III. The Team

Jeff Worcester

President • Co-Founder • Lifetime Director


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, 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. 

Richard Bartholomew

Vice-President • Co-Founder • Lifetime Director


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

Bartholomew's investigative work has been more in the tradition of a self-taught Sherlock Holmes than a professional Inspector Lestrade.


His 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.

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.

Randolph Benson

Secretary • Co-Founder • Lifetime Director


Randolph Benson's work has garnered numerous awards, most notably an Academy Award for Best Student Documentary at the Academy of Motion Picture Arts and Sciences’ Academy Awards.

Fourteen years in the making, The Searchers - A Portrait of Researchers of the Assassination of President John F. Kennedy uses never before seen interviews, archival footage, and recently declassified documents to chronicle the past and present research efforts of these ordinary citizens and their contributions to revealing the truth about the greatest crime of the 20th century.

Suffering ridicule and being labeled with the intellectual scarlet letter of "conspiracy theorists", these individuals have challenged the institutions of power for over 50 years. They have fought against great odds to, as they often proclaim, "take back our history"!
