MK Beatles

I have become increasingly convinced that the Beatles were involved, directly or indirectly, in a British government sponsored experiment in mind-control and I am now in a position to detail some of these attempts.

We have long been aware of the CIA’s MKULTRA experiments and, despite claiming to have destroyed all documentary evidence, occasionally new documents do come to light.

The British, however, have been far less reluctant to admit anything and so one has to try and piece things together as best one can.

More recently I have begun to believe that some British scandals of the ‘50’s and ‘60’s may actually be part of a far larger conspiracy that encapsulates some of the major events of the twentieth century including mind-control, the assassination of JFK and the Manson family murders.

What I shall attempt to do is to link the events together and, in so doing, provide tantalising hints and clues as to what may be a far larger and far more wide reaching conspiracy. We shall start; however, with an incident that the Beatles chose to reference, fleetingly, in their ‘Free as a bird’ video; the Profumo affair.

Stephen Ward

It would be humbug if I did not confess that I looked forward to the sex orgies. I have been to every type of that party — those specialising in certain perversions and those given in an elaborate setting where all the formalities were observed. Many of the people who attend are rich and famous — many faces that are seen in public life and on television. If their public could only see them like this.’

      — Stephen Ward, osteopath and society artist, 1963.

There is a book entitled ‘Doctors Who Committed Suicide’ in which it discusses, in no huge detail, the careers of Dr Richard Asher and Dr Stephen Ward. Interestingly, they both had fathers who were men of the cloth and both, as the book title suggests, would exit this Earthly realm at their own hands. Allegedly.

Regular readers of my blogs will know that Dr Richard Asher was the father of Jane, who famously spent most of the 1960’s dating Beatle Paul McCartney, and Mensa member and Indica Gallery founder Peter Asher. You may, however, be less familiar with Dr Stephen Ward. Ward was an osteopath who came to world-wide infamy in 1963 via the Profumo Affair honey-trap that sunk the British government of the day but that successfully hid so much more of the Establishment’s dirty laundry.

In ‘Doctors Who Committed Suicide’ it rather harshly seems to claim that Dr Asher’s medical knowledge came primarily from a copy of the ‘Oxford English Dictionary’ that he received as a wedding present from his newly acquired father-in-law. 

Ward’s training, meanwhile, derived from attending the Kirksville College of Osteopathy and Surgery in Missouri. This, it has been claimed led to him “delivering babies at remote farms, setting bones broken during tornadoes and giving typhoid shots after floods” but was insufficient, apparently, for him to qualify for the British Royal Army Medical Corps.

Ward, it further claims, was well known for his ability to attract a coterie of poor, vulnerable, young women. To demonstrate this I shall quote the following passage which is taken from ‘Doctors Who Committed Suicide’; In her autobiography ‘Dors by Diana’, the actress mentioned the filming of the 1951 comedy Lady Godiva Rides Again. In which she starred. During filming in Folkestone in Kent Miss Dors met Jane Hart, a young starlet who had a small part in the film. Dors wrote that Janes Hart’s boyfriend then was Stephen Ward....Ruth Ellis, the last woman to be hanged in the UK (in 1955), had a walk on part in the same film. It is claimed that Ruth Ellis was being run by Stephen Ward, a decade before his name became public in the Profumo Affair.

Lady Godiva Rides Again
Ruth Ellis was convicted of cold-bloodedly gunning down her on-off motor-racing boyfriend, David Blakely, in 1955 and was, as the piece above says, the last woman to be hanged in the UK. Much rumour and conspiracy have surrounded the case ever since but the mere fact that Ellis was rumoured to have been  ‘run by Stephen Ward’ and then happened to have been involved in a ‘Manchurian Candidate’ style execution murder does tend to set some alarm bells ringing. Add to that Ellis’s partner Desmond Cussen – whose involvement has always been suspected but never properly established – had connections to Ward also and things really hot up.

Ruth Ellis’s best friend was a girl called Vickie Martin who apparently was discovered by Stephen Ward sheltering from the rain in a door way on Oxford Street. Ward then transformed Martin, in true My Fair Lady style, from cockney sparrow into the latest society darling and she was all ready to marry the Maharajah of Cooch-Behar when she was tragically killed in a car accident. A report at the time said; The wrecked cars were found by Sir David Salt, of Cookham Berkshire. “The girl was dead on the road.” he said, “and I have since wondered how she came to be on the road, because the door of the car was shut.” 

Which is all rather intriguing!

Both Ellis and Martin worked at Murray’s Cabaret Club – as did Christine Keeler and Mandy Rice-Davies – which was a regular haunt of Ward’s as we shall see.

Vickie Martin’s half-sister was a woman called Vivienne Warren who was the second wife of the Sixties photographer George Harrison-Marks who, apparently, developed the photographic material of the rich and famous that Ward produced and serves to demonstrate the nature of the tightknit little world that all these people inhabited.

Indeed, it would appear that Roger Hollis, who would later be the Head of MI5, recruited a man called Stephen Ward then 37, in around 1949.

When the Beatles released ‘Free as a Bird’ in 1995 the accompanying video featured a montage of scenes and clues to titles or phrases from Beatles songs seen from the viewpoint of an unseen bird. Whilst this birds-eye view attempts to be contemporaneous to the ‘60’s it doesn’t reference any other stand out moments of the decade apart from a fleeting appearance from two girls who can only be meant to portray two of the main Profumo protagonists Christine Keeler and Mandy Rice-Davies. 

