  1. What I find thought provoking about the gay angle in the JFK case is that Gen Edwin Walker was also gay. So what are the chances that he didn't know the others and interact with them ( Clay, Ferrie, Ruby and Oswald)??.... given the closeted times in Dallas and NOLA in the early '60s. And what about Oswald's Undesirable Discharge, which was the kind discharge gays got in the military in the 50's, 60's, etc when they were outed. Maybe Oswald tipped his hand while he was in Russia, resulting in his tainted discharge, because it makes no sense to me that the Marines would do this for their stated reason( Oswald missed his Marine Reserve meetings). Oswald was in Russia working for an ONI fake defector intelligence program. And maybe Oswald's rush to marry (Ellen German then Marina) was his way of making amends with his Intel and military superiors. From Wiki: (Edwin) Walker, then 66, was arrested on June 23, 1976, for public lewdness in a restroom at a Dallas park. He was accused of fondling and propositioning a male undercover police officer.[44][45][46] He was arrested again in Dallas for public lewdness on March 16, 1977.[47][48] He pleaded no contest to one of the two misdemeanor charges, was given a suspended and a 30-day jail sentence and fined $1,000
  2. Is John Mc Cain losing it?

    Crazy like a befuddled fox. I think he's losing it. In his exchange with Comey, McCain was completely befuddled (looked like dementia to me) by what Comey was saying about the two investigations; namely, the Hilary Email Server investigation was completed on July 5th, 2016 and the current Russian Meddling/Trump Cover-up investigation is ongoing; not completed. I was watching live and was astounded by McCain lack of wits.....and this guy is a sitting Senator. I was surprised that no one on the Committee came to his rescue. They just let him twist in wind
  3. Angleton's comment "Wilderness of mirrors" seems apt

  5. A Snapshot with Che

    thanks for posting . Great addition to this unique piece of history. expands and differs from John Lee Anderson's book on Che in a major way.
  6. Marina, the Commission, and Mexico City

    If there's one person still alive who could really move the JFK assassination forward it is Marina Oswald Porter. She is still very much alive, in mid 70's and easily located. ( btw Ruth Paine is still alive, living in Santa Rosa, Ca. last I heard, but getting up there in years and not cooperative). I continue to wonder why in a thread like this, contributors continue to parse Marina's 50+ year old testimony when she is still physically able to comment/testify. It would seem that some intrepid JFK investigator/researcher could find a way to get her to talk (or maybe she would voluntarily?); worst case scenario..... initiate a lawsuit( a la Jim Garrison) and subpoena her. Whatever the case, Marina is still around and knows way more about LHO than any of us. The eyeopener for me about Tex-Italia Films giving Marina a $132,000 contract in Feb 1964 is that this is precisely when( the same month) Marina is testifying before the WC for the first time......and after 6 weeks in "protective(read coaching) custody" ......quite a coincidence I would say.....no to mention the fact that Tex-Italia then disappears, better yet, vanishes into the untraceable ether. And none of the esteemed Warren Commissioners, nor any other official, seems to raise an eyebrow about such happenings. then there's the connection to Collins Radio by way of the Tippit murder which is where Marina's current husband, Kenneth Porter, was employed at the time of the assassination. And what about John Armstrong's hypothesis on the existence of a Harvey and a Lee. This could be tested by a DNA sample from Robert Oswald matched against a sample from June or Rachel, Marina's daughters with LHO. for what it's worth, my $.02
  7. Hillary blames FBI Director Comey for her loss

    Update 2/10/17 Wikipedia has just banned The Daily News because of too many fake news articles. Recall that this same "news" paper was the source, i.e., they broke the news, of the Anthony Weiner sexting scandal which led to FBI's Comey writing a letter to Congress that he was re-opening the Hillary email investigation..... 2 weeks before the election. Down the rabbit hole once again.
  8. Fidel Castro

    Jim, Don't be naive here. The vast majority of the "liquidated" were the brutal henchmen of Bastista's. They tortured. raped, and killed many as Batista's state security force. It was state terrorism. These guys were sub-human. Castro did what the French did with the Nazi collaborators after The Liberation of France in 1944. Revolutions are not white glove affairs. Eggs get broken. Reprisals take place. Can you imagine the blood bath if a Cuban counter-revolution had been successful...... Look at what the CIA did to Salvador Allende and he was democratically elected. Shoot, the Cuban Revolution was a sanitary affair compared to what happened in Algeria. As for Cuba's alliance with the Soviets, Castro though it necessary to deter another US invasion attempt. The US set the precedent with first strike missiles in Turkey. The Soviets were pissed. Nikita was playing catch up. It's the time of MAD, mutual assured destruction. Castro was just a pawn in a much larger game. Remember, Castro felt burnt by Nikita because he was left out of the loop during the negotiations that resolved the Crisis. The bigger puzzle is how a rag-tag band of 300 irregulars defeated the much, much larger Batista force. Talk about asymmetrical warfare. This was off the chart. This was the Latin American Thermopylae.
  9. JFK in Memoriam on 11/22

    Appreciate your work, Jim. Thanks
  10. Hillary blames FBI Director Comey for her loss

    Jim, Thanks for the thanks. I'm seeing lots of parallels between the "Castro did it" disinformation campaign right after 11/22/63 and this Fake News phenomena on FB........which begs the question of a professional (Russian?) Intelligence operation/operator(s). "But now fake news from Macedonia? Geez. " couldn't agree more.
  11. Hillary blames FBI Director Comey for her loss

