Does anyone know the role played by Ronald Reagan in the cover-up of the assassination of JFK? The reason why he did this is also very interesting as it provides links to the people who might have provided the funds for the assassination.

Well, as RR used to say, "There he goes again."

John wrote: " . . .as it provides links to the people who might have provided the funds for the assassination." [Emphasis supplied.] Gee, John, i suppose anyone who had reason to dislike JFK might have supplied funds for the assassination. Before you go down this road, I hope you can provide some evidence. I notice you have not responded to my challenge to provide any evidentiary basis for your assertion that people in the government killed JFK because he was turning left.

The rank speculation here is either pitiful or hilarious.

RR did several things to help bury the truth of the Assassination. One that comes to mind is when he as Gov. of CA he denied Garrison's request to extradite Edgar Eugene Bradley. Garrison had apparently been led to be confused between Bradley and Eugene Hale Brading / Jim Braden, but even so, this was Reagan helping-out to further discredit, embarrass and block Garrison's investigation [then ongoing via CIA and their assets]. Had the extradition been granted, Garrison would have realized his mistake, corrected it, and asked for the right man - also in CA.


This is true but I think a more significant aspect of the cover-up was the refusual to release documents that had been deposited in California and related to people linked to the CIA and the setting-up of Lee Harvey Oswald in New Orleans. More later.

Peter:

Who makes it a prequisite to becoming President?

How was William Jefferson Clinton involved in the cover up?

Clinton was "done in" by the Lewinsky affair because he refused to participate in the cover-up?

Wow, that's a new take.

Was Clinton asked to perform a service relevant to the cover up and for which he refused?

And how has the current POTUS participated in the cover-up?

Please explain!

And since neither Carter nor Clinton participated in the cover-up, at least to the best of your knowledge, may I assume your assertion that participation in the cover-up is a prerequisite to becoming President was a bit of an over-statement.

Peter, with all due respect, you did not answer a single question! Methinks no answers are possible.


Peter, here are two little hints for life:

1. Not EVERYTHING is a conspiracy;

and

2. Not all conspiracies that do exist are related to the JFK assassination.

In 1961 Alton Ochsner, with the financial help of Clint Murchison, established the Information Council of the Americas (INCA). Ed Butler was appointed as Executive Director of INCA. The main objective of the organization was to prevent communist revolutions in Latin America. Ochsner told the New Orleans States Item: "We must spread the warning of the creeping sickness of communism faster to Latin Americas, and to our own people, or Central and South America will be exposed to the same sickness as Cuba." (16th April, 1963)

Edgar and Edith Stern, owners of WDSU radio and television, were members of INCA. Eustis Reily of the Reily Coffee Company personally donated thousands of dollars to INCA. However, it was William Frawley, a Californian industrialist and close friend of Richard Nixon, who was INCA's largest financial contributor. The organization used some of this money to make a film about Fidel Castro entitled, Hitler in Havana. The New York Times reviewed the film calling it a "tasteless affront to minimum journalistic standards."

One of Ochsner's friends described him as being "like a fundamentalist preacher in the sense that the fight against communism was the only subject that he would talk about, or even allow you to talk about, in his presence."

Edward Haslam argues in Dr. Mary's Monkey that "Ochsner's hospital was one of the 159 covert research centers which the CIA had admitted to setting up." Haslam believes that Ochsner recruited Mary Sherman to run the research operation The basic project was set up March 23, 1962, using conventional facilities, which then expanded out of the loop for its final phases. Haslam believes that Sherman was involved in carrying out secret research into developing a vaccine to prevent an epidemic of soft-tissue cancers caused by polio vaccine contaminated with SV-40. This work included using a linear particle accelerator located in the Infectious Disease Laboratory at the Public Health Service Hospital in New Orleans. According to Haslam there was a second-lab working on this project. This was being run by David Ferrie on Louisiana Avenue Parkway.

Ochsner was strongly opposed to the domestic and foreign policy of President John F. Kennedy. He wrote to Senator Allen Ellender: "I sincerely hope that the Civil Rights Bill can also be defeated, because if it was passed, it would certainly mean virtual dictatorship by the President and the Attorney General, a thing I am sure they both want."

Ochsner was also friends with Clay Shaw. Ochsner was president of the International House, whereas Shaw was director of the organization. Both men were also directors of the Foreign Policy Association of New Orleans and arranged for CIA Deputy Director to New Orleans to discuss the communist threat.

Ochsner sat on the National Institute of Health Board of Directors. A fellow director in the early 1960s was Jose Rivera. In 1963 Rivera was in New Orleans handing out research grants from NIH to the Tulane Medical School.

