Congressman Upshaw Caught Lying To Protect Roy E. Davis:

Researchers have sent us several newspaper articles on Roy E. Davis, many of which paint a much darker picture while filling in many gaps in the saga that resulted in creating a religious cult leader in Jeffersonville, Indiana.

After the Ku Klux Klan was exposed for being a terroristic organization intent on seizing control of the federal government, and the Indiana Klan was exposed as having taken control of the Indiana State Government, the Klan became a splintered, unorganized secret society forced into hiding. The Klan managed to stay alive by use of false identities across the nation. Charitable organizations, utilities, and religious organizations, and businesses of all sorts sprung up for the Klan to hide behind, and the federal government had no legal means to stop them -- laws were made to protect many of these groups.

Before William Branham was lifted into power by Roy E. Davis and former congressman William D. Upshaw, the two members of the original 1915 Klux Klan attempted to hide behind a children's orphanage in San Bernardino, California. To establish trust with the people in Los Angeles and San Bernardino, the two men began claiming that Roy Davis was an agent for the Federal Bureau of Investigation. Their story had an effect on Miss Elizabeth Ussher, and she donated thousands of dollars to their "children's orphanage."

But after she began to suspect that this "orphanage" was not what it seemed, she began contacting the real authorities. During the course of their investigation, she came to know that Davis was impersonating a federal officer, a felony crime in the United States. Initially, former Congressman Upshaw denied any statements claiming Davis was a federal agent. But there was just one problem:

Former Congressman Upshaw accidentally told an investigator for the Federal Bureau of Investigation that Roy E. Davis was a detective for the federal government.

The jurors sat and listened as Upshaw told of his and Davis' plot to persuade the people of San Bernardino by means of a series of evangelistic meetings in 1943. During these meetings, Davis claimed God had spoken to him through a vision of a "peach," and that vision told him to establish a children's orphanage.

After Upshaw denied his false claims about Davis being a federal agent, they also watched as Upshaw became noticeably upset after the prosecuting attorney had Upshaw identify for the record statements that he, himself made to an F. B. I. agent.

Shortly after this trial, Upshaw left the campaign trail claiming to be "sick," Davis sued many government officials for half a million dollars, and William Branham began his evangelistic campaigns.
