  1. W., Thanks, I was going to bring that up in response to your thread title. https://twitter.com/ProjectLincoln/status/1279251628466622466 I was reading a fascinating piece the other day from a speech coach (I'm sorry, I don't remember who). He was saying that Trump can't read. If you close your eyes and listen closely to Trump's, Mount Rushmore speech, you can hear him pause every two or three words, many times at very inappropriate places before he goes on to the next two or three words. The timing is way off. I can remember my mother telling me when I was just a little kid struggling with a big word, "Sound it out". That's what Trump is doing. He's sounding words out in his mind before he verbally expresses it. His speech writers have to put his speeches on a teleprompter because otherwise he would take off on his usual stream-of conscious psycho babble, but he can't pull it off because he can't read.

  2. The Daily Beast has come out with a list of the only five books you need to read to understand the JFK assassination. The Only Books on JFK’s Assassination You Need to Read https://www.thedailybeast.com/the-only-books-on-jfks-assassination-you-need-to-read?ref=home?ref=home The first one they list is, "Oswald's Tale" by Norman Mailer. I do not subscribe to this website, so I don't know what the other four books are. Perhaps someone who does subscribe could list the other four. This is for discussion only. I personally don't believe you can understand what happened in JFK's assassination by limiting your reading to only five books. Steve Thomas
  3. https://www.huffpost.com/entry/trump-administration-says-its-too-soon-to-say-if-safe-to-hold-rnc-in-florida_n_5f0213f3c5b6ca970920116a Trump Administration Says It’s Too Soon To Say If Safe To Hold RNC In Florida “We will have to see how this unfolds in Florida and elsewhere around the country,” Stephen Hahn told CNN. WASHINGTON (Reuters) - A top Trump administration health official said on Sunday it was not clear whether it will be safe to hold the Republican National Convention in Jacksonville next month, as Florida sees record numbers of coronavirus cases. Stephen Hahn, the Food and Drug Administration commissioner, also refused to confirm President Donald Trump’s claim that 99% of coronavirus cases were harmless and called the situation a “serious problem.” This is funny. Jacksonville started requiring masks for all indoor events as of June 29th. How will Trump get out of it? If he defies the local authorities, how will that look for the Law and Order President? The RNC is screwed. Steve Thomas
  4. Executive Order on Building and Rebuilding Monuments to American Heroes Issued on: July 3, 2020 https://www.whitehouse.gov/presidential-actions/executive-order-building-rebuilding-monuments-american-heroes/ (b) Within 60 days of the date of this order, the Task Force shall submit a report to the President through the Assistant to the President for Domestic Policy that proposes options for the creation of the National Garden, including potential locations for the site. (v) The National Garden should be located on a site of natural beauty that enables visitors to enjoy nature, walk among the statues, and be inspired to learn about great figures of America’s history. The site should be proximate to at least one major population center, and the site should not cause significant disruption to the local community. (c) To the extent appropriate and consistent with applicable law, these agencies shall prioritize projects that will result in the installation of a statue as described in subsection (b) o f this section in a community where a statue depicting a historically significant American was removed or destroyed in conjunction with the events described in section 1 of this order. I keep wondering whose land he's going to steal. Central Park? Some place down South? Steve Thomas
  5. Greg, I hesitated to comment on any of this because I have never studied an Oswald's (any Oswald) trip to Mexico. You know a heck of a lot more about this stuff than I do. Here's what David quoted from page 731 of the Warren Report in his article: https://kennedysandking.com/john-f-kennedy-articles/mexico-city-part-2-the-trip-down-part-1 There seems to be an awful lot of assumptions there/ PS: I liked what David did with the luggage. Just where was the rifle all this time anyway? Steve Thomas
  6. Greg, While I agree with your assumption that an Oswald was driven to Mexico, I'm not so sure about your phrase about this being, "not on a direct line to Houston." New Orleans to Dallas to 505 miles, and according to Google maps takes 7.5 hours. That's an average speed of 67 mph. From information developed by David Joseph in Kennedy's and King David Joseph reviews in detail the evidence for Oswald's alleged trip to Mexico City – Part 2. https://kennedysandking.com/john-f-kennedy-articles/mexico-city-part-2-the-trip-down-part-1 “In Warren Commission Document 442 we find a telegram from Mexico City to Sec of State Rusk (dated November 23, 1963) stating the records show on October 3, 1963 a Lee HENRY Oswald left Mexico by Automobile. WCD 442 p.9 “ Lee Henry arrived in Nuevo Laredo on September 26, 1963, but they didn’t know if he arrived by car. A bus ticket was purchased in Houston, but I don't know if was purchased by an Oswald. As David put it, "There is no record of his travel from New Orleans to Houston. No record of a ticket from any mode of transportation; the FBI checked. There is a record of a bus ticket being purchased in Houston by 2am which should have covered Oswald's travel from there to Mexico City (FBI report of SA Edwin Dalrymple, 2/20/64).", but I don't know if there is any record that shows it was Oswald who bought that ticket. How do we know he went through Houston at all? Steve Thomas
  7. Anthony, I'm sorry, I dropped a letter. It should be TPELIDE. It's on page four of the first link you provided about Lee Henry Oswald: https://www.maryferrell.org/showDoc.html?docId=29805&search=FBI_"Bustos"#relPageId=4&tab=page If you look up TPELIDE in the CIA Cryponyms, you can see a lot of confusion across the various documents. "At least through 4/64, used by the Mexico City station as a generic term for "embassy" and also used for a CIA team conducting surveillance. Caused confusion within CIA ranks. [status: Probable] https://www.maryferrell.org/php/cryptdb.php?id=TPELIDE Steve Thomas
  8. Rob, Just in case you're interested, you can read a summary of this incident in 19H p. 683 here: https://www.maryferrell.org/showDoc.html?docId=1136#relPageId=701&tab=page Oswald remembered inviting the Sergeant outside, "but didn't remember calling him yellow, or anything like that." Like some Private is going to call his Marine Sergeant yellow. That's like a death wish or something. :-) Steve Thomas
  9. Richard, I'm sorry that life has thrown you a curve ball, and admire your determination to overcome it. Steve Thomas
  10. I've decided that I'm going to vote for Donald Trump for President. According to his Press Secretary, President Trump can read, and at his last campaign rally he demonstrated how he can drink a glass of water with one hand. He's got my vote. Steve Thomas
  11. Ron, Oh. Okay. I thought maybe Bentley said somewhere that Oswald had been given a test. Steve Thomas
  12. The Associated Press has reported that at least one of Trump’s daily intelligence briefings included evidence of Russian bounties. Trump has insisted that he was never briefed on such details because they weren’t credible. https://www.thedailybeast.com/us-officials-found-russian-bank-transfer-data-supporting-bounty-accusation-nyt-reports?ref=home Data that shows bank transfers from a Russian military intelligence agency to the Taliban was part of the intercepted information used by U.S. intelligence officials to draw the conclusion that Russians were paying bounties for killing U.S. troops in Afghanistan, according to a New York Times report. The bank transfer data, along with information learned from detainee interrogations, pointed intelligence officials to the determination. Officials were also able to identify several Afghans involved in the alleged Russian operation, including one who is believed to have served as an intermediary in fund distribution. Afghan officials said that several businessmen who have been involved in money transfers with Russia have been arrested over the past several months, and half a million dollars was found in one of their homes.
