  1. Today
  2. it is a theory (!) that Oswald met Kaminsky at the front door. 12:49 makes that a real thin one.
  3. Jim, After the assassination, George Lumpkin returned to the TSBD and took command there. DPD Archives Box 14, Folder# 4, Item# 10 page 22. http://jfk.ci.dallas.tx.us/box14.htm According to the Dispatch Tapes, George Lumpkin had arrived at the TSBD by 12:49 PM http://mcadams.posc.mu.edu/dpdtapes/ It was Kaminsky who Deputy Chief Lumpkin had positioned at the front door of the TSBD. This matches exactly what Postal Inspector, Harry Holmes wrote in his Report of Oswald's interrogation on Sunday, November 24th. See Warren Report, Appendix XI page 636 https://www.maryferrell.org/showDoc.html?docId=946#relPageId=660&tab=page Truly’s activities at the front door don’t appear anywhere in his WC testimony. How could Oswald have known that “his boss” was with a policeman at the front door unless he had been there to see it? Steve Thomas
  4. From Greg Parker: Here is the Kaminsky evidence in the Texas AG report: https://www.maryferrell.org/showDoc.html?docId=10484&relPageId=74 This is really interesting.
  5. Hasan Yusuf is an underrated researcher and writer. His take on Roy: http://jfkthelonegunmanmyth.blogspot.com/2013/01/roy-truly-truly-interesting-character_14.html
  6. Ron, There is no "might'. Ruth Paine did send LHO to Truly, who had just fired some people a day or so before. And let us not forget how Ruth studiously avoided giving Lee the lead to a better paying job, thus guaranteeing he would be at the TSBD.
  7. I would hope so but that's not a given is it? What's the principle then? There is none. If he can't be indicted for obstruction (which you've said in the past is an inconsequential "process crime") then why can he be indicted for anything? By this reasoning he can avoid indictment because the smallest minority in the Senate can kill it by voting against removal. That is, he only has to convince enough Senators to vote against impeachment that makes the vote 66 or less! Do you see my reasoning? I'm traveling but will take up the other part of the discussion later.
  8. I don't think I ever overstated the impact as you're suggesting I did. I asked you originally what you thought the cost of an organic campaign was (which you didn't respond to) and then said I was skeptical about the price tag of the FB campaign. In fact organic campaigns can be much more involved and that is why I question the idea that 40k was spent on the FB effort. It's possible though a large organic campaign could be mounted which is supplemented with targeted FB and YouTube posts to leverage and legitimize something like Hillary's pizzagate thing and there you go. It's picked up by RT or Alex Jones blah blah blah. I don't see that as out of the question.
  9. Regarding point two I've wondered a while if the roll call of employees is not indicative of foreknowledge by Truly. He was so involved, with Baker and the run up the steps, then coming back down. Then he does this roll call and finds only Oswald missing, while in fact others where? So he quickly relay's the info to Fritz on the Sixth Floor who dispatches an officer back to a patrol car on the ground to broadcast the info back to HQ. Who then send out a description of a man with a 30 - 30. Some might say Ruth Paine sent Oswald to Truly. So if he hired him as a result of the reference might he have had some suspicion that something was up when JFK was killed? Maybe even knew beforehand 'something" might happen? Did they both know George De Mornschild's associate Dallas CIA agent J Walton Moore. Who ok'd GDM's or passed on orders for contact with Oswald.
