    I would bet my house, my car, and my bank account that the Clintons & Buddy Young sent 3 Arkansas state trooper goons to beat the living hell out of and nearly murder Gary Johnson (the lawyer for Larry Nichols & neighbor of Gennifer Flowers) on June 26, 1992. They did this because Gary Johnson had security camera videotapes of Bill Clinton often entering Gennifer's condo. The Clintons were denying the Bill/Gennifer affair at that time. The Clinton thugs then stole the tapes. Watch the "New Clinton Chronicles" and go to minute 48 for the Gary Johnson interview.

When John Gotti is running a non-investigation into one of his mob hits, the ballistics and forensic tests don't mean that much. Ditto when Lyndon Johnson, J. Edgar Hoover and the LBJ- manipulated Dallas police are running a non-investigation into the death of John Kennedy, it is a huge mistake to not understand that the forensic record is corrupted. The same applies to the LBJ-appointed & CIA Allen Dulles controlled and manipulated Warren Commission.

 

That means a fingerprint is not a fingerprint, a bullet is not a bullet, an x-ray is not an x-ray, a photo is not a photo. An interview is often a corrupted interview, coached witnesses, altered testimony, etc. Real evidence is destroyed. Real evidence is ignored. Phony non evidence is introduced into the evidentiary record.

 

PBS is dialing in with a lone nutter special this fall: http://tvbythenumber...-on-pbs/196388/

 

The hilarious John McAdams, probably one of the most lowly respected persons in all of JFK research, is being touted as one of their star experts.

FIFTY YEARS AFTER THE ASSASSINATION OF JOHN F. KENNEDY, NOVA ASKS: COULD MODERN SCIENCE AND INVESTIGATORS DO BETTER?
COLD CASE JFK

Premieres Wednesday, November 13 at 9PM/8c on PBS

[BOSTON] -- The 1963 assassination of President John F. Kennedy has fueled dark rumors of conspiracies for decades. Now, 50 years later, what can modern science tell us about the shooting in Dallas—and the investigations that followed? NOVA and a team of foremost experts employ exclusive tests and sophisticated new technology to reconstruct and review the evidence in COLD CASE JFK, premiering on Wednesday, November 13 at 9PM/8c on PBS (check local listings).

COLD CASE JFK is part of a series of specials airing in November on PBS to commemorate the 50th anniversary of President John F. Kennedy’s death. This collection provides viewers with a comprehensive slate of programs that deliver fresh, unbiased perspectives on a defining historical moment of the 20th century. This programming is part of an ongoing collaboration among PBS documentary, science, news and public affairs programs to bring audiences trustworthy, factual content tied to relevant national conversations.

In COLD CASE JFK, NOVA follows a unique group of experts trying to unravel the lingering mysteries of the Kennedy assassination. What should have been a homicide investigator’s best-case scenario—a crime that occurred in broad daylight in front of hundreds of witnesses—instead became a forensics nightmare in a case plagued by a mishandled crime scene, a controversial autopsy, and a Prime Suspect gunned down while in police custody.

NOVA combines cutting edge technology and contemporary scientific techniques with archival footage and expert interviews to recreate the crime and the Warren Commission’s investigation--examining the shooting, the assassination scene, the medical information and wounds, and the evidence found on the sixth floor of the Texas School Book Depository.

 

The film features several exclusive elements: For the first time since the original investigation by the FBI laboratory, forensic scientists trained and experienced in both firearms identification and shooting scene reconstruction review and evaluate the ballistics evidence in the JFK assassination. These experts apply new technology, not available until recently, to this historic crime.

Forensic innovations featured in Cold Case JFK include:
• Test-firing the exact model of rifle and ammunition used by Lee Harvey Oswald
• High-speed videography to understand how these particular bullets behave in flight and in human tissue
• Multiple wound ballistics and tissue stimulants to test the Warren Commission’s controversial “magic bullet” theory
• New ballistic Doppler radar, not yet available in major crime labs
• Measuring the sounds of Carcano gunshots and supersonic bullets at various distances--useful for analyzing “ear witness” testimony
• Contemporary 3-D laser scans to recreate and analyze the physical crime scene and possible bullet trajectories, including “the grassy knoll”
• Virtual autopsy of JFK’s body

To execute the forensic tests, NOVA calls on several leading experts—including father and son firearms experts Lucien and Michael Haag; private investigator Josiah Thompson; medical examiner and forensic neuropathologist Peter Cummings; laser scanning specialist Tony Grissim; legendary newsman, Jim Lehrer, and historian and leading JFK assassination expert, John McAdams.

