Russian Spy Mission 10 Arrested

By Renee

Suspects accused of being secret agents of the Russian government in Federal Court . These ten are secret agents of Russia’s intelligence organ, the SVR, with the goal of penetrating U.S. government policymaking circles.

In this courtroom sketch, Anna Chapman, left, Vicky Pelaez, second from left, the defendant known as “Richard Murphy”, center, the defendant known as “Cynthia Murphy”, second from right, and the defendant known as “Juan Lazaro”, far right, are seen in Manhattan federal court in New York, Monday, June 28, 2010.

Russia is a place that young girls dream of seeing. Troika’s, snow, fur capes and romantic castles. The things fairy tales and romance novels are made of. The problem with fairy tales is that they are fiction, and real life is different. I have covered the royals of Russia  in Sandcastles, but today’s story is less glamor and more secret agent. I will connect this as it comes out.

  1. You guys weren’t kidding when you referred to that ?eznew guy as a lookalike — now I can’t find the link you posted renee.

    Back to the 2009 Freeper page in which they discussed roman 1992.
    Alonso (pictured next to roman) does look like sadik/siddiq. Either they were there, or the name dropping articles may have been some type of communication, or both — again, interesting that debrework replaced o for the chicago paper.
    I was unable to pull up the other papers — Ft. Worth Star Telegram; The Record.

  2. Nikolai Ivanovich Yezhov (sometimes known as Ezhov; Russian: Никола́й Иванович Ежо́в; May 1, 1895 – February 4, 1940) was a senior figure in the NKVD (the Soviet public and secret police) during the period of the Great Purge. His reign is sometimes known as “Yezhovshchina” (Russian: Ежовщина), “The Yezhov era”; also “The Hedgehog Era,” since the word Yezh (Russian: Еж) means hedgehog.[3]

    Early life and career
    Little reliable information is available about Yezhov’s family and early years. The name Nikolai Yezhov itself is the name of a character from Maxim Gorky’s novel Foma Gordeyev, and as such may have been an adopted revolutionary pseudonym, a common practice among Soviet revolutionaries which would help to evade tsarist prosecution. After the success of the Bolshevik revolution, many early participants such as Lenin and Stalin would continue to be known by their nicknames.

    Yezhov was born in Saint Petersburg, according to his official Soviet biography, though other records[specify] point to the possibility that he was born in Marijampolė. In a form filled out in 1921, Yezhov claimed some ability to speak Polish and Lithuanian.

    He completed only his elementary education. From 1909 to 1915, he worked as a tailor’s assistant and factory worker. From 1915 until 1917, Yezhov served in the Imperial Russian Army. He joined the Bolsheviks on May 5, 1917 in Vitebsk, a few months before the October Revolution. During the Russian Civil War, 1919–1921, he fought in the Red Army. After February 1922, he worked in the political system, mostly as a secretary of various regional committees of the Communist Party. In 1927, he was transferred to the Accounting and Distribution Department of the Communist Party where he worked as an instructor and acting head of the department. From 1929 to 1930, he was the Deputy of the People’s Commissar for Agriculture. In November 1930, he was appointed to the Head of several departments of the Communist Party: department of special affairs, department of personnel and department of industry. In 1934, he was elected to the Central Committee of the Communist Party;[4] in the next year he became a secretary of the Central Committee. From February 1935 to March 1939, he was also the Chairman of the Central Commission for Party Control.

    In the “Letter of an Old Bolshevik” (1936), which is purported to be the musings of Nikolai Bukharin[citation needed], there is this contemporary description of Yezhov:

    “In the whole of my long life, I have never met a more repellent personality than Yezhov’s. When I look at him I am reminded irresistibly of the wicked urchins of the courts in Rasterayeva Street, whose favorite occupation was to tie a piece of paper dipped in paraffin to a cat’s tail, set fire to it, and then watch with delight how the terrified animal would tear down the street, trying desperately but in vain to escape the approaching flames. I do not doubt that in his childhood Yezhov amused himself in just such a manner and that he is now continuing to do so in different forms.”
    Physically, Yezhov was short in stature, standing five feet, or 151 cm – and that, combined with his sadistic personality led to his nickname ‘The Poisoned Dwarf’ or ‘The Bloody Dwarf’.

    [edit] Personal life
    Yezhov had married the educated and sincerely Marxist Antonia Titova in 1919, but he later divorced her and married Yevgenia Feigenburg. Yezhov and Feigenburg had an adopted daughter, called Natasha, an orphan from a children’s home.

    [edit] Head of the NKVD
    Yezhov was known as a determined loyalist of Joseph Stalin, and in 1935 he wrote a paper in which he argued that political opposition must eventually lead to violence and terrorism; this became in part the ideological basis of the purges.[5] He became People’s Commissar for Internal Affairs (head of the NKVD) and a member of the Presidium Central Executive Committee on September 26, 1936, following the dismissal of Genrikh Yagoda. Yezhov’s first task from Stalin was to personally investigate and conduct the prosecution of his long-time Chekist mentor Yagoda, which he did with remorseless zeal, fabricating the evidence[citation needed] necessary to see him condemned to execution as a traitor. As an additional insult, Yezhov ordered Yagoda to be stripped naked and severely beaten by the guards at the Lubyanka before his execution.

