law" at the California Bar Association's convention in Los Angeles, Mr. Charles Garry, who was the principal attorney for Jim Jones and his organization, accused Mark Lane of being responsible for the mass deaths.  He said Lane had played upon Jones' irrational fears of a United States Government plot against the Jones cult, provoking Mr. Jones into ordering the killings and suicides. "The person responsible was the catalyst," said Mr. Garry.  "He may not be legally responsible, but he is morally."

In September 1978, unbeknownst to Garry, Lane visited Jim Jones and spoke to the residents of Jonestown, supporting Jones' theories and drawing parallels between Martin Luther King, Jr. and Jim Jones. Lane held press conferences stating that "none of the charges" against the People's Temple "are accurate or true."  Lane fed Jones' fear and paranoia saying there was a "massive conspiracy" against the Temple by "intelligence organizations," naming the C.I.A., F.B.I., F.C.C., and even the U.S. Post Office. 

Garry, the principal lawyer for the Peoples' Temple, had been with Lane at Jonestown during the massacre.  According to Garry, Lane's devious duplicity was "the catalyst" that directly led to the massacre.  Garry said that Lane, "behind my back, proceeded to, beginning in September [1978], when he was there, to tell them they were being persecuted.  That the F.B.I. and the C.I.A., whatever, all the intelligence forces, were out to destroy them.  And that he himself was going to be the person who was going to stop all of that."  By reinforcing Jones' fears, Garry said, Lane contributed to an atmosphere in which the white night [pre-planned massacre/suicide] would occur.


Mark Lane visited Jonestown in September 1978, two months before Jim Jones took 913 of his followers to their gruesome end in the jungle of Guyana.  Lane lavished praise on the mind control settlement and its paranoid leader.  Lane told the mind-controlled subjects of Jonestown that they had found a better way of life in the jungle with Jones than they could have in the United States.  Lane speech to Jones and his followers from September 1978 was recorded and used in a 1981 National Public Radio (NPR) documentary about Jonestown entitled "Father Cares: The Last of Jonestown."  Anthony Lewis wrote about Lane's visit and support of the Jonestown mind control project in a New York Times article entitled "Nightmare Brought to Life" in April 1981:

Two months before the Rev. Jim Jones took his followers to their gruesome end in 1978, Jones had a visitor from the United States who praised the settlement and its paranoid leader.  People in the United States knew there had to be a better way of life, he said,  "and it is here."

As the disciples murmured and applauded, the visitor said he had travelled in Guyana on a 19th-century train, a relic of colonialism.   "And then you come here.  And you just don't come up to the 20th century.  You're in the future all of a sudden.  It's a big move.  And either this is the future or their won't be any."

It was Mark Lane speaking:  the lawyer-promoter who has so relentlessly exploited American assassinations.  We have come to know Lane over his years of grisly self-promotion.  But it is still something to hear his voice praising Jonestown - and Jim Jones giggling in the background and saying, "That's so true."


James Reston Jr. visited Jonestown shortly after the massacre and found some nine hundred hours worth of audio tapes made by Jones of his speeches and interviews.  Reston, who described Jones as "authentic evil" went on to write a book about Jonestown entitled Our Father Who Art in Hell.  These tapes were used to produce the NPR documentary that Anthony Lewis wrote about.  Lewis said that Lane's secret visit to Jonestown in September 1978 was a key factor of the "authentic evil":

Anthony Lewis of the New York Times wrote about Mark Lane's devilish character.  Lane's devious duplicity with Jim Jones is seen by those who were there as having led directly to the massacre.

Less than one month after the mass killing, Lane reportedly travelled to Switzerland with Terri Buford, the business manager of Jonestown, "to remove the secret Zurich assets," according to Robert Havel, spokesman for the U.S. Justice Department.  The secret funds, estimated to be as much as $18 million, were never accounted for.  Lane denied he had removed the money, saying he had spent 5 days in Paris.


