Harry J. Dean


I was recruited by U.S. Intelligence by their uniquely convincing tactics.... (to avoid being indicted as an unregistered agent of a foriegn government). By that time in 1960 I had been a humanitarian supporter of the Cuban revolution, and an active member of Castro's 26th Of July Movement..... in the United States. I was 'to blow the whistle' on both The Fair Play For Cuba Committee, and my associates in The 26th Of July Movement. In the time frame of being appointed acting secretary of FPCC (Chicago) I was given the task of entering Cuba to gather information for U.S. Intelligence. Using the 'cover' of a pro-Cuba activist.....Cuban Intelligence (DGI) agent Fransisco Vega, put me through an interrogation usually reserved for suspected enemy agents (almost three hours at Havana Hdqrtrs) It was a most unpleasant ordeal. My humble story was borne out with apparently solid credentials, and certainly by check-outs Vega made with his U.S. contacts.

At a later debriefing with Central Intelligence and my usual... contact agents, when ask if I believed that the Cuban people would rise against Castro during an invasion by the U.S., I stated 'It is my sad duty to inform you that they will not attempt to aid in overthrowing that government. Giving the reasons, and apologizing for having to make such an unpopular report........

A second revolution was raging. The liberal establishment in the U.S. was under attack by ultra-conservative forces that had begun to organize in 1958. This fast growing power absorbed the anti-Castro Movement there. They used these Cubans to further their own 'rightist' goals, such as the American Communist Party was doing in exploiting the opposing pro-Castro Cubans. But among the widespread 'rightist' movement were assassin-minded persons that would take action to aid in seizing control of the U.S. government if only given the word.

Even being tight-knit with the individuals involved, except for bits and pieces of confusing information I failed to timely detect a clearer picture of the real and more subtle plot to kill the president... the plan move relentlessly... but a 'need-to-know' method of secrecy was being applied among my radical associates.

When the name of a Fair Play For Cuba Committee communist was broadcast throughout the rightist circuit after the airing of an August, 1963 radio program from Station WDSU, New Orleans, Louisiana, Lee Oswald was 'selected' by another of our JBS associates, retired U.S. Army General E.A. Walker of Dallas,Texas.

The subject was chosen by 'Guy" Gabaldon as 'the fall guy' in the secretive plot against Kennedy. None of us objected,and found it humorous to frame a communist. I quietly considered it as goofy as the weird, but hazy, arrangements to kill the president.

When Kennedy visited Mexico City in late June of 1962, Gabaldon in league with some rightist Mexican Federal Police Officials, was set to shoot president Kennedy. Only a last minute escape problem aborted that assassination scheme.....Two other of our associates...Lawrence John Howard - aka Alonzo Escruido and Loran Eugene 'Skip' Hall- aka Lorenzo Pacillo, were dispatched by Gabaldon to enlist to Oswald in (a phony CIA, Central Intelligence Agency set-up) at Gabaldon's Mexico City area office.

In 1962 I became a sincere member the new conservative movement as did a great number of other Republicans. The John Birch Society (JBS) was an invention and political extention of the Church (Latter-Day Saints, Mormon}. The JBS infrastructure was an exact miniture of the Church designed to serve as it's political arm in reaching where the Church was forbidden to go by U.S. laws of Church-State separation.

An extremely costly seizure of the Republican Party was the urgent and powerful first step taken by LDS-JBS for entrance into the legitimate political scene (a relentless goal of the Church hierarchy since it's 1830 founding). Their revival and use of the name 'conservatism' was merely as a title, a semantic weapon, to display opposition to the liberalism that dominated both Democrat and Republican parties, choking and limiting both political conservativism and Church ambitions. The more important purpose in exploiting this title was to draw-in the sincere, influencial and idealogical conservatives to serve our cause in many ways.

We were also instructed to infiltrate the Democratic Party apparatus at every level. The Democratic was taken over from the bottom and the top and it's liberalism was forever neutralized!

Kennedy continued setting up a liberal 'one world' system in following the United Nations plan soon after his election, as had Eisenhower and all of their predecessors after it's founding in 1945. All of these efforts gave little consideration to including the conservative ideology that, in the 1960s was only a mere political splinter.

