    New Book!

    For those who are interested, I have recently revised and expanded my "Right-Wing Archives" webpage at the following link: RESEARCH INTO CONSERVATIVE AND EXTREME RIGHT ARCHIVES I was able to find a lot of new listings that pertain to individuals and organizations discussed in Dr. Caufield's book. The webpage (link above) includes annotated notes at the bottom for some of the more significant listings and there is also a PDF version at the bottom of the webpage. In addition, a friend of mine (Archie Henderson) is currently reviewing the last volume of his 3000-page publication entitled: "Conservatism, the Right Wing, and the Far Right: A Guide To Archives" (4 volumes) -- and it is scheduled to be published soon. There is a link below which describes his work. ACLU Records on Right Wing Groups-Princeton Univ. ACLU-North California Records-California Historical Society Lee J.

    Did the Dallas Radical Right kill JFK?

    Most political conspiracy theories are constructed to be non-falsifiable -- which means that they are not really theories. In a way, this is reminiscent of how registrars in southern states determined which African Americans would be eligible to vote. Normally, those registrars required black citizens to answer questions which 99.999% of white Americans could not answer. Example: in Alabama, there was a list of 68 potential questions used by registrars. Here are three of them: (1) Of the original 13 states, the one with the largest representation in the first Congress was___________? (2) The Constitution limits the size of the District of Columbia to___________? (3) The only laws which can be passed to apply to an area in a federal arsenal are those passed by _______ provided consent for the purchase of the land is made by ________? So....when registrars rejected African-Americans, they could claim that they were not eligible voters because they could not pass the required test. As these examples show (however) the test was constructed to make it impossible to be successful ! Similarly, conspiracy theories are constructed to prevent anybody from ever successfully falsifying them. It is indisputable (in my opinion) that scholars and investigative journalists have not spent as much time researching the history of the radical right in our country as that subject warrants. But there are some obvious reasons for that deficiency. To cite merely one example: many radical right organizations (such as the Birch Society) do NOT allow outside independent researchers to have access to their archives for historical research.

    Did the Dallas Radical Right kill JFK?

    Seemed like an obvious conclusion from what you wrote. How, otherwise, could ANYBODY reach an acceptable conclusion if someone can always claim that there is some kind of evidence which is being withheld or suppressed because (as you put it) "...most everything else is still hidden or worse - destroyed." ??
  5. Ernie Lazar

    Did the Dallas Radical Right kill JFK?

    Well, Jason, the problem with your "example" is epistemological i.e. what methods do we use to discover, recognize, and interpret factual evidence and give it proper weight and how do we separate fact from fiction? Not all data we confront has equal value or credibility. There are HUNDREDS of examples of JFK-related assertions and beliefs which FBI documents memorialize but when those assertions and beliefs were investigated, they evaporated into the ether and amounted to nothing more than hearsay, gossip, rumor, or wild exaggerations or mis-interpretations. Nobody involved in this discussion has ever disputed that there are numerous documents which mention what somebody "felt" or what somebody "thought" or what somebody "claimed" or what somebody "believed". If I had $1 for every JFK-related bit of information summarized in FBI documents that turned out to be utterly false, I would be a very wealthy person. But those things are not (and can never be) equal to clear and convincing evidence or proof.
  6. Ernie Lazar

    Did the Dallas Radical Right kill JFK?

    The short answer to your question is simply that Paul Trejo has declared for years that there were FBI documents which would confirm Paul's "theory" about a "JBS plot" and those documents would be released by NARA during 2017 or 2018. Your statement seems to be: The absence of evidence amounts to "proof" of whatever "conspiracy" you might wish to allege. I have predicted for at least two years that the ultimate argument by Paul Trejo (and his allies) would be precisely what you now claim, i.e. that the incriminating documentary evidence will be hidden, destroyed, or withheld. That is ALWAYS the intellectual escape hatch used by conspiracy adherents--rather than acknowledge fundamental error. That is also why conspiracy arguments are impossible to falsify -- because normal rules of evidence and logic are cheerfully discarded! With respect to MM and Walker documents --- they do NOT provide evidence about any "JBS plot" -- which has always been the essence of Paul Trejo's and Harry Dean's argument. Of course there are JFK-related documents which include references to MM and/or Walker. They have been publicly available for decades. I have many of them in my copy of the FBI HQ main file on the assassination, (i.e. HQ 62-109060) and most of those documents are online on Mary Ferrell's website.

    New Book!

    SOME MORE BAD NEWS FOR PAUL TREJO: In January 2018, NARA released a new summary of all the remaining JFK documents that had not (up to that time) been fully released. (However, many were previously released with some redactions and others were released this week). That January summary totals 791 pages. The portion which summarizes FBI documents is 229 pages. Each remaining FBI file number and each serial number is shown along with the total number of pages in each document. I spent several hours looking up the most commonly-referenced FBI file numbers on the NARA summary and I can now report that: (1) There are no documents pertaining to Edwin Walker, Harry Dean, or the John Birch Society. Nor are there any documents about the primary "plot" characters discussed by Dr. Caufield in his book. [I searched every applicable FBI HQ and field office file number that might have produced some kind of hit.] (2) Many of the remaining documents are in the 92-series of FBI files. The 92-series refers to "racketeering enterprise investigations". Apparently, these docs are predominantly about Mob-connected individuals. For example, one series of documents pertained to John Roselli. (3) I focused my attention upon the FBI file numbers which had the most listings -- and, often, they had the most pages too. The subject of every one of the 104 FBI file numbers I researched was identifiable by searching it online. Most of the time, the Mary Ferrell website produced a "hit" which identified each file subject. In other cases, I saw a PDF copy of a document which NARA uploaded during the past year. BOTTOM-LINE IT IS time for Paul to admit there is nothing to substantiate his (or Harry Dean's) "JBS plot" supposition.

