  1. One thing that I recently thought of if, it was applicable to the films showing Prayerman is more or less a substitution of the seemingly? impossible task of computer enhancement of said footage. I hope someone well versed in the field of video technology reads this, before the idea is summarily dismissed by non-experts. Colorization....I know enough about the technology to realize cinematographers will colorize B&W films, using actual color photos of a certain area or event. Does anyone else think this is a applicable area. If so or even if not, I would be curious to see what people thi
  2. July 21, 1998 Amarillo Globe Longtime Dallas police reporter dies The Associated Press DALLAS (AP) - Johnny Rutledge, a longtime police reporter for The Dallas Morning News whose white Stetson often caused others to mistake him for a lawman himself, died Sunday. He was 74 and had battled emphysema and throat cancer for five years, The News reported. Rutledge covered Jack Ruby's killing of Lee Harvey Oswald, the man suspected of assassinating President Kennedy, in 1963. He was called to testify as a prosecution witness at Ruby's trial, said his son, Daniel M. Rutledge of Bryan, because
  3. Jim, reading what you wrote reminded me of what Jack Ruby said when the Warren Commissioner's visited his jail cell before he died. Not sure if it is verbatim, but it was something along thelines of.....I am as innocent as all of you gathered here. Sarcasm?
  4. For Jim DiEugenio's new thread. http://www.dailykos.com/story/2007/07/04/353992/-Bizarre-1979-plot-to-Assassinate-President-Jimmy-Carter#
  5. The book below, was initially written by Gisevius after World War II and the Nuremberg verdicts were recorded; the foreword was written by Allen Dulles. To the Bitter End: An Insider's Account of the Plot to Kill Hitler, 1933-1944 By Hans Bernd Gisevius When the book was reissued it contained some updated material by Prof. Peter Hoffmann, who has written extensively about the resistance movements against Hitler. Ironically, Hoffmann is associated with McGill University, which said institution has more than a casual connection to the world of JFK lore. http://www.mcgill.ca/history/pet
  6. Here's George Michael Evica's article Perfect Cover A Theory of the JFK Assassination: What Happened on November 22, 1963 By George Michael Evica Based upon a work in progress: The Iron Sights: New Evidence and Analysis in the Assassination of J.F.K. (From The Assassination Chronicles Volume 1, Issue 4, December 1995) Security stripping of the president on a massive scale occurred on November 22nd, 1963. From Love Field (where the motorcade was “re-organized”) to Dealey Plaza (a model of insecurity) the president was rendered mortally vulnerable. The deliberate security strip
  7. I, at one time owned a copy of the book by Gary Wean, to me the book was not very credible...I never found any newspaper stories regarding Decker, Tower and Audie Murphy's trip to Mexico; not to say it didn't happen, but if there was an actual relationship between Decker and Audie Murphy, the Texas newspapers wouldn't have a reason to keep it a secret years before the JFK Assassination. Wean's book made extensive use of the word "Mishpucka." It seemed too much to me. The "Mishpucka," in Wean's account seemed to control practically Western civilization. The same sort of farce that the Gemstone
  8. It is remarkable how little I disagree with your comments, it would be worth a moment to point out that what I hope is my contribution to JFK research, is not so much to influence perceptions but, in the words of the late Gerry Patrick Hemming to "keep it real;" So, in that sense what is incumbent upon me is to make sure everyone who reads my posts is "aware" of what is in the universe of facts, speculation and leads, with an emphasis on the latter. So, I am not advocating a particular belief as much as letting individuals do their own thinking. As they say in the movie JFK...Clay Shaw....
  9. I do not believe there is any one opinion, or interpretation of "facts" that can make two Mexican officials description of a "blond Oswald" fall into the same first-day evidence subsequently dismissed as inaccurate... What were those discarded statements? Weapon described as "Argentine Mauser," 30.06 rifle, Oswald-Ruby ties alleged, decades later it is asserted that when Jack Ruby called 1026 N. Beckley and the line was busy, Jack would call with the pretext of an emergency, and the operator would cut-in. Obviously, the point-counterpoint has went on ad infimitum. Well, there is another ac
  10. There was, according to the Fort Worth Star-Telegram, November 34, 1963, a 14 year old named Alan Smith who witnessed the JFK shooting on November 22, 1963. The article didn't mention his having a bicycle, but did say he had his parents permission to stay home for the drive through Dallas. He was, in his words about 10 feet from JFK's limo at the time of the shots...He was a ninth-grade student at Stockard Junior High School...FWST "Boy Tell's of Seeing Shooting" I didn't realize Chris Scally had written about this http://www.maryferrell.org/showDoc.html?docId=146599&search=Bicycle#relP
  11. Mae Brussell was the penultimate researcher into ODESSA, and similar areas, and stands in need of updating and fact-checking. My own efforts in this area are well documented on the Forum. There is one book [below] that mentions Werner Von Alvensleben and Hjalmar Schacht as inhabiting the same Nazi circles. http://www.amazon.com/German-Big-Business-Rise-Hitler/dp/0195042352 Alvensleben's son, of course was friends with D. H. Byrd and the latter credited Hans Udet as saving him from trouble when he traveled to Germany before Pearl Harbor. A long time ago, I was, and still am, fascinated by

  15. Here is the section from No More Silence, containing the Harry D. Holmes interview. Harry D. Holmes U.S. Postal Inspector “In the case of Oswald, I don’t think that he would have ever confessed; he was that adamant. He was so direct. He’d look you right in the eye and ask you a question. He had an uncanny ability to determine or guess when I had evidence or when I was fishing… In fact, I thought in my own head that probably in Russia he had been trained to evade questions and be able to keep himself composed to guard what he wanted to keep secret…” Born in Indian Territory in 1
