Halliburton and the JFK assassination

Recommended Posts

There may be a more direct and tangible relationship between Halliburton and Dealey Plaza than just 'deep politics' speculation.

Page 769 of CD 1322 [a list of Jack Ruby's personal effects] includes the following:

"WYLLIE RAUL

Haliburton [sic] Oil Company

Duncan, Oklahoma"

Does the name "Raul" [or Raoul] ring any bells with anyone?

Fascinating post. This is the first time I have seen a link between Ruby and the Texas oil millionaires. Could it refer to someone called Raul who lived in Wyllie in Texas. For example, there appears to be a very wealthy man called Raul Rubalcava living in Wyllie today.

There is a wealth of anecdotal and circumstantial evidence that Ruby was as well connected to big oil money as he was to Dallas law enforcement.

By his own admission, Ruby went to the Hunt building just prior to the assassination, ostensibly to drive a new female acquaintance named Connie Trammell for a job interview. It has been suggested - with reason - that Ruby's name was expunged from the Hunt Oil visitors' registry on that date, meaning that Ruby would have visited at least one of the Hunts at the very time a Hunt fils was helping draft and pay for the black-bordered anti-JFK newspaper ad that ran on the day of his arrival in Dallas. Lamar Hunt's phone number was among Ruby's effects. FBI interest in the above was superficial.

According to an FBI interview with a conman who worked with Ruby on sports-betting scams, the two of them waxed a number of Dallas oil men for big money, including the elder Hunt. FBI efforts to corroborate this allegation don't exist, in the extant record.

There are FBI reports indicating an otherwise unplumbed relationship between Ruby and Clint Murchison Jr. FBI efforts to corroborate this allegation don't exist, in the extant record.

When asked to list his closest friends in Dallas, Ruby provided a list that included Gordon McClendon and Dewey Groom. Both names were expunged prior to publication of the list in the Warren Commission volumes. Though much of McClendon's money came from other interests, he also made money by dabbling in oil. As McClendon was a candidate for the Democratic party's primary Senate nomination - had he succeeded, he would have ousted sitting Democratic Senator Yarborough - one might have anticipated the FBI would plumb the relationship between the two men. If there is a single Bureau interview with McClendon, I have yet to find it.

While it strikes one unsurprising that a social-climbing aspirant to "class" like Ruby would have been acquainted with the underbelly of big oil money, I was disturbed to see the official FBI effort undertaken to wash from the record any trace of those connections. One assumes that once it was officially decided Ruby must be depicted, of necessity, as another lone nut, all evidence even suggesting anything to the contrary was scuttled, including Ruby's own role as a one-time Bureau informant.

If Permindex was indeed a Swiss Firm that attempted to assassinate DeGaulle,

and Dresser shows a Harriman Company going into Halliburton, then

the links are there to see.

Jack Ruby had Raul, Wyllie in his effects, the man from Halliburton.

George Bush Sr. worked for Dresser.

Dresser was probably his domestic cover during his CIA stint in the 1960's.

These corporate private board interests (Anne Armstrong, Hunt family, Bush family) privatized and corrupted the huge and secretive US arms industry.

That should be clear, the relation between these 1960s Brown and Root activities

and today's rampant triumphalism on the part of Cheney and the Halliburton.

Excellent information, Shanet!
