I've read scores of issues of the American Opinion magazine, and several books by JBS authors. Their President-hating, Fake Patriotism is very clear to the honest and unbiased observer.

Also, the COVERT HOSTILITY of Robert Welch wasn't in his allegedly "honest" reporting of the progress of Communism, but in his insidious claims that sitting US Presidents were Communist Traitors.

It isn't really clear to me that such unpatriotic drivel should be protected by the First Amendment -- it's very close to shouting "Fire!" in a crowded theater.

Whether or not John Birch Society leaders should have been brought up on charges, I still maintain that their anti-culture was the direct cause of the Zeitgeist that encouraged and concealed the JFK Killers..

That's why we have more to fear from you than from the Birch Society. The reasons are as follows:

1. Since its inception (December 1958 but first chapters formed February 1959) virtually the entire political establishment in our country (right-wing and left-wing) rejected the JBS and its ideas as "extremist" and "irresponsible". The most well-known and influential conservatives of the 1960's including Sen. Barry Goldwater and William Buckley Jr. plus arguably the most respected conservative intellectual in 20th century America (Russell Kirk) all denounced Welch and the JBS. And so did J. Edgar Hoover!!

2. Furthermore, if you review the Gallup polling which was done several times on the JBS -- no significant percentage of the American people ever thought that the JBS was a worthwhile or respectable organization.

3. Consequently, as a society, we had nothing to fear from the JBS because everyone already rejected them decades ago.

4. When the JBS or its surrogates were brought into a courtroom environment because of libelous statements or articles they circulated --- the JBS and its surrogates lost big-time --- including the most significant case which produced a precedent-setting historic change in American libel law (Gertz v. Robert Welch Inc.). The JBS wound up paying Gertz $400,000 in compensatory and punitive damages. (In today's dollars, that would be approximately $16,753,321!!!)

4. HOWEVER --- persons like yourself POSE as patriotic and intelligent and fair-minded individuals BUT then you demand that we dismantle our civil liberties in order to "get at" groups like the JBS.

As you have written repeatedly in multiple threads here in EF, you think that Birchers are guilty of "treason" -- and everybody knows the prescribed punishment for treason. But TO YOU, freedom of speech is ONLY permissible when something said (or written) does not offend your particular sensibilities and you chafe at the notion that unpopular speech should be "protected by the First Amendment".

Why stop with the JBS? Who is next on YOUR list?

I've told you this before -- and I will repeat it now:

YOUR thought processes are IDENTICAL to not only the JBS members I have debated for the past 40+ years, your thought process is IDENTICAL to every right-wing radical and political extremist I have ever confronted or read about.

If you doubt me -- then just review the FBI files I have donated to Internet Archive in the "extreme right" category. Those files contain thousands of copies of newsletters, flyers, magazine articles, newspapers, speech transcripts, excerpts from recorded phone conversations --- so you will be able to easily recognize YOUR mentality in action.

Lastly, why stop with JBS members? Why not expand your hatred to everyone whom (as you wrote) was influenced by their "Zeitgeist"? So, for example, if someone who normally votes for a moderate conservative happens to like an idea which the JBS initiated or supports --- then let's put THEM on trial for "treason" too -- right? [incidentally, that would include ME -- because I agree with the JBS about telling the United Nations to locate elsewhere and I also agree with them with respect to the need to eliminate entire federal government agencies which do nothing to improve the lives of our people.]

Wow, Paul, your comments are truly astounding. Actual behavior is not as important as alleged thoughts and covert hostility.

BTW -- interesting how you diverted attention from your absolute falsehoods.

1. Drennan never told the FBI anything. Someone who spoke to Drennan contacted the FBI.

2. Drennan never told the person he spoke to that Walker was "planning" any murder.

3. The FBI never "deliberately concealed" anything re: Drennan's comments....In reality, the FBI immediately informed the AG, the Deputy AG, the Assistant AG for Internal Security and the Secret Service (twice on same day).

4. Robert K. Brown did not provide anything which connected the JBS or Walker to any murder plot -- thus falsifying your opening phrase, "In the Drennan/Robert K. Brown documents of April 1963". [in any event, there were no "Brown documents" in April 1963.]

Could anyone, BESIDES YOU, get so many things totally wrong in just ONE message?

Covert Hostility -- especially of the political variety as epitomized in the John Birch Society -- was what killed JFK.

It's more dangerous because it's so insidious -- so SNEAKY. So DISHONEST.

Backstabbers are always more dangerous than courageous opponents -- because the honest person has a 50/50 chance with an honest warrior.