    Yagoda was but the first of many to die by Yezhov’s orders. Under Yezhov, the Great Purge reached its height during 1937-1938, with roughly 50-75%[citation needed] of the members of the Supreme Soviet and officers of the Soviet military being stripped of their positions and imprisoned, exiled to the Siberian gulags or executed, along with a greater number of ordinary Soviet citizens, accused (usually without evidence) of disloyalty or “wrecking” by local Chekist troikas in order to satisfy Yezhov’s[citation needed] arbitrary quotas for arrests and executions. Yezhov also conducted a thorough purge of the security organs, both NKVD and GRU, removing and executing many officials who had been appointed by his predecessors Yagoda and Menzhinsky, but even his own appointees as well. He staunchly maintained that it was worth having “ten innocent people suffer rather than letting one ‘enemy of the people’ escape”. In 1937 and 1938 at least 1.3 million were arrested, and at least 681,692 people (and likely far more) were shot, for ‘crimes against the state’. The Gulag population grew by 685,201, with further deaths within (at least 140,000) and during the transports to the camps.[6]

    The apex of Yezhov’s career was reached on 20 December 1937, when the party hosted a giant gala to celebrate the 20th anniversary of the NKVD at the Bolshoi Theater. Enormous banners with portraits of Stalin hung side-by-side with those of Yezhov. On a stage crowded with flowers, Anastas Mikoyan, dressed in a dark caucasian tunic and belt, praised Yezhov for his tireless work. “Learn the Stalin way to work”, he said, “from Comrade Yezhov, just as he learned and will continue to learn from Comrade Stalin himself”. The crux of this line was that every Soviet citizen should aspire to the same level of Stalinist orthodoxy as an NKVD agent. When presented, Yezhov received an “uproarious greeting” of thunderous applause. He stood, one observer wrote, “eyes cast down and a sheepish grin on his face, as if he wasn’t sure he deserved such a rapturous reception.” Stalin himself was present, and observed the scene from his private box. Yezhov may also have realized the danger he was in, as Stalin was known to have no tolerance for high Party leaders given independent public acclaim and popularity, sincerely felt or not. Stalin was, as always, deeply suspicious of the political ambitions of his immediate subordinates, and was known for regularly purging the upper ranks of his executive apparatus (as was evinced with Yagoda) out of fear that they would conspire to oppose him.[citation needed]

    [edit] Decline and fall
    Yezhov was appointed to the post of People’s Commissar for Water Transport on April 6, 1938. While maintaining his other posts, his role as grand inquisitor and extractor of confessions gradually diminished as Stalin retreated from the worst excesses of the Great Purge. Contrary to Stalin’s expectations, the vast number of party officials and military officers lost during Yezhov’s purges had only been partially made good by replacement with trusted Stalinist functionaries[citation needed], and he eventually correctly recognized that the disruption was severely affecting the country’s ability to coordinate industrial production and defend its borders from the growing threat of Nazi Germany.

    On August 22, 1938, Lavrenty Beria was named as Yezhov’s deputy. Over the following months, Beria (with Stalin’s approval) began to increasingly usurp Yezhov’s governance of the Commissariat for Internal Affairs. As early as September 8, Mikhail Frinovsky, Yezhov’s first deputy, was relocated from under his command into the Navy. Stalin’s penchant for periodically executing and replacing his primary lieutenants was well known to Yezhov, as he had previously been the man most directly responsible for orchestrating such actions. Well familiar with the typical Stalinist bureaucratic precursors to eventual dismissal and arrest, he recognized Beria’s increasing influence with Stalin as a threat to his position, and plunged headlong into alcoholism and despair. Already a heavy drinker, in the last weeks of his service he reportedly was disconsolate, slovenly, and drunk nearly all of his waking hours, rarely bothering to show up to work. As anticipated, Stalin and Vyacheslav Molotov, in a report dated November 11, sharply criticized the work and methods of the NKVD during Yezhov’s tenure as chief, thus creating the bureaucratic pretense necessary to remove him from power. At his own request, Yezhov was officially relieved of his post as the People’s Commissar for Internal Affairs on November 25, succeeded by Beria.

    Stalin was evidently content to ignore Yezhov for several months, finally ordering Beria to denounce him at the annual Presidium of the Supreme Soviet. On March 3, 1939 Yezhov was relieved of all his posts in the Central Committee of the Communist Party of the Soviet Union. On April 10, he was arrested and imprisoned at the Sukhanovka prison. Amongst his main accusations the former Narkom was accused in accordance with the Article 154 of Criminal Code (“sodomy, committed with violence or the use of the dependent status of the victim”).[7][8][9] Yezhov quickly broke under torture, and confessed to the standard battery of capital crimes necessary to firmly establish a Soviet political prisoner’s status as an “enemy of the people” prior to execution, including “wrecking”, official incompetence, theft of government funds and treasonous collaboration with German spies and saboteurs, none of which were likely or supported by evidence.[citation needed] Apart from this he confessed to a humiliating history of gross sexual deviancy, both homosexual and heterosexual, that was oddly (in contrast with other condemned Bolshevik officials) later partially corroborated by witness reports and deemed mostly true in subsequent inquiries[citation needed].

    On February 3, 1940 Soviet judge Vasili Ulrikh tried Yezhov in Beria’s office. Yezhov was nearly incoherent, and, like his predecessor Yagoda, mournfully maintained his love for Stalin to the end, flatly refusing Beria’s suggestion that he confess to a plot to kill Stalin, saying, “it is better to leave this earth as an honorable man.” Yezhov begged Beria on his knees for a few minutes with Stalin to explain himself, and was repeatedly ignored, finally vowing he would “die with Stalin’s name on his lips”. When the sentence of death was read, Yezhov fainted and had to be carried from the room.

    On February 4, he was executed by NKVD Chief Executioner Major-General Vasili Blokhin in the basement of a small NKVD station on Varsonofevskii Lane in Moscow. The main NKVD execution chamber in the basement of the Lubyanka was deliberately avoided to ensure total secrecy[citation needed], since Stalin intended to quietly remove a dangerous and potentially embarrassing colleague, not conduct a show trial in which Yezhov might possibly betray Stalin’s secrets or cast a bad light on his apparatus. Yezhov’s refusal to confess to a plot to murder Stalin had made him useless for propaganda purposes, and in any case Stalin was seeking to tie up loose ends in his administration, not stage a propaganda coup[citation needed]. According to a witness[who?], just before the execution Yezhov was ordered to undress himself and then was brutally beaten by guards at the order of Beria, the new NKVD Chief, just as Yezhov had ordered the guards to beat and humiliate his predecessor and former mentor Genrikh Yagoda before his execution only two years prior. Yezhov reportedly[citation needed] had to be carried into the execution chamber semi-conscious, hiccuping and weeping uncontrollably. His ashes were dumped in a common grave at Moscow’s Donskoi Cemetery.[10] The execution remained secret, and as late as 1948, Time reported that “[s]ome think he is still in an insane asylum.″[11]

    [edit] Popular culture
    The following poem of the Kazakhstan People’s poet Jambyl was translated by K.Altaysky and published in Pionerskaya Pravda (Pioneer’s Truth) #171 of December 20, 1937.