    (1) NEW BOOK ON RADICAL RIGHT IN UNITED STATES FROM FDR TO TRUMP https://rowman.com/ISBN/9781442276512/Enemies-of-the-State-The-Radical-Right-in-America-from-FDR-to-Trump# Enemies of the State: The Radical Right in America from FDR to Trump DARREN J. MULLOY The rise of the alt-right alongside Donald Trump’s candidacy may be seem unprecedented events in the history of the United States, but D. J. Mulloy shows us that the radical right has been a long and active part of American politics during the twentieth century. From the German-American Bund to the modern militia movement, D. J.

The collection also includes materials on such topics as survivalism, Holocaust denial, creationism, and anti-Catholicism from groups like John Birch Society and the Black Panther Party.

    Did the Dallas Radical Right kill JFK?

    https://www.theguardian.com/us-news/2018/apr/22/jfk-documents-could-show-the-truth-about-a-diplomats-death-47-years-ago JFK documents could show the truth about a diplomat's death 47 years ago Family of Charles Thomas are pleading with Trump to release papers they say show his 1971 suicide stemmed from officials wanting to shut down effort to reopen JFK investigation Philip Shenon, Sun 22 Apr 2018 07.00 EDT Last modified on Sun 22 Apr 2018 07.23 EDT Charles Thomas was a rising star at the state department in the early 1960s, a career diplomat who had served across Latin America and Africa. His colleagues were convinced he would earn the rank of ambassador. They agreed that the tall, jut-jawed, preppy, handsome Thomas – described by colleagues as “the diplomat from central casting” – adored his wife Cynthia and two young daughters. But then something went horribly wrong. In 1971, at the age of 48, Thomas killed himself. The death certificate showed that on Monday 12 April, at about 4pm and in the second-floor bathroom of his family’s rented home on the banks of the Potomac river in Washington, Thomas lifted a gun to his head. Cynthia, downstairs, thought the boiler had exploded. The reasons for the suicide were not a complete mystery. Thomas had been despondent after he had been denied a promotion two years earlier and forced out of the state department. In the 1960s, the department had an up-or-out policy – diplomats were either promoted or they were “selected out”, to use the department’s Orwellian term. For Cynthia and the rest of the family, the nightmare was compounded months later by a terrible discovery – Thomas had been “selected out” in error. A clerical mistake had apparently cost him his cherished, 18-year career. According to the department, Thomas was denied a promotion because part of his personnel records, including a glowing job evaluation from the embassy in Mexico, had been accidentally misfiled. The family received a formal written apology, signed by Gerald Ford. Congressional outrage led the state department to overhaul its promotion system. But now, four decades later, Thomas’s widow and others say they are convinced they are still being denied the full truth about what put Thomas on a path to killing himself. In that cause, they are pleading with Donald Trump to release classified documents from the National Archives. The documents are long-secret government files about – of all things – the assassination of John F Kennedy. The Thomas family acknowledges that their’s is a bizarre and complicated story. But they are convinced – with good reason, given what they have discovered – that if Thomas’s personnel records were misfiled it was intentional, and that it was never the real reason for his firing. They are certain that Thomas lost his career – and ultimately his will to live – because senior officials were determined to shut down his persistent, unwelcome and ultimately fruitless effort to reopen an investigation of JFK’s murder. There is a long paper trail. Documents released to the public show that during a posting in Mexico in the mid-1960s, Thomas came across evidence that showed Lee Harvey Oswald – who visited Mexico City in September 1963, weeks before killing Kennedy – had been in contact there with Cuban diplomats and spies who wanted JFK dead and might have offered help and encouragement. In internal memos not made public until years after his death, Thomas told supervisors such information from Mexico could undermine the findings of the presidential panel that determined in 1964 that Oswald acted alone. In one memo, Thomas warned that the Mexico information “threatened to reopen the debate about the true nature of the Kennedy assassination and damage the credibility of the Warren Report”. For historians, Oswald’s trip to Mexico has never been adequately explained. Available records shows that the CIA and FBI knew much more about it – and the threat Oswald posed – than they ever shared with the Warren Commission. The agencies appear to have withheld evidence out of fear they might be blamed for bungling intelligence that could have saved Kennedy’s life. Oswald, a Marine Corps veteran and self-declared Marxist who had once tried to defect to the Soviet Union, met in Mexico with Cuban and Soviet diplomats and spies and, according to a long-secret FBI report, talked openly about his plan to kill Kennedy. Given Trump’s deadline next week – a deadline he set himself – to release thousands of still-classified documents related to the assassination held by the National Archives, the Thomas family says questions about their family tragedy are urgent once again. Many of those documents are known to have come out of the files of the CIA station in Mexico at about the time of Oswald’s visit, which suggests they could bolster Thomas’s suspicions about what happened there. In an interview, Thomas’s youngest daughter, Zelda Thomas-Curti, a Minneapolis business consultant who was born in Mexico, described her father as “one of America’s most important – if mostly unrecognized – 20th-century government whistleblowers”. On behalf of her family, including her own three children, Thomas-Curti said she had written to Trump, to ask him to do justice to her father’s memory by releasing all remaining JFK files. “Washington overpowered my father like a steam shovel, tossing him into a heap like discarded dirt,” she wrote. “But he was a hero who was out there fighting for the truth.” She told Trump that she wanted “my three children to know that their grandfather was a real-life hero”. Thomas’s widow, Cynthia, who went on to her own career in the state department and now lives in Minnesota, said the family deserved to see all the JFK documents. “My grandchildren are entitled to know the truth about Charles,” she said. In 1992, Congress passed the JFK Assassination Records Collection Act. Lawmakers hoped it would damp down raging conspiracy theories created by the release of Oliver Stone’s conspiracy-laden film, JFK, the year before. The law called for release of all assassination-related documents. As a result, millions of pages were made public in the 1990s. Several thousand other documents, initially held back because of national security concerns, were supposed to have been released last October, the 25th anniversary of the law’s passage. But Trump delayed the release for another six months, citing security concerns raised by the CIA and FBI. The new deadline is 26 April. The White House has given no clue about whether the president will now allow the full library of documents to be made public. But Trump, who is no stranger to conspiracy theories, including about the Kennedy assassination, has vowed transparency. “The American public expects – and deserves – its government to provide as much access as possible” to the JFK records, he said last year. The exact number of assassination-related documents still held is in question, since there is no definitive public inventory. A research group, the Mary Ferrell Foundation, said last month its tally showed more than 21,890 documents were still being withheld in full or in part. The National Archives has produced a bare-bones index, which shows that many of the documents are drawn from the CIA station in Mexico City. For Thomas’s family, as well as for many JFK historians, that suggests those documents may refer to surveillance of Oswald and his contacts in Mexico. Previously declassified files show that CIA officers in Mexico conducted close surveillance of Oswald as he apparently sought a visa to defect to Havana. The files show that he visited both the Cuban and Soviet embassies and that he may have had a brief affair with a Mexican woman who worked in the Cuban consulate. In a once-classified 2013 internal CIA report, the agency’s chief historian concluded that the CIA had conducted a “benign cover-up” to withhold “incendiary” information. The cover-up, the report said, was intended to keep the commission focused on “what the Agency believed at the time was the ‘best truth’ – that Lee Harvey Oswald, for as yet undetermined motives, had acted alone in killing John Kennedy”. In a memo written in 1969, in his final days at the department, Thomas made a last plea that someone go back to Mexico. Though he made no allegation that Fidel Castro had any personal role in any plot to kill Kennedy, Thomas wanted the US to investigate whether the Warren Commission had missed evidence of a conspiracy in JFK’s death between Oswald and Cubans loyal to the Castro regime. “Since I was the embassy officer who acquired this intelligence information,” Thomas wrote, “I feel a responsibility for seeing it through to its final evaluation.” The memo outlined a story that Thomas first heard in 1965 from a friend – Elena Garro de Paz, a prominent Mexican writer whose husband, Octavio Paz, later won the Nobel Prize for literature. Garro said she had encountered Oswald at a family dance party in Mexico City in the fall of 1963 that was attended by Cuban diplomats and Mexican leftists who supported the Castro revolution. According to Garro, people at the party had spoken openly of their hope that Kennedy would be killed. According to Garro, who died in 1998, Oswald was invited to the party by her cousin Silvia Duran, a vivacious young woman who worked at the Cuban consulate. Garro told Thomas she was certain Oswald and Duran had a brief affair. In the years since Thomas’s paperwork was made public, Duran, who is still alive, has insisted that she did not have an affair with Oswald and only met him inside the Cuban consulate. But other Mexicans, including members of Duran’s extended family, have disputed her account. A Mexican journalist recalled seeing Oswald at a separate reception, at the Cuban embassy

    Did the Dallas Radical Right kill JFK?

