  1. For those that watched this 2013 documentary, what did you think of it? It was supposed to mark the 50th anniversary of JFK's killing and reveal the ''real killer''? Using Pres. Clinton's released 1993 files, ballistics and original FBI agent reports, as well as original eye witness and [at the time, closed] Warren Commission reports and fresh weaponry tests, it reveals startling revelations, based closely on testimony from SS agents (and Governor Connelly and other VIP's) that an agent in the car ahead of JFK was seen on the Zapruder film to be brandishing an automatic military weapon. It concluded that secret service agent George Hickey, seen holding a rifle in the car behind the President, "accidentally" delivered the fatal shot on JFK as ''Lee's'' shots also fired. The Zapruder film is probably the most analysed and examined piece of evidence in history, surely we would have seen the SS agent by now had this been true? I never believed the Warren Commission's ''report'' or that just one person did it, but this doc seems to go way into BS conspiracy-denial territory and to me smacked of establishment [or CIA] disinformation Interesting review of the doc here- http://www.philly.com/philly/news/Shooting_holes_in_theory_that_a_Secret_Service_agent_killed_President_Kennedy.html
  2. I based my opinion partly on the memory of a documentary I watched a few years ago, by (?) Timewatch, I believe? The surviving Jack was stated, if I remember accurately, in that programme to have 'refused to speak' about the affair and 'taken whatever secret he may hold with him'? But also there may be possible similarities between this and Polish General Sikorsky's "accidental" death in WW2. This article finds no foul play in the latter, though rumours of intrigue into his death, very convenient for Stalin (if not Churchill), remain.
  3. Len A) I did a search first but nothing relevant came up? B ) I personally think that, like other famous "accidents", it's blatantly obvious that it was not merely pilot or technical error. The surviving crewman refused to speak about this 'fog' and on board was the Prince on some mysterious journey, many of whose details do not 'add up'.
  4. Lennon's death "understated"? Did you live on the Moon since late 1980? Here in the UK his death reached saturation point, and then some? And still his death attracts attention- just not in the same zany American way? I think we're in crackpot territory now- it's totally different to assassinations and wotnot.
  5. So where do we draw the line? Are all rock stars in touch with some ethereal force which auto-signatures their lyrics? I think we're blurring one point into another, I answered one at a time.
  6. I appreciate your love of the Fabs and that you think about the World we cohabit (which is why we're all here), but I think we might not come from the same angle? By this time I believe that John, who wasn't talking to his old friend and rival Paul, was being antagonistic. He even said the Beatles went 'through a divorce'- we all know what they're like? Paul was always the 'stable' one, never in the papers for being out of control as was John. If he did this (I'm not refuting it) maybe he was just another fascinated famous guy regarding Crowley as were David Bowie and Jimmy Page? I think that it- like all of their album covers and lyrics- was either pure chance or a tease for fans? Nothing cosmic. I think that these people have emotional or mental problems? Something is lacking in their lives, polarised further by illness? I think George Harrison even said something like this, he hated fans by the late 60's. Again I refer to my original point, there is a case to be made of looking too hard at nothing in order to see something? Pure coincidence and happen-stance? Just as if I hadn't walked to get the papers, and missed a car careering onto the pavement? Only I ain't famous enough to make it exciting?
  7. Will, the Fabs even poo-poohed the idea of message-finding themselves! To the point that John even added the lyric in the 1968 track Glass Onion on the famed double 'White album' (officially titled 'The Beatles');'- "And here's a clue for you all...the Walrus [costumes in Magical Mystery Tour promo/film] was Paul" John confirmed this on numerous occasions when accused of messages in tracks like Lucy in the Sky with Diamonds (LSD), I am the Walrus, Strawberry Fields, Revolution 9 and their album covers- most notably Abbey Road and Sgt Pepper (plus it's lyrics)? They didn't, in my view, plant prophecies in their songs covertly, deliberately, divinely or otherwise?
  8. Shame, Eddington and Hawthorne seemed such decent guys, too? Dare I say, has the US been far different to nazi Germany these last 70yrs? And I don't just mean civil rights and Capital punishment!
  9. John, did you get that post from "Yes, Minister"? Seriously though, Lennon had defeated the US Govt in 1076 and severely humiliated them by proving in court that they (the FBI) were bugging/following him when he won his green card that year. In 1980, at the same time as Lennon, a notorious peace campaigner and a hugely influential man globally, comes out of retirement, a new US right-wing Govt rules, and William J Casey, Reagan's campaign manager and then CIA chief who oversaw a re-expansion of the intelligence service as international relations faltered between east-west. Would a socialist anti-war musician be 'allowed' to get in the way?
