  1. B.A. Copeland, I'm pleased to discuss these matters with anybody who is open to a Dallas-did-it CT. You are correct to interpret my posts as part of a Walker-did-it CT. I know Doug Campbell very well, having appeared on his Podcast three times now. I am pleased that Doug is working on his own Dallas-did-it CT, and I welcome his views in this thread. I would like to discuss why Doug suspects DPD Captain William Westbrook of such a central role in the JFK plot that Westbrook would be the man who invited General Walker into the plot. As for CIA officers in the JFK plot -- I am also certain they were involved -- but at a lower level. It's not that I want Dallas to be the only focus of the JFK Assassination, yet in my opinion, Dallas has received 1% of the attention in the past 50 years, and that is unacceptable. I am certain that Mexico City is a central player in the JFK Assassination -- but not as a CIA plot. In my view, the Mexico City CIA was clueless about the role of Lee Harvey Oswald there. That was proved by Bill Simpich (2014) in his theory of the top-secret CIA Mole Hunt of October 1, 1963. There would never have been a Mole Hunt if the CIA top command knew what was going on. Instead, in my reading, Mexico City was the third site (after Dallas and New Orleans) of a Radical Right plot to assassinate JFK and blame Lee Harvey Oswald and the Communists for it. A few CIA rogues joined this civilian plot. All best, --Paul
  2. Hi Jason, The Assistant Director of the FBI, Alan Belmont, specifically told the Warren Commission that the FBI carefully checked out the claims that Lee Harvey Oswald was involved with the FPCC back in Dallas in April 1963, and the FBI flatly concluded that the claim was false. Here is the actual WC testimony. Mr. STERN - Question 8, Mr. Belmont, on page 5, sets out the information from a report by Agent Hosty regarding alleged Fair Play for Cuba Committee activity by Oswald while he was still residing in Dallas. Have you found that an investigation was conducted to determine whether that was accurate and do you think it should have been investigated? Mr. BELMONT - As to whether he was active with the Fair Play for Cuba Committee in Dallas? We did check. We have rather excellent coverage of such activities. There is no evidence whatsoever to indicate that he was active with the Fair Play for Cuba Committee in Dallas. And, as a matter of fact, I can go a step further and say that following his dissemination of pamphlets and his activities in New Orleans, our inquiry of our sources who are competent to tell us what is going on in the organizations such as Fair Play for Cuba Committee, advised that he was not known to them in New Orleans. So that his activities in New Orleans were of his own making, and not as a part of the organized activities of the Fair Play for Cuba Committee. Therefore, despite the falsehoods that Dallas FBI agent James Hosty tried to spread regarding Lee Harvey Oswald -- even early in 1963 -- he had no support in Washington DC among the FBI. So, now, Jason, as to your question about how the shooting at General Walker on April 10, 1963 was related to Oswald's move to New Orleans on April 24, and his later connection with the FPCC in the summer of 1963, here is my opinion. 1. We must first recognize that Lee Harvey Oswald discussed a move to New Orleans, with Marina, obtaining her strong approval, on April 17, 1963. This was only one week after the Walker shooting. 2. Marina Oswald told the WC that she strongly approved Lee's moving to New Orleans, because she was terrified that the police were looking for Oswald with regard to the Walker shooting, and she wanted him to get out of Dallas as quickly as possible. 3. On the afternoon of April 24, 1963, as Ruth Paine testified, she and her babies drove to Neely Street in Dallas to visit the expectant Marina Oswald and her baby, to enjoy a walk in the local park. Ruth was stunned to see Lee Harvey Oswald there. His bags were packed and he asked her for a ride to the Greyhound bus station, to leave his bags there before he moved to New Orleans -- alone. 4. Lee's plan was to buy two tickets -- one for himself and one for Marina -- but leave Marina alone in the Neely Street apartment for a few weeks until he found work in New Orleans, and then she would take the bus to New Orleans. 5. Ruth was outraged by this unloving proposal. Any normal man would take his wife and baby with him, wherever he was going (especially to a relative's house). Ruth at that point believed Marina's continual complaints that Lee Harvey Oswald wanted to abandon Marina and June, and even send them back to the USSR if he could -- because he was a failure at supporting them. 6. Ruth drove everybody to the Greyhound station, and there Ruth decided that she would finally propose what was on her mind for two solid months -- to invite Marina and June to come and live with her. 7. Oddly, Lee Harvey Oswald immediately jumped at that prospect. He took Marina Oswald's bus ticket back and cashed it in. He split the cash with Marina. Lee left his bags with Greyhound, and then they all drove back to Neely Street and Lee single-handedly loaded up Ruth Paine's station wagon with all of their meager belongings. Ruth was delighted to have Marina and June live with her and her two babies for a few weeks. 8. While Lee Harvey Oswald was in New Orleans -- specifically on May 26, 1963 (a full month after he moved there) -- he first wrote to the FPCC in New York City, asking their permission to establish a branch in New Orleans. They soon wrote back denying LHO a branch. LHO set it up anyway. 9. OK, now for my conclusion. 10. Lee was laid off from Jaggars-Chiles-Stovall on April 1, 1963, for poor performance. He delayed telling Marina as long as he could. His last day there was April 6, 1963. Ruth Paine had no idea about this, because Marina never told Ruth. 11. Lee took a pot-shot at General Walker on April 10, 1963 knowing he had no further work in Dallas -- and since he was laid off by J-C-S for poor performance -- they would not give him a positive reference for another job. 12. Four days later, on the late night of Saturday, April 13, 1963, George and Jeanne De Mohrenschildt got the Oswalds out of bed with the ruse of bringing baby June a toy Easter bunny from the local drug store. Actually, they wanted an answer nagging at them with every news report of the Dallas police seeking the shooter(s) at General Walker the previous Wednesday. 