  1. Past hour
  2. Thanks to Malcolm Blunt. Scans by me. The following two docs have annotations next to the draft document. https://drive.google.com/file/d/1vMO3Z6t32QeiyJu4SZOrsmoy10AVY4Xi/view?usp=sharing https://drive.google.com/file/d/1q68xfFyJurmrb-LgFyQzzCJtwjCMKqGE/view?usp=sharing And no doubt there is more once you start digging. https://drive.google.com/drive/folders/1VRW5qQuUKeU6Emw6w6oyMjOxKY7Qwtms?usp=sharing
  3. Wow! Most and probably all of the names above (except for John and Mary and Grace herself) are surely the brothers and sisters of Grace Blair (who became the wife of Emil Gardos). If any of these people lived in NYC, especially in Manhattan near 77th and Second Ave. around the time Emil and Grace lived there, we may well have found the anonymous caller! I'll start working on this tomorrow. Megathanks to all for some real research here!
  4. This should get you started. LBJ...1. Doubted the SBT. (Phone call with Russell) 2. Connected the assassination in his mind to Kennedy's actions in Vietnam and Cuba. (Various comments from 1963 to 1973). McCloy... 1. Doubted the SBT. (Notes on draft of Warren report) Russell... 1. Doubted the SBT. (Phone call with LBJ) 2. Expressed outrage when he realized no transcripts were created in which his doubts were recorded. (Numerous articles and statements by Weisberg.) Boggs... 1. Doubted the SBT. (Newspaper article?) Cooper... 1. Doubted the SBT. (HSCA testimony) Ford... 1. Suspected Oswald was under the influence of someone, but stressed that the WC couldn't find any evidence of just who this was.. (Numerous interviews and articles over the years, including, as I recall, his HSCA testimony...and the intro to a limited edition WR put out shortly before his death).
  5. DJ, According to Paul J, Tibor Kajan's "Circus Maximus" was published in 1962 in Berlin. Otherwise, you ask some fascinating questions. I'll try to do some digging tomorrow.
  6. The picket fence has been torn apart by tourists and then replaced many times since 1963. As far as the book store...when Gary Mack was still alive, and a member of this forum, people used to attack him and claim NO conspiracy books were allowed in the book store. So I made a point of writing down what books were available in the store every time I went there, and report back on this forum. It was true that the books were mostly LN books. But there was usually one or two "safe" conspiracy books, e.g. Real Answers by Gary Cornwell, included in the mix. I was there again on the 23rd but forgot to check this time, in part because the current curator, Steve Fagin, appears to be a bit more open-minded than Gary (to the point even of having Cyril Wecht speak at the Museum), and had in fact made an appearance at the CAPA conference the day before.
  7. Yesterday
  8. Last but not least.... https://drive.google.com/file/d/12_RY1gCeKH2beGqLSySuJNSugJlWIRvu/view?usp=sharing is a link to an article from MADISON WISC describing how LEE OSWALD, LIFEGUARD saves a child from drowning in 1961 while Harvey is in MINSK.
  9. A thought.... the address is much more Jewish than Hungarian... Ruby made a few comments along those lines... I wouldn't put too much stock in that address as being too meaningful.... Again... If Grace and Emil leave the country without John... who is AMALIA GARDOS living where Emil lived?
  10. Many thanks to everyone here for the advice. I visited Dealey Plaza today at high noon. It was almost surreal to observe Elm Street from the Grassy Knoll. Does anyone know if the wooden pickets on the old fence by the parking lot behind the concrete wall on the Knoll are the originals from 1963? The distances along Elm Street (from Houston Street to the overpass) were shorter than I imagined. BTW, I noticed that the museum book store across Houston Street from the TSBD was selling only false history books-- Case Closed, Reclaiming History, etc. Not a single copy of Rush to Judgment, Crossfire, Destiny Betrayed, or any of the good stuff. It was irritating. I resisted the urge to scold the store clerk for the terrible selection of JFKA "history" books offered to the local tourists.
  11. I'll do you one better, Jim: your latest book is my favorite book of all time, while Destiny Betrayed is up there, too: https://vincepalamara.com/my-top-25-plus-favorite-jfk-assassination-books-favorite-dvds-and-more/ It was correspondence with Doug Horne (and Dr. Aguilar) and James Douglass that set me straight. That was an embarrassing few months. My heart never left, but my head was all messed up haha
  12. The 1940 census for Ironwood, Gogebic Co, MI:GARDOS, Emil age 34 b. Hungary, occupation Pressman/Newspaperwife Grace age 29 b. WIson John age 1 b. MIThey listed their residence in 1935 as Manhattan, NY I should add that this is listed in genealogy.com under the FRED & NAOMI BLAIR entry
  13. Is it possible he had this book all along - that he never BOUGHT it but had it as a family heirloom? And what about AMALIA GARDOS? Could that be EMIL's sister taking care of JOHN when Grace and Emil leave? (It's Grace {Fred BLAIR's sister} Gardos btw, so AMALIA is still a mystery) EDIT: IS AMALIA Grace's middle name? Furthermore, the town where JOHN GARDOS was born in 1940, is literally on the Michigan/Wisconsin border... And finally, Fred BASSETT BLAIR's mother's FULL NAME was - Mary AMALIA/AMELIA BASSETT So Grace BLAIR marries Emil GARDOS yet we have an AMALIA GARDOS living at 217 E 86th - same address as Grace and Emil.... 217 E 86th and 325 E 92nd (Pic's apartment) are only blocks from each other with PS155 Yorkville Community School also just blocks away.... (Pic claimed that Lee went to a nearby school but did not like it - he seems to have been off by a street as PS155 is east of 1st on 88th.) Who, exactly, was AMALIA GARDOS? Mr. PIC - No, sir; my mother did. I think this is a public school in New York City located on about 89th, 90th Street between Third Avenue and Second Avenue. Lee didn't like this school. I didn't much blame him.
