Venezuelan President Hugo Chavez died this past week, and I have to ask the readers' indulgence here. As soon as I heard the news, I shared with my friends Dr. Scott deHart and George Ann Hughes that now the fun and games would begin. We all more or less agreed that now, with Chavez gone, Venezuela would be the next hemispherical target in the Anglo-American oligarchy's list for "fun and games", to bring that country to heal.

Well, it seems that the Venezuelans(and by implication once again, their Russian sponsors), are out of the gate first, pointing fingers in America's direction, for Venezuela has expelled two US diplomats, claiming that Mr. Chavez was given his cancer by American intelligence:

Venezuela expels two US embassy officials amid Chavez cancer conspiracy

Note this statement:

"In December 2011, Chavez speculated that the United States could be infecting the regions leaders with cancer  after Argentine President Cristina Fernandez de Kirchner was diagnosed with thyroid cancer."

In other words, for Chavez, there was a strange coincidence between a Latin American leader's stances vis-a-vis the Anglo-American oligarchy, and their incidence of cancer.

While that may be a difficult if not impossible proposition to prove, we'd do well not to dismiss the late Venezuelan leader's ideas too hastily.

As Edward Haslam detailed in his landmark book on the Kennedy assassination, there is a cancer connection, and as I expanded on his research in LBJ and the Conspiracy to Kill Kennedy, it is a deep, dark, murky, and specifically Latin American one. The connections are to the well-known, indeed internationally famous 1950s and 1960s cancer oncologist, Dr. Mary Sherman, and her even more famous mentor, Dr. Alton Ochsner (a native, I'm afraid to admit, of my home state of South Dakota), well-known surgeon, physician, President of the American Cancer Society, and physician to many of Latin America's then-elite, including well-known Argentine president Juan Domingo Peron.

The dark side of all of this is that Dr. Sherman and Dr. Ochsner appeared to have been deeply involved with the CIA in trying to make cancer a weapon, work that involved Mary Sherman with JFK assassination suspect David Ferrie, fingered by New Orleans District Attorney Jim Garrison in his 1960s investigation of the murder. To make matters much worse, it would appear, according to Haslam's research, that Sherman was successful in making cancer a deliverable weapon. Moreover, as I detailed in LBJ and the Conspiracy to Kill Kennedy, Ochsner was accused - though there was no corroborating evidence - by some in South America as having worked with - you guessed it - Nazis to make cancer a weapon. Jack Ruby, finally, before his death indicated he had been injected with cancer to get rid of him and silence him permanently. Of course, we'll never know the truth of the matter here... but given Mr. Chavez's policies, and the extreme dislike of him in Western financial and political circles, it wouldn't surprise me.

But there's a deeper issue. In my opinion, the case Haslam made in Dr. Mary's Monkey is fairly conclusive, and this means "injectable cancer" (so to speak) has been around for about five decades now. So whether or not Mr. Chavez's claims about his own non-natural cancer be true or not, we must at least now entertain the suspicion. And in the trade, that's called blowback, as the West's own technological prowess now becomes the "suspect of first choice" in such cases.

See you on the flip side...
