  1. Includes Cheatles's unexpected reference to "Continuity of Government."
  2. Here is CBS, the CIA's favourite TV and radio network, "hiding" the Zapruder film on Monday, 25 November: 1) Dan Rather’s 1st televised description of the Zapruder film: 1. We have just returned from seeing a complete motion picture of the moments preceding, and the moments of, President Kennedy’s assassination and the shooting of Texas Governor John Connally. 2. Here is what the motion picture shows. 3. The automobile, the black Lincoln convertible, with the top down - carrying, in the front seat, two secret service agents; in the middle, or jump seat, the Governor and Mrs. Connally; and, in the rear seat, President and Mrs. Kennedy – made a turn off of Houston Street, on to Elm Street. 4. This was a left turn and was made right in front of the building from which the assassin’s bullet was fired. 5. After making the turn, and going about 35 yards from the corner of the building – six stories up in which the assassin had a window open – and keep in mind here that President Kennedy and Governor Connally are seated on, both on the same side of the car, on the side facing the building: Mrs. Kennedy and Mrs. Connally are on the side of the car away from the assassin. 6. About 35 yards from the base of the building, President Kennedy, in the film, put his hand up to the right side of his face, the side facing the assassin. 7. He seemingly wanted to brush back his hair, or perhaps rub his eyebrow. 8. Mrs. Kennedy at this moment was looking away, or looking straight ahead. 9. She was not looking at her husband. 10. At that moment, when the President had his right hand up to this side of his face (gestures), he lurched just a bit forward. 11. It was obvious that the shot had hit him. 12. Mrs. Kennedy was not looking at him, nor did she appear to know at that instant that her husband had been hit. 13. Governor Connally, in the seat immediately in front of the President, apparently either heard the shot or sensed that something was wrong because, Governor Connally, with his coat open, his button was undone, turned in this manner (turns back to his right with right arm extended), his hand outstretched, back toward the President; and the Governor had a look on his face that would indicate he perhaps was saying “What’s wrong?” or “What happened?” or “Can I help?” or something. 14. But as Governor Connally was turned this way, his white shirt front exposed well to the view of the assassin, the Governor was obviously hit by a bullet, and he fell over to the side. 15. Governor Connally’s wife, immediately, seemingly instantaneously, placed herself over her husband in a protective position, it appeared; and as Governor Connally fell back, President Kennedy was still leaned over. 16. At that moment another bullet obviously hit the head of the President. 17. The President’s head went forward, violently, in this manner (gestures). 18. Mrs. Kennedy, at that instant, seemed to be looking right-square at her husband. 19. She stood up. 20. The President slumped over to the side and, I believe, brushed against Mrs. Kennedy’s dress. 21. Mrs. Kennedy immediately turned and flung herself on the trunk of the automobile, face-down on the trunk, almost on all-fours. 22. The First Lady appeared to be either frantically trying to get the secret service man who was riding on the bumper of the car - the single secret service man riding on that bumper - to come into the car or to tell him what had happened; or perhaps, from the picture, it appeared she might have been trying to get out of the car some way. 23. The car never stopped. 24. The secret service man in the front seat had a telephone in his hand. 25. The car…its acceleration increased rapidly and it disappeared under an underpass. 26. Three shots - the first one hitting President Kennedy, the second one hitting Governor Connally, the third one hitting the President – consume, possibly, five seconds. 27. Not much more than that, if any. 28. That is the scene shown in about twenty seconds of film that the FBI has in its possession. 29. The film was taken by an amateur photographer who was in a very advantageous position, and who had his camera trained on the President’s car from the time it made the turn in front of the assassin until it disappeared on its way to the hospital. 30. This is Dan Rather in Dallas. 2) Dan Rather’s 2nd televised description of the Zapruder film: 1. We have just returned from seeing a complete motion picture of the moments immediately preceding, and the moments of, President Kennedy’s assassination. 2. The motion picture shows the limousine carrying, in the front seat, two secret service men; in the middle, or jump seat, Governor and Mrs. Connally; and, in the rear seat, President and Mrs. Kennedy; a single secret service man standing on the back bumper; the top of the black Lincoln convertible down. 3. The car made a turn, a left turn, off of Houston Street, on to Elm Street, on the fringe of Dallas’ down-town area; that turn made directly below the sixth floor window from which the assassin’s bullets came. 4. After the left turn was completed, the automobile, with only one car in front of it - a secret service car immediately in front – the President’s car proceeded about 35 yards from the base of the building in which the assassin was. 5. President Kennedy and Governor Connally were seated on the same side of the open car, the side facing the building: Mrs. Kennedy and Mrs. Connally on the side of the car opposite the assassin. 6. President Kennedy is clearly shown to put his right hand up to the side of his face as if to either brush back his hair, or perhaps rub his eyebrow. 7. Mrs. Kennedy at that instant is looking away, and is not looking at the President. 8. At almost that instant, when the President has his hand up to this side of his face (gestures), he lurches forward something in this manner (gestures): The first shot had hit him. 9. Mrs. Kennedy appeared not to notice. 