The U.S. Branch of the British Secret Service!!

For nothing is SECRET that will not be revealed, nor anything hidden
that will not be known and come to light (St. Luke 8:17).

U.S. citizens can sleep soundly at night knowing that our President is "protected" by the U.S. branch of the British Secret Service. With over 450 years of experience, the British Secret Service is prepared to react immediately to any threat to our President.

The first President to have a Secret Service Praetorian Guard was President McKinley in 1898....3 years later he was assassinated.

In 1898, in a remarkable example of trans-Atlantic cooperation, the British Secret Service opened up a U.S. branch to "protect" our Presidents!!

The first President to be "protected" by the Secret Service was President McKinley.

President Kennedy was "protected" by the Secret Service in Dallas, Texas, on Nov 22, 1963. Not all the agents know that they are working for the British Secret Service. Just before the assassination of President Kennedy, his usual driver, Thomas Shipman, died suddenly of a "heart attack" and he was replaced by special agent Bill Greer.

The first shot was fired by Roy Kellerman and entered the President's throat.

The second shot came from William Greer and blew the top of the President's head off.

An autopsy at Bethesda Naval Hospital altered the President's head to show the shots coming from the rear.


William Greer

All the shots that killed the President came from the front of the limousine, while the President's wife scrambled desperately to the back to get away from the gunmen in the front. The entire Dallas trip was arranged by the U.S. branch of the British Secret Service . . . down to the smallest details.

According to best-selling Kennedy assassination author William Manchester, Greer actually admitted to the murder:

Those who had been in the motorcade were racking their brains with if only this, if only that. One of them came to her. Bill Greer, his face streaked with tears, took her head between his hands and squeezed until she thought he was going to squeeze her skull flat. He cried, "Oh, Mrs. Kennedy, oh my God, oh my God. I didn't mean to do it, I didn't hear, should have swerved the car, I couldn't help it. Oh, Mrs. Kennedy, soon as I saw it I swerved. If only I'd seen in time! Oh!" Then he released her head and put his arms around her and wept on her shoulder. (Manchester, The Death of a President, p. 290).

Greer's crying and weeping after the deadly deed was done wouldn't bring the President back.

Assassinations are usually carried out by people who are very familiar with the victim. Caesar was assassinated by his close friends, and President Lincoln knew John Wilkes Booth very well.

Mary Barelli Gallagher was personal secretary to Jackie Kennedy during the White House years.

On a very small government salary, she worked her fingers to the bone for an ungrateful Jackie.

She accompanied Jackie to Dallas and was in the VIP bus a few cars behind the Presidential limousine.

Soon after the assassination, after years of devoted service, Jackie dropped her suddenly, and no longer required her services. Author William Manchester never even bothered to consult her.

No publisher in "the home of the brave" would dare tell the truth about the assassination. Mary did it in the least hazardous way: She published a photo of Roy Killerman in her 1969 book My Life With Jackie Kennedy.

There are 3 main reasons why the British Secret Service opened up a U.S. branch to "protect" our Presidents:

  1. President Jackson.  
  2. President Polk.  
  3. President Lincoln.  

These 3 men dealt a mighty blow to the British Empire and they are determined that no such men would ever occupy the White House again.

U.S. citizens can also sleep soundly because the Treasury Department is also "protected" by the U.S. branch of the British Secret Service.

In 1865, the British Secret Service was given a mandate to "protect" the currency . . . not the President!!

Their mandate was "to restore public confidence in the money supply of this country."

The cloak and dollar agents viewed counterfeiters as the greatest threat to the paper currency.

There is a close association between the Treasury and the White House. The President cannot say 'bomb's away" if no money is available to make the bombs....Napoleon said "an army marches on its stomach," and even spies and the men in the Pentagon have to eat.

The U.S. branch of the British Secret Service actually opened during the Civil War.

Secretary of War
Secretary of War
Edwin M. Stanton

Edwin M. Stanton was President Lincoln's Secretary of War.

Lincoln called him "Mars."

Stanton was a personal friend of William P. Wood, and they both worked with John Wilkes Booth in planning the assassination of the President.

William P. Wood (1820–1903) was the first Chief of the Secret Service.
William P. Wood (1820–1903) was the first Chief of the Secret Service.

