President Botha, it was instantly understood by both of us that Mr. Worthington knew the
origins of the Mulroney Government (which came to power in September, 1984)'s South Africa and
Latin America policies--despite their common conservative bonds, so different from policies in
these fields by the Reagan Administration--because of what i'd explained in those disclosures
to him and the press in 1981-82.
He explained to me that presently he is editor of Canada's Influence magazine and also a regular contributor to Reader's Digest and Canada's Financial Post.
British Columbia Premier William Vander Zalm's controversial stand on building cheap housing for South African blacks (expressed first in late 1986 and leading me to send him a second submission about it that included a copy of Desmond Tutu's 29 August 1986 letter to me) arose in our discussion, and i showed my journalist friend that i had received a letter from Archbishop Tutu and also the one from Premier Vander Zalm that i now provide you with a copy of for the first time.
As a journalist, he said he was impressed that the Premier had taken that much time to write a reply because he said that from his experience with politicians, such efforts by them were rare.
He asked me for copies of my letters to Premier Vander Zalm and the one from him--it was understood that it would be only fair to "update" his understanding of my "International Diplomatic Work...on a direct basis" so he could re-evaluate what "actions" he might choose to take now--and i promised to send them to him, along with copies of my statements to Desmond Tutu and Glenn Babb.
I've since sent this Canadian journalist a statement, President Botha, but didn't provide him
yet with the promised document copies because of certain circumstances continuing to restrict
my financial capabilities and because i actually purchased two different editions of Influence
and was given pause by how critical the magazine's editorial policy is on the Mulroney
Government's sanctions policy.
I assume you are aware of this because the magazine's February/March, 1987 edition published a lengthy interview with Glenn Babb.
President Botha, this finally brings us to the main reason why i'm now writing you--aside from the fact that i'd like my Christmas registered letter to get to my friend Desmond Tutu and a request to you that i'll clarify before completing this statement.
The next attachment here was included in my December 4, 1987 submission to Prime Minister Mulroney and CANADIAN INTERNATIONAL TRADE MINISTER Carney, annotated here as in that case.
The contents of it and this statement to you are a matter for the international business
Therefore, as in the case of my June 20, 1986 statement to Glenn Babb (as i advised him), this statement to you should be regarded as an "open letter."
Accordingly, on the same date as i'm sending this to you, i'm duplicating its contents for a registered letter to John J. Phelan, Jr., CHAIRMAN OF THE NEW YORK STOCK EXCHANGE, and will follow that by equivalents before Christmas to Mr. S.J. Hudson and Mr. J.R. Bunting of the Vancouver and Toronto stock exchanges respectively.
And soon i will finally prepare the "summary statement" for former "International Bank for Reconstruction and Development" President Robert McNamara which i promised him in my 1978 statement to him that outlined all aspects of my "International Diplomatic Work...on a direct basis" and its objectives. (As you may already realize, i then advised him that President Carter had indicated to me that the "leave of absence" i was requesting would not be granted by him if he determined any "loose ends" in my work at that time and had any recommendations he cared to offer that would require additional work by me...The 1978 work was this thorough because he didn't express any objections or recommendations.)
I'm hoping that by putting copies of Ms. Carney's November 12, 1987 letter to me at the fronts
of these submissions and adding the brief note to you on the List of Contents for this
submission to you, these distinguished economic experts won't be discouraged by the substantive
composition of them and refrain from reading them through.
-OF COURSE I HAD TO PUT A SCAN OF THE DECEMBER 28, 1987 LETTER I RECEIVED FROM THE NEW YORK STOCK EXCHANGE'S CHAIRMAN AND CHIEF EXECUTIVE OFFICER, JOHN J. PHELAN, JR. AT MY AWARD-WINNING WEBSITE ONCE I HAD THE TIME AND MONEY TO DO IT.
DOING THESE ADDITIONS TO THE WEBSITE ARE NOT SIMPLE--AS RELATIVE EXPERTS ON COMPUTERS WOULD APPRECIATE. I EXPANDED THE MAXIMUM CAPACITY OF THE WEBSITE--AT MY OWN OUT-OF-POCKET EXPENSE--IN PART BECAUSE OF THIS. IF I DON'T REDUCE THE SCANS TO THE SMALLER GIF AND JPEG FILES, THEY SIMPLY WON'T FIT UNDER THE 15 MGS. WEBSITE SIZE LIMIT.
I DECIDED TO PUT A SCAN OF MR. PHELAN'S REPLY TO MY LETTER IN THE FORM SUBMITTED IN 1988 TO THEN-U.S. PRESIDENTIAL CANDIDATE REVEREND JESSE JACKSON BECAUSE IT ALSO ADDRESSES SEVERAL ISSUES THAT GOT MORE PUBLIC ATTENTION AT THAT TIME THAN, I THINK IN HINDSIGHT, ANY RIGHT-MINDED PERSON WOULD THINK THEY DESERVED.
AND, YES, I STILL WAKE UP EACH MORNING, TURN ON CNN AND AM, THUS, AWARE OF WHAT IS OCCUPYING A LOT OF TIME OF THOSE IN WASHINGTON THESE DAYS.
I'LL ALSO HAVE TO MAKE A SCAN OF ANOTHER ITEM RECEIVED FROM THE "JESSE JACKSON '88" CAMPAIGN
TEAM IN 1988 THAN THIS ONE HERE.
IN IT THEY REQUESTED A CAMPAIGN CONTRIBUTION FROM ME: THE RETURN ENVELOPE THEY ENCLOSED LISTED A NUMBER OF POTENTIAL CAMPAIGN CONTRIBUTIONS.