A few years after the massacre in Jonestown, Lane became the lawyer of Willis A. Carto and the so-called patriotic and anti-Semitic Liberty Lobby.  The Liberty Lobby is patriotic in the same way that Jones and the People's Temple was a Christian church.  To understand the true nature and real mission of American Free Press we need to examine Mark Lane's key role in running the Liberty Lobby.  When we realize that Lane holds the key position as owner of the lobby and its assets, the strange actions of Michael Piper become understandable.  This explains Piper's bizarre attacks on me and his strange relationship with Willis A. Carto and his German-born wife, Elisabeth.  Piper is working for Mark Lane, not Willis Carto.

Mark Lane took over the assets of the Liberty Lobby in or around 1993, when the lobby was on the verge of bankruptcy.  This information came directly from L.T. Patterson, the publisher of Criminal Politics, who was sued by Lane in 1994 for some $10 million.  Patterson was able to fend off Lane, a Zionist wolf in sheep's clothing, and during the legal process learned that Lane owned the Liberty Lobby.  When I asked Willis A. Carto if this was true, he swore at me on the phone and slammed down the receiver.  Since my office at the lobby/newspaper was connected to Willis Carto's (from the summer of 2000) and having seen Lane, Carto, and Piper together on many occasions, I don't doubt for a minute that Patterson's information is true.  I have never seen anything that would contradict it.  This would mean that the so-called right-wing patriotic and anti-Semitic publications of the Liberty Lobby, such as the Spotlight and American Free Press, are actually controlled-opposition outfits controlled by the Zionist Jew, Mark Lane.  This explains all the bizarre behavior I observed at the paper during my six years of working with the lobby and its publications.

When I spoke with Suzanne, Lane's first wife, about his work in Army Intelligence, she joked that he was the head of the C.I.A.  Her joke is evidently not far from the truth.

Lane, it should be noted, was in U.S. Army intelligence in post-war Germany in 1945-47.  This is the branch that became the C.I.A. after the war.  Lane was paid some $5 million in legal fees by the Liberty Lobby, according to a veteran of the lobby.  None of this is widely known among the people who read and support American Free Press.  It is important because it shows how a Zionist Jew from the C.I.A. can actually control a movement that purports to be working for the American patriot audience.  Lane's controlling role at the Liberty Lobby should be kept in mind when viewing the photos from his visit to Jonestown.  Lane was a lawyer for Jim Jones and was present before, during, and after the mass killing.

November 3 - Bollyn on RBN

October 6, 2009

I was on R.J. Hender's "Morning Liberty Show" on Tuesday morning, October 6, and have been asked to be a guest on the first Tuesday of every month.  My next show with Hender will be on November 3.  Hender's show is on the Republic Broadcasting Network and airs from 7 to 9 a.m. (Central Time).  The call-in number is:  800-313-9443. 

The subject of the previous discussion was the nature of the Zionist (Jewish) deception, dominance, and control of the United States -- and the West.  The first discussion on September 29 was about defeating fear and deception.  We need to understand how this deception works -- and who is behind it -- in order to save our nations.  The United States is in dire straits, as are many other Western nations.  Last week a caller from Iceland asked about Peter Orszag's role in the bankrupting of the small Scandinavian state.  I tried to answer his question about what happened to Iceland's money.  Understanding where the money of Iceland went -- and Orszag's role in the destruction of the Icelandic economy -- will help to understand what happened to the U.S. economy last fall and winter during the trillion dollar bail-out, and what to expect in the future.

I also discussed the concepts of controlled opposition and how Zionist organizations seek to control the anti-war movement, political parties, and the patriotic and nationalist newspapers like American Free Press, which I wrote for until shortly after I was attacked and arrested by a three-man undercover tactical squad at my home in Hoffman Estates in mid-August 2006.  The patriotic media in the United States is foul with Zionist agents that seek to mislead the public and weaken the nationalist movement. 