10. Governor Connally, in the seat right in front of the President – by the way, the Governor had his suit coat open, his suit was not buttoned – perhaps either heard the shot or somehow he knew something was wrong because the picture shows just after that first shot hit the President, the Governor turned in something this manner, with his right arm stretched back toward the President, as if to say “What’s wrong?” or “What happened?” or say something. 11. It exposed the entire white front shirt of the Governor to the full view of the assassin’s window; and as the Governor was in this position, and President Kennedy behind him was slumped slightly over, a shot clearly hit the front of Governor Connally; and the Governor fell back over towards his wife. 12. Mrs. Connally immediately put herself over her husband in a protective position, and as she did so, in the back seat, this time with Mrs. Kennedy’s eyes apparently right on her husband, the second shot – the third shot in all – the second shot hit the President’s head. 13. His head went forward, in a violent motion, pushing it down like this (leans forward, lowering his head as he does so). 14. Mrs. Kennedy was on her feet immediately. 15. The President fell over in this direction (leans to his left). 16. It appeared his head probably brushed or hit against Mrs. Kennedy’s legs. 17. The First Lady almost immediately tried to crawl on – did crawl on - to the trunk of the car, face-down, her whole body almost was on that trunk, in something of an all-fours position. 18. She appeared to be either trying to desperately get the attention of the secret service man on the back bumper, or perhaps she was stretching out toward him to grab him to try get him in. 19. Perhaps even trying to get herself out of the car. 20. The car was moving all the time, the car never stopped. 21. The secret service man on the back bumper leaned way over and put his hands on Mrs. Kennedy’s shoulders – she appeared to be in some danger of falling or rolling off that trunk lid. 22. He pushed her back into the back seat of the car. 23. In the front seat, a secret service man with a phone in his hand. 24. The car speeded up and sped away. It never stopped, the car never paused. 25. That’s what the film of the assassination showed. 26. The film was taken by an amateur photographer who had placed himself in an advantageous position: eight millimeter color film. 27. This is Dan Rather in Dallas. 3) Dan Rather’s 3rd televised description of the Zapruder film (Ken Rheberg: Dan Rather described the Zapruder film THREE separate times on CBS-TV Monday 11/25/63. The final report was televised at approximately 8:26PM EST Source: http://educationforum.ipbhost.com/index.php?showtopic=12216&p=262821 Post #249, 17 November 2012, within the thread: Was Muchmore’s film shown on WNEW-TV, New York, on November 26, 1963?) Transcript of 3rd description on line: http://www.etcfilmunit.com/Cronkite.html I-Accuse.com 1. The films we saw were taken by an amateur photographer, who had a particularly good vantage point, just past the building from which the fatal shot was fired. 2. The films show President Kennedy's open, black limousine, making a left turn, off Houston Street on to Elm Street on the fringe of downtown Dallas, a left turn made just below the window in which the assassin was waiting. 3. About 35 yards past the very base of the building, just below the window, President Kennedy could be seen to, to put his right hand up to the side of his head to, either brush back his hair or perhaps rub his eyebrow. 4. President Kennedy was sitting on the same side of the car as the building from which the shot came. 5. Mrs. Kennedy was by his side. 6. In the jump seat in front of him, Mrs. Connally, and Governor Connally, Governor Connally on the same side of the car as the president. 7. And in the front seat, two Secret Service men. 8. Just as the president put that right hand up to the side of his head, he, you could see him, lurch forward. 9. The first shot had hit him. 10. Mrs. Kennedy was looking in another direction, and apparently didn't see, or sense that first shot, or didn't hear it. 11. But Governor Connally, in the seat in front, appeared to have heard it, or at least sensed that something was wrong. 12. The Governor's coat was open. 13. He, he reached back in this fashion, exposing his white shirt front to the assassin’s window, reached back as if to, to offer aid or ask the president something. 14. At that moment, a shot clearly hit the governor, in the front, and he fell back in his seat. 15. Mrs. Connally immediately threw herself over him in a protective position. 16. In the next instant, with this time Mrs. Kennedy apparently looking on, a second shot, the third total shot, hit the president's head. 17. He, his head can be seen to move violently forward. 18. And, Mrs. Kennedy stood up immediately; the president leaned over her way. 19. It appeared that he might have brushed her legs. 20. Mrs. Kennedy then, literally, went on the top of the trunk, of the Lincoln car, put practically her whole body on the trunk. 21. It, it appeared she might have been on all fours, there, reaching out for the Secret Service man, the lone Secret Service man who was riding on the bumper of the car, the back bumper on Mrs. Kennedy's side. 22. The Secret Service man leaned forward and put his hands on Mrs. Kennedy's shoulder to push her back into the car. 23. She was in some danger, it appeared, of rolling off or falling off. 24. And when we described this before, there was some question about what we meant by Mrs. Kennedy being on the trunk of the car. 25. Only she knows, but it appeared that she was trying desperately to, to get the Secret Service man's attention or perhaps to help pull him into the car. 26. The car never stopped, it never paused. 27. In the front seat, a Secret Service man was, was on the telephone. 28. The car picked up speed, and disappeared beneath an underpass. 29. This is Dan Rather in Dallas. CBS planned to show the Zapruder film on Monday, 25 November, not "hide" it.
