  1. I need to check and make sure what format there is for the session, so much is Zoom these days its become sort of default but now that I think about it I'm not sure - will ask.
  2. Much appreciated Anthony! And to follow up on David's post and for anyone reading it now one of the key points to consider is the New Orleans - Miami linkage involving the Rodriguez brothers - Arnesto (sometimes spelled Ernesto) and Emilio. Connecting Oswald's first anti-Castro contact in New Orleans (an individual key to the propaganda effort which later developed his Castro/Cuba image) with a senior SAS field officer in Miami, an individual close to both David Morales and Tony Sforza and involved in active political action work against Cuban foreign officers both at the UN and in Mexico City is critical to understanding how the conspiracy jelled in the early fall of 1963. And if David keeps working, we may be able to further develop yet another lead that will trace directly back to the operations group at WAVE circa September, 1963.
  3. That looks like a good take Vince, it just makes no sense she did not cross check her JFK related interviews information with you given that she was aware of your work....not like it would be hard to find you.
  4. Vince, I'm sorry to say but to me this makes it far worse for her work and reputation. It would be one thing to make the blunder of a poor literature search and miss your work. But to me its much more egregious not to investigate it in detail, to actually interview you, and to take into account some of your key interviews findings. For that matter I could even have seen her asking to peer review relevant portions related to specific agents and outstanding questions. What that means to me is a lack of rigor and balance - clearly a good call for publicity, sales and income but not so much so in regard to JFK and real history...
  5. I fail to see how any serious author, who should begin with a literature search, could have failed to pick up your work and make some contact....certainly raises questions about the depth of her research.
  6. Well that's a relief, what a strange day - thanks Vince, I don't think Rex ever got a reply from customer support, looks like you got their attention! Glad you got started on Tipping Point Ron, hope you enjoy it... Larry
  7. It's very strange, for me Tipping Point went first and has stayed gone all day.....several other books have gone off, come back, gone off again, back...etc. Tipping Point still remains gone though.
  8. Thanks Vince I will share that with Rex, he has had no response from Amazon yet. That reply does make it sound like more of a hack of some sort?
  9. I've been having problems with book searches and also with just the listings on my authors page. Tipping Point disappeared for awhile earlier while Creating Chaos eBook version disappeared, and this morning the print version has been off and on at various times. Amazon also removed the print version of Unidentified...and all this is happening with no notification to publishers so I have no clue.
  10. Its not just you Vince, I found that both Tipping Point and Creating Chaos had disappeared off Amazon this morning. Don't know if its a hack or some new Amazon policy but its pretty frustrating and I don't know when others might disappear as well.
  11. Totally agree with the idea of a diversion to Burkley and that Burkley had significant knowledge of the evidence for multiple shooters...
  12. Great, thanks Denny, certainly I'm happy to discuss it and kick around issues and the thinking behind parts of it - clearly its not always possible to detail the backstory behind all the content. I tried to do that this time with a more extensive set of commentary in the end notes so I hope that helps. But I'm always available here or vie email.
  13. I'm very glad to hear that Joe, strangely we did not get a pre-release copy for review so I have not seen it yet - however my regular purchased copy is supposed to be here on Monday according to the shipping tracker. If you want to chat while reading it just message me or drop me an email... -- Larry
  14. Hi Hugo, I hope you receive your copy and find it a good read. Unfortunately we are having some problems with Amazon fulfillment and communicating with them is always challenging. I've yet to receive my own print copy even though I ordered one immediately - the good news is that its available for a read on the Mary Ferrell Foundation and we have uploaded the print manuscript files to Amazon (Kindle should go in this weekend). In my past experience publishing via Amazon can go smoothly - or not. This time it seems to be the latter.
  15. A great post Benjamin, I hope it gets the serious discussion it deserves. I happened to pick the phrase "tipping point" in terms of motive and timing but operationally I think you are right on the money with "piggybacking". I have no doubt that the conspirators piggybacked on a number of things the CIA was doing with Oswald's identity by the summer of 1963, some or all of which he knew little to nothing about. The CIA, as with all the really professional intelligence agencies, are really good at "using" people in that fashion. Personally I think that after his return most of Oswald's direct cooperation was with the FBI but that's another story. I would also endorse the fact that the Dallas attack was in a since a "small" conspiracy, involving only a handful of individuals with full knowledge, how it might have been incited or otherwise enabled is another story as well, but I really see it as a ninety day sort of thing from an operational standpoint. Don't mean to tread on you post but I did want to jump in and support it, especially in terms of "piggybacking".
  16. Not really sure how long that twill take Pete, of course it actually just went live on Amazon U.S. two days ago and we are still wrestling with getting the Kindle version up. I've never timed it but I seem to recall in the past its taken a month or two for my books to make it to Amazon U.K.
  17. I'm afraid the subject of the rear exit looks no clearer now than it did the last time I looked at it, many years ago. As with much of the official evidence there are just too many outstanding questions to resolve at this distance in time. In reality a rear exit makes a lot of sense and its hard not to see it in a plan. The only option is to have employees inside the building take on the roles that were going to be required in terms of planting evidence and other activities (either shooting or simply making themselves visible as a diversion) - and then be hard core enough to bluff their way out of questioning afterwards.
  18. That's much appreciated Gene and I can promise that its as real in a historical sense as I can make it. Real people, real backstories and in particular, the dangerous reality of extremely committed individuals whose anger had been fueled again and again - until it reached the boiling point in the fall of 1963.
  19. Tipping Point is now available for order in the print version on Amazon. https://www.amazon.com/Tipping-Point-Conspiracy-Murdered-President/dp/173644090X/ref=sr_1_2?dchild=1&keywords=tipping+point+hancock&qid=1617207373&s=books&sr=1-2#reader_173644090X It contains some new commentary and elaboration based on feedback on the serialized version as well as some new information, including discussion of one new and possibly significant CIA officer who has never really been on the radar before this (thanks to the ongoing work of David Boylan). It also contains an index which should prove very useful to serious readers - the indexing does include a number of crypts as well). Rex is working on getting the Kindle version up (but working with Amazon on Kindle can be challenging) as well as further information on the book and some early reviews by some familiar names in the JFK community. As always, good reviews from readers are always most welcome. As noted earlier, all proceeds from the sales will go to the work of the Mary Ferrell Foundation.

  21. About the only thing I could add is that I have no doubt we do not know all of what those three men actually saw, nor herd, nor what they suspected. Which I personally feel included having seen Lee Oswald down stairs just as he described.....
  22. Chris, we had a great presentation on just that by Greg Wagner at last fall's Lancer conference and of course I wrote about it when I was working on SWHT. But it has not been my focus for many years now (same as the the back door issue itself for that matter). Without digging back into it I would say that Carolyn Walthers and Arnold Rowland seemed credible to me and were certainly close enough to have seen what they described; they can also be proven to have been there that afternoon. In the meantime I'd invite Greg to post here in regard to his conclusions on the Window Watchers and who his best picks are - he has looked into it much more recently than I have but its been a discussion on this forum for ages as you can see in the link below:
