  1. How could [EDIT ALERT: the bad guys and gals] reasonably expect to pull off "The Coverup" if they knew [EDIT ALERT: Oswald] might be captured on film, watching the motorcade? "It didn't matter to them because they planned for him to be murdered-by-cop in about an hour, anyway" ??? What if good footage of Oswald-in-the-entryway emerged after he'd been put six feet under? Why didn't the bad guys confiscate the films of Altgens, Wiegman, Couch, Darnell, ... ? (Yes, I know PM isn't visible in Altgens 6, but he could have been.) -- TG Tangential Questions: Was Dr Pepper available in the 2nd floor lunchroom's "coke-cola" (sic) machine, or only in the DP Machine on the 1st floor, next to the white fridge? Was getting change for the DP Machine on the first floor Oswald's only reason for going to the 2nd floor practically every day during lunch time? (Is it true that Dr Pepper was Oswald's favorite coke-cola? If so, was the DP Machine mysteriously empty that day, or maybe even "jammed"?)

    "My New Thread"

    Moved here from Andrej's thread: Andrej, Please answer the following question: Did you give your "Prayer Man" such a freakishly long right leg in your graphic simply so "he" would not have to significantly tilt the axis of his body in the general direction of the camera, and therefore could "appear" to be (compared to 6' 1.5" 6' 0.5" Frazier in Darnell) an Oswald-like 5' 9.5" dude who just happened to be uncomfortably and dangerously standing with one foot on the top step and the other on the landing? In other words, wasn't that the only way you could roughly depict "Prayer Man" (as "he" appears in both Wiegman and Darnell) in such a way that might convince EF members and guests that "Prayer Man" was, indeed, Lee Harvey Oswald? Why did you give "Prayer Man" such a freakishly long and disproportionate-to-his-torso right leg, Andrej? So "Oswald" wouldn't have to awkwardly and very noticeably "dip" his right shoulder towards the viewer in order to compensate for the top step's 7-inch "rise"? In short (pardon my unintentional pun), isn't it more reasonable to assume that the Wiegman and Darnell "Prayer Man" was a shorter-than-Oswald-person who was standing much more naturally with both feet on the landing, but close to that front step? And, in fact, that Sean Murphy's "Prayer Man" could very well have been the "Sarah" whom Buell Wesley Frazier, in a 2013 interview, said turned towards him (and he towards her) right after the assassination, as is obvious that Murphy's "Prayer Man" has already done during the 30-second-long interval between the end of the Wiegman clip and the beginning of Couch-Darnell? -- TG
  3. Yes, No, or IDK? FWIW, Nosenko's the guy who told his CIA interrogators a couple of weeks after the assassination that the KGB had neither tried to recruit Oswald in the USSR, nor asked him about the U2 spy plane or the radar equipment, etc, he'd worked with in the Marine Corps. I say Nosenko was a false defector to the U.S. What do you say? -- Tommy

    30 Unavoidable Questions: Yuri Nosenko

    Question for moderators: Is the near-simultaneous posting, by one member (in this case Michael Clark), of the same document on three different threads within the rules of the Forum? Question for Michael: Will you now "cover" my legitimate question with your same "torture" document post, above, but of course with the notation "I should have mentioned that this document is part of the recent release," as you so covered my rebuttal to you on another Angleton-Nosenko type thread? -- T.G. Shall we have an oh-so-clever "bumping war"? Bump's in your court.

    Good on you, Michael! By the way, are you still counting the number of my edits? (Talk about a full-time job!) I feel badly about "baiting" you unto doing that, but hey, that's what The Agency told me to do ... -- T.G.
  8. Thomas Graves

    Trump and the Unspeakable?

    Yeah, Michael, I got that. Written in 1970, three years after (possible mole?) Richard Kovich and the Leonard McCoy - John Hart clutch had deviously subverted and controverted the true and accurate work and conclusions of Bagley, Scotty Miler, JJA, et al., regarding false defector Yuri Nosenko. BFD (Bunk Finely Disseminated) You are aware, aren't you, that former Army Intelligence analyst John Newman, author of Oswald and the CIA, has read Bagley's works and is sufficiently impressed by them to have given some presentations based on Spy Wars and Spymaster (the latter co-written with former KGB general, Sergei Kondrashev), and has even been able to convince the Venerable Bede, himself -- Peter Dale Scott -- that Nosenko was a false defector? In retrospect, then, given the situation that Bagley, Miler, and JJA, et al., were in vis-a-vis a possibly "programmed" Nosenko (who almost "broke" once btw), one could reasonably and humanely say that their subjecting him to a rather austere living environment, and ... gasp ... questioning him over and over again on certain points, and maybe even ... gasp ... doing so at all hours of the night and day, ... was justified, yes? I'll try to find and post here Bagley's detailed refutation of the "torture" claims, so in the meantime, why don't you just take an extra dose of that Gas-Ex , Michael? Because in my humble opinion, you're really starting to stink the place up. -- T.G.