    Jim: I don't get the above ......I have reached out to a professional Pol that I know about this Bradley Effect stuff so let's see what he says....but any event let's move on. One thing that is currently peaking my interest in reading the post-mortems about the election, is the previously unacknowledged ubiquity of "Fake News" sites on social media and how they could have influenced the election......which may do more to explain the election results than anything else......the Wiener/ HRC's email/Comey Episode is starting to look a lot like a page right out of a DAP/CIA disinformation playbook...........with Huma Adbedin as HRC's Trojan Horse just like, to get back on topic, LBJ (or ?) may have been JFK's Trojan Horse. analysis of the role of fake news/disinformation in this election: http://nymag.com/selectall/2016/11/donald-trump-won-because-of-facebook.html
  12. Hillary blames FBI Director Comey for her loss

    Jim, I'm a 2nd generation native Californian who grew up in LA( La Canada Flintridge) who now lives on the East Coast. I had high profile Black clients in California back in 2008 and they were so sure that Obama wasn't going to win no matter what the polls indicated because of latent racism and the Bradley Effect. Obama won. So much for the validity of Bradley Effect. David Axelrod said in an interview a few days ago, that HRC lost because , in so many words, she isn't a gifted politician and didn't connect with voters. I agree. More to the point, HRC didn't democratically win the primary. The fix was in; she had 500 Superdelegates before the primary season even began. So now this country is paying the price for the Clintons' sense of entitlement(again!) If I never hear of the Clintons again, it will be too soon. Of more interest to me presently is Douglas Caddy's post today concerning the FBI knowing about Weiner's laptop and the HRC emails on it back in April. Has this been documented by him(or anyone else for that matter)? I can't find anything on it.
  13. Hillary blames FBI Director Comey for her loss

    Jim, I have to say something when the The Bradley Effect is invoked. The Bradley Effect is just a theory without a proof, empirical or otherwise. How do you read someone's thoughts? It's conjecture much like your criticism of PSD...not that I'm a defender of his. Political scientists and professional pollsters came up with this theory to cover their asses and avoid taking the heat for their bad polling methodology. Speaking of which, from what I've read, the real problem in the polling for this election was that pollsters were limited to using landlines and online sampling, which skews the sample. Most folks who have landlines also have caller ID( also true for cell phones) and may avoid the sampling call because they don't recognize the number(telemarketing!). Online polling is also problematic because the potential sample-ee may not be interested in taking the time to fill out the questionaire. Bad or outdated polling methodology is the culprit here not some wu-wu theory like the Bradley Effect.
  14. Hillary blames FBI Director Comey for her loss

    Jim, Don't get me wrong here, I totally respect your work. Destiny Betrayed(2nd ed) is one of my all time favorite reads on the JFK case. I was somewhat disappointed with Reclaiming Parkland because, in my mind, Bugliosi's volume doesn't deserve the attention that someone like you gave it. I am not a professional researcher or academic and could never write a book. Hanging out all day in the archives( virtual or not) is not my cup of tea. I think of myself more of an amateur analyst who tries to see patterns in the data not discover and document the primary data. As a retired design professional, all this stuff is interesting food for thought for me; a hobby if you will. As for the legitimacy of my original post in this tread, just because I have no "pedigree" as a researcher, that in itself does not necessarily invalidate my supposition. I was actually hoping that someone within this community with serious research skills might have their interest peaked enough to run it to ground......... especially before the Electoral College votes because some much is at stake.
  15. Hillary blames FBI Director Comey for her loss

    Jim, So let me understand the logic your position, you write books with the thesis that the JFK assassination was a conspiracy involving the highest level of the government that has been covered up for the last 50+ years but somehow a national election is beyond being subverted by a dirty trick(s). Are you familiar with the elections of 1968 and 1980? In 1968, then Republican candidate Richard Nixon secretly( via Kissinger) sent the North Vietnamese delegation, who were actively involved in peace negotiations in Paris at the time, a message that if they waited until after the U.S. election that he would give them a better deal. Remember Nixon's campaign promise in that election that he had a "secret plan to end the war"? If the North Vietnamese would have made peace before the election, Nixon most likely would have lost the election. In the election season of 1980, Jimmy Carter was on the verge of getting the American hostages released from Iran before the coming election. Somehow the Iranians decided not to release hostages and Reagan got elected and, weirdly enough, the Iranians released the hostages on the day of Reagan's inauguration. Quite a coincidence wouldn't you say ? This episode was originally dismissed as a "October Surprise Theory" until the Iran-Contra scandal broke in Reagan's second term and then it seemed a lot less like a conspiracy theory and lot more like a reality. This what Ted Cruz said about Roger Stone in the primaries, "He is pulling the strings on Donald Trump. He planned the Trump campaign, and he is Trump's henchman and dirty trickster." Trump hired Stone for Stone's field of expertise, dirty tricks. To think that Comey's letter to congress on 10/28, 11 days before the election, has no stench of a dirty trick operation is rather naive much like the LNers position in the JFK assassination. Hopefully, the truth will surface but I wouldn't hold my breath because after 50+ years of looking for the smoking gun in the JFK case, there isn't one and all we are left with is only inference and supposition. Here is the link that I based my previous post ........about Weiner's latest picadillo . http://www.theatlantic.com/news/archive/2016/09/anthony-weiner-investigation-15-year-old-girl/501416/ more to the point: "The teenage girl and her father spoke with the Daily Mail, and she said she had reached out to Weiner through Twitter in January".