When Edwin Walker was a US General, he was an honorable man. After Walker joined the John Birch Society and quit the US Army (forfeiting his Army pension) he became a dishonorable agent -- a highly trained US General transformed into a monstrous political activist -- not face to face -- but drifting toward the JBS mode of COVERT HOSTILITY.

(For example, in his personal papers of his Grand Jury hearing for the Ole Miss riots, Edwin Walker claimed that he was at Ole Miss "in order to calm things down." Yet he encouraged violence there, as eye-witnesses, including a living Bishop, widely attest. That's just one instance of what I mean by COVERT HOSTILITY.)

BTW -- COVERT HOSTILITY always translates into actual behavior -- though HIDDEN. Like the JFK murder.

Metaphorically speaking, JFK was stabbed in the back by sundry members of the John Birch Society.

1. It simply doesn't matter that the FBI files on Drennan were 3rd party -- they were RELIABLE.

2. Drennan admitted that WALKER was a JFK HATER, who, like all JBS "True Patriots" condemned JFK as a COMMUNIST, that is, as a TRAITOR, that is, as an ENEMY OF THE STATE. It was a death sentence to rational people (though the Covert Hostility of the JBS would simply look around innocently and exclaim, "Who, me??").

3. The FBI *clearly* "deliberately concealed" the entire Drennan File from the Warren Commission. That was the original point, and that was my point. And you know it.

4. The picayune trivia that you try to slice out of each sentence, Ernie, is obvious to most readers. You're evading the elephant in the room, Ernie -- namely -- that the Radical Right Wing as led by the resigned General Walker was known to be COVERTLY HOSTILE to JFK back in April of 1963.

And the Warren Commission never heard hide nor hair of it!

IMHO,

--Paul Trejo

Paul -- when you made this comment:

3. The FBI *clearly* "deliberately concealed" the entire Drennan File from the Warren Commission. That was the original point, and that was my point. And you know it.

You don't mean that the Warren Commission was never informed about Drennan, do you? Or that the Commission never was sent any FBI reports which contain references to Col. Robert K. Brown's comments about Drennan?

Returning to the first chapter of Dr. Jeffrey Caufield's new book, General Walker and the Murder of President Kennedy: The Extensive New Evidence of a Radical Right Conspiracy, I'd like to highlight page 34.

Caufield wishes to show that Lee Harvey Oswald interacted with Guy Banister in NOLA. Aside from the many sightings already well-known, e.g.those presented by Jim Garrison in 1968, Caufield wishes to show a negative correlation. Caufield writes:

Most, if not all, of Lee Harvey Oswald's public theatrics involved an associate of Guy Banister acting as his adversary. In April 1964, Oswald was involved in some way wiht a shooting at General Edwin Walker's Dallas home, and admitted his involvement to his wife. He ostentatiously handed out pro-Castro literature in downtown New Orleans and got into a scuffle with anti-Castro Carlos Bringuier. He debated Ed Butler, a staunch anti-Communist on the radio. In each of those instances, his supposed adversaries (General Walker, Carlos Bringuier, and Ed Butler) were all close associates of Guy Banister." (Caufield, General Walker and the Murder of President Kennedy, 2015, p. 34, emphasis added)

Caufield also notes two more seemingly unrelated incidents of Oswald's political activity in 1963, namely, his attendance at a CORE voting registration line in New Orleans, and also at a NOCPA rally. At both of those activities, associates of Guy Banister were also seen with Oswald!


Caufield is only getting started here, yet he is presenting historical material in a way that portrays Lee Harvey Oswald moving in right-wing circles -- despite the fact that the Warren Commission insisted forcefully insisted that Lee Harvey Oswald was moving in left-wing circles, although as a "Lone Nut."

In this sense Caufield presents a classic CT, but with a twist -- i.e. Oswald actually knew the people who set him up as a Patsy.

Back in the first chapter of Dr. Jeffrey Caufield's new book, General Walker and the Murder of President Kennedy: The Extensive New Evidence of a Radical Right Conspiracy, I'd like to highlight page 45.

Caufield wishes to show that Jim Garrison's failed case against Clay Shaw nevertheless provided some useful information for historians, that otherwise might never have been presented. First, Garrison identified Guy Banister and David Ferrie as accomplices of Lee Harvey Oswald (LHO) in New Orleans in the summer of 1963. Secondly, Garrison observed that LHO wasn't a Communist, but was being used by Guy Banister as a right wing provocateur.

