  1. Did the Dallas Radical Right kill JFK?

    I just got back to Dallas 1963 a few days ago, and am getting close to the end. It's a good snapshot of the ugly environment in Dallas at the time.
  2. Did the Dallas Radical Right kill JFK?

    This is in my view the most important tip received from a member of the general public. This letter from Dr Martin Miller has it all spelled out 5 months after the assassination: Jason, This is very interesting indeed. Thanks for posting it, and for going through all the documents.
  3. Number of shots in Dealy Plaza?

    I like what Fletcher Prouty said in regard to the number of shots in Dealey Plaza: "As many as it took."
  4. The Biggest Lies.... Untangled

    I'd like to throw in Ed Lansdale.
  5. Let's see. Allen Dulles, William Harvey, E. Howard Hunt, Clay Shaw........
  6. Did the Dallas Radical Right kill JFK?

    No, I haven't finished it yet. It is a good snapshot of the climate in Dallas during that time. I temporarily put it aside because I'm going through the masters thesis by Chris Cravens that Paul T. mentioned some pages back, "Edwin A. Walker and the Right Wing in Dallas, 1960-1966. I got it through interlibrary loan via my local library.
  7. Did the Dallas Radical Right kill JFK?

    Paul, You make some very good points. The radical right, most certainly thought JFK was an appeaser and had sold out the US to the "reds". To them, Kennedy was a traitor. They wanted to set the clock back. Granted many others outside of the radical right also thought JFK was an appeaser. Interesting tidbits about Hargis. That gives a good example to the motto: "Do as I say, not as I do."
  8. Did the Dallas Radical Right kill JFK?

    During this 1960s time period, the radical right movement most certainly had a lot in common with protestant fundamentalism, and their common battle against communist atheism. I think the most outward symbols of this are persons like Billy James hargis, Gerald L.K. Smith, Kent & Phoebe Courtney, others. Cerainly less visible person could be John Foster & Allen Dulles, many of the Georgetown set with their wasp background. JFK being Catholic was a huge thing. All these groups/individuals whether east coast protestant or deep south/southwest protestant all had a common thought that liberals, catholics, democrats, etc. were all "communist", and it was like a dominoe theory.
  9. I remember reading somewhere (can't for the life of me remember where) that when the body was exhumed, they noticed the bottom of the concrete vault the casket was in was broken, and something not right about the head. The idea being when "they" went to remove the body, they tried raising the vault with a small crane/lift or something, and the vault being too heavy snapped the line and the concrete broke.
  10. Did the Dallas Radical Right kill JFK?

    I recently acquired a copy of "The Case Of General Edwin A. Walker" by Kent and Phoebe Courtney. On the inside of the front cover, there is a sticker with the name Freedom Club, out of Los Angeles, who probably distributed the copies in that area. I couldn't find any information on this organization, but I imagine there were many such groups around the country.
  11. Did the Dallas Radical Right kill JFK?

    Sounds like something I've heard many times, when an intelligence organization is working with an individual in some capacity, official/unofficial, paid/unpaid, will say, "If you get caught, or something comes up, we'll deny we know you, no matter what."
  12. Virgilio Gonzalez

    What was he specifically told the operation was? What was he told his purpose/objective was? I suppose only Oswald would know that, and whoever told him. He was clearly told some kind of fairy tale.
  13. Virgilio Gonzalez

    What I want to know is, what was Oswald told he was participating in? What did he think he was actually doing at the TSBD? Any ideas on that Doug?
  14. Did the Dallas Radical Right kill JFK?

    Here are pronunciations of various letters in polish. J's are pronounced like y in yes. Pronounced Jan. Nothing unusual here, I think. https://en.wikibooks.org/wiki/Polish/Polish_pronunciation http://www.babynamespedia.com/pronounce/John