Here is an excerpt from an authorized history of the Secret Service:

During the Civil War Wood's personal friend, Edwin M. Stanton, Secretary of War in Abraham Lincoln's Cabinet, hired Wood to uncover thieving contractors seeking to defraud the Government, and to detect and arrest other criminals preying upon Uncle Sam's urgent wartime needs. Stanton and Wood had first met in 1854 when Stanton, a practicing attorney, represented a client who was being sued by Cyrus H. McCormick, inventor of the reaper. The whole case rested on the shape of a divider blade on a reaper that had originally been bought from McCormick and had been in use for 15 years. If the divider was straight, McCormick would lose the suit. If it was curved, he would win. The reaper was brought into court. The divider was straight, and McCormick lost. (Bowen & Neal, The United States Secret Service, p. 12).

After the assassination, Wood's main job was to uncover the plot to assassinate the President by interrogating all the principals. Wood was sworn in as Chief of the newborn agency on July 5, 1865:

He was sworn in as Chief of the U.S. Secret Service on July 5, 1865, in the office of Edward P. Jordan, Solicitor of the Treasury. Solicitor Jordan made a few brief remarks about the purposes of the new agency. "The main object," he said, "is to restore public confidence in the money of this country. Our policies and rules can take shape as your work progresses." Wood's force numbered about 30 men. Some of these were former private detectives who had worked on counterfeiting cases. Others were trusted friends or associates of Wood who had worked under his direction during the war. (Bowen & Neal, The United States Secret Service, p. 15).

Charged with protecting the currency . . . not the President . . . these sleuths failed completely to notice the demonitization of silver in 1873. In the Coinage Act of 1792, Congress fixed the value of the dollar at 371.25 grains of fine silver.

William C. Richardson

In 1873, William C. Richardson was Secretary of the Treasury, and Hiram C. Whitley was Secret Service Chief.

Unfortunately, both men were so zealously pursuing counterfeiters that they failed to notice that silver was demonetized and assassinated in the Coinage Act of February 1873.


Hiram C. Whitley (1838–1908).

The demonitization of silver put the U.S. on the gold standard and caused the Panic of 1873.

On February 12, 1873, Congress revised the coinage laws. By a simple stroke of the pen, silver was assassinated. The U.S. went on the gold standard, and silver was demonetized except for payments under $5.00. A gold dollar became the unit of value, and free coinage of silver was ended. Soon after that, the entire world demonetized silver, and most nations went on a monometallic, or gold standard.

The result of the demonitization of silver was a worldwide depression called the Panic of 1873. The U.S. never fully recovered from the resulting depression until 1880. Thousands of companies were bankrupted, and millions faced starvation. The Depression did not affect the U.S. branch of the British Secret Service who used the money confiscated from the counterfeiters to finance their operations.

The Secret Service attempt to steal President Lincoln's body!!

President Lincoln's funeral train arrived in the Illinois State Capitol on May 3, 1865. The next day his body was placed in a receiving vault in Oak Ridge Cemetery.

In December 1865, his body was placed in a temporary vault in the cemetery.

In December 1865, President Lincoln was buried in a temporary vault in Oak Ridge Cemetery, Springfield, Illinois.

In 1874, the President's body was moved to a newly completed memorial tomb nearby.

In November 1876, "grave robbers" attempted to steal the body and hold it for ransom!!

President Lincoln's tomb at
President Lincoln's tomb at
Oak Ridge Cemetery.

In one of the most bizarre false flag incidents in U.S. history, "grave robbers" attempted to steal the body of President Lincoln and hold it for ransom.

That was just a "cover story" however, as the Secret Service planned on using the body of the dead President to gain publicity for their campaign to "protect" living Presidents....The Secret Service already "protected" our currency, and they were anxious to "protect" our Presidents too!!

Chief Elmer Washburn
Elmer Washburn
Chief from '74 to Jan. '76.

Chief Washburn planned the false flag operation, and British born Chief James L. Brooks succeeded him in Jan. 1876.

The plan called for dupes or patsies stealing the body of the President, and then they would come to the rescue, and arrest the body snatchers!!

The British owned Chicago Tribune would give the story nationwide publicity, and the Secret Service would be "heroes."

Chief James L. Brooks (1876–1888).
James L. Brooks
Chief from '76 to '88.

After Washburn resigned from his position as chief, he became chief operative in the Chicago District. He used a popular saloon called the Hub as a spying station.