    Narkom Yezhov

    Of million voices this sonorous word
    It flies from the peoples to batyr Yezhov:
    – Thanks, Yezhov, for raising alarm,
    You stand on the guard for the country and the leader! ..

    Here, everybody loves you, Comrade Yezhov!
    And people repeating, gathering around:
    – Greetings to you, the Stalin’s faithful friend! …

    • They’re doing this to avoid a trial, where testimony will become public knowledge and anybody who’s complicit will be exposed.

  3. This is bugging me. I can’t pull up the other publications — The Record; Fort Worth Star Telegram; and any other publication — and yet we can pull up the Seattle; Watertown, NY; and Chicago. ((Can anyone here at wtpotus pull them up? If scrubbed, why leave the other two on the net?))
    Manning and others claim o was cia — but would the cia really need to communicate via news publications!!!! The Debrework/Chicago reference still bothers me as well.
    In the “Beyond Weird” blog, Watertown is mentioned — its too late for me to read the entire article in detail.

    Notice the “New World Order Evolves as US Falls Behind” headline below the Foreign Student article in the Watertown Daily Times snippet from Freepers.

    Bizarre.

    • Correction: I cannot pull up the Watertown Daily Times version — I can only find that version via other sources, such as Freepers, etc.. Perhaps I’m doing something wrong in my search — I can only pull up the Seattle and Chicago. I’m curious to know whether other names were used in the other (yet unfound)papers, or whether it was just Debrework/Chicago.
      Was Debrework a contact (renee’s link?); what about the reporter who submitted that chitown version (and maybe also Deborah Seward) ; and it would also make sense that if o were (planted/planned lol) to start his political career in chitown, that “they” wouldn’t want the o name, in that context, in the local paper…. I don’t know, I’m just guessing — anyone here have any ideas — lol, I really need to crawl back under my rock — this turns me into a fruitloop.

      I had never heard of this beyondweird blog, I found it when doing a search for Watertown. That article raises my eyebrows.
      Uh-oh, I just went to the homepage of beyondweird.com — the title fits — its an occult site!!

      • Russian Rossiysky universitet druzhby narodov

        state institution of higher learning in Moscow, founded in 1960 as People’s Friendship University “to give an education to people who had liberated themselves from colonialist oppression.” It was renamed Patrice Lumumba People’s Friendship University (Universitet druzhby narodov imeni Patrisa Lumumby) for the Congolese premier Patrice Lumumba after his death in 1961. Patrice Lumumba People’s Friendship University drew students from developing countries throughout the world.

        As at all Soviet universities, education at Patrice Lumumba People’s Friendship University was fully financed by the government, which also paid for the students’ initial transportation to the Soviet Union and their return after graduation. There were six faculties: engineering; agriculture; medicine; physics, mathematics, and general science; economics and international law; and history and philosophy. There was a strong emphasis on the first three subjects; only about 30 percent of the students were in the humanities. All programs required six years for completion, the first year being preparatory, during which students learned Russian, the language of instruction. Following the collapse of the Soviet Union in 1991, the university was renamed the People’s Friendship University of Russia (1992).

    I found this interesting tidbit…
    Mahmoud Abbas got his PHd at Patrice Lumumba University in the 1980’s…!!!!!!!

    Interesting the connections at Lumumba in the 1980’s……..worth going further don’t you think?

    (Of course Abbas did not believe in the Holocaust regardless of the wealth of information and overwhelming evidence but did believe in jihad……….)
    Surprise ….the soviets were against the Nazi’s and the Zionists so his thesis was right on the mark for them!

    thesis “Relations between Zionism and Nazism : 1933 – 1945 is the title of Mahmoud Abbas’ CandSc thesis, completed in 1982 at the Patrice Lumumba University, and defended at the Institute of Oriental Studies of the Soviet
    Academy of Sciences under the title “The secret connection between the Nazis and the leaders of the Zionist Movement”. It discussed topics such as the Haavara Agreement, by which the Third Reich agreed with the Jewish Agency to facilitate Jewish emigration to Palestine.[14][42] Some content of his thesis has been considered as Holocaust denial by critics, especially the parts disputing the accepted number of deaths in the Holocaust as well as the accusations that Zionist agitation was the cause of the Holocaust [43][44] a charge that he denies.[45]”

          • I am the Congo, the Congo has made me. I am making the Congo.

            —Patrice Lumumba

            Four years after his death, a lot of people talk as if Patrice Emergy Lumumba were still the Congo. In and out of the U.N., African leftists and their Communist backers seem determined to turn Lumumba into a martyr-saint. Bulgaria and Albania joined last week to praise the “great Congolese patriot” who symbolized the “heart of Africa” but was “brutally assassinated.” The Ethiopian and Guinean delegations compared him to Hammarskjöld, while the Mali representative went one better and compared him to Hammarskjöld and John Kennedy.

            Throughout the Communist bloc and in much of Africa, Lumumba’s name, with its rhythm of jungle drums, is invoked by innumerable agitators. It is also borne by hundreds of streets, dozens of schools. Moscow has its Patrice Lumumba Friendship University for foreign students, Belgrade its Patrice Lumumba student home. In Castro Cuba, romantically inclined young workers find togetherness in Patrice Lumumba social centers. Last week in Kenya, the brand new $120,000 Lumumba Institute, built with Russian and Chinese money, opened its doors to “rehabilitate the minds of Kenyans from a colonial mentality and teach them how to sacrifice themselves for the good of the country and of Africans as a whole.”