Keeler and Rice-Davies in the Free as a Bird video
 Keeler and Rice-Davies in 'real life'
Both characters led interesting lives in the early 1960’s, particularly Keeler, who, having built up an impressive collection of political and Establishment lovers whilst under the spell of Ward, would go on to bed a Beatle (Ringo, just a week before he married Maureen which is presumably why we see Ringo in the video emerging surreptitiously from the Penny Lane bakery – insert your own joke) and party with Polanski, where naturally, the guests drinks were spiked with LSD.

Interestingly, the still from ‘Free as a Bird’ above, showing the two Profumo girls, also shows the word Help – a reference to the film possibly, but this also has a double reference that I shall mention later. Notice also the figure above portraying the V –Typhon, John Lennon Help! LP cover pose.

The ‘Free as a Bird’ video seems to be somewhat of a minefield for clues and we shall explore a few here.

Curiously, the Wikipedia entry for ‘Free as a Bird’ tells a tale in which Ringo Starr insists upon an elephant being inserted into a ballroom procession scene post filming. Not sure why Ringo would insist upon there being an elephant in the room but, perhaps, it is indicative of all not being quite as it seems?

Elephant in the room!

This is, most likely, a reference to the song ‘Bungalow Bill’ which, according to the Beatles Bible website, refers to the ‘William Shepherd’ character who supposedly replaced Paul McCartney after his death.Tellingly there is a William Shepherd involved in the Profumo Affair, this one being a Conservative MP and MI5 informant who Ward met in order to try and broker a meeting between Shepherd and the Russian attaché Eugene Ivanov. Shepherd also claims that he informed the then Prime Minister, Harold MacMillan, of the affair six months prior to it blowing up publicly. Shepherd was also a member of Murray’s Cabaret Club where both Keeler and Rice-Davies, and perhaps others, worked.

Since Stephen Ward’s ‘suicide’ and conviction, in absentia, for living off the immoral earnings of Christine Keeler and Mandy Rice-Davies he has been popularly portrayed as a spy and a traitor, a la Aleister Crowley, as a supreme manipulator and mind-controller, a la Aleister Crowley, and additionally as an occultist and master magician, a la Aleister Crowley. True or not, he is certainly worthy of some further consideration. Just to further strengthen this assertion information has come to me recently to suggest that suicide is not the only thing that links Dr’s Ward and Asher.

A quick glance at a copy of the A-Z of old London Town will reveal that the pair were practically neighbours. Dr Asher, his music teacher wife Margaret, daughters Jane and Clare and son Peter lived in a house at 57 Wimpole Street and it is here that Paul McCartney came to live once he began dating Jane. 

Ward’s residence was in the next street, 17 Wimpole Mews. As can be seen from the map above, the streets are opposite each other and just precede Harley Street, the world famous home of many established medical practitioners.

17 Wimpole Mews

And from this, albeit tentatively, we can first establish a link between the two good doctors. I should point out, however, that McCartney’s tenure and that of Dr Ward do not overlap, what with McCartney moving in to Wimpole Street in 1964 and Ward having popped his clogs a year earlier in 1963, but, that clearly does not preclude Ward and Asher having known one another.

I have been told, by someone who claims to have been there at the time, that when Brian Epstein was first in London, trying to hawk the band around to interested parties, he was introduced to Stephen Ward.

Now, on the face of it this seems to be a very strange suggestion. Why would the Beatles manager be introduced to, or think it worthwhile to meet, Stephen Ward the osteopath? Well Ward was no ordinary osteopath, having treated Gandhi his list of patients grew to include Winston Churchill, Douglas Fairbanks Jr, Prince Philip, Lord Astor and Russian spy Anthony Blunt, and when this type of clientele wished for something to be manipulated it was rarely their backs! Ward was a society fixer; if you wanted a girl, or indeed a boy, Ward could not only arrange it but, should it be required, sort out a venue, outfits, accessories and take a commemorative photograph as well. Ward was the archetypal wedding planner for the rich and famous only without the wedding. Indeed, MI5 described Ward as being 'the provider of popsies for rich people'.

Lord William (Bill) Astor was also a major player in this saga. Astor befriended Ward after the latter had worked on his Lordships stiff back after a hard day’s hunting. So impressed was Astor that he would invite Ward to stay with him every weekend at Cliveden, the Astor family mansion, before Ward was eventually given a cottage of his own on the estate to reside at. Astor, a member of the famous Astor family from whom current British Prime Minister David Cameron’s wife is related by marriage, was a wartime naval intelligence officer. Furthermore, according to this website; the Astors are almost a caricature of an elite conspiratorial super-clan with their historic links to Freemasonry, the intelligence organisations, Rhodes-Milner Group, Royal Institute of International Affairs & the so-called “Cliveden Set” of opponents of war with Hitler in the run-up to WWII.

Besides having been medically trained in the US Ward had also, in 1929, moved to Hamburg and had been employed as a translator in the German branch of Shell whilst his flat in Wimpole Mews had been set-up & operated by the OSS (forerunner of the CIA) during the war for some nefarious purpose with sophisticated surveillance equipment.

Ward, a rather talented portrait artist apparently who had completed many sketches of the top royals; liked to take photographs at the private soirees he would visit to record for posterity the nocturnal activities of the society darlings and members of the British Establishment who would attend. This was facilitated by the two-way mirror that the OSS had left behind before Ward began working with infra-red photography technology. Apparently, people were well aware they were being photographed but nobody seemed to much mind despite the obvious opportunities for blackmailing that this would present Ward. 

