  1. Don’t forget to click on the highlighted text within the interview to see more snide footnotes from the interviewer repeating the official story. But regardless, that was a good discussion from Oliver.
  2. The author of that piece wrote another article about 'books about JFK' in 2017, and enthused about Robert Dallek. But I don't feel the need to investigate his writing much further.
  3. Great article by Rob and I appreciate the effort Rob made to illuminate Stanley Marks' life and work. All I could really do when reading Stanley's observations was to nod affirmatively and think, jeez, this guy feels (or obviously felt) about things the same way that we do. But Stanley was quicker to catch on to things than pretty much every other writer. It would have been a pleasure to chat to Stanley if he was around, but I took some solace from the photo of him with his wife Ethel. He had a great wife and a loving family and he lived into his 80's. That's pretty good.
  4. Jim - reading through your article, half your points in it seem to come from Warren Commission witnesses saying, yeah, he did speak Russian, and he spoke it really well. Were any of them coached? Were any Warren Commission witnesses ever coached? Were those ones coached? Beats me. But does that question ever occur when judging Warren Commission testimony that supports the official story? I’ll have to go through Walt Brown’s chronology again - a mammoth task - as one of Brown’s regular points throughout the work is that, despite commentary suggesting otherwise, Oswald couldn’t speak Russian. And he digs up a bunch of instances where LHO could have, or should have, or was asked to, but didn’t. And could assets or dupes who weren’t agents occasionally do the same sort of thing that an agent might do, thereby sometimes muddying the water as to who was an agent, and who was an asset doing much the same thing? I’d argue the answer lies somewhere between ‘sometimes’ and ‘not often’, but doesn’t make it all the way over to ‘never’. Enjoying this discussion regardless.
  5. The text below was posted by Peter Dale Scott on Facebook today. I know Bill Kelly has written about this topic before. https://aarclibrary.org/8-june-2020-update-on-aarcs-petition-for-certiorari-to-the-united-states-supreme-court/ “From the petition: "AARC seeks documents related to a briefing of the Joint Chiefs of Staff on September 25, 1963 by CIA Cuban operations head Desmond Fitzgerald. Fitzgerald informed the Joint Chiefs that CIA was studying in detail a parallel in history to develop an approach to dealing with Fidel Castro- the July 20, 1944 plot by German military officers to assassinate Adolf Hitler. " In other words, on 9/25/63, Desmond Fitzgerald, a long-time suspect in the case who at the time was withholding important relevant information from the Kennedys, discussed with the Joint Chiefs a plan, parallel to Valkyrie, for assassinating a Chief of State from inside his own administration. This is worth watching.“
  6. No, and digging the info back up, I was inexact. Northwoods comes from the club's location, with Northwood being a name and locale likely familiar to the club's members. Northwood in Baltimore, Maryland, from Wikipedia. The Burning Tree Club in Maryland, from Wikipedia. Newman on the Burning Tree Club and Northwoods - this might have been posted here on the forum before. After Newman posted the above, I saw that a private history of the club and its members was floating around, pictured below (and I see it's two volumes, not three). The two books were selling online for hundreds of dollars. Once alerted to the listing, Newman bought the full set, so if anyone is now well placed to dig into the Burning Tree Club further and investigate the connections, it's him.
  7. I’m following Newman’s work with interest and have read two of the three volumes and a good chunk of the third. I’m reserving judgment until he gets closer to the end of the series though. He has at least two books to go, possibly three depending what he digs up and wants to talk about. Newman did imply in a good Facebook thread that volume four, ARMAGEDDON, is where things really start to dig in deep. Side note - Newman found the elite country club where various Joint Chiefs and others had hung out as they put together the Northwoods plan - Northwoods was named after the club - and mentioned he was researching it. I Googled the name and found that a three volume history of the club had been privately published among the members decades ago, and sent Newman a link to a case bound copy that was for sale (and they weren’t cheap). Newman bought the books, and anything he found of interest in them will appear in future volumes. He implied it was quite a group of characters who had been meeting there.
  8. The next instalment of Bill Simpich's essay is here. The Twelve Who Built the Oswald Legend Part 1: Mother, Meyer, and the Spotters https://www.maryferrell.org/pages/Essay_-_Oswald_Legend_1.html Worth a read, but the endnotes formatting is somewhat unhelpful - after reading the essay, you get presented with quotes from it, and then have to double back to the main text to find which one went where - and this latest in a 'revised series of articles' is still dated August 2010, so it beats me if it was revised or not.
  9. Robert De Niro spoke twice about this guy’s film on the Today show.
  10. Those parts are from several years or a decade ago. I'm personally going to skip re-looking at those as the revised versions are all coming out imminently.
  11. James. Fair comments. I've had a quick look at an earlier version of Bill Simpich's essay, and it's very heavy on the footnotes and annotations. So - this is taken from what was published as part 10 (Mexico City), several years ago - you'll eventually be getting stuff like this - - and this is just a small portion of the footnotes from that segment, and there are twelve segments. So I think you can be confident that substantial documentation will be coming in this case too, as we're getting a revised version of Bill Simpich's original essay.
  12. Jim. The article is a preface. From memory the earlier incarnation of the text on another site ended with a long list of links and footnotes and citations. So maybe things are still forthcoming, particularly as we’ll ultimately have thirteen segments to read, and this is the first, and some might prefer seeing all those footnotes gathered in the one spot. And in your second paragraph you criticise the work for being superficial and not probing matters more deeply - ‘there is so much more to explore’ etc. Simpich clearly agrees with you, as he made this article a preface, and there’s another deeper article coming each week for the next twelve weeks to expand the argument over twelve more essays. So maybe judge those before you dismiss the piece under discussion as glib.
  13. James. I clicked on two links at random. Both were primary sources, scanned documents that said what Bill said they did.
  14. The Corbett Report is pretty reliable stuff, and James Corbett has a decent amount of scepticism about some of the nuttier conspiracies out there. Trine Day are teasing a new Epstein book from Whitney Webb.
