  1. I read Michael Cain's "The Tangled Web" biography of Richard Cain. I thought that it was informative enough, but it couldn't have covered the breadth of Cain's activities and interests, unless Cain chronicled them with his half-brother, which is highly doubtful.
  2. This is a good article about someone who is very tight-lipped. I followed a link in the article to a different article in the odious Washington Decoded website. I'm reading Silent Coup now, and I am interested to learn whether there is a backstory to the "third rate burglary" known as Watergate.
  3. I read Russell's lengthy tome earlier this year, and I am embarrassed to admit that I have already forgotten the alleged proof of this matter. It's an interesting book, but it just went on and on. I almost never fail to finish a book, so I soldier on until I'm finished.
  4. Thanks for posting these articles, Steven. They contain a lot of truth, most notably that the Fed's grand experiement of creating trillions of dollars of free money can't end well. It is destroying our currency and the end result will be a failure of our monetary system. And then we will be assured by people smarter than us (Warren Buffett last time - and i didn't believe him then, for that matter) that only a bailout of the financial institutions will save our economy and our country. Other than that, QE is working great.
  5. I believe that Ethel Kennedy had the RFK family estate in Va. listed for around $12 or so a year or 2 ago. I think that they bought it from Jack and Jackie.
  6. Jessie's television show was very repetitive. His brain trust team looked like a bunch of 25 year old gamers and stoners. The shows were only tangentially about the supposed topics, because they were mostly about Jessie. The fact that he was a Seal and a former Governor of MN doesn't mean he gets access to intelligence facilities (e.g. the HAARP facility), notwithstanding his self-aggrandizing protestations which follow the "don't you know who I am" meme. Jessie focused on some decent topics, including the JFK assassination, but having him prominently on your side of an issue doesn't lend
  7. I have subscribed to it on occasion because I like Texas (i.e. authentic) country music, because I like reading about Texas culture and because I like reading about the various locales in the state, but that is about it. I invariably drop my coverage at some point. We will continue to see the LN crowd and their emissaries in the media summarily disposing of the JFK assassination mystery, as the passage that Pat quoted, but their wholesale dismissals have no impact on history, on the truth or on public opinion, which is not favorable to the LN party line.
  8. I couldn't imagine wanting to watch a movie based on a book by Bill O'Reilly. I think I read Jim's review of it, which is as far as I care to go with this topic. Next up, Oprah's epistle on the JFK assassination.
  9. Israel didn't cause Somalia's civil wars, strife and lawlessness. Israel may or may not want Syria to follow Somalia's path to hell, but it isn't the cause of Syria's problems with the Arab Spring and Assad's attempts to crush the protestors through overwhelming force. I think Assad's days or numbered. Perhaps he can cut a deal like Idi Amin - time will tell.
  10. Except for books which are patently absurd (e.g. Mark Furman's "A Simple Act of Murder" or Barr McClellan's book - name intnentionally ejected from my memory), I view history books as likely containing some erroneous allegations, whether intentional or not, and possibly some morsels of truth. In reading Janney's book, I felt that there was an underlying need on his part to demonstrate a special knowledge of certain facts, many of which may well have been true, but didn't contribute to solving the murder mystery. I also felt that the parts about Mary's using acid trips to change the world thr
  11. Christopher, Gerda Dunkel over at JFK Assassination Forum was wondering last December if TJM's "Long Coat Man" might be Deputy Sheriff Clinton L."Lummy" Lewis. --Tommy Edit: I think I've noticed others wearing the same kind of raincoat and acting in an (apparently) official capacity after the assassination. Could this be C.L."Lummy" Lewis with his back to the camera? Thanks a lot, Tom. I wonder how many minutes after the assassination that this footage was shot. It seems odd that a deputy sheriff would wear a top coat and not a thermal jacket. I was 7 when the assassination too
  12. I would be interested in hearing your thoughts on the book after you finish reading it. Like many history books, it includes the spin and points of emphasis to which the author directs us. I accepted some of those (the David and Goliath nature of the legal battle which took place in the courtroom at Crump's trial) and took a pass on some of the others (the notion that using LSD can promote world peace). I am somewhat agnostic as to the guilt or innocence of Ray Crump. He certainly made for a nice patsy if the murder was a CIA hit. Janney also talks about the high levels of DOJ attorneys t
  13. I am interested as to who the long coat man in the background could be. Does anyone know the temperature at the time of the JFK assassination? Wearing a trench coat seems illogical to me unless things were significantly colder. Someone referred to him above as a detective, but, if he was, he ostensibly wasn't a homicide detective because they wore their trademark white Stetsons (or so I have read). FWIW, I think that the film captures a handoff (perhaps a rifle scope or magazine or a small handgun).
  14. If his book on the JFK assassination is as vapid as his television show, I don't think it will be very insightful. I'm expecting something as shallow as Mark Furman's "A Simple Act of Murder", which completely ignores all conspiracy-related evidence.
  15. Why are we so fat? Those of us who aren't know exactly why we are in good physical shape. I count calories and I exercise. I drink diet drinks. No one puts food in my mouth or decides what I will eat. I haven't had a fast food hamburger in 25 years. If I eat sugar, there is an exhaustive trip to the gym in the near future. The sedintary lifestyles of children and adults also factor into this equation. When I was young, my father made me work in the yard and I did yard work for other people in my neighborhood to make money. If I wasn't working in the yard, I would leave the house on Sa
