    • La Tribuna (Honduras), "Ministerio cristiano trajo alegría a hijos de soldados de la 110 Brigada", 2009/12/27: "In an act that exalts the high command of the Armed Forces, which did not go unnoticed this beautiful celebration of Christmas, and together with the Christian ministry of the Reverend Jimmy Hughes, they brought joy to the children of the soldiers of the different military units of the zone. In this emotional Christmas meeting was present the General Commander of the Army, General Miguel Ángel Mejía Padgett, the Minister of Defense, Adolfo Lionel Sevilla, the commander of the 110th Infantry Brigade, Colonel Alcides Flores García, and the commanders of the organic units of The brigade. [...] But today is not about deepening the memories, but to thank the ministry of Jimmy Hughes because God has put in his heart, for nine years working for the Armed Forces, so we have always been in coordination with this ministry to share every year in this month that commemorates the birth of the Son of God bringing to our children joy and a message of the word of God, to the family of our soldiers who this year have been covered in glory because God gave them the honor to defend its democracy, the dignity and sovereignty of our country, for which we are proud that today they are here with their wives and their children. [...] The Minister of Defense, Adolfo Lionel Sevilla, recalled that God gives responsibility to every human being, the responsibility to serve and the best service that can be given is serving his people, at this moment we have a general commander of the Army who Not only is he the military guide of our institution, but he has become a moral guide, he has had the support of the Rev. Jimmy Hughes ministry to bring a little happiness and faith to each of the military units and always supported by the Association of Officers of our Army wives of whom as secretary in the Defense Office I am proud because I know the historical work they have done." - both Sevilla and García are said to be connected to the 2009 coup

Jimmy Hughes case

Philip Arthur Thompson

  • Betty Cloer murder (1971)
    • ...
    • Mountain Democrat, "Judge threatens to arrest woman on contempt charge" by Eric Laughlin, 2007/10/22: "The woman, Kate Dixon, is a journalist for the Website newsmakingnews.com and has frequently appeared in court in support of Thompson, who she says is being prosecuted for a crime he did not commit. [...] Dixon told the Mountain Democrat she thinks there is evidence that suggests another man killed Cloer, a man who is currently in state prison and due to testify for the prosecution. El Dorado County deputy district attorney Trish Kelliher has made attempts to conceal that man's name in open court to protect his identity in prison. But Dixon, a former attorney, came to court to fight the concealment, having filed a motion days earlier to unseal the identity of the man, who has been referred to only as John Doe. [...] The key ruling made by Wagoner was regarding a request made by Kelliher to exclude evidence obtained by the defense that suggests victim Cloer was working as an informant to law enforcement in the time leading up to her murder. Weiner argued that there is credible evidence from a number of independent sources suggesting such a relationship with officials. [...] Weiner argued: "John Doe has an extensive criminal history with regard to narcotics, including what we know to be a $250 a day heroin habit. If Cloer was working as a drug informant, that gives motive for suspects in cases with drugs to want to harm her." Kelliher responded that John Doe is a witness and will be able to respond to Weiner's accusations while he testifies. Though she acknowledged the fact that Cloer's family said she was an informant, she said that there is nothing in the records suggesting such a circumstance."

