Jeff Worcester - CDPR President & Lifetime Director

President & Lifetime Director (Co-Founder)

Jeff Worcester is a veteran political, nonprofit, and public relations professional. Over the course of the last decade, he has led ​electoral and issue-based campaigns on behalf of worthy candidates and causes across the country. Previously, he served for ten years with distinction in the public safety sector.


As co-founder and president of the ​Center for Deep Political Research (CDPR)​, Worcester and his team have set out to establish a ​nonpartisan think tank that will ultimately serve as the premier venue for journalists, and citizen researchers alike, dedicated to the dissemination of existing and new research in counter-measure to official versions of Deep State-orchestrated events. Prior to 2016, he had largely been investigating these "deep events" on his own time, while his days were ironically spent working for some of the very elected officials whose Constitutional authority had been subverted by the U.S. military and intelligence complex for well over a half century.


In an April 2017 ​Conspirinormal podcast ​interview​, Worcester became the first known, most established member of either major political party to talk intelligibly about the existence of the genuine Deep State. After the taping, Worcester concluded that his on-the-record comments on these subjects were likely to cost him his career in professional politics:

"If you talk about the Deep State, you're in bed with [President] Trump, [Steve] Bannon, and the so-called 'Alt-Right' movement," he continued. "Sadly, many of my friends in the Democratic Party see the world in black and white, just like the establishment Republicans do. The nefarious networks lurking within America's unelected Deep State, however, operate in ever-changing shades of grey."

Worcester went on to say that he would continue to talk about the cabals, cliques, and machinations of the Deep State, regardless of the negative impact that doing so could have on his political career:

"As long as [the Deep State] lives on, carrying out its own criminal agendas and subverting our electoral processes, I will make sure the American people know about it," he said.

Since taking on a more public role with CDPR, Worcester has appeared on the ​Midnight Writer News Show,​ ​The Covert Report​, and ​Whistleblower Heroes​. He is currently working on his first book in the deep political realm, ​Analyzing Agents: Propagandists, Provocateurs, and Purveyors of Truth in the JFK Assassination Case.

Richard Bartholomew - CDPR Vice-President (1st) & Lifetime Director

Vice-President (1st) & Lifetime Director (Co-Founder)

Richard Bartholomew is an editorial cartoonist. His talent, education, training, and professional experience have been primarily in the visual arts. 


Bartholomew's historiography and criminal investigations of the JFK assassination were initially motivated by a civic duty to report a suspicious automobile fitting the description of a getaway car seen by several witnesses leaving Dealey Plaza in his hometown of Dallas. His investigative work has been more in the tradition of a self-taught Sherlock Holmes than a professional Inspector Lestrade.

Bartholomew's research of the JFK assassination includes his discovery of a 1959 Rambler station wagon possibly used in the conspiracy; a study co-authored with Walter F. Graf involving a rifle clip that contaminates the ballistic evidence; a chronological reconstruction and placement of missing movements edited out of the Zapruder film; an in-depth interview of Erwin Schwartz, with author Noel Twyman, regarding Mr. Schwartz's and Mr. Zapruder's early chain of possession of Zapruder's film; and work for author Barr McClellan resulting in Bartholomew's monograph establishing the methods by which the FBI and the Warren Commission concealed and obfuscated latent fingerprints from the alleged sniper's nest.

A collection of Bartholomew's writing, The Deep State in the Heart of Texas, will be published by Say Something Real Press in July of 2018. With no desire to make a profit off the broad daylight coup d'état that claimed the life of President John F. Kennedy, Bartholomew has graciously offered to donate any proceeds from the sale of his book to the Center for Deep Political Research, Inc.

Bartholomew's research has been presented at scholarly conferences, and published in books and journals on the JFK assassination. In two decades, his findings have had no serious, negative criticism in a field rife with such.


At the JFK Historical Group conference in Washington D.C. in 2018, Bartholomew explained why 54 years of revelations about the deep political forces who killed President Kennedy have failed to make a difference. He argued for a new methodology aimed at using the existing knowledge of those crimes against democracy to effectively stop the Deep State’s ability to continue its propaganda of official lies.

Randolph Benson - CDPR Secretary of Affairs & Lifetime Director

Secretary of Affairs & Lifetime Director (Co-Founder)

Randolph Benson is an award-winning filmmaker, and the founder of Critical Focus Pictures; a division of R Benson Film. A graduate of Wake Forest University and the North Carolina School of the Arts’ School of Filmmaking, he has been an instructor of film and video at the Center for Documentary Studies at Duke University for over a decade.

Benson's film Man and Dog  has appeared in film festivals worldwide and has garnered numerous awards, most notably a Gold Medal in the Academy of Motion Picture Arts and Sciences’ Student Academy Awards. His work has been featured on HBO, Bravo, the Independent Film Channel, numerous public television stations, Canal Plus–France, Telewizja Polska S.A.–Poland, and KBS-Korea. Previously, he received an Eastman Kodak Excellence in Filmmaking Award at the Cannes International Film Festival and a First Appearance Award at the International Documentary Film Festival Amsterdam


Benson's most recent film, The Searchers,  a feature documentary portrait of researchers of the JFK assassination, has screened at numerous film festivals and was awarded the Orson Welles Prize at the Tiburon International Film Festival. It was there that he would ultimately reflect on what the fourteen year project had meant to him; not just as a filmmaker, but as a kindred spirit in the battle for Truth:

"This film isn't about conspiracy theories, or political assassinations, or even necessarily the murder of JFK. The Searchers is a portrait of a group of individuals who have chosen to enter an area of study where they are marginalized and ridiculed for asking difficult questions. Why would anyone choose an area of study where the prospects of being dismissed as 'kooks' or 'tinfoil hats' is so great? Because, as they often say, 'if we don't, who will?'"

During his fourteen years filming, editing, and producing, The Searchers, Benson would forge friendships with legendary deep political researchers, like the late John Judge, that would forever change the way he viewed history. After spending countless hours observing, and discoursing with, these seekers of Truth, Benson eventually realized that he couldn't escape his own; that inescapable Truth was the he had become a Searcher  himself. In the years to follow: he would maintain these close ties to the JFK assassination research community, and go on to author a number of scholarly articles on the subject.