13. George and Jeanne were really looking for evidence that Lee was as wacky as he seemed. Jeanne asked Marina to show her around her apartment, and Jeanne snooped around until she found it -- a military rifle with a scope on it, there in the Oswald closet. 14. Jeanne shouted out to George, "Here is a rifle!" George asked Lee, "Lee, did you take a pot-shot at General Walker?" Lee froze and did not answer. He looked at Marina, who also froze. Marina looked back. They looked at George. George started laughing. Then they all started laughing. That cut the ice. Then the De Mohrenschildt's politely said goodnight, and left -- never to see the Oswalds again in their lives. 15. Early the next morning, George visited his best friends in Dallas, Igor and Natasha Voshinin, and over coffee, he told them his deep suspicions about Lee Harvey Oswald. Igor and Natasha never liked the Oswalds. They advised George to instantly tell the FBI. George said he could not do that, and he left. 16. The moment George left them, Natasha picked up the telephone and called the Dallas FBI, telling them everything that George told them. 17. Numbers 12 to 16 above are from the report by Dick Russell (TMWKTM, 1993). My personal opinion begins now. 18. The Dallas FBI immediately told General Walker about the suspicion that Lee Harvey Oswald was his shooter. 19. General Walker then called all of his friends in the Radical Right -- from Georgia to Mississippi to Louisiana. When he told Guy Banister, Guy noted quickly that his close associate, David Ferrie, knew LHO in childhood, and had LHO's confidence. They could manipulate LHO for Walker. 20. A deal was made. Guy Banister and David Ferrie and their team at 544 Camp Street would involve LHO in their various Radical Right schemes. 21. Perhaps David Ferrie was able to contact Lee Harvey Oswald in the next few days, and make some attractive offers and promises of CIA employment (which Ferrie could not legally make, since Ferrie was never a CIA officer himself; yet the lie was more important than the truth here). 22. In any case, we know from WC testimony that Lee and Marina discussed his moving to New Orleans only 7 days after the Walker shooting. She strongly encouraged Lee to get out of Dallas. 24. By April 24th, only two weeks after the Walker shooting, Lee Harvey Oswald arrived in New Orleans, and lived with his aunt and uncle for two weeks. 25. Lee got a job at Reily Coffee Company. This was literally across the street from 544 Camp Street. Thus, it was a myth that LHO spent all his spare time at the garage next door to Reily Coffee Company when he was missing from his duties -- the likelihood is greater that LHO spent a great deal of his time at 544 Camp Street -- to the neglect of his machine greasing duties. 25. By May 26th, Lee Harvey Oswald first contacted the FPCC. These are how the dates play out, according to the online Timeline of LHO by Tracy Parnell (of this Forum) All best, --Paul
  3. Hi Jason, Thanks for this recognition of the weaknesses of all the major CT's out there -- the CIA-did-it, the Mafia-did-it, Hoover-did-it, LBJ-did it, or the Communists-did-it. We have plausible suspects in Dallas, deep inside the Dallas Police and Deputies, whose actions as revealed in their WC testimony makes them collectively, "Suspect Number One." The question now, is to describe -- by using material evidence only -- how they were organized -- who were the leaders -- and who were the followers. I think that we have the basics as follows: (1) the leaders in the Dallas Police were the actual high-ranking men inside the Dallas Police, namely, Chief Jesse Curry and Captain Will Fritz; (2) the leaders among the Dallas Deputies were the high-ranking men inside the Dallas Sheriff's Office, namely, Sheriff Bill Decker, Deputy Buddy Walthers and Deputy Luke Mooney; (3) the leaders among the Dallas FBI were James Hosty and James Bookhout; (4) the leader inside the Dallas Secret Service was Forrest Sorrels; and (5) the leader inside the USPD was postal inspector Harry Holmes. There were others underneath these men -- and most of them tended to have titles. This was, in my opinion, a well-organized plot by the Dallas Police and Deputies, with the assistance of the local branches of the FBI and Secret Service, and the local USPD office. I want to emphasize my opinion there -- that the Dallas FBI and the Dallas Secret Service plotted against JFK -- not the Washington DC offices of the FBI or Secret Service. That distinction is crucial. The key tendency of the Dallas plotters was an impatience to frame Lee Harvey Oswald as a Communist member of the FPCC, and that therefore the Communists-did-it. This tendency arises often within the WC testimony of these men. While I recognize that there were rogues within the CIA who confessed long ago to some role in the JFK Assassination, they could not have controlled Dallas as thoroughly s the Dallas Police and Deputies. They could not have controlled the crime scenes, the witnesses, the suspects, the suspects families and friends -- as well as the Dallas Police and Deputies. What, then, did these CIA rogues do? In my opinion, Jim Garrison in 1968 had identified their main roles -- almost entirely limited to New Orleans -- establishing the illusion for Lee Harvey Oswald that he was part of a legitimate Intelligence Team to kill Fidel Castro -- and that he would be greatly rewarded once that task was completed. Jim Garrison mainly identified the players around 544 Camp Street in New Orleans (and BTW I visited that location to see it close up). Joan Mellen also identified and interviewed many of them. Not one was a genuine CIA officer -- yet they all claimed to be CIA officers. An elaborate illusion was provided for Lee Harvey Oswald -- lasting several months, and taking him to Mexico City at the end of the summer of 1963. The names included