    • Mountain Democrat, "THOMPSON GUILTY OF MURDER" by Eric Laughlin, 2008/04/09: "While speaking to jurors after the reading of the verdict, lead detective Rick Fitzgerald said he believes Thompson's killing spree did not end after the Cloer homicide. 'There are at least eight to 10 others that we know of,' the cold case detective said. He did not elaborate on the other alleged murders, but there was an Oregon woman present throughout the trial who said she has reason to believe Thompson murdered her daughter in 1980. Dee Dee Kouns said evidence has been found linking Thompson and two other men to the murder of her daughter Valerie McDonald, an aspiring filmmaker who went missing in San Francisco. [...] 'At one point this murder [Betty Cloer] was thought to be linked to the Zodiac Killer,' Fitzgerald said. [...] During the conversation, Fitzgerald also elaborated on speculation regarding Thompson's possible connection to the federal government. Before the trial's start, there were reports that Thompson had worked as a covert CIA or FBI operative in the 1970s and '80s. 'There is, in fact, some information that suggests he was an operative who was given a lot of leeway,' Fitzgerald said. The Mountain Democrat had previously reported that Thompson had ties with anti-Cuban terrorist Luis Posada Carriles, believed to have been responsible for the 1976 bombing of a Cuban passenger jet that killed 73 people. No mention of any of this was made in the trial, but Thompson did testify as to having worked as a driver for state Sen. Randolph Collier and also for Alan May, who led the California Committee to Reelect Richard Nixon."
  • Ronald E. Winter murder (1975) - he was set to be a witness in a case involving weapons thefts from Mather Air Force Base
    • Long Beach Independent, "Patty confirmed in Sacramento at time of crimes", 1975/09/29: "[...] And authorities reportedly also are studying the possibility that an execution-style slaying in Sacramento on April 26 was committed with a gun found in one of the San Francisco houses used as SLA hideouts. Investigators said the AR15 rifle may have been the weapon used to kill Ronald E. Winter, 36, a narcotics user believed involved in illegal weapons sales who was shot 12 times in the chest and stomach. Philip A. Thompson of Sacramento was arrested a few days later in that shooting and faces trial next week, but no murder weapon ever was found. [...]"
    • Notre Dame Observer, "Hearst registered at college under alias", 1975/09/29: "Investigators said the AR 15 rifle may have been the weapon used to kill Ronald E. Winter, 36, a narcotics user believed involved in illegal weapons sales who was shot 12 times in the chest and stomach. Philip A. Thompson of Scaramento was arrested a few days later in that shooting and faces trial next week, but nor murder weapon was ever found."
    • EARONSGSK board, "Mather weapons trial 1976", 2015/03/28 (pages 1, 2, 3)
      • threetwozero: "Just got an email regarding Mather AFB and a trial in 1976 regarding the theft of weapons. As of yet, I haven't had any luck finding any articles. According to the email, there was a murder of an individual who was going to testify at this trial.
        I am very curious if this trial involved any individuals from either the 320th or 323rd. I'm also curious if the man killed was in the Air Force or a civilian."
      • drdoogie: "The murder victim was Ronald E. Winter and the killer was Philip Arthur Thompson.

        Winter was to testify in the weapons case. Winter was an informant for SCSD Detective Pat O'Neill. The homicide was investigated by Sac PD Detective Robbie Waters who later was elected Sac Sheriff and even later was elected to the Sacramento City Council."
      • pluckman56: "Was PAT charged and jailed for the Robert Winter murder. Could he have been the taller man at the Maggiore murders.? Many questions about this creep. Doe's he know who ear is?"
      • drdoogie: "[...] Winter's murder and Thompson's arrest occurred around April 1975. The Sacramento Bee article of Thompson's arrest happened the same day as the front page showed the iconic photo of the last helicopter leaving the US Embassy in Saigon for a perspective of timeframe.

        Thompson was probably in prison when the Maggoire murders occurred, but that is not confirmed. Thompson and John Gordon Abbott escaped from a work camp near Sonora and committed several robberies, but I have never been able to nail down the exact dates."
      • drdoogie: "Thompson's auto lot was on Alhambra and operated circa 1970 to 1975. He had a couple of partners, one of which also was involved in the rapes too. I think his name was something like "Masterson" - he testified against Thompson in the Cloer trial. His name would be in the news articles in the Mountain Democrat newspaper. [...]"
      • sammyt: "[...] Aside from his car lot, PAT also owned a medical supplies business - which should IMO be investigated - particularly when we consider the possible medical/hospital connections, and the theory that EAR possibly had access to medical records."
      • drdoogie: "I am developing a lot more info about Ronald Winter through contact with informants.

        Winter was not in the military, but seemed to be a spook himself - he was reportedly seen taking "hops" on military transports traveling between the U.S. and Southeast Asia. Winter was reportedly a licensed gun dealer and seemed to have run with a rather "sketchy" group of aquaintances, but according to my sources was not involved in criminal activity himself.

        I also now have the names of the victim of another murder linked to guns and drugs at Mather and the two people convicted of that murder (it may be this trial that Winter was scheduled to testify). I will hold off publishing that info until I can confirm the details via published media reports of the trial - once vetted, I will list names and info.

