    David Talbot on Robert F. Kennedy's war on crime

    Along the lines of "Active Measures" . Here are some of comedian Jim Carrey's paintings on Twitter. WARNING: Content may be political. You may have to copy and paste it. Jim Carrey (@JimCarrey) | Twitter
  2. Hi Paul, I was hoping to get up there to the Talbot interview with RFK Jr. and meeting you as well. Unfortunately it was the one weekday I couldn't make it. I'll be  curious to hear what you think of it. Again thanks for informing me and let me know of any other such events in the future.

      Kirk - I completely neglected to post that David Talbot posted on FB this morning that due to the death of Christopher Lawford the interview was cancelled. Talbot hopes to do it at another time. I’m going to post a thread now. It would be a pleasure to meet you sometime.

      Maybe we can benefit from unfortunate events and I'll be able to make it next time.

    Skull and Bones and the Assassination of JFK

    Yeah, he still sounds characteristically out of touch.

    Thanks for the info, Paul. Sounds like something I should attend. See if I can swing it.
  5. Trumps lawyers enacted a mock Mueller interview with Trump, then what did they do? According to Jake Tappers tweet: "John Dowd and Jay Sekulow went to Mueller's office and re-enacted the mock interview. Their goal: to argue that Trump couldn't possibly testify because he was incapable of telling the truth. "He just made something up. That's his nature," Dowd said to Mueller.

    Welcome Jennifer, James Richards last post here was Jan. 2016. Other people here might have some insight into his whereabouts. If he's still around and checks in occasionally, you might click on his picture and write him a private message.

    Questions About Charles V. Harrelson

    Actually, after his segment on MWKK, Harrelson at one point admitted to killing JFK. Here's a video clip of him walking back that admission. You'd have to suspect almost everything he'd say.

    Democracy In Chains

    I'm with your sentiments on this, Jim. Unfortunately the Clinton boom was largely because of the dot.com boom that went bust as he left office. But still, the reason the Democrats can't make hay about about how Bush screwed up the deficit process is because the opposition will always be able to say that it was Obama that doubled the debt, but that was because he was left a debt problem problem by Bush that was only going to get worse unless the government took some action. That and the right wing demagogues will always be able to get points shaming Obama for "bailing out the banks." To the average voter this stuff is just too mind boggling to make any judgment about, and so they retreat into a position that they don't want to hear either of the parties playing the "blame game", and even though it's the truth, it can't be exploited by the Democrats, which unfortunately is pretty pathetic.

    Democracy In Chains

    Re Virginia schools: Wow! I didn't know that Ron. Ron says: Koch network write that it "operates on the scale of a national U.S. political party." and employs more than three times as many people as the Republican committees had on their payrolls in 2015 That's pretty stunning.That's the point I was trying to make with Jim.

    Democracy In Chains

    Whew! that was quite a whirlwind of facts there Jim. Some relevant to the question,some not. The question wasn't: What was the most disastrous presidency of our time? That question sounds like most of us here might be in agreement. The real catastrophe of the current debt has a small part with to do with Bush tax cuts, a big part with the Iraq War but the bulk of it was the lax regulation of the financial industry that was allowed to balloon and get out of control causing a great recession necessitating great government counter spending measures. Niederhut's observation had to do with political ideology, you seemed to be confusing profligate spending (Bush) with being further to the "Right". I'm not sure where you got that notion but that's just completely ass backwards. Since the Koch's are on the rise, I'm telling you what would happen with discretionary spending under the Koch blueprint would be much more draconian than under big spender Bush. Period. -There's more to this than Left-Good!- Right Bad! Since you are a voluminous writer and the topic is "The Betrayal of Democracy," one thing I've found noticeably absent in your writing, other than loving Trump's affection for Putin: (which I know was a no brainer for you) Are you at all experiencing the present, that is the Trump Presidency in any thoughtful way, like the rest of us?, or are you just waiting to tabulate the aggregate collective response to the Mueller probe?

    Jim says: Please do not talk about W being to the left of the Koch brothers. I mean that whole BS about compassionate conservatism was a Rovian ruse. W took a meat axe to the economy and the budget.  Actually Jim, W. Neiderhut who I assume has more of a poly/sci background than you is right. The Koch's are way farther to the right than GW. Your counter to his assertion to that fact is based on pedestrian media campaign rhetoric, and no one would argue with that. But if you want to see a meat axe taken to the budget, you just let the Koch's prevail and you'll be screaming for GW to return! And they make no bones about it, compared to the Koch's, and to a lesser extent Trump, GW was a big spender. You're already experiencing a meat axe to the budget outside of increased military spending with Trump, but you don't seem too concerned about that, which is cool---------------- I suppose?

    Was Dubya in Dealey Plaza on 11/22/63?

    But this isn't about that memo. From what I can see this is about then CIA Director Bush denying a Hoover memo that Castro was approached beforehand by Oswald stating he planned to kill the President that Castro didn't take seriously, that the Senate Intelligence Committee contradicts and says did exist.

    Surprised there is no discussion on this

    I don't think so W. But more recently Jones was charging Mueller with being part of a child sex ring, just as they had previously said about the Clinton's in Pizzagate. That is part of the garbage that has fueled this "Q"movement. There is now a serious lack of critical thinking compared to when we were younger. There are things to be mindful of. But these are private entities. Facebook has taken to policing itself because they don't want the government (or the Deep State, if you prefer)to swoop in and regulate them as a utility. To those who think that would be an incursion by the "Deep State", do you realize Jones would have more recourse than he presently has if Facebook was a publicly regulated utility?

    Was Dubya in Dealey Plaza on 11/22/63?

    I'd agree Joe, that it's hard to establish 100% certainty with photos like these, but I do think 98 and 99. The pattern of evidence against Bush is so spotted ( you notice I didn't say spotty) over a wide range of connections, people, and incidents. They're somewhat well contained, but pretty oily spots.

    Was Dubya in Dealey Plaza on 11/22/63?

    When I first saw the distant image in the photo of the alleged Bush at Dealey Plaza, I thought there was a good likeness to what I had imagined Bush would look like as a 39 year old man. Later on I read a piece I suppose from a "body language expert" (which has since ballooned into a full time lucrative occupation!) noting the similarities in the way both men stood with their hands in their pocket in a sort of cocked position. Man, I was pretty impressed at the time! Now look at these comparative photos. 1. GHWB has a prominent chin.This man has no chin. Bush nose more pointed. Brow line of man swooping down, Bush's arching up. 2. Bush was 39 at this time, this man looks to be in his late 20's early 30's. Bush would dress in more expensive suits. I scoured over a lot of Bush photos over his life. I didn't see one photo of Bush in a checkered jacket. This man appears to be somewhat anguished. 3.In Bush's picture here, he's actually shaking hands with President Eisenhower, I would estimate around 1958, look at what happened to Bush's hairline in the next 5 years. But even stronger evidence is in this earlier photo. GW was born in 1946, would you estimate he is what? 8, in this picture? That would be 1954?-, look at Daddy's hairline. In the next 8-9 years how did he reshape and turn around the receding hairline? ************ When looking for an old photo of GW cheer leading I came upon another celebrity cheerleader photo that I was impressed with and posted and hinted her initials. James PM'd me and told me he pulled the cheerleader photo I posted. He seemed to think that I dredged up an old photo of another forum member. I told him I would never do that. Anyway, the athletic cheerleader photo was of MSM, Katie Couric.