  14. It's a truly historic disgrace for the GOP, the Gas-lighting Old Party. They're all staying carefully on message with their false narratives -- i.e., that the articles of impeachment aren't based on clearly established evidence of Trump's extortion scam in the Ukraine, (and blatant obstruction of the Congressional inquiry) and that his impeachment is merely a partisan attempt to reverse the results of the 2016 election. The conduct of Trump and his GOP Goon Squad in Congress this week (and in the mainstream media) is simply nauseating-- unwatchable. My question. Why are so many people in this country willing to lie and enable Trump's sociopathic, blatantly illegal conduct? It's hard to believe that these are some of the same dishonest GOP goons who spent years "investigating" the Clintons-- including Kenneth Starr's five year, open-ended "White Water" investigation, Benghazi-gate, Email-gate, etc.-- and impeached Bill Clinton for trying to cover up details of a private, consensual sexual affair that had nothing to do with affairs of state! The best article I have read all year about the absurdity of the Trump GOP in 2019 was a piece published by Amanda Marcotte at Salon.com entitled, "How the GOP Trained Their Base To Ignore Trump's Criminality." It should be required reading in classrooms across the country. https://www.salon.com/2019/02/20/numb-to-corruption-how-republicans-trained-their-base-to-ignore-trumps-criminality/?curator=MediaREDEF
  15. This something Sandy fished out of ancestry.com some time back. Grace is 9. Fred Blair is going under the name of Caroll. She has about 5 sisters. Sandy was not able to find much of any thing on the siblings. Whoever the mysterious caller was, she would have to have known the Gardos prior to 1949-50. I have found nothing connecting the Gardos or Fred Blair to 77th Street and 2nd Avenue. Grace Blair in the 1920 United States Federal Census Name: Grace Blair Age: 9 Birth Year: abt 1911 Birthplace: Wisconsin Home in 1920: Fond du Lac Ward 8, Fond du Lac, Wisconsin Street: Street 52 Residence Date: 1920 Race: White Gender: Female Relation to Head of House: Daughter Marital status: Single Father's name: John A Blair Father's Birthplace: Minnesota Mother's name: Mary A Blair Mother's Birthplace: Wisconsin Able to Speak English: Yes Attended School: yes Able to Read: Yes Able to Write: Yes Neighbors: View others on page View others on page Household Members: Name Age John A Blair 53 Mary A Blair 46 Clemence A Blair 23 Isabelle Blair 21 Clarence Blair 21 Hazel Blair 19 Naomi Blair 17 Caroll Blair 13 Edward Blair 12 Amy Blair 10 Grace Blair 9 Madeline Blair 6
  16. Ladies and gentlemen, I'm doing a full-page sidebar for the upcoming issue of garrison and it concerns Warren Commissioners who expressed doubts later. I was wondering if there was a single place where someone has these instances listed, or if maybe I could get some assistance by those posting them here? Though LBJ is not a commissioner, per se, I would also like to place his more ambiguous statements into the sidebar. Thank you.
  17. I was blocked on The Deputy’s Film Facebook page. Surely I was successfully disproving or putting dents on Craig’s fake claims. Craig was a huge xxxx. This is a page on his claims. Enjoy. https://jfkassassinationfiles.wordpress.com/2018/03/29/roger-craig/amp/
  18. I guess Hefner was lucky. They shot Larry Flynt. Of course Hefner, unlike Flynt, didn't offer a million dollars in the 1970s for information on the JFK assassination. Flynt was shot in 1978 during the HSCA investigations. Not a good time to be dangling a million dollars for someone to talk.
