Hi Star Mariner:

I gave my review of Talbot’s book here.  I segued from it to reading a biography of Karl Wolff.  I have already read enough about Nazis to last a lifetime, but Wolff’s career was sickly fascinating, and easy to see why he was one of Dulles’s favorite Nazis (Wolff was one of Hitler’s favorites, too, with his aristocratic looks and comportment), along with Gehlen.  I wrote a series of JFK posts recently, in which I presented my views.  

I made a succinct post on my view of the JFK hit.  I have written plenty on the JFK hit in recent years, in addition to my site’s rendition.  I go plenty into the Magic Bullet and the backyard photos.  IMO, the Magic Bullet, rifle, backyard photos, and the camera that allegedly took them were all planted evidence to frame Oswald to be, in his words, a “patsy.”  Ruby’s job was to silence Oswald, and quickly, before he really spilled the beans.  Ruby was a big-time mobster, not some two-bit hustler.  Framing a patsy became the standard MO in most high-profile American assassinations during the generation after the JFK hit, when the spooks ran amok.  And yes, Dulles kicked it all off.  The mob and CIA often worked together, and a similar alliance nearly killed Charles de Gaulle a year before the JFK hit, and de Gaulle did not miss the similarity.  

Hunt was in the JFK hit up to his eyeballs, and his amazing “alien presence” explanation to Doug Caddy may well reflect Hunt’s view, but don’t expect any revelations in Hunt’s papers, either.  Spies like him are not going to leave much juicy material behind.  The raid of Angleton’s vaults after his death, as he met Dulles in hell (in Angleton’s words), yielded gems such as RFK’s autopsy pictures (probably trophies for Angleton), but I doubt that Hunt left much honest behind, especially in his papers.  

Best,

Wade

Hi Star Mariner:

I have plenty of JFK/Oswald posts on this thread, so a few posts on my thread is fine, and it is a subject of my big essay:)Nice chin pics.  Here is my take on the backyard photos.  I write plenty about them on my site, and I’ll be referring to it.  Just like the rifle and Magic Bullet, the provenance of the backyard photos and the camera that allegedly took them is highly dubious.  

We will begin with the first one: Oswald was asked about the photos before they were officially discovered, and they somehow eluded the search on the day of the assassination.  Two developers working in the FBI’s lab on the night of the assassination said that they saw a color transparency of the backyard photos the day before they were “discovered.”  

On the chin, Oswald himself began the “fake” argument, because he called them fakes when he saw them, and said that he could prove that they were fakes.  He said that his head was pasted onto somebody else’s body.  Of course, the next day, he was silenced forever.  Right at the chin, there is a crop-line that the HSCA explained away as water spots, but spots don’t run in lines.  So, right where you might expect the crop line, if Oswald was right, is a crop line, which was explained away very dubiously.  

Of course, there is plenty of evidence that there were two Oswalds, so I always look at the photos of the man in Dallas PD custody.  You are right that sometimes his chin does not look as pointy, but the backyard photo chin sure looks a lot more like Roscoe White’s than Oswald’s.  Particularly damning of the HSCA’s “analysis” was when the chin data was purposefully omitted from its Penrose study.  How obvious could it be?  

As you know, the chin is one of many anomalies regarding those photos, and I’ll go into some of them here.  Again, the provenance of the evidence is highly damning to the official version.  Not only was Oswald asked about the photos before they were “discovered,” and the FBI apparently had a color version on the day before they were “discovered,” the negative of the most famous backyard photo has never been introduced into evidence, even though the evidence inventory shows one more negative than was ever presented as evidence.  

More than a decade later, Roscoe White’s widow was found to possess a third backyard photo.  A Dallas PD reenactment in 1964 proved that they knew about that photo in 1964, but it was “discovered” in 1976.  There also may have been a fourth one, of Oswald holding the rifle over his head.  The very compliant Marina initially denied taking any photos, but when prodded enough, said whatever the Warren Commission wanted her to.  

Not only that, but a year after the JFK hit, George de Mohrenschildt discovered a version of the most famous one (133-A) that was clearer than the “original” and showed area outside the frame of the original.  The pictures are taken in sunlight, but the weather of the day in question was cloudy and rainy.  Oswald never had clothing like the man in the photos did.  It goes on and on.  

