  1. Couple of things here. From my readings, at this family Thanksgiving gathering (at Robert Oswald's house), the first since LHO returned from the USSR in June of '62, Marguerite Oswald was a no-show( unless that's her in home film, but I don't think so) Maybe there's a simple explanation, like she had the flu, or didn't get along with some of her in-laws etc., but she lived fairly close by....not across the country...just saying. The other thing that crossed my mind looking at this clip, is how wholesome, "guy next door" LHO looks. Now project this personality forward 10 months to August of 1963 when LHO is in NOLA and Dean Andrews say this same LHO shows up in his law office with a group of "gay mexicanos" looking for legal help to reverse his "undesirable discharge"( the type of discharge gays in the military received in the 1950's and 60's). So who is this LHO person; the family man spending the uniquely American holiday of Thanksgiving with his family or the swinging LHO hanging out with his "gay mexicanos" friends in NOLA. Remember, intelligence operative LHO was doing his fake defector routine in Russia when his undesirable discharge was handed down. I mean what's that all about, LHO is a government/military operative on a mission in the USSR and he gets a lousy, less than honorable discharge from his employers (this same government/military). Not exactly how you build "esprit de corps" in your fake defector program......just saying
  2. Help David Talbot's Stroke Recovery

    David, As a fellow alum of UCSC, ('70)..."go slugs" and a big admirer of your writings on the JFK case, hope your recovery speeds along and that you're feeling almost normal in the very near future. Dan Doyle ps. remember listening to Mae Brussel on KLRB in the 1970's?
  3. Robert Edward Lee Oswald Dies

    The way to crack this case is by DNA sampling. What I can't understand is why there isn't a stronger push for this. The John Armstrong " Harvey and Lee" thesis can put to bed one way or the other by comparing the genetic markers of Robert Oswald( or a blood relative of his) and the person killed by Jack Ruby on 11/24/63( or blood relatives; i.e., Marina's daughters). If the science is available recover the DNA of ancient Neanderthals and build the Neanderthal genome ( Svante Paabo), it should be a no brainer to resolve Armstrong's Harvey and Lee postulation by way of DNA. And this technological advance in genetics(DNA) is something that a Cover-Up couldn't have accounted for 54 years ago if in fact there were 2 ( or more?) persons using the identity of a certain "Lee Harvey Oswald".
  4. The very moment the world was change forever!

    Joe, Before the parade, Kennedy and Johnson had a big argument about who was going to ride in the limo with the President. Johnson wanted liberal Senator Ralph Yarborough and JFK wanted Governor Connally. Apparently their argument was so loud that it could be overheard in the next room. And as they say, the rest is history. What I find interesting in the Croft photo, besides the decent resolution, is that most of the JFK well-wishers on the sidewalk are African American....and what does that say about JFK and the Civil Rights Movement at the time??
  5. Citizen Lane--Documentary on Mark Lane

    Thanks the heads up on the Citizen Lane movie, Jim. Watched it in its entirety yesterday. I've read most, if not all of Mark Lane's books on the the JFK assassination and knew about his work with James Earl Ray and the MLK assassination but what was new to me was the fact that Lane, with Charles Geary and Congressman Leo Ryan, was in Jonestown in 1978 during the mass suicide/murder there. And what really struck me in this movie, was Mark Lane's revelation that Jim Jones was planning a mass defection of his Jonestown congregation to the USSR and then Lane suggests something more sinister was behind the mass suicide ("murder" in Lane's words).....like it was to deprive the USSR of a potential propaganda coup if 900 or more American citizens in mass rejected the USA in favor of the USSR. Remember this was in 1978 and the Cold War was very real.
  6. New book on Nixon and the Mob

    Great thread. I think Nixon's organized crime ties have been overlooked by the MSM & their historians for far too long, which makes me wonder why so? If you're in the CT camp, the names of Nixon's organized crime ties reads like a who's who in the JFK case. According to below linked article, Carlos Marcello gave Nixon $500k in cash in September 1960 before the November election. Oswald' uncle Murret worked for Marcello (as a booky) as did Ferrie, Bannister and (supposedly) Ruby. Then there's Nixon's best buddy, Bebe Rebozo, a American-born Cuban with extensive ties to organized crime. And let's not forget that in 1959 Nixon was Eisenhower's point man for Operation Zapata(BOP). JFK's securing of the Presidency in 1960, was a big set back to this Operation. I can't imagine Nixon withholding air support, as JFK did, when the BOP invasion foundered. From this article I ran across, www.crimemagazine.com/mobs-president-richard-nixons-secret-ties-mafia, which is a great read: " In February 1955, Vice President Richard Nixon traveled to Havana to embrace Batista at the despot's lavish private palace, praise ''the competence and stability'' of his regime, award him a medal of honor, and compare him with Abraham Lincoln.' The Watergate Scandal seems to come into better focus when Nixon's mafia ties are factored in. My guess is that Nixon knew what went down on 11/22/63 by way of his Operation Zapata( Hunt, Sturgis,etc)- Organized Crime( Marcello, Hoffa, etc) connections and was using this knowledge to blackmail someone( the CIA, the Military?) and that someone gave the Watergate break-in legs, which it wouldn't have normally had. Didn't Nixon call it "a third rate burglary"?; right, a third rate burglary which cost him the Presidency. What about the parallels between Nixon and Trump, and both with extensive organized crime ties....scary stuff!
  7. Trump: JFK files to be released

