Soviet Agent Oscar D. Skelton Recruited Soviet Agent Lester Bowles Pearson into the Civil Service of Canada


In his 1982 pamphlet entitled “Inside the Featherbed File? … “, former undercover RCMP Officer, Patrick Walsh, gave a cameo image of Oscar D. Skelton.

Walsh reports that in the “Featherbed” file, other RCMP Officers claim to have established that the “Father of Canada’s Civil Service”, meaning Skelton, was a Soviet agent, a recruit of Louis Kon of the USSR’s infamous Comintern.

Walsh also alludes to a short reference on Skelton in Peter C. Newman’s The Canadian Establishment. Said Walsh:

In his best-seller, The Canadian Establishment, Peter C. Newman gives only a superficial thumbnail sketch of comrade Oscar Skelton: “During the next 16 years, Skelton founded and built up Canada’s External Affairs department and as MacKenzie King’s closest adviser became the most important civil servant in Ottawa.” In his Appendix I dealing with Ottawa’s Mandarins, there is only a mere mention of Skelton’s belonging to the Rideau Club and having taught at Queen’s University, and no mention of his membership in the Canadian-Soviet Friendship Society & how he also enticed* MacKenzie King to join!

Walsh continues:

Skelton was careful to groom only pro-Soviet civil servants in the External Affairs Department. Most of them were being briefed by the Canadian Institute of International Affairs (CIIA), the Canadian branch of the notorious pro-Soviet Institute of Pacific Relations. Many of them (including Lester B. Pearson) saw service in Washington & London where their counterparts were also members of Soviet espionage rings.

According to declassified parts of the infamous Silvermaster spy file, Elizabeth Bentley, an American who had worked for the Soviets in military intelligence defected back to America and was debriefed on a number of occasions, including by the U.S. McCarran Committee and by agents of the New York Office of the FBI in 1951.

Bentley revealed that Lester (akaMike”) Pearson, a “highly placed Canadian government official” in “the Canadian Embassy in Washington” in 1943 and 1944, fed information to Soviet military intelligence (i.e., Bentley, herself) on “top level British policy and political matters” through Hazen Size, a “member of the Canadian Film Board in Washington, D. C.” with whom Pearson was “very friendly in Canada”, the two being “connected with left wing circles in that country”.

“By confidential memorandum dated August 27, 1951, Inspector Bayfield of the RCMP was advised of the identical information provided to the Department of State and the Department of Justice under letters of that date” by Elizabeth Bentley.

Nonetheless, Soviet agent Lester Bowles Pearson, who at some point was President of the infamous Canadian Institute of International Affairs (CIIA) which was “briefing” the pro-Soviets hired by Skelton, rose to become Prime Minister of Canada.

The following black and white archival video footage documents the fact that Red agent, Oscar D. Skelton, recruited Red agent Lester Bowles Pearson into Mackenzie King’s federal civil service.

Narrator: Armed with his M.A., Mike (aka Lester Bowles Pearson) returned to Canada, and the next few years found him lecturing in history and coaching sports at the University of Toronto.

But, off in Ottawa, a Dr. O. D. Skelton was Deputy Minister of a new department called External Affairs.

He intruded into the academic life and asked Mike to write a civil service examination.

Lester Pearson: I was uh — I had rather a kind of a — exalted idea of foreign offices and diplomacy from reading books. And uh, I considered I had achieved a pretty — a position pretty high — of professional distinction. I was now almost a diplomat, and, perhaps I was a little too impressed by my transition.

I remember going into the door — through the door at the East Block behind Dr. Skelton and the guard saluted Dr. Skelton smartly and paid no attention to me whatever. I thought, well, obviously, he doesn’t know who I am.

Well, he didn’t pay any attention to me for a good many years.

* Quite frankly, I doubt that Mackenzie King was “enticed” into the Canadian-Soviet Friendship Society. I think he walked in happily. Nor do I believe he was merely the “docile puppet” that some have made him out to be. King was a long-time protégé of the infamous American financiers of the bloody Bolshevik “revolution” (military coup on Russia) in 1979: the moneybag Rockefellers. The Rockefellers’ oil empire in America was financed by the equally if not more infamous Rothschilds of Europe who also financed the 1917 war of the Jews upon Russia. The Rockefellers maintained a leash on their Liberal poodle Mackenzie King by employing him in between his elected mandates. In a like manner, Power Corporation of Canada today, whose top men sit on the Board and Senate of the CIIA which was briefing the Reds recruited by Skelton, have kept all their own political dogs well fed between stints in the Prime Minister’s Office — (i.e., Pierre Elliott Trudeau, Jean Chrétien, Paul Martin Junior). All these men, as well as other coddled agents of the supercapitalists, have been involved in merging North America into a Leninist regional union). Ed. NSIM.

