    The Tippit Case in the New Millenium

    Here is important evidence on the "`15 minute block of floating time" used to disguise four key events involving Jerry Hill, Tippit and Oswald: Event 1: Assuming that video footage as reviewed by Hasan Yusuf is accurate that places Hill's arrival in Car 207 to the Book Depository as 12:51 - that gives him just four minutes to enter the building, march up to the seventh floor and search up there, work his way down to the 6th floor and "find the hulls". Event 2: See photo 180 by William Allen and photos 304 & 305 by Jim Murray. You can see that both Allen and Murray record police officer Jerry Hill as waving from the 6th floor window at 12:55, not 1:12 as claimed in the Warren Report. (Note that Luke Mooney and Jerry Hill share credit for finding the hulls - depending on who is testifying) Event 3: See Joe McBride's book for the evidence that Tippit was shot at 1:07 or even earlier, not 1:16 or later. Event 4: See John Armstrong's book for the evidence that Oswald arrived at the theater between 1:10-1:15, and was sitting next to Jack Davis as the credits ran no later than 1:20 - and that it was another person who entered the theater at 1:30 or later that caused the cashier to call the Dallas police.

    Steve Jaffe interview

    Quoting Terry Adams to ping him, if he has notifications on. Mr. Jaffe has replied to you, above.

    Maybe

    I was assigned to Detroit Homicide on two separate occasions. What does that me me an expert in? Canvassing neighborhoods because I must have knocked on a bazillion doors. My partner and I would start working a case with certain conclusions but when those proved not to be true we would shift directions and look for "new truth". We had Family Tree's at Homicide and I would inherit open case that were often committed before I joined the police department. Looking at these case with a fresh eye we often found that the cases were "investigated" with blinders on. Perhaps if we locked away our egos and were more careful with what we assumed was fact because it aligned with prior bias, we could actually solve this darn thing! Additionally, it is actually possible to disagree without being disagreeable!

    Steve Jaffe interview

    Terry: I tried to reach you by email to say that I hope I'm not too elderly. I can be reached fairly easily. There's a website under my business name with a phone number and email address. Thanks for your interest and kind words. I believe I'm the only member of Garrison's staff who gave an interview to the Sixth Floor Museum archives though that doesn't have much content. I've written a series of articles recently , published in what might not be regarded as the MSM, and am working on a book I'd like to think I can finish before I expire. Best, Steve J.

    Russell's question

    Hi David, many thanks for your excellent reply . You have reinforced my understanding of the troubling adjustment of the survey plat and the plausible but complex explanation of the reasons for it. I am convinced by the acoustic data, but not by D B Thomas's matching of the shots to the Zapruder film ( http://www.whokilledjfk.net/d_b_thomas_report.htm ) He uses the Film speed as 18.3 fps and you are challenging this. Are you able to use the acoustic evidence to assist in yours and Chris's analysis? I think the first thing you would have to address is your assertion that there was multiple shots fired at exactly the same time, since the acoustic evidence and analysis does not support that.

    Max Boot gets Booted on Lansdale in Vietnam

    Before this thread disappears under the weight of MH telling us we are a bunch of cultists who have accomplished zilch, let me conclude with what happened to Kennedy's overall foreign policy. As outlined elsewhere, LBJ and RMN made significant alterations to it in places like Indochina and the Middle East. And they both combined to put an end to the Alliance for Progress in Latin America. But in 1972, Nixon visited both Moscow and Bejing in what many thought to be an election year ploy to distract from his failure to end the Vietnam War. Nixon won the election handily, but the Watergate scandal forced him to resign. When Warren Commissioner Jerry Ford took office, he brought with him two young, relatively unknown rightwing firebrands named Rumsfeld and Cheney. They decided to do an end run around Kissinger. Why? Because they thought that the attempt at detente was too moderate. At the behest of a private group led by Paul Nitze, called the Committee on the Present Danger, they enlisted both the White House and CIA Director Bush to let their analysts go head to head with the CIA in order to demonstrate that the Russians were ahead of the USA in both conventional and atomic weapons. This was called Team B. This was important for not just putting the stall to any kind of detente, but more significantly, it was the beginning of the creation of the Neoconservative movement and the rise to power of men like Richard Perle. They did much to undermine Carter, and then seized power under Reagan. So we can say that Jerry Ford first buried the facts about the JFK case. A decade later he fostered the movement that spelled the end to Kennedy's foreign policy forever. And that is what brought us well paid charlatans like Max Boot. As Stephen Dedalus says in Ulysses, "History is a nightmare from which I am trying to awaken." For those who admired what Kennedy was trying to do, its probably even worse than that.