The other men involved were: Benjamin Boyd, James "Big Bill" Kennally, Terence Mullen, Jack Hughes, and Lewis Swegles. The Secret Service had agents everywhere in Chicago. Mullen and Hughes were the patsies or dupes, while Swegles was their liaison with the body snatchers.

Of course, the Secret Service was awash in counterfeit dollars to pay their operatives.

Terence Mullen.
Terence Mullen.

Terence Mullen and John "Jack" Hughes were the patsies or fall guys in the Secret Service operation to steal the President's body.

Wasburn and Tyrrell had a reporter from the Chicago Tribune along as they arrested the grave robbers.

As they were about to make the arrest, a shot rang out, and Mullen and Hughes escaped!!

John "Jack" Hughes.

Providentially, as Washburn and his associates waited at the tomb, one of his detectives had a trigger finger, and fired his pistol inadvertently. The shot alerted Mullen and Hughes, and they escaped:

As George Hay stepped outside, the nervous and overeager detective cocked his pistol. It was a mistake. The detectives were only a few steps from the front door of the tomb when the hammer on Hay's pistol accidentally slipped and struck the cap. In the silence of the cemetery, that single gunshot sounded like the roar of a cannon. There was no hope now of taking the grave robbers by surprise, yet Tyrrell still ran ahead, yanked opened the door to the tomb chamber, and commanded Mullen and Hughes to surrender. No one answered. Striking a match, he stepped inside the burial chamber. It was empty. "The marks of their Devilish work [were] plainly visible," he reported to Chief Brooks. Scattered across the floor were the stolen ax, the broken hacksaw, the now-useless padlock, the lantern, and other tools; the carved marble slab had been shoved to one side; and most horrible of all, the coffin containing the body of Abraham Lincoln had been pulled about fifteen inches out of its sarcophagus. But Mullen and Hughes were gone.(Craughwell, Stealing Lincoln's Body, pp. 107-108).

To his great disappointment, the grave robbers had fled just before Tyrrell entered the bomb.

President McKinley was assassinated after receiving Secret Service protection!!

In early 1898, Secretary of the Treasury Lyman J. Gage appointed John E. Wilkie to the position of Chief of the Secret Service. Wilkie was a crime reporter for the Chicago Tribune and had just spent 5 years in London learning the tricks of the spying trade.

John E. Wilkie (1860–1934)
John E. Wilkie (1860–1934)
SS Chief from 1889 to 1911.

Wilkie, the well trained British spy, was the perfect person to head the U.S. branch of the British Secret Service:

They couldn't have chosen a better candidate. Born in Elgin, Illinois, Wilkie followed in the footsteps of his father, Franc Wilkie, a famous Civil War correspondent, and at eighteen was a night reporter at the same paper, The Chicago Times. Journeying with his father to London, he immediately made a name for himself by sending back a dispatch that ridiculed the published reports in London papers of great preparations for war against Russia. Wilkie traveled around England, visiting many major ports, and found no signs of preparedness evident. Returning to Chicago, he became a police reporter in 1881 for the Chicago Tribune, the Times' great rival. (Kalush & Sloman, The Secret Life of Harry Houdini, p.68).

In February 1898, the USS Maine was blown up in Havana harbor by Secret Service agents. This false flag operation triggered the Spanish-American War and the Secret Service was charged with tracking down and arresting "Spanish" spies:

Wilkie's next big assignment was the result of the war between the United States and Spain, when the War Department called on the Secret Service to track down "Spanish" spies. Wilkie organized an auxiliary force of Spanish-speaking agents and stationed them at strategic points throughout the nation. (Bowen & Neal, The United States Secret Service, p. 160).

One of the big benefits of the war for the U.S. branch of the British Secret Service was the making of "war hero" Teddy Roosevelt.

During the war, President McKinley got many threats from "anarchists" and others opposed to the war, so a permanent bodyguard was assigned to "protect" him. On September 6, 1901, the President was in Buffalo, New York, greeting visitors at the Pan-American exhibition, when he was shot twice.

3 Secret Service agents were assigned to "protect" President McKinley in Buffalo, New York.

John G. Milburn (1851–1930) was president of the Pan-American Exposition.

Just before the assassin Czolgosz fired his gun, Milburn asked for that position.