The camera was like the photos, in that it was not found in previous searches, to miraculously appear in that garage, actually discovered by Oswald’s brother.  It did not even work when it was “discovered.”  I have seen the many chain-of-custody issues with the photos explained away by Dallas PD malfeasance or cavalier treatment of the evidence.  So much evidence disappeared or miraculously appeared that it is very difficult to believe the evidence at all.  

There are many other anomalies with the backyard photos.  I have to give Jack White credit for his work, although he should have just stuck with those photos, IMO.  But I also have some contributions of my own.  The newspapers that Oswald holds up have several anomalies to them.  One is the newspapers themselves.  Oswald poses with his guns and papers, like some revolutionary, but the newspapers themselves are from the “peaceful co-existence” faction of communism, and Oswald would have known the distinction.  It would be like a gun-toting militia member in camo fatigues holding up his weapons and copies of Time and The New York Times, to show how “radical” he was.  

Oswald’s hand holding up the newspapers is very anomalous.  For one thing, the fingers are chopped off, and they don’t cast any shadow, like his nose obviously does.  The entire newspaper looks like a special effect.  The same goes for the hand holding the rifle.  Where is his forearm and elbow?  

The rifle is doubly planted.  Not only is there very convincing evidence that there were at least two rifles in evidence, neither one of them is the rifle in the backyard photos.  The serial number issue proves, to me, that there were two rifles in evidence, even disregarding how the Warren Commission switched ads to force the official rifle in evidence with the ad that Oswald would have bought the rifle from.  There is a circular strap ring on the bottom of the rifle stock, obvious in the backyard photos, but the rifle(s) in evidence show oblong side-rings.  Also, it is obviously not the same strap, either.  A light-colored one that looks like just a strip of canvass is in the backyard photos, while the rifle in evidence has a leather strap dyed black like the rifle stock.  Oswald the starving commie sure played around a lot with his rifle.  

With at least three rifles in evidence, which one shot the Magic Bullet?  The Magic Bullet also entered into the evidence ledgers miraculously.  For starters, for the official story to make any sense, that it caused both the back and neck wounds before its dance through Connally’s body, it would have had to pass through JFK’s spine, which was a greater feat than penetrating his skull, which the head shot(s) did.  The head shot bullet(s) broke into a million pieces, while the Magic Bullet remained almost perfectly intact, and then made several wounds in Connally, shattered bones, and then rolled out intact into his clothes, to be miraculously found on an unused stretcher at Parkland Hospital, with not a trace of flesh or blood on it, even after microscopic examination.  Magic indeed.  

So, for me, the chin issue is just one of many that points to fabricated and planted evidence.  I’ll agree that maybe the chin issue is not quite a slam dunk, but the HSCA treated it with strange logic, and the experts never convinced Congressman Fithian that that was Oswald’s chin.  These doubts do not just issue from the minds of paranoid conspiracists.  

Of course, I treat Gary’s testimony as fact, so I have no doubt that Oswald was not the Lone Nut assassin.  

Best,

Wade

Hi Star Mariner:

Since we are discussing the most infamous murder of the 20th century, it is very reasonable to think that the best spook resources would have been used on the photos.  As you know, there are great doubts about the authenticity of the autopsy photos and other autopsy evidence (to disguise the fact that the back of JFK’s head was blown out), and the man who performed it burning his notes afterward is typical behavior around the JFK hit.

As I stated, the chin issue is far from the only one.  Oswald’s right hand’s fingers and disappearing left arm are very odd.  But yes, even in Gary’s conversation with John Tower, the pictures were discussed as a ploy to make Oswald’s “assassination attempt” appear believable, and your scenario is plausible.  I’ll agree that it is possible that the photos are not altered, but the HSCA, among others, sure did not do much to dispel the doubts, with its water spots explanation and Penrose study, and that professor that you cite actually works with the FBI, which was involved with the JFK hit, so once again, we have an “expert” with a conflict of interest (similar to McAdams’s working closely with the CIA – I am all-too-familiar with such “experts” and “skeptics” appearing on the scene like they did and being lionized for bolstering the official story).  I don’t consider Oswald’s body shadows to be anomalous (although the pictures were almost certainly not taken on the day that the Warren Commission concluded), but the finger ones I do.  I believe that the body is genuine, and I was not very impressed with that professor’s analysis (I saw it years ago, when it was ballyhooed).  All that it might show to me was that the head was photographed at the same sun angle as the rest of the photo, which would be elementary for any forgers.