The first 'fiver year plan' to usurp the power of government at any human or economic cost was the fast closing consideration of the upper-echelon LDS conspiracy through the use of their JBS action arm. A last minute loss of faith in their own costly and radical efforts against the so-called liberal/communist enemy, and an ever increasing fear that Kennedy ' just might ' be re-elected in 1964 created an urgency for the ' final solution '.

This long {five year} twilight struggle against the elected government of the United States was for world power. that power lay within an almost impotent United Nations Organization. Control and direction of that body would be realized by the subversives upon first neutralizing, then seizing the government by shock force, JFKs assassination.

Ezra Taft Benson, president of the LDS Church, was in the forefront of attacks on former President Eisenhower that branded 'Ike' a conscious agent of communism, along with all others of the so-called conservative movement, and readily led the way in calling President Kennedy and U.S. Supreme Court Chief Justice Warren ' comsymps ', communist sympathizers!

Through it's revolutionary JBS front, the LDS Church dumped millions of it's yearly billions into subverting operations and brilliantly devised, twisted and firey propaganda causing a national foreboding and fear that the U.S. government might actually be under communist influence and direction.

These, and their supporters, who wield this stolen power, expect to continue for hundreds of years in control of the present system now so wrongly titled Republican and conservative (and in the future by any other name).

Their guilty leadership, by stealth, with blood stained hands, reached out and picked the overripe fruit of all constitutional government power and control. Wherein all other whites, colors and nations are now and forever 'second place subordinates ' in all present and future schemes. These are to serve the arrogant LDS/JBS [plan for a world wide, totally materialistic, Church-State for the eternal comfort of this caucasic beast and it's political image!

Gabaldon's organization was called DAC, Drive Against Communism. When DAC came under the JBS, The John Birch Society banner the title was change to DACA, Drive Against Communist Aggression.

In late August, 1963, Gabaldon and I kept an appointment with former U.S. Congressman John H. Rousselot, then Western Director of the John Birch Society at his San Marino, California office. Gabaldon picked up ten thousand dollars as pre-arranged, from Rousselot. The money was for the 'Mexico Operation'..

In September, 1963 Oswald accompanied Hall and Howard to Gabaldon's Mexico City area office. Oswald then received instructions and funds from the impressive, but phony CIA 'officer' Gabaldon. The fate of both Oswald and Kennedy were there forever sealed! The trio later returned to the U.S. Hall and Howard eventually to California, and Oswald to Texas where two weeks later, October 1963 he began working at the book depository building in Dallas.

The poor slob was awaiting further instructions from another fake CIA contact that, among other details, requested him to deliver weapons, suppossedly to be picked up at his workplace along with other weapons to be donated and used by anti-Castro raiders.

The names Alonzo (Howard) and Lorenzo (Hall) were used by then as war names, and described in translation by Sylvia Odio as (Angelo) and (Leopoldo) Gabaldon returned again from Mexico in September 1963, he and I readied a huge mass of medical drugs and supplies gathered from several LDS doctors throughout Southern California.

Some were slated for Gabaldon's JBS front DACA in Mexico. The majority of these were destined to accompany Hall and Howard's car and trailer load of weapons and ammunition to No Name Key, Florida... to aid an anti-Castro raider group under command of Hall. This effort was organized by (LDS) W. Cleon Skousen and (JBS) John Rousselot, and chaired by anti-Castro Cubans........

The defeated raiders split up (after being arrested,and released) Hall and Howard, at Gabaldon's direction, to New Orleans, Louisiana picked up Oswald and continued on to Dallas, Texas where they made several stops to raise desperately needed funds. The three then crossed the border and drove to Mexico City..........

Kennedy's Dallas trip was a non-secret. It was known and leaked by mole agents (LDS) in-place that lurked for more than 60 years in every agency, service and bureau of U.S. government. The burrowing moles informed (RID) Reaserch Intelligence Department of the John Birch Society on a continuing basis concerning the movements and personal activities of the president.

Every separate,subversive effort of months was aimed at that fateful day. A previously framed fall guy (Oswald) with recently arranged (by my associates) pro-Communist connections to the Russian and Cuban embassies, would be assumed guilty... Oswald's alleged guilt destroyed the powerful and subversive Fair Play For Cuba Committee and, with it, Castro's influence in the American hemisphere.

