    Bush not in Dallas- He is dead

    Hey, how about Daniels as VP Bush teaming up with Jim Carrey as Ronald Reagan in a new version of Dumb and Dumber? There could be a scene where Reagan is meeting with his men to plot Iran/Contra. While Reagan tries to stay awake, Bush gets up to go to the bathroom, so he can claim he was "out of the loop." Bush goes and sits on a toilet and communicates with the others at the meeting by radio. Of course those at the meeting have to listen to flushing and other sounds while they're communicating with Bush. There could be another scene where Reagan and Bush meet with the generals to plan the great invasion of Grenada. Bush says, "If I'm ever president, what I want to do is invade Panama."

    Poppy as a drug smuggler makes perfect sense. I wondered where that nickname came from.

    Bush not in Dallas- He is dead

    I tuned in to the Colbert show tonight, and saw the actor who would be perfect to play Poppy in a movie. Jeff Daniels actually looks like him (much moreso than that guy in Dealey Plaza). Unfortunately any movie about Poppy would be a total bore, since he denied everything that would make such a movie interesting.

    Hinckley could have possibly been a good screenwriter too, writing scripts like THE LITTLE GUN SHOP ON ELM STREET.

    Bush not in Dallas- He is dead

    It was just mentioned on FoxNews that Bush was a prolific writer of letters but never wrote a formal memoir. I wonder why. I guess there are some things you just don't write about. Reminds me of E. Howard Hunt's memoir Undercover that completely skips 1963. After all, nothing memorable happened that year.

    I Was A Teenage Warren Commission Report Dupe

    I was a WC dupe for years. I trusted the government, which is stupid to start with. I remember when Rush to Judgment came out. I didn't bother reading it because Time Magazine gave it a bad review. That was good enough for me. I think it was my brother who introduced me to Crossfire, and I came across Best Evidence in the library where I worked. Reading is a wonderful thing.

    Which one? (One real and one attempted.)

    A simple question to James DiEugenio

    The simple fact that there are documents that the government still refuses to release in spite of the law says a lot more than all the documents that have been released.

    Bush not in Dallas- He is dead

    Does anyone believe the story of Ronald Reagan and the magic bullet (oh no, not another one!) fired by John Hinckley, who bought his gun on Elm Street in Dallas? (Boy, somebody had a sense of humor, didn't they?) What did Reagan ever do to anyone to get shot by conspirators soon after taking office? That is, what did he do besides choose as VP a former head of that criminal organization the CIA? Who would naturally, immediately benefit from Reagan’s death but this official criminal, whose family was friends with (wait for it) the Hinckleys? The CIA would have had its man in the Oval Office right then if Reagan hadn’t been too dumb to die. But this great man Bush couldn’t leave well enough alone. (Whether or not he was involved in the JFK hit too. He said he, unlike everyone else on the planet, couldn’t remember where he was on 11/22/63, he thought "somewhere in Texas," though he must have known where he was that day when he made a long-distance phone call to name a possible suspect in the murder - I wonder if that was to establish the fact that he wasn't in Dallas - and must have known where he was when he then got on a plane and in fact flew to Dallas. And he must have known where he was when he got briefed, on behalf of the CIA for some strange reason, by the FBI on the aftermath of the JFK hit). No, he had to give us George W. Bush, who gave us Cheney and Rumsfeld and their New Pearl Harbor, who gave us the Iraq War and thousands and thousands of deaths, Iraqi and American, and a Middle East power vacuum to be filled by Iran and ISIS. And for what? Why, for good old Corporate America, what else? Last night I was all ready to hear Dolly Parton sing on Jimmy Fallon’s show (which ordinarily you couldn’t pay me to watch). But no, I had to get hit with a long-prepared NBC Special Report on the death of this great man. Some other time, Dolly.

    Executive Action

    Movie on Turner Classic Movies tonight at 8 pm EST.
  11. Might this statement by a high Turkish official on the Khashoggi murder not apply as well to the JFK assassination? “It is not possible for an intelligence agency such as the CIA, which even knows the colour of the fur on the cat walking around the Saudi consulate’s garden … to not know who gave this order.” Turkey attacks Trump's stance I have indeed wondered more than once how the U.S. intelligence community could not know, at least somewhere along the line, who planned, financed, and carried out the JFK hit, when also considering the CIA’s role in covering up relevant information 55 years later and counting. “It is not possible” doesn’t seem like exaggeration or conjecture to me. It seems more like just the way it is.
  12. Thanks. I hadn't heard of that case. The CIA could have just killed the guy with a drone, but that could also kill a few Milan passersby. The CIA would only do that in Arab or Muslim countries, where innocent lives ("collateral damage") are worth less than in Europe.
  13. Paz, Who did they kidnap, and what happened to the magistrate?
  14. Well it sounds kind of rude to answer the phone with "Pronto," like telling the caller to hurry up and say what he or she wants. And what's with "prego," like telling someone to go get pregnant?
  15. Francois thinks the idea that the Secret Service may have been somehow involved in the JFK assassination is not only ridiculous but libelous. This is odd, since one of his professed areas of interest is history. (Another is crime investigations.) Despite this interest he has apparently never heard of bodyguards being involved in the assassination of the person they were guarding. Perhaps he should read up on the assassination of Indira Gandhi. Or of Salaam Taseer. I'm sure there are others, but Francois, as one interested in history and crime, ought to know more about them than I do.
