When Dr. Lowell P. Wigglesworth was fired for asserting that his doctoral thesis was widely accepted by his credentialing institution, only to be censored and then removed from his pending full professorship he was unable to find supportive A-list academics who would come to his defense.
“I knew my thesis was dead on when that happened,” said Wigglesworth.
Presidential historians Michael Beschloss and Doug Brinkley were nowhere to be found. “Brinkley is probably sitting in on an Engelhardt or Capaldi seminar at this very moment. I had hopes that my thesis would be widely accepted and seen as a breakthrough in original historical research, but I was left out there to dangle alone in the wasteland of unaccepted assertions,” said Wigglesworth noting that Michael Beschloss's wife had worked for the World Bank, Morgan Bank and Carlyle Group.
“Elizabeth Varon wasn’t any more help than Beschloss or Brinkley, but then what should I expect? Beschloss is married to the Carlyle Group and Brinkley is from Rice and Tulane,” said Wigglesworth adding "they would have been about as helpful to me as Graham Spanier was to the boys in the Penn State locker room. Varon was at Virginia and Yale. Carlyle Group and the U.S. military war racket are riveted at the ball-joints and Tulane is knee deep in Exxon's Corexit while Rice was home to chemical engineer and Rice President, Kenneth Pitzer Pitzer threw poor old Oppenheimer under a tank track for refusing to build a really fat ‘Fat Boy’…..the hydrogen bomb,” said Wigglesworth.
"At issue for Wigglesworth is his Ph.D. thesis: The Civil War was fought to fund the Transcontinental Railroad. William Tecumseh Sherman, credited as he was for destroying the South's main supply route from Atlanta to Savannah, was actually destroying the Eastern terminus of a Southern Transcontinental Railroad line that ended in San Diego, California. Surveyed by Jefferson Davis during the 1850’s, the Southern power elites' China Trade ambitions were cut off in the lowland passes by using the high moral ground of Abolitionism, a motive negated by the enslaving power of opium and the public and black markets in addictive products, like Southern tobacco, which each desired to control.
Of supreme importance to Wigglesworth's thesis is his assertion that a January 20, 1861 letter from Jefferson Davis to Franklin Pierce supplies the smoking gun of an alliance between Davis, Pierce and New England opium merchant and China Trader, Caleb Cushing found in the Jefferson Davis Project at Rice University, Houston, Texas.
"Iran-Contra's drugs for weapons scandal proved that for over 150 years the game has not changed. America's wars in Iraq, Afghanistan and Pakistan...prime poppy growing regions... solidifies Wigglesworth's thesis," said Dr. Maximus Pierre Revue' who supports Wigglesworth's thesis with only minor criticism. "It's iron-clad," said Revue', "history is nothing more than the chronicling of people's misguided pursuit of pleasure and avoidance of pain often at other people's expense."
"That’s right,” said Wigglesworth. “Shelby Foote said famously….or infamously..... from the viewpoint of any serious historian..... ‘I studied no original documents in my histories of the Civil War. It has all been covered before.’ Do you know what poppy cock that should be to any serious and honorable historian?” asked Wigglesworth.
Wigglesworth then in rapid fire succession listed the reasons why American myth has been packaged as truth and why Foote wrote so much about the Civil War. "It's all chewing gum for the mind's militaristic impulses. Pumping out a stream of regurgitated Civil War battle scenarios is like replaying the Ali/Frazier fight ad nausea," said Wigglesworth, "a billboard for guns, butter and chaos with the fight promoters still controlling both corners and flapping their towels in the face of their pawns."
"Will you hear Ken Burns in The Roosevelts: An Intimate History explain that Warren Delano made his money not simply in what Burns called 'The China Trade', but in opium, or that James Roosevelt married Delano's daughter, Roosevelt who was Delano's business partner, having made his fortunes in railroads or that Teddy Roosevelt's mother was a Southern plantation owner from Savannah? Oh, I tell you the rail race across America to the Pacific, to the Golden Crescent's flowery mountain high fields and China's trading bazaars was injected into the U.S. blue bloods like butter into a Thanksgiving turkey and Teddy's 'Great White Fleet' was as symbolic of white poppy drool as Moby Dick was of unrestrained pursuit of whatever kills the soul in a witless quest for an anesthetized end, " said Wigglesworth.
“Whoever controls the prevailing myth controls the nation. Varon does nothing to tell us that Richmond’s leading Union spy came from Pennsylvania with a father who was in the hardware business, but with ties to railroads like James Moreau Brown in the South who along with his railroad partners employed Braxton Bragg well out of sight until he died. They certainly didn't want him physically in, say, San Francisco or Sacramento. Merchants depended on the railroad for their goods, but who controlled the products and shipping? Never mind that the average right-of-way yielded the railroad barons from between 16 to 24 sections of land per mile with each section containing 640 acres. Those who had stockpiled and profited from America's arsenal of freedom which was quickly becoming a golden goose gobbling industrial machine," said Wigglesworth.
