Hello, my friends, this is Dr. Beter. Today is April 24,
1977, and this is my monthly Audioletter No. 23.

Two months ago in Audioletter No. 21 for February 1977, I
explained how America had been turned into a nation-wide energy
addict over the course of two generations and more, and how this
energy addiction is to be used against us by the four Rockefeller
brothers in turning off our national security; and just four days
ago, on April 20, 1977, this process got under way in earnest by
way of David Rockefeller's revolutionary energy program announced
to the world by his employee, Jimmy Carter. To the casual
observer it must seem incredible--a new administration under a
new President, with no previous experience in Washington, has in
only three short months done what no previous administration has
ever succeeded in doing: developed a comprehensive, detailed
energy program for the most complex economy on earth.
Furthermore, Mr. Carter tells us that we must do as he tells us
in order to avoid "a national catastrophe"; and he says we must
act now. Why the rush? Why this sudden urgency? And why does
he go out of his way to call his energy program "the moral
equivalent of war"? The answer lies in what I warned you about
at the end of monthly Audioletter No. 22 just last month.

The CIA is hard at work arranging what is to be the CIA's
crowning achievement--the staging of a horrendous act of
terrorism that is intended to cause war to erupt in the whole of
the Middle East. This is to set in motion a modified, up-dated
version of the detailed war plan I revealed in monthly
Audioletter No. 6 for November 1975. This plan includes a
limited nuclear strike from the Sinai to cap off Arab OPEC oil
wells except those in Libya, which is controlled by the CIA.
This will lead immediately to very harsh energy rationing in the
United States, and the Federal government will at last get to
issue those precious gas rationing coupons that have been
awaiting use now for over three years. So the Carter energy plan
with its underlying warlike atmosphere is actually the first step
in a gradual shift unto a war footing for the United States. It
has the same purpose as the declaration of national emergency
which President Franklin D. Roosevelt proclaimed in May 1941, six
months before Pearl Harbor, to start getting America ready for
war he was helping to bring about. The second major step in our
progressive shift onto war footing is intended to occur the time
of the cut-off of Middle East oil, by war. This will provide a
perfect excuse for an actual Declaration of National Emergency,
and that in turn will activate all the dictatorial presidential
powers spelled out in Executive Order 11921 signed by President
Ford very quietly in June 1976, and described in my Audioletter
No. 14 for July 1976.

Audioletter No. 14, of course, is also the issue in which I
first revealed the presence of Soviet underwater missiles and
bombs in our own territorial waters. The terrible Middle East
incident now brewing, which I fervently hope and pray will
somehow be sidetracked by its advanced exposure, is to cause a
limited nuclear war in the Middle East. That in turn is supposed
to initiate a chain of events, culminating in Nuclear War One
between the Soviet Union and the United States of America.
Originally this was to have been a carefully programmed war for
the mutual benefit of the Rockefeller cartel and their Soviet
allies, with the Rockefellers and their intimates riding out the
war safely in the nuclear-safe zone across the northern United
States; but ever since the Soviet Union began its double cross of
the Rockefellers last summer 1976, the plans for war have been
undergoing frantic revisions. Even the insane Rockefeller
concessions to the Soviets, embodied in the Red Friday agreement
of October 1, 1976 (which I revealed that month in Audioletter
No. 17) have failed to fully reinstate the Rockefeller/Soviet
alliance--so now anything can happen. The Rockefeller brothers,
who for so long have tried to play God with their immense power,
are now finding out that they too are fallible and human, even if
they still refuse to consciously admit it. Today, my friends,
the power of the Rockefeller empire is in the process of
destroying itself; but just as Samson pulled down the temple
around him, the Rockefeller brothers threaten to pull down modern
civilization around their heads as their power runs out of
control and collapses into the inferno of nuclear war.

Earlier this month, on April 7, 1977, Prime Minister Rabin of
Israel resigned. The press has played up his resignation as if
it were another Watergate, but actually it was only a
technicality having to do with a modest bank account held here in
Washington, D.C. by Rabin against government regulations.
Overnight Rabin was out of office, and his public career has been
described as ruined; but the real reason for Rabin's lightning
exit from Israeli politics was that he learned of the CIA plot to
ignite war in the Middle East, and he wanted no part of it. It's
almost a replay of Sir Harold Wilson's sudden unexplained
resignation as Prime Minister of Great Britain on March 16, 1976,
just over a year ago; and as I explained then in monthly
Audioletter No. 10, Wilson resigned because he had learned of the
coming war plan and wanted nothing to do with it. And so the
build-up toward war continues, and our rulers know it. But what
of the American public in general? How many know what danger we
are in? And especially, how many believe it enough to do
something about it? My friends, most Americans today are on
vacation from reality, but reality will have to be faced one day
in the not too distant future.

