  1. So this was interesting and coincidental. What do you make of this?

    After listening to the Henry W. Vinson interview, I did a little more poking around, having never heard of this guy before. I had already known about the Franklin Scandal and Madam Palfrey and Catherine Austin Fitts accounts of pedophile rings.

    Vinson is not what I would consider a common name, like Miller, Jones or Smith. So I was intrigued when I did an internet search on Henry, and found this man, Fred M Vinson, American politician, born in Louisa, Kentucky in 1890. He served in all 3 branches of government, during the Truman administration.

    According to Wiki (especially note the Rosenberg detail):

    “In his time on the Supreme Court, he wrote 77 opinions for the court and 13 dissents. His most dramatic dissent was when the court voided President Truman’s seizure of the steel industry during a strike in a June 3, 1952 decision, Youngstown Sheet & Tube Co. v. Sawyer. His final public appearance at the court was when he read the decision not to review the conviction and death sentence of Julius and Ethel Rosenberg. After Justice William O. Douglasgranted a stay of execution to the Rosenbergs at the last moment, Chief Justice Vinson sent special flights out to bring vacationing justices back to Washington in order to ensure the execution of the Rosenbergs. During his tenure as Chief Justice, one of his law clerks was future Associate Justice Byron White.”

    Here is that link:

    I then read Henry’s blog and came across this:

    “I’ve personally experienced guilt by association, and I’ve concluded that it’s often an ill-fated formula for speculation. But in the first printing of Katharine the Great, Davis wrote that Bradlee “produced CIA material” when he was a press attaché in Paris. According to Davis, Bradlee churned out CIA propaganda regarding the Rosenbergs’ case as a response to the French newspaper, Le Monde, which ran a story declaring that the U.S. had framed Ethel and Julius Rosenberg, who were the couple accused of imparting A-bomb secrets to the Soviets and sentenced to death. The Le Monde article outraged the CIA chief in Paris, because the agency was having difficulties selling the Cold War to a European public who feared that the McCarthy witch-hunts were ushering in a new wave of fascism.”

    Here is the link (see paragraph 9, April 3rd):

    Might Henry Vinson and Fred Vinson be related as they are both from Kentucky? Only 2 or three generations apart…

  2. I’m so glad you are covering this topic again. I have heard Henry Vinson on other interviews before and something about him just doesn’t sit right with me. I feel like he is not being completely honest about things. I think he knows a lot more than he is willing to say, and I don’t blame him for that. Nick Bryant is somebody I highly respect and I don’t think he would collaborate with somebody who is intentionally being deceitful. And I still can’t put my finger on it, but I just feel there is so much more to this story that Henry knows but isn’t speaking about for one reason or another. But I haven’t read his book so I will have to read it before I come to any personal conclusions.

    1. I agree – for me it’s that he in some ways seems to claim a moral high ground for not having supplied children to his clients. But, here is someone who listened to these bastards gleefully describe the torture and murder of children… and did NOTHING about it? Didn’t try to report it to anyone? He seems to have just shook his head and said “I can’t believe this.” And went on with his business. That’s pretty hard to stomach. If he hadn’t been arrested, he never would have outed any of these people.

  3. It was interesting how questions were answered directly and very straight forward. Perhaps it was because the subject matter followed the book closely and there was no reason to go off the trail and speculate like other shows, or possibly after being prosecuted so badly you have to be careful what you say.

    I am a new plus subscriber, and I love THC. Carl you are a great interviewer and your audio is superb!

  4. excellent interview. You allow people to speak.
    To understand the antithesis this pleasurable experience…just listen to 5 minutes of
    Clyde Lewis.


  5. Greg! Dude! I just heard the most interesting guest on canary cry radio. You should look into it and see if you would want him as a guest. Planet X, fake moon landing etc…His name is Bart Sibrel he authored “something weird happened while on the way to the moon”. I was completely enthralled with the content of his speech and so were the hosts. It would be awesome if you could get this guy on. But just a suggestion :))) keep up the GREAT work man :))
