Wayne Madsen ReportApril 3-4, 2018 – John Bolton: a pervert and physical assaulter of women blackmailed by foreign intelligence agents, just like his boss

While an official in the Reagan administration’s U.S. Agency for International Development (USAID), Bolton, according to divorce papers served by his ex-wife Christina Bolton, allegedly forced her to engage in group sex activities at New York’s Plato’s Retreat, a swingers’ sex club, in the 1970s and 80s. The Boltons were married in 1972 and they had no children. They separated on August 15, 1982, while Bolton was on a trip for USAID to Vienna, Austria.

WMR has learned that during the time Bolton frequented Plato’s Retreat, the sex club was a popular haunt for Soviet KGB and Czechoslovak StB intelligence agents, who were on the lookout for blackmail information on Americans holding sensitive jobs. In Bolton, these agents nabbed a huge Cold War prize, an official with USAID, an agency that had close ties to the Central Intelligence Agency. Plato’s Retreat advertised that, for a price, it would make videotapes of customers’ orgies. Apparently, the KGB and StB made their own tapes and photographs of sexual trysts involving Americans of interest, people like Bolton.

Interestingly, StB files in 1988 contained information about one Donald Trump, a habitué of Studio 54, another problematic New York club — a night spot known for drug use and underage prostitution.

After interviewing Milos Zelnicek, father of Trump’s Czechoslovak-born wife, Ivana Zelnickova Trump, the StB concluded that Trump planned to run for president of the United States in 1996. The StB report stated, “Even though it looks like a utopia, D. TRUMP is confident he will succeed.”

“Dennis Shields, a resident who said he lived on the 42nd floor, said there were no orders to evacuate. But he rushed outside after receiving a private text message from Trump’s personal lawyer Michael Cohen.

The pair grew up together, Shields said.

“He said, ‘Are you in the building?’ I said, ‘Yes.’ He said, ‘You better get out ASAP,’” Shields recalled. “That’s how I knew to get out, otherwise I’d still be in there.”

Atlanta Black StarDecomposing Body Found In Chattahoochee River Identified as Missing CDC Employee Dr. Timothy Cunningham

On February 27, CBS News had reported

His next door neighbor, Viviana Tory, says Cunningham said something odd to her husband the day he went missing, reports CBS News’ Omar Villafranca. “He told my husband to tell his wife – me – to erase his cellphone number from my cellphone,” Tory said.

Your News Wire (a site which has had more than its share of unretracted blunders, and hence one we generally do not link) claims that Cunningham was the source for a January 15 story where he is allegedly quoted as saying…

“Some of the patients I’ve administered the flu shot to this year have died,” the doctor said, adding “I don’t care who you are, this scares the crap out of me.” “We have seen people dying across the country of the flu, and one thing nearly all of them have in common is they got the flu shot.”

Given his area of expertise, it is not plausible that he would be administering common flu shots; however, he may have been considering whistle-blowing on other matters…

Wayne Madsen ReportApril 6-8, 2018 — Another scientist, another suspicious death

Cunningham, a commissioned U.S. Public Health Service officer, was involved in leading-edge research on viruses like Zika and Ebola. Cunningham focused on the vectors between such viral outbreaks and race, gender, and geography. With controversial research being conducted by a number of countries into developing genetic-based biological weaponry, Cunningham’s work may have posed a threat to certain quarters…