Jim Garrison had relied on a key witness -- Jack S. Martin -- who was nevertheless also a notorious drunkard, and so the FBI dismissed these allegations quickly, and let David Ferrie back on the street. Caufield writes:

Unfortunately, Garrison claimed he did not know why Oswald had been used or what his role was. After the story broke that he was secretly investigating the assassination, Garrison announced that ultra-rightists were behind the murder. Soon after, he abruptly changed course and announced that government intelligence was responsible for the murder. His case and credibility sharply dropped thereafter. (Caufield, General Walker and the Murder of President Kennedy, 2015, p. 45)

Jim Garrison, argues Dr. Caufield, was stunned when the FBI didn't want to pursue his Suspect #1, namely, David Ferrie. Caufield then opines that the FBI's quick release of David Ferrie might be related to Guy Banister's close relationship to J. Edgar Hoover. Yet this point was confusing unto itself -- for Jim Garrison it meant that the US Government was involved in the JFK Cover-up because it was also involved in the JFK murder.

Therefore, Jim Garrison shifted his original theory of the JFK murder as a Radical Right Conspiracy, into a theory of the JFK murder as a US Government Conspiracy. The CIA, FBI, and SS were all supporting David Ferrie and Guy Banister, thought Jim Garrison, and so LHO must have really been working for the US Government.

I agree with Dr. Caufield that Jim Garrison's case and credibility took a sharp drop because of that switch -- not because the US Government cannot easily criticize itself -- but because the need for evidence gave way to sheer speculation and conspiracy paranoia.

If Jim Garrison had doggedly pursued his original theory of a Radical Right conspiracy in the JFK murder, then, when the FBI released David Ferrie so quickly, Garrison might have given J. Edgar Hoover the benefit of the doubt, and recognized that the "Lone Nut" theory was indeed vital to US National Security during the dangerous Cold War period -- precisely because of the Radical RIght conspiracy in the murder of JFK.

Returning again to the first chapter of Dr. Jeffrey Caufield's new book, General Walker and the Murder of President Kennedy: The Extensive New Evidence of a Radical Right Conspiracy, I'd like to highlight page 48.

Caufield concludes this chapter by noting that at least eleven witnesses saw Lee Harvey Oswald (LHO) in the presence of Guy Banister. Other witnesses saw LHO in the presence of Banister's close associates, such as Sergio Arcacha Smith, David Ferrie, and Kent Courtney. One witness, a US Border Patrol agent with impeccable credentials, told the HSCA that he frequently saw LHO and David Ferrie coming and going from Guy Banister's office.

Yet it was Guy Banister's stand on Segregation that shone most prominently for Dr. Caufield, and he notes that this stand did not shine similarly for Jim Garrison. Caufield writes:

Neither Jim Garrison nor the HSCA, the only ones to investigate Guy Banister, made not of Banister's extensive and all-consuming career as a segregationist...Banister's role in Senator Eastland's Senate Committee that persecuted those who challenged the sacred Southern institution of segregation -- which faced extinction under the Kennedy administration -- was also somehow missed...It became an ingrained myth initiated by Jim Garrison -- and carried on in conspiracy books -- that Guy Banister's extensive files were related to CIA activities, when there is no evidence that they were. (Caufield, General Walker and the Murder of President Kennedy, p. 48)

Actually, claims Dr. Caufield, Guy Banister's active role in Southern states' inquisitions against Earl Warren's integration movement were the true substance of Banister files, which resembled those of the SSIS and the HUAC, targeting integrationists and liberals.

CT literature to date, suggests Caufield, has failed to highlight Banister's association with a large number of ultra-rightist and segregationist groups that passionately hated JFK.

The link between Guy Banister and LHO is the first key, suggests Caufield, to solving the JFK murder. Whether portraying LHO as a Communist or as a "Lone Nut," there has been a distinct tendency to avoid thinking of LHO as moving in right-wing circles.

Over the years, as I have submitted FOIA requests to various agencies, I have always tried to include death records on persons connected to the organizations who were the subjects of my requests so that any documents released by the FBI would contain less redactions than otherwise would be the case.

It occurred to me as I was reading Dr. Caufield's book, that there may be readers here who plan to pursue their own research into the people, organizations, and events discussed by Caufield. With that in mind, I copy below one of the "death records lists" which I use when I submit certain types of requests. This one was primarily for requests on the Constitution Party of the U.S. Hope it helps someone with their own research! [The use of "RIDS Dead List" on certain names was merely to alert the FBI that they already had proof-of-death on some people because their names appears on the FBI's own internal list of deceased individuals which is called "RIDS Dead List".]

Returning again to the first chapter of Dr. Jeffrey Caufield's new book, General Walker and the Murder of President Kennedy: The Extensive New Evidence of a Radical Right Conspiracy, I'd like to highlight page 48.