        As how this relates to EAR and the Maggoires, I am not sure. All of these events I am speaking of occurred prior to mid-1975 which (I believe) is before Brian transferred to Mather. How it MAY be related is if the people arrested circa 1975 were only part of the people involved and the gun-thefts continued on after the arrests by those who were not arrested, but (let me emphasize) this is just speculation as of now."
  • Valerie McDonald murder (1980) - also involved Michael Hennessey and John G. Abbott as Thompson's associates
  • Michael Riconosciuto website page on Phillip Arthur Thompson - has Ted Gunderson claim that PAT and his girlfriend Kathy Allen were identified as the high priest and high priestess of a Satanic cult in Fresno CA

Finders connection

  • NewsMakingNews articles on Richard Hamlin
  • Richard Hamlin statements
    • El Dorado County Sheriff's Office, "CASE NARRATIVE" for case EG0402413, 2004/02/27 (pages 1, 2, 3)
    • Open letter from Hamlin on 2005/04/14 - alleges that Siemer was a high-ranking Finders member and Temple of Set worshipper: "Renowned and well-respected investigative reporter, Virginia McCullough from NewsMakingNews.com has discovered the following: “Individuals who wish to remain unidentified have said that Dr. Sid Siemer is a high ranking member of a CIA sanctioned child molestation ring called "The Finders" and also a senior member of the Order of the Trapezoid, consisting of worshippers of the Temple of Set.” This of course is consistent with Michael Riconosciuto’s testimony that Dr. Siemer worked on illegal biological warfare research for the CIA and US Intelligence groups in Indio in 1982."
    • "Sidney Siemer & Satanic Ritual Abuse Conspiracy": "As part of my investigation, I am looking into the background of Sidney Richard Siemer, D.O.B. 2/2/33. He was a close business associate of George Wayne Reeder. Riconosciuto has named Siemer as being involved in the research and production of biological weapons in Indio in the 1980s. Siemer is a PhD in agriculture/biological chemicals. He was in military intelligence for the army during the Korean war. Relatives stated he was a covert operator with a high security clearance. He has spent a great deal of time in Germany. Reeder, who was head chemist with SKW and Siemer & Associates, did a lot of business with S. F. Siemer. SKW is a German company. Siemer has worked with companies that have worked with military and/or CIA: Abbott Laboratories, FMC, ICI of America, and W.R. Grace in Maryland. With Siemer & Associates he worked with Dupont and Bell. Siemer has lived in Fresno, CA since 1979. He has also lived in Corvallis Oregon, Leavenworth, Washington, and Columbia, Maryland."
    • "THE CASE AGAINST DR. SIDNEY SIEMER" - provides convincing independent corroboration of Siemer being a child molester
    • Hamlin's thoughts on the verdict against him published 2006/01/27
  • Rigorous Intuition posts
    • Initial thread on the Richard W. Hamlin case - claims a link between Dr. Siemer and Cabazon reservation in Indio CA
      • "Here's another little aside about the finders. I actually emailed Daniel Brandt about them because he'd written an article how they'd tried to horn in on his database program many years ago and were misrepresenting themselves (i.e. spying) to all kinds of groups www.astraeasweb.net/religion/cult.html (have to scroll down a ways to get to the part about Finders.) Well, the rumor is, that reporter JOINED them. I can't prove that, but I did track him down and he writes for an Asian, English language web news service and I think several Finders spent time in Asia and many are probably there. This unsigned post on an indymedia board is interesting, but no proof."
      • "Howard Mily turned out to be a false name. One more concrete lie that Susan told. Sid actually gave up the correct name when mocking Richard to the police!!! Mily is Howard's wife! Howard's name is: Howard LaRue. He may have gone by Howard Mily as pseudo, but I too, could not find anything on him. I think the whole high priestess thing may have been some kind of carrot they dangled in front of her or totally baloney. They could have simply used Satanic imagery and/or programming when keeping Susan in line. Think about it, when your memories come back and you start saying: "I was in a cult ..." Who's gonna believe ya. Not the Placerville police."