  3. Trump on Taxes, Tariffs, Jerome Powell and More He keeps circling back to William McKinley, who he says raised enough revenue through tariffs during his turn-of-the-20th-century presidency to avoid instituting a federal income tax yet never got the appropriate credit. https://www.bloomberg.com/features/2024-trump-interview/ The gulf between Trump and the Wall Street establishment encapsulated!
  4. The building consensus on the location of the real assassin: https://youtu.be/P6hTbo6IKSI?si=IHExUXQXU9ye7RD6 Below, Robert Barnes’ overview, which has the great merit of explaining the otherwise inexplicable attempt to link the patsy to Iran, a country now much, and entirely coincidentally, on Anthony Blinken’s mind https://www.zerohedge.com/geopolitical/distraction-blinken-says-iran-just-1-2-weeks-away-producing-material-nuclear-weapon https://www.youtube.com/live/fp4KvbRlD0Q?si=KgQ4psW__PBeCnmi An early, and appropriately, satirical take on the garbage served up by MSM: "The Script" For Trump's Assassination Plot Needs Rewriting... https://www.zerohedge.com/political/script-trumps-assassination-plot-needs-rewriting
  5. From our own correspondent [Louis Heren], “Washington Inquiry into CIA Activities in Laos,” The Times, Wednesday, 31 May 1962, p.11 Washington, May 30 – The Administration is conducting an investigation into the activities of the Central Intelligence Agency in Laos. Both President Kennedy and Mr Averell Harriman, the Assistant Secretary of State for Far Eastern Affairs, were perturbed by the report published in this correspondence last Thursday, and investigations are now under way. Your Correspondent reported that CIA agents who helped to bring about the downfall of Prince Souvanna Phouma in 1960 were long suspected of influencing and strengthening the resistance of the right wing to a political solution; that apparently the evidence showed that CIA agents opposed the official American objective of trying to establish a neutral Government, and that it was believed they provided General Phoumi Nosavan with some funds after the suspension in February of the monthly subsidy of $3m. (more than £1m.) It is understood that the American Embassy in Vientiane has reported there is no evidence of the agency disregarding official policy. The Ambassador is believed to have expressed his confidence that all arms of the United States Government in Laos, including those responsible for military and civil assistance as well as intelligence, are loyally carrying out official policy. AGENTS NOT WITHDRAWN It is admitted that officers and agents who were close to General Phoumi when he overthrew Prince Souvanna were not withdrawn, except when their tours of duty expired, and that the decision to leave them in Laos was made because of their usefulness; the point is made that they were perhaps best equipped to deal with the general. The Embassy, however, is convinced that they have not been involved. All this is reassuring, although in the past American Ambassadors have been unaware of the activities of CIA men placed in their own embassies, but the Administration has received information to the contrary from other foreign missions on Vientiane, including the embassies of Britain and France. There appears to be a disposition, however, to minimize the importance of this information, although it is agreed that both embassies are well informed. Contrary evidence of a kind is provided by General Phoumi himself. The general apparently was quite outspoken and made it known that he could disregard the American Embassy and the military advisory group because he was in communication with other American agencies. ENCOURAGING GENERAL The truth will probably never be fully revealed, although apparently the investigations have yet to be completed. The situation at present is that the American Ambassador in Laos is confident of the loyalty of all American officials; foreign embassies, which are not concerned with the loyalty of the American officials as such, believe that American agents have encouraged General Phoumi in his intransigence, and the general seems to have provided confirmation. The general’s remarks are perhaps not to be taken entirely at face value, but for many here the danger of employing an agency such as the CIA in a backward Asian country is that American policy can be misunderstood. The danger is enhanced when officials and agents who helped to establish the general and the right wing of the princes in power remain after official American policy has been radically changed. Here more concern was expressed than in the past because President Kennedy is not an umpire ensuring fair play between his departments and agencies, but a chief executive determined that his policies shall be carried out loyally and efficiently. It can be assumed that this determination will prevail. POLICY UNCHANGED The Administration is now anxious that this should be demonstrated. United States policy, it has authoritatively learnt, remains unchanged. As before, the Administration is working for a neutral Laos with a Government of national unity. When General Phoumi is persuaded to return to Laos, the negotiations will continue. The Administration seems convinced that the Soviet Union is also anxious to stabilize the situation, and the recent speech of Mr Khrushchev was well received. Unfortunately, because of the recent disasters, the Laotian right wing is no longer so well placed and the fear is that the Pathet Lao will increase their demands. Nevertheless, the effort is to be made.