The most controversial aspect of the Warren Report is the “single bullet theory,” which says that one shot wounded both President John Kennedy and Governor John Connally, causing seven separate wounds in the two men. The bullet which the Warren Commission claimed did all this damage was discovered on a gurney at Parkland Hospital, looking virtually pristine, leading critics to deride it as “the magic bullet.” Yet the single bullet theory is essential to the Warren conclusion that Oswald acted alone.

To test the single bullet theory, the film travels to a shooting range in New Mexico where criminalists Lucien and Michael Haag, experts in firearms and ballistics, reconstruct the shooting. The Doppler radar used by the father and son duo is a technology so new and unique that even the FBI and BATF forensic laboratories do not yet possess it. The Haags are convinced that the only hope of understanding what really happened in the assassination lies in reexamining the physical evidence: the weapon, the bullets and the wounds. They have studied Oswald’s rifle and discovered that both the gun and the ammunition it uses have some extremely unusual properties-–documented with high-speed video and shooting tests--which may shed new light on the controversial single bullet theory.

The Haags also pursue the question of whether there was a second shooter who fired from the grassy knoll, as the 1979 House Select Committee on Assassinations concluded. Working with laser scanning expert Tony Grissim, they use state-of-the-art 3D laser scanning to build a three-dimensional virtual model of Dealey Plaza.

With this model, accurate to the millimeter, they can evaluate any and all possible trajectories and determine what shooting positions were – or were not – possible.

 

Renowned JFK assassination expert and professor John McAdams weighs in on the findings of the original Warren Commission, the deficiencies of the medical and autopsy evidence, and the lack of understanding on the part of the Kennedy camp on the need for a forensic autopsy at the time.

Veteran investigator Josiah Thompson also studies the most famous “eye witness” account of that day: the 8mm Zapruder film—perhaps the best known “home movie” in history--which captures the shooting and wounds sustained by both the president and the Texas governor as their motorcade rides through Dealey Plaza in downtown Dallas.

The assassination of President John F. Kennedy was a defining moment in our nation’s history and one that continues to perplex us. It was also the murder of a man. A half-century later, the shooting remains controversial to a majority of the public that doubts the Warren Commission findings that Lee Harvey Oswald acted alone. In Cold Case JFK, NOVA shows viewers the importance of re-examining the evidence of prior eras using the technology and tools of today to try to unlock the secrets of the past and yield important new insights.

###

Now in its 40th season, NOVA is the most-watched prime time science series on American television, reaching an average of five million viewers weekly. The series remains committed to producing in-depth science programming in the form of hour-long (and occasionally longer) documentaries, from the latest breakthroughs in technology to the deepest mysteries of the natural world. NOVA airs Wednesdays at 9pm ET/PT on WGBH Boston and most PBS stations. The Director of the WGBH Science Unit and Senior Executive Producer of NOVA is Paula S. Apsell.

National Corporate Funding for NOVA is provided by The Boeing Company. Funding for NOVA is provided by David H. Koch Fund For Science, the Corporation for Public Broadcasting, and public television viewers.

Thanks, Robert, for posting this. How uninspiring. It sounds like a rehash of the Discovery Channel's programs. They actually think McAdams is an expert on the medical evidence. Sickening.

I am keeping track on who in the media is the most flagrant this year pushing the "Oswald did it" lone nutter theory. I call it the JFK 50th Hall of Shame. So far the top ones are

 

1) USA Today with a front page cover story with multiple direct statements saying Oswald shot Kennedy.

2) NY Times - with an Oswald graveyard article with a direct statement saying Oswald shot Kennedy.

3) PBS/Nova with the upcoming, apparently, lone nutter special.

4) Dallas Morning News - direct statements in articles that Oswald shot Kennedy -

http://photographyblog.dallasnews.com/2013/08/eyewitness-to-jfk-assassination-four-former-dallas-morning-news-journalists-who-were-there.html/

 

This list is going to get longer and we can see who in the MSM, and the elite media did the worst this year on their JFK assassination coverage.

 

Haven't these folks heard of "back and to the left?" ... not to mention 50 years of very high quality JFK research, some of it on this very discussion board?

 

Dallas Police Chief Jesse Curry on Oswald:

* “We don’t have any proof that Oswald fired the rifle. No one has been able to put him in that building with a gun in his hand.” —Dallas Police Chief Jesse Curry, quoted by United Press International, November 5, 1969

Dont tell me anyone actually believed that an unbiased and honest account of the investigation (or any aspect thereof) and evidence would be broadcast on mainstream, public television did you? This comes as absolutely no suprise to me.

