Why Johnny Can't Come Home :Intro Episode 1

ABOUT THIS EPISODE

What do various FBI agents, a retired NYC police detective and the mother of the first abducted child to appear on a milk carton have in common? They all strongly believe that a man using a fake name and posing as a White House journalist might actually be the missing Johnny Gosch.


Over the course of the next few episodes, the mysterious case of Johnny Gosch will lead us on a twisting journey through the seedy underbelly of America. Far from being just an isolated missing child case, this story has tentacles that creep from the lowest depths of human wickedness to possibly the highest office in the land.

Milk cartons with pictures of missing children have become commonplace, but the very first boy ever to be placed on a milk carton is still missing. His name is Johnny Gosh. If you're old enough, you may find yourself sometimes feeling nostalgic for the s. It was, after all, an optimistic time in a cutthrow kind of way. It was a decade that was filled with materialism and consumerism, and a decade that brought us blockbuster movies and also the birth of Cable and MTV in one thousand nine hundred and eighty five. But there is a darker side, and one that we try hard to forget. Sometimes, missing children were a painful in a threatening problem. In the S, with a growing sense of alarm, Americans began to see pictures of their missing children pop up everywhere. They were on milk cartons and grocery bags, they appeared on billboards and TV commercials. It's very necessary that we get the messy guy so that their child doesn't end up on a button like our scientist. And as the Times changed, the rules about kidnappings changed. There were no more ransom demands, parents didn't receive phone calls from the kidnappers. There is ...

...no instructions to the parents in most of these cases, and the police, they weren't really listening in anymore. We now had new and horrifying twist to face. Fears of sexual abuse and sadistic impulses, not money. These were the new motives and because of these new rules, parents would now feel vulnerable to a crime that generation ago was only really a concern in the homes of the wealthy. But what it changed? Was it the satanic panic or was something else causing this shift? Over the course of the next few episodes, we're going to be going over the mysterious case of Johnny Gosh and believe me, this is a fascinating case. This has everything in it, implications they go all the way to the White House. We're going to be looking at the finders go. We're going to be looking at the Franklin Credit Union scandal. We're going to be looking at high ranking military member that was involved in not only MK Ultro but also founded a satanic temple called the temple of set.

But as you see over the course of these episodes that this case creeps and it has so many ties to so many powerful people that you're going to be asking yourself what happened to Johnny Gosh. Could Johnny Gosh still be alive even after being missing for over thirty years? is He using a different name? Is He in hiding and why? Look what would lead to that. So those are some of the things I want to be covering this episode. Let's just dive into it from deep within our abandoned feme of bunker studio. It's invisible ships. Johnny Goosh went missing on September five of one thousand nine hundred and eighty two, and that was the last time that anyone had ever seen him. There had been no new developments in this case for years, until, strangely, two thousand and five, at all places, the White House. There is another controversy brewing tonight. This one involves the Bush administration and the news media. It is the talk of Washington these days. It...

...involves a man who was a regular in the White House press briefing room. He was free to ask President Bush and his press secretary questions on a regular basis. But it turns out he wasn't really a journalist and wasn't using his real name, and there is more to his past that is making a lot of people wonder what he was doing in the White House in the first place. Okay, okay, okay, stop. You're probably wondering what any of this has to do with the disappearance of Johnny Gosh. Here's what we're talking about. That last clip is referring to a strange press conference I happened back in two thousand and six. It's where a man from an obscure right wing news outfit was posing as a journalist and he started pitching these real softball questions to the president, and in the process he got a lot of people curious about who he was and where he came from. Here's what he asked the president, and it's a question that's so friendly and so ideologically leading that the rest of the press court was left stunned. said it to Democratic leaders have...

...painted a very Greek picture of the US economy. How are you going to work? You've said you're going to reach out to these people. How are you going to work with people who seem to have divorced themselves from reality? What? Who is this guy? Well, after a few days of digging into this man's background by members of the media and online bloggers, all kinds of weird things began to turn up and ended up raising even more questions. Do you think the White House thought it had a tiny scandal on its hands, a storm and a teapot, over the granting of credentials to a writer from an unknown news organization operated by Texas Republican politician, a pseudo reporter who asked questions of the president and press secretary so softball in nature that they embarrassed even arch conservatives. Turns out that was the good news. For one thing, he was using a fake name. Okay, he was called himself Jeff Gannon, but his real name seemed to be maybe James Dale Guckhard, and there's a lot of controversy there. I mean a lot of people aren't sure...

