  1. Past hour
  2. I posted this days ago. To me its probably the best article there is on the so called FB angle and it specifically deals with the MSM accusations. https://consortiumnews.com/2018/10/10/the-shaky-case-that-russia-manipulated-social-media-to-tip-the-2016-election/ Second, how can you possibly say that the FBI played a crucial role in beating HRC, and ignore what they did with the Steele Dossier and trying to get people close to Trump interested in the so called HRC emails? Third, what Trump has tried to do through people like Barr, and unsuccessfully Gowdy, is trace the beginnings of this whole Steele Dossier, Russian collusion angle which began before the election. Mr. Wheeler has posted some really interesting stuff about this that you will not get from the MSM. And when I say MSM, I also include the so called liberal blogosphere. Which has become the MSM online. They invested tons of credibility in this Russian collusion idea also. Here is a pretty good article on the whole can you indict a sitting president issue: https://www.reuters.com/article/us-usa-trump-russia-indictment-explainer/can-a-sitting-us-president-face-criminal-charges-idUSKCN1QF1D3
  3. Today
  4. The sample range will grow larger as I continue on. I believe you used 18.3fps(average) for Z, I will stick with 15.6fps (average) which is quite close to its factory spec. The progressive frame count from my sync point (Z435) to the end of Bell is 81 frames. 81/15.6 = 5.19sec.
  5. Then why did the Russia-hacks-DNC story only make two 24 hour news cycles over the last 5 months of the campaign, with nothing on that matter over the last 70 days? The Obama administration denounced Russia for interference in the US election on Oct. 7 and that item never made the news cycle. The Mueller investigation didn't start until after Trump fired Comey -- the guy who installed him in the White House! If "the establishment" wanted Clinton to win why was she hammered relentlessly for two years over her nothing-burger e-mails? Trump openly solicited Russian interference in the 2016 election. He's openly solicited Ukrainian and Chinese interference in the 2020 election. Team Fascist wants to call this fake news... The only journalists and analysts you credit are those who feed into your confirmation bias. Those who claim The Deep State was out to sabotage Trump's campaign couldn't "deep analyze" their way out of an open paper bag.
  6. Anthony, Back in 2008, when the Dallas Morning News made these available online, I went through them pretty extensively. You can find my analyses (pl of analysis?) here: New Dallas Documents Online In the end, when the News was trying to decide what to do with these documents, I urged the News to donate them to the Mary Ferrell Foundation where they could be scanned and made keyword searchable. Instead, it's my understanding that they were given to the Sixth Floor Museum where they remain locked up. (Gary Mack and I went round and round about this. He assured me they would be accessible).

  7. John, I respect the work you do, and not having been in the military, I would defer to your knowledge about how some things work, but in researching U.S. Marines 1950's - Images, I ran across several pictures of Marines with their boots "bloused" - like this one: https://macaudailytimes.com.mo/this-day-in-history-1950-pyongyang-taken-as-un-retreats.html It looks like sometimes they did, and sometimes they didn't. Steve Thomas
  8. Are those particular files physically accessible to researchers?
  9. Honestly guys - believe what you want to believe. Good luck to you. The establishment beef with Trump has been based on foreign policy, specifically his opinions on improving relations with Russia. No lie or slander has been out of bounds in an effort to prevent a policy of rapprochement. The New York Times and Marco Rubio have been leading the pack on these efforts, and their sources and methods have often lacked simple journalistic ethics. Anyone can write a report or make an assertion - the devil is in the details, as you should know. The professional journalists and analysts who have broken down the details - rather than simply take everything at face value - have clearly demonstrated that the establishment line is a pack of lies.
  10. I wondered a little bit about the "dragging guns up the mountainside" reference by Oswald in his conversation with Priscilla Johnson. I asked myself why Americans would be doing the manual labor. These references might explain it a little bi, and lend some credence to what Oswald was saying: https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Taiwan "During the Second Taiwan Strait Crisis in September 1958, Taiwan's landscape saw Nike-Hercules missile batteries added, with the formation of the 1st Missile Battalion Chinese Army that would not be deactivated until 1997." https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Second_Taiwan_Strait_Crisis "Twelve long-range 203 mm (8.0 in) M115 howitzer artillery pieces and numerous[quantify] 155 mm howitzers were transferred from the U.S. Marine Corps to the Army of the Nationalist China. These were sent west to Kinmen Island to gain superiority in the artillery duel back and forth over the straits there." Steve Thomas
  11. Yep. That's correct. It appears that sometimes they rolled their trousers up. In this familiar photo look at the way the trousers and boots are worn. Marines did not blouse boots until their regulations changed in 2003. So any photos of the 1950s or 60s should reflect that dress code of unbloused boots. I have no idea why they dressed that way, but they did and nobody in the Army could change that when Marines visited or were stationed at an Army post. Your points on the HSCA are well made. Particularly, Warren Commission Exhibit 918. "Oswald did not sail from Yokosuka, Japan, on September 16, 1958. He remained aboard NAS, Atsugi as part of the MAG-11 rear echelon." A bit of naval jargon to confuse the issue and make you think he is on a ship. "remained aboard NAS, Atsugi". Doesn't this suggest a ship. NAS actually is Naval Air Station, Atsugi and not a ship. By saying "remaining aboard" suggests a ship and not a land, Naval Air Station..