    Trump and the Unspeakable?

    Michael, It's likely that you, sir, are full of beans. Warning: almost a sentence fragment coming up: As are (or were, if deceased) Harrington, Leonard McCoy, John Hart, Bruce Solie, and Cleveland Cram, et al. Why don't you take some Gas-Ex and then read Bagley's Spy Wars, or at least his 35-page PDF Ghosts of the Spy Wars. Paul Brancato finally read the latter, and almost kinda thanked me for having suggested it to him, iirc. https://www.tandfonline.com/doi/full/10.1080/08850607.2014.962362 Totally blew me away. -- T.G.

    Trump and the Unspeakable?

    Yes, Paul, you're right. It was probably just an overreaction to James' insinuating that I'm a fascist and that I support genocide. Shall I delete it? Regardless, do you have anything of substance to say about my post? -- T.G.

    James, What does any of this have to do with (admittedly corrupt, but hey what do you expect after 70 years of institutionalized cronyism?) Yeltsin's retaining a couple of American political advisers in 1996 to help to help him spiff up his image and improve the palatability of his message in an election campaign? As regards what I read, I try to limit myself to those news sources which have, regardless of their left-or right bias, "High" factual reporting according to mediabiasfactcheck. com. Needless to say your beloved Global Research based "Information Clearing House" isn't one of them because GR itself is categorized as being "Conspiracy and Pseudoscience" and as having only "Mixed" factual reporting. Finally, regarding that evil, evil Tennent H. Bagley, if he were alive he'd probably say to you, "If it's true as you say, James, that 'the Cold War died in 1985,' why then did the Soviets/Russians continue to wage so many "active measures" and "strategic deception" counterintelligence operations against us and our allies?" -- T.G. PS Genocide? You wanna talk genocide? Okay then, how about what EDIT ALERT: your buddy Stalin did to the Ukrainians in the 1930s, James? https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Holodomor (To give just one example.)

    Paul, Please freshen my memory. Which one was that? Something to do with evil, evil, evil de Vosjoli and that evil, evil, evil "Brandy"? Which past grievances on this forum should I forget about, and in regards to whom? -- T.G. You mean you don't come to the world famous JFK Assassination Debate Forum to debate, but to learn, Paul? Fantastic! Have any idea how much teaching, aka debating, showing, linking, baiting, cajoling, and outright arguing with you and others I had to do to get you to read "Ghosts Wars," Paul? (I'm proud of you, by the way, and I truly mean that; I didn't think you would ever read it.)

    Good work, "Davy." I learned a long time ago that it's best "not to confuse James with the facts," because all you do is expend a lot of energy proving or disproving something to him (which he rarely if ever acknowledges, btw), and then he disappears for awhile, be it a month, a year, or five years, only to come back to the Forum eventually and reassert the same wrong "fact," all over again. I mean, I mean, I mean, to my way of thinking, it's almost as though Vladimir Putin trained him to do that! -- T.G.

    Trump and the Unspeakable?

    How have I "baited" James on this thread, Paul? I mean, maybe I have, I don't know. Is that a bad thing to do? If so, does he ever do that sort of thing? What's the official definition of "to bait," in the context of an Internet forum on a controversial subject, anyway? To trap somebody through rhetoric and logic into a position which they are unable or unwilling to try to defend? Don't they teach that in high school debating classes? -- T.G. PS How about James' insisting on another thread a few months ago that Rudolf Hess was not a spy for the Soviets, and telling me quite rudely, "You don't know enough about the Hess spy case to be able to debate it intelligently with me, so I'm going to leave now," or words to that effect? Given that little pleasantry by James, what do you think about his subsequent disappearing and refusing to reply to me when I posted a few days later that I'd done some research and found out that many historians, including our very own John Simpkin, now believe that Hess was a long-term spy? Which James is yet to respond to. You tell me, Paul, was that "baiting"on James' part, or did I end up winning that little debate?

    James, In case you haven't noticed, life is chock-a-block full of "either/or" choices. "Would you like another serving of apple pie a-la mode, or another half-gallon of chocolate pudding, Jimmy? I'm sorry, sweetie, but you can't have both this time. Aww, don't cry, honey. Doctors orders, not mine." Bummer, huh? So, I ask you once again, James: Would you have preferred to see the Communist Party's candidate, Gennady Zyuganov, win the 1996 Russian presidential election? Yes, or No, James? Da? Really?? "Zyuganov enthusiastically supported the (2014) annexation of Crimea by Russia as well as the (2014) pro-Russian insurgency (in eastern Ukraine)." -- Wikipedia Also, James, did Boris Yeltsin hire those evil, evil American advisers, or did your favorite bugbear, the The Deep State / National Security State/ Military Industrial Intelligence Cabal, force them upon him? (Don't run away and hide, now, like you do all too often.) -- T.G.
  17. Thomas Graves

    Trump and the Unspeakable?