    JFK files: 15-year lawsuit over mysterious CIA agent drags as final files await release Ed Brackett, USA TODAYPublished 4:34 p.m. ET March 19, 2018 | Updated 8:41 p.m. ET March 19, 2018 https://www.usatoday.com/story/news/politics/2018/03/19/jfk-files-15-year-lawsuit-over-mysterious-cia-agent-drags-final-files-await-release/435989002/ WASHINGTON — For 15 years, journalist, author and assassination expert Jefferson Morley has fought to compel the CIA to produce records about longtime spy George Joannides, who worked with a group associated with President John F. Kennedy's acknowledged assassin and then aided the committee that tried to investigate that killing. Morley returned to federal court again Monday, this time before a three-judge appeals court panel to get the government to pay legal fees that have climbed to more than $500,000, said Morley's attorney, James Lesar. Circumstances around Kennedy's murder and the various theories over the decades that reject the idea that the lone assassin was Oswald — who himself was murdered during a jail transfer two days after Kennedy was killed — can get pretty complicated. Morley, however, says his case is simple: The government needs to inform the public of its activities. Morley wants the appeals court in Washington to force the government to pay his legal fees and to get the CIA to reveal some of Joannides' records. "We're talking about very specific things. We are not talking about a Chinese box," he said in response to a question mentioning the term. Bill Miller, public information officer of the Washington U.S. Attorney's office, said the office had no comment on the case beyond its court motions and filings. As more and more government files have been released under the JFK Records Act since October, various long-held CIA secrets have been revealed, many of them not related to the assassination, at least directly. But even with the court case and the Records Act — with its final production due in April — files on Joannides remain scarce. In 1963, the year Kennedy was murdered, Joannides was the CIA case officer over students from Cuba eager to oust dictator Fidel Castro, who had seized power in 1959. In 1978, Joannides was named by the CIA as its contact with the House Select Committee on Assassinations. The committee wanted to know more about the student group, which was called the DRE and code-named AMSPELL. It was part of the CIA efforts to undermine Castro. Another CIA operation on a separate track even aimed to assassinate Castro, using the Mafia and assets within Cuba. Oswald had a bizarre interaction with a DRE member in New Orleans the summer leading up to Kennedy's Nov. 22 murder, in Dallas — to which Oswald moved from New Orleans. And just after the assassination, the DRE publicized that encounter with Oswald, and Oswald's avowed support of Castro. Committee staffers wanted to know more about Oswald and the DRE, but they were stymied by Joannides and the CIA, who did not tell the committee that the agent handled the DRE in 1963 was ... Joannides himself. CIA trying to chill inquiry, lawyer says Lesar, president of the Assassination Archives and Research Center, said the CIA is trying to chill further efforts to open more records by making the plaintiffs pay for the litigation even when there's a public benefit. So far, however, U.S. District Judge Richard Leon has disagreed, ruling there is no public benefit in records relating to Joannides, who died in 1990. Other appeals court proceedings have sent the issue back to Leon to address finer legal points. Monday's appeals court appearance is the fifth time Morley's case has been presented, Lesar said. A ruling from the panel of three circuit judges — Karen Henderson, Brett Kavanaugh and Gergory Kalsas — could come anywhere from a month to one and a half years, Lesar said. Most of the fees come from the years-long fight over who should pay, Lesar said. Morley's lawsuit began nearly 15 years ago, after the CIA refused to produce any records it had on Joannides that the National Archives didn't already have. Five years after that 2003 filing, Morley prevailed. The CIA produced records showing among other things that Joannides had a residence available to him in New Orleans possibly around the time Oswald had a very public altercation there with a member of the student group. The records also revealed that a then-retired Joannides got a "Career Intelligence Medal" in 1981. Morley said Monday that its reference to his work at headquarters is a pat on the back for stonewalling the House committee. Oswald's 1963 interaction with the DRE in New Orleans is one in a series of bizarre episodes in the life of the Marine who had earlier defected to the Soviet Union only to return two and half years later. On Aug. 5, 1963, Oswald approached a DRE member and offered his services to the militant anti-Castroites. Yet four days later the member, Carlos Bringuier, saw Oswald on a street handing out leaflets for a pro-Castro group. Called the Fair Play for Cuba Committee, the group's New Orleans chapter in reality wasn't a bona fide group at all, having only one member — Oswald. A fight ensued, and both were arrested. The two subsequently appeared on a radio debate over Cuba on a New Orleans radio station.