  10. The Lawfare article concedes that “much of the reporting simply remains uncorroborated”, and weakly holds that “none of it, to our knowledge, has been disproven.” In its summary, it proclaims that “the general thrust of Steele’s reporting seems credible in light of what we now know about extensive contacts between numerous individuals associated with the Trump campaign and Russian government officials….But surely there is more to come from Mueller’s team.” But there wasn’t more to come, as conceded by the Washington Post after the Mueller Report was released - https://www.washingtonpost.com/politics/2019/04/24/what-steele-dossier-said-vs-what-mueller-report-said/ Further, as is now known, the “extensive contacts” linking the Trump campaign with “Russian government officials” were, in the main - and this includes Papadopoulos, Trump Tower Moscow, Flynn, Page, and the June 2016 Trump Tower meeting - initiated by assets of the FBI/CIA/, MI-6, and Fusion GPS. I fully understand that Trump is a reactionary con-artist, but he legally won the election and the proper response should be within the constitutional framework of your country and not in the dirty tricks division of your sketchy intelligence agencies.
  11. Jeff, I posted links to the extensive database of Russian Facebook ads from 2016, as you requested. Have you reviewed any of them? They're like case studies in a Gerasimov Doctrine propaganda textbook for fomenting conflict and division in U.S. society along racial, ethnic, and religious lines-- in close parallel to the 2016 Trump/Manafort campaign. As for the verification of the Steele Dossier, here's a high quality link to a Lawfare review article on the subject. (In my experience, Lawfare publishes good material.) The Steele Dossier: A Retrospective https://www.lawfareblog.com/steele-dossier-retrospective Meanwhile, I'm still waiting for you and Robert to post a credible reference link to support the Trump/GOP talking point about the Steele Dossier being fake-- and to give us your take on the death of Oleg Erovinkin.
  12. Jim, Thanks for your reply. I think you hit the nail on the head with this "But you’re thinking of this as a soldier, not as a spook-in-training. I sincerely doubt that Harvey Oswald was ever listed as AWOL, even briefly. " I liked that and got a good chuckle from it. One of the problems in thinking that way is that there is little evidence to support it. I do to much speculating and generally get kicked around for it. So, I didn't go there in my thinking although it is fairly evident. I have no doubt you are right. The sequence of events, the military history of Harvey Oswald, I listed might be used as a kind of negative evidence. These things should have happened, but there is no record of them. Why? And, that why can raise the question what forces are at work here hiding events. Obviously, your answer is best. A spook in training as versus a Marine getting away with things no one else in the military would. The CIA / ONI are at work in the background controlling events. It makes sense. Training and using children is not an unknown thing in the spy world. Using a double or triple agent, here I mean using two or three people as one identity, is not unknown in the spying business. Project Oswald, IMO, was a defection program from its very beginning. The Soviets were not stupid and would recognize up front a plant (defector). So, that defector must have something to give to the Soviets that they madly wanted. He must have bona fides. What better than knowledge of the most secret military base in Asia, Atsugi, Japan. Intelligence operations, military operations, atomic secrets, just to name a few about Atsugi. Then there is the U2, radar knowledge, and knowledge of other secret bases such as Nellis Air Force base to name just one. Most Harvey and Lee detractors have the notion that Oswald had no knowledge that the Soviets didn't have and any he could have obtained was not that important. That's just nonsense. Aerial intelligence is just fine, but it doesn't tell you everything you might want to know. Lee Oswald was he only American in Minsk. Tourists came through, but they didn't live there. Oswald did. Human intelligence is vital. Hence, the defection program. Back to the U2 and its main problem. The U2 had a short, usable life span. It's only trick was to fly high above Soviet planes and missiles. Eventually, the Soviets would solve that problem and bring it down. Because of this, I think Harvey and Lee were rushed into military service at a young age, Lee at 16 and Harvey at 17 years old. The Russians might shoot a U2 down at any time. An advantage would be lost. When Harvey and possibly Lee returned to the US, probably at different times, the defection program was over. What could the Oswald Project be used for next? Here's what I think. Harvey did something wrong at some point. It may have been his time at the Dental Lab or his incident in Taiwan. Or, he could have screwed up in Russia and became a double agent, the traditional kind. He may have turned there. Or, perhaps his superiors thought Marina had to much of an influence on him. He burned the training camp on Lake Pontchartrain. The FBI closed it down. They may have thought he really was a communist. Some of the values he had were not in tune with his ultra-right bosses. Whatever, he was chosen as the patsy. Compare the CIA sending a plane to pick up Lee Oswald in Dallas that afternoon of the assassination to Harvey's record time capture. If he had done every thing right and was a fair-haired boy to his bosses, I don't think he would have been selected as a patsy for the next project of the Oswald Project.
