  1. Eugene Dinkin: The Saga of an Unsung Hero

    This just in from the obvious department... Swaying public opinion using "social" media - newspapers - so that an otherwise horrible event would be more acceptable and even welcomed... should it "somehow" occur hmmmm, now WHERE have we seen that happen in the last year?? I'll have to disagree with you George... like claiming Bolden was CIA to give Chicago more credibility... no dice. Plus he was right... CIA disinfo usually only has a shred of truth to support the lies...
  2. "Lack of reports? You think the FBI will report "Oswald's vault tampered with - all evidence within tainted" ?? We've got eye-witness reports of Oswald in Ping Tung and in Japan at the same time... backed by marine logs and marine sick bay records... We've got Lee's CO informing us he left the marines in March 1959 and all his records were sent to DC. We've got 2 entire sets of marines who knew one man and didn't know the other... and provable so. We've got an iceberg and all you bring to the party is 3 ice cubes and old fritos... Don't bother me anymore with your lack of evidence and opinionated doubts... You've got a mountain to climb and it's obvious you have no rope...
  3. Tracy, you suggest that nothing nefarious happened to the casket in 18 years... nothing to the contents... The condition of the casket and vault suggests otherwise. If you can eliminate any other explanation for YOUR rebuttal, in a timeline that removes that possibility, provide it... if not, you have your arguments and H&L ours... A destroyed vault and cracked open casket does not bode well for "undisturbed"... Readers - once again - can decide for themselves.
  4. The Biggest Lies.... Untangled

    I would suggest the POV that the CIA was the instigator of "Oswald in Mexico" which puts Hoover on the immediate defensive. I don't think "Patsy" was the thought when Oswald starts working with Bannister... but "infiltration and intel" - just so happens that the bona fides for THAT job put Oswald squarely in the crosshairs for patsy status.... Real question... Were Chicago and Tampa real or part of the set up in Dallas?
  5. Not that paranoid Michael... just have a realistic view of history and the things men did.... All I asked for was a chronology. you are 100% sure nothing nefarious happened to that vault, casket or body... good for you in your certainty. What I have found to be axiomatic is Blum's prophetic American Watergate laws, one of which states: “No matter how paranoid or conspiracy-minded you are, what the government is actually doing is worse than you imagine.”. You describe a personal experience as if it bears on this one... Vaults USUALLY do not break, they might lose a seal and the insides get wet but crushed from above? Vaults USUALLY last tens if not hundreds of years - according to funeral home directors. So the FACT the vault is not intact does give one pause... it does not make the possibility, impossible at all... You really don't know how spycraft works.... do you? may want to brush up on that history before you make declarations as if you KNOW something to be true; when all you're doing is expressing an uneducated opinion... Learn what spies do Michael... how and why... try a library or the internet... Obviously plenty for you and Bernie and Tracy to learn
  6. Basic flaw? Simply question then Tracy... What occurred at that gravesite between 1963 and the exhumation? You can start the chronology in Jan 1964... Show us how, despite there having been a vault of concrete poured as if usual practice, this casket didn't last but a few years. Alex Hoyt, Family Service Manager, Funeral Director Answered Nov 21 2015 Most all (I'd say 99% of) cemeteries require a concrete vault which is set into the grave first. The casket is then lowered into the vault and a heavy lid is placed on top. The vaults are made of varying quality and interior linings. Any vault above a grave liner (the most basic) has a tongue-in-groove type lid - inside which has a thick epoxy-like substance that seals the lid in place. That being said, a casket placed in a vault in dry conditions could easily last a century without noticeable wear. Many factors come into play - wood caskets will eventually rot, metal caskets will eventually rust. What do you suppose it was that cracked the vault and exposed the corpse inside the casket??? When do you think that happened? Do you see it as an impossibility that "something" could have happened to that body during that time? Is it beyond the CIA or FBI to CYA in this situation? Tracy, if this was the one and only thing supporting H&L we'd have a discussion... it's not. When you finally come to grips with 1000 pages and tens of thousands of source documents supporting H&L... then add in first person testimony that you and others can only frown at and claim "mistakes"... You understanding or not this is no skin off my nose... Bernie pretending to have contributed here in some way remains the real joke. The little mouse in the corner yelling "ME TOO" so as to maybe get some of the credit ?? IDK. And by far the worst of all is this belief that something like this could not have happened... like thinking political assassination doesn't occur in the USA... Thank goodness for there being at least 2 sides to every story... you guys can post your dribble forever and not worry about ever being close to the truth...
  7. Stick it Tracy.... Bernie can't help but throwing in barbs even when not an ounce of the work here is his... At least you do the work.... BM remains a waste of breath, time and effort.
  8. The TSBD roof