Prince Philip by Stephen Ward

And Ward knew the cream of society. According to Christine Keeler in her book ‘Secrets and Lies’ she says of these Ward organised orgies: ‘Stephen knew all the Masonic handshakes and he said that at some of the parties the girls would just wear Masonic aprons. They would be flicked up and down like a sporran,’and of the party venue itself, Cliveden in Buckinghamshire, Keeler reports finding in the wood 'a witch circle, the real thing, about ten feet in diameter.'

Doors of the mind by Michael Bentine

So, we are back, as we are with alarming regularity to the wonderfully murky world of secret societies and their goings on and we shall indeed return here, yet again, in due course. However first we should investigate some of Dr Stephen’s friends and acquaintances, of whom there were many, and we shall do so by quoting from a Daily Mail article that refers to an aborted attempt by Ward to write his autobiography.

…. He told me he had ditched the idea over drinks one Sunday in the notorious cottage on Lord Astor's Cliveden estate. The cottage was off the long main drive at the end of a lane that dropped towards the Thames. This is the place where Christine and Mandy romped on their busy summer evenings of the early Sixties….

….. Stephen made lunch. Some of his guests were my friend John Kennedy, Tommy Steele's manager, and his current date, Jill Browne, who played nurse Carol Young in the huge TV series Emergency Ward Ten. Diana Dors turned up with a gangster.

By the end of lunch Stephen had killed off his autobiography. I never saw him again and may have lost a fortune.

Now this little snippet is extremely important. Let us ignore the fact, for now, that Sgt. Pepper cover star Diana Dors – and a mystery gangster – are in attendance and focus instead on the less familiar name of John (not JFK – but hold that thought) Kennedy. As the piece says Kennedy, a show business agent, was Tommy Steele’s manager, jointly in this case, with Larry Parnes. Parnes was the Simon Cowell of his day managing acts like Marty Wilde, Billy Fury, Vince Eager, Dickie Pride, Duffy Power, Joe Brown and Georgie Fame. So, if you were an aspiring young manager from Liverpool with a hot new band to sell getting an introduction to Kennedy and Parnes would have been priceless. Stephen Ward could give you that access.

So meeting Ward may have been quite lucrative for Epstein, especially, if you add into the bargain that Ward also knew the Asher’s - Ward was supplying willing patients to Asher for the sexual and psychological experiments he was performing and this has been confirmed to me by my contact.

Margaret Asher, a music teacher, had taught Beatle producer George Martin, so what chance that via Ward the Asher’s recommended the Beatles to George Martin? After all, why else would Parlophone, a comedy record label, suddenly diversify and sign a rock and roll act unless they had the right stuff?

And what do I mean by the right stuff? Well talent, charisma, looks and musicality are givens so what I am getting at is more a sense of amenability and pliability. Someone who can be controlled and manipulated and used as an asset would be just the ticket.

Times they were a changing. By the early Sixties the allure of the Elvis clones that populated the Parnes stable was waning, even Cliff Richard’s star was in descent, and the kids wanted to hear something different and so it was time for a changing of the guard. Cue the arrival of the DJ, the star-maker supreme from whose seal of approval careers depended and from whose turntables the new sounds of ‘swinging’ Britain could be heard.

And so, from outside of British waters on Radio Caroline, the discs of these new pretenders were spun and the egos of these new king-makers were stroked. And from this strange brew strode the likes of Jimmy Savile and Alan ‘Fluff’ Freeman. And with the mentioning of these names it is but a short Google search back to some of the recurring characters in this conspiracy; men such as Joe Meek, the Kray twins and Lord Boothby.

Lord Boothby who in 1963 was sleeping with not only Dorothy MacMillan – whose husband Harold’s government was to fall due to the Profumo scandal – but boys supplied by Ronnie Kray as well as quite possibly Kray himself. According to this website; "Apparently Kray had access to many London care homes and would have boys delivered to parties at DJ Alan ” fluff” Freeman’s large flat over a music shop in East London. There they would meet with show biz types and DJs including Jimmy Saville, Joe Meeks and on occasion Beatles manager Brian Epstein."

Now, whilst the above is quite clearly hearsay, it does serve to provide an insight into the lifestyles of certain celebrities and, given what we now know about Savile, could well be true.

As an example of the control, power and influence these people held at that time Boothby successfully sued the Sunday Mirror for publishing this picture of him and Ronnie Kray.

Boothby and Kray
Boothby was on holiday in July 1964, when the Sunday Mirror bombshell exploded, with Colin Coote - who was then the editor of the Daily Telegraph as well as an MI6 collaborator and a patient of Stephen Ward’s - who was a very close friend of Roger Hollis then boss of MI5 and the man who allegedly recruited Ward.

And so we are back to the spectre of organised child-sex rings that follow these people around and the extent to which the Establishment would go to protect some and the lengths to which it would stoop when it was deemed your face no longer fitted. Dr Stephen Ward fell into both these categories. Feted for so long before succumbing to the demise that he would share with both Richard Asher and Brian Epstein; suicide. As with Epstein, death by sleeping pill: Supposedly.

What is immediately obvious when researching any of these shady subjects is that there appears to be a degree of mind-control inherant in manipulating not just the adult women involved but certainly the innocent, but ultimately, vulnerable children. Stephen Ward had this ability and bore all the characteristics of a Monarch mind-controller, but what of the Ashers?

