  1. WHEN does Oswald crystallize into the patsy?

    Me? No. I then queried him about whether he talked with Michael Clark. His answer was not understood so I asked again. I guess his answer is that the only communication he had with him was on a previous thread. Is it not obvious to you that I asked him these questions because I found Michael's statement questionable? He didn't say definitively 'no' until I repeated the question. I proceeded from there because I wanted an answer on the record as to whether he ever communicated with Michael Clark.

    Harry - did you talk with forum member Michael Clark?
  3. 16 mind-blowing facts about who really killed JFK

    Jim - media like NBC and CNN have reported the $200billiom figure and explained it by saying that huge sums are in other people's accounts which Putin controls. I am very confused about all this. There is a huge concensus on Putin being a murderous thug, and the head of a group of oligarchs whom he has helped make rich, one of whom had his $25 billion fortune stolen from him by Putin himself, who had this oligarch arrested and then took all his assets. That sounds pretty bad. Then there are the dead journalists, the arrests of 'leakers' in the cyber security wing of the FSB. Rachel Maddow in particular has done a lot of reporting on all this, and she has some credibility in my eyes. Is one of your primary sources for Russia and Ukraine news Global Research? Michel Chussodovsky was on KPFA during the presidential campaign of 2016 and said point blank that Clinton was more dangerous than Trump. I found that statement outrageous. Honestly, I am open to the idea that we are being fed a bunch of lies by the 'Deep State' in regards to Russia. But to me this whole news cycle feels different in some way than during the Cold War. I think David Talbot may share some of your views on this, and I respect him as a journalist and author too. I guess it boils down to this question: is there a real nexus between Russian crime families, Trump operatives, Brexit enablers, hackers, data miners, that altered the course of the election in order to keep Clinton out of the WH? What would be the reason for that? I find the argument that this was a conflict between the old order and a new gang persuasive. But if it's true, the new gang ain't my friend either. Hence painting Putin favorably, as Oliver Stone did and as you appear to be doing, rubs me wrong. But I am not fully convinced that I have a handle on what's going on, here, in the Ukraine, or elsewhere. It's a strange and complex situation.
  4. WHEN does Oswald crystallize into the patsy?

    Harry - address the question please. Is Michael Clark correct when he asserts that you called Paul Trejo a crook, a thief, and a xxxx?
  5. 16 mind-blowing facts about who really killed JFK

    According to the Wiki article, General Lansdale was chief of operations, Cuba project.
  6. Trejo used to say, often, that Hoover prevented Civil War by going with the lone nut rather than going after the radical right. Has he changed his tune?
  7. David and Andrej - very interesting posts filling in some biographical details on the Cabell brothers that I was not aware of. Rather than being in its death throes, the CIA theory is alive and well. But I seriously believe it is limiting to think that it's either the CIA, or a right wing cabal. What we have is a right wing cabal made up of CIA, Pentagon, Defense and Oil execs who were also Birchers, Minutemen, Nazis, etc. Too many generals and colonels and ex-military to ignore. Jim - I want to address your point by asking you what your involvement was with the AARB? If none, why did you have faith in their ultimate integrity? Does anyone think we are going to see the Joannides files in this document release? Or Phillips? Do you think QJWIN will be identified? Or will we find out more about Thomas Eli Davis? Or Gordon McLendon? What about the 488th reserve Army Intel group led by Jack Crichton and Colonel Brandstetter?
  8. Revolt of the Colonels?

    Always the money.
  9. The St. Ruthie and St. Michael "We both know" call

    In my reading of the letter, the goal was to tie the FPCC to a 'known' communist, not to sheep dip Oswald as a communist assassin. It was common practice to discredit left wing groups by smearing them with the Communist brush, and we do know that FPCC was a target of such US Intel operations. Doesn't this make more sense? It explains Oswald's trip to MC much better than the fake news that he was really part of a kill Castro operation. Those who sent him to MC knew that he would never be given passage to Cuba. Once he was there however, someone got the idea to tie Oswald to KGB and Kostikov, and impersonated him to accomplish that. This was very likely sheepdipping in preparation for making him a future patsy.
  10. i wonder how many CIA assets and agents it takes to screw in Paul Trejo's light bulb?
  11. Revolt of the Colonels?

    Interesting find in the new docs. Not a Colonel, but his brother Charles was a General.
  12. The latest from Ruth Paine

    Thanks for referencing a statement I made and stand by. joe - I think you make excellent points about Michael Paine. Heck, I was 15 in 1963 and would have found M Paines take on Oswald as shallow then as I do now.
  13. Who financed the JFK hit?

    Thanks for the links. I'll read them soon. But it is this nexus I'm thinking of.
  14. Who financed the JFK hit?

    I think the financing came from Texas, possibly the same guys that funded Operation 40
  15. The St. Ruthie and St. Michael "We both know" call

    Mark - interesting idea that the Paines were willing participants in an FBI tap.