    Cute avoidance reaction, James. Unbearable stress always make you yawn? Regardless, guess what??? I just now skimmed those two precious articles I promised you I would read! So, lemme ask you a question: Would you have preferred that the Communist had won that Russian election, James? Why? -- T.G.
  18. Thomas Graves

    Trump and the Unspeakable?

    James, I know you aren't paranoid or anything, but have you considered the possibility that, as regards your precious newspaper articles, that I am neither "underhanded" (isn't that a synonym for "dishonest," James?) nor "untrustworthy" (isn't that another synonym for "dishonest," James?), but that I am just pain too lazy and/or bogged down with other things to have read them, yet? Or is that a too mundane, and therefore implausible, explanation for you? I promise that I will, though, James, but probably not the article you posted from the "Global Research" affiliate or subsidiary or whatever it is. See my earlier post as to why that is the case. In the meantime, please don't flatter yourself by fantasizing that my life resolves around that highly gaseous planet, "Jumbo-Duh." Somewhere, way WAY WAY out there in the outer solar system. -- T.G.

    Trump and the Unspeakable?

    James, Maybe you've even worse than Morley, come to think of it. I mean, if that's even possible. Where in the hell have I ever even suggested that Phillips and Dulles were "fine people"? As regards the "evil things" they undoubtedly did in their jobs, do you think they were up against Boy Scouts or The Little Sisters Of The Poor in trying to fend off and/or subvert the KGB and the GRU? I gotta ask you James, does Vladimir Putin pay you, or do you spread the garbage you do for free? -- T.G. PS It's interesting that, in the Part 2 video that I watched, you couldn't even bring yourself to clap for John Newman at the end of his recent "Spy Wars" presentation in San Francisco. Was it because he'd convinced Peter Dale Scott that Yuri Nosenko was a false defector, after all?

    DiEugenio posted: Then, (after supporting Boris Yeltsin during the 1993 crisis in the Kremlin -- T.G.) Bill Clinton went even further with directly intervening in the 1996 election with advisors and tons of money. I guess Bagley does not mention this so you do not know about it. How about this then: http://www.informationclearinghouse.info/46233.htm >>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>.>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>> James, You gotta be kidding me. INFORMATION CLEARING HOUSE? I mean, I mean, I mean .... isn't that put out by ... gasp ... GLOBAL RESEARCH? Oh My God, I think I'm gonna die this time. Somebody bring me an oxygen tank, quick! https://mediabiasfactcheck.com/global-research/ -- T.G.

    James, You haven't read that "CIA guy's" book yet, have you? And you never will, will you? Undersized gonads, James, or "don't need to"? Already got the straight skinny from the likes of RT and Oliver Stone? -- T.G.

    James, Sorry, ... uhh ... you showed me what? Up? Hysterical Laughing Out Loud! OMG, Gimme a minute to catch my breath! ........ Okay, .... whew! Dang, I almost passed out from lack oxygen there for a minute..... ....... Regardless, (gasp, ... gasp ...) care to return to that thread in which we were talking about Rudolf Hess? How about Nosenko, then? Wanna "debate" some more on Nosenko, James? Fedora? Okay, then, how about how the KGB uncovered Popov? Penkovsky? Aww, come on, James. I promise not to work you over too bad.... I mean, you do have medical insurance, don't you?
  23. Thomas Graves

    National Enquirer shocker

    Huh? Regardless, the part I deleted was a very interesting, indeed, accusation coming from James "Full Disclosure" DiEugenio. (sarcasm) -- T.G. Post Script: James is nearly always almost as bad in that regard as is his (in my humble opinion) intellectually dishonest "bud," Jefferson Morley, is in his abomination "The Ghost". Seen my one-star review of it on Amazon, yet?
  24. Thomas Graves

    Trump and the Unspeakable?

    Geez Tommy, would these qualify as Bagley's "active measures". As per Varnell, the CIA redid the plan at JFK's request in mid March. He thought it looked too much like a World War II operation. This information is contained in the declassified Kirkpatrick Report. Which is still the best compendium of information on the Bay of Pigs that I know of. (See Peter Kornbluh, Bay of Pigs Declassified, pp 125-27) James, Where do you get your "info"? ZeroHedge? Or is it too far to the Right for you? -- T.G.