    He's neutralizing the CIA. He knows if the documents being released damage the CIA it benefits him. They, and they specialize in regime change, can't take him out so easily
  8. Trump: JFK files to be released

    Casually watching Chris Mathews on MSNBC last night while I was making dinner, and had to do a double take on what he was saying about the JFK assassination....he's now actually open to alternatives to the official WC LN version. I've seen him talk about this before and he is usually solidly in the MSM echo chamber with the official "Oswald did it" version. So I'm wondering what could have changed his mind? http://www.msnbc.com/hardball
  9. Eugene Dinkin: The Saga of an Unsung Hero

    Is this science, "psychological sets", or wu-wu? I think the jury is out
  10. LBJ -- the movie trailer

    Bit of a late comer to this thread, but having just watched a Morning Joe interview with Rob Reiner and Woody Harrelson about their new movie LBJ, I was struck by the irony that Woody Harrelson is in a movie that in part replays the JFK assassination. Woody is one the sons of convicted killer Charles Harrelson. Jim Marrs fingered Charles Harrelson as one of tramps caught near Dealey Plaza on 11/22/63 . Charles Harrleson claimed, in 1980, when he was being arrested for assassinating a federal judge( the first time a federal judge had been killed in the 20th century), to have been one of the 3 shooters in Dealey Plaza on 11/22/63 . And to add to the irony here, Charles Harrelson, who was married numerous times, had a wife at one point with the maiden name of Diane Lou Oswald. Go figure that one? ......nu nu nu nu. I'm no big fan of LBJ. Although he did enact major domestic legislation, probably way more than JFK could have achieved, but his disastrous Vietnam policy is his rightful legacy. He mislead the American public over and over about the real nature of the Vietnam conflict, only to be exposed by the Tet Offensive of 1968....and later by the Pentagon Papers. As for suspicions of LBJ's involvement in JFK's killing, there's a lot of smoke there. If JFK hadn't met his maker in Dallas, LBJ would have surely been disgraced by the Bobby Baker/Billy Sol Estes scandal and off the ticket in '64. And I've read that RFK was orchestrating the whole thing. In fact, Life magazine had the LBJ Scandal scheduled to run as its headline issue in the first week in December 1963. JFK's demise upstaged all of that and the scandal never really got legs after 11/22/63 And let's not forget, LBJ and Hoover were neighbors in DC and long time good friends. Hmmm? Roger Stone, yes that Roger Stone, wrote a recent book fingering LBJ as the mastermind of 11/22/63. Do I think LBJ was behind 11/22/63...not really....but he sure had the cui bono.....like his political career.
  11. Bill Davy at VMI

    Jim, Not to belabor the point, but your response is first time I've ever "heard" of the institutionalization of Oswald angle. Don't you think this would create timeline headache for the plotters( like when would this have happened?) when all they really needed was a professional diagnosis of Oswald as a whacko. And let's not forget Oswald's "suicide" attempt while in Russia; that has to count for something. I'm just as much as a Garrisonite as the next CTer, but I think that he misses the mark in the Clinton affair(no pun intended).

    Jim, I guess one could say that the reason Oswald ended up in a Clinton was a collateral happenstance of his seeking employment in Jackson; that his "handlers" main purpose was to get LHO's personal info into the East Louisiana State Mental Hospital's personel files so it could be switched at a later date into the patient files by witting or unwitting "assets" of the conspirators at the hospital.....but I think that's a little bit of a stretch. I mean if "they" wanted to color Oswald as a whacko mental patient why go to all of trouble to drive 120 miles to Jackson/ Clinton area and publicly expose themselves as associates of the future "patsy" when "they" could have directed Oswald to a "asset" shrink in NOLA, with little or no public exposure; and then had the "asset" shrink do the coloring at a later date. The effect would have been the same. And Ferrie and Shaw would have not created such a blatant public association with Oswald. What are "agents" Ferrie and Shaw , a bunch of complete bunglers in Clinton who then plan/participate in the perfect hit in Dallas. No I don't think so. This whole Clinton affair flies in the face of a basic intelligence principle of limiting the exposure of the operation.
  14. Bill Davy at VMI

    Jim, In the transcript of Bill Davy's presentation, the 14th paragraph begins with.... " "The committee found that the Clinton witnesses ... " This may require a little explanation. What they're talking about here is the town of Clinton, Louisiana, which is just outside of Baton Rouge. It was uncovered during the Garrison Investigation and the subsequent Shaw trial that Lee Harvey Oswald was seen in Clinton, Louisiana at a voter registration incident with not only David Ferrie but Clay Shaw as well." And he goes on about Clinton for a few more paragraphs. The point Davy is making is about the evidenced association of Oswald, Ferrie, and Shaw before 11/22/63 by way of the Clinton witnesses. This was omitted in the WR, but confirmed by HSCA. My point is about his omission( and others) to give purpose to the Clinton episode beyond that of evidencing the association of Oswald, Ferrie and Shaw; i.e., how does the Clinton episode fit into the larger plot of the conspirators or is it just some anomalous event.
