Gangster Jack Ruby

In 1947, Opium was sent “across” in small “cans” holding six ounces, these would be sold for $250.00 each. On July 5th it was announced that the Mexico crop of opium exceeded a record 32 tons or more near the U.S.Border. Although Mexican pilots flew south, few ventured north because of the risk transporting drugs by air even though the Custom and Naroctics Bureaus of the Treasury Department had no planes of their own in 1947. Starting scheduled flights into the U.S. would enable large profits to be made by those will to take the risks.

Money generated by the sale of drugs required laundering, and gambling was one way to do that. In November 1946, gangster Paul Roland Jones approached Sheriff Steve Guthrie of Dallas and promised him a starting salary of $150,000 a year if he allowed his friends from Chicago to bring slot machines and floating crap games into Dallas. Jones said that his boss Jack Ruby was in charge of this operation and that he was due to arrive in the spring of 1947. Guthrie said he would think it over and agreed to another meeting. However, Guthrie was an honest man and turned to the Texas Rangers for help.

Led by W. E. “Dub” Naylor, the Rangers made a secret tape recording of the second meeting between Jones and Guthrie. It took a month to gather enough evidence to arrest or drive out these gangsters. Among those arrested was Jack’s sister, Eva Ruby, the owner of a restaurant in Dallas and a partner in sending opium to Chicago. Victory over these mobsters was short-lived, for Jack Ruby arrived the following year and started various gambling enterprises around the city.

During this same period Jack Ruby was involved in counterintelligence. Officially, he was an aircraft mechanic in the Army Air Corps from May 1943 until February 1946 at various bases in the South. His brother Sam was also in the Air Corps as an informer, keeping an eye on communists and nazis and writing letters to his brother Jack about his observations. Although Sam wrote the letters as if they were to his brother, he actually addressed the envelopes to a counterintelligence officer.

On three separate occasions in about summer 1943, early 1944, and early 1947, Ruby went to a union hall in Muncie, Indiana to participate in meetings with communists. The union hall was on the third story of a three-story building, where gambling often happened during evenings and weekends. Ruby met with Russian Jews, some of whom were communists.

In 1947 Joe Campisi and his brother Sam Campisi bought the Idle Hour Bar in Dallas. This was the year the Campisis first met Ruby.

Additionally, Ruby was an informer for the FBN (Federal Bureau of Narcotics). After the shooting of Oswald, Mort Benjamin, an FBN agent in New York, found a file showing that Ruby had been an informer since the 1940s. When Benjamin returned to read the file again, it was missing. Apparently, someone had taken every document related to the FBN’s relationship with Ruby and destroyed it.

Ruby’s work as an informer is comparable to that of an employee at the TSBD (Texas School Book Depository). Joe Molina, credit manager for the TSBD since February 1947, knew Bill Lowery, an undercover agent for the FBI. In 1955 Molina and Lowery became interested in a leftist group called the American GI Forum, an organization that had the goal of fighting injustices perpetrated against people of Mexican descent. Molina and Lowery were among six individuals who formed the Dallas chapter of the GI Forum. The following year Lowery nominated Molina as chairman.

In testimony given at a hearing of the Subversive Activities Control Board in 1963, Lowery admitted he was an FBI informant infiltrating the GI Forum. By implication his friend Molina was an informant too. The Dallas police became interested in Molina after the assassination and investigated him as a suspect. They publicized his connections to alleged communists, and as a result Molina lost his job at the TSBD. If Molina was an undercover agent, then he was one of four such operatives in one location. The other three were Shelley, Bergin, and Oswald.

Shortly after Castro came to power on January 1, 1959, Jack Ruby contacted gun-smuggler Robert McKeown and told him that he was “in with the Mafia and had a whole lot of jeeps he wanted to get to Castro.” Ruby also wanted advice on how he could gain the release of a couple of friends imprisoned in Cuba. The deal fell through when McKeown demanded an advance payment of $5,000. During the period of 1958 through 1959, Ruby was heavily involved in smuggling arms to Castro’s forces. He also met with the FBI nine times over the course of the year 1959, presumably to talk about his travels to Cuba.

Jack Ruby operated on a parallel track with the TSBD schoolbook people. Like Joe Molina, Ruby was infiltrating leftist or communist cells. Ruby promoted the ultraconservative ideology, mainly by getting people to read the literature of Dallas oil man H. L. Hunt (WHO IS DEFINITELY A CO-CONSPIRATOR IN THE ASSASSINATION OF JFK).

If anybody doubts these guys were not all connected in one big mobbed-up network consider the following:
An associate of Jack Ruby was Lewis McWillie who was once employed as manager of Benny Binion’s “The Horseshoe” Dallas casino, in the 1940’s, and as manager of the Tropicana Casino in Havana, Cuba, in the 1950’s, owned by Jake and Meyer Lansky; Frank Sturgis was the government overseer at the Tropicana at the time of Lewis McWillie’s employment.

The contract murder of Judge Wood, by Charles hit-man Harrelson, was put out by Jimmy Chagra who had been convicted and sentenced by Judge Wood. Charles Harrelson first met Jimmy Chagra in Benny Binion’s Horseshoe Casino. An investigation into Binion, by the FBI in 1963, states that there was one member of the Binion drug ring in El Paso, Texas which is where Chagra was from and definitely implicates Binion in the murder of Judge Wood, thus linking Binion with Harrelson.

Sheriff Steve Guthrie, of the Dallas Police, once said, “We all know Bill Decker is a payoff man with Benny Binion.” Decker was sitting in the lead car of the motorcade when President Kennedy was assassinated and was also involved in the transfer of Oswald from the police station to the county jail where he was shot by Ruby who mysteriously was let in or entered the building. Sheriff Bill Decker was also known to have been friends with Russell Douglas Mathews and Joe Campisi, who was involved in organized crime and testified at Charles Harrelson’s trial. So, Charles Harrelson was involved, either directly or indirectly, with Jack Ruby, Lewis McWillie, Russell Mathews, Benny Binion, Joe Campisi and Sheriff Bill Decker.

I just noticed tonight that looks like Jack Ruby’s friend Benny Binion in the background when Mac Wallace was getting off with probation for first-degree murder; connecting Jack Ruby with Mac Wallace.