    My pleasure Pat... Mr. BAKER - We had to walk up another flight of stairs to get up to the top floor.Mr. BELIN - To get up to the roof?Mr. BAKER - Yes, sir.Mr. BELIN - When you got off on the seventh floor or the top floor--Mr. BAKER - Yes, sir.Mr. BELIN - Did you notice whether or not the other elevator was there?Mr. BAKER - No, sir; I didn't.Mr. BELIN - You didn't notice. You got off the east elevator and then what did you do?Mr. BAKER - We walked up the flight of stairs to the top.Mr. BELIN - To the top. What did you do when you got to the top?Mr. BAKER - We went out on the roof. Mr. BAKER - At that time I went on back. Mr. Truly was standing over here on this northwest corner and we descended on the stairs there.Mr. BELIN - You went from the stairs to the roof to where, to the top floor of the building?Mr. BAKER - Yes, sir.Mr. BELIN - What did you do when you got to the top floor of the building?Mr. BAKER - We walked on down one more flight of stairs and then we caught the same elevator back down.Mr. DULLES - The top floor was the seventh floor, is it not?Mr. BAKER - Well, you have one flight of stairs going from the top floor on up.Mr. DULLES - Yes.Mr. BAKER - And then we caught the elevator back down, the same elevator that we took up.Mr. BELIN - When you referred to one flight of stairs, are you referring to the flight of stairs from the roof to the top floor that you took or the flight of stairs from the top floor to the next to the top floor?Mr. BAKER - Well, there are two flights of stairs there. The one from the roof down to the top floor and then there is another one there. Mr. BELIN - Officer Baker, I am going to hand you what the court reporter, what the Commission reporter, has marked as Exhibit 507 which purports to be a diagram of the seventh floor of the Texas School Book Depository Building and on that diagram you will see at the top the marks of two elevators and then, what looks to be the south, a stairway marked "Ladder to the roof."Mr. BAKER - Yes, sir.Mr. BELIN - What is the fact as to whether or not this stairway marked "Ladder to the roof" is the stairway that you took to go to the roof?Mr. BAKER - Yes, sir; it would be. Mr. TRULY. We ran up a little stairway that leads out through a little penthouse on to the roof. Mr. BELIN. What did you do on the roof? Mr. TRULY. We ran immediately to the west side of the building. There is a wall around the building that you cannot see over without getting your foot between the mortar of the stones and, or some such toehold. We did that and looked over the ground and the railroad tracks below. There we saw many officers and a lot of spectators, people running up and down. Mr. BELIN. Did the officer say to you why he wanted to go up to the roof? Mr. TRULY. No. At that time, he didn't. Mr. BELIN. Did he ever prior to meeting you again on March 20th tell you why he wanted to go on the roof? Mr. TRULY. No, sir. Mr. BELIN. Where did you think the shots came from? Mr. TRULY. I thought the shots came from the vicinity of the railroad or the WPA project, behind the WPA project west of the building. Mr. BELIN. Did you have any conversation with the officer that you can remember? About where you thought the shots came from? Mr. TRULY. Yes. When--some time in the course, I believe, after we reached the roof, the officer looked down over the boxcars and the railroad tracks and the crowd below. Then he looked around the edge of the roof for any evidence of anybody being there. And then looked up at the runways and the big sign on the-roof.He saw nothing.He came over. And some time about then I said, "Officer, I think"--let's back up.I believe the officer told me as we walked down into the seventh floor, "Be careful, this man will blow your head off."And I told the officer that I didn't feel like the shots came from the building.I said, "I think we are wasting our time up here," or words to that effect, "I don't believe these shots came from the building."
  9. Jerry Vale is back... Hmmm, let's see. Spy stuff and your understanding remains mutually exclusive BM.... You simply aint gonna learn what you don't wanna know... la--la--la.... LMAO.... if anyone would know the smell of a rotting cultish fantasy Bernie, each time you take the stage... Stay with the music you pathetic little lost boy...if you suck as bad at that as you do this, that rotting smell of your "offerings" are surely horrendous by now... Now run back to your little sandbox, ROKC, and get a few expletives and zingers from the boys... we know you and original thought are also mutually exclusive... bu-bye now...

