    Pawley's Island
  1. David; Although I normallyl consider it hardly worthwhile to continue to invest in JFK assassinattion related books, I must also admit that your work appears to be something which I would not only learn from, but could be another of the "keys" to making the ties between the money and the event. LHO was, beyond any reasonable doubt, engaged in a course of action which was designated to get him into Cuba. Which by all available information appears to have been for the same reason as others before him, who had failed. Since LHO was not truely a political fanatic, then this pretty well leaves the motive(s) for his actions undefined. Which generally leads to "money". Personally, I have little doubt that LHO, for money, was clearly being manipulated into a position in which he could possibley take Castro out. However, after the Mexico City event, LHO's actions demonstrate a clear and concise change in actions which also demonstrate that his "target" had now become JFK. The only question remaining in my mind would be was this a "directed" course of action which changed the target from Castro to JFK, or did LHO, due to not being able to accomplish his originally designated task, lose out completely on some large monetary "bonus", and thusly blame JFK. In which his retaliation was to assassinate JFK as a result of his loss, and without the "direction" of whoever was behind his prior actions which had been targeted directly at Castro. Within those parameters, I can easily acccept that Pawley was at least a part of the plan and the money behind any plan to take out Castro. Which does not mean that he was behind the ultimate actions of LHO. Lastly! Where is your book available? Tom Tom, For someone who recently posted the following statement, I find it hard to believe that you have to even ask where to get David Kaiser's Book: ====================================== {Your Quote} "Anyone who has paid the least bit of attention would be aware that the "Pawley" family is from South Carolina and that "Pawley's Island" is named after this family. The family owned large plantations throughout this area prior to the Civil War, and were primarily engaged in the business of rice farming utilizing slave labor. After the Civil War, the family lost most of it's land and holdings. Most of which information is readily available to any true researcher, and most of which was also posted here long ago. Which happens to demonstrate the level of research which is frequently carried out on this forum. Unfortunately, when one sees the "Education Forum", they are often misguided in assumption that those who post here have taken the time and effort to "educate" themselves on the respective subject matter. {End Your Quote} ============================================== Try this: http://www.amazon.com/Road-Dallas-Assassin...7475&sr=8-1 I found it on a little known site called Google.
  2. Thank you for your contribution here regarding your book. Although I have not had a chance to read it yet, I have placed it on my "to do" list in the very near future. I appreciate your clarification on William Pawley, and what "was or was not said" in your book.
  3. William Pawley did not hold the "political process" in contempt. Only the Kennedy administration and John F. Kennedy himself, because Kennedy had no clue what he was doing in The White House, and never should have been there to begin with. You are right though in your accusation that Pawley had the "funds and connections to support any type operation he desired". However... you have him confused with someone that would use that power in an adverse way (like assassinating a President).
  4. That report came out in 1963 (not 1954)
  5. Article II only refers to the "water" area surrounding what is now Guantanamo Bay. It was to eliviate the U.S. from allowing commercial fishing vessels to compete with cuban ones in those waters.
  6. Pawley was investigated by the FBI at one time (and cleared of any suspicions later). The FBI and the CIA at that time were not organizations that worked together. The FBI was unaware that William Pawley was a CIA informant (operative) and conducted an investigation on him (as they did to over 15,000 other Americans at the time). It is a common known fact that Pawley disliked (to say the least) John F. Kennedy. If anyone was a back-stabber, it was Kennedy himself. We could elaborate on Kennedy all day long, but this forum post isn't called "Kennedy: The Idiot". As for John Birch. What about him? I know all about him, but don't see why he came into this post. Robert Welch organized the "John Birch Society". Pawley "may" have been a financial contributor (unknown), but only because of Birch's ties to the Flying Tigers, at the time. Birch was killed by a Chinese Communist Officer ---->
  7. Thank you for this information. Have you a date for this sale? Autobuses Modernos was originally created in the late 40's by William D. Pawley using English built Leyland buses which were fleet named "Royal Tigers" (in commemoration of "The Flying Tigers" of course). Pawley (as he did with many foreign contracts) obligated the government of Cuba to "buy back" the bus company in 1953. It was the first time in Cuban History that the government had to nationalize a private service. Pawley used contracts like these on several occassions (in several different countries). He would draw the contract up to state that he would take a run-down service (bus company, etc.) and vitalize it into a profitable business with a guaranteed buy-back from the government after a stated amount of time. He even did it in Miami-Dade County (formerly Metropolitan Dade County) with the Miami Transit Company (1948), Miami Beach Railway (1941), South Miami Coach Line (1956), and Keys Transit Company (The Florida Keys)(1956). ========================================================= 1941 Miami Beach Railway was purchased by William D. Pawley, increasing the local bus fleet from 18 to 43 buses. 1948 Pawley bought Miami Transit Company upon the death of George Dunn, taking the significant step toward solving some of Greater Miami's transportation problems. 1956 Pawley bought South Miami Coach Line and the Keys Transit Company. 1957 July 21: The Metropolitan Dade County government was officially established. 1960 The County Commission passed an ordinance (after purchasing back the bus companies from Pawley under the contract) - creating the Metropolitan Transit Authority (MTA) to unify the different transit operations into one countywide service. This ordinance provided for the purchase, development, and operation of an adequate mass transit system by the County. These companies included the Miami Transit Company, Miami Beach Railway Company, South Miami Coach Lines, and Keys Transit Company on Key Biscayne and would be managed by National City Management Co. =========================================================
  8. Tom, I am already not liking you very much. Your tone towards other posters on here is one that indicates that you are the ONLY EDUCATED individual who posts here. Try to remember that some people join a thread much later than the original posting, and can't find the time to scroll through most of the crap that is posted and re-posted and re-quoted over and over again. (You know you can delete part of the QUOTES - when you respond to a posting - that are not relevent to the material you are responding to). This way we don't have to re-read your entire posting over and over and over again. This elimanates precious time not having to scroll past all the useless information time and time again. P.S. - How about a photo of you more recent than 30+ years ago.