      • "No problem on the Finders thing. The Finders is one of many groups that Sid could possibly fit into. Ted G. and Michael R. seemed to think there was a connection there. In terms of cult names all that ever came out from Susan was: "A Satanic cult called: the Royal Bavarians." But if you look up Royal Bavarians you'll get a bunch of Oktoberfest types and of course the Illuminati stuff. As far as Sid's jobs, he worked for (just retired) his own company Siemer & Associates, but before that it's a who's who of controversial companies (at least in terms of those jobs popping up in connection with supposed conspiratal angles. So again, strange. I will try to compile a list. He's an expert on plants and plant DNA. A source said that Sid was actually working on biological weapons in Indio. The other job names came from Susan, other family members, family friends, and Sid himself. He doesn't deny working for any particular place, but Susan denied in court that Sid had worked in Indio, CA where supposedly her worst abuse took place--during the time of the whole Indian Cabazon Wackenhut controversy was going down. See: The Last Cirle and The Octopus. Again, when asked, Sid freely admitted that he had worked in Indio during the 80s. So even between Sid and Susan they can't keep their story straight."
      • "The retired minister doesn't sound like it's him. We did locate Howard LaRue. Gunderson even talked to him. I don't believe much came from that, but he was highly defensive, as were many of the people interviewed."
      • "On the subject of Susan’s retraction – there was an interesting 2002 psych study on child sexual abuse disclosure that concluded “the meaning of a retraction may vary” and that, when retractions are examined and evaluated, they can paradoxically add to the “probative value of earlier statements” (Brian Tully, “The Evaluation of Retractions in Sexual Abuse Cases”, Child Abuse Review, Vol 11: 94 – 102, 2002)"
      • "Susan Hamlin was the first person to mention Indio. That's rock solid. We have it in writing. She said her father took her to Indio, California and torturted her in a cold storage facility. When I looked into Sid and his friend Wayne Reeder, who was supposed to also be there at the time, as well as Howard Mily/LaRue--the Cabazon situation popped up. They were in Indio when the Octopus was going down. That's for sure. Apparently there are two Reeders, very hard to tell, and very hard to pin to Siemer. I contacted Gunderson early on because of his involvement with other cases. Gunderson informed Michael R. of the situation and Michael came forward with a lot of info that just sounds too on target to be completely true. However, how much is false and how much is true is certainly a common thread in all of this. I was already looking into Indio/Cabazon before I contacted Ted, but one of the very strange "coincidences" that happened was finding out that Gunderson was there in Indio, too, during the same time period. I had no idea he was there until after I contacted him! Very strange."
      • "The confession rehearsal theory is total bullshit. You have to keep in mind that Susan had to come up with an excuse for why she said everything she said--once she recanted in total. If you heard her confession about her molestation you would know she told the truth at that time. She wrote letters. She kept diaries. She talked about writing a book. She said prayer mantras. She was prescribed medicine for depression. She also told a church counselor about her sexual abuse from her father--4 years before any of this went down. The prosecution is going for an extortion angle. That's crap. Yeah, he was going to sue Sid. He also posted a flyer in Sid's neighborhood calling Sid a child molester. Once he heard that Sid had raped his wife Richard was not going to let up. He put the pressure on as hard as he could. I would say he was obsessed with Sid--and still is--not the actions of a planned shakedown. If the motive is money--why did Richard supposedly go to Granite Bay to kill Lisa Clum? Why did he vandalize the church? Why would he bring his own children into the molest story and why would Susan admit (even under terror) that she molested her own children? The handwriting expert said Susan letters are not forced but that the recant she gave the police does looked coerced."
    • Discussion about the Finders data dump pondering how much of the Hamlin case was accurate (pages 1, 2)
    • Rachel Begley also discusses the role of Dr. Siemer and the Finders on the Cabazon reservation: "As far as my story being tied... you'd be surprised. Johnny Gosch was a victim of the Finders, a group that had/has ties to the CIA. The finders ran a lot of their operations from the Cabazon reservation. There was human trafficking going on there and others that weren't involved turned a blind eye to those activties because Sid Siemer was there working for Wackenhut on the reservation doing biological weapons."
    • Rachel Begley says she can confirm Siemer's connection to Indio: "I have some detailed info on Siemer, but it's not in a format I can put up on my site just yet (I need to scan it). I have more coming too. Here's something interesting.. Susan at trial said that Siemer never worked in Indio.. but even Siemer himself says he did. Not to mention I can easily get proof of him working at the reservation. Something else interesting.. if you've seen Susans "FIRST" account where she told of the molestation and such, you'll see she talks about witnessing another girl being abused and getting her bones broke on a "peg board". We have reason to believe that warehouse where that took place was also on the reservation."