New Democratic Party of Canada (NDP) Exposed as Communists (Guest Video by “Seeing Red Yet?”)

Guest video by Seeing Red Yet? A Progressive Look at Cultural Marxism


Tactic: sacrifice the occasional Communist immigrant to keep up appearances

Pierre Elliott Trudeau and Joe Clark, the only two names we currently know for sure, squelched RCMP files on Trudeau himself, and on the Gouzenko revelations (much of which were never brought to light), and the “Featherbed File” on suspected Communist subversives in Canada’s federal government and civil service. They squelched them officially with Orders in Council in 1979, which were likely repeated in subsequent years by subsequent governments.

They moreover squelched information going back decades to the 1920s when Oscar D. Skelton, a Soviet Comintern agent, was made the “father” of Canada’s civil service, and the Prime Minister’s closest adviser. Skelton staffed Canada’s civil service with Marxists and Marxist sympathizers! We know this from a former undercover RCMP officer, Patrick Walsh, who exposed these facts in 1982, including the fact that the documented information has all been squelched by our “government”.

We know the RCMP suspected Trudeau. We know Trudeau led a Communist delegation at Moscow in 1952. We know Trudeau appointed Soviet agents to high-level positions in the federal government and civil service, Jean-Louis Gagnon for one, who was exposed in the Gouzenko revelations. A future friend of Trudeau’s, Mitchell Sharp (later of Rockefeller’s Trilateral Commission) helped Gagnon escape to Brazil and gave him a job at Brazilian Traction, thus keeping Soviet agent Gagnon out of reach of the “royal commission” while the Gouzenko hearings proceeded, unable to force him to appear. And when the smoke cleared, they brought Gagnon back and put him into government!

We know the CIA suspected Lester Bowles Pearson while Pearson was exercising the office of Prime Minister — but the FBI had a file on Pearson going back to 1951 confirming he was a Soviet agent handing high-level secrets to Soviet military intelligence. Do the FBI and the CIA not keep track of their own paperwork? Or, are they, too, full of Communists and Soviet agents?

All that information and more has been squelched for decades while those men proceeded to take this country into a continental nose-dive towards illegal referendums in Quebec under the Communist Parti Québécois to dismantle Canada for the top half of the Communist continental regional union: i.e., merger with USA and Mexico disguised as “trade deals”. That merger is on the model of what Mikhail Gorbachev has called the “New European Soviet“. We are going to get the “New North American Soviet“.

Therefore, today, while Canada is actively being annexed to the USA and Mexico in a Leninist-Stalinist regional union on the pretext of 9/11 to complete the initial stages of integration begun with the Auto Pact (Pearson), the FTA and NAFTA (Trudeau and Mulroney), we are fed this pablum by our incompetent and controlled “News” media, implying this hapless “Charlie Chan” is our number one “suspect”?

What is most worth investigating about this Chinese fall-guy is not merely his links to the Communist Party of China, but the fact he’s with the New Democratic Party of Canada (NDP) which is and has always been a full member of the Socialist International (SI), adhering to all its principles, including the 1962 Oslo Declaration:

The ultimate objective of the parties of the Socialist International is nothing less than world government. As a first step towards it, they seek to strengthen the United Nations so that it may become more and more effective as an instrument for maintaining peace.”

The whole NDP is Communist, never mind “members” of it! The NDP (from which pro-Soviet Trudeau emerged before he leaped to the Liberals where he carried out NDP Communist policy), are socialists, are Communists, just like the Parti Québécois with its hidden French-only 1972 manifesto calling for a Communist state of Quebec with centralized planning, production, worker self-management, the elimination of private enterprise, and the “extirpation” of “individual liberty”.

The NDP even has a hidden party constitution which plans to abolish private property! They even have an NDP “Socialist Caucus” (it’s Communist!) with the logo of the Socialist International (SI) on it, of which the entire NDP is and has always been a full member.