While it will most probably be a tired rehash of the Discovery Channel shows, I remain hopeful it will turn up something new. The PBS program on Oswald, after all, brought forth the photograph of Oswald with Ferrie. Up till then, most LNs claimed they'd never known each other. Now, not so much.

Coming from someone who does not even recognize a "reverse image" of an autopsy photograph, this statement does not pass any test of credibility. 

 

Tom Purvis

 

P.S.  Since Professor McAdams is in receipt of the full contingent of 80+ newspaper publishings which deal with all three shots of the assassination, and since "Tink" Thompson is in possession of the 30+ publishings which deal ONLY with CE399, how it came to exist, and the wounds that it is responsible for, this just may be an attempt at presentation of some relatively new factual information. 

 

Which, is considerably more than one can usually expect to see here.

[BOSTON] -- The 1963 assassination of President John F. Kennedy has fueled dark rumors of conspiracies for decades. Now, 50 years later, what can modern science tell us about the shooting in Dallas—and the investigations that followed? NOVA and a team of foremost experts employ exclusive tests and sophisticated new technology to reconstruct and review the evidence in COLD CASE JFK, premiering on Wednesday, November 13 at 9PM/8c on PBS (check local listings).

COLD CASE JFK is part of a series of specials airing in November on PBS to commemorate the 50th anniversary of President John F. Kennedy’s death. This collection provides viewers with a comprehensive slate of programs that deliver fresh, unbiased perspectives on a defining historical moment of the 20th century. This programming is part of an ongoing collaboration among PBS documentary, science, news and public affairs programs to bring audiences trustworthy, factual content tied to relevant national conversations.

In COLD CASE JFK, NOVA follows a unique group of experts trying to unravel the lingering mysteries of the Kennedy assassination. What should have been a homicide investigator’s best-case scenario—a crime that occurred in broad daylight in front of hundreds of witnesses—instead became a forensics nightmare in a case plagued by a mishandled crime scene, a controversial autopsy, and a Prime Suspect gunned down while in police custody.

NOVA combines cutting edge technology and contemporary scientific techniques with archival footage and expert interviews to recreate the crime and the Warren Commission’s investigation--examining the shooting, the assassination scene, the medical information and wounds, and the evidence found on the sixth floor of the Texas School Book Depository.

 

The film features several exclusive elements: For the first time since the original investigation by the FBI laboratory, forensic scientists trained and experienced in both firearms identification and shooting scene reconstruction review and evaluate the ballistics evidence in the JFK assassination. These experts apply new technology, not available until recently, to this historic crime.

Forensic innovations featured in Cold Case JFK include:
• Test-firing the exact model of rifle and ammunition used by Lee Harvey Oswald
• High-speed videography to understand how these particular bullets behave in flight and in human tissue
• Multiple wound ballistics and tissue stimulants to test the Warren Commission’s controversial “magic bullet” theory
• New ballistic Doppler radar, not yet available in major crime labs
• Measuring the sounds of Carcano gunshots and supersonic bullets at various distances--useful for analyzing “ear witness” testimony
• Contemporary 3-D laser scans to recreate and analyze the physical crime scene and possible bullet trajectories, including “the grassy knoll”
• Virtual autopsy of JFK’s body

To execute the forensic tests, NOVA calls on several leading experts—including father and son firearms experts Lucien and Michael Haag; private investigator Josiah Thompson; medical examiner and forensic neuropathologist Peter Cummings; laser scanning specialist Tony Grissim; legendary newsman, Jim Lehrer, and historian and leading JFK assassination expert, John McAdams.

The most controversial aspect of the Warren Report is the “single bullet theory,” which says that one shot wounded both President John Kennedy and Governor John Connally, causing seven separate wounds in the two men. The bullet which the Warren Commission claimed did all this damage was discovered on a gurney at Parkland Hospital, looking virtually pristine, leading critics to deride it as “the magic bullet.” Yet the single bullet theory is essential to the Warren conclusion that Oswald acted alone.

To test the single bullet theory, the film travels to a shooting range in New Mexico where criminalists Lucien and Michael Haag, experts in firearms and ballistics, reconstruct the shooting. The Doppler radar used by the father and son duo is a technology so new and unique that even the FBI and BATF forensic laboratories do not yet possess it. The Haags are convinced that the only hope of understanding what really happened in the assassination lies in reexamining the physical evidence: the weapon, the bullets and the wounds. They have studied Oswald’s rifle and discovered that both the gun and the ammunition it uses have some extremely unusual properties-–documented with high-speed video and shooting tests--which may shed new light on the controversial single bullet theory.