  12. So you think the Zapruder gap is Z435 to Z469 (34 frames), with the Bell gap being 29 frames? If Zapruder was 18.3 FPS then this makes Bell about 15.6 FPS, which seems fairly close to the quoted rate for Bell's camera you mentioned in an earlier post (i.e. 16 FPS). By contrast if Zapruder was running a bit slower at say 17.3 FPS, then this section of Bell would have been 14.8 FPS. With Zapruder at 17.3 FPS, that makes the Wiegman film about 30.1 FPS between Z295 and Z447. This is all within acceptable boundaries I would say, both in terms of the cameras and also my study of the Wiegman timing anomaly in section C of the handbook. As always though, there are margins for error, so an extra frame or two here or there will change the ratio dramatically as 29 sample frames is quite a small range.
  13. Ernie, Thank you for clarifying this. I have been staggered in the past by the amount of work you put into compiling these records. What a monumental undertaking! Steve Thomas
  14. So, David, you'd be pretty sure that the head shot we see in the Zapruder film came from the direction of the South Knoll, correct? It certainly looks like that to me. Just to add another thought to what you're saying to Ron, in the instant before the explosive head shot, JFK's face was pushed down and forward by an almost simultaneous shot from the rear. This would have made the entrance of the head shot bullet higher on the forehead than it otherwise would have been, but still consistent with a shot from the South Knoll.
  15. How the HSCA “fixed” the problem of Oswald being in Japan and Taiwan simultaneously In an undated letter sent to Secretary of Defense Harold Brown, HSCA chief counsel Robert Blakey questioned the very contradiction we have been discussing here when he wrote the following: 2. During which periods was Oswald separated from his units overseas because of hospitalization? Oswald's health records reflect that he was sent “to mainside for smear” on September 16, 1958. (See Warren Commission Vol 19, p 603; see also Vol. 8, p. 313.) But other records reveal that Oswald's unit, MAG 11, sailed from Yokosuka, Japan, on September 16, 1958, for the South China Sea area, and did not return to Japan until October 5, 1958. (See Warren Commission vol. 23, p. 797; see also Warren Report, p. 684.) Mr. Brown’s office responded with a “Fact Sheet….” that included this statement: "Oswald did not sail from Yokosuka, Japan, on September 16, 1958. He remained aboard NAS, Atsugi as part of the MAG-11 rear echelon." PROBLEM SOLVED! Except for the fact that the solution was phony. First of all, both contemporary and modern records clearly indicate that the USS Skagit (AKA 105) departed from Yokosuka, Japan NOT on Sept. 16, as claimed above, but on Sept. 14, 1958. Hear, again, are the USMC unit diaries describing the ship’s departure with Oswald aboard on Sept. 14, 1958, and “Oswald’s” presence in Ping Tung, Taiwan, on October 6. The web page Sandy found, TIME LINE 1944 to 1969: USS SKAGIT AKA / LKA 105, showed .... ...under the subhead “Recollections of: Clark Leonard, LT. USMC: Combat Cargo Officer 1958 – 1959,” the following entry: "Departed Sept.14 and ran into Typhoon Helen, very rough seas, and giant waves. Arrived Kaoshung, Formosa on Sept,19 unloaded matting continuously for 48 hours." The USS Skagit departed from Japan on Sept 14, 1958, just as the documents above show. And "Lee Harvey Oswald" was on board. In addition to the USMC docs shown above, there is quite a bit more evidence that the Russian-speaking Oswald was indeed in Taiwan/Formosa. In the 1959 Moscow interview with Priscilla Johnson, her notes indicated he observed Americans in foreign countries: “Like Formosa. The conduct of American technicians there, helping drag up guns for the Chinese.” In her finished article, Johnson wrote that Oswald “had spent 14 months in Japan, the Phillipines, Indonesia, and Formosa as a radar operator….” A message of November 4, 1959 reported that Oswald “served with Marine Air Control Squadrons in Japan and Taiwan with duties involving ground control intercept." A Naval Message also dated November 4, 1959 further confirms that Oswald was Stationed in Taiwan. “Marguerite Oswald" told the Warren Commission (emphasis added): This is a picture of Lee with his marines, and it is a special, I think he was doing special work there. I am not familiar--I wasn't told that. But it is different than the other picture. Lee went to many, many a school, gentlemen. He went to the Marine Air Force Base in Biloxi, Mississippi, to schooling. He went to Jacksonville and some others. I remarked, "Your brothers were not sent from here to there like you were." Lee was in Japan, Lee was in Corregidor, Lee was in the Philippines, and Lee was in Formosa. That has not been publicly stated. In the 1990s, John A. examined at the National Archives “photographs taken by Harvey Oswald of aircraft, troops and bunkers in Taiwan [which] were found by the Dallas Police among his possessions and are now in the National Archives.” The evidence that one Oswald was in Atsugi, Japan, while the other was on the high seas and in Taiwan/Formosa is substantial.
