"VAST Right-Wing Conspiracy"
"Scaife, a fourth-generation heir to the Mellon fortune, is a billionaire
who has funded numerous anti-Clinton ventures ..."
So, who's this Richard Mellon Scaife? Who are these Mellons?
When the OSS was first founded, Dulles protege Bill Casey (CIA director
after Bonesman George Bush) presided over the European theatre, where covert
operations were financed by Wall Street "nobility" from Anglophile Skull and
Bones families. For example, Junius Morgan (son of J. P.) was OSS "treasurer." Casey's
job later passed to David Bruce of Chase Manhattan and Kuhn-Loeb, early member of
the Council on Foreign Relations and, via British Intelligence's Sir William
Wiseman, member also of the "Rhodes Society." Bruce's brother-in-law was PAUL
MELLON, millionaire banker [son of Andrew Mellon, Hoover's Treasury Secretary and
ambassador to Great Britain] and OSS station chief in London, liaison to
"After the war, certain influential members of the Mellon family
maintained close ties with the CIA. The Mellon family foundations have been
used repeatedly as conduits for Agency funds. Furthermore, Richard Helms was
a frequent weekend guest of the Mellon patriarchs in Pittsburgh during his
tenure as CIA director (1966-1973)."

Another member of the CIA-allied Mellon family was WILLIAM MELLON
HITCHCOCK, Timothy Leary's "Godfather" and "the Daddy Warbucks of the
Counterculture." In the early 60s, Billy Mellon-Hitchock almost singlehandedly
bankrolled mass-production and distribution of LSD (which, hardly by
coincidence, was at the time the subject of testing by the CIA's secret MK-
ULTRA program) -- financing this effort through known CIA fronts like Castle
Bank in the Bahamas [founded by Watergate burglar E. Howard Hunt's onetime
boss, Paul Helliwell, paymaster for the Bay of Pigs invasion], the Meyer
Lansky syndicate's bank of choice for its money-laundering. Its special
clientele also included Miami mob ally Bebe Rebozo, President Richard M.
Nixon, Nixon campaign contributor and Golden Triangle heroin druglord Robert
Vesco, the CIA's George Bush, and certain anti-Castro Cubans ...

The Hoover Institution near Stanford University, a right-wing "think-
tank" which masterminded the campaigns to elect both Ronald Reagan and George
Bush, has long been a favored recipient of funding from the SARAH MELLON
Sitting on its board of directors in 1963, when the Hoover Institution
was searching for a Republican candidate to succeed the newly assassinated
John F. Kennedy, was none other than RICHARD MELLON SCAIFE.
By the 1980s, when the Hoover Institution was plotting the candidacy of
George Bush, its directorate read like an OSS/CIA reunion. [By the way, there
WAS such a reunion in London in 1981, where ex-OSS operatives like Margaret
Thatcher and CIA boss Bill Casey toasted old times, and NEW times under
Its directors included Emil Mosbacher Jr, State Department chief of
protocol under Nixon, whose brother Robert was then co-chairman of the
Republican National Committee and the national chairman of "Bush for
President"; William B. Macomber Jr, CIA, once special assistant to John Foster
Dulles and Ambassador to Iran; Philip Habib, Reagan's special ambassador to
the Middle East; A. Carol Kotchian, president of Lockheed (implicated in CIA
scandals throughout the '80s); Donald Rumsfield, RAND and CIA, right-hand man
to Richard Nixon and special NATO representative;
Hewlett-Packard's David Packard, like his predecessor Thomas Watson of IBM
(OSS) "consultant" employed by the NSA and CIA; and directors of two other
conservative think tanks --largely staffed by CFR members and Anglophile
OSS/CIA veterans like William F. Buckley. Jeane Kirkpatrick (husband in OSS)
and General Alexander Haig--