  9. Peter, Thanks for your words. I do get a bit upset at times when I see things written about my Great Uncle, that I know to be false or misleading. He was a great family man, business man and politician; and he and Edna (his wife) were the backbone of the Pawley's in general. He strived for nothing less than greatness in everything he did (and always for the good of the people). I will be writing a Biography on him sometime in the next few years, which also should shed a lot of light on his life as a whole. BTW - Pawley's Island is in South Carolina (between Myrtle Beach and Charleston). It bears the name of my family as they were the original settlers and owners of the land there and surrounding; dating back to the 1600's. No Pawleys have an interest in any of the land there anymore, but the name Pawleys Island has remained. http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Pawleys_Island,_South_Carolina http://www.elowcountry.com/Sitemap/?rlPath=4562042 http://www.townofpawleysisland.com/ http://pawleys.org/ http://www.discoverpawleysisland.com/ http://www.pawleysislandhammocks.com/
  10. Mr. Plumlee, Thank you for your kind words on behalf of my Great Uncle. Yes, he was a very honorable man who reached his hand out to many people (even those not deserving of it). ALthough he did not like JFK, he ABSOLUTELY had nothing to do with his assassination. Are you referring to the boat rides on the old 60' Berger appropriately named "The Flying Tiger"? What a great boat that was. I sailed on it many times myself as a child (Pleasure cruises and Fishing). Thanks again. It's nice to hear someone defending the true Patriot that William Pawley was. Take care. Cash Pawley
  11. It is correct that Edward Porcher Pawley, my Great Grandfather, (Not William D. Pawley - who was only 7 years old at the time) was granted permission to open a business in Cuba in the year following the Treaty (1904). It was NOT in violation of the treaty though, as the treaty stated that "no commercial enterprises could exist on The Guantanamo Base"... not in Cuba, as a whole. Since this enterprise was in Caimanera, it did not fall under any sanctions of the treaty.
  12. All of this is highly speculative and not fact-based, and sill surely DOES NOT implement Mr. Pawley in any way, shape or form to the Assassination of JFK. IN regards to #6 above: A more accurate detail would be - During the 1930s, Pawley worked in China as a sales representative for Curtiss-Wright, and assembled aircraft in partnership with the Chinese Nationalist government under the corporate name of Central Aircraft Manufacturing Company in various locations. (CAMCO was owned in partnership with the Chinese government, with the Pawley family interest represented by a holding company called Intercontinent.) In 1941, with his brothers Edward and Eugene, he played a part in the organization and support of the 1st American Volunteer Group, popularly known as the Flying Tigers. When the final CAMCO factory was captured by the Japanese in May 1942, Pawley moved his operation to India as a partner in Hindustan Aircraft Limited. ** Castro never took the cuban bus company (Autobuses Modernos) from Pawley. He had already sold it back to Batista years earlier. As for Cubana Airlines, Pawley never held any interest in this company. Here is what he did have an interest in (and as you can see, it was sold long before Castro came to power): "In 1927 Pawley began working for the Curtiss-Wright Corporation. In 1928 Pawley returned to Cuba to become president of the Nacional Cubana de Aviacion Curtiss. He held this post until the company was sold to Pan American Airways in 1932"
  13. I will have to correct this slightly. First of all, William D Pawley died of a "single" self-inflicted gun shot wound. There has never been any evidence to the contrary. His wife, Edna Pawley, was home at the time and found him within seconds of the shooting (when she heard the gunshot). She was in a nearby room. I know from having spent much time in the same house, that it would have been impossible for someone to have shot Mr. Pawley and fled the scene without having to pass Mrs. Pawley in the hallway, as there was no other exit from the Den where he was found (not even a closet to hide in). Furthermore, Bill Pawley had acquired a severe case of Shingles years earlier, which had progressed across his entire body (even the soles of his feet). He had been unable to lay down, stand or become comfortable in any position. The pain was excruciating, and there was no modern medicine(s) for a cure or even proper pain management at the time. Therefore, Mr. Pawley suffered day in and day out, until he just could not do it anymore. This was the reason for his suicide.
  14. I am interested in more information as to what evidence would suggest that William Pawley had anything to do with the JFK assassination.
  15. Thank you for the introduction John. And, yes, I shall be reading and responding as much as I can.