Roy Hargraves, Gerry Patrick Hemming, Loran Hall and Larry Howard -- and these were active players in New Orleans and Lake Pontchartrian there. In Mexico City (according to Harry Dean) Loran Hall and Larry Howard drove Lee Harvey Oswald to Mexico City as a passenger in their car. As for the telephone impersonation of Lee Harvey Oswald in Mexico City on October 1, 1963, I suspect CIA agent David Morales -- not anybody else -- because the operation was delicate -- it involved inside knowledge that the Cuba Consulate line to the Soviet Embassy was the single most wire-tapped telephone on planet earth. Only a CIA agent would know that. Next, it involved news from the Soviet Embassy that Lee Harvey Oswald, in his bumbling, had spoken with KGB assassin Valeriy Kostikov (without knowing it). This opportunity could not be missed -- that chance meeting must be made a matter of the CIA record there. Thus, a savvy CIA agent risked the telephone impersonation. The CIA translators figure out it was an impersonation within minutes. That started the Simpich Mole Hunt (2014). All the other CIA rogues who were vouching for the death of JFK, were also smart enough to stand behind people with a higher rank inside their secret plot. The highest ranking was David Morales. After him, E. Howard Hunt. After him, perhaps Rip Robertson. All others were citizens with no titles, like Frank Sturgis and John Martino. They did what they were told -- when they could be trusted to be team players. Anyway -- at the tippy top of the Dallas plot I find that the one thing the Dallas plotters all had in common was Radical Right ideology as voiced by the John Birch Society and the Minutemen in Dallas. The most outspoken leader in these two groups was General Edwin Walker. He deserves a careful examination, I believe -- starting with his WC testimony -- but also adding elements from his personal papers, and from the daily press in late 1963. Finally, if we can find anything in the new JFK Act Release of 26 Oct 2017 of 35,000 pages of unredacted text about the Dallas Police and Deputies -- and General Walker -- then I feel sure that would help enormously. All best, --Paul
  4. B.A. Copeland, In general, I have carefully examined the careers of these individuals in relation to the CIA-did-it CT when I was a CIA-did-it CTer 15 years ago. I am confident that David Morales was involved in the JFK Assassination at a lower level, as a rogue CIA officer. I am confident that Morales recruited the mercenary (and sometime CIA asset) Frank Sturgis to cooperate in this plot -- and I am confident that Frank Sturgis recruited CIA officer E. Howard Hunt. I am confident in these three, because they all confessed to an involvement. Nevertheless, I also feel confident that just because these three confessed to a role in the JFK Assassination, is no reason to jump to the conclusion that the CIA-did-it. Not in the slightest. Actually, all it means is that two rogue CIA officers, and one mercenary confessed to a role in the JFK Assassination. Yet how did they act, then, as rogues? In my CT, they all joined a Civilian JFK plot, namely, the one led in Dallas by General Walker. As for William Harvey -- I find no role at all for him. We cannot claim that everybody who hated JFK and RFK was a plotter in the Dallas murder of JFK. William Harvey admittedly hated RFK and JFK -- and would have joined a plot if he could -- but by 1963 he was living in Italy with a reputation of being a total drunkard from morning until night. He was an alcoholic -- a ruined man. While it is true that several Cuba raiders referred to Harvey's guidelines for political assassination, these were not unique plans. Rip Robertson is more complicated. A CIA officer in the 1940's, and an active agent in South American politics, and one of the players in the Bay of Pigs invasion, he was deeply resentful of JFK and RFK following the failure of the Bay of Pigs. Then he joined JM WAVE station in Miami, and became part of the Bayo-Pawley mission to intercept two ranking Soviet defectors in Cuba. David Morales was also part of that mission, and so was John Martino. Larry Hancock maintains that John Martino had first-hand knowledge of the JFK Assassination, and I place a lot of weight in Larry Hancock's objective scholarship (as well as in his scholastic relationship with Bill Simpich). As with David Morales and E. Howard Hunt, I can accept the status of Rip Robertson as a rogue CIA guy who joined the Civilian plot in Dallas. (Larry Hancock, for example, records that John Martino was an active speaker in the John Birch Society in 1963.) Like Frank Sturgis, civilian John Martino was no CIA officer, but only a fanatic mercenary. Other civilian names associated with Rip Robertson include Roy Hargraves, Gerry Patrick Hemming and Felipe Vidal Santiago. Santiago was a Cuban naval officer who opposed Fidel Castro in 1959. In 1961 he joined Interpen, along with Hemming, Hargraves, Loran Hall and Larry Howard, and made Cuba raids with them. According to Dick Russell (TMWKTM, 1993) Felipe Santiago was an information channel General Walker in Dallas. Larry Hancock (SWHT, 2003) agrees with this. Some researchers claim that they have photographic evidence of Felipe Santiago on the Grassy Knoll with Roy Hargraves. Some claim photo evidence of Rip Robertson on the corner of Main and Houston in Dealey Plaza. I accept as a good possibility that these Radical Right mercenaries eventually joined a plot with CIA rogues to support General Walker in a Dallas-based plot to kill JFK. The only question is the role that they played. For example, E. Howard Hunt himself claimed to have a role "on the sidelines." Felipe Santiago reported that General Walker at one point "lost interest in the Cuban Exiles." If that's correct, then that was because he had enough fanatical, local volunteers among the Radical Right inside Dallas. BOTTOM LINE: No CIA plot. These players worked within a local Dallas plot, led by General Walker. I think Felipe Santiago's mention -- along with Gerry Patrick Hemming's mention, and Loran Hall's mention of General Walker -- provides ample reason to keep digging inside Dallas. There's my opinion. All best, --Paul