  19. It certainly is an inside baseball level of understanding. The comment was mostly directed at the guys here who are still at only the MSM level. The bulk of the MSM, to use the onion analogy, is the visible outer skin, which is both thin and breaks apart in your hand. The second layer you have a few in the MSM that comprehend that something is wrong, but can’t get too deep without boring the audience (Hannity, NY Post, WSJ, Daily Mirror in the UK.) Maybe Jimmy Dore and Matt Taibbi at Rolling Stone from the Progressive side fall into this category too. The third layer is the Alt-Media journalists doing real investigative work. John Solomon (Epoch Times), Sarah Carter (Wash. Times, now independent), Luke Rosiack (Washington Examiner) come to mind. The deepest public layer (fourth) includes a few journalists, but mostly researchers who are talking to real whistle blowers, agency insiders, and those doing deep dives on names that suddenly become public. ie. Who is Vindman? Where did he work? Where did his brother’s work? Do they show up in PACER queries (Federal court filing database; some state.) The point was that anyone getting their information from the MSM is missing 95% of what is going on, and that is also publicly available. If the fourth layer has 100% of the information, Solomon, Carter, etc. can write a story that articulates only 50% of what is known while adhering to normal journalistic standards. By the time it gets to Hannity, only 50% of that (25% total or 50% x 50%) is presentable without losing the audience with too much info. The MSM takes out everything else that does not support their narrative, leaving the masses, and some of our esteemed commentators here on this forum thread, with only about 5% of the truth to work into a cogent counter-argument. Of course, if we were arguing on a Reddit Political forum or got into an impromptu classroom argument, the MSM narrative defenders could be dismissed as uninformed novices with respect to Deep State type machinations throughout the past 100 years. That none of the MSM narrative defenders are uninformed novices is insightful and entertaining.
  20. WHO WAS THE ANONYMOUS CALLER TO MRS. JACK TIPPIT? According to the agent in charge of the New Haven FBI office, the anonymous caller “KEPT REPEATING THE WORD BROTHER IN LAW,” almost certainly a reference to Grace Blair Gardos’s brother Fred Blair, also a proponent of communism. Is it likely that a neighbor or casual acquaintance of Emil and Grace would have known the couple’s relation to Fred Blair? Using powerful electronic databases and the internet, it’s easy now to find a few relatively obscure newspaper articles disclosing the relations, but it would hardly be common knowledge in NYC back then. Who would have known about Fred Blair and his relation to Emil Gardos? One decent guess would be a family member. I’m going to try to find out if Grace Gardos had a sister. It would be interesting to see if a sister or another reasonably close member of either Emil or Grace’s family lived anywhere near 77th and Second Ave. in NYC. That might go a long way in making an informed guess about the caller. Also, a fellow for the NYC Public Library sent me a note saying that my question asking where John Gardos would have attended school had been referred to another department, so things there are still moving there, hopefully.
  21. Rob - who cares how much SNOWDEN made theatrically? First you tell us it didn’t get a cinema release. Now you concede that it actually did but it’s problematic that it didn’t sell more cinema tickets. I’m sure they would have liked to but what does that have to do with the merits of the film? Maybe some audience members were waiting to buy it on Blu-Ray, or catch it on streaming. Because the majority of folk are watching movies at home these days rather than driving out to the cinema. TRANSFORMERS made way more money than SNOWDEN did, but I don’t feel that Stone is at fault for making a political movie about a whistleblower, rather than a CGI toy commercial of robots fighting. And SNOWDEN made nearly ten times as much as KILL THE MESSENGER did, so for a political movie it didn’t do too badly.
  22. Jim and I have talked about the Lee Oswald Bronx Zoo photo on several occasions. We disagree, but it's ok for honest folk to have diverging opinions. I dislike disagreeing with Jim since he is right more often than I am. I agree that most people see the Bronx youth as Lee Harvey Oswald. Brother Robert says I took the picture. Half-brother John Pic says I cannot identify this person as Lee Oswald. It may be because of what I am gong to discuss next. It is my contention that Lee Harvey Oswald has been edited out of the visual record. This is done by substituting a photo of Harvey, or a photo composited of Harvey and Lee, or Lee and someone else. There are a few things left from this editing process that we can identify as Lee Oswald (Lee Harvey Oswald). And, this is what may be going on here. Examine the picture of Lee Harvey Oswald on the left side. Look particularly at the ears. One is much bigger than the other indicating that his is a composite photo. It is a composite image of Lee Oswald and someone else. The figure's right side is Lee Oswald (Lee Harvey Oswald). The right ear does not have an earlobe and this is a characteristic trait of Lee Oswald. The nose of the Oswald figure is large and broad. I believe this is brought about by compositing features from two photos. This is the same kind of feature we see in the Bronx youth. His nose's broad width and size may be a compositing feature. This relates him to the Marine Oswald on the left. I don't see any signs of compositing in the Bronx photo. That doesn't mean that compositing didn't happen. An Alternative suggestion might be that at one time the Marine photo on the left was adjusted to look like the youth in the Bronx photo. Or, both were adjusted with this feature. It is my opinion that the photo of the left is formed from a photo of Lee Oswald. In comparison Harvey has earlobes which we see in this photo. He has a longer narrower nose. Neither person featured above has a minor cleft in their chin. This man does. This man pictured below is not Lee Harvey Oswald. And, we really don't know who this man is. We are currently trying to identify who he is and his early history through the Tippit Call.
