"Wall Street genius" Mark Gorton publishes summary of "ruthless secret cabal that assassinated JFK and planned 9/11."

The Astounding Conspiracy Theories of Wall Street Genius Mark Gorton
By Hamilton Nolan on April 10th, 2014

Mark Gorton is a prominent financier and a respected entrepreneur. He founded the music sharing site Limewire, and he runs Tower Research, a famed high-frequency trading firm. Gorton also believes that the "ruthless" secret cabal that assassinated JFK and planned 9/11 could be coming to kill his family.

Mark Gorton does not have a reputation as a crackpot. Quite the opposite. He's been favorably profiled in the New York Times for his business acumen and charitable deeds. His experience as the head of Limewire—which disrupted the music industry and then lost a $100 million lawsuit as a result—was closely followed by the press. And when Michael Lewis's blockbuster new book about high frequency trading was published recently, prominent media outlets turned to Gorton to learn what HFT firms are really like. The Huffington Post even dubbed him "the new face of Wall Street." He is a very respected and very wealthy man.

This week, we were forwarded documents that Gorton was sending out to employees at Tower Research. These documents—embedded at the bottom of this post—are essays by Mark Gorton, laying out his theories on the secret high-level murderous criminal "Cabal" that is responsible for, among other things, the JFK and RFK assassinations, the presidential careers of the Bushes, Clinton, and Obama, the Oklahoma City bombing, the 9/11 plot, and the murder of countless witnesses, politicians, and journalists who sought to expose them, including Sen. Paul Wellstone and even Hunter S. Thompson. Everything, according to Gorton, has been an inside job.

It is really something.

The longest and most complete of Gorton's essays is titled "Fifty Years of the Deep State." To give you a taste of what he believes, a few brief excerpts. On the JFK assassination:

The assassination of JFK was part of a full scale Coup d'état, the violent takeover of our government by a group of criminals. I have not the slightest doubt in my mind that JFK's assassination was the work of a network of criminals embedded within the political system and power structure of the United States. Key among the players in the Coup of '63 were LBJ; Allen Dulles and the CIA; J Edgar Hoover and the FBI; right wing Texas oil executives including Clint Murchison Sr., H.L. Hunt and D.H. Byrd; the East Coast business establishment centered around Rockefeller interests and the Council on Foreign Relations; Curtis Le May (chairman of the joint chief of staff), other right wing leaders of the military and elements of military intelligence; and the Bush family (both Prescott and George H.W. Bush)...

LBJ planned to kill JFK from the moment he considered becoming vice president.

And Gorton believes that the plotters of the assassination were ready to literally start a nuclear war as part of the coverup:

The contingencies beyond how to blame Oswald were much more serious. If it were superficially obvious that JFK's killing was the result of a conspiracy, Castro was to be blamed, and an invasion of Cuba was to quickly follow. Many anti-Castro Cubans who participated in the Coup were deeply disappointed that the invasion of Cuba never materialized. My studies of the Coup of '63 have led me to believe that even graver fall back strategies were embedded in the plot. If JFK's killing was obviously perceived as being part of large conspiracy, and the US public was not buying the Castro did it angle, the Coup plotters were in truly dire straits. These desperate men who ran the military, the FBI, some of largest companies in the world, and the US government faced the prospect of being hung for treason. I believe that the darkest scenarios envisioned by the Coup plotters involved declaring martial law and blaming the Russians and taking the country to (and possibly over) the brink of nuclear war with Russia...

The coverup, Gorton writes, has been deadly:

Over the years, certainly 50 and more likely more than 100 people have been killed to preserve the secrets of the Coup of '63. Many witnesses, reporters, people who knew too much, plot members at risk of being exposed, overzealous law enforcement officials have all been killed. Some of these deaths were clearly violent. Many were made to look like something else.

Another of Gorton's writings, "The Political Dominance of the Cabal" is a point-by-point primer on the Cabal's alleged members and murderous conspiracies.(Example: President Bill Clinton was a "Senior Member of the Dixie Mafia... Associated with dozens of suspicious deaths"; George HW Bush masterminded the savings and loan crisis, Reagan's shooting, and "domestic death squads.") The third document, "The Coup of '63, Part 1" is a JFK assassination-centric shorter version of "Fifty Years of the Deep State."