  5. Hi Jason, The work of Jim Garrison shows a large quantity of investigation of the Radical Right in Louisiana and the USA South generally, and then he suddenly shifted to blaming the CIA near the end of his work, in 1968, when the Trial of Clay Shaw came to court (with flimsy evidence). The turning point was possibly when David Ferrie turned up dead -- either by suicide or murder. If it was a murder, I see no reason to blame the CIA rather than to blame the Radical Right. The Radical Right was just as willing to commit murder for its cause as any other fanatical group. (The murder of Medgar Evers on June 12, 1963, and the bombing of the 16th Street Baptist Church on September 15, 1963, provide sufficient evidence.) With the death of David Ferrie on February 22, 1967, the case of Jim Garrison was also dead. This may have contributed to his change of heart. One should know something about the John Birch Society, however. Even though most JBS members were middle class true-believers who never suspected foul play in the group -- those who organized it from the beginning knew the model -- in fighting the "Communist Party model" of local activism, the JBS imitated the Communist Party model of local activism. This was part of its vast power in the South -- the JBS consisted of local cells with an organized head which was well-funded. At a certain point, its allies included the coast-to-coast, heavily armed militia of the Minutemen. This was no militia of the US government. This was a coast-to-coast militia dedicated to toppling the US Government, which it called the "Eastern Establishment." They convinced each other that Washington DC was Communist, through and through. Based on this ideology, JFK was "wanted for treason." Yet Jim Garrison could not find enough data to solve his case. He had hoped that somebody in Dallas would step forward. To push this along, he floated a lie that he really had some secret person in Dallas already, who was gathering all available data. Yet the plotters in Dallas merely had to stick together and keep their mouths shut. This alone would guarantee that Jim Garrison's case would fail. All best, --Paul
  6. Hi Jason, The problem of Jim Garrison is one of the most interesting in all of 20th cetury US history. Jim Garrison surprised the world with his material evidence that New Orleans was a key feature of the JFK assassination. Jeff Caufield (2015) who maintains a Walker-did-it CT, says that he had access to all of Jim Garrison's papers in his reasearch. Jeff Caufield told me personally that in his opinion, Jim Garrison's first CT was that the Radical-Right-did-it, and that he only changed his position when he realized he would get no official help from anybody in the US Government (or in Dallas) for his important research. It was a matter of personal safety that led Garrison to blame the CIA -- because the CIA does not hit back. To address your numbered questions and documented sources: 1. I wholeheartedly agree with Jim Garrison that "serious students" of the JFK Assassination believe that LHO was a right winger. *** I myself maintain that LHO was an extreme right-winger in New Orleans. *** LHO was also a moderate right-winger (a Marine) since 1957, except for one brief period in early 1963, when he came under the influence of George De Mohrenschildt, a braggart who put on airs of being a CIA agent. Actually, George did some Russian translation for the FBI and CIA on occasion, and was certainly never a CIA official. *** Yet, believing that George De Mohrenschildt was a CIA operative, and might help get LHO a job in the CIA, our young LHO clung to old George. *** When George DM made it clear to LHO that George hated General Walker with a purple passion, our young and naive LHO made fast plans to please George by killing General Walker. (That's been my CT for longer than I've been on this Forum). *** George DM and his young engineer pal, Volkmar Schmidt, who both bad-mouthed General Walker -- certainly didn't want LHO to kill General Walker. They were both shocked by this outrage, and they distanced themselves from LHO immediately and forever. *** After this stupid act -- which LHO probably regretted as soon as he saw that George and Volkmar ran away -- LHO returned to the Right wing. *** Why LHO moved to New Orleans -- within days after the Walker shooting -- is unclear to all CTers for the past half-century. *** In my CT, General Walker learned of LHO's name (from Voshinin/FBI) in connection with this attempt on his life, and called his friends in the Right Wing immediately (Easter Sunday 14 April 1963). *** Walker quickly learned from his many rightist contacts in New Orleans that David Ferrie, who worked closely under Guy Banister, had known LHO since childhood. *** In my CT, Walker, Banister, Ferrie and Shaw hatched a plan to get revenge on LHO (starting on Easter Sunday 14 April 1963). *** If LHO wanted to be in the CIA so badly, they would promise LHO a guaranteed job in the CIA. All LHO had to do was to kill Fidel Castro. *** According to their secret plan, if LHO could kill Fidel Castro, he would be forgiven. Otherwise, LHO would be framed so perfectly that LHO could be killed anywhere in the USA with impunity. 2. There is never any reason to bring the CIA into the JFK Assassination when all the material evidence points to the Radical Right wing. They are two, vastly separate entities. *** According to Jeff Caufield, the original work of Jim Garrison was a focus on the Radical Right wing -- and he could get data on New Orleans players, but he failed to get information on Dallas players. He turned to the CIA-did-it CT for sheer safety. 3. The same applies to Guy Banister. When we recognize that he was a Radical Right leader -- a racist who ran for public office on the platform of racially segregating Louisiana Public Schools -- there is no need to bring the CIA into the picture. 4. I think that Jim Garrison is 100% correct to recognize that David Ferrie reactivated his former teenage student Lee Harvey Oswald into Radical Right politics in New Orleans. *** Jim Garrison did historians a massive service -- single-handedly -- with his discovery of a Radical Right plot in New Orleans to frame LHO as a Fake FPCC Communist. 