The Haags also pursue the question of whether there was a second shooter who fired from the grassy knoll, as the 1979 House Select Committee on Assassinations concluded. Working with laser scanning expert Tony Grissim, they use state-of-the-art 3D laser scanning to build a three-dimensional virtual model of Dealey Plaza.

With this model, accurate to the millimeter, they can evaluate any and all possible trajectories and determine what shooting positions were – or were not – possible.

 

Renowned JFK assassination expert and professor John McAdams weighs in on the findings of the original Warren Commission, the deficiencies of the medical and autopsy evidence, and the lack of understanding on the part of the Kennedy camp on the need for a forensic autopsy at the time.

Veteran investigator Josiah Thompson also studies the most famous “eye witness” account of that day: the 8mm Zapruder film—perhaps the best known “home movie” in history--which captures the shooting and wounds sustained by both the president and the Texas governor as their motorcade rides through Dealey Plaza in downtown Dallas.

The assassination of President John F. Kennedy was a defining moment in our nation’s history and one that continues to perplex us. It was also the murder of a man. A half-century later, the shooting remains controversial to a majority of the public that doubts the Warren Commission findings that Lee Harvey Oswald acted alone. In Cold Case JFK, NOVA shows viewers the importance of re-examining the evidence of prior eras using the technology and tools of today to try to unlock the secrets of the past and yield important new insights.

Thanks, Robert, for posting this. How uninspiring. It sounds like a rehash of the Discovery Channel's programs. They actually think McAdams is an expert on the medical evidence. Sickening.

Coming from someone who does not even recognize a "reverse image" of an autopsy photograph, this statement does not pass any test of credibility. 

 

Tom Purvis

 

P.S.  Since Professor McAdams is in receipt of the full contingent of 80+ newspaper publishings which deal with all three shots of the assassination, and since "Tink" Thompson is in possession of the 30+ publishings which deal ONLY with CE399, how it came to exist, and the wounds that it is responsible for, this just may be an attempt at presentation of some relatively new factual information. 

 

Which, is considerably more than one can usually expect to see here.

 

 

 

If you're dreaming, Tom, that McAdams is gonna present YOUR theories to a national audience, well, dream again. I've been a member and follower of his newsgroup for a number of years now, and have yet to see him embrace any new ideas beyond those that will help him pretend Oswald acted alone, and that the WC investigation was entirely above board. You don't believe that, do you?

 

As far as your contention an autopsy photo is a reverse image, well, 1) start another thread and show us what you're talking about; 2) show us where McAdams or anyone you consider an expert has ever said such a thing, or acknowledged such a thing.

I see Tink is mentioned in the article. What does he have to say about the production?  Tink ? 

 

Tink, I believe is busy wrapping up a new manuscript that I think may explain a lot, though I too would like to know what his contribution to the NOVA special was. 

 

In the NOVA press release they also mention a new "virtual autopsy," which I can imagine is probably an application of Dale Myers computer generated cartoons and not a real, virtual autopsy of the body, which can and should be done now with the latest techniques and equipment.

Does anyone, ANYONE actually believe the conclusion reached in the upcoming "NOVA" Special will be anything other than: LHO was the lone gunman, and the SBT is the most logical explanation as to what happened on Elm Street Nov 22nd 1963?

 

After 50 years the Warren Commission Report supporters (the main stream media leading the pact) are going to change colors, at this late date? Come on, and the tooth fairy is on her way too?

 

What would cause lone nuts and WCR support organizers to pause and take note is simple: JFK case researchers of repute leaning towards conspiracy 1) resign from internet forums, 2) organize the investigators, divey out areas of expertise, work-out a simple script-synopsis-presentation updating the entire JFK assassination case evidence, 3) STOP posting via the internet/USENET type forums and other web means, 4) announce on those same forums resigned from when the work is finished, 5) then wait. Reputable, experienced television/film producers will find you.

David,

 I agree that this will be a typical mainstream media state-of-the- art visual proof, via anatomically incorrect dolls riding in improperly scaled vehicles, that super Lee killed JFK, and thus Tippet, with his finely tuned mail order rifle, and super revolver that was capable of firing automatic bullets. It will also show that the magic bullet was actually obeying the laws of particle physics,

despite the other laws of physics re action/reaction. It will further show that JFK received the best possible autopsy that 3 unqualified doctors could ever provide. Finally, it will salute the towering 26 volume W Report as the best work ever produced by a group intent on convincing the public of the guilt of one man, of no motive, in killing a US President. 

 Truth, justice, integrity for all. No, really?