The records of the Mexican consulate office in New Orleans show that when Lee Harvey Oswald obtained his visa for his trip to Mexico, he did so at the same time as William Gaudet. As Edward Haslam points out in Dr. Mary's Monkey : "Gaudet.. is known to have worked for the CIA and edited an anti-Communist newsletter which Ochsner financed."

Adele Edisen has revealed that in April 1963, Jose Rivera, gave her the name of Lee Harvey Oswald and his New Orleans phone number three weeks before he moved to the city.

On 21st July, 1964, Mary Sherman was murdered. It is possible that her death was connected to her relationship with Ochsner, Ferrie and Murchison.

In 1967 Jim Garrison began investigating the activities of Lee Harvey Oswald in New Orleans. Ochsner told a friend that he feared Garrison would order his arrest and the seizure of INCA's corporate records. Ed Butler took these records to California where William Frawley arranged for them to be hidden. Ronald Reagan, the governor of California refused all of Garrison's extradition requests. Frawley had previously helped fund Reagan's political campaigns in California.

Proving one's alliance to the cover-up is a necessary prerequisite to become President. Nixon, Bush Sr....not to mention LBJ who was IMO the master puppet-master of the cover-up.


You left out GERALD FORD, who became president ONLY BECAUSE HE COULD BE COUNTED ON
TO CONTINUE THE COVERUP.

Though of perhaps only tangential relevance, during Reagan's first attempt at the Republican nomination, he chose as his Veep candidate Senator Richard Schweiker. Along with Gary Hart, with whom he co-chaired a subcommittee examining 11/22/63, Schweiker likely knew as much about the assassination - at that juncture - as anyone else in government. Though I doubt it can be proven, I'm sure it was explained to Schweiker that it would be impolitic to discuss his knowledge in public, as it might have a negative impact on the ticket's electoral chances.

As for Gary Hart, we all know the "funny thing" that happened to him on his way to the White House.

It is truly remarkable the number of people who knew something about the assassination, or claimed to, who subsequently demonstrated aspirations for the highest office in the land: RFK, Nixon, Ford, Schweiker, Specter, Hart, Church, Bush the Elder, et al.

Is there ANY way on earth you can be less annoying? You sound just like Rush. Everying is Clinton.
Clinton wanted the JFK assassination investigated not covered up. Remember one of his and Hillary's most trusted aids was Sid Blumenthal whose nickname in the WH was "GK" (Grassy Knoll). Sid co-authored/edited Government By Gunplay: Conspiracies from Dallas to Watergate.

Along with Barry Goldwater, John Tower, Strom Thurmond, William Buckley and John Wayne, Reagan was a supporter of YAF.

Reagan was also an FBI informant, (SA-T1?). Hollywood snitch.

Max Rafferty, 1963 - 1971 Superintendent Public Instruction, Cal., 1968 Cal. Rep. Senator candidate. JBS member. In Ambassador hotel on another floor when RFK was shot.

Time: "It is "absolutely imperative," said Reagan, "that Max Rafferty be the next United States Senator." Reagan deputized his two top aides to spur Rafferty's flagging campaign, and he has sent out an emergency appeal for financial help to his "kitchen cabinet" of rich California businessmen."

The John Birch Society took credit for the election of Ronald Reagan as Governor of California.

The Birch Society's former National Director of Public Relations (former Congressman John Rousselot) campaigned for Reagan for President and subsequently accepted a position in the Reagan administration and then worked for his re-election.

Robert Welch, founder and head of the John Birch Society, publicly announced his intention to vote for Ronald Reagan for President.

Interesting. Leads one to suspect that those who aspire to and achieve the highest office in the US are told, tactfully, that the Dallas issue is not open for discussion--Presidents included. Those who aspired and failed would also been have told the facts of life, had they been successful.

Has anyone got any information on William Frawley, the Californian industrialist who was INCA's largest financial contributor. The web seems to have nothing on this man yet he was a major funder of both Nixon and Reagan and was probably the main figure behind the INCA cover-up in 1967.

Every President has allowed documents, concerning the assassination of JFK, to be withheld. Allowing secrets to remain, is, in my mind, participation in a cover-up after the fact.

It would be refreshing if, just once in a while, you didn't respond like a knee-jerk reflexive action to these posts.

As I recall, Clinton stated that he was satisfied that Lee Harvey Oswald shot JFK. Coming from a president, that's participating in the cover-up, especially since he was lying. Web Hubbell said that Clinton had him try to find out who killed JFK. He couldn't find out anything. (No surprise, since Hubbell was working at the State Dept., not the CIA or Pentagon.)

And how has the current POTUS participated in the cover-up?


The current POTUS probably doesn't even know who JFK was.
