Edgar C. Bundy was Executive Secretary of Church League of America (Wheaton IL). He boasted that CLA had “7,000,000 cross-indexed cards on individuals, organizations and publications which serve the communistic cause in the United States.”
CLA acquired the files of former FBI Special Agent John G. Keenan as well as the California anti-communist newsletter Toscin.
J.B. Matthews (formerly with the Dies Committee) served as Research Director for CLA during the 1960’s.

Ex-Soviet spy who defected to the U.S. who is cited by many extreme right adherents as an authoritative and reliable source of information regarding post-Soviet intentions – BUT Golitsyn is described by another ex-communist spy who defected to the U.S. (Michael Goleniewksi) as a “disinformation agent”. This report illustrates how conspiracy theorists often present mutually exclusive “experts” as credible sources. This report also quotes extensively from FBI documents which falsify Golitsyn’s position.

Mullins was perhaps the most virulent anti-semite in postwar America but he often is referred to as merely “an historian” because of his books on the Federal Reserve. This report discusses Mullins’ life-long associations with and employment by neo-nazi, racist, and anti-semitic organizations and publications.
10pp – 10/11
Brief introduction to how I became interested in pursuing right-wing history and, in particular, FOIA requests on right-wing individuals, groups, publications, and controversies.
33pp – 09/09
Former FBI Special Agent W. Cleon Skousen is often cited as an expert about internal security matters because of his 16 year career inside the FBI. However his assignments during his FBI career were predominantly administrative, and not investigative, plus there are materially important misrepresentations concerning his credentials by his admirers. This report also presents the adverse judgments made by the FBI about Skousen’s post-FBI endeavors and associations.
20pp – 11/09
Like W. Cleon Skousen, Dan Smoot is also cited as an expert by many right-wing conspiracy believers because of his career in the FBI. However, like Skousen, Smoot’s credentials are inflated by his admirers. Senior FBI officials thought Smoot’s post-FBI activities wrongly exploited his connection to the Bureau. He was considered by them to be a “professional anti-communist”
16pp – 06/09
This report addresses the comments made by several conservative talk show commentators (such as Rush Limbaugh) which attempted to characterize Von Brunn as a product of “left-wing” ideology. In reality, Von Brunn spent his entire adulthood linked to and admiring the most extreme right-wing individuals, organizations and ideas in our nation.
In the future I will be posting reports on-line concerning the following subjects:
COMMUNIST PARTY USA
I plan to write a report which summarizes the content of dozens of FBI monographs pertaining to the CPUSA. Also, I hope to summarize the data which the Bureau compiled on the CPUSA as an organization, and in related FBI files pertaining to CPUSA membership, finances, security measures, factionalism, party line, publications, strategy and tactics.
DePugh founded the 1960’s right-wing paramilitary group The Minutemen.
Goff was intimately associated with several Gerald L.K. Smith enterprises. Goff headed Soldiers of the Cross and published Pilgrim’s Torch magazine. In the 1950’s, Goff produced an affidavit which claimed that fluoridation of water supplies was part of a Communist plot to “medicate” our people and make them more docile and compliant to Communist subversion. Goff is also responsible for distribution of a booklet concerning Communist “Psychopolitics” and “Brainwashing” which received widespread acceptance within right-wing conspiracy circles as a genuine document – but which was a hoax.
John Birch Society
I will greatly expand my existing 88-page report to incorporate considerable new material – including discussion of persons employed by the JBS as speakers whom were presented as “experts” about internal security matters – such as Delmar Dennis, Lola Belle Holmes, Pedro Luis Diaz Lanz.
I also plan to write two new chapters to discuss the history of racist and anti-semitic incidents within the Birch Society and a chapter which discusses libel lawsuits in which the JBS or its surrogates were involved.
In addition, I am working on a separate project which involves re-typing all 115-pages of the original notes which I took on the FBI main file on the JBS. My intention is to produce a document in chronological order by FBI serial number so that readers will be able to see the progression of developments which explain why the FBI concluded that the JBS was mis-informing our public and inflaming public sentiment about various subjects in ways that were harmful to legitimate anti-communism. This project will also incorporate scanned copies of key FBI documents into the text – and – I also plan to add FBI field office material to supplement the HQ file documents.
