  1. Past hour
  2. Well, Evan, we have a lot of that in this field do we not. In fact, I think it was designed that way. The Torbitt Document was the granddad of it all. It named almost every possible conspiratorial angel there was, except many Madam Nhu. But if you can believe it I actually followed some guy who said that on Coast to Coast one night. The idea was to confuse, to muddy the waters to obfuscate. At the same time the MSM pounded him the idea of No Conspiracy.
  3. The above was one of my pop's favorite statements. He raised me to be a majority of one and I'll always appreciated that. One of the problems with the JFK Assassination is that we fall in love with a theory that resonates within us and we often fall in love with our own words. My group of suspects has shrunk dramatically over 50 years and I'm personally convinced that some of the perps were part of JM Wave. But ask me after I have had a chance to plow thru the recently released files and it could change simply because I'm not trying massage my ego or form a fan club.
  4. Joe, I attended USC before spending two years as a Mormon Missionary. My roommate was older than me and attending Pharmacy School. He knew all sorts of people from the film industry-cameraman and stunt men. One who had worked with several of the big name directors was extremely critical of all of them as human beings except for Cecil B. DeMille.
  5. Today
  6. Yes, Joe, and the Mueller Report reprints an email to Trump's attorney Michael Cohen from a Russian "businessman" that the bedroom tapes of Trump being compromised in Moscow exist. So our president is being blackmailed by Putin.
  7. Doug, this explains Barbara Walters speaking for Roy Cohn. Her father Lou Walters got out of some legal troubles through Roy Cohn's connections. Cafe de Paris[edit] Lou Walters sold his share of the Latin Quarter chain to Loew in 1956 for $500,000.[5][11] He was convinced that he could recreate his success with a new chain of clubs called Cafe de Paris.[5] He opened the first in Miami in 1957. A combination of poor national economy and unusually frigid Miami winter resulted in a sharp decline in the number of tourists who visited Miami that year. The Miami club failed to attract enough visitors and closed after its first season.[11] A second version of the Cafe de Paris opened in New York in May 1958, in the former Arcadia Ballroom. It was the largest nightclub in New York, able to seat twelve hundred people.[11] Both of the Cafe de Paris locations were very close to the existing Latin Quarter nightclubs. Loew won an injunction that prevented Walters from advertising his ownership of either of the Cafe de Paris nightclubs.[12] Although opening week was successful, the club was too large, and the rent too high, for Walters to cover his expenses. Facing bankruptcy, Walters attempted suicide in June 1958.[13] His family covered this up, convincing the press that Walters had only had a heart attack.[14][5] Following his release from the hospital, Walters moved his family back to Miami. All of their assets in New York were seized to pay creditors.[15] Walters was also sued by New York for failing to pay income or payroll taxes while he operated the Cafe de Paris. The court case lasted two years, and Walters began missing court appearances, claiming he did not have the funds to travel to New York. A judge issued a warrant for his arrest. According to the memoir of Walters' daughter Barbara, she contacted her friend, powerful attorney Roy Cohn, to let him know about the charges, and within a week the charges were dropped and the case was settled.[16]
  8. Andrej, I’m trying to figure out how to answer your question without starting a flame war with the PrayerMan people. But, if you go to that website and start examining the pictures, you should find one on the front steps identifying in red letters “Pauline Sanders” and “Sarah Stanton.” (I have no idea if that is really them because the images are far too fuzzy, at least in my opinion.) To be honest, I think PrayerMan is Sarah Stanton. The still photo I'm talking about is a capture from the Darnell film clip. But whoever is Sarah Stanton, the photo appears to have been taken after the shots, because you can see people walking up into the building. Can you prove that Sarah Stanton went into the building as early as you say she did?