Yesterday, we called Mark Gorton to ask him about the authenticity of these documents. After a long pause, he said that he was mulling over the "consequences for me" if these documents came to light. Like what? "People killing me and my children," he said. "This has the potential to change my life."

Gorton did confirm that he wrote the essays, though, which he described as works in progress. He even agreed to send us the most recent versions of the documents, which are the versions we've embedded below. In his email to us yesterday, Gorton described his fears:

I am concerned because the criminal syndicate that I describe in these documents has a long history of harassing and killing people who describe what they do. They not only kill the people that speak up, on occasion, they also kill their family members. I have a good life and four great kids, and I would prefer not to bring the wrath of a criminal government down upon my head.

I would ask that you completely read all three documents and think about what they have to say. Having these documents suddenly appear on a blog like Gawker changes my risk profile in life.

That being said, I do think that the truth needs to be told about what has happened to our democracy. I have written these documents and I have sent them out to a limited audience. If you are interested in publishing this material, I ask that you talk to me and that this be done in a thoughtful manner. I would prefer that my life not be put in jeopardy by a casual, quick, one off, blog post.

We have decided to publish the material. We trust that any shadowy forces will be kept at bay by the public attention we are drawing to this topic.


Fifty Years of the Deep State

The Cabal

Coup of 63 50th Anniversary E-mail Draft


Part of my personal process of discovery of the events of 9/11 eventually led to looking at all of the major geopolitical events of my life beginning with the assassination of JFK when I was 7. What has astounded me is the amount of evidence that supports a serious alternative hypothesis for each of these events (JFK, Vietnam, MLK, RFK, Watergate, Iran/Contra, Gulf War I, '93 WTC, OKC, 2000 Selection, 9/11, Anthrax, Iraq War, Torture and Osama's Assassination to name but a few). It's for each of us to do our own research and determine the veracity of the 'official' narratives put forth for these and other events. I find them mostly wanting.

Thanks for the links, Orangutan, I look forward to reading Gorton's work.

Treason? Yes. Incompetence? - Absolutely Not.

Mark Gorton includes several aspects about 9/11 which contravene, or were omitted from the official version that I have never heard about before, for example, the extent to which top people within the FBI and other agencies committed treasonous acts in order to ensure that the attacks succeeded - and how the "persons-to-be-framed" (the hijackers) were allowed to enter and exit the US despite the efforts of regular CIA/FBI etc employees to intercept and prevent what they saw coming. A case along these lines I had heard about in the past, no doubt familiar to many who read this blog, was that concerning high profile Chicago lawyer David Schippers. See link here: http://www.democraticunderground.com/discuss/duboard.php?az=view_all&address=104x116709

Like so many of us, I have had many conversations with people re. 9/11 in which the "incompetence theory" is brought up. The points brought up in Gorton's essays tend to throw cold water on such. 9/11 must have been the result of years of meticulous planning by experts and professionals with in black operations, - many orders of magnitude greater than the very best that a group of 19 rookies with virtually no experience in any aspect of the act which was attributed to them. Whoever was responsible must have had access to a virtual truck-load of privileged, in confidence, or classified material - and the group named by the authorities absolutely do not qualify. This was no exhibition of "incompetence" but a gross misuse of power by cold-blooded psychopaths in positions of authority, who had the power to hijack the mission of each agency to which they were entrusted to lead.

Mark Gorton talks about "treason" a number of times in his essays. If We The People can ever get the likely suspects (and their accessories) into the dock of a US federal court - then "treason" would be a most appropriate charge, alongside mass murder, terrorism, illegal use of explosives, 4 counts of air piracy, the destruction of up to four commercial jets, private property damage running into 10s of $billions, destruction of federal assets, insurance fraud, money laundering, destruction of evidence in numerous civil and criminal trials, tampering with three major crime scenes, insider trading, perjury, authorizing torture (potentially a capital offense), a host of environmental violations relating to the creation of 10s of thousand of tons of toxic dust throughout Lower Manhattan and surrounding areas, multiple counts of willful criminal negligence and liability, multiple counts of violation of international treaties, the Geneva Convention and the US Constitution..... any more?