My three special topics for today are: Topic #1--THE PRE-WAR

Topic #1--In the early days of the 20th century the
Rockefeller/Standard Oil monopoly had already become supreme in
the United States, but abroad it faced two powerful competitors
in oil. One was the British Empire, whose destruction by means
of two World Wars I've discussed in a number of my past talking
tapes. The other foreign competitor was even bigger than the
British Empire in oil, and it was attacked and destroyed first.
That competitor was Czarist Russia. After the Bolshevik
Revolution took place in 1917, property owners and businessmen of
all kinds were dispossessed and liquidated in great numbers. And
included in this, by design, was the utter destruction of the oil
fields, refineries, oil tankers, everything having to do with
oil. The small band of revolutionaries under Lenin and Trotsky
who had been sent into Russia with the help of Rockefeller
financing had done their job well; and within a few years the new
Communist regime of the Soviet Union welcomed the
Rockefeller/Standard Oil interests with open arms to re-develop
the huge Russian oil reserves. Ever since that day, right down
to the present, practically all of the oil leaving the Soviet
Union has been carried in oil tankers of the Rockefeller/Standard
Oil empire under various names, nominees, and national flags.
For a thorough and most unusual expose of the oil competition
presented to the Rockefellers by Czarist Russia, I highly
recommend a new book by Robert V. Tolf, entitled THE RUSSIAN
INDUSTRY published by the Hoover Institution Press, Stanford
University, Stanford, Calif. 94305--the price is $15.95

For decades following the Bolshevik Revolution, the Soviet
rulers were absolutely dependent upon an uninterrupted flow of
transfusions from the West of money, technical know-how, food,
and arms. The Kremlin ruled a huge nation with an iron fist, and
the Rockefellers shared this rule with the Kremlin. The Soviet
Union, therefore, appeared to be the perfect vehicle for bringing
the entire world under the control of the super-rich Rockefellers
and their intimates. All that was necessary, or so they thought,
was to gradually build up the Soviet system while bleeding to
death the harder to control United States and the western world.
This was the situation the four Rockefeller brothers inherited
long ago-they literally grew up with it, and could hardly imagine
things being any different. But now things are different. The
Soviet Union can now survive without continued outside help, and
now they have been double-crossing the Rockefellers and we the
people will have to suffer for it. Now, both the Rockefellers
and the Soviets are maneuvering, playing a tricky game, and all
the while trying to emerge supreme from the conflict to come.
But, just as it was planned before the Rockefeller/Soviet
alliance began coming apart, the main and prime battleground is
to be the United States of America. The Soviet Union is busy at
work trying to weaken America here and abroad so that we can be
defeated in Nuclear War One; and the Rockefellers are trying to
turn our nation into a complete dictatorship under their
domination. Both are trying to bend the weakening of America's
freedom to their own special advantage.

The centerpiece of the Rockefeller program to completely take
over America right now is the so-called CARTER ENERGY PROGRAM.
Recently the CIA s-u-d-d-e-n-l-y upgraded its estimates of Soviet
spending for new military equipment and installations to four
times the previous figure so as to alarm us. In a similar vein,
the CIA has also provided Jimmy Carter with grist for his energy
mill to grind us into submission by issuing a report saying world
oil reserves are much lower than previously thought. Both CIA
reports are rubbish, issued purely for propaganda purposes; so
the CIA under Admiral Turner, who is a Rockefeller man, is
continuing with the preparations for the limited nuclear strike
from the Sinai in order to get the war started. American F-15
fighter bombers are now available in the Sinai and would hit all
of the five or more Arab target areas with ease; and the special
low-yield nuclear weapons for the job are already on the scene,
currently stored underground at the so-called American Monitoring
Station in the Sinai. The bombs themselves are atomic, not
hydrogen, very clean, with primary blast effects confined to a
radius of only 300 to 400 yards--just right for a so-called
surgical attack to wipe out the oil wells in the target areas.