  9. One of the critics I most admire, David Walsh of the World Socialist Web Site, did massive preparation for his thoughtful and gratifying April 24 review of my 2018 book HOW DID LUBITSCH DO IT? and his accompanying interview with me about that book and my new book, FRANKLY: UNMASKING FRANK CAPRA. https://www.wsws.org/en/articles/2019/04/24/lubi-a24.html https://www.wsws.org/en/articles/2019/04/24/inte-a24.html
  10. The 1946 Orwell essay "Politics and the English Language" is essential reading to understand today's world, as is NINETEEN EIGHTY-FOUR. http://www.orwell.ru/library/essays/politics/english/e_polit/
  11. Ray, I am going to treat your questions as if they are legitimate. Electronic flash attachments for cameras were invented in 1931. They didn't come into common usage until the late 1950's. Electronic flashes work off batteries so there is no additional cost for each flash or flash cube you use. And, I suppose since a flash is fairly harmless in sunlight that people just leave the flash on and working. That's is what I use to do. Why photograph the rest of the motorcade if the President has already passed through? Well, something else might happen. Maybe the original assignment was to photograph the entire parade. Maybe Oswald / Prayer Man was assigned to be out of the building while the other Oswald was operating inside the building. That way there would be no confusion of two Oswalds running into each other. We need to remember a Marine is a combat trained soldier. When shooting occurred I would assume a combat trained individual would seek cover and concealment. That appears to be what Oswald / Prayer Man did. With shooting going east and west the safest place would be in the shelter of the doorway of the TSBD where one could not be seen from the Grassy Knoll or the Dal-Tex building. It would be the perfect cover and concealment for shooting going up and down Elm Street. A question you might ask is where did the camera go if Prayer Man has a camera? That is open to speculation. I really believe he brought a camera instead of curtain rods to the TSBD that morning. It was none of Buell Frazier's business so he was told curtain rods. A camera and a two handed camera holder would be about a foot or more in length. Just what you would put into a standard 18 inch grocery bag of that era. Frazier described the bag as 22 to 24 inches. Close enough in size to an eighteen inch bag to be see as about 2 feet. So, if Prayer Man really had a camera then what happened to it and more important what happened to the photos? If you really want to listen to an entirely different account of the assassination listen to Pierce Allman:
  12. Part 3 of my review of Newman's book looks at Veciana's "lost" testimony, Veciana and the Army and Zabala's Revelation. http://wtracyparnell.blogspot.com/2019/04/into-storm-part-3.html
  13. Now, do you want to explain about the wrong interpretations Paul? Why and how were they arrived at?
  14. This is a really interesting piece which tells us about Felix Sater, the guy Josh marshall has tried to build up as Putin's right hand man. When in fact, he is a double agent. IMO, its gotten to the point now, that with Sater, Mifsud, Stefan and the phony Putin niece, someone was setting a trap. It was the Brits working with the FBI. It ended up being quite successful. Due to the usual stupidity of the MSM> https://consortiumnews.com/2019/04/24/special-counsel-mueller-disingenuous-and-dishonest/
  15. Why did Blevins photoshopped the photo? Someone here said he was a "good guy".
  16. There is too much detail in the Oswald version. imo Take the original non-detailed version and apply "image-adjustment-variation" using Photoshop. (Pick whatever variation looks good to you.) Notice the difference in detail among the "original and variation" versions versus the Oswald version.
  17. "Every wonder why your Oswald in the window has no body - and the windows are disgustingly dirty... Let me show you something Lewis..." I never said it was Oswald. All i said was that the Dallas photo does appear to have the shape of a head....I'm not agreeing it is actually a person. Yes the dirt and marks probably make that shape...and as you say people see what they want to say. My point was that the original photo of this thread is definately photoshopped. I made the LBJ in the window image to show how easy it is.
  18. Every wonder why your Oswald in the window has no body - and the windows are disgustingly dirty... Let me show you something Lewis... I did this to show that most any random set of light and shadows can be made to look like something is there when it isn't.. Case in Point: Kneeling bush boy. Now we both know there was no one kneeling at that spot in the Moorman image... or any other image for that matter... But if you knew no better, you could argue that this was a real person.... it's not. And then there is the non-existent "Badgeman-woman-child" which is simply the sky, leaves and sunlight. But that man in the hat to the west WAS real and right where the footprints in the mud and on the bumper were found.... FWIW Between the dirt, artifacts and generations of images... conclusions are virtually pointless.... There is a pile of evidence that there were 2 men on the 6th floor up to and thru the assassination.... one in a white t-shirt, the other in a brown sport coat and horn-rimmed glasses.... both were seen leaving the TSBD... So maybe instead of p!$$!ng into the wind on this one... dig a little deeper into what actually happened from 12:30 - 1pm... You'd be amazed at the extent of the lying from Shelley, Lovelady, Piper, Truly... I beg to differ Keyvan... as I showed above... random patterns can be made to be almost anything... and once seen - it becomes virtually impossible to UN-see it that way. Where is the man's body? Why do you not take any of the artifacts and dirt into account as you "see" Oswald... Could it be someone else? Maybe the T-shirt man from the WEST Window? Below left corner is what a person in a window looks like: Head, Body, Legs, Arms.... I've always found David Healy to be extremely reliable when it comes to what could and couldn't be done with film.... then again we ain't gonna learn what we don't wanna know DJ
  19. Jim: would you please show Sarah Stanton standing outside the building in the eastern part of the building. I am familiar with all possible video clips and photographs, however, none showed Sarah Stanton. None could show because she entered the building in the first batch of people returning to the building and used the front elevator. Inspector Sawyer came in later. So, the elevator was not parked on the fourth floor during the shooting - it was on the first floor waiting to be used.