5. I personally doubt that Oswald's patsyhood began with the 21 July 1963 FBI raid on the Cuba Raid camp at Lake Pontchartrain, led by David Ferrie on land owned by Carlos Marcello. *** As an aside, the name of Carlos Marcello was an alias. It means 'Karl Marx' in Spanish. It was a joke, of course. Even Mafia bosses have a sense of humor. *** In my opinion, since Oswald created a Fake FPCC in May 1963, his patsification began after the Walker shooting. I think the timeline supports this theory. *** Now, it may be possible that Walker and Banister obtained extra support from their Rightist lackeys, like Gerry Patrick Hemming, Loran Hall and Larry Howard, to kill JFK on the basis of this FBI shutdown of their Cuba Raid camp on 21 July 1963. *** It is likely that the JFK Assassination itself was not hatched early in the year, but it became more and more plausible as the year unfolded. *** It is interesting that LHO was in New Orleans when this FBI raid occurred on a Cuba Raid camp in which LHO was involved. *** Yet the first stirrings of the JFK Assassination -- in my opinion -- can be seen in the murder of NAACP hero Medgar Evers in his driveway in Mississippi very early in the morning of 12 June 1963. *** On the night of 11 June 1963 JFK appeared on television to announce that he supported Rev. Martin Luther King, Jr. in his plea for Civil Rights in the USA. *** Actually, it was less than six hours after this JFK speech that Medgar Evers was shot and killed. *** Medgar Evers was best known for advising James Meredith in his bid to be the first Black American to attend Ole Miss University in September 1962. *** It was at Ole Miss that General Walker took his greatest political defeat -- not only in the failure of his massive and deadly protest march at Ole Miss on 30 September 1962, but also in Walker's involuntary commitment to a US Army insane asylum the very next morning, on 01 October 1962, ordered by JFK and RFK. All best, --Paul
  7. Mark and Mervyn, If there is material evidence that Gordon McLendon, radio baron of Texas, who lived in Dallas, was directly involved in the JFK Assassination, I have not seen it after a quarter century of reading CT books. I go by material evidence and eye-witness accounts. Otherwise, I don't offer speculations. That's the nature of this Forum thread. What material evidence does anybody have on McLendon? Yes, he was a Radical Rightist in Dallas. Yes, he hated the Brown Decision and held racist views. Yes, he eventually quit the Democratic Party because of LBJ's policies. Yes -- he probably cheered when JFK was assassinated. But so did thousands of people -- or ever hundreds of thousands of people. That is not enough to link him directly with the JFK Assassination. Jason and I have provided material evidence to demonstrate to show that General Walker was behind the Adlai Stevenson humiliation in Dallas. What similar documentation do you have on the activism of Gordon McLendon? H.L.Hunt financed General Walker's campaign for Texas Governor in 1962. What role did Gordon McLendon directly play in politics in 1962? What we have in Gordon McLendon is a rich guy in Dallas who had Rightist views. He was a highly educated person and also a veteran of WW2. He was a leader in his community. Was he a member of the JBS? Was he a member of the NIC? Was he a member of the Minutemen? Was he a member of the WCC? Did he have his hooks in the Dallas Police Department? Did he have his hooks in the Dallas Sheriff's Department? Did he have his hooks in the Dallas FBI or the Dallas Secret Service? WHAT MATERIAL EVIDENCE DO YOU HAVE? PLEASE SHOW ME. As I say, Jason and I have about 40 pages on this thread showing DOCUMENTS from the FBI and other Government Agencies on General Walker and the suspicious behavior of the Dallas Police and Deputies. The connection between the Dallas Police and the Dallas Minutemen was already documented in 1971 by FBI agent William Turner (a late member of this FORUM). I've seen nothing about Gordon McLendon except guesswork and "what if" sentences. Sincerely, --Paul Trejo
  8. Also, Jason, that quote by Harrison Livingston moves the center of the JFK plot from Dallas to New Orleans and Guy Banister. That opens up a whole new can of worms. For one thing, no less a figure than Jim Garrison already did his best to bring a JFK trial to New Orleans, in the trial of Clay Shaw. Garrison lost. For another thing, it detracts from a proposition that the Dallas Police and Deputies killed JFK alone. If they need a leader, then why a leader from New Orleans, instead of one from Dallas? All best, --Paul
  9. Good points, Jason. Is it possible that the Dallas Police and Deputies killed JFK alone, without an overlord? Yes, it is! Their positions in Dallas and their contradictory WC testimony make this eminently possible. However -- although we don't have to delve into the details of the infamous Lee Harvey Oswald (LHO), we do need to explain his existence in the Dallas plot in the first place. For example, why is LHO featured in the Jack Martin film? Why is LHO featured in the Walker shooting? The existence of LHO in the JFK saga drags General Walker into the scenario immediately. Is that really tangential? An accident? Irrelevant? Also, consider General Walker as a Radical Right figure in Dallas. Good friend of the richest man in town, organizer of the Adlai Stevenson humiliation, leader of a local JBS chapter, leader of the Dallas Minutemen and a former US Army General with 30 years tenure including combat experience in WW2 and Korea -- younger than Sorrells, younger than Fritz, younger than Decker -- is his presence truly accidental? All best, --Paul