As for America, even though the Alaskan oil is supposed to
start flowing through the pipeline this summer, it will not come
into the lower United States. It happens to be high sulphur oil
of a type which west-coast refineries cannot handle even though
there have been ten years to get ready for Alaskan oil. Instead,
the Rockefeller plan is to ship this oil to Japan at a handsome
profit, of course, and make up the difference with more imports
of, guess what--Arab oil. When the Arab oil is cut off, there
will be some attempts to ship some of the otherwise useless
Alaskan oil to the Gulf Coast by small, inefficient tankers
through the Panama Canal, which is targeted both by underwater
missiles and by missiles in Guyana. The sharp drop in our oil
supplies will also help to intensify the reduction in food
supplies, which is already resulting from drought here in
America. Many factors are contributing to the drought situation,
including not only the Soviet weather modification activities
I've mentioned in the past, but also activities under Rockefeller
control. For example, I mentioned in Audioletter No. 9 for
February 1976 that for years the Rockefeller oil companies have
been knowingly lowering the underground water table in many areas
of the Midwest and Great Plains by means of excessive pumping
from their oil wells; and now, in many of these very areas, the
problem of low ground water is adding to the drought crisis.

Meanwhile, the Rockefellers never lose sight of their
objectives, no matter how much they are forced to change their
tactics along the way. Their objective for America is
DICTATORSHIP, according to the pattern spelled out in their
secret New Constitution, which I revealed in my Audio Book
Talking Tape No. 4 released in July 1975. Under the guise of
"governmental reorganization", the provisions of their
dictatorial new constitution are being imposed on the United
States piecemeal, gradually, while our real Constitution is
increasingly "interpreted" out of existence.

But of all the things that determine whether a nation will
survive or succumb in time of crisis, the human spirit is still
the most important. A strong spirit and deep resolve can
overcome seemingly insurmountable obstacles, and it can make a
people impossible to conquer; but a weak spirit, without
convictions or values, leaves a people defenseless--defenseless
no matter how much armor they may wear or what weapons they may
command. This is why the human spirit has been the most
consistent target of all, both of the Rockefeller "One World"
group and of the rulers of the Soviet Union.

Last month in Audioletter No. 22 I pointed out one of the
extremes in church philosophy that has been promoted wherever
possible for generations by the Rockefellers and their
collaborators. This extreme is to divorce the moral and
spiritual lessons of religions from daily decisions and actions,
as if the two had no relationship to one another except for lip
service. For whatever reasons, this extreme is personified today
by one Jimmy Carter. The opposite extreme is equally deadly, if
not more so. This is to dilute the spiritual teaching for which
churches originally existed and replace it with preaching about
economic, political, and social issues. To do this is to play
with fire; but this is exactly what the National Council of
Churches and its sister organization the World Council of
Churches have been doing for decades. Prior to November 28,
1950, the National Council was known as the Federal Council of
Churches. For many years the Federal Council had been dominated
at the national level by the Rockefellers and their agent John
Foster Dulles, and was the recipient of several grants from the
Rockefeller Foundation. But the Federal Council became so
totally identified with political activism in support of
socialist causes that it became an object of increasing distrust.
Accordingly, the name was changed to the National Council of
Churches, and its tarnished halo was polished up with public
assurances that this was a new organization which would devote
itself to the real business of the church. There were many
influential laymen in the churches under the umbrella of the
National Council who wanted to help insure that the supposedly
new organization would truly devote itself to proper areas of
church concern. As a result, a National Lay Committee was
brought into being under the chairmanship of the late J. Howard
Pugh, a truly great American, who was the director and president
of the Sun Oil Co. when it was still free of the grasping
clutches of the Rockefellers. The National Lay Committee existed
from March 28, 1951, until June 30, 1955.

The whole story of what happened to the National Lay
Committee of the National Council of Churches is told in the
"Chairman's Final Report" by J. Howard Pugh. Unfortunately this
important report has long been suppressed and buried. I have in
my possession one of the very few copies still known to be in
existence; therefore I will read a few brief passages from the
Chairman's Explanatory Letter, which serves as a Foreword to the
Report as a whole. These quotations are taken in sequence; and
although they do not do justice to Mr. Pugh's complete
explanatory letter, much less the entire 316-page Report, I
believe you will find them revealing:

"In the failure of this most important effort to bring about
an enduring partnership between the clergy and laity, I feel a
very real responsibility to provide a comprehensive and factual
account of those steps which led to the Board's
action--discontinuing lay participation."

