Updating JFK, RFK Assassination Investigations

Daniel Bur­ros

COMMENT: Our long jour­ney in polit­i­cal research began with the inves­ti­ga­tion into the assas­si­na­tion of Pres­i­dent Kennedy. That killing was a coup d’etat, fol­lowed in time with the mur­ders of Mar­tin Luther King and JFK’s brother Robert at the hands of the same inter­ests.

A cou­ple of recent sto­ries touch on aspects of the investigation.

A New York Times obit­u­ary for McClandlish Phillips notes his work expos­ing the Jew­ish back­ground of Daniel Bur­ros, leader of a New York Ku Klux Klan chap­ter and a mem­ber of the Amer­i­can Nazi Party.

The obit­u­ary (pre­dictably) fails to note that Bur­ros’ name, address and tele­phone num­ber were in the sup­posed “leftist/communist” Lee Har­vey Oswald’s address book at the time of his arrest. (So were the name, address and tele­phone num­ber of George Lin­coln Rock­well, the fuhrer of the Amer­i­can Nazi Party, who was shot to death in 1967.)

Bur­ros is alleged to have com­mit­ted sui­cide fol­low­ing the pub­li­ca­tion of Phillips’ story. As we have noted in AFA #13 (among other pro­grams), Bur­ros allegedly killed him­self at the home of Roy Frankhouser, a Penn­syl­va­nia KKK leader and him­self a con­tract agent for the CIA. As Frankhouser noted, com­ment­ing on Bur­ros’ death: “Bad case of sui­cide. Three bullets. . . .”

The con­nec­tions between the Amer­i­can Nazi Party milieu and the 544 Camp Street/531 Lafayette Place milieu that fig­ured in Jim Garrison’s inves­ti­ga­tion are cov­ered in FTR #188. Garrison’s thor­ough vin­di­ca­tion by the House Select Com­mit­tee on Assas­si­na­tions is cov­ered in FTR #190.

Grant Cooper and Sirhan

We’ve cov­ered the reopen­ing of the RFK assas­si­na­tion inves­ti­ga­tion in past posts. Suf­fice it to say that Sirhan was a patsy and an appar­ent mind-control job.

Many inves­ti­ga­tors feel that Robert Kennedy’s actual assas­sin was Amer­i­can Nazi Thane Eugene Cesar.

In a recent post updat­ing the RFK killing, Russ Baker notes that Sirhan’s first attor­ney func­tioned more like a pros­e­cu­tor, rail­road­ing Sirhan into prison. More impor­tantly, attor­ney Grant Cooper was under indict­ment at the time in a case involv­ing Johnny Roselli, one of the Mafia fig­ures involved with the CIA’s anti-Castro efforts and believed by many to have been part of the mob ele­ment involved with the JFK assassination.

“McCan­dlish Phillips, Who Exposed a Jew­ish Klans­man, Is Dead at 85″ by Mar­galit Fox; The New York Times; 4/10/2013.

EXCERPT: McCan­dlish Phillips, a for­mer reporter for The New York Times who wrote one of the most famous arti­cles in the newspaper’s his­tory — expos­ing the Ortho­dox Jew­ish back­ground of a senior Ku Klux Klan offi­cial — before for­sak­ing jour­nal­ism to spread the Gospel, died on Tues­day in Man­hat­tan. He was 85. . . .

. . . Mr. Phillips’s most renowned arti­cle appeared on Page 1 on Sun­day, Oct. 31, 1965, under the head­line “State Klan Leader Hides Secret of Jew­ish Ori­gin.” It was a rig­or­ously reported pro­file of Daniel Bur­ros, a 28-year-old Queens man who was the Grand Dragon of the New York State Ku Klux Klan, a chief orga­nizer of the national Klan and a for­mer national sec­re­tary of the Amer­i­can Nazi Party. . . .

. . . . The arti­cle remains a case study in a reporter’s per­se­ver­ance in the face of intim­i­da­tion. It is also a case study in the severe, unin­tended con­se­quences that the air­ing of fiercely guarded truths can have for the guardian: despite threat­en­ing to kill Mr. Phillips if the arti­cle went to press, Mr. Bur­ros, in the end, killed only himself. . . .

“RFK Assas­si­na­tion Legal Case Update” by Russ Baker; WhoWhat­Why; 4/5/2013.