Margaret Asher was a professor of oboe at the Guildhall School of Music and Drama from where she taught George Martin. Indeed here is a quote from Sir George himself…Margaret was a marvellous musician, an inspiring teacher and a lovely person. I was very fond of her. The quote is taken from a charity donation site set up by Jane Asher – using her married name Scarfe – in memory of her mother. On the same site is a comment by someone called Paul…Margaret was always such a good friend to me and I will never forget her lovely wit and gentle good humour. McCartney himself perhaps?

Paul McCartney and Margaret Asher

The image used on this page to represent Margaret is not a photo of her, or of her family, but is an oboe. I would urge you to take a look as it looks very similar to me to the instrument McCartney holds on the cover of Sgt. Pepper. I wonder if McCartney’s use of this instrument (a cor anglais rather than an oboe, I know) was a coded message, or, is it a clue that there is a code within the music?

After all, did not Sir George Martin and his son Giles claim that a ‘code’ was hidden inside the Beatles album Love? Iamaphoney certainly referenced that when claimed to have cracked that code when he mirrored the word ‘LOVE’ from the album front cover and produced the word ‘CODE’; just like the mirrored message contained inside the drum skin on the cover of Sgt. Pepper. Could this be a clue urging us to take another look at Sgt. Pepper?

As I have previously examined in ‘The Sgt. Pepper Code’ the Sgt. Pepper LP is loaded with coded references and clues. But what if the code refers to DNA or blood-lines? Jane Asher, like the Duchess of York and Camilla Parker-Bowles, is of the same lineage as England's King Richard III. This lineage she inherits from her mother Margaret and it instils in her a Plantagenet bloodline. This is significant because the Plantagenet’s claim ancestry, via Eleanor of Aquitaine, from the Merovingian dynasty; the once and future kings, who, legend has it are the descendants of Jesus and who continue his bloodline. Indeed, the Plantagenet dynasty sprang from a union between the aforementioned Eleanor and Henry (later King Henry I of England) from the House of Anjou.

Legend clung to the House of Anjou, one such ran that they were descended from no less a person than Satan himself. It was told that Melusine, the daughter of Satan, was the demon ancestress of the Angevins. Her husband the Count of Anjou was perplexed when Melusine always left church prior to hearing of the mass. After pondering the matter he had her forcibly restrained by his knights while the service took place. Melusine reportedly tore herself from their grasp and flew, birdlike, through the roof, taking two of the couple's children with her and was never seen again.

So, it would appear that, the Asher’s are descendants of a metaphorical union between the son of God and the daughter of Satan!

The ‘Aquarian Conspiracy’ first proposed by John Coleman suggested that the music of the Beatles was actually written by Theodor Adorno as part of a Tavistock / Stanford Research Institute experiment into mass mind-control. I have previously presented – tentative - links between RichardAsher and Tavistock, via his colleague Emmanuel Miller (father of Jonathan Miller who was taught by Richard Asher) and suggested that Asher may have been using some sort of sleep-therapy to implant the tune of ‘Yesterday’ into McCartney’s mind. McCartney famously claims that the tune came to him in a dream, fully formed, and that he just wrote it down when he awoke.

An ode to Richard Asher and his pupils

Well, what was Margaret Asher’s involvement? According to my source both the Asher’s were psychic and telepathic and distrusted McCartney and his relationship with their daughter. Never the less that relationship persisted for years and McCartney’s business relationship with Jane’s brother Peter persists to this day.

So could McCartney have been controlled? Stephen Ward seems to have been a Monarch mind-controller and it would appear that could also apply to the Asher’s.

To illustrate this I will quote directly from my source…

Asher, Miller, (William)Sargant, all 3 were top psychiatrists, I worked with them all. I began helping med-professors train nurses/doctors at 12 years old, there were many kids, not just me, but I only met 2 others. They decided I was 'suitable and flexible' and asked me to help with research, some illegal stuff but they needed to explore even these areas.
Basically they were into learning how the brain worked, but they were into other things too. Most of the time I didn't know what they were getting up to, it was all mixed up and above my head, but they fed me well!
They got into drugs as they knew it was becoming a problem, the police wanted to train cops to deal with it, how to work out what drugs they were on etc. They supplied the drugs and were observing the tests most of the time.
Sargant was different from the others, he was 'an outsider', the others didn't let him in on all they were up too, but they needed his input at times.
They never spoke of it to me but all did work for the government at times. There was a sanatorium in Chislehurst that Ward moonlighted at, it transpired, they were into weird stuff inbetween making people madder than they already were. I know he was involved in 'programming' when he worked there during the war, he told me.
But I know little about that sort of stuff otherwise.
What I do know is it's not necessary to hurt or drug people to brainwash them. Sargant had to, as he wasn't blessed with the psychic-abilities Ward, Asher, Miller possessed. All were able to read minds, telepathy, deep hypnosis. Not kidding, mate! For they were using this on me to get deep into my mind to understand how it all worked. Strangely, they all could do it but nobody knew how it worked, it was passed down by word of mouth over the centuries to those who exhibited a talent for it. Sargant wasn't so blessed; he could do hypnosis, but only level 1, the one we all know about.
And later in the same communiqué my source said this….