Edwin A. Walker, removed from command and forced into retirement by the Kennedy administration,was acting on his own behalf,as much as for the 'new Americanist order' that he served in both military and civilian life. Walker was more than a leader of ultra-conservatism. He was an arrogant, powerless, but explosive force, enjoying the praise of his LDS/JBS co-conspirators and followers. When Kennedy entered Texas, his life was in the deadly hands of 'extremist veteran riflemen' of Walkers former Munich, Germany 24th infantry command!

In an exclusive interview granted to Valley Publications, former undercover operative for the FBI, Harry Dean, has stated that the John Birch Society had a heavily armed network of citizen soldiers ready to take to the streets in late 1963 and early 1964, if President Johnson and Chief Justice Warren did not quickly find Lee Harvey Oswald (a supposed communist sympathizer) guilty of the murder of President Kennedy. The threat was delivered to Johnson and Warren, within a few days after the assassination, by intelligence sources and by agents of the power structure that eliminated the President. LBJ had the choice - nation-wide internal strife or knuckling under to the threat and thereby giving this minority force a position of recognition. Johnson opted for the second choice.

Dean, an undercover operative for the FBI from 1960 to 1965, had been assigned by the FBI to infiltrate the Birch Society. In that role, he was active in the Covina, (Calif.) chapter of the JBS from 1962 through 1964. During Dean's tour with the Society he states they planned three major activities against John Kennedy: a planned assassination in Mexico City in 1962 that was called off: the assassination in Dallas; and the threat against a thorough investigation. In each case, according to Harry Dean, Congressman John Rousselot (R-San Marino) was involved in the planning. Rousselot was Western Director of the John Birch Society during the first half of the '60s.

During the years when Harry Dean had been acting as an active member of the Covina Birch Society, the main meeting place for all the anti-Kennedy activities was at a residence on San Pierre Street in El Monte. The Birchers were connected with anti-Castro Cubans, often mentioned as assassination suspects, through the Drive Against Communist Aggression (DACA). The DACA was an anti-Communist organization directed by members of the JBS, which had attracted certain Cubans who were in the Los Angeles area during 1962-63, trying to enlist support for another invasion of Castro controlled Cuba. The DACA operated in Mexico as well as the U.S.. According to Dean, World War II hero Guy (Gabby) Gabaldon was the Mexican Director, while Ray Flieshman of Whittier was the U.S. Director. Another active member of DACA and the Covina JBS, who had a close relationship with Gabaldon, was Dave Robbins, who at the time (1962-63), was a high ranking employee of the Fluor Corporation. (J. Robert Fluor and John Rousselot had been known to be close political allies.) In a number of different circumstances, Dean was able to determine that Gabaldon, Robbins, Flieshman, and Rousselot had been involved in planning the aborted assassination of JFK in Mexico City, June 1962.

Harry Dean had many occasions to observe and relate with much publicized Cuban-American Loran Eugene Hall-aka Lorenzo Pacillo-aka Ship Hall and Laurence Howard-aka Alonzo Escuirdo. Hall and Howard had a close association with former General Edwin Walker, of Texas, whenever Walker visited the Covina JBS. Dean recalls specific meetings where Walker, Rousselot, Hall, Howard, Gabaldon and himself (Dean) laid the plans to frame Lee Harvey Oswald, who they thought was a communist, as the assassin. Per Dean, Hall and Howard left the San Pierre Street house in October 1963, with arms and medicines, and the plans to implicate Oswald.

The subject of eliminating President Kennedy was never discussed as a subject of the JBS meetings, but Harry Dean claims the plans for the assassination were conceived in small group meetings. At one time or another Harry Dean was witness to the plans of the assassination of JFK by different combinations of John Rousselot, Loran Hall, Laurance Howard, Guy Gabaldon, Edwin Walker, Dave Robbins, Ray Fleishman, and not previously mentioned Covina JBS members Ed Peters and Ed Butler.

According to Dean, the directions taken by John Kennedy were directly in opposition to the John Birch Society. As ultimate goals and they, in conjunction with DACA, took matters into their own hands. To protect exposure through an investigation, the Society sent threats of nation-wide street warfare, to the administration via secret agents, who they were sure had infiltrated the various radical and reactionary organizations throughout the U.S., if a speedy and simple verdict was not the action.