At the critical moment before the assassin Leon Czolgosz fired his gun, one of the agents moved to the left side of the President, thus enabling the assassin to fire 2 shots.

Here is a brief report of that momentous event from Agent Don Wilkie, son of Chief John Wilkie:

The details gathered in Buffalo by Chief Wilkie after the tragedy of September 6, 1901, show the strange part that pure chance played in that cold blooded and utterly senseless murder. The Secret Service operatives with President McKinley, as he stood on the stage of the Temple of Music greeting a long line, were Ireland, Gallagher and Foster. On such occasions Ireland's usual post was immediately to the President's right, where he could observe the hands of all who approached. But that day–and here is where chance first intruded–John G. Milburn, president of the Pan-American Exposition, asked for that position. This shunted Ireland and Gallagher to the left of Mr. McKinley, where they could only look across him at the advancing line. Foster, the third operative, took his stand directly behind the President. Now came the second intrusion of chance. Ireland's notice was drawn to a swarthy man, with a low forehand and a heavy black mustache, who had three fingers of his right hand bandaged. He eyed him closely as he came up, and, grasping the President's left hand in his left, clung to it instead of passing quickly by. This distracted attention from Czolgosz, who followed next and, as the President bent forward, fired. (Wilkie, American Secret Service Agent, pp. 11-12).

After the shooting of the President, he was rushed by electric ambulance to the Pan-American Exposition hospital.

The Exposition hospital was not equipped to handle gunshot wounds but it did have a dimly lit operating room. Dr. Matthew D. Mann, a professor of Obstetrics and Gynecology, led the team of physicians operating on the President.

A specialist in gunshot wounds named Dr. Roswell Park was operating on a patient in nearby Niagara Falls, but he refused to leave his patient in order to save the life of the President of the United States.

Due to the timely death of the President, Roosevelt the Rebel became President.

Wilkie said that the assassination was blind chance....Nothing happens in the political realm by chance . . . especially assassinations....This was a cold blooded killing by the Secret Service in order to put their man Teddy Roosevelt in the White House.

In 1903, Roosevelt the Rebel caused Panama to secede from Columbia for the purpose of building a canal. The real reason for the Panama Canal was to facilitate the fast movement of BATTLESHIPS between the Atlantic and Pacific Oceans!!

The FBI is a branch of the Secret Service!!

Charles Joseph Bonaparte was a grandson of Jérôme Bonaparte (the youngest brother of the French emperor Napoleon I), and attorney general in the Roosevelt administration from 1906 to 1909.

Bonaparte used a lawyer named Stanley Wellington Finch (1872–1951) to set up the Bureau of Inquisition, and he was the director from 1908 to 1912. Finch borrowed personnel from the Secret Service to be the first agents. Here is a report from an authorized history of the Secret Service:

The President sought a new way to utilize the services of the experienced investigators of the Secret Service to investigate matters that were not related to the Treasury Department. At his instigation 8 Secret Service agentsGeorge M. Kennoch, Irving Sauter, George Kraft, Louis P. Elsmere, Charles Dolan, Frank Wallace, Edward Chaims, and Edward J. Brennanwere officially transferred to the Department of Justice on July 1, 1908, forming the nucleus of an investigating force that, years later, was to become the Federal Bureau of Investigation (FBI). (Bowen & Neal, The United States Secret Service, p. 83).

The 8 spies were the nucleus of the new spying bureau.

William J. Flynn retired from the Secret Service in 1917, and 2 years later he was appointed the 4th director of the Bureau of Inquisition. This was the beginning of the "Soviet" or "Bolshevik" scare:

The great Red scare had begun. Attorney general Palmer hired William Flynn, former Chief of the Secret Service, to head the Bureau of Investigation, with Frank Burke, the Secret Service's former Russian expert, as second-in-command. As he cast around for assistants in his own department, Palmer remembered Edgar Hoover–one of only two wartime staffers who had asked to stay on.
A Secret Service check on Edgar turned up nothing remarkable except that his father was now "very ill" in an asylum, and that Edgar was paying the bills. At twenty-four, Edgar became a Special Assistant to Palmer and head of a new section formed to gather evidence on "revolutionary and ultra-radical groups." (Summers, Official and Confidential, p. 36).

In 1924, J. Edgar Hoover was promoted to head the Bureau of Inquisition.