  10. Thanks John. So do you think that the Carcenogenic links are just socio-economically related or something more sinister and corporate?
  11. Thanks, Steve. I firmly believe that something is happening to our food and drink that will never be publicly admitted - diabetes cases in the UK have soared 60% in the last decade! Whether this is GM food or other additives to enhance flavour etc, with the Pharmaceuticals conveniently curing millions after, I don't know.
  12. I'm not saying that John wasn't assassinated by forces in the USA opposed to his Peace-minded activities, or fear of them as he came out of retirement, because I believe that he was. Reagan's campaign chief was probably involved. I just don't see any correllation between that and John's lyrics.
  13. Will, I think you're looking too hard at things that simply are not there? I have been a fan of the Fabs for decades and have lisytened intently to their 66-69 songs via headphones. Yes in the song's backgrounds there are tape loops, backward lyrics, teasers, deliberate fan provocations, murmurs, laughs, swearing and general chat, but nothing like what you suggest? Just before the main 'Na na na' chorus of Hey Jude, John utters the F word when a guitar string snaps, they laugh behind Hey Bulldog, utter comments in Obla-di, Obla-da, etc, but no political or astrological comments?
  14. Prince George, the Duke of Kent - our present Queen's uncle- died as a passenger in a plane crash on August 25th 1942 during a mysterious flight over Scotland. The plane was en route to Iceland. But what was he even doing there? Both before and after his marriage, Kent had a long string of affairs with both men and women, from socialites to Hollywood celebrities. The better known of his partners included the African-American cabaret singer Florence Mills, banking heiress Poppy Baring, socialite Margaret Whigham (later Duchess of Argyll), musical star Jessie Matthews and actor Noel Coward, with whom he carried on a 19-year affair. The Duke of Kent is also said to have been addicted to drugs (notably morphine and cocaine) — a weakness which his older brother the Prince of Wales was deputed to cure him of during the latter part of the 1920s — and reportedly was blackmailed by a male prostitute to whom he wrote intimate letters. Another of his reported bisexual liaisons was with his distant cousin Louis Ferdinand, Prince of Prussia; homosexual spy and art historian Anthony Blunt was reputedly another intimate. An unproven claim has been made that British Intelligence assassinated Prince George. The appeasement movement, involving many of the nobility and the powerful- even the [then] newly-abdicated King, Edward VIII (George's older brother)- were purportedly Nazi sympathisers. One possible reason is given by author Charles Higham, in the second, revised edition of his book The Dutchess of Windsor:The Secret Life, as serious concern over the Duke of Kent's lack of discretion and his political dealings with Nazi leadership, with negotiations towards a separate peace, to allow Germany to concentrate on its war with the Soviet Union in eastern Europe. Higham writes that the Special Operations Executive (SOE), worried that the Duke would talk about these matters once he left the British Isles, tampered with the plane before its takeoff, ensuring its crash soon afterwards, with the deaths of all but one of the passengers. There is another claim that the plane struck Wolf Rock on Ben Morven while attempting to take off from Loch More after picking up Rudolf Hess, who had been smuggled north after parachuting on Eaglesham Moor, near East Kilbride on a mission to broker a peace deal between Germany and Britain. The Sunderland was certainly heading Southwest when it hit the ground and broke up, although it has been claimed that The Duke of Kent was at the controls and he was "buzzing" his cousin's lodge at Langwell Estate, Berridale. Purportedly, women's clothing and footwear was found at the crash site by estate workers first on the scene. A possible reason for the Sunderland crashing was it was unable to gain enough altitude/airspeed after take off to clear the hillside, due to its short take-off on Loch More, extra passenger and heavy fuel load, enough to take it to Ayrshire without stopping. One member of crew survived the crash with only minor injuries, but never talked about the event and took what he knew to the grave, further fuelling conspiracy theorists. Rumours circulate that Churchill alledgedly mentioned having De Gaulle killed (unconscious mutterings after one too many?) - is it so improbable and far from his character that he might have had the Prince's aircraft 'nobbled'?
  15. When all's said and done, is this a big shock - white racists wanting to murder black people with the collusion - or at least expedient apathy- of the 'authorities'?