Harry Dean, an ex-employee of the Federal Bureau of Investigation and the Central Intelligence Agency, has marble-hard proof that Republican Congressman John Rousselot from California's 26th Congressional District, and former Army General Edwin A. Walker of Dallas, engineered the death of John F. Kennedy. At the time, Rousselot was western director of the John Birch Society and Walker was a member of the right wing organization.

The ex-agent has an avalanche of evidence, including several tape recordings of Rousselot and Walker making threats against President Kennedy's life...

The former agent infiltrated the John Birch Society for several months and gathered firsthand information about the group's activities including plans of certain members to kill the 35th president of the United States.

He said Rousselot and Walker convinced other members of the Birch Society that a "dirty communist" tag should be placed on John Kennedy and that he should be marked for death to save the United States from "falling into Red hands."

Dean said (General Walker also was obsessed with hatred for both John and Robert Kennedy and had a "personal grudge" to settle.

"When Robert Kennedy was attorney general he ordered his aides to imprison Walker in a Federal mental institution at Springfield, Missouri, following Walker's involvement in the racial disorders in 1962 at Oxford, Mississippi." Dean said.

"In fact, Walker's clothing was torn off him and he was thrown naked into a military airplane and flown to Missouri. Robert Kennedy then leaked stories to the news media that Walker was a mental case," the ex-agent said...

"I attended many meetings of the John Birch Society prior to the assassination in 1963 and I heard details of the Kennedy kill plan being discussed each time we met," Dean said.

"I know that John Rousselot organized the murder plot and with other right-wingers financed it. General Walker ramrodded and trained the hired guns, Dean said.

"I was with a man in September 1963 when he picked up $10,000 from Rousselot. The money was taken to Mexico City to help finance the murder of Mr. Kennedy'. The assassination planning team operated out of Mexico City for several weeks before the president was shot in Dallas," Dean added

Dean said that he has been staying behind the scenes for many years and that his family has lived in constant fear.

"My wife and children have gone through hell. The life of a government undercover agent isn't the glorified one as depicted on television and in the movies.

"Now, however, I have decided to bring out the truth regardless of the price. I can't keep living with this horrible burden on my conscious. It haunts me day and night," the former agent said.

Dean said many persons will ask why he waited so long to reveal the facts about the Kennedy assassination which occurred almost 12 years ago.

"The truth of the matter is. I told my superiors about this plot when I first learned of the details, but they ignored it," Dean added.

The former agent said all the articles printed in recent weeks about the CIA and the Mafia masterminding the Kennedy murder are like the "Mother Goose and Little Red Riding Hood" stories . entertaining, but not factual.

"The news media has been playing right into the hands of the real Kennedy killers by creating a smoke screen which continues to hide them from justice," Dean said...

"If the assassins had attempted to shoot Mr. Kennedy at the Trade Mart, they would either have been killed or captured because the whole area was crawling with federal officers who were heavily armed. Lee Harvey Oswald, working as a federal security agent, had performed his job well," Dean said.

W. R. Morris was a good investigative reporter but went on to write several stories contributing them to me, and were his own ideas, and about which I learned many years later. Morris was angry as I would not agree to go along with a book he intended to write. One example is a publication called "The Secret Papers Of Harry Dean", I received a copy of it from Gary Buell in 2004 and realized it and other such writings by Morris were angry attempts to involve me, by placing his own words in my mouth.

History [ edit | edit source ]

Season 1 [ edit | edit source ]

Along with Harry Spangler, he is a "professional" paranormal investigator. He also co-runs the website HellHoundsLair.com. Ed and Harry attempt to investigate paranormal activity at a shack, where they run into the Winchesters, whom they hypocritically label guys looking for thrills. Upon finding no evidence of paranormal activity, both parties leave, only to later return upon hearing of a girl who was hung and strangled by a ghost named Mordechai Murdoch, whom their website list many legends about. As the police were guarding the house, Dean lets the amateur ghost hunters get spotted. By the time the duo manages to elude the cops and return to the shack, the Winchesters burst out the front door, being chased by Murdoch, who disappears before leaving the house.