"We lay people found ourselves not only deeply in the minority
but often poles apart from the clergy who invariably out-voted us
10 to 1 in these sessions."

"The members of the Lay Committee were often misunderstood in
their urgency to keep the churches out of politics and their
insistence on the promisee evangelism. Our premise was that
instead of appealing to government, the church should devote its
energies to the work of promoting the attributes of
Christianity--truth, honesty, fairness, generosity, justice, and
charity in the hearts and minds of men. We attempted to
emphasize that Christ stressed not the expanded State, but the
dignity and responsibility of the individual."

"Their philosophy, it seemed to the Lay Committee, looked to
an ever-expanding government."

"With few exceptions, the members of the Lay Committee had
agreed to serve only because they had been assured that the new
National Council would avoid the political involvements and
controversies of the old Federal Council of Churches, which was
now superseded."

"Most of the members of the Lay Committee came finally to the
realization that a wide chasm existed between the thinking of the
laity and the clergy and executives of the denominational bodies
which comprise the National Council."

"Thus, on June 30, 1955, the Lay Committee ceased to exist as
a committee of the General Board."

"The members of the Lay Committee believed, and so stated,
that the political adventures of the National Council in the
fields of economic and political controversy would seriously
hinder and not further Christian leadership in the pressing
fields of evangelism, fellowship, and education."

"It appears from the record that the National Council could
find no room for opposition to the philosophies and practices
carried over from the old Federal Council. Lacking the patience
to resolve the basic problem, it has sought to bury it."

Thus ended, my friends, more than 20 years ago the last major
effort to deflect the Rockefeller-dominated National Council of
Churches away from its political programs and toward concern for
spiritual matters. After more than four years of frustrating
effort, the National Lay Committee was dissolved. This signaled
the end of any influence of the general church population of
America on the policies of the National Council of Churches. The
National Council proceeded on its way, proclaiming to the public
that it represented 34,000,000 Protestants, while using this
power base to help undermine our free Republic. The National
Council has done much to help dull and weaken the spirit of
millions of Americans, softening our approach in opposition to
Communism. Let us hope and pray that in these dangerous days
they will at last see the light and begin to work at last to
build up the American spirit, instead of destroying it.

Topic #2--In monthly Audioletter No. 15 for August 1976, I
explained that the planting of short-range underwater-launch
nuclear missiles in our territorial waters was part of the Soviet
naval strategy for the United States and world conquest. The
same continues to be the case now. Admiral Gorshkoff, who has
commanded the Soviet navy for more than 20 years, has built it
into a fighting force that is radically different from any other
navy the world has ever seen; and as we near the very threshold
of war, it is no accident that the Rockefeller insider who now
heads the CIA is also an Admiral--4-star Admiral Stansfield
Turner. The CIA has become the most powerful military
organization in the United States, and Nuclear War One will
revolve around naval strategy. Both the importance of the Soviet
Navy and its great difference from our own United States Navy can
be illustrated by just one fact: When the supersonic Backfire
long-range bomber entered operational service in the Soviet Union
late in 1974, it did so simultaneously with the Soviet Navy as
well as with the Soviet Air Force. This is like giving our own
new supersonic bomber, the B-1, to our Navy to fly--or, since we
still do not have the B-1 to counter the Soviet Backfire, having
our navy fly B-52s. Of course our own navy does not fly
strategic bombers. The United States Navy, like the British Navy
and most of the other great navies of history, has as one of its
primary missions the protection of our sea lanes of commerce--a
war which is basically defensive in nature. Since World War II
our navy has also acquired offensive missions which have
gradually assumed greater importance, including the ability to
attack an enemy from the sea with the submarine-launched
ballistic missiles. But the traditional defensive mission of
protecting our sea lanes can never be neglected. Admiral
Gorshkoff, however, has been able to concentrate on building a
navy which is almost totally offensive in character. Soviet
fishing trawlers, some of them genuine, roam the world; but the
Soviet Union does not depend for its survival on the sea nearly
as much as the United States. So the Soviet Navy is designed
first and foremost for offensive operations; and this not only
includes the ability to interdict enemy sea lanes and attack
enemy naval forces at sea, it also includes an unprecedented
emphasis on projecting naval power ashore. This in turn means
not only the ability to carry out amphibious assaults and
tactical bombardment, but strategic attack--a role we usually
tend to think of only in terms of the Soviet Air Force with its
ICBMs and bombers.