One day, they will see their day in court - whether in this life or the next.


Gorton has part of the picture, but he omits the i s rae l is who have their fingerprints all over it. See Zander Fuerza recent book online.... Master's of Deception.


Mr Gorton's work is a good distillation of the neoconazi part of the crime, but I have to agree, without zion, we don't get it done.
All evidence points toward a perfect storm of interrelated need that allowed this great criminal enterprise to be advanced and achieved.
An 'incorporation'. The narrative must join the streams. There is no 'one' without the 'other'. Saud played its part. ISI. the neocon cabal/wall st/intelligence whatever attached to the bush and clinton crime families, yes yes and yes again..
But 'those that must not be named' carrying dual citizenship and running the commission, the investigations, the courts: the ownership of WTC....all interconnected.....It was not for no reason the art students cried foul the Palestinian as 'common enemy' while being arrested 'recording the event' that terrible day....nor why Barak slotted BBC before the hour was out, scripting the 'war on terror' had begun,
and was to go global.......
All skills utilized......
The unholy alliance of deep state.


It's no wonder why they have to spy on every single communication in the country if they can so that they can protect their criminal enterprise.

Solving 9-11

Christopher Bollyn's "Solving 9-11" connects the Zionist (Israeli and U.S.) dots extremely thoroughly. It is interesting that Gorton's essays entirely omit this aspect of Motive Means and Opportunity.

I'm interested

in knowing why the Israeli connections to so many facets of 9-11 appear to be anathema here.

The messenger?

My guess is that it's Bollyn, and his handling of the subject matter rather than the subject matter per se that prompts negative reactions. The problem is that so much of the discussion concerning Israel and 9/11 has been courtesy of those who seem to arrive at this and every topic with 'Zionists' as an a priori conclusion.

In fact, just as some of the information implicating Muslims were likely deliberate sideshows (for example, the scene at the Department of Agriculture office involving a man alleged to be Mohamed Atta, requesting aerial photographs and singing the praises of bin Laden), I think it's possible that, for example, the 'dancing Israelis' and the 'art student' spies were likewise deliberate sideshows, intended precisely to draw the attention of those for whom 'Israel' is the explanation for just about everything, who could then be relied on to deepen divisions within the eventual truth movement with charges of 'covering up for Israel' against anyone who didn't share their emphasis.

'...anathema here'? Have a look at this:



Thanks for the link, rm.

Yes, there are those who would like to divide the 9-11 truth movement by pressing controversies which have little ultimate value. I have not found this to be the case with Mr. Bollyn. I've studied "Solving 9-11" and think the work he has done here is important to understanding the tapestry of connections comprising the 9-11 false flag. He repeats that "Zionists" were not the only ones driving it -- only a very significant portion of those in position to make it happen.

Bollyn stresses the difference between Judaism and Zionism repeatedly. This is a crucial point. It appears that many are familiar with his work only second-hand. "Solving 9-11" is very much worth studying in my opinion.

The Israeli "art students" and "movers" as side-shows? Really? Celebrating while taking pictures of the burning towers, arrested and found with thousands of dollars cash in one's sock and explosives residues in their van? Admitting on Israeli TV that they were here to "document the event" ? Suggesting that this was a diversion is groundless in my view. This, together with overwhelming evidence of high-level known Zionists (not all Israelis) presses a question worth asking in depth.

The fundamental issue is why it is appears to be a largely untouchable subject. The link you posted is from 2008. Thanks again for it. But it speaks to my point that while there is tremendous evidence of high-level Zionist involvement, many avoid it with prejudice.

To be clear

I guess my tendency is to think that those closest to the actual carrying out of a covert operation will be careful to act discreetly, whereas very indiscreet attention-grabbing behavior is, by contrast, an indication that the plotters are trying to draw our attention away from things they don't want us to focus on. But, to be clear, that does NOT mean I think that such incidents are things that shouldn't be followed up on. They should be. I'm just not sure how much we can discern from them in terms of overall responsibility for the operation. As for the Neocon PNACers, the question is, how decisive was their support for Zionist goals, as compared with US corporate-military imperial motives, in motivating them in whatever roles they played re 9/11.