  6. The revolt and coming triumph of the Dems' donor class:
  7. The rich? Solidly Biden, as you would expect for the party of empire and war: There are no Fortune 100 CEOs who are supporting Donald Trump, says Yale’s Jeffrey Sonnenfeld: As for your argument that we should be grateful to Biden - more accurately, whoever is actually running US foreign policy given that the POTUS is a corpse - for only killing 80,000 Palestinian civilians, continuing to occupy a third of Syria (and still stealing its oil), not to mention the sabotage of the peace agreement in Ukraine and the worst act of ecological terrorism in history, the less said the better. Biden has been a thuggish, far-right catastrophe draped in rainbow colours and gimp masks. Hunter would have done less damage, and would undoubtedly have been more entertaining.
  8. Good Lord. He stunk the place out literally? Below, a wonderful tribute to the Moonie-like cult that is the current Democrat party, that motley coalition of oligarchs, war-mongers, bankers, spooks, lawyers, toadies, back-stabbers, neo-cons and other undesirables. A particular nod to the epic contributions from that one-man smoke-machine, Joe Marlborough, who moved from sweary, brown-nosing bore to gimlet-eyed assassin quicker than it takes the cadaver in the White House to plunge down airplane steps.
  9. Who filmed the sequence attributed to Muchmore? I don't know, but I do know which organisation had the best official cover for the deployment of cameramen - and women - along the parade route: Wick Fowler, “’I Don’t Blame Dallas,’ Says Ex-Security Chief,” Dallas Morning News, Wednesday, 4 December 1963: “Presidents sometimes ignore the best-laid plans to protect them from assassins, a retired chief of the U.S. Secret Service told the Dallas News Tuesday… Baughman said Secret Service agents are trained to throw their own bodies over the person they are guarding if an attempt is made on their lives. Agent Rufus Youngblood, riding with the then Vice-President Lyndon Johnson did just that… Baughman said he helped to design the security plans for the special presidential car. Secret Service agents should ride the running boards to screen the president from possible assassins. They normally ride the running boards or walk along side the car… Police, he said, as well as military guards should at all times face the crowds and watch the buildings. There should be no camera trucks allowed in the motorcades and parades. Cameramen should be stationed along the route, he said.”
  10. It is, of course, inconceivable that multiple copies of a JFK assassination film, distributed to scores of American television stations, could all have vanished without trace. The very notion of such an effective campaign of suppression is ludicrous on its face, and without historical instance. Only lunatics, the great unwashed, and nasty people who read your nonsense critically, could possibly entertain such absurd nonsense. Alas for you, it happened, and did so to the first version of the first film to corroborate the first version of the Zapruder film. Recall that on the evening of Monday, 25 November 1963, there were, according to the anti-alterationists’ own standard narrative, two films of the assassination identified and viewed. The second of the two, the one attributed to a woman (Muchmore) who denied taking it, and snatched from under the noses of the FBI in a scene worthy of a bad spy novel, had allegedly been purchased by UPI Newsfilm, and disseminated to US television customers across the country. The segment was two minutes long, with the shooting shown four times at different speeds and under different magnifications. It swiftly vanished, like mist before the morning sun. Why? Because it corroborated a version of the Zapruder that had itself been suppressed