    http://www.pressdemocrat.com/news/8118362-181/michael-paine-debated-politics-with Michael Paine, debated politics with JFK assassin Lee Harvey Oswald, dies at 89 CHRIS SMITH THE PRESS DEMOCRAT | March 15, 2018, 7:43PM | Updated 1 hour ago. Michael Paine of Sebastopol was a civil libertarian and retired aeronautical engineer who, while living outside Dallas in 1963, engaged in occasional political discussions with a self-identified Marxist named Lee Harvey Oswald. Following the assassination of President John F. Kennedy, he immediately thought of Oswald when he heard of the shooting “but dismissed him because I didn’t think he was that irrational,” Paine later told an interviewer. In testimony before the Warren Commission, created to investigate the assassination of JFK, Paine said he did not regard Oswald as someone likely to kill a president. “I saw he was a bitter person … very little charity in his view toward anybody, but I thought he was harmless,” he told the commission. Through much of the 55 years since JFK’s murder, some conspiracy narratives have alleged that both Paine and his former wife, Santa Rosa resident Ruth Paine, were CIA operatives and framed Oswald. Both rejected the scenario as ridiculous, declaring that their observations and knowledge of Oswald persuaded them that the killing of Kennedy was the work of him alone. Michael Paine told an interviewer not long after the shooting, “I think it’s a lone wolf thing. The opportunity presented itself to him and he probably wanted to make a mark on society.” Paine died March 1 in Sebastopol, where he had lived with or near his son the past 14 years. He was 89. He was born in New York City on June 25, 1928, to architect and left-wing activist G. Lyman Paine and Ruth Forbes Young, founder of the International Peace Academy. Michael Paine studied at Harvard and Swarthmore and was living in Pennsylvania when, in 1957, he married Ruth Avery Hyde. Two years later, Michael Hyde took a job with Bell Helicopter that required a relocation to Texas. The couple settled in Irving, a suburb of Dallas. They had two children, Tamarin and Chris, when they separated amicably in the fall of 1962, then continued to spend time together as a family. The children lived with Ruth Paine, a Quaker who has said she studied the Russian language in order to counter Cold War tensions by seeking out dialogue with Russian people. In February 1963, she heard of a Russian woman who spoke no English, having recently moved to the U.S. with her young daughter and her husband, Lee Harvey Oswald. Ruth, now a retired teacher and school counselor living in Rincon Valley, has said she liked the idea of having someone with whom to practice her Russian. So she reached out to the Oswalds. She invited her ex-husband, too, when she had 21-year-old Marina and Lee Oswald, 23, and baby June over for dinner. Ruth and Marina became friends. That friendship on occasion brought Michael Paine and Lee Oswald together, and three or four times they engaged in political discussions. Paine, a liberal and longtime member of the American Civil Liberties Union, would later describe Oswald as a “pipsqueak,” but one whose politics he tried to understand. “He told me he became a Marxist in this country by reading books and without having ever having met a communist,” Paine said in an interview following the assassination. “With me he spoke very freely and he complained that with other people he couldn’t … they wouldn’t talk about political subjects. He would talk about nothing else.” In interviews and in testimony before the Warren Commission, Paine described Oswald as a lonely man who seemed to like very few people. But in their conversations he never revealed hostility toward Kennedy. “I expressed my appreciation of President Kennedy and he didn’t ever argue with me on that point,” Paine said in an interview. In a 2013 essay he titled, “My Experience with Lee Harvey Oswald,” Paine recalled that Oswald once declared emphatically that “change only comes through violence.” “I’d also heard him say that President Kennedy was the best president he had in his lifetime. Looking back on what happened, these two statements seem impossibly contradictory … how could a man want to kill a president whom he thought was the best president he’d had in his lifetime?” Though Michael Paine remained no more than an acquaintance to the Oswalds, Ruth took Marina Oswald under her wing and tried to be helpful to her struggling family. Ruth, who became a key witness to the Warren Commission, has said she was hoping to bring a degree of stability to the Oswalds when, in the fall of 1963, she told Lee Oswald about a job opening she’d heard of — at the Texas School Book Depository in Dallas. Oswald was hired. He rented a room near the job. In late September, Marina accepted an invitation by Ruth live with her and her children in Irving, about a 20-minute drive from Dallas Ruth Paine allowed the Oswalds to store most of their belongings in her garage. For weeks, Lee Oswald, who had no car or drivers license, hitched a ride to Ruth’s house after work on Fridays, then spent the weekend there with his family. It surprised Ruth Paine when Oswald appeared at her home unannounced on a Thursday — Nov. 21, 1963. Later that night, she walked into the garage and found the light was on, causing her to wonder who’d been in there. When she arose the next morning, Lee Oswald was already up and gone. He’d left a coffee cup in the kitchen sink. At 12:30 that afternoon, gunshots killed JFK as he sat beside his wife, Jacqueline, in the back of a convertible Cadillac just after the presidential motorcade passed by the book depository. It would soon dawn on the Paines that Lee Harvey Oswald had hidden his scoped, bolt-action rifle in Ruth’s garage. In the 9,400-word “My Experience with Lee Harvey Oswald,” Michael Paine wrote that he believed the assassin acted alone and decided only shortly before Nov. 22, 1963, to do something that would make himself infamous. “The nation would remember him as the one who had shot the president of the strongest capitalist nation of the world,” Paine wrote. “He wanted to be important — not inconsequential. He would be in the history books now, and that is what he wanted.” Both of the Paines testified before the Warren Commission in 1964, Ruth more extensively because of her nearly yearlong friendship with Marina Oswald and her many encounters with Marina’s controlling husband. In time, the Paines left Texas. Michael Paine lived and worked in Concord, Massachusetts, and was active in coastal conservation and supported Planned Parenthood and the ACLU. He moved to Sonoma County in 2004. He and his son, Chris Panym, founded near Sebastopol a “multi-household, multi-age, multi-enterprise community” they called Green Valley Village. They were unable to bring it to fruition. Chris Panym said that as his father approached aged 90 he lost his memory but all his life was committed to championing the environment and civil liberty. In addition to his son in Sebastopol and his former wife in Santa Rosa, Paine is survived by his daughter, Tamarin Laurel-Paine of Middlefield, Massachusetts. There will be a memorial service at 1 p.m. on April 14 in the library at Friends House in Rincon Valley. Panym asks people interested in attending to RSVP to him at 707-861-1169.