            No Longer Monkeys. Amid all this mumbo jumbo, the real Lumumba has been almost forgotten. He was, of course, a violent, often eloquent anticolonialist, and an infectiously fanatic orator. At the 1960 independence ceremony, he seized the microphone to tell Belgium’s King Baudouin that “from today, we are no longer your monkeys.” He was also the first Congolese politician to think beyond tribal boundaries, the founder (in 1959) of the Congo’s first semi-national political movement, its first real pan-African nationalist—and its first Prime Minister. But at the time of his death, most of his countrymen had either never heard of him or hated him.

            He was, among other things, a convicted embezzler (of some $2,500 in postal funds), a monumental drunkard, an almost compulsive liar, and an addicted hemp smoker. More important, he was a disaster as Prime Minister. Although his party barely controlled less than one-fourth of the seats in Parliament, he refused to make the political compromises necessary to form a working coalition government, quickly alienated almost every important power base in the Congo. Headstrong, unstable and perpetually frenzied, Lumumba never even tried to govern. His army rebelled less than a week after he took office; his Belgian civil servants fled in terror; vital provinces tried to secede; and the land, neither administered nor policed, reverted to darkness. Howling all the while about white imperialism, Patrice Lumumba himself did not hesitate to sell the exploitation rights to the Congo’s vast resources to a fast-talking American promoter.

Only ten weeks later, Lumumba’s government was deposed in a coup during the Congo Crisis.[1] He was subsequently imprisoned and murdered in circumstances suggesting the support and complicity of the governments of Belgium and the United States

                    • Men’s basketball

                      Temple University Liacouras CenterMain article: Temple Owls men’s basketball
                      The Temple Men’s basketball program is currently ranked 6th in All-Time NCAA wins with 1711, (starting the 2009/2010 season). They are in good company, with only Kentucky, North Carolina, Kansas, Duke, and Syracuse having a higher total.

                      Temple is recognized as having won the first-ever National Collegiate basketball championship in 1938, under Coach James Usilton. That Owls team, which finished with a 23-2 record, won the inaugural National Invitation Tournament by routing Colorado 60-36 in the championship final. Because the NCAA Tournament was not held until the following year, Temple’s NIT championship earned the Owls the first national college basketball title. During the 1950s, the Temple basketball team made two NCAA Final Four appearances (1956, 1958) under legendary Head Coach Harry Litwack. Litwack would be inducted into the Basketball Hall of Fame after concluding a 21-year coaching career that included 373 wins.

                      Head Coach John Chaney, who is also a Hall of Fame coach, won a total of 724 career games and took Temple to the NCAA tournament 17 times. His 1987-88 Owls team entered the NCAA tournament ranked #1 in the country, and he has reached the Elite Eight on five different occasions. He was consensus national coach of the year in 1988.

    Gave up US citizenship and moved o Ghana
    Shirleys son took on the DuBois name and later worked for NAACP
    Coup in Africa at that time.
    All happening from 1958-1961 or there abouts……

    Are we closing in or going around in circles!!!!!

    • Closing in by going in circles…there is more..Redpill asks if Bill is Comm and Muslim…let me show you more in a bit..If we keep finding the same info for over 2 years it means we were on track the first time. Now we are filling in pieces…missing puzzle pieces, until, the view takes a real shape.

        • BRUSSELS — The sons of Congolese independence hero Patrice Lumumba said Tuesday they would seek war crimes charges against 12 Belgians they suspect of involvement in their father’s assassination.

          “It is a father I am looking for, a father whom I still love, and I want to know why he was killed,” his youngest son, Guy Lumumba, told reporters in Brussels.

          “We are targeting the assassins. In Belgium, there are 12 of them. They are alive and we want them to answer for their ignoble acts before justice,” he said.

          The sons will file a complaint accusing the 12 of war crimes in a Brussels criminal court in October, said Lumumba family attorney Christophe Marchand.

          The 12 Belgians were in the Congolese province of Katanga when Lumumba was killed there on January 17, 1961, shortly after his transfer from Leopoldville, the former name of the capital Kinshasa, Marchand said.

          He refused to name them, saying he will reveal their identities to the judge, but he said the suspects include Belgian officials, police officers and soldiers.

          Lumumba was the first democratically elected prime minister of Congo after it gained independence from Belgium on June 30, 1960.

          He was murdered by Katanga officials four months after Joseph-Desire Mobutu took power in a coup in September 1960. The country, now known as the Democratic Republic of Congo, was renamed Zaire by Mobutu.

          A Belgian parliamentary inquiry concluded in 2001 that Belgium had a “moral responsibility” in Lumumba’s assassination and the government apologised to its former colony, but no legal action was taken afterwards.

          “The wounds of the past will disappear only when the truth comes out and justice is served,” Marchand said.

    could you please check your old research and let me know if you have any source for a connection between Helena Fatima Ritzor Shirley Graham and Madelyn or SAD?
    I believe it came up on TD when looking to see if she stayed with ” her mothers friend”.

    Do you have a year?

  9. News
    Was that post on the navy ships your original post?

    If so it has gone viral….. Someone just brought it in to me!!!! No connection to WTPOTUS

  10. Spies swapped with Russia before interrogating them? Russians commit and get caught in espionage and are deported? Our FBI spent 10 years investigating them, and now they are slapped on the hand and sent back to their homeland?

    Did the FBI let us know they are still on our side? Why no word or outrage from them that the spies are being lawfully deported without finding out what information they sent back to their sponsors?

    Obama and his Marxist/COMMUNIST handlers have decided to blantantly let the spies go? In return we get someone accused of spying that no one can tell us about? This is the new Obama diplomacy because of a burger eaten in a dive? We must be nice to our known enemies? Who is the real enemy in this? Obama is apparently taking his orders directly from Moscow. They say let them go, and he does!