The new Soviet Navy of Admiral Gorshkoff also differs from
ours in another way. Aside from missile submarines, the American
Navy is structured around the aircraft carrier; whereas the
Soviet Navy is built around the submarine. American task forces
include all kinds of ships designed to coordinate with the needs
and capabilities of the aircraft carrier. By the same token,
Soviet surface ships of all kinds are intended to support the
huge submarine force in various ways. This applies even to the
new Soviet aircraft carriers which are now beginning to appear on
the scene since Soviet naval aviation is heavily oriented toward
anti-submarine warfare, although it has other capabilities as
well. The relative naval capabilities of the Soviet Union and
the United States have never been considered in the Strategic
Arms Limitations Talks, the SALT talks, except with regard to
sea-launch ballistic missiles; and yet it is the coming naval
confrontation that could all by itself determine the outcome of
Nuclear War One. It is often forgotten, for example, that the
North Atlantic Treaty Organization (NATO) is primarily a naval
alliance. We hear frequently about NATO in the controlled major
media of the United States as though the only problems were Army
problems--such as rusty tanks and lack of spare parts; and when
the Supreme Allied Commander, Europe, who is presently General
Alexander Haig, is mentioned in the news, he is often called the
head of NATO, or some such, but actually he's only one of three
co-equal Commanders in NATO. The other two are Naval
Commanders--they are the Commander-in-Chief, Channel Command; and
the Supreme Allied Commander, Atlantic, the latter based at
Norfolk, Va. NATO depends for its very life on its naval
strength, including the ability to keep open the vital North
Atlantic sea lanes. But now, Soviet naval Backfire bombers with
air-to-surface, anti-ship missiles threaten to cut those North
Atlantic sea lanes in time of war; and the Mediterranean, which
was once dominated by the United States Navy, is now heavily
populated by the Soviet Navy as well. While the Soviet Navy has
undergone explosive growth over the past decade to the formidable
armed force that it is today, the United States Navy has been
allowed to shrink to half its former size with more and more
ships aging and obsolescent. When the Arab oil is cut off by war
soon, Europe will have to fall back on its meager reserves, which
will run out within 60 to 90 days. Interdiction of NATO sea
lanes at that point by the Soviet Union could cause all of Europe
to fall like a plum into Soviet hands. This is especially true
in light of the short-range Soviet underwater missiles in
European territorial waters, which I mentioned in Audioletter No.
22 last month. So far only Great Britain shows signs of being
able to withstand such a course of events. As I mentioned last
month, the British government had requested the latest missile
coordinates from me, and I had supplied them. Of the 29 Soviet
missiles around the British Isles at that time, all but one had
been removed by the Royal Navy as of April 18--6 days ago.
However, I have been informed of 3 newly planted missiles there,
and I have relayed these to the British for action. Great
Britain also may have the benefit of her new North Sea oil fields
which, barring sabotage or the like, should make Britain
independent of foreign oil producers in the near future.

Since I spoke to you last, action has been taken in another
area also. Acting on information which I relayed, of the 8
missiles around southern Africa, seven have now been taken up.
At last report, however, the missile lying off Mozambique
targeted on Rhodesia was still in place. Such removals of
missiles are better than no action at all, but they are still no
more than holding actions. What is needed, if war is to be
prevented, is for this deadly cat-and-mouse game to be stopped
altogether by revealing to the whole world what the Soviet Navy
is up to. Late last September, as I revealed in monthly
Audioletter No. 16, the United States had a golden opportunity to
do just that, and to do so while the Soviet underwater missile
threat was only a small fraction of what it is now. At that
time, a Soviet missile-laying mini-sub equipped with
sonar-defeating design features entered Chesapeake Bay and became
trapped there, due to a malfunction that ultimately killed the
crew. It was a perfect opportunity for the United States to pick
up the sub, display it on television world-wide by satellite, and
tell the Soviet Union that the jig was up; but instead, as I
revealed in Audioletter No. 17 the following month, the Red
Friday agreement on October 1, 1976 reinstated a strained
alliance between the Rockefellers and the Soviets, and the Soviet
Navy was allowed to enter Chesapeake Bay under cover of darkness
and recover the mini-sub. But now, a similar opportunity exists
once again--not in American waters but in those of Norway. In
March 1977 a Soviet submarine entered the fjord of Folda on the
north coast of Norway. The Norwegians detected its presence and
sealed off the exit to wait for the sub to surface. On April 4,
1977, the story was broken in European press, although the
location was not mentioned. To my knowledge, however, it has
received no mention anywhere in the United States. I strongly
suggest to the Norwegian government that before the Soviet
submarine be allowed to escape, a search be made at the
navigational coordinates 64 35' 23" north, 10 23' 14" east. This
location is not far from where the Soviet submarine is trapped
and is the site of one of the seven Soviet underwater missiles
that have been planted recently in Norwegian waters. Should the
government of Norway so request, I will naturally provide the
other locations as well, through proper channels.