If you ever wondered why Pierre Elliott Trudeau always wore a rose in his lapel, it’s not because he was an over-aged bachelor. It was because he was a Socialist from the NDP, and the rose is from the Socialist International… all of whose member parties are traitors to their own nations who work for a foreign power with a view to destroying these nations for Communist regional government.

Why do you think John English, Trudeau’s colleague and fellow member of the Canadian Institute of International Affairs (branch of the Royal Institute of International Affairs which is doing world government for the Zionist banks) entitled his biography of Trudeau, “Citizen of the World“?  Just because Trudeau was a world traveller?  Or because Trudeau, the socialist NDP’er in Liberal clothing, was restructuring Canada — and America — with a little help from his leftist friends in the American CFR — for Communist regional union under world government.

This is the real NDP. And they are not Mom’s apple pie. In fact, in their “socialist Canada”, Mom’s apple pie will be rationed, its production curtailed or even eliminated. Mom will then be eliminated.

A Communist regional union is unfolding in North America on the way to a Communist world government.

But how can you even take CSIS seriously?

How can you even ask CSIS to investigate anything?

There has never been any investigation into the real extent of the Soviet penetration of Canada. Those who penetrated came in from the top-down and squelched all prospect of a real investigation of themselves because they were wielding the levers of power.

They no doubt also  staffed Canada’s CSIS — like the rest of the cream of our federal crop — with still more agents of the Soviet Cominern… who are using this Chinese NDP “member of parliament” as their fall-guy to make it look like they are really investigating something, and really protecting Canada.

Exposing this Chinese NDP guy is a CSIS charade!

It’s obviously calculated to make the current usurpation of Constitutional government in Canada, the government of “Red” Harper who finances radical Communists in Quebec illegally with federal taxpayers’ money to the tune of millions, look like Mom’s apple pie. How Canadian!

They are brilliant. They are sacrificing a couple of Chinese Communist agents to make themselves look innocent. This is the wolf in wolf’s clothing!

What Canada needs is to open the Featherbed File, open all those Gouzenko files that were squelched, open Trudeau’s RCMP file, please, and do it quickly before the current de facto “government” completes the Communist regional union under the upcoming Communist one-world government at the UN, which Louis Saint-Laurent (erstwhile Rhodes Scholar*) himself in 1946 called “the basis of the world government”.


* Saint -Laurent received the offer of a Rhodes Scholarship, but turned it down at the time because of personal obligations. The source of this information is the French version of J. W. Pickersgill’s biography of the man published in 1983 by Lidec (ISBN 2-7608-7006-5), entitled, appropriately enough: Louis Saint-Laurent. Middle of page 9: “Devinant que le moment était venu de gagner sa vie, Saint-Laurent déclina l’offre et suggéra à Barbeau de se porter candidat à sa place.” Translation: “Guessing that the moment had arrived for him to earn a living, St -Laurent declined the offer and suggested to Barbeau that he become a candidate to replace him.”

Notorious turncoat Philby ran interference in Gouzenko spy sensation, author finds


Harold "Kim" Philby (British Secret Service) 1955 file photoUNDATED — Harold “Kim” Philby (British Secret Service) 1955 file photo. (Died May 1988). A new book about the history of Britain’s foreign intelligence service has shed fresh light on Canada’s most famous spy case — the 1945 defection of Soviet embassy employee Igor Gouzenko — and the clandestine efforts by notorious British double-agent Kim Philby to manipulate events in Ottawa and London to Moscow’s advantage.

Queen’s University Belfast historian Keith Jeffery, author of The Secret History of MI6: 1909-1949, says classified documents that only he was authorized to see while researching the book show the powerful and traitorous Philby issuing memos at MI6 headquarters with a “cautious and soothing tone” — a strategy designed to “downplay” the significance of what were, in fact, sensational revelations from Gouzenko about the existence of a Soviet spy ring in North America.

Igor Gouzenko (1919-1982).  Photograph by: Canadian Security Intelligence Service, Photo HandoutGouzenko, a cipher clerk at the Soviet embassy in Ottawa, defected in September 1945 with about 100 telegrams and other classified documents he’d snatched from a consular safe, exposing an extensive espionage network — including scientists, bureaucrats and even the Montreal-area socialist MP Fred Rose — operating in North America and Britain at the end of the Second World War.