  20. Second Floor Hoax Officer Baker, Supt. Roy Truly, and Lee Harvey Oswald never met in the 2nd floor breakroom 60 seconds or 90 seconds after the shooting of President Kennedy. This alleged event never occurred. It is a hoax. It is a hoax for the following reasons: The WC reenactment with Officer Baker says that the least amount of time Baker and Truly could have made it to the second floor breakroom is 90 seconds. My calculation of events is close to that but, greater than 60 seconds by 24 seconds. Capt. Will Fritz’s notes say Oswald said he was outside watching the parade with Bill Shelley. FBI agent James Hosty’s notes say Oswald was outside watching the P. Parade. The Dave Weigman film shows Prayer Man / Lee Harvey Oswald on the steps of the TSBD as the film opens. And, that is about 13-15 seconds after the shooting of President Kennedy ceased. The Couch / Darnell films shows Officer Baker approaching the TSBD about 2 seconds into the film making a estimated 4 second run to the TSBD doorway. He has to pass Prayer Man / Lee Harvey Oswald who is standing in the doorway. This is about 30 seconds after the shooting. Pierce Allman, located at the SW corner of Houston and Elm, said after the shooting was over he ran across the street and talked to Lee Harvey Oswald. This puts Oswald outside the building when the President was shot. Los Angeles Times Witnesses to the JFK assassination: Three Dallas stories By By Molly Hennessy-Fiske Nov 17, 2013 | 6:00 AM “Pierce Allman ran to the Texas School Book Depository, seen behind him, in search of a phone and briefly exchanged words with a stranger — who he later learned was Lee Harvey Oswald.” From Jim Hargrove comes this information Officer Baker said he stopped a man on the 4th floor and this was repeated by Det. Marvin Johnson who said “Johnson wrote: "Patrolman Baker was in the Homicide Bureau giving an affidavit and Oswald was brought into the room to talk to some Secret Service men. When Baker saw Oswald he stated, 'that is the man I stopped on the 4th floor of the School Book Depository.'" I have never heard the Det. Johnson statement before. Paul Jollife said, ““Further, the suspect description provided by Baker does not really fit our "Oswald" - 30 years old? 165 pounds? "Oswald" was sitting right next to him!” This indicates that the man he saw on the 4th floor may not have been Harvey Oswald but, his double Lee Oswald. In first day testimony there is no mention of a second-floor breakroom encounter. This comes the next day as the cover-up story facts are adjusted to fit the story of the assassination as being told on the second day. The story changes the next day and what Baker said about a fourth-floor encounter with a worker identified by Roy Truly is forgotten and not brought up again by the authorities. It is replaced with the second-floor encounter. There are a couple of interesting photos in the .pdf file Death Of The Lunchroom Hoax. These photos fit my bias on what Prayer Man was doing that afternoon. He was taking pictures of the Presidential Parade with a camera he brought that morning from Irving, Tx. You can see the camera flash. Particularly well, in the photo proclaiming Prayer Woman by Chris Davidson. Get someone with a coke into a shadowed area of deep shadows and see if you can take a photo of a 6 ½ ounce coke bottle producing this much illumination from sunshine or the lack of in this case. Davidson’s effort has enough resolution so that one can actually see a camera.
  21. Andrej, Look at the film clips of people entering the TSBD several minutes after the shots were fired. There is Sarah Stanton and her friend standing side by side on the east side of the steps. Geneva Hine said that after hurrying to the adjoining offices on the first floor (John says it’s about a 40 foot walk), she returned to her office and found the lights had been turned back on. We don’t know how long she was away from her office, but I doubt it was much longer than a minute or two. The men on the sixth floor just had to get into the elevator car, and then they needed the electricity turned back on so they could proceed down to the second floor, where, according to John’s theory, the white-shirted Oswald got off. Not sure whether it was Sarah Stanton or Inspector Sawyer who were first to use the passenger elevator after the shooting. Remember that Sawyer said when the elevator door opened, a man got off as Sawyer was getting on. John believes this was the man in the brown jacket who had been on the sixth floor and probably walked past Shelley and Lovelady as he exited the rear of the building to eventually get into the Nash Rambler when it was on Record St. (The same car that soon picked up the white-shirted Oswald). According to John’s analysis, the electricity to all or parts of the building (including the elevators) was turned off and back on twice: once during the hit, and again a few minutes later.
  22. Jim, I'm not sure if you're aware, or if I've mentioned this before, but I've already read all of that, and understand it. Nevertheless (one last time), NAA/CBLA cannot be described as junk science, simply because you (and others) don't understand it. Furthermore, you know nothing about the scientific process. That is patently obvious. The key phrase is highlighted below. "Although it has since been abandoned because the results of the technique have been wrongly interpreted in legal cases and have led to wrongful convictions." What was this thread supposed to about again? Before Jim went off on his tangent about CBLA (that tends to happen on the rare occasions that I bother to post here).
  23. Heres the Dallas website photo and the enhanced one together. The Dallas one does appear to have the shape of a head, but the other has definitely been messed with...making the shape of a head look like Oswalds.