After being released, Ed and Harry post another legend. Harry soon gets second thoughts about going back, but Ed insisted that doing so will get them a network deal and sex with girls. They are then approached by the Winchesters, who trick them into posting that Mordechai can be killed by iron rounds, which the duo quickly post on their website, but their server crash before the new legend could be put in effect. After everyone gets out of the house alive, Dean burns it down so Mordechai would go down with it. Afterwards, Ed and Harry got a call from a Hollywood producer and headed out to Hollywood to meet with him, not realizing that it was actually Sam who called them, pretending to be the producer. He and Harry later create Ghostfacers, which they try to get picked as a TV series.

Season 3 [ edit | edit source ]

Ed and Harry later rename themselves the "Ghostfacers", recruiting Ed's adoptive sister Maggie, Kenny Spruce and Alan J. Corbett. They meet up again with Sam and Dean by accident when they enter Morton House on leap day with camera equipment to catch paranormal activity on film. Dean admonishes Ed for investigating, as Sam showed him missing persons reports going back half a century, all who "stayed the night" and were never seen again. Harry and Maggie then come running down and show footage of a ghost from the 50's being shot, which the Winchesters identify as a Death Echo, a ghost stuck in a loop. The Winchesters try ushering the Ghostfacers out the door before Ed notices that Corbett is absent. They soon learn that Corbett was abducted by the restless spirit in the house, who then proceeds to lock the survivors inside. They then spot another echo of a man who was run down by a train, whom Dean tries to shock him out of his loop but fails.

Further investigating the house, Dean determines that the last man to own the house, Freeman Daggett, was a morgue janitor and loner, who stole corpses to "play" with, to Ed and Harry's disgust. The spirit of Daggett soon kidnaps Sam and separates Dean and Spruce from the others. Dean instructs Ed to get the salt from his duffel bag and create a circle around themselves. They later spot the ghost of Corbett, reliving his death. Harry encourages Ed to try and talk Corbett out of his death echo, revealing the latter's feelings for Ed. Ed succeeds, allowing Corbett to take on Daggett. Come morning, the surviving Ghostfacers and Winchesters escape the Morton House. The Ghostfacers later compile their footage into a pilot episode in tribute to Corbett's memory, while grossly exploiting the manner of his death. They show their pilot to the Winchesters, who warn that publicly releasing them will either get them a punch in the face or straitjacket or both. After the Winchesters leave, Ed finds that they left their duffel bag behind, in which he finds an electromagnet which wipes all of the Ghostfacer's hard drives, including their pilot.

Harry J. Dean - History

In 1966-1967, the Wilmington office had a staff of 24, and served 2,217 families and children, and provided counseling to 799.

Priests in a Parish: We use the following convention to show a priest's place among the clergy of a parish: 1/2 means that he is the first priest listed in the Official Catholic Directory (usually the pastor) and that there is a total of two priests at the parish. The shorthand 3/4 means that the priest is listed third on a four-priest roster. See our sample page from the Directory.

Note: The Official Catholic Directory aims to report the whereabouts of Catholic priests in the United States on January 1 of the Directory's publication year. Our working assumption is that a priest listed in the Directory for a given year was at the same assignment for part of the previous year as well. However, Kenedy and Sons will sometimes accept updates well into the year of publication. Diocesan clergy records are rarely available to correct this information. The Directory is also sometimes misleading or wrong. We have tried to create an accurate assignment record, given the source materials and their limitations. Assignment records are a work in progress and we are always improving the records that we post. Please email us with new information and corrections.


Watergate: How John Dean Helped Bring Down Nixon

John Dean testifying for the second day before the Senate Watergate Committee. He said he was sure that President Nixon not only knew about the Watergate cover-up but also helped try to keep the scandal quiet.

President Richard Nixon might have gotten away with it if it weren&apost for John Dean. In June 1973, Dean testified before Congress that Nixon knew about the Watergate cover-up. Not only that, Dean said he suspected there was taped evidence𠅊nd he was he right.

“There are few times in American history where the entire country is focused on one television event,” says James D. Robenalt, a lawyer and author who lectures with Dean about Watergate. “One of them was the Kennedy assassination, one of them was the moon landing, one of them was 9/11, and the other one is John Dean’s testimony. It was that important and that significant.”