  13. Why dont you have the mods ban Robert Wheeler ,after all he correctly called you dumb.

  14. Bob - you are welcome to speculate that the Internet Research Agency had developed an incredibly complex system which could produce graphics with simple memes which in fact acted as a form of mind control on American voters and then target a minuscule amount Facebook ads so precisely as to swing the 2016 election to Trump, but it remains a speculation. The only hard facts available about the IRA project is that it was hugely minuscule in context to total similar activity and that the actual content of the ads seem juvenile and dumb. W Niederhut - I’m sorry, but the information in the Steele Dossier remains largely unverified. Acknowledging this may be a Trump/GOP talking point, but it is also a material fact as of this date.Efforts may have been made after January 2017 to verify or follow up its assertions, but the relevant information is its use, prior to attempts to verify, in October 2016 to initiate FISA authorized surveillance directed against persons associated with the Trump campaign. This is the shoe which is yet to drop, scheduled to fall perhaps this week. This is the real scandal, which first began to surface in late 2017. Efforts to inform people that the verifiable facts would “flip the script” on this whole sordid affair have been met with layers of denial which have been mind-numbing to behold.
  15. The original story with links is here. https://web.archive.org/web/20081015145528/https://www.dallasnews.com/sharedcontent/dws/dn/latestnews/stories/022208dnmetjfkdocs.15b53191.html And I just emailed DMN with a query as to whether they still have the files or not.
  16. Yesterday
  17. I meant both. There is no response because you don’t make any sense. You articulated a straw man argument from a non-sequitor. If English is not your first language, apologies.
  18. We’re all experts on the Internet Bob. You’re friends with Jeff Bezos and Hewlett Packard is my cousin.
  19. I’m not sure who you think is dumb - Me or Congress? In either case it’s not much of a response.
  20. Wasn’t Harvey Lee Oswald inserted into CIA files as a poison pill? That it ended up in military files - Army - is suspicious. I’ve thought for a long time that it is a major clue, along with the false physical description that went out over Police radio within 20 minutes of the assassination. I appreciate the expertise that Steve and Bill bring to their posts.
  21. Classic. Perhaps the dumbest thing said to date. Congress made a mistake.
  22. I agree. It’s become a mantra to declare the dossier disproven. Definitely a Trumper talking point. But I will repeat that domestic forces, such as Trump’s family operations and Cambridge Analytica, spent millions on FB, using sophisticated and expensive algorithms. The hidden but slowly coming to light expose of Trumps financial ties to Russians and others is the real story of his ill gotten presidency. Congress mistakenly made Russian collusion the centerpiece of Mueller’s investigation. Meanwhile NY and other states are pursuing, with great difficulty, Deutche Bank, Cyprus, Russian oligarch money and the full extent of Trumps financial shenanigans.
  23. Robert, Where are you getting your concept that the Steele Dossier is fake? Please post a credible source to back up that Trump/GOP talking point. There was quite a bizarre outcry in our mainstream U.S. media when Buzz Feed first published the Steele Dossier in January of 2017, on the grounds that it was "unverified," (presumably unlike all of those unverified anonymous FBI "leaks" about Hillary's Emails in the headlines throughout 2016, eh?) Yet, since January 2017, many of the Dossier's details have, in fact, been verified. (We're still waiting on others-- including Trump's "pee pee" tape. But who on earth would be surprised to learn that an old KGB kompromat pro like Putin had filmed a guy like Donald Trump cavorting with prostitutes?) Also, what are we to make of Oleg Erovinkin's death right after Putin learned about Steele's Dossier?