Everybody is familiar with the 5-decades career of the notorious J. Edgar Hoover. 5 Presidents trembled at the very mention of his name.

Hoover had an extensive file on the personal habits of just about everybody of importance in the nation. In addition, the Internal Revenue Service augmented his files with financial and tax data. His Bureau of Inquisition was the envy of Heinrich Himmlers's SS in Germany.
Harry Houdini spied for both branches of the Secret Service!!

Harry Houdini worked at the U.S. and Russian branches of the British Secret Service. Houdini first received nationwide publicity for his "great escapes" in Chicago. Illinois.

Lieutenant Andrew Rohan was a fixture in the Chicago Police Department and he worked closely with Chicago Tribune reporter John E. Wilkie.

Andrew Rohan was a lieutenant in the "crime fighting" Chicago police force.

John E, Wilkie worked with Rohan for almost 20 years before he left to become Chief of the Secret Service.

Wilkie was not in Chicago when Harry Houdini's career was launched.

Houdini boasted that no jail cells or handcuffs could hold him.

The police took him up on the offer and Rohan called the Chicago Tribune.

Escape artist Harry Houdini.

Houdini's escape wizardy amazed the hundreds of people gathered to watch him:

The year 1899 was getting off to a good start for Houdini. He had come to the Midwest on December 5, merely to fulfill some earlier bookings, still pessimistic about his future as a magician. Toledo went poorly, and he was laid off halfway through his engagement. Grand Rapids didn't go much better, but he could always rely on Middleton's in Chicago, where he'd make some extra money by selling his small pitch book between shows. Then he could go back to New York with a little bit of a financial cushion before he had to make the decision that he was dreading.
This time in Chicago something different happened. It's not known who made the initial contact, but for two days before this exhibition at Central Station on the evening of January 4, Houdini conferred with Lieutenant Andrew Rohan a fixture on the Chicago police force since "Twenty-second Street was a swamp," the papers wrote. After these meetings, Rohan had arranged for Houdini to give a demonstration of his escape artistry right in the middle of the roll call room, before an audience of more than two hundred people that included a good number of the police brass, all of the city detectives, a "miscellaneous assortment of experts," and, of course, the press. The only person missing that night was one of the deans of the Chicago press corps, a friend of Rohan's, who had coauthored a massive history of the Chicago police in 1887. No, John E. Wilkie couldn't be present that night in Chicago. He was busy in Washington, D.C., serving as the new chief of the U.S. Secret Service. (Kalush & Sloman, The Secret Life of Harry Houdini, p.67).

From that initial publicity, Houdini went on to become an international star. Very few suspected him of being a British spy. In May 1900, Houdini and his wife set sail for England.

Houdini met his boss William Melville in London. Melville is called the first chief of the British Secret Service.

Nothing could be further from the truth. Sir Francis Walsingham was the first British spymaster.

Spying just came out of the closet around 1900financed by the gold from the newly conquered South Africa.

Secret Service Chief John E. Wilkie sailed for England in 1902, and then he went on to Europe, where he worked with fellow spy Houdini:

As a matter of fact, my education in the seamy side of life had begun in a curious way some years before. In the summer of 1902 I sailed for Southampton with my father. Leaving me alone in London, he set out for a destination in Switzerland unknown to me. He went incognito, for he was handling a most delicate affair that involved the integrity of one of the foremost importers in this country. (Wilkie, American Secret Service Agent, p. 27).

By 1900, most respectable people in Britain still regarded spies as despicable. Spying just became overt at that time. During his stay in Britain, Sir Arthur Conan Doyle became fascinated by Houdini's escape antics and they became close friends.

Sherlock Homes creator, Sir Arthur Conan Doyle, became close friends with fellow spy Houdini.

During his first 5-year stay in Europe, Houdini spied on the Germans, and Russians.

Returning from a trip to Europe in 1913, Houdini entertained Confederate Teddy Roosevelt with his magic tricks.

Houdini was an international superstar like Albert Einstein, and he knew most of his fellow spies like Charlie Chaplin, Jack London, Sarah Bernhardt, and Margery the Medium Crandon etc., etc.

Houdini believed that all mediums were fakes, and all supernatural phenomenon had a natural explanation. He did not believe that demons existed, so he set out to expose all the mediums as charlatans. Houdini died and went to Hades on Reformation Day, 1926. He will never, never escape from that place.