I have met people like you on the www, Redwel, has been suggested Richard and Margaret Asher distrusted Paul from the start, tried to stop Jane taking up with him. I would agree with this, both were psychic, telepathic, both would have seen into Paul's head and knew he was bad news. Paul only ever thought of Paul, period.
So, if the above is correct, which obviously I can’t prove but I have no reason to disbelieve, then McCartney was in the hands of Monarch mind-controllers. Certainly the work of William Sargent echoed that of Dr Ewan Cameron’s deep sleep exploits in Canada of whom Senor Wikipedia says this (emphasis added by author)…Cameron believed that mental illness was literally contagious - that if one came into contact with someone suffering from mental illness, one would begin to produce the symptoms of a mental disease. For example, something like rock music could be created by mentally ill people and would produce mentally ill people through infection, which in turn would be transmitted to the genes. Thus, this group would have to be studied and controlled as a contagious social disease. Police, hospitals, government, and schools would need to use the correct psychiatric authority to stop mental contagions from spreading. Cameron also hoped to generate families capable of using authority and techniques to take measures against mental illness, which would later be apparent in Cameron's MKULTRA and MKDELTA experiments.

Not coincidentally both Sargent and Cameron received grants to fund their training from the Rockefeller Foundation, the same organisation that funded the Tavistock Institute.

I would assume that if both Mr and Mrs Asher possessed the same psychic ability as Stephen Ward then at least one of either Peter or Jane Asher would have inherited it too. Is it possible that the Asher’s work was an extension of Dr Ewan Cameron’s only with the purpose of embedding messages, or triggers, into Beatles music?

Therefore the ‘Aquarian Conspiracy’ theory proposed by Coleman may have an element of truth about it after all only with the Adorno role being fulfilled by the Asher’s and possibly George Martin too. And how does this impact on Charlie Manson’s claim that Beatles White Album contained trigger messages just for him?

Helter Skelter from Free as a Bird - Flying a flag for Manson?

As an interesting aside, Cliveden, Lord Astor’s residence and the venue for Stephen Ward’s wild ‘Masonic’ themed sex parties, the venue where Christine Keeler first met John Profumo, the venue where Diana Dors and a gangster – a Kray? – lunched with Ward, the venue containing the ‘witch’s circle’ and, incidentally, where the Beatles filmed scenes for Help! – possibly explaining the Help! Profumo reference in the ‘Free as a Bird’ still earlier in this piece - was sold in the late Sixties to Stanford University, home of MKULTRA and Monarch mind-control programmes!

I mentioned earlier that Diana Dors had been a lunch guest of Ward’s at Cliveden and this is significant as Dors and her then husband, Denis Hamilton, were also known to hold some pretty wild orgies of their own. Could Dors be the …pornographic priestess, boy you been a naughty girl, you let your knickers down… from ‘I am the Walrus’?

Diana Dors and her husband would often arrange for their friend Hod Dibben to supply girls for the parties that they would hold at their house in Maidenhead. These proceedings would then be filmed, via a two-way mirror installed in the ceiling in a similar manner to the OSS installed system at Ward’s house. These ‘home-movies’ would then be sold by Hamilton to his cronies on the circuit.

This sordid activity appears also to have been carried out at Sharon Tate’s and Roman Polanski’s house with their films starring some of the biggest names in Hollywood according to Dennis Hopper – but we are getting ahead of ourselves.

Two regular attendees at the Dors/Hamilton parties were Stephen Ward and Peter Rachman. Rachman was infamous in London in the Fifties and Sixties as being a slum landlord who cashed in the prevailingly racist attitudes of other landlords who were reluctant to lease properties to black tenants. Rachman had a long term relationship with Mandy Rice-Davies, the other prominent female character in the Profumo affair, right up until his death in 1962. Interestingly, my source claims that Rachman did not actually die at this time, but that his ‘double’ did. The real Rachman actually living on until the mid ‘80’s sharing his life with Mandy Rice-Davies in Isreal.

Rachman would also purchase the infamous two way mirror from Hamilton and Dors, presumably to continue the illicit film-making programme.

The aforementioned Hod Dibben is also an interesting character in this extremely perplexing saga, as was his wife, Mariella Novotny. To illustrate I shall quote from the following website

It was Lord Denning who called Mariella Novotny’s December 1961 orgy ‘the Man in the Mask Party’. She preferred to call it the Feast of the Peacocks. It took place in her mansion flat at 13 Hyde Park Square. Mandy Rice-Davies and Christine Keeler arrived fashionably late. They were greeted at the door by their mentor, Stephen Ward. He was dressed in a sock. Everyone else was naked. Apart from Mariella, who was wearing a black corset and a whip. She was in bed with six men. She joked that she was the Government’s Chief Whip.

Mariella made her London debut in 1957 as a topless dancer in Soho. She was 16. It was her mother’s idea. One year later she married Horace ‘Hod’ Dibben, a sado-masochistic associate of Stephen Ward. David Bailey took the wedding photos.

Hod dealt in antiques and official secrets. He ran night-clubs in Shepherd Market and Mayfair – actually Esmeralda’s Barn which he would later sell to the Kray Twins - where he played host to Anthony Armstrong-Jones(who would later marry Princess Margaret, sister of Queen Elizabeth II), the Duke of Kent, Lord Astor and the Kray twins. He and Mariella held dinner parties for Earl Spencer(Princess Diana’s father). Hod was fifty-six. Mariella was eighteen. At one of Hod’s parties, Mariella met a TV producer/procurer who set her to work in New York. Hod gave his blessing and off she went. In May 1961 she escaped from a hotel in New York where she had been restricted by a probation order as a minor on vice charges. She arrived back in England on the Queen Mary, and sold her story to the News of the World. It was a good one. She told the senior crime reporter that she was the niece of the former Czech president, Antonin Novotny. And that, as a child, she had spent four years in a Soviet Stateless Persons Camp. She even had the accent to back it up.