  10. Jason, After all we have said on this thread in the past two months -- it seems clear that officials in the Dallas Police and Sheriff's Departments comprised the ground-crew of the JFK Assassination, and silencing of the Patsy. However -- I have so far been unable to find material evidence linking anybody directly to General Walker except for James Hosty. Hosty personally admitted (1996) that he tracked General Walker as a professional necessity. Hosty also told Penn Jones, Jr. that Robert Alan Surrey was his "bridge parther." Surrey was the President of General Walker's publishing company. Jeff Caufield found a direct contact point between General Walker and J.D. Tippit -- there at Austin's BBQ in Dallas, on weekends, where the JBS would meet. Yet that is all the material evidence I have found. I feel certain that more must exist -- if my CT is correct. I believe that Supreme Court Chief Justice Earl Warren deliberately "preserved" the JFK Assassination solution for future generations to see. As for other, incidental material evidence, we can link Lee Harvey Oswald with DPD officer Roscoe White through the Oswald Backyard Photographs. Also, we can link General Walker to Lee Harvey Oswald silently through the home movie of young Minuteman Jack T. Martin -- filming the bullet holes in Walker's home as well as Oswald being arrested on Canal Street, in the same roll of film. But this is a far cry from what I ultimately need -- namely -- a directly linkage between General Walker and these seven people: 1. Sheriff Bill Decker 2. Captain Will Fritz 3. Chief Jesse Curry 4. SS agent Forrest Sorrels 5. FBI agent James Bookhout 6. USPD Inspector Harry Holmes 7. Deputy Buddy Walthers In my opinion, all of these men were linked with General Walker through the John Birch Society and the local, "Friends of Walker" committee. I sincerely believe that material evidence of this linkage will eventually turn up. There are many other players in the DPD and Sheriff's office, but these seven must appear in any material evidence -- since they are at the commanding rank, and their WC testimony breaks apart so quickly and so consistently. There's my opinion. All best, --Paul
  11. Hi Jason, I'm going back a couple of weeks, because there is still so much data to review -- we are covering so much ground that it is sometimes useful to review a past point. You're right that Adlai Stevenson did not name General Walker in his warning to JFK about Dallas (that was recorded by anybody). In my view, this is because Adlai Stevenson and his closest advisors were so myopic that they never looked around the USA to fairly estimate their opposition. They honestly didn't know Dallas politics. We know more about it today than the UN officials in 1963 knew. It's different with the FBI. They had the voice of every policeman in the USA, potentially. There was no dirt in the USA that they didn't hear. Your documents show that the FBI and Secret Service in Dallas know about General Walker -- but here are some documents that show that EVERYBODY in Dallas knew it. http://www.pet880.com/images/19631023_Dallas_Morning_News.pdf http://www.pet880.com/images/19631024_Dallas_Morning_News.pdf http://www.pet880.com/images/19631024_Texas_Observer.pdf Next: to get an idea about the true excitement of the attack on Adlai Stevenson outside of the Auditorium, after his incomplete speech, here's this local news report: http://www.pet880.com/images/19631025_Dallas_Morning_News.pdf Further: here is an interview of Larrie Schmidt, the morning after the humiliation of Adlai Stevenson, with Larrie taking satisfaction in a job well done, as he told me in 2012. http://www.pet880.com/images/19631027_Dallas_Times_Herald.jpg Finally, here's an interview of General Walker, about two weeks later, with Walker taking satisfaction in a job well done. http://www.pet880.com/images/19631108_Walkers_UpsDown_Flag.JPG As we can see, this news was widespread in Dallas. Yet I am convinced that people outside of Dallas didn't really care very much about it. They had their own, local problems. All best, --Paul
  12. Hi Jason, In my reading, the Mexico City trip by Lee Harvey Oswald (LHO) at the end of the summer of 1963 was the payoff for this FPCC scam. We have documents from The Hardway-Lopez Report (2003) that reveal exactly what LHO was doing in Mexico City. He brought a Fake Resume to prove that he was a Fake Official from the Fake FPCC in New Orleans. In that Fake Resume he included a Fake Communist Party membership card (while Communists didn't have membership cards). LHO also included newspaper clippings from New Orleans that reported his arrest for his "street fight" with Carlos Bringuier, and his radio and TV appearances in New Orleans in which he claimed he represented the FPCC. With this massive amount of Fake ID, it is clear to me that LHO was trying to get an expedited Visa to Cuba as an "official" FPCC Secretary. This was the strategy. Evidently LHO was promised a lot of money if he could help a Havana Team kill Fidel Castro. That's my reading. The clerks at the Cuban Consulate in Mexico City could barely stifle their laughter. They most likely had a printed list of official FPCC Secretaries -- and Lee Harvey Oswald wasn't on their list. Fidel Castro would soon hear of this farce. All best, --Paul
  13. Hi Jason, I am aware of three different Walker-did-it CT's now, namely: A. Jim Root's (ca. 2005) B. Mine (ca. 2010) C. Jeff Caufield's (ca. 2015) A. For Jim Root, the relationship of General Walker with Lee Harvey Oswald (LHO) was direct, and began immediately before LHO "fake defected" to the USSR in late 1959. This was exactly the time when President Eisenhower sent General Walker to Germany. B. For me, the relationship of General Walker to LHO was never direct, but began after the Walker shooting of April 10, 1963, four days later, when Voshinin told the FBI. After the FBI told Walker, General Walker began to track LHO like a hawk. C. For Jeff Caufield, the relationship of General Walker to LHO was direct, and started soon after LHO returned to Texas from the USSR. General Walker took LHO under his wing, and used LHO for a "false flag" shooting attempt on April 10, 1963, for publicity. It was this sneaky success that led LHO and others to believe General Walker when he said that the JFK shooting would also be a "false flag" attempt. One point upon which all three of us agree -- LHO was never a Communist at any time, nor was he ever a genuine officer of the FPCC. He was always a "Fake Communist" for personal interests or Rightist intrigue. You and