"Elizabeth Van Lew focused primarily on infiltrating the Southern railroads. Her primary source of information came from her contacts with the railroad companies in Richmond and Mary Bowser worked in the Confederate White House spying on Jefferson Davis, or working as Grant's courier to Thomas and Braxton Bragg, until the time was right for the arrival of Sherman's coup de grace. Who had laid out the Southern Transcontinental Railroad route? Jeff Davis. Jefferson Davis had met with the New England China Trader, Boston’s Caleb Cushing who, as Winsip Custer has nicely covered in his article, Romancing The Stoned, negotiated the U.S./Chinese trade agreement that promised not to do to the Chinese what Britain had done....drop Turkish, Indian, Afghanistani and Pakistani opium on the poor Chinese, a tactic that would be replicated in the U.S. with cocaine instead of opium and with inner city youth as evidenced by the Iran-Contra scandal. Our current wars in Afghanistan and Pakistan as well as our interest in controlling during the Vietnam War China's local poppy growing region, the Golden Triangle, tells you that Cushing's promises were, well, half-hearted or downright deceptive. Jeff Davis, as Cushing's guest, argued for slavery at Boston's historic Feniel Hall shortly before Frederick Douglas arrived to bolster the Abolitionist cause. Cushing had lucrative trade routes long established from his family’s connections to the Russell Trust and other U.S. opium traders across the Pacific. Winsip Custer has built upon my thesis in his article Cain Cushing and Abel Brown. Even after Braxton Bragg fell into disfavor with many Southerners from the enormous build up Braxton had as the rock star of the Mexican-American war with fans singing 'Give Them More Grape Captain Bragg', which he humorously sought to repair after the Civil War by refusing to surrender with Lee at Appomattox. Bragg was always a key figure in the Richmond White House along with his brother, the Confederacy’s Attorney General,” said Wigglesworth. "Van Lew's reward for her spying was to be made a U.S. Postal Inspector for Richmond. "The extensive connection of the U.S. Postal Service to Shanghai's Cornelius Vander Starr and his AIG Insurance and to Pacific Steamship and Mail Company and to the China Traders of New England and to the U.S. Navy and its premier place in U.S. intelligence all underscores what was really going on during the Civil War hidden in plain view under the premise and pretty petticoat of Abolitionism," said Wigglesworth. "This helps us to understand why Lance Armstrong could get by for so long with juicing while on the U.S. Postal Service payroll.

Sherman's closest colleague in stopping the Southern Transcontinental route to San Diego was Grenville M. Dodge who in 1866 became the chief engineer for the Union Pacific. Dodge had also been instrumental in the Union victory at Vicksburg, Mississippi in the heart of the Mississippi Delta just south of Memphis and the western river hub of the Confederate rail lines from Texas to the Atlantic. On the east side of the Mississippi the Confederate rail system stretched to Savannah. Grenville Dodge like Mary Bowser's spy ring in Richmond was in charge of the spy ring in Vicksburg. In 1863 Dodge was in Vicksburg, by 1865 he's leading troops for Sherman at Atlanta and by 1865 Dodge, immediately after Appomattox, is looking for a pass through the Rocky Mountains that will seal the Northern Transcontinental route to San Francisco for Caleb Cushing and friends. In 1999 Thomas Layton wrote about the discovery of the New England China trader's ship The Frolic near Fort Bragg in Mendicino County north of San Francisco (Thomas Layton, The Voyage of the Frolic: New England Merchants and the Opium Trade, Stanford University Press, 1999). Layton discovered that Fred Bailey was working in the Brown Brother's hometown of Baltimore laying opium clipper hulls, perhaps The Frolic's! Cushing in true fight-promoter fashion had hosted Jeff Davis to speak in favor of slavery in Boston just before Fred Bailey, aka Frederick Douglass, spoke against it. Do these honorable historians teach us about this and what was the motive of this big bamboozle beside the opium and war profits...the racket of war that continues to this day?
"I have seen companies that import an Apple IPAD from a Chinese factory that pays its workers a pittance per day to make it, then give one to their associates to track their work and schedule in real time, even charging them a couple of thousand dollars if they lose it. 1984 is a late arriver, but it's here, now. You have often heard the derogatory statement 'It all went South,' meaning that something bad happened. You look at the urban decay, the rust-belts across Cushing's industrialized North and Gary Webb's coverage of the CIA's drug pumping into the inner cities and you can just as easily say 'It all went North!", said Wigglesworth recalling the CIA's Iran-Contra airport in Mena, Arkansas during the Clinton Governorship and the Reagan-Bush Iran-Contra Scandal with the Bush connection to the 1833 Northern "Order".