One of the facts that Denning did not reveal in his report was the international impact of the Profumo scandal. It was not Christine or Mandy or even Stephen Ward who excited the interest of the FBI. It was Mariella. Whilst in New York she had taken part in a game with President-Elect John F. Kennedy. For the game, she had worn a nurse’s uniform. So had her Chinese colleague, the notorious ‘international call-girl’ Suzy Chang. The women were hospital staff, and JFK was their patient.

It was bad enough that one of the nurses was Chinese, but the other was a runaway Communist from Czechoslovakia. Robert MacNamara, the US Defence Secretary, told a senior FBI agent that he ‘felt like he was sitting on a bomb’ as headline after headline in British newspapers opened the lid on the Profumo affair. Even Robert Kennedy, it emerged, was caught up in this sex and spy ring. Lord Denning decided not to name the ‘Czech madam’ as one of his principal witnesses.

The other story Mariella told was that she was born Stella Marie Capes, the daughter of a shorthand typist from Sheffield. She could have been the result of her mother’s brief affair with a Czech or Polish pilot. It was also alleged that her MI5 codename was ‘Henry’, and she swore that she was part of an FBI smear campaign that had JFK in its sights. Her escape from New York had been arranged by secret agents in return for her address book.

Pretty nurse in a Presidential 'role' play?

At this point we really start to move away from the Beatles and into a whole new world of conspiracy. In the Beatles official ‘Free as a Bird’ video we see a shot of ‘the pretty nurse  selling poppies from a tray’ from ‘Penny Lane'. Could this actually be a reference to Novotny and Chang and a pretty nurse in a Presidential role play?

It has been suggested elsewhere on the internet that this individual from the ‘Free as a Bird’ video could be a reference to Mary Pinchot Meyer who reportedly had an affair with JFK before being silenced by an assassin’s bullet.

The above GIF image from this Iamaphoney video; links the Mary Pinchot Meyer candidate from the ‘Free as a Bird’ video with the infamous ‘False rumour’ article from the February 1967 Beatles Monthly Magazine. The ‘False rumour’ piece is famously the first known reference to a Paul McCartney car crash and, as it refers to an incident that did not happen, is a clear example of creating a fake media story. The significance of this could be that Mary Pinchot Meyer’s husband, Cord Meyer, initiated the CIA programme, Operation Mockingbird – an operation designed to manipulate the media by releasing false rumours to unwitting journalists – in 1951. Is this why the ‘Free as a (mocking)Bird’ Mary Pinchot Meyer lookalike is seen outside No. 51 Penny Lane?

Also telling is that the ‘Free as a Bird’ video features car crash footage – referencing ‘A Day in the Life’ which talks about the Tara Browne fatal car crash – and where we see John Lennon and a Linda McCartney lookalike viewing the aftermath of a car crash.

A Day in the Life of Lennon and Linda?

We will return to Mary Pinchot Meyer shortly, but first let us consider JFK.

Stephen Ward had said to both Christine Keeler and the Russian attaché Eugene Ivanov that “a man like John Kennedy will not be allowed to stay in such an important position of power in the world, I assure you of that.” A chilling prophecy certainly, but, was it an idle statement that only becomes relevant with the benefit of hindsight or could Ward have had an inside track?

At the time of the Profumo affair the US Ambassador to England was a former OSS guy called David Bruce and he was becoming increasingly uneasy about allegations he was hearing in regards to Profumo and decided he needed to get to the bottom of it.

To this end Bruce sent his nephew William (Billy) Mellon Hitchcock and Thomas J Corbally to a meeting with Ward to get to the heart of the matter. Apparently Corbally and Hitchcock left this meeting convinced that the allegations surrounding Profumo were true. Presumably Bruce then told the MI5 man William Shepherd who then told the Prime Minister Harold MacMillan.

How did Corbally know Ward? Well Corbally first met Ward at a party where Ward noticed Corbally was struggling with a knee complaint. One touch from the healing hands of Ward was all it took to cure Corbally’s ailment and the pair became lifelong friends. According to the book ‘The Hustlers’ by Douglas Thompson Corbally had as impeccable Mafia connections as he did CIA ones (Presidential assassination anyone?) and was a regular at the Chemin de Fer gambling nights organised by John Aspinall that would prove to be the downfall of Brian Epstein. Additionally a contemporaneous FBI report, declassified in 1987, characterized Mr Corbally as an American businessman "who reportedly ran sex orgies in his London flat" something which would clearly appeal to Stephen Ward!

Apparently Corbally shared this flat with Ambassador Bruce’s nephew, William ‘Billy’ Hitchcock, despite Corbally being over 50 at the time and Hitchcock being only in his twenties. William hailed from the extremely wealthy Hitchcock dynasty: his grandfather having founded Gulf Oil and his Uncle Andrew Mellon who had acquired a wealth valued in billions of dollars by the 1920’s. The flat that Corbally and Hitchcock shared was in Duke Street in Mayfair where Robert Fraser had his art gallery. Stephen Ward, Keller and Rice-Davies all visited this flat, presumably to attend one of Corbally’s parties? In the book ‘1967’ author David Stuart Ryan when talking about the infamous Redlands bust says ‘Robert Fraser who ran an art gallery and had a certain notoriety from having been connected with Stephen Ward, an osteopath implicated in the Profumo trial who had committed suicide when convicted.’ Sadly, the author does not specify what that connection may be?