As for the United States, there continues to be no effort at
all to clear our waters of the Soviet nuclear weapons which
threaten our country. As of my latest report a few days ago, not
one of the 158 Soviet missiles and hydrogen bombs lurking in our
territorial waters has been removed, and I have not been
approached in any way by the United States government with
requests for their locations. Meanwhile the Soviet plutonium
cloud attacks on the United States are still continuing by means
of the new canisters which are being deployed close to shore
along the West Coast, which I mentioned last month. Of the 16
canisters which were deployed at the time I recorded Audioletter
No. 22 last month, 11 had been discharged as of April 15, but by
then there were 17 new ones. At last report, these canisters are
being deployed along the entire West Coast from San Diego to
Seattle. These are extremely easy and simple to deploy--for
example, they are dropped from aircraft flying under our radar
like the Soviet Bear bombers that we were told about by news
reports the other day. They are also planted by Soviet trawlers,
since they are allowed to enter our new 200-mile fishing zone to
catch certain fish there. The fact that this is being done was
proven by the arrested Soviet trawler Taras Shevchenko which was
carrying plutonium canisters in a compartment near the stern of
the ship.

Thus the maneuvering in preparation for Nuclear War One
continues with a strong naval emphasis. At one level,
Rockefeller agents in America appear to continue to cooperate in
the joint plan of conquest with the Soviets; but on the real
level the Soviets and the Rockefellers are both jockeying for a
decisive knock-out blow. In this, time is on the side of the
Soviet Union, so they're trying to delay war slightly while the
Rockefeller brothers are trying to hurry it up; and to condition
us all for it, the Carter Administration is flexing its muscles
to show us how strong it is when it comes to the Soviets. In
short order it has forcefully espoused Human Rights, handed the
Soviets an ultimatum on SALT talks, seized Soviet fishing
trawlers, chased Soviet Bear long-range turbo-prop bombers away
from the southeast coast of our country--and what's next? A
photo of a Soviet submarine in our waters? Already the
Rockefeller position has decayed further in the past several
months because of the further deterioration of their CIA undersea
super-missiles in the Atlantic and Pacific. Of the fleet of 14
such missiles which I described in Audioletter No. 20, January
1977, all 5 in the Pacific have now sprung leaks and are no
longer usable. Of the 9 in the Atlantic, 4 have now
failed--missiles #4, 6, 7, and 8. That leaves only 5 of the
original fleet of 14 CIA missiles still available for Rockefeller
threats against their Soviet partners. Meanwhile the Soviet
short-range missiles in our waters in the Atlantic and Pacific
Oceans and the Gulf of Mexico are now being used by the Soviets
to further weaken our position as a nation.

But, my friends, that's not all. For the very first time
Soviet missiles have now been planted in the Great Lakes. From
there they now threaten Chicago, Racine, Milwaukee, Cleveland,
Bay City, Erie, Buffalo, Rochester, and other cities of our
industrial heartland. At present there are exactly 50 such
missiles in the Great Lakes. These, however, are single warhead,
short-range missiles, and are even smaller in size than the
multiple warhead missiles that have been planted along our East,
West, and Gulf Coasts. As if this were not enough, I have just
been alerted that Soviet agents are now fanning out across
America planting small hydrogen bombs in selected inland lakes.
The primary targets here are major dams, but some other targets
are also involved. Since the Federal government refuses to take
action, it's imperative that State governments--especially those
in the West--take action now to protect their citizens. Security
patrols around major dams and lakes should be beefed up
immediately and placed on full alert. In addition, search
operations must be performed to locate those bombs that have
already been planted so that they can be removed. Already,
Soviet underwater nuclear devices have been planted in 21 places
within the United States, and more are being planted. Nineteen
(19) of the targets are dams, the other 2 are cities. CALIFORNIA
has 4--Oroville Dam north of Sacramento, Castaic Dam north of Los
Angeles, Shasta Dam in north California, and Otay Reservoir Dam
near San Diego. ARIZONA also has 4 bombs--Glen Canyon Dam,
Coolidge Dam, Theodore Roosevelt Dam, and Lake Pleasant Dam near
Phoenix. NEW MEXICO has 3--the Navajo Dam, Blue Mesa Dam, and
Alfa Butte Dam. MONTANA has 3--Fort Peck Dam, Yellow Tail Dam,
NEVADA, and WASHINGTON STATE so far have 1 bomb each, threatening
dams which are among the world's largest--these are respectively
Garrison Dam, Oahe Dam, Fort Randall Dam, Hoover Dam, and Grand
Coulee Dam. IDAHO has 2 bombs, both threatening towns--one is in
the north end of Cour d'Alene Lake, threatening the town of that
name; the other is in the north end of Lake Pend Oreille near the
town of Sandpoint. My friends, this would not have been possible
had it not been for the destruction of the FBI beginning with the
murder of J. Edgar Hoover. God help us all.