    Communist Spies are now just deported? This reminds me of the short interrogation of the Christmas Day bomber before he was given Miranda rights. The government says this is no big deal? Anyone else believe this is a problem and a major coverup is going on?

  11. They sure wanted to get them out of the country before they started talking….
    Now they are safe and sound under Russian control……..
    No worries
    hmmmm
    theyvwent from total freedom to total contol …….
    Wonder how they are going to do now that they are “home”

  12. I’m such a cynic — my feeling re the russian spy exposure was that it was used to deflect attention from the horrendous uncontrollable oil gusher in the Gulf . Pity the ocean life/death.

    • On the other hand, I do like dave m’s June 29 comment, “This was an FBI sting against Obama WH…”.
      I wonder if that is true?!

  13. As usual, there is something really strange going on with this! Fox says O knew about the arrests two weeks beforehand and the U.S. gets FOUR RUSSIANS in exchange for TEN of their guys; oh, and one of the four is 90 YEARS OLD !!! You just can’t make this stuff up! All this went down in the last two weeks and suddenly it is old news….but what about things that happened several months ago….let’s see…..heard anything about the disgusting murderer of our precious soldiers on American soil ???? Charges for the assault on Gladney by Union thugs???; etc. etc.

    • Perhaps my suspicion was correct — thats how o and co. usually play the game (for that matter, all politicians).

  14. Ok, I was typing a message and it disappeared lol. Aone!! I just now saw your message and comments from a couple of days ago! You and renee are on a trail — any new info???!!! Renee, just curious, do you have any photos Helena, patrice, nkumrah (?),shirley, etc. handy — ahhh, perhaps in your africa thread.

    • Ali, no pics as of now. My messages going off tonight too. I think WP having a bad day maybe.

      • I did a search on Helena Fatima, but I’m not getting her — do I have the wrong name?

                  • Early life
                    [edit] Family history
                    William Edward Burghardt Du Bois was born on February 23, 1868, in Great Barrington, Massachusetts, to Alfred Du Bois and Mary Silvina Burghardt Du Bois. He grew up in Great Barrington, a predominately Anglo-American town. Mary Silvina Burghardt’s family was part of the very small free black population of Great Barrington, having long owned land in the state. Their family descended from Dutch and African ancestors, including Tom, a West African-born man who served as a private for Captain John Spoor’s company in 1780, a service which likely won him his freedom. According to Du Bois, several of his maternal ancestors were notably involved in regional history.

                    Alfred Du Bois, from Haiti, was of French Huguenot and African descent. His grandfather was Dr. James Du Bois of Poughkeepsie, New York. Dr. Du Bois’s family was rewarded extensive lands in the Bahamas for its support of King George III during the American Revolution. On Long Cay, Bahamas, James Du Bois fathered several children with slave mistresses. When he returned to New York in 1812, James brought with him John and Alexander, two of his sons, to be educated in Connecticut. After James Du Bois died, his black sons were disowned by his family and forced to give up schooling for work. Alexander became a merchant in New Haven and married Sarah Marsh Lewis, with whom he had several children. In the 1830s Alexander went to Haiti to try to salvage his inheritance. His son Alfred was born there in about 1833. Alexander returned to New Haven without the boy and his mother.

                    It is unknown how Alfred Du Bois and Mary Silvina Burghardt met, but they married on February 5, 1867, in Housatonic, Massachusetts. Alfred deserted Mary by the time their son William was two. The boy was very close to his mother. When he was young, Mary suffered a stroke which left her unable to work. The two of them moved frequently, surviving on money from family members and Du Bois’s after-school jobs. Du Bois wanted to help his mother and believed he could improve their lives through education. Some of the neighborhood whites noticed him, and one rented Du Bois and his mother a house in Great Barrington. Growing up Du Bois attended the First Congregational Church of Great Barrington

                    Ali, Note the name Alexander also.

                  • While a student in Berlin, he traveled extensively throughout Europe. He came of age intellectually in the German capital, while studying with some of that nation’s most prominent social scientists, including Gustav von Schmoller, Adolph Wagner, and Heinrich von Treitschke.

                    In 1895, Du Bois became the first African American to earn a Ph.D. from Harvard University. After teaching at Wilberforce University in Ohio, he worked at the University of Pennsylvania. He taught while undertaking field research for his study The Philadelphia Negro. Next he moved to Georgia, where he established the Department of Social Work at Atlanta University (now Clark Atlanta University Whitney M. Young school of Social Work). He also taught at The New School in Greenwich Village, New York City.

                    • Whitney M. Young

                    • The house in Hawaii was in the name of Thelma Jones Lefforge YOUNG and Orland Scott Lefforge. He taught at U of H. Thelma divorced him, remarried, divorced Young and went back to Orland. I think Thelma Young connects around here somewhere.

                      See Payne Whitney, Astor, Whitney, Payne Webber, etc..also. Bill Ayers was the person to oversee the collection of the crystal drawing room of the Whitney- Vanderbilt estate.

              Cyril Lionel Robert James (4 January 1901 – 19 May 1989) who also adopted the pen-name of J.R. Johnson was an Afro-Trinidadian historian, journalist, socialist theorist and essayist. He was influential in the United Kingdom and the United States in socialist parties and Marxist thought, as well as leading ideas about the end of colonialism. He is also famed as a writer on cricket.[1]

                    • The Johnson-Forest tendency, sometimes called the Johnsonites, refers to an American radical left tendency associated with Marxist theorists C.L.R. James and Raya Dunayevskaya, who used the pseudonyms J.R. Johnson and Freddie Forest respectively. They were joined by Grace Lee Boggs, a Chinese-American woman who was considered the third founder.

                      Much of the story of the Johnson-Forest tendency relates to disputes between various factions of the Trotskyist parties in the USA. James and Dunayevskaya first met in the Socialist Workers Party. From 1939–1940, there was a bitter fight amongst the members of the Socialist Workers Party, and in 1940, James, Dunayevskaya, and Max Shachtman, among others, split to form the Workers Party. James and Dunayevskaya set up a study group within the Workers Party to work on the idea of State Capitalism, and were soon joined by Lee.