I agree solidly, Jason, that New Orleans in the summer of 1963 is a crucial element to all CT's. After Jim Garrison, it is impossible to ignore this period. Whether Jim Garrison was correct in his conclusions is disputed -- but whether he was correct in his history of New Orleans in the summer of 1963, is indisputable. It is notable, however, that although the FBI knows a lot about the Guy Banister period at 544 Camp Street in New Orleans, the Warren Commission offers only the slightest hint of the New Orleans period in the WC testimony. What we obtain from the WC testimony is mainly from the attorney, Dean Andrews, Jr. who was the person who announced "Clay Bertrand" to the world. Bertrand, a very wealthy homosexual in New Orleans, hired Dean Andrews to assist LHO with LHO's Marine discharge dispute. Secondly, we hear from Carlos Bringuier, who had an alleged "fight" with LHO on Canal Street over Fidel Castro, when LHO was arrested. Bringuier sticks to his story to this very day. Thirdly, we hear from the arresting officer of that stunt. Oddly, at New Orleans prison, LHO asked to speak with the FBI. Imagine that. The FBI destroyed the notes of that interview, IIRC. Fourthly, we hear of "mistaken identity" sightings of LHO in New Orleans -- useless information. Clearly, Jim Garrison collected a hundred times more information about LHO in New Orleans in the summer of 1963. Nobody ever collected more on this period. It is interesting that Jeff Caufield used all of Jim Garrison's papers to construct his own CT. As for Arnesto Rodriguez, his name first appeared to me in the book by Caufield (2015), but from those snippets I don't detect a close relationship. There is hear-say, but nothing tangible. A recording of LHO from radio and TV broadcasts was available starting in 1963 and can still be found today -- so that is proof of nothing. Rodriguez mainly repeats the words of Carlos Bringuier, word-for-word, like a puppet. Going only by the papers of Jim Garrison, Jeff Caufield says that a Radical Right CT of the JFK Assassination is the most plausible. Garrison turned to a CIA-did-it CT only near the end of his investigation -- partly because nobody from Dallas dared step forward. I will respond to your numbered, blue questions from the viewpoint of Jim Garrsion. 1. Oswald is totally immersed in anti-Castro activities in New Orleans. Bringuier knew this, and lied to the WC. Bringuier is one of the WC witnesses we will want to analyze as we scrutinize the Radical Right -- though his story seems quite self-consistent. 2. Oswald works with Guy Banister, David Ferrie, Clay Shaw, Jack S. Martin, Fred Crisman, Tommy Beckham, Ed Butler and Carlos Bringuier to create a Fake FPCC at 544 Camp Street. Jim Garrison was the first person in US History to figure that out. Well, after all, he was the District Attorney of New Orleans in 1962-1973, so this was his professional purview. This was total immersion for LHO. Anybody who knows the history of the FPCC -- for example, Harry Dean, a former Secretary of the FPCC in Chicago -- knows that the FPCC was secretly a Communist organization collecting funds for Fidel Castro. To infiltrate the FPCC was a dangerous task -- as Harry Dean had warned General Walker, Loran Hall, Gabby Gabaldon, John Rousselot, Larry Howard and various JBS members in Southern California in mid-September 1963. It was well known in underground political circles, moreover, that any genuine Officer of the FPCC would get an expedited visa to Cuba. In a Radical Right CT, the purpose of LHO in Mexico City was to display his Fake FPCC credentials (published in the Hardway-Lopez Report, 2003) to get an expedited visa to Cuba. Given this, LHO was proposed to join an assassination plot in Havana to kill Fidel Casto. (This was part of "The AMLASH Legacy," according to David Altee Phillips, 1988). So, this is how deeply LHO was involved in anti-Castro activities, period. This is how we know Bringuier is lying -- Bringuier was also immersed in anti-Castro activities -- and also working with Guy Banister and Ed Butler at 544 Camp Street. All best, --Paul
  14. Hi Jason, These are are all great questions, and I'm pleased for the opportunity to offer my opinion about them. A. I tentatively disagree with any direct relationship between the Walker shooting in Dallas, and LHO's Bringuier scuffle in New Orleans. *** They are unrelated in degree of violence. That's the first clue. A fair fight is one thing -- sniper fire is something else entirely. *** Yet they are not even related in terms of Communist orientation. The shooters at General Walker were never arrested. B. IMHO, the Walker shooting was motivated by George De Mohrenschildt (DM). I have been saying this for years, following my study of the biography of George DM by Bruce Campbell Adamson (1999). *** As a Russian refugee, George DM hated both Communists and Fascists -- a consequence of WW2. *** George DM had the ear of Lee Harvey Oswald (LHO) from 6/1962 to 3/1963. At that time, LHO called General Walker, "General Fokker" (c.f. George DM's 1977 manuscript). C. HOWEVER -- I must now explain the bizare circumstance that General Walker and Carlos Bringuier knew each other very well, through the John Birch Society, and that LHO interacted with both -- Walker as a target, and Bringuier as a confederate. D. The key to my interpretation is that LHO *actually* clashed with Walker, but cooperated with Bringuier by *pretending* to clash with him. E. The question becomes this: How do we understand this triplet: Walker-LHO-Bringuier? I will now address your numbered questions in blue: 1. My first belief is that Bringuier and Walker are connected through Guy Banister. *** My opinion may change depending on the date of that JBS Speakers' Poster that you posted, Jason. It says "February," but not the YEAR. Yet the YEAR is crucial. *** If the year of that poster is 1963, then Walker knew Bringuier BEFORE the Walker shooting. *** If the year of that poster is 1964, then Walker knew Bringuier AFTER the Walker shooting, from NOLA, and so from Guy Banister. 