...if James Dale Guckar does even his real name, but the following episode we're going to be referring to him as Gannon or Jeff Gannon, just for the sake of simplicity, because he does go under a lot of names anyway. It seemed really hard to believe that, in this post nundred and eleven world that we were living in, that somebody using a fake name could pass background checks and even be given regular access to the White House, even up to the president. And speaking of his credentials, well, it turns out that Gannon is not even a journalist at all. We know that he never obtained a congressional press pass, which is what you need to be allowed to cover the White House press briefings. Okay, it is this the inderpass that journalists must have to cover events at the White House. Having covered the whitehouse for as long as I did, how he got I just don't get it. How he got a press pass? Yeah, on a on a false name, on an alien I don't know how that happened. Yeah, that you...

...have to be cleared through the secret service in order to get a press pass, which have to wear at all time. I mean, there's something behind the story that hasn't come out, but somehow Gannon got in and he kept getting it somebody from the White House staff which just wave Gianon on in, and so he'd been there multiple times. And then the pictures came out, and buy pictures, I mean a lot of sexually explicit photos of Jeff Gannon, because it turns out that Gannon is not a journalist, but he is a former gay prostitute and he used to call himself bulldog. He offered his services to Washington's elite. Getting used to advertise himself as like this buff military type with the high and tight crew cut. He was the perfect date for the closeting conservatives who ran Washington in those days. Gannon even worked as a model and it was appearing in some homosexual pornography under the name hot military stud. So this was all really beginning to look weird, in kind of like a conspiracy Jeff Gannon's name. The name Gannon would come up in the Valery...

Plain CIA league, which was a big political scandal that revolved around a journalist name Robert Novak, and he publicly identified Valori plane as a covert Central Intelligence Agency officer, blowing her cover just before the Iraq war. So is Jeff Gannon a spy? Does he have ties to like the CIA or whatever? I mean a lot of people think you might have in fad. You have to admit that there is something going on that we can't explain. We cannot explain the amount of access to this guy had or how he's able to utilize fake name and get through all that stuff, skip all the steps with secret service. Anyway, just when you think you hear it all, all the weird stuff about the prostitution in his pornography and all that, the story is going to take another turn, is going to get even weirder, because there are a lot of people, a lot of people, that think that Jeff Gannon may actually be Johnny Gosh. And these are these people aren't just a bunch of online conspiracy theorists or youtubers or podcasters, but even people like a retired New York City police detective, some members of the FBI forensics unit and...

...even Johnny guys's own mother are wondering if Jeff Gannon may actually be that missing boy, Johnny Gosh, and they do have some good reasons for wondering. That's for one thing. They both share a lot of the same facial features. In fact, they have a very similar facial bone structure, and these are exactly the type of characteristics that law enforcement is going to look at. If they don't have the person there to physically fingerprint or take DNA whatever, they'll look at photographs of, you know, whoever they're looking for in the suspect and they'll look at that and they'll try to match them up like based on their the height of where their ears are in those size or nose and stuff like that. So those people are saying that that's a real good match for Johnny Gosh. Johnny Gosh and Jeff Gannon also have the same colored eyes and they reportedly share some very similar birth marks. There's another interesting twist to all this too, in that you know, Jeff Cannon's alias names have always kept the same initials, JDG, which is the same initials as Johnny Gosh,...

...and we know that the name Gannon is an alias, it's a fake. Remember his, quote unquote, real name is James Dale Guker, or JDG. Same initials. That's interesting that the initials are the same, but it ultimately is also meaningless. You know you're not going to build a case on that. You're not going to convince anybody because the initials are the same. Another more interesting thing to do with the name is the fact that he chose that name. Remember, Gannon is an alias. That's a fake name. He is real name is, quote unquote, James Dale Gut right. So he chose that Gannon name as an alias and the editor of the paper for the den Wayne Register, which was the paper that Johnny delivered the newspaper for and he was actually kidnapped on his route. Well, the editor at the time of Johnny's kidnapping was a man named James P Gannett. So, you know, some people look at this is like, is this a bread chrome? Is this something that he's leaving, like a little signal who he actually is, or is it just another one of those coincidents? The million dollar question, though, is if Jeff Gannon was Johnny Gosh, why what...

...he just say? So, and that goes to the whole heart of what this case is about and who might be involved, because they're the more we look into this case, the more you're going to see that there are different groups, military, the cult CIA involvement or a lege involvement with this case and that one maybe would make it impossible for him to return home. So let's explore why Johnny can come home, and to do that we need to go to the very beginning, all the way back to one thousand nine hundred and eighty two, to the night before Johnny Gosh's disappearance. Okay, guys, that's it for this one. This is just kind of been the introduction to the Johnny Gotch case. Please join us for episode one. I'm going to be given some details about the actual aduction and then we're going to be moving on over the next couple weeks, talking about everything from the from a strange calt called the finders, to Mk ultra, and all this relates to this case. Like I said before, it goes all the way up to the White House. So please, I want you to join us and we're...

...going to go through this together. There's a lot to win back. That's why I had to do this intro, just to kind of give a basic outline to where we're going. Appreciate you joining us. Guys. Take care.