Caufield concludes this chapter by noting that at least eleven witnesses saw Lee Harvey Oswald (LHO) in the presence of Guy Banister. Other witnesses saw LHO in the presence of Banister's close associates, such as Sergio Arcacha Smith, David Ferrie, and Kent Courtney. One witness, a US Border Patrol agent with impeccable credentials, told the HSCA that he frequently saw LHO and David Ferrie coming and going from Guy Banister's office.

Yet it was Guy Banister's stand on Segregation that shone most prominently for Dr. Caufield, and he notes that this stand did not shine similarly for Jim Garrison. Caufield writes:

Neither Jim Garrison nor the HSCA, the only ones to investigate Guy Banister, made not of Banister's extensive and all-consuming career as a segregationist...Banister's role in Senator Eastland's Senate Committee that persecuted those who challenged the sacred Southern institution of segregation -- which faced extinction under the Kennedy administration -- was also somehow missed...It became an ingrained myth initiated by Jim Garrison -- and carried on in conspiracy books -- that Guy Banister's extensive files were related to CIA activities, when there is no evidence that they were. (Caufield, General Walker and the Murder of President Kennedy, p. 48)

Actually, claims Dr. Caufield, Guy Banister's active role in Southern states' inquisitions against Earl Warren's integration movement were the true substance of Banister files, which resembled those of the SSIS and the HUAC, targeting integrationists and liberals.

CT literature to date, suggests Caufield, has failed to highlight Banister's association with a large number of ultra-rightist and segregationist groups that passionately hated JFK.

The link between Guy Banister and LHO is the first key, suggests Caufield, to solving the JFK murder. Whether portraying LHO as a Communist or as a "Lone Nut," there has been a distinct tendency to avoid thinking of LHO as moving in right-wing circles.

I note here that page 48 is the final page of Chapter One of Dr. Caufield's new book. We have summarized all of Chapter One at this point, so the floor is now open for comment and debate on its contents as presented here -- or other contents of Chapter One.

Regards,

Due to others of record who were on the scene, we suspect Garrison was also influenced by certain “researchers” who gained favor with the DA.

They managed to sway ( distract) Garrison towards their own theories that mostly revolved around Government involvement, chiefly, the CIA. I won’t get into individual names but they are known to most.

In our opinion, the main factor for Garrison’s abrupt shift was fear and intimidation by the Right Wing extremists in Garrisons midst. I suspect he was strongly urged, if not threatened by some influential segregationists to cease pursuing that trail.

Keep in mind who became his $ponsors …!

The left right dynamic goes a long way to explaining why.

An example is the early analysis of the rise of Nazism. East German or Marxist historians readily saw it as a result of Capitalist Crisis. West German historians shied away from that and focused more on individuals.

It is easier to blame 'the other'. One reason I've stated in the past that the conspiracy theorist is the conspirators best friend. To rise above all bias and to approach with no fear or favour inevitably lays one open for the charge of traitor and various other milder and severer forms of coercion. Obviously that sort of pressure is of no use if the truth is wanted. I've maintained for a long while that segregation is the key. I'm still a bit stunned that now this approach is being taken seriously. 10 years ago I found few, if any, willing to do so. Good, at last, I'm winding down my involvement. Too old and tired now.

John, for the record, I've always admired your long, consistent and rational insistence that US Segregation was the motor force behind the JFK assassination. I can't think of anybody else on the Forum who has advocated this approach longer than you have.

It has been a half-century -- and finally the US Segregation theory of the JFK murder has a book of its own.

This is because the countless CIA-did-it theories were always too melodramatic and fiction-like, and so unsatisfactory. All other theories were even more so.

I'm glad you can finally breathe a sigh of relief that your long-held theory is finally getting the discussion it merits. IMHO this will be the final and universally satisfactory theory of the JFK conspiracy -- simply because it's true.

Bill, did you want to add further remarks about this with regard to Chapter One of Dr. Caufield's new book -- or is this a preview of material we are going to encounter as we proceed deeper into the book?

Paul, Actually it's a general observation that has to do with the nature of the Garrison "probe". It's sudden turn away from the 'Racist Right' (or "Nazi's" as Garrison once described them)

to the "intelligence agencies" was noticeably acute. It's a theory, but I believe from our research that it's an accurate take.

I saw a video once where Garrison says (and I'm paraphrasing here) 'When you talk about the NSRP and the Citizens Councils... what you're really talking about is the CIA!... that's whats behind them.

Somewhere I have this video, but I cannot locate it. My point is that it displays his shift away from the radical segregationists, to the intelligence agencies such as CIA. You may say that Garrison merely came up empty handed in that regard, and moved onto another theory, but his own documents show he had good enough leads not to suddenly abandon it. (IMO)

Bill
