  1. I read the annual report of the Jamieson facility years ago and discovered that they had all of the technology in their Dallas facility (optical printer, etc) necessary to create the special effects needed to produce the “official film record” of the JFKA that would eliminate the credibility of “car stop” and other inconvenient witnesses. For the equipment to be so close, and the editing capability on site in Dallas to be so accessible, and for the zfilm to have passed through those same fingers suggests that this is a prime location for some further research.
  2. We’re figuring out that part of the plot was to have a movie of the big event to stand forever as a “record” of what happened that could replace peoples’ recollections of events with the “best evidence” of what happened, to suppress conversation about it. Fifty years later, the technology isn’t as flawless as it once seemed to be. The thought that two CIA employees at a film editing facility in New York might be helping to obfuscate things (divert attention away from the Dallas Jamison facility) is intriguing, for sure.
  3. Don’t forget that the Jamison film company had all of the technology on site in their Dallas facility to edit the Zfilm as effectively as any film lab in the US (they were known as “the Hollywood of the midwest” after all). The necessary edits could have been done right in Dallas, within an hour of the shooting.
  4. Has anyone else noticed that the hand gesture that Honest Abe made when he was interviewed on TV on the afternoon of 11/22/63 was more consistent with the appearance of JFK's head at Bethesda (the right side blown-out) than with a hole in the back of his head (and the rest of the head intact) that was documented at Parkland? He was describing what his film would *eventually* show (rather than the actual wound at the right rear of the head through which brain and gore were sprayed onto the driver's side taillight and officer Hargis). Maybe he was psychic as well as honest.
  5. Pat, your analysis of the 2016 election was terrific. Thanks so much! Best wishes for a fast & full recovery!!!
  6. Chris, this is the most comprehensive, clearly described summary of the stumbling blocks facing anyone who wants to understand the truth about anything. Even things that they themselves have personally experienced/witnessed! Nice work!!!
  7. I'd welcome any deeper understanding of the rest of the visual record of the JFKA. The Zfilm has received entirely too much ink (in more ways than one).
  8. I read Tragedy & Hope several years ago and squeezed the same realizations out of it. Quigley was one of the people who was a mentor to Bill Clinton and who he praised roundly for his insights and understanding of political realities. I really appreciate the extent to which several of the people on this thread are reading the same books and finding the same thoughtful, insightful information in them that I have. It's becoming a real "meeting of the minds" here, isn't it. So glad to be a part of it.
  9. Watched the HOPIUM program. No doubt that appeals to hope (for change, for justice, for integrity) have resonated with people of all sorts throughout history, and will always do so, and explains why politician/actors strive to embody it and ride the optimism it produces into office. That they are merely actors in a production not of their making is clarified by their behavior once in office....
  10. Is it possible that the "National Security State" operatives and the "fascist oligarchy" operatives are competing forces, and that the US is in the midst of a power struggle between those two forces (acknowledging that there are undoubtedly some with loyalties on both sides)?
  11. Remember that the people who were successful in manipulating voters "just enough" to get Trump elected in 2016 (read Chris Wylie's book Mind F*ck for more information about them) proved very sophisticated in their understanding of the Electoral College and how to move the levers of power to achieve their goal. The same people are probably behind the events following the 2020 election when their "plan a" didn't work. The people in the spotlight are actors -- they are never responsible for the production.
  12. I do believe that the pageantry put on display in the US Capitol on 1/6 was probably a diversion intended to conceal (not reveal) a more diabolical production that was underway behind the scenes, which was thwarted by unexpected actions that couldn't be countered fast enough to get the production back on the rails (the JFKA plotters were a little more successful). I'm really interested in knowing exactly why Mr. Pence refused the ride offered to him; suspicion about the intentions of the SS players seems a viable hypothesis. The effort we've been expending in trying to figure out what really happened on 11/22/63 seems to have been time well-spent as we try to figure out what's happening to our country right now. We need to keep the events in focus and slice up the time line carefully so we don't overlook crucial events (the best way to thwart the confirmation bias) and minimize sidebar attacks on each other.
  13. This thread is pulling pieces together and creating a plausible explanation for the pageantry displayed on 1/6 as a distraction to conceal a more diabolical process. Trump is looking more and more like a Trojan Horse that was propped up and pushed into play by oligarchs and fascists who used him to put policies and players into position that would further consolidate their power. Pretty sophisticated -- put "a basket of deplorables" on stage to cavort for the cameras while the levers of power are being manipulated deftly behind the scenes to keep the Horse in play. Ghastly.