    As I have written numerous times, Dr. Caufield should be commended and praised for putting together so much information concerning the post-World War II history of the extreme right in the U.S. There are very few comparable efforts and despite errors made by Caufield, he made a noteworthy contribution to our historical knowledge. HOWEVER -- Caufield's contribution to JFK-assassination scholarship is an entirely separate matter. (1) Just FYI: I just did a search for Caufield's name in the "Google Books" database. I found a grand total of TWO references: (A) Page 616 of a 1998 book entitled "Live By the Sword" by Gus Russo -- where Caufield's name is listed among about 30 other names. Apparently Caufield sent the book's author something. (B) A 1995 issue of "The Fourth Decade" newsletter (published by Jerry Rose). Caufield is acknowledged as having sent some photos to Mr. Rose. This tends to support my previous contention regarding the lack of interest by scholars and researchers in Caufield's Walker book. (2) My first awareness about Dr. Caufield (although at this time I did NOT associate him with JFK-research) was when I asked the FBI to send me a list of previous FOIA requesters on numerous subject matters. So, for example, I discovered that on October 28, 2005, Caufield was sent 602 pages of FBI documents pertaining to Edwin Walker. I also noticed that he made requests in 1999 on William Potter Gale and in 2006 he made an FOIA request on Pedro A. Del Valle and in 2004 he made an FOIA request on Kenneth Goff. Insofar as Dr. Caufield received FBI files or documents in response to those requests, he probably received files and documents which the FBI had previously processed FOR ME -- because my requests preceded his requests by many years. For example: Caufield received his 602 pages of Walker documents in 2005 whereas I received 2629 pages on Edwin Walker in March 1995. Apparently, to reduce its workload, the FBI decided to NOT process a substantial portion of responsive records on Walker when they replied to the more recent FOIA requests. In particular, the FBI decided to NOT process Walker-related documents arising from the 1962 University of Mississippi-Oxford controversy and there were also a couple other HQ files which are now no longer available. One of them has always been of interest to me (HQ 97-3813) which contains serials regarding Walker's involvement (circa November 1965) with an attempt to overthrow the government of Costa Rica --- and there was also some discussion about Walker and the Dominican Republic. Caufield's request on William Potter Gale was made in July 1999 whereas my request was made in June 1988 and his request on Del Valle was made in May 2006 whereas mine was made in October 1998 and his request on Kenneth Goff was made in August 2004 whereas mine was made in March 1988. (3) There ARE very brief references to Harry Dean in some JFK assassination books. However, most of them are either one or two sentences OR sometimes only a paragraph. Most of those references clearly express skepticism or outright hostility re: Harry's story and many append the word "claim" to Harry's assertions -- i.e. they don't take his comments seriously. As one prominent British conspiracy theorist pointed out in his JFK book: "A man using the name Harry Dean, a self-styled former CIA and FBI agent, has claimed that he had infiltrated such a plot by members of the far right John Birch Society. Dean has never been taken seriously by the Kennedy researchers..." The newer the JFK-assassination book, the LESS likely that Dean's narrative is even mentioned. And a review of JBS-assassination websites clearly reveals that Dean's narrative is just ignored. (3) So, bottom-line is this: Regardless of Paul Trejo's personal opinions -- it is simply INDISPUTABLE that my original comments regarding Caufield (and Harry Dean) were accurate and truthful.

