I'm Jackie Moran your host for this series in previous episodes. We've seen how Maryland used her power over men to escape life of loneliness and abuse as a foster child and and then to help her gain a career in the movies where she became the greatest sex symbol of her generation I just his asking for more aw but my heart belongs to by nineteen sixty two however and with three failed marriages marriages behind her Marilyn's tangled love life had put her at the center of a deadly circle of power. Maryland becomes very important in American politics because very early in nineteen sixty she meets and is entrenched by John F. Kennedy by Senator Kennedy she was having an affair with him with Frank Sinatra with people in the rat pack and she became a fixture in Hollywood. She certainly had outta stairs with a lot of powerful people and Was it something that she got so embroiled in their affairs that she had threatened to you. Expose them or talk about them to the press or admit to knowing some secrets about the mafia or the government or Oranje of these other things we're going to examine how Maryland's affairs with the president and his attorney general brother as well as her relationships with Frank Sinatra and Chicago Kogo mob boss Sam Giancana in the supposedly communist activities of ex husband. Arthur Miller drew the attention of notorious. FBI Director J Edgar Hoover and we'll we'll see how this all made her the most important player in these figures deadly power games against each other and put her at the heart of the most devastating political conspiracy conspiracy in American history. There were intertwined orbits of influence that indeed Oursel- murky that I don't think anyone will ever or no forces countermanding one another. Everybody had an angle. Everybody has something to protect to hide Maryland had begun a passionate affair with JFK as early as nineteen sixty but by the time of her infamous happy birthday Mr President performance at Madison Square Garden in May nineteen sixty two he he had become alarmed by her increasing indiscretion and broke things off brother. Bobby was there to pick up the pieces she obviously was fascinated sided with and had a relationship with John F. Kennedy and then Bobby Kennedy followed suit as well the Kennedy Brothers have a uh-huh modus operandi when it came to women whereas Jack would begin in a relationship with a particular woman and then pass her on to bobby. JFK It was one that she hard out. You and Bobby was a one that came along and picked up the crumbs. You might say however however by August nineteen sixty two when bobby also threatened to pull the plug on their relationship. Maryland decided to fight fire with fire. It was to prove a terrible terrible mistake. Here's author in Hollywood historian. Bill birds when Bobby Kennedy breaks off the fair in nineteen sixty two Maryland is so upset she calls the Justice Department to leave a message with Bobby Kennedy threatening the Kennedy brothers with public public exposure of cheers with her. If they don't acknowledge the affairs in public opinion return phone call drew about bobby no room in my life. Maybe I should stop being a coward myself. Maryland's threat went beyond simply exposing the affairs. She claimed that the Kennedys pillow talk included state secrets and worse Maryland San Ed that when she and Jack Kennedy were together she would whisper things to her that were classified state secrets for example Boca. She threatened Bobby Kennedy with going public by saying that the president told her that the CIA was planning planning to kill Cuban President Fidel Castro sent. She said this she said on the message. I know all without that secret airbase in Nevada what secret airbase in Nevada many of us have been there but most of us don't like to talk about it.

Here's lowest banner author of Maryland. The Passion the paradox there were a lot of people angry with her including the Kennedys the FBI CIA was pretty mad and some of her friends. We're angry with her. They were all angry because of the involvement with the Kennedys and the fact that she knew national secrets and that she was going to reveal them. It feels she was going to reveal them at her phone tapped and now a new player was to enter the game one who saw Marilyn Monroe as a means of leverage against each Glenn of those other parties the FBI had a file on her especially if she did or said anything that could embarrass the the office of the president and being as she had an obvious affair with JFK. I think really got the FBI motivated to try and come up with a smear campaign formerly classified files released by the FBI in the nineteen eighties reveal that the bureau's all powerful director J J. Edgar Hoover saw in Maryland a means to further his own power plays Hollywood historian Bill Burns Explains J. Edgar Hoover was out to get the Kennedys he was dictated that the Kennedys he was taping Marilyn Monroe's phone calls and he was also looking into into Marilyn Monroe's relationship with the rat pack with Frank Sinatra Dean Martin with Peter Lawford with Joey Bishop with Sammy Davis Junior. He was looking getting into that because J. Edgar Hoover was business partners with Mafia boss Frank Costello in a race track in Florida. I think that if she was bugged I won't be surprised if it was over because he was very controlling all stars and he had a hand and all that he also was very the Anti Kennedy so he might have been looking for something that could damage them. Poodle was completely compromised in this but he wanted to keep tabs on Marilyn Monroe Enro- both for the Kennedys.