    https://www.economist.com/node/21628917/comments Why heroin has made a comeback in America <quote on, emphasis added> Malcolm Kyle Nov 24th 2014, 11:24 A VERY BRIEF HISTORY: * Shortly after World War II, the OSS (the predecessor of the CIA) formed a strategic alliance with the Sicilian and Corsican mafia. * During the 1950s, In order to provide covert funds to forces loyal to General Chiang Kai-Shek (they were fighting the Chinese communists under Mao Zedong), the CIA helped the Kuomintang (KMT) smuggle opium to Thailand from China and Burma. They even provided planes owned by one of their front businesses—Air America. * During the long years of the cold war, the CIA mounted major covert guerilla operations along the Soviet-Chinese border. In 1950, for their operation against communist China in northeastern Burma, and from 1965 to 1975 [during the Vietnam war] for their operation in northern Laos, the CIA recruited, as allies, people we now refer to as drug lords. * Throughout the 1980s, in Afghanistan, the CIA supported the Mujahedin rebels (in their efforts against the pro-Soviet government) by facilitating their opium smuggling operations. A small local trade in opium was turned into a major source of supply for the world's markets, including the United States. Thus Afghanistan become the largest supplier of illicit opium on the planet—a status only briefly interrupted when it was under Taliban control. * Again during the 1980s, the Reagan administration, using cocaine smuggling operations, funded a guerrilla force known as the Nicaraguan Contras—even after such funding was outlawed by Congress. An August 1996 series in the San Jose Mercury News by Pulitzer Prize­-winner Gary Webb clearly linked the origins of crack cocaine in California to the CIA and the Contras. Follow this link to an electronic briefing book compiled from declassified documents obtained by the National Security Archive. It includes the notebooks kept by NSC aide and Iran-Contra figure Oliver North, electronic mail messages written by high-ranking Reagan administration officials, memos detailing the contra war effort and FBI and DEA reports. The documents demonstrate official knowledge of drug operations, and also collaboration with, and protection of, known drug traffickers. Court and hearing transcripts are also included. http://www.gwu.edu/~nsarchiv/NSAEBB/NSAEBB2/nsaebb2.htm * In November 1996, a Miami grand jury indicted former Venezuelan anti-narcotics chief, and longtime-CIA asset, General Ramon Guillen Davila. He had been smuggling many tons of cocaine into the United States from a CIA owned Venezuelan warehouse. During his trial, Guillen claimed that all of his drug smuggling operations were approved by the CIA. * The Dirección Federal de Seguridad (DFS), a Mexican intelligence agency (spawned in 1947) was practically a creation of the CIA. DFS badges were handed out to top-level Mexican drug traffickers—thus giving them a virtual 'License to Traffic'. The Guadalajara Cartel (Mexico's most powerful drug-trafficking network in the early 1980s) prospered largely because it enjoyed the protection of the DFS, under its chief Miguel Nazar Haro, also a CIA asset. For far more detailed information kindly google any of the following: * The Big White Lie: The CIA and the Cocaine/Crack Epidemic by former DEA agent Michael Levine * Dark Alliance: The CIA, the Contras, and the Crack Cocaine Explosion by Pulitzer Prize–winning journalist Gary Webb * Whiteout: The CIA, Drugs and the Press by Alexander Cockburn and Jeffrey St. Clair * The Politics of Heroin: CIA Complicity in the Global Drug Trade by Alfred W. McCoy * The Underground Empire: Where Crime and Governments Embrace by James Mills * Compromised: Clinton, Bush and the CIA by Terry Reed, (a former Air Force Intelligence operative) and John Cummings (a former prize-winning investigative reporter at N.Y Newsday)

    Premillennialism and the Assassination

    I still remember the sign-off (or lead-in, whichever it was) "This is Garner Ted Armstrong." (The son, I guess, I don't remember if I heard the dad.) He sounded like such a nice and knowledgeable guy. Now I'm kind of curious as to what he looked like, to see if I can spot him in any Dealey Plaza photos. Especially at the corner of Houston and Main, which was Lookalike City.