2. Bringuier denies knowing Guy Banister, and yet DRE shared the same address as Guy Banister, and they were on the same side in politics -- so Bruingieur isn't telling the Truth. *** The Truth would have exposed the JFK Assassination plotters among the Radical Right confederates of General Walker in New Orleans. 3. According to Carlos Bringuier -- who wishes to hide the fact that Guy Banister managed LHO in New Orleans -- the reference to William Reiley is to Reiley Coffee Company in New Orleans, for whom LHO worked for 10 weeks. 4. According to Harold Weisberg, Bringuier and Walker meet in Dallas, but that was AFTER the Walker shooting. 5. Walker, Surrey and Bringuier are clearly linked after the Walker shooting -- because Walker and Surrey were inseparable. *** The Big Question I have is whether they were ever linked BEFORE the Walker shooting. 6. I always doubt "Oswald sighting" reports because they are so common, and every famous homicide case has its share of "mistaken identity" cases. Unless something material or tangible is identified aside from "I think I saw his face," then I discount it 100%. All best, --Paul
  15. Hi Jason, If anything was ever going to change my mind that General Walker and Lee Harvey Oswald (LHO) were actually cooperating in the 10April1963 shooting at Walker in Dallas, it would be this connection with Carlos Bringuier. For years I have insisted on this Forum that LHO truly shot at General Walker, and that General Walker then tracked and secretly manipulated LHO for the rest of 1963, until he could get LHO into a position to take revenge. In my CT, as I repeatedly said, General Walker took revenge by blaming the JFK Assassination on LHO, and then supporting the DPD to silence LHO in any way they chose. HOWEVER -- the fact that LHO plotted with Guy Banister in New Orleans in 1963 along with Cuban refugee, Carlos Bringuier, who was a personal friend of General Walker -- PLUS the fact that General Walker knew Carlos Bringuier as early as February, 1963, must make me pause and question my own CT. Let's review the implications, consequences and possible outcomes of such a connection. 1. I am convinced that LHO and Carlos Bringuier worked with Ed Butler, the INCA propaganda expert, to obtain film of LHO on Canal Street, with radio and TV spots. My opinion echoes that of Jeff Caufield, who reports that Guy Banister and Ed Butler often worked together. 2. I am convinced that LHO and Carlos Bringuier "staged" the so-called "fight" on Canal Street in New Orleans. My opinion echoes that of the arresting officer. *** Also, LHO wrote to the Communist Party USA the week before, to tell him that he had a fight with a Cuban refugee. So, it was all staged, IMHO. 3. I am convinced that General Walker directed a young Minuteman, Jack T. Martin, from his home in Minnesota, to Dallas to film the holes in Walker's house, to New Orleans to film LHO on Canal Street in a fight with Carlos Bringuier. 4. I AGREE WITH YOUR ASSESSMENT, JASON, that General Walker clearly knew in advance exactly where LHO would be in New Orleans, on what day, at what time. with which associates, and doing what activity. 5. One implication is that General Walker, Carlos Bringuier and LHO were working together before April, 1963 -- that is a distinct possibility. 6. This would tend to validate Jeff Caufield's theory (2015) that LHO shooting at General Walker on April 10, 1963 was a "staged" or "false flag" publicity stunt. 7. Let us now stipulate this, for the sake of argument. 8. This suggests that LHO and General Walker were working together as early as February, 1963, at the same time that George De Mohrenschildt was telling LHO that General Walker was a terrible person, calling him, "General Fokker." *** This was also the same time that Volkmar Schmidt was telling LHO that General Walker was "as bad as Hitler." 9. So -- if LHO was working with General Walker in February, 1963 -- then he would have been toying with George DM and Volkmar Schmidt, pretending to be their friend, when actually he was their political enemy. 10. Although that is a distinct possibility -- it doesn't have the ring of truth, IMHO. 11. The necessary evidence would be as follows: Do we have evidence of LHO and Bringuier at any time BEFORE the Walker shooting? 12. If we do, then Jeff Caufield's theory would have some serious weight behind it. 13. In this new theory, General Walker was even more crafty than I expected -- he hated LHO simply because LHO had allegedly "defected" to Russia, and had brought back to Dallas a Russian bride. *** It was for this reason alone (and not because of any Walker shooting) that General Walker targeted LHO for a death sentence. *** It was for this reason alone that General Walker worked on LHO for a solid year (from March 1963 or even earlier, perhaps going back to 1962) to sheep-dip LHO as a Communist, and an FPCC officer. 14. However, lacking any evidence that LHO knew Carlos Bringuier BEFORE the Walker shooting (April 10, 1963), this would be a serious argument AGAINST Caufield in my reading. 15. Unless we can find some evidence linking LHO with Carlos Bringuier BEFORE the Walker shooting, then I find myself back to my original CT. *** In my original CT, the first that General Walker gave a hoot about LHO was AFTER the Walker shooting -- precisely because of the shooting. The shooting changed everything for both men. *** On Easter Sunday, 1963, when the FBI called Walker to tell him what Natasha Voshinin said that morning, Walker immediately told Guy Banister his political associate in New Orleans. *** By a lucky coincidence, Guy Banister's close associate in New Orleans, namely, David Ferrie, knew LHO since childhood. Manipulating LHO would now be a snap. 16. CONCLUSION: To make an earlier connection between General Walker and LHO than the Walker shooting -- MATERIAL EVIDENCE IS STILL REQUIRED. All best, --Paul P.S. Jason, you show a poster of an Anti-Communist School featuring many speakers, including segregationist Reverend Billy James Hargis, along with Carlos Bringuier and General Walker. The poster said this seminar was scheduled for "February" but I can't see a YEAR in that poster. Do you see a year mentioned? Is it 1963? Or is it 1964. That would also make a difference to my theory.