EXCERPT: . . . . Although Sirhan pled guilty at his orig­i­nal trial in 1969, Pep­per con­tends that Sirhan was betrayed by a lead mem­ber of his orig­i­nal legal team, Grant Cooper, who Pep­per notes was him­self under fed­eral indict­ment at the time for ille­gally pos­sess­ing grand jury pro­ceed­ings in another famous case, involv­ing card cheat­ing at the Bev­erly Hills Friar’s Club. Cooper, who faced pos­si­ble jail time for that, ended up being let off with a $1000 fine.

Intrigu­ingly, his client in the Friar’s affair, John Roselli, was an orga­nized crime fig­ure with CIA ties often named as a pos­si­ble con­spir­a­tor in the death of Pres­i­dent John F. Kennedy.

The defense had Sirhan admit guilt and sought to por­tray him as both men­tally defi­cient and act­ing on impulse. Pep­per notes that the attorney’s per­sonal vul­ner­a­bil­ity was known to the judge and pros­e­cu­tion, and that they nev­er­the­less said noth­ing while Sirhan’s real inter­ests were not rep­re­sented, and excul­pa­tory evi­dence was sup­pressed. Although Sirhan con­fessed to shoot­ing at Robert Kennedy, he later said that he could remem­ber noth­ing at all of that tragic day. . . .

. . . If Sirhan had been rep­re­sented by capa­ble attor­neys deter­mined to learn the truth about the polit­i­cally fraught sec­ond mur­der of a Kennedy brother in five years, things might have turned out dif­fer­ently. Instead, his attor­neys per­suaded Sirhan to plead guilty in hopes of avoid­ing the death penalty; Sirhan put up no resis­tance to this strat­egy since, as he would later reveal, he had zero recall of what hap­pened on the night of the shoot­ing. He was sen­tenced to the death penalty any­way, though sev­eral years later the sen­tence was com­muted to life in prison after Cal­i­for­nia abol­ished the death penalty.

Pep­per, in his recent fil­ing, directs much of his out­rage at attor­ney Grant Cooper:

As a mat­ter of record he accepted, with­out even the most per­func­tory exam­i­na­tion or chal­lenge, all of the State’s bal­lis­tic evi­dence…. As a result, defense Coun­sel Cooper’s indict­ment [for ille­gally pos­sess­ing grand jury pro­ceed­ings in another case] went away. He was rewarded for obtain­ing the guilty plea and death penalty sentence….

Indeed, here’s what Cooper said in his clos­ing remarks:

“Now, let me state at the out­set that I want this to sink in if any­thing sinks in—we are not here to free a guilty man. We tell you as we always have, that he is guilty of hav­ing killed Sen­a­tor Kennedy….we expect that under the evi­dence in this case, whether Mr. Sirhan likes it or not, under the facts of this case, he deserves to spend the rest of his life in the pen­i­ten­tiary….Don’t we know from dozens and dozens of wit­nesses that this defen­dant pulled the trig­ger that killed Sen­a­tor Kennedy?…there is no ques­tion about that.”…“I wouldn’t want Sirhan Sirhan to be turned loose as he is dan­ger­ous, espe­cially when the psy­chi­a­trists tell us that he is going to get worse and he is get­ting worse. There is a good Sirhan and a bad Sirhan and the bad Sirhan is nasty… we as lawyers owe the oblig­a­tion to do what we think is right to the fullest extent of our abil­ity but we also owe an oblig­a­tion to soci­ety. And, I, for one, am not going to ask you to do oth­er­wise than to bring in a ver­dict of guilty in the sec­ond degree.”

It takes a moment to real­ize that this is not the pros­e­cu­tor, but the defense lawyer. No won­der most of us take for granted that Sirhan Sirhan killed Robert Kennedy—and acted alone. . . .

Gaal of course is drawn to anything implicating a Jew. Get back to us with a citation for the claim " that Bur­ros’ name, address and tele­phone num­ber were in the sup­posed “leftist/communist” Lee Har­vey Oswald’s address book at the time of his arrest"

NODULE 11

OSWALD'S address book contained the following entry: "Nat. Sec. Dan Burros Lincoln Rockwell Arlington, Virginia American Nazi Party (Amer. National Party) Hollis Sec. of Queens N.Y.,(newspaper) Nat. Socialist Bulletin."

The Secret Service and the FBI questioned George Lincoln Rockwell and Dan Burros. Both said they had no idea why their names appeared in OSWALD'S address book. George Lincoln Rockwell said: "I believe Kennedy was shot by a right-winger...I think American Nazis are going to have a hard time for a while. I wouldn't be a bit surprised to be picked-up on it." [FBI 105-70374-2731]