  12. The Biggest Lies.... Untangled

    From that notebook we get the name JAMES MALLEY... From a reading of MALLEY's testimony... He was in charge of the FBI investigation despite them having sent Rogge and Thompson... Malley in control of evidence - given the work of the other FBI agents in Dallas - seems to imply duplicity again... J. Edgar Hoover's testimony does not include the name James MALLEY while Hosty is of course mentioned numerous times FWIW Mr. MCDONALD. Mr. Malley, regarding Rogge and Thompson, you just said that they worked closely with you on the case. Mr. MALLEY. They did in the early stages. They were the two individuals who were sent to Dallas to write the first two memorandums that I told you about Mr. MALLEY. As far as the actual assassination is concerned, it was definitely in the General Investigative Division. When you say who is responsible, are you referring to what section it was being handled and what supervisor was primarily responsible? Mr. MCDONALD. Which person was primarily responsible at the top to begin with? Mr. MALLEY. Well, because of what happened when I got back from Dallas I would say that I had to be. Mr. McDONALD. You were asking for additional agent personnel, and as reflected in these memos, at the top level, at least there was an opinion being formed that the case essentially was wrapped up. Mr. MALLEY. I won't agree with you because I don't know what they were doing in Washington. I know where I was and I know what had been done, and I think you may be interpreting remarks about wanting to get something out to the public to let them know what had been developed up to that time as a misinterpretation of what the Bureau intended to do later. Mr. McDONALD. I will quote one more memorandum to you, and that is dated 29 November 1963, which is found in the Senate Intelligence Committee's, the Church Committee's, Book 5 Report on page 34. In it, the memorandum is by Mr. Hoover, recounting a telephone conversation he had that day with President Johnson. And he says, "I advised the President that we hoped to have the investigation wrapped up today but probably won't have it before the first of the week, as another angle had developed. Again we are getting an example of at the top level the case being in a sense completed. Now, again, from your Dallas perspective does this jibe with what you were doing in Dallas? Mr. MALLEY. Well, again, I say that when people say that they hoped to have it completed and so on, I don't think for a minute they were talking about having every facet fully and exhaustively investigated. I think what they are saying is that, based on the information that was available at that time, the essential facts of the investigation had been developed. It doesn't mean it was over by any means.
  13. Funny thing Tracy... there is an alternate explanation for virtually every human occurrence in known history... Depends on who is telling the story and which history is to be "allowed". Amazing you don't already know this... ?? In the world of spycraft one expects to see multiple reasonable explanation for the same activity... Again Tracy, have you literally learned nothing about the world of intelligence and how it works? Here Tracy, this series runs from the American Revolution to today - and then there's this https://fas.org/irp/offdocs/int022.html The Evolution of the U.S. Intelligence Community-An Historical Overview or Van Deman and his efforts to bring about the first military intelligence agency... Tracy - you and a handful remain so tunnel-visioned in your need to support Parker's "anti" H&L-thesis cause H&L in reality destroys his arguments... we get it. What continues to amaze is how little you seem to know about everything else that leads to these kinds of plans in the midst of the height of the Cold War. You remain AMAZED at the plan of human trying to do evil to each other Amazing and Pathetic all at the same time... Counter Intelligence from WWII to Present Chapters 1-4.pdf Captain Ralph H. Van Deman - Father of American Intelligence.pdf
  14. The southern boy who came to NY had a southern accent... The boy who returned from NY in 1954 no longer had the accent and never redeveloped it during the remaining years of his life in the south. Those who know a thing or two say English was this man's 2nd language... FWIW.