"Michael you've written and published an article titled lessons from the FBI secret warrant, activism, it appeared in the independent and on portside, and we'd like to hear hear you read it today. Happy to oblige you the Federal Bureau of investigation tried to destroy left organizations and the black freedom movement during the last major upsurge in radical politics in this country in the nineteen sixties. It looks like they're trying to do it. Again, the bureau's Cohen tell counterintelligence program was a secret operation, the bureau carried out against left wing groups from nine hundred and fifty six to nineteen seventy-one it first targeted the communist party and was expanded to the Socialist Workers Party the P nine hundred sixty one and then to the new left in nineteen sixty eight in a secret nine hundred sixty eight memo longtime FBI director j Edgar Hoover directed. His agents to quote. Expose disrupt. And otherwise neutralize the activities of various new left organizations. We must frustrate every effort of these groups and individuals to consolidate their forces or to recruit new or faithful adherence Hoover director's venomous, especially at the black movement writing that quote, we must prevent the rise of a new black messiah the FBI and its it's accomplishes. The Chicago police department admitted to the nineteen sixty nine assassination of Chicago socialist. And Black Panther leader. Fred Hampton in his bed along with his bodyguard. Mark clark. The circumstances around the murderers of Martin Luther King junior who was harassed by the FBI for years, and Malcolm X remain suspicious. Although Cohen tell pro was ended after it was exposed in nineteen seventy-one, particularly by the break in the media, Pennsylvania FBI office and the FBI investigation of yesterday. BP ended in nineteen seventy six their practices of government surveillance, infiltration and disruption of radical groups have never gone away. Most of what we know about Cohen shell pro resulted from a lawsuit Socialist Workers Party versus attorney general which the MVP filed a nine hundred seventy three through its attorney Leonard Boudin, the finest movement constitutional litigator of his time in one thousand nine hundred eighty six a federal judge in Manhattan, awarded the party two hundred sixty four thousand dollars in damages. The case is extraordinarily important today. When socialist ideas are growing in popularity and socialists are getting elected to office for the first time in almost one hundred years. The FBI I investigated yesterday in nineteen forty when the bureau added it to its contel project in nineteen sixty one a secret memorandum said that the party had been quote, openly, exposing this line and local and national basis through running candidates for public office and strongly directing and or supporting causes such as Castro's, Cuba and integration problems in the south. The discovery aspect of the lawsuit took eight years and yielded an astounding ten million pages of documents. The judge told booed in quote, you're not going to believe what's in these documents. The yesterday was a Trotskyist group, which traced its origins back to the anti World War. One left wing of the socialist party led by Eugene, Victor, Debs, it advocated for a democratic form of socialism. Unlike what existed in the Soviet Union at its peak. It had three thousand members including its youth group. It had a weekly newspaper monthly magazine and international news service, a publishing house, and it owned a five storey headquarters in an old ship repair building in the west village, it had shepherds and most major cities and on many college campuses. It helped organize some of the largest demonstrations against the Vietnam war, the nineteen Ninety-six trial, three months. What was proved the FBI had used three hundred infiltrators and thirteen hundred informers over a fifteen year period and burglarized, SWAT officers and members homes more than two hundred times wiretaps had been employed for twenty thousand days and listening devices for twelve thousand landlords were contacted an effort to get people evicted and workplaces revisited in order to get people fired. The agents were also instructed to stir up mistrust in the movement and create antagonistic factions inside the party such as by sending anonymous letters to a prominent black SWAT member insisting that he and his fellow quote party monkeys should leave and join the Black Panthers agents tried to get the party to engage in illegal activities such as handing out flyers at an antiwar demonstration calling yesterday p and other organizers cowards for not wanting to get quote battle wounds, fighting the quote pigs. The nine hundred eighty six victory was historic. The federal court decision held that advocated for socialism and being in a socialist organisation were legal ruling that quote, these disruption operations were directed at the kind of political activities that the had a constitutional right to carry out. Quote for the first time the FBI's disruptions surreptitious entries and use of informers have been found unconstitutional. The nation magazine wrote, quote, all in all it amounted to a domestic contract Parisian against a peaceful political organization for no reason, other than it's ideological orientation. The FBI had played this role as a quote, political police of the national government Noam Chomsky wrote the federal government represented by the then US attorney Rudolph Giuliani maintained to the bitter end that had a right to undermine an organization just