Even if the photos are genuine, that rifle is very likely not the “murder weapon” in evidence.  I am pretty confident about that.  The many anomalies about the photos and camera, as far as their provenance, make me think that they were planted to frame Oswald, genuine pictures or not.  The photos were definitely made to make it look like Oswald was some kind of violent revolutionary, when he wasn’t.  He was an expendable covert action asset, and met the fate of many like him.

On a related note, yesterday’s JFK document release went about as expected, but once again unintentionally supports the “frame Castro” angle that Tower discussed, as the Northwoods documents did.  It is somewhat amusing to see the media take that bait once again, and focus on Castro as the likely agent of murder, so that operation in a way was successful, even though killing JFK was an unintended outcome for the chumps who were involved.

Best,

Wade

Hi Star Mariner:

As you know, you can’t dive very far into the JFK hit before seeing evidence disappear and magically appear all the time.  Witnesses were silenced, had their testimony altered by the Warren Commission, many came to untimely ends, and the like.  So much about it smells bad.  Having a man who despised JFK, whom JFK fired, heading the “investigation” and who covered the CIA’s tracks at every turn – what an abomination.  Of course, LBJ got a friendly wink as he was being sworn in.  The evil goes on and on.  I lived in Texas because of LBJ, and even spent some weeks in Dallas.  The Magic Bullet in evidence is not the one described by the orderly who found it, etc.

On the Carcano, its provenance is extremely dubious, beginning with the ad that Oswald would have used to order it.  Yes, I am well aware of the initial “Mauser” identification.  Gary’s JFK adventures began with the conversation that arms experts around the country were having right after the assassination: there was no way that Oswald could have made those shots from that position with that Carcano.  There were no fingerprints on the rifle, as if Oswald carefully wiped down the Carcano after using it, but a palm print miraculously appeared on it after he was dead, “discovered” by the FBI.  

As you know, the controversy is fierce on these issues, with Warren Commission apologists going after the independent researchers, with the conspiracy advocates fighting with each other, each with his/her pet theory and favorite evidence, etc.  What a circus.  I have given my general views on the situation.  

So, yes, the rifle in the backyard photos is not the one discovered in the depository, and Oswald was not even in the sniper’s nest when whatever shots were fired from the window were made.  He was definitely not in on the real hit, so he was somehow redirected, such as sitting in the depository lunchroom, waiting for a call, while the real hit played out, and he soon realized that he had been had.  The real assassins tried to kill him as he fled, but policemen Tippit was killed instead.  I have tried to imagine what Oswald must have been thinking.  He had to be silenced by the real killers, and quickly, and he was.  Ruby was a big-time mobster, and mobster attorney Belli (he wanted a $250K retainer to defend Dennis – I didn’t have that kind of money :) ) defended Ruby for free.  

To me, the backyard photos are merely part of a constellation of planted and possibly forged evidence.  They had to make it all look at least plausible, but there is no perfect crime.  There is far too much damning evidence, for those who care to look at it with their eyes open.

On a related note, Hoover may have been in on the JFK hit from the beginning.  He began beating the “Lone Nut” drums on the day of the assassination, and they only got louder.  Dulles, another who was in on it, according to those taped conversations, handed out a “Lone Nut” book to the other Warren Commission members before they ever convened.  Those skids were greased from the beginning, and the “new” Hoover memo issued when Oswald died is no revelation.  George Bush the First was also involved from the beginning, according to the tapes, which explains the Tower conversation.  I have seen it argued that Tower was providing misdirection with his conversation with Gary, but I strongly doubt it.  