  14. No place on Earth has a greater density of assholes per square inch than a school. Any school. And they’ve been getting more numerous with every passing generation, especially in the US.
  15. There are so many influences that shape a person's outlook and sense of optimism for the future. It has been widely recognized that our children have become more pessimistic; their beliefs about heroism and the value of risk-taking have become tainted. When my son was in 5th grade, he had to do a science project, so like most parents I suggested some ideas for an interesting project. The one he liked best was a sinister black covered box with a hole cut in it a little bigger than a fist. The project was to show the box to students in the 1st grade and compare their responses to students in the 8th grade when they were told "There is something inside here that may make you uncomfortable. Will you put your hand into the box?" The hypothesis was that the younger children would be less likely to put their hand into the black box and that the older children would be more likely to explore the box (a stopwatch was used to measure the delay in sticking the hand into the box), but the exact opposite occurred! The older children were less willing to explore the box. The 1st graders hadn't learned to be afraid, but by the time they were in 8th grade, the message had gotten through! Once courage is subverted, it can't be retrieved or revived, and the society we've created has done a phenomenal job at undermining and subverting courage. That was the point of my essay on "Emotional Memories" and why I think it's so important to give children "corrective emotional experiences" in their lives that thwart the message of fear and cowardice that are otherwise directed at them in school and the social media in all its forms. Thanks for your encouragement and I look forward to future helpings of inspirational viewing/reading!!!
  16. If we agree that the microphone responsible for recording shots fired in DP as the JFK limo traveled on Elm Street was itself moving on Elm Street, then that traveling microphone should be on film shot there (presumably a three-wheel police motorcycle). With no visual record of any three-wheel motorcycle in evidence, and the high probability that the dictabelt recordings were composites (manufactured after-the-fact), the gunfire sounds must have been recorded by a different microphone that was traveling on Elm Street and those gunshot sounds had to have been added to the dictabelt mix for some obscure reason, probably unintentionally.
  17. Wasn't the Harper fragment found a good distance (30 to 40 feet?) in front (and far onto the grass to the left) of where the limo was at Zfilm 313? How did it get there? It is definitely large enough to have been filmed in motion by one or more of the movie cameras operating at the time.
  18. Greg Burnham was able to reconnect the links to the essay I updated at his site in 2018: http://assassinationofjfk.net/emotional-memories/ He's collected a wide array of material there, readers of this thread will probably appreciate his collection of contributions. I just finished reading The Politics of Obedience and found it to be as thought-provoking as any recent reading I've done. There really is a terrific depth of knowledge in this thread; so glad to participate!!!! Steve
  19. Gary Aguilar did a video presentation on the Confirmation Bias a while ago and addressed it pretty well, I thought. It's the tendency to overlook things that you believe have already been looked-at enough while you pursue other areas of inquiry - or work to defend your previous conclusions. It's the bane of researchers everywhere, but given the competitiveness of the JFKA territory and the defensiveness that lots of researchers display toward their own theories, the confirmation bias seems to be particularly prevalent here. I understand the necessity to play one's cards close to one's chest when you're anticipating "a big reveal" in a forthcoming publication but you'd think that the relationships between researchers would be less fratricidal at this point, given the common enemy we're all up against, right? Keep smiling and stay sane!!!
  20. There have been a couple of outfits, including Scientology, that have tried to target Hinckley and medication in general for the attempted assassination of Reagan. I haven't looked into it too deeply, by any means. It's never a good idea to dismiss seemingly coincidental linkages between victims and perpetrators since most victims knew the people who killed them, right? I look forward to lots of future conversations since we share similar perspectives and backgrounds! Best wishes for the future!
  21. I didn't think Carrico was involved in Lee Oswald's care at Parkland. I've heard the report of an air embolism being involved in Lee Oswald's death and also that he received "cardiac compression" in the ambulance on the way to Parkland, which certainly could have exacerbated his internal hemorrhaging from a gunshot wound to the abdomen. That he survived so long after the JFK assassination is amazing in and of itself, given the level of planning that obviously went into the operation. The plan went off the rails while the limo was still on Elm Street and came within a hair's breadth of being exposed before it was finally finished at Bethesda and endured relatively successfully for the past 50+ years. As more time is spent, and more sophisticated analyses of evidence are performed, and additional evidence is discovered (including material that has been "laying in plain sight" all these years and overlooked or misunderstood because of the "confirmation bias" of the researchers), a clearer understanding of "what was supposed to have happened" on 11/22/63 is becoming possible, as well as a more thorough understanding of "what actually happened." I've watched David's progress with Final Charade over the past 10 years or so and I can confirm that he has weighed facts and evidence very carefully and sought corroboration conscientiously from multiple sources before adopting or rejecting any new hypotheses. He is a cautious scientist and is making contributions to the Education Forum and elsewhere as time permits and I look forward to his completion of Final Charade as much as anyone!