    As a postscript to my previous message, I need to point out (for the record) that Paul never addresses whatever actual EVIDENCE is presented. Normally, when there is some dispute over something, the parties involved address the specific evidence presented by their opponents. However, Paul NEVER does that. Instead, he routinely uses mis-direction in an attempt to SHIFT discussion off the most relevant points. What are those "relevant points"? Let's quickly summarize them -- because it is stunning to notice that Paul never addresses ANY of them: (1) PROPER CONTEXT must ALWAYS be acknowledged when any criticisms are being made. In other words, one cannot ACCURATELY summarize or paraphrase or dispute whatever argument is being made UNLESS, FIRST, the correct CONTEXT is taken into account. (2) WHAT WAS THE CONTEXT FOR ALL MY PREVIOUS REMARKS? I quote the relevant points again: "NOBODY heard of Dr. Caufield before his book was published and NOBODY has heard of him since. NOBODY refers to his book or debates its content. He is NOT part of any informed discussion -- as proven by review of JFK websites or by a review of scores of books and articles which have been published since 2015 when Caufield's book was published. The current Amazon ranking of Caufield's book is #1,129,944 in total sales. Nor is his book discussed in academic journals or conferences. What OTHER metric is applicable? (3) Notice that Paul does not even attempt to address ANY of those points. (A) Does Paul claim that Dr. Caufield was known within the JFK research community BEFORE 2015? (B) Does Paul claim that Dr. Caufield's book has been repeatedly reviewed or discussed in academic journals or in JFK conferences after 2015? (C) Does Paul claim that any of the major JFK-assassination websites have discussed Caufield's book? EXAMPLE: How many references to Caufield are on Mary Ferrell's website? (4) What other points did I make? (i.e. THE CONTEXT for this dispute -- which Paul REFUSES to address because he cannot refute what I presented) (A). It is NOT relevant if historians AGREE upon one conclusion. All that matters is the point you don't understand, namely, that historians and political scientists and journalists DON'T EVEN DISCUSS Harry Dean (or Caufield) as a relevant or credible narrative (B) With respect to: "THAT HAPPENS TO BE A LIE" (1) Caufield is NOT a "serious JFK scholar". (2) Caufield is a medical doctor who wrote something which NO serious person or publication has even bothered to review and it contains numerous factual errors. Plus MANY of Caufield's footnotes are not even checkable because Caufield does NOT use standard bibliographic methods. That is another reason why NO serious scholar or researcher bothers to consider it relevant. [NOTE: Does Paul dispute any of this? Has Caufield's book been reviewed by any serious publication or website (other than Jim DiEugenio's detailed critique--which Paul has never refuted?) Does Paul dispute that Caufield's book contains numerous factual errors? Does Paul dispute that many of Caufield's footnotes are NOT checkable because he does not provide the relevant bibliographic information?] (C) Similarly, NOBODY even bothered to review your Ebook because it also was NOT a serious or even a well-documented publication [NOTE: Does Paul dispute this? If I recall correctly, Paul has written that he only sold about 20 copies of his Ebook!] (D) Serious historical narratives are always discussed in academic publications or at academic conferences or in other pertinent venues. Their conclusions do NOT have to be "proven" BUT they must present something new which is widely recognized as a worthwhile contribution to the ongoing conversation about whatever matter is under scrutiny. Caufield's book cannot even meet that lowest-standard of what constitutes something relevant. [NOTE: Does Paul dispute any of this? Isn't it accurate and truthful to point out that serious historical narratives are ALWAYS discussed in academic and other venues AND serious narratives are routinely referenced in ongoing conversations about any historical controversy BUT Caufield's book is NOT discussed in these venues?] (E) Consequently, your statement that I lied is, in itself, a deliberate lie because you saw the context, you understood the context, and you deliberately chose to ignore the context. (F) IF you wanted to "prove" that I was not correct then you would have produced EVIDENCE to show that serious scholars and JFK websites routinely discuss or refer to Harry Dean's narrative OR that Dr. Caufield's book IS actually CURRENTLY discussed and referenced in online debates, in academic journals, in recent conferences devoted to discussing JFK assassination -- BUT YOU CAN'T DO THAT, CAN YOU? [NOTE: Has Paul even attempted to address these points? If not -- then why should we even consider him a serious, honest, or principled participant in this debate?]

