  1. The thing is, Newman describes the early undercover leafleting at places like Tulane, and a liberal anti nuke group. One of the students at Tulane recalled the name Hidell on the handbill. (p. 311) Also, in the later open phase, there was the ITM incident. Where Oswald hired a coupe of other people from the UE office and the handbills were delivered to him by Quiroga.
  2. John: No, these two film are documentaries. The first on JFK, and the second on alternative energy. Oliver and producer Rob WIlson could make a lot more money doing features. But apparently he wants to do something meaningful.
  3. I thought he did fairly well myself. The thing is I have seen interviews when the interviewer is not antagonistic, and its much more educational. Which, of course, is what the NY Times does not want.
  4. Greg: Everything I have written about the Paines is based in fact. No lynching. I would argue that it was they who lynched Oswald.
  5. https://www.nytimes.com/interactive/2020/07/13/magazine/oliver-stone-interview.html The NY Times always is antagonistic with Oliver. And here we go again.
  6. BTW, why was Ruth Paine stunned that Oswald wanted her to contact an attorney for him? She says she tried to call John Abt. He was on vacation in the Connecticut woods. When the press caught up with him, he said he had no record of any communication, directly or indirectly, from Oswald. (Harold Weisberg, Whitewash, p. 139). Did Abt have an answering service? Did Ruth try and call him? But here is the capper. Oswald said that if he could not get Abt, he would like an ACLU attorney. When the ACLU lawyer, Greg Olds, got to the DPD HQ they told him Oswald had declined any lawyer. (ibid, p. 140) Later, Olds regretted not meeting Oswald in person.
  7. It was a shame the ARRB never interviewed either one of them. Carol Hewett volunteered to fly up to their offices on her own dime and go over briefing books she would prepare. Since she was a lawyer and knew the ARRB law, she would have been precise about what to ask to stay within the defined boundaries. But there is no doubt that the Minox camera and the BYP, and the rifle would have all been allowed. It was bad enough that the HSCA never interviewed them, but the ARRB?
  8. To John Butler: As Newman notes in his book, Oswald was involved in two leafleting programs. One was undercover, this was likely in June and July. Then he breaks into the public in August. Therefore the Jones incident was likely related to the undercover phase. To Paul: I really do not know why Ferrie took that excursion to Texas. His excuse was so stupid as to defy description. And I also do not really know who told him to do it. If I had to guess, that is all it would be is guessing. Which I do not like to do at this stage of the game. But Dr. Wager makes a good point.
  9. As Nancy Wertz noted, the Paines were still at it in 1993, in addition to Mike Paine claiming the Minox camera, there is also this: 1963: Mike tells the FBI he had never seen Oswald with a weapon. 1993 for Gus Russo and PBS Frontline: Oswald showed him one of the BYP the first time they met in April of 1963. 🤮
  10. Ruth apparently did not care if the police had a search warrant and somehow knew they were coming, from John Kelin "Praise from a future Generation". Mr. Rose.... just as soon as we walked up on the porch, Ruth Paine came to the door. She apparently recognized us - she said, "I've been expecting you all," and we identified ourselves, and she said, "Well, I've been expecting you to come out. Come right on in." Mr. Ball. Did she say why she had been expecting you? Mr. Rose. She said, "Just as soon as I heard where the shooting happened, I knew there would be someone out." If Ruth Paine "knew," as soon as she heard where the assassination occurred, that the police would be visiting her home, then something doesn't add up. At that point, according to her own testimony, she thought Oswald was working at a second TSBD building - not the one at 411 Elm Street, where the Warren Commission ultimately placed Oswald and his rifle, but one that was located several blocks from Dealey Plaza.
  11. Trump is having. a tweet storm over Steele's problems https://www.independent.co.uk/news/world/americas/us-politics/trump-twitter-russia-report-christopher-steele-mi6-a9613711.html
  12. Paul: There is one major point you leave out. The last step of the Clinton/Jackson incident. Which would be Oswald's visit to the hospital. But I will grant you that Shaw and Ferrie did not necessarily know what that was about.
  13. This is why I really hope Chris finishes that article for K and K.
  14. Does it really seem possible that Oswald would have left small file cabinets. AND FPCC flyers? That would mean he brought them home to his apartment in New Orleans. He then left them laying around for over a month, because after the court proceeding in New Orleans, I don't see any record of his leafleting again. But yet, why would he do that when he had an office at Banister's? I mean what was James Arthus getting rid of at 544 Camp Street then?