  16. John A described the difference between Chinese and Japanese characters pretty much the same way. In the next post, I’ll show that the HSCA clearly understood the problem with Oswald being in Japan and Taiwan simultaneously and I'll show how the Committee settled on a phony “solution.” With that in mind, it wouldn’t surprise me a bit if photos of “Oswald” in Taiwan might not find their way online. If I understand this “bloused” boots issue, any image of a Marine from the 1950s or 1960s should show his pant legs kind of bunched around the top of the boots, and not inserted into the boots. Is that correct?
  17. The Building Democracy webpage no longer exists. All my Dean-related files are still on Internet Archive (links provided in previous message reply to Michael Clark)
  18. Michael, The first part of Ernie's external weblink reference (http://www.buildingdemocracy.us/), yields this: buildingdemocracy.us is almost here! Upload your website to get started. The next step in the reference brings the first 404 return: http://www.buildingdemocracy.us/archive/ On Ernie's own site: https://networks.h-net.org/system/files/contributed-files/lazar-finding-aid-new-01-26-15.pdf there is this reference: My FBI file collection was originally mailed in June 2013 to various universities (such as University of California—Berkeley) on a set of four dual-layer DVD’s and also uploaded onto the following websites: Internet Archive: https://archive.org/details/lazarfoia?and[]=mediatype%3A%22collection%22and Building Democracy: http://www.buildingdemocracy.us/archive/dox/lazar/index.htm The Building Democracy weblink returns a 404 error.

  19. Jeff, Here are some references on the subject of Russian meddling in the 2016 U.S. elections. Meanwhile, can you post some references to support Trump's claim that Russian hacking of our 2016 election is "fake news?" House Democrats release more than 3,500 Russian Facebook ads https://techcrunch.com/2018/05/10/house-democrats-facebook-russia/ https://intelligence.house.gov/social-media-content/social-media-advertisements.htm Russia Targeted Election Systems in All 50 States, Report Finds https://www.nytimes.com/2019/07/25/us/politics/russian-hacking-elections.html?auth=login-email&login=email Russian Hackers Were ‘In a Position’ to Alter Florida Voter Rolls, Rubio Confirms https://www.nytimes.com/2019/04/26/us/florida-russia-hacking-election.html Top-Secret NSA Report Details Russian Hacking Effort Days Before 2016 Election https://theintercept.com/2017/06/05/top-secret-nsa-report-details-russian-hacking-effort-days-before-2016-election/
  20. This may help... the oVal representing his head is facing correctly at z313... all depends on which shots you’re referring to... see the original West Plat below... And remember what Altgens said... final shot was only 15 feet from him.. that would be the 2nd yellow curb, not the one by Moorman and Hill
  21. Will someone who is planning to attend this conference please ask Judge Birmingham why these records have not been digitized and made keyword searchable on the Internet? Steve Thomas
  22. What did Facebook say about their organic results? Just wondering if you know that. The money supposedly spent on ad buys doesn't include funds for organic search optimization via Facebook, Google or Bing nor does it account for comment spamming on thousands and thousands of websites such as this (as many people here do in fact). It's easy to direct a few influencers to bogus sites like DC Leaks and others and scale the ad buy. I also believe the 40k number is incorrect but I don't know where you got that.
  23. Greetings from CAPA, THE LATEST ADDITION TO OUR PROGRAM: In keeping with CAPA’s ongoing efforts to pursue the truth and seek justice for the JFK assassination, CAPA will be conducting a mock Court of Inquiry at the conference. A Court of Inquiry is a unique Texas procedure used to examine allegations of prosecutorial misconduct and wrongful convictions. Members of the CAPA legal committee will argue that the arrest of Lee Harvey Oswald should be expunged because of a lack of probable cause that he shot President John F. Kennedy. This would clear his name officially and leave the case technically unresolved opening the door to a real investigation. The CAPA legal committee hopes to file an actual Court of Inquiry petition in the future and will be using the mock hearing as a rehearsal or dry run to see how a state court judge will respond to the evidence. To that end, the attorneys will experiment with different arguments to see which lines of evidence would work best in an actual hearing. Judge Jay Karahan, retired, will be the presiding judge. David Denton, History Professor, Olney Central College, and Head of the JFK Historical Group, will speak on “The Newly Released Documents: What They Say About William Harvey's Potential Participation in the JFK Murder and the Faulty Intelligence that JFK Received About Vietnam." John Curington, H.L. Hunt’s personal attorney and special assistant from 1957 to 1969 will speak about Hunt’s actions in the first 48 hours after the assassination.

  24. It all depends on the trajectory of the bullet - what angle it was travelling in when it struck. Also, if I recall correctly, Kennedy's head was both turned to the side and hanging downward.