For me, the entire JFK affair only shows the complete fraudulence of our government.  The USA is a plutocracy and always has been, back to when its richest citizen became its first president, and used his office to steal even more and set the blueprint for stealing a continent.  What a saint.  

JFK was the last president who thought that he could make a dent.  All presidents since then have been puppets and know it, with perhaps the exception of Trump, but if he hasn’t figured it out yet, he will: he is relatively powerless and completely in the dark on the important issues, and chief of which is the subject of the technology that can usher in a new Epoch of the human journey.  Everything else pales beside that.  No president has come within a country mile of that knowledge.  

Best,

Wade

Hi:

Today is the 50th anniversary of Robert F. Kennedy’s murder.  I recall seeing my mother watch JFK’s funeral when I was five, but I was ten when RFK was murdered, only an hour’s drive from where I lived, and it is a vivid memory.  If anybody thinks that one of those murders was due to a conspiracy, they have to suspect that both were.  The Kennedy family themselves thinks that they were related.  A person’s head has to be buried deeply in the sand to not suspect that those murders were related.  But, amazingly, I have encountered people who think that they are unrelated crimes, even though they think that they solved JFK’s murder.  That is a close cousin to the tunnel vision that has plagued scientific specialists, which Bucky Fuller said was encouraged by the ruling class, to keep scientists lost in the weeds, never seeing the bigger picture.  Generalists see the connections, and comprehensive thinkers try to combine the detail-orientation of the specialist with the big-picture orientation of the generalist, which is no easy trick, but scientists today are trained to think that way, although their naïveté is a big problem, which helps to prevent them from truly understanding how our world works.

It is not hard at all to see the connections between the deaths of JFK and RFK, and in a word: Rockefeller.  The Dulles brothers were Rockefeller fixers from the beginnings of their careers.  Richard Nixon was their creature.  The Bush family worked for the Rockefellers back in the 1800s.  David Rockefeller publicly challenged JFK’s policies, and after JFK was murdered, his Alliance for Progress became a Rockefeller tool and the antithesis of what JFK’s intentions for it were.  Overthrowing Latin American governments became an American specialty after JFK’s murder, and the Dulles brothers began that parade with their overthrow of Guatemala’s government on behalf of Rockefeller interests (but those events go way back).  E Howard Hunt ran the Bay of Pigs operation, led the operation that got JFK killed, was involved in overthrowing Guatemala’s government, and his statement to Douglas Caddy is amazing, but consistent with what I know.

George Bush the First was involved in the Bay of Pigs operation (and later ran the CIA and stonewalled new president Jimmy Carter on the UFO/ET issue), JFK fired Allen Dulles over it, and Dulles soon led the “investigation” into JFK’s murder, with Rockefeller tool John McCloy, and the “lone nut” angle was being promoted within days of JFK’s murder.  Dulles primed the other Warren Commission members before they even convened, sending them all a “lone nut” book.  Gerald “Magic Bullet” Ford was there when Nixon was taken out, to step up, and Nelson Rockefeller was right behind him.  Two “lone nuts” immediately tried to take out Ford, and Nelson nearly became the second president who was never on a ballot, and Ford was the first.  When Reagan became president, a “lone nut” immediately tried to take him out, and the “nut” was a friend of the Bush family.  This stuff is not even all that subtle.  

All of the “lone nut” assassins, from JFK to Reagan, including those who shot Martin Luther King, Jr., George Wallace, and John Lennon, had connections to intelligence operations.  The guy who shot Lennon worked for the organization that was run by the father of the Reagan shooter.  My personal opinion is that taking out JFK worked so well that the spooks had their heyday for a generation, taking out political figures at will, with a lone nut “assassin” served up each time.  

David Rockefeller actively managed the Empire clear into his 90s, calling Dennis at home, just before the feds ran him out of the country.  It did not matter that the sitting president’s energy adviser was one of Dennis’s fans.  The Rockefellers owned the Bushes.  The Rockefellers were involved more than once in wiping us out.  But the Rockefellers are not at the top, if they ever were.  Slaughtering American political figures was more of a domestic issue than a global one.  I’ll write more on this subject soon.  

Best,

Wade