Dean was Nixon’s White House counsel on June 17, 1972, the night burglars broke into Democratic National Committee headquarters at the Watergate complex in Washington, D.C. He had no prior knowledge of the break-in or the White House’s involvement. Yet over the next several months, Dean became, as he put it, the �sk officer” for the Watergate cover-up.

𠇎verybody kind of went through him,” Robenalt says. “He did things like [facilitate payment] to the people who had been arrested to keep them quiet… Which was an obstruction of justice, because they were trying to keep witnesses from honestly and fully testifying before a grand jury about what happened.”

Dean knew that the people receiving payment were involved in the burglary. But he didn’t fully comprehend that he was committing a crime until later, after Nixon won the 1972 election. “One of the burglars called somebody in the White House and just said we’re keeping quiet because of the money that we’re getting,” Robenalt says. 𠇊nd then it just hit [Dean] right in the face.”

When Dean realized that he was implicated in an illegal cover-up, he didn’t do the right thing immediately. At first, he shredded incriminating files. But on March 21, 1973, he went to the Oval Office and told Nixon there was 𠇊 cancer” on the presidency that would take them all down they didn’t stop it. Dean could tell that Nixon had no intention of coming clean, so he decided to, himself.

Before Dean testified before Congress in the Watergate hearings, Nixon called Dean into his office in the Executive Office Building to try and make sure that Dean didn’t implicate him in his testimony. However, his bizarre behavior helped precipitate his downfall.

“You know when I told you we could get a million dollars [to continue to pay the convicted burglars to remain silent] I was just kidding?” Nixon awkwardly asked at that April 15 meeting. Dean said he hadn’t thought that but he𠆝 take his word.

Then Nixon stood up from his chair, walked over to a corner of the office and whispered, “I was wrong to promise clemency for [burglar E. Howard] Hunt when I spoke with Chuck Colson, wasn’t I?” Dean replied, “Yes, Mr. President, that would be considered an obstruction of justice.”

Dean thought it was very weird that Nixon had moved to a different of the room and whispered that question, and he wondered if Nixon had done so because he was secretly taping the conversation and didn’t want that part to be audible. When he testified in June that Nixon had knowingly obstructed justice through the Watergate cover-up, he mentioned this suspicion.

“I don’t know if a tape exists,” Dean said. 𠇋ut if it does exist…I think this Committee should have that tape because it would corroborate many of the things this Committee has asked me.” Indeed, because other high-level officials lied in their Watergate testimony, the discovery of tapes would be one of the only ways Dean could back up his story about the president’s involvement.

It was just a hunch, but it led to a bombshell discovery. A few weeks later Senate investigators asked presidential aide Alexander Butterfield if he knew about any such tapes, and they couldn’t have picked a better person to question. Not only was Butterfield one of only a few people who knew about the taping system, he was actually the person who helped the Secret Service to install it at Nixon’s request.

“I’m sorry you asked,” Butterfield responded. 𠇋ut, yes, there was a taping system that taped all presidential conversations.”

The tapes were what brought the whole thing down. Nixon had microphones in the Oval Office, the Cabinet Room, his Executive Office Building office and the Aspen Lodge at Camp David, and also recorded phone calls in the Lincoln Sitting Room. After the Supreme Court ordered Nixon to hand over the tapes to Congress in the summer of 1974, prosecutors found they corroborated Dean’s testimony and implicated the president in the cover-up.

“[Dean] was first and one of the only, actually, in the higher echelons to give honest testimony,” Robenalt says. “Other people who testified, including the chief of staff and the attorney general, they all went to jail for lying about what was going on.”

Dean made a deal where he received a reduced sentence for providing key witness testimony and pleading guilty to obstruction of justice. He served four months in prison and was disbarred from practicing law in D.C. and Virginia.

Still, some of the higher-level Watergate conspirators didn’t actually get a much harsher punishments than Dean. Former Attorney General John Mitchell and former Chief of Staff H.R. Haldeman each served a year and a half in jail for their involvement.

Nixon—the center of the whole scandal—received no punishment at all. He resigned on August 8, 1974 to evade impeachment. One month later, his former vice president, Gerald Ford, pardoned Nixon so that he𠆝 never have to stand trial for his crimes, which were supported by evidence Nixon recorded himself.