Topic #3--With our military situation so serious, one would
naturally expect someone to come forward to take action against
the Soviet underwater missiles. For example, General George S.
Brown, Chairman of the Joint Chiefs of Staff, brought about the
removal of many of these ocean and gulf missiles during August
and September 1976. But where is he now?!! My friends, here is
what has happened to General Brown. No matter how much the
tactics of public manipulation change and shift, some things
never change. I mentioned several months ago in connection with
the disgraceful Sputnik One episode that nowadays accolades and
awards go to the spoilers and traitors in our midst, while the
true heroes who dare to raise their heads are beaten down,
suppressed, and forgotten. Today there is no more grim testimony
to this fact than the current predicament of General George S.

As Chairman of the Joint Chiefs of Staff, General Brown is
the top military officer in the United States, and therefore in
some respects in the entire free world. As I revealed in detail
in monthly Audioletter No. 16 for September 1976, it was he,
General Brown, who more than any other person in the United
States government, prevented a surprise Soviet nuclear attack on
America during August and September 1976. Under extremely
adverse conditions, he obtained the go-ahead to remove Soviet
underwater missiles and hydrogen bombs then planted in our own
territorial waters and then ordered the United States Navy to do
the job, which it did quickly. And on September 16, 1976, I met
for over an hour with General Brown in his office at the Pentagon
to discuss the continuing Soviet underwater missile crisis and to
relay new information to him which had been prevented from
reaching him through normal channels. In meeting with me,
General Brown was accepting terrible personal risks, and he knew
it. He had overruled his entire staff in order to meet with me,
and the meeting itself was completely free of interruptions of
any kind. Nor was there any cut-off due to time; the meeting
simply continued without pressure until we finished the business
at hand. Then I left, along with an associate who had
accompanied me to the meeting as a witness. We drove away from
the Pentagon that day in a driving rainstorm; but the brave
patriot whose office we had just left now faced a far worse
personal storm--thanks to his efforts on our nation's behalf. I
warned my listeners about this in monthly Audioletter No. 16 last
September, and asked that everyone strengthen his hand by
expressing their support for him.

General Brown, alone among the top echelons of the United
States government, had stood by us and had saved millions of our
lives in the process. Now he was depending on us to stand by him
in his continuing efforts to carry out his Constitutional duties
to the letter. Some of us did so, my friends, but far too many
of us did not. During August and early September 1976, the Joint
Chiefs of Staff were flooded with demands for action against the
Soviet underwater missiles; but after that action was taken,
there was no such massive outpouring of thanks for General
Brown's crucial leadership or support for the continued positive
efforts needed to save our country. Far too many of us forget
that it is not enough just to complain about what is wrong; we
must also actively support that which is right, or it will wither
and die. After the crucial actions taken under General Brown's
leadership late last summer, far too many of us just relaxed and
went back to sleep, leaving General Brown to fend for himself.