    Interesting CIA interview with a Cuban exile.

    Not offhand. It would take a while to dig up the exact Sheehan lecture, but I’m sure at some point I posted it on a thread here. Maybe see what searching for Sheehan provides. I don’t think there’s any doubt when it comes to Nazar Haro being in league with cartels. Perhaps you have something to share. I know you follow CIA links with dope running.

    Premillennialism and the Assassination

    Today’s Jesus cults (Jefferson used that term in his day) as hypocritical as ever, turn a blind eye to perverse behaviors or violent actions, whether physical or otherwise, of their brethren, such as philandering politicians, mercenaries, doctor killers, whenever it suits their agenda.

    Wesley Liebeler on Chapter IV of the W.R.

    I think this first surfaced in David Lifton's Document Addenum to the Warren Report. I recall when I first read it thinking, Man these guys knew a lot of the problems with their work and they still defended it without reservations.

    That, my friend, is a great question. I'd love to see a legitimate answer.

    Premillennialism and the Assassination

    That enters into the discussion as well, if we're being honest. But would these same people not also turn a blind eye to "someone else" doing the actual murder, so that they could "devoutly" claim it was "God's will"?? Seems plausible to me.
  22. Ron Ecker

    Premillennialism and the Assassination

    You would think that Premillennialists (being such devout Christians) would have at least some regard for the ten commandments, such as "Thou shalt not kill."
  23. Mervyn Hagger

    What is the Kennedy Cult anyway?

    Michael, I do not find the commentary useful at all, but I do find Monty Python's 'Life of Brian' both funny and useful to describe what is going on here and consequently your own comment is a contradiction in and of itself since "it" refers to Monty Python. LOL
  24. Mark Knight

    Premillennialism and the Assassination

    I would theorize that Premillennialists who buy into the idea that a Catholic Church-led acceleration into "end-times" prophecies might have seen the JFK presidency as a "trial balloon," an effort to place the nominally Catholic Kennedy into a position of world power, to see if the Catholic Church-led United States of Europe, might be eventually viable. In fact, during the 1960 campaign the issue was raised more than once of a JFK presidency becoming a Papal government by proxy. To Premillennialists of this sort, then, the ending of the "Catholic government experiment" would become an urgent priority. Even though JFK denied over and over the idea that the Vatican would run his administration, a percentage of Americans (and others) were not convinced. In that respect, a look at the assassination through a Premillennialist lens MIGHT prove interesting. Does it have legs? Too early to tell.
  25. Michael Clark

    What is the Kennedy Cult anyway?

    But you find it useful as as a paradigm or fable. That is what is known as literary genius, but we know that such perception is not in your makeup.
  26. Mervyn Hagger

    What is the Kennedy Cult anyway?

    Paul, there are some good posts on this Forum which contain contemporary documented evidence, and I would like to find a site relating to LHO that is composed of the documented evidence (such as U.S. Passport stamps; etc., etc.) without all of the nah-nah-nah commentary that creates a factual biography. As Jason has correctly stated, 50 years of commentary has not resulted in any formal change in the official record. LHO still stands as the "lone nut assassin" sans conspiracy, with a later rider that maybe there was, but we don't know what it was. That is the official version. I am not interested in admiring theories about anything. If there is a site that presents a biographical account of LHO's life that is based upon such documentation, I would like to know where to find it. I support the ideals of the Mary Ferrell Foundation and similar entities, so if what I am looking for is on one of those sites I would appreciate knowing its exact location. I have no interest in the commentary which, unlike Monty Python's 'Life of Brian', I find boring. Mervyn