At the point in time at which Mandy Rice-Davies’ then partner Peter Rachman dies, Mandy is in Paris with a relative of William Mellon Hitchcock’s – Senta Hitchcock.

William Hitchcock was also heavily involved in the CIA fronted Castle Bank and Trust which was based in the Bahamas and which was involved in tax evasion, as well as covertly funnelling funds for the Central Intelligence Agency.

Is it significant that when the Beatles were filming Help! Brian Epstein felt it was "really, really, really important to go to the Bahamas", and hence a scene was written to be shot on location there? Likewise, there is a five minute segment, which would ultimately land up on the cutting room floor, that was set at the Sam Ahab (Bahamas spelled backwards) Drama School.

William Hitchcock is also extremely intriguing because as soon after he returned to the US from England it was he who would help to fund the legendary LSD guru Timothy Leary and even gift him one of the family properties as a centre for psychedelic experiments. This is exciting because in 1962 Mary Pinchot Meyer made contact with Leary who, reportedly, supplied LSD to Mary who used it with John F Kennedy. Leary also claimed that Mary helped influence Kennedy's views on nuclear disarmament and rapprochement with Cuba. It was later discovered that the FBI was keeping a file on Mary.

According to his biography, Flashbacks (1983) Timothy Leary claims that Mary phoned him the day after Kennedy was assassinated: "They couldn't control him anymore. He was changing too fast. He was learning too much... They'll cover everything up. I gotta come see you. I'm scared. I'm afraid."

On 12th October, 1964, Mary Pinchot Meyer was shot dead. Timothy Leary would end up sharing a prison cell with Charles Manson.

In his book ‘Ultimate Evil’ author Maury Terry alleges that Manson, as well as David 'Son of Sam' Berkowitz was a member of a nationwide cult connected to drug and (child) sex trafficking, snuff films, and contract killings. Sound familiar?

Extract from 'Ultimate Evil'

This cult was said to have begun as an offshoot of the Process Church of the Final Judgement which began life in London as an offshoot of Scientology and was founded by husband and wife team Robert and Mary Anne DeGrimston. Mary Anne DeGrimston began life as Mary Anne MacLean, in Glasgow, Scotland, on November 20, 1931.  She reportedly endured a frustrating childhood, including serving time at a reform school.  She later moved to the United States, where she reputedly got engaged to former boxing champion Sugar Ray Robinson (Robinson had intended to make a film of the Profumo affair with Christine Keeler in the starring role opposite old Sugar Ray himself). When this relationship ended she returned to the UK where she began working as a dance-hall hostess, purportedly, at Murray’s Cabaret Club alongside Christine Keeler and Mary Rice-Davies. It has been suggested that Mary Anne may also have been recruited by Stephen Ward as one of his ‘girls’ but this cannot be verified.

Sammy Davis Jr. has said of the victims who were killed at Sharon Tate's Cielo Drive Residence: 'Everyone there had at one time or another been into Satanism.' Some newspapers reports at the time of the slayings were rife with reports that the Polanski’s were Satanists who hosted drug and sex orgies.

I will now quote from the book ‘Shadow over Santa Susana’ by Adam Gorightly. "During follow-up investigations at the Polanski residence, police discovered several films and videotapes in the main bedroom closet. Some of these films, it has been rumoured, involved an elite underground Hollywood group who swapped smut of each other. One item discovered was a videotape of Sharon and Roman making love, although police never considered it pertinent to the case. During the Tate/La Bianca trial, defence attorneys were approached by the representative of a 'rising movie actress' who had apparently left a roll of undeveloped film of herself in compromising positions at the Polanski residence, and was inquiring if Manson Family members had the film in their possession. Many years after the Tate/La Bianca murders, Manson told an interviewer, 'Don't you think those people deserved to die?...They were involved in kiddie porn.' Like Manson's Hollywood Star revelations, one must wonder about these allegations of Polanski making money from kiddie porn, as Charlie's claims pre-date Polanski's late 1977 rape case of an under-aged girl.

    "Manson later told a Hollywood tabloid that 'Dennis Wilson gave me a $5,000 videotape, TV thing for tapes that fit only to an elite bunch (porno ring) that was worldwide.' At one point, two reporters approached the Manson defence team informing them that certain individuals in Hollywood were worried that the case might cause a film industry scandal. The reporters said that lots of porno -many of the hand-held, home-made variety -had been discovered during the Tate murder investigation, and that many influential people had put in pleas to the district attorney to lower the charge against Manson to manslaughter, as a way to keep him quiet.

    "In Doris Day: Her Own Story, Terry Melcher was quoted that the 'murders had something to do with the weird film Polanski had made, and the equally weird people who were hanging around the house. I knew they had been making a lot of homemade sadomasochistic-porno movies there with quite a few recognizable Hollywood faces in them. The reason I knew was that I had gone out with a girl named Michelle Phillips, one of the Mamas and Papas, whose ex-husband, john Phillips, was the leader of the group. Michelle told me she and John had dinner one night, to discuss maybe getting back together, and afterwards he had taken her up to visit the Polanski’s in my old house. Michelle said that when they arrived there, everyone in the house was busy filming an orgy and that Sharon Tate was part of it. That was just one of the stories I had heard about what went on in my former house.' "

So, what we seem to have is evidence of an international sex and home-made porn film ring, all with ties back to a Monarch mind-controller who may have been able to infiltrate, and manipulate, the Beatles. I must confess I always considered the links between Manson and the Beatles fanciful, based largely on the unsubstantiated rumours that the band may have stayed at Cielo Drive prior to the murders. Maybe there is more of a tie than I initially thought.

