The Franklin Cover-up, Straight and Paul Bishop


by Wes Fager

In all my life there is only one book I've read that had certain parts in it which I could not bring myself to read. That book is The Franklin Cover-up (TFC) by attorney and former Nebraska state Senator John DeCamp. The book is about a pedophile ring operating out of Omaha, Nebraska which has ties to Father Flannigan's Boy's Town and to George H. W. Bush's White House. [It was by reporting on this ring by Rev. Moon's Washington Times that the senior Bush became a loyal Moonie fan.] The first time I ever heard about the 1983 kidnapping of a Des Moines, Iowa paperboy named Johnny Gosch was from TFC. Now I'm hearing about Johnny Gosch again. Except now it's about George W. Bush, a former White House news reporter and Straight, Inc.

According to Tim Schmitt , in Educate-yourself, six months after Johnny Gosch was kidnapped a man named George Paul Bishop (often known just as Paul Bishop) showed up at Doreen Gosch's (Johnny's mother) home claiming he was a "CIA asset" and offered his assistance in finding Johnny. Subsequently Noreen Gosch received many phone calls from Paul Bishop. She claims the calls were coming from Sen. Charles Grassley's (Republican, Iowa) office in Washington, DC. But Paul Bishop suddenly dropped out of Noreen's life in 1985 and his phone number no longer worked. Then George Paul Bishop was arrested in Fairfax, Virginia on Feb. 4, 2005 after police allegedly found an explicit video of a 16 year old boy in his home. George Paul Bishop is now in prison (release date Mar. 3, 2008) and on Virginia's registered sex offender's list.

And now a California woman alleges that the same Paul Bishop was used to locate and retrieve her brother (and possibly several others) back to the destructive, Republican-backed Straight rehab treatment center in Springfield, Virginia. (See Rigorous Intuition.)

The top figure in the photo is from The Johnny Gosch Foundation web page. Noreen Gosch says the photo came from JacobsTales.com--a pedophile site no longer on-line. She says it is a photo of her son shortly after his abduction. The bottom figure is of former White House pool reporter James Guckert, an alleged male prostitute with the Secret Service-approved alias Jeff Gannon. According to The Law Party's web page, TFC author John DeCamp has stated, "I believe Johnny Gosch and Jeff Gannon are one and the same person--but I am not in a position to know positively."

Pathway trying to expand

Miller Newton's Kids of North Jersey was the first 2nd generation Straight to open expansion programs. Terri Nissley's Pathway Family Center is the second. Nissley founded Pathway a few miles from Straight-Detroit when that program closed and modeled Pathway after Straight. Later she opened a facility in Indianapolis. Now, just as in Straight, Pathway is claiming 20 -25 percent of the kids enrolled in its Indianapolis program are from Porter County so Pathway is seeking government money to open a center in Chesterton in Porter County, Indiana.

Just as in Straight there are horror stories that shame forever the reputation of children so that the program can grow. This time Julie Brown of Chesterton tells the world that one son was a "former Eagle Scout and a straight-A student", but then he turned to heroin and was sent to jail for selling drugs. Her family found salvation at Pathway but along the way she found another son was addicted to cold packets and he too is in Pathway. But now, she told a reporter, all three of her boys are doing well--implying to this reader that she was perhaps having problems with all three. Ms. Brown tells the reporter, "[Pathway] gave back my family."

Just like in Straight, Pathway has found a sympathertic Republican in Porter County Council member William Carmichael who has suggested using unallocated county income tax funds to build a Pathway faciltiy. And just like at Straight they've got a judge listening. Porter County Circuit Court Judge Mary Harper has stated that, "Pathway is a solid program." She has said she would support using $225,000 in unused funds for Pathway. Those unused funds had been set aside for housing expenses for juveniles ordered to the state correctional system. But county council president Dan Whitten, a Democrat, says he wants more information about Pathway.

Our report is based upon a story from The Chesterton Tribune by VICKI URBANIK. We urge our readers to contact the editor and Vicki Urbanik and tell them about the Straight model.