  • History of Siemer & Associates
  • Virginia McCullough, "IS PUPPET MASTER MICHAEL RICONOSCIUTO PULLING THE STRINGS IN THE BETTY CLOER MURDER TRIAL?", 2008/02/18 (more info on Siemer's alleged contacts)
    • Anita Langley's claim about what Riconosciuto told her concerning Siemer: "He also told me there were things happening to children that were beyond comprehension and that G. Wackenhut [founder and owner of Wackenhut] and friends were part of it." While it hasn't been confirmed that George Wackenhut himself was involved in child molestation, there have been multiple cases of child molestation by Wackenhut's prison guards, and the company's Belgian operatives are connected to the Dutroux affair through the Gladio network.
    • Anita Langley's claim that Riconosciuto's father testified about Siemer to a grand jury decades prior: "The same year, Paul Morasca was murdered after confronting John P Nichols about the illegal activities going on at the Cabazon reservation. Political prisoner Michael Riconosciuto was present during the confrontation; Dr. Sid Siemer was also present and made direct threats to Paul Morasca. Riconosciuto told Police Chief Sam Cross that Nichols was planning more murders, Nichols was caught attempting to hire contract killers and was sentenced to 5 years in jail as a consequence. At the Morasca grand jury murder investigation, Marshall Riconosciuto testified that Sid Siemer had used extortion tactics to force him to pay service contracts for John Nichols."
    • Virginia McCullouugh's alleged confirmation of Sid Siemer working at UC Davis: "On the other hand, I have confirmed Dr. Siemer's presence at UC Davis in plant and animal technology."
  • Involvement of Dr. Clyde Stormont (who Riconosciuto says was brought to the Cabazon reservation by Siemer)
  • Forum post by albion about UC Davis discusses biowarfare research and connects Siemer to that effort
  • Pacific Southwest Forest and Range Experiment Station, "Pesticide Spray Application, Behavior, And Assessment: Workshop Proceedings", 1973/03/01-02 - attended by both Sid Siemer of Abbott Laboratories in Fresno CA and Robert Stormont at the UC Davis Department of Agricultural Engineering
  • ophion1031 post on 2015/07/06 about William Thoresen III: "A source of mine has told me that the Thoresen's had a pilot who would fly guns to Chile for him. I have also read that Thoresen may have had a handler by the name of Dr. John Philip Nichols. Also worth noting is that Dr. Sid Siemer, also a pilot, knew the Thoresens and Nichols and also flew to Chile quite often. I do not know if any of this is true."

  • Leuren Moret, "Nuclear Weapons Stealth Takeover : 5 Admirals, U.C. Regents, Carlyle Group, and Rand", 2004/09: "Secretary of Defense Donald Rumsfeld has been proposing, funding, and building BioWeapons Level 3 and Level 4 labs at many places around the US – even on university campuses and in densely populated urban locations. In a BioWeapons Level 4 facility a single bacteria or virus is lethal.

    For what purpose are these labs being developed, and who will make the decisions on where BioWeapons created in these facilities will be used and on whom? More than 20 world-class microbiologists have been murdered since 2001, mostly in the US and the UK – nearly all were working on developing ethnic specific BioWeapons.

    Citizens around the US are frantically filing lawsuits to stop these labs on campuses and in communities where they live. Despite the opposition of residents living near UC Davis, where a BioWeapons Level 4 lab was planned with the support of the town Mayor, she suddenly reversed her position after a monkey escaped from a high security primate facility. When residents claimed that if UC Davis could not keep monkeys from escaping from their cages, they certainly could not guarantee that a single virus or bacteria would not escape from a test tube. The escaped monkey killed the project."