Tyrants use fear and deception to rule.  These are the tools of the Devil, corrupt governments, and the Mossad.  Both are used on the American public by the un-elected U.S. government and the Zionist-controlled media.  The false-flag terror of 9-11, the fraudulent "War on Terror", the illegal wars in Afghanistan and Iraq, and the trillion dollar bail-out have all been forced on the American people using fear and deception.  The swine flu scare and the Zionist propaganda campaign against Iran are just more of the same. 


The struggle for Truth and good government is a spiritual battle that requires that we understand the propaganda of fear and deception and refuse to allow ourselves to affected by it.  Fear paralyzes the mind and prevents a person from taking constructive action.  The first thing for patriotic Americans to do is to reject the use of computerized voting systems and demand that their counties return to hand counted paper ballots that are tallied openly in front of the public on election day.  Electronic vote fraud is how our government has been hijacked.  Without a simple, accountable, and transparent method of voting we will be unable to regain our proper status as sovereign of a democratic republic.

We also discussed the importance of the discovery of super-Thermite in the dust of the World Trade Center -- and the refusal of the Zionist-controlled U.S. government or media to address it.  Why can't our elected officials address the scientific evidence of nano-Thermite in the dust of the demolished towers?  Why won't the news networks discuss this extremely important discovery?  Who put super-thermite in the World Trade Center towers?  Why aren't they asking these questions?

Answer:  Because this discovery disproves the government version of what happened on 9-11.

What does the scientific exposure of this pack of lies mean for the American people?  How long can a tyranny based on such blatant lies remain in power?  When will the American people start protesting to bring down the government?  When will public anger reach a critical mass?  How can a free nation remain free when the government and controlled media lie to the people in the face of scientific evidence that exposes their criminal deception?  A very real American revolution is growing in the United States and the lies about 9-11 are the root cause.

I also discussed some of the Israeli corporate connections between the war in Afghanistan and 9-11.  The war in Afghanistan is being fought so that a gas pipeline can be built to carry the immense gas reserves of Turkmenistan to market in India, China, and beyond.  Much of the gas of Turkmenistan is owned or controlled by Yosef A. Maiman, an Israeli veteran of the Mossad.  Maiman runs a Mossad business network through the Merhav Group of Companies, which he heads.  His business partners include Shabtai Shavit, the former head of the Mossad, Nimrod Novik, chief adviser to Shimon Peres, Eytan Barak, director of ICTS, the company that ran airport security on 9-11, Arnon Milchen, Ronald Lauder, and Rupert Murdoch.  Maiman's partners are all key players in the false-flag terror of 9-11.  Thousands of people were sacrificed on 9-11 in order to invade and occupy Afghanistan so a pipeline could be built to sell Israeli-owned gas from Turkmenistan.  The war in Afghanistan has nothing to do with terrorism.

Yosef A. Maiman, a Mossad agent, controls the immense gas reserves of Turkmenistan.

Maiman is connected to ICTS, the company that let the hijackers on the planes on 9-11.  The Israeli pipeline is Mossad's trillion dollar dream.  American boys are dying for Israeli profits.  Nothing else.  The Obama administration is lying through their teeth about Afghanistan.  Obama listens to Rahm Emanuel and sends Americans to die for Mossad criminals.  This is madness.

Rahm Emanuel, an Israeli and the son of a real terrorist assassin, instructs the new president in the Oval Office on January 21, 2009.  So, Mr. Emanuel, why are American boys really fighting in Afghanistan?  What is is that you, Michael Chertoff, Ehud Barak, Ehud Olmert, and Shimon Peres share in common -- with 9-11?

The show can be listened to live at: ...and will be archived on the RBN website for subscribers.