                      While this new group rapidly cohered around politics which were very similar to those of the Socialist Workers Party, there were certain differences which eventually led to the formation of the Johnson-Forest tendency. The majority of the Workers Party members believed, as did Shachtman, that the class nature of the Soviet Union was such that it should be designated a bureaucratic collectivist society. The minority opinion, held by James, Dunayevskaya, and Lee, held that it was state capitalist. Further, James was unhappy with the WP’s lack of interest in Black activism.

  15. I’ll repeat this comment under his eligibility thread.
    Recall I’ve been perplexed re the 1992 Lumumba articles. I wondered what happened to the other articles, why can we pull up some but not others. If scrubbed why not scrub all. Well, perhaps its all just another o team setup. Perhaps those articles were placed to backup the cia story.

  16. Shirley.(Lola)
    She had a scar on her neck. I like Shirley. She always looks so proper but still a bit shy. WEB was a strong presence to care for I bet.

    http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Shirley_Graham_Du_Bois

    • She was born Lola Shirley Graham in Evansville, Indiana, in 1896, but often gave her age as up to ten years younger. Her father was an African Methodist Episcopal minister, and the family moved often. In June 1915, Shirley graduated from Lewis and Clark High School in Spokane, Washington.[1]

      She married her first husband, Shadrach T. McCants, in 1921, and divorced him in 1927. (In her memoir, however, she had asserted that she was widowed by 1925.) Their son Daniel was born in 1923, followed by David in 1925. In 1929, she relocated to Paris, France to study music composition. She reasoned that this education might allow her to achieve better employment and be able to better support her children.

      In the late 1940s, Graham became a member of Sojourners for Truth and Justice – an African-American organization concerned with the global women’s liberation.[1] Approximately around the same time, she joined the American Communist Party.[1]

      She and Du Bois married in 1951, the second marriage for both. They later emigrated to Ghana, where they received citizenship in 1961 and he died in 1963. In 1967, she was forced to leave after a military-led coup d’etat, and moved to Cairo, Egypt, where she continued writing. Her surviving son accompanied her and worked as a journalist.

      She died of breast cancer on March 27, 1977 in Beijing, China, where she had gone for treatment

    Swap Idea Emerged Early in Case of Russia Agents

    By PETER BAKER, CHARLIE SAVAGE and BENJAMIN WEISER
    Published: July 9, 2010

    WASHINGTON — On a Friday afternoon in mid-June, President Obama sat down with advisers in the Oval Office and learned that the F.B.I. planned to round up the largest ring of Russian sleeper agents since the cold war. After discussion about what the agents had done, the conversation turned to the fallout: what to do after the arrests?

    In that moment was born a back-to-the-future plan that would play out four weeks later, a prisoner exchange with surreal and even cinematic overtones as Russian and American airplanes met on a sunny tarmac in the heart of Europe on Friday to trade agents and spies much as had been done during a more hostile era.

    From the first time the president was told about the case on June 11 — 16 days before the Russian agents were actually arrested — a swap emerged as an option that could resolve a potentially volatile situation without undercutting Mr. Obama’s effort to rebuild Russian-American relations. The Russian spy ring would be broken, the Americans would secure the release of four Russian prisoners and both sides could then put the episode behind them.

    Administration officials said Friday that the arrests were not made for the purpose of making a deal and that no decision about a swap was made until after the agents were in custody. But they described a fast-moving sequence of events after the arrests in which both sides scrambled to reach an agreement, even to the point of Russian officials’ offering money and other benefits to encourage one of their sleeper agents to consider the deal.

  18. A russian for a russian?? A few thing’s in this article caught my eye…..

    “No American accused of spying is known to be in Russian custody. But Mr. Sutyagin was one of a number of Russian scientists imprisoned after being accused of revealing secrets to the West.”

    (No American accused of spying is known to be in Russian custody)

    So we gave up 10 russian spies, no trial’s, ect…….Why?

    Russian scientist Igor V. Sutyagin had been released in return for the Russian suspect Anna Chapman

    July 8, 2010

    MOSCOW — An advocate for an imprisoned Russian scientist, Igor V. Sutyagin, said Thursday that he had evidently been released in return for the Russian suspect Anna Chapman, in a prisoner exchange redolent of the cold war.

    The advocate, Ernst Chyorny, said Mr. Sutyagin – who has served 10 years of a 14-year sentence for espionage — had called his father from Vienna, where he was met by a British officer. Family members who met with Mr. Sutyagin this week in Moscow said he had been informed he would be transported through Vienna to Britain, where he would be freed. Mr. Sutyagin’s mother, a chemical engineer in a scientific community outside Moscow, rushed home from work when she heard the news.

    “So far I don’t know what happened,” said the mother, Svetlana Y. Sutyagina. “I am in a state of suspense.”

    The reported exchange was not confirmed by Russian or American officials on Thursday, though anticipation had built throughout the day.

    The scientist’s lawyer, Anna Stavitskaya, said Mr. Sutyagin had verbally agreed to an exchange during a meeting with Russian officials who he believed were from Russia’s Foreign Intelligence Service, or S.V.R., and that Americans had also been present at the meeting.

    Her comments followed reports from Washington on Wednesday that just days after the F.B.I.’s sensational dismantling of a Russian spy ring, the American and Russian authorities were negotiating an exchange of some or all of the 10 espionage suspects for prisoners held in Russia, including Mr. Sutyagin.

    Ms. Stavitskaya said Mr. Sutyagin had consistently denied spying for the United States, for which he was sentenced to a 14-year term, but this week he signed a document admitting guilt.

    “If he is free, the United States could be thanked for one thing, for saving a person,” she said. “I am thankful to the United States, if it was the United States that included him on the list. If at last he is freed — not in the way we wanted, because we wanted him to restore his good name, but it is difficult to do it, given our judicial system — at least he will be freed in this way,” she said. “If he leaves today, it will happen quietly.”