    1. Caufield and O'Neill are hardly neutral or independent sources Paul. Obviously, authors or co-authors of publications will thank anybody who praises or publicizes or recommends their writings! 2. Nothing which I previously wrote has anything whatsoever to do with asking O'Neill or Caufield to post anything here. AGAIN -- this is another example of how you deliberately create straw-man arguments to divert attention from the REAL issues being raised. My actual point, which was very clearly stated, was that no serious JFK scholars or academic journals, publications, or conferences, or websites discuss what Caufield has written nor do they discuss Harry Dean. For example I have previously quoted what Joan Mellon wrote to me when I asked for her evaluation of Harry's narrative. There are also very acerbic comments from other JFK researchers over the years. 3. HOWEVER, since your mind functions like a small child, in the future I will respond to your messages in the manner which is required for a small child -- because I now recognize your need for literalism. This is quite funny because I just finished writing an article about the John Birch Society where I made the exact same point about their typical debate tactics. When debating a JBS member or sympathizer, a critic must NEVER assume that the plain ordinary meaning of words or thoughts are understood (or used) by Birchers AND one must NEVER leave out even the most picayune or irrelevant detail because if a critic DOES that, Birchers seize upon every such "omission" as a means to discredit EVERYTHING which the critic writes -- even though the specific detail might be totally irrelevant to the larger point being made. 4. Consequently, from now on, I will change my method of responding to your messages. I will start from the correct premise that you are mentally deficient and, therefore, you require that every single detail or nuance must be spelled out in child-like terms. 5. BOTTOM-LINE (using the new debate formula required when addressing your deficient intellect) (a) Human beings have many different opinions. An opinion is not the same thing as something which is factually true. Example: "I prefer strawberry ice cream, because it is the BEST flavor of ice cream" is a personal opinion. It reflects your personal preference and, consequently, it is NOT an argument which can be refuted or falsified. (b) There are some human beings on Planet Earth who have read Dr. Caufield's book and they have a positive OPINION about its content. However, that unknown number of human beings has not (up to now) included any currently known academic journals, or prominent historians or political scientists, or any prominent investigative journalists, OR anybody known and widely respected within the JFK (or American history) research community. The proof for those statements may be ascertained by simply reviewing the various library databases which capture articles, books, book reviews, newspaper articles, doctoral dissertations, master's theses, conference papers, audio/visual recordings, and other types of research materials. When searching those sources for Caufield's name OR for the title of Caufield's book OR for general discussions of JFK assassination theories -- one cannot find references to Caufield or his book -- nor can you find references to Harry Dean's "recollections" -- other than (perhaps) a couple sentences or a paragraph which just summarizes his unverifiable assertions. However, I should point out that any such references are almost always many years old and have not produced any sustained interest -- other than when they were first made many years ago. (c) The same evaluation (i.e. "b" above) can be made about Harry Dean's publication "Crosstrails" and about Paul Trejo's Ebook pertaining to Harry's narrative. However, as is the case in ALL matters of human OPINION, it is entirely possible that on a planet with 7,632,000,000 living human beings, one might find 10 or 20, or perhaps even 100 or 200 people who believe Harry's narrative or Dr. Caufield's narrative OR even (as hard as this is to believe), Paul Trejo's narrative. (d) What does the word "NOBODY" mean when used figuratively in conversation? (1) First, "figuratively" means "use of words or expressions with a meaning that is different from the literal interpretation" Since Paul Trejo has a child-like mentality, we must now define/describe "figurative language" (2) Why do human beings use "figurative" language? Answer: To emphasize certain concepts or ideas AND to convey something which is symbolic of a larger point. Often, for example, figurative language uses metaphors or hyperbole to emphasize a specific point. (3) LET'S NOW DISCUSS THE WORD "NOBODY": One of the standard definitions of the word "nobody" when it is used figuratively is: "a person of no importance, influence or power" Most NORMAL human beings understand that the word "nobody" is rarely (and probably never) used literally for a self-evident reason (i.e. self-evident to people who have normal brain function). That reason is because no single human being can ever know every thought or idea or opinion which exists in every human mind on Planet Earth. Consequently, if an author writes something like this: "Nobody believes the conspiracy theory which claims that Bill and Hillary Clinton arranged for the murder of Vincent Foster." THAT use of the word "nobody" is not meant to be taken LITERALLY, i.e. that no human being on Planet Earth believes that conspiracy theory. Instead, the word "nobody" in this context is used to emphasize that no rational person of importance, influence, or power believes that conspiracy theory. 6. CONCLUSION Because Paul Trejo... has such enormous difficulty understanding the normal usage of the English language AND he seizes upon everything he can use to divert attention from the ACTUAL meaning of what is being written AND he ROUTINELY uses mis-direction, straw-man arguments, circular reasoning, and deliberate FALSEHOODS to advance his personal opinions AND he can never acknowledge his personal mistakes AND he routinely attributes his own worst personal qualities to other people THEREFORE ALL future replies to Paul Trejo's messages will be handled in the same manner as above. Which means every word will be defined. Every concept or thought will be explained at the 3rd or 4th grade level of discussion so that there can be no future misunderstandings or mis-representations OR false accusations of "lying".