I was on the air with Pastor Eli James of Chicago on Sunday, September 13, from about 11:10 a.m. (Central Time) on his program The Voice of Christian Israel.  His radio podcasts are archived on his website.  His show with me is the latest show at the top of the archive page.  I appreciate being on Eli James' radio programs because he understands the Zionist hoax called the state of Israel.  Most Christians in the U.S. and Europe are completely deceived about the fraudulent claim to Jerusalem and Palestine made by Russian Khazar Jews who are clearly not Semitic people and are NOT of the faith, flesh, or promise of Abraham.  This fraud is supported by the Zionist-controlled media that lies to the American public about 9-11 and the illegal and brutal wars of aggression in Iraq and Afghanistan.  The outrageous fraud of the fake Israel is the hoax behind the central spiritual conflict of our time.  Jews, Christians, and Muslims are all victims of this massive fraud.  Many of the Israelis were forced to come to Israel by Zionist false-flag terrorism, in Iraq for example, where Israeli Mossad terrorists bombed Jewish synagogues in the late 1940s.

I was on the radio program "Fair and Balanced with Kevin Barrett" on September 1.  The one-hour discussion focused on my book Solving 9-11: The Deception that Changed the World and the discovery of super-thermite in the dust of the World Trade Center. 

The program is archived and can be listened to at:

Kevin Barrett is a 9-11 truth activist who has taught and lectured around the United States.  His website is:

 I described my thesis that Shimon Peres and his gang of nuclear criminals are the real architects behind the false-flag terror of 9-11.  Peres is the creator of Israel's illegal nuclear weapons arsenal and I suspect that it was at his "nuke" complex near Dimona in the Negev Desert that the nano-thermite used on 9-11 was designed.  It should be noted that Israel's illegal nucear arsenal was built by Peres, the current president of Israel and Capo di tutti capi, or head of the international Zionist crime gang based in Tel Aviv.  The super-thermite used on 9-11 was developed for years prior to September 11, 2001, at Israel's Nuclear Research Center - Negev near Dimona, and in affiliated Israeli universities and institutions.  Shimon Peres best friend, Arnon Milchan, is the owner of one of Israel's largest chemical companies. 

Arnon Milchan is also a friend and business partner of Rupert Murdoch, owner of News Corp. and Fox News, and Josef Maiman, the Mossadnik who controls the gas riches of Turkmenistan.  Building a pipeline to carry the Israeli-owned gas of Turkmenistan to India and China is the real strategy behind the war in Afghanistan.

Barrett asked me how such a small group can dominate and control such a large nation as the United States.  "They run the whole show," is how I would answer this question in one sentence.  They control the media that informs Americans, the law enforcement agencies, the courts, the money, and the political process.  This control is maintained by their exclusive secret Masonic society, B'nai B'rith, and their tribal allegiance to their collective.  The Rothschild family is a good example of how a Jewish family can dominate entire nations.  It is still doing so - after centuries.

Obtaining nano-size iron oxide and aluminum to create super-Thermite is no problem for an old weapons smuggler like Milchan, who smuggled nuclear triggers to Israel in the 1980s.  Peres' gang members have stolen plutonium from Pennsylvania and hijacked ship loads of uranium to build their nuclear arsenal and have never been held to account.  The Mossadniks who smuggled plutonium to Israel later tried to get the security contract for the World Trade Center, as I write about in my book.  Israeli scientists simply took American and European nano-technology for energetic films and tweaked them to suit their purpose to pulverize the World Trade Center on 9-11.

Super-Thermite was used to pulverize the Twin Towers.  The architects of this false-flag terror never thought that traces of their nano-thermite would be found in the dust.  They were wrong.  This advanced nano-composite explosive was evidently applied to the interior surfaces of the WTC as a thin film, like a primer or spray coating.  Remaining bi-layered chips of this super-thermite detonated at 430 degrees Celsius and released more energy per mass than any other known explosive used in demolition (Jones, 2009).  The only questions left to be answered are:  "Who made the stuff?" and "Who put it in the Twin Towers?"  We can say with a high degree of certainty that it was not Osama Bin Laden and Al Qaida.  There is no Arab state or army that has access to this level of nano-technology.  This means the government and media have been lying to us about 9-11 for 8 years.