So, let us summarise. If we follow through from Stephen Ward we can see that he was an MI5 operative who, if not an actual Monarch mind-controller, was extremely gifted at persuading women to work on his behalf. In addition he was connected to an international sex ring that controlled enough dynamite blackmail material to not only bring down a government but that could have shattered Hollywood and buried the British aristocracy permanently.

Ward was connected to Dr Richard Asher who, and I have first-hand testimony on this, was involved in conducting experiments on using LSD for sexual and mental conditioning on patients being supplied to him by Ward. My source also revealed that Ward had met Brian Epstein and assisted in getting the Beatles signed. Furthermore, according to my source, both Richard and Margaret Asher had psychic abilities and distrusted Paul McCartney. My assertion therefore is that they and Peter and Jane Asher were being used to subliminally control Paul McCartney.

As we continue we can see that Ward, and his associates, can be connected through to the JFK assassination, the proliferation of LSD as a global form of mind-control and the international child-sex rings that seem to lie behind Manson and his family and other serial killers and the inter-connected CIA issues concerned with all.

I suspect that this will be just the beginning of my exploration of Dr Stephen Ward!



  1. Really glad I found your article, I recently got sucked into the deeply disturbing rabbit hole that is the Paul Is Dead Conspiracy theory. I also thought there were possibly links between MK Ultra type projects and the Beatles, and having found out who Jane Asher's dad was,and that Paul slept at his house when he had his "Yesterday" Dream became suspicious. Have you read the memoirs of Billy Shears? In that they claim Paul had a lot of dreams predicting his own "death" in the run up to it. (I like you fall more on the side that it was some kind of metaphorical death and rebirth, not an actual death). We now know they had technology even back then that could play recordings through the pillow you were sleeping on, so the Yesterday Dream being an induced mind control experiment seems like a slam dunk doesn't it?
    There have been more links to mind control experiments in the UK established. In the UK it was called "Project mannequin", look up a woman called Cathi Morgan, she has done a lot of research into this area that is on youtube, she has a channel.

  2. Your site is great and lots off excellent info, esp about the int'l sex/porno/orgies, mind control, satanic/witchcraft rings that seemed to exist at the time (and maybe still do). Let me throw another iron on the fire that I just found out about. Did you know that YOKO ONO made a pretty raunchy (I would call it a porno) movie in 1965 called Satan's Bed? You can look it up on IMDB. It apparently features a lot of creepy, gross rape scenes, which was obviously the fetish of whoever made this flick. I was astounded that a woman of Ono's alleged upper class/artistic background would be involved in this...but she was. Other films by the same producer sound even worse, but the very first one listed in 1962 has Francis Ford Coppola! listed as the director. These seem to be rings of people engaged in very bad stuff, sexually, satanically - maybe induced by parts of the hidden govt to do this shit - and then they drug or kill each other to cover it up later when it leaks out - as stuff like this inevitably does. Makes me wonder if Yoko Ono was a mind-controlled honey pot to manipulate John Lennon. Maybe Jane Asher, daughter of one of the world's pre-eminent hypnotists who specialized in sleep-work (and Paul slept at their house) was a similar honey pot for Paul? This rabbit hole has rabbit holes that one falls into endlessly and they still seem to be active - although Satanism now seems to be becoming more public and open.

    1. Do you have to use the sh-word?? How can you talk like that?

    2. Ditto on your observation about Jane A. being a honey pot, though she was probably unaware or under hypnotic influence herself. Probably just wanted to please her father. To this day she is very loyal to him and his memory. As for Beacon's source claiming that Jane's parents could intuit that 'Paul was trouble', well, one has to make a distinction as to which "Paul" is being referred to. I know Beacon is not sold on the 'Paul died and was replaced' thesis, but really, is it any less weirder than the rest of this stuff?? To my understanding, Paul did die and was replaced, and this is the lynch pin to so much about the Beatles story and context. It is bizarre as hell, but again, so is all this stuff. Paul was killed because he was airing the dirty laundry of the cult (the Butcher Cover) and getting obnoxious about Vietnam and JFK's murder. John was doing it too, but unlike Paul, he had fallen for the LSD underground culture. Paul resisted and only had some when Tara Browne spiked his tea. He was surrounded by young enthusiastic cult members like Barry Miles, Jon Dunbar, and Marianne Faithful (father was MI6). Paul's death was a way to get John in line and onboard with the agenda. It's always been curious to me why so many gloss over John's breakdown after '66. He admitted he spent all of that year and most of the following high off his gourd. "Nothing is Real" he wrote. An apt observation when he's looking across the studio at a man who is supposed to be Paul. It was the greatest magick trick of all. A brazen mass exercise in mind controlling the public. Is it a coincidence that Paul died and was "reborn" during the very year that was said to mark the death of God and the ascension of antichrist? Some argue he died "symbolically," but that really doesn't wash when the forensic evidence is considered. There is also the matter of who Paul was as a person. It's very difficult to get a handle on that aspect after 60 years of the replacement's less than stellar qualities being read back into the early Beatles. But it can be done. Forget the biographies. Look at primary sources of which there are tons. The original Paul was a VERY different dude compared to his replacement. I think Jane's parents liked him, despite his status as their live-in guinea pig. Richard certainly got on with Jim McCartney well. It was Bill they despised. Is it just a coincidence that Dr. Asher died a mere month after "Paul" married Linda? He was pissed at the situation and felt that Jane got shafted. He was about to blow the whole thing open.