    Paul, you don't even know the definition of a lie. A lie is when you say or write something which is not true and you know it. I clearly told you the CONTEXT for my statement which you don't want to acknowledge. Consequently, your statement that I lied is, in itself, a deliberate lie because you saw the context, you understood the context, and you deliberately chose to ignore the context. IF you wanted to "prove" that I was not correct then you would have produced EVIDENCE to show that serious scholars and JFK websites routinely discuss or refer to Harry Dean's narrative OR that Dr. Caufield's book IS actually CURRENTLY discussed and referenced in online debates, in academic journals, in recent conferences devoted to discussing JFK assassination -- BUT YOU CAN'T DO THAT, CAN YOU? Now you know why NOBODY believes anything you write and why NOBODY thinks you are a serious person.

    OK, Paul --- you know the actual CONTEXT in which I made that statement but like a child you think you are making some relevant point by your literalism. By "NOBODY" (as I have repeatedly said before), I refer to all the usual suspects whom are typically part of all serious JFK debate. NOBODY heard of Dr. Caufield before his book was published and NOBODY has heard of him since. NOBODY refers to his book or debates its content. He is NOT part of any informed discussion -- as proven by review of JFK websites or by a review of scores of books and articles which have been published since 2015 when Caufield's book was published. The current Amazon ranking of Caufield's book is #1,129,944 in total sales. Nor is his book discussed in academic journals or conferences. What OTHER metric is applicable? I REPEAT MY ORIGINAL COMMENT --- which you cannot refute: 1. It is NOT relevant if historians AGREE upon one conclusion. All that matters is the point you don't understand, namely, that historians and political scientists and journalists DON'T EVEN DISCUSS Harry Dean (or Caufield) as a relevant or credible narrative 2. ALL works of FICTION are"innovative" 3. With respect to: "THAT HAPPENS TO BE A LIE" Nothing you have presented contradicts what I originally wrote. (A) Caufield is NOT a "serious JFK scholar". (B) Caufield is a medical doctor who wrote something which NO serious person or publication has even bothered to review and it contains numerous factual errors. Plus MANY of Caufield's footnotes are not even checkable because Caufield does NOT use standard bibliographic methods. That is another reason why NO serious scholar or researcher bothers to consider it relevant. (C) Similarly, NOBODY even bothered to review your Ebook because it also was NOT a serious or even a well-documented publication (D) Serious historical narratives are always discussed in academic publications or at academic conferences or in other pertinent venues. Their conclusions do NOT have to be "proven" BUT they must present something new which is widely recognized as a worthwhile contribution to the ongoing conversation about whatever matter is under scrutiny. Caufield's book cannot even meet that lowest-standard of what constitutes something relevant.