"Dr. Jeffrey Engel of Texas A&M and SMU could not come to my defense either," said Wigglesworth. "He's an apologist for the Bush legacy who glibly skips over important details of George Herbert Walker Bush's World War II experiences which were laid out in Ivy League Woes: Yale, Yale The Gangs All Here by Bard Willett Williamson. Engel never dared to raise the issue of the Yale power elites' China Trade connections. Why go back to dirt? Because that is where this tricky little embryo germinated. Engel conveniently avoids, as well, what Anthony Sutton says of 'The Order's' connections to a uniquely German dialectic that permeates the secret establishment's ideology never mentioning that Prescott Bush's support of the American 'Business Plot' and German American Bund may have found renewed support in George Herbert Walker Bush's cheers for German reunification in 1987. When coupled with George Walker Bush's linkage to the rise of the German Thule and Runic Neo-Pagan traditions in Texas as evidenced by the charges leveled in the Jimmy Joste murder case and spelled out in Between the Properline and the Dirty Low Down by Peter Pezonus, the Order's rolling agenda is exposed. There is much to be concerned about," said Wigglesworth.
“You are assuming, I take it, that Shelby Foote had such a fascination with Nathan Bedford Forrest because of Forrest's hatred of Braxton Bragg?” Wigglesworth was asked by Dr. Max Pierre Revue' of the Institute for the Review and Defense of the Rejected Doctoral Thesis in Montreal, Canada.
“Exactly. Foote knew that Bragg was a shill for the Northern railroad barons, though Foote could never say that and still be loyal to his mentor, Walker Percy and his family, with Percy's ties to Franklin Pierce…..the Percy and Pierce families bolted together at the breast plate,” said Wigglesworth noting Barbara Pierce Bush's connections to the Walker Percy family.
“When Herman Melville, who wrote a poem about Sherman's march, the Brahman’s beloved novelist who earlier wrote Moby Dick, he was writing about his benefactors’ irrational, impassioned pursuit of the white drool of the opium poppy, not some bounding ball of finned blubber,” said Wigglesworth noting that Melville's concerns were well founded, but too cryptically expressed. Nathan Bedford Forrest figured it out and I believe resigned himself to the reality that he had botched his opportunities, was used and abused, not once, but twice....first in the fictitious war against the real blight of slavery and then in their commandeering of the KKK....not unlike our fictitious wars against terrorism and the toxic soup of mixed ambitions that that cluster-fxxx has brewed up. A man of immense personal empowerment and leadership and who even under slavery was protected by a loyal bevy of black body guards, had he only reread his Bible and asked…..’you mean that this Moses stuff applies to everyone?’ Spartacus resurrected! Shelby Foote knew this about Forrest. If he would have given all Southerners of whatever color and origin eighty acres and two mules and marched North in 1859, or maybe earlier, like just after Jeff Davis returned from laying out the Southern rail route along the Old Santa Fe Trail,” said Wigglesworth, "history would have been as different as that envisioned in Jeff Greenspan's book 43*," said Wigglesworth.
“There’s a second kicker and that is the fact that to celebrate their brazen plan these members of the Order who would dance in bed sheets, cremate care, piss on the red woods and applaud their ballsy cunning...though Nixon called this Order "the most faggety gooddamn thing I have ever seen", gathered religiously just west of Sacramento where Sherman and Bragg…..George F. Bragg…..brought it all to fruition. Just west of Sacramento not far from the Mendocino County Line is San Francisco and just North of San Francisco is the Bohemian Grove and just north of there is Fort Bragg named after….no, not George F. Bragg…..Braxton!….who like John P. O’Neill or Rick Riscorla, the FBI agent tracking Osama Bin Laden and the hero of We Were Soldiers Once and Young, both died in the 911 disaster in a building guarded by Securacom, the security company on whose board was Marvin P. Bush, George W. Bush’s brother and which was the address of Sidley Austin Brown and Wood, the historic law firm of Mrs. Mary Todd Lincoln and former employer of Mrs. Michele Obama,” said Wigglesworth.
Wigglesworth noted that Braxton Bragg, the shill whose connections to the Richmond White House and to its spies, Elizabeth Van Lew and Mary Bowser are anybody's guess, died alone on a Texas street corner far from the fame and wealth he perhaps thought his treachery was securing. His great nephew, C. Wright Mills, a sociologist at Colombia University in New York, grew up on the Texas ranch that lay across the proposed Jefferson Davis railroad route to San Diego. Mills' book, The Power Elite, chronicles the evolution of the U.S. Military Industrial Complex. "Bragg's legacy, whose name means literally "braggard", was sacrificed upon the Orders's altar of cremated care like the 600,000 American men and boys, while the 40 Union Generals who had done Cushings and Sherman’s biding in blue and not gray uniforms....the bidding of Stanford, the Russell’s, Browns and Tafts.... rested peacefully, not on Robert E. Lee's confiscated estate, Arlington National, but beside the progenitor of their New Order…..Alphonso Taft in Cincinnatti, Ohio,” said Wigglesworth who added….”screw Beechloss. Screw Brinkley. Screw Varon. Well, maybe NOT Varon.”