because of its ideas. No government official who participated in the campaign against the ester BP was ever prosecuted. And no congressional hearings were ever held. In the post nine eleven era, even the modest legal restraints that were imposed on law enforcement surveillance and infiltration of political activity during the nineteen seventies have been tossed aside. Your surveillance state has grown even larger with the creation of the department of homeland security that works closely with the FBI and local police departments to monitor lawful political dissent. The FBI has already infiltrated Muslim masks and admitted to a program of targeting, those whom they call quote, black identity extremists. That is black people organizing to oppose police violence under Obama, the FBI and homeland security work closely with local police departments in the fall of two thousand eleven to monitor and ultimately break up the encampments in various cities. We need to build salad organizations that can withstand government attempts at disruption. Here are some key practices to remember. We should not advocate. Anything illegal keeping in mind that the government will try to put the onus of violence on us whether on them where it belongs don't say anything of social media or other electron communications, you would not want the government to see they have access to all of it when they want it within our social movements, don't turn political disagreements into personal feuds, don't engage in media sleep disruption baby and be wary of those who do so on a regular basis. The government has a long history of using infiltrators to sow strife within left organizations. Socialism is no longer a dirty word. We are growing numbers and strength. It would be naive. It would be naive to think if the powers that be are not cognizant of the threats to their power and privilege and are not taking steps. To block it one thing. I'd like to add to this pieces that are Orgainzation that were members of the national lawyers guild was also spied on over the course of several decades, and our lawyers successfully sued to get the FBI to admit it spied on us, which they don't do that often. No. State secret, but they had wired the telephones in the national office they had a couple of individual serving on the national boards. And I think also the DC chapter they rummage through people's garbage. The did all the usual tactics that you will looted too. Yeah. We, of course know that they're they're not sitting down.

That moment that speech, solidified king is powerful voice for peace and Justice. But while the world applauded and incredibly powerful man saw something quite different. He saw threat to the established order this man had a vendetta and the means to make Martin Luther King junior's life, a waking nightmare. Coming up will look at Dr king's most formidable enemy, FBI director, j Edgar Hoover. Now back to the story. Gee, you're Hoover was a man who valued control. That's putting it mildly as the founding director of the Federal Bureau of investigation. Hoover. Ran his agency with the brutal officiency of a dictator. He was an institution unto himself in the nineteen sixties his dedication to hierarchical. Order put him at odds with the civil rights movement which sought to expand power to all the people. The main target of Hoover's suspicion was the increasingly public face of the movement, Martin Luther King junior. The public acrimony between the two men would become the stuff of legend it began in nineteen sixty three when Hoover secured authorization from attorney general Robert Kennedy to wiretap king this meant bugging his phone his office, and the many hotels he stayed in publicly president John F Kennedy supported the civil rights movement. But this show. Was that the FBI and the Kennedy administration viewed king as a potential threat to national security? They were particularly concerned that communists had infiltrated his ranks and what harness the civil rights movement as a mouthpiece for propaganda. But with the assassination of John F Kennedy and the ascendancy of his vice president Lyndon Johnson, the political landscape changed dramatically in Johnson. King had a direct line to the highest levels of government, though, the intimidating Texan president and the gentle preacher had their disagreements. They shared a common goal the passage of the historic Civil Rights Act their relationship along with kings, criticisms of the FBI's sluggish response to hate crimes presented further threats to Hoover's control never one to back away from a challenge. The grizzled FBI director went on the offensive one day after the Nobel committee announced its intention to. Award. Dr king the peace prize. Hoover took the rare step of holding a press conference in front of the press. He mounted a full throated defense of the bureau's record on civil rights. He said quote in spite of some remarkable success in civil rights cases, some detractors alleged the F B I had nothing to do in this field. And quote, if the assembled journalists thought they were meant to read between the lines Hoover quickly made his point clear he pressed on quote in view of kings, attitude and his continued criticism of the F B I on this point. I consider king to be the most notorious liar in the country, and quote, the shot had been fired. It would be followed by too far more insidious acts of intimidation. The I was an F B I wiretap recording which splice together audio of king having extramarital sex in hotel rooms in an effort to. Discredit king as a moral leader..