Now I must tell you what has happened to General Brown as a
result. For many months now I have been cut off from direct
contact with General Brown; and in recent months General Brown
has seemed like a completely different person than in the past
whenever he appears in public. In place of the outgoing
personality which has been General Brown's trademark in the past,
there is nothing but resignation and acceptance of the dictates
of his civilian superiors. The change has been so dramatic that
it has even been commented upon by syndicated columnists, who are
mystified. What has happened to General Brown, my friends, is
known to very few. I myself have been able to confirm it only
within the past few days. General George S. Brown, the nation's
top military officer, is now virtually under house arrest. This
is exactly the same kind of confinement that was meted out, for
example, to Army Lieutenant William Calley during his court
martial for the My Lai massacre in Vietnam. But there are two
differences in General Brown's case. First, there has been no
court martial. Instead, he is living under the threat of a court
martial, for its twisted evidence and perjuring witnesses have
already been assembled. Second, General Brown's isolation at the
Pentagon and confinement to his Fort Myer residence are not
absolute. Instead, they are interspersed with very carefully
controlled appearances at official functions, since his absence
from these would quickly arouse suspicions that something was
terribly wrong. Now, should General Brown attempt again to step
out of line and defy those in high places by giving orders to
remove the missiles, doing his Constitutional duty, the suspended
threat of court martial would instantly come crashing down upon
him. By means of the elaborately doctored and falsified evidence
I've already mentioned, General Brown would be railroaded into
certain conviction for treason for doing his duty. Already
alleged statements by General Brown have been published recently
to make him appear to be a dangerous man. Were General Brown to
be courtmartialed with falsified evidence, it would destroy him
personally. It would also prevent his efforts from producing any
benefits to America--such as a resumption of the removal of
Soviet nuclear missiles from our waters. Any such orders of his
would be rescinded; and his courtmartial would be used to make
any attempts by him to warn America useless, by destroying his

As long ago as October, 1976, just a month after my meeting
with him, General Brown was given a powerful demonstration of the
ability of his enemies to crucify him publicly. As I discussed
that month in Audioletter No. 17, a six-month old interview of
General Brown was dredged up and used to subject him to intense
public embarrassment and criticism. A few alleged statements of
his from the interview were made public and played up by the
controlled major media to such an extent that he was forced to
make a public apology on nationwide television. Can you imagine?
All of that for a few relatively insignificant comments which, if
he really made them at all, had attracted no attention six months
earlier. This episode had just one purpose--to prove to General
Brown that if the falsified charges of treason should ever be
leveled at him, he would have no chance at all either to defend
himself or to do a service to America. His only recourse now
would be to himself publicly demand a court-martial, but even
that would not be successful without a massive outpouring of
public support for him ahead of time--and that, my friends, has
so far been denied him to the everlasting shame of our entire
nation. Should General Brown come to any physical harm, the
responsibility for it will rest squarely on the shoulders of
David, Nelson, Laurance, and John D. Rockefeller III; but
meanwhile, he's a secret captive, keeping millions of Americans
reassured that all is well merely by his presence on the scene.
Whenever a public or official appearance or statement by General
Brown is called for, it's arranged and carried out under the
watchful eyes of a heavy escort, although this is not always
apparent. Otherwise the openness, the accessibility, and warmth
that has always distinguished General Brown among newspaper
reporters is now gone. He's a virtual prisoner at the Pentagon,
held practically incommunicado except for the carefully
controlled communications and appearances I have already
mentioned. As soon as this Audioletter is released, you can
expect to see things happen that may seem to disprove what I am
telling you--for example, General Brown may become more visible
publicly for a while. It is even conceivable, though highly
unlikely, that this might even be carried to the point of having
General Brown publicly deny that he has come under any new
restrictions in recent months as the result, say, of the
unfavorable publicity he received some months ago. Should that
happen, keep in mind that General Brown is now a prisoner of war,
imprisoned by the enemies within our own midst; and we've already
seen many examples of the kinds of things American prisoners of
war are forced to say for propaganda purposes.

Yes, my friends, General Brown stood up for all of us only to
have too many of us let him down by failing to follow through
with our thanks and our overwhelming support; but there is one
way that we can still keep General Brown's great personal
sacrifice on our behalf from being in vain, and that is for us,
each and every one of us as individuals, to begin right now to do
whatever we can to save our beloved country. My friends, there's
no vacation from reality. It's up to you to do what you
can--there's no one else; and even though you may not be able to
do more than write a letter or two, do it. You never know how
far your few words may spread. They may pass from one person to
another, finally reaching the ear of someone you don't even know,
someone with far more resources than you have who may play a
vital role in saving our nation, yet who may never hear and never
act if you fail to do your part. If all you have to offer is 5
loaves and 2 fishes, offer it; you just might be amazed at the

Until next month, God willing, this is Dr. Beter. Thank you,
and may God bless each and every one of you.