    “No American accused of spying is known to be in Russian custody. But Mr. Sutyagin was one of a number of Russian scientists imprisoned after being accused of revealing secrets to the West.”

    (No American accused of spying is known to be in Russian custody)

    So we gave up 10 russian spies, no trial’s, ect…….Why?

    Russian scientist Igor V. Sutyagin had been released in return for the Russian suspect Anna Chapman

    July 8, 2010

    MOSCOW — An advocate for an imprisoned Russian scientist, Igor V. Sutyagin, said Thursday that he had evidently been released in return for the Russian suspect Anna Chapman, in a prisoner exchange redolent of the cold war.

    The advocate, Ernst Chyorny, said Mr. Sutyagin – who has served 10 years of a 14-year sentence for espionage — had called his father from Vienna, where he was met by a British officer. Family members who met with Mr. Sutyagin this week in Moscow said he had been informed he would be transported through Vienna to Britain, where he would be freed. Mr. Sutyagin’s mother, a chemical engineer in a scientific community outside Moscow, rushed home from work when she heard the news.

    “So far I don’t know what happened,” said the mother, Svetlana Y. Sutyagina. “I am in a state of suspense.”

    The reported exchange was not confirmed by Russian or American officials on Thursday, though anticipation had built throughout the day.

    The scientist’s lawyer, Anna Stavitskaya, said Mr. Sutyagin had verbally agreed to an exchange during a meeting with Russian officials who he believed were from Russia’s Foreign Intelligence Service, or S.V.R., and that Americans had also been present at the meeting.

    Her comments followed reports from Washington on Wednesday that just days after the F.B.I.’s sensational dismantling of a Russian spy ring, the American and Russian authorities were negotiating an exchange of some or all of the 10 espionage suspects for prisoners held in Russia, including Mr. Sutyagin.

    Ms. Stavitskaya said Mr. Sutyagin had consistently denied spying for the United States, for which he was sentenced to a 14-year term, but this week he signed a document admitting guilt.

    “If he is free, the United States could be thanked for one thing, for saving a person,” she said. “I am thankful to the United States, if it was the United States that included him on the list. If at last he is freed — not in the way we wanted, because we wanted him to restore his good name, but it is difficult to do it, given our judicial system — at least he will be freed in this way,” she said. “If he leaves today, it will happen quietly.”

  21. Let’s make a deal??

    Russia-US Swap Brings Spy Scandal to a Close
    Thursday 08 July 2010

    by: Miriam Elder | GlobalPost | Report

    New York – The spy scandal of the decade may soon come to a swift close, as Russian and U.S. officials negotiate a deal to swap the alleged Russian sleeper agents caught on American soil last month for a host of men jailed in Russia on charges of spying for the West.
    Russian media reports said that Anna Chapman, the New York-based redhead who has come to symbolize the spy affair, would be traded for Igor Sutyagin, a Russian scientist convicted by a Moscow court in 2004 of passing nuclear secrets to the CIA.
    The reports signal that several more swaps could be in the works.
    Many comparisons will be made to the spy swaps of the Soviet-era — but, on the contrary, the case proves how much times have changed.
    While U.S. media have fixated on tales of femme fatales, secret spy codes and the fate of children unaware of their parents’ real identities, the issue has been decidedly downplayed by U.S. and Russian officials alike.
    U.S. President Barack Obama has worked hard to “reset” relations with Russia after years of tension under the Bush administration. He has backed down on building a missile defense system in Eastern Europe and cut back U.S. involvement in neighboring Ukraine and Georgia — moves that have been welcomed in a country keen to preserve influence in its backyard.
    In response, Russia supported (admittedly watered-down) U.N. sanctions on Iran and appears to have backed down on calls to close a key U.S. military base in Kyrgyzstan. Both sides worked hard to renegotiate a successor treaty to START, which calls for bilateral cuts in nuclear warheads.
    Now both Russia and the U.S. appear keen to sweep the spy issue under the rug as soon as possible.
    Ten of the 11 suspects were due to appear in a U.S. federal court on Thursday to be arraigned for conspiring to act as spies. The 11th, and apparently most important, suspect, Christopher Robert Metsos, was arrested in Cyprus on June 29 and released on bail. Allegedly tasked with overseeing payment for the ring of U.S. sleeper agents, he has since fled the island, a favorite Russian offshore.

      Obama ab chao

      When this blog alone exposed exclusively that Mr. Obama’s speech in Tucson included the illuminati reference by a Teddy Kennedy speech writer of order from the chaos, it was noted that no one from the Alex Jones fringe who were so ready to hang the Bush boys in their Skull and Bones had any definitive follow up concerning Mr. Obama’s deliberate placing the Rothschild tattoo on the Gabrielle Giffords shootfest.
      If you do not comprehend this, the cartel has a pecking order, and in that order they lay claim to acts in public. In that, the cartel was stating that what was initiated in Arizona was their sacrificial rite in as the Kaiser stated, they could always find some lone nut to pull a trigger.

      Once again, why no follow up on why ambulances did not arrive because of reports of a second gunman, and why were bullets bouncing off of crazed Giffords fans?

      In that, this dovetails into Egypt which is a mirror operation of the one which these same community organized fellow travelers brought down the Shah of Iran.

      I stated that the Egyptians were furious over what Obama had done, and they are figuring out faster than Sean Hannity and Rush Limbaugh what this blog exclusively exposed from day one, that this Egyptian baby was fathered by B. Hussein Obama with a Muslim Brotherhood whore.

      I found this quote in one of many from Arabs and Muslims which have an interesting Tucson ring to them:

      From King Saud University lecturer Emir Saif Al-Islam bin Saud bin abd Al-Aziz, “What has the American weapon been since the American president’s speech at Cairo University in the summer of 2009 to the Islamic and Arab world – The first weapon is conspiring with the oppositionist political elites. … The American administration has another frightening weapon, aimed at fomenting ‘creative chaos’ and creating a new Arab reality.”