TO BE BLUNT, I'VE GOT NO TIME/RESPECT FOR THINKING LIKE PRESIDENT CLINTON'S--BEING EMBARRASSED BECAUSE HIS PEOPLE HAVE BEEN FIGHTING FOR YEARS. (HE SAID THIS IN SEPTEMBER, 1997...A FEW DAYS BEFORE THE BOMBING TRIAL OPENED IN NEW YORK CITY...AND THE WEEK BEFORE THE MCVEIGH STATEMENT ON AMERICA'S ONLY ROLE MODEL FOR HER CITIZENS. I HAVE BEEN ENVISIONING THE 'PRODUCTS' OF COMBINATIONS OF PEOPLE FOLLOWING THE EXAMPLE OF THAT REMARK, MATCHES, AND AMERICAN FLAGS SINCE THE MCVEIGH STATEMENT.)
I TOOK IT HE WAS REFERRING TO THE IRISH...HE BEING BORN IN THE UNITED STATES OF IRELAND?
AND I WILL HAVE MORE TO SAY ABOUT THIS WHEN I FIND A CERTAIN ARTICLE I HAVE WITH A DIFFERENT "VIEW" ON NATIONALITY/PATRIOTISM QUOTING NEW YORK MAYOR RUDY GUILIANI, COMPLETELY CONSISTENT WITH A LATER REMARK BY VICE PRESIDENT AL GORE...AND THE ORIGINAL WAY WE SET THIS UP--ON A BIPARTISAN BASIS--WHEN I DID THE 1978 "INTERNATIONAL DIPLOMATIC WORK...ON A DIRECT BASIS."
FOR NOW, THOUGH TO DATE I HAVEN'T INDICATED WITH PARTICULAR DETAIL THAT THE KEY THING I DID AS MR. WONG OF UNICEF" (SEE THE PREVIOUS PAGE OF THIS "PERHAPS ONLY HONEST SUMMARY OF MY 'INTERNATIONAL DIPLOMATIC WORK...ON A DIRECT BASIS' FOR THE WORLD'S CHILDREN") WAS WRITE IN 1978, AT THE TIME OF THE CAMP DAVID SUMMIT, ON BEHALF OF THEN-U.N. SECRETARY-GENERAL DR. KURT WALDHEIM, TO THE FOUR FORMER MEMBERS OF THE BEATLES TO SEE IF THEY'D DO A REUNION FOR THE NEXT YEAR'S U.N. 'YEAR OF THE CHILD'.
I DON'T THINK YOU HAVE TO BE, SAY, A RHODES SCHOLAR TO APPRECIATE HOW CAREFULLY PHRASED ALL THE PAPER WORK ABOUT THIS PROCESS HAD TO BE BECAUSE THERE WERE CERTAIN INDIVIDUALS AND PARTIES IN THE HOLY LANDS THEN DEMANDING "DEATH TO BEGIN," "DEATH TO SADAT," DEATH TO CARTER."
ANYTIME I DISCUSS THIS WITH PEOPLE I SIMPLY SAY: WHERE IS MY FRIEND ANWAR SADAT?
THERE'S ANOTHER CONTINUING NEWS STORY I SEE A LOT OF COVERAGE OF THESE DAYS. AS I'VE BEEN TRYING TO GET THIS WEBSITE SUBSTANTIVE ENOUGH THAT I CAN MAKE A SUBMISSION TO MY FRIEND DESMOND TUTU'S "TRUTH AND RECONCILIATION COMMISSION" WITHOUT FEAR THAT, SAY, CERTAIN INDIVIDUALS AND PARTIES IN THE HOLY LANDS WILL ACCUSE EITHER OR BOTH OF US OF SELLING OUT TO THE "GREAT SATAN" OR THE "FORCES OF ZION", I HAVEN'T YET MADE A SUBMISSION TO MY FRIEND THAT IS RELEVANT TO HIS PRESENT WORK.
ACTUALLY, I TRIED TO SEND HIM AN E-MAIL LAST YEAR TO ADVISE HIM TO EXPECT SUCH A SUBMISSION BUT THE E-MAIL ADDRESS THE SOUTH AFRICA HIGH COMMISSION IN OTTAWA GAVE ME FOR THIS PURPOSE DID NOT WORK. (A FOLLOW-UP PHONE DISCUSSION WITH THEM INDICATED THAT THEY WERE GIVEN THE WRONG INFORMATION BY THE RELEVANT AUTHORITY IN PRETORIA>.)
I ONLY MENTION THIS OTHER NEWS STORY--THOUGH I ALSO FEEL OUR LOSS OF HER SO YOUNG IN HER LIFE PERSONALLY--BECAUSE, IT'S WELL KNOWN, "THEY LOVE SYMBOLISM IN THE MIDDLE EAST."
I WAS THINKING THAT QUEEN ELIZABETH IS AROUSING A LOT OF CONTROVERSY BECAUSE OF PERCEPTIONS I AM, INDEED, "CANADIAN BORN AND BRED."
SO, TECHNICALLY, IF I AM FOLLOWING THE CORE OF THIS CAMPAIGN CONTRIBUTIONS SCANDAL CORRECTLY...
THE 1988 JESSE JACKSON CAMPAIGN ALSO MAY HAVE BEEN IN VIOLATION OF U.S. CAMPAIGN LAWS.
...I WONDER IF IT WOULD BE UNREASONABLE TO QUESTION WHETHER THIS IS GOING TO BE INVESTIGATED AS THOROUGHLY AS WAS "IRANGATE"?