  22. Lisa Pease's book on Sirhan (A Lie Too Big to Fail) is a definitive treatise that confirms, for me, the fact of his being a recipient of hypnotic treatment. The connection between JFK and RFK was substantial on many levels, and their deaths share the fingerprints of the same cabal, as far as I can tell. The common understanding that "people can't be hypnotized to do things that they wouldn't do otherwise" is incorrect in that people can be hypnotized to have private perceptions of things that lead them to do things that would otherwise be repugnant to them. The clearest brief example is the hypnotized person taking a big bite of an onion and reporting that the "apple" tastes delicious and sweet. Based on descriptions of Sirhan's behavior during the shooting, and his subsequent lack of coherent memories of it, it appears that he was operating on the basis of some post-hypnotic suggestion (his examiners over the years have reportedly found him to be an extraordinarily responsive hypnotic subject). Like Lee Oswald, he was "the right person for the job" because of his own personal attributes and interests (which were expertly manipulated by persons with substantial skills and resources in the art of strategic deception). Your video selections from the Academy of Ideas are terrific resources! The thoughtful review of my essay by Dr. Niederhut was much appreciated as well. Thanks!!!
  23. The winking man is Congressman Al Thomas, at whose behest/intimidation JFK flew to Texas to participate in a fund-raiser for his interests there. If memory serves, he directed that all of his files be destroyed upon his death but someone reportedly found a document among the remainder about a pardon for someone named "Carrico." You'll recall that the doctor who stuck an endotracheal tube down JFK's throat upon his body's arrival at Parkland was named "Carrico" and that he did this medical procedure claiming that JFK appeared to still be alive upon arrival at Parkland, even though there was no pulse, no detectable respiratory activity for several minutes (he was blue from anoxia as a result), his pupils were fixed, dilated and divergent, etc. Al was a peach, for sure, and a good friend of Lyndon's as this startling picture reveals. I believe that David Lifton was the first to publish this picture in Best Evidence, and he reportedly got a stunned inquiry from the photographer, Stoughton, who reportedly wanted to know "Where did you get that picture?!"
  24. Chris, thanks so much for resurrecting my essay from 2012. I hope the updated version from 2018 that Greg Burnham posted on his website becomes available again. We seem to have been reading many of the same books! If you haven't examined Chris Wylie's book Mindf*ck about Cambridge Associates and the orchestration of the 2016 US Presidential election and Brexit vote in the UK, you should definitely check it out. The extent to which people are suggestible is wildly under-estimated by the general public. I've had over 100 hours of training in clinical hypnosis technology and when you combine that awareness with the ability to selectively target minds that are exquisitely vulnerable to subtle psychological persuasion, you will realize exactly how powerful Facebook and Twitter are in the realm of consensus-building and driving the behavior of targeted individuals toward particular actions. Trump was more of a "trojan horse" for the people who orchestrated his run for the Presidency and his legacy of Supreme Court appointments and other bureaucratic activities was the true purpose and value of his Presidency, after all is said and done. We were played by those people and more than a few of us were swayed in critical decision making at a specific point in time to put him over the top and into office. That play will certainly happen again and again in the future (the past is the best predictor of the future, after all). I am thankful to find myself among the JFK research community and deeply appreciate the extent to which people have found my perspective and analyses to be helpful! Best wishes always!!!
  25. I'm no mastermind, and the puerile ad hominem attacks that pop up periodically on this thread reflect badly on the sender, yet they persist, unfortunately. Very nearly a laugh, but they're really a cry. I do think that Jamey is absolutely correct as to the motivation of the plotters to "send a message" to the world at large. There are lots of ways to get rid of someone you don't like. To do it in the way that they did it to JFK can only be interpreted as viciously vindictive. His killing was far from an amateur affair; it was grotesquely configured that way and that underscores both the depth of the planning that went into it and the power behind it.