      Creative chaos? Creative chaos to form a New Arab reality of peace prize winner Obama.

      This is Obama illuminati or until Mr. Obama’s powder gets damp from all his ejaculatory effusions shall now be referred to the Obamanati from this point forward.

      Egypt has chaos inseminated into it by el Baradei’s clique of communists and the fast exist of the rightful leader in this coup against President Mubarak, was to bring the order of Obama’s Islamocommunists, to carry out their war against the western world.

      I will be blunt in this that Albert Pike of the order stated a war would be fomented between Isalm and the Christian west to destroy each other to bring about the illuminated thought of satan. The central European cartel, Putin’s Bolsheviks and the Chicoms are in the process of creating a nuclear front against America and the remaining west for a theater war of Obama nuclear holocaust terrorism, which will be responded to by Mr. Obama with nuclear strikes against non secular Muslims of a different order, which will in the end result in the ruling of the world by the Eurasian communists……….at least in their human cropping plan for power.

      The Arabs are now absolutely furious in they have figured out what Obama has been up to. There is no fury like an Arabs when aroused. Mr. Obama has damaged the connection between America and the Muslim states as was intended.
      From Wikileaks to now the outright sabotage of the Egyptian Government, there is now the designed breach as large as Isaac and Ishmael.

      From Adel Abd Al-Rahma of the Palestinian Authority’s Al-Hayat Al-Jadida, “For the thousandth time, the U.S. is proving that it will sell out its allies at the first political crossroads. … Not long ago, the U.S. announced that it was immediately abandoning Tunisian President Zine El-Abidine Ben Ali, known to have strong relations with it; today, it is maneuvering against the leader of Egypt’s regime while deluding the Egyptian protesters into thinking that it supports them and their demands. … Who has forgotten the Shah of Iran and his role as guardian of the American interest – and who has forgotten what the [U.S.] did to him?”

      Once again as this blog noted how Jews are blamed for the sins of the Rotshchild Rockefeller Ashkenaz, you can see the reality that you as an American, who had no part in this Obama coup against Hosni Mubarak, are now being blamed.
      These are the voices of those who speak to the terrorists. The terrorists will then initiate operations inside America, which Mr. Obama will then utilize to crack down.

      Did you miss this virginal sacrifice of Gabrielle Giffords in the Fort Hood Islamist murderer brought no gun control talk from Obama, but for cartel reasons when Ms. Giffords was shot, the entire process took on the Kennedy sacrificial gun control rites again.

      Learn to discern the regime and their religious order rites at work.

      nuff said.

  25. From wiki link above:
    Ashkenazi Jews, also known as Ashkenazic Jews or Ashkenazim (Hebrew: אַשְׁכֲּנָזִים‎‎, pronounced [ˌaʃkəˈnazim], singular: [ˌaʃkəˈnazi]; also יְהוּדֵי אַשְׁכֲּנָז, Yehudei Ashkenaz, “the Jews of Ashkenaz”), are the Jews descended from the medieval Jewish communities along the Rhine in Germany from Alsace in the south to the Rhineland in the north. Ashkenaz is the medieval Hebrew name for this region and thus for Germany. Thus, Ashkenazim or Ashkenazi Jews are literally “German Jews.” Later, Jews from Western and Central Europe came to be called “Ashkenaz” because the main centers of Jewish learning were located in Germany. (See Usage of the name for the term’s etymology.) Ashkenaz is also a Japhetic patriarch in the Table of Nations (Genesis 10).

    Many Ashkenazi Jews later migrated, largely eastward, forming communities in non German-speaking areas, including Hungary, Poland, Belarus, Lithuania, Russia, Ukraine, Eastern Europe, and elsewhere between the 11th and 19th centuries. With them, they took and diversified Yiddish, a basically Germanic language with Hebrew influence, written in Hebrew letters (see Jewish language). It had developed in medieval times as the lingua franca among Ashkenazi Jews. The Jewish communities of three cities along the Rhine: Speyer, Worms and Mainz, created the SHUM league (SHUM after the first Hebrew letters of Spira, Warmatia and Magentza). The ShUM-cities are considered the cradle of the distinct Ashkenazi culture and liturgy.

  26. Other interesting Russian connections;
    http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Roman_Abramovich

    • In a December 2006 interview Abramovich stated that he expected Chelsea’s transfer spending to fall in years to come,[52] although he subsequently seemed to move away from this position.[53] He is also present at almost every game Chelsea plays and shows visible emotion during matches, a sign taken by supporters to indicate a love for the sport, and usually visits the players in the dressing room following each match, although this stopped for a time in early 2007 as rumours of a feud between Abramovich and Chelsea manager José Mourinho appeared in the press which was due to various arguments between the two men regarding the appearances of certain players, notably Andriy Shevchenko.[54] In the early hours of 20 September 2007, José Mourinho announced his exit as Chelsea manager by mutual consent with the club following a meeting with the board.[55] Former Israel coach and Chelsea’s director of football, Avram Grant, was named as his replacement.[56] Ever since Grant had joined Chelsea (in the summer of 2007) there had been friction between him and Mourinho. Mourinho reportedly told Grant not to interfere in team affairs but with Abramovich’s backing, Grant’s profile at the club rose after he was made a member of the board. This event apparently did not go down well with Mourinho and may have contributed to his surprise exit.[57] Avram Grant led Chelsea to the position of runners-up in both the English Premiership and European Champions League- second to Manchester United on both accounts. Nevertheless, on May 24, Grant was sacked as manager by Abramovich.[58] On 11 June 2008, it was announced that Luiz Felipe Scolari would be taking over as manager on 1 July 2008. Scolari was sacked as Chelsea manager on 9 February 2009. In February 2009, Guus Hiddink was appointed manager of the club, but returned to his permanent position as manager of the Russian national team following the conclusion of the English season being replaced by Carlo Ancelotti. As of May 2008, Abramovich has spent approximately £600 million (€705 million) on the club since arriving in 2003.
