  1. Impeccable! Here's Myers, emphasis added: http://www.jfkfiles.com/jfk/html/concl2.htm The President's clothing confirmed the path of the bullet: a small hole in the back of his suit coat (threads pushed inward) approximately 5.3 inches below the top of the collar and 1.96 inches to the right of the middle seam (7HSCA83), a corresponding hole in the President's shirt located 5.75 inches below the collar and 1.3 inches to the right of the midline (CD205, p.153-54) (photographs taken seconds before the shooting show the suit coat had shifted upward on the President's back, accounting f
  2. Allen and John Foster Dulles were Harriman's lawyers before they went into Gov't., according to Rudy Abramson's biography of Harriman Spanning the Century.
  3. The place to start with that imho is the fact that Prescott and George HW Bush were proteges of W. Averell Harriman, as were Robert Lovett, McGeorge Bundy, and Richard Bissell. They all got their starts with Harriman projects: Lovett and Prescott with Union Bank, GHWB with Dresser Industries, Bissell and Bundy on the Harriman-run Marshall Plan.
  4. Allen Dulles knowingly set up the daughter-in-law of his girlfriend Mary Bancroft's close friend Ruth Paine? Which is why I think these guys were assigned to the cover-up, the course of which was determined by the fate of Lee Harvey Oswald. The architects of the Oswald Assassination didn't need to know that much about the Kennedy Assassination other than time and place. Neither Lansdale nor Phillips had ever planned the ambush of a slow moving, well armed caravan, had they? On paper, the man for that job would have been AMWORLD's Carl Jenkins, who had trained the Thai Border Poli

  6. No law had been broken. It isn't against the law to use a private server, although it might leave one more vulnerable to hacking. The GOP successfully ginned up the optics of corruption where none existed. It's pretty straightforward. Clinton was demonized the way Saddam, Khadafy, Diem, or Noriega were demonized prior to regime change. You're doing fine. I'm of the view Trump 2020 can't be understood outside Trump 2016. He used the same media strategy -- flood the airwaves with fresh daily outrage, thrill his supporters by pissing everyone else off. Comparing the medi
  7. Post the links and we'll go from there. Getting bent out of shape over a guy reading from notes at press conference is what I call a snowflake. Most right wingers are snowflakes. They get triggered by the most mundane things. Oh really? What tune did the Mighty Wurlitzer play over the last 11 days of the 2016 election? Hillary E-mails exclusively for 11 days. I thought you were a media expert. What tune did the Mighty Wurlitzer play over the last 11 days of the 2016 election? Hillary E-mails exclusively for 11 days. That's true for you maybe but I bin
  8. C - You brought it up. Go ahead and do the research and we can discuss it. You didn't think you were issuing a homework assignment, did you? I could only take the guy for 3 minutes. All the eye-bugging and air quoting because Biden brought notes to a press conference. Typical snowflake behavior. Chris, how much US cable news have you watched over the past 6 years? The overwhelming reason Trump got bad press was because he said and did bad things in order to dominate every news cycle for 5 and a half years. He wanted to keep over half the country in a constant state of o
  9. I'm looking forward to your research in this area. Keeping Iran from getting a nuke for at least 15 years was a bad deal? What about Obama's famous "red line" in Syria in 2013? Assad was accused of gassing his own people and Obama said we couldn't let him cross that red line but before US troops were committed Obama threw it over to Congress where the military option was voted down. Obama then negotiated with Putin to remove 93% of Syria's chem warfare capability. Biden must have learned his lesson if he opposed the Libya intervention. https://www.politico.com/story
  10. I love bashing Trump. I love pushing back on the Big Lies he's conned people into repeating. Defense spending nearly flat-lined under Obama before Trump accelerated it. U.S. military spending/defense budget for 2019 was $731.75B, a 7.22% increase from 2018. U.S. military spending/defense budget for 2018 was $682.49B, a 5.53% increase from 2017. U.S. military spending/defense budget for 2017 was $646.75B, a 1.08% increase from 2016. U.S. military spending/defense budget for 2016 was $639.86B, a 0.95% increase from 2015.

  11. Chris, Trump supported the 2nd Iraq War and spoke in favor of NATO intervention in Libya. https://www.buzzfeednews.com/article/andrewkaczynski/in-2002-donald-trump-said-he-supported-invading-iraq-on-the https://www.buzzfeednews.com/article/andrewkaczynski/trump-claims-he-didnt-support-libya-intervention-but-he-did Trump significantly increased military spending. https://www.macrotrends.net/countries/USA/united-states/military-spending-defense-budget Trump tried to goad Iran into war by dropping out of the Iran nuke accord, slapping them with crippling sanctio
  12. Because contempt is the only intellectually honest response to pathological lying. Same contempt I have for Holocaust deniers. You certainly do! You and Zircoff always have. I dealt with you guys for years on usenet. I know your fake-debate routine by heart. What pablum! Both of you have spent decades ignoring the First Day Evidence. You haven't earned any one's respect. Not around here, sonny jim.
  13. What information is forthcoming from people like you and Joe Zircon who pretend inconvenient evidence doesn't exist? There is no debate. It's just nutters in denial of physical reality, among other things.
