    A Lie Too Big To Fail by Lisa Pease

    What sense does it make that a shooter behind RFK would miss badly enough to injure others? Blanks seems very illogical

    I couldn’t open the file after a long download

    What did WFB Jr. want removed about JFK?

    Multiculturalism doesn’t work? Will never work? You think it impossible to not fear ‘otherness’?

    Robert - I take your point. But I disagree in a fundamental way. There are real racists. And then there are people and places, like parts of the US south, South Africa during Apartheid, and Israel now, where one can make the case that racism is not an accurate enough word to describe the actions of people anxious to hold on to their rulership when they are, or become, the minority. So - fine - you can make a case that when a minority in power protects themselves it’s not necessarily racist. That does not in any way discount racism, which is alive and well and has a long and provable written history. Heck, I remember my then father in law explaining to me why all the waiters in a restaurant in Texas we were dining in were white, and all the busboys black. Hint - It had nothing to do with multicultural fears. Yes, not all racists are white. But the history of white racism is real and worldwide. I could say so much more, and others reading this will probably find fault with my partial acceptance of your theory. The world seems to be divided into two basic types: People who embrace humanity as a whole, and people who fear the OTHER.
  5. And that’s about it. Haven’t seen anything mainstream. I’m surprised, though maybe shouldn’t be, that a petition signed by family members of JFK and MLK, on this MLK day, should go unnoticed. Do you think anyone in the House will bring it up and support it?

    Lumpkin yes, in the earlier book. I’m not home right now but will look at the index for Castorr. Whitmeyer is not in either book.

    Steve - I now own both Brandstetter books. The 488th is mentioned in both. John Newman, in his December presentation in a symposium in SF, used his time to talk about Veciana and Alpha 66. What is clear is that they were being run by the US Army, not CIA. The Assistant Chief of Staff Intelligence, ACSI, Brandstetter’s handlers, were also Veciana”s.

    I would say it makes him a fraud. I’m not taking sides on Harper vs DiEugenio. I’d talk with you about it privately if you’d like. I have respect for both of you, which makes this difficult. but my point is that Buckley was in fact CIA, provably. Being ‘uninterested’ in the 1960’s assassinations makes him something other than a racist or a lousy writer, doesn’t it? Could we perhaps see him as fair and balanced except when it came to truth vs power?
  9. I haven’t seen it yet on major US media, but I’m doing what I can on FB. I’m tuned in to CNN to see if they will cover it. I’ve googled and come up with nothing from the Times or Post.
  10. I think we have a good crop of new Congress people. I’m hopeful it’s the beginning of a new left populism.

    All this relates directly to Jack Crichton, who worked for Degolyer and McNaughton and headed the Empirre trust company, which negotiated with Franco’s government for drilling rights in Spain. Apparently Skorzeny was involved in this negotiation.
  12. I’d post a summary of what the Green New Deal proposes to be, but I’m sure you can find it if you haven’t read it. It’s about much more than climate change.
  13. I think that unless and until we can see two versions of the Z film side by side, unedited and edited, it will remain a mystery. Someone correct me - has anyone seen both?