Among the secret dispatches stolen by Gouzenko were several that revealed the August 1945 handover of experimental uranium samples to Soviet agents in Montreal by Alan Nunn May, a British nuclear scientist working in Canada at the time.

Gouzenko’s revelations about May, later dubbed the “Atom Spy” when his crimes became public, stunned political leaders in Canada, Britain and the U.S.

Secret papers declassified in 2007 through the U.K. National Archives and others published last year in historian Christopher Andrew’s official history of the MI5 — Britain’s domestic spy agency — have previously documented some of Philby’s efforts to stymie the Gouzenko investigation.

But Jeffery told Postmedia News that the secret MI6 files he probed contained “spanking new stuff” that showed how Philby was exploiting his position as head of counter-intelligence at MI6 to restrict information flows in London and to thwart Canadian, British and American officials who were trying to understanding the scope and implications of Gouzenko’s disclosures.

“It would appear,” Philby notes in one memo unearthed by Jeffery, that Gouzenko’s information is “genuine though not necessarily accurate in all details.”

And when Canadian and British intelligence officials make arrangements to arrest May at a meeting he had scheduled with his Soviet handler in London, Philby pointedly asserts in a report that “other members of the (Soviet spy) network will have been warned” of Gouzenko’s defection and predicts that the expected rendezvous “between May and the Soviet agent in the U.K. will fail to materialize.”

As Jeffery writes, it was Philby himself who was secretly notifying Moscow about the Soviet spy crisis unfolding in Ottawa, and his memos to unsuspecting MI6 colleagues and Canadian partners included “predictions of developments which he had already engineered himself.”

Furthermore, Jeffery discovered, Philby took steps to make certain that MI6 sent agent Roger Hollis instead of the more competent Jane Archer to interrogate Gouzenko.

Philby’s “preference, significantly, was for Hollis rather than Archer, whom he considered the abler and more knowledgeable, and therefore more of a threat.”

Jeffery — reached for an interview in Washington, where he’s scheduled to discuss his book on Friday at the Woodrow Wilson International Center — describes the Gouzenko affair as “the start of the Cold War.”

What he discovered in the secret MI6 archives on the Canadian episode, he said, “are the footprints of Kim Philby” appearing everywhere as he scrambled to dampen British interest in Gouzenko’s revelations.

“He was in a powerful position — just the right place — to impede the investigations that the Gouzenko defection triggers,” said Jeffery. “He was communicating directly to the Soviet Union. He knows that Nunn May is coming back to London and that a rendezvous is set up” with a Soviet agent outside the British Museum — and that British and Canadian intelligence officials are planning to arrest the pair at the meeting.

Philby and his Soviet contacts “are not able to warn Nunn May or to get him out — he’s kind of sacrificed,” said Jeffery. “But the Soviet link — of course crucial if he’d been captured — never turns up for the rendezvous because he’d been tipped off by Philby.”

Nunn May was eventually charged and convicted of passing official secrets to the Soviets. He was sentenced to 10 years hard labour, but served only six before his release in 1952.

He worked as a scientific researcher in Ghana until the late 1970s, and died in Britain in 2003.

The fallout from the Gouzenko affair was far-reaching and — according to many experts — the episode locked the U.S., Britain and their allies into a political and military standoff with the Soviet Union that would dominate global politics for nearly 50 years.

In the end, notes Jeffery, Philby “can’t prevent the big picture” revealed in Gouzenko’s smuggled documents that Soviet agents had penetrated North American society.

“What he manages to succeed to do in the micro-story is to manipulate things a bit and to protect the Soviet network in the United Kingdom.”

Philby’s accurate “prediction” that Nunn May’s contact won’t show at the planned sting even had the effect of reinforcing for MI6 brass “what a brilliant man he is — this man who can see how the Soviets are operating.

“Self-fulfilling prophecies are great — especially if you know what’s going to happen,” Jeffery said. “It actually confirmed his reputation within the service as a man of very sharp intelligence.”

Philby wasn’t exposed as a double-agent until 1963, when he escaped to the Soviet Union. He was “absolutely trusted” in Western intelligence circles until that time, said Jeffery.

The historian’s 800-page book — published in Britain under the title MI6: The History of the Secret Intelligence Service, 1909-1949 — was researched under what Jeffery has acknowledged was a “Faustian pact” with the spy agency that gave him unprecedented access to secret files but allowed MI6 officials to vet the final manuscript prior